Gymnasts Meet Wisconsin
In First Conference Battle

At the Campus Bootery-

U_

Matt Mann's strongest swim-
ming team in several years will
make it's 1954 debut Saturday in
a dual meet with Northwestern at
the Intramural Sports Building
pool at 8 p.m.
Highlighting the meet will be
the renewal of a seven year diving
rivalry between Michigan's Jim-
my Walters and Northwestern's
George Conn. The boys dove
against each other in high school
competition in Chicago and con-
tinued the annual contests while
attending their respective univers-
ities. Conn is still looking for his
first win over the Wolverine ace,
but Walters' steady improvement
dims the chances of such an oc-
curance.
* . *
AL KUHN will lead the under-
manned Northwestern team. He
placed fourth in the Big Ten 50
yard freestyle and fifth in the in-
dividual medley last year.
Archie W a 1I e n, freestyler;
Craig Peterson, b r e as t r ok e r;
Barry Burdick, backstroker; and
Conn are the only lettermen
from coach Bill Peterson's squad
which placed fifth in the con-
ference last season.
The team is somewhat strength-
ened by sophomore freestylers Bill
Stetson, Jack Shillestad, and Len-
nie Young; Charles Hinshaw, and
Wes Harris, backstrokers; and
Jack Riveret, a breastroker. They
fail to compensate, however, for
the loss of Keith Peterson, Big Ten
5Q and 100-yard freestyle cham-
pion.

ON THE OTHER hand, Michi-
gan will send almost a stereotype
of the team that downed the Wild-
cats 62-31 last year into action.
Coach Matt Mann will prob-
ably call on John Chase, Glen
Miller, and Tom Benner, Bob
Knox, or Pete Dow in the med-
ley relay. In the 50 and 100-yard
freestyle events Mann will, more
likely than not, pick Don Hill,
and Benner, Knox, or Dow, with
the possibility that Ron Gora
may see action in the 100.
In the 220 and 440-yard free-
style John O'Rielly and either
Gora or Bumpy Jones will be call-
ed upon to bring home the bacon.
Chase and Jim Kruthers should
be Michigan's hopes in the back-
stroke event.
MILLER and Mike Delaney are
the leading breastrokers of the
Wolverine squad, and Jones and
Delaney seem the likely men to
swim the 150-yard individual med-
ley.
Along with Walters in the div-
ing will be either Charley Bates
or Bud Hurd.
Michigan's 400-yard freestyle
relay team will be comprised of
Benner, Dow, Don Ferguson, Gora,
Hill, Jones, or Knox.
The team will not be as strong
as it will for the latter half of
the season because the Wardrop
twins are ineligible as second se-
mester freshmen.

Michigan gymnastics fans will
have a good chance to evaluate
the present Wolverine squad when
Coach Newt Loken's men perform
against the Wisconsin gymnasts
at 8:00 tonight in the Sports
Building.
The Wisconsin team should pro-
vide a much better test of the Wol-
verines' strength than did Notre
Dame, the only other opponent the
Michigan men have faced. In an
early season meet against the Irish,
the Maize and Blue squad scored
a -decisive 55-41 victory, winning
five of the six events.}

It's Magic.
SPEEDY SERVICE

Michigan's injury shattered
hockey team collides head-on with
Minnesota tonight in Minneapolis,
opening a two game series which
is undoubtedly the most vital of
the campaign for the Wolverines.
Vic Heyligers squad must gain
at least a split with the Gophers
in order to maintain even a flick-
ering hope of an NCAA Playoff
berth. Even under normal circum-
stances, this task would be a rug-
ged one for the Wolverines, but
the loss of Doug Philpott, second
line winger, makes it even harder.
* * *
PHILPOTT suffered a shoulder
separation in the third period of
Saturday nights' clash with Michi-
gan State, and will definitely be
lost to Michigan for this series.
Heyliger must now move ei- 1
ther Telly Mascarin or JayI
Goold up into Philpotts positionI
on the second line. This shuf-I
fling of lines makes Michigan'st
chances for the much needed
split "very dim" according toi
the Wolverine coach.f
The rampant Gophers, freshI
from a fairly successful series,
against league leading North Da-1
kota, now hold the whip hand inE
the WHL. Johnny Mariucci's
crew, by virtue of its 2-2 tie and,
5-0 victory 'over the Nodaks, are
only three points behind the pace-l
setters, and as the season ebbs,
the Gophers will undoubtedly close
in on the Sioux.
HEYLIGER'S outfit will faceI
the most feared forward line inI

