star Murray Rose, who had a
record-breaking time of 17:21.8.
Rose's time cut 9.5 seconds off

Cal's Tom Winters at 17:48.0.
Aubrey Burer of SMU was sixth.
An unheralded entrant from
Denver University whipped Amer-
ica's Olympic star, Lance Larson
of Southern California, and crack-
ed Larson's record for the 200-yd.
individual medley. John Kelso, a
junior who grew: up in the tiny;
hamlet of Ocean Falls, B.-C., gave
Denver its first national swimming
After serving notice in the pre-
liminaries when he led the field
of twenty-one swimmers in 2:03.3,
Kelso came out i nthe finals last
night and outswam Larson in the
last 100 yards of the race.
His time of 2:02.9 beat Larson's
American and NCAA record by'
four-tenths of a second. Larson led
the first lap by four feet, gave
way to Harvard's Robert Kauf-
mann in the backstroke lap, but
when. he tried to regain the lead
in the breaststroke he found Kelso
at his shoulder. The Denverite
took the final freestyle lap by five
feet. Michigan's Fred Wolf failed,
to qualify.
Oddly, off the three men expect-
ed to come in one-two-three, Lar-
son, Dennis Rounseville, also of
Southern Cal, and Dave Burgess
of Yale, the places were second,
sixth, arid fourth, respectively.
The loss of points in this race
could help Michigan a great deal
in its bid for another NCAA cham-
pionship after being dethroned
last year by this same Southern
California team.

TAKEN FROM SCRAPS of notes around the desk:
One of the hardest things to understand is 'the rhyme or reason
behind the locations chosen for the finals in National Collegiate Ath-
litic Association competition.
This weekend, NCAA championships are being decided in swim-
ming and wrestling, with both sports being decided on the West Coast.
The swimming title is up for grabs in Seattle, Washington, while the
maut hopefuls gather at Corvalis, Oregon.
Questions can be raised to these locations on one simple basis-
money, and the ability of schools to send full teams. For example,
Michigan, considered one of the top wrestling teams in the nation,
will be entering only four competitors in that sport. The Wolverine
swimmers in NCAA competition will be a scant dozen of the nearly
30-man regular squad. And Michigan is usually a-top contender.
Why? It simply costs too much to send full complements to such
far-off places. At $200-plus per man for transportation to the Pacific
Coast, the athletic department is reluctant indeed to send full teams.
And if you think Michigan has problems, think of the expense in-.
volved for the Harvard and Yale swimming teams, or the Pittsburgh
or Penn State wrestling squads-all of. which are considered prime
candidates for NCAA honors.
A suggestion 'from this corner is that the NCAA might be wise
to hold its championship events throughout mid-America-thus pre-
venting or at least minimizing a possible geographical bias in the dis-
tribution of NCAA titles.
. . . I.
< EAKING OF NCAA championships, when the Denver hockey team
won its national crown last week, it was the second NCAA title
won by that school in a matter of days. Less than a week before, the
Pioneer skiers had taken the crown in that sport. It was only the
18th time that a' school had won two NCAA crowns in a single year..
Only twelve schools have pulled the twin-title trick. Michigan and
Oklahoma State have each accomplished it three times. Wolverine
teama did it in 1948 (hockey an'd swimming), 1953 (hockey and base-
ball), and 1957 (swimming and tennis)..
Wolverine teams have copped 20 NCAA titles through the years,
placing them above all Big Ten teams in that respect (Illinois is nex4
with 15), and fourth in the nation behind Southern Cal (27), Yale
(25), and Oklahoma State (25).
THE RECENTLY-R9 LEASED LIST of Michigan lettermen in winter
sports might cause a furrowed brow or two around campus. It
could be suggested that some high-level consideration be given in the.
athletic department to setting up fairly uniform standards for getting
a letter in the various sports.
As it is now, much depends on whim of the coaches involved. At
. least two names were noticeable by their absence from the list of
swimming monogram winners-Terry Slonaker and Mike Reissing.
Both men scored points in the. Big Ten meet, the usual criteria for a
letter. While it is true that the expanded point system in the Confer-
ence meet 'this year let them score points they wouldn't have reg-
istered last year, the fact remains that they both competed in dual
meets through the season and were regular members of the team.
But compare this with hockey, where a few brief minutes of
play in any game qualifies the player for a letter. It doesn't seem
quite equitable for swimmers or trackmen to have their: letters de-
pendent on a single meet. To have a dropped baton, a missed turn, or
even a split-second decision cost a regular competitor a letter seems
hardly fair. .
Why not base all letters on a .given amount of competition. Foot-
ball does this 'with a minimum of complaints. Last fall, end Jim Zub-
kus scored a conversion and reserve halfback John Kowalik tallied a
touchdown in Big Ten play-but neither got a letter. When require-
mernts are clear-and fair-no complaints arise. pet scoring count for
headlines only and let playing time decide who letters.
A letter has meaning to some of the athletes. Some of them need
incentive--they all aren't on scholarships!

