team. Cy Hopkins is faced with a'
most difficult and responsible task.
For it is up to this 21 year old'
senior from Ann Arbor to lead his
teammates to a repeat perform-'
ance as national collegiate swim-
ming champions.
Already proven as a champion
swimmer, Hopkins must now prove
himself as a champion leader in
return to the faith his mates
showed in him when they elected
him captain last Spring.
But what are the duties of a cap-
tain of a swimming team, for cer-
t tainly he does not call signals as
a football quarterback nor align
outfielders defensively as a base-
ball captain?
Captain's Duties
His duties are more of a diplo-
matic nature. As Hopkins says, "I
sort of serve as a liaison to the
coach, making it easier for him
to get through to the players."
His job doesn't end here, for he
must also serve as a combination
cheer leader-psychologist. He has
to instill his team with desire and
that all important will to win. He
must build up the self-confidence
of each swimmer individually, but
not to the point where they be-
come cocky and oversure of them-
But beyond this, he must be an
excellent swimmer: one who can
aid his teammates in developing
their skills, and one who can be
counted on to win the big race,
Hopkins proved his champion-

'Trampolinist Core, Tumbler Hayslett Lead IM'Gymnasts

FLYING HIGH--Wolverine Trampolinist Ed Cole, who won the
Big Ten title in his sophomore year, will be seeking top honors
again this winter.

Gallowing in the tradition of Ed
Gagnier, Wayne Warren, Nick
Weise, and others, Ed Cole and Jim
Hayslett begin their season as co-
captains of the Michigan Gymnas-
tics team.
Both have demonstrated the
leadership and sportsmanship sy-
nonomous with team captains
along side of their proven ability
as gymnasts.
Cole works strictly on the tram-
poline while Hayslett enters in
tumbling and the all-around
Stars on Tramp
Defying the rule that college
athletes must have prior training,
Cole has displayed remarkable
ability on the trampoline. While in
high school in Evanston, Ill., he
was a diver. His ability in the tank
was demonstrated by the fact that
he was the Illinois State Diving
Upon coming to Ann Arbor, he
branched out to the trampoline. In
his sophomore year, Cole stepped
right into the gymnastics spot-
light. He won the Big Ten Tram-
poline Championship and placed
third in the NCAA finals. He also
won the Midwestern Open and the
Junior National, AAU title,
Last year, Cole put on a repeat
performance of his brilliant soph-
omore year. Starting off by cop-
ping the Midwestern Open laurels,
he successfully defended his Big
'Ten crown, but could not rise
higher than third in the NCAA
From Indianapolis
Hailing from Indianapolis, Ind.,
Hayslett got his start with the
noted Indianapolis Turners, the
beginning place for many great
gymnasts. Starting as a freshman,

in high school, he began to work
with the Turners.
He put his outstanding training'
to use upon entering Michigan. As
i sophomore, he distinguished him-
self in the all-around events. Per-
forming admirably in all the dual
meets, he went on to place fifth
in the all-around events in the
Big Ten Meet.
In the NCAA Meet, he placed
eleventh, just one notch away
from scoring points for the Wol-
Last year, he paced Michigan to
a fourth place finish in the Big Ten
Meet with 11/ points which he

gained by taking a fifth in free
exercise, a seventh in tumbling
and a ninth in' the high bar.
Then, in the NCAA Meet, Hayslett
captured fifth in the all-around.
Hayslett Optimistic
He is very optimistic about the
coming season. He pointed out
that the line-up now is the same
as the one which closed out last
season plus the addition of some
very talented sophomores.
With this added talent Michi-
gan has a chance to improve on
last year's Big Ten performance
when they finished fourth behind
champion Illinois; Iowa and Mich-
igan State.
Taking on the roles of co-cap-
tains, Cole and Hayslett both ex-
pressed the feeling that they are
very honored and very proud car-
rying on in the best Michigan tra-
