Michigan, Illini Co-favorites
To Cop Big Ten Track Title


Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN - Twenty-eight
Maize and Blue Thinclads left
Ann Arbor yesterday noon, deter-
mined to return as Michigan's
first indoor Big Ten track and field
champion since 1945.
The Wolverines are currently
rated co-favorites with Illinois to
grab the crown, .with Iowa, Indi-
ana and Michigan State expected
to trail the leaders in that order.
TONIGHT preliminaries will be
held in six events and semi-finals
in two others. Tomorrow the finals
will be run in all 12 events.
Three of the five returning
champions will wear the Maize
Gym Squad
In Big Ten
Meet Today
The Michigan gymnastics squad
enters this afternoon's Conference
gymnastics preliminaries at East
Lansing in the dark horse, role.
With powerful Illinois, Minne-
sota, MSC, and a rough Iowa
contingent in the running the
Wolverines are picked for no bet-
ter than third or fourth.
* * *
COACH Newt Loken has taken
a six man-team to Michigan State
to compete in six team events and
two others counting only toward
individual all-around scoring.
Defending parallel bar cham-
pion and fourth all-around man
in the Big Ten Harry Luchs is
still on the ineligible list along
with Lee Krumbholz, who placed
sixth in all-around.
Michigan entrants may prove to
be the spoilers in their individual
MARV JOHNSON ranks among
thet best on the horizontal bar
and parallel bars. He is the Wol-
verines' best prospect in the all-
around category and will probably
go in five events.
The Wolverines have a good
chance to pick up points in
trampoline and tumbling with
Captain Don Hurst, Frank
1 Adams, and Jack Eckle in the
former and Hurst and Adams on
the mats. Hurst has piled up
constant firsts and seconds in
both events all season.
Dick Bergmann has shown great
improvement on the flying rings
# during the current campaign and
foreseeably could edge into one of
the top spots.
S* *
MAIN MICHIGAN stalwart on
the sidehorse sophomore Jim Bar-
bero is good enough to place if in
top form.
Chief competition in the all-
around field will be furnished by
Illinois' terrific trio of Bob Sul-
livan, and Gil Brinkmeyer, a
top side horse competitor.
Ranking with these are Ken
Bartlett of Minnesota, 1952 flying
rings title holder, and Spartan
Carl Rintz. The Hawkeyes of Iowa
boast a powerhouse in the tum-
bling and trampoline events,
sparked by co-captain Robert
The preliminaries of the meet
will run through tonight and the
finals are scheduled for tomorrow

and Blue, John Ross, mile run;
Roland Nilsson, shot put; and
Jack Carroll, quarter mile. The
remaining two Willie Williams,
low hurdles; and Joel McNulty,
high hurdles, are from Illinois.
Nilsson will run into the stiffest
competition he has met this sea-
son in the person of Illini John
Bauer, who tossed the 16-pound
ball 53 feet 3 inches last weekend.
ROSS WILL BE running against
another outstanding field in de-
fense of his crown. Illinois' Walt
Jewsbury and Ocie Trimble, Jack
Hagen of Indiana, Ted Wheeler
of Iowa, John Stayton of Purdue,
Spartan Jim Kepford, and Michi-
gan's John Moule are all topnotch
Gary Scott of Iowa, second
last year, will be back to chal-
lenge Carrol for supremacy in
the quarter mile. Other probale
point getters are Meade Bur-
nette of Ohio State and Michi-
gan State's Lou Vargha.
The Wolverines were hurt in this
event when Grant Scruggs' pulled
tendon failed to respond to treat-
ment. Coach Don Canham has not
definitely decided, but will most
likely run him in the relay to avoid
his having to run trials.
* * *
THE HIGH JUMP, which is
wide open, could make or break
the Wolverines. At the moment
any of four men, Jim Harper of
Indiana, Spartan Jim Vrooman, or
Michigan's Bob Evans and Dave
Heintzman could take the title.
The meet may go down to the
final race the mile relay, in which
returned champion Iowa is fa-
vored, before a champion is deter-
Though the Hawkeye's have the
same quartet that won last year
both Michigan's aggregation of
Dan Hickman, Scruggs, Bill Bar-
ton and Carroll and Illinois' quar-
tet of Ralph Fessendon, Joe Cor-
ley, Stace Siders, and Williams are
rated highly.
Big Ten Sets
New Schedule
MONTICELLO, Ill.-(P)-After
10 months of intermittent wran-
gling, Big Ten football coaches
Thursday agreed upon 1955 and
1956 schedules while athletic di-
rectors ordered basketball coaches
to return to a 14-game schedule
next season and discard the 18-
game, home-and-home schedule
used this campaign.
The football schedules give In-
diana, Illinois, Michigan, Wiscon-
sin, Purdue and Northwestern sev-
en conference games both years.
The other school, Michigan State,
Iowa, Minnesota and Ohio State,
get six.
Big Ten championship competi-
tion for the first time this fall,
will have three home games in
1955, its centennial year, and two
in 1956. The Spartan school also
has two home games in 1953 and
1954 schedules previously drawn.
The basketball coaches were d-
rected to meet in Chicago March
14 to arrange a 14-game confer-
ence schedule for the next two
seasons. The maximum number of
games which can' be played by
each school remains at 22, leaving
eight dates for non-conference op-

