2rs Win on Late Scores

Cindermen i Big Ten Tuneup


(Continued from Page 1)
publicity flowing out of Houghton.
Same goes for Elov Seger and
John Ivanitz.
Angotti, if you will remember,
is the same gentleman who threat-
ened to de-capitate referee Marty
Pavelich during his visit to Ann
Arbor last month..
He experienced no such prob-
lems ,last night, however, as he
proved to the a thorn in the
Wolverines' side. His second goal,
late in the second period, was a
stereo-type of the first as he cut
across the blue line and deposited
the puck into the far corner. He
almost added another a minute
later when he got a breakaway,
but couldn't get a shot off.
Coyle Brilliant
It was Coyle who kept the Wol-
verines in the game in the second
period as he came up with some
big saves.
In the third period Michigan's
newly formed lines began to jell,
as the Wolverines started to carry
the play.
The line of Cushing, White and
Kelly scored its second goal of the
night to tie the score midway

through the last period. Kelly took
a pass from Rodgers and beat
goalie Bill Rowe on a shot from
the wing. This was a singular ef-
fort for Kelly who usually lets his
line-mates do the shooting.
The Huskies came back strong
and almost broke the tie less than
a minute later, but Coyle was there
to cover the puck as five players
piled on top.
New Line Jells
Lunghamer, who, with Dale
MacDonald, has recently been
placed on a line with Red Beren-
son, -celebrated the occasion by
popping in two goals.
.His go-ahead goal came on a
MacDonald pass and gave Michi-
gan a 3-2 lead with 10 minutes left
in the game. The insurance tally,
at 16:17, was accomplished when
he shouldn't have even been on the
Lunghamer's line had been on
the ice for its turn and the cen-
\ter, Berenson, had been replaced
by Larry Babcock. He and Mac-
Donald refused to give up, though,
and Lunghamer punched in a re-
bound to ice the Win.
The,Wolverines lost the services
of defenseman Butch Nielsen with
eight minutes left when he was
helped from the ice. It was not
known whether bie would be able
to return to action tonight.

Two thoughts will be in track:
Coach Don Canham's mind to-
day as he watches his athletes
go through their paces in the
Michigan Open trackfest.
Qualifying heats and the broad
jump finals take place at 1 p.m.
in Yost Field House, with the
other field events and the finals
in the running events slated for
7:30 p.m.
Canham's obvious concern will
be with the performances of his
troops in the Open, but lurking
incognito in' the back of his mind
will be thoughts of the upcoming
Big Ten indoor meet, only one
week away.

Indiana's speedy Eddie Miles in
the 60 and 300 at Illinois?
These might be a few of the
questions answered today, and
Canham hopes the answers are to'
the affirmative.
The featured event of the Open
could be the 60-yd, dash where
Robinson will meet teammates
John Gregg and Mac Hunter, in
addition to Leroy Jackson.
Legs Unbeaten
Miler Ergas Leps, who has yet
to be beaten this year, may also

find his stiffest competition of
the winter in that event. Running
against him will be a pair of 4:15
milers, Bob Schul of the Air Force
and Bert Ohlander, from Western
Illinois via Scandinavia.
To win, Leps will have to.im-
prove his 4:18.9 clocking of a
week ago when he won the event
against Michigan State.
What transpires tomorrow will
provide Canham with a few an-
swers, and it will also reduce his
thoughts to one.

It was 11 years ago, in 1950,
when the Wolverines last went
undefeated. That was the year
they whipped seven straight oppo-
nents, only to finish second to
perennial conference champion Il-

igan and the Fighting Ipini did
not meet in dual meet competition
that year.

