'M', Buckeyes Grapple to Draw

Ohioans Sink Michigan;
Garner Easy 55-29 Win

* * *

By JOE EPSTEIN
The Ohio State University gym-
nastics team squeezed out a 49 /2
to 461/2 win over the Wolverine
squad yesterday afternoon, but
the two outstanding performers
of the day were a pair of Michi-
gan gymnasts - Connie Ettl and
Captain Ed Buchanan.
Ettl performed consistently well'
throughout the meet to earn top
scoring honors of the day with a
first place on the parallel bars, a
tie with Buckeye Don Schimpf
for high bar laurels, a third on the
flying rings and a side horse
fourth place.
* .
BUCHANAN, holder of several
national trampoline. titles, dis-
played rare form to win the
trampoline event over a talented
trio of OSU sophomore "tramp-
men'-Dennis Harget, Bob Mar-
tin and Bob Henning. Buchanan
brought the crowd to their feet
with his routine which includes
the difficult back triple twist, a
trick which only three collegiate
gymnasts can perform.
"The better team won; we did
better than we thought we
could," said Michigan coach
Newt Loken. Loken attributed
the loss to Buckeye supremacy
in the tumbling and trampoline
events.
Joe Hewlett, Ohio State coach,
felt that his team did "not live
up to expectations." He named
Harget and Martin as outstanding
Buckeye prospects for, the future,
explaining that neither of those
boys were "up" for the Michigan
meet.

IMICHIGAN'S Jeff Knight per-
formed creditably to take an un-
disputed first on the side horse.
The Maize and Blue virtually
sweep this event as Bob Checkley
was third and Ettl fourth.
On the high bar, both Ettl
and Schimpf went through their
routines in a manner as nearly
perfect as is ever seen in ama-
teur gymnastics. Their point
score was identical, and was the
highest individual point score of
the meet-275 out of a possible
300.
Ettl's parallel bars win was due
to another very high score-273.
Ohio State's Andy Breiner was a
close second with 271, and Wally
Niemann of Michigan took third.'

BUCKEYE Co - Captain Jack
Thompson, one of four lettermen
on the OSU team, captured top
honors in the flying rings con-
test. John Mills of Michigan,
showing tremendous improvement
over past performances, was sec-
ond, with Ettl and Breiner tied
for third.

Old Marks fall
As MSC Wins
Over Hoosiers
By The Associated Press
EAST LANSING, MICH.-() -
Michigan State swimmers bet-
tered three Big Ten times while
beating Indiana ."University 56 to
37 in a Western Confernce dual
pool meet here yesterday.
The Spartans took first in all
but three of the ten events.
* * *
CLARK SCHOLES of Detroit
did the 100-yard free style in
:50.4, best Western Conference
time in the event was :51.3 by
Wally Ris of Iowa in 1949. The
time also was a new dual meet,
varsity and pool record.
Sophomore Bert McLachlin
of Denver, Colo., swimming the
gruelling distance for the first
time, hung up a good mark of
18:41.8 in the 1500-meter free
style. The best big ten time for
the stretch as 18:58.1 by Jack
Taylor of Ohio State in 1950.
The time also set a new Dual
Meet, Varsity and Pool record.
The old pool record of 19:43.4
as set by Rene Chateau of Yale in
1941.
A MICHIGAN STATE relay
team of Dave Hoffman, Jim Quig-
ley, Clarke Scholes and George
Hoogerhyde swam the 400-yard
free style relay in 3:27.8. The
Western Conference record is
3:29.2 by Iowa in 1949. This also
was a new Dual Meet, Varsity and
Pool record.
Although the Western Con-
ference times were bettered,
they will not go into the record
books because the marks were
not made in conference champ-
ionship competition.
Larry Meyer was the big point-
getter for Indiana with wins in
the 200-yard backstroke and the
150-yard individual medley. Frank.
Pisacreta of Indiana swam the 50-
yard free style in :23.3 to set a
new dual meet record.'
New Dual Meet records also
were set in the 300-Yard Medley
Relay, 220-Yard Free Style and
200-Yard Free Style and 200-Yard
Breaststroke, all by Michigan
State.

