By BOB'LEDERER
Although his team has been
ranked at the fore in most pre-
season basketball polls save for
yesterday's prediction by a na-
tional weekly sports magazine,
Coach Dave Strack has expressed
concern over the lack of a "take-
charge" ball-player.
Bob Cantrell, last year's cap-
tain, has graduated and finding
an adequate replacement is one of
Strack's major chores this season.
Cantrell was the team leader and
playmaker, and, although 5'10"
and 165 pounds, Strack is quick
to recognize the absence of a
sparkplug after Tuesday's Ball
State opener.
Thompson to Start
Strack considered the likes of
6'4" senior George Pomey, 6'4"
junior John Clawson, 5'11" senior
Tom Ludwig, and 6' junior John
Thompson before deciding that
the latter was to get the first
shot at the starting slot. Thomp-
son managed to score only three

Stager Rests Swimming Hopes

HACK TISON

than Wolverine-leader Buntin.
With Tison leading the way, Bu-
bas has predicted his Blue Devils
will rise to the top of the bas-
ketball ranks. But with the exhi-
bition schedule lined "with weak
teams; Michigan will provide one
of the few stern tests until the
Atlantic Coast tournament 'early
in March-and if they win the
tourney again-the NCAA later
the same month.

By JIM LaSOVAGE
"They're the key to the whole
ueam," said swimming coach Au-
gustus P. (Gus) Stager of his cur-
rent flock of sophomores. "If they
don't come through we won't have
a thing."
Stager, the 1960 U. S. Olympic
coach, may have been underrat-
ing his upperclassmen somewhat,
but he has good reason to praise
the newcomers.
Among them are names which
will likely be repeated many times
over when the season begins.
Probably the biggest name is Carl
Robie. Robie took a silver medal
home 'from Tokyo where he fin-
ished second in the 1964 Olym-
pics in his specialty, the 200-me-
ter butterfly. In the Pan American
games, Robie won the butterfly
event beating' all 'challengers in
the Western Hemisphere.
Bright Prospects
Bill Groft is another bright
prospect. In last year's varsity-
freshman meet he gathered in a
first and a second in the 50- and
100-yard freestyle events, respec-,
tively. Another freestyle expert,
Howard Brundage, finished third
in the 200-yard race and was on
the winning 400-yard freestyle re-
lay team as was Groft.
Tom Williams and Paul Scheer-

er are breaststrokers who, accord-
ing to Stager, "are making good
progress." Against the varsity last
year Scheerer and Williams fin-
ished first and third in the 200-
yard breaststroke.
An all-around swimmer whom
Stager has high hopes for is John
Vry. Vry swam to a victory against
his upperclass teammates last

year in the 200-yard individual
medley.
Strengthening the backstroke
department will be Russ Kingery,
who was barely touched out in
last season's varsity - freshman
duel. He also swam on the win-
ning medley relay team along
with Scheerer, Robie, and Bill
Keswick.
Stager is also expecting big
things from Tom Schwarten, a
strong freestyler. Schwarten swam
on the relay team with Brundage,
Keswick, and Groft.
But to give all the credit to the
sophs would be a gross injustice
to the varsity's returning letter-
men. Captain Ed Bartsch, a sen-
ior, has been a consistent winner
for the Wolverines. He placed first
in the backstroke event in the
Pan Am games, second in both
the 100- and 200-yard backstrokes
in the Big Ten championships,
and third and fifth in the same
two events in the NCAA finals last
March.
Geoff D'Atri proved his worth
as a sophomore last year. In the
Big Ten meet, he finished fourth
in the 400-yard individual medley.
He pulled in a lot of dual meet
points for the tankers, and Stager
is hoping for a better season this
year.
Distance Man
One of the most valuable re-
turning lettermen is junior Bill
Farley. Proving his value as one
of the top distance swimmers in
the nation, Farley won two firsts
in the Big Tens (500- and 1650-
yard freestyle races) and took a
third in the 200-yard variation.
In the 1650-yard event in the
NCAA finals, Farley finished sec-
ond to Southern Cal's Roy Saari.
Racing in the freestyle sprints
will be Bob Hoag, a junior who
was ineligible last year. "With
him," Stager says, "we could have
