Urbanesok Prepares for Big T'en Swim Mmeet

* 1

Michigan's track team came up
with several 'encouraging' per-
ormances against Michigan State
turday, but the times and
engths will have to be even bet-
r this weekend when the Wol-
erines open defense of their Con-
erence indoor title at Columbus.
This is because last winter's run-
erup and Michigan's perennial
ck rival, Illinois, has shown it-
If to be a team well capable of
ating the Wolverines.
At a meet this weekend, George
err of Illinois ran the 440 in
:47.9, Dave Bowers ran the mile
nder 4:10, Paul Foreman cleared
4' in the broad jump, and Del
Coleman ran the 60 in :06.2 and
on down the line. Taking note
of these times, Coach Don Can-
said, "Illinois will be tough.
e could very easily lose."
Good Performances
However, Canham may be just
looking at the situation pessi-
misticlly, for his squad came up
with a lot of good performances
the past Saturday, indicating
championship potential.
* Besides the frontline spectacular
performances of Tom Robinson in
the 60 and 300, Bennie McRae in
the two hurdle races, Dick Cephas
in the low hurdles and high jump
and, of course, Tony Seth's record
breaking 600-yard run, numerous
Wolverines came up with several'
,noteworthy if not spectacular per-
After being disqualified for two
false starts in the 440, Bryan Gib-+
son came back to finish second in
the 300 with a fine :31.1 clocking.
king up the slack in the 440
was John Twomey, who ran what
Canham called a 'smart' race to
finish second.
50' Plus
Bill Radford joined Michigan's
50' plus shotput club Saturday
night. He joins Ray Locke and

Terry Trevarthen as Michigan
hopes for points in the Confer-
ence shotput event.
Encouraging too were the :06.3
clockings posted by second place
John Gregg and third place Ceph-
as in the 60-yard dash. Len Cer-
cone's fast :49.8 leg in the mile
relay gives Canham depth in the
relay that he may need.
Perhaps the most encouraging
Michigan performance was turned-
in by two miler Dick Schwartz,
who bettered his best previous
time in this event by a full 10
seconds. Schwartz, who usually
waits until the end of the race to
make his bid, stayed with the
leaders all the way this time, and
would have won if not for a great
stretch drive on the part of Mich-
igan State captain Bob Lake.
Chances are the Wolverines will
need several all-out efforts, like
that of Schwartz's, if they are to
overcome the Illini this weekend.

John Urbanscok, Bill Darnton,
and Andy Morrow churned their
way up and down the first three
lanes of Varstiy Pool.
The electric timer on the far
wall was ticking off the seconds
and had reached the 4:00 mark
as the three men neared the 350-
yard mark of their 400-yard free-
style practice run.
A minute later the trio had com-
pleted the distance prescribed by
Coach Gus Stager and stood at the
edge of the pool relaxing, as best
they could, before the flickering
lights of the timer reached the
10-minute mark, signalling the
start of another 400-yard jaunt.
Fell Behind
Slowly, Urbanscok, swimming in
the lane nearest the wall, fell be-
hind the other two and remained
there as the three finished the
required distance.
Climbing from the pool to let
another swimmer take his place,
Urbanscok, tired and obviously not
in top condition, took a seat in the
stands and waited for his next
Later,'he went at it again, still
tired, but battling time to get into
good shape for the Big Ten and
NCAA championships.
Now, with only two days remain-
ing before the start of the Big
Ten championships it will be im-
possible for the Hungarian-born
junior to work himself in the form
that enabled him to take second
in the NCAA 1500 meters, and
third in the 440 and fourth in the
1500 meters in the Big Ten cham-
pionships last year.
Urbanscok, along with several

teammates on the Hungarian
swimming team, visited West Ger-
many in the winter of 1956 and
refused to return to their Com-
munist-controlled homeland. He
eventually came to the United
States, but was academically in-
eligible last semester.
Although Urbanscok has made
good progress in his three and a
half years in the United States he
still has some trouble with English
and he fell behind in his studies
last spring.,
During the fall term Urbanscok
spent most of his time on aca-
demics, with the result that he
regained eligibility, but lost the
condition which he needs for
championship competition.
Working Hard
Working hard since the begin-
ning of the new semester, last
month, he slowly started to come
around and although he has yet
to swim competitively, he feels
that in this week's Big Ten meet
he should be able to better the

