the second half. At this point the
Illini began to move. Their shoot-
ing improved and their defense
tightened up. Michigan was not
able to drive and was forced to
shoot from the outside.'
At 7:12 of the half, two fouls
by diminutive guard, Bill Ridley,
one of the top scorers in the Big
Ten, tied the score at 61. Illinois
continued to press and three min-
utes later the visitors were ahead
by six points.
But Michigan would not give up.
Three straight field goals, capped
by a Paul Groffsky one-hand push
shot again knotted the score, this
time at 71. The Wolverines con-
tinued to hustle and fight. One
foul by Tom Jorgenson sand-
wiched in between two field goals
by Kramer' gave the Wolverines a
78-77 lead with two minutes to
play.
The two teams exchanged bas-
kets and then Stout's tip-in
decided matters.
With 10 seconds left in the con-
test Michigan regained possession
of the ball. Don Eaddy, who had
an "off" night, tried a jump shot
from 30 feet out. The ball bounced
off the backboard and was grabbed
by Milt Lingle. Lingle moved to

his right . . . then the buzzer
sounded over the noise of the
roaring crowd.
Inability to convert charity
;osses continued to plague the
Michigan basketball team. Nine
foul attempts were missed by the
Vlaize and Blue.
A lack of reserves was also evi-
dent. Only five men saw action in
the first half. Seven Michigan men
played in the second half, but Jim
Shearon and Lingle played but a
few minutes.
In other Big Ten games, Minne-
sota moved into first place as it
whipped Ohio State, 82-56, and
Indiana stopped Wisconsin, 65-58.

The Michigan swimming team
returned to Ann Arbor Sunday
after smashing a national and a
world record during its nine day
tour through the eastern and
southern states.
The tour included meets and ex-
hibitions at the Indianapolis Ath-
letic Club, Army, North Carolina
State, North Carolina University,
and Villanova.
World Record
A world record time of six min-
utes, 22.5 seconds was established
last Thursday at the University
of North Carolina in Chapel Hill
by the Michigan 600 yard back-

stroke relay team of Jim Kruth-
ers, Bert and Jack Wardrop, and
Bumpy Jones.
The same team also shattered
the 800 yard National AAU back-
stroke record Saturday at Villa-
nova. The time for that distance
was eight minutes, 57.7 seconds.
Michigan swimmers also ac-
counted for 15 other pool rec-
ords during the tour. Ten of the
new marks were set by Jones and
the Wardrop twins. The other five
were established by Mike Delaney,
and Jim T h u r 1 o w, Michigan
breaststrokers, Ron Gora, free-
style sprinter, and Fritz Myers,
versatile sophomore individual
medley artist.

petitor encountered by the Michi-

JERRY STERN
... at last

gan team was 16 year old Frank
McKinney, speedy Indianapolis
high school swimmer. McKinney
pushed Jones to a new pool rec-
ord at the Indianapolis Athletic
Club when he swam the 150 yard
individual medley in 1.31.5. Jones'
time was 1.29.6.
Two other records were set by
opposing swimmers. Dick Fadgen
of North Carolina State swam to
a new 200 yard orthodox breast-
stroke record of two minutes, 26.5
seconds as he beat Michigan's Jim
Thurlow and Joe Haselby.
The University of North Caro-
lina's 300 yard medley relay team
bettered the existing National Col-
legiate record by swimming the
distance in two minutes, 45.9 sec-
onds.
Sight-Seeing Enroute
Travelling by auto, the 14 Mich-
igan swimmers and their two
coaches Gus Stager and Bruce
Harlan, took time off from the
swimming schedule to stop in New
York and Washington, D.C.
Staying at the New York Athlet-
ic Club, team members visited New
York's famed Radio City and the
Steve Allen television show.
In nine days the Michigan swim-
mers travelled more than 3000
miles and accumulated a six won,
none loss record. In addition to
the regular competition the team
conducted swimming clinics and
demonstrated old and new strokes
for several hundred Michigan
alumni and high school swimmers.
Each meet was climaxed by a hi-
larious comedy diving show per-
formed by Michigan's diving coach
Bruce Harlan and divers Charley
Bates and Jim Walters.

