Jorgensen's 18 Points Sets

echelon of all-time Michigan scor-
ers. Despite the fact that his aver-
age slumped, Jorgensen has still
pumped in 223 markers this year
to vault ahead in the scoring der-
by.
Kramer's 14 points moved him
within seven of third place in total
scoring and only 62 points behind
Jorgensen. Kramer should eisily
establish another new record next
year if he scores atl anywhere near
has present rate.
Grof'fsky Third"
Paul Groffsky of the 1955 squad
is currently in third place follow-
ed by Kramer and Mack Supruno-
wicz of the 1948 Big Ten titlists.
Jorgensen also continued his hot
shooting from the line by hitting
two free throws o nhis only efforts
to run his total to 73 conversions
in 84 attempts for a percentage of
.869.
The setback dropped the Wolv-
erines to a season mark of nine
victories and 11 losses. Wins over
Minnesota and Michigan State are
needed to enable the cagers to
finish at the .500 mark. The loss
also hurt the Wolverines chances
to move up in ,Big Ten standings.
Only by dropping Minnesota and
MSU, can the hoopsters still move
into seventh place all alone.
The worst finish possible is a tie
for ninth with Wisconsin who has
already lost ten games, the most
the Wolverines can drop.
The final action of the -season
will take place in Yost Field House
with the Gophers on Saturday
evening and the Spartans moving
in on the following Monday to
round out the season.
Northwestern sewed up its cel-
lar position by dropping its 12th
straight Conference game arnd fall
two-and-one-half games back of,
ninth-place Wisconsin with only!
two contests left on the docket.

Gymnasts Close Undefeated Season

By JIM BAAD
The Michigan gymnasite team's
greatest dual meet season came
to a close last Saturday afternoon
before the largest crowd ever to
watch the sport at Michigan.
Undefeated
The Wisconsin win was the end
of a perfect chain-seven straight
meets without a defeat. In 1950
this record was duplicated, but the
power of the Conference, Illinois,
was not on the schedule.
This year Illinois fell before

Michigan for the first time, in the
only close match of the year. Only
two points separated this year's
defending champs and the victor-
ious challengers.
The other meets, Michigan State,
Indiana, Minnesota,'Ohio State,
Northwestern, and Wisconsin saw
the Wolverines completely in com-
mand. Minnesota offered the most
resistance and they were defeated
by 16 points.
The rise to dominance of coach
Newt Loken's squad could be called
a real surprise if last year's rec-

Big Ten Cage Round Up

ord is examined. The Wolverines
won only five and lost three and
wound up fifth in the Conference.
The two factors which have
placed the Wolverines in a com-
manding position are a spohomore
named Ed Gagnier and the fact
that every man on the squad, ex-
cluding Gagnier, has at least one
year of experience in the Big Ten.
Gagnier, with 204 of his teams
478 point total, single-handly ac-
counted for a little over 43 % of
the seasons output. This is phe-
nomenal. Loken doesn't believe
that anyone else has even come
close to this at Michigan.
Team Experienced
The overall experience of the
team was what ran up the high
totals however, Nick Wiese almost
always came through with one or
two firsts to suppliment Gagnier's
three or four, and the other gym-
nasts were consistantly adding
many seconds and thirds.
"This has easily been the most
successful season I have ever had
so far," said Loken, "but it isn't
over yet. The big meet is waiting
for us Saturday."
The "'big meet" is of course the
'meat' of the whole gymnastics
season. It is the Big Ten Meet at
Champaign, Illinois this coming
Saturday, and -it alone decides
where each team places in the
Conference.

