Frosh Tankers Sink Varsity



Michigan's ability to capitalize
on wide open breaks proved deci-
sive as the Wolverines overwhelm-
ed Michigan Tech, 6-2, last night
at the Coliseum.
The winning score was tallied
by senior Gary Butler unassisted
with 11:36 gone in the second per-
iod as Butler took the puck in
from the blue line, deftly faked
Huskie goalie Gary Bauman, and
lifted the pill into the upper right
corner of the net. The tally came
with Michigan short one man as
Tom Polonic was sitting out a
holding penalty.
Butler scored again in the third
period on another solo break, with,

the Wolverines again short, this
time with Cole riding the penal-
ty stool.
Michigan drew first blood late
in the first period on captain Gor-
die Wilke's short shot into the
near corner on a pass from Jack
Cole from behind the net. With
shortly over two minutes left in
the period, the Wolverines played
to protect the margin, and left
the ice with a 1-0 lead.
The second period started
quickly with a long Tech shot
bouncing within inches of an open
Michigan net. Butler picked up
the puck soon after, but was foil-
ed on a speed-break attempt by,
an alert Tech defenseman. Michi-

gan's attempts to score with a
man advantage during a Tech
penalty proved futile, although
the Wolverines had five offense-
men on the ice.
The Huskies stormed back with
2:40 gone on a quick pass and
shot from a faceoff in Michigan
territory. A second tally two-and-
one-half minutes later gave Tech
a 2-1 lead. The efforts of Blue
defensemen Roger Galipeau and
Ted Henderson failed to keep
Huskie Roy Heino from getting a
break on Goalie Bob Gray and
sailing the puck on a 20-foot shot
into the right corner.
Michigan's tying score came'
with both teams down a man on a
double penalty call. Hustling
sophomore center Mel Wakabaya-
shi worked the puck around de-
fenseman Bob Pallante and shot
on the angle from the left. But-
ler's unassisted goal came min-
utes later, and the Wolverines un-
knowingly had the marbles.

Mat-men Risk
Clean Record
Michigan's matmen put their
unmarred Big Ten record on the
line today when they entertain
the Boilermakers of Purdue.
The meet will take place at 4
p.m. in Yost Field House. Admis-
sion is free to students showing
ID cards at the door.
Two men to watch in the Pur-
due lineup will be Ralph Trail, in
the 130-pound class, and George
Reid, a 167-pounder. Trail has
maintained a 7-2 record, best on
the Purdue team, and Reid is
looking for his seventh win with
three defeats.
Gary Wilcox, recovered from a
shoulder injury that kept him out
of the holiday tournaments, steps
into the 137-pound slot where
sophomore Cal Jenkins appears
to be out for most of the season
with a shoulder separation. Chris
Stowell, 177-pound junior, makes
his first Big Ten appearance after
suffering a rib injury during the
vacation period.
The line-ups:
123-Ralph Bahna (M) vs. Jon
130 - Bill Johannesen (M) vs.
Ralph Trail.

Special To The Daily
State's point-making machine
ever gets the supreme test, it will
be in Jenison Field House this
Up here where comely figures
in swirts lead cheers and the pep
band wears plaid vests, the home
basketball team has hit over 100
points on five occasions (all on
the home court). The home fans
will jam the arena today to see
how many the underdog Spartans
can score against the number-
two ranked teall in the nation.
It's Michigan against Michigan
State in the first of a home-and-
home series, with all the action
on TV beginning at 4:30.
When the Wolverines take the

period. With four minutes left in
the stanza, Tech's Rickey Yeo
picked up a long pass down center
from his defense and stormed
down on Michigan goalkeeper
Gray alone. The short shot was
deflected off Gray's leg.
Again, two minutes later, Hus-
kie captain George Hill bore down
on Gray, catching the defense
off guard. Gray came up with
the save for the second time,
coming out of the crease to de-
flect the puck as Hill went spraw-
ling across the goal mouth.
In the six meetings between All-
America Bauman and Gray, the
Wolverines have won five of the