time of 19:03, which he turned
in the same meet last year.
"I hope to be able to go about
19 minutes this week and I think
that by the Nationals (March 24-
26) I should be able to go as
well (18:36) as I did last year," he
said hopefully.
"I don't know what the compe-
tition will do or what I can do
in the 440, but I try my best," he
Urbanscok, known to his team-
mates as "Charlie Brown," could
give the Wolverines a tremendous
boost as they seek their third con-

secutive Big Ten and fourth con-
secutive NCAA championship.
Wide Open
The 1500 meters in both the Big
Ten and NCAA are relatively wide
open. Urbanscok himself is the
highest-placing returnee in both
meets, and could conceivably
threaten for the top spot in both
In the Big Ten meet Indiana will
probably provide the top competi-
tion in the 1500 meters, one of the
two finals to be held Thursday.
But which of their freestylers,
Fred Rounds, Tom Verth, Pete
Sintz or John Parks, the Hoosiers
will use is still in doubt.
Urbanscok's teammates Andy
Morrow, Bill Darnton, Tom Bech-
tel or Win Pendlton are expected
to challenge the Hoosiers in ttft

INCHES AHEAD-Michigan's Tony Seth hits the tape just a little
bit ahead of a Western Michigan runner in a meet held at Yost
Fieldhouse last winter. Seth showed he was in shape this winter

Seth To Enter Conference 600 Race
A fter Setting 'M' Varsity Record

It looks as if two of the finest
collegiate middle distance runners
in the country, Tony Seth of Mich-
igan and George Kerr of Illinois,
won't continue their colorful ri-
valry at the Big Ten indoor cham-
pionship meet this weekend at
After Seth cracked the Michi-
gan varsity record in the 600-yard
run against Michigan State Satur-
day night, Michigan Coach Don
Canham indicated that the British
Guiana junior will run that event
in the Conference meet.
Seth's time of 1:10.7 broke the
old mark of 1:11.4 set by Bob!
Ufer in 1943.
Double Duty
Meanwhile, the rumor from
Champaign is that Illinois Coach
Leo Johnson will run Kerr in both
the 440 and 880-yard events, in
order to garner the maximum
number of points from the Jama-
clan star.
However, there is a good chance
the two stars will be racing againstI
each other in the mile relay,
where they will probably anchor
their respective teams. Seth
clinched the anchor assignment

for the Wolverine team with a
brilliant finishing leg against the
Spartans Saturday.
The Wolverine junior held off
Michigan State's Willie Atter-
berry all the way and finished
with the sizzling time of :48 flat.
Last year, Seth and Kerr held
several spectacular duels in 880-
yard races, with a number of
record times resulting.
Ties Recordj
First in the Illinois - Michiganl
duel meet, Kerr edged Seth in an
exciting race that saw the Michi-
gan star tie the varsity 880-yard
record with a 1:52.4 clocking.
Two weeks later, Seth came
back to score his only victory
over the Illinois star, as of date.
It was a 1:55.5 clocking that gave
Seth the Big Ten indoor 880
crown. Since that time Seth has
not been able to beat the Illini
star but has come close on several
One of these was the Big Ten
outdoor championships where
Kerr ran a spectacular 1:50.1 to
break the Big Ten outdoor 880
Seth then chased Kerr to the

wire in the NCAA meet in June.
Kerr's winning time was 1:49.4,
while Seth's runner - up time of!
1:49.7 set a new Michigan varsity
outdoor record.
Third in Pan-Am
Representing British Guiana in
the Pan-American Games, Seth
duplicated his record breaking
time of 1:49.7, but only finished
third. Ahead of him were Torn
Murphy of the United States and
Kerr representing Jamacia.
Right now Seth, a soft-spoken
Economics major, is interested in;
winning that 600 race Saturday,
but after that he has other goals.
One is to take a crack at the
world 660-yard record, currently
held by Jack Yerman of Califor-
nia with a 1:17 time.
Seth posted a 1:17.3 last sum-!
mer and since the 660 is a newly
added event to the Big Ten out-
door program, he should have
plenty of opportunities to better
Yerman's time. His other chief;
goal is to hit the 1:47 plus mark
in the outdoor 880-yard race.
A time like that would place
him among the top finishers in
the 800-meters at the Olympic
Games this summer in Rome.
