Gagnier
Outstanding
As Illini Win
Special To The Daily
CHAPEL HILL, N. C.-By virtue,
of a sparkling 25-point perform-
ance by Ed Gagnier, Michigan's
one-man gymnastics team placed
first in the NCAA Championships
held here last night.
Representatives from 26 differ-
ent schools were competing in the
tournament.
Gagnier took a second in the all-
around, second in the parallel bars,
and a fourth in the high bar, com-
peting against 30 or 40 men in each
event.
Illinois' Big Ten champs, boast-
ing a 10-man squad, also emerged
victorious here with a total of 123
points. The individual star for the
Illini was Don Tonry, who repeated
his Big Ten championship form in
winning the coveted all-around
title.
Penn State, Florida State, and
UCLA also finished ahead of Mich-
igan in the tourney. Right behind
the Wolverines in standings were
Michigan State, Navy and Los
Angeles State.

THE EARLY BIRD
GETS THE WORM!

Special To The Daily
CHICAGO - Michigan's track
captain, chunky Ron Wallingford,
ran the best collegiate two-mile in
the country this year last night,
only to lose to Iowa's ineligible
Deacon Jones before 16,000 en-
thusiastic onlookers in the annual
Chicago Daily News Relays.
The pace was too much for ex-
Olympic great and world record-
holder Horace Ashenfelter, who
dropped out of the running early.
The winning time turned in by
Jones was 9:04.9. Wallingford was
clocked in 9:05.1.
An idea of the pace can be gar-
nered from the fact that the first
mile was run in 4:34. The mile-
and-a-half time was 6:48 - ten
seconds faster than Wallingford
was able to run the 11/2 mile run
last year.
At this-the 112-mile point-
Ashenfelter, who was setting the
pace, faltered, ae dWallingford
was forced to take over. This, ac-
cording to Coach Don Canham,
spoiled his chances, for if Ashen-
felter had stayed in front, it is
assumed that he could have worn
Jones down and Wallingford could
have passed In the stretch.
With one lap to go, Jones at-
tempted to take the lead, but Wall-

Spring Jaunt

scheduled for Michigan's Big Ten
tennis champions this season.
There are six matches scheduled
for the home courts, with the
opener against the University of
Detroit, April 26.

ters will meet Vanderbilt, Georgia

ingford held him off. Then, with
about 10 yards to go, he barreled
past Wallingford to victory.
Third and fourth were Spartans
Selwyn Jones and Henry Kennedy,
respectively.
In other events, Michigan's mile-
relay team raced to victory in its
section of the University mile relay
in an undetermined time, said by
Canham to be around 3:20. The
official timing was 3:45.3, but this
poor timing was due to the fact
that the anchor man ran an extra
lap.
The quartet consisted of Laird
Sloan, George Gluppe, Dick Flodin
and Bob Rudesill. Runner-up was
Wisconsin.
Michigan's Eeles Lanpdtrom
placed third in the pole vault with
a leap of 14'6". The event was
won by ex-Ohio Stater Jerry Wel-
bourne in 15'/". Second was Bob
Richards, who managed 14'9".
Wolverine Brandan O'Reilly
high-jumped 6'4", good for a third-
place tie. Ernie Shelton of Los
Angeles and Floyd Smith of Chi-
cago tied for the one-two spots
with leaps of 6'61".
The other Maize and Blue entry
-Jim Pace--ran well in the 50-
yard dash to take third in his heat.
Only the first and second-place
finishers in each heat qualified for
the finals, however.
SPARTANS LOSE
COLUMBIA, S. C. (M.)-Mich-
igan State's Ray Collard hit t*o
home runs and, a triple yester-
day, but the Spartans lost the
opening game of their 15-day
spring training baseball tour to
the University of South Caro-
lina, 7-5.

LORNE WORSLEY, the New York Rangers' workhorse netminder,
was no match for the power-laden attack of the Montreal Cana-
diens last night, the Canadiens skating to a 3-1 Stanley Cup
victory at New York.
Wings Win in Overtime;
Canadiens Top Rangfers

TORONTO,(RP)-Fiery little Ted
Lindsay, who watched Toronto
score two goals while he was serve
ing penalties, tied the score late
in the third period last night and
counted again in the sudden-death
overtime as the Detroit Red Wings
edged the Maple Leafs, 5-4, in the
third game of their Stanley Gaup
semi-final playoff for a 3-0 lead
in their best of seven series.
The Red Wings, defending cup
champions, now lead the best of
seven series, 3-0, with the fourth
game to be played here Tuesday
night.
The Maple Leafs, playing with-
out their great center, Tod Sloan,
who was injured in the second
game at Detroit Thursday, held a
2-1 lead the end of the first period
and increased it to 3-1 after the
second frame.
Then the Red Wings, a terrific
comeback squad, counted three
times in the final 20 minutes to tie

Toronto at regulation time ending
in a 4-4 tie.
That set the stage for Lindsay,
who had scored the fourth Detroit
goal In the third period, to drive
home a short shot from the goal
mouth at 4:22 of the sudden death
overtime period.
Montreal 3, New York 1
NEW YORK (P)-Bert Olmstead,
who set a National Hockey League
record for assists this season,
scored twice last night to lead
Montreal toa 3-1 victory over the.
New York Rangers and enabled the
Canadiens to take a 2-1 lead in
their Stanley Cup semi-final play-
off series,
The high-scoring Canadiens
played it unusually close to the
vest. Only Guy Gendron was able
to pierce their tight defense, netting
the Blueshirts' lone goal to tie the
score at 16:02 of the opening per-
iod.
