Tarasov Says Americans Superior
To Student Hockey Teams in USSL



On Entire Stock

There will be a double swim
feature here this weekend, with
the Big Ten Invitational Relays
Saturday at 2 p.m., preceded by
a dual meet with Iowa State to-
morrow night.
Swimmers from seven schools-
Michigan, Michigan State, Indi-
ana, Ohio State, Western Ontario,
Iowa State, and Kenyon will per-
form at the fourth annual Relays.
The Buckeyes will bring only their
divers, though, because of a pre-
viously scheduled meet with Miami
( Predict Close Battle
Coach Gus Stager commented,
"The meet should develop into
two tight battles, with the three
Big Ten teams fighting for the
title. The other entries have
enough good swimmers to score in
some of the events, and these
three teams should have their own
existing contest for fourth place."
The Wolverines will be at full
force for the meet, and Stager
will exhibit the potential power
that is expected to repeat the
championship performances of last
year. The "M" coach, however, is
not overconfident.
Trio of NCAA Champs
Looking over the opposition, he
remarked, "Both the Spartans and'
Hoosiers should give us a close
match, and Ohio State's divers,
Sam Hall and Ron O'Brien, will
make that event tight."
Michigan State has three re-
turning national champions to
bolster its squad: Don Patterson
in the 100-yd. freestyle, Billy
Steuart at the 440-yd. and 1500-
meter freestyle events, and Frank
Modine, title-holder at 100- and
200-yard breastroke.
Indiana also boasts new stars
to strengthen its team in Frank
McKinney, AAU backstroke king;
Bill Barton, a top butterfly per-
former who has beaten Michigan's
Tony Tashnick and Cy Hopkins;
and sprinter John Parke.
Relays' Purpose
Stager, co-originator of the In-
vitational Relays, said the purpose
of the meet is to give competing
swim teams the advantage of hav-
ing one more "big" meet each
season within the Conference
schedule. Other non-Big Ten
schools have been invited to add
competition, he added.
Commenting on tomorrow's meet
against Iowa State, the Wolverine
mentor said, "I'll use this match
to test most of my younger swim-
mers." Michigan is heavily favored.

went on to say, "In Russia we

"They are truly fine hockey

to practice they would become
much better."
W hen asked about the evening's
game he said, "We play better
against the American style of play
than against the Canadian style.
Tonight we played against a Ca-

us much trouble."

"Do you think it is worth four

the writers. He again agreed with
them when they answered that
this particular game was worth

The probationary period, com-

USC will not be permitted to
enter athletes or teams in any
NCAA championship events or

of 28 cooperating events for the

to participate in any television

NCAA for the full two years; and
any further violation of rules dur-
ing the period will be cause of
a recommendation for expulsion
from the NCAA.

A far cry from the shenanigans
of the professional wrestling which
appears on television every week,
the college mat sport has its own
set of rules, which promote the
sportsmanship and competition
common in all college sports.
A college meet, such as tomor-
row's Michigan-Indiana contest
here, is decided on the results of
the eight individual matches.
Team scoring is determined by
whether a match results in a fall,
a decision, or a draw.
Five points are awarded a team
for a fall and three for a decision.
In a dual meet the two teams split
four points in case of a draw.
