Illini Pacing
Track Meet
Special to The Daily
Michigan's title hopes received
an unexpected jolt last night, as
seven Wolverine thinclads failed
to qualify for this afternoon's fi-
nals of the Big Ten indoor cham-
Althoigh the widely heralded
depth of Coach Don Canham's
squad had been heavily counted on
in figuring its chances in snaring
the elusive Conference title, it was
Illnois with its small but bril-
liant aggregation that paced the
field of qualifiers with 13.
* * *
THE WOLVERINES qualified 9
men, as did an Indiana team that
showed itself amazingly well.
.The list of qualifiers is not
completely indicative of Michi-
gan's strength, th.ough, as Can-
ham has much of his power
packed into the mile and 2-mile
events for which no qualifying
trials are held.
Foremost among the list of those
who failed to qualify were Junior
Stielstra in the broad jump and
John Vallortigara in the 300. Stiel-
stra had, until last night, made
the best jump of the season, but
Iowa's Earl Smith stole the Big
Ten show with a leap of 24' %'-
* * *
TOM HENDRICKS hit 22' 11"
to become the only Wolverine still
in contention as teammate Bill
Michaels also failed to qualify.
Vallortigara and Dave Hess-
ter both lost out in the 300 to
leave Michigan without a "vic-
tory in that event. In three more
middle distance events the Wol-
verines' depth was also scrap-
ed a little thin.
Grant Scruggs in the 440, Jack
Carroll in the 600, and John Ross
is the 80 had little trouble earn-
ing spots in th finals, but in
events Pete Sutton, Geof Dooley
and John Moule, respectively, fail-
ed to gain the charmed six who
will compete today.
* . *
ONLY in the 1000 did Michi-
gan's "second" entry come
through as both Gray and Roy
Christiansen qualified.
Jim Love managed to snare
a spot In both the low and high
hurdles, but the Illini complete-
ly dominated these event as they
swept four of the six qualifying
places in the lows and 'two in
the highs.
Fritz Nilsson led the way in the
shot put with a heave of 52' 7%",
to get a good start in defense of
his Conference crown.
* * *
ILLINOIS coach, Leo Johnson,
gave evidence that he will use his
stars in "iron man" roles in an
attempt to win his fourth consecu-
tive Big Ten indoor meet.
Gene Maynard paced the field
of qualifiers in his heat in the
1000 and had the fastest time
of the 880 qualifiers with a 1:
55.6 time. Pete Gray of Michi-
gan and Maynard will be bat-
tling for first place today in the
880 event. Earlier this season,
both men tied for first place in a
dual meet at Champaign.
Illinois' mile relay team will
consist of Joe Corley, Cirilo Mc-
Sween, Ralph Fessenden and
Maynard. Corley qualified in the

low hurdles as did teammate Wil-
lie Williams. Fessenden qualified
in the 440 McSween, along with
Corley, placed in the 300.
Michigan's Vallortigara will get
a chance to bring home points in
the 60 yard dash. This event has
two heats for the semi-finals and
one final heat to determine the
winner of the race.

... surprise second
Crown Lost
By Carter
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK -- Bustling Paddy
DeMarco, who appeared headed
for boxing's scrap heap only five
months ago, put on the greatest
fight of his career last night to
wrest the lightweight champion-
ship from 30-year-old Jimmy
Carter in a sensational upset in
Madison Square Garden.
A 4-1 underdog, the 26-year-old
DeMarco, who had never gone
more than 10 rounds before in his
nine year career,' won the 15-
rounder with ease. The decision
was unanimous and was met with
a roar of approval by the slim
crowd of 5,730 which paid $23,727.
* * *
THE broad-shouldered, bow-leg-
ged Brooklyn battler outhustled,
outfought and outmaneuvered the
hard-hitting Carter. DeMarco
made Carter fight the way he
wanted to as he piled up points
with a flicking left jab, flashing
hooks and daring flurries.