'WILD RACE':
Icers Split, Still in Running for First

Ialftime: Michigan 48, Illi-
nois 44.
Free throws missed: Illinois
-Brothers 2, Sout, Ridley, Paul
Judson, BonSalle, Phil Judson.
Michigan -- Stern, Groffsky 2,
Kramer 4, Eaddy 2.

Despite a mediocre two won, two
lost between - semester record,
Michigan's tiny but hustling hock-
ey squad :.till barely remains; in the
running for a coveted berth at the
NCAA ice finals, due to the wildest
and closest race the Western
Hockey League has ever seen.
During the mid-year break, Vic
Heyliger's icers split even with two
of the hottest teams in the league,
Minnesota and Michigan Tech.
The Wolverines divided with Min-
nesota here, losing the opener 10-
4, and copping a brilliant 4-3 win
the next night,
Over this last weekend, Michi-
gan and Michigan Tech divided
their first series of the year, with
4-2, but dropping the second tilt,
4-1. All four games were one-
pointers in the league standings.
Gophers, Huskies Rampage
Meanwhile, the onrushing Go-
phers and Huskies tore up all
other opposition, including each
other, and the two Giants of the
Northland roared up near the top
of the WIHL ladder.
The Golden Gophers picked up
seven points, and the Huskies
garnered six and a half during
Michigan's semester break, to
hustle past the Wolverines in the
standings.
Colorado College howver, has
virtually sewed up the league title
by adding four more points during
the past month, but the second
place berth is wide open, with four
teams definitely in the running.
Only three points separate the last
place team from the second place
outfit, and four teams are dead-
locked within one and a half
points of each other.
Wolverines Must Win All
Michigan, tied with MSC for
fifth and sixth, must win nearly all
its remaining games to gain sec-
ond place, andrmust beat MSC,
Minnesota, North Dakota, and
Michigan Tech in that order. The
I

Spartan series is this weekend,
with a Friday night game at East
Lansing and a return engagement
here-Saturday night.
If the Heyligermen can success-
fully brush 3ast the rapidly de-
scending Spartans, the stage will
be set for the deciding stretch
run. The following three succes-
sive weekends find Michigan tak-
ing on the three other contenders
for second nlace, with every game
a showdown battle.
MacFarland Nets Hat-Tricks
In both Michigan victories, Bill
MacFarland tallied three goals,
the hat-trick, sparking his team-
mates to upset victories. The
opening loss to Minnesota was a
tragic affair 'from the Michigan
standpoint. With a huge crowd
jamming the Coliseum, Michigan
blew a 2-0 lead in the opening pe-
riod, with the Gophers tying it up
as defenseman Bob Schiller was
injured, leaving a gap in the Wol-
verine back wall.
Minnesota's Johnny Mayasich
leaped into the league scoring lead
which he still holds at this mo-
ment, by smashing Li four goals
and assisting on four others, as
the roof fell in on Michigan, to
the tune of 10-4.
The next night was a different
story, as Michigan stormed back
from a 3-1 deficit to whip the fa-
vored Gophers, 5-3. Scoring three
goals within four minutes late in
the second period, Michigan
avenged the previous night's loss.
MacFarland's hat-trick paced the
Wolverines, with one of the three
goals scored on a rarely seen pen-
alty shot.
Houghton Holiday
Up to Houghton the Wolverine
caravan went, and again it was the
red-hot stick of Bill MacFarland
that led the way, this time to a
4-2 win over theyrampaging Hus-
kies. Brilliant defensive work es-
pecially by Bobby Schiller, helped
Lorne Howes to. hold the lead
against the high scoring Techmen.
Disaster struck again last Sat-
urday afternoon, as the two
squads squared off in the feature
attraction of Tech's famed Win-
ter Carnival. In a game marked by
a bloody brawl, and fearsome high
sticking, Tech beat Michigan for
the first time in 10 games, 4-1.
Road Gets Tougher
The road from here on gets
to igher. Some relief is in store
for Michigan's terribly shorthand-
ed team with addition of Mike Bu-
chanan to the squad, but he has
yet to prove himself in Western
League play.