H= ATE TO KICK A DEAD HORSE, but local puck fans might be in-
terested to note that Minnesota hockey coach John Mariucci again
refused to schedule Denver for next year-even with all the Denver
stars graduating.
And since the Michigan-Minnesota seties is off a year, it seems as
if Mariucci-that scheduling genius---is in the driver's seat, playing
the bottom of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

Last fall's Michigan football captain, Jerry Smith, keeps getting
- pleasant surprises. After returning from sunny Hawaii and the Hula
Bowl in January to greet his new daughter (well, not quite a sur-
prise), he recently returned from classes to find on his doorstep a
complete set of encyclopedias. They were the gift of a book company
and had his name engraved on the covers in honor of his making
Scholkstic All-American.
When the Ann Arbor Hessenaur hockey team needed a few new
players recently, who should get the call but a pair of just-retired
. Wolverine icers. Donning 'new uniforils for a game or two were Butch
Nielsen and- Jim Coyle.
= Coyle, for three years Michigan's goalie, must have felt out of
character as he and Nielsen 'teamed up as a defense duo. Says Coyle
in defense "of -his new position, "Sure, I can skate-believe it or not.
In fact Butch and I were the two best defensemen on the ice."
' After Hessenaur handed a strong Akron, Ohio, aggregation a
one-sided beating, nobody was going to argue with him.

IM Department Be..gins
ve New SportsClubs

"The men's Physical Education
department here at the Univer-
sity is now in the process of cre-
ating organized and supervised
clubs for those interested in fenc-
ing, judo, weightlifting, rugby,
and archery," stated Earl Riskey,
head of the I-M program.
This marks the first time that
such activities, have been organiz-
ed under University auspices. The
addition of the five new clubs, is
part of a move which began with
the creation of the skin-diving
club last month to expand the
University's already extensive ath-
letic program.
States Purpose
"The purpose of the new clubs
is to give guidance and help to
those individuals whose main in-
terest lies in one of these sports so
they can organize a permanent
club for. the activity here at the
University," remarked Riskey.
Previously, interested 'Individ-
uals had to organize their own
groups. This was a very difficult
process owing to the effort and
time needed.- Consequently, the,
P.E.M. department decided to su-
pervise the arduous task of ini-
tiating the various clubs thus
bringing the participants togeth-
. Under the present design of the
new program, the newly created
activities will be self-sustaining
with elected officers and faculty
"We would like to have these
clubs organized this year so they
would be firmly established by
next fall," commented Riskey.
"However, we are still hoping for

campus archery and fencing tour-'
naments this 'year."
The already existing skin-diving
club under the supervision of Ed
Slezak has a membership of 25
people and is still expanding and
newcomers from other sports. are
welcome to join. The new activi-
ties are open to any male student
at the University of Michigan.
Riskey emphasized that the pro-
posed clubs will be permanent and
will have regular times and places
for meetings. Although there
exists a rifle club under the aus-
pices of ROTC on campus, the
new clubs will be the first or-
ganized through the efforts of
the I-M prograip. The rugby
squad under the leadership of
Francie Gutman has been incor-
porated into the program in order
to facilitate the scheduling' and
planning of rugby meets with
other schools.
An important part of the new
program will be the arranging of
meets between other schools. The
PEM department has an advan-
tage over the individual in con-
tacting other campuses and this
will be of great importance to the
new system of clubs.
"Although six clubs are being
planned, groups in squash and
handball could be started If enough
interest is shown in these sports,"
said Riskey.
Anyone interested in squash,
handball, fencing, archery, judo,
skin-diving, weight-lifting, or rug-
by is urged to contact the sports
building and leave their name,
phone number, and sports activi-

Special to The Daily
CORVALLIS, Ore.-Not to be
outdone by Oklahoma State's
strong bid for the team title, the
miniature Michigan wrestling con-
tingent won all of its matches In
the first round of the NCAA
Jim Blaker, 147lbs., Don Cor-
riere, 157-lbs. and Dennis Fitz
gerald, 167-lbs., all outpointed
their opponents in their first
matches. Due to the time differ-
ence, the result of IKarl Fink's
match was not known.
Two from Oklahoma
Oklahoma State, co-favorite
along with Oklahoma, won the.
only three matches it had to get
off to a fast start in its bid to
capture the title. Oklahoma,
meanwhile, suffered a setback
when one of its wrestlers was de-
feated by Dominick Fatta of Pur-
due. Fatta finished -second to Bla-
ker in the Big Ten meet."
Blaker advanced to the second
round by downing Bill Barry' of
Washington State, 5-3. Corriere
easily defeated Jerry Ray of Iowa
