Gymnasts Clash with Unbeaten Illinois

CO-OP

By HOWARD KOHN
If you happen, to be tuned in to
station WLFD, channel 6, Cliicago,
on Friday evening, you will see
previews of the Big Ten gymnas-
tics championship - unbeaten
Michigan battling unbeaten Il-
linois.
Or if you don't have access to
a mile-high antenna and aren't
too hep on hitchhiking to the
Windy City, wander on down to
the IM Building and see the show
in living color. The meet starts
at 6:30, there is no admission
charge and, besides, Batman won't
be on until next Wednesday.
:Barring a surprise supper visit
from Lieut. Gen. Hershey, the
meet_ l could be the most exciting
event on Friday's agenda for
Michigan folk. And it's the sea-
son's last one at home.
Tie-Up
Michigan has outmuscled four
1 Big Ten teams so far this season,
averaging about 185 points per
meet 'in defense of its five-year
hold on the championship. The
llini, always a top contender be-
cause of the emphasis homestate
high schools place on the sport,
have been only a shade less im-
pressive in rolling to four con-
secutive wins with an average of
183.
While the statisticians are add-
ing up the total points for each
team Friday, both coaches will be
noting and filing names and per-
formances in their heads, looking
for a pattern of clues to lead to
that conference crown.
But while all the figuring is
going on and the pencils are press-
ing hard to make the triplicate

carbon copy distinct, it will be the
gymnasts-the individual men and
their individual routines-spelling
out the answers.
Undefeated Bouncers
On the trampoline, Michigan's
national champion sophomore
Wayne Miller, undefeated in six
dual meets, will face Illinois'
"Cookie" Rollo, also a sophomore
and also undefeated. Miller ranks
second in the Mid-East in action
through last weekend with a 9.5
average (John Schmitz of South-
ern Illinois is first with 9.55),
while Rollo is sixth with 8.97.
In addition, Wolverine Vic Con-
ant' rates seventh 'with 8.95, pre-

dicting a close battle for the top
finish.
"The caliber of the athletes in
this meet should bring out the
b e s t performances," indicated
Michigan gymnastics coach Newt
Loken. "It should certainly have
a positive effect on the total score.
I think the winning team, and
perhaps both teams, will break
190."
The high bar promises to be one
of the tighter highscoring events
with a grudge match shaping up
between Illini captain Bill Silhan
and Wolverine Gary Vander Voort.
Silhan, in his senior year, is cur-
rently third in the Mid-East with

a 9.2 point average, while the jun-
ior from Michigan is .15 behind
in fourth place.
Title Prelude
The Vander Voort-Silhan match
Friday could be a prelude to the
fight for the all-around Big Ten
title since Silhan is now second
and Vander Voort third in regional
standings. Michigan State, which
is also unbeaten and is the next
and last opponent for Michigan
after the Illini, boasts the leading
all-around gymnast in Dave Thor.
Vander Voort will be challenged
by Illinois' Rollo and teammate
Ken Williams on the parallel bars.'
Rollo is 3-1 on the 'P' bars in
the conference, and Williams plac-
ed second, ahead of Vander Voort,
in last weekend's triangular with
Iowa and Indiana.
Highly Improved
"Ken has been one of our most
improvedb oys recently," cited
Loken. Williams moved a notch
ahead of Vander Voort in the sea-
son ratings on the strength of last
weekend to sixth place.
Art Baessler, who has turned
into a consistent performer on the
side horse after last year's erratic,
injury-influenced showings, has
two firsts, a second and a third in
Michigan's four conference wins.
On Friday he meets his toughest
test thus far, John Eliason, Il-
linois' only high finisher (2nd) in
the Big Ten championships last
year. Eliason was rated "among
the best in the nation" by his
coach, and is scheduled to be back
after sitting out the last two meets
with a bad elbow.
In vaulting, Michigan's Chip
Fuller and Cliff Chilvers are tied
for seventh in the regionals with
9.25 averages. In floor exercise,
Chip's twin brother Phil owns the
most impressive record of meet
performances this year with. six

firsts in six meets.
Senior Rich Blanton, given "a
good shot at the Big Ten title on'
the side horse," has recovered
with the poise of the veteran
competitor from a disastrous
ninth place showing in the first
meet of the year with four first
places in the other five meets.
Michigan, as a team, has achiev-
ed the coveted goal of a 9.0 aver-
age per event for the top three
finishers only once this season-
amassing 191.3 points for a 9.1
average against Wisconsin. Illi-

nois, incidentally, whipped Wis-
consin 182.4-173.5.
"If we do as well as we did
against Wisconsin, and I'm con-
fident we can, we should win
against Illinois," predicted Loken
yesterday. In preparation for Fri-
day's meet he staged an evening
workout with all the aspects of a
formal meet last night.
As Loken pointed out in the
team's motto for the day, "Depend
on the rabbit's foot if you will,
but remember it didn't work for
the rabbit."

