Michigan Natators Win
13th Straight Dual Meet'

Ebert Scores 34 Markers
As OSU Climbs to Eighth
'M' Drops to Ninth in League Standings;
Jorgenson High Scorer for Losers with 21

Even though only three men
won, their points were enough to
win .the meet. Andy Kaul and
Don Haney each pinned their
opponents to garner five points
apiece while Captain "Snip" Na-
Ian won by decision to gain
three more points. The last two
points were credited to sopho-
more Frank Hirt who wrestled
to a draw with his oponent.
Kaul, who was wrestling in the
137-pound slot, met one of Iowa's
three returning lettermen and
managed to pin him with seven
minutes, fifty seconds gone of the
nine match minutes.
THIS GIVES KAUL, junior let-
terman from St. Marys, Pennsyl-
vania, a record of eight victories
in eight starts, five of these wins
at 147 pounds and three at 137. It
is interesting to note th'at his only
loss of his collegiate career was in
the 137-pound championships at
Bloomington, Indiana last year.
In the following match, 147
pounds, Wolverine sophomore
Don Haney of Canonsburg,
Pennsylvania pinned the second
of three Iowa lettermen, Larry
Gertsma, at 4:32. This was Ha-
ney's sixth win as opposed to
one loss..


Captain Nalan, wrestling in his'
regular spot of 130 pounds, held
the upper hand throughout the
match as he piled up eight-points
to Hawkeye Terry McCann's three.
This was McCann's first match of
his collegiate career as he just be-
came eligible as a sophomore the
beginning of this week.
* * *
THIS WAS Nalan's eighth win
in as many starts as he condi-
tions himself for the Big Ten
championships coming the first of
next month. He now holds the Big
Ten and NCAA 130-pound title.
In the first match of the aft-
ernoon, Michigan sophomore
Frank Hirt wrestled Iowa's Dick
Govig to a 1-1 draw giving two
points to each team. Govig, who
is a former state title-holder,
had been undefeated at this
weight of 123 pounds.
After the. first four matches,
Michigan fans then saw the Hawk-
eye's parade of stars.
* * ,
HAWKEYES John Winder at
167 pounds and Ken Leuer at 177
pounds stretched their undefeated


strings to five victories each. Both
men, who were former Iowa high
school champions two years ago,
are leading the Hawks in scoring
with 17 points apiece.
This was Iowa's second loss in
five starts, the first loss being at
the hands of Illinois by an identi-
cal score. Coach Cliff Keen's Wol-
verines whipped the Illini, earlier
in the season, 19-11.
The summaries follow:
123-Frank Hirt (M) and Dick Go-
vig (I), 1-1 (draw)

ry McCann (I), 8-3

Matt Mann removed the wraps
from his Michigan swimming team
last night; the result was a 69-24
slaughter of Michigan State's pre-
viously unbeaten Spartans.
The Wolverine swimmers erased
one national collegiate record and
two pool records as they complete-
ly crushed the highly regarded
charges of Coach Charles McCaf-
their greatest effort for the final
event, the 400-yard freestyle re-
lay. Sprint stars Ron Gora, Tom
Benner, Jack Wardrop, and Don
Hill raced to a new college record
of 3:21.9, completely eclipsing the
old mark of 3:22.4 set in 1952 by
Gora, Bump Jones, Benner, and
Every member 'of the quartet
swam his 100-yard stint under
:51, with Gora being timed in
:50.5, Benner in :50.9, Wardrop
in :50.8, and Hill in :49.7.
Hill had a hand in both :ecords.
The reigning national 50-yard
freestyle champion captured his
pet event in :22.4, erasing by .2 of
a second the pool record he set
earlier this year against North-
THE ONLY Michigan State win-
ner was n a t i o n a l 100-meter
breast-stroke champion John Du-
deck. Dudeck won the 220-yard
breaststroke in 2:19.6, beating Bert
Wardrop by six feet.
The Wardrop twins lived up to
advance notices as they had a
hand in four Wolverine victories
and two seconds. In addition to
his part on the record-breaking
relay team, Jack won the indi-
vidual medley by half a length
and also captured the 100-yard
freestyle. His time for the in-
dividual medley was a brilliant
1:30.3, only .5 of a second away
from Jones' national mark.
Bert was a member of the 300-
yard medley relay team and placed
second in the 200-yard breast-
stroke and the individual medley.
Swimming even with brother Jack
going into the last 50 yards of the
medley, Bert hit his shoulder on

