EVANSTON - Both Michigan
and Iowa placed three wrestlers
into today's final matches of the
Big Ten Meet here last night as
the Wolverines jumped into a
slim 32-31 lead over the title de-
fending Hawkeyes.
Minnesota showing surprising
power, and host team Northwest-

battle has four.
Final and consolation matches
begin this afternoon.
Two Sophs
Two Michigan sophomores, Lee
Deitrick and Rick Bay, plus vet-
eran heavyweight Jack Darden
carry Wolverine title hopes into
today's action.
It was Deitrick who tangled
with Purdue's Dave Gibson-de-
fending champ, winner of 17
straight dual meets, and first
seeded 147-pounder-in the semi-
finals an dpulled the greatest vic-
tory of his career to date: the
Wolverine newcomer ' decisioned
Gibson, 8-4.
With Gibson leading 4-3 going
into the final period, Deitrick
pulled a reversal in the last 35
secornds and almost pinned the
Boilermaker star. The predica-
ment points gave Deitrick the
margin of victory.

The only Michigan wrestler to

sion, Bay advanced up on a pair
of 7-3 wins-the first over North-.
western's Bill Breece and the
other against Steve Martin of
Wissonsin. Indiana's Bill Galvin
is on tap for this afternoon.
Stiff Competition
Barden, Michigan mainstay this
season with an undefeated mark,.
had to wade through 'some pretty
stiff competition to qualify for
the heavyweight finale. T h e
brawney Wolverine slipped by In-
diana's Dick Conaway, 5-4 in the
first round, and squeeked out a
6-5 thriller over Dave Russell of
Illinois in the semi-finals. .
Barden had to pick up a re-
versal on Russell in the last two
minutes to break a 4-4 deadlock
and then hold off the Ilini heavy-
weight after Russell's escape in
the closing seconds.
Today Barden will face top
ranked Roger Pillath, who out
muscled Northwestern's Al Jaklich
in the semi-finals 3-0. Iowa's big
three Steve Parker at 130-lbs.,
Tom Huff at 137-lbs., and Steve
Combs at 167-lbs., all gained final
berths. The first seeded Parker
tripped Michigan's Dave Dozeman
on a late reversal, 10-8, and Huff
downed Dick Nalley. Combs step-
ped into the finals by pinning
MSU's Bob Archer.
Other Side
On the other side of the Mich-
igan *ledger, 123-pounder Carl
Rhodes pinned Indiana's Larry
Mann in the opening match but

the finish. Murray said, "I was
standing right on the line and he
had Lewis beat, but I didn't want
to say anything because - you
know how it is-I couldn't tell
about the other fellow (Jackson
was running in the first lane
farthest from Burnley)." ,
The Daily photograph verified
the feeling among the track team
that Burnley had, indeed, been a
quarter stride ahead of Lewis. In
addition it showed that both Lew-
is and Burnley were a full stride
ahead of Jackson.
The photograph was convincing
enough for Canham to act where
previously he had just growled.
After looking at the photograph
Canham said, "He clearly had
Jackson beat, the only question is
about Lewis."
Yesterday the film of the race
was reviewed by the Wisconsin
athletic department, sponsors of
the meet this year, and it verified
the still.
The protest has not been offi-
cially allowed as yet by the Big
Ten office in Chicago, but verifica-
tion of the Wisconsin review is be-
lieved to be just a formality after
the decision of the review.