By CY CARLTON
Michigan and Ohio State battled
to a 12-12 tie yesterday afternoon
in the final wrestling match of
the season at Yost Field House due
mainly to the shrewdness of one
Casey Fredericks.
The aforementioned Fredericks,
coach of the Columbus matmen,
moved three of his wrestlers down
one weight in a battle of twd un-
beaten squads, in an attempt to
bring an end to a nine match
Michigan winning streak.
ALL THREE of the men who
were "starved" by Fredericks and
moved down, won their matches to
provide the margin by which the
OSU matmen gained the tie.
Two Michigan grapplers fin-
ished the season undefeated.
Larry Nelson at 123 pounds won
his tenth straight match of the
season as he whalloped Bill
Weber of the Buckeyes, 10-6 and
Jack Gallon finished his Sopho-
more season at 130 pounds with
one tie and nine wins as he
scored a takedown in the final
ten seconds to beat George
Molodet, an experienced light-
weight, 3-1, in the closest match
of the'afternoon.
In the 137 pound class, Michi-
gan ran afoul as a result of
Fredericks' sagacity. Ohio's Ron
Lax moved down from 147 pounds
pummelled Joe Scandura in a 15-4
rout to score the first Buckeye
points of the meet.
DAVE SPACE went to the mat
at 147 pounds for Michigan and
found himself confronted with
Bryce Keough, OSU Captain and
defending Conference champ at
155 pounds. Keough proved too
much for the Wolverine grappler
and won, 7-3, as a result of a
strong second period.
A 9-7 loss to Fred McLean,
oustanding Buckeye 167 pound-
er, "starved" to ,57 pounds for
the occasion, was the fate of
Michigan captain Bill Stapp.
Stapp lost the match via two rid-
ing time points awarded to Mc-
Lean.
Michigan wrestlers won decisive
victories at 167 and 177 pounds.
At 167, Bud Holcombe shutout Ken
Kistner, a sophomore wrestling his

first competitive match, 9-0. Need-
ing a pin to win, Michigan coach
Cliff Keen sent Holcombe and Joe
Planck out to try for a fall and
the veteran grappler almost
obliged, having several close calls.
IT WAS MUCH the same story
at 177 pounds as Michigan's Joe
Planck won easily, beating Jackc
Milligan, 10-2. Milligan narrowly
missed being pinned by the Michi-
gan grappler several times.
Planck's win assured Michigan
of a draw if Art Dunne could
escape being pinned in the
heavyweight match. This could
prove difficult since Dunne's op-
ponent, Bill Miller, OSU defend-
ing champ had won each of his
season's bouts via the fall route.
However, Miller was unable to
locate the shoulders of the speedy
Dunne although he finished on the
long end of a 12-0 score. Dunne's
showing clinched the tie for Mich-
igan.
This -match left the Wolverines
and Buckeyes the only undefeated
teams in the.Western Conference.
The two should be favored to do
battle with Purdue and Michigan'
State in a four way skirmish for
the diaden at Evanston next
weekend.

The Lawrence Tech Blue Devils
,trengthened their National Invi-

feating Niagara's Eagles, also an
NIT prospect, 69-53.
It was the 21st victory in 23
starts and the sixth in the past
eight days for the speedy De-
troiters, who were closing out their
season.
The Detroiters sped to a nine-

MINORS TO MAJORS?
Trautman Vies for Chandler's Position

By GEORGE FLINT
Ohio State's powerful and bal-
anced swimming team defeated
Michigan easily at the Varsity pool
here yesterday.
The score was 55-29.
* * . *
THE BUCKEYES took every
event but the free style relay and
the 50 on their way to the win.
Although no swimmer com-
pleted a double win in the meet,
the splashing of the smoothly-,
stroking Jack Taylor and cap-
tain Herb Kobayashi was instru-
mental in the Buckeyes' formid-
able margin.
For Michigan, it was a grey day,
but Wolverines Dick Martin, who
won the 50-yard free style, and
Stew Elliott and Wally Jeffries,
who grabbed seconds in the breast-
stroke and the 440, gave the Maize
and Blue their few bright mo-
ments.

passed up the 220 to swim a leg
of the iedley relay, came up
with one of his very best races
as he took second to Taylor in
the 440.
With Taylor swimming an excel-
lent 4:44.6, the dogged Michigan
free styler kept with the Buckeye
ace for 300 yards, and wasn't far
back at the finish. Jeffries' clock-
ing was around the 4:50 mark.
- * * *
WOLVERINE Wayne Leengran
also showed improvement in this
race, taking third ahead of Ohio's
Charley Stephanos.
The Ohio State diving dynasty
looked to be in its usual stable
condition, as a red-haired picture
of grace named Al Coffey defeated
his teammate and Nationi AAU
champion, Joe Marino, by a 12-
point spread. Coffey's sixth dive, a
double twisting one and one-half,
forward one and one-half earned
him the amazing point score of 65.
The Buckeyes' score in the meet
was identical with that by which
Michigan State defeated Michigan
at East Lansing earlier this sea-
son. Ohio has already beaten the
Spartans in a dual meet this year.'.

