Minnesota's Golden Gophers en-
ter Ann Arbor today intent, on re-
peating the 10-4 whipping they
gave Michigan's hockey team one
year ago tonight.
The Gophers will make a two-
night stand here this weekend,
with the face off for tonight's con-
test slated for 8 p.m. at the Coli-
seum.
Tickets On Sale
Tickets are on sale until 4:30
this afternoon at the Athletic Ad-
ministration Building and from
5 p.m. on at the Coliseum.
It was just one year ago tonight
that Johnny Mayasich and Com-
pany roared up and down the
Coliseum ice to hand the NCAA
Champs their worst defeat of the
season. But Mayasich is gone, as
is the Gopher's stellar goalie, Jim
Mattson.
The squad is still plenty tough,
however, as evidenced by last
weekend's close 3-2 loss to the
U.S. Olympic team. 4
Leading the strong, yet still
sixth-place Gophers, who hold a
12-game edge over Michigan in the
long rivarly, is Ken Yackel, Minn-
eapolis' answer to Ron Kramer.

Matrnen in Dual Meets'
Against Hoosiers, Illini

READY FOR its biggest weekend of the 'season is the Wolverine gymnastics squad (from left to

ground is the chalk box used by many gymnasts before going through their routines.
OPEN IN CHAMPAIGN TODAY:
Michigan Gym Squad at Illinois, Indiana

By JOHN LaSAGE
Coach Newt Loken and his
Michigan gymnastics team arriv-
ed at Champaign yesterday after-
noon for." their dual meet with
Illinois tonight, the first of a
weekend series which also in-
cludes an encounter with Indiana
tomorrow.
Tonight's meet with the Illini,
defending Big Ten champions, is
the toughest dual meet on the
Wolverines' schedule, according to
Loken.
"This is definitely our most im-
portant meet. The boys haven't
beaten Illinois in quite some time
and are really looking forward to
turning the trick this time."
Illinois Tough
Loken's men, fresh from a de-
cisive victory over Michigan State,
will be competing with some of the
top performers in the nation when
they meet the Illini.
Illinois has a great one-two
punch in Jon Culbertsonand Dick
Jirus. Both are all-around per-
formers on the parallel bars, high
bars, side horse, and flying rings.
In back of this combination, the
Orange and Blue bolsters a for-
midable tumbling twosome in
Frank Hailand and Dan Lirot.
Lirot won the tumbling champion-
ship at Sarasota, Fla., during the
holidays. As far as Loken known,
he is the only tumbler who can
do a successful double back som-
ersault.
Michigan, however, will be ready
for Illinois with its two top per-
formers, Ed Gagnier and Nick
Wiese, along with steady point-
getters like Captain Tony San An-
tonio; Wayne . Warren, Charley
Bates and Norm Neidermeier.
Gagnier, who took five firsts

against Michigan State last Mon-
day, will find tougher competition
against the Illini, but still should
provide strong leadership in the
Wolverines efforts to topple the
Conference champions.
Bates, Loken's only main hope
for points in the trampoline event,
will definitely compete against
Illinois as the swimming meet
scheduled for this weekend at
Iowa State has been postponed
until Monday.
"It's hard to tell just what Illi-
nois really has. The only time we
saw them was in the Midwest
Open Meet, and with 50 competit-
ors in each event, it's difficult to
tell whether they've still got the
team strength they had last year,"
Loken commented.
Illinois placed third in the Mid-
.west Open at Chicago's Navy Pier
last December 10. Michigan was
fo'urth.

Although the Wolverines are
definitely pointing for Illinois,
they haven't been taking their
meet tomorrow with Indiana light-
"The team has beaten Indiana
for the past several years," con-
fides the Michigan coach, "but
we're still looking for a real tough
time. We don't know much about
Indiana except they already own
a decisive victory over Ball State.
"They have a meal top perform-
er in Dick Albershardt, the N. C.
A.A. trampoline champion. Ed
Straub is their real all-around
man, since he works everything.
They also have Elmer Gates work-
ing the side horse, parallel bars,
and high bars."
The meets are scheduled to start
at 8:00 p.m. Ann Arbor time. The
team will return Sunday after-
noon.

