Neither team played exceptional
ball, but the Wolvefines' first-
period ball handling left much to
be desired.
Displaying a numbness that
could probably be attributed to a
let-down after the Northwestern
win, the Wolverines were guilty
of some shoddy passing and slop-
py dribbling which made them ex-
tremely susceptible to the ball"
hawking of the alert Badgers.
Improve in Second Half
The caliber of Michigan's play
improved somewhat in the second
half, with Billy Wright and Randy
Tarrier each doing a little ball
stealing of their own.
Wright did some fine guarding
for Michigan's shifting man-to-
man defense. He was the most
consistent of the Ann Arbor play-
ers, collecting three field goals in
both the first and second periods.
A note of the impending fate
which was to befall Michigan was
ironically predicted, when immed-
lately after the start of the game
the field-house lights went out.
As far as Michigan was concerned
they never came on again.

Jorgenson, narrowed the margin
to 60-52 with five minutes re-
Miller Ends Threat
It looked as if th' Wolverines
were going to pull out a
last minute win until the Bad-
ger's sharp-shooting Dick Miller
dumped one in to end the Michi-
gan threat.
As in their previous defeats, the
lack of consistent scorers at the
guard positions seriously hampered
the spunky Wolverines. Michi-
gan's success this season will large-
ly depend on how well the guards
can find the range to the basket.

Gym Squad
Finally Ends
Illinois Jinx.
It was a fabulous weekend for
the Wolverine gymnasts, a week-
end in which they made history.
Never before in Michigan gym-
nastics has a Maize and Blue
squad been able to conquer the
Fighting Illini. Last Friday they
did it.t
It was no weak Illinois team
that the Wolverines faced, either.
In the opinion of Michigan coach
Newt Loken, the, Illini were very
close to the same team they had
been last year when they won the
Western Conference title.
A Little Weaker
"They're a little weaker in the
trampoline this year," Loken ad-
mitted, "but otherwise they don't
seem to have lost much."


AMES, Ia.--The favored Michi-
gan tankmen again faltered in the
final event, the 400 yard relay, last
night, and were forced into a dis-
appointing 42-42 deadlock with
host Iowa State.
Getting off to a record-breaking
start and maintaining a slight edge
over the Cyclones throughout most
of the meet was the order of the
day, as the Wolverine medley re-

League-Leading Icers in Top Form

Ron Wallingford

Two breathtaking wins over
Minnesota leave the Michigan
hockey team at the very top of the
WIHL, and the future is bright.
The Wolverines are now finally
beginning to get in condition. The
crucial. 2-0 and 2-1 wins over the
defense-minded Gophers seem to
indicate that Michigan is nearing
top form.
MSU Next
The immediate schedule ahead
sees another home-and-home ser-
ies with Michigan State this Fri-
day and Saturday. During orien-
tation week-on February 7 and
8-will come two rugged games
with always-strong Colorado Col-
lege here in Ann Arbor.

Heyliger is hoping that star Bill
MacFarland will be able to shake
his recent shoulder injury and will
regain his scoring form. He has
been playing with a taped shoulder
that especially hinders his ability
to shoot quickly.
The injury list has also plagued
several other Wolverines recently.
Defenseman Mike Buchanan is re-
covering from a bruised ankle,
while Wally Maxwell is getting
over a bothersome leg injury.
Jerry Karpinka has joined Ed
Switzer in the ranks of those
Otherwise, the Wolverines seem

ready for the "push" ahead.
Howes Brilliant
Stalwart in the recent thrilling

defensive duels with the Gophers
has been goalie Lorne Howes, who
is now sporting a fine 1.75 goals-I
per-game average in the eight
WIHL games so far this season.!
Sophomore Johnny McCarten of
Minnesota put on a dazzling per-
formance for Minnesota in the
nets. He seems to rank with Howes
and Ed Schiller of Michigan State
as one of the best in the League.

Graham Honored
Graham, Cleveland's g r e a t
passing quarterback who came
out of retirement to lead the
Browns to the National Football
League title, last night was
named winner of the S. Rae
Hickok $10,000 trophy as "pro-
fessional athlete of the year."

Second-Half See-Saw
Several times during the game
the Wolverines carved down a 16-
point Wisconsin lead to eight or
10 points, only to have the Badger
five build it back up. This see-
saw continued throughout the
second half.
With eight minutes to go, Michi-
gan started a full court press in
an attempt to keep Wisconsin from
y stealing the ball.

LAFAYETTE, Ind.-Illinois' Big
Ten basketball leaders beat down
Purdue's stubborn Boilermakers
with an eight-minute surge of
power in the, second half last
night, 92-76. h
The victory, following another
road success at Indiana Saturday
night, made the Illini odds-on
favorites in the Western Confer-
ence campaign.
Bruce Brothers, replacement for
Illinois forward Don Ohl, hit all
eight of his field goals in the
second half on only 11 shots.
The Boilermakers, suffering
their second loss in five league
games, were down only 44-42 at
the half. Illinois surged to 62-50
in the next five minutes but Pur-
due came back to trail only 64-60
with 10:43 to play.

