Tankers Top Iowa, 62-31;
Three Records Established

.-

By SOL ROSEN
With the Ohio State dual meet!
only a week away, the undefeated
Michigan swimming team receiv-
ed their final tuneup last night as
they drubbed the Iowa Hawkeyes
62-31, in the varsity pool.
Performing before a capacity
crowd in their second home dual
meet, the Wolverines captured
seven of the ten events, while two
tankmen broke pool and varsity
records in the process
Captain Burwell "Bumpy" Jones,
swimming in his specialty, the
150-yard individual medlay, low-
ered the pool mark which he
owned, by .5 of a second, as he
raced through the water in 1:29.
Jones, who defeated his nearest
competitor, teammate Fritz Myers
by a considerable margin, was not
pushed at all,
Wardrop Sets 150 Mark
Jack Wardrop, one half of the
Maize and Blue's twin &ottish
terrors, also set a new pool rec-
ord, as he eclipsed Ford Konno's
mark in the 220-yard freestyle by
:1.2 seconds. The Buckeye splasher:
was clocked in that event at last
year's Big Ten meet, which was
held in Ann Arbor, at 2:06.3,
while Wardrop hit the finish line
r in 2:05.1.
Wardrop defeated his team-
mate John O'Reilly by more than
six lengths, with Ross Lucas bring-
ing up the rear.
Not to be out done by the Maize
and Blue natators, Lincoln Hur-
ring of Iowa also established a
new pool record, as he was clock-
ed at 2:07.5 for the 200-yard back-
stroke event. Hurring was never
threatened by his nearest rival,
Bert Wardrop, as he broke the
record held by Yoshi Oyakawa of
Ohio State. Oyakawa traveled the
course in 2:09.:2.

Dick Pennington pulled the up-
set of the evening when he de-

sprinter Ron Gora, in the 50-yard
freestyle event. Pennington, who
hit :23 in the 50-yard freestyle,
lost to his adversary when they
faced each other again in the 100-
yard freestyle race. Gora, edged
his rival by less than a foot, as he
hit the tape in :51.8.
Michigan's John O'Reilly and
Iowa's Lucas waged a nip-and-

verine natator emerged victorious,
posting a winning time of 4:49.1.

Gym Squad
Triumphant
Over Indiana
Takes All Firsts
In 71-22 Victory
By JIM BAAD
Sweeping firsts in every event
and the top three places in three
events, Michigan gymnasts downed
Indiana by the impressive score of
71-22.
The only double winner in Mich-
igan's fourth win was Frank Ad-
ams, who topped the high bar and
the tumbling events with scores of
241 and 250 points respectively.
Teammate Nick Wiese took sec-
onds in these two events and add-
ed a first place performing on the
flying rings, accumulating 260
points for an excellent effort.
A happy surprise for coach Newt
Loken was Norm Neidermeier's ac-
tion on the parallel bars. Neider-
meier's routine earned him 251
points and a first place. Closely
following in second and third spots
were Wayne Warren and Chico
San Antonio, both of Michigan.
Winkler Takes First
Captain :Bill Winkler grabbed
first place in his specialty, the
trampoline, by twisting and turn-
ing for 256 points. Frank Adams
and Jack Burchfield of Michigan
placed behind him in that order.
San Antonio won 237 points for
his performance on the side horse
which was plenty enough for an-
other Michigan first. His closest
competito rwas teammate Wayne
Warren who was 20 points short of
the winning mark.
Top performer for Indiana was
Dick Heechen, who took a second
on the Flying rings and thirds in
both the high bar and tumbling.
"Now we are looking forward to
the Ohio State meet next Friday,"
Loken said. "They have been beat-
en by the same three teams we
have, so it ought to be a tough,
touch-and-go meet."

Special to The Daily
EVANSTON, Ill. - Michigan's
wrestling team bounced back from
its two recent setbacks in Big Ten-
competition and trounced the
Northwestern Wildcats, 21-8.
By winning this meet, Michigan
extended its winning s t r e a k
against the Wildcats to 21. The
Wolverines have not been defeat-
ed by Northwestern since 1931.
Although Michigan swept
through five of the eight matches,
and won the meet with compara-
tive ease, the Wolverines found
themselves in one of their more
surprising and unusual matches of
the year.
Rodriguez Pulls Upset
The biggest upset was Mike Rod-
riguez' defeat of previously un-
beaten Ken Kraft in the 157 pound
division. Rodriguez, who has been
hot and cold this season, was in
rare form, and it took him but a
little over two minutes to pin his
opponent.

