Big Ten Tank Teams Pour Into Iowa City With Hopes Of Dethroning Michigan In Conference Swim Meet

an interesting tale of the high
school record of track Captain Don
It seems as thougf his Oak Park
squad was battling two other pow-
erful foes in a triangular meet. The
boys from dear old O.P. needed points
*. .: plenty of them . . .and with a
"do or die" spirit, Captain Don went
out to grab them.
First, he captured three first place
medals in his specialties, the high
jump, the broai jump and hurdles.
But still, things were far from
bright for OWP. They needed more,
so determined Canham ambled over
to the role vaulting pit and decided
to give it a try. The bar was rest-
ing on its standards, 11 feet from
the ground. It was a long way up
for a lanky and weary kid who had
never tried the event before that
Down the runway he tore. Into the
wooden slot he jammed the pole. Up
into the air flew Captain Don. The
bar was 11 feet high, but Canham's
sturdy frame stopped rising at seven
feet, soared under the bar like a
train racing through a tunnel and
flopped weakly into the sawdust be-
But this is a tale of success and na-
turally doesn't end here. On the very
next attempt, point-hungry Canham
sailed high over the bar to gain a
tie for first in the event and a thrill-
ing victory for dear old O.P.
The more you look at it, the more
you begin to think that Michigan
could use some of that "do or die"
stuff in the Conference champion-
ships this weekend.

MATT MANN comes up with an
idea to reduce the amount of div-
ing in a swimming meet in order
to make things move along fasterj

ting the number of dives from 10
to six and making them all optional
from either the high or low board

The mark was held until this year by

On defense, Heyliger will probably

Experts Like Indiana Trackmen,
But Wolverines MayUpset Dope
The experts have decreed that
Michigan will fail to win its eighth
consecutive Big Ten Indoor track
title tomorro w and Saturday a u
due-but they still have to convince
a determined crew of Wolverine cin-
dermen .
Virtually to a man the dopesters
have declared that the Conference
crown is due for a resizing and that
the powerful Indiana squad is the<
cutfit that will do the modeling. With
estimates ranging from a liberal 14
point margin to a bare 1% point
edge, the sideline mathematicians
have outdone each other in a last"
minute rush to clamber aboard the
Hoosier bandwagon. They have al-
most unanimously conceded that the
mighty Crimson squad, led by its
trio of versatile aces, Roy Cochranz
Campbell Kane and Archie Harris,
pack too much individual brilliance
for the Wolverines' all-around bal-
ance to overcome.
But likewise they have included.

dopesters always do. Pointing out
that Michigan can conceivably de-
fend its title successfully if several
of its question marks can convert
their potentialities into precious
points, they cite several Wolverines WES ALLEN

Jim Galies In,(
When the Michigan wrestling team
takes the mat in quest of the Big I
Ten championship this weekend at
Columbus, one of its main hopes will
be placed on the shoulders of sturdy
Jim Galles, 175-pound grappling star
who has just completed an unde-
feated dual meet season.
Galles started this year in the
light-heavyweight division and swept
through his first five matches, win-
ning four by decisions and another
by pinning Dick Trubpy, Northwest-
ern captain. He was then switched
to the unlimited division by Coach.
Cliff Keen, promptly won two bouts
by decision, and similarly won his
last match after returning to the
175-pound class.
But no matter how his opponents
came, big or small, short or tall,
they have found Galles a tough cus-
tomer. In the recent meet with Penn
State, the rugged junior was pitted
against JackKearns, a gigantic 230-
pounder. It was the last bout of the
match and the Wolverines needed al
fall to win the meet.
Galles applied all the wrestling
skill he knew in an effort to gain
the needed points and had his giant
opponent tied up at every move, but

- ben set back time and again by in-
Oeries and junior Al Thomas, who was
aso injured most of last season. If

consolation match to gain runnerup
Before the season swung into ac-
tion this year, Galles competed in the
Midwest AAU meet where he
again reached the semi-finals in the
175-pound division.
Galles is one of Keen's hardest
workers and is one of the best-liked
matmen on the squad. Right now,
his big aim in life is "to win that
Big Ten 175-pound championship."
