The mile relay event, also went

McNab, Sloan, Dave Hessler, and

in 3:21.4. Hobart Jones placed sec-

Michigan's cindermen; raced to
an 80-/3-33% victory over Kansas
last Saturday in Yost Fieldhouse.
The Wolverines won nine of the
12 events outright and shared in
another first place. The hard-run-
ning trackmen took eight second
places, indicating depth in many
of the races.
Several Wolverine performers

snapping Kansas' 34-straight dual

the mile while Pete Gray followed
close behind in second place.
Moule's time was 4:16.2. Hurdler
Jim Love came in ahead of the

Kansas Star Absent
Absent from the Kansas team
was Al Frame, NCAA cross coun-

Michigan Splits Gym Meet
With Minnesota, Wisconsin

Michigan's improved gymnastics
squad downed Wisconsin but suc-
cumbed to a powerful Minnesota
team Saturday in a triangular
meet at Madison.
The Wolverines -toppled Wis-
consin by a 58-38 score, only to
find themselves on the other end
as the Gophers beat them with
an identical total. It was a ques-
tion of depth all the way, but
Doug Day of the Gophers admin-
istered a coup-de-grace, taking
two firsts and a third for Minne-
Frank Adams was the stand-
out for Michigan on the 'M'-Wis-
consin leg of the triangle. The re-
liable veteran won both the high-
bar and tumbling events, and took
second on the trampoline. Sopho-
mores Wayne Warren and Nickj
Wiese shared the only other 'M'
first place points. Warren tied with
Jim Murphy of the Badgers on the
parallel bars, and Wiese shared
first with Bob Grollo of Wiscon-
son in the flying rings event.
Badgers Cop Tramp, Side-Horse
Wisconsin won both the tram-
poline and the side horse events
in the persons of Paul Verwey and
Murphy, respectively. Chico San
Antonio and Bob Armstrong took
second and third for Michigan on

the side horse, while Adams and
,Jack Burchfield rounded out the
placing on the tramp.
The 'M'-Minnesota conflict was
a different story, with the Goph-
ers taking or sharing first place
in all but two events. Minnesota
showed its depth by taking the
first three places in the side horse
Wiese and Adams took the only
firsts for the 'M' squad. The rap-
idly improving sophomore topped
the field in his specialty, the fly-
ing rings, followed by Gophers
George Olson and Bob Johnson.
Adams took first in the tumbling
ahead of Johnson and Don Frant-
zich of Minnesota.
On January 15, Michigan went
down to defeat before a Michigan
State squad which Coach Newt
Loken rates as one of the toughest
in the Big Ten. Loken is looking
forward with interest to the Min-
nesota-MSC dual meet to be held
later this month. He feels that
the ' winner of this encounter
should be in good shape to take
the conference meet March 4-5 at
"Michigan should also look very
good in the Big Ten Meet," Loken
said. "We're still a young team, but
the boys areimproving rapidly."

Four Marks Fall to Big Ten Tankers

Four national records have been
erased as the Western Conference
enters its last month of dual meet
competition in what is turning out
to be the strongest season in con-
ference swimming history.
Al Wiggins, Ohio State's sopho-
more sensation, has accounted for
three of the marks in an unprece-
dented one-man attack on the
tank record books. Providing the
versatility which Coach Mike
Peppe has long sought, the latest
member of the Buckeye galaxy of
swimming stars smashed the
world record for the 100-yard but-
terfly breaststroke by nearly three
seconds, turning in a time of
Individual Medley Marks
Wiggins' other record-breaking
achievements were in the individ-
ual medley. An excellent back-
stroker, he set a national record of
1:07.7 for the 120-yard individual
medley against Wisconsin, and
added the 150-yard mark a week
later with a time of 1:26.9. His
time for the 150-yard event broke
the standard set earlier this year
by Michigan Captain Bump Jones,
who covered the distance in
The fourth national 'mark was

set by Michigan State's John Du-
deck, who swam the orthodox
breaststroke in 2:27.6. Dudeck's
mark has since been broken by
North Carolina State's Dick Fad-
The Big Ten appears to be es-
pecially strong in backstroke and
middle-distance freestyle events
and is surprisingly weak in the
freestyle sprints. Yoshi Oyakawa,

tion's backstrokers for three
years, is still the man to beat in
the Big Ten, but this year some
definite challengers for his crown
are appearing.
Wardrops Challenge Oyakawa
Michigan's Wardrop twins, Jack
and Bert, are both capable of beat-
ing Oyakawa unless the Buckeye
ace is in top form. The Hawaiian
star's own teammate, Wiggins, is
a newcomer who can swim 200
yards in under 2:08.

Purdue's Fred Bautz and Wis-
consin's John Hoaglund, both of
whom led Oyakawa until the final
length in the 1954 Big Ten meet,
have returned for their final year
of competition. Another brilliant
newcomer is Iowa's Lincoli Hur-
ring, an Australian sophomore who
swam the 200-yard event in 2:08.8
earlier in the season.
Michigan's Jack Wardrop, the
man who finally conquered the
seemingly unbeatable Buckeye
middle - distance freestyler, Ford
Konno, in last year's NCAA meet,
will again be challenging the OSU
ace for conference and national
honors. A new contender has ap-
peared, however, in the person of
Indiana's Bill Woolse:, who has
beaten Konno several times in
AAU meets and has swum 220-
yards in 2:08.5 already this season.
Few Sprinters
In contrast to the sparkling per-
formances already recorded in
backstroke and distance freestyle
events, the galaxy of freestyle
sprint stars seen at last year's con-
ference meet has disappeared. All
six finalists in the 100-yard event
and the top four men in the 50-
yard sprint are not competing this