BOSTON - Pit Martin scored
three goals and set up the tie-
breaker as the Boston Bruins ral-
lied to snap a long Detroit hex by
edging the Red Wings 5-4 last
night in a fast moving National
Hockey League game.
Martin, a 22-year-old center
aquired from the Red Wings in a
trade for Parker MacDonald Jan.
1, turned on his former teammates

four points behind the league lead-
ing Chicago Black Hawks, who de-
feated New York 5-2.
NEW YORK-Chicago's Bobby
Hull returned to the Black Hawks'
line-up and blistered his 46th goal
of the season last night as the
National Hockey League leaders:
whipped the hapless New York
Rangers 5-2.
Hull, who mised last Sunday's
game with New York with strain-
ed knee ligaments and was sup-
posed to be out of the line-up for
another week, took a full turn and
killed penalties as well. He scored
Chicago's first goal in the open-
ing period on the hardest shot of
the night, a 45-footer that whistled
past New York goalie Ed Gia-
comin.

for his 13th, 14th and
of the season.

Cagers Set for Stretch Drive

r ____________ _____________________ _________

---= ,i

By CARL RAYFORD
This is where the play for all
the marbles begins. This is where
you separate the champions from
i the also-rans. From now on, every
team in the conference must play
twice aweek for three weeks. And
coming "into the long stretch of
the Big Ten basketball race, Mich-
igan leads by a nose with Michigan
State in a good position to attain
a tie.
Said Coach Dave Strack yester-
day, "The team that wins it will
win it themselves; and it's going
to take a lot of stamina and cour-
age." He added, "We like to think
our enthusiasm will carry us."
Blue Improved
One obvious factor about the
race that must'have all of the Big
Ten worrying is the improvement
shown by the Wolverines. After a
questionable start and a loss to
Illinois, the Michigan team seems
only to have regained its poise and
established itself in a dominant
position. The past several games,
against Minnesota, Indiana and
Wisconsin have seen the change
in the Wolverines from an erratic
to a more steady, smooth-playing,
and winning team.
Before the Michigan cagers get
that secure feeling which is a
sure sign of trouble they should
look at, Illinois, Minnesota and
Michigan State. The loss to Iowa
Tuesday nigl t dampened, the
kindling but did not extinguish
the fire of hope burning in the
hearts of all Gopher fans. Like
the "Illini, the Gophers are only
two games behind and have the
advantage over Illinois and MSU
of going to the NCAA in case of a
tie, since they never have gone.
And only one game behind the
wolverines are Michigan State's
Spartans, the surprise of the
league in both football and basket-
ball..
. Require Depth
From nowuon, however, the
depth of a team's bench and the
depth of spirit of a team's mem-
bers will be important factors.
Coach Strack commented that
"having to rely on the bench will
be a positive factor to our ad-

vantage." As the games come fast-
er and the final efforts are turned
out by all, the top four very likely
will look to a strong bench with
anticipation, but it's up to the
starters to win. And, so far no one
in the conference has been as good
at winning as the Michigan five.
Among the team's in the lower
half of the conference comes what
has been the true enigma of the
Big Ten, Iowa's Hawkeyes. "What
happened to Iowa?" is a common
question. The Hawkeyes suddenly
dropped from a contending posi-
tion and have been relegated to
the spoiler's role. As potentially
one of the most dangerous teams
in the Big Ten, the Hawkeye five
could easily win the Spoiler-of-
the-Month award, for they face
the Wolverines twice in February.
Although not as fearsome as

Iowa, both Northwestern and Ohio
State are darkhorses. Still, the
two are feared for the last des-
perate wounds that they might
inflict' on an unsuspecting op-
ponent. Coach Strack must still
remember the loss to a mediocre
Ohio State team in last year's
Big Ten finale.
Purdue, Wisconsin and Indiana,
as representatives of the basement
community have been relegated al-
most beyond the spoiler's situa-
tion to that of the forgotten "Les
Miserables."
Scanning the s c e n e Coach
Strack could only comment, "It's
so hard to make a prediction. The
only team that I know a lot about
is our own. We are ready to make
a good stretch run. The boys are
playing well and will do all that's
possible to win it."

Our business no longer hangs by a fiber -cellujosic or otherwise. Far from it. We're
researching, producing and marketing a rich range of products-chemicals, plastics,
paints and coatings, forest products, petroleum and natural gas products, as weli as a
full family of man-made fibers - all over the world.
"Celanese' sales growth, its hefty interests in chemicals and its hugely expanded foreign
operations have already moved it into a big new class," said a CHEMICAL WEEK
special report.
During the 10 years prior to 1964, sales more than quadrupled, chalking up a growth
rate more than six times that of all U. S. manufacturing industries. And the trend is
stronger than ever, with corporate sales for 1965 estimated at 23% higher than last
year's record of $701 million.
What does this mean to you?
Since our future expansion depends on our continued ability .to develop top-notch
people, it is, after all, in our best interest to bring you along as fast as you can take it,
and give you all the support you need - in your technical specialty or in management.
LET'S MAKE A DATE. Give our college representative a chance to fill you in on
more of the specifics. He will be on your campus within the next week or two-arrange
through your Placement Office to see him. If you miss our visit, drop a card indicating
