Gymnasts Surprise Gophers, 52-44

Revamped Puck Squad

Laz, 15 Feet Vault Ace,
To Lead Illini Trackmen

The second man in the history
of track and field competition to
clear the much sought-after 15
feet height in the pole vault will
be in Ann Arbor Friday afternoon.
"Illinois will present its prodig-
ions vaulting star, Don Laz, to
Michigan traci- fans in the dual
meet between the Wolverines and
the Illini, with the opening of the
field events scheduled for 2:00
p.m. and the track events begin-
nilig half an hour later.
LAZ TURNED the trick last
January 21st, in the Illinois Ar-
mory, during an intra-squad meet.
The mark cannot be officially rec-
ognized but, nevertheless, he is
the only man to have cleared the
bar at that height since the great
Cornelius Warmerdam racked his
pole for the last time a few years
Ever since Warmerdam am-
azed track authorities by clear-
ing 15 feet consistantly-he did
it over 65 times-pole vaulters
have been aiming for this mark.
In competition, the Illinois jun-
ior cleared 14-6 in the Millrose
games on January 28, and last
week set a new Armory record of
14 feet, 3 % inches in a dual be-
tween Illinois and Ohio State.
ONE OF the featured events of
the day, the pole vault will pro-

vide Michigan's Ed Ulvestad with
an acid test of the extent of his
recuperation. He surprised track
fans by jumping 13 feet to earn
first place against Wisconsin last
Saturday night.
Ulvestad, who holds the
Michigan Varsity record for
this event, made the jump less
than one month after undergo-
ing an emergency appendect-
omy and with only two days of
light warm-ups the previous
After he was rushed to the hos-
pital last January 14th, it was
announced that he would be lost
for the indoor campaign and
probably for the early part of the
outdoor season.
But Ulvestad returned to the
field hbuse last week, put on his
sweat suit and jogged through'
light warm-ups in anticipation of
competing against Wisconsin.
He's been working out all this
week, and may be able to give Laz
some stiff competition Friday af-

IT IS not difficult to find many
bright spots in the Spartan upset,
however. Dave Neisch performed
brilliantly in both the 400-yard
relay and the 300-yard medley
relay. and John Davies, recently
turned elegible, turned in a ster-
ling winning performance in the
200-yard breaststroke.
George Eyster who has been
improving consistently took the
diving event with a fine display
of steady performing.
Bill Kogan, assistant swimming'
coach, also had high praise for
the performances of Gus Stanger,
and Dick Martin, free-stylers, and
reliable Charlie Moss who does
just about anything. In a meet
held in Detroit, Moss broke the
AAU record for the 100-yard
breaststroke in a 20-yard pool in
the time of 1:00.2.

Ed Buchanan, holder of the
four major titles in the trampo-
line, chalked up the meet's high
total in the final competition
with 279 points awarded for
form, rhythm and continuity.
Individual stars of the meet
were the Wolverines' Pete Barthell
and the Gophers' Doug Sorenson,
both of whom compiled 15 team
points. Herb Loken, brother of the
Michigan coach and co-captain.
of the Minnesota outfit was run-
ner-up with 13 points. Connie Ettl
was in the second place slot in
team points for Michigan with 10.

BARTHELL and Buchanan ac-
counted for the Wolverines' three
firsts. Pete was the winner in the
parallel bar and tumbling and
took a second in the flying rings
and a fifth in the side horse.
Minnsota's three wins were by
Loken in the side horse, Howie
Swanson in the high bar and
Sorenson in the flying rings.
Michigan snapped a three-
meet winning streak in trounc-
ing the visitors from Minneap-
olis. The Gophers under Piper
had acquired a total of 100 wins
years. Loken's crew made the
century mark the stopper.

Colorado College will face a
slightly revamped but undoubtedly
improved Michigan hockey crew
this weekend at the Coliseum.
Two Wolverine newcomers,
Goalie Jack Maclnnes and Center
Earl Keyes, feature the new setup,
and their rather auspicious debuts
between terms indicates they will
give the Westerners plenty ofc
* ~* *
IT WASN'T quite the first ap-
pearance for MaclInnes in the
Blue uniform since he was the
Wolverine netminder back in 1945,
but it was Keyes' initial col-
legiate appearance and he made it
an impressive one.
A sophomore with three years
eligibility ahead of him, Keyes
racked up four goals in the
Michigan Tech series and as-
sisted Wally Grant on two
others to more than live up to
advance expectations.
Coach Heyliger broke up his
vaunted Celley - Burford - Grant,
line and put Keyes between wing-
men Grant and Bob Heathcott.
This was done to give the Wol-
verine attack better balance ex-
cept that Capt. Grant and his two
sophomore cohorts did more than
their share by garnering seven of
the eleven goals in the two game
affair with the Huskies.
MACINNES replaced Jack Mc-1
Donald in the first Minnesota
game and had to be at his best to
protect a slim 2-1 lead, the result
of a rather bad night for the
Wolverine offense.

In the Tech series he had
little hard luck in the firs
game when two of the thre
goals scored against him wer
hardly his fault, but in Satu
day's finale,, a Michigan scorn
splurge made things easy fe
Thus MacInnes has compilec
credible two goal per game ave

outlook for Wolverines in their
forts to get another crack at t
NCAA title.
