Illinois, Loyola,





VETERAN PERFORMER-Senior gymnast Jim Hynds displays the form on the parallel bars which
has enabled him to finish high in the Big Ten championships in all three of his varsity years. Hynds is
one reason why Michigan will make things interesting for Southern Illinois in this year's NCAA meet.
lynds Hits Peak on High Bar

When a gymnast fell off the
parallel bars in a high school
gymnasium in Windsor, Ont.,
seven years ago and broke his
wrist, Michigan almost lost a fine
Jim Hynds doesn't remember
who the gymnast was, but he does
recall that he .gave a second
thought to going out for the W. D.
Lowe High team after witnessing
the accident. Fortunately for,
Lowe, Michigan, and Hynds, he
gave it a try anyway, and event-
- ually became one of the Big Ten's
best all-around gymnasts.
Hynds, a 5'9", 143-lb. senior,
and one of the most personable
guys around, winds up his gym-
nastics career two weeks from to-
day at the NCAA championships
in Pittsburgh. In his three years
of competition for the Wolver-
ines, he's helped them win three
Big Ten crowns, the only ones
captured in the entire history of
the team.
Consistent Scorer
In the three Big Ten meets
he's been in, Hynds has consist-
ently racked up points in the all-
around, high bar, and parallel
bars. On the high bar, his favorite
event, he placed second in the
conference in 1961 and 1962, and
fell to third behind teammates
Arno Lascari and Gil Larose this
year at East Lansing. He's finish-
ed third twice in the all-aroaid,
two years ago and this year, and
came in fifth last season in this
event. His rankings on the p-bars
have been fourth, sixth and third,
in that order.
He's also collected scores in the
sidehorse (seventh in 1961) and
still rings (10th this year), and
wound up fourth last weekend in
the longhorse vault, an event
counted separately this year for
the first time.
But the honors he's compiled as
a Wolverine gymnast comprise
only half of the Hynds story. If
it weren't for the sport, the ami-
able Canadian's entire life would
have been altogeth'er d:Aferent
from what it is today.
Enters Trade School
"My family could never have
afforded to send me to college,"
he commented, "so I went to
Lowe to learn a trade. If I hadn't

become interested in gymnastics
through a friend of mine, I'd
probably be doing something like
drafting today."
But the near-fateful broken
wrist failed to dissuade him, and
under the guidance of his high
school coach, Bernard Newman,
who is now a member of the
Canadian Parliament, he develop-
ed into one of the most sought-
after prep athletes in the Detroit-
Windsor area. Ironically, and
luckily for all concerr.ed, Lowe
had the only gym team in the
city of Windsor.
Hynds' pathway to Ann Arbor
wasn't yet clear, however. Al-
though he was extensively recruit-
ed by many schools, Coach George
zypula of Michigan State had
the inside track. He had asked
Hynds to keep State in mind and
promised that he'd try his best
to come up with a scholarship for
Lured by Loken
And that's when Newt Loken
came on the scene. Approaching
him after a meet in Detroit, in
which Hynds had shown himself
equal to or better than many col-
lege freshmen, Loken proceeded
to lure him away from the Spar-
tans' grasp. Within a week, the
fast-acting Michigan mentor had
pushed through a tender for
Hynds, and the happy, though
slightly s n o w e d, all-arounder
gratefully accepted.
A few days later, Szypula called
him up, only to learn of Loken's
"theft" of the highly-touted prep.
Since there aren't professional
gymnasts as there are football
and basketball players, the up-
coming NCAAs will be Hynds'
final official competition, a fact
which he accepts with some re-
gret. "Pretty soon I'll have to get
used to the, fact that I won't be
at Michigan much longer," he
Science Teacher
Hynds is in the School of Edu-
cation ("not Physical Education,"
he emphasized), with biology as
his major. He wants, if possible,
to go to the Ontario College of
Education, so that he can get his
Canadian teacher's certificate;
after that, he'd like to teach sec-
ondary school science, and coach
gymnastics after classes.

