Thinclads K
McEwen T ies His Two.
Mile Record in 9:04.6



Don T 'cEwen made his final
Yost Field House appearance a
successful one by tying his own
two mile world indoor dirt track
record as Michigan breezed to an
easy 75-34 win over Lapless 0hio
State last night.
The flying Canadian turned on
a tremendous finish kick to ring
up a 9:04.6 effort and almost lap
runner-up Bill Hickman of Michi-
gan and OSU's Robert Coldren,
who ran third.
FOR THE Maize and Blue, who
captured eight-firsts and ran one-
two in seven of those, the meet
was no iiore than a warm-up for
the Big Ten indoor championship
next /riday and Saturday.
The opening event, the mile
run, characterized the meet as
John Moule, George Jayne and
Roy Christiansen crossed the
finish line in that order for
Michigan. The time was a medi-
ocre 4:22.5.
In the 880 the Wolverines also
snared all honors. John Ross es-
tablished a new dual meet record
with a 1:54 performance, finishing
.just, ahead of Aaron Gordon.
Chuck Whiteaker rounded out the
winning threesome.
ONCE AGAIN Van Bruner and
Wally Atchison parlayed their tal-
ents to run one-two,, respectively,
in both the 65-yard high and low
hurdles. Bruner's times were 7.5 in
the lows and 8.0 in the highs, the
latter effort tying the dual meet
record set by OSU's Bill Wright in
Jim Love placed third in the
lows to give Michigan another
clean sweep, but the Bucks'
Glenn Young cracked the ice
by slipping in to the show posi-
tion in the highs.
Ohio State showed signs of life
by finishing second and third in
the 440 behind Jack Carroll, who
turned in a respectful 49.2 timing.
Gene Cole, and Frank Zubovich
were the lads who performed the
feat for the Bucks.
* * ,
effort was good enough to take
winner's laurels in the 60-yard
dash. The Maize and Blue bearer
edged out teammate Ross Coates
and Ohio State's Dave Thomas,
who ran tWo-three respectively.
Ohio State garnered its only
first in the running events when
the crack Michigan mile relay
team dropped out of the race.

George Jacobi, the lead-off man,
was well in front when he pulled
a leg muscle rounding a turn
and was unable to continue.
In the field events the Wolver-
ines didn't fare so well, as the
Bucks grabbed three of the four
events. Jerry Welbourn's 13'6"
performance easily beat Michi-
gan's Roger Maugh and Pat Mon-
tagano, who tied for second at the
12 foot level.
'* * * -
FRESHMAN Peron Dudard of
Ohio State took high jumping
honors with a 6'2" effort. Bob
Evans, Howard Liverance and
Dave Heinzman of Michigan all
tied for second at six feet.
The Bucks' other first came in
the broad jump as the result of
Ken Thorpe's 22 feet leap. Jack
Rose of Michigan finished sec-
ond, while OSU's Norman Jack-
son placed third.
Big Fritz Nilsson kept up his
wining ways and saved the Maize
and Blue from a blanking in the
field events by heaving the shot
54'1" for top honors.
TeammatebTom Johnson came
in second behind Nilsson, and
southpaw Joe Morgan slid into the
third spot. Otis Chandler, former
Stanford great now in the Air
Force, threw the shot 53'7" in an
exhibition match with Nilsson.

'M' Gymnast
Special to The Daily
Michigan State's highly vaunted
gymnasts made it six in a row last
night as they plowed Michigan un-
der by a 57-39 margin at Yost
Fieldhouse in their march toward
a Big Ten championship at
Bloomington next week.
Freshman Carl Rintz led the
way for MSC with 19 points while
the much feared Bob Feldmeier
had to take a back seat with 14
points. This, however, brought
Feldmeier's season scoring total to
95 points.

