Wol veries' Big Ten Swim
Hopes Rest on Team Depth
By DON LINDMAN
Michigan's chances of dethron-
ing Ohio State as Big Ten swim-
ming champion are a lot brighter,
as a result of the showing. of the
Wolverine natators against Michi-
gan State last Saturday night,
Matt Mann's men showed tre-
mendous depth in overwhelming a'
good Spartan squad, 69-24. Team
depth will play a vital part in
Michigan's fight against an OSU
team boasting several super-stars
but having little depth.

their talents in the freestyle relay
to turn in the best time for the
event in national college swimming
The depth of Mann's Wolver-
ine swimming team is centered
around Bumpy Jones and the
Wardrop twins, Bert and Jack.
The Wardrops took first and sec-
ond places in the individual
medley. in their initial race in
college competition. Jones, who
ordinarily swims the individual
medley for Mann, uses his tal-
ents to capture the 220 and 440,
middle distance freestyle events.
In addition, Bert Wardrop gave
national breaststroke champion
John Dudeck quite a bit of trouble
in the 200-yard breaststroke, fin-
ally finishing second to the Spar-
tan star by about four feet. Bert
also swam breaststroke on the
winning medley relay team.

JACK SHOWED his ability as a
sprinter by winning the 100-yard
freestyle and swimming on the rec-
ord-breaking freestyle relay team.

Yost Field House and suffered- its
fourth straight Big Ten cage loss,
The .Wildcats, fresh from their
sensational 10 point victory over
Indiana Saturday night, connect-
ed on 30 of their 63 floor shots,
a terrific 47.6 percent.

DESPITE THIS display of
marksmanship, the Wolverines
were still in the contest late in
the fourth period, trailing by six
with possession of the ball. At this'
point however Jim Barron, who
played one of his poorest games of
the season, lost the ball twice in a
row and Northwestern turned
these breaks into a pair of clinch-
Northwestern's two big men
(big horizontally and vertically)
gave Michigan fits under the
basket, especially in the first
Harold "Bud" Grant, 6-6, and
Frank Petrancik, 6-8, neither of
whom was the least big shy about
throwing his weight around, tal-
lied 25 points between them in the
initial half to help the Wildcats
to a 48-43 edge at the intermission.

GRANT eventually finished up
as the game's high scorer with 21
When the pair of Northwest-
ern centers slackened their scor-
ing pace in the second half,
Frank Ehmann started connect-
ing, dropping 14 of his 20 tal-
lies through the twines in the
last two periods.
Once the .Wildcats took the lead
at 11-9 in the first quarter, Michi-

Hawkeyes, up to tonight the
co-leaders of the Big Ten bas-
ketball race with Indiana, were
upset here last night by the sur-
prising Buckeyes of Ohio State,
79-66. Iowa's title chances are
now virtually nill, unless it de-
feats Indiana next Monday at
gan was never able to catch up.
Whenever the Maize and Blue
would close the gap, the winners
would come up with a key basket
or two and pull away.
DURING most of the encounter,
Northwestern's lead stayed around
six points, give or take a 'couple.
When Michigan cut the margin to
65-62 early in the final stanza,
the Wildcats applied the pressure
and the next time the losers con-
nected from the floor, they were
trailing 72-63. Northwestern then
coasted to its final 11-point mar-
igan's cause. The failure of Barron
to play up to his usual standards
plus the continued slump of Paulj
Groffsky also hurt the local five.
In the final analysis however,
Northwestern's ability to score
when it had to was the deciding

Coach Newt Lokeh's spirit took
a turn for the better this past Sat-
urday, as his Michigan gymnastics
team rolled to a smashing 651/-
39%/2 victory over Minnesota.
Afterddropping two straight
meets during the between semes-
Jim Winkler, who has been
consistently picking up first
place in tramp competition,
dropped to second behind Adams
against the Gophers. Attempting
a new maneuver, he tired him-
self with too much preparatory
jumping, and consequently was
too fatigued to turn in his usual
performance in the routines.
The most consistent of Michi-
gan gymnasts, Captain Mary John-
son, copped a pair of firsts in the
win over Minnesota, and Lee
Krumbholz turned in his best per-
formance of the season to win the
side horse and give the Wolverines
five wins for the evening.
KRUMBHOLZ has been some-
what of a disappointment all year,
but Saturday he garnered 17
points and should be a factor in
