"When Grant took a third in
the 600-yard run, I knew we were
home."
Michigan Track Coach Don
Canham was referring to Grant
Scruggs, who picked up three
points in the 600, despite an ail-
ing stomach. Even then, he lost
out to Kevan Gosper of MSC and
Indiana's Mike Cusick, which is
certainly nothing to be ashamed
of. It then, however, that Can-
ham knew that the Big Ten Indoor
title was his.
Actually, Canham sensed that
things-were going his way when
John Moule won the one-mile
run. "The mile is usually the focal
point of a meet," said the 36-year-
old coach. "It comes just at the
time when it can add to or sub-
tract from a team's confidence.
As you can guess, it added to
ours."

Moule, incidentally, ran the final
220 yards in the fantastic time of
:26.5, leaving Iowa's Rich Fergu-
son in the dust. It marked the
sixth straight year that Michigan
has captured the indoor mile.
John Ross took the event in '52,
'53 and '54, following Don Mc-
Ewen, who won in '50 and '51.
Dave Owen's win in the shot
put with a remarkable heave of
53' %" continued anpther Wol-
verine string-five consecutive
years of shot put supremacy.
Charley Fonville reigned king in
'51, and Fritz Nilsson took the
event the next three years.
The Jenison Field House gath-
ering Saturday afternoon also saw
Michigan take its fifth two-mile
run in six years when Ron Wal-
lingford proved to be the class of
his field.
Love Turns in Upset
Neither Wallingford nor Jim
Love, who captured the low hur-

diles, placed in the finals last year.
Love, in fact, was seeded ninth
among Big Ten hurdlers before
the meet began.
Canham also had praise for
Pete Gray and Mark Booth, his'
other winners, but was especially'
pleased with his second-line
strength.
Tom Hendricks,, who finished
fourth in the broad jump and
fifth in the hurdles; sophomore
John Johnson, who placed second
in the 60-yard dash; Howie Liver-
ance, whose leap of 6' 3" was good
for a fourth-place tie in the high
jump; Bob Appleman, winner of
one and one-half points in the
pole vault; Hobe Jones' thirdj
place in the 1,000; and Dick Flod-
in's third-place finish in the 300.
Also noted was Moule's second-
place finish behind Gray in the
880, and John Vallortigara's fourth
in the 60-yard dash despite a bad
leg.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Mar.

Vic Heyliger's amazing hockey
squad ended another highly suc-
cessful stretch drive by twice
trouncing Michigan Tech's Hus-
kies here last weekend, and there-
by appear to be a prime contender
in the NCAA playoffs at Colorado
Springs.
H a v i n g already entrenched
themselves in a playoff berth
ahead of Tech the previous week,
Michigan proved to all doubting
Huskie fans that it was not mere

bad luck which had robbed their
team of the Colorado trip.
The Maize and Blue's winning
scores of 5-1 and 8-4 told a tale
of beautiful teamwork and fine in-
dividual performances. The fast
and fanciful passing plays of the
first line at times reached almost
an artistic beauty and often be-
fuddled the Tech defense.
Captain Bill MacFarland, scor-
ing his sixth hat trick of the sea-
son and a total of seven points in
the series, turned in another out-
standing showing to place him
third in league scoring

By ED SALEM
"In order to win this tourna-
ment, every one of you guys will
have to get every nickel's worth."
With these words of coach Cliff
Keen in the back of its mind,
Michigan's wrestling team went on
to cop its fourth Western Confer-
ence championship, last weekend.
Given only a slight chance in
this meet, the Wolverines com-
pletely foiled the predictions of the
experts, as they nipped heavily
favored Iowa, 50-46. In doing so,
Max Pearson, Andy Kaul, Don Ha-
ney, and Mike Rodriguez each
took individual championships in
their respective divisions.
But these winners do not tell

the whole story of Michigan's vic-
tory. "Lady Luck" had her say
in the matter. In the 130 pound
class, Iowa's Dick Govig, former
NCAA medal winner, and loser of
but one match this season was up-
set in the first round of the tour-
nament by Illinois' John Ontive-
ros. In losing to Ontiveros, holder
of a mediocre 2-6 record this year,
Govig lost a minimum of two
points for the Hawkeyes.
Haney Wins
In the 147 pound division, Don
Haney tied in two of his matches,
but was awarded the decision in
both cases and went on to win the
title and gain seven badly needed

points for the Maize and Blue,
But the luck didn't end here, for
Tom Krause, Michigan's 177
pounder, won by forfeit from Purim
due's Ahmet Senol. Senol, hurt in
a previous match, was considered
almost a sure winner.
Other highlights of the meet
included the 19th straight victory
for Illinois's Larry TenPas in the
167 pound division. In the 177
pound class, Iowa's John Winder
upset first seeded Dick Anthony of
Indiana and thus handed him his
first defeat in 14 matches.

Jones, Wardrop, Walters, Gora Notch Titles,
But Ohio State Takes Conference Swinuning

The New Spring,
Collegiate Cuts!!

TRY ONE!

By DON LINDMAN
Michigan won the most races,
but Ohio State won the team title
in the Big Ten Swimming Cham-
pionships last weekend.
Captain Bumpy Jones, Jack
Wardrop, Jim Walters, and' Ron
Gora garnered a total of five indi-
vidual titles, and Wolverine relay
teams captured two more events,
but the final score showed the
Buckeyes in solid possession of
first place.

Ten swimming career by being
Michigan's only double winner,
capturing both breaststroke titles.'
In fitting fashion, OSU Co-Cap-
tains Ford Konno and Yoshi Oya-
kawa closed out parallel and
equally spectacular careers by
joining Jones as the only two-
event winners in the 1955 meet.
As in last year's title meet, it
was unexpected and unheralded
team depth which proved to be
the deciding factor in the Buckeye
championship. Virtual unknowns
such as Van Hoffman and Charles
Stephanos turned in the peak per-
formances of their careers to cap-
ture vital second place points in
which Ohio State was given little
chance of scoring.
Michigan's depth, which seemed
quite strong on Friday, failed to
produce expected points in Sat-
urday's finale, as several poten-
tial Wolverine point-getters were
unable to qualify.
Satisfying Win
Jim Walters' low board diving
title was probably the most satis-
fying of the seven Michigan vic-
tories. His Friday night win
-____-___F

marked the first time since 1944
that anyone has broken into the
Buckeye monopoly of either of the
two springboard titles. It was only
the second non-OSU win since
Mike Peppe took over the Buck-
eye coaching reins in 1936.
Wardrop's performances gave
the most future promise of any
Michigan efforts over the weekend,
In addition to lowering his own
world record in the 220-yard free-
style, the Wolverine junior came
within a few inches of handing na-
tional champion Oyakawa a defeat
in the 100-yard backstroke.
While edging the supposedly un-
beatable Buckeye sophomore Al
Wiggins, Wardrop missed two
turns and collided with the lane
marker in the final 25 yards, fac-
tors which undoubtedly cost him
the backstroke crown.
Wardrop finished second to
Wiggins in the individual medley,
having practiced the event very
little this year. Wiggins won the
title by about six feet, but would
probably have much more diffi-
culty beating a Wardrop who had
specialized in the event as Wiggins
has.
