A AU Heads in PeaceI
Judging from Saturday's Mich-
igan AAU Relays, the feuding
NCAA and AAU still have the
gloves on but might decide to call
off the fight before relations be-
come strained any further.
This Sunday in Chicago Mich-
igan Coach Don Canham and
other members of the National
Collegiate Track Coaches Associa-
tion will meet-with representatives
of the AAU in a last ditch effort
to avert an all-out war for
mate control of the sport.
The AAU sanctioned Satur
meet despite the fact that
ham is one of the leading b

Field Federation,. whichbv

Buckeyes Are Weak
Coach Newt Loken does not ex-
pect much difficulty from the
Buckeyes. Last year the Wolver-
ines beat Ohio State 79-32 in a
lopsided meet. Loken was quick to
remark that "Ohio State has some
of the best tumblers and rebound
tumblers in the Big Ten."
The Buckeyes will use three top
tumblers tomorrow to vie with the
Michigan trio of Tom Osterland,
Lew Hyman, and Phil Bolton.
Steve Greenberg should pose the
greatest threat to the Wolverines.,
Besides working the tumbling
event, -he also competes in free
exercise and rebound tumbling.
Tumbling Will Be Close
Steve Smith and Dave Jarrett
are two others who work on tram-
poline in addition to their ti
b ing. Loken expects these boys
challenge our tumblers in w,
will probably be the most exci
contest of the afternoon."
The excitement will not be

Michigan's three great all-aro
men, Gil Larose, Jim Hynds,
Arno Lascari will contend w

It will also be interesting to
