Icers Meet State for Cellar

Soph Bartsch Looks to Olympics7

Special To The Daily
s meet the Spartans in a two-
ne hockey series here tonight
I tomorrow night with two im-
tant factors in the outcome-

the Western Collegiate Hockey
;ociation and vengeance for
o earlier losses to Michigan
'riday night's game, which be-
s at 8 p.m., will be carried by
k double win by Michigan over
chigan Tech and a double loss
State to Minnesota last week-
I have set the stage for the
ilverine -drive to get out of the
lar-a position which they have
d since the first game of the
son. The Spartans are 3-9 and
Wolverines are 3-11-2 for
ntical .250 percents.

In that game, Michigan bowed
to the Spartans 2-1 in overtime.
It is the general opinion of the
team that those two games were
the ones that broke their back.
Until last weekend the Wolver-
ines had only won one game, that
from Denver in the third game of
the season. Goalie Bob Gray's re-
turn to the line-up last Friday
night, though, seemed to rekindle
a spark among the dying embers
as Michigan rolled to a 4-1 vic-
tory. The Wolverines were'not to
be denied and they came roaring
from behind the next night with
a last-minute goal by Gary Butler
to finish on the long end of a 5-4
Kartusch Stand-out
A stand-out player in the series
was Wayne Kartusch. Kartusch
has eight points on three goals
and five assists. He also has 29

penalties for a total of 72 minutes
in the penalty box.
Kartusch has played in 16
WCHA games. This gives him an
average of 4.5 penalty minutes per
game. By contrast, Howie Young
of the Detroit Red Wings, the
"baddest" bad man in history with
210 minutes in the penalty box
and 13 games left to play, has an
average of only 4.038 minutes in
penalties per game. Young easily
broke the record of the former bad
man, Lou Fontinato, last weekend.
Fontinato had 202 penalty min-
utes in 70 games.
The Spartans have also been on
a downhill road since the Wolver-
ine series. They have only won
one other-that at the expense of
North Dakota, while losing nine.
Last year's All-American goalie
John Chandik has given up an
average of 6.0 goals per game in
the Spartan nets. The Spartan
substitute goalie, Harry Woolf, has
given up 6.5 goals a game.
Leading scorer for State is Dick
Johnstone, a senior from Copper
Cliff, Ont. He has 12 goals and
five assists for 17 points, ranking
him just a point behind Gord
Wilkie of the Wolverines.
Michigan will be laying their
streak of having never lost a sea-
son's series to MSU on the line
in these games. To acomplish
this, the Wolverines must sweep
pride, they feel they must win by
both games. To salvage some
big margins.
Besides, that will put Michigan
State firmly in the cellar:

"One of the best backstrokers
Michigan has ever had" is the way
Coach Gus Stager describes soph-
omore swimming star Ed Bartsch.
Since his debut this season on
Michigan's varsity swim team,
Bartsch has set a new pool record
in the 200 yard backstroke and
has set the all-time record for this
event, beating the old mark by
almost four seconds with a time

of 2:00.7. This time could con-
ceivably be shortened further in
this weekend's encounter with
traditional rival Ohio State.
Ohio's -ace backstroker L. B.
Schaefer placed first in last year's
NCAA meet with a time of 1:58.8.
Bartsch statistically would have
placed third in this meet. His real
test will be against Schaefer this
Saturday. In looking forward to
this contest Bartsch says "Schae-

Undefeated Gophers
Test M' Gymnasts

fer hasn't been pushed. He's a
little bit stronger, a faster sprin-
ter. I expect a real good race."
Coach Stager feels that "Ed is
a better backstroker than Schae-
fer. He's had faster times this
year than Schaefer has."
Beats Stickles
Although Bartsch did not per-
form remarkedly well against In-
diana last weekend, he did man-
age to beat Ted Stickles, third
place winner in last year's Big
Ten meet. Stickles is a world
record holder in the individual
medley. The lone man who beat
Bartsch at Indiana was Tom
Stock, winner in last year's Big
Ten meet with the official Ameri-
can record time of 1:56.2 and
world record holder in three back-
stroke distances.
Against Princeton this year
Bartsch set a varsity record of
2:0-.2, only to be beaten by
Princeton's Jed Graef; second
place finisher in the NCAA meet
last year. Graef set a pool record
of 1:59.9 in that race.
Bartsch, a native of Philadel-
phia, swam in high school, but
conditioned himself especially for
the national AAU meets. In these
meets he placed consistently third
or fourth, his worst performance
having been a fifth. When asked
about which he considered his
best performance ever, he recalled
his third place finish in the 100
meter event in the AAU nationals
the summer of 1961. In that race

a world record of 1:01.3 was set,
but Bartsch came in with a time
of 1:01.9, two seconds faster than
he had ever swam.
Although he has competed in
the 100 and 200 yard events, he
much prefers the latter. "My con-
ditioning is based around the 200
yard event," says Bartsch. I don't
have that much speed, but I rely
on better conditioning." The rec-
ords would seem to show that he
was equally good in both races.
Looking Up
His outlook is extremely opti-
mistic. "I'm shooting for a 1:57-
1:58 race this year. I'm looking
forward especially to the nation-
als, and then too there are the
Olympics next year."
"Many of the team members are
looking forward to the nationals.
There'll probably be a five team
field. We shouldn't take worse
than third, and we could be first."
The five schools to which he re-
fers are Yale, Minnesota, Ohio
State, Southern California, and
Michigan. Roger Goettsche of Yale
is a top backstroker; as is Bob
Bennett of S. Cal. and Pete Ham-
mer of Indiana. Michigan's own
entry, Ed Bartsch will be the man
to watch however, "With his great
potential," said Gus Stager, "he
should become one of the coun-
try's top backstrokers."

