Thinclads Battle Spartans;

Gymnasts Op
Michigan's stellar track squad,
34 strong, journeys to East Lan-
sing tonight to face arch-rival
Michigan State in the Wolver-
ines' first dual meet of the season.
The tilt, beginning at 7:00 p.m.
in Jenison Fieldhouse, is figured
to ':e only moderately tough for
the Maize and Blue thinclads, who
are pointing for the conference
meet two weeks away.
BESIDES having superior in-
dividual performers, the cinder
contingent can boast of a team
depth advantage t h a t should
' wing the scales decidedly in
gan's favor.
Of the even dozen scheduled
events State is expected to be a
source of trouble in only three,
the 60 yard dash, the high jump
and the pole vult. In the other
events Michigan has at least one
outstanding performer a n d
more often several.
ti The feature attraction of the
evening will pit sophomore John
Ross against captain Don Mc-
Ewen in the mile. Ross will also
run the 880, along with George
Jacobi and Arron Gordon, while
McEwen will do the two mile, his
specialty, with freshman John
Moule and -Bill Hickman.
* * *
VAN BRUNER and Wally At-
chison should nail down both
hurdle events, and big Fritz Nils-
son should do the same in the-
shot put. Horace Coleman is fa-
vored to take broad jumping hon-
M0SC's Jim Vrooman poses a
major problem to high jumpers
Bob Evans and Dave Heintzman,
Unless Evans can duplicate an
earlier effort of 6'4", Vrooman
should escape with winner's lau-
Ross Coates, John Vallortegara
and Terry Nulf will represent
Michigan in the 60 yard dash. All
are rated about equal in ability.

ose Illinois
The, axe may fall today!
Michigan's gymnasts, thus far
this season, have taken most of
their meets with little or no trou-
ble at all, piling up very high
scores. They have tallied 254
points to their opponents' 129
THE WORM may turn in the
Michigan dual meet at the Uni-
versity of Illinois today. The ex-
perts are betting even money on
the event.
Illinois suffered its first loss
in three years at the hands of
Michigan State last Saturday,
53-43. This ended a 22-dual
meet winning streak for the II-
lini. They have lost a few men
through scholastic ineligibility
but still present a very strong
team. The defeat by MSC
doesn't prove much since State
has a very strong team this
year, and should go a long way
in the Big Ten meet.
Spearhead of the Illinois at-
tack is Bob Sullivan, a junior who
racked up 20 points against MSC
with firsts on the flying rings and
in tumbling. Sullivan captured the
national tumbling championship
last year.
* * *
TO OPPOSE Illinois' No. I man,
the Wolverines will have Harry
Luchs, a two-time winner on the
rings, and Connie Ettl, finally
rounding into top form. Duncan
Erley's tumbling routine should
make things close in that event
with Don Hurst adding some ad-
ditional support.
Besides Sullivan, Illini coach
Charlie Pond has some good
all-round men in Gil Brinkmey-
er and Frank Bare. Brinkmey-
er is one of the nation's top
parallel bar men and Bare is
ranked high as a side horse
Freshman Jeff Austin and Capt.
Walt Cryer make -up Illinois'
trampoline contingent. Cryer
took second in the Midwest open
meet this year; Austin doubles up
on the tumbling event.

Vie for Sixth.
Big Ten Spot
Ebert Tops OSU;
Skala Eyes 500
Strange as it may seem, Michi-
gan's basketball team will be
shooting for sixth place in the
Big Ten when it meets Ohio State
at Columbus tonight.
Coach Ernie McCoy's charges
have notched only three of ten
conference starts, but a win over
the Buckeyes, who stand currently
at 4-7, would put the Wolverines
at the top of the second division
by half a game.
THE MAIZE and Blue must
contend with phenomenal sopho-
more Paul Ebert if it expects to
reach its greatest heights in the
Western Conferenee since a third
place finish in 1949.
Ebert is a 6-4 center from
Columbus who holds down
fourth position in the Big Ten
scoring race with 212 points in
eleven contests for a 19.3 aver-
age. He has netted 35 per cent
of his shots from the floor and
62 per cent from the free throw
After Ebert, the Buckeye scor-
ing attack lacks potency. Forward
Tom Williams, a junior from
Lima, Ohio, ranks 25th in the cir-
cuit with 97 points for an 8.8
The only other OSU point-
getter in the top 43 is Captain
John Karaffa, senior guard who
is in the 43rd1 position with 68
markers and a 6.2 average.
,e * *
OTHER BUCKEYE starters are
veteran forward Ralph Armstrong,
a letterman for two successive
seasons, and Jack Jones, 5-11
guard out of Dayton.
Coach Floyd Stahl's five also
administered one of the three
losses to third Flace Minnesota.
The Gophers other two defeats
came at the hands of the two
leaders, Iowa and Illinois.
WHEN THEY trot out onto
their home court, the Buckeyes
will be seeking their fifth straight
triumph over Michigan, which has
taken 27 verdicts in the 56-game
history of the series.
The Michigan cagers have not
defeated the Bucks since their
first meeting in 1949. Last year's
struggle went to Ohio State,
68-66, at Ann Arbor.
McCoy will field his usual start-
ing combination of Captain Jim
Skala and Ray Pavichevich at the
forwards, Milt Mead in the pivot
slot, and Doug Lawrence and Don
Eaddy as the backcourt guardians.
Skala, with four games to go,
seems sure to surpass the 500
point mark for three years of var-
sity play. The Chicago senior has
registered a three-season total of
452 tallies, with 249 of them com-
ing against conference opposition.
He tops this season's Wolverine
hoopsters with 202 scores.

