I By MARV EPSTEIN
Pleased with Michigan's perfor-
mance in Saturday's Western Con-
ference gymnastics champion-
ships, Coach Newt Loken started
work yesterday with the four
Wolverines who will travel to
West Point this veek for the
NCAA meet.
Loken announced yesterday
that Captain Pete Barthell, Ed
Buchanan, Gordie Levenson and
Connie Ettl will represent the
' Maize and Blue at the Nationals
Saturday.
BUCHANAN and Levenson will
confine themselves to trampoline-
ing, while Barthell and EttI will
work all-around.
The latter pair finished third
and fifth in the Big Ten all-
around in one of the toughest
fields since the championships
were revived after a war-time
layoff.
Loken disclosed yesterday that
despite Illinois' winning margin,
28.5 points, Michigan could not
have bettered its second place
showing.
THE WOLVERINES might
have narrowed the distance be-

clicked a little better than they
did in some events, said Loken,
but Illinois was red hot and sim-
ply could not be bested.
Some of the local fans were
a little disappointed after the
Iowa City contest, but Loken as-
serted that had Michigan met
the Illini during the regular
season there would have been
less of a feeling that Michigan
could have taken its only Con-
ference championship in win-
ter sports.
The meet shaped up almost the
way the experts called it. Illinois,
favored from the start, piled up

more points, however, than most
of the authorities had predicted,
while Michigan took the count of
Minnesota as anticipated.
IOWA, WITH 13 points, and
Indiana with 5n1/2, were the only
other teams to figure in the scor-
ing.
Major share of the disap-
pointment was confined to the
fact that Buchanan failed to
defend his trampoline title.
However, the Wolverine tramp
champ will get an opportunity to

FOR THE PROUD Braves from
Peoria, Ill., it's a chance to re-
claim their position as the No. 1
team in the nation and redeem a
69-61 defeat by CCNY in the re-
cent National Invitation Finals.
For the CCNY Beavers, grown
sure and pirate bold by their
series of sensational post-season
triumphs, it's a chance to en-
compass the sport's first and
only "grand slam.

Agenda

By BILL CONNOLLY
Spring drills will open for Mich-
igan's football team on Monday,
April 3rd, with a group of 70 men
expected to report for condition-
ing.
The Wolverines will practice for
a week; from April 3rd to April
7th, and then adjourn for spring
vacation, returning for a five
week's session starting April 17th.

REPLACEMENTS in practically
every position will be the major
problem which confronts Head
Coach Bennie Posterbaan and his
assistants as the post-war back-
log of players has run its course.
The Wolverines, who have
won or shared the Conference
championships since 1947, face
their biggest rebuilding job
since the war.

and tear from high-pressure
tournament play.
Coach Forrest (Forddy) Ander-
son of Bradley said his boys were
"tired as the dickens" but "eager
to face CCNY again."
THE BRAVES have had the
added strain of traveling mixed
with their post-season campaign-
ing, jumping between New York,
Kansas City and Peoria. CCNY,
at least, has been able to stay
home.

NEW YORK-The heavyweight
Championship fight between Ez-
zard Charles and Freddie Beshore,
scheduled Wednesday night in
Buffalo, was postponed a second
time last night because of an old
side injury to Charles, a source
close to the New York State Ath-
letic Commission said.
BRADENTON, Fla. - Rookie
