with a 92-enough to win most

Thompson came up with a 94 the

ine fans who had made the trip

up with a 92-point performance,
his best of the year, to assure
Michigan of the victory. The rest

Michigan's Jim Brown-was anti-
Actually, the entire meet had
served as a build-up to the final
event. Rich Montpetit, as is be-
coming his habit, led all competi-
tors with a pair of firstI places in
the side horse and still rings, a
second, and a tie for third.
Nevertheless, it was again the
performances of sophomores that
spelled the difference. There was
Jim Hynds' horizontal (high) bar
performance-good enough to edge
Montpetit by half a point for first
place. Or Gil Larose's second,
third, tie for third, and two fifths.
Or Lew Fenner's second on the
side horse.
Osterland Win's
The Wolverines' other first place
came on Osterland's steady, 92-
point performance on the tram-
poline. The Wolverine star had to
be good to edge MSU's Johnson
and Thompson by a half-point
and one and one-half points, re-
John Daniels showed why he
was runner-up in the Big Ten free
exercise race by opening the meet
with a 92 -point routine to win
the event easily and help get the
Spartans off to an early lead.

All in all, it was a meet of ifs.
If Osterland had scored only 91
in tumbling; if Carman had scored
only 91 instead of 92 on parallel
bars Michigan would have had two
more meet points in that event.
Or if Montpetit hadn't scored
79 in free exercise-an event in
which he usually gets close to 90
points. And much more second-,
guessing is possible.
Despite his performance in free
exercise, Montpetit still was far-
and-away the leader in all-events,
averaging 90 points even, for a 450
total. Larose was second with 436
points, while State's Gani Browsh
was a distant third with 4191/2.
Szypula Pleased,
Szypula was pleased with the
meet despite the loss. He noted
that "for the first time in a dual
meet, gymnastics became a real
competitive sport. Both sides could
say 'if only we had done this, or,
that,' but I think the pressure of
a close meet could explain little
slips by both teams. We have no

Inana Meet Lost in Spr s

-Daily-James Warneka
NEAR-PERFECT-That's the form shown by Michigan Gymnast
Rich Montpetit, shown above performing effortlessly on the still
rings, his favorite event, last night at MSU. The senior captain
compiled 93 out of 100 points to win the event.

Plagued with a disease fatal to
any hockey team catching it-the
failure to score-Michigan coach
Al Renfrew will try an old remedy
this weekend, the shakeup.
What has been Michigan's top
line all winter is no more, and for
that matter, neither are the se-
cond or third lines.
In an attempt to restore some
punch into the Wolverine lineup
Renfrew will team Captain Dale
MacDonald and Joe Lunghamer
with the slumping Red Berenson
as the number one unit.
Complete Change
Berenson's former linemates,
Larry Babcock and Al Hinnegan
will combine with either John Mc-
Gonigal or Tom Pendlebury as a
second unit, while Bill Kelly, Carl
White, and Pat Cushing will form
the third.
Besides Michigan's inability to
put the puck in the net, Renfrew
added that he hoped to obtain
better team balance through the
shifts. "Before we didn't have
enough strength on the third line,"
he said.
Need Goals
The major objective, however, is
that of instilling some, scoring
punch in the Wolverine lineup
before invading Houghton for the
crucial series with the Huskies this
Only four times this year have
the Wolverines been able to re-
lax. a little in the last period of
a game. Three times Colorado
College was the victim, the other
occasion came against Minnesota.
Not since Michigan beat Min-
nesota, 9-3, before the semester
I-M Indoor
Relays Set
The I-M indoor relays are
scheduled for Thursday, February
23 at Yost Field House between
4:00 and 5:30 p.m.
The meet is opento residence
halls, fraternities, and indepen-
dents. Four men from each team
run 220 yards.
The four fraternity and four,
residence hall teams with the best
times will run in the open track
meet Saturday night in which
Varsity trackmen also take part.
Entering teams may register at
the Field House. Teams will be
clocked two at a time. A total of
60 teams are expected to com-

break have the Wolverines really
exploded. Since then things have
been geeting' progressively worse.
Against Michigan State the Wol-
verines managed only six goals
in a split, losing 4-3, and winning
3-2. Even the 12 goals they picked
up against Colorado College could-
n't be classed as outstanding con-
sidering that Michigan Tech, a
team not particularly noted for
their prolific scoring, notched 21.
Season Low
Limited to three goals by Den-
ver, Michigan's scoring sagged to
a season low.
Thus the change of scenery!
Probably the biggest problem
facing Renfrew in preparing for
Michigan Tech, is how to pull
Berenson out of his slump. The
star center has gone five games
without. a goal, after averaging
nearly two a game for the first 17.
Not since the first game of the
home series with Minnesota, a
month ago, has he scored..
Now locked in a second place
tie with Minnesota following the
Gophers' weekend sweep from
Tech, Michigan needs to win all
of its remaining games to keep
alive its hopes of hosting a play-
off series. It goes without saying
that a resurgence of Berenson
would go a long way toward as-
suring those victories.
Even then the Wolverines might
not make it. Minnesota could take
the coveted position by beating
Colorado College and North Da-
kota in its remaining four games.

