Track Squad
Looks Ahead
To BigYear
By JOHN JENKS
Cast in the role of another Alex-
ander the Great, Coach Dan Can-
ham will be seeking new worlds
to conquer when he takes his thin-
clads to the Michigan State Relays
next Saturday.
Every such event presents many
opportunities to the cinder general
and his potent forces to break old
records or crush opponents, as the
results of the brief between-
semester excursion attest.
DURING THAT period the
Michigan trackmern distinguished
themselves both as a group and
individually. The highlight of the
campaign came in the state AAU
meet when the cindermen snared
top honors in 10 events and shat-
tered two American records in the
process.
pHurdler Van Bruner, a junior
from New Jersey, set the pace
by winning both the high and
low hurdles, the former in the
record time of :07.9, a tenth of
a second under the previous
American mark.
The crack 880-yard relay team
of Dan Hickmon, Bill Konrad,
Jack Carroll and Joe LaRue
turned in a 1:30.8 time to break
a 24-year-old national record
established by Yale in 1928 of
1:32.4. LaRue, incidentally, suf-
fered a scholastic setback and cur-
rently is ineligible.
THE MEET also provided an
opportunity- for Fritz Nilsson to
unveil his potentiality. The giant
Swede hurled the shot a respec-
table 53 feet, one inch, for win-
ner's laurels.
Sophomore Jack C a r r o l l
finished third in the 600 in the
Boston Knights of Columbus
meet behind Olympic champ
Mal Whitfield and George
Rhoden, who holds the world
440 mark. He later ran first in
the Milwaukee Journal in the
same event.
The Maize and Blue bearers
smothered Western Michigan and
Ypsi Normal in a triangular affair
held in Yost Field House. As the
squad was winning 10 of the dozen
events, Bruner tied both hurdle
records for the field house, Mc-
Ewen proved his versatility by
turning in a 1:57.4 half mile and
Bob Evans high jumped six feet,
four inches.

Matmen Face Wildcats;
Seek Fifth Straight Win

MCHL SHOWDOWN:

With six of their nine dual meets
past history, the Wolverins wres-
tling team is making ready for its
meet against Northwestern this
Saturday.
A tidy winning streak of four
now counterbalances two early
losses and the grapplers are count-
ing on improving their mark
against the Wildcats here in Ann
Arbor. A look at the individual
performances gives quite a good
insight into the team's showing so
far.
** *
THE ONLY undefeated wrestler
is Larry Nelson, conference 123
pound champion who has won
four after being halted by an early
season injury. Big man in the
win column is Dick O'Shaughnessy
with five wins, one by a pin, and
one loss. Closo behind is Dave
Space ,who has wrestled at both
147 and 157 pounds. Dave has won
four, lost one, and tied another.
Diminutive Snip Nalan, a 130
pound sophomore has looked
brilliant in spots while compiling
a four and one mark. Jack -Gal-
lon, plagued by a knee injury
and weight trouble still has
managed to post an impressive
three won, one lost record.
Captain Bud Holcombe, after
taking his first four matches in a
row, dropped his last two at Toledo
and Illinois. *
has bounced back to win his last
two matches.
The individual records follow

Nelson 4 0 12
Space (one draw) 4 1 14

State Gets Gridder
Michigan grid prospects for
1952 received a setback at the
hands of Michigan State's Spar-
tans with the sudden departure
from the Wolverine campus of
Jerry Musetti, 180-pound halfback
from Detroit.
Musetti, who was in residence
here for several days last week
and had been proffered a De-
troit Alumni Club scholarship,
is now enrolled at the East
Lansing school and has ex-
pressed satisfaction with his sit-
uation.
The Denby back was the prize
catch among Detroit high school
gridders and had received bids
from several colleges before final-
ly deciding on Michigan State.

Unbeaten 'M' Gymnasts Head
Into Tough Part of Schedule

By ERIC VETTER
By virtue of two victories be-
tween semesters, Michigan's gym-
nastic team remains in the unde-
feated class as it heads into the
Y' toughest part of its schedule.
Northwestern and Ohio State
fell to the Wolverine gymnasts
during the semester lull. The Wild-
cats absorbed a 67-28 drubbing
while Ohio came up with Michi-
gan's sternest competition before
bowing 55-41.
FRESHMAN Harry Luchs con-
tinued to pace the Wolverine at-
tacks by picking up 28 points in
the two meets. He took a first and
a second against Northwestern
and won three events against
Ohio, the high bar, flying rings,
and the parallel bars.
A faulty belt buckle ham-
pered Luchs' performance on
the high bar against Northwest-
ern. During his routine the
buckle gave way and psycholo-
gical difficulties hampered the
rest of his performance. His vic-
tories give him a season total of
43 points, high individual mark
for the team.
Northwestern's Joe Zima turned
in a fine tumbling performance to
capture his team's only first. Dun-
can Erley, Michigan's ace tum'-
bler, was not on hand for the meet.
FIRSTS FOR Michigan against
the Wildcats went to Mary John-
son on the high bar and parallel
bars, Don Hurst on the trampoline
and Connie Ettl on the side horse.
Ohio moved into an early 20-
13 lead against Michigan when
4 Tom Franklin and Bob Henning
won the side horse and trampo-
U -l

line events respectively. The
Wolverines swept the remaining
firsts with Luchs contributing
his three and Erley a tumbling
first.
Michigan's captain Connie Ettl,
still recovering from early season
'illnesses failed to compete in this
meet.
