Wolverine Sextet Freezes Out North Dakot


Michigan Natators Face
Buckeyes Today at IM

At 3 p.m. this afternoon, swim-
rding fans will be treated to the
top dual meet of the short Mic'ii
gan home season when Ohio State
chailey ges the Wolverine nata-
tors in the IM pool.
The Buckeyes sport both the
J j50 Big Tep and NC AA Cham-
pVonshifs and though highly fav-
ored to win today's contest they
have been promised a tough battle
by Matt Mann and hi;s swimmer.
ONLY THE back stroke is con-
s:dered a "sure thing" for tha
Buckeyes who are represented in
this event by the sensational Jack
Taylor, who holds the American
Intercollegiate record for 100
yards, and Bill Sonner, who is
Conference champion at that dis-
In the breast stroke, however,
the Wolverines can possibly ov-
ercome this deficit. The ever-
improving Stu Elliott will team
up with the dependable Austral-
ian, John Davies, in an attempt
to beat out a strong OSU entry
in JoseBalmores.
In the free-style events, the
feature race will probably develop
' between Chuck Stephanos of Ohio
State and "Michigan's Wally Jef-
fries in the 440, and also possibly
in the 220. Luis Childs can also be
a threat for Michigan in the 440
f now that Taylor is concentrating
on the back stroke and won't ap-
pear in this event.
AT 220 YARDS, Bunny Nakama
of OSU and Wayne Leengran and
John Ries of Michigan may be pos-
sible point-makers for their re-
spective squads.
The sprints will also be a battle,
while overall strength in this cate-

gory will decide the important 400
yard relay.
The Wolverines boast a strong
foursome in Captain Dave Nei-
sch, Dick Martin, Jim White and
Bob Byberg. Ohio State will pre-
sent Herb Kobayashi and Frank
Dooley to combat this group,
supported most likely by Bruce
Ransom and Dick Webber.
Michigan divers Jim Hartman
and Frank Keller will gamely try
to break into the famous spring-
board dynasty consistently built
by Buckeye Coach Mike Peppe,
which is led this year by Joe Mar-
mo who, as a sophomore last year,
placed second to the great Bruce
Harlan in the Big Ten champion-
Iarlan, as well as Hobart Bil-
lingsley, Jack Calhoun and John
Simpson have left the OSU diving
scene, but Peppe is sure to have
able replacements for them.

Rough Iowa
Five Meets
'I'? Tonight
Wolverines Still
Seeking_3rd Win
Three becomes the magic num-
ber for Wolverine cagers at Iowa
City tonight.
They will try for the third time
to record their third Conference
decision when they meet Iowa's
Hawkeyes who rule as favorites
to push Michigan further into the
loop basement.
The Hawks are in a third place
knot with Wisconsin, which Mich-
igan visits on Monday night. Like
the Badgers they have won six
while losing four against league
ies over Iowa. Indiana and North-
western accounted for the other
pair of Hawkeye setbacks.
The Wolverines must battle a
taller quintet, one which aver-
ages better than six-four, led
by Frank Calsbeek( 6-6) who is
the captain and forward. He
has tallied 15.3 points per game
so far.
His running mate is Chuck
Darling, center, who also has pro-,
duced better than 15 per contest.
The other forward is Herb
* * *
THE HOME TEAM'S lineup is
completed by guards Murray Rost
and Bob Clifton. The latter will
be remembered as the star of last
year's Michigan-Iowa clash here.
In the last six meetings be-
tween the two schools at Iowa
City the Hawkeyes have won
five. If the visitors manage to
break the trend tonight they
will do it with the Big Ten
team which rates lowest in ac-
curacy from the field.
Michigan is saddled with a pa-
thetic percentage of .262. It's free
throw average of .563 is also the
league's lowest.
Just who will play for Ernie
McCoy tonight is not certain.
Doug Lawrence and Dick Wil-
liams may get another chance
or Bob Olson and Tom Tiernan
could get the call.
Jim Skala and Leo VanderKuy
on the front line and Captain
Charlie Murray are almost sure
starters. They give the team its
small measure of stability.
VanderKuy's personal record
shows a gapie average of 14 points
and a shooting percentage of .309
which isn't bad for a last place