EAST LANSING-Although they
slipped a little in spots, Michi-
gan's gymnasts took a command-
ing lead in the Big Ten champion-
ships here yesterday.
,Sparse afternoon and evening
crowds in Jenison Fieldhouse
watched the Wolverines qualify 23
out of a possible 24 men for the
finals today. In the only completed
event, Michigan also paced one-
two-three in the all-around to
take the lead in team points with
Far behind was Minnesota with
12, followed by Wisconsin with
eight, Iowa with seven, and Ohio
State with one, Michigan State
failed to score in the all-around
while Illinois and Indiana did not
enter this event.
Iowa was second in number of
qualifiers with 16, with MSU and
Minnesota having 12 and 10. re-
Depth and Luck
The two key factors in yester-
day's action were Michigan's
overwhelming depth and Michi-
gan State's incredible string of
bad luck. The depth angle was
evident by the fact that Wolverine
Gil Larose, Arno Lascari, and Jim
Hynds completely out-distanced
the field in the all-around in
sweeping the event for the first
time in Big Ten history.
Coach Newt Loken's gymnasts
also placed first in five of the
eight preliminaries, and tied for
another leading position. Lascari
was the big wheel in three of
these, rolling up top scores in the
parallel bars, sidehorse, and high
bar. Larose was the leader in the
sidehorse, while Fred Sanders edg-
ed teammates Gary Erwin and
Johnny Hamilton on the Trampo-
line. Mike Henderson tied Indi-
ana's Jim Woodward for the hon-
ors in floor exercise.
In the other two prelims, tum-
bling and still rings, Michigan
yielded to the acknowledged
champs, Hal Holmes of Illinois,
and Dale Cooper of MSU.
More Gravy
Besides the sweep in the all-
around, the Wolverines threaten-
ed to take all the gravy in the
sidehorse, Tramp, and p-bars,
where they occupied the first three
positions going into today's action.
Since yesterday's scores are aver-
aged with today's, Michigan stands
an excellent chance of piling up 28
points in each of these events.
The Wolverines' shaky moments
came in the last two events, tum-
bling and the rings. In the for-
mer, Phil Bolton finished second
to Holmes as expected, but Hen-
derson slipped on his opening rou-
tine, couldn't come back to his

usual form, and settled for sev-
In the rings, Larose made a
great effort with a 93.5, but could
not catch Cooper (96) and Wis-
consin's Jim Hopper (95). In what
was the highest-scoring event of
the night, Iowa's Glenn Gailis fin-
ished fourth with a 93.
Exit Stage Left
For Michigan State it was all
,bad news. Captain Jerry George,
their chief hope in the all-around,
scored a disappointing 61 in his
specialty, the sidehorse, and then
unexplainably left the fieldhouse
and was scratched from all re-
maining events.
The Spartans suffered even more
misery oli the high bar, having
no less than three entrants fall
off without completing their rou-
tines. In the meet's only serious
accident so far, State sophomore
Manuel Turchan fell from the bar
and landed on his shoulder, dislo-
cating it. Doctors estimated that
he will be out of action from six
months to a year, and may never
compete again.
Turcham had already qualified
on the sidehorse, and was anoth-
er one of his team's all-around
hopefuls. As it was, Bob Carman
salvaged something for the Spar-
tans on the high bar, finishing
second to Lascari, 92.5-92 in the

LAFAYETTE-Michigan shook
off all challengers except Minne-
sota in the battle for second place
in the BigTen Swimming Cham-
pionshipshere last night.
Indiana, winner of four of five
races last night, pulled way ahead
of the crowd with only today's
seven events to go.
Going for their third straight
Big Ten title to make up for the
NCAA championships they are 'n-
eligible for, the Hoosiers lead with
150 points to Michigan's 82% and
Minnesota's 79.
OSU Fourth
The other team scores fue Ohio
State 64%, Michigan State 48,
Purdue 15%, Wisconsin 11, North-
western 71, Iowa 6, and Illi-
nois 3/.
Michigan Coach Gus Stager ob-
served that defending NCAA
champion Ohio State and Mich-
igan State probably had "elimin-
ated themselves," but said he was
still worried over Minnesota,
which had already defeated his
team in a dual meet.
The Wolverines, although still
without an individual winner af-
ter 10 events, placed men in the
finals of all five events last night.

Senior Mike Reissing had the
best day of his life, placing fifth

Schaefer in 2:03.8 in his elimina-
tion heat in the afternoon.
Berry Spectacular
Berry, a junior who anchored
both of Michigan's rely teams last
year but scored no points indi-
vidually, turned in what Stager
called the Wolverines' most spec-
tacular performance. In placing
third in the 200-yd. frestyle,
Berry beat Michigan State's Mike
Wood, the defending champion at
220 yards and owner of the pend-
ing NCAA record of 1:46.4.
Berry's time of 1.48.8 broke his
own varsity record of 1:49.5, set
in the afternoon and was 2Y2 sec-
onds faster than he had ever
swam before yesterday.
The winner, however, was In-
diana sophomore Gary Verhoeven,
who had also upset teammate
Alan Somers for the 500 title on
Thursday. His time of 1:48.2 was
a Big Ten record.
Fastest Race
Moore placed fourth in the
fastest 200-yd. butterfly race ever
swam. The surprise winner was
Minnesota sophomore Walt Rich-
ardson in 1:53.7, breaking every
mar kon the books. He defeated
Indiana's Fred Schmidt and Lary
Schulhof by two yards, just as
he had earlier in the season dur-
ing a dual meet.
Moore's time, 2:00.1, just barely
earned him the edge over the
fifth and sixth place finishers.

