Clotworthy, OSU Diver,
Leads Loop Competition

By ED SMITH
Possibly the strongest Big Ten
track team ever assembled will
wear the Orange and Blue of Illi-
isois at the Big Ten indoor track
meet to be held at Champaign this
weeknd.
The Illini are rated favorites on
the basis of their championship
performers and superb depth..
FOCUS of Illinois' strength is
the field events, particularly in the
pole vault and high jump. Three
of the country's best collegiate
vaulters lead the team.
Dick Coleman, who consistent-
ly has cleared better than 14
feet heads the squad. He is ably
assisted by Dick Calish and Dale
Foster.
The high jump is another Illini
strongpoint. Tom Floyd, last year's
champ, has returned to the squad,
but he is no longer the top man.
Every time out this year, Ron Mit-
chell, a lanky freshman, has top-
ped his performance. Mitchell is
capable of clearing over 6 feet 5
inches.
FLOYD IS NOT the only Big
Ten champ to relinquish his hold
as top man on the Illini squad. Joe
Gonzalez, last year's indoor and
outdoor titlist is having his hands
full with sophomore Willie Wil-
liams.
Williams, though still in his
first year of varsity competition,
is touted as the 'only man in the
conference able to press North-
western's national sprint cham-
pion Jim Golliday.
Williams is rated a good bet to

win in the low hurdles, where he
will get assistance from sophomore
Joe Corley and freshman Willie
Thompson.
* * *
IN THE HIGHS the Illini have
timber toppers to spare. Joel Mc-
Nulty leads the returning letter-
men, but Corley and Thompson
are newcomers to watch.
The Illini are perhaps the
strongest at the middle distances
of 440. and 880 yards. Their tbp
quarter miler is the fabulous
Cirilo McSween.
Last campaign the Panama City
junior ran a 48.8 indoors and a
47.7 quarter outdoors, times that
should win the conference.
In the half mile Illinois has four
possible point getters. Henry Cry-
er, who has already run a 1:53.8
this season, leads the contingent.
ANOTHER junior, Stacey Siders,
was clocked in a 1:53.3 half out-
There will be a meeting of the
'M' Club tonight at 7:30 p.m.
in the 'M' room in Yost Field
House.
-Bud Holcombe
doors. Dick Reynolds, third in last
years Big Ten outdoors, and soph-
omore Gene Maynard round out
the group.
The all important mile relay
finds the Illini squad at its, best.
Coach Leo Johnson will have a
great choice in who to run, but at
the moment his top men appear to
be McSween, Cryer, Siders, and
Ralph Fessendon.

Bob Clotwortny, Ohio State's
diminutive diving star, is the odds-
on favorite to retain the two West-
ern Conference titles which he won
last year.
The five-foot three-inch junior
from Westfield, New Jersey is ex-
pected to have serious competition
only from teammate Joe Marino
and Purdue's Bill Clingenpeel at
the conference meet this weekend
in East Lansing.
* * *
CLOTWORTHY is the present
National AAU low-board cham-
pion, while Marino is a former
NAAU title holder in that event.
Clingenpeel turned in an excellent
performance in last year's Big
Ten meet to finish in second place
behind Clotworthy.
Nevin Phillips of Indiana is
also figured to garner points in
the low-board competition.
The big three, Clothworthy,
Marino and Clingenpeel, also dom-
inate the high-board diving pic-
ture. Michigan State has Ken
Coyne, who may also figure in the
scoring, and Michigan will send
the promising Evanston, Illinois
freshman, Jim Walters, but the
superior experience of the Buckeye

duo is expected to overshadow all
opposition.
"BUMPY" JONES and Rusty
Carlisle figure to give Michigan al
big edge in the 150 yard individual
medley. Jones is currently co-
holder with LaSalle's Joe Verdeur
of the American and NCAA record
of 1:30.8.
. Larry Meyer of Indiana, Bob
Gawboy of Purdue and Bruce
Aldrich of Michigan State are
all strong contenders in the race.
In the 300 yard medley relay the
Ohio State team of Jack Taylor,
Gerry Holan and Dick Cleveland
has already broken the world's rec-
ord of 2:49.1 by a full two seconds.
Michigan is only a distant threat
to the Buckeyes, since the Wolver-
ines' best time this season is 2:52.9.
In the recent dual meet with
Ohio, the Michigan entry of Jones,
John Davies and Tom Benner edg-
ed the Buckeyes' Taylor, Holan and
Herb Kobayashi in an extremely
close race. For the Big Ten com-
petition however, Mike Peppe will
substitute Cleveland for Kobay-
ashi, and accordingly the differ-
ence in the free style leg of the
relay should put the Buckeyes out
of reach.

