WOLVERINE ROUNDUP:
Track Trio Steals Vacation Spotlight

Michigan's wrestlers chalked up
u their sixth victory in eight starts,
when they defeated a strong Iowa
mat squad, 15-9, last night in
Yost Field House.
Again sparked by Larry Nelson's
superb grappling in the 128 pound
bracket, the Maize and Blue was
hard pressed all the way, but
showed strength in the middle
weights to gain the victory.
* * *
NELSON ROUTED the Hawk-
eyes' Manuel Macias to run his
victory string to eight straight,
without a defeat. Nelson piled up
points in every period to win the
match, almost recording a pin in
the final stanza.
Other Wolverine triumphs
were registered by Dave Space,
Captain Jim Smith, Bill Stapp
and Bud Holcomb.
Space, a highly successful 136
pound soph nosed out Ken Car-
men, 2-1, when he gained a point
for riding time at the end of the
match. It was Space's seventh win
in eight dual meets.
SMITH, WOLVERINE captain
and conference runner-up, won a
4-1 decision from Iowa's George
Tesla in'a 145 pound attraction,

when he was awarded two riding
time points in the final period.
Bill Stapp, another outstand-
ing Wolverine sophomore, took
his 155 pound bout from Miles
Bonda, 4-3, again via riding
time points, picked up in a
fiercely fought third period.
Bud Holcomb continued his suc-
cessful comeback to Michigan
grappling ranks when he took
Iowa's John Brozina, 6-2, at 165
pounds, in one of the meet's better
matches.
* * *
IOWA WON three of the meet's
bouts, Hawkeye wrestlers taking
the 121, 175 and heavyweight
bouts.
In the 121 pound match, By-
ron Dean, wrestling for Michi-
gan again after a semester's ab-
sence, lost a close decision to
Iowa's Vern McCoy, 2-1. McCoy
scored two points in. the last
period to gain the win.
Wrestling at 175, Wolverine
Conference champ Jack Powers
was routed by Joe Scarpello ano-
ther Conference titleholder, 8-2,
in a one-sided bout.
The heavyweight bout was also
a Hawkeye rout as Michigan's Joe
Planck fell before Iowa's Joe Paul-
sen, 7-1.

By MERLE LEVIN
(Sports Co-Editur)
A trio of Don Canham's track-
men stole the headlines as Michi-
gan athletic teams compiled a 10-
6 record in between semester ac-
tivities.
Don McEwen's record-making
activities in the two mile run,
Charlie Fonville's successful re-
turn to competition, and the
amazingly quick return of Ed Ul-
vestad combined to take top play
away from a stunning upset of
Navy by the Wolverine wrestlers
and a history-making loss to
Michigan State's powerful swim-
mers.
McEWEN, THE sophomore whiz
who is rapidly rounding in to the
best distance man in Michigan's
potent track history, succeeded in
breaking the varsity two mile rec-
ord in his third attempt as a Wol-
verine thinclad.
The smooth running Canadian
turned in a 9:06.9 effort against
Wisconsin to shatter Ralph
Schwarzkopf's mark of 9:09 set
in 1940. It was the fastest two
mile time ever turned in on an
indoor cinder track by a college
runner.E.. t r .
Earlier, McEwen had threaded
his way through over -crowded

fields to win the Michigan AAU
and Michigan State Relays in the
excellent times of 9:21.5 and 9:12.9
respectively. Only two of the 40-
plus men McEwen has faced so
far have escaped the ignominy of
being lapped by the Wolverine
sophomore.
* * *
FONVILLE, returning to action
after a year's lay-off necessitated
by a back operation, hurled the
16-pound shot 55 feet 1 inch on
his second throw in the Michigan
AAU meet to make an auspicious
debut. The heave would have been

good for a second place in the

failed to qualify for in 1948.
Ulvestad surprised a huge turn-
out at the Michigan-Wisconsin
dual meet by vaulting thirteen feet
to win the pole vault less than a
month after he had undergone an
emergency appendectomy. It was
believed that the bespectacled sen-
ior would be out of action until
the outdoor season.

