By ED SMITH
Showing surprising balance as
well as expected strength, the
Michigan cinder express rolled to
an easy win over Penn State and
Ohio State in a triangular meet
before an estimated 2900 fans in
Yost Fieldhouse yesterday after-
The Wolverines garnered 81
points to the Nitanny Lions' 35
and the hapless Buckeyes' 22.
4Michigan took nine firsts to Penn
State's two and Ohio State's one.
THE MEET'S only double win-
ner was the Wolverines' reliable
timber topper Van Bruner. He
took the highs by more than five

a second his own Fieldhouse rec-

house record of which he is a co-
Fritz Nilsson kept intact his
season long string of victories
in the shot put by tossing the
metal ball over 53 feet to win
by more than two feet.
Running his best two miles of
the year, George Lynch took the

But Ikola stayed in the game,
turning back the 'Redmen with
consistency until he was forced to
go to the sidelines to have his
left leg pad repaired after it was
torn in a mixup in the goal mouth.
When he returned to the ice, four
minutes short of his third shutout
of the season, Pete Constable
blasted a blue-line screen shot
past Alex McClellan and it
skimmed into the twines to knot
the score at 1-1.
LESS THAN two minutes later,
at 18:26, Constable netted the
second McGill goal when he swept
in from left wing on a power
play to convert Whitey Shutz' pass
into the winning margin.
Coach Vic Heyliger then pull-
ed Ikola in the last minute of
play but' the Wolverines were
unable to dent the solid defense
led by Captain Jim McGowan,
the bespectacled Ron Robertson
and rugged Len Shaw. Shutz
Just missed a shot at the open
nets about .fifteen seconds be-
fore the end of the contest.
The victory was sweet revenge
for the fine Canadian sextet which
was soundly beaten 6-0 and 3-1 in
Ann Arbor last year. Oddly
enough, this year the goal totals
were exactly switched, nine for
McGill and one for the Wolverines.

State in the time of 9:24. Lynch,
who had set the pace most of the
way, had to relinquish the lead to
Hollen with slightly more than a
quarter to go, but as the gun
sounded for the final lap, he found
new energy and came from behind
to win going away.
THE FEATURE race of the
meet, the quarter-mile, as ex-
pected was a duel between Nitanny
Lion Ollie Sax and Wolverine

Gophers .Dump Cagers, 8-69
By DICK LEWIS
Michigan plunged one step fur-
ther into the familiar environs of
the Big Ten basketball cellar last
night as a red-hot Minnesota
quintet waltzed to an easy 83-69
verdict on the Yost Field House
Coach Bill Perigo's hapless
charges suffered their sixth con-
secutive conference setback, but,
believe it or not, still hold hopes
for vacating the basement spot.
EQUALLY hapless Purdue went
down the drain against Michigan
State and now sports a 2-12 slate
while the Wolverine record stand
at 2-13. The two squads meet here
For a change Michigan made
a game out of it for at least a
period, deadlocking the Goph-
ers 17-17 at the ten-minute
After that the Wolverines folded
up like an accordion and except for
a few half-hearted scoring thrusts
they rolled over and played dead
for the second time this season
against the sharp-shooting invad-
ers, who hit on 34 of 78 shots.
WITH THE SCORE reading 17-'
12 and less than two minutes left
in the first quarter, the Maize and
Blue five put together a five-point
string to make things even for
the only time in the contest.
Captain Doug Lawrence found
the range on a long set shot,
one of five he collected on the
evening, center Paul Groffsky
canned a free throw and high-
point man Don Eaddy funnelled
through a one-hander just as
the buzzer sounded to knot the
count at 17-all.
Minnesota responded with a
seven-point string at the start
of the next stanza, and with for-
ward Bob Gelle and guard Chuck
Mencel setting the pace maintain-
ed a 38-32 bulge at the midway

Michigan's second attempt to
make a game of it came at the
start of the second half, fol-
lowing a free throw by Ski-U-
Mah guard Earl Johnson.
Forward John Codwell tipped
in a rebound and notched a char-
ity toss and Groffsky meshed one
of the same to close the gap to
39-36. Cagey Minnesota coach Oz-
zie Cowles, erstwhile Michigan
mentor, immediately called a time-
out, whereupon the Gophers came

MENCEL registered three quick
one-handed jump shots from way
out and springy guard Buzz Ben-
nett added a pair of driving lay-
ups as the visitors ran their way
to a 56-47 three quarter advan-
A belated Maize and Blue bid
brought the score to 61-54 in
the next round, but thereafter
Minnesota simply added to its
hefty 43.6 field goal percentage
and flooded the floor with re-
serves in the waning minutes.
Only the exceptional outside
shouting of Eaddy kept the tally
as close as it was in the final
stanza. Eaddy collected nine of his
22 counters in the last ten min-
utes to lead all Michigan scorers.
He netted nine of 23 attempts
from the floor.
Groffsky, who turned in an ex-
cellent job off the boards, was one
of four other Michigan starters to
hit double figures. Big Groff reg-
istered 14, while Codwell rang up
11 and both Milt Mead and Law-
rence hit for 10.
Gelle and Mencel led the Min-
nesota scoring parade, counting
with 20 and 17 markers respec-
(Continued from Page 1)
Jones later captured his spe-
cialty, the 150 yard individual
medley, and amazed the crowd
by finishing a close second in
the 440 freestyle near the end
of the meet. Konno, who won
the race, lowered Jones' Michi-
gan pool record of 4:41.8 by 2.2
The workhorse, point-getting
performance of Jones is more ap-
preciated in the light of a revela-
tion after the meet that the Mich-
igan star had slept only three
hours Friday night. An auto acci-
dent had involved both of his par-
ents and forced him to renain
awake most of the night.
POTENT factors in Michigan's
success were the performances of
John Chase in the backstroke and
Glen Miller in the breaststroke.
Both were pitted against the best

