The diving competition between
Michigan's Ron Jaco and Purdue's
John Vogel will highlight the Wol-
verines' opening dual meet of the
season today at 3 p.m. in the var-
Vogel is a senior who won the
National AAU diving champion-
ship last summer. In the dual meet
between Purdue and Michigan last
season, Vogel topped Jaco in the
diving event by jus.t a few points.
Vogel also placed above Jaco in
the 1961 Big Ten meet. He finish-
ed fifth while Jaco took sixth
So the diving event today will
be a continuation of this rivalry.
Diving C o a c h Dick Kimball
thought that the home pool might
give Jaco a slight advantage. But
concerning who will win, he said,
"It comes right down to who can
hit his dives under pressure."
Attar Entered Second
Paul Attar will be entered in
the meet as the second Wolverine
diver. Kimball described Attar as

Besides Vogel, Purdue did not

Attempting to improve on last

Dick Papenguth is counting on

ed about the best ever at Purdue.
Backstroker Ailbe Burke; sprint-

Tom Beese and Chuck Nelson; and
breaststroke artist Doug Baker are
the most talented sophomores.

Where do you begin to write a
story about Michigan's hockey
captain, Red Berenson. You could
point out his record, both on the
ice and off, but statistics are bor-
ing. You could describe one of his
exciting rink-long dashes that
bring Wolverine fans to their feet
and send chills up the backs of
opposing netminders, but practi-
cally everyone has cheered one of
those and it would be old stuff. Or
maybe you could just call him the
greatest college hockey player
there ever was, but people have
already said that.
No, n'iaybe it's just better to call

description. He's that kind of guy

To Bolt Meet
CHICAGO (IP)-The leader of
the nation's collegiatedtrack
coaches threatened yesterday to
hold a meet in conflict with the
National AAU competition to
select athletes for the U.S.-Russia
dual meet this summer unless the
AAU "accepts representation on
the new track and field federa-
"If we are forced to a federation
in opposition, without AAU, rep-
resentation, there would have to
be two meets with the top two
athletes in each event selected
from them," said Chick Werner,
president of the National Col-
legiate Track Coaches Association.
The full membership of the
NCAA convention, meeting in Chi-
cago, will endorse federations in
track, basketball and gymnastics
today in the continuing struggle
with the AAU.
"They would have to be held on
the same day because we would
have to show the AAU that they
can no longer control track and
field in the U.S.," Werner added.
"We notified the AAU of what
we wanted, what . our coaches

chose not to anything, except

By DAVE GOOD
All season long Coach Dave
Strack has been wishing his cag-
ers would hit 40 per cent of their
shots from the floor.
After all, Strack thinks, that's
really not so much to ask-40 per
cent, just three per cent more
than they've shot going into to-
night's game at Columbus against
unbeaten Ohio State (to be broad-
cast at 8:30 over WUOM, 91.7
After all, he figures, even if the
Buckeyes are canning 50 per cent
of their field goal attempts, even
if they have enjoyed some success
the past few years .using fellows
like Jerry Lucas at center, John
Havlicek at forward and Mel No-
well at guard, maybe they'll have
an off night.
"We're outmanned," Strack ad-
mits, looking back over his team's
2-8 record, "but greater upsets
have happened. We're just going
to try to play our own game."
Ghosts in Lineup
Maybe Strack- is right; maybe
the Bucks will have an off night,
but if the three seniors who have
been starters for three years are
all that's holding them up, then
something is wrong.
Lucas is- averaging 22 points a
game, Havlicek 19 and Nowell 12,
but that only adds up to 53. That
leaves about 30 points a game un-
accounted for, because the Buck-
eyes have been outscoring their
victims by 20 points every game,
Nobody else on their roster looks
so tough, though. The other two
starters, guard Dick Reasbeck and
forward' Doug McDonald, both
juniors, are only contributing
eight and five points a game, re-
spectively, and the reserves slack
off even more.
This is where there's a slight
catch. Seven of Coach Fred Tay-
lor's top nine men are hitting
over the coveted 40 per cent of
their shots, and the other two are
just short of it.
And Lucas, who everybody
knows likes to pass off to his.
teammates and take only the good
shots himself, is NOT the hottest
shooter on the club.
That distinction goes to Gary
Bradds, a 6'8" sophomore center,
who happens to -be notching 72
per cent of his shots. Lucas is
far below this with a meager 62
per cent, and Havlicek is even
lower at 58 per cent.
The others are hardly worth
mentioning, but in case you're in-
terested, McDonald is going at a
47 per cent clip, forward Jim
Doughty is hitting 44, Reasbeck
and guard Gary Gearheart 41
each, Nowell 39 and forward Bob"
Just by way of comparison,
Michigan's top gun, John Ooster-
baan, is hitting 18 points a game
and 53 per cent of his shots, but
Tom Cole and John Harris are
both at 12 points and 33 per cent.
A strong Purdue wrestling team

flawless Big Ten record today in
