Ohio's Miler Truex Sets
Record T o Beat MceEwen &





* * * *

Michigan Cagers Bow
Before Wildcats, 76-53

Setting a new Field House record
of 4:10.7, lanky Len Truex of Ohio
State handed Michigan's Don Mc-
dwen the first defeat of his col-
legiate career, but the Buckeyes
were defeated by the home team,
Depth paid off for the Wolver-
ines who slammed both hurdle
events and placed second and third
in five others. The Bucks produced
seven winning runners, to account
for 35 of th6ir total points.-

McEWEN RAN A strong race,
and had the lead from the firing
of the starting gun until the three-
quarter mark. At that point,
Truex cut loose with an early fin-
ishing kick and jumped into the
The two sophomores were
A matching strides as the gun
sounded sending them into the
final lap. They entered the back
stretch with McEwen still push-
ing hard, but as they came off
the last turn, the Buckeye had
established about a 10 yard lead.
MICHIGAN'S first win of the
meet was provided by Art Henrie,
'who nosed out Fred Johnson of
Ohio in the 60-yard dash. Other
Wolverine winners were Don Hoov-
er in the high hurdles, Jim Mit-
chell in the lows, Ed Ulvestad in
the pole vault, and consistent
Charlie Fonville in the shot.
Ulvestad, who had his appen-
dix removed just six weeks ago,
set a new meet record by clear-
ing the bar at 13 feet, 8 inches.
Michigan's captain, Jus Wil-
liams ran the best two mile of his
indoor career, but couldn't match
the explosive burst of speed fired
by Ohio's Frank D'Arcy who took
the lead on the gun lap.
D'Arcy, Conference champ in
1948, turned in an excellent
9:21.8 performance. Williams ran

second in 9:26, with sophomore
Aaron Gordon, running the two-
mile for the first time, finishing
third in the 9:29.
The only double winner in the
meet, Truex came back after a
rest of less than an hour and
threaded his way up from last
place at the % mark to win the
half-mile in the excellent time of

CHICAGO-Northwestern's low-
ly Wildcats handed Michigan its
worst defeat of a sordid season in
the first game of a Chicago Sta-
dium basketball doubleheader here
last night.
The score was 76-53.
* * *
IT WAS THE seventh setback
in ten Western Conference games
for the Wolverines, plunging them
deeper into the second division.
The Wildcats had little diffi-
culty after the first ten minutes.
Their agile forward combina-
tion of Ray Ragelis and Jake
Fendley completely bewildered
Michigan's defenders to register
24 and 22 points respectively.
Northwestern's center, Jim
Krause, ripped open the scoring
on the game's first shot. Mack
Suprunowicz matched him 20 sec-
onds later and the two teams
continued to trade baskets evenly.
The Wolverines assumed their only

FIGHTING FINISH-Caught at the finish of last night's 60-yard
dash are (1. to r.) Art Henrie, Fred Johnson, Pierre Miller and
Gene Cole. Henrie won the race, Johnson was second and Cole
nosed Miller out of third place.

lead of the evening at 5:45 when
Suprunowicz converted two free
THEN WALLY Horvatich put
the Wildcats-in front to stay on a
breakaway. Ragelis and Fendley
kept adding to their margin and
Northwestern walked off with a
34-22 halftime edge.
The entire lineup of the los-
ing team was cold on offense
throughout the first 20 minutes.
Seldom did Michigan receive two
scoring opportunities in a row.
Leo VanderKuy did not register
a field goal until late in the
second half.
The game developed into a com-
plete rout immediately following
the intermission. Ragelis and
Fendley built up a 43-25 edge as
Wolverine play became more and
more erratic. Wildcat captain,
Bob Hughes,, crushed Michigan
hopes by tossing in four consecu-
tive fielders.
* * *
FENDLEY followed with three
in a row and Northwestern led,
58-28. Michigan coach Ernie Mc-
Coy began emptying his bench of
reserves even though 10;; min-
utes of playing time remained.
Jim Skala and VanderKuy each
gathered 11 counters for Michigan.
The latter made most of his at
the free throw line, however. Char-
ley Murray was held to a lone
fielder and four points.
Michigan meets Ohio State, who
clinched the championship last
night, in an anti-climactic game
here tomorrow night. Ohio cinch-
ed its title by virtue of Illinois'
win over Wisconsin, 76-58.
Since Illinois defeated Wiscon-
sin last night, the Buckeyes are
certain of the title and are the
choice to represent Section Three
and the Big Nine in the NCAA
playoffs in March.
Ohio State has bowed to
Bradley and DePaul in non-
conference competition and has
been beaten only by defending
champion Illinois in Big' Nine
THE TEAM has converted 35.3%
of its field goal efforts with the
record high of 49.1% being posted
Monday against Indiana.

MADISON - Michigan had on-
ly one opponent to contend with
in what was supposed to be a
triangular gymnastic meet and
thus rolled to their fourth straight
dual -win at the expense of the
Uiliversity of Wisconsin, 54-41,
last night.
A highly-touted tumbling crew
from Iowa, the team that was
scheduled to complete the triangle,'
never showed up here. Reports in.-
dicated that the Hawkey es were
stranded somewhere between Iowa
City and Madison by weather con-

usual firsts in the parallel bars and
tumbling and copped a second in
the side horse. But 4lie perfor-
mance of the Wolverinc captain
was overshadowed by a personal
dual between Connie Etti of1
Michigan and Captain \ John
Matheus of the Badgers.


Etti and Matheus are per-
sonal friends and together com-
prised one of Milwaukee's finest
combinations when the two
,Are in high school. Both won
numerous interscholastic cham-
Matheus came off the better in
last night's contest. The Wisconsin
ace scored 20 team points with
victories in the side horse, and
flying rings, and seconas in the
high and parallel bars.
* * *
ETTL HAD the satisfaction of
beating his high =school chum in
the high bar, but finished behind
him in the parallel bars and fly-
ing rings. The sophomore sensa-
tion garnered 13 points for his
evening's work, based on the first
in the high bar, second in the
flying rings and third in parallel
Matheus was high point man
for both teams. Barthell's 16

points gave him runner-up hon-
ors. Etti was third in the scor-
ing for both teams.
Michigan lost an opportunity to
sweep the trampoline event for
the fourth straight time when
Gordie Levenson fell off the appa-
ratus on his first trick and had
to be content with a fifth. Ed
Buchanan, four-title holder, took
the first to remain undefeated
this season. Tom Tillman grabbed
the second spot.
* * *
formances were displayed by
Barthell and Tillman in tumbling.
Both did double twists and back
flips to a stand for the finish-up
in their routines. The five judges
were enough impressed to award
them first and second for their
Michigan took four of the six
first places, Matheus getting the
other two.
