Buckeyes Score 125.103 Triumph;
Four Records Set at Varsity Pool
Ohio State won its sixth straight Western Conference swimming
title last 'night, outscoring second-place Michigan, 125-103.
Only four points short of the Big Ten team record, the Buckeyes
were pushed to the limit by a Wolverine squad which was trying
desperately to take the meet as a gift for retiring coach Matt Mann.
FOUR RECORD-BREAKING performances highlighted the final
night of action in Michigan's Varsity Pool. One American record,
two NCAA marks, four conference standards, and three pool marks
fell before the greatest collection of swimmers in Big Ten history.
Ohio State's distance freestyle star, Ford Konno, added the
440-yard freestyle to the two victories he had won during the
two previous evenings to become the meet's only triple winner.

clicked on all gears as it humbled
the Michigan cagers, 76-61, before
8,379 appreciative fans at Jenison
Field House last night.
Leading during all but the open-
ing minutes of the game and out-
scoring the Wolverines in every
quarter, the Spartans gave a bril-
liant demonstration of passing,
rebounding, and shooting.

THE VICTORY gave Michigan
State a final Big Ten -record of
4-10 and enabled it to capture sole
possession of eighth place. Michi-
gan finished the season tied with
Purdue for ninth place with three
wins in 14 contests.
Julius McCoy led the Spartan
scoring attack with 24 points.
The lanky 6-2 forward, racking
up most of his tallies on deadly
one-handed jump shots, ended
the year with 409 markers--
the first MSC cager to score
more than 400 in a season.
Center Duane Peterson and
guard Bob Devenny, connecting
for 18 and 14 respectively, also hit
in double figures for Pete Newell's
Tom Jorgensen who sparkled
particularly in the second half,
and Jim Barron shared pointmak-
ing honors for the Maize and Blue
with 17 tallies each.
Poor shooting and inadequate
rebounding brought about Michi-1
gan's defeat. The Wolverines made
only 26.6 percent of their floor
shots and usually had to be sat-
isfied with one attempt at a timne.
BAD PASSING also hurt the'
Wolverines. Tinie and time again
a Michigan cager would work him-

self clear only to have any hope
for a field goal spoiled by a slop-
py pass.
The Wolverines were forced to
do most of their shooting from
outside as State's excellent de-
fense kept the center bottled
up. The Spartans, on the oth-
er hand, were able to work in
for close shots.
Using a deliberate style offense
and setting up their plays nicely
the Spartans broke McCoy, Pe-
terson and Devenny loose for
scores. The winners were success-

David To Conduct Handel Concert

"Six Concerto Crossi, Op. 3," a set of practically unknown works
by Handel will be performed at 8:30 p.m. today in Auditorium A,
Angell Hall by the Collegium Musicum.
Directed by Prof. Hans David of the music school, the specially
gathered chamber orchestra composed of both faculty members and
students will play the "Grossi" using the original score of the com-
poser's time.
PROF. DAVID, who always wanted to play originals, bought the
sets from an English catalog last year. The "urtext" or original
editions were published in the 1730's. In 1780, the second edition was
published from the same plate as the first. These are ,the sets which
will be used in the concert, instead of the usual edited ones which
involve modernized additions.
Special feature of the concert will be the first appearance
here in a public performance of the spinettino, a small harpsichord
originally built in Italy about 1600. The instrument was renovated
by John Callis of Detroit for the University in 1950 and is now one
of the treasures of the Stearns Collection of musical instruments
housed in Hill Auditorium,
