:agers Seek To Break Butler Jinx'

Swimming Meet Here
Uses New Timer Device


Special To The Daily
DIANAPOLIS - The sting of
year s defeat on a disputed

goal-tending ruling remains
Michigan's Wolverines as
meet Butler here tonight.


It has been three years since
Michigan has been able to beat
the Bulldogs and it's not since
1949 that the Blue has overcome
Butler's home-court whammy.
"They're much stronger at
home," coach Dave Strack com-
mented. "They'll certainly give us
a strong game."
So far this year the Bulldogs

haven't won a game in four out-
ings, but have been pitted against
Illinois, Ohio State, UCLA and
Southern California. They lost by
a respectable seven to the Buck-
eyes at St. John arena and fell to
Illinois by six in their only home'
"We haven't met a team as
tough as any of the ones they've
been beaten by," Strack comment-
ed in warding off the overconfi-
dence which might result from the
three overpowering wins his team
has rolled up.
Butler has lost three of last
year's starters, including Gerry

Williams who fired the shot which
Bill Buntin reached up to pick off
with two seconds remaining in last
year's game. The two points
awarded to Williams were the de-
ciding pair in the 70-69 contest.
Also gone is Butler's all-time lead-
ing scorer, Tom Bowman, who
scored 24 last year against Mich-
Test for Buntin
But big Jeff Blue remains and
will give Buntin his first real test
of the season. Blue is 6'6" and led
the Bulldogs in scoring and re-
bounding last year.
"Blue is one of the best centers

in the country. He's a real fine
ball player," Strack said, but was
quick to add "but so's Bill!"
Butler's well-known coach Tony
Hinkle, a veteran of 35 seasons,
is also the head football coach at
the 4300-student university, and
his basketball teams are known
for slow starts and quick pickups.
'M' Favored
The Wolverines go into the
game as favorites in spite of the
frantic Hoosiers who will jam into
the 15,000 seat Butler Field House
for the game. By virtue of their
three impressive wins against
three unimpressive teams, Strack's
men have moved up to fifth in the
UPI poll and seventh in the AP
Thus far, the depth in scoring
has been the major feature of the
Wolverines' attack. Sophomore
star Cazzie Russell leads the scor-
ing with a 19.3 point average.
Buntin has 18.5, while sophomore
Jim Myers boasts a 16.0 average.
Buntin Leads Rebounders
Oliver Darden has hit for eight
points per game and the two vet-
eran forwards, Larry Tregoning

"Overall, I was pretty satisfied
with most of them," said coach
Gus Stager, yesterday, of his boys'
performance at last Saturday's
Michigan College Swimming and
Diving Meet.
The meet, a rather experimental
affair with visitors from Flint
Community JC, Western Michi-
gan, Michigan State, Henry Ford
Comrmunity College, anid Jackson
JC, took five hours to run. Stager
stated that extra time was con-
sumed in resetting the electrical
timing system which Michigan is
promoting. The meet was held
partly for publicity for the device
which can accurately time swim-
mers to thousandths of a second.
Too Long
More time was used in the run-
ning of two to six heats for each
event rather than just one heat of
the fastest qualifiers. Stager com-
Loyola Wins
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-Loyola, the nation's
No. 1 basketball team, came from
behind to tie Detroit and went on
to win in overtime 113-108 last
night at Chicago Stadium.
Trailing 95-89 with two min-
utes remaining in regulation time,
the Ramblers, sparked by Ron
Miller pulled even at 98-98 as
the buzzer sounded.
The clinching basket, forcing
the contest into overtime, was
tossed in by Miller. Only seconds
before, Miller connected on anoth-
er jumper as Detroit faltered.
In the overtime, Tom Markey
stole a pass and scored on a lay
up to give the Ramblers the lead
for good, 108-106. After that Les
Hunter sank two quick baskets to
put the game out of reach with
one minute remaining.

Tonight's basketball g a m e
between t h e Wolverines of
Michigan and the Butler Bull-
dogs will be broadcast over
WAAM radio, 1600 on the dial.
Starting time of the game is
9:15 p.m., as the game will be
played at Butler in the Central
time zone.
and George Pomey 7.3. Buntin,
last year's leading Big Ten re-
bounder, has 23 in the two games
he's been in this year to lead all
him teammates.
An interesting sidelight to to-
night's contest is the return of
Michigan's captain Bob Cantrell
to the arena at Butler. Cantrell
captained the East Chicago (Ind.)
Washington team to the state
championship four years ago held
in the same field house. The
scrappy guard has recovered fully
from an attack of the 24-hour flu

mented that it was worthwhile in
that swimmers were matched
against competitors of their own
caliber. In this way he felt that
the boys were gaining something
from swimming, whereas if the
slower swimmers were mismatched
with faster ones, the meet would
have no more value than a time
trial. The smaller junior colleges
can not hope to equal Big Ten
schools, though, Stager said. "One
of the biggest moments came
when a Jackson JC boy came in
sixth in the finals. His coach was
very happy. it made the meet
Freshmen Good
Stager was pleased especially
with freshmen John Vry, Tommy
Williams and Carl Robie, all of
whom made fine showings. He
said Paul Sheerer, who lost a first
place finish in the 100-yard
breaststroke because of an im-
proper turn, would learn a lesson
from his mistake, so he was sat-
isfied. However, he thought that
Russ Kingery could have done
better in both the 100- and 200-
yard backstroke races. Stager said
he should have swum the first
half of each race faster, because
he could not finish as fast as Ed
Bartsch, the varsity man who won
both events. "He swam to win. It
was a real smart race," said Stager
of Bartsch, who played coy in
keeping just even with Kingery,
and then turning to sprinting
speed to go home for the win.
The coach feels that with prac-
tice and experience the freshmen
should develop into a good team.
.B-Ball Tickets
The box office in the Athletic
Building will open at 8 a.m.
this Friday, in order to issue
tickets for this Saturday's
basketball game against West-
ern Michigan. The game starts
at 8 p.m.
He was watching the boys who
finished behind with as much in-
terest as the freshmen who swam
in better times, and is very opti-
mistic about the future.
Hoosiers Next
Of his varsity swimmers, Stager
was quite pleased with Geoff
D'Atri, Ed Bartsch, Tom Dudley,
Bill Farley and Bill Spann among
others. He sees much improvement
in D'Atri, who placed first in the
200-yard individual medley.
Stager said that about 50 per
cent of his swimmers had slight
colds or other minor illnesses, but
it didn't make too much difference
in the outcome. The next meet will
be after vacation at Indiana, one
of the Big Ten swimming powers,
on Jan. 18.