In the afternoon he had estab-
lished a personal best of 2:00.0
in winning his preliminary heat.
Michigan's biggest disappoint-
ment came in the 200-yd. breast-
stroke, won by Indiana's Chet
Jastremski in a record 2:13.2.
Dick Nelson and Geza Bodolay
placed onl: fifth and sixth after
strong races in the afternoon, in

B ig Ten Conference
Makes Recruiting Pact

M Faces Wisconsin
In Basketball Finale

Special To The Daily
MADISON-It's a foregone con-
clusion that the Michigan basket-
ball team will shatter a few rec-
ords in this afternoon's finale at
Wisconsin, but it remains doubt-
ful if the Wolverines can con-
quer the same Badgers which ruled
out all Michigan pipe dreams of a
title just a month ago.
The teams go into this after-
noon's encounter with identical
7-6 records in the Big Ten. The
winner has a claim to a piece of
a third place tie if Indiana is un-
able to upset front-running Ohio
State. The loser is condemned to
a sixth place berth in the closely-
packed Conference.
Records To Fall
Michigan's star and All-Big Ten
selection, Bill Buntin, will break
two season scoring marks with
his second field goal in this, after-
noon's contest. M. C. Burton's 316
points in the Big Ten and John
Tidwell's overall season record. of
520 points' will both fall if Buntin
is able to swish through just four
points. In addition, the Wolver-
ines as a team ineed just 36 points
to crack an all-time season record
of 1790 set in 1958-9.
To Avenge Loss
Coach Dave Strack and his
charges will be out to avenge the
81-78 dumping by Wisconsin last

month. It was in that one that
Michigan had its conference rec-
ord evened up at 3-3 and saw vi-
sions of a championship fade into
Buntin, the conference's top re-
bounder, will be put to a stern
test on the boards once again by
his closest rival in that depart-
ment, Jack Brens, the Badger cen-
ter. Brens averages almost 13 re-
bounds along with his 17.4 points
per game.
Ken Siebel, the Badger captain
and leading scorer goes into the
tilt with an 18.0 point average and
is flanked at forward by Tom
Gwyn who scored 12 against the
Wolverines at Ann Arbor.



CHICAGO (4) - Big Ten ath-
letic leaders, closing their two-
day March business meetings, for-
mally approved an interconference
letter of intent program and had a
split reaction on two recruiting
proposals yesterday.
Faculty representatives and ath-
letic directors, convening jointly.
moved to join a program with
the Big Eight, Southwest and
other conferences and independ-
ent schools to curb free-for-all me-
cruiting of prep stars through mu-
tual respect for tender signings.
Must Be Reviewed
The Big Ten's action, however,
must be reviewed by individual
member schools and acted upon
again at the conference spring
meeting in Minneapolis May 17-18.
The joint group rejected a prev-
iously-approved proposal for per-
mitting unlimited home visitation
of prospective athletes by athletic
staff members, but submitted a
modified plan for approval at the
May meeting.
The substitute proposal would
permit one home visit to a pros-.
pect by a staff member of a Big
Ten school between Dec. 1 and the
April 1 date for opening issuance
of tenders.
Another Proposal
However, another recruiting
proposal - permitting athletic
staff members to visit high schools
with permission of principals to
confer with pre-athletic officials
o na prospective athlete-was ap-
proved by the joint group and be-
comes effective immediately.
The letter of intent program on
an interference basis is a substi-

tute for a national plan already
twice rejected by the NCAA at its
annual conventions.
The Big Eight andSouthwest
Conferences already have a pact
to respect signing of tenders after
Feb. 15. The Big Ten's tender
starting date is April 1. Under the
interconference agreement, parti-
cipating leagues and independents
would observe a June 15 deadline
for athletes changing to a school
of final choice.
Tender Jumping
Any jumping of tenders then
would bring a two-year ineligibil-
ity of the athlete involved.
The joint Big Ten group also:
Approved Michigan's request to
start football practice Aug. 28 in-
stead of Sept. 1 because that
school, under a new academic cal-
endar, will start class Sept. 3.
Asked basketball coaches to
draft a trial 18-game conference
schedule for study by the joint
group as a possible replacement
for the present 14-game league
Tabled a proposal to switch
conference basketball games from
Monday to Tuesday nights, pend-
ing study of the 18-game loop
