scored 16 points, below his Big Ten

Michigan the rebound power it
needed.
Especially on the offensive
boards, Bill Perigo's squad was in-
effective. They rarely had a chance
to follow up on a shot.
Another big factor was Michi-
gan's free throw record-15 for 26
from the 15t-foot mark. Kramer hit
on four of his 10 attempts to help
account for the unenviable rec-
ord. Illinois, while not hot from
the foul line, had a fairly respec-

By DON LINDMAN
"I wasn't after the record par-
ticularly; I was after Konno," said
the husky Wolverine swimmer in
his characteristic Scotch brogue.
Jack Wardrop, the man who
shocked the swimming world Sat-
urday by cutting nearly a full sec-
ond off Ford Konno's world rec-
ord for the 220-yard freestyle, was
still smiling yesterday as he spoke
about his record-breaking achieve-
ment against a strong Ohio State
squad.
World Record
Wardrop had smiled even more
Saturday when his time of 2:03.9
was announced as a new world
mark.
"I've had my eyes on that rec-
ord for 15 years," said the Wolver-
ine who handed record-holder
Konno a nine-foot beating while
setting the new standard.
Getting back to the race, War-
drop-mused, "I couldn't afford to
think much about that record;
we had a meet to win. With Bert
sick we had to worry about points,
not records. The way we had it
figured, the meet sort of revolved
around Bert, and we didn't know
how much good he would be to us
since he had just gotten out of
the hospital."
The "Bert" referred to was Bert
Wardrop, Jack's twin brother and
quite a swimmer in his own right'
Bert had spent the past three days
in the hospital, and no one knew

if he would be strong enough to
hold his own against the Buckeye
stars.
"It sure surprised me to find,
out just how far ahead of Konno
I actually was," continued Jack.
"I didn't think much about where
he was for the first couple of
lengths."
The 22-year old junior re-
marked that on Saturday he
hadn't felt capable of turning in a
time anywhere near his sub-2:04
clocking. "I had been bothered by
a cold most of the week," declared
Jack, "and didn't expect to do
real well. I guess I figured on
something close to the record, but
nothing like a 2:03.9."
No Need to Worry
As things turned out, there?
wasn't much need to worry about
Bert. Coach Gus Stager entered
him in the freestyle leg of the
medley relay "to see if he was
strong enough to go 100 yards in
the crucial freestyle relay," and
the Scotch All-American respond-
ed with a sparkling :51.3 effort
which gave Michigan a surprise
win in the medley.
Stager views that unexpected
first-event win as the turning
point in the meet. The psycholog-
ical effect on the Maize-and-Blue
squad was marked and, coupled
with Wardrop's record and the
Wolverine sweep of the 50-yard
freestyle in the next two events,
gave the team the necessary boost
to carry it to a win.

By PHIL DOUGLIS
It's hard to believe, but it's true!
Almost as if it was stolen
from fiction, Michigan's cinderella
hockey team once again is Colo-
rado bound-this time for the
eighth straight year.
After a miserable start, the
Wolverines slowly picked up mo-
mentum, and after another mid-
season slump, roared to eight vic-
tories in ten starts, six of them in
a row.
It was enough to sew up second
place in the Western Hockey.
League, and a berth in the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion's tournament, set for Colo-
rado Springs' Broadmoor Ice Pal-
ace on March 10, 11 and 12.
A 'Rebuilding' Year?
This was supposed to be a "re-
building year" for Vic Heyliger's
squad, one year away from NCAA
tourney caliber. Early results bore
this out. Shortly after midseason,
however, the desperately short-
handed Wolverines picked up fleet
Tom Rendall after a transfer eli-
gibility squabble, and also added
rugged defenseman Mike Buchan-
an.
The tide turned. The Michigan
State Spartans were swept off
their feet twice, the favored Goph-
ers of Minnesota were blasted
clean off their own ice by the Hey-
ligermen, and just this last week-
end the most incredible chapter of
all was added.
North Dakota's fiery Sioux, al
team that had title aspirations of
its own, moved into Michigan Col-
iseum for a four-point series. Pes-
simists gloomily predicted the end
of Michigan "luck." They were
dead wrong.
Nodaks Smashed
Not only did Michigan beat
North Dakota, but never in recent
memory did such a supposedly
"good" team take such horrendous
beatings as did Fido Purpur's No-
daks.
Michigan, already smelling the
sweet Rocky Mountain air, open-
ed up with the most devastating