late in the first period, turned
loose Sam Jones. Frank Ramsey

ing Syracuse 144-128 yesterday.
The NBA contest, played before
a Boston Garden gathering of 12,-
238, had been delayed because the
Celtics could not get air trans-
portation from New York.
TheBoston victory, which saw
Syracuse Coach Alex Hannum
thrown out for arguing in the first
period, left the Celtics magic num-
ber at five. Any combination of
Boston victories and Philadelphia
defeats adding to five will clinch
their fifth straight Eastern Divi-
sion title for the Celtics.
NEW YORK (P) - The St.
Louis Hawks, playing without Cliff
Hagan and Woody Sauldsberry,
held off the New York Knicker-
bockers for a 122-119 victory in a
NBA game atMadison Square
Garden last night.
The victory wasn't established
until the Hawks, losing a first
half 20-point lead, battled through
a four-minute session wtihout a
field goal down the stretch.
Len Wilkens and Clyde Lovel-
lette, who scored 29 and 28 points,
respectively, for St. Louis, did key

including Illinois, and is confident
of bringing home its first confer-
ence championship under Loken's
reign next week.
While Indiana doesn't loom as
a threat to the Wolverines un-
beaten record, the Hawkeyes
could pose a problem to Loken's
charges. Russ Porterfield is con-
sidered "excellent" on the high
bar by Loken, and should give
Michigan standouts Rich Mont-
petit and Gil Larose competition
in that event. Don Carney and
Roger Gedney will try and, make
the Wolverines' Tom Osterland
work for a win in his favorite,
the "Trampoline."

In addition to rebound tum-
bling, Gedney is considered out-

The Hawkeyes have lost only
two meets this year, to Illinois
and Michigan State. One victory
today will give them a fourth
place finish in the Big Ten dual
meet standings.
Indiana, the, meet's underdog,
will set a split in the day's activi-
ties as their goal. With their
overall record now standing at
5-4, the Hoosiers need to whip
at least one of their favored op-
ponents to wind up the dual sea-
son with a winning record.
The Hoosiers, while lacking in
depth, will nevertheless provide a
couple of standouts in Jim Wood-
ward and Tom Lancaster. Wood-
ward, only a sophomore, is already
considered one of the best tum-
blers in the conference. The lead-
ing Hoosier scorer, Woodward is
also considered strong in free ex-

tune up for the track team before
they travel to Champaign to do

provide some interesting answers
as to what can be expected a
week hence.
For instance:
Will the often injured Les Bird
come out of the Open in good_
shape and be ready to take all of
his jumps in Big Ten competition,
something that he has not done
in quite a while?
After missing the Michigan
State dual meet because of ineli-
gilibity, can the now eligible Ray
Locke regain the form that made
him Big Ten outdoor shotput

meet since his Bahama vacation,

will be necessary for him to beat

This is a story of some hairless
men. Atomic radiation? No, these
are the members of Michigan's
defending Big Ten champion
swimming team.
-'Hairless? Well, shaven, or to be
shaven within the next week or
so, before the Big Ten Champion-
ships at Ohio State March 2,, 3
and 4.
Swimmers shaving their legs has
been a relatively new development,
first used by the Australians in
the 1956 Olympics. Michigan's
Dick Hanley, now in his graduate
studies here, was probably the
first American to shave his legs,
and he borrowed the idea after
going to the Olympics. The Michi-
gan team was also the first "well-
shaven" squad in the United
Shaving a Help
Asked whether the shaving was
a psychological or an actual phy-
sical help, swimming coach Gus
Stager replied, "Ever feel the bot-
tom of a boat, especially a racing
said boat? Smooth, isn't it? In
the same way a smooth body of
a swimmer moves faster, since
there's less resistance."

"You might say that the swim-
mer gets a lift out of it, because
he feels better in the water. But
that's just saying that a football
team that wears light shoes, or a
track team that slits the sides of
its runners' pants, is psychologi-
cally lifted. They wear those shoes
or pants because they are ridding
themselves of resistance."~
"Also look at the hairs on your
hand under water. Do they stand
up or lie down? They all stand up,
and slow you down.
"There are a lot of things done
to speed up swimmers," continued
Stager. "A boat sails faster on
placid water. Thus we have smooth
pools and special drains."
Should Shave?
Whether or not the team should
have shaved for the Indiana meet;
is unsure, except that Stager's
philosophy is to put the absolute
top effort into the really big
meets, the Big Ten, NCAA, and
AAU Championships, not the dual
meets. The whole year is devoted
to preparation for these meets.
For this reason, shaving is waited
until the time when their perform-
ances count the most.