Indiana Defeats MSU
threw balanced scoring against
Julius McCoy's 34 points and beat
Michigan State last night 79-70.
The Hoosiers thus kept alive their
hopes for a piece of the Big Ten
basketball title.
Michigan State missed its first
21 field shots. When McCoy fin-
ally hit after 5:44 the score was
13-5 against the Spartans, and
the closest they could get after
that was four points at 23-19.
The Hoosiers pulled out to 11
points at 43-32 at the half, and
it was never closer than nine
after that. The biggest spread
was 17 at 61-44.
Charley Brown was high for
Indiana with 19 points, but four
other Hoosiers were in double fig-
ures with him. Sophomore Paxton
Lumpkin, making his first start for
Indiana, went all the way and
was the floor general of the team,
although he scored only two points.

NFL Adopts
New Ruling
LOS ANGELES W)--The Nation-
al Football League yesterday voted
unanimously for a new rule which
will curb piling on and "lessen in-
juries and animosities."
Commissioner Bert Bell, who
stumped for the measure himself,
said that henceforth when a ball-
carrier is grounded as a result of
bodily contact, the ball immediate-
ly becomes dead.

The high spot of the Illinois
win, according to Loken, was Mi-
chigan's clean sweep of the top'
three places in the parallel bars
event. Ed Gagnier, 'Chico' San
Antonia, and Norm Neidermeier
came through in one-two-three or-
der to give the Wolverines 13 bad-
ly needed points.
To point to any one event or to
any one man, however, is not to
do complete justice, because as
Captain San Antonio put it, "It
was a team victory. Every man
was giving all he had."
Three in a Row
Michigan's victory over weaker
Indiana was not so sensational as
the Illinois win, as the Wolverines
won decisively, but it was the third
link in their aim for an undefeated
Some superb totals were run up
by Gagnier in competition against
the Hoosiers as he collected his
five firsts. The slim sophomore
had (on the basis of 300 points
for a perfect routine) totals of 280
on the parallel bars, 279 on the
high bar, and another 279 on the
side horse.

"There's no substitute for prac-
In those words Michigan track
captain Ron Wallingford sums up
his theory for track success.
The wiry Wolverine two-miler
has made practice pay off. For the
past two years he has been Michi-
gan's leading distance man.
Currently the Big Ten indoor
two-mile champion and winner in
every major dual meet he has par-
ticipated in, Wallingford seems
likely to scale new heights this
Times Have "Improved"
Armed with ideas he picked up
in England this past summer, the
22-year-old ace is currently burn-
ing up the cinders at Yost Field
House. Although his times have
been kept secret, Wallingford ack-
nowledges they have "improved.".
During his seven-week stay in
England he was impressed by the
"almost unbelievable" times run
by a surprising number of British
distance men. Not only the big
names like Chataway and Pirie,
but many less-known runners have
turned in impressive times.
The British are responsible for
many of the changed standards in
distance running. Leaving their
American counterparts far behind,
they have driven themselves to the
limits of human endurance in low-
ering previously untouchable world
Wallingford attributes the Brit-
ish success to "extremely intensive
training combined with a relaxed
frame of mind." Although they

may practice up to three hours
every day, the British keep a fresh
attitude toward their running by
learning to relax away from the
Always a hard worker, Walling-
ford has incorporated the British
ideas with his own. Like the Brit-
ish, he is making greater demands
on himself and seeing these de-
mands result in notable improve-
Jones, Kennedy Threats
This season's opponentstinclude
two outstanding threats to W al-
lingford's two-mile crown. They
are sophomores Deacon Jones of
Iowa, NCAA 4-mile cross-country
champion and Harry Kennedy, of
Michigan State, who is Big Ten
cross-country king. Wallingford
regards both as "formidable."
A native of Ottawa, Canada, the'
5'8" 147-pound Wallingford is the
fifth Michigan track captain in
the last five years to come from
outside the United States. Modest
of the honor, he says it will "give
me added incentive.
Wallingford attended the same
high school as Don McEwen, crack
Michigan distance man of a few
years ago. They were together on
the track team one year, when
Ron was a freshman and Don was
a senior.

stay, and Jack Wardrop staged the,
closest race of the evening in the
100-yard freestyle with McKevitt
coming in first with a time of 51

Scoring Differs
Scoring procedures at Iowa State
differed substantially from those
used by the Big Ten. The'system
of scoring relay events also worked
to the disadvantage of the Wol-
verines. In the Medley and 400-
yard freestyle relays the losing
team always receives no points,
while in the Big Ten, even the
second place team in dual meets
gains points.

GEORGE M. LINCOLN, JR. expects to receive his B.S. in met-
allurgical engineering from Lehigh University in. 1957. George
is active in sports, vice president of his junior class, and a partici-
pant in many other campus activities. He's starting his employ-
ment investigations early, for he feels that the selection of an
employer is one of the most important decisions in a man's career.
Charlie Smith answers:
They have an almost endless variety of interesting
problems to face, George. As a student of metallurgy
you know that about two-thirds of all known chemical
elements are metals. Many of them are revealing valu-
able new applications, when highly purified on a com-
mercial scale. Du Pont is greatly interested in several
metallic and semi-metallic elements.
My own experience at Du Pont ranges from work
on titanium pigments, to metallic titanium production,
and to the ultra-pure silicon used in transistors. You
can appreciate some of our metallurgical problems when
I point out that impurities in transistor silicon have to
be below one part in 100 million. That's equivalent to
one pound of impurities distributed through a train of
ore cars twenty miles long!