Because they play fewer games
than Michigan, the Gophers gain
or lose more percentagewise with
each game.
Reed Slated-
To- Replace;
appeared nearing a change in its
athle tic commissionership, with
Bill Reed likely to succeed K. L.
(Tug) Wilson.
The recommendation of Reed,
44, assistant commissioner since
1951, may come next week in
Champaign, Ill., where the annual.
Big Ten March meetings open
The change is based on the as-
sumption that the general faculty
plan in the conference of a 65-
year retirement age will apply to
Wilson. He will be 65 March 27.
Reed graduated from Michigan
in 1936 and first Joined the Big
Ten in 1939 when he organized

of absence during the war years,
Reed returned to the conference

Sig Eps, Theta Xi Move
To First Place Playoffs

With the bitter memory of the
humiliating 62-39 defeat at the
hands of Indiana still lingering,
Michigan's swimming team turns
to preparation for its defense of
its Big Ten, swimming title next
week in Columbus.
Needless to say, Michigan's main.
opposition will come from the
same Hoosiers who clobbered them
last Friday. And, needless to say,
Michigan will have more than
enough to keep it busy, if the
results last Friday are anywhere
near an accurate indication of
things to come,
The Wolverines were the victims
of a wholesale assault, on existing
Big Ten and NCAA records by the
fired up Indiana team.
To add salt to the wounds, In-
diana also took first places in
both the 50 and 100-yd. sprints,
which had been all but conceded
to Michigan before the meet.
In a calculated gamble, Stager
pulled Captain Frank Legacki out

Highlighting last night's I-M

Theta Xi advanced to the first

fraternity "A" action.
Defending "A" champions Sigma

victory over its strong opponents
Sigma Alpha Mu. Jack Rashleigh
led the victors with 14 points,
while the versatile forwards Bill
Peppo and Dennis Sofiak, hit for
10 and 11 points respectively. Art
Bartner of SAM, was the high
scorer, contributing 20 points and
15 rebounds. Ron Siegel aided the
futile cause with 9. points.

in either half and the tense final
minute of play decided which team
would go to the first place play-
offs. Ron Siegel pumped in a set
shot and Art Bartner a free throw
to bring the SAM squad within two
points of their opponents. With
one-half minute remaining, Bill
Peppo made a foul shot which
secured victory for the defending
champs in spite of Art Bartner's
successful jump shot five seconds
before the final buzzer..
Theta Xi clinched a berth in
the first place "A" playoffs by
whipping Delta Uplison 42-30, in
a bitterly fought battle. George
Mans of Theta Xi, controlling the
boards, and putting in 12 points,
can be given a great deal of credit
for, the victory. Also contributing
to the win, was the fine shooting
and ball handling of high scorer

Larry Pierce with 9. The aggres-
sive DU team was paced by Fritz
Fisher's 11 pOints.

of his specialty, the 50-yd. sprints,
to swim the anchor leg on the 400-1
yd. medley relay team. But In-
diana's record holding foursome
of Frank McKinney (backstroke),
Ken Nakagone (breaststroke),'
Mike Troy (butterfly), and Tom
Verth (freestyle) was just not to
be had, even with the additionof
Legacki. Although Michigan swam
a very creditable 3:41.6, Indiana
finished in 3:38.8.
In the 50, Indiana took first
and second and Dennis Floden of
Michigan third in a disputed
finish in which Jim Fitzgibbon
was declared the winner. The
winning time was :22.8 but Floden
was unofficially caught in :22.5.
In the 100, Legacki lost a lead of
over half a body length on Sintz
when he missed a turn.
First place finishes in the sprints
would have lowered the winning
margin to 56-45.
The rest of the races ran very
close to form. Bill Darnton swam
wel lin both the 220 and 44-0 yd
freestyle races, but not well
enough to beat Pete Sintz in the
220 or Alan Somers in the 440.
In the 440 Darnton bettered the
existing Big Ten mark in a losing
cause as Somers set an NCAA
mark of 4:23.7. In the 220 his
2:02.8 was the third fastest time
swam in the conference this year.
Clark Wins
The brightest spot in a dreary
Michigan evening came when Ron
Clark lowered his own NCAA re-
cord in the 200-yd. breaststroke
to 2:15.9.
As expected, Mike Troy held off
Dave Gillanders in the 200-yd.
butterful and Indiana swept the
200-yd. backstroke. Troy lowered
his NCAA record to 1.57.3 and in

the backstroke, Frank McKinney
bettered his Big Ten record with
Sophs Triumph
In the individual medley, Fied
Wolf of Michigan did 2:05.9, his
best of the year, but it wasn't
enough to catch Hoosier sopho-
mores John Roethke and Jastrem-
ski, who finally won in, 2:04.0.
Roethke was timed in 2:04.1. All
three times are well under the
listed Big Ten record of 2:06.5.
The Wolverines take on Ohio
State at Ann Arbor this Saturday
in their last competition before the
conference meet.

A letter ,from the Interfrater:i:ty
gCouncil resident:
Fraternity rush is a unique, educational, and enjoyable experience.;
As a new semester begins, many undergraduate men discover that;
they have already had a sufficient op portunity to observe and experience
campus living in the University Residence Halls. The Michigan fraternity
system now wishes to extend to each of you a most cordial invitation ;
to become acquainted with organized college life as it exists in our
Crespective chapter houses.
Registering for Rush creates no obligation on your part to pledge
but simply provides you with, an opportunity to view first-han4 the
system under which some 2,700 Michigan undergraduate men areliving.
f /
/ t Even for those of you who wish to join a fraternity at a future
// date or for those who 'do not receive a bid to the fraternity of your
choice, rushing provides an invaluable experience for any future contact
/ with the fraternity system.
i ~Fraternity afiliation is more than just a housing arrangement;' it
involves life-long obligation and privileges. T he Interfraternfty Council
does not ask each of you to pledge; we urge only that you ma iyour
own decision after you personally have judged Michigan fraternities.
Good luck in Rush!