frestling . .
Cliff Keen's wrestlers caused a
mild sensation in Eastern wrestl-
ing circles as they turned in a 20-
6 victory over a powerful Navy
team which had lost only one of
its previous 63 starts. The meet
was featured by Wolverine Bud
Holcombe's victory over the pre-

viously undefeated Arch Thomp-
son in the 165-pound class. Mich-
igan sophomore Larry Nelson scor-
ed the only pin of the meet in the
128-lb. division to remain unde-
feated.
Two days later the Wolverines,
suffering from a letdown, traveled
to Michigan State and were
thrown for an 18-6 loss in a meet
that was much closer than the
score indicated.
* * *
Swimming ...
The loss must have been con-
tagious because the following
Wednesday Matt Mann's swim-
mers traveled up to East Lansing
and were handed their first loss
in 26 dual meets with the Spar-
tans by a 46-38 count.
MSC, with its best team in his-
tory, took both relays to make
the difference. John Davies, the
Olympic swimmer from Australia,
toured the 200-yd. breastroke in
2:19.9 to provide a bright spot in
the Wolverine picture.
* * *
IT WAS THE faest time turn-
ed in by a Michigan breastroker in
two years. Davies became eligible
at the end of last semester and
was swimming for the second time
in varsity competition.
Hockey ...
The Wolverine hockey squad
turned in the best record during
the vacation lull, posting four
victories against a single defeat.
The Maize and Blue pucksters
scored a pair of wins over their
rivals from Minnesota and single
wins over Detroit Hettche and
Michigan Tech.
* * *
THE LONE LOSS was a 3-2 de-
feat by Michigan Tech last Friday.
The Wolverines also dropped a
10-1 decision to the Detroit Red
Wings in an annual exhibition
game with the National Hockey
League pace-setters.
* * *
Basketball . .
Ernie McCoy's cagers suffered
their second home loss in three
years on Jan. 21 with Ozzie Cowles
and his Minnesota basketballers
once again applying the hex. A
home win against Northwestern
and a road defeat at the hands of
last-place Purdue dropped the
Wolverines into the second divi-
sion.

ines showed for the fourth time
a winning spark. They broke loose
with seven points to tie the Go-
phers again, 46-46.
But that was as far as they
could go. Jerry Salovich headed
downcourt for Minnesota and
added the straw that broke the
camel's back. Then Jerry Mit-
chell adde dtwo more on free
throws to put the Gophers out
where they weren't touched
again.
* * *
THE MOST POTENT ingredient
of the Gopher attack was Whitey
Skoog who clipped off 11 field
goals to lead the Maroon and
Gold. But Skoog was a calculated
troublemaker. The worst blow
came from Jerry Mitchell who
knocked off 14 unexpected and
timely points for Minnesota.

Coach Newt Loken's gymnasts
open their 1950: Western Confer-
ence schedule tomorrow afternoon
when they take on the University
of Minnesota at the Intramural
Sports Building.
No matter how the meet turns
out it will be a Loken affair all
the way. The Gophers have their
share of the Loken family repre-
sented with Don and Herb, young-
er brothers of the Wolverines'
coach, playing prominent roles on
the 1949 Conference championship
outfit.
HERB IS THE NCAA and Big
Ten side horse titlist. A two letter
man, he also specializes in the
parallel bars and snared a second
place in the event in the Confer-
ence meet held here last March.
'T7he eider of the Minnesota Lo-
kens alsotakesthis turn at tumbl-
ing and on the trampoline.
The junior member of the
TYPEWRITERS I

family, 22-year-old Don, is also
a trampoliner and tumbling star
and is one of the brightest pros-
pects which the Gophers will
bring with them to Ann Arbor.
The Lokens at inneapolis are
carrying on the tradition estab-
lished by the Michigan Coach
when he took the all-around crown
for Minnesota in 1941 and 1942.
* * *
MINNESOTA will be a much
weaker squad this year than they
were in 1949 when the Gophers
took the Conference champion-
ship and finished in the runner-
up spot in the NCAA meet. They
have lost their, biggest gun in
Capt. Jim Peterson, Conference
all-around champ last year and
one of the most versatile gymnasts
in Minnesota history. The Min-
neapolites will also be without the
services of Don Hedstrom, co-cap-
tain with Peterson last year.
