Michigan's swim team will have
a new look when it meets Michi-
gan State Saturday afternoon in
Varsity Exhibition Pool in the first
dual meet of the second semester.
The new look will be provided
by four new men who were not
eligible to swim for the Wolverines
during the first term and are
now available, and are expected
to become an integral part of
Michigan's drive for the reten-
tion of its Big Ten and NCAA:
Championships.
Top Freestylers
The members of this new group,:
freestylers Carl Woolley, Andy
Morrow, Jim Kerr and diving star
Bob Webster, give Michigan a
scoring potential, which may be
decisive in both championship
meets.
The case of another possible
addition, junior freestyler John
Urbanscok, is still up in the air.
Ineligible last semester, Urbans-
cok's case has yet to be reviewed
by the eligibility committee of the
Board of Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics. No action is expected in
this matter until next week and'
his eligibility will be in doubt un-
til then.
The addition of Webster to the
Wolverine roster could be a key
factor in Michigan's bid for its
third straight Big Ten and fourth
consecutive NCAA championship.
Among Best
Ranked among the world's top
divers, Webster is considered a
definite threat for both conference
and national honors. With team-
mate Joe Gerlach, Webster gives
Michigan the nation's strongest
one-two diving punch.
Michigan's top challenger for
Big Ten and NCAA honors, In-
diana, is without divers and what-
ever paints Webster and his div-
ing teammates earn may be
decisive in what should be a set
of hotly contested meets.
Gerlach's and Webster's chief
competition for top honors will
come from Ohio State's Sam Hall

needed boost in the middle dis-
tance freestyle events.
As a sophomore he finished
second in the 440 and third in the
220 in Big Ten competition, while
finishing fifth in the NCAA 220
event.
All-Americans
Both Morrow and Woolley were
named on the College Swimming
Coaches Association All-American
team last year.
Kerr, the third freestyler added
to the squad, will add even further
depth to an already large list of
sprinters. A state high school
champion from Waukesha, Wis.
he is, however, virtually untested
in collegiate competition.
While Michigan figures to pro-
fit from the return of the afore-
mentioned swimmers they lost a
possible standout when freestyler
Karri Kaykho was declared aca-
demically ineligible.
Finnish Star
The Finnish Olympic star was
expected to help considerably in
both the 220 and 440-yard free-
style when he became a sopho-
more, but never gained his eligi-
bility as he failed a course last
term.
Rather than stay in school and
try to regain his eligibility next
year Kaykho left Ann Arbor yes-
terday for California preparatory
to returning to Finland.
"We could have used Kaykho,"
Wolverine Coach Gus Stager said,
"but he just seemed to lose in-
terest and never made grades."

Cincinnati Snaps Streak;
Wings Lose to Boston
eA

GRIMLY DETERMINED - Wolverine freestyler Andy Morrow
watches intently at a Michigan practice session in Varsity Pool.
Morrow, who regained his eligibility this smeester, is a welcome
addition to Coach Gus Stager's defending Big Ten and NCAA
champions. Morrow scored points in both meets last year.

By The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS - Cincinnati
Royals halted a 14-game National
Baskteball Association losing
streak with an 111-108 victory last
night over the Minneapolis Lakers.
Guard Arlie Bockhorn and the
irrepressible Jack Twyman saved
the Royals from equalling. the
League record for consecutive
losses. Bockhorn, hitting 13 of 19
field goals and meshing 5 of 6 free
throws, poured in 31 points. Twy-
man chipped in 27.
The hot shooting Bockhorn, how-
ever, surrendered high point hon-
ors to the Laker's Elgin Baylor
who collected 32.
Cincinnati almost blew it down
the stretch as the Lakers, led by
Baylor's 17-point fourth period,
whittled away what was once an
18-point Royals advantage at 98-
80.
* *
SYRACUSE - Dolph Schayes
scored 33 points last night to lead
the Syracuse Nationals to a 116-
109 victory over the New York
Knickerbockers.
The triumph, the Nats fourth in
a row, increased their lead over
the Knicks, the National Basket-

in the Big Ten Meet and both
Hall and USC's Gerry Tobian in
the NCAA. If the two Wolverines
are able to beat their opposition
Michigan's chances for retaining
their titles will be greatly en-
hanced.
Point Winners
Woolley, a senior, and Morrow,
a junior, were point winners in
last year's NCAA and Big Ten
championships, and Webster, who
becomes eligible for the first time,
finished third for the United
States in the Pan-American games
three meter diving competition.
Kerr, the other new man, is a

