Squad Downs
Gophiers, NU
Ten meet and University of Wis-
consin annex records were shat-
tered and two others equalled as
Wisconsin's unbeaten indoor track
team defeated Minnesota and
Northwestern in a triangular
meet today.
The Badgers compiled 61 points.
The Gophers followed with 5501%2
and the Wildcats with 27%.
Don Gehrmann, Wisconsin, and
Bill Porter, of Northwestern, each
accounted for two first places.
The Badger sophomore won the
one mile run and the 880, regis-
tering new marks in both events,
while the Wildcat hurdler won
his specialties.

(Continued from Page 1)
In four games with Cowles'
club McInttyre has netted only
36 points, a mark far below his
league average, which up until
tonight's clash was 22.5 points
per game.
The Wolverines completely
dominated both backboards, espe-
cially in the first half when Go-
pher Mentor Dave MacMillan
started a quint which was short
on height and long- in speed in
an effort to outrun the Wolver-
ines. That strategy played right
into Cowles' guiding hand, who
now holds a 3-1 advantage in his
personal duels with McMillan.
Actually the final score doesn't
tell the true story of the contest.
With a little better than four
minutes 'remaining of the game,
Michigan was ahead 53-29, and
the Gophers were going from bad'
to worse in a desperate effort to
salvage something-certainly not
the ball-game-but at least what'
face they had left in front of the
home fans at this point.
So with the game in the pro-
verbial bag,hCowles started his
reserves and McMillan followed
suit. The result was a barrage
of Minnesota long shots that
brought the final total up to a
more respectable margin.
Minnesota never was out in
front, although the home club
did tie the scoe once at 2-2 if
that's anything for the record
books. Suprunowicz opened the
scoring by stealing the ball and
dribbling in for a set-up. Joe Hol-
ewa then hit from the side to tie
it up. From there Michigan really
began to roll.
The six-minute mark found
the score 13-6 as Bill Roberts
out-maneuvered McIntyre to
cage a hookshot. A bit disgusted
with this MacMillan jerked Big
Jim and sent in Bill Appenzel-
ler to give the Gophers more
But with the Big Boy on the
bench for six minutes the Wol-
verines made even better use of
their height advantage to outscore
the home team 13-6 for a 28-12
lead with six minutes remaining
in the first half. Cowles also had

his pivotman Roberts on the side-
lines during this period.
McIntyre helped a little as the'
Gophers fought back to a 12 point
deficit at half time, 31-19.
Any half-starved hopes the al-
ready peeved home crowd had of I
seeing their favorites stage a last-
half comeback wa-s snuffed out in
the first four minutes of playj
even though neither team scored
a point. The Gophers unloosed
what seemed like a million shots,
but saw them roll off the rim,
hop in, out, and just plain miss
to the accompaniment of loud
groans from the fans.
McIntosh then figured he had
gone long enough. so he drove
in for goal and Roberts con-
nected from far out. Bud Grant,
who played his usual good game
for a losing cause, came back
with a rebound.
But Suprunowicz picked this
point to go on his aforementioned
scoring binge and that was just
about the ball game. The Goph-
ers never ,quit trying, but no one
in his right mind had even the
slightest hope after Suprunowiez
finished his sniping and the score
read 42-23.

Wayne Jumper
Captures First
In AAU Meet
NEW YORK, Feb. 21-(A')-The
first two individual champions to
put their titles on the line were
dethroned today in the national
A.A.U. indoor track and field meet
at Madison Square Gar en.
Lorenzo Wright of Wayne Uni-
versity at Detroit won the broad
jump by leaping 25 feet, 3 4 inch-
;s, an effort in this meet that has
been surpassed only by Jesse Own-
es' 25 feet, 9 inches in 1935, the
world indoor record.
Herb Douglas of the University
of Pittsburgh, the defending
champion, placed second with 24
feet, 5 % inches, followed by Nath-
aniel Boyd of Philadelphia at 23
feet. 5 inches and Winfield Scott
of Army at 23 1 112 inches.
The seven-year hold of Henry
Dreyer of the New York Athletic
Club on the 35-pound weight
throw title was ended by Bob Ben-
nett of Providence, R. I., who
heaved the big ball 56 feet, 1 inch.
Sam Felton of Harvard placed
second with 54 feet, 9 3 8 inches,
while Dreyer had to be satisfied
with third place on 54 feet, 9 inch-
Dave Bolen, America's best
quarter-miler, won the 600-yard
title in the national A.A.U. indoor
track and field 'championships to-
night as the favored Herb McKen-
ley of Jamaica, Olympic 400-meter
favorite, wound up a poor fourth.'
Bolen took the lead after one
turn around the 160-yard oval at
Madison Square Garden and held
it the rest of the way to score by
a yard and a half in the crack
time of 1:11.8.
George Guida of Villanova, de-
fending champion at the distance,
finished second after setting the
pace through the first lap while
Frank Fox of Seton Hall College
beat the fading McKenley for

Michigan Wrestlers Edged
Out by Indiana Mat Squad
Captain Bob Betzig copped individual honors, but Indiana's
wrestlers took a tight 14-13 victory over Cliff Keen's charges at the
Hoosier Field Housv in Bloomington last night.
The Wolverine captain turned in the match's only fall victory,
upending Larry Nepolitan in 2:40 of the first period.
Michigan niopped off to a lead in the first match when red-headed
Byron Dean ;queez9d by Bob Braberden in' the 121 division, winning
Bill BrabL ,den, squared accounts, evening both the Indiana and
the Braberden scores, as he wrestled to a clean cut 9-4 victory over
Bob Johnston, Michigan's 1947 Big Nine runner-up.
They moved sill further in front when Johnny Brizantrout-
wrestled Jim Smith of Michigan in a free scoring affair. Brizant rolled
up ten points as Smith's counter offensive was good for only seven.
Michigan's George Curtis didn't break the Hoosier winning
streak, but he stopped it short as he grappled Jim Conklin to a 5-5
draw, in the 155 division.
The Hocsiers sewed up the match in the 175 division when Dick,
Fisher scored a 9-4 decision over Wes Tebeau.
