COACH Newt Loken is taking
with him the core of the team
that finished the most successful
season in Michigan gymnastics
history. With this nucleus heI
hopes to upset Illinois which has
been given the pre-tournament
role of favorite.
The Illini are tied with Min-

nesota, the only other team
rated a chance for team honors,
at five Conferenda titles.
The Illini will give the Wol-
verines trouble in the very de-
partments in which they are
strongest. Gay Hughes, who held
the NCAA trampoline crown be-
fore Buchanan took it away from
him, should give the Michigan
bouncer a hard way to go in de-
fending his .Big Ten laurels.

ceded the finest tumbler in the
country, and Connie Ettl, who will
work all-around along with Bar-
thell, will find tough going from
the Orange and Blue' Frank Do-
