Capturing five first places out
of six events and tying for top
honors in the other, Michigan's
gymnastic squad gave its Mich-
igan State host an ungracious
62/2-32%j trouncing in Jenisen
Field House last night. t
Even Co-captain Glen Neff, who
was reported to be bed-ridden
with a touch of flu, made the trip
and managed to perform with

Spartans were able to get a
bigger slice of points than the
Maize and Blue was tumbling.
Michigan's Bob Willoughby
was locked by Lavern Chubb
as the evening's best flip art-
ist, while State's ' Jack Parker
edged Wolverine Johnny Allred
for third giving the Lansing
lads eight points compared to
seven for Michigan.
The Wolverines jumped off,
with a substantial lead on the
high bars as Bob Willoughby and
Dick Fashbaugh shared high hon-
ors. Teammate Hack Coplin
swung in third ahead of MSC's
Arnold Nelson and Lou Beechnau
to hand the Maize and Blue a
total of 13 tallies to three for
Michigan State.

Poretta SiIks 18 Points for Wolves
_I it-hn rumble' 5749 Loss

C lease Tank'
Matt Mann is a very happy man1
these days and it's no wonder af-1
ter the dazzling performance his
swimmers put on while trouncingi
Purdue 64-20 Saturday afternoon.
Coach Mann, who heads the list1
as the world's greatest optimist,,
was forced to admit that "the boys
went so well that they even sur-1
prised me. I knew they were good1
but not that good."1
Mann Impressed
A quick glance at the times re-
corded in every event should be'
enough warning to the rest of
the Big Nine that this year's Wol-
verine swimming team really
means business. An outstanding
exhibition is certainly not unique
experience for Mann, but he did
have plenty to say about Bob Sohl
and Tommy Coates.
Coach Mann admitted that
Sohl's 2:17.5 job on the 200 yard
breast stroke (a new pool record)
was a slight surprise, but has-
tened to add that Coates surprised
him even more when he got the
400 yard relay team off to a fly-
ing start with a 53 second hun-
dred. This was far and away the
best time Coates has turned in all
year and tabs him as a point get-
ter in future meets.
Diver Draws Comment
Mann also commented on Gil
Evans' comeback in the diving
event. Trailing by 16 points with
but two dives to go, Evans cae
through in fine style in both of
them to capture the event by a
four point margin.
Evans executed his double twist-
ing forward one and one half-one
of diving's most difficult stunts
-almost flawlessly to push him-
self up on top of the head.
Frosh Cagers
Show Slight
Michigan's freshman basketball
squad scrimmaged a group of Law
Quad members Monday, and al-
though they didn't quite show up
to Coach Joe Vancisin's expecta-
tions, the young cagemen have
shown some improvements in abil-
ity since beginning their *orkouts
in the fall semester.
Vancisin admitted that the
youthful cagers need a lot of prac-
tice and instruction in not only
their passing and rebounding, but
their entire defensive play. In part,
he blames the weekend layoff for
the below average showing of the
cagers Monday, but is striving to
get them in shape so they can play
good ball continuously.
To work for this, the freshmen
will scrimmage among themselves
the rest of this week and may take
on Coach Bert Katzenmeyer's
jayvees Monday if Vancisin thinks
they are ready.

Michigan goal, but he was hooked
from behind by Defenseman Dick
Starrak and was awarded a pen-
alty shot by Referee Ace Lee.
However, goalie McDonald turned
back the shot with little effort.
It wasn't until 13:12 of the sec-
ond period that either team broke
into the scoring column, with Cy
Cardiff knotting the score by a
three apiece netting his own re-
bound on a screen shot that Mc-
Donald didn't see.
Hill put the Wolverines in
front to stay at 15:29 of the
middle stanza when he tallied
on a 15-footer that fooled Wat-
The third period opened some-
what faster than had the other
but fans had to wait until 11:21
to see a score. Renfrew sewed
things up for the Wolverines here
taking a beautiful pass from Mc-
Millan to beat Watson, ending
the scoring for the evening.
Wolverine defenseman Clem
Cossalter and Collison roughed it
up in the Michigan zone and
both were sent off for two min-
utes. When Collison objected
strenuously to his part in the ac-
tivities, Lee gave him an addi-
tional ten minutes in the sin bin
for misconduct.
In spite of the four goals scored
against him, Goalie Watson was
outstanding for the Bears, doing
yeoman work during most of the

