Tankmen Face OSU in Crucial Test

(*j -

Thirty years ago a young coach
from Detroit guided his first Mich-
igan tank squad to an unbeaten
season with a win over a Big Ten
Champion Northwestern team.
Today, another young coach, one
year removed from a Detroit high'
school coaching career, leads his
unbeaten Wolverine tank squad
against a Big Ten Champion Ohio
State aggregation in its final and
most crucial meet of the season.
Matt Mann, destined later to
gain national reknown as the
"dean" of the nation's swimming
mentors, may have had a some-
what easier task than the one

cessor, and Diving Coach Bruce

Eaddy, Jorgel
Top CM' Bask(
A promising halfback, a star
forward, and a fair-to-middling
high-jumper - these three men
now comprise the first three guards
on the Michigan basketball squad
-Don Eaddy, Tom Jorgenson, and
Jim Shearon.
When Eaddy arrived on the
Michigan campus, he was consid-
ered an excellent football pros-
pect. Although only slightly built,
he had (and still has) the neces-
sary requirements for a good half-
back-speed and agility. After his
freshman year was over, how-
ever, Eaddy realized that he could
not make football and studying a
happy combination, so he volun-
tarily ended his grid career.
Probably one of the best all-
around athletes to hit the Michi-
gan campus in the past several
years, Eaddy also is a star third
baseman on the baseball squad,
having played regularly since his
sophomore year, when he helped
to spark the Wolverine nine to the
NCAA championship in the dra-
matic finals in 1953 at Omaha.

no, and many fans look for the
pool record of 2:05.1 and the var-
sity record of 2:05.0 to fall before
the combined onslaught. Many
observers feel that the collegiate
and world marks of 2:04.7 are also
in danger.
Also a virtual certainty to be
broken are the pool and varsity
marks in the individual medley.
Wolverine Captain Bumpy Jones,
who holds the present standards
of 1:28.7, will probably face Buck-
eye ace Wiggins, who has record-
ed three times under 1:28 and
owns the unofficial collegiate rec-
ord of 1:26.2.
Buckeye Stars Lost
The task inherited by Stager
and Harlan has become somewhat
easier than was anticipated at the
start of the season, due to the un-
expected loss of two Buckeye free-
style stars, sprinter Tom White-

Michigan's big job will be to
keep within ten points of the OSU
men during the first half of the
meet,dsince the Wolverines have
most of their strength in four of
the last five events.
Wolverines Favored
Michigan rules as a definite fa-
vorite in both sprints and enjoys
a slight edge in the freestyle re-
lay and the breastroke. Ohio State
should dominate the backstroke,
while ruling as prohibitive favorite
in the medley relay, individual
medley, and diving. The Wardrop-
Konno duel makes the 220 and 440-
yard freestyle events about even.
Michigan has won 16 of the
meetings in the long rivalry, but
the Buckeyes have dominated the
competition since 1950, registering
four of its eight victories during
that span. Michigan's only win
during the past four years was
against a 1953 Ohio team greatly
weakened by illness to its star
Board of Regents
Hears Finances
"Satisfactory financial results"
for the fiscal year ending June 30,
1954 were reported to the Univer-
sity Board of Regents yesterday by
the Board in Control of Intercol-
legiate Athletics.
The report, which does not in-
clude last fall's football receipts,
showed a profit of $228,573.34.
Plans for a new men's swimming
pool, the remodeling of the press
box at Michigan Stadium, and the
new nine hole golf course were
also reported.

which begins at 3 p.m. (Eastern
[Standard Time), will not how-
ever, be carried in this area.
Coach Bucky O'Connor and his
Hawkeye dribblers will be going
all out to capture the game. Iowa,
pre-season favorites to capture
the Western- Conference cham-
pionship, must win if they are to
keep pace with Minnesota. An
Iowa victory will give them a rec-
ord of 10 conference wins in 12
starts, and put them in a first
place tie with the Gophers.
Michigan, on the other hand,
will be fighting to avert falling
into the lower depths of the Big
Ten. The Wolverines currently
reside in sixth place with a not-
too distinguishable slate of four
victories in 10 efforts.
It will be the last home appear,
ance for the Hawkeyes, and they
will be trying to make it an im-
pressive finale. They will show
one of the most well-rounded
clubs in the league.
Starting for the hosts will be
Carl Cain and Deacon Davis at
the forward slots, 6' 6" Bill Logan
at center, and Bill Seaberg and
Sharm Scheuerman at the guards.
No Scoring Stars
Iowa does not have one out-
standing point-getter as Minne-
sota does, but they do have many
who are capable of hitting in
double figures. Logan, with a 15.7
average, and Seaberg, with a 15.3
average, lead the squad and hold

The game got rough for the first

penalty box simultaneously, but

test and held the Sioux attack in
The Wolverines picked up their
seventh and final marker of the
evening exactly as they had be-
gan. Rendall moved in alone,
right through the Nodaks, and
fired the puck by the luckless
Shultz. Schultz went into the
splits, but it wasn't enough to halt
the second hat-trick of the year
for Rendall.
Coach Vic Heyliger was very
pleased over the outcome, espe-
cially the team balance displayed
for the first time this season. How-
ever he reacted to a query on Mich-
igan's NCAA playoff hopes by just
shrugging his shoulders, rolling
his torn cigar in his mouth, and

