-Daily-Tom Gottlieb
Spitz takes lead in 100-freestyle

The Big Red Indiana Hoosier
swim team, as was expected, easily
rolled to their 55th straight dual
meet victory last night as they
downed Michigan, 78-45.
The Wolverines tought hard
throughout the meet and, after
the 200-yard butterfly, were only
down by a 43-32 margin. But the
Hoosiers splash2d to victory in
each of the last five events to
smash the Wolverines hopes for an
upset victory.
Michigan could only win three
events all evening, the 200-yard
butterfly and both diving events.
In the butterfly, Larry D a y
barely nosed out teammate Byron
MacDonald as they left three
Hoosiers wallowing in their wake.
After the meet, Michigan head
coach, Gus Stager said, "Our
butterflyers really looked good out
there. They really looked strong."
In th one-meter diving, Michi-
gan's Joe Crawford edged out
Gary James of Indiana by less
than a point. John Hamilton add-
ed a third for the Wolverines.
Dick Rydze completely domi-
nated the three-meter contest as
he turned in five consistent dives.
Freshman Steve Schenthal from
Louisiana, a former student of
Wolverine diving coach Dick Kim-
ball, took second for Michigan in
that event.
Indiana broke into an early 8-4
lead as they squeezed out a victory
in the opening event, the 400-yard
medley relay.
Mike Stamm opened up an early
lead in the backstroke leg for the
Big Red. Stu Isaac in the breast-
stroke and MacDonald in the but-
terfly closed the Indiana margin
to less than a body lehgth but,
superswimmer Mark Spitz out-
churned Michigan's freshman sen-
sation Chris Hansen over the last
100 yards to give Indiana a lead
they never relinquished.
The Hoosiers showed their depth
in the next event as they sat out
their two best distancemen, John
Kinsella and Santiago Esteva, in
the 1000-yard freestyle yet still
slammed the event.
Indiana mentor Dr. James Coun-

silman started Ulf Gustavsen and
Bill Baird who sped to a one-two
finish. Gustavsen came back later
in the meet to take first in the 500-
yard freestyle. In the 500, he nar-
rowly nosed out Indiana's Gary
Conelly in the closest event of the
evening. Both men were timed in
Kinsella, a double world record
holder, eased to victory in the 200-
yard freestyle in his second best
time of the year in that event. Es-
tava barely nosed out Ray McCul-
lough for the second spot.
In the 200-yard freestyle, Spitz
crawled to a slow but sure victory
dragging teammate Rich Anderson
in his wake. George Smith, a rela-
tive unknown among the herald
Hoosiers, followed with yet another
Indiana first as he edged Michi-
gan's Don Peterson in the 400-yard
Invitational Medley.
Michigan started their attempt
at a comeback as they slammed
both the three-meter diving and the
200-yard butterfly but then, the Big
Red started to roll.
Spitz cranked out his second win
of the evening in the 100-yard free-
style in' the leisurely time of 48.09.
McCullough narrowly missed the
upset of the evening as he finished
less than a second behind the pe-
destrian Spitz.
Mike Stamm followed with the
only record of the evening, a pool
mark of 1:56.70 in the 200-yard
backstroke. Stamm's time was still
over three seconds off his best time
of the year in that event. After the
meet, Counsilman was not satis-
fied with his star's performance.
"It was a poor time for him real-
ly," said Counsilman.

cumbing to four consecutive third
period goals and lost, 5-2.
The Wolverines, exhausted after
a day long drive through a heavy
Northern Michigan blizzard, never-
theless came out at the start of the
contest fired up.
The Wolverines refused to be
intimidated by a Tech squad which'
Michigan coach Al Renfrew called'
"perhaps the best squad since the
early 1960s," and when the Huskies
' scored an early first period goal,
the Wolverines quickly got it back.
The Tech goal was scored by a
Toronto twosome, Ken Tucker with
an assist from Graham Wise, at

ThWnat was all the scoring until the
start of the final frame, as the two
teams played a hard-checking de-
fensive contest. The second period
was marked by a number of power
play opportunities for both teams,
but neither squad could cash in.
Then, almost with the opening
face off of the third period, came
the Tech' onslaught. Tucker put the
Huskies into the lead with his sec-
ond goal, on assists from Gary
Crosby and Jim Grisdale.
The Wolverine struggled, but four
minutes later Tech scored again,
with Steve Coates getting the tally
on an assist from Wayne Pushie.
Mike Chestolowski took a stray

way in the frame on a shot by Wise
with assists from Tucker and Cros-
The Wolverines belatedly got
back into the scoring picture with
four minutes remaining on a goal
by Punch Cartier. Cartier was as-
sisted by captain Paul Gamsby,
who receivd a hooking penalty with
a minute and a half left to kill
whatever impossible dreams the
Wolverines may have had.
This was the second defeat the
Wolverines have suffered at the
hands of Tech this year, the other
one coming in last month's Great
Lakes Tournament, 7-2.
The Wolverines, still in the base-

ment of the Western Collegiate
Hockey Association, and the Hus-
kies, who strengthened their tena-
cious hold on first place, square off
again today at 3 p. m.
The contest, part of Houghton's
Winter Carnival, will be played for
the Governor's T r o p h y. Ann
Arbor's Bill Busch, a senior, will
give goalie Karl Bagnell a rest and
see his first varsity action in two
years. The last appearance for
Busch was a one-period substitute
for All America Jim McKeough

Liquorti wins 1000-yarter;
Palmer holds Hawaiian lead
By The Associated Press
0 NEW YORK - Marty Liquori, Villanova's multi-talented
Olympian, ran his Madison Square Garden winning streak to 12
straight last night, capturing the 1,000-yard run at the 52nd annual
Knights of Columbus Indoor Track Meet.
The Wildcat senior, considered one of America's top milers,j
dropped down in distance to capture the 1,000 over the 11-lap banked
elastroturf track for the third straight year, winning in 2:08.8, 1.2
seconds off his meet mark.

* HONOLULU-Arnold Palmer, muttering in anger after bogey-
ing the final hole, shot a three-under-par 69 and moved into a share
of the early second-round lead in the $200,000 Hawaiian Open Golf
Tournament yesterday.
Palmer had a 36-hole total of 136, eight under par for two trips
of the Waialae Country Club course. He was tied at that figure with
hard-hitting DeWitt Weaver who had a second round 68.

* ATLANTA-Rico Carty, the 1970 National League batting
champion whose career has been filled with injuries and illness, re-
turned to an Atlanta hospital yesterday for treatment of pleurisy.
Braves' officials said doctors report Carty probably will be hos-
pitalized only two days.
Doctors said the illness bears no relation to tuberculosis, which
sidelined Carty for the entire 1968 season.
Carty, who hit .368 last season, spent three weeks in the hos-
pital in December following surgery on broken bones in his knee.
That injury is expected to force Carty to miss some of the 1971
season.* . *
