Action Slated
For Barron
In CaeTilt
By PETE KASS
The Michigan cagers will get the
chance tonight to end their six
game Conference losing streak
right where it started when they
face Wisconsin in Yost fieldhouse
at 8 p.m.
Jim Barron is expected to see
prolonged action for the first time
in almost two seasons and may
even break into the starting five.
Barron's knee has been progressing
and with the added confidence, he
has shown the ability to drive for
the hoop with some, of his old
skill.
Coach Bill Perigo said that with
Barron in the lineup the team
seems to function like a real ball
club because he has the real
"know-how" to make the squad
move.
The Badgers toppled the Wol-
rverines from the cagers' early-
season second-place rung with a
69-58 victory at Madison. The
Wolverines were sailing along on
the crest of a three-game winning
streak until they were shocked into
reality by the fastrmoving Badgers.
Since then th Big Ten cam-
paign has held nothing but set-
backs for 12erigo's crew.
Miller, Mueller Head Badgers
The visitors' hurrying offense is
paced by Dick Miller and Curt
Mueller. Miller at 6'3" tops the
Wisconsin scoring list with a 19.6
per-game clip, while Mueller leads
the-squad in rebounding by a wide
margin and is second in point pro-
duction. Dick Jorgensen is Miller's
running mate at guard while Bob
Litzow teams with Mueller at for-
ward and John Parker fills the
center slot.
The Wolverines will counter with
big Ron Kramer, who is currently
moving at 20.6 point average pace.
Captain Tom Jorgensen will prob-
ably start at one of the guard spots
with Pete Tillotson and Randy
Tarrier operating from the f or-
wards; Perigo expects a lot of men
to see action.
The Wolverines need this game~
quite badly to keep from slipping
into ninth place in the Conference
standings. The Badgers rest a half
game behind the cagers and are
eager to vacate the position. Be-.
sides the threat of slipping deeper
into the second division, the Wol-
verines must win three of their
remaining four contests to finish
at the break-even mark.

Coach Newt Loken's undefeated
gymnasts will attempt to go over
the final hurdle in their dual-meel
schedule when they meet Wiscon-
sin today in the I-M Building at
4 p.m.
A very entertaining afternoon is
in line for the fans in attendance.
Besides watching the -Wolverines
go after their first undefeated
campaign since 1950, Coach Loken
has some very interesting "extras"
lined up.
Despite the fact that gymnastics
is one of the most interesting
sports to watch, many fans do not
understand the various exercises
which the athletes go through. Be-
cause of this, Coach Loken will
have two of - his freshmen go
through exercises on the various

Stiff Competition in Store
For Wolverine *T1raekmen

By DAVE RORABACHER
Michigan's rebounding wrestling
squad will be heavily favored to
down Ohio State's Buckeyes when
the two teams clash this afternoon
at Columbus.
The Buckeye grapplers, although
full of potential, are reported to be
in rather poor condition physically.
They are expected to pose their
most serious threat in the heavy-
weight division where Ted Rader
and star gridder James Parker,
both fine men, will be ready to go
pending Coach Casey Fredericks'
call.
Wolverine 147 pounder Don
Haney will be missing from today's
match due to an ankle injury, the
same hindrance which kept him
from competing against Toledo.
However, the grappling star is
expected to be sufficiently recover-
ed to defend his Big Ten title next
weekend.
Hirt to Replace Haney
Coach Cliff Keen plans to move

and insert Jack Porter to fill Hirt's
vacated 137 pound spot.
At 167 pounds John McMahon,
conqueror of two Big Ten cham-
pions, will face sophomore Buckeye
Edward Nicholson as he attempts
to continue his unbeaten string.
In tuning up for the defense of
his conference 157 pound crown,
Captain Mike Rodriguez will be
pitted against OSU's Gene Weiss,
a junior who wrestled at 167 last
season.
The remainder of the Michigan
team will be: 123--Charlie Ander-
son; 130-Dan Deppe; 177-Jack
Marchello; 191 and Hvy.-Steve
Zervas and Tom Krause (unde-
cided),.
Keen is viewing today's meet
merely as a conditioner for next
week's Big Ten Tournament. This
is due to the fact that the outcome
has no bearing on the placenent
in the conference standings.

Aside from Switzer's goals, Bleau
treated the 3,000 partisan Michi-
gan fans to one of the most brilli..-
ant exhibitions of goal-tending
they will ever see. Cheers reward-
ed' the Montreal wizard for many
of his incredible total of 50 saves.
Bleau's efforts ran the gamut
from leaping catches of high shots
to falling on blistering drives at
the split second that they whizzed

by him toward apparently certain
goals.
Michigan's passing was about
as sharp as ever; its shooting was
excellent. But only Switzer could
find the formula for crossing up
the overworked goalie.
Having arrived by train at 5:30
yesterday afternoon, Montreal had
to do most of its warming up dur-
ing the first period. Its defense
was especially weak with 25 plays'
going to Bleau before being brok-
en up.
Switzer got Michigan off to the
lead at 2:11 when he pounded the
third of a series of rebounds off
Bleau into the net.
At 14:32 Montreal tied the score
on one of its rather infrequent first
stanza drives into the Wolverine
zone. Mathieu Girard sent the
puck flying from 20 feet out over
Michigan's goal-defender Lorne
Howes' outstretched glove.
Early in the final stanza Switzer
put the Wolverines ahead again on
a pass from McDonald, but the
Carabins stayed in the game with
Norm Bradley's rebound score at
7:09.
The stage was set for Switzer to
burst the game open with three
goals in less than three minutes,
beginning at 13:51. Plays that
were thwarted earlier were the
master of tired goalie Bleau.

