let the tie remain for more than
eight short seconds. Almost im-
mediately following the face-off
Rendall took a quick pass from
Bill MacFarland and shoved it by
the startled McCartan.
The Wolverines upped their lead
to 3-1 in the second period, when
at 9:36, Rendall scored his second
goal, again on a good pass from
Captain MacFarland.
Then came the wild third period.
The Gophers struck hard and fast
and brought the cheering mob to
its feet, as big Dave Rodda took
a pass from Yackel and Jetty and
bashed it by Howes at 6:01.
As the crowd chanted for the
Gophers to tie it up, McIntosh
came through with his game-icing
blast, at 13:03. Just a minute and
8 seconds later Jerry Karpinka
added insult to injury by slapping
home Michigan'a fifth goal on a
brilliant unassisted play.
The Gophers scored their third
goal of the evening as Yackel
took a pass from Bob Tlurk at
18:49, but it was too late. They

Cagers Seek to Snap Losing Streak

A solid, revenge-minded Kansas
University track squad will host
Michigan's proud thinclads tonight
in a battle for Midwest suprema-
cy in the Jayhawks' Allen Field-
house at Lawrence.
Last year, when the meet was
held here, the Wolverines ran
roughshod over the hopless Kan-
sans, 802/3 - 33%/3, but that was last
This season finds Kansas with
virtually no losses from their 1954
squad, plus some promising addi-
tions. Michigan, on the other
hand, has been hit heavily by
graduation and eligibility losses..
Some unusual entries will be
slated for Don Canham's Big Ten
rulers, due to this sudden lack of
depth. For example, Eeles Land-
strom, whose reputation results
from his being Europe's outstand-
ing pole-vaulter, has been entered
in the broad jump, an event in
which he has done 22'6". Another
vaulter, Tom Skimming, has leapt
22', and will also be entered in
the event.
Unfamiliar High Hurdlers
The high hurdles, a division in
which sophomore Dick Hill was to
be counted on, will find two un-
usual entries. They are the Irish-
man of high-jump fame, Brendan
O'Reilly, and quarter-miler Bob
Rudesill. Both have been some
service as hurdlers, however, and
should fill in at least acceptably
for the ineligible Hill.
. In the sprints, the loss through
ineligibility of speedy John John-
son could be solved with the ad-
dition of footballer Jim Pace. Pace
was unveiled last weekend at the
Michigan State Relays, and al-
though he failed to qualify for the
finals, due to a bad start, he was
gaining on the fabulous Jim Gol-

liday at the tape in his heat. He
joins Hendricks and letterman Bob
Brown in the 60.
Hopeless Duel
Dave Owen, the Western Con-
ference shot put champ, will re-
new his seemingly hopeless duel
with NCAA champion Bill Nieder.
Capt. Ron Wallingford may or
may not be called upon to run
both the mile and the two-mile,
the latter his specialty. Sopho-
mores Geert Keilstrup and Hel-
mar Dollwet are also entered in
these two events, respectively. The
half-mile appears strong with the
All-American and Big Ten king,
Pete Gray, and an outstanding
newcomer, Robin Varian.

clude distance man Al Frame,

OSU To Test
Gym Squad
At Columbus
Coach Newt Lokens gymnasts
arrived at Columbus yesterday
evening, and this afternoon will
take another giant step toward
their first )jndefeated campaign
since 1950, when they meet Ohio
State at 2 p.m.
Despite their impressive win over
Minnesota, the Wolverines are not
taking this contest lightly. Ohio
State definitely has the material
to hand Loken's lads their initial
dual setback of the year.
The biggest gun for the Buck-
eyes this season has been Fletcher
Gilders, an all-around performer
who works every event. Gilders is
liable to compete in any event
where he's needed-and his per-
formances have shown that he's
capable of winning.
Trampoline Expert
The hosts also have Don Harper,
a trampoline expert who can hold
his own with anyone in the coun-
try. This is easily proven by the
fact that he represented the United
States in the Pan American games.
As Coach Loken so bluntly puts it,
"He's probably the very best in the

In Final Home Appearance

sixth in the league, is still hoping
for a first division finish. The
Hoosiers, however, have not fared
well on the road, winning only one
of four earlier Conference games
away from the I.U. Fieldhouse.
Branch McCracken, Indiana
coach, will probably start this
quintet: Wally Choice and Jerry
Thompson at the forwards, Archie
Dees at center, and Pete Obrem-
skey and Hallie Bryant at guards.
Choice is third in the Big Ten
basketball scoring race with a 20.7
average in nine games. He is
hitting from the floor at a .527
clip, which makes him king-pin in
the scoring department..
Sharpshooting Archie Dees is
the 6'8" sophomore who paved the
road to victory for the' Hoosiers
against the Maize and Blue by
scoring 25 points and turning in
some very fine rebounding.
The Wolverines will tangle with
a ball club which is living up to
Coach McCracken's policy - "a
never - stop - running, aggressive,
ball-hawking type of play."
On the other hand, Perigo feels
that he will be sending out one of
the slower teams Michigan has
had in a long time. The Wolver-
ines.are still minus a pair of con-
sistent scoring guards and are still
handicapped by a weakness in out-

