WELL-BALANCED TEAM:
Lettermen Bolster Track Prospects

(Second in a series of articles intro-
ducing the 1955 traok squad. The first
article dealt with the addition of
promising sophomores to this year's
team.)
By STEVE HEILPERN
and CORKY SMITH
As for the backbone', of the
team, Coach Don Canham cites
? several veteran cindermen whom
he expects to pick up many points
in the approaching campaign.
John Moule and Ron Walling-
ford are back at their spots in the
mile and 2-mile runs respectively.
Moule; a senior and captain of
the 1955 track squad, will figure
highly in Michigan's hopes for
taking the Big Ten track title. In
his sophomore year he ran a 4:12.9
mile and has been a member of
many outstanding relay teams.
Much of the success of last year's
2-mile relay team can be attrib-
uted to his impressive running.
The quartet set a new indoor
mark of 7:35.0, the second fastest
time recorded on the boards. Out-
doors, the team averaged better
than 1:53.0 per man (each one
running a 880-yard leg) to finish
in 7:32.0.
Moule displayed his endurance
in distance races by placing
fourth in the Big Ten cross coun-
try meet at Chicago last fall.
Ron Wallingford, Wolverine 2-
mile run specialist, is one of the
hardest workers on the squad. Two

years ago, as a freshman,-he set
a mile run mark with a time of
4:48.0 in the Annual Kennedy Re-
lays at Windsor, Ont. Last season
in the 2-mile event Wallingford, a
native of Ottawa, Can., took two
first places in Pacific Coast com-
petition against Stanford and
UCLA. In the Stanford meet he
traveled the distance in a good
9:28.6.
Pete Gray, in the 880, and Grant
Scruggs, in the 440, make the Wol-
verines strong in the middle dis-

cage team comes to town to

tances, while John Vallortigara
and Bob Brown are the returning
sprinters.
Gray, from St. Petersburg, Fla.,
turned in several spectacular per-
formances last year in the 880-
yard run. His best time of 1:52.1
was recorded in a dual meet last
spring. In the Coliseum Relays at
Los Angeles he ran one lap of the
2-mile relay in an unofficial 1:48.2.
He was third in the National
Championships last June.
The Wolverines' best 440-yard
run man is Grant Scruggs, a senior1

from Cleveland, O. His best per-
formance came in the National
Collegiate championships 1 a s t
June. He ran a :47.9 quarter mile
to take 7th place in the fastest
440 race in NACC history.
As 'anchor' man on the mile re-
lay team against Illinois last year
he turned in a fine time of :47.6
(unofficial because of the running
start). Scruggs' best winning time
in the quarter mile event is :48.5,
set at a Michigan AAU track meet
his sophomore year. Also two years
ago he placed second in the Big
Ten Indoor Meet and fifth in the
Conference Outdoor Meet.
John Vallortigara, a senior from
Chicago, Ill., is one of Michigan's
best'dash men. Injured his sopho-
more year, he came back strongly
last season winning several races.
His best 60-yard dash time is :06.4.
In the 100-yard dash he has been
clocked in :09.8.
Last year, in the fieldhouse, he
ran the 300-yard run, an event
which recently became an official
race in Conference meets. He will
probably run this event this year
also.
Dave Hessler is another sprint-
er with impressive dash times. He
has run a :06.5 60-yard dash in-
side and has a fast time of :09.9
for the 100-yard dash to his cred-
it.
Little Mark Booth, high jump-
er, and Howard Liverance are
back for the Wolverines. Booth
took a first place in the event in
the pre-vacation Christmas time
trials. Liverance, who hails from
Birmingham, Mich., has cleared
6'3", and should lend depth to
Canhams' charges in the high
jump event.
Jim Love, a resident of Ann Ar-
bor, will be running the hurdle
events. He has run the 220-yard
hurdles (outside) in :23.4, the
second fastest time in Michigan
history.

through the Spartan defense for
a score at 13:18 when Goold blast-
ed in a shot fro mshort range dur-
ing a jam-up in front of the nets.
Sparked by Defense
Aided by fine defensive work by
"masked" defenseman Bob Schil-
ler and Bernie Hanna, Michigan
was able to hold off the scoring
threats of the losers, while Mac-
Farland was adding the clincher
at 9:32 of the final stanza on a
rebound shot. State was one man
down at the time. A shot seconds
earlier by Schiller had missed by
inches, hitting the goal post and
skimming out.
Coach Vic Heyliger attributes
the Michigan win to the fine de-
fensive work of especially Schiller
and Howes and the offensive drive
of Dunnigan and MacFarland, Jer-
ry Karpinka also played an alert,
spirited game on offense and aided
the fine stick-handling defense.
The reason that Michigan was
not as impressive as in Friday
night's 7-0 triumph at East Lan-
sing, Heyliger says, is that "We
weren't as sharp around the nets
. had the opportunities, but
couldn't score."
Next home game for Michigan
will be an exhibition contest this
coming Tuesday night with the
Detroit Red Wings.

