Maurice Podoloff, NBA presi-
dent, fined three Boston players
(Sam Jones, Jim Luscutoff, and
Tom Heinsohn) and two Warriors
(Guy Rodgers and Ted Lucken-
bill) $50 apiece Sunday for what
he termed "unsportsmanlike con-
duct" in the game that day, which
Boston won, 119-104.
"I'm advising both teams that
if the next game or games are
marred by similar scuffling severe
fines and suspensions will be in
order," said Podoloff.
Rangers Try Again
In the NHL, the New York
Rangers will try to square their
Stanley Cup series with the Tor-
onto Maple Leafs at Madison
Square Garden tonight. The New
Yorkers, now down 2-1, will be,
without their first string left-
winger, Dean Prentice, who re-
injured his left knee in Sunday
night's Ranger victory.
And over in Chicago, the Black
Hawks prepared to heed coach
Rudy Pilous' battle- cry: "Keep
pounding them-never let up-
keep them off balance!"
This formula apparently worked
Sunday night, as the Hawks maul-
ed the Montreal Canadiens, 4-1,
to cut the Habs' series margin to
2-1. The Hawks' home-ice advan-
tage may be augumented by the
absence of Canadien players Ralph
Backstrom and Bernie Geoffrion.

Hyman Still Unconscious
Gymnast Fights for Life
After Trampoline Mishap
(Continued from Page 1)


-Daily-James Keson
HYMAN PERFORMS ON TRAMP-Lew Hyman, Wolverine tram-
polinist who remains in critical condition in Albuquerque, is shown
here performing one of his routines. Hyman was performing his
last trick when he suddenly veered off and landed head-first on
the floor.

By placing third in the NCAA
championshipameet at Albuquer-
que, N.M., last Saturday, the
Michigan gymnastics team out-
performed any previous Wolverine
Although the demoralizing in-
jury to Lew Hyman on trampoline
had its effect on those who com-
peted after trampoline, and Michi-
gan's small five man squad han-
dicapped the Wolverines, the re-
sultant team effort was creditable.
Michigan captain Tom Oster-
land and sophomore standout Ar-
no Lascari barely missed NCAA
crowns on trampoline and paral-
lel bars. Osterland lost to Michi-
gan State's Steve Johnson by 1/40
of a point and Lascari was defeat-
ed by Southern California's Rob-
ert Lynn by the same narrow mar-
Osterland Seventh
Osterland also, tied for seventh
in tumbling. Admittedly, he was
"shaken up" by Hyman's injury.
Hyman himself was third in tum-
bling going into the finals and,
had he competed, stood a real good
chance of overcoming Illinois' Hal
Holmes and the eventual win-
ner, SouthernhCalifornia's Rusty
Mitchell for the tumbling title.
Lascari carried through after his
fine fourth place all-around per-
formance Friday night by plac-
ing highly in four other events.
Besides parallel bars, Lascari was
tenth in free exercise, sixth on
sidehorse, and fifth on high bar.
Larose Does Well
Gil Larose, Michigan's scrappy
junior, placed in four events. La-
rose was sixth in all-around Fri-

408.10 Pounds
MOSCOW (P) - Yuri Vlasov,
Russia's 1960 Olympic champion
and current world heavyweight
weightlifting titleholder, broke the
world record for the press, Tass
reported yesterday.
Vlasov pressed 408.10 pounds
(185.5 kilograms) to rub out
American Paul Anderson's last
record. Anderson, the 1956 Olym-
pic heavyweight champion, had
held the record of 407 pounds
(185 kilograms). Vlasov perform-
ed yesterday in the Moscow stu-
dents' competition.

day, eighth on parallel bars, tenth
on still rings, and tied for sixth
in free exercise. In Osterland's
opinion, Larose's showing in par-
allel bars and still rings also suf-
fered from Hyman's accident.
Michigan's other competitor,
Jim Hynds, was tenth Friday night
in all-around and was narrowly
eliminated from the finals of his
best event, high bar.
Third Is Great
Loken felt that "a third place
finish was just wonderful." Com-
menting on Lascari's inability to
place in the finals of the still rings.
Loken said, "Arno did well, but
the competition was tough." He
was also pleased by the ability of
Larose to move up from his posi-
tion Friday in the finals Saturday.
Perhaps the greatest surprise of
the meet, besides Hyman's unfor-
tunate accident, was the dethron-
ing of Holmes from the tumbling
championship. Holmes was re-
garded as "unbeatable" by Mid-
western gymnasts and coaches.
His defeat 9.45-9.3 by Mitchell re-
sulted partly from Mitchell's spec-
tacular routine Saturday and from
an oddity, small mistakes in
Holmes' performances.

