.The rangy Gophers had difficulty
getting theirheavy artillery into ef-
fective use and& were held goalless
during the first five minutes of the
game. It was all Michigan until Go-
pher forward Jaros bucketed a long
one to break the ice for Minnesota.
Ajax followed with a free toss and
then there was no stopping the Go-
phers. Minnesota left the court at
halftime with a 22-16 advantage over
the Wolverines.
With Smith and Mattson bombard-
ing the Michigan basket alternate-
ly,, the Gophers boosted their lead
and jumped ahead by 11 points with
about 12 minutes of the final quarter
remaining.
Coach Dave MacMillen began sub-
stituting freely in his Gopher line-
up and the Wolverines automatically
came to life. Bob Shemky, /reserve
forward, dropped two field goals
through the basket and Mandler
bucketed another before the Go-
phers could stem the inspired up-
rising.
With Mattson and Smith back in
the lineup, the Gophers checked the
Wolverines and put the game on ice.
Michigan moves to Madison Mon-
day night to face the Wisconsin Bad-
gers who nosed out the tough North-
western Wildcats in a close battle,
49-46 tonight.
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan, Wol-
verine pilot, experimented with a
new combination against Minnesota,

Ohio State Trims Hawkeyes
As Illinois Trounces Chicago

CHICAGO, Jan. 17.-(P)-A bat-
tling Wisconsin team staved off
Northwestern's last minute rally at
Chicago Stadium tonight sending the
Wildcats to their second consecutive
Big Ten defeat, 49 to 46 and sending
the 13,289 fans on hand into a frenzy.
Basket for basket the Badgers
matched Northwestern's efforts until
they put on the clinching blow with
seconds remaining. Lanky Ray Pat-
terson got loose on a fast break for
the game's final score. The Wildcats
could do no more than throw a wild
floor length pass before the gun
sounded.
The crowd sensed a thrilling fin-
ish when Wisconsin held a 43 to 38
lead with three and a half minutes
remaining. Another one of Russ
Wendland's flashy one-hand shove
shots closed the margin to 43 to 42.
Henry Clason's long goal finally
put the Cats ahead, but Charles Ep-
person hit from the side for Wiscon-
sin. Wendland then repeated to give
Northwestern the lead again but Bob
.Sullivan hit a one-handed side shot
for the Badgers and Patterson fol-
lowed with the deciding goal.,
Hume Twins Set New
Field House Records
Bob and Ross Hume, the twin
cannonb~alls from Canonsburg, Pa.,
cut up thercinders at the Field
Hyouse yesterday afternoon during
the Michigan frosh_ squad time trials.
Ross bulleted around the indoor
cinder path three times and was
clocked at 1:24 flat for the 660-yard
dash, breaking the old record of
1:24.5 set last season by Johnny Rox-
borough.
Not to be outdone, Brother Bob
churned the cinders for five laps and
was timed in 2:37.9, eclipsing Ernie
Leonardi's old mark of 2:38.1

First In Four
Of Ten Events

Make Blanket Finish
In 100-Yard Free Style
By BUD HENDEL
(special to The Daily)
EAST LANSING, Jan. 17.-The
swimming might of Michigan in-
vaded the beautifully new Jenison
Field House pool here on the Michi-
gan State campus to completely dom-
inate a triangular meet with the
Spartans and Wayne University to-
night.
One national and two state cham-
pionships were billed on the list of
events, and Matt Mann's mermen.
swept through to a clean cut, undis-
puted victory in each of these races,
copping the National A.A.U. junior
medley relay crown as well as the
State A.A.U. 150 yard backstroke and
100 yard free style titles.
First to be decided were the titlists
in the national event, and it was the
only championship encounter of the
night in which the Wolverines re-
ceived any kind of a threat.
Senior Dick Riedl, swimming the
backstroke leg for the Maize and
Blue, jumped off to an early lead and
handed breaststroker Tommy Wil-
liams a six yard advantage, but the
butterfly star of Wayne, Victor Dene,
overtook Williams to give his free
style man, Ray Nivers, a two yard
lead over Michigan's Johnny Patten.
Then jolly John went to work and
although Nivers was tough, Patten
was tougher and when the race was
over Johnny touched out the Wayne
entry. The winning time was 3:04.5.
The next championship to be de-
cided was the State A.A.U, back-
stroke. But for all that, it may have
just as well been a practice session
in the Sports Building pool in Ann
Arbor, since the Varsity natators
made a clean sweep of first three
places, with Dick Reidl once again
starring. This time the senior took
the individual title, ifinishing just
ahead of teammates Ted Horlenko
and John Weise in the time of 1:41.4.
The other title race w adsa mere
duplication of the last one as far as
results are concerned. Once again
three Michigan men finished one, two
three-this time winning the State

