'NOT ENOUGH POINTS':
Cagers Continue Slump

Student Government Council
MASS TRYOUT MEETING

By DALE CANTOR
There's something wrong some-
where.,
The Wolverine cagers have drop-
ped their last six Conference deci-
sions, the most recent setback
being a five-point beating by In-
diana Saturday night, which has
started Michigan basketball fans
asking for a valid excuse for the
dismal record compiled by the
Maize and Blue.
Coach Bill Perigo, the man who
knows, had several comments to
offer, "Just not enough scoring
on our side."
No Bench Strength
The genial Michigan coach add-
ed that he has no bench strength.
The loss of Jerry Stern has neces-
sitated his using Randy Tarrier
and Milt Lingle, who both turned
in fine jobs Saturday, leaving the
Wolverine bench in a very weak
condition.
Surprisingly, a fast-breaking
Michigan started against Indiana
and drove hard throughout the
first half; but the second half was
a different story. The Wolverines

just couldn't keep up the pace and
the Hustlin' Hoosiers took advan-
tage of the tiring five.
A number of things became ob-
vious .in Saturday's battle. Sopho-
more playmaker Billy Wright, us-
ually outstanding defensively and
offensively, and Pete Tillotson,
who failed at the free throw line
in the clutch, are certainly capable
of much better play.,
There's not much else that can
be said about Ron Kramer. Steal-
ing the show with a record-break-
ing 30-point performance, the
broad-shouldered center still per-
sists as the cohesive force. But,
he's only human and the rigors of
playing ' a fast-running game
caught up with him at the end of
the battle, when Big Ron muffed
an easy two points.
"The boys are in good spirits,
but I don't think they've caught
up yet on sleep lost during finals,
and they need rest above anything
else," concluded Perigo.
Well, the boys are now resting-
in eighth place in the Big Ten
standings.

up gymnasts swept away their big-
gest late season hurdle on the way
to.their first undefeated year since
1950.
The only team now standing in
the way of the gymnasts' hopes is
Wisconsin. This team is not overly
strong and better-than-average
chances are expected for a victory
when the two teams clash next
weekend at the I-M Building.
Overpower OSU
The winning Wolverines com-
pletely outclassed Ohio State, a
team that was expected to come
up with some stiff opposition. Such
names as Fletcher Gilders and Don
Harper had kept CoachhNewt
Loken on the wary side when he
discussed his team's chances.
Loken's crew made such pessim-
ism look ridiculous on Saturday,
however, as they put together 19
out of 21 completed routines for a
71-39 win.
Ohio State lost the service of
Gilders for all but the trampoline
event because of a pulled shoulder
muscle, but even so the difference
in scores shows things about the
high plane on which the Wolver-
ines are performing.
The figure 19 out of 21 com-
pleted routines should not be cas-
ually glanced over.
Successive completions of good
routines are what pile up the
points and win the meets. "We

have been concentrating on getting
every man through every routine
since we started working out,"
says Loken.
"I have never seen a team go all
the way through all 21 routines in
my experience in the sport: Per-
haps this team can prove to me
that it can be done. They certainly
have the potential.
"If we should do this at the
Wisconsin meet next Saturday, I
would feel that we had reached
that high point we want to reach
for the Big Ten Meet two weeks
from now," said Loken.
Outstanding at Columbus were
the two top point getters for Mich-
igan, Ed Gagnier and Nick Wiese.
Both men have been finishing one-
two or two-one in most of the
events they have ertered;
Last weekend the always-excel-
lent Gagnier took three firsts in
this friendly rivalry and Wiese had
two.

BILL MacFARLAND
. .. "hat trick" Saturday
Track Squad
Reveals Depth
Lack of depth, supposedly a real
problem for Michigan's tracksters,
apparently was ironed out Satur-
dqy night at Lawrence, Kansas.
A thrilling 58-56 win . by the
Wolverines over the powerful Kan-
sas University team revealed some
hidden talent in some events.
Brendan O'Reilly, normally a high-
jumper, took a third in both the
60-yard highs and lows.
Tom Hendricks, the footballer,
more at home on the lows, won the
event in :06.9. '
It was the fifteenth straight
dual-meet win for the Maize and
Blue, its last loss coming at the
hands of an old nemesis, Illinois,
in 1954.
Saturday afternoon finds a
quadrangular meet at Yost Field
House, involving Ohio State, Mar-
quette and Western Michigan, be-
sides the hosts.
Ron Wallingford, Coach Don
Canham's marvelously-conditioned
captain, proved beyond question to
be one of the better distance men
on the North American continent.
His 4:14.6 mile bettered John
Moule's 4:16.2, set here last year,
and he broke his own precedent of
9:24.5, set here also last year, with
a 9:21.7 two-mile.

games.
The race which determines the
two League representatives to the
N.C.A.A. tournament in Colorado
Springs should go down to the .
wire with an exciting finish.
At the moment, Michigan Tech
appears to have the best chance
of entering the tournament, while
Michigan and Colorado College
will have to fight it out for the
remaining berth. Midhigan Tech
still plays six League games; Mich-
igan and Colorado College each
play four.
The action this weekend will pit
Michigan Tech at East Lansing
against cellar-riding Michigan
State, while Colorado College hosts
Minnesota.
Michigan takes a breather from
WIHL activity against the Univer-
sity of Montreal. Michigan will
then square off against Michigan
Tech four crucial times in the final
two weekends.
"Michigan played its best hockey
this year last weekend," Coach Vic
Heyliger stated. "If the boys can
continue to play like that, they
will be tought to beat. Both offen-

sive lines looked very good and the
defense played exceptionally well."
"Captain Bill MacFarland seem-
ed back in his old form for the
first time this season." MacFar-
land scored a "hat trick"-three
goals-in Saturday's game.
Michigan goalie Lorne Howes,
who played a sensational series
against Minnesota, has been one of
the steadiest players all season.

An inspired Rogue hockey team
turned back Newman Club, 6-1, at
the Coliseum last night, to win the
intramural first place champion-
ship.
Glenn Stevens led the aggressive
Rogues to victory with three goals.
Fred Potter added two more tallies
to Stevens' "hat trick," and Roger
Netzer also scored for the victors.

period, the Rogues, demonstrating

swarmed the Newman goal. Al-
though the losers staged a game
defensive battle, they failed to halt
the brilliant Rogue passing ar...
tack.
Both goalies, Wesley Maze for
the winners, and Pete Sharkey of
Newman, turned in creditable per-
formances.
Tempers flared as Chi Psi de-
feated the Monarchs, 3-1, in the
second place playoff battle. Johnny
Ziggler, Dale Ewart, and Dick
Wood scored for the winners. Bob
DeGrazia picked up the lone Mon-
arch tally in a game which ended
in a display of left hooks,
Bob Galloway's two goals paced
Phi Kappa Psi to a 7-1 victory
over the? Dents in a third place
playoff contest. Bill Roeder, play-
ing goalie for the first time, per-
formed brilliantly for the Phi Psi
team.
The Cadets scored once in each
period to top the Law Club, 3-1,