with Hyman, when contacted last
night said, "Lew is holding his
own and we should be able to
know more Wednesday."
Hyman's parents were imme-
diately contacted in Long Island,
Ndw York and are currently in Al-
buquerque with their son. Loken
will remain in Albuquerque at
least until tomorrow.
Hyman was injured on his last
trick. He executed the trick suc-
cessfully Friday evening In the
preliminaries. Captain Tom Oster-
land who was one of four spotters
stationed at the side of the Tram-
poline when the accident occurred
"Hyman, going up for his final
trick, lost his balance and soared
upward,; unusually high 'moving,
directly over the edge of the
frame. From where I Was, it looked
like Lew would hit the' frame, but
he seemed to come straight down
and then veer off because of his
Leaned Heavily,
Osterland was directly across
from the edge over which Hyman
fell. Loken, stationed in the
coaches' booth, explained the mis-
hap by saying:
"Lew leaned heavily into his
twist. The leaning pushed him out
beyond the Trampoline."
In falling, the twisting Hyman's
hand brushed against the appara-
tus, but did hot succeed in break-
ing his fall.
Twisting Fast
"Lew was twisting -and moving
so fast that it was hard to realize
what, was happening," Osterland
said. "Nobody present could pre-
dict that Lew would miss the ap-
paratus. We all thought he would
hit the edge. One moment he was
coming down and in the next he
was veering off. Before I knew
what was happening, he had hit
his back on the floor and in the
next instant his head slammed
against the wood," he added.
Every usual precaution lad been
taken to assure that an injury
would not ensue. It is standard
procedure for four men to spot
on Trampoline. Gil Larose, Jim
Hynds and anunidentified South-
ern California gymnast were spot-
ting Hyman in addition to Oster-
land when the accident occurred.
Hynds was nearest to Hyman

when Hyman appeared to be In
trouble. "Jim moved closer in to
catch Lew after he would hit the
frame," Osterland said.
Adequately Prepared
"Jim was adequately prepared
to push Lew back," Loken said.
"He did the only thing he could
have under the circumstances in
view of the swiftness of the acci-
Hyman might have felt him-
self going off the apparatus, but
he was spinning and flying in a
determined effort to successfully
complete his final trick of the
"Hyman's competitiveness might
have kept him from sensing his
difficulty going into the trick,"
Loken said.
Previous to Saturday, Loken In
his 15 years as gymnastics coach
at Michigan had not seen a major
injury on Trampoline. He further
added that."there has-never been
a major injury to any varsity
gymnast in any event."
'MV' To Send
Six to AAU
Swim Meet
Indiana, the strongest team in
the history of intercollegiate swim-
ming, will, try to domiate the
AAU meet this week as it un-
doubtedly would have the NCAA
meet over the weekend if it had
been allowed to compete.
The Big Ten champion Hoosiers,
still serving out an NCAA football
recruiting violation, won't be com-
peting as a team' this time, but
should still make a big splash at
tiny Bartlesville, Okla., site of the
meet Thursday through Saturday.
The tape of the meet will run
on Sunday afternoon television.
Three from M'
Meanwhile Michigan, which.
doesn't usually send many of its
swimmers to compete unattached
in AAU meets, will be represented
this time by three swimmers and
three divers- freshmen Lanny
Reppert, Ed Bartsch and Ed
Boothman, sophomore Jon Baker,
junior Pete Cox and grad student
Bob Webster.
Webster won a gold medal div-
ing. in the Rome Olympics two
years ago, while Cox placed fourth
in the NCAA three-meter diving
at Columbus over the weekend.
Boothman won the state high
school championship his senior
year diving for Royal Oak Kim-
Competes in Breaststroke
Baker, a husky breaststroker
who did his high school swimming
at Battle Creek, will compete in
the AAU 100- and 220-yd. races
in his specialty.
He was one of the few Wolver-
ines to earn points in the NCAA
meet, finishing fourth in the 200-
yd. breaststroke in 2:18.1. He swam
his best time at 100 yds., 1:03.5, to
finish second in his heat to team-
mate Dick Nelson.
The time left him tiedafor
seventh in the final placings,
though, just .2 slow of thesixth-
place qualifier.
Enters Three Races
Bartsch is going in three races,
the 100- and 220-yd. backstroke
and the 200-yd. individual medley.
One of the Wolverines' strongest
freshman prospects, Bartsch bet-
tered the existing varsity back-
stroke records in his first two
meets of the, season lastDecem-
He went :55.8 in the 100 (Fred
Wof's record is :56.6) and 2:02.1
in the 200 (Mike Reissing's rec-
osd is 2:03.5)

Reppert, a versatile swimmer
who can go butterfly, backstroke
or freestyle, will be racing in the
AAU 100-yd. fly and the medley.

To Play MSU
On TV Again
The Columbia Broadcasting Sys-
tem announced yesterday that it
will televise two Michigan football
games this fall. In all, CBS will
represent 37 different schools on
14 dates, in regional and national
The Michigan-Michigan State
game on October 13 will be tele-

In days of yore, men feared-not only their
mortal enemies, but the elements too. It was
the medieval armorer's task to protect his,
chief against foemen, but weather-protection
was a more difficult matter. Thus many a
knight was spent in rusty armor.
Engineers and scientists at Ford Motor
Company, engaged in both pure and applied
research, are coping even today with the
problem of body protection (car bodies, that
is). Through greater understanding of the
chemistry of surfaces, they have developed
new paint primers and undercoatings, new
rustproofing methods, and special sealers
that guard entire car bodies against nature's
corrosive forces--all of which add armor-like
protection to Ford-built cars.
From other scientific inquiries will undoubt.
p edly come new materials with protective
properties vastly superior to those of today.
This is another example of Ford's leadership
through scientific research and engineering.
