netted him consistent scores of eight and nine, led the
pack with 649.2 points. Batterman was next with 632,
while Northwestern's Howie Jaynes took third place
with 585.4 tallies. Wolverines T-Bone Martin and Alex
Canja fourt hand fifth respectively.-
Coach Matt Mann's mermen, tied at 23 markers with
the Columbus crew, came back from that to build up a
four point margin going into the< ~~~ -
next to last race of the night, the I

relay event. Sporting a crew of baton passers who were
undefeated until tonight, the Michigan quartet was rated
as odds-on favorites to cop the race, having already
defeated mile relay teams from Notre Dame, Indiana,
and Ohio State in previous meets this year.
But the Wolverine quartet never had a chance to-
night as Notre Dame roared to victory, gaining full ven-
geance for the defeat suffered at the

440 yard freestyle.
But Ohio State had not yet con-
ceded victory to the heavily-backed
Wolverines. Jack Ryan negotiated
the quarter-mile course in 4:54.8 to
take top honors, while Buckeye Steve
Grimm finished fourth. Michigan's
Jack Patten, off form for the first
time in his career, could do no better
than fifth in 5:03. And Wolverine
Walt Stewart was clocked in 5:01
for third place, Arnie Elchlepp of
Minnesota taking second by a hand.
Thus it was that the two aggrega-
tions entered the last relay tied up
tighter than a sailor's knot.
Strangely enough, it was neither a
Wolverine nor a Buckeye who won
the individual plaudits of the 1000
fans on hand.
Amundsen Double Winner
Bob Amundsen, who paced all qual-
ifiers in the 50 and 100 yard freestyle
events two nights ago, won going
away in the same races last night to
gain individual glory. The streaking
Wildcat was but three-tenths of a
second off the Big Ten record in the
50, the judges proclaiming him the
winner in 23.4. And in the 100, swim-
nting against a power-laden field,
Amunden led the pack by over four
yards, this time in 52.6.
And even Amundsen must share
some of his glory with plucky Dobby
Burton of Michigan. The Wolverine
leader finished second in both of the
Wildcat's events, beating out men
who were rated far better than he.
In the 50, Burton was clocked in 23.7,
the best of his career, and in the 100
he did 53.5.
Ohio State's Leitt, Iowa's Don
Wenstrom, and Minnesota's Ray
Hakomaki were the other three point-
winners in the shorter race. Gus
Sharemet disappointed Wolverine
fans as he paddled the century in
only 54.1 for fourth place.
Riedi Tlakes Second
In the 150 yard backstroke, favored
Dick iiedl of Michigan, in the time
of 1:39.1, found himself only second-
best at the finish. Buckeye Mark Fol-
lansbee came within one-tenth of
a second of tying the 1:36.8 Big Ten
standard, to blaze home an easy win-
ner. Ted Horlenko took fourth fo'
the Mannmen in 1:41.4, while Will
Ryan brought the third place mark-
ers to OhioState.
The Michigan crew, whom pre-'
meet dopesters had figured for seven
first places, was able to win only four.
Besides the freestyle relay, the Wol-
verines took the 220 yard freestyle,
the 200 yard breaststroke, and the
medley relay.
Patten 520 Winner
Jack Patten won as expected in
the 220, being caught in 2:14.8, with
Gopher Arnie Elchlepp pressing him
all the way. Patten's closing sprint
was too much for the Norseman to
And Jim Skinner, though hard-
pushed by Buckeye Emil Mamaliga,
successfully defended his breast-
stroke title. The Michigan ace but-
terflyed the distance in 2:27-.7 to edge
Mamaliga by a scant two yards.
Riedl, John Sharemet and Gus
Sharemet almost lost the medley to
Ohio State, but a frantic last lap
dash from behind by Gus gave a
three stroke victory to the Wolver-