The world-famous University of
Michigan 400-yard free style re-
lay team captured the final event
of last night's program in an ef-
fort to catch Ohio State Univer-
sity, which leads 62-55, in the
Western Conference Swimming
Championships. "
The squad composed of Ron
Gora, "Bumpy" Jones, Tom Ben-
ner, and Don Hill, set a new Big
Ten record with a time of 3:23.8,
breaking the old mark of 3:25.4
held by Ohio State.
.* *
OHIO STATE copped the sec-
ond spot in 3:26.4, and Michigan
State took third in 3:31.1. Illinois
placed fourth and Iowa finished
fifth and Purdue was awarded
sixth on the basis of their time in
the preliminaries.
Jones pulled a surprise victory
in the 200-yard breast stroke as
he dethroned the defending Big
Ten titlist John Dudeck' of
Michigan State. His time of
2:21.1 was good enough to edge
BobClemons of Illinois by two-
tenths of a second. Dudeck fin-
ished third in front of Michi-
gan's Mike Delaney.
Dudeck swam neck and neck
with Jones for the first five laps,
with Clemons trailing a far third.
In the sixth lap, he began to fade
while Clemons poured on the
speed. In the final length Clem-
ons pushed Jones to the hilt and
missed winning by a hair. Bert
Wardrop gave Michigan a point
by taking the sixth spot in tjle pre-
THE 50-YARD freestyle pro-
vided an opening thrill. Michigan's
Hill and Ohio State's Dick Cleve-
land splashed to a dead-heat vic-
tory in the record breaking time of
:22.1. This time breaks the old
Big Ten mark of :22.7 which
Cleveland set in 1952. Both Hill
and Cleveland were timed in yes-

terday after-noon's preliminaries
in :22.2.
Jim Walters garnered a sur-
prise second place in the one-
meter diving event. Walters, who
had finished fourth in the pre-
liminary diving with a total of
218.45 points, took top honors
in the evening finals to finish
behind Ohio State's Morley Sha-
piro who had a total of 483.7
points. Walter's total was 476.9
Ohio State captured the third
and fourth positions with Jerry
Harrison totaling 473.55 points
and Fletcher Gilders copping
458.75 points.,
* * *S
IN THE 220-YARD free style,
Ohio State's incompareable Ford
Konno set a new Big Ten record
with a time of 2:06.2. Michigan's
Jack Wardrop finished one-tenth
of a second behind the old rec-
ord, set by Konno in 1952, to cap-
ture the second place slot. Gora

In Finals
Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING - Defending
Western Conference Champion,
Michigan, and Purdue University
put on a great display of strength
yesterday in the preliminary and
semi-final Big Ten wrestling
championships at East Lansing.
Michigan placed three men and
Purdue placed four in the final
round to be held today.
MICHIGAN'S defending cham-
pion in the 130-pound class, Nor-
yard "Snip" Nalan, downed Yukio
SMatsumoto of Illinois, 9-0, in the
preliminary matches. He then
pinned Minnesota's Ed Anderson
at about four and one-half min-
utes of the semi-finals. Nalan will
meet Jim Sinandinos of Michigan
State in what promises to be an
interesting bout in the finals.
Andy Kaul, the 137 pounder
from Michigan, put in another
winning performance, and guar-
anteed his berth in the finals by
pinning Indiana's Howard Fish-
er at 4:06 of the preliminary
round, and went on to defeat
Bill Turner of of Illinois, 6-0, in
the semi-finals. He will meet
Len Vyskoscil of Northwestern
in the final round.
Don Haney defeated Tony Sta-
vole of Ohio State by the biggest
margin of the day, 22-4: Later,
he edged Jerry Seeber of Wiscon-
sin, 6-5. This gives Haney a crack
at the 147-pound championship
when he wrestles Bud Weick of
Purdue in the final round.
* * *
MICHIGAN'S Frank Hirt put on
a very impressive showing yester-
day as he defeated Indiana's Man-
uel Pihakis in the 123-pound com-
petition. In the semi-finals he
was beaten by Purdue's Al Vega,
but rebounded to conquer Ohio
State's John Nicolella, and assur-
ing himself of at least a third or
fourth place slot in the final
The fifth Wolverine who is
competing for one of the top
four places in his weight divi-
sion is John McMahon who will
be wrestling at 157 pounds in
the consolation match for either
third or fourth place.
Two defending champs from
last year were eliminated from the
competition yesterday. Michigan
State's Vito Perrone was dethron-
ed as 167 pound king as was last
year's 147 pound champion, Char-
les Pankow of Indiana.
IN THE 157-pound class, de-
fending champion Bob Hoke, of
Michigan State, will meet Larry
TenPas of Illinois in the final
round. In the 123-pound clash,
Minnesota's Bill Hunt will face
Purdue's Al Vega.
In the other final matches, Tom
Hankins will meet John Winden
in the 167 pound match, Ahmet
Senol of Purdue faces Dick An-
thony of Indiana in the 177-pound