ONE POOL RECORD was set.
Ohio State's second best back-
stroker (Taylor is ordinarily no. 1),
Bill Sonner, posted a 2:14.4 in the
200-yard event-a new distance in
the Big Ten this year.
The Michigan victory in the
400-yard free style was some-
thing of an upset, since the
Butckeye sprint corps is as strong
as anybody's.
Michigan's Jim White led OSU's
Charley White by a head at the
end of their leg. Bob Byberg turned
the race into a runawy in his leg,
as he pulled away from the Buck-
eyes' Sonner to open up a 1 2
body-length lead. Martin and cap-
tain Dave Neisch held on to the
margin and the Wolverines had
won in 3:32.4.
* *, *
ELLIOTT'S SECOND to the
Ohio State .sophomore, Gerald
Holan, was something of a sur-
prise, but Holan's last-lap kick
was too much for the capable
Michigan breaststroker.

By The Associated Press
University of Detroit officials
announced yesterday that Dutch
Clark, ex Detroit Lions star and
Titan backfield coach, had been
named to take over the head
coaching chores vacated by the
resignation of Chuck Baer.
. Along with the announcement
of Clark's appointment came word
that Detroit athletic -director,
Lloyd Brazil, would retain his po-
sition in the Titan athletic setup.
THE WHOLESALE SHUFFLE
which brought Baer's resignation
caused similar action on the part
of line coach John Shad, and
backfield mentor Ed Barbour.
The Very Rev. Celestin J.
Steiner, S. J., University Presi-
dent, said Clark would name
three assistants soon. An ath-
letic Business Manager also will
Pue appointed later, he said.

Fr. Steiner said Clark would
have "all the authority in the
world to stand or fall on his own"
and would not be responsible in
any way to Lloyd Brazil.
T H E SCHOOL'S ATHLETIC
setup has. been marked in recent
years by jurisdictional squabbles,
which were believed responsible
for Baer's resignation.
The length of Clark's contract
has not been decided yet, said
Fr. Steiner, but will run for
"more than one year." His sal-
ary was not revealed.
Thirty-five persons were re-
ported to have applied for the job.
Clark's , first venture into pro
ball was with Portsmouth, Ohio.
He came to Detroit in 1934 when
the Lions took over the Ports-
mouth franchise in thehNational
League.'

By GAYLE TALBOT
PHOENIX-(AP)-George Traut-
man, the boss of the minors, still
is very much in the running for
Baseball Commissioner. As a mat-
ter of fact, he almost certainly is
the hottest of the three remain-
ing candidates as of this moment.
The men who are determined to
oust Albert B. Chandler from the
$65,000 a year post fully intend to
go into the March 12 meeting at
Miami Beach with a single name
to present to their fellow club
owners.
* * * '
TRAUTMAN'S CHANCES of be-
ing the anti-Chandler candidate
are best, this reporter learns, be-
cause he is ready and eager to en-
ter the lists now, without waiting
for Chandler to resign or, perhaps,
complete his term more than a
year from now. James J. Farley is
said to be willing to take the job
but not to compete with Chandler
for it.
The anti-Chandler forces
think they know exactly what
the Commissioner will try to do
when the meeting opens. He will,
of course, be presiding.
"He'll try to get a quick vote on
his own name, before our man can
be placed in nomination," one of
the group predicts. "But we've got
him stopped there. He can't force
another vote on himself without
getting unanimous consent, which
he won't get.

"YOU CAN BET that every time
a vote is taken our man's name will
be in the pot, too. Chandler hasn't
got an outside chance of ever hav-
ing his contract renewed, in my
opinion."
The informant insists that the
anti-Chandler faction has pick-
ed up at least two new members
since the meeting at St. ]Peters-
burg last December. The final
vote there was 9 to 7 in favor. of
keeping Chandler in office. A
three-quarters majority, or 12
votes, is necessary to elect a
Commissioner or to renew his
seven-year contract.
So, if Chandler's opponents have
indeed gained a pair of recruits
and enter the meeting holding a
9-7 or even 10-6 bulge, they still
will be short of the vote needed to
install their candidate.
But that doesn't worry them.
They feel completely confident
that a secret ballot or two will
make it plain that Chandler can-
not hope to win, and that the re-
quisite number of his supporters
then will quietly alter their votes
and it will all be over.
What it boils down to is that
several club owners in particular
President Fred Saigh of the St.
Louis Cardinals, dislike Chandler
intensely. Most of those who are
going along with Saigh now are
doing so because they have a feel-
ing they need a new foreman.
"If you really want to know the

truth," one of them says "it
wouldn't have happened if Happy
hadn't demanded that new con-
tract more than a year before his
present one expires. If he had
gone along quietly and finished out
his contract I don't think there's
a doubt he would have been hand-
ed another one."
