BLOOMINGTON - Aided and abetted by the
redoubtable performance of Ray Gura, the Mich-
igan gymnasts defeated the G-men of Indiana
University 160.45-157.3 here last night. With the
victory, the Wolverine gymnasts finished the dual
meet season with a 7-2 record, having lost to only
to Minnesota and Iowa.
Indiana had promised to be an adversary of con-
siderable talent, especially on the rings, and the
prognastications proved accurate as the Hoosiers
demonstrated themselves lords of the rings tri-
umphing in the ring competition 27.75-27.1 as well
as proving superior on the high bar 26.35-26.05.
Nevertheless, the Wolverines dominated all
other phases of the meet as they amassed a good
share of the final margin of victory in the floor
exercises and the vaulting competition.

By any standards, however, the stellar figure
of the evening was Michigan's Gura. Of Gura's
exploits, Coach Newt Loken said, "It was his final
dual meet and he simply did a great job."
Loken's comments seemed well justified. Gura
turned in the highest point total of the seas n
(53.9) and led the Michigan contingent in the floor
exercises, the vaulting contests, and the battles
on the high bar. Additionally, his performances on
the rings and bars helped to cement the Wlverine
Other Wolverine gymnasts who contributed to
the Michigan victory were Ward Black and Terry
Boys whose point totals in the floor exercises
(9.05 and 9.0 respectively) enabled Michigan to
batter the Hoosiers in this event 27.15-25.5. Bob
Johnson gave the finest Michigan performance on
the bars with a score of 9.2. Gene Coyle passed the
Hoosiers with a 50.85 score.
