List of Gym
The Illinois gymnastic squad
once again this year appears to
be the team to beat in the fast
approaching Big Ten gymnastics
meet, which will be held in Min-
neapolis, Minnesota, on March 4th
and 5th.
Pressing closely the four-time-
in-a-row Big Ten champions and
last % year's runner-up to Penn
State in the national champion-
ships should be Minnesota, and
Michigan State. Other potential
strong teams include Ohio State,
Iowa and Michigan.
Nine Gym Squads
The Big Ten is actually made
up of only nine gym squads, since
-Purdue does not have a team.
:r Michigan so. far this season has
a 1-2 record Big Ten dual meet
competition. The Wolverines have
been whipped by both Minnesota
and Michigan State, while holding
a victory over Wisconsin and a
win over non-Conference member
Notre Dame. This Saturday's meet
with Northwestern ranks Michigan
as a favorite.
Illinois mastery in the Big Ten
stems from the establishment of
a strong winning tradition and the
fine performances this year of
captain Tom Gardner, senior Jeff
Austin, and tumbler Dan Lirot.
Other outstanding Conference
stars include MSC captain Carl
Rints and sophomore sensation
Samt Bailey from Iowa, both of
whom will prove stiff competition
for Michigan's talented flying
rings sophomore, Nick Wiese.
Winkler Leads Michigan
Maize and Blue coach Newt
Loken looks for his trampoline
squad headed by Bill Winkler to
place high in the final standings.
Frank Adams, who is now work-
ing as all-around entry for the
first time, also should rank high
with the best in the Big Ten.
The rest of the young squad is
making rapid progress, but as
Loken states, he "is building for
next year."

Sigma Chi rolled to another vic-
tory last night to strengthen its
bid for the fraternity "B" basket-
ball championship.
Victims of the 76-11 rout were
the Phi Kappa Tau five, who
couldn't keep up with the Sigma
Chi fast break. Jim Bowman and

Phi Kappa Psi tired out the Phi

playing wit hno substitutes, and
won easily, 38-20. George Nichols
tossed in 15 points for the win-
ners and Larry Catlin sunk 12
points in a losing effort.

Pi Lambda Phi jumped off to ,a
quick lead vnd was in control all
the way as it defeated Theta Chi,

the 25 points tallied by the Pi
Sigma Phi Epsilon and Delta
Epsilon stood 14-13 at half time,
but the Sig Eps squad poured on
the steam in the second half and
emerged victorious, 32-21. Tom
Gilmore was high for Sig Eps with
12 points, but Dick Buck's 12
points couldn't turn the tide for
Delta Upsilon.

closest contest of the evening.
Lambda Chi Alpha held the slight
advantage most of the game and
it managed to hold its small lead
until the final buzzer.
Other scores of the evening
were: Phi Delta Theta 28, Phi Sig-
ma Delta 13; Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon 37, Alpha Delta Phi 18; Alpha
Tau Omega 45, Tau Delta Phi 14;
Sigma Alpha Mu defeated Alpha
Sigma Phi (forfeit); Chi Psi de-
feated Acacia (forfeit).

One of the bright spots on the
Michigan hockey horizon this year
has been the dazzling playing of
sophomore Bob Pitts, Wolverine
His stick-work in the opening
games with McGill showed signs
of encouragement to a not-very-
hopeful Wolverine squad. He real-
ly came into his own when in the
last period of the first game in the
Michigan - Montreal series he
smashed a game-saving goal into
the nets.
Hails From British Columbia
Hailing from Nelson, British Co-
lumbia, Pitts be-an his career on
the ice at an early -age, when he
played on city-organized teams of
different age groups. He gained
further experience during his four

following his graduation from high
school when he devoted his time
exclusively to basketball.
Great Promise as a Freshman
Once he arrived at Michigan,
however, Pitts was back on the
skates, and even as a freshman
showed great promise. This year
is his first playing for Michigan,
and he has participated in at least
two-thirds of each game on the
Pitts says he finds that the big-
gest difference between hockey at
Michigan and hockey as he for-
merly played it is that before he
was allowed to body-check any-
where on the ice, with no rules
restricting it, while here body-
checking is limited under the
NCAA rules.}

He feels his biggest games here
to date have been the McGill se-
ries, but the ones coming up will
be the all-important ones and the
biggest ones he will play.
Great Stamina
"Pitts is one of our outstanding
defensemen," says Coach Vic Hey-
liger. "He is clever with the stick
and plays his position well. He
shows a great deal of stamina de-
spite the fact that he must play
during most of the game."
Pitts has a pretty good shot for
a defenseman, and although he is
still a little careless with the stick,
this is his first year on the team
and he is fast overcoming it.
Keep your eye on this rising
sophomore, one of the many out-
st'inding Wolverine prospects.

Muddled Big Ten Ca
Finds Gophers in Fir



As the Big Ten teams roll into
the second half of the Conference
season, the standings are more
muddled then they have been in
a long time.
Minnesota, sporting a six win,
two loss record, tops the confer-
ence, with Illinois and Iowa tied
for second with five wins and two
losses each. Minnesota, although
the team to beat, ranks fifth in

scoring and shooting averages,
but ranks first in defense.
But the statistics do not tell the
whole story. So many of the un-
derdog teams have upset so many
of the leaders in the league that
it is almost impossible to predict
on any given evening which teams
will win. Not long ago, lowly Pur-
due, conference tail-ender, forced
the league's leader, Minnesota to
play six overtimes before drop-
ping a close one. Michigan scar-
ed two of the best teams insthe
conference before losing to them,
and Purdue has lost several by a
handful; of points.
'Breaks' Decide
"Except for the breaks, the bot-
tom teams in the conference could
be with the top teams," stated
Michigan's basketball coach, Bill
Peraigo. He attributed the unus-
ual season to excellent teams in
the Big Ten.
"The wins against non-confer-
ence schools prove that all the Big
Ten squads have great potential.
It's impossible to predict who will
come out on top in any game be-
tween Big Ten schools. They're
all great."
All the conference schools have
games this Saturday, and all of
them should prove to- be exciting
contests. Topping the list are the
duels between Illinois and Minne-
sota at Minneapolis and between
Indiana and Iowa at Iowa City.
A Minnesota win would keep them
in the lead spot in the conference,
but if the Illini win, first place
goes to them, unless Iowa wins, in
which case the Hawkeyes would
tie for the lead with the Illini. But
this is less than half of the mud-
Spartans Face Wildcats
Fourth place MSC takes on
fifth place Northwestern at Ev-
anston, and a win by either team
could raise it in the standings.
Michigan State is considered to
be the up-and-coming team in the
Big Ten, but will be at a disad-
vantage. The game will take place
on NU's home floor, and the Wild-
cats haven't - lost a conference
game at home.
The other two games in the con-
ference Saturday find Ohio State
at Wisconsin and Michigan at
Purdue. These games, though not
as likely to change the standings
as the other contests, will be just
as colorful as the second division
teams try to salvage their records.
Just as interesting as the team
races is the fight for individual
scoring honors. Three players
have topped the 27 point per
game mark. Robin Freeman of
Ohio State leads the pack with
27.8 points per game with Indi-
ana's Don Schlundt hot on his
heels with 27.7 points per game,
