'M' Tankers End Poor
Year At Hands of OSU

Minnesota did part of the work,
but Michigan must do the rest for
Despite its idleness from West-
ern Intercollegiate Hockey League
competition last weekend, the Wol-
verines saw their chances for their
ninth straight NCAA playoff berth
improve greatly.
Gophers Help
For the second straight weekend,
the Gophers were vital to Michi-
gan's playoff drive. Ten days ago
they dropped a pair of contests to
the Wolverines. Last Friday and
Saturday nights they stunned Col-

Now that the Michigan track
squad has dispensed easily of its
dual and quadrangular-meet rivals,
it is fast readying itself for more
important affairs.
Specifically, these affairs in-
clude the Big Ten showdown at
East Lansing this Friday and Sat-
urday. An event which finds prac-
tically everyone "in the know" con-
ceding the Western Conference
crown to Don Canham's talented
athletes-that is, everyone but
Held Back
The 58-odd points which the
Wolverines piled here last, Satur-
day against Ohio State, Western
Michigan and Marquette could
have been added to quite easily
with the inclusion of some of the
talent which Canham chose not
to enter in the tuneup meet. Among

sights on a higher, less attainable
They have four games to play-
all with league-leading Michigan
Tech-and their object will be to
sweep both series to finish first in
the WIHL.
Three victories would give the
Wolverines a tie for first. Any-
thing less than two wins, would
leave Michigan's hopes dependent
upon the outcome of this week's
Colorado-Denver series.
Buildup Begins
Displaying a powerful offense
last weekend against Montreal,
the Wolverines will be building up
all this week for Friday night's
first of two clashes with Tech at
Houghton. Following the, away
tilts, the title contenders come to
Ann Arbor March 9 and 10 for the
conclusion to the torrid race.
Second line power, the key to
last weekend's 15 point scoring
spree against Montreal, will be
counted on heavily in the upcom-
ing Huskie series.
Neil McDonald had two goals
and four assists; Dick Dunnigan
contributed a single goal and four
assists. Scoring five goals Friday,
Ed Switzer followed with four
assists Saturday.

..second line power

The Michigan swimmers just
weren't in the same league with
Ohio State.
Last weekend for the first time
since 1952, the Wolverine natators
were completely outclassed by the
Buckeyes. The final score of 57-36
does not fully indicate the ease
with which Ohio State won.
The Buckeyes with its win over
Michigan completed an undefeated
season, and definitely are the
strongest team in the Big Ten.
End Poor Season
Michigan concluded their dual
meet season, one of their. worst
in its history, with a rather dismal
record of only one Big Ten victory
against four conference defeats.
Michigan took only two firsts in
the meet, and were close in only
one other event. In several events,
the Buckeyes assured Michigan of
at least four points, by entering
only one man.
It is even conceivable that Ohio
State could have taken the two
events that Michigan did win. Al
Wiggens and Ed Kawachika, two
of the finest swimmers on the
Buckeye squad, each were eligible
to compete in another event.
Don' Harper of OSU ended the

Wolverine's hope for diving honors
as he completely dominated that
event. Fletcher Gilders, the Buck-
eye's other diver, beat Michigan's
John Narcy for second in a very
close contest.
In the middle distance swim-
ming events, Gerry McNamee of
Ohio won both the 220 and 440
free style events handily. Michi-
gan's captain, John O'Reilly had
to settle for a poor third in both
The Wolverine's weakness was
also apparent in the 400 yard free
style relay. The Buckeye quartet
set a new dual meet record in the
relay, with the Wolverine four fin-
ishing a poor second, far behind
the winners.
One bright spot in the Michigan
camp was the performance of
Bobby Knox, who just recently re-
turned to the team. Knox took
second place honors in both the
50 and 100-yard freestyle.
In both these events, he lost by
small margins, especially in the
50-yard race, in which Jim Kimmel
beat him by less than a foot.

the notables withheld were certain
point-getters Pete Gray and Rob
Varian, who competed against
each other in the exhibition 1000,
and Capt. Ron Wallingford, who

did win the mile but wasn't en-
tered in the two-mile, which he
undoubtedly could have come back
to win also.
O'Reilly Sett Recorai
The major developments of the
afternoon, of course, were Bren-
dan O'Reilly's heralder high jump
of 6'71/", the best in the Big Ten
this season, and Jimmy Pace's win
in the 60 in :06.3. Before the pre-
sent campaign started, Coach Can-
ham's entire hopes for the sprints
seemed to rest on the shoulders of
letter-winning John Johnson, and
when Johnson was rendered in-
ejigible, things looked fairly bleak
in the sprint department.
The apparent arrival of Pace,
however, seems to guarantee Mich-
igan some valuable points in the
short dash event next Saturday at
Michigan State.

Turbo Compound Engines - With
the solid acceptance of 37 of the
world' leading airlines as a foun-
dation, Curtiss-Wright is working
on still more power, still greater
efficiency for this historic develop-
ment in powerplants.
Elecfric and Turbolectric Pro-
pellers - Propellers .. . the most
efficient means of converting en-
gine power to useful thrust . . .
are an important aspect of Curtiss-
Wright's development program.
Still greater refinements in effi-
ciency and control lie just ahead.


365 Jet Engine - Powering eight
of the nation's leading military
aircraft to new records of speed
and endurance, the J65 provides
ideal opportunities for design art

military and commercial aircraft
. ..a continuing program of re-
search; refinement and develop-

skills in many fields.

If your objective is to put your best into engineering, and get the
most from engineering, you belong with an organization like
Curtiss-Wright where engineering is the focal point of all ac-
Curtiss-Wright offers stability, born of its world leadership in
aviation, and of its diversification today in the other major fields
of engineering. Curtiss-Wright's program for the future is one of
action ... action in which you, as an engineer, can make the most
of your abilities.
The scope of Curtiss-Wright's research and development pro-
gram permits you to choose your spot m most cases-aircraft
powerplants, fuel development and research, instrumentation,
propeller design, or one of a score of electronics projects. If you
are a mechanical, electrical, aeronautical engineer-or if you have
specialized interests-it will pay you 'to discuss your objectives
with the Curtiss-Wright interviewer when he comes to your
Curtiss-Wright is first and foremost an engineering organza-
tion. Its leadership in aviation is solidly founded in engineering
superiority. In commercial aviation as in military applications,
Curtiss-Wright powerplants, propellers, and flight simulation
equipment are the most advanced developments of their kind.
And research goes on. At Curtiss-Wright engineers explore still
more power and greater efficiency for aircraft engines of every
kind ... further developments in subsonic, transonic and super-
sonic propellers . . . greater refinements yet in electronic flight
And through its ever-expanding divisional activity, Curtiss-
Wright is pacing today's progress in fields far removed from avia-
tin . .. nucleonics, ultrasonics, plastics, metallurgy. Some 2200
engineers are at work in Curtiss-Wright's 15 divisions ... and
in Quehanna, Pennsylvania-a new 85-square-mile Research and
Development Center offering ultra-modern resources and facili-
ties for advanced experimentation, testing and development in
every branch of engineering.
This work is building Curtiss-Wright's leadership tomorrow.
It is work for engineers who want a real future, offering oppor-
tunity every bit as big as their desire to excel.