Only a loss to Illinois has blotted
their late-season splurge, and the
Badgers will still be smarting from

Loken's men, the only team to
hand the Illini a setback this year.

MAL AG A PIPES
"Sweet from the First Pipeful"A

Outstanding track talent won't
be a Michigan monopoly at this
afternoon's quadrangular meet be-
ginning at 1 p.m. at Yost Field
House.
Although the Wolverines will be
favored to outscore their oppon-
ents from Ohio State, ,Western
Michigan and Marquette, they face
stiff competition in most of today's
events. This is their last warmup
for next week's Big Ten Cham-
pionship Meet at East Lansing.
Some of the greatest challenges
to Michigan's domination of the
meet will be in the short distance
races. Sprinters Jim Pace and Bob
Brown and hurdlers Tom Hen-
dricks and Brendon O'Reilly are
opposed by an array of highly-
rated visiting thinclads.
Having defeated Illinois' Abe
Woodson last week, Ohio State's
Roger Houck appears as one of the
men to beat in the dashes. John
Hudson, Western Michigan's first-
placer in the Michigan State Re-
lays and Michigan AAU Meet, also
outranks the steadily-improving,
upset-minded Pace and Brown.
Formidable Hurdlers
O'Reilly in high hurdles and
low-hurdler Hendricks will have
formidable competition from Buck-
eyes Houck and Lee Williams and
Marquette's Glen Goebel.
Hendricks and Williams will also
be the leading contenders in the
broad jump. The Wolverines' star
will be haid-pressed to top Willi-
ams, whose best effort this year
has been a leap of 22'.
Coach Don Canham's decision
not to use Captain Ron Walling-
ford in the two-mile race may
equalize that event. Besides Wol-
verines Geert Keilstrup and Hal-
mar Dollwet, Dave Duffett of Mar-
quette and Bill Pyle of Western
Michigan are capable of covering
the distance faster than 9:40.
Pete Gray, who'holds the Field
House record of 1-52.8 in the 880
yard run, should finish ahead of
leading rivals Tom Lehmkuhl of
Marquette, Byron Skinner of West-
ern Michigan, Jack Blackburn of
Ohio State and teammate Robin
Varian.
Bob Rudesill and Dick Flodin in
the 440, Laird Sloan in the 600 andj
Gray and Varian in the 1000 are
indications of Michigan's power in
the other middle-distance races.
Wallingford Favored

best conference time (4:14.6) in3

race the other Wolverine entries,4

well as several visiting opponents.c

tion. George Gluppe will join the
more experienced Brown, Flodin
and Rudesill in the event.
Except for the broad jump, the
field events will have Michigan
men in favorite roles. Shot-putter
Dave Owen, high jumpers O'Reilly
and Mark Booth and pole vaulters
Eeles Landstrom and Bob Apple-
man are among the top Big Ten
performers so far this season. To-
day's competition will probably not
be of that caliber.
I-1 Relays,
The finals in the Intramural
Relays will be run off this
afteinoon during the quadrang-
ular track meet which begins at
1 p.m. at Yost Field House. The
top four teams in the fraternity,
residence halls and independent
divisions will run to determine
the respective championships.

MIKE RODRIGUEZ, Michigan's
grappling captain, is an All-Amer-
lean, it was learned yesterday.
The agile junior, defending Big
4Teni champion and one of -the
finest wrestlers in college competi-
tion, was picked as the 157-pound
representative on the mid-season

Team.
Don Haney, Wolverine 147
poun4er, was elected to the third
team.
Selections are made by college
wrestling coaches throughout the
nation.

Special to The DailyV
COLUMBUS, O.-There's liable
to be a tidal wave here this after-
noon..
At least that's what usually hap-
pens when you take Michigan's
swimming team, add to it Ohio
State's squad, put them both in the
Ohio State Varsity Pool and bring
in some 1600 Buckeye rooters.
Today, the Ohio State and Mich-
igan natators will embark on the
23rd year of one of the fiercest
swimming rivalries in the country.
Buckeyes Undefeated
If you go strictly by this season's
record, what is usually a nip-and-
tuck meet could turn into a rout
for 0Sk. The Buckeyes are un-
defeated again this year-Michi-
gan has lost three times.
But for this meet, you can usu-
ally throw away the record book.
Take last year for example-Ohio
State won the Big Ten champion-
ship and the NCAA championship,
yet underdog Michigan upset them
when they met in a dual meet,
47-46.
Naturally, circumstances are
different this year. True, both
teams have lost much valuable
strength since last season, but the
Wolverines seem to have suffered

more, especially since the Ward-
'rops won't be present.
Last year, also, the meet was
held in Ann Arbor. Except for the
Daily reporter and a few scattered
alumni, the Wolverines won't see
many friendly faces at the pool.
As far as the chances for an
upset are concerned, Coach Gus
Stager is not overly optimistic.
He feels that the Wolverines' hopes
lie in their greater depth.
Stager feels that for those
events in which Ohio State takes
first place, the Wolverines should
take second and third. Add to this
a few choice upsets and Michigan
might be able to edge out OSU.
*Captain John O'Reilly's long
practice sessions seem to be pay-
ing off, and he looms as a possible
winner in 220- and 440-yard free
style.
The only event in which Michi-
gan is the favorite is the diving.
It is entirely conceivable that they
could cop both first and second
places.
