Problems
This mood of complacency is
somewhat unjustified considering
that Jim Curzi, MSU's senior cap-
tain and Big Ten parallel bars
champ, is still limping from in-
juries originally sustained last
year and is unable to work out
daily. The injury doesn't seem to
effect his performance on the
parallel bars, as demonstrated by
the 9.35 he posted last week
against Illinois. "But," commented
Coach Szypula, "it still isn't com-
forting to have him partially dis-
abled." .
"Of course," pointed out Coach
Szypula,, "the rings are our
strongest event, but then it's
Michigan's also."
MHere in Ann Arbor, there is a
somewhat different feeling in the
air. Michigan gymnastics coach
Newt Token gave some statistics
showing that Michigan h a s
consistently out-performed MSU
against their mutual opponents,
with the exception of Illinois. This
gives the Wolverines the lead in
overall points this season with an
average of 187.81 per dual meet
to MSU's 185.09.
The statistics also show Michi-
gan to have 13 men with season
averages of 9.0 or better. Michigan
has performed more consistently
than MSU, clialking up three 190-
plus meets to MSU's one (against
Illinois). Two of Michigan's 190's
were made just last week.
The Feeling
Coach Loken's words, scribbled
on a blackboard in the gymnastics
practice room, made the feeling of
the team clear: "Utmost respect
for MSU; Give them. slight ad-
vantage being at home; should
have over 200 gym fans from here

Leading the parade of attrac-
tions was the basketball competi-
tion. First on the roll of basketball
games was the Residence halls and
Social Fraternity championships.
Wenley House beat Taylor 48-36
while Sigma Alpha Mu won over
Phi Gamma Delta, 31-27, in the
fraternity division. High point
honors for the game went to a
Wenley player, Rober McClow.
Probably, the pinnacle of ex-
citement was reached in the Social
Fraternity "A" championship as
Alpha Phi Alpha, led by such
players as Bill Yearby and John
Rowser, who got 19 and 17 points
respectively, far out-played Sigma
Alpha Mu's "A" team. High scorer
for SAM with 11 was Alan Freed-
man.
As APA was playing the Sam-
mies, two independents, the Neds
and the Kamikazes, were burning
the nets. The nets of the Neds were
just a bit hotter as they trimmed
the Kamikazes 54-50. The Neds
were led by Brian Schultze with
25 points, while the Kamikazes'
high point getter was Gerald
Lawlis.
Stockstraps Win
IIn the final competition of the
evening, the Steckstraps, with
George Pomey scoring a game
leading 17 points, set. down Phi