consin will battle Streeter Shin-
ing of Iowa in the heavyweight

Seven members of Michigan's
hockey squad will be making their
last home appearanbe tonight
when the Wolverines meet the
Grand Rapids Rockets of the In-
ternational League in a game at
the Coliseum.
The lastgame on the Wolver-
ines' schedule, before the NCAA
tournament next week-end at Col-
orado Springs, will begin at 8 p.m.
* * a
ORIGINALLY scheduled with
the Windsor Spitfires, the game
had to be rescheduled with the
Rockets because of a conflict with
the Spitfires' playoff dates. j
Winding up their hockey ca-
reers before home fans will be
Captain Jim Haas, defenseman
Bert Dunn, right wing Doug
Philpott, the entire first line of
Doug Mullen, Pat Cooney, and
George Chin, and Michigan's

number one goaltender for the
past three seasons, Willard
"Ike" Ikola.
This leaves only five men from
this year's squad who will prob-
ably return in the fall to play for
the Maize and Blue. Along with
goalie Bill Lucier, the other four
are Neil Buchanan, Bill MacFar-
land, Jay Goold, and Yves Hebert.
IT IS THIS twelve man squad
that will leave next Wednesday for
Colorado in hopes of bringing the
NCAA trophy back to Ann Arbor
for the fourth consecutive year.
The two teams representing the
East in the tournament have not
as yet been chosen and will prob-
ably be picked tomorrow.
The Michigan puckmen go into
tonight's contest with a season's
record of 14 won, 4 lost, and 2
ties, not counting a loss to the

'M' Hockey Team Hosts Grand Rapids

Detroit Red Wings in an exhibi-
tion game. Their league record
was 12 wins, 3 losses, and 1 tie.
Since onlydone game each sea-
son can be designated as an ex-
hibition contest, freshman pros-
pects for next year's squad will not
be able to play. Coach Vic Hey-
liger will be -going along with his
regular line-up in Michigan's final
taste of competition before the big
ones next week.
Physically the squad is in just
about top shape, and barring any
injuries tonight or during practice
next week, should enter the play-
offs at peak efficiency.
Seven men, most of whom have
played thre'e years for the Maize
and Blue, will be out trying to
make their last appearance on
home ice one that the fans will
remember for some time.

Athlete's Success Attributed
To Lengthy Training Program

All sports fans have seen ath-
letes in action in their particular
field of endeavor but few, however,
have seen, or realized, how many
hours, days, and months are spent
in preparing for an event which
may take, at most, an hour.
Swimming like track, cross
country, gymnastics, and other
such sports where activity is on
the individual basis, spend many
months preparing for an event
that will take from 22 to 25 sec-
onds in the 50 yard sprint to 20
minutes in the 1500 meter swim,
longest of aquatic races.
* * * .
MICHIGAN'S swimmers begin
their workouts early in October
for a season that doesn't begin un-
til after the New Year.
For example, let us consider
thework of John Chase, Michi-
gan's first string backstroker.
Chase's distance in competition,
is two hundred yards. He can
negotiate this distance in 2.13.2
In preparing for this event
Chase works out every day, each
day a different workout, usually
decided upon by Coach Matt
Mann. Each day's workout is .pre-
ceded by a warmup that consists
of swimming ten to twenty lengths
to get the heart beating faster.
* * *
MANN'S basic workout for his
swimmers is a 30-30-40 setup that
means kick 30 lengths with a kick-
board, then pull thirty with an in-
nertube, and finish with a 40
length swim. This adds up to a
total of 100 lengths, 72 of which
make a mile.
One of Chase's favorite work-
outs is swimming ten hard after
his warmup and follows these

with 20 to 30 lengths with the
kickboard. This, he explains,
rests the top part of the body
and strengthens the legs. Upon
finishing the kicks, he swims
ten more hard and pulls 20 to 30
lengths with the innertube to
rest the lower portion of his
body while building up his arms.
He finishes this workout with
20 swimming, 20 pulling or
kicking, and 20 more swimming
* * * .
OTHER DAYS are spent doing
"locomotives." These are ten
length swim, where each length
is accelerated so that the tenth
one is practically a dead sprint.
Chas does six of these as one day's
At least once a week Chase
likes to take a day out for a dis-
tance swim, about 72 to 100
lengths, at a pace that relaxes
the body. He lays great stress on
his turns in this workout.
There is no set idea for work-
outs on the Michigan swim team.
Variation is the key word. Mann
often doesn't know himself what
he'll have his men do until they
walk in to the pool at four o'clock.
Commenting on how athletics
affect his academic endeavors at
the University, Chase said that it
"knocks you out at the beginning,
but you get used to it. In the be-
ginning of the season you can
hardly hold your head up some-
times." He said that he slept aft-
er dinner upon occasion following
an exceptionally difficult workout.
He also commented that a sport
acts as a diversion from academic
work and the time lost from study
in the beginning is made up when
he gets into the routine of every
day practice.