Gym Team
Special to The Daily
SOUTH BEND, Ind.-Good per-
formances by senior Frank Adams
and three "green" sophomores led
Michigan's gymnasts to a lop-
sided 70-26 win over Notre Dame
yesterday afternoon at South
Bend.
It was the first dual meet of the
year for the Wolverines, and
Coach Newt Loken was well
pleased with his team's perform-
ance.
Adams led the squad with wins
in both the High Bar and Tum-
bling. He took a, second in the
Trampoline as well.
Sophomore Wayne Warren won
the Parallel Bar event, and took
third and fourth in the Side Horse
and Flying Rings respectively.
Sophomores Nick Wiese and
Bob Armstrong took a brace of
first places, with Wiese winning
the Flying Rings and Armstrong
taking the Side Horse. Wiese also
took a second in tumbling and
placed third on the high bar.
Burchfield Pulls Upset
Jack Burchfield of the Wolver-
ines pulled an upset s he ,ron the
Trampoline event. He defeated
both Adams and team captain Bill
Winkler, who took second and
third respectively. Burchfield had
placed fifth in that event against
Notre Dame last year.
The Wolverines took the first
three places in four events: Side
Horse, High Bar, Parallel Bars,
and Trampoline. Evie Hatch of
Notre Dame took second in the
Flying Rings, and Mark Healy
placed third in tumbling to break
the Michigan domination.
Loken felt that his sophomores
had come through well. "The boys
looked good," he said. "Particular-
ly the sophomores. They did a
good job."

totaled 14 points and was a tower
of strength under the backboards,
while Shearon capably filled the
shoes of injured Jim Barron.
The host'sheffectiveness was
partly due to their slight superior
ity under the boards. Forwards
John Miller and Don Kelley were
the only consistent rebounders for
the Buckeyes, while Michigan's
Williams, Kramer and Groffsky
were all effective.
The Wolverines hit on 32 of 89
shots from the floor for a 36 per
cent average, while OSU meshed
25 of 71 for 35.2 per cent. Williams
was a standout percentage wise,
scoring on ten of his 20 shots.

MAKE SEASON'S DEBUT:
Tankmen Face Iowa State in Opener

By BOB JONES
The 1955 version of the Michi-
gan swimming team will be reveal-
ed in the Varsity Pool Monday
afternoon as the Wolverines tan-
gle with Iowa State in the first
dual meet of the year.
It will be the debut also of
Coach Gus Stager, who took the
team over from the retired Matt
Mann. Stager, who has been work-
ing his team hard since practice
started in September, is confident
that the Syclones will present no
real difficulty to the Wolverines.
"Iowa State has some good
sprinters," he said, "but no one
who can touch Ron Gora, Bumpy
Jones or the Wardrops."
Cyclones Tough
The Cyclones have enough good
swimmers, however, to make them,
as Stager says, "the toughest
team we'll meet outside of Ohio
State."
Standouts on the Iowa State
team are Jim McKevitt, free-
styler and individual medley-man;
Mike LaMair, butterfly-swimmer;
Bob Best in the orthodox breast-
stroke; and Loran Braught in the
back-stroke.
Cooley Wins
I-M Cage Tilt
By PETE LEVINSON
Cooley and Gomberg, respective
runners-up in last year's Resi-
dence Hall A and B basket-
ball tournaments, overwhelmed
the A and B Michigan House cage
squads in the Sports Building yes-
terday afternoon.
The Cooley A squad smashed to
a 58-29 victory over the hapless
Michigan cagers astwo men of
each team reached double figures.
Jim Cruthers of Cooley took high-
scoring honors with 26 points
while teammate Kim Greene had
16 points and Jim Dickey and M.
C. Hamlin garnered ten each for
the losers.
Michigan House took another
beating in the B sqad game at the
hands of Gomberg, 55-10. All but
four of Gomberg's players broke
into the scoring column with Bob
Gardner dumping in 11 points to
lead the attack.
In the Adams-Greene tilt, Ad-
ams emerged the winner by a 45-
27 count. High scorer was Gordon
Emery who accounted for 13
points.
Reeves House A team sank Hu-
ber to the tune of 48-14 while Wil-
liams whipped Anderson, 34-15.
With Art Wible leading the way,
Lloyd House scored a 38-25 deci-
sion over Van Tyne.
Allen-Rumsey defeated Scott,
38-31 and Kelsey bowed to Strauss,
32-25. Taylor downed Winchell,
33-27 as George Stathopoulis toss-
ed in 16 points for the victors.
In the B squad division Hayden
outscored Taylor, 38-33, and
Reeves crushed Van Tyne, 32-7.
Adams beat Lloyd, 22-15, and
Hinsdale trounced Williams, 39-17.
Other B squad scores were Coo-
ley over Kelsey, 23-14: Wenley
over Strauss, 32-24; and Scott over
Anderson, 37-15.

RON GORA
. * . strong sprinter

_ y .r'S
P'
i
J
:.ยข

McKevitt, who swam at Michi-
gan his freshman year, is the only
free-styler who can give Gora a
race in the sprints. In the East-
West meet in Florida over Christ-'
mas vacation he also showed his
ability in the individual medley by
placing third behind Jack Ward-
* rop and Jones of Michigan.
Best, who won the 100-meter
orthodox event in Florida, will go
against sophomore Jim Thurlow
in Monday's meet.

Braught will probably face Bert
Wardrop in the 200-yard back-
stroke event. Wardrop placed sec-
ond in the 200-meter event in
Florida, while Braught, placed
fifth.
The breast-stroke rule change
will relegate LaMair to the relay
event only, unless his orthodox
stroke has improved considerably.
But his butterfly leg on the med-
ley relay combined with the speed
of Braught and McKevitt should
give the Michigan trio a good
race.
The meet should reveal the be-
ginnings of the answer to the
question of whether Stager has
the free-style sprinting strength
necessary for a Conference cham-
pionship. If Gora shows the speed
expected of him in the 100-yard
free-style, the Wolverines should
have the stuff to make them
champions.
South Wins, 12-6
MOBILE, Ala. (AP)-The South
rallied with two long touchdown
drives in the second half to over-
power the North, 12-6, in the
Senior Bowl yesterday.
