Indiana Wins
Nerveless Bobby Leonard drop-
ped in four free throws in the
last minute for Indiana and
the Hoosiers beat hard-work-
ing Illinois last night, 67-64,
for their second straight Big
Ten championship and a
chance to defend their 1053
NCAA title.
Don Schlundt, Indiana's 6-
toot-10 center, set a new Big
Ten 14-game season record of
379 points, rubbing out the old
mark. of. 364. set. by. Iowa's
Chuck Durling In 1952.
All-America Schlundt already
held the Big Ten 18-game sea-
son record of 459 from last year.

Winners Edge Second-Place
Wolverines; Spartans Third

BUMPY JONES AND TOM BENNER-led Michigan's swimmers
in their futile bid for the Big Ten title. Jones swept to new
American, collegiate, and conference records in the 150-yard
individual medley, while co-captain Benner swam a great lap
in the 300-yard medley relay to close his collegiate career in
fine style.

with fifths in the 100-yard breast-
stroke and individual medley, Bob
Van Heyde, who captured a third
in the 100-yard breaststroke, and
Fletcher Gilders, a fourth place
finisher in both diving events, sur-
prised the experts and played a
big part in breaking the Michigan
t depth advantage.
Indirectly instrumeiltal in the
Buckeye win were finalists Ed
Schelonka, of Wisconsin, Chris
Mednel, of Purdue, Dick Pen-
nington, of Iowa, and Bill Kerr,
of Indiana. All four men were
unexpected finalists and played,
a big part in diminishing the
Wolverine depth advantage.
The meet was the final home
contest for Mann, who is retiring
at the end of this season as Wol-
verine swimming coach. The grey-
haired veteran of 29 Big Ten cam-
paigns received a standing ova-
tion from the crowd of nearly
1000 spectators who packed the
Varsity Pool bleachers.

sity and an old friend of Mann,
Iowa coach David Armbruster, the
dean of the conference swimming
coaches, and ex-Michigan natator
Jim Christie paid tribute to one
} of the greatest figures in collegiate
swimming history.
Michigan State managed to grab
third place with 35 points to finish
ahead of Illinois, with 25. Other
team totals were Purdue, 20; Wis-
consin, 13; Northwestern, 12;
Iowa, 10; and Indiana, 2. Minne-

EAST LANSING-Purdue walk-
ed off with the Big Ten Wrestling
Championship here yesterday aft-
ernoon in Jenison Fieldhouse as it
defeated a fired-up Michigan
squad by a score of 26-22.
Michigan's grapplers had all the
fight and spirit that a defending
champion could possess but the
depth of the Boilermakers proved
too much for them.
* * *
IN ONE OF the most unusual
matches ever recorded in the Big
Ten record books, Wolverine Don
Haney lost to Bud Weick of Pur-
due. Both men wrestled a very
clever and tough match for the full
nine minutes with the score end-
ing in a 1-1 tie.
The decision was then in the
hands of the referees, two of
whom acted as Judges watching
every move of both wrestlers,
with the third serving as mat
referee awarding points as they
were scored by each man. All
three referees then marked their
ballots and the results gave
Weick the championship.
Captain Norvard "Snip" Nalan
captured his third Big Ten 130
pound crown in as many years as
he downed Jim Sinandinos of
Michigan State by a 5-3 score. Sin-
andinos, who compiled a 7-2 rec-
ord during the dual meet season,
had won the National AAU 136
pound title last year as a fresh-
THIS IS Nalan's last taste of
competition in the Big Ten, but
he will not finish his collegiate
career until he competes in the
NCAA meet in three weeks at Nor-
man, Oklahoma. He will also be
defending champion in this meet
as he holds the 130 pound title.
Andy Kaul copped the sec-
ond Michigan championship as
he defeated Len Vyskoscil of
Northwestern, 4-1. Kaul had de-
feated Vyskoscil in the third
match of the season as the Wol-
verines defeated the Wildcats,
Kaul is only a junior and will
have the opportunity to defend hisI
crown next year when he will be
in his fourth season of inter-col-
legiate competition. This is due to
the fact that he competed as a
freshman the one year it was al-