hands of Michigan earlier in the sea-
son. Bob Ufer, best quarter-miler
in the country, made a desperate ef-
fort to catch the flying Irish on the
anchor leg but could i.ot make up
the deficit.
In the two mile race, the Wolver-
ines stayed on even terms with Indi-
ana, the eventual win±.er, almost all
the way. When Ufer and Hoosier
Campbell Kane started into the last
lap, they were side by side,' but the
long-legged Kane opened up on the
back stretch and pulled away to win
by 10 yards.
Michigan's best' chance for a first
place came in the four mile relay
when the Wolverines, Illinois, and
Notre Dame, battled neck and neck
throughout more than 39 of the 40
laps. John Ingersoll of Michigan,
Bob Rehberg of Illinois, and Les Con-
forti of Notre Dame started the last
lap in a virtual dead heat, but mid-
way on the home stretch Rehberg
turned on the heat and pulled slight-
ly away, winning by five yards.
Bob Wright, Buckeye hnirdle star,
again paced the field of timber-top-
pers, taking both hurdle events in
easy fashion. Michigan's Al Thomas
got a fourth place for the Wolverines
in the lows but was never a serious
contender for first place.
Michigan picked up another fourth
in the university medley relay which
Kane again won easily for Indiana.
Bob Segula got another 1/3 of a
point for the Wolverines with a
fourth place tie in the pole vault.

(Special to The Daily)
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., March 14.-
Michigan's determined hockey team
went all out in the first period here
tonight, but a title-bound Illini sex-
tet recovered from the initial shock
and turned on enough second period
heat to win 9-4 in a rough, tough
contest that brought Illinois its sec-
ond consecutive Big Ten crown.
Despite Wolverine wingman Max
Bahrych's two unassisted goals in the
opening Michigan flurry, the cool,
experienced Illinois outfit came back
in the first periodsto tie the score at
3-3. Then in the second period they
rifled the puck past luckless Hank
Loud, the Maize and Blue netminder,
six times, as Johnny Corson got the
Wolverines' lone tally.'
The surge which put Illinois on
top of the Big Ten heap again was
led by center Capt. Joe Lotzer and
wing Lou Ferranti who each slipped
home two goals. Ferranti also picked
up a goal in the first period to lead
his team in scoring with the coveted
The final period was scoreless as
the game'turned into a knockdown,
dragout affair in which defensemen
Johnny Gillis and Amo Bessone play-
ed a leading part. Gillis drew two
penalties as the Wolverines success-
fully turned back the last Illini on-
Capt. Paul Goldsmith who was a
surprise starter in this second game
of the series seemed to have fur-
nished an inspirational spark for the
embattled Michigan sextet as they
took an early lead, but the Heyliger-
coached squad from Champaign had
too much power for Lowrey's boys.

(Contimned from Page 1)
Matovina and heavyweight Frank
Ruggieri all completed perfect sea-
sons, none having lot a single match
throughout the regular season.
In capturing the lone Wolverine
Big Ten title Johnny Johnson came
through just as had been predicted
he would. Having attained to eligi-
bility for Varsity competition only
at the beginning of the second sem-
ester there was some trepidation that
he would be handicapped by a lack
of experience going up against this
cream of Western Conference com-
petition. But making full use of the
savage head attack which typifies
his wrestling, Johnny disposed of his
semifinal opponent earlier in the eve-
ning and then found himself pitted
against Purdue's Bob Britt in the
battle which was to decide the title.
Johnny Comes Through
Britt's record for the season was
equal to that of another undefeated'
Boilermaker. The heat was on
Johnson and he responded to the
fullest. In beautiful condition, he
maintained a sustained charging at-
tack of such fury that he offset his
opponent's advantage of experience
and brought the title contenders to
even terms.
For the first time bringing into
play the superb knowledge of leg-
wrestling art he had learned at Okla-
homa A&M two years ago, and using
this to supplement his punishing,
head attack Johnny soon nullified an
early takedown effected by his foe
and then immediately forged into the
lead with a sudden reversal. From
then on the battle was see-saw
through to the very final 10 seconds,
when the Wolverine grappler broke
his opponent's hold and the existing
score deadlock with a lightning like
reversal that give him the decision
and the glory of the victor by an 8-6
The saddest disappointment in the
Wolverine camp was due to Capt.
Jim Galles' failure to retain the 175
pound Conference title he had won
a year ago. On the basis of this
fact Jim had been slightly favored
to repeat, although it was recognized
that this weight division was to be
the most hotly contested one of the
entire eight. Capt. Johnny Roberts

new fields of conquest. And then
there was Harry Traster of Indiana,
who last year beat Jim Galles by one
point in a dual meet and then lost
to him by a single marker in the
Conference meet.
On the basis of their season records
this trio represented equal quantities

superior to that of his rivals and
