Michigati Thinclads To Make
Strong Bid in Purdue Relays

The fmnai' of tii indoor t
season at the Purdue Relays will
see Michigan in its strongest bid
for mid-western prominence.
One again at full strength the
Wolverines will be facing a vir-
tual duplication of the talent they
met several weeks ago at the Con-
ference meet at Champaign.
The Maize and Blue lead in
the number of entries with 20,
closely follow-d by Ohio State's
Big Nine champions with 19.

Although no team crown will be
at stake, there's going to be plenty
of competition in both the relay
and individual events.
In the mile relay it will be Mich-
igan's unbeaten quartet against
Ohio State which has been
strengthened by the return of Ed
Porter.
The Wolverines have the best
time in the country to their credit
but the reinforced Buckeyes will
be pressing close.

'M' Puchsters
Win Trophy,
All-Star Posts
When Gretchen Merrill, five
time national figure skating queen,
presented the National Collegiatel
Athletic Association champion-
ship trophy to Connie Hill last
Saturday, it marked the culmina-
tion of the greatest season of the
ice sport in the history of Michi-
gan.
Not only did the Wolverines cop
the national crown but they also
left a reputation at Colorado
Springs that will live for a long
time in the minds of the Rocky
Mountain hosts.
Gentlemen All
Compliments were received by
all of the Michigan players for
their behavior both on and off the
ice. "They are the finest bunch
of boys that have ever been here,"
it was said just before the trium-
phant pucksters left for Ann Ar-
bor. "They were gentlemen at all
times and will always be welcome
at the Broadmoor," a hotel repre-
sentative said.
John Gustafson, one oftthe of-
ficials in the tournament, when
asked about the playing prowess of
the four teams in the play-offs,
said, "Michigan plays a pro type
hockey. Some fans think it is too
rough for colleges, and the NCAA
Rules Committee has attempted
to make a safer game of the sport
with restrictive rules.
Gain Respect
"But Michigan can't play any
other way and I respect them for
it," he added. They're smart play-
ers, especially those defensemen-.
The penalties I called on them had
to be called because we had to
judge the game under NCAA
rules."
The Associated Press conducted
a poll among the visiting scribes
and selected an All-Star tourna-
ment team. Michigan placed four
men on the first and second teams.
Connie Hill, Wolverine captain,
and Wally Grant were named to
the right defense and the left
wings spots, respectively on the
first team.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second
of three articles on the forthcoming
NCAA swimming meet being held in
the Michigan pool this weekend. To-
morrow's article will deal with Sat-
urday's events.)
By MERLE LEVIN
Matt Mann III, Michigan's Big
Nine champ in the 1500-meters,
will attempt to get the Wolverines
off to a flying start tonight in
their bid to wrest the NCAA title
from Ohio State.
The opening event on the three
day NCAA program, the first heat
of the 1500-meters will get under
way in the I-M pool at 8 p.m. Be-
cause it is the only event tonight
no admission will be charged.
Mann will be one of four
swimmers, entered by Michigan
in the lid-lifter. Gus Stager,
Johnny McCarthy and Jay San-
ford will swim for the Maize and
Blue against such outstanding
natators as Bill Smith, George
Hoogerhyde and Roger Watts.
Two of swimming's biggest men,
both literally and figuratively, will
feature Friday night's NCAA
events.
They are Allen Stack of Yale
and Harry Holiday of Michigan,
two 6'5" giants who are without
doubt the two greatest backstrok-
ers in swimming today.
Holiday, defending champion
in the 150-yard backstroke
event, has reigned as the undis-
puted kingpin in his specialty
for the last few years, but the 19
year old Stack has made a
strong bid to dethrone the Mich-
igan ace and recently broke Hol-
iday's national record with a
brilliant 1:30.8 timing.
On the basis of this record-
smashing effort Stack has been
established as the man to beat,
but the hard-working Holiday
isn't going to give up his crown
without a struggle, which all adds
up to a top thriller on a night
which will be chock full of thrills.
Some forty men will be out to
dethrone Michigan's Dick Wein-

