Michigan Gymnasts Face Penn State



Michigan's gymnastic team will'
put its dual meet winning streak
to a severe test tonight when it
invades University Park, Penn.,
for a clash with Eastern power-
house Penn State.
Michigan gym Coach Newt Lok-

en said that reports from Penn
State indicate that a standing
room crowd of 6,500 will be on
hand when the two teams, each
with undefeated records, battle
for the mythical national dual
meet championship.
The Wolverines dominated the

Midwest this winter rolling to nine
victories including a 58-54 dual
win over rival Illinois while Penn
State earned the title of "best in
the East" by whipping Army in a
mid-season match.
The two teams will compete in
six events: free exerecise, high
bar, still rings, side horse, parallel
bars and tumbling with trampo-
line, Michigan's strongest event,
being excluded from the program
since Eastern teams don't com-
pete in this event.
Drop Events
To compensate for the loss of
Michigan's top point getting event,
Penn State has also dropped the
rope climb event from the eve-
ning's agenda. Penn State has
several goodrope climbers while
Michigan along with the other Big
Ten schools doesn't compete in
this event.
The Nittany Lions will be led
by all around gymnast Armando
Vega whom Loken called "the best
collegiate gymnast in the country."
The Penn State star recently re-
turned from Moscow where he
competed for the United States in
an exhibition meet.

Oldtimers Clash in Coliseum Reunion

Did you ever see two 12-man
hockey teams face off with all 24
men in action at once? .
If not, you should have taken
in the annual old timers contest
played last Saturday afternoon at
the Coliseum. A gathering of some
of the Wolverines' finest stars re-
turned to the ice for their yearly
fling on skates.
With big Spike James, '40, and
Jack McDonald, '50, manning the
nets, the former lettermen met at
mid-ice and chose up sides. And
by the time the first period had
ended, the "Blues," led by Ed
Switzer, '58, had rolled up an 8-4
lead over the "Reds." But it was
all in fun as both teams played
an all-out offensive game while
catching their breath on defense.
Old Timers Shine
Many of the oldsters displayed
as good stickhandling as had been
seen on the Coliseum ice all year.
Switzer, who played for the To-
ledo Mercuries this year, was in
top shape as he tallied four times
to pace the "Blues" 15-14 win over
the "Reds."

Hockey coach, Al Renfrew, who
saw his team drop their last game
later that night, was accustomed
to that role by playing for the
losing "Reds." Renfrew was able
to do a little better than his
charges however, as he lit the
light once in each period for the
Traffic Jam
It was in the last three minutes
that both teams brought their
entire squads onto the ice. The
melee that followed saw such a
pile-up. in front of the nets that
the scoring flood finally stopped.
