fine season for Reissing who had
laced fourth in the Big Ten
feet at the distance of 200 yds.,
nd had swum with the third-
lace 400 yd. medley relay team,
His 200 yd. victory was a varsity
ecord of 2:04.2. However, two
eeks later, in a dual meet against
idiana, he lowered his own record
y .7 seconds, to 2:03.7, a mark
rhich stood until Ed Bartsch
roke it this year.

Bartsch, Michigan's speedy sopho-
more nosed out Schaefer for sec-
ond place, the reason why Reis-
sing fell from fourth to fifth.
And, in the 100 yd. backstroke,
he tied for tenth place, to account
for 5% points (Michigan edged
Minnesota, 147%/-1401/2).
With his fastest time coming
just before the NCAA meet to be
held March 28, 29, and 30. Mike
is looking forward to giving a fine
performance in his last races for
He expects to do well personally,
and qualify for the finals. "There
are seven swimmers faster than
I am in the nation at 200 yds., but

two of them swim for Indiana, and
so can't compete in the NCAA
meet (Indiana is on probation).
That leaves five and there are six
qualifying places for the finals,
so I expect to place."
He also expects the team as a
whole to do well, and picks them
to place fourth at the meet, be-
hind Minnesota (Steve Jackman
and Walt Richardson should be
enough to score 60 points between
them), Yale and Southern Cali-
Polo Player
Besides swimming, Reissing is
a member of the water polo club
which is fighting for recognition.
In their one game this year, they
trounced a Princeton team, 10-3.
In high school he was on tne
state championship water polo

team for two years, 1957 and 1958.
Thus, in three years at Michi-
gan, Reissing has had a solid role
in the fortunes of the Wolverines.
He has set a varsity record, scored
all three years in the Big Ten
meet, and scored consistently in
dual meets. This year he hopes
and expects to top off his career
by scoring in the NCAA meet, and
should be able to do so. It would
be a fitting finale to a fine career
as a Michigan backstroker.

Michigan, mostly on the strength
of Bill Buntin's league-leading
performance, headed the Big Ten
in team rebounding this past cage
The Wolverines, who finished in
a tie for fourth, picked off 680
rebounds, 33 more than Wisconsin.
Illinois finished third with 627.

Reissing, like many Wolverine
athletes, grew up in Michigan. He
started swimming, competitively at
12 in neighborhood meets in his
home town of Detroit. Soon after
he entered Redford High, where
he was a swimmer for four years.
He helped lead Redford to, three,
Metropolitan League champion-
ships. As a senior Reissing cap-,
tained his team.
Following his brother Ted, who
swam the backstroke for Michigan
in 1956, 1957 and 1958, and placed
third in the Big Ten meet, Reis-
sing entered Michigan in Septem-
ber, 1959, bringing with him an
ability to swim, a fine high school
record, and a University of Mich-
igan shield for outstanding schol-
ars and athletes.
As a sophomore he swam in
several dual meets for Michigan,
and scored two points in the Big
Ten meet that year.
This year, as a senior, Reissing
had been having troubles until the
Big Ten meet. However, he regain-
ed the form he showed in his jun-
ior year under the stimulus of
extreme competition, and swam
his fastest time ever for 200 yds.,
2:03.1 seconds. In doing this, he
took fifth place behind the three
swimmers who beat him in 1962,

SENIOR BACKSTROKER-Mike Reissing, who last week in the
Big Ten meet swam the best time he has ever swum for 200 yds.
With the NCAA meet coming up, he is at top speed and expects to
do even better, and should qualify for the finals.

Jones in 10
NEW YORK R-) - Rocked in
the first round, cocky Cassius
Clay rallied to gain a narrow, un-
popular 10-round decision over
Doug Jones of New York at Madi-
son Square Garden last night.
The self-proclaimed" greatest
heavyweight of them all" looked
far from that as he failed to even
score a knockdown over his small-
er rival.
The capacity crowd of 18,732 let
loose with a storm of boos and
cries of "fake" seconds after the
unanimous verdict was announced:
Judge Frank Forbes and Judge
Artie Aidala 5-4-1 each in rounds;
and Referee Joe Loscalzo 8-1-1.
The A? card had Jones in front,
Only a sweep of the last two
rounds carried the undefeated
Clay from the brink of disaster.
He won those two rounds from all
of the officials and that won it.
Never once did the 202%-lb.
Clay, a 3-1 favorite, come close to
flooring his 188-lb. rival. The 21-
year-old Louisville contender had
predicted "Jones will fall in four."

der yesterday to prohibit Missis-

team from playing in the National
Collegiate playoffs at East Lansing
But a spokesman for the univer-
sity said last night the school's
basketball team has no intention
at present of withdrawing from the
The statement by a spokesman
for the athletic department came
several hours after the injunction:
"We have received no official
word and have not gotten any
court orders," said the spokes-
man, who declined to be identified
by name. "As of 9:20 tonight, we
are going to the tournament. We
will leave as scheduled tomorrow."
Porter signed the temporary
injunction at Brandon and attor-
neys filed it with the Hinds Coun-
ty chancery clerk here.
It forbids spending State's mon-
ey for mixed athletic activities
outside the state and from breach-
ing what it termed the public
policy against integrated athletics.
State Sen. Billy Mitts of Enter-
prise and B. W. Lawson secured
the injunction against the State

Leave Today
The state basketball team was
scheduled to leave today for the
NCAA tournament and play Loy-

Loyola -has four Negro starters.
In the order signed by Judge
Porter, the two men said the de-
cision of the State College Board
to permit the trip previously auth-
orized by MSU President D. W.
Colvard "is contrary to the pub-
lic policy of the citizens in this
state and the majority of the citi-
zens of this state do not uphold
the board."

in athletic competition against
teams with "members other than

SOUTH BEND, Ind.-Joe Ku-

head football coach yesterday, re-
newing Irish gridiron headaches
of recent years both on the field
and in the coaching ranks.
Kuharich's resignation, coming
shortly before the start of spring
football, came as a surprise des-
pite the fact that rumors floated
freely last fall that the former
professional mentor was on his
way out.
Notre Dame quickly announced
that freshman coach Hugh Devore
would serve as interim coach for
the 1963 season and that Kuharich
would take an administrative posi-

Scorer; Sets
Two Marks
Final Michigan basketball scor-
ing statistics for the season com-
pleted Saturday showed that soph-
omore center Bill Buntin eclipsed
two Wolverine scoring records.

age bettered John Tidwell's 520
in 1959-60, while his 329 markers
in the Big Ten toppled M. C. Bur-
ton's mark of 316 set in 1958-59.
Buntin also led the Wolverines
in rebounds with 376. Captain Tom
Cole was runner-up in both de-
partmentsdkith 324 points and

Michigan, on the strength of their

field goal attempts, but .unfortu-

on 40.0 per cent of their shots,
eighth best in the conference.
Minnesota had the toughest de-