HOW4VER these weren't the
only point-getters for Coach Cliff
Keen's aggregation as under the

conference scoring system of six
points for first, four for second,
two for third, one for fourth, and
one for every fall, four other grap-
plers added points to the Wolver-
ine cause.
Michigan sophomore Frank
Hirt placed fourth in the 130
pound division when he lost to
Terry McCann, 8-0, in the con-
solation matches held after the
John McMahon who was wrest-
ling at 157 pounds also received a
fourth place when he was downed
by Harlan Jenkinson of the Iowa
FORMER Wolverine gridder Bob
Hurley gave one of the most im-
pressive performances of the en-
tire meet when he wrestled to a
fourth place finish, losing to Lar-
ry Fowler of Michigan State in the
consolation event.
Hurley, a senior, has been
wrestling for only five weeks and
yet he held Fowler, who has
competed for three years, to a
1-1 tie. The match was awarded
to Fowler on a referee's deci-

ing Rockets gave the Wolverines
a real tune-up for the coming
NCAA tourney, and won only be-
cause their defense was 'slightly
more solid.
The game was the highest
scoring tilt of the year for Mich-
igan, and also was one of the
roughest. Doug Mullen, who
played 21 straight games this
season with nary a scratch, re-
ceived a gash in his mouth re-
quiring five stitches, while Rog-
er Maissoneuve, Grand Rapids
winger was knocked unconscious
in the second period, and carried
off the ice on a stretcher. Mais-
soneuve suffered a slight con-
Grand Rapids opened the game
by scoring four straight goals, be-
fore Mullen finally hit for Michi-
gan at 12:45 of the initial period.
The Rockets came right back with
their fifth, but Pat Cooney took
a pass from Mullen with a min-
ute and 13 seconds left to play
and blasted Michigan's second
goal home, making the first per-
iod score read 5-2, in favor of
Grand Rapids.
been outskated and outscored in
the first round came back strong
in the second period, but not
strong enough to take a lead.
Both teams scored twice in this"
period, Michigan's goals coming
from the sticks of Bill MacFar-
land and Jay Goold.
The third period was perhaps
the wildest period of the year

for Michigan, as Goalie Bill
Lucier entered the nets for the
Wolverines. Nine goals were
registered as the Rockets staved
off a Michigan rally with a rally
of their own.
The Wolverines pulled to with-
in one goal of Grand Rapids, as
Doug Philpott and Mullenscored
to cut the Rockets' margin to 7-6
But the wily pros came roaring
back, scoring three straight times
to break the Michigan rally and
sew up the contest.
LUCIER was the target, as the
Wolverine defenses folded and left
the goalie often unprotected. Once,
with two Rockets moving down
the ice on a breakaway, Lucier
had to come out of the net a
good twenty feet to break up the
threat himself.
George Chin, playing his last
home game as a Wolverine (along
with Captain Jim Haas, Doug
Philpott, Willard Ikola, Doug Mul-
len, Pat Cooney, and Burt Dunn)
was the biggest gun for Michigan
in the final stanza. Chin scored
twice late in the game, but it was
not enough to salvage a victory.

BLOOMINGTON - Michigan's
gymnasts turned up here yester-
day afternoon for next weekend's
Big Ten championship meet by
coasting to .an eashy62-34 victory
over Indiana.
The Wolverines took every first1
place to rack up their fifth
straight win, but only their first
decision of the season in an op-
position gym. It brought Newt Lo-
ken's squad's final dual meet mark
to a neat seven victories against
two defeats.
* * *
IT WAS LEE Krumbholz who
again sparked Michigan to the
victory. The slender blond senior,
competing in his last dual meet
for the Maize and Blue, racked up
20 points with two firsts, a second,
a third and a fifth.
For the second straight meet,
Krumbholz pulled An upset to
annex the top high bar point
totals. Last Wednesday he edged
out Michigan State's great Carl
Rintz by four points in a thrill-
ing dual and last night he came
through to beat Indiana's star
Ron Feigl.
Feigl, one of the country's best
in his speciality, had been unbeat-
en in high bar competition this
season. Krombolz scored 260
points to Feigl's 242.
* * *
HIS OTHER first place effort
came with litle competition as he
worked to a neat 242 on the side
horse. Teammate Tony San An-
tonio nabbed second place, 68
points in arrears with a 174.
Dick Bergmen, also winding
up his dual meet career for
Michigan, turned in his best per-

formance of the year as he won
the flying rings.
Executing his double fly-away
in outstanding fashion, the be-
spectacled Wolverine impressed
the judges to the result of 280
points, easily the top total of the
evening. Krumbholz nabbed sec-
ond with a 217.
* * *
CAPTAIN Marv Johnson, Bill
Winkler and Frank Adams took
the other first places with wins on
the parallel bars, trampoline and
in tumbling respectively.
Johnson, the remaining of the
senior trio on the team, won his
first victory since injuring his
wrist two weeks ago when he
grabbed honors on the parallel
bars. He took place points in
three other events to make his
contribution to Michigan's team
total 13 points.
Both still rings and free exer-
cise were instituted into yester-
day's meet in anticipation of
those events next week in the
Western Conference meet at Ohio
