20 seconds under his third-place
time of last year.
Ed Bartsch, who was backstroke
champion last year at 206 yards,.
had to settle for a third place this
year with his time of 1:57.9. In
the 100-yard event, Bartsch had
to compete with Tom Stock of
Indiana and Roger Goettsche of
Yale in a swimoff to decide which
of the three would fill the last two
places in the finals. Bartsch won
the duel with a time of 54.0 fol-
lowed by Goettsche, 54.1, and
Stock, 54.2.
In the finals Bartsch came in
fifth, timed at 54.2.
Other Wolverine competitors
were Rich Walls, who finished
second in his trial heats of both
the 100- and 200-yard freestyle;
Geza Bodolay, who finished sec-
ond to record-breaker Bill Craig
of USC in their heat of the
breaststroke; and Rees Orland,
who scored' a third in his heat of
the 200-yard individual medley.
Place in Medley
Michigan also scored two points
by finishing sixth in the finals of
the 400-yard medley relay. The
team of Bartsch, Orland, Bodo-
lay, and Walls was clocked in
USC didn't wrap up the victory
until the final event, the 400-yard
freestyle relay. At that point they
led 88-87 over Indiana, and
whichever finished ahead in the
relay would be the national cham-
pion. So, while Yale's great free-
style sprinters were setting a new
record to finish first, USC fin-
ished third and Indiana fifth to
give the Trojans the victory.
Southern Cal took twice as
many individual championships as
did Yale. The Trojans claimed
eight titles to four for the Elis.
Indiana had two individual win-
ners, and Ohio State, Princeton,
and Minnesota had one each.
Saari was the only triple win-
ner in -the meet, taking firsts in
the 500-yard frestyle and 200-yard
individual medley in addition. to
his victory in the 1650. Teammate
Bill Craig won both breaststroke
events and Yale's Steve Clark
took the 1004 and 200-yard free-
style sprints.
One reason for the fabulous
times is'that it's an Olympic year,
and the swimmers are getting in
pitch for Tokyo. The Indiana
swimmers really wanted to win,
because they have had champion-
ship material for three years, but
have been on probation.
The next step for most of the
top swimmers and many outstand-
ing freshmen is at Bartlesville,
Okla., for the ,AAU's tomorrow
through Saturday.


Gymnasts Take Third Place

Luck was a lady on the tramp
but a frump for the rest as the
Michigan gymnastics team fin-
ished third in the NCAA cham-
pionships last weekend in Los
Southern Illinois won the title
with 84.5 points with Southern
California nudging out the Wol-
verines for secorid with 69.5 to
Michigan's 65. No other team got
more than 30 points.
Coach Newt Loken's trampo-
linists kept the Wolverines close
by registering an unprecedented
sweep on the tramp. Gary Erwin
won his second consecutive na-
tional championship just nosing
out teammate John Hamilton.
Fred Sanders; third member of
tramp trio, finished third, tied
with George Hery of Iowa. This
was exactly the order of finish in
the Big Ten meet. Erwin quali-
fied behind Hamilton but sur-
passed him in the finals to win
the top spot.
Back from London
Erwin arrived in Los Angeles
from London, England, where he
represented the United States in
the first world trampoline cham-
pionship. He finished second be-
hind Danny Millman, a Califor-
nia freshman. Loken, who accom-
panied him to England, says,
"There is little difference between
them. Gary will get another shot
at him next year."
Michigan was great on the
tramp but it lost its bounce on
the apparatus. Captain Arno Las-
cari, whose final season has been
a nightmare because of a chronic
elbow injury, managed a third in
his specialty, the parallel bars and;
an eighth on the high bar.
Ron Barak of Southern Cali-
fornia won both of these events
on his way to the all-around
championship. The slightly built
California native placed in three
other events to record 45.5 of his
team's points. He and teammateI

A fired-up Michigan hockey
team played its best game of the
season against Denver over the,
vacation to bring home a 6-3 vic-
tory and the NCAA champion-
"We hit a peak for that game,"
said Coach Al Renfrew. "We got'
good goal-tending from Bob
Gray and the defense checked
hard. It was really a thrill to
beat them there after they had
beaten us here.r
In the 17 years that the tour-
nament has been held, the Wol-
verines have taken the title seven
times, the last time Michigan won
was in 1956. The final victory tied
the season record for the most
wins with 24 for a final 24-4-1"
standing. The victory also made'
the icers the highest scoring, win-
ningest team to ever take the na-
tional title.


The Michigan sextet stormed
out to a 3-0 lead with goals by
Wilfred Martin, Mel Wakabaya-
shi, and Jack Cole before Denver
was able to muster a score early
in the second period. Denver
picked up another goal before
Jack Cole belted in the winng goal
with Tom Polonic getting the
Denver got a third point before
Wakabayashi got his second goal
to ice the game, with Alex Hood
scoring the last. Each line scored
two goals.
Goalie Gray, named unanim-
iously "Most Valuable Player" of
the playoff series, turned away 15
shots in the first period, as much
of the. play took place in the
Michigan zone due to several Wol-
verine penalties.
The turning point of the con-
test according to Renfrew was
"early in the first period. They
had a two man advantage and
couldn't score. Our players were
so keyed up that the two-man
difference didn't seem to matter."
The defense's effectiveness was
shown. particularly well 'in that
Denver had only a few chances to
regain control of the puck after
their first shot at the goal. De-
fenseman Poonic was named to
the first team of the all-tourna-
ment selections, in addition to
his being chosen ' All-America.
Captain Gordie Wilkie tied for
the tournament scoring lead and
was also all-tournament and first
team All-America.
Providence succumbed to the
stronger Wolverines late -in the
semi-final game to suffer a 3-2
defeat. Providence led for a short
time .in ,the tussle, but goals by
Ron Coristine and Gary Butler
put the Michigan icers ahead to
The score did not indicate the
Wolverines' domination of much
of the contest, as they took over
100 shots on goal, most of which
were off target. "Providence play-
ed. well," said Renfrew. "They're
a well-coached team. They took
advantage of breaks when they
got them which made the game
close, We just couldn't put the
puck in the net."
Denver had beaten the Mich-
igan squad the -week before in
Ann Arbor, 6-2, to take the
WCHA playoff crown. "I think
we were just mentally exhausted
after playing Tech the two nights
before that game," said Renfrew.
"It's a great thrill to have been
able to bring the NCAA cham-
'pionship back."

UP IN THE AIR are (left to right) Michigan gymnasts Gary
Erwin, John, Hamilton and Fred Sanders. Placing one-two-three
in the trampoline event, the trio led the Wolverines to a third
place finish in the NCAA Championships, behind champion
Southern Illinois and runner-up Southern California.

the meet, abandoned the role of