Coach Newt Loken sends his un-
defeated gymnastics squad into its
second meet in three days tonight
against the powerful and unde-

Grappiers Face MSU
To Renew Mat Feud

, ,.._,

Don't Forget

Michigan's wrestlers will have
one eye on the record books when
they clash with Michigan State
here Saturday afternoon in the
annual renewal of one of the hot-
test current Big Ten mat rivalries.,
It's in the books that three
years ago aththis time the Wolver-
ine grapplers were riding high on
the crest of a nine-meet winning
streak when the Spartans blottedi
it all out with a 14-11 setback up
at East Lansing. And again inl
1961: C'oach Cliff Keen's crew had:
piled up a good-enough 9-0 sea-i
son before State loused it up-this
time with a stalling technique that3
frustrated the Wolverines, 20-16.
Later that 'same spring the S-?
boys, deciding that four-point vic-
tories over Michigan were defin-
itely for the good, won their first
Big Ten wrestling title - edging
out the Wolverines, 69-65. Anda
talk about Michigan frustration:
three MSU wrestlers won on one-
point victories, Wolverine Nick
Armelagos missed getting three
points for a near fall after nearly
pinning State's George Hobbs
(Hobbs won the match), and
Spartan Mike Sensig won by a'
point-and he was flat on his back
at the sound of the final buzzer.
Come February, 1962, Michigan,
out for a bit of revenge, travelled
up to East Lansing and unravelled
a Michigan State undefeated
string, 14-11, with Wolverine 177-
pounder Jack Barden scoring the
decisive match win, 3-2.
And this winter the stage is all
set again. Both Michigan and
Michigan State have undefeated
dual meet records in Big Ten com-
petition, and both have eyes on

that Big Ten title that defending
champ Iowa will have on the block
next month.
State has already downed the
Hawkeyes, who are favored to be
at the top of the heap again this
year, in a dual meet earlier this
season, 14-11. (Michigan takes on
the title-holders March 2.)
The Spartans will bring a "well-
balanced team, missing any great
individual stars" according to M'
assistant coach Doug Blubaugh. A.
pair of sophomores, Gary Smith
and Cecil Holmes, will be holding
down the lightweight positions at
123 and 130-lbs., respectively, and
David James will be at the 137-1b.
class. James fell to Michigan's Jim
Keen on a riding-time victory,
7-6, in a key match in the Wolver-
ine win last year.
State Champ
State will go with former Mich-
igan state champ Monty Byington
in the ,147-lb. division with Happy
Fry at 157-lbs. Bob Archer (167-
lbs.), Alex Valcanoff (177-lbs.),
two-time Michigan state titlist,
a n d Homer McClure (heavy-
weight) round out the MSU at-
tack. McClure nosed out Ken
Johnson of Iowa, 2-1, to cinch the
Iowa meet for the Spartans after
the score was tied 11-11 going
into the final match.
On the Michigan side of the
ledger: Ralph Bahna at 123-lbs.,
Dave Dozeman at 130, and Gary
Wilcox in the 137-lb. class carry
Wolverine hopes in the light-
weights. Keen will be at 147-lbs.
while soph Rick Bay drops down
into the 157-lb. department.
In the upper weights: Chris
Stowell holds the 167-1b. spot,
Joe Arcure will face Valcanoff at
177, and Barden will be heavy-
weight anchorman.

only two weeks away and the
NCAA Meet is five weeks away,
Loken's gymnasts wont to make
the most out of their last chance
at meet competition before these
all-important meets. Loken is op-
timistic about his team and its
chances of winning its third
straight Big Ten championship and
its first NCAA Championship,
Gophers Tough
But this doesn't mean that Lok-
en doesn't have any worries. One
of them is the meet tonight with
Minnesota. Hhe Gophers have one
of the more powerful conference
teams and are 4-0 in league dual
Minnesota has three stars who
compete in practically all the
events. Also the team has more
balance than last season when the
Gophers' small squad finished
Looking back on the hurdles that
the Wolverines have already sur-
mounted on the way to an unde-
feated season, Loken said, "Min-
nesota will test us further."
The three top Gopher gymnasts
are sophomore Bill Eibrink and
juniors Tom Arneson and Larry
Gleason. After dropping out of
school last year, Gleason has re-
turned to the form he had when
placing third in the high bar at the
1961 Big Ten Meet. For example,
Gleason won the parallel bars and
placed in several events in the
Gopher victory over Indiana on
February 9.
Arneson took two fifths against
Indiana in the still rings and in
the side horse. Eibrink won first
Gym Show
Four girl gymnastics stars
will give an exhibition during
a break in the Michigan-
Minnesota meet tonight.
Coach Herb Vogel is the
coach of these girls who have
won many regional and na-
tional honors. The girls are:
Janice Dunham, who recently
placed sixth in the Pan-
merican trials; Donna Schaen-
American trials; Donna
Schaencer, a former national
champion; Liza Krall, a com-
petitor in the last World
Games; and Judy Dunham, a
midwestern champion.
place in the high bar. Both gym-
nasts placed in other events.
Against Michigan State, Michi-
gan's depth was too much for the
Spartans. An example of this is
the trampoline event where the
Wolverines' John Hamilton took
first place. At the meet last Sat-
urday against Illinois, Hamilton
only finished fifth behind team-
mates Gary Erwin and Fred San-
ders and two Illini.
Loken cited several other close
rivalries on the team where his
gymnasts are pushing each other
to greater and greater perform-
ances. Captain Gil Larose and Ar-
no Lascari are close competitors in
several events. Mike Henderson
and Phil Bolton have beaten each
other in tumbling, and the list of
such cases goes on and on.