coach was quick to point out that
the passing "wasn't as good as it
could be."
Heyliger is hoping that power,
plays will pay off, and that such
boys as Bill MacFarland, who
has pimped in 11 goals so far
this season, George Chin, Pat
Cooney, Doug Mullen, and the
recently recovered ayGoold,
will pull an upset. However, this
remains to be seen, and Michi-
gans' hopes of a fourth straight
NCAA title chance will hang in
balance over Williams Arena to-
night.
Following the Gopher series, the
Wolverines will see more between
semester action when they take on
the Huskies of Michigan Tech at
Hcughton on Feb. 5 and 6. Hey-
liger expects a tough two game se-
ries from Al Renfrew's crew. Ren-
frew himself is an ex-pupil of Hey-
liger, having led the Wolverines to
the national title in 1949.
Playing on Techs new artificial
ice for the first time in the long
62 game series, the Wolverines will
have to face a team headed by a
great goalie, Harry Taylor. Taylor
was called by many second only to
Mattson last season as a goaltend-
er. In one two game series last
year, Taylor stopped 102 shots,
and thus will be tough to beat.
Heyliger calls Tech a much im-
proved team since the beginning
of the season when Denver massa-
cred the Huskies. This improve-
ment is evidenced by the fact that
Michigan Tech gave Colorado Col-
lege a rugged fight before bowing
last week 6-3, 5-2. The front line

ALTHOUGH definite underdogs
to Loken's agile crew, the Badgers'
main power is in the events in
which the Wolverines' strength is
as yet uncertain. Weak in tum-
bling, the Michigan men will be
facing a Wisconsin team which
boasts its main strength in this
event.
The Badgers also boast power
in the trampoline and side horse
events, in which the Wolverine
strength has not been put to a
real test.
In its only previous meet the
Wisconsin squad beat Indiana, 50-
46. Captain Bob Grollo and Paul
Verway, who are expected to be
the main Badger point-getters to-
night, paced the win. Grollo took
first place on the flying rings,
while Verway captured the tram-
poline and tumbling events.
THE MICHIGAN men intend to
unveil several new routines against,
their first conference opponents of
the season. Captain Mary Johnson
expects to attempt a double fly-
away off the 'flying rings for the
first time in competition. John-
son is the only gymnast in the
country to execute the double fly-
away.. Bill Winkler, Wolverine
trampoline star, also plans new ad-
ditions to his routine.
Loken expects to enter vir-
tually the same lineup that
trounced the Notre Dame squad.
The Wolverine gymnasts will be
stronger against the Badgers,
however, due to the return of
Harry Luchs, the 1952 Western
Conference parallel bars cham-
pion. Luchs missed the Notre
Dame meet because of an injur-
ed hand.
On January 30, the Michigan
team will meet the Illinois squad
at Champaign. Ill., in what may
well prove to be the most import-
ant dual meet of the season. Big
Ten champion for the past four
years, the Illinois team seems to
have lost none of its vaunted pow-
er and is definitely the team to
beat this season. .
On February 1, Loken's charges
will face the University of Iowa
team at Iowa City.

Collegiate hockey today, a line of Vic Piasecki, Giles Rivet, and
spearheaded by the fabled center, Tony Cuculic is an inexperienced

Johnny Mayasich, hoider of anl
WHL scoring records.
This crack line is winged by
rugged captain Gene Campbell,
and the sensational D i c k
Dougherty, who scored the hat
trick (three goals) against North
Dakota last weekend.

Back on defense, Mariucci takes
pride in Kenney Yackel and Wen-
dy Anderson. The veteran coach
claims that- Yackel "found him-
self" in last weeks series with the
Nodaks, and is now a topflight
defenseman. Backing them all up
is All-American goalie, Johnny
Mattson, who holds WHL records
for lowest average and most shut-
outs.
ON THE other hand, the Wol-
verines have by no means given
up. The team, which left yester-,
day for the Northland, looked very
sharp in their last practice ses-
sions, and Heyliger called "spirit
very high." However, the Michigan ,

one however, and the Maize and
Blue will be definite favorites.
