Wolverine Gym Team Ready

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last
in a series of three articles dealing
with the forthcoming western Con-
ference swimming championships and
Michigan's chances of dethroning
Ohio State.)
Tonight at 8:00 p.m. Coach

championships get under way at
the Iowa pool in Iowa City:
The relay events which ward

usually the pivotal races in
these down-to-theiwire meet-
ings and the Wolverines will
have a difficult task assigned
to them in their attempt to cap-

A Maize and Blue team consist-
ing of four of these five men:
Tom Coates, Bill Kogen, Dave
Tittle, Harry Holiday and Dick
Weinberg will face strong opposi-
tion from Iowa and Ohio State..
Michigan's quartet has al-
ready turned in a fast timing
of 3:31.1, but Iowa's quartet of
Ev Straub, Wally Ris, Duane
Draves and Dick Maine or Larry
Larimore has smashed the ex-
isting American record for the
distance in the 50-yard pool,
Ohio's quartet of Bill Zemer,
Bob deGroot, Halo Hirose and
Bill Smith has also performed
amazingly well over the distance.
They finished scant inches be-
hind the Michigan team in their
dual meet and pushed Iowa to its
record-breaking feat.
In the 100-yard freestyle,
0 Michigan's Weinberg will face
the cream of the country's
sprinters. Ris of Iowa has al-
ready beaten the Saginaw
Speedster and Halo Hirose of
Ohio State barely lost a decision,

Michigan's "touch-out" twins,
Matt Mann III and Gus Sta-
ger will not find the going easy
in the 440-yard freestyle, either.
They'll face the strong threats
of Bill H1eusner, Northwestern
ace and Bill Smith, the "World's
Greatest Swimmer."
When the smoke has cleared
and this year's championships are
a thing of the past the crown may
rest on a new head, that of Mich-
igan. If experts predictions are
correct the Wolverines should take
the title with about 72 points,
while Ohio State should.be just
off the pace with about a 64 point
But as in the past, anything
can happen when the two greatest
powers on the swimming horizon
clash in these Western Conference

1lliOiIs Tech Relays
Second Last Indoors
With the Western Conference
Meet behind them, Michigan's
track team will appear in a sec-
and to last event of the indoor
season when they travel to Chi-
cago this weekend to participate
in the Illinois Tech Relays.
The Wolverine thinclads, paced
by captain Herb Barten, who is
expected to run the anchor leg in
three separate relay events, can be
expected to make a serious bid for
the team title in the Chicago
event. Ohio State, new Big Nine
champions, probably will not en-
ter a squad, and the race appears
to be a two team affair between
the Maize and Blue and Illinois.
Barten, who is suffering from a
slight cold, but who is expected to
round into shape before the week-
end, may be called upon to run the
final leg in the mile, two mile, and
sprint medley relays. If the Wol-
verines can amass enough points
in these baton-passing events, and
couple them with a cinch victory
forCharlie Fonville in the shot-
put, and other points in the field
events by pole-vaulter Ed Ulve-
stad, high jumpers Bob Harris and
Tom Dolvn, and broad-jumpiler
Bob Fancett, the Wolverines could
be pretty hard to handle in the
Windy City get-together.
Coach Ken Doherty will split his
squad over the weekend, and the
men who do not make the trip to
Chicago will stay in Ann Arbor to
meet the Albion College thinclads
in a dual meet at 4:30 Friday af-
ternoon at the Field House.

coming Big Nine Championship me't.)
The newest of the University of
Michigan's athletic organizations
--the Gymnastics team-will have
its chance to bring a Big Nine
Conference Championship back to
Ann Arbor this Saturday when it
journeys to the Chicago Navy Pier
to engage in the annual Confer-
ence Gymnastics meet.
After the 1933 season, gymnas-
tics, as a varsity sport, was shelvecl
partly because of the cool Iecep-
tion given the sport by the fan.,.
Last Spring the Board in Control
of Inter-Collegiate Athletics de-
cided to reactivate gymnastics at
a varsity Wolverine sport. The
team is under the direction of
Coach Newt Loken, a member of
the 1941 Minnesota squad which
captured the Big Nine crown that.
Chicago Dominated
Up until 1939 the University of
Chicago, notably weak in the
bigger sports, was the big gun
among Big Nine gymnasts. The
Maroon dynasty was ended in that
year by Illinois. The Illini also
walked off with the Conference
title the following year, only to.

proloriged domination of the cov-
eted title, similar to Ifliat enjoyed
by Chiaglo in the earlier stages
of Conrct'el'ee Gymnastics.
Other Terms Entered
Thiea r's meet promises to be
the hap and nst apealing
event in 3ig Nine history. From
the Conference itself, Minnesota,
Illinois, Michigan, Ohio State,
Wisconsin, Purdue, and Iowa will
be repreinted.
In addition the Meet will be an
invitatioical affair, open to schools
outside the Conference. Chicago,
Michigan State, Nebraska, and the
host for the evening, Navy Pier,
have aCC(┬░pted bids to compete.
The resid s of these non-Confer-
ence entries will be recorded as
individur t performances only. Per-
formance6 of Big Nine competitors
will be computed on a team basis,
the team with the most number
of points becoming Big Nine
But, something new has been
added to the pre-war syllabus of

"te tional and Conferene conpet
tion in Gymnastics. For the tir10
time the trampoline will make its
appearance in National AAU and
Big Nine circles. This event was
added at the beginning of the
season to provide greater spec-
tator appeal.
Seven Other Events
Seven events will go to make
up the program Saturday night;
the high bar, side horse, flying
rings, parallel bars, tumbling.
trampoline, and the All-Around
event. The last is also new to
Conference competition, having
been added because of the coming
Olympic games this summer. It
includes the high and parallel
bars, the side and long horse, fly-
ing rings, and free exercise. The
All-Around is performed by one
man and is similar to the decath-
lon of Olympic track fame.
Scoring in each event is similar
to the system employed in award-
ing points to competitors in div-
ing. Three judges rate perform-
ances on the basis of 5 points for
form, 3 points for continuity,
and 7 for difficulty. The contend-
er with the most points (45 point
maximum) is awarded first place.
Team totals are based on 10 points
for first place, 9 for second, etc,
This system gives the individual a
chance to add to his team total.
