Alpha Phi Alpha triumphed over

The regular contest ended in a
scoreless tie, and the game's out-
come was decided on four alternat-

squad could advance far on its
first play, but both scored touch-
downs on the third go-a-round.
Ray Roble threw to Gene Kelly
for the Theta Chis, and Mike

shrugged, and kept his eyes glued
to the field, but this same question

With four of last season's top
performers lost through gradua-
tion, and parallel-bars champ
Harry Luchs out of school for a
semester, gymnastics coach Newt
Loken expects this season to be
one of rebuilding.
Graduation has taken four of
Loken's top point getters; Marv
Johnson, Lee Krumbholz, Dick
Bergman, and Wes Wenrich. John-
son was captain of last year's
squad, which won 7 out of 9 dual
meets, and placed third in the Big

Bergman was a steady perform-
er in the flying rings event, plac-
ing sixth in the Conference meet.
His top performance of the sea-
son came against Indiana when
he ran up an amazing 280 points
out of a possible 300 in his event.
Luchs Lost for Semester
Another hard-felt loss is that af
Harry Luchs, 1952 Big Ten champ
in the parallel-bars. Luchs drop-
ped out of school due to financial
difficulties. Loken expressed hope
that the agile Latvian-born star
would return next semester.
To replace these valuable stal-
warts, Loken has four returning
lettermen and five sophomores.
Bill Winkler, specialist in tum-
bling and the trampoline, will cap-
tain the Wolverines' 1954-55 squad.
He captured the Big Ten trampo-
line title last year and will be
trying for the top again this sea-
Along with Winkler in the tram-_
poline and tumbling events is sen-
ior Frank Adams, another of last
season's regulars. A junior, Jack
Burchfield, will shoulder the load
in the high-bar event, as well as
in the trampoline and tumbling.
San Antonio All-Around Gymnast
Tony San Antonio, erratically
brilliant in his sophomore year,
will try to fill the shoes of the
graduated Krumbholz in the all-
around event. With only one se-
mester of Conference competition
under his belt, San Antonio placed
sixth in the Big Ten in the side-
horse and eighth in the parallel-

Freshmen Look Good
Prospects for the future are
good, says Loken. The freshman
team this year includes two out-
standing gymnasts from Windsor,
Ont., Eddie Gagnier and Allen
Cornwall. Gagnier was voted the
outstanding Canadian athlete of
last year in the junior class (under
18 years of age), and is expected
to go far for the Maize and Blue.
Another outstanding freshman is
John Kreutzer of Detroit.
Loken plans to take some of his
men to the Florida Gymnastic
Clinic which will be held Decem-
ber 27-31 at Sarasota, Florida.
The trip should be of great value
to the squad, says Loken.