B~uck eyes Win
COLUMBUS, o.. Jan. 17.-(P)-
Ohio State pulled its first Big Ten
victory out of the fire tonight, de-
feating Iowa, 54 to 52, on sophomore
Jimmie Sims' field goal in the last
30' seconds. It was Ohio's first win
in four Western Conference starts,
broke a six-game losing streak for
the Buckeyes and was Iowa's second
loss in five league games.
After trailing into the last eight
minutes of the game, the Buckeyes
came to life and spurted into a lead
but Iowa came back to go out in front
again with three minutes to go.
After that the lead changed three
times.
Max Gecowets, Ohio's pint-sized
guard, finally sank a free throw to
tie the count at 52-52 with 30 seconds
remaining. Immediately afterward,
Gecowets stole the ball from Milton
Kuhl, Iowa's six-foot, six-inch cen-
ter, dribbled the length of the floor
and passed to Sims, a third-string
forward, who dropped the ball
through for the winning point.

Illini Win Ag~ain
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.. Jan. 17.-E/)-P
Paced by big Andy Phillip who sank
four baskets and four free throws for
12 points, Illinois clung to its unde-
feated. leadership of the Big Ten
basketball race by defeating Chi-
cago 54 to 26 tonight. Although the
Illinois offense couldn't get started
for the first eight minutes, at which
point the score was tied at 4-4, the
leaders soon began to roll and piled
up a 29 to 9 margin by halftime.
Then Coach Douglas Mills removed
his regulars and used second, third
and fourth string men liberally the
rest of the way.
The victory was Illinois' fourth
straight in Conference play and Chi-
cago's fifth straight setback.
Greschke Wins Title
Mary Frances Greschke, '45A, add-
ed another to her long list of cham-
pionships yesterday as she captured
the Novice Women's title in the an-
nual Midwest skating meet at Chi-
cago. k

DOBBY BURTON GUS SHAREMET

A.A'.U. 100 yard free style crown.
Oficial king is Capt. Dobby Burton
who covered the distance in the com-
partively slow time of 54.8 to nose out
teammates Patten and Gus Share-
met. This was the race that was
supposed to provide the fireworks of
the evening, but Bill Prew, National
champ from Wayne, failed to put in:
an appearance and afford the Maize
and Blue stars any real competition
outside of themselves., Wayne did
enter Guy Lumsden, however, who
formerly held the National 50 yard
title, but the Michigan leader and
his teammates had little trouble in
taking him into camp.
But the Wolverines weren't im-
pressive in one event, and the same
three who ran away with the 100
yard duel were the ones who took it
easy here. Neither Burton, Patten
nor Sharemet were able to qualify
for the 50 yard free style handicap,
and Harold Hefernan, Spartan soph-
omore, won the finals in the time of

25.3. The fastest time for the dis-
tance, however, came in the second
qualifying heat when Bud Difloe, se-
nior star from Detroit's Southeastern
High School, did it in 23.7. Fresh-
man Mert Church was the only Wol-
verine natator to reach the finals,
where he finished third.
T-Bone Martin, Michigan's color-
ful diver, really proved himself a
crowdpleaser as he twisted his way
to 315.6 points and first place in the
low board fancy=diving contest. Sec-
ond to the Mann-coached ace was
teammate Lou Haughey who gar-
nered 244.2 markers. The flashy Mar-
tin had the spectators rimming the
pool in alternate flurries of thrills
and chills as he squirmed his way
through the air and to victory.
The only other two events in which
the Wolverines were entered were
the 100 yard breaststroke handicap
in which sophomore Dave Levy ffin-
ished second and the 220 yard hand-
icap where Church again qualified
for the finals.
