GYMNASTS WANT CROWN AGAIN:
'M' Faces, Illinois Challenge

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
second of two articles analyzing
Michigan's chances In the Big Ten
swimming championships whidh be-
gin this Thursday in Bloomington.
Today's article deals with the free-
style events and diving.)
By DAVE"GOOD
"It's just something we got
sucked into, but I guess that's the
way you learn things," mused
Michigan swimming coach Gus
Stager.
Stager was disgusted, but not
about his team's 58-47 loss to
Ohio State over the weekend.
Stager could look philosophically
on that. What really disturbed him
was something that happened last
year in Iowa City.
That's when the Big Ten swim-
ming coaches voted to strike at
the power of the monarchs of the
sport by limiting each team to 18
competitors in the conference
meet.
Help the Poor
This and the 12-place scoring
system were supposed to keep the
"have-nots" in the Big Ten from
going home empty-handed, with-
out materially damaging the rela-
tive position of the contenders.
What it has done, as far as
Stager is concerned, is to rob him
of the opportunity to send all his
best men to Bloomington tomor-
row. /
The biggest shocker is that
Stager has to leave home senior
Win Pendleton, who finished
fourth in last year's NCAA 1500-
meter freestyle and set a varsity
record of 17:46.0 in doing it.
The others are all- sophomores,
but all rank among the confer-
ence's top dozen or so men in
their events - butterflyer Bob
Shaefer, distance freestyler Tom.
Dudley and diver Paul Attar.
Hoosiers Have Troubles
It will be interesting to see whom
Indiana coach Jim Councilman
will have to leave 'behind. The
Hoosiers have so much talent that
they're practically a shoo-in for
the conference championship and
for individual titles in all eight
specialty events.
The Hoosiers are far below their
par in the six freestyle and two
diving events, though.}They won't
be favored in anything but the
freestyle 220, 440 and 1500.
Ohio State is the villain in the
one and three-meter dives, with
both Lou Vitucci and Juan Botella.
Vitucci came within two points of
sweeping both events in the Big
Ten and NCAA championships last

year, losing the NCAA one-meter
to Florida State's Curtis Genders,
459.40 to 457.50. Botella was the
NCAA runner-up at three meters,
and Purdue's John Vogel won the
AAU title in the summer.
Michigan's Ron Jaco, who
nearly beat Vogel and Botella in
dual meets this season, stands out
as a good darkhorse. Michigan's
Pete Cox, Michigan State's Van
Lowe, Ohio State's Bill Glueck and
Indiana's John Lovestedt, Keith
Craddock ,and Tom Dinsley should
also finish high.
Jackman Defends Titles
Steve Jackman, Minnesota's de-
fending Big Ten champ in both
the 50 and 100, rates as a shaky
favorite in both sprints.
Jim Kerr, who touched out the
collegiate record - holder earlier
this year, is the only one to
match Jackman's time of :21.9 in
the 50, but John Plain (:22.1),
Michigan State's Jeff Mattson
(:22.2), Jack Foster (:22.4) and
Dennis Floden (:22.6) are all
close.
Michigan State's Mike Wood and
Mattson, who have both hit :48.8
in the 100, are the biggest threats
there to Jackman, who has done
:48.4. Others are Wisconsin's Bill
Birmingham (:48.9), Plain (:49.0),
Michigan's Bill Darnton (:49.4)
and Kerr (:49.5).
The distance events belong to

Indiana's Alan Somers and Pete
Sintz. Somers (2.01.6) and Sintz
(2:01.7) are just ahead of Wood
(2:01.9), Darnton (2:03.1), Plain
(2:03.3) and Michigan State's
Doug Rowe (2:03.8) in a strong
220 field.
Two-Team Event
In the 440, Somers (4:22.6) and
Sintz (4:24.1) get support from
teammate Claude Thompson (4:-
35.1). But Michigan can counter
with Darnton (4:33.0), Roy Burry
(4:33.1), John Dumot (4:33.2),
Warren Uhler (4:36.4) and Carlos
Canepa, who also swims the but-
terfly. Michigan State's Dick
Brackett (4:32.7) and/Minnesota's
Orrin Nordstrom (4:32.8) are the
only other top entries.
The 1500 is not swum during the
regular season, but it is probably
Somers' best event.
Wood, Mattson, Rowe and Bill
Wood, who set an American record
of 3:15.8 in the 400-yd. freestyle
relay for Michigan State earlier
this year, are ahead of Michigan,
with Floden, Kerr, Darnton and
Frank Berry. Minnesota, Wiscon-
sin and Indiana are also close.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
first of two articles analyzing
Michigan's chances in the Big Ten
gymnastics championships which
begin this Friday in Columbus. To-
day's article deals with the top
performers from other schools.)
By JOHN SCOCHIN
Its string of consecutive cham-
pionships broken last year and
eager for revenge, the, Illinois
gymnastics team leads the list of
contenders for the title present-
ly held by Michigan.
Illinois is deep in talent, led by
its defending all-round champion
Hal Hadley, Hal Holmes, the na-
tion's best tumbler, and defending

side horse champion Bill Lawler.
In the pre-meet analysis the
coaches predict the meet either
145-144 or 148-146 for either Mich-
igan or the Illini.
NCAA Champion

