RIP GOPHERS TWICE:
Icers Eye North Dakota
As Playoff Hopes Rise

By DON LENDMAN
Despite the news that Ohio
State's Al Wiggins has lowered his
national individual medley record
to 1:26.2, Michigan's swimming
team was quietly confident yester-
day as it started its final week of
practice before the crucial dual
meet encounter with the national
champion Buckeyes this Saturday
afternoon in the' Varsity Pool.
The hopeful proteges of Coaches
Gus Stager and Bruce Harlan
First Come,
First Served!
Tickets for the swimming
meet with Ohio State will be
available only on the day of
the meet at the Varsity Pool
door. The meet is scheduled for
1:30 p.m. on Saturday.
manhandled Iowa's tank team last
Saturday, 62-31, to continue un-
beatenain dual meet competition.
The last dual meet defeat for the
Wolverines came at the hands of
the same Buckeye squad in last
year's encounter at Columbus.
Michigan freestyler Jack War-
drop warmed up for his encounter

with Buckeye Ford Konno by turn-
ing in a time of 2:05.1 for the 220-
yard event, breaking his own pool
and varsity record of 2:05.4. The
NCAA champion over the 220-yard
distance, Wardrop missed Konno's
national mark by only four-tenths
of a second. Konno's best time of
the season is a 2:05.3, good enough
for only a second place finish
against Indiana's Bill Woolsey.
John O'Reilly, who topped
Iowa's Ross "Buddy" Lucas in
both the 220 and 440-yard free-
style, and Harrison Wehner, edged
out by Lucas in a tight battle for
second in the 440, also were bright
spots in the one-sided'victory. Lu-
cas, who placed sixth in the long-
er event in the 1954 Big Ten
meet, has been one of the better
distance freestylers in the confer-
ence for the past two years.
Knox In Shape
Another hearteiing performance
was the race turned in by Bob
Knox in anchoring the free style
relay. The Wolverine junior kept
pace with All-American Dick Pen-
nington over most of the 100-yard
distance, only to fade in the final
few yards. His effort was good
enough to produce a time of under
:53, however.

DON CANHAM LORNE HOWES
... awaits Buckeyes ... a job well done
Th inclads o 0Trys fr
Win in Row ThsAteno

By DAVE GREY
Coach Vic Heyliger's "never say
die" hockey forces have returned
to Ann Arbor after a clean sweep
of two games with Minnesota this
past weekend and are now setting
their sights on overcoming Michi-
gan Tech's one-half point lead in
the wild race for second place in
the Western Intercollegiate Hock-
ey League, and an NCAA playoff
berth.
If the Wolverines can manage
to beat North Dakota twice this
coming Friday and Saturday in
a four-point series here and Mich-
igan Tech were to lose two to
league-leading Colorado College,
Michigan wo ul1d automatically
gain the much sought after play-
off berth.
Tech Needs Win
If Tech can manage at least to
split the Colorado series, the final
outcome will hinge on the Michi-
gan-Michigan Tech two - game
clash the following weekend at the
Coliseum.
Defense has been the key to the
recent surge of the determined
Michigan sextet. Goalie Lorne
Howes was little short of sensa-
tional in holding John Mayasich
and Company to three meager tal-
lies in the two games at Minne-
apolis. Heyliger also praised the
fine work by defensemen Bob

Schiller, Bob Pitts and Mike Bu-
chanan and Bernie Hanna.
The 5-2 and 3-1 whippings of
the erratic Gophers were the 3rd
and 4th straight league wins in a
row for Michigan. The reinstate-
ment of Tom Rendall, who has
garnered seven goals in four games
since his return, and the addition
of Mike Buchanan have definitely
added the needed offensive spark
and depth.
Michigan Hopes at Peak
The Maize and Blue hopes are
at the highest peak so far this
season, but Heyliger is still not
overly optimistic when he looks at
the tough games ahead. "We have
a 50-50 chance" of making the
playoffs," says Heyliger. His squad
is tired and he looks for North Da-
kota to be "awfully rugged."

was followed by New York Univer-
sity and the Wolverines. George-
town's Hoyas laced fourth and
highly-touted Manhattan dropped
to fifth.
Michigan's time was its best of
the season, 7:44.0.
Also competing under the Gar-
den roof was freshman pole vault-
er Eeles Landstrom, who cleared
14 feet but was in a field which had
six vaulters, including Bob Rich-
'ards and Don Laz, over the 14'6"
mark.
Saturday was an off-day for
Don Canham's tracksters, since a
scheduled dual meet with Illinois
at Yost Field House was cancelled.

By STEVE HEILPERN
Michigan's high-flying track
squad seeks its third straight dual
meet victory .of the indoor season
as it takes on Ohio State at Yost
Field House this afternoon.
The meet is scheduled to begin
at 4 p.m.
The Buckeyes, who haven't
beaten the Wolverines since 1949,
will offer topnotch competition in
the broad jump, 60-yard dash, mile
run, and the mile and two-mile re-
lays. The squad from Columbus
will also press the hosts in the
440 and 880 events.
Ohio coach Larry Snyder is
counting on Lee Williams, a sopho-
more star, to challenge Junior
Stielstra and Tom Hendricks in
the broad jump. Williams has
leaped over 23 feet in his first year
of competition, and is also a threat
in the 60-yard sprint.
Snyder will send milers Bob
Weadick and Guy Beretich against
John Moule, who recently ran the
fastest mile of the indoor colle-
giate season, 4:09.9. Weadick is
capable of bettering 4:16, and a
nip-and-tuck race is expected.
The Buckeye speedster finished
fourth in last winter's Big Ten 1,-
000 yard run, and has been im-
proving steadily.
OSU has Frank Zubovich, Al
Roberts, Don Bartels and Meade
Burnett "available for the mile re-
lay. The foursome completed the
course in 3:20.0 against Kansas
earlier this season, 2.5 seconds bet-

ter than Michigan's time against
Notre Dame. Wolverine mentor
Don Canham admits this may be
the most interesting event of the
day.
The quarter-mile will see Bur-
nett vie against Michigan veteran
Grant Scruggs-another close one.
Scruggs turned in a 49.5 440
against the Irish, but Burnett, who
finished sixth in the NCAA event
here last summer, offers stiff com-
petition.
The Wolverines' Pete Gray, who
raced to a meet record of 1:54.5 in
the 880 against Notre Dame, faces
a stiff test when he faces Bartels,
who has been clocked in 1:55.0.
Bartels finished fourth in the Con=
ference indoor 880 last winter.
Michigan closes its dual meet
schedule when it hosts Michigan
Normal here Saturday afternoon.
The Ypsilanti school usually comes
up with one of the country's finer
small college squads, and should
provide the Wolverines with a good
warmup test for the Big Ten meet,
which will be held at East Lansing,
March 4-5.

General Electric now has 131 plants in 101