berg in the star-cluttered 50-yard
freestyle event. Top threats to
Weinberg are Keith Carter of Pur-
due who defeated Weinberg for
the Big Nine championship, Hen-
ry Paton of Michigan State who
also holds a decision over Wein-
berg this season, Don De Forrest
of Pen and Halo Hirose of Ohio
State.
Other top stars competing in
this event include Bob Anderson,
Stanford Grid star, who has held
the NCAA 60 and 100 yard free-
style records in the Pacific Coast
Conference for the past two years,
Ed Broadbent of Yale, and Danny
Green of Texas A & M, the South-
west Conference champion.
The 300-yard medley relay
will find Michigan an odds-on
favorite to retain its title.
Standing head and shoulders
above the field, the trio of Harry
Holiday, Bob Sohl and either
Bill Kogan or Dave Tittle
shouldn't be greatly extended by
anyone.
Their chief competition will
come from Yale, Iowa, Michigan
State and Ohio State, but only
overconfidence could beat the
Wolverines in this event.
The' 220-yard freestyle will find
defending champion Bill Smith
facing an aggregation of swim-
ming stars which for sheer bril-
liance of name and performance is
without peer.
The man to beat will be Iowa's
Wally Ris who has replaced
Smith as America's finest swim-
mer. Holder of thi national
collegiate record in the 220 and
twice conqueror of Smith in that
event this year, Ris has his work
cut out for him.
Besides Smith, Ris must defeat
Matt Mann III and Gus Stager of
Michigan, Roger Watts of Iowa
State, George Hoogerhyde from
Michigan State, Penn's De For-
rest, Bill Heusner of Northwestern,
Joe Verdeur, LaSalle's brilliant
Olympic prospect, and Paul Girdes
of Yale.
Consider the fact that these men
are not more than two or three
seconds apart in their times, that
each one is being boomed as a top
Olympic prospect and that five of
them (Ris, Mann, Stager, Smith,
and Heusner) finished within two
feet of each other in the Big Nine
championships and it adds up to
a race that will not soon be for-
gotten.
Low board diving can be
sum~med up in two words-Ohio
State. Led by Miller Anderson,
the boys from Columbus figure
to place their whole continghnt
which includes beside Ander-
son, Hobie Billingsley, Jack Cal-
houn and Bruce Harlan.
Only Gil Evans, the redhead
Michigan star, figures to smash
the Ohio monopoly. However a
little third string diver from Mich-
igan named Tommy O'Neil could
pull the upset of the meet.

Marriage complications almost
forced I-M boxing champion Bob
Harrison out of this year's intra-
mural competition.
The Montclair, N.J. fighter had
little intention of defending his
pugilistic crown when workouts
first began, but he sparred a couple
times just to stay in shape..
Boxing instructor Lee Setomer
and several other friends prac-
tically pushed him into the ring
for the semi-finals one week after
he had married "the girl next
door."
The rest is history. Harrison de-
cisioned Jack Hallberg and was
voted the outstanding fighter in
the tournament. Setomer thought
he was so good last year that he
shoved Bob into the Golden Gloves
tournament at Jackson where he
lost a decision in the semi-finals.
This year Bob took the measure
of Conny Nelson and Hallberg at
155 pounds and was again judged
the top ring contestant. Much of
the bald-headed Civil Engineer's
success comes from boxing experi-
ence picked up in seven years in
the RCA.F.
"The Eagle" (as he's called by
ringsiders) doesn't pack a par-
ticularly lethal punch but relies
largely on excellent foot work and
brains to bring him through his
bouts. Without doubt he had the
most class in the tournament.
Byron Dean, Varsity wrestler,
cut loose with a wicked offense in
the final round with his bout with
Morrie Koblenz to win a split de-
cision. At the end of two rounds
Koblenz had a slight edge. Dean
realizing this really went into ac-
cf

tion to score repeatedly in the
final round.
Jim Edberg gave a very good
demonstration of counter punch-
ing against the more aggressive
Dave Ruetenik in the 145 pound
finals. Ruetenik was staggered
and appeared "out on his feet" in
the last heat.
Larry Hetrick's right hand
punches in the second round took
much of the fight out- of Mark
Abend. Hetrick had control of his
match throughout and left the
ring with a unanimous decision.
