Big Ten team title, the 10th in Wolverine Coach Cliff Keen's 35-year
On Friday Michigan had virtually wrapped up the championshipj
by placing seven of its eight contestants in yesterday's finals. The
host team followed up with five victories and only two defeats (both
consolation matches) yesterday to finish with 65 team points.
Iowa Takes Second
Iowa finished, as expected, in second place with 50 points.
Michigan State totaled 37 for third. Northwestern, dead last two

group of 1,259 fellows from 355
universities and colleges in this
country and Canada. The fellow-

demic honors of this type.

cruit promising students for col-
lege teaching was established in
1945. This year there were 8,800
applicants representing 861 insti-.

Then followed Indiana, 24; Pur-

3; and Wisconsin, 0.
Michigan's Ambi Wilbanks, Fritz
Kellermann, Jim Blaker, and Den-
nis Fitzgerald all came through1
in the clutch yesterday to win
individual weight class champion-
Hoyles Places Third
Captain Mike Hoyles took third
in the 123-pound division by win-
ning his consolation match, and
Wolverines Dick Fronczak and'
Fred Olm lost close decisions in
their bids for consolation honors.
No Conference wrestling team
had won four weight class titles
since Michigan did it in 1955 (Max
Pearson, Andy Kau, Don Haney,'
Mike Rodriguez).
The winning 15-point margin
was the largest since Purdue's
great 1950 team won five weight
divisions and beat the second-
place squad by 17 points.
Curtis Also Wins
Michigan really had five cham-
pions in this year's meet. Guy
Curtis, a converted heavyweight,
won the 191-pound medal by beat-
ing Purdue's Steve Moriarty,.2-0.
Curtis' victory did not figure in
Michigan's team triumph, but only
enhanced it. Competition at 115
and 191 in this year's meet did
not count toward team standings
because of the lack of wrestlers
at these weights around the Con-
All of Michigan's finalists yes-
terday gave superlative perform-
ances against top-flight opposition.
They were aggressive and cool-
headed and "made their breaks."
Young Upset
'n the day's most dramatic
match, sophomore Ambi Wilbanks,
took down Michigan State's de-
fending titlist Norm Young with
only three seconds left to score
a 4-2 triumph.
Young was all set to take a 2-1;
decision on time advantage when
Wilbanks yanked his shoulders to
the mat just before the final
horn, thus earning two points for
the takedown and one for predica-
ment. M g

Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS -Michigan's track
team, fortified with tremendous
depth and sparked by sprinter
Tom Robinson, successfully de-
fended its Big Ten indoor title
here yesterday.
Coach Don Canham's Wolver-
ines placed in 13 of 15 events as
they rolled up a total of 631/3
points to runnerup Illinois' 45/3.
Other team scores in the 50th an-
nual Conference meej were: Mich-
igan State 31 9/10, Minnesota
23 8/15, Indiana 21 1/5, Iowa 20,
Northwestern 10 7/10, Ohio State
10, Purdue 5 and Wisconsin was
The challenging Illini came up
with six firsts to the Wolverines
four, but simply could not match
Michigan's great overall team
strength. A total of 13 different
trackmen won points for the Wol-
Double Winner
Heading the Wolverine honor
roll was the meet's only double
winner, Robinson, who successfully
defended his 60- and 300-yard
In the 60, the brilliant Bahaman
had to run hard all the way to
edge Indiana's sensational sopho-
more Eddie Miles. Robinson's
winning time of :06.1 equalled the
Big Ten record, of which he is al-
ready a co-holder, along with Sam
Stoller of Michigan and Jesse
Owens of Ohio State.
Just 20 minutes later, Robinson
had the French Field House crowd
roaring once again as he raced to
an easy victory in the 300. His
time of :30.4 was a tenth of a
second off the Big Ten record he
set last year.
Two More Champs
Michigan's two other individual
champions were sophomore Ben-
nie McRae in the 70-yard low
hurdles and Tony Seth in the 600-
yard run.
Running with the speed of a
scared rabbit and the rhythmic
grace of a young deer, McRae
literally flew over the low hurdles
in the brilliant time of :07.8. The
clocking tied the Big Ten record
held by Bob Wright of Ohio State,
Bill Porter of Northwestern and
Bob Mitchell of Illinois.
Teammate Dick Cephas got off
the starting blocks late, but passed
two men in the last 10 yards, to
finish second.
Aiming at the Big Ten record of
1:10.2 held by Dave Lean of Mich-
igan State, Seth fell just a tenth
of second short while winning a
grueling 600-yard race.
Stiff Pace
Seth, last year's Big Ten 880-
yard champion, set a stiff early
pace and was exhausted at the
end, as he lowered his Michigan
varsity record from 1:10.7 to
But all the glory, as well as all
the firsts, were not for Michigan.

