North Dakota certainly poses a
solid threat, but coach Renfrew
says the Wolverines have "b e e n

off."

By TERRI FOUCHEY
Wolverine swim coach Gus Sta-
ger hopes the Ohio State team
won't be up for the meet at Matt
Mann Pool tonight at 7:30. He
doesn't want to be taken literally,
but even if the Buckeyes do show,
they should provide the "e a s y
weekend" Stager has been wish-
ing for.
Ohio State is in the midst of re-
building, and, as their coach John
Bruce said, "Overall we're not as
strong as Michigan and we're just
going to try our best." However,
they may pull a surprise and really
be up for this meet as they were
for Michigan State last week. The
Spartans just managed to squeeze
out a 64-59 victory over the inspir-
ed Buckeyes.
jThis means that Ohio State can
at least tread water. Some, like
sprinter and backstroker John
Hulme, can do it with the best of
them. Stager feels Hulme will give
Gary Kinkead a real race in the
200 yard backstroke, "Hulme has
gone two minutes flat and can go
faster."
In the distances, Michigan's
three Mikes, O'Connor, Casey, and
Allen can expect a strong chal-
lenge from, Lonnie Harrison, who
has done five minutes in the 500
yard freestyle. He also moonlights
in the 200 yard individual medley
and coach Bruce views this as one
of their strong events.
Jim Finneran and Jim Kirklin
have demonstrated sparks of bril-
liance for the Buckeye diving
corps. Bruce comments, "Our div-
ing is erratic but sometimes excel-
lent; we're striving for more con-
sistency.'" Wolverine divers Dick

to be wary of striking the spark.
Bruce also',cites breast-stroker
Chuck Howard and freestyler Paul
McCormick as victory possibilities.
Howard swam the 200 yard breast
stroke in 2:15 against MSU and
won by five seconds, while Mc-
Cormick is capable of winning any
event. OSU captain, Tim Brady,
is good in the butterfly, but Bruce
concedes this event to Michigan.
He feels that with Tom Arusoo
and Lee Bisbee "Michigan has the
best 1-2 punch in the Big Ten."
Ohio State, according to Bruce,
"lacks depth and we're forced to
use people in events they don't
normally swim." One reason for
this situation is the fact that one
of their better sprinters, Jeff Jack-
man, is sidelined for the season
with mononucleosis. Bruce has
been placing breaststrokers in the
sprints and as a result has lost
power in both events.
The Buckeyes overall record of
5-2, losing only to Indiana and the
squeaker to State, doesn't reflect
all these troubles they've s e en.!
Bruce is not too-optimistic about
tonight's meet, although his team
has looked good in practice. He
points at the excellence in the but-
terfly, strong sprinters, and over-
all team balance as the reasons
for the Wolverines being "too
tough for us." However, he does
expect improvement in his strong
events such as the medley relay,
backstroke, and the breaststroke.
Michigan, 1 i k e Ohio State, is
looking forward to the Big Ten
Meet next weekend. Both teams
will use today's meet to warm peo-
ple up in the events t h e y will
swim there. The Wolverines, also
are hoping for a rest.
The Buckeyes have never swum
well in Ann Arbor and aren't like-
ly to tonight. Therefore, the Wol-
verines will probably get t h e i r
much needed rest. The warm-up
for the Big Ten will come in the
backstroke and t h e distance
events. The rest period will be in
the sprints, butterfly and diving
competition.

over Denver, which has already
finished its season with a 14-

For excitement the Nodaks sport
two of the leagues top scorers in
Dave Kartio and Bob Munro, each
of whom has accounted for 25
points.
Sioux coach Ruben Bjorkman
expressed the sentiments of t h e
loyal Grand Forks fans when he
candidly summed up the Munro
story with, "We're glad he's with
us."
Perhaps the best chance for the
Wolverines against their Boreal
foe lies in the exuberant spirit of
Michigan coed Sadie Dopex,
"Tune in! Turn out! and besides
if you get bored you can always

Yost hosts Hawkeyes tonight

By KEITH WOOD
The Iowa trackmen invade Yost
Field House tonight to provide
Michigan with its final trial be-
fore next week's conference cham-
pionships. The meet has been re-
scheduled from Saturday after-
noon to eight o'clock tonight. The
chance in time, however, should
make little difference on the out-{
come.
"We haven't got very much on
our team this season. There's not
much more I can say," lamented
Hawkeye head coach' Francis
Cretzmeyer.
Tonight's meet should provide
a strong contrast to last week's
meet when a strong Indiana team
threatened the highly touted Wol-
verine thinclads. Michigan barely
escaped with a 75-74 victory.
Despite their overall weakness,
the Hawkeyes do have a few
bright spots. Carl Frazier returns
to the squad this year after plac-
ing second in the 600-yard run at

the Big Ten Indoor Champion-j
ships last year. Frazier also fin-1
ished third outdoors.
Iowa also has an accomplished
high jumper in Larry Wilson. Wil-
son, only a junior, was jumping
6-8 at the end of last' season's
'competition. Thus far this year
he has only jumped 6-4, but he
should improve as the season pro-
gresses.
Michigan's high jumper, Gary
Knickerbocker, has been consist-
ently jumping 6-8 this season. As-
sistant coach Jack Harvey c o m-
mented, "Gary has been improv-
ing and should be jumping 6-10
by this week or next." ,
Michigan will use tonight's meet
as a final preparation for the con-
ference championships next week,
at Illinois. The Wolverines w il l
Canamere dies;
Vietnam victim
George Canamere, Michigan's
track captain in 1966, has become
the first Wolverine varsity athlete
to be killed in 'the Vietnam War.
Funeral services were held yes-
terday in his home town of Cedar-
hurst, New York.
Canamere, who holds both the
varsity indoor and outdoor pole
vault records at Michigan, won
letter in track in 1964, 1965, and
1966. He was also a member of
Michigamau, an honor society at
Michigan.

probably use men in events dif-
ferent from those they will com-
pete in at the Big Tens.
Head Coach Dave Martin em-
phasized, "We will probably not
run the men in the middle d is -
tances that we will use next week.
Iowa is not a very strong team
so we plan on using the meet only
as conditioning for the champion-
ships."
Warren Bechard, Michigan's top
performer in the triple jump, will
probably not compete tonight.
Bechard suffered a bruised ankle
two weeks ago at Michigan State.
Coach Harvey said, "Although
Warren may not compete this
week, he will be ready for t h e
championships."
Even though Michigan seems
a bit over-confident, chances of an
Iowa upset are not very high.
The result of Michigan's us-
ing all their dual meets thus far
as preparation for the conference
championships has been a contin-
uous improvement in the team's
performance.