contests, with Gray consistently
shining in the nets.
The Wolverine defense tighten-
ed up in the third period, allow-
ing Tech only four shots on goal.
Third period goalsrwere tallied by
Butler and high-scoring sopho-
more Wilfred Martin.
The victory raises Michigan's
overall record to 9-2, with a 2-1
league standing. Tech now owns a
1-2 conference record, with an
overall 4-6 mark. Should Michi-
gan win tonight, the Blue would
stand a half game ahead of pres-
ent conference leaders Denver and
North Dakota, both of whom are
against non-league foes this

A fine performance in the final
event of the day, the 400-yard
freestyle relay, gave the freshmen
a thrilling 53-52 victory over the
varsity in their annual swimming
meet at the Matt Mann Pool yes-
Coach Gus Stager, who was very
pleased with the showings of both
squads, started the varsity work-
ing out immediately after the con-
clusion of the meet in preparation
for today's dual meet with Pur-
due, here at 2:30 p.m.
As an added attraction to the
competition, an impressive exhibi-
tion was given by sophomore Bob
Hoag, fifth place finisher in last
year's outdoor AAU 100-meter

freestyle. Hoag, currently scholas-I
tically ineligible to compete with
the varsity, swam the 100-yard
freestyle in a rapid 47.7 seconds,
to break the pool record set last
year by Steve Jackman of Minne-
sota. His time would have eclipsed
by :00.1 second the existing var-
sity record.
The freshmen got off to a head
start in the 400-yard medley relay.
Backstroker Russ Kingery, breast-
stroker Paul Scheerer, butterflyer
Carl Robie, and freestyler Bill
Keswick outraced the varsity team
of Ed Bartsch, Steve Rabinovitch,
Jeff Longstreth, and Frank Berry.
Their winning time, 3:38.1, was
under the standing varsity record.
The varsity pulled in front,

floor, there'll be quite a few
folks around here who will re-
member Michigan's miracle-type
victory a year ago when guard
Doug Herner flipped in the win-
ning basket with seven seconds
left to win it, 72-71. In that game
the leading scorers for both teams
were hobbled by leg injuries-Bill
Buntin, his right leg taped with
Johnson & Johnson's half-year,
output, and State's Pete Gent
with his 20-point limp.
This year Herner isn't listed as
a starter and both of the big scor-
ing guns are healthy, but the
coaches' comments are the same.
"We've got to come up with
the supreme game in order to
have a chance to win," says MSU
mentor Forddy Anderson sagely.
"We haven't done it as yet.
There's been no game in which
we've put everything together -
balanced offense, sharp and alert
defense, top performance from
every individual. Saturday would
be a great time to do it."
While Anderson is plugging for
every team member at a peak,
he hasn't decided yet who's going
to do it. He's got eight names to
choose from, with Gent and his
22-point average and center Fred
Thomann sure bets.

Since last year, the Spartans'
have introduced guard Stan
have introduced g u a r d Stan
Washington, who is only 6'3" but
can jump along with anyone.
Others that will undoubtedly get
into the game with Anderson's
shuffled lineup are forwards Bill
Berry (6'3") and Bill Curtis (6'-
4"), center Bill Noack, who is slow
and out of shape but with a good
hook shot, and guards Marcus,'
brother of Lonnie, Sanders, and
Bill Schwarz.
State goes into the game with
an 8-6 mark and four men (Gent,
Thomann, Washington, and San-
ders) averaging in double figures.
Always Good Games
"Regardless of the relative
standings and records, Michigan
and Michigan State games almost
always are good ones," comments
Anderson, obviously counting on
the fact. "In 1957, a year we tied
for the conference title, Michigan
beat us twice. That's the kind of
series it's been."
Michigan, with second and
third-place national rankings, is
13-1 for the season and rides on
top of the Big Ten with a 4-0
mark. No line-up changes are in
line for the MSU game, with

guard Cazzie Russell leading the
all-games individual scoring with
319 points to date for a 22.8 aver-
age. Buntin has 21.9 points a
game to his credit, with forward
Oliver Darden in third place with
Buntin paces the rebound de-
partment with a total of 160 in 13
games; Russell has picked off 138
in 14 contests.

