THE MICHIGAN DAILY SUNDAY,

Defeat

Gillanders Sets Record in Butterfly;
Wolf Scores Double Victory for 'M'

By HAL APPLEBAUM
Michigan, tuning up for next
week's showdown battle with In-
diana, gained its 32nd consecutive
dual swim meet victory with a 62-
43 victory over intrastate rival
Michigan State yesterday after-
noon in Varsity Exhibition Pool.
The Wolverines' Dave dil-
landers set the only record of the
afternoon as he covered the 200-
yard butterfly course in 2:02.9 to
erase the pool record of 2:03.5
established last year by Michigan
Captain Tony Tashnigk.
Michigan coach Gus Stager used
a lineup which saw a number of
his best men withheld from com-
petition or swimming only exhibi-
tion. Nevertheless the Wolverines

were never in danger of losing to
the Spartans.
The meet's only double winner
was Michigan's Fred Wolf, who
captured both the 200-yard indi-
vidual medley and the 200-yard
backstroke.
Disposes of Early Challenge
In the individual medley Wolf
disposed of an early challenge
from State's Dave Diget and in-
creased his lead as the race went
on. He was, however, challenged
again in the last 25 yards by
teammate Chuck Babcock, who
passed the fast fading Diget.
The backstroke was a different
matter as Wolf and teammates
Alex Gaxiola and John Smith,
swimming for exhibition, quickly
moved ahead of their opponents
and engaged in a stroke for stroke
battle throughout the race. Nev-
er more than two feet apart
throughout, the three hit the fin-
ish line in a virtual deadlock with
Wolf, receiving the judges' nod
for first place. His time was 2:09.5
Other Michigan winners were
Dennis Floden, 50-yard freestyle,
Bob Webster, diving, Frank Le-

-I- -

gacki, 100-yard freestyle and Win
Pendleton, 400-yd. freestyle.
Spartans Win Four Events
The Spartans accounted for the
400-yard freestyle and medley 'e-
lays, the 220-yard freestyle and
the 200-yard breaststroke.
Legacki's victory in the 100-yard
freestyle and Webster, diving de-
but, provided the 1550 fans on
hand with the day's most ex-
citing action.
With a characteristic burst of
speed, Legacki led the field at the
end of 25 yards and widened his
margin to about five feet at the
halfway point but, Michigan's
Carl Wooley, swimming competi-
tively for the first time this sea-
son, unleashed a furious stretch
drive that carried him -to Within
inches of Legacki, who held on for
the victory.
Webster Sparkles
Webster, performing for the
first time in varsity competition,
put on a spectacular exhibition on
the three meter board. A superb
execution of the difficult cutaway
two-and-one-half somersault on
which he received judge's awards
of 8, 8 and 81/g helped Webster
amass a total. of 282.3 points to
defeat teammate ' Francis by
16 points.
Though Floden, Brackett, vic-
tor in the 220-yard freestyle, and
Pendleton defeated their respect-
ive fields their winning times were
bettered by Wolverines swimming
for exhibition. ,
Michigan's Jim Kerr, with a
time of :22.7 for 50 yards free-
style and Bill Darnton, with clock-
ing of 2:06.7 for 220-yards and
4:33.7 for 440-yards freestyle, con-
siderably bettered the winning
times in these events.

Tidwell Leads All Scorers;
Jones Paces Wildcat Attack

From the Dean of Men:

Fraternities lave long been an important and integral part of our University
have provided strong leadership in all areas of student activities and interests.

community and

The fraternity chapter, as a group organization, promotes the fundamental purposes of edu-
cation, encourages its members to achieve excellence in scholarship and adds its incentives and recog-
nitions for intellectual achievement to those provided by the University. The social and educational
values inherent-in fraternity life are many and varied, and contribute materially to the individual
development of those who participate as members.
In these days of advancing enrollments, the benefits of small living groups become increasingly
apparent and valuable. I join the Interfraternity Council in inviting you to become familiar with the
fraternity system at Michigan and I recommend that you take advantage of the ensuing spring rush
to acquaint yourself with the advantages and opportunities offered by the fraternity chapters on
our campus.

Tidwell, who carried an' 18.4
Conference average into the game,
finished as high man for both
teams with 28, 17 of fwhich came
in the second half. Miller, with
18, and Farris, with 15, were oth-
er Wolverines to hit double figures.
Northwestern had better scoring
balance, with Jones (24) leading
four players in double figures, He
was followed by 6-7 forward Char-
lie Brandt (19), Cacciatore (17),
and Campbell (12).
The loss was Michigan's second
to the Wildcats this season. Ear-
lier they dropped a 59-52 decision
to the 'Cats in a Christmas tour-
nament game at Los Angeles.
