Title

By LLOYD GRAFF
A summit meeting takes place
Saturday, but there will be no
negotiation or, compromise. It's
strictly winner take all in this
get-together of superpowers.
The superpowers, the Michigan
and Iowa gymnastics teams, are
indisputably the best in the Big

this is it. It's armageddon in
stretch pants.
Iowa's best point gatherer is a
stubby little guy named Glenn
Gailis, who looks more like a
weightlifter than a gymnast. Ex-
tremely strong, ne overpowers ap-
paratus like the high bar or the
still rings.

Fred Sanders and John Hamilton,
have taken first place in every

having a three meet streak going.
But after free ex and tramp, the
first two events in the meet, the
going gets rougher. Gailis is great
on the high bar, so it will be up:
to Michigan's Alex Frecska, John
Cashman and Gary VanderVoort
to get the runnerup points.
"Frecska is determined to make
this the best meet of his career,"
says Loken. And this is the atti-
tude of the rest of the team also.<
Cliff Chilvers and Rich Blanton
"have been pointing toward beat-
ing Gailis in the rings all season,"
says Loken. Saturday will be the
payoff. Chilvers has made re-f
markable progress on the rings.
Just a sophomore, he came to
Michigan as an all-around man..
Loken decided to have him spe-
cialize on the rings, rather than '
knocking himself out in every
event. Chilvers has responded by
coming from the mediocre middle
eights to scores in the vicinity of
9.5, taking firsts in his last Threef
meets.

Last year, in an outdoor dual
meet at University Park, Pa., the
Wolverines had no trouble with
Penn State as they .won all but
three events. Two of these, the
javelin and 330-yard intermed-
iate hurdles, are not competed
indoors.
Michigan, too, had a fine
freshman team last year and now
as sophomores they are strength-
ening the varsity's fortunes for a
second straight conference indoor
championship. Heading the bar-
rage of newcomers is Jack Harvey,
who is consistently shot-putting

Roger Schmitt, the eventual Big
Ten indoor winner, was only

breaking 54 feet now, will give the
Wolverines added strength to-

Because of Cincinnati's size and
speed, or lack thereof, compared
to Michigan, Coach Gus Stager is
expected to go with swimmers
who give the team its depth, and
let his big guns rest.
Ohio State should prove to be
a little more of a threat, though.
Lasttyeaim they finished third in
the Big Tens. Ben Donaldson, a
senior freestyler and butterfly
artist, is one of the Buckeye's
better performers. He holds the"
varsity records in the 200- and
500-yard freestyle events in times
of 1:48.2 and 4:53.7, respectively.
Junior diver Randy Larsen will
be a tough competitor, having
proved himself in last year's NCAA
meet by placing third in the low
board event, and scoring a record
breaking 523.75 points to win the
three-meter title.