Spartans, Badgers, Illini
Battle 'M' for Track Title

gan's Rod Denhart and Illinois'
Dave Rudolph. Both have cleared
14'0" or better. Behind them are
Michigan S'tate's Bill Alcorn, and
M's Steve Overton at around 13'8"
and three vaulters from Minneso-
ta who could cause trouble! in the
race for second and third places.
Three-Way Race
The 60-yd. dash boils down to a
three-way race between Wiscon-
sin's Bill Smith, Purdue's Nate
Adams, and MSU's Sherman Lew-
is. All three run around :06.2.
The 300-yd. dash and the 600-
yd. run should ride pretty much
with Michigan State, Indiana, and
Illinois. The Spartans feature last
year's second place winner, Don
Voorheis, in the 300. Their depth
will be provided by quarter miler
John Parker. The Hoosiers will
ride with sprinted Ted Jackson,
who has excellent times thus far.
In the 600, there should be a
fine race between last year's sec-
ond and third place winners, Illi-
nois' captain Jim Hammond, and
the Hoosiers' Larry Clinton.
McRae Challenged
The two hurdle events should
be an interesting three way race
as well between last year's cham-
pion Bennie McRae, Wisconsin's
Larry Howard, who trimmed Mc-
Rae twice last weekend, and MSU's
Herman Johnson, with whom Mc-
Rae has split two victories. Rec-
ords may fall here.7
The 880-yd. run and the mile
look to ride with Wolverine cap-
tain Ergas Leps again this year.
Michigan State's Gerry Young ap-
pears to be the only threat to
Leps.-
The quarter mile features names
like Purdue's Dave Mills, Michi-
gan State's Parker, and Minneso-
ta's Jim Fischer. Mills holds the
conference indoor record with a
sprint of :47.2 set last year, but
Parker covered the distance in
:46.7 as a freshman, though he
has not come too near that time
this season. Fischer finished third
last year.
The relay race should be very
close as well. Wisconsin, Indiana,
Purdue, Michigan State, Illinois,
and Indiana all have strong con-
tenders.

The free exercise should be
dominated by Hadley. The Illi-
nois senior boasts the NCAA title
in this event. Hadley has averag-
ed 93 for the dual meet season.
Hadley's teammate Larry Grace
boasts a 90 average and Mike
Aufrecht, another of the capable
gymnasts from Champaign, notch-
ed an 89 mark for the year. Michi-
gan State's Gani Browsh with an
89 average is another serious con-
tender.
Michigan has only an outside
chance for a victory on the still
rings. The title is apparently des-
tined to be the personal property
of Michigan State's Dale Cooper,
whom Wolverine Coach Newt Lok-
en calls "the best ring man in the
country." Holder of a 96 average
for his routines during the dual
meet season, including one 99
point performance, the Spartan
sophomore is rated a heavy favor-
ite.
AAU Champion
Cooper, holder of the AAU
crown, performs inverted crosses
and other complex movements,
scarcely moving the straps of the
apparatus. Other non-Michigan
contenders will be Hadley and Jim
Durkee of MSU with 90 and 89.7
averages respectively.
The best tumbler in the world
according to Loken is Holmes, Big
Ten and NCAA defending cham-
pion. His 96 average for the year
is far above his nearest rival. In
the dual meet against Michigan,
his performance in the last event
gave Illinois the victory in a close
contest and handed the Wolver-
ines their only loss of the season.
Performing double backs, twist-
ers, and front series, in various
combinations with relative ease
make Holmes a standout tumbler.
Steve Johnson of Michigan State
is the next non-Wolverine with
an 89 average.
Seeks Revenge
The successful completion of the
Takemoto, a difficult trick named
after a noted Japanese gymnast,
is one of the ingredients Iowa's
Dick Porterfield uses in building
a championship high bar routine.
The Iowa star's current 92.5 aver-
age is one of the best in the coun-
try. Beaten only by Michigan's Ar-
no Lascari, the Hawkeye ace will
be looking for revenge this Sat-
urday.
Durkee of Michigan State and
Dale Burkel of Minnesota both
have 90 plus averages on the high
bar and should be in the thick of
the race for Conference honors.
The versatile Hadley and Michi-
gan State's Larry Bassett rank

one-two behind Michigan's Arno
Lascari on the parallel bars. Had-
ley averages -92 while Bassett is
slightly over the 90 mark.
A flock of challengers will be
after Michigan captain Tom Os-
terland's trampoline title headed
by former Big Ten, NCAA and
AAU champion Larry Snyder of
Iowa. Snyder toured the Far East
last year for the State Depart-
ment and didn't compete last year.
This season he is second to Oster-
land with a 90 average.
Steve Johnson, former NCAA
runner-up from Michigan State,
Meetings
There will be two organiza-
tion meetings for Intramural
clubs this week. On Wednesday
at 7:30 p.m. a meeting will be
held for the weightlifting club,
and on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
the Judo club. Both will be held
in the I-M office.
Stu Greenburg of Ohio State and
Hal Glomb and Hal Flood of Illi-;
nois also deserve serious consid-
eration.
The most coveted title will be
the all-round. With Montpetit
gone, Hadley is a unanimous fav-
orite. In addition to the Michigan
trio of Gil Larose, Jim Hynds and
Lascari, Dick Stone, a fine free
exercise and parallel bar perform-
er, is a prime contender in addi-
tion to Dick Klauseman, Hadley's
running mate.
The race for points in all these
events will be a close one. With
points awarded to the competitors
according to their finishes, the
conference meet is still very much
of a tossup. A single upset or above
average performance could pro-
vide the eventual winner and Big
Ten champion.
