'Tramp' Win
Gives 5145
VictoryEdge-
By MARV EPSTEIN
With Pete Barthell taking three
of the four Michigan firsts, the
Wolverine gymnastics team won
its most important meet of the
season, beating Michigan State,
51-45, last night.
* * * ',-
BEHIND two points going into
{A the final event, the Maize and
Blue trampoliners grabbed first,
s second and fourth to trim the
Spartans by six points before a
record crowd at 'the Intramural
Sports Building.
Scoring honors of the evening
went to Michigan State's all-
around Mel Stout, who worked
five of the six events on the
program and totaled 192 points
on a first, two seconds and two
thirds, one a tie. Captain Bar-
thell was high for Michigan and
runner-up to Stout with 19
points.
Barthell walked off with num-
ber one spots in the side horse,
parallel bars, and tumbling and
also garnered a fourth in the fly-
ing rings.
ED BUCHANAN maintained his
unblemished record in the tram-
poline by scoring the high per-
formance point total for the eve-
ning with 280, to account for the
other Michigan event victory.
The triumph gave Coach Newt
Loken's acrobats a record of six
straight without defeat. With a
conquest of Kent State next
week the Wolverines can finish
'the 1950 schedule with a perfect
dual meet record.
Fred Thompson and Sam Dud-
ley, subbing for the ailing Gordie
Levenson, came through with
point-getting performances in the
e tumbling and trampoline respec-
tively to contribute four big mark-
ers to the Michigan cause.
* * *
CONNIE ETTL had a rough
break on the parallel bars and
finished out of the scoring be-
cause of a bad mount. It was the
, first time he failed to score in an
event this year.
Stout won the flying rings and
Bob Feldmeier of Michigan State
took the high bar to tally the
Spartans only six-pointers.
The Wolverines were behind 39-
41 after the conclusion of the first
five events. Tom Tillman's second
place in the tramp put the meet
on ice, and Dudley's fourth added
the -finishing touches. Little Tom
also worked a second in the tumbl-
ing and a third in the flying rings.
Ettl finished with a third in the
high bar and a fifth in the flying
rings.

Charlie Murray, junior guard
from Birmingham, Mich., was
elected captain of Michigan's
1950-51 basketball team at a meet-
ing of this year's lettermen yes-
terday afternoon.
* * *
MURRAY succeeds Mack Su-
prunowicz, high scoring forward,
who was chosen Most Valuable
Player by his mates at the same
meeting.
A reserve award winner in
1948-49, Murray opened the past
season in a starting guard posi-
tion and with only a few ex-
ceptions occupied that spot for
the rest of the year.
Although he stands only 5 ft. 11
in., small as colege cagers go,
Murray showed up well under the
boards, and was the hero of the
69-67 upset victory over Indiana
when he tipped in a rebound to
snap the deadlock as the final
buzzer sounded.
HE SCORED 17 points in this
game for runnerup honors and
his high point total of the year.
Through an oversight, a story
in yesterday's Daily concerning
Michigan's all-time Conference
championship record neglected
to point out that the Wolver-
ines won eight out of nine Big
Ten titles in 1943-44, and that
the golf team preserved the
Maize and Blue tradition of
winning at least one Western
Conference crown every year by
getting the laurels in both 1946
and 1947.
He also netted 17 points against
Minnesota at Yost Field House to
lead the Michigan pointgetters
while being assigned the unenvi-
able task of guarding Gopher
jumping jack, Whitey Skoog.
During the season, Murray
scored 147 points on 42 field
goals and 63 foul points for fifth
place on the Wolverine scoring
list. He netted 81 points in Big
Ten action to also finish in
fifth place in that department.
Murray is one of five letter-
men who is returning for duty
next year. The others are Leo
VanderKuy, Jim Skala, Bill Doyle,
and Bob Olson.

CONFERENCE BRIEFS:
Directors Raise Cage Schedule to 14

) .

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO -Big Ten athletic
directors yesterday recommended
a 1951 Conference basketball
schedule of 14 games, an increase
of two over the number played
seasonally with few exceptions
since 1906.
The new slate, which must be
certified by the faculty -repre-
sentatives, meeting concurrent-
ly with the athletic directors,
provides for the debut of new
member Michigan State.
Under the 14-game card, each
school meets five rivals on a
home-and-home basis and four
foes in single games, two away
and two home.
Since basketball records were
first officially compiled in 1906,
the Big Ten has played mainly
a 12-game card. The most re-
cent difference was in 1942 when
15 games were played.
The addition of Michigan State
4 brings the league field to 10 in
basketball for the first time since
Chicago abandoned the Confer-
ence after the 1946 season.
Even with a 14-game league
schedule, the Big Ten's over-all

season limitation of 22 games will
prevail.
Double Bills Out
ATHLETIC DIRECTOR Ted
Payseur of Northwestern con-
firmed a report that the Wildcat
school will abandon in whole or
in part its affiliation with the an-
nual Chicago Stadium double-
header program.
Payseur said Northwestern
cagers will play most of their
home Conference games next
season at the Evanston High
School court.

post."
