however, and took Corriere down
for two points in the first period..
The best Corriere could do was

escape once in the second period.
In the third period Mullines es-
caped to make the score 3-1, and
then fended off Corriere's advan-
ces to maintain the winning mar-
Corriere's loss was not the only
big upset of the day.
Iowa's Tom Huff, the nation's
number one ranked wrestler at
130-lbs. was pinned in his first
match by Purdue's Dick McCoryat
at 1:41 of an overtime period. Huff
had built up a 5-0 lead in the first
minute, but then was helpless to
McCory's advances.
A possible reason for the upset
was that Huff came into Lansing
overweight and had to start taking
off pounds on Thursday night. He
subsequently had to sweat off four
pounds before Friday morning's
An encouraging note for the
Wolverines was the showing of
little Nick Armelagos. Although
only winning one match, he came
within 15 seconds of upsetting se-
cond seeded George Hobbs.

Armelagos almost pinned Hobbs
but the more experienced Spartan
held him off and just managed to

AN EYE-FUIJ--Spectators at yesterday's qualifying sessions of th e Big Ten Gymnastics meet needed both eyes to catch all the action
since two events were run at once. The finals of the mee t will be held this afternoon at 2 p.m. in the I-M Building. d
Montpetit Wins All-Around, Hynds Third

and Dick Cephas won their heats,
in 7.9 and 8.0 respectively, and
in addition Dick Thelwell and
Phil Williams also qualified, by
finishing third and fourth respec-
tively in their heats.
Odegard Impressive
Minnesota's great hurdler, Dave
Odegard, won his heat in 8.0. He
also won his high hurdle heat,
bettering McRae's time by two-
tenths of a second.
Both eased up, which last
night was the rule rather than the
exception as the thinclads obvious-
ly were saving their best shots for
today's finals.
Michigan will be seeking its
third straight Big Ten Indoor title
As expected, the Wolverines
were particularly strong in the
middle distance events.
Coach Don Canham chose to
enter Ergas Leps in the 880 and,
the perpetual - motion junior
responded with a stretch run that
would do ruin to Silky Sullivan.
Running last until the field hit
the final turn, Leps sprinted past
everyone, then seemed surprised
to find himself in front, eased up
and was passed by Minnesota's
Bill Mawe. The time was 1:5.7.
Dave Martin won his 880 heat
by taking a two-yard lead on the
final lap and holding off Iowa's
Ralph Trimble at the wire. His
time was a slow 2:08.8.
Two Qualifiers
Wally Schafer and Charlie
Aquino both qualified for the 1000-
yard run final. Schafer won his
heat in 2:16.6 and Aquino was sec-
ond to Iowa's Gary Fisher, who
won looking back in 2:15.4.

Frank Geist was the only Wol-
verine to qualify in the 600-yard
run. He was second to Northwest-
ern's Ed West, who's 1:12.6 is the
best 600 in the, Big Ten this win-
The only event in which Michi-
gan didn't qualify was the 440.
Len Cercone, running with a taped
leg, was fourth in his semi-final
and Bryan Gibson was fifth.
The long-awaited duel in the
60-yard dash between Tom Robin-
son and Indiana's Eddie Miles was
put off until today because there
weren't enough entries to warrant
preliminary rounds.
Robinson and Miles did compete
in the 300, however, but in separ-
ate heats. Robinson won his dash
in a gallop in :31.1, and an eased-
up Miles finished third in his heat
to MSU's Don Voorheis. Michigan's
Carter Reese also qualified.

The Wolverines and the Illini
combined to qualify first in every
event as Michigan's Tom Oster-
land took an early lead in re-
bound tumbling and Hal Holmes
of Illinois has an almost-insur-
mountable lead in tumbling.
Montpetit qualified first in still
rings, high bat and side horse,
tied for second on parallel bars,
and qualified fourth in free exer-
Hadley, 1960 Big Ten and free
exercise champion got off to a
first-day lead in that ,event, and
qualified first in parallel bars,
eighth on the high bar, and sec-
ond qn still rings.
Holmes Phenomenal
Holmes qualified at 96/2, the
highest individual score of the
day, and takes a 13-point lead
into the finals over second-place
qualifier Jim.Brown. of Michigan.
Osterland qualified third in tum-
bling to help offset Holmes' first.
The Wolverines' best chance for
a sweep tomorrow will come in
the -high bar, on which Montpetit'
qualified first with 9512, followed
by Hynds and teammate Gil La-
rose at 92 and 901/2, respecti'vely.
On the other hand, Illinois

