Wolverines Beat Kent State'
By Sweeping Tramp Event

They threw Newt Loken in the
varsity pool last night and when
he came to the surface he had a
big smile on his face.
The smile was there because the
Michigan gymnastics coach had
just seen his team defeat Kent
State University, 54-42, and finish
the first unbeaten season in Mich-
igan gymnastics history.
THE KENT WIN came the hard
way, just as practically two other
f the six dual wins have come this
season. It had to come that way
for the Golden Flashes are rated
among the best in the mid-west.
The balance of power which
most observers predicted would
be necessary if the Wolverines
were to come out on top was
there in the form anticipated.
Michigan won in the final event,
the trampoline, with a clean sweep
of first, second and third places
which were nabbed by Ed Buchan-
an, Tom Tillman and Sam Dudley.
Buchanan thus emulated th team
record by going unbeaten himself
this season.
AHEAD BY ONLY two points,
41-39, after the first five events,
Coach Loken took a chance on
Dudley who has only come into
his own since the Ohio State
meet two weeks ago. Gordie Leven-
son, just recently recovered from
a bad ankle injury incurred in that
duel, was ready but Loken de-
cided to stick with Dudley and
save Levenson.
Dudley's third and Tillman's
second put the new record in the
books. It remained only for
Buchanan to set the high per-
formance point total of the eve-
ning with 282 to finish the per-
Captain Pete Barthell got his
usual "daily double," a pair of
wins in the parallel bars and
tumbling. He and Buchanan ac-
counted for all three of the Maize
and Blue firsts.
BARTHELL finished with 19
team points, adding a second in
the side horse and a third in the
flying rings to his other six-
pointers. The scoring honors for
thenevening, however, went to
Kent 'State's amazing T'oe Kotys,
Kotys, a member of the United
States Olympic gymnastics
team, totaled 25 markers for his
night's work, placing in each of
the six events. He took firsts in
the side horse and high bar,
seconds in the parallel bars and
flying rings, third in the tum-
bling and fourth in the trampo-
There was only one thing to
mar the end of Michigan's most
successful gymnastics year. Con-

nie Ettl, sophomore sensation up-
on whom L o ken was counting
heavily in the flying rings, fin-
ished out of the scoring on that
piece of apparatus when his ropes
became entangled on an attempted
shoulder pop-out. Ettl made up
for it by a second and third in
the high bar and parallel bars,
TILLMAN showed the most
spunk last night, finishing his
trampoline routine after taking a
hard fall against a side support.
His determination to finish up
came at a crucial moment and
was one of the turning points of
the meet.
The meet was close all the
way through. After both teams
tied in the side horsethe score
see-sawed back and forth and
was tied 24-all after the con-
clusion of the flying rings com-
The defeat of the Golden
Flashes means that the Wolver-
ines will enter next Saturday's
Western Conference meet as the
favored team. Kent had defeated
the other Big Ten power, Illinois,
earlier in the season.
The largest crowd of the season
was on hand, setting a new high in
home attendance. They saw a vir-
tual one-man team in Kotys, who
turned in what was without a
doubt, the most amazing show
local spectators have seen this

that the University of Michigan
has won the Big Nine basketball
crown outright only twice in
the 43 year history of Big Nine
cage competition?

LEADING SCORER-Ed Buchanan, ace trampoline artists of
the Michigan Gymnastic squad, led the Wolverines to a 54-42
victory over Kent State. Buchanan has yet to be beaten on the
trampoline in competition this season. He posted his seventh
victory last night while also taking individual performance honors
with a high point total of 282, out of a possible 300. Buchanan
is the only man in history to hold the four major trampoline
titles, NCAA, NAAU, Western Open and Big Ten.

Barber Leads
Golf Tourney
Jerry Barber, likeable little man
who has sold nearly all his fellow
professionals on the golf club he
invented, gave them a show of
record breaking golf yesterday.
Always ready with a grin and
friendly word, Barber was ready
with birdies too. On a 32-33-65
turn of the 6,508-yard Hyde Park
course, his seven-under-par score
went nicely with his 71 of yester-
day for the 36-hole lead in the
Jacksonville Open at 136.
BARBER WHO is playing out
of Overland, Mo., was not alone
in the record breaking depart-
ment. His 65 wasonly one stroke
better than the round turned in
by veteran Bob Hamilton.
Hamilton also had a starting
71 and halfway through the
tournament trailed the leader
by a single stroke.