where it was to stay until the final
event with a one-two finish in the
200-yard freestyle. Bill Farley, who
imi last week took three firsts at
Indiana. touched out just ahead
of sophomore Rich Walls
Farley was sick earlier in the
day, but he didn't show any signs
of it as he went on later to cap-
ture the 500-yard freestyle. Robie,
who was acting captain for the
freshmen, finished second in this
distance event.
It was Robie again in his spe-
cialty, the 200-yard butterfly, fin-
ishing just ahead of varsity cap-
tain JeffuMoore.
in the diving competition, NCAA
runner-up Ed Boothman took a
first for the varsity, followed by
junior John Candler.
The only one-two finish for the
freshmen came in the 200-yard
individual medley. John Vry and
Tom Williams finished in.that or-
der ahead of the varsity's Lance
Repuert and Geoff D'Atri.
Bill Groft, last year's fastest
100-yard prep freestyler was beat-
en out in the last lap of that event
by Walls. Groft, however, had al-
ready won the 50-yard event with
a 22.1 seccrid clocking.
NCAA backstroke champion
Bartsch touched out Kingery in
the 200-yard version of that event.
The next-to-last event was the
200-yard breaststroke. E ven
though Scheerer had taken fist
for the freshmen, upperclassmen
Geza, Bodolay, and Rabinovitch
had taken second and third, which
would have clinched the victory
for the varsity. An illegal turn and
illegal finish disqualified Rabino-
vitch and the stage was set for
the triumph of the freshman free-
stylers, Tom Schwarten, Brundage,
Keswick, and Groft, in the relay.

Gymnasts Avoid'
Opening Jitters

Despite what Coach Newt Lok-
en dismissed as "first meet jit-
ters," Michigan's NCAA gymnast-
ics champs outlasted Ohio State,
641/-46%/2, yesterday.
A crowd estimated at 800 in
the Sports Building watched as
John Cashman, Rich Blanton,
Ned Duke, and Dave Brod, Mich-
igan's sophomore quartet, paced
the victory.
Even though the Wolverines
swept the first place positions,
those jitters took'their toll.
The trampoline event, expected
to be the afternoon's highlight,
turned into a nightmare for the
Wolverines.. Gary Erwin, NCAA
champion, and John Hamilton,
third in the Midwest Open, both
fell off the tramp doing triple
twists. Neither was injured al-
though Loken later scratched

Hamilton from the tumbling com-

Alex Frecska and Blanton also
experienced misfortune. Frecska,

ton reinjured an arm on the
In spite of the disappointment,
gym fans could be impressed with
the performances of senior Paul
Levy and the four sophomores.
Levy turned in one of the finest
showings of his career, winning
the side horse with an 87 out of a
possible 100. Frecska finished sec-
ond with a 74.
The sophs registered 27%
points, nearly half the winning
total. Blanton led off with a
strong fourth in floor exercise, la-
ter topping the field on the parel-
lel bars. Cashman sparkled as
bar winner with an 89; Duke
finished first on the rings and
tied for second on the parallel
bars; Brod picked up a third place
in tumbling.
Henderson Twice
Mike Henderson turned in two
!outstanding performances for
Michigan: he won the floor exer-
cise and tied teammate Phil Bol-
ton for second in tumbling. Fred
Sanders won the trampoline com-
petition. Blanton led the Wolver-
ines with nine points for the day.
Meanwhile, even though Ohio
State failed to nab a single first
place, it far outdistanced the Wol-
verines for the lower points. The
Bucks picked up four seconds, five
thirds, and six fourths.
Arno Lascari, Michigan's cap-
tain, watched from the sidelines,
nu,'sing a sore elbow. Loken does
not expect him to be back for
abo.it a month.
