ries between the California Gold-

Michigan Athletic Director H. O.
(Fritz) Crisler announced yester-
But don't hold your breath.
The games won't be played until
1965 and 1966..
The teams have met only twice
previously. In 1940, the Wolver-
ines, led by Tom Harmon, white-
washed California, 41-0.
The "roses that bloomed in the
snow" Michigan team downed the
Bears, 14-6, in the 1951 Rose Bowl
game in the only other encounter
between the two schools.

tinues Michigan's policy of meet-
ing sectional rivals in non-Con-
ference tilts.

sity competitors from Big Ten
schools, high school gymnasts and
past Olympic team members com-
peted. Top man-for the Wolverines
was Arno Lascari who placed in
five events.
Equal of Montpetit
Lascari, who appears to be the
equal of this year's Big Ten all-
around champion, Michigan Cap-
tain Richard Montpetit, won the
high bar. He took second place in
the parallel bars and third in all-
around. Lascari also placed in
both the sidehorse and still rings.
Redheaded sidehorseman Paul
Levy from Winnetka, Illinois, plac-
ed third in his event. Both Levy
and Lascari placed behind 1956
Olympic competitors, Joe Koty
and Jack Toth, Levy in the side-
horse and Lascari in all-around.
Two Seconds
In tumbling Phil Bolton finished
second. His performance xas
equalled by little Lewis Hyman
who came in second on the Tram-
poline. Both Hyman and Bolton
have made continual progress
since the beginning of the year.
Another stellar performer for
the Wolverines was Arnold Finn,
who placed second on the long-
horse and seventh in all-around.
He also finished well on the still

tance and Four Mile Relays which
present the same enigma to Can-
Defending Champs
Michigan is defending cham-
pion in both the Distance and
Four Mile Relays. Canham's even-
tual choice of entries will be in-
fluenced by developments later in
the week, such as weather, pre-
liminaries and other teams' plac-
Yale, Villanova, Harvard, Penn
State and Michigan are just a few
of the teams that will be strong
for the relays. Yale is defending
champion in two events, the Two
Mile and Sprint Medleys.
Villanova is seeking an unpre-
cedented seventh straight victory
in the Mile Relay. Abilene Chris-
tian will be a strong dark-horse
after a one-year absence from the
67th running of the Relays.
Locke, Bird Strong
"Both Ray Locke and Les Bird
will be strong," said Canham.
Locke excelled his previous best
indoor shotput heave last weekend
at the Ohio Relays, while Bird
is defending broadjump champion.
The field entrants include over
4,500 competitors from over 100
colleges and universities With
such a large field the possibility
of an upset is great. Canham em-
phasized that the crowded condi-
tions make for many "breaks."
Canham will probably not run

cellent sprinter and could bolster
a relay in the sprints and middle

Sophomore pole vaulter Steven
Overton is capable of a winning
performance in his event. Locke
could also win providing he gets
off a good toss.
Michigan's best hope for victory
is in the Four Mile Relay. Seniors
Dave Martin, Wally Schafer and
Jim Wyman will run with junior
Ergas Leps if Canham is able to
juggle successfully his men to
A disappointment to Canham is
the loss of 440-man Len Cercone,
who quit track to keep up his
studies and enter Law School.
Canham will take from ten to
twelve men with him to Philadel-
phia in an effort to duplicate the
two firsts, three seconds, fourth
and fifth that Michigan men ac-
complished last year.

Due to a scheduling mishap the
Michigan Open will lose some of
the Wolverine stars to the Penn
Relays, but making its debut and
possible only appearance will be
the freshman track squad.
"We expect to see some good
races here," revealed Coach Don
"We'll have 150 to 200 entries
aside from our own team. Western
Michigan will do the same thing
that we do-send the strongest
part of their team to the Penn Re-
lays or the Drake meet, and send
some here."
Few Records Broken
With captain Tom Robinson, Les
Bird, Bennie McRae, Dick Cephas,
Charles Aquino, Carter Reese, Er-
gas Leps, Jim Wyman, Dave Mar-
tin, Bryan Gibson, and Walt Scha-
fer at the Relays, there will be few
varsity records broken, but races
should be all the closer. Worse-
than-usual weather may also hurt
the competitors.

man team, which Canham believes
to be "about average for a Michi-

Only Meet
"This will probably be the only
real meet for the freshmen," stated
Assistant Coach Elmer Swanson,
who will be the director of the
meet. "They might compete in the
Michigan AAUJ championships, but
those often fall during finals."
Entered so far from the varsity

will be Rod Denhart in the pole
vault, Wallace Herrala in the shot
put, Charles Peltz in both hurdles,
Fred Langille- in the mile and two
mile, Marshall Dickerson in the
440 and 660, Frank Geist in the
880, and Dick Monk in the 1,000-

In addition both the varsity and
the freshmen will probably enter
relay teams.

won three firsts, three seconds,
three thirds and a tie for third,

Net Competition Helps Vogt
Earn Good Grades, Keep Fit

It rained yesterday . , . again,
but the downpour was greeted
with mixed emotions by the Mich-
igan baseball team.
After three and one-half in-
nings of play, the Wolverines
found themselves on the short end
of a 4-1 score, at the hands of
powerful Western Michigan.
The Broncos' lead was the re-
sult of a walk, two singles, and a
three-run circuit clout by catcher
Bud Dodge, off Wolverine lefty
Fritz Fisher, in the second in-
The lone Michigan tally came
in the first inning when the Wol-
verines slashed four singles, but
managed to snuff their own rally
when Jim Steckley and Barry

Marshall steamed into third base
-at the same time, from oppo-
site directions.
Coach Don Lund and his crew
may have been a little relieved
when the game was called in the
top of the fourth inning, but
they undoubtedly were a little
disappointed as well.
They now will have gone seven
days without playing a full game,
when they host Michigan State
on Friday.
A scheduled doubleheader with
Iowa was rained out last Satur-
day, so that the Wolverines have
played only one Conference game
so far-last Friday's win over
Minnesota, 5-3.


Varsity athletics mean more to
Michigan tennis player Bill Vogt
than just a way of getting a let-
ter. They are also a means of
promoting good grades, in addi-
tion to keeping physically fit.
A junior in dental school, Vogt
is currently the Wolverines' num-
ber-five singles man. Last year
he beat out Ken Mike for the spot
at the end of the dual meet sea-

son and went on to the Big Ten
finals at that position, His per-
formance paved the way for
Michigan's title conquest.
In his undergraduate years,
Vogt found athletics and schol-
astics to be a worthwhile combi-
nation in maintaining an admir-
able 3.8 average. "Playing tennis
helps me to relax. I always get
better grades in the spring when
I'm practicing because I get need-
ed exercise and then dig into my
studies with more vigor," he com-
Because of course conflicts in
his freshman year in dental school
Vogt missed varsity competition,
after earning his letter the sea-
son' before. Ie came back last
spring in the Big Ten tournament
and this year he is figured to be
a mainstay in the Wolverine line-
Living only two doors away
from the tennis courts in a muni-
cipal park, Vogt became interested
in the game at an early age. He
practiced for hours, hitting against
backboards to improve his strokes,
and later began to make the local
tennis circuit, competing in tour-
naments throughout the state.
In high school, he was captain
of the Saginaw Arthur Hill squad
and then moved on to ply his
trade at Michigan.
Tennis Coach Bill Murphy com-
mented, "Bill is a good, steady
player who makes few mistakes.
He has perfected his backcourt
game in the last year and can be
relied upon to help us consider-
ably throughout the season."
Being a veteran performer,
Vogt feels this year's team has

ably with winning Michigan

ference crown should come from
