ON THE MARK - Six Michigan swimmers take their mark awaiting the gun to start the 100-yard
individual medley in last night's Michigan Swim Gala. From left to right the swimmers are:
Henry Huffaker, Steve Thrasher, Tony Tashnick, Fred Wolf, Brook Plummer and Frank Babcock.

In the individual medley Wolf
trailed Michigan Captain Tony
Tashnick after the first two
strokes, the butterfly and back-
stroke but closed the narrow mar-
gin in the breaststroke and went
ahead eventually defeating Tash-
nick by two feet..
Heinrich came from Cincinnati
with instructions from his Coach
Tom Hartlan to go all out in the
440-yard freestyle, and the chunky
Californian using an unorthodox
stroke did just that as he splashed
to his record time.
After scoring easily in the 440,
Heinrich was forced to go all out
in the 220-yard freestyle in order
to defeat Indiana freshman John
Roethke, who's late rush carried
him past Michigan's Bill Darnton
and Dick Hanley, but failed to
reach Heinrich who triumphed by
Ron Clark, Big Ten 200-yard
breaststroke champion, was fully
extended to defeat another In-
diana freshman, Chet Jastramski
in the 220-yard breaststroke.
Clark Edged
Although able to handle the
field in this event, Clark was beat-
en by Nelson in the 100-yard
breaststroke by two feet.
In the spring board diving Wol-.
verine junior Bob Webster, who
suffered a serious head laceration
in an exhibition in the evening,
came from behind to defeat his
classmate Joe Gerlach.
Dumont swam a strong 440-
yard freestyle in the Heinrich-less
finals to defeat sophomore War-
ren Uhler by two yards in the
creditable time of 4:37.7.
The results of the meet indicate
continued success for Michigan
swimmers. The Wolverines won

nine of the ten events and none
of these were taken by seniors.
In a class break down the juniors
led the way with five firsts, five
seconds and four thirds. The
sophs were next with three wins,
a second and a third, followed by
the freshmen with two firsts and
two thirds. The seniors trailed
with four seconds and three third
place finishes.

Special to The Daily
jured captain Terry Miller watch-
ing helplessly from the bench,
Michigan's basketball team sagged
badly in the second half and lost,
85-63, to Butler here last night.
Miller, the team playmaker and
a consistent performer on offense
and defense, went out of the game
after only two minutes when his
right ankle was injured. He did
not get back in.
It was not immediately known
how long Miller will be out of ac-
tion. He had almost recovered
completely from an operation on
his right knee last spring.
Defense Crumbles.
Even with Miller sidelined early,
Michigan stuck fairly close until
about midway through the second
half. At that point, the Wolverine
defense crumbled and allowed the
Bulldogs to score repeatedly on
close-in shots.
Also contributing to the Michi-
gan collapse were numerous ball-
handling errors in the second
half. Michigan passed poorly and
at other times let Butler guards
Larry Ramey, Jim Barrack, and
Jerry Petty steal the ball away
for easy layups.
Michigan center Lovell Farris
fouled out with eight minutes left,
and this also weakened the Wol-
verines in the late stages.
But before the Wolverine disin-
tegration, it was anybody's ball

Scott Maentz, Farris, and guard
John Tidwell took up the slack.
Tidwell Scores 27
Maentz, rapidly becomring ac-
climated to the hardwood after
performing on the gridiron this
fall, dumped in 14 points. Farris,
playing a solid first half, scored
12 points before fouling out.
Tidwell, whose mediocre shoot-
ing contributed materially to
Michigan's first two losses of the
young season, made up for it last
night by netting 10 field goals and
seven out of seven free throws for
27 points, leading all scorers.
Meanwhile, the Bulldogs, win-
ning their third game against two
losses,.offset Michigan's three-
man scoring effort with balanced
scoring of their owri.
Leads Last-Half Surge
Ramey, the ball-hawking guard,
acumulated 19 points,- seven of
them on free shots. Forward Or-
ville Bose, held to four points in
the first half, paced Butler's last-
half surge with seven fielders for
a total of 18 points. This produc-
tion was matched by Butler's out-
standing center Ken Pennington.
Michigan, enjoying a slight
height advantage, picked off
slightly more rebounds than the
Besides the re-emergence of
Tidwell as a scorer, Michigan's

final quarter to stomp down the
Los Angeles Rams, 45-26.
The Rams played their finest if
losing game of a sad season after
coach Sid Gillman announced be-
fore the game that he was quit-
ting. The resignation was not un-
expected but the dramatic timing
did come as a surprise.

Whereas the crowd booed the
Rams against Green Bay last Sun-
day, they cheered them yesterday
as the local idols went into the
final period with a 26-24 lead.
The lead didn't last long.
Unitas Scored
Quarterback Johnny U n i t a s
passed for the third of his three
scoring strikes to put the Colts in
Then linebacker Dick Szyman-
ski intercepted a Billy Wade pass
deep in Ram territory and romped
15 yards for another touchdown.
To wrap up their second divi-
sion title, defensive back Carl Tas-
eff, scooped pup a Ram field goal
attempt that fell short, bobbled
it, and then tooK off for 99 yards
and a final touchdown.
Taseff's run equalled an NFL
record for such a play, estab-
lished in 1951 by ex-Ram Jerry
Williams against Green Bay. The
runback was a letdown for the
Rams' field goal kicker, Lou Mi-
He had kept the club in conten-
tion all this bright afternoon with
four out of four field goal tries
until this one fell short. The ball
was held on the 39.
