and Nick Wiese then took-a tie for
fourth and sixth, respectively, in
the flying rings to keep Michigan
far enough ahead so that the Spar-
tans' Roland Brown, fourth in the
tumbling, couldn't close the gap.
The Illini so completely domi-
nated the championship running
that after only three events the
runner-up slot fell into the spot-
light. After the third event Illinois
had more points than Michigan
was able to garner all evening.
The winning total was 162/2
points. Behind Coach Charlie
Pond's Champaign powerhouse
came Michigan with 70/2 points,
Michigan State with 661/2, Iowa
with 611/2, and Minnesota with 49.

Tech's Huskies had built around
themselves.
Ed Switzer, Don McIntosh, and
Tom Rendall added the other three
goals as the Wolverines dominated
the game from start to finish.
Stage Is Set
Scoring once in the first period,
twice in the second, and three
times in the third, the Wolverines
set the stage for this weekend's
titanic battle at Ann Arbor.
Both teams now have 17 points
in League play.
A sweep for either team gains an
outright WIHL title, while a split
will end the race in a tie. If Tech
wins one game from Michigan,
the two teams will be tied in final
points, but the Huskies will be one
up in the "won column."
Michigan was obviously the bet-
ter team, although the game was
close up until the explosive Wol-
verine attack in the final period.
Tech was forced throughout most
of the contest to fight for the
puck in its defensive ice. It ap-
peared last night as if the Huskies
were not in the same class as the
Wolverines, and the partisan over-
flow crowd in Dees Stadium seem-
ed to know it.
Goalies Busy
Both Goalies-Michigan's Lorne
Howes and Tech's Bob McManus-
had a busy night. Howes was press-
ed to make 39 saves; McManus had
35.

ond night brought a sudden finish
to the Huskies' hopes.
Rendall started things off for
Michigan at 7:30, when he took a
perfect pass from MacFarland,
faked goalie McManus out of posi-
tion, and pushed the puck in be-
hind him.
Tech came back with less than
a minute left in the first period
to tie the score. Jack McManus

at the time.
Michigan jumped ahead at 5:39
when McIntosh tallied on well-
executed pass play. McManus
scored again about a minute later
to tie the score and send the home
town fans into an uproar.
MacFarland Scores Again
MacFarland scored again soon
after and the Wolverines were out
ahead to stay.

After the top five were Indiana,
Wisconsin, Northwestern, and Ohio
State. This was the seventh
straight Big Ten title for Illinois.
Illinois had not real outstanding
star by the results, but their depth
ran up points so fast that it be-
came hard for the other squads to
keep up the blistering pace.
Illinois' Gavin Blair tied for first
in the side horse with Iowa's Sam
Bailee, while Don Tonry, also
wearing the Illini livery, copped
the coveted all-around title. Dan
Lirot also picked up a win'in the
tumbling.
Gagnier Tops For 'MW'
Gagnier was Michigan's top
producer in gathering 37% points
on his first on the parallel bars,
third in the all-around and free
exercise, a tie for fourth in the
flying rings, and a seventh on the
side horse.
Wiese, working on the high bar,
flying rings, tumbling, and all-
around, got fifth, seventh, sixth,
and tenth respectively.
Coach Newt Loken was extreme-
ly proud of his team, remarking,
"I feel very happy that we finished
second. San Antonio gave the
greatest performance of his gym-
nastics career.
"I tremendously admire Ed Gag-
nier for his comeback tonight. Af-
ter his disastrous fall off the high
bar yesterday afternoon, he rallied
and gave a great account of him-
self."
Santee :First
In Columbian
NEW YORK (AP)-Wes Santee
returned to action last night and
with a crowd of 12,000 in Madison
Square Garden madly cheering his
every stride, won the Columbian
mile in 4:13.8.
The race climaxed a wild day of
court action, indecision and jock-
eying by AAU s officials, Santee's
attorney and other runners.
Santee, barred by the AAU for
accepting excessive expenses two
weeks ago, was reinstated last
Thursday when his attorney,
Charles-P. Grimes, obtained an
injunction nullifying the AAU ac-
tion.
The AAU appealed the injunc-
tion .yesterday morning and was
turned down. That left Santee
still an amateur and the AAU con-
ceded he was eligible.
That's how it stood until late
yesterday when the other runners
began to pull out one by one. Fin-
ally he raced against only Ed Kirk
of the Air Force and Ed Shea of
the Army.

By ALAN EISENBERG
Associate Sports Editor
Minnesota proved to be the bet-
ter of two bad basketball teams at
Yost Field House last night.
Michigan played its usual inept
game as the Gophers triumphed,
86-72. The Wolverines passed
poorly, shot inaccurately, and re-
bounded ineffectually.
The Maize and Blue will close
out still another dismal season to-
morrow night when they meet
arch-rival Michigan State. Game
time will be at the usual 8 p.m.
Early Lead
In the opening moments it
looked as if Michigan would have
an easy night. Four quick baskets
-two each by Tom Jorgensen and
Ron Kramer-gave the home team
an 8-0 lead. But Minnesota re-
fused to wilt, finally tying the
score at 14 when Jerry Dommeyer
scored with eight minutes gone in
the first half.
One minute later a field goal
by forward Dave Tucker gave 'the
winners a lead they never relin-
quished. The Gophers kept on
applying the pressure and by half
time amassed a 46-32 advantage.
After the intermission Michigan
made a valiant effort to hold on to
the coveted seventh spot in the
Big Ten standings.
Minnesota's Maurice DeMarais
opened the scoring but then the
Wolverines hit- for six straight
points. With five minutes played,
the last of three successive baskets
by Pete Tillotson reduced the lead
to six points, 55-49.
It was at this point thai
the visitors started clicking-anC
Michigan never again threatened.

George Kline and Dommeyer led
the scoring attack for the win-
ners. The 6'3" Kline tallied 26
points while Dommeyer notched
22.
Five men hit in double figures
for the Wolverines with Kramer's
20 leading the parade. Michigan's
lumbering center, however, did not
play an inspiring game.
Kramer was successful on less
than 30 percent of his field goal
tries and could not make any of
five attempts from the free throw
line. Many of his passes went
awry and he had great difficulty
in guarding Dommeyer in the
second half.