Making their final home meet
appearance, seniors Frank Adams
and Bill Winkler bowed out in fine
style yesterday as they led the
Michigan gymnastics team to a
narrow 51-45 win over Ohio State
at the Sports Building.
Adams, who in the final tum-
bling event came through to tie
for first with Buckeye star Don
Perry, played a key role by pre-
venting a clean sweep of the tum-
bling event for Ohio State. If the
dependable Adams had not been
able to place, the whole meet
would have ended in a deadlock.
Winkler Wins
Winkler far outclassed the
Buckeyes in the trampoline with
a high score of 261. Adams, em-
ploying a style of less grace but
more speed than Winkler, twisted
and bounced to a fine second place
total of 252.
The Wolverines were off and
winging when they followed up
the first event of trampoline with
another first and second place in
the side horse. Tony San Antonio
was at his best to notch 244 points,
while sophomore Bob Armstrong
followed with 241, one of his fin-
est efforts this season.

Hirt will face John Nicollela. Hirt
seems to be in a slump, but has
managed to draw four out of his
last five matches, primarily be-
cause of "time advantage."
Melgaard Favored
In the heavyweight division,
Paul Melgaard, who won his first
two matches of the season last
week against Wildcat Joe Novak
and Michigan State's Tom Lennox,
will tangle with Buckeye Ted Ra-
der. Rader, although big, is not
a very great threat.
M i k e Rodriquez, Michigan's
flashy 167 pounder, will again be
counted on to turn in a fine per-
formance. In his first year on the
varsity mat, Rodriquez has won
five of his seven matches, the lat-
est being a victory over previously
unbeaten Ken Kraft of North-
. In the past, Michigan has def-
initely held the upper hand over
the Buckeyes, having lost only one
dual meet with them since 1935.
Last year, with many of the same
wrestlers competing, Michigan
handed the Buckeyes a 15-9 de-
This afternoon's finale will be
but the prelude to the Big Ten
championships held next week in
Minneapolis, where Michigan will

wrestling crown which it lost last

Other big star for Michigan was
Norm Niedermeier. Pitted against
all-around Perry of OSU, the hus-
ky parallel bars expert came out
ahead 261-247. San Antonio placed
a, good third, beating Ohio State
gymnast and NCAA low board div-
ing champ Fletcher Gilders.
Fine Job by Perry
Perry was particularly outstand-
ing in a losing cause. Besides ty-
ing for first in tumbling and tak-
ing a second in the parallel bars,
he also came through with a strong
total of 259 to win the high bar
Michigan looked weakest in this
event with both sophomore Nick
Wiese and San Antonio losing
control and falling hard to the

his specialty, the flying rings, to

Track Squad Faces Michigan
Normal, Bowling Green Today

With their sights on the ap-
proaching Big Ten indoor track
meet, the Wolverine cindermen
will receive their final tuneup this
afternoon, when they meet Michi-
gan Normal and Bowling Green -in
the last home indoor meet.
The contest. which will be held
at Yost Field House, will begin at
1:30, and it should provide Coach
Don Canham a better appraisal of
his material for the conference
Normal Loses Two
While Michigan Normal has lost
both of its dual meets this season,
they have some outstanding cin-
dermen who could give the Maize
and Blue a rugged afternoon.
The outstanding race of the aft-
ernoon, will be the 60-yard. dash.
The Hurons will enter Marvin
Pierce against the Wolverines'
John Johnson in a dash that
should be decided by the closest
of margins.
Pierce is a former state high
school champion, and has regis-
tered the swift time of :6.2. John
Johnson, the Maize and Blue's
bst dash man has registered his
best time this season, being timed
at :6.5 against the Buckeyes of
Ohio State.
Bowling Green will also enter

an outstanding Cash man in this
race. Floyd Lennox, the Falcons'
ace sprinter has been credited with
a 6.5 clocking, and the presence
of these three aces could mean a
lowering of the existing records for
this event.
Pole Vault Stars
Michigan Normal will also pro-
vide a threat to Michigan in the
Pole Vault. Bob Applebaum, the
Maize and Blue's top pole vaulter,
has hit 13 feet, 4 nches, while
Marland Blum, of Michigan Nor-
mal, has cleared the bar at 13
feet 6 inches.
Junior Stielstra and Tommy
Hendricks, top Wolverine broad
jumpers, will hvve to go all out if
they hope to capture that event
from the Huron's Jerry Birnbaum.
Stielstra placed second in the
broad jump in the OSU meet,
where the winning leap was 22
feet 8/4 inches. However, he will
have to better Birnbaum's best
mark of 22 feet five inches, if he
hopes to win today.
Michigan's captain John Moule
should have no trouble winning
the mile run: After hitting 4:09.9
against Notre Dame, the Maize and
Blue miler coasted to a winning
time of 4:14.9 against OSU,