Hynds feels that Newman's early
advice that he become proficient
in several events rather than con-
centrating on one has helped him
immeasurably, even though the
high bar has emerged as his
strong point. "Gymnastics as a
whole helps get you in shape for
almost any other sport," he re-
marked. "It used to be that the
only thing besides gym I was
good at was diving, but I've found
that keeping in training for gym-
nastics has improved my basket-
ball, football, and so forth.".
Group Therapy
While gymnastics isn't consid-
ered a team sport by normal
standards, Hynds emphasizes the
value of being a member of any
group of athletes. "Whenever yc a
get a bunch of guys together who
have a common interest, you're
bound to have fun," he philoso-
phized. "In gymnastics, it seerms
as though you put an awful lot
in before you get anything out,
but once the returns start com-
ing in, they're overwhelming."
Though Hynds is a stauch sup-
porter of the sport, he does frown
upon the nuihber of unnecessary
injuries that occur in it. On the
high bar in particular, he doesn't
have much respect for the con-
testant who refuses to be spotted
-in fact, he strongly suggests a
rule whereby two spotters would
be required to guard the bar for
each performer.
Hynds sees the NCAA tourney
this year as a two-team battle all
the way between Michigan and
Southern Illinois. "It'll be now
or not for a long time for us," he
predicted, "but the way we've
been keyed up since the Big Ten,
we'll be pretty tough to stop."

champion Illinois, sparked by
lanky reserve Skip Thoren scored1
an uphill 70-67 victory over Bowl-
ing Green of Ohio in the opener
of the NCAA Mid-East Regionalj
basketball tournament last night.
Illinois sewed up the game onI
four straight free throws by Bill
Small all within the final 29
seconds, the last pair with one
second remaining.
However, it was the six-foot-9
Thoren who ignited the struggling
Illini in the second half, after they
had finished with a spurt to trail
37-35 at halftime.
The score was tied eight times
before Illinois went ahead for
keeps with a five point lead at'
63-58 with little more than five
minutes left.
It was at this point that Thoren,
playing a double post with 6'9"
Bill Burwell, came through with
three vital baskets. His last field
goal with about three minutes left
gave Illinois an insurmountaole
65-60 lead.
The Illini were led by Burwell
with 21 points and Downey with
20. Thoren collected five baskets,
four in the second half.
The Falcons were led by Kom-
ives' 25 points.

Ever since high school, Stanley
"Pete" Cox has aimed towards
one goal: becoming one of the
divers to represent the U.S. at
the 1964 Olympic games at Tokyo.
Although the competition will
be tough, Cox believes that if he
has a good day he can become
one of the two divers who will go
to Tokyo. "Trying out is an op-
portunity not extended to many
people, so I'm delighted to have
the chance."
Cox is one of the steadiest and
most consistenthperformers on
the team. He has competed in
most of the dual meets since be-
coming a member of the varsity,
and has scored points virtually
every time he has competed.
Strangely enough, however, he has
never been awarded first place in
competition, although seconds end
thirds have been plentiful.
Consistent Scorer
He has also been consistent in
the Big Ten meet. As a junior
last year he came in fourth in
the 1-meter diving and fifth in
the 3-meter diving, scoring 9%/
points for the Wolverines. This
year he repeated his performance.

Cox Aims for National Meets

Last year Cox also placed fourth
on the highboard and seventh on
the lowboard at the NCAA meet.
For this performance he was se-
lected an All-America, on both
the highboard and thelowboard.
This year he expects to improve
his showing, and hopes to place
third or fourth on both the 1-
meter and 3-meter diving.
However, to do so, and also to
make the Olympic team, he will
have to beat several divers he has
never defeated before, including
Lou Vitucci of OSU and Rick Gil-
bert of Indiana. In the NCAAs
he will also be trying to beat
Juan Botella of OSU, who is from
Mexico. In the Olympic trials he
will have to defeat John Vogel
of Purdue, last year's NCAA
Too Slow
Cox started diving in junior
high school when he discovered
that he was too slow as a swim-
mer. In high school, at Saginaw's
Arthur Hill High School, he wras
Michigan state champion and
twice a high school All-America
selection. As a senior he also
captained the team.
Pete gives the credit for his
success to his two coaches: David
Gainey, his high school coach,
and Dick Kimball of Michigan.
He says of Kimball, "He is really
a fine coach and aided me tre-
However, he is not completely
satisfied with his diving. "Divers
always try to achieve a consis-
tency of perfection, which makes
diving the pleasure and challenge
that it is."
Would Improve If...
He feels that his point totals
would increase significantly and
enable him to beat the divers who
have been his nemesis if he
could learn to point his toes more.
For diving is partially scored on

