Gym Contest
In the first intrasquad gymnas-
tics meet of the year, the Blue
team yesterday defeated their
Maize rivals by a 49 to 45
An audience of about 80 people,
including a contingent of high
school gymnasts from Windsor,
Ontario, watched Coach Newt Lo-
ken's protegees run through their
places on the side horse, side bar,
parallel bars, flying rings, tumbl-
ing and the trampoline,
Ettl made the best showing of the
day, but Loken and the crowd were
particularly impressed by a pair
of freshman gymnasts -- Mar
Johnson and Dick Bergman.
Bartheli showed experience
and form, taking first place on'
the parallel bars, second on the
high bar, flying rings and tum-
bling, and fifth on the side
Pushing Iarthell for top honors
was Ettl who took a'first on the
side horse, tied Barthell for sec-
ond place honors on the flying
rings, and took second- place on the
parallel bars.

JOHNSON showed great promise
as he won the high bar event, and
placed on the parallel bars, flying
rings and in tumbling. Johnson is
a graduate of Windsor H I g h
School. His high school gymnas-
tics coach, Bernie Newman, and
many of his former team mates
were on hand to see him perform.
Bergman tok the flying rings
title by a ood margin. A grad-
uate of the New Trier High
School, Bergman -wa trained by
Joe Giallombardo, a coach who
has developed many Michigan
gymnasts including Barthell,
Johnny Mills and Art Stade -
All members of the present
squad. .
Duncan Erley was victorious in
the tumbling contest, and Ed Bac-
hanan scored his uual impressive
trampoline win.
COACH LOKEY seemed fairly
pleased with the results of the
meet, but remarked that Michigan
has much re-building to do in the
field of tumbling and trampolin-
Loken said that the graduation
of Gordon Levenson~ and Tom
Tillman, members of last year's
varsity' squad, has left a ap
which will be difficult to fill.
Judges for the meet were Coach
Newman T'ilman, and Bill Par-
rish. Another meet will be held
next Friday at 4:00 p.m. in the
small gymnasium of the Intra-
mural Building.

IT WAS ALSO announced that
Ed Buchanan, varsity gymnastics
star, had been named head Michi-
gan cheerleader for net year.

A much-improved Miami U~ni-
versity squad faces Michigan's
question-mark basketball team at
Yost Fieldhouse tonight, with
game time scheduled for 7:30.
The Redskins, who succumbed
to the Wolverines last year by a
record 79-48 score, will field much
the same starting five as they
did in that debacle, with the ad-
dition of a platoon of fast, strong
MIAMI only managed to win
five games during last season's
all-too-long twenty-game sche-
dule. This year, coach John L.
Brickels expects better things
from his veteran-studded team.
With Michigan rated a notch
or two lower in strength than
they were in 1949-50, tonight's
game may turn into a real bat-
Brickels plans to use his veter-
ans on one squad and his sopho-
mores on another, with the hope
of running his opponents into the

Center Frank Pettica at 6' 3" is

wards, Brickels will probably
start Eddie Greisinger and Dan
Macklin, both 6' 1",.