Indiana'sHoosiers could be
the darkhorse of the Western Con-
ference Wrestling Championships
here this weekend.
The Hoosiers, although not re-
cognized as a powerful title threat
before the start of the season, have
developed some prominent grap-
plers in the course of their regular
season dual meets.
* * * .
THE WOLVERINES lost an early
season decision to Indiana, 17-11.
In that meet both Miles Lee and
All basketball lettermen are
requested to report at Rentsch-
ler's Studio, 319. E.. Huron
Street, at 12 o'clock, noon, to-
morrow for the squad picture.
-Ernie McCoy
Larry Nelson were unable to grap-
ple because of early season in-
juries.
Only last weekend Michigan
State's Spartans felt the blow of
the Hoosier axe, 14-12.
Indiana is paced by three wres-
tlers who were undefeated at the
end of the first six meets, and two
who had lost only once up to that
time.
* * *
BOBBY CARLIN, a capable lit-
tle veteran at 123 pounds, and
heavyweight Harry Jagielski, two
of the all-winning grapplers, are
both returnees from last year's
squad. Newcomer Jim Ellis, Hoos-
ier 147 pounder, is the third unde-
feated wrestler.

Harry Arthur and Kay Hut-
sell, Hoosiers ,,at 130 and 167
pounds respetively, have lost
only once.
The other three "middle class"
teams in the Conference, Iowa,
Purdue and Northwestern, base
their hopes mainly on tried and
true individual stars.
IOWA'S mainstay is Capt. Phil
Duggan, a 130 pound veteran who
was undefeated in his first four
dual meets.
Purdue's Boilermakers will
rely upon the 1950 Conference
champion, 147 pound Jack Mor-
eno, who won the title as .a soph-
omore, but last year lost out in
the finals to Bryce Keough of
OSU.
Al Vega, at 130 pounds, may also
pick up some points for the Boiler-
makers.
Northwestern will count upon
the performance of new-cover Len
Vyskocil to bring them points in
the meet. Vyskocil, a 137 pound-
er, will have stiff competition in
his quest for the crown.

SKALA'S FAREWELL:
Win over Purdue Saves
M' from Worst Season

By ED WHIPPLE
Blue line banter as Michigan's
hockey team prepares to wind up
its regular season against Mich-
igan Tech here this weekend:
THE BID: It's no secret around
the Coliseum that a bid to the
NCAA championships (March 13-
15) is expected by the Wolverines
-providing they whip Tech Fri-
day and Saturday.
A triumph Friday is necessary
to pull the Maize and Blue into
a tie with Denver for second in
the Midwest League; a win Sat-
urday would enhance Michigan's
record to 20-4, and the record is
the basis for selection by a com-
mittee in cases of tie.
Denver's record for the cam-
paign is 16 wins, seven losses, and
a tie. Colorado College automati-
cally gets the other western berth
by finishing first in the MCHL.
* * *
THE COMMITTEE: Chairman-

ed by Michigan's mentor Vic Hey-'
liger, the selection committee for
western teams consists of Cheddy
Thompson (Colorado), Doc Rom-
nes (Minnesota), Amo Bessone
(MSC), Al Renfrew (Michigan
Tech), and Fido Purpur (North;
Dakota).
Renfrew and Bessone will be
on hand for Saturday's game,
and Heyliger says he plans to
contact the other three immed-
iately following the contest, so
that the selection will be known
in short order.
Heyliger has no vote on the com-
mittee, since his team is involved
in the deadlock.
OUT EAST: Competition for
the eastern playoff berths has been
so keen that seven teams-Boston
College, Brown, Boston University,
Clarkson, Rensselaer, St. Lawrence,
and Yale-have been requested to
send records and personnel data

to Colorado Springs where the
tourney is played,
There is a possibility that play-
offs will be held early next- week
to determine the two competitors.
Rink officials at Canton, N.Y.,
Troy, N.Y., and Boston have been
asked whether their rinks would
be available for playoffs on March
10 and 11.

By the skin of its teeth.
That's how Michigan avoided
what could have been the worst
season in its 35 year basketball
history by turning back Purdue
Monday ,night.
THE WOLVF RINES had their
backs against the wall with defeat
number sixteen and the Big Ten
cellar staring them right in the
5, face.
But two money ballplayers,
veteran Am Skala and newcom-
er Don Eaddy provided the spark
that gave Michigan its seventh
triumph in 22 starts this year
and an exit from the confer-
ence's bottom rung.
Skala turned in perhaps his best
performance in three years on the
varsity to nab individual scoring
honors with 23 points.
THIS GAVE the amiable Chi-
ago senior a collegiate total of
508 markers, with 305 of them
coming in 40 league contests.
Eight field goals and seven free

through the first session, he drew
three personals in a minute and a
half to quickly find his way back
to the bench.
But the Bay City sophomore,
who averaged 10.7 points per game
during the campaign, came back,
in the last quarter to count with
eight tallies and insure the victory.

throws raised Skala's season scor-
ing to 258 tallies to sew up squad
laurels by 20 points over Milt
Mead.
The big field goal as far as
Skala was concerned came two
minutes after the start of the
second half. Michigan's=captain
looped up a soft one-hander
from the keyhole that swished
through the cords and rang up
points number 500 and 501.
Even more important to the
Wolverine cause was thestandout
defensive job that Skala' turned
in on Carl McNulty, Purdue's high
scoring center.

McNULTY needed 23 points to
set a new Boilermaker scoring rec-
ord, but he registered only six
with Skala watching him during
the first thirty minutes, and added
eight more when Purdue was far

It's the sensible test-the 30-Day Camel ?