Meet Iowa
At Iowa City
Both Teams Have
Spotless Records
Michigan's unbeaten natators
will be out to make Iowa their
eighth victim of the season this
afternoon at Iowa City.
The Wolverines will g into the
dual meet heavily-favored despite
the fact that the Hawkeyes also
claim an unblemished record.
Iowa's dual meet wins this season
have been at the expense of four
of the weaker swimming teams in
the Conference, Illinois, Wiscon-
sin, Purdue and Northwestern.
* * *
A FAST RACE is promised in
the 200-yard breaststroke this af-
ternoon when Michigan's John
Davies and Stew Elliott tangle
with Iowa's Bowen Stassforth.
Stassforth holds the AAU breast-
stroke records for the 400-meter,
440-yard, 500-yard, and 500-meter
Iowa also promises to give the
visitors some fast competition
in the sprints. Wally Nicholson,
Dick Labahn, and Keo Mana,
all members of the 400-yard
free-style relay team which set
an Iowa Field House Pool record
of 3:28.7 against Michigan last
year, are expected to give the
Wolverines a tough test in the
Coach Matt Mann will have
Don Hill, Tom Benner, Jim Ford,
John Ries, Bumpy Jones, Wally
Jeffries and Jim White available
for duty in the free-style relay
against Iowa. Hill will have an
opportunity to crack two more
free-style marks this afternoon,
the records for the Iowa pool be-
ing 23.3 for the 50 and 50.4 for
the 100.
* * *
THE 150-YARD individual med-
ley shapes up as a close race
among Iowa's Ron Johnson and
Michigan's Rusty Carlisle and
Jones, if the latter is used in this
race. Johnson placed fourth in the
NCAA individual medley and third
in the Big Ten race last year.
Wolverine divers Jim Walters
and John Hanrahan will match
dives with Otto Broeder. Broed-
er took fifth place in the Con-
ference high board diving last
The hosts are weak in the back-
stroke department, but will call
on Herb Martin, Willis Weber and
possibly Johnson. The Wolverines
will counter with John Chase and
Dick Howell.
Wayne Leengran, Jeffries and
Jones battle Iowa's Don Watson in
the 220 and 440-yard free-style
Today's meet gives the Wolver-
ines their last preparatory test for
the big meet with Ohio State's
conference champions at Colum-
bus next Wednesday.

A conference title is a dangerous
prediction to make, but if the
Wolverine grapplers can get past
Michigan State at East Lansing
tonight they will definitely move
into position as "the team to beat"
when the conference champion-
ship meet comes here on March 7
and 8.
The Spartans, supposedly a re-
built and green squad,' defeated
defending champion Ohio State
by an 18-10 margin and the Buck-
eyes had been considered the class
of the conference. Coach Cliff
Keens' matmen massacred Illinois,
the other "big team" in the Big
Ten, earlier in the season.
* * *
AS THEY GO into the match
against State, the Wolverines have
lost only one match in conference
competition and that was to Indi-
ana when both Larry Nelson and
Miles Lee didn't see action. MSC
has its team built around the trio
of Orris Bender, Eddie Casalicchio
and Bob Hoke, three very compe-
tent performers.
Both Casalicchio and Hoke
are of the "green" stock that
Coach Fendley Collins was
afraid to count'on at the begin-
ning of the season. Casalicchio

is a sophomore who last year,
competing unattached came in
second in the National AAU
meet. His meeting with Jack
Gallon tonight in the 137 pound
class promises to be one of the
evening's best matches.
It will be up to Miles Lee to put
the brakes on Hoke, as the Spar-
tan moves up to wrestle at 157
pounds. Lee is out for his fourth
straight win after being sidelined
by an elbow injury in the Pitts-
burgh meet.
* * * .
BENDER is one of the three
letter winners on the MSC squad,
and is the only one expected to
see action tonight. Despite an
unimpressive record last year he
has improved to the point where
he is now one of the most highly-
considered of Coach Collins' men.
He will meet Captain "Bud" Hol-
combe of the Wolverines at 167
Three other newcomers on the
State wrestling squad that are
highly rated both by Coach
Keen and his assistant Bob Bet-
zig are heavyweight Larry Fow'-
ler, a sophomore tackle on last
year's undefeated Spartan foot-
ball team and the fabulous
Gunner twins from Chicago.