This afternoon in Bloomington,
the Michigan wrestling team em-
barks upon the first stage of a
busy weekend when it faces an im-
proved band of grapplers from
Indiana University.
From there the team will make
a quick trip to Champaign-Ur-
bana, where tomorrow they will
meet the matmen from the Uni-
versity of Illinois, third place fin-
ishers in last year's Big Ten tour-
nament.
Hope To Rebound
Hoping to rebound from their
dismal showing against the Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh last week in
which they won only one match,
the Wolverines will present a de-
termined combiation of veterans
and newcomers.
Indiana, however, is bolstered
by the return from service of Jim
Ellis, Western Conference 147-
pound champ in 1951 and 157-
pound runner-up in 1952. The
Hoosiers will present a team com-
Iprised mainly of returning letter-
men.
Leading the Hoosiers will be
Dick Anthony, last year's runner-
up at the 177-weight in the Big
Ten tournament. Also giving the
Wolverines something to worry
about will be Mike Pihakis, 123,
Joe Shook, 130, Howard Fisher,

Rangers, 6.o0
By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Rookie Goalie Glenn
Hall worked his eighth shutout of
the season, tops in the National
Hockey League, as the third-place
Detroit Red Wings moved within
three points of second-place New
York by routing the Rangers, 6-0,
here last night.
Hall made 21 stops in blanking
the Rangers for the second straight
time in Detroit. Those are the
only Detroit victories in the eight-
game series between clubs.
Gordie Howe paced the Red
Wings 47-shot assault with two
oafs, his 20th and 21st of the
ason, for a 2-0 lead.
Marty Pavelich and Real Chev-
refils each added their third, Metro
Prystai his sixth, and Red Kelly
his 12th as Detroit went on to
hand New York its worst defeat of
the season,
Goalie Lorne Worsley made 41
saves to prevent a bigger rout and
was victimized by several freak
goals.
Howe's opener was a 55-foot
screen shot and his second a lazy
trickler that barely made it from
20 feet out while Worsley crawled
futilely in chase.
Chicago, meanwhile, also shut
out Boston last night, 5-0.

Illinois appears weaker than

Six Michigan Aracksters will V
participate in invitational track
meets tomorrow night, four going
to Chicago and two to Boston.
The event at Chicago is a Uni-
versity of Chicago invitational
meet, and Coach Don Canham is
sending two quarter-milers-Laird
Sloan and Bob Rudesill, a pole
valuter - Eeles Landstrom and
highdumper-Brendan O'Reilly.
Illini To Send Entire Squad
According to Canham, one of
Michigan's biggest track rivals,
the University of Illinois, is send-
ing virtually its entire squad up to
the Windy City to compete.
At Boston, quarter-miler Grant
Scruggs, last season's captain, who
will graduate at the end of this
semester, and Peter Gray, the Big
Ten half-mile king, will carry the
Maize and Blue into the annual
Knights of Columbus meet there.
Scruggs had his work cut out
for him, to say, the least. Also
competing in the 440 at Boston
will be Chuck Jenkins of Villanova,
the National AAU champion, and
Lou Jones, formerly of Manhattan,
who holds the world's record for
the 400 meters.
Star miler Wes Santee still is

not compete.
Gray To Face Sowell

man, Arnie Sowell, in the half-

One bright note was the an-
nouncement by Canham that Jim
Pace, the lightining-gaited sopho-
more who thrilled Michigan foot-
ball fans last fall, will report for
track after the final examination
period terminates.
Pace will be heavily counted-
upon to buoy the Wolverines in
the sprints, an event which, ac-
cording to the Michigan coach,
will be a bit lacking in depth this
season.