WITH PHIL DOUGLIS
Daily Sports Editor
An entire winter sports season will be virtually wrapped up in
one hectic and thrilling weekend, as five Big Ten titles go up for
grabs this Friday and Saturday.
It's "Big Ten" weekend-a sports carnival almost without paral-
lel. Spread over five cities, and taking up a span of three days, the
Western Conference decides who is best in swimming, gymnastics,
track, wrestling, and probably basketball,
To the uninitiated, perhaps a word of explanation is needed. Unlike
football and basketball, the other four winter Big Ten sports have
been played for only experience up to this weekend. No standings are
ever kept for dual meet competition in wrestling, swimming, track or
gymnastics. Instead, the teams all come together under one- roof, at
one time, and on one weekend. This is that weekend.
What are Michigan's chances? Taking as objective a look as
possible, we are forced to conclude that they are far above average.
Looking at it realistically, we can see Michigan as the favorite
in three out of the four meets. Whether or not they can live up to
this role, only time will tell-but the Wolverines appear to be the
best in the "West" in track, wrestling, and gymnastics.
Track is a funny sport. Michigan coach Don Canham continually
tells how badly he will be beaten, yet during the last two seasons,
his victory trail has proved him dead wrong. The story is the same
again. With Big Ten champions Ron Wallingford, Bob Appleman,
Dave Owen, and Mark Booth returning to defend their crowns, and
such tremendous sophs as Eeles Landstrom, Brendan O'Reilly, Jimmy
Pace and Robin Varian I find it hard to see how Michigan can lose.
East Lansing's Jenison Field House should be a happy place for the
Maize and Blue.
The other two meets in which Michigan may be favorites at post
time are not quite as easy to predict. Take wrestling for example.
Cliff Keen's4men started out the dual meet season dismally-being,
routed almost every weekend.
Suddenly, with the return of Big Ten champion Don Haney, the
"arrival" of Lloyd 'Hamady, and the bolstering of the squad 'with
mid-year eligibility additions, Michigan began to move, and routed
Michigan State, Purdue, Iowa, Northwestern, and Ohio State in a
row. They are red hot, and appear to be at their peak.
I wouldn't bet against them this weekend at Evanston-but
watch out for Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Purdue. The competition
will be plenty tough.
* * * *
Gymnasts Beware .. .
IN GYMNASTICS, Michigan swept through every meet -unbeaten.
Newt Loken's men go to Champaign for the second time, scene of
their first win over Illinois in dual-meet history earlier in the season.
Michigan's chances to take its first Big Ten title in gym history
are geod-BUT watch out for Illinois. Though Michigan beat them in
dual meet competition, the Illini have since gained the services of two
new crack gymnasts-and may have just a little too much depth for
the rest of the Conference,
However, in Ed Gagnier and Nick Wiese, Michigan has a 1-2
punch that just might grab the bunting for the Loken men,.
The only sport in which Michigan is obviously outclassed is
swimming. Plagued by dissension and a host of good competition,
Michigan can look to second place as the ultimate, and more likely
third, fourth, or possibly fifth. In Purdue's big pool, it appears that
Ohio State should easily sweep the field as usual-but the race for
second should be a real dog-fight between Michigan, Iowa, Michigan
State, and Indiana.
Meanwhile out at Iowa City, a fifth title wiin all likelihood, be
decided on Saturday afternoon. Iowa's rampant Hawkeyes collide
head-on with Illinois in basketball-with the Big Ten title the virtual
reward. Millions of TV fans will view the action-and it should be
quite a game. We will go out on the limb and pick the Illini to
dethrone the Hawkeyes in this one.
lers Go North ...
S4O MUCH for the Big Ten. Swing your eyes northward now to the
land of the Huskie-Houghton, Michigan to be exact. Here, in the
confines of Dee Stadium, Michigan's deending NCAA hockey kings
challenge the leaders of the WIHL, Michigan Tech~ in the opening
series of a four game home and home ,set.
The series will undoubtedly decide the WIHL champion, the
winner of the McNaughton Trophy, the winner of the State of
Michigan college title, and of course the West's representative to the
NCAA tourney at ColOrado Springs,
With all of this at stake-plus unprecidented interest in college
hockey in Houghton and Ann Arbor-there should be quite some
exciting hockey played this week and next between these two teams.
For the first time' in many years, the Michigan Daily Sports
Department will cover every Big Ten meet, as well as the hockey
series at Houghton, in person. Michigan fans are thus assured of a
colorful, exciting depiction of these big meets the next morning at

their breakfast tables.
If Michigan's Wolverines do come through with titles in Wrestling,
Track, Gymnastics, and Hockey, it will be an unprecidented season of
athletic triumph. Despite the ups and downs of Michigan sports this
year, we feel that being the best of nine other teams in three sports,
the best of seven in another, makes for a pretty good record. Now all
we have to do is to win them.