how the diver enters the water,
and he loses points with his less-
pointed toes.
Cox will have a chance to see
if he has corrected this flaw before
the NCAA meet. Early in April
he will go to the NAAU meet,
which serves as qualifying trials
for the Pan-American games.
There he will compete against
divers who are still in high
school and divers who are 30
years old. But Vitucci, Vogel and
Gilbert will also be there, along
with Bob Webster, an Olympic
champion and one of the best
highboard divers.
Besides being a diver, Cox is
captain of the cheerleaders. He
has been a member of the squad
isince 'his freshman year. The
cheerleaders are all gymnasts
and divers. He likes the squad the
way it is now, and opposes adding
or changing to female cheer-
Problems, Problems
"We should try out girl cheer-
leaders and allow the students to
see they don't really want them.
There are mny problems asso-
ciated with girl cheerleaders such
as transportation to away games,
the fact that the choices would
become a popularity contest
rather than a contest of ability.
The guys do a good job."
Since he is a senior, Cox would
like to leave Michigan as a mem-
ber of a national championship
team. He believes that the Wol-
verines can win "if our times im-
prove as much as they did for the
Big Tens. But we have to hope
that Yale and Minnesota will hurt
each other in the freestyle
Cbx may or may not make the
Olympic team. In any case he will
have to give his finest perform-
ance. If he is selected, it would be
a fitting climax to a fine college


'Post' Reveals Charge
Of 1962 SEC Grid Fix

second-ranked Blue Devils, spark-
ed as usual by All-America Art
Heyman and Jeff Mullins, stopped
New York University 81-76 last
Mullins scored 25 points as Duke
rolled to its 19th consecutive vic-
tory, but it was the sparkling all-
around play of Heyman which lit
the fuse to a crushing second half
Heyman tallied 14 of his 22
points in the second period, and
assisted teammates on six more
baskets as Duke rolled up a 63-45
lead with 91/ minutes to play.
NYU, led by All-America Barry
Kramer, staged a remarkable
comeback, after trailing 78-62 with
about four minutes remaining to
chop the deficit to just four points
with 45 seconds to play.
Then Heyman sank a foul shot
and dribbled away most of the re-
maining time after NYU missed a
field goal attempt.
Kramer topped all scorers with
34 points.
Hawks hit a phenomenal 64 per
cent of their shots in the first
half-including 16 of their first
27 attempts to roll up a 58-37
half-time advantage enroute to a
97-88 upset victory over West Vir-
ginia despite a 44 point output by

years and was head football
coach as well as athletic director
until 1961.
The Post article was written by
Frank Graham Jr., and is en-
titled "The Story of a College
Football Fix."
The Post quoted an Atlanta in-
surance salesman, George Bur-
nett, as saying he was connected
accidentally into a telephone con-
versation between Butts and Bry-
ant on Sept. 14-eight days before
the Georgia-Alabama game in
Burnett told the Post he heard
Butts give Bryant detailed in-
formation on the Georgia team's
offensive and defensive patterns.
Griffith Informed
After the season ended, Burnett
told his story to Johnny Griffith,
who succeeded Butts as head
coach at Georgia.
The story is contained in the
March 23, 1963 issue of the Post
scheduled for general distribu-
tion Tuesday.
The Post said that after Grif-
fith talked with Burnett about
the alleged telephone conversa-
tion, he relayed the information
to university officials and told
them he would resign as head
coach if Butts were permitted to
remain as athletic director.
Subsequently, the Post said,
Burnett met with an attorney
representing the university and
Aderhold. The article said Bur-
nett passed a lie detector test
"to everybody's satisfaction."
The article added : ". . . On
Feb. 23 the University of Georgia
Athletic Board met hastily in At-
lanta and confronted Butts with
Burnett's testimony. Challenged,
Butts refused to take a lie de-
tector test. The next day's news-
papers reported that he had sub-
mitted his resignation effective
immediately 'for purely personal
and business reasons.'"