Michigan's Jayvee basketball
team put the clamps on Toledo's
group of freshmen sharp shooters
for three quarters of their rough
and tumble tussle last night, then
got caught in a whirl of Rocket
baskets and finally dropped a 57-
49 decision to the visitors.
The much-improved Wolverine
team matched the Toledo attack
point for point in the first half
and held a 20-19 edge at the half
way mark. Toledo quickly recov-
ered the lead at the beginning of
the second period but was unable
to salt the game away until the
last five minutes.
Poretta Tops 'M'
George Poretta, rangy 6-4 cen-
ter, was the siege gun in the Mich-
igan attack as he tossed in 18
points during the evening and did
more than his share of retrieving
rebounds off the backboard.
The Rocket scoring honors were
divided among three Toledo play-
ers. Set shot artist Bill Walker
threw in seven baskets and a free
throw for 15 points but received
plenty of assistance from George
Lindeman and Bob Shultz who
racked up 13 points a piece.
Rusty on Free Throws
The Wolverine cagers were par-
ticularly deficient at the foul line
where they picked up only 11 out
of 20 free throws while Toledo was
getting 15 points the easy way.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer em-
ployed a zone defense last night
in his attempt to halt the rampag-
ing Rockets who had walloped the
Wolverines in their last engage-
ment 70-54.
Toledo Beats Zone
The strategy paid fine dividends
until Walker and his mates
stopped trying to fight the zone
and stepped back to riddle the
hoop from outside.
Michigan's work under the bas-
ket was especially impressive to-

night. The Bob Holloway, Bump
Elliott, Dick Kempthorn, Bob
Erben, and Tom Peterson combi-
nation gave Katzenmeyer a rug-
ged lineup capable of getting the
ball but lacking a scoring punch
able to cope with the finnesse of
the Toledo youngsters.
Tonight's loss puts the Jayvees'
record at four losses and three

Set Shots in Sndry Directions:
If Michigan's league-leading quin-
tet can cop the Big Nine title
this year, it will mark the first
timie since 1031 that a Western
Conference "-,doolli u; catured
both the basketball and football
crowns during the sare year
Purdue was the last power to turn
the trick.
Minnesota hopes to have its
coach, Dave McMillan, available
for Saturday's tussle with Mich-
igan at Minneapolis . . . The Go-
pher mentor lay sick in a hotel
room last Monday evening, as
coachless Minnesota dropped a
54-38 decision to Purdue . . . Jim
McIntyre, the Conference's lead-
ing scorer, helped coach the team
in the absence of McMillan. ....


Down thtrough the years, Pur-
due and Indiana have contin-
itally jinxed the Wolverines in
cage play. . .. In fact, not since
the 19301-31 campaign has the
Mlaize and luhe been able to
knock off both the Boilermak-
ers in. the sa-ie season . .. But
the Wolverines polished off
these two clubs this year . . .
They meet Purdue again, how-
ever, on the road next Monday
After watching his Hurryin'
Hoosiers fall to Michigan this
week, Coach Branch McCracken
seemed convinced that Michigan
has what it takes. . . . "They have
more than either Wisconsin or
Iowa," he said.
Michigan now sports a 6-2

I-M Relayers
Race Toniht
Yost Field House will play host
tonight at 7:30 to four-man relay
teams in the fraternity, residence
halls, and independent half-mile
relay preliminaries.
Each division will be represent-
ed with each member of the four-
man team running 220 yards. As
the teams take the track they will
be shooting for the present I-M
record of 1:37.5 in the half-mile
event, set by the Lloyd House re-
lay team in 1942.
Last year's winners were Greene
House and Beta Theta Pi, but, if
the recent turnout for practice in
the Field House is any indication,
the crown is anything but secure,
for this year's running should pro-
vide some very fine competition.