sophomore just acquiring his first
eligibility.
Primarily a sprinter, Woolley
finished fourth in the 50 - yard
freestyle in the NCAA meet last
March. He also finished sixth in
the 100 and fourth in the 50 in
Big Ten competition, while he also
swam a leg on the winning 400-
yard freestyle relay in each meet.
Although he swims mainly in
sprints Woolley has also competed
successfully in both the 220-yard
and 1500 meter freestyle events.
Morrow, who attended the Uni-
versity of Detroit last term, is ex-
pected to give Michigan a much

ball Association's Eastern Division
cellar-dwellers, to 101 games. It
was also Syracuse's seventh victory
over New York in eight games this
season.
PHILADELPHIA-The Philadel-
phia Warriors, minus injured Wilt
Chamberlain, last night silenced
St. Louis big guns, Bob Pettit and
Cliff Hagan, for a 139-120 National
Basketball Association victory
which snapped the Hawks' seven-
game winning streak.
Joe Graboski with 36 points and
Woody Sauldsberry with 28 led the
Warriors to victory. Chamberlain
was sidelined because of two teeth
he had extracted earlier.
BOSTON-Little Guy Gendron's
20th goal and Bob Armstrong en-
abled Boston to edge Detroit 3-2
last night in a sloppy National
Hockey League game.
Breaking with dazzling speed
down the middle, Gendron knocked
Charley Burns' high leading pass
into the goal with less than six
minutes to go in the game.
The score by the 160 pound
winger, who has not scored more
than 15 goals in any previous
Major League season, put the
Bruins ahead to stay 2-1. Arm-
strong added a long screen shot
while the Red Wings were short-
handed at 18:49 and it proved
vital because Detroit's Murray
Oliver contributed his second goal
of the night one minute from the
end.

Tidwell Tops Wolverine
Iasketballers in Scoring

John Tidwell still leads the
Wolverine basketball team in
scoring according to the latest
Michigan scoring statistics.
Tidwell, a smooth junior, who
has been used both as a guard and
as a forward by Coach Bill Perigo;
this winter, has compiled 336
points for a 19.8 average over 17 !
games. His average in the seven!
Big Ten games is 18.4 points per
game, good for seventh in Con-'
ference scoring.
Captain Terry Miller and Lov-
ell Farris are staging a two-man
war for the second place slot
among the Wolverines. Miller has
tossed in 249 points on 100 field;
goals and 49 free throws for a 14.6
average, while Farris has hit on

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - Two sophomores
and a spring - legged senior are
making it a three-way scrap for
the Big Ten basketball scoring
title.
Official Conference statistics
today showed sophomore Terry
Dischinger of Purdue still lead-
ing the race, but losing ground to
Michigan State's great rebounder,
Horace Walker, and another bril-'
Sliant sophomore, Jerry Lucas of
Ohio State.
Dischinger has slipped to a 28.1:
average, followed by Walker with
'26.0 and Lucas with 25.6. Nextl
closest contender is Minnesota's
Ron Johnson with 21.4.
Other leaders include Lance
Olson of Michigan State 19.9;
Willie Jones, Northwestern 19.0;
John Tidwell, Michigan 18.4; and
Walt Bellamy, Indiana 18.0.
Walker, described by Spartan
Mentor Forddy Anderson as "the
finest basketball player I have
ever coached," has averaged 19.4
rebounds through nine Conference
games.
Ohio State (8-0) is hustling'
towards new accuracy and scoring
records as the Buckeyes threaten
to become the first undefeated
champion in Big Ten play since
Illinois' whiz kids of 1943.
The Buckeyes are shooting an
amazing 49.8 per cent from the
floor and also pace the Confer-
ence in scoring with a 94-point
average. Northwestern, twice beat-
en by Ohio State, still is the
league's top defensive club with
an average yield of 69.7.

77 field goals and 62 free throws
for 216 points and a 12.7 average.
Held Down
Farris has been held down in
his scoring by the chore of hav-
ing to shoot over the biggest men
in the Conference, among them
Ohio State's Jerry Lucas, Indi-
ana's Walt Bellamy, and Purdue's
Terry Dischinger. Miller has
picked up most of his points on
long one-handed jump shots.
The rest of the squad trails
these three with Dick Meyer and
Jon Hall having the best averages
among the others with 7.4 and 7.0
averages respectively.
Following are the Wolverines'
statistics.