scoring barrage seen here this
year to sweep the series, 7-0. and
7-2.
"All-American" Dakota- goalie
Jerry Schultz was like a mirage,
as 14 Wolverine shots rang
through the Nodak nets. Itrwas
as if the Wolverines were playing
a high school team.
Tech Loses
Meanwhile, up at snow-swept
Houghton, Michigan, Colorado
College sewed up the league crown
by beating dangerous Michigan
Tech, two times-and thereby giv-
ing Michigan the second place
slot on a silver platter. Cheddy
Thompson, coach of the champion
Tigers really "isn't such a bad
guy after all" in the words of
several Michigan hockey players.
For the first time this season,
Michigan showed that it had
morekthan one line. Againstthe
Nodaks such men as Jerry Kar-
pinka and Jay Goold showed that
they too can score if necessary.
But the real glory went to the
famed "production" line of Cap-
tain Bill MacFarland, Tommy
Rendall and Dick Dunnigan.
MacFarland garnered a hat
trick, Rendall tallied six goals in
the two games, and the fiery Dun-
nigan, one of the smallest men in
college hockey, scored a brace of
his own, and assisted on six others.
Defense Sharp
Coach Heyliger was also quick
to please his defense. Bob Schil-
ler, Bob Pitts, Mike Buchanan,
Entries for the intramural
all-campus table tennis com-
petition must be in by Thurs-
day,.March 3.
-Bob Welke
and Bernie Hanna were virtually
air tight for the second straight
weekend. But the real star was
goalie Lorne Howes, who kicked
out nearly everything that came
his way, even when the odds were
stacked hopelessly against him.
This weekend, the Michigan
icers look toward a tune-up series
with Michigan Tech, now out of
tourney contention. A feature will
be the appearance in the nets of
Bill Lucier, the capable goalie who
has ridden the bench in deference
to Iowes all season long. Lucier,
the last remnant of a National
Championship team, is the only
senior on the team, and will make
the season's only league appear-
ance on Saturday night.
Meanwhile, teams in the east
are still fighting it out to gain
an NCAA playoff berth. At last
word, St. Lawrence, Clarkson and
Harvard are still in contention.

Michigan track coach Don Can-

the Big Ten meets for the indoor

Three Wolverine cindermen who
have a good chance for victories
in the coming contest are Pete

who is a top performer, however,
so none of the events will be easy.

Gray will match strides with Il-

is the best time in the Big
this year.

Ten

Captain John Moule has two
men with better times running
against him in the mile. Iowa's
Rich Ferguson was clocked at
4:04.5 at the British Empire
games last year, and Jim Lambert
of Indiana is just three tenths of
a second under Moule's best effort
of 4:09.9. Canham feels though,
that Moule hasit in him to take
the mile in question.
M' Has Weaknesses
Canham is worried about sever-
al other events which haven't the
optimistic outlook that the above
have. "On the basis of dual meet
performance this year," he said,
"we have no right to expect a con-
ference place in the high hurdles,
broad jump, pole vault, or the
sprints, including the 300."
As an example, he pointed out
some events in last Saturday's
meet which were disappointing. He
lamented to the fact that "our
sprinting, high jump, pole vault,
and shot put were alright, but they
just weren't up to Big Ten stand-
ards."
Wallingford's Best
"Tom Hendricks has been run-
ning the hurdles well, but there
are four men in the conference
with better times. Also, Ron Wal-
lingford with his time of 9:18.3,
is bettered by Carl Johnson of Il-
linois, and in the two mile relay,
Indiana has a faster team by the
record," explained Canham re-
garding hopes in these depart-
ments.
In the 440, Michigan's Grant
Scruggs is a hopeful, but again
there are three men who have run
it faster. Last years champ, Ralph
Fessenden of Illinois, has sprinted
the distance in :49.0 seconds flat
and looks like the man to beat.
Summed up, it appears definite-
Iy that the Western Conference
Indoor meet is going to be a tight
four team race, and Michigan's
chances are hard to determine.