Significant Factor.
Perhaps the most significant
factor in the Wolverines' good-
showing thus far has been the
performance of its sophomore spe-
Barry Spicer, Lew Fenner, and
Halph Bromund, qualified sixth in
free exercise, fifth on the side
horse, and fourth on still rings,
respectively, to provide strong sup-
port to Hynds, Larose, and Mont-
petit, who competed in the five
all-around events. Also, Mark Er-
enburg backed up Osterland on
the trampoline by qualifying in
a tie for sixth.
In addition to their high bar
performances, Hynds also quali-
fied ninth on the side horse, and
fourth on parallel bars, while La-
rose qualified in a tie for eighth

Larose might have finished as
high as third in the all-events,
but he slipped during his parallel
bar routine and had to settle for
461/2 points in the event and an
eighth place in the all-events
Michigan State showed expected
strength in tumbling, free exer-
cise, and on the trampoline, qual-
ifying three men in each event.
The Spartans' John Daniels
qualified 'second in free exercise,
three points behind Hadley, while
Gani Browsh of MSU was third,
and Larry Bassett was fifth.
In tumbling, Steve Johnson
qualified fifth for Michigan State,

and teammates Chuck Thompson
and Daniels qualified sixth and
eighth, respectively. On the tram-
poline Johnson qualified second,
Thompson fourth, and Gary
Moreland tied Erenburg for sixth.
Iowa suffered a setback-an in-
jury to all-around performer Jon
Cada during practice-which may
eventually- cost the Hawkeyes a
possible fourth or fifth place fin-
ish in the meet.
While it may appear that the
Wolverines are in command at this
point, Illinois cannot be counted
out. The Illini aren't about to give
up a 12th straight Conference ti-
tle without a strong fight.

Pond, an ex-Marine, said that
"the issue 'is still in doubt, but
we're the Marines," meaning, of
course, that his team is used to the
pressure, and still is in position to
grab top honors.
After the afternoon session in
which the Wolverines qualified
the maximum nine men in three
events, Loken noted that the team
was performing "like a house on
His enthusiasm was dampened
in the evening session when Illi-
nois qualified, 10 men to Michi-
gan's eight, but he still felt the

It's Coyle Night
Senior goalie Jim Coyle, who
usually plays the first game of the
series, will be allowed to play his
last game of the regular season in
the familiar confines of the Michi-
gan Coliseum when the teams meet
again tonight.
The Wolverines showed only
flashes of their potential in the
MSU arena, but the few spurtu
were enough to brush aside the
disorganized Spartans who usually
give Michigan a better fight in
East Lansing.
The game started slowly, but
Berenson started moving midway
through the period and at the 11-
mihute mark he dragged the puck
the length of the ice through the
entire Spartan team and drove one
past MSU goalie John Chandik.
Goalie Dave Butts picked up his
second assist of the year on the
Power Play
Five minutes later, Berenson
drove up the middle of the ice on
a power play, but the other four
Michigan attackers might as well

have been spectators as the husky
center rifled a 30-footer into an
upper corner.
The recently-formed second line
of Tom Pendlebury, Al Hinnegan
and Babcock started off the second
period with its best shift of play to
At 1:54 Pendlebury slapped one
past Chandik for a 3-0 count, and
28 seconds later hustled into a
corner and dug out a perfect pass
to Babcock in front of the net.
Babcock tucked it away.
The already poor quality of play
slipped even further after that,
and a few minutes later Bob Doyle
wrecked Butts' shutout hopes by

scoring from a scramble Just In
front of the net.
The rest of the second period
was scoreless, but Michigan drew
blood again at 5:22 of the final
stanza of scrub play. Butch Nielsen
ripped a shot from the blue line
and the puck deflected in off Bab-
cock's stick.
Berenson, who had slowed down
after his early outburst, gathered
energy a little later for a last
thrust in the closing seconds of a
power play opportunity and blazed
in on Chandik. The MSU goalie
made the stop, but when the puck
fell still in front of him, captain
Dale MacDonald trailed in and
converted it for the final 6-1 count.

Clark breezed home in an amaz-
ing time of 2:14.3 in the fastest
breaststroke race ever. The next
four men all finished under 2:20.0
with Chet Jastremski the runner-
up in 2:15.9. Clark led all the way
as he chopped more than three
seconds off the listed NCAA mark
of 2:17.6.w
Dick Nelson swam his fastest
time, 2:19.4, to take fifth place.
Ken Ware finished in a three-way
tie for twelfth.
McKinney left everyone behind
as he sped to a 1:59.8 'clocking,

the fastest ever recorded in the
United States. However, Michi-
gan's Fred Wolf, Alex Gaxiola,
Steve Thrasher, and Mike Reis-
sing placed fourth, fifth, tenth
and twelfth, respectively to pick
up twelve and' one-half points-
only five less than Indiana.