HE PAUSED long enough to
knock it into position and then
went on to beat Spartan Bruce Al-
drich by a scant foot in the race
for second place.
Jones, the national individualj
medley king, won a double free-
style victory. The conference
220-,yard freestyle champion,
Jones beat Gora by three feet in
the 220 and won the 440-yard
freestyle by half -a length from
teammate John O'Reilly.
Mann's last home meet as Mich-
igan's swimming coach was a great
tribute to the veteran of 28 Big
'Ten seasons. A crowd of nearly one
thousand gavethegray-thatched
mentor a standing ovation for
more than a minute at the close of
the contest. Mann's "boys" tossed
him into the pool to climax a spec-
tacular hour and a half of Wolver-
me swimming.

ADAMS, eligible for the first
time, was a surprise to everyone as
he captured both the trampoline
and tumbling events. On the
tramp he executed his leaping and
twisting maneuvers to such a fine
degree that he took 252 points out
of the possible 300, drawing both
gasps and cheers from the. crowd
in the process. Adams took tum-

COLUMBUS - It was too much
Paul Ebert last night, as Michi-
gan's cagers suffered their third
consecutive Big Ten defeat, los-
ing to Ohio State, 97-77.
The 6-4 Ebert threw in ten field
goals, 14 of 1&foul attempts, and
did a top notch job on both back-
boards in leading the Buckeyes to
their third win in ten conference
games. The victory enabled them
to take over eighth place as the
Maize and Blue lropped to ninth.
A 29-POINT third period put the
game out of reach for the Wolver-
ne dribblers.The Buckeye spurt
was highlighted by three straight
25 foot jump shots by Robin Free-
Another feature of the high
scoring third quarter was the
exceptional shooting percentages
of both teams. At one stretch
eight straight shots dented the
twines, four by each squad. Then
the Buckeyes reeled off three
fast breaks, two by Charles Ellis
and another by Freeman, which
opened up a fourteen point gap.
Ohio State scored first and Har-
vey Williams tied the score at two
all. When the Buckeyes scored
again they took a lead which they
never lost.

MICHIGAN trailed at the half
by a 41-32 score and would have
been even farther behind had it
not been for the sensational jump
shots of Tom Jorgenson. Hitting
on his unorthodox fallaway jump
shot Jorgenson led all Wolverine
scorers with 21 points:
Factors which contributedto
the Wolverine defeat were slop-
py passes and amazing foul
shooting byaOhio State. Jim
Barron and Don Eaddy contin-
ually had trouble bringing the
ball up the court. Many out-of-
bound passes were intercepted by
the Buckeyes for easy layups.
The Scarlet and Gray dumped
in only three more field goals than
the Wolverines but found the
range at the charity line for an ex-
cellent 29 of 36. However, the only
Michigan player to leave the con-
test via the foul route was Wil-
liams who left with six minutes re-
maining in the third quarter.
COACH Bill Perigo's proteges

attempts and 15 of 25 free throws.

The Wolverines ran into many
troubles not experienced in their
early season 85-76 win over the
Bucks. In the previous meeting
Eaddy held Freeman, the fifth
highest scorer of the conference,
to 13 points but last night the
flashy sophomore from Cincin-
nati contributed 21 to the Buck
eye total, while Eaddy was able
to net only 2.
In the game played at Ann Ar-
bor, Michigan controlled the back
boards but were out-rebounded
last night. Barron, although he
pumped in 20 points, was far from
top form as many of his shots fell
short, including six free throws.

to hit double figures along with
Jorgenson and Barron, threw 4in