Michigan's swimming team will
attempt to make it two straight
today, when they oppose Indiana
at the Varsity pool at' 2:30 p.m.
This will be the fans last chance
to see Michigan at home this sea-
son as their final dual meet next
week is at Ohio State, and the Big
Ten meet is at Purdue a week
It will also be their last chance
ever to see a Michigan swimming
team compete in the Varsity Pool,
since next season, the newly con-
structed swimming pool next door
will be used.
Michigan Favored
In what is a rather unsual cir-
cumstance, the Hoosiers, with a
4-1 record appear to be slight
underdogs to the Wolverines, who
have managed but one victory thus
far this season. Their over-all
depth plus the fact that they are
swimming in their home pool gives
Michigan the advantage.
Both squads boast at least two
or three really top-rate performers.
Indiana's Bill Woolsey from Ha-
waii is truly one of the world's top
swimmers. Last season he won 16
firsts and one second in dual meet
competition, specializing in the 220
and 440-yard free style.
Close behind Woolsey is another
Hawaiian, Sonny Tanabe, who
swims the 50, 100, 200 and individ-
ual medley with equal proficiency.
Wardrops Best
The Michigan tankmen are led
,t of tcourse by the Wardrop twins,
but also claim top billing for John
O'Reilly and undefeated diver
Charlie Bates.
However, the margin of victory
could easily be provided by Michi-
gan's extra depth which Indiana
seems to lack. Men such as Jim
Kruthers, Fritz Myers and Jim

Thurlow are almost sure to pick up
many points for the Wolverines.
Probably the most interesting
race of the day will match Woolsey
against Jack Wardrop in the 220
and 440. Wardrop last year set a
new world's record of 2:03.4 in the
220. Woolsey's best time is 2:04.9.
Another interesting race should
develop when Myers and Bert
Wardrop face Tanabe in the indi-
vidual medley.

side shooting. Heavy fouling by
the Maize and Blue hasn't helped
the situation either.
Perigo Slightly Optimistic
However, Perigo is still slightly
optimistic about the chances of
his five to defeat the Hoosiers.
Though he would not predict a
victory, he commented, "We could
still go ahead and win." There
was great emphasis on the "could."
The Wolverine starting lineup
will probably consist of Tom Jorg-
ensen and Billy Wright at the
guards, Ron Kramer at center, and
Pete Tillotson and Randy Tarrier
at* the forwards.
Kramer will go into the second
Hoosier contest with a 20.1 aver-
age for 17 games, with a total of
129 field goals and 84 free throws.
He is fourth in individual scoring,
right behind Wally Choice.
Matmen Rate
Favorites Role
Over" Wildcats
Attention will be on the 157-
pound match when the Wolverine
wrestlers take on Northwestern at
Evanston, Illinois this afternoon.
Competing in this weight class
will be the star performers of each
team: Michigan's Mike Rodriguez
vs. Northwestern's Ken Kraft.
Rodriguez, captain of the local
matmen, is. Big Ten defending
champion and has been defeated
only once this season-by Dave
Johnson of Pittsburgh in a 4-3
- Reputed to possess great speed
and strength plus a wide variety
of holds, Kraft, a junior, is un-
defeated in collegiate competition
save for his loss to Rodriguez in
last year's meet. At that time
Rodriguez pinned the Wildcat star
late in the first period of their
Since then, however, Kraft has
been so impressive in piling up a
record of nine straight victories
that a bitter duel in today's match
appears inevitable.
The remainder of the North-
western team is relatively weak.
Even the appearance of Donald
Duck on the roster at 123 pounds
is not expected to boostthe Wild-
cats' victory hopes to more than
an outside chance.
The Wolverines are expected to
use the same line-up that was
victorious against Illinois save for
the possible substitution of recent-
ly re-eligible Dan Deppe to Charlie
Anderson in the 123 pound divi-




NEW YORK (P-The big one of
the indoor track season - the
National AAU championships -
will be"held in Madison Square
Garden today.
Until the New York Athletic
Club meet last week, the season
had been pretty much on the
routine side-slightly dull, if you
please-because of the absence of
Wes Santee in the mile and the
ensuing slow times.
But Charlie Jenkins and Parry
O'Brien shattered world indoor
records in the NYAC meet, and the
latter is on record as saying he's

ready for the 60-foot indoor shot-
O'Brien is the only human being
ever toheave the shot 60 feet,
but he's never done it indoors.
Jenkins has been unbeaten in
five races and h week ago lowered
Whitfield's world 500-yard stand-j
ard to 56.4.