'M' Matmen
Given Edge
In Title Bid
Michigan and Michigan State
are co-favorites for the team
championship as the Big Ten
wrestling finals embark on their
two-day elimination tournament
at Bloomington, Indiana, this eve-
The Wolverine wrestlers are
conceded a slight edge by virtue
of their 17-13 conquest of the
Spartans earlier in the season.
IN A SURPRISE move Coach
Cliff Keen announced that the
Michigan squad will be represent-
ed by only seven men. Dick
O'Shaughnessy, who has been
fighting as a heavyweight all sea-
son, has been switched to the 177
pound class and the team will
make the trip without a heavy-
It has been explained that
O'Shaughnessy, who is the de-
fending 177 pound champion,
has been constantly spotting his
opponents anywhere from fif-
teen to twenty-five pounds in
the heavyweight class and that
if he can fight against men of
his own weight he would have a
better chance to annex another
conference crown.
Last season on the basis of a
strong finish the Wolverine mat-
men edged out Michigan State and
took second place behind the de-
fending Illini.
* * *
IN ADDITION to Michigan
State and Illinois, the Wolverines
will face strong contention from
the darkhorse entry, Minnesota.
The Gophers are also undefeated
in conference play although they
have not faced any of the three
powers, namely Michigan, Illinois,
or Michigan State.
In what might be the head-
line feature of the entire
tournament Michigan's Captain,
"Snip" Nalon will defend his
130 pound championship.
In addition to their two defend-
ing titlists, the Wolverines have
three other outstanding perform-
ers. At 137 pounds Sophomore
Andy Kaul, unbeaten in nine
matches over the season, will be
attempting to wrestle away the
title from Captain Pete Compton
of Illinois.
* * *
JOE SCANDURA is another of
the outstanding maize and blue
matmen. Fighting at 147 pounds,
Scandura is unbeaten in confer-
ence tilts and has only an early
season defeat suffered in a non-
league contest with Pittsburgh to
mar his record.
Rounding out the quintet of
Coach Keen's potential champions
is Miles Lee at 157 pounds. Lee
has only two defeats and one tie
in nine matches.

Konno Puts OSU
Natators in Lead


Associate Sports Editor
Special to The Daily
IOWA CITY-Ohio State's de-
fending champion swimming team
moved out in front in the race
for the 1953 Western Conference
Crown here last night on the
strength of Ford Konno's decis-
ive triumph in the 1500-meter free
style, the only race of the day.
The smooth-stroking Hawaiian
was followed to the finish line by
MSC's Bert McLachlan, Michigan's
Captain Wally Jeffries, Buckeye
Rocco Cirigliano, Dave Anderson
of Minnesota, and Iowan Ross Lu-
-* * *
TEAM POINT totals going into
today's six events are: Ohio State
10, Michigan State 5, Michigan 4,
Minnesota 2, and Iowa 1.
Konno's winning time was a
mediocre 18:37.0. The spunky
Buckeye and Spartan McLach-
lan stayed neck and neck at the
head of the pack for the first
20 lengths, but then Konno
gradually pulled ahead to win
by 15-yards.
Jeffries provided all of Mich-
igan's counters with his surpris-
ing third place finish. Swimming
fifth in his heat (the best seven
times were all recorded in this,
the second of two heats), the
Evansville, Indiana senior moved
into the third slot in the final
twenty lengths, and beat Cirigliano
by ten yards.
A' *
gan won the first heat easily, but
his 20:39.9 was not good enough
to place among the point-winning
first six.
Ohio State hopes fora repeat
championship were bolstered
considerably when Coach Mike

Peppe announced that his star
free style dashman Dick Cleve-
land has recovered from the
mumps and will swim in both
the 50 and 100-yard free style
The meet continues today with
preliminaries and finals in the
50-yard free style, 200-yard back-
stroke, 220-yard free style, 200-
yard breast stroke, 400-yard free
style relay, and the one-meter
fancy diving events,
PROBABLY the best race of
the meet will find Konno match-'
ing strokes with the Wolverines'
Burwell (Bumpy) Jones and Ron
Gora in the 220. Michigan State's
ace, McLachlen should provide a
real threat to this talented middle
distance trio.
Last week in the dual contest
in Ann Arbor, Konno nosed out
Jones by an eyelash in the final
20-yards. Gora, who had led
most of the way, finished a close
third. Last year Konno won by
better than two and a half sec-
onds over McLachlan and Jones.
His 2:06.7 stands as the Big
Ten record.
Today's other five events ap-
pear fairly clearcut as far as the
winners are concerned, except for
the 50-yard freestyle where Mich-
igan's swift Don Hill and defend-
ing champ Cleveland are expected
to battle it down to the last yard.
* * *
BUCKEYES Jerry Holan and
Yoshi Oyakawa are expected to
have an easy time of it in the
breast stroke and back stroke re-
spectively, and teammates Bob
Clotworthy and Morley Shapiro
rate as co-favorites in the one-
meter dive. Shapiro is the defend-
ing champion.

Sextet Closes Season Against Tech

Michigan's hockey team takes
the ice against weak Michigan
Tech tonight and tomorrow night
at the Coliseum in the last two
scheduled games of the season.
Both tilts start at 8 p.m,
* * *
tied with Denver for third place
in the Midwest Collegiate Hockey
League, can do no worse than
vault into a first place tie with
Minnesota if they dump sixth
place Tech in both contests.
First and second place fin-


ishers in the MCHL will receive
invitations to the annual N. C.
. A. hockey tournament in
Colorado Springs next week-
end. Michigan is defending na-
tional champ, having won the
title the last two years.
A split with the Engineers will
leave the Wolverines in a second,
place tie with North Dakota. How-
ever, in view of their two pre-
vious wins over the Nodaks, they
would probably get the invitation
to the tournament.

EXCEPT' FOR goalie Willard
Ikola, the squad is in good physi-
cal condition. Ikola received a
painful groin injury in, the sec-,
ond McGill game Saturday after-
noon which has not been respond-
ing to treatment. He started
against Michigan State Wednes-
day but the pain was too great
and he had to leave the game after
the first period.
If "Ike" doesn't start, his cap-
able understudy Bill Lucier will'
handle the netminding chores.
