Coach Loken Publishes
'Complete Gymnastics'

Complete Book of Gymnastics." It
is currently selling in bookstores
around Ann Arbor and throughout
the nation. The 18 chapter work
has over 500 pictures and has been
out since the middle of August.
Loken was ably aided by Bob
Willoughby, a former gymnast =at
Michigan, and the two worked on
the book for three years in their
spare time.
"It sure was a great feeling of
relief when we finished it," said
Loken, "because the pressure of
finishing each chapter and even-
tually the book kept building up."
Prentice-Hall signed Loken to
a contract to write their book be-
cause they felt a definite need for
a publication of this type and
thought that a man of Loken's ex-
perience could do such a job.
The popular Michigan coach has
been connected with gymnastics
for a long time, having been Presi-
dent of the National Association
of Gymnastic Coaches after he left

graduate he was Big Ten and Na-
tional All - Around Champion in

However hockey is so fast that
even, the best of officials cannot
catch all of the violations and
consequently games often get
rough and the body contact be-
comes even rougher as tempers get
hot. There is no play stoppage ex-
cept for an infraction of the rules
and coaches often substitute "on
the fly."
This speed, contact and never
ending action is slowly drawing the
attention of the public and the
people are gradually beginning to
accept hockey as one of the great-
est sports in the world.