and Jerry Holan respectively, and
both swam at maximum efficiency.
Chase especially, forced the
great Oyakawa to the limit be-
fore yielding in the 200 yard
backstroke. Miller is only a
sophomore and swam his best
race of the season in the face
of veteran opposition.
Forgotten in the flush of vic-
tory was the sobering fact that
Ohio's superb sprinter Dick Cleve-
land was not among those present
in the Michigan natatorium. The
Buckeye star remained in Colum-
bus, a victim of the mumps.

have fared with Cleveland in the

The Wolverine wrestling squad
ended its dual meet schedule in
an impressive manner last night
as it trounced the Ohio State
Buckeyes, 25-9, in Yost Fielhouse.
The victory was the seventh
straight conference triumph for
the Michigan matmen and left
them with an overall season rec-
ord of eight wins and one loss.
* * *
WITH THIS win over the Buck-
eyes the Wolverines go into the
conference finals next weekend
undefeated in conference play,
sporting decisions over every Big
Ten team but Minnesota and
Wisconsin, whom they haven't
The Buckeyes jumped into an
early 3-0 lead when Tom Knoll
defeated Michigan's Joe Atkins
at 123 pounds. However after
that Captain Snip Nalon .start-
ed the Michigan juggernaut
rolling and the Wolverines were
never threatened again.
Nalon, defending conference
champion at 130 pounds, out-
classed Ohio State's Wayne Nich-
ols in the night's most one-sided
match. Starting from a crouch
it was only a matter of several
seconds before Nalon had his man
on the mat, and only one minute
and forty-one seconds later he
had pinned him for good.
THIS MATCH started a win-
ning streak in which Michigan
copped four straight matches, all
by pinning their opponents to the
mat. Andy Kaul, Joe Scandura,
and Miles Tee followed Nalon's
example in the 137, 147, and 157
pound weight divisions respec-
tively. At this point the bewild-
ered Buckeyes were already be-
yond any chance of victory .as
Michigan led 20-3.
IN THE 167 and 177 divisions
the Ohio Staters managed to eke
out two decisions as Ted Kistner
defeated Michigan's Bronson Rum-
sey and Jack Mulligan rallied to
squeeze out a triumph over Har-
old "Pepper" Holt.
Dick O'Shaughnessy, Michi-
gan's heavyweight, completed
the night's coup de grace as he
pinned Ohio State's Roger Mor-
itz in the finale.
Although winning only five out
of eight matches, the Wolverines
showed their championship ambi-
tions by winning all of these
matches by pinning their competi-
tors. This is especially indicative
of the Wolverine potential when
it is realized that a meet that fea-
tures more than one or two pin-
nings is a rarity.

record, the Michigan matmen

EAST LANSING-The Michigan
gymnastic squad was handed a
'heart breaking defeat last night
by the Michigan State Spartans,
4812-471/2, at East Lansing.
The Wolverine gym-men didn't
gain a first place as Spartan Carl
Rintz paced the victors, picking
up three firsts and a third, good
for 21 of the Spartan total. He
took his firsts in the side horse,
high bar, and the flying rings.
THE LEADING scorer for Mich-
igan was veteran Mary Johnson,
who gained three seconds, a third,
and a fourth. He amassed a total
of 17 points in the side horse, high
bar, parallel bar, flying rings and
the tumbling events.
Michigan captain Don Hurst
was edged by Spartan captain
John Walker in the trampoline
and tumbling events. Hurst
fought valiantly, but his efforts
were only good for two seconds.
Newcomer Frank Adams placed
third in three events, tying once
with Joe Stacer in the trampoline
event. Adams took his other plac-
es in the high bar and tumbling
contests. His efforts were good
enough for nine points, which
made him Michigan's seconsJ

% OTHER bright spots in the Wol-
verine picture included the per-
formance of fast improving Jim
Barbero. Barbero gained a third,
a fourth and two fifths, good for
seven points. Dick Bergman earn-
ed five points, as he took a second
In Pneumatic Engineering
on the flying rings, and a fourth
in the parallel bar events.
The Loken charges have now
won four dual meets as against
three defeats. The mid-season
loss of veterans Harry Luchs
and Lee Krumbholz hurt the
Michigan squad. Coach Loken
was forced to revise his roster
in an attempt to compensate
for the loss.
The Michigan contingent now
looks forward to the Big Ten
Championships to be held at East
Lansing on March 6 and 7. Last
year's titlist, Illinois, is expected
to be a repeat winner.
