Strong Nucleus,

a good chance of winning a berth
on the 1960 Olympic team.
The question arises: How did
such a pretty, perky blonde get
interested in gymnastics.

Wom- in high school," Carol explained.
inter. "I saw the Swedish National
many Gymnastic team in action one
in her. night and their performance fas-
mpeti- cinated me. I had always liked
hysical dancing, having taken lessons for
n "the five years; but after watching the

Carol attempted various routines
and soon was practicing with the
Central Michigan gym team, whose
campus is located in her home
town of Mt. Pleasant, Mich..
Developed at Michigan
For two years she practiced with
the Chippewa squad, and after
graduation from high school. she
decided to enter Michigan. Here,
under the careful tutelage of gym-
nastic coach Newt Loken and
members of his gym team, Carol
has developed into a topflight

Carol has also trained in Florida
under the direction of Pat Yeager,
Women's Olympic Team Commit-
tee Chairman.
Concerning her immediate goal
in gymnastics, Carol said, "I hope
to be able to make the 1960 Olym-
pic team. I know this will take a
lot of work, but I have two years
to practice."
Aims for AAU
Another goal of Carol's is to win
the Ntional Senior Women's AAU.
Title. She was prevented from
entering this year's ,&mpetition
by a knee injury.
To win this title Carol will have
to beat, her rival Ernestine Rus-
sell, a junior at Michigan State.
Carol will have to be at her very
best if she wants to whip Ernes-
tine, since the Spartan gymnast
won the national title this year
and will be the defending cham-
"Gymnastics appeals to me,"
Carol said, "because it is a big
challenge for the individual. 'After
working 'hard on a difficult routine
for a long time, there is a deep.
satisfaction when you are finally
able to do it perfectly."
Works: on Routines

"Wait 'til next year" was gym-
nastics coach Newt Loken's ad-
monition as he began to revamp
his lineup in preparation for the
1958-59 season.
Dealt a hard blow by injuries to'
his key men, Loken was forced to
rely on sophomores to fill the large
holes in his lineup. The greatest
loss to the squad occurred early in
the season when Captain Ed Gag-
nier, touted as one of the top gym-
nasts in Michigan history, suffered
a partial shoulder separation
which sidelined him for the rest
of the season.
Despite thescoring potential lost
through Gagnier's injury, the-
sophomore-laden team' compiled a
respectable dual-meet record along
with a fourth piace in the Big Ten
meet. Major ,.wins were recorded
against Michigan State, Ohio
State, Indiana, Wisconsin, Navy
Pier and Minnesota.

Co-captain-elect Jim Hayslett-
proved himself to be quite steady ;
in his ability to score points a c
key times during the season. A
product of the noted Indianapolis
Turners gymnastics club, Hayslett
earned recognition from Loken,;
who noted, "He has shown consis-:
tent improvement during the sea-
son, especially working on the

Leading 'the parade of top
Michigan trampoline performers
was Ed Cole, co-captain-elect, who.
garnered the only Wolverine first
place in the Big Ten match. In-
jured before the Michigan State
meet late in February, Cole
strengthened his weak ankle
enough to enable him to return to,
Moving .in to balance off the
scoring potential in this depart-
ment were Dick Kimball, who also
placed high in the NCAA diving
finals, Chuck Clarkson, Frank
Newman and Jack Eckle.
Nino Marion, a product of Cana-
dian gymnastics training, gave
Loken cause to smile earlier in the
season by" adding to Michigan's

scoring depth. Marion, winner o'
several Canadian titles, was a
strong threat in all events while
doing top work in the free exercise
Wins as Substitute
Proof of his. ability to come
through at important times came
in the Wisconsin meet when he
competed in five events as a sub-
stitute for an injured teammate.
Coming through with his finest
performance of the season, the
smooth sophomore tooks firsts in
free exefcise, high bar and parallel
bars while tying.Hayslett on the
side horse.
Showing himself to be a strong
member of Michigan teams for two
more years was Wolfgang Dozatier,
who led the Wolverines in scoring
in the Big Ten meet.

Six Fill' Gap
Instrumental in 'these victories
was a six-man nucleus of all-
around performers who pushed
themselves to .fill the very large
gap left by Gagnier.

Carol has worked this past year
perfecting her gymnastic routines.
Last fall she was able to perform
only two of the four women's gym-
nastic events, balance beam and
free 'exercise.
Throughout the winter, Carol
worked on the other two events,
uneven parallel bars and side horse
vaulting, until she was able to
master them..
Aside from gymnastics; Carol is
a very busy girl who spends a
great deal of time turning down
dates. Participating in the activ-
ities of Alpha Phi sorority and: the
Homecoming Central Committee
leaves Carol with little spare time.

Al Stall, who finished in the
money constantly during the
season, provides the gymnastics
team with balance .in all events.
His best work, done on the still
rings, gave future hope of break-
ing conference dominance long
held, by Illinois and Iowa.

tion last year 'by the polish of

sophomore, artist from Chicago,
den Gnstrated his best work on
the high bar.

tumbler, ran into trouble when
an injured ankle halted his nor-
mal ability to score. Showing im-