SETS FIELD HOUSE MARK:
Moule Displays Improvement in Mile

1 J-_l

By STEVE HEILPERN
John Moule may be a lot closer
to track stardom than he thinks he
is.
Although the 22-year-old senior
isn't quite sure whether he can
again match his brilliant 4:09.9
mile in the recent Notre Dame
meet, Michigan coach Don Can-
ham feels that he has a good
chance of shaving a couple of
secondsoff his time by the end of
the season.
Moule, whose best time for the
run previous to this year was
4:12.9 (and on an outdoor track,
where faster times are usually re-
corded), finds himself possessor of
the fastest indoor collegiate mile
in the nation for this season.
Greater Speed
Canham believes that greater
leg speed has been the big factor
in Moule's rapid improvement.
"John is now as good as any col-
lege miler in this department,"
claims Canham, "giving him that
extra kick whenever he needs it."
r Moule stands an excellent

chance of breaking John Ross'
Michigan indoor record of 4:09.4,
set in 1952, and Don McEwen's
outdoor mork of 4:09.0, set in the
previous year. Right at this mo-
ment, however, Moule is directing
his thoughts to the coming Big
Ten meet.
Jim Lambert of Indiana and
Rich Ferguson of Iowa will furnish
his main oppositio:t in the Confer-
ence meet this Friday and Satur-
day. Both have run under 4:10,
and Moule will have to be at his
best to come out on top.
While it is taken for granted
that a miler must be in top con-
dition if he expects to win, Moule
stresses the importance of being
in the right frame of mind. He il-
lustrates this with a story about
Australia's John Landy, one of
the world's greatest runners:
Met Landy
"I was fortunate- enough to meet
Landy last summer at Vancouver,
where we both competed in the
British Empire Games, and I
could tell that he wasn't going to

beat (Roger) Bannister. He didn't
have the complete confidence that
Bannister had before the race.
That was the difference between
the two, as I saw it."
Moule, captain of the current
Michigan track aggregation, was
a member of the cross country
squad last fall, and placed fourth
in the Conference meet, which the
Wolverines won.
He developed as a runner in
Hamilton, Ontario, where he was
born. The Hamilton Olympic Club
helped prepare him for later com-
petition by giving hi inexperience
in everything from sprints to six-
mile cross-country jaunts.
He and the mile have adopted
each other, and they seem perfect-
ly suited.

LAKELAND, FLA. RP)-Baseball
Commnissioner Ford Frick warned
yesterday that he will fine the
Detroit Tigers if he finds evidence
the squad has jumped the gun on
the March 1 start for spring train-
ing.
In an unprecedented move to-
day, Frick fined theI Milwaukee
Braves $500 and levied individual
fines against 14 players for ad-
vance workouts.
Similar Violations
Frick wired the Tigers he had
reports of similar v.iolations of the
training rule.
"I am alert to the situation,"
Frick wired. "In addition to Mil-
waukee, other clubs are being in-
vestigated. If we find violations
we will act in accordance with
baseball law."
Tiger Manager Bucky Harris
denied his squad had violated the
rule,
"I wired Frick his reports were
news to me," Harris said. "We
have followed all the rules. If
some of the kids have been run-
ning on their own, I don't see
what anyone can do about it."
Some early arrivals at the Tiger
training camp have been exercis-
ing at a high school field.