team scoring but not subdued in,
spirit, camethrough with two ter-

Hare Race
Observers see the entry of Lieu-
tenant Governor John B. Swain-
son into the race for the Demo-
cratic gubernatorial nomination
as promising one of Michigan's
wildest primary races in years.
State, Secretary of State James
M. Hare is in the race and Swain-
son confirmed his entry last night
in Charlotte.
Except for minor disturbances
in 1954 and 1958, Democrats have
enjoyed trouble - free primaries
since 1948. Hare said he hopes the
primary fight will be clean, add-
ing that he has had assurances
from Swainson that this would be

tween them would strengthen

Wolverines Push
Last night, as in the first two
days of competition, it was out-
standing individual performances
coupled with depth and determin-
ation which paid off for the Wol-
verines and pushed them past
their old "unbreakable" record.
Spectacular performances by
Ron Clark, in the 200-yard
breaststroke, Bob Webster in
three-meter diving and Frank Le-
gacki in the 100-yard freestyle
brought Michigan three indi-
vidual titles. But it was perform-
ances of second and third place
finishers like Bill Darnton, Dave
Gillanders, Joe Gerlach and Carl
Woolley which pushed the Wol-
verines over the top..

In fact 16 Michigan men fin-
ished no worse than second in 15
of the carded events and placed
third in the remaining race, the
220-yard freestyle.
Hoosiers Fail
Indiana added four victories of
its own - Frank McKinney in
the 100-yard backstroke, Mike
Troy in the 100-yard freestyle,
Pete Sintz in the 220-yard free-
style and the 400-yard medley
team (McKinney, Troy, Gerry-
Miki and Frank Brunell).
The latter group tied them with
Michigan at eight individual vic-
tories apiece in the meet, but was
unable to match the Wolverine

D. Eisenhower's 15,560-mile South
American tour was an unqualified
success, United States officials said
They said the tour of Brazil,
Argentina, Chile and Uruguay
created good will and understand-
ing vital in settling specific prob-
lems in each country.
At the same time, they empha-
sized the tour was not tied in with
specific loan projects, but that an
increasing attitude of United
States cooperation in achieving
Latin American aspirations could
be expected.
Among the achievements of the
trip they. listed:,
1) Chile's overriding interest In
Latin American arms limitations,
proposed by Chilean President
Jorge Alessandri, was not tied to,
any request to the United States'
to cut its sale of small arms. The
United States pointed out, how-
ever, that the 1947 inter-American
treaty of reciprocal assistance per-
mits moves to limit arms.
2) Opportunity was provided for
Eisenhower's National Advisory
Council on InterAmerican Affairs
to come to direct grips with prob-
lems involved in improving United
States-Latin American relations.
3) Interest was shown by na-
tions visited in increasing trade
opportunities. They were particu-
larly concerned about United
States protectionism as applied to
raw materials they sell.

Calls Jazz Audiences Alike

Personnel Director
The 60-year-old trumpet player from New Orleans was tired from
his first of two evening performances at Hill Auditorium but he kept
up a steady line of chatter as autograph seekers, high school reporters
and well-wishers streamed in and out of his dressing room.
Louis Armstrong, who has entertained jazz fans for 47 years,
came to Ann Arbor last night, "to blow them notes.
"I just go to play where my manager sends me," he added.
World traveler Armstrong, who has been to practically every part
of the earth, confided that "cats are no different wherever we go,
they all like the big notes." Audiences don't really change, "Satchmo"
believes, "only some of the musicians went way out of the world.
People Don't Change
". ... and the people don't change much from eight to 80," the
casual jazz artist whispered. Proof of his statement followed im-
mediately as a nine-year-old critic ran into the dressing room, slapped
Louis on the back and said "you were pretty good tonight, Mr. Arm-
'strong." Smiling, the man who started playing along the Mississippi
near the turn of the century. thanked his youthful fan.