MICHIGAN'S performance was
dismal from the start of the meet.
Duncan Erley, Remo Boila, and
Don Hurst were all tripped up on
the trampoline and could salvage
only fourth and fifth place while
"Sticks" Rowland flew off the
side horse and Lee Krumbholz
spoiled a beautiful performance on
the parallel bars ry slipping off,
Harry Luchs and Duncan Er-
ley provided the only bright
spots in the Wolverine attack.
Luchs, showing his usual good
form, took the parallel bar event
by edging MSC Capt. Feldmeier
and captured fourths on the
high bar' and flying rings. Er-
ley's terrific tumbling brought
cheers from the audience as the
scorers gave him 281 of a pos-
sible 308 points. He also man-
aged fourth place on the tramp-
A John Walker, Al Hannas, and
Tom Mullineaux combination
swept the first three places for
MSC on the trampoline while
Rintz, Russ Paul, and Feldmeier
teamed up for the same spots on
the flying rings. Feldmeier and
Rintz also finished one-two on the
high bar.

Rintz again but Krumbholz grab-
bed a second place and Capt. Con-
nie Ettl came through for a third
to cut down State's margin.
Frank Adams and Don Hurst
gave Erley a lot of support on the
tumbling mats by picking up a
third and fourth behind him. This
and the parallel bars were the only
events in which the Wolverines
outscored the Spartans; Mary
Johnson and Krumbholz taking
fourth and fifth places behind
Luchs on the bars.

pass-out from Doug Mullen who
grabbed the puck after a wide
shot by Alex McClellan.
Twenty seconds later, Keyes
notched his second goal of the
night to put the game on ice for
the Wolverines. His goal came
after John McKennell got the
draw on a face-off in the Spartan
zone and passed over to Keyes
who blasted the puck past Reid

Both teams played the next few
minutes with depleted forces, as
penalties were handed out in
wholesale numbers to both teams.
All told, 16 penalties were assessed,
9 to Michigan.

goal late in the second period after
Ron Martinson grabbed ' Heath-

Buckeye Freestyler s Tops in Big Ten

In Ann Arbor, it's

(Editor's Note--This is the first in a
series of stories spotlighting the
Western Conference swimming meet,
scheduled for March 6, 7, and S at
East Lansing, Michigan.)
Three record-breaking free-styl-
ers promise to give Ohio State a
decided advantage over the rest
of the Conference in both the
sprints, and distance events this
T coming weekend.
Buckeyes Dick Cleveland, Ford
Konno and Jack Taylor will rule
as favorites in all of the 'ree-style
events from the 50 up to the long
1500-meter race.,
., . *
MICHIGAN'S strength in the
free-style races will rest more on
its depth than on individual stars.
Don Hill, Tom Brenner, Dick Mar-
tin, Bumpy Jones, Wally Jeffries,
and Wayne Leengran are all po-
tential point-getters in the sprints
or distances.
Hill will in all probability
closely follow Cleveland across
the finish line in both the 50
and 100, as he did last week.
champion in both the sprints, the
Spartans' Clark Scholes, will have
to go someif he hopes to retain
his crowns. Both Cleveland and
Hill have defeated him in dual
meets earlier this year.
Other sprinters who may
break into the 'scoring include
Michigan's Benner and Martin,
Tom Payette of Michigan State,
and Northwestern's Bud Wallen
and Keith Peterson.
In the 220 and 440-yard free-
style races Konno seems to have

the events as well under control
as does his teammate Cleveland in
the shorter races. Konno set a
meet record of 4:31.8 for the 440
and swam a 2:06.6 220-yard race
which broke the Ohio State pool
record for the distance, against
the Wolverines.
s * .
JONES should give the Buckeye
distanceman a good fight in both
events, however.
Once again Michigan State
finds itself in the odd position
ofclaiming a Big Ten champion
who rates no better than third
in the Conference this year.
Bert McLachlan, winner of both
the 220 and 440 last year, was
beaten decisively by Jones in
both distances two weeks ago.
The Wolverines' Jeffries, who
placed fourth in the 440 and fifth
in the 220 in 1951, can be expected
to add to the Michigan point
output in the distances.

to repeat his win of last year
when he set a new Big Ten record
for the distance. Leengran, who
placed fifth in 1951, is Michigan's
hope in the race.
The Wolverines' best' opportun-
ity for a victory in the free-style
events will come in the 400-yard
free-style relay, where the Michi-
gan depth should prove to be a
decisive factor.
Michigan beat Ohio State in
the dual meet last week in the
relay, but was disqualified when
Hill missed a turn.