In the 130 pound class, North-
western's Donald Duck proved to
be every bit as smart as his name-
sake as he held the favored Frank
Hirt to a 4-4 draw. This was noth-,
ing new to Hirt who has wrestled
to a draw in three of his last four
matches.4
Captain Andy Kaul had his eas-
iest match of the year as he won
by forfeit from Bob McCray,
Northwestern's 147 pounder. Mc-
Cray, who did not even bother to
weigh in for the match, gave no
explanation for his withdrawal.
Melgaard Wins First
The surprises continued as Paul
Melgaard, Michigan heavyweight,
outscored Joe Novak 9-6 in one
of the day's hardest fought match-
es. The happy Melgaard thus
notched his first win of the year,
and Michigan's first in the heavy-
weight class.
In another close match, North-
western's captain, Bob Christen-

sem, a finalist in the NCAA 115
pound championships in 1953, nip-
ped Dan Deppe 3-2.
In the 177 pound division, Tom
Krause was defeated by Jerry Re-
mien, 9-4, for the Purple and
White's only other victory.
In the remaining matches, 137
pound Max Pearson topped John
McShane, 9-5, and unpredictable
John McMahon downed Ted
Struve, 7-2 in the 167 pound class.
Keen Pleased
Coaches Cliff Keen and assistant
Bob Betzig, were both pleased with
the performance of their grapplers
today. Betzig felt that they showed
a definite improvement over the
last two weeks. They seemed to
have more "fire and fight," he said.
Betzig went on to say that Mich-
igan is undoubtedly "on the way
back, and if they continue at this
pace should do pretty good in the
conference meet next month."
Michigan star, Don Haney, the
only unbeaten man on the squad,
did not make the trip to Evanston
with the team. Coach Keen de-
cided to give some of the younger
men a chance to gain experience,
as well as rest Haney for the meet
with Michigan State Monday aft-
ernoon.
Meet MSC Tomorrow
The meet should prove to be an
interesting one in as much as both
squads have their strength in the
same weight divisions. The Spar-
tans are led by Ted Lennox, the
blind 167-pound grappler.

To Sweep Weekend Series

(Continued from Page 1)

iod until Neil Buchanan took a
pass from Jay Goold at 18:36 to
increase the Wolverine lead and
finish the scoring for the night.
Gophers Try Rally
Minnesota became desperate in
the final period and made several
all out attempts to score but to
no avail. With three minutes re-
maining they pulled Mattson out
of the nets in a last-ditch effort
to tie the contest.
During this time Rendall man-
aged to break away with the puck
and he skated in all alone on the
vacant Minnesota net only to have
his shot go wide of the goal mouth.
Howes in Top Form
Wolverine goalie Lorne Howes
continued in top form as he made
33 saves to Mattson's 19. Michi-
gan's defense was leaky and er-
ratic and did not give Howes ade-
quate protection throughout the
contest.
Although the Wolverinesanow
appear to be infar better shape
than previously they still have a

long way to go. Besides the crucial
series with North Dakota next
weekend there also remains to be
played a series with the also high
flying pucksters of Michigan Tech
the week after.
They must not only sweep first
series but must also take one of
the Michigan Tech encounters to
retain a decent chance of making
the national playoffs.

(Continued from Page 1)
After the contest, Coach Bill
Perigo was bemoaning the fact
that his team should have their
worst shooting performance of the
season against one of the top
teams In the nation. The Wolver-
ines could only connect on 26 of
91 from the field, a dismal 29 per
cent.
The worst offenders were Don
Eaddy and Groffsky. The slender
guard could connect on only one
of 14 tries, while Groffsky made
two floor shots in 14 attempts.
In almost every game this sea-
son, inability to make free throws
has hurt Michigan; yesterday was
no exception. The Maize and Blue
missed 10 charity tosses in 23
chances. Kramer blew four and
Groffsky made none in three tries.
Lack of an adequate playmaker
continues to plague Michigan.
Time after time the Wolverines
would bring the ball down and
shoot without working the leath-
er around. The guards had great
difficulty in working the ball into
Kramer for the keyhole was al-

Few Bright Spots
There were a few bright notes
in the picture. Kramer played an-

other excellent game proving to
all that he is one of the best in
the conference. Yesterday, he
showed a picturesque hook shot, a
fine one-hander and great compet-
itive spirit. The sophomore played
a good defensive game, making five
steals in the first half alone.
Shearon, in his few minutes of
action, also played well. With Ead-
San teemWins
NEW YORK (P)-Wes San-
tee, the Kansas Cowboy, won
the rubber match in the famed
Santee - Gunnar Nielsen - Fred
Dwyer mile series last night at
Madison Square Garden, taking
the national AAU title in the
comparatively slow time of
4:07.9.
dy having shooting trouble in the
last few games, the lithe guard is
sure to see more action in the fu-
ture.
Harvey Williams rejoined the
squad and played a few minutes.
He couldn't seem to cope with Sim-
onovitch, though, and was quickly
removed.
