M' Gymnasts to Host Minnesota

*IECEAS flD'

Wolverines Seek to Extend Streak;
Loken Rates Gophers Equal to Illini

By JOHN LaSAGE
The University of Michigan
gymnastics team will be after its
fourth consecutive dual meet vic-
tory when it takes on Minnesota's
Golden Gophers in the I-M Build-
ing this afternoon at 4:15 p.m.

Coach Newt Loken will send his
squad against his former alma
mater, hoping the Wolverines will
be able to duplicate their feats of
last week when they handed losses
to Illinois and Indiana.

BAXTER CONTEMPT TRIAL

rj

The Contempt of Congress trial of Bolza Baxter, Michigan
State Chairman of the Labor Youth League begins February 2
In Detroit. This trial stems from Mr. Baxter's refusal on consti-
tutional grounds to produce the records of the Labor Youth
League before the Clardy Sub-Committee. Financial help is
needed in this case which if won will be an important victory
for civil liberties in Michigan.
Contributions can be sent to: Mr. Bolza Baxter, 5077
Holcomb, Detroit, Michigan.

The Gopher team is loaded to
the hilt, and Coach Loken rates
them just as strong as the defend-
ing Big Ten champion Illinois out-
fit. The Wolverines took the
measure of Illinois last weekend
by a slim 57-55 count, giving the
Ann Arborites their first dual vic-
tory over the Illini in Michigan
gymnastics history.
Minnesota Powerful
Minnesota's power is evidenced
by a 91-21 win over Northwestern
and a 77-31 conquest of Wisconsin.
Top performers for the visitors are
Ron Solon and William Frantzich,
both of whom finished in the top
six in the free exercise event, in
the Big Ten meet last year.
Adding to his laurels, Solon cop-
ped a fourth place finish in the
flying rings at the North-South
Meet at Sarasota during the
Christmas holidays.
"I'd rate this team just as strong
as Illinois," commented Coach
Loken. "Their strong events are
the side horse, free exercise event,
and tumbling. We appear stronger
in the trampoline contest."
"Out to Equal"
"We'll be out to equal them in
their strong events and to beat
them in our strong events. With
this strategy in mind we can take
the meet. The team that com-
pletes its routines without a slip-
up will be the victors. One miscue
in any event can decide the meet.
That's how close it is."
The free exercise should provide
a tight contest between Solon, the
Gopher captain, and Michigan's
Ed Gagnier. Solon will have a lot
of support from teammate Frant-
zich.
Charlie Bates is again expected
to handle the majority of the
trampoline duties, while the side
horse should provide another real
thriller.
1-2-3 Punch
Lloyd Olson, William Murray,
and Don Erickson give the guests
a great 1-2-3 punch in this event.
The Wolverines, however, have also
done quite well in this event so
far.
Captain Chico San Antonio,
Wayne Warren, Bob Armstrong,
and Gagnier have all given good
accounts of themselves on "the
horse."
A win for the Wolverines will
definitely send them into the Big
Ten as one of the favorites.

GRANT SCRUGGS

==

By JOHNSON WOODS
Grant Scruggs said " love to
run," and running to him is a
strong motivating force.
This driving force is illustrated
in his desire to work. Track team-
mate Bob Brown commented that
Scruggs and Captain Ron Walling-
ford are undoubtedly the tvo
hardest workers on the squad.
Scruggs, during the training sea-
son, which is usually three to four
months in duration, trains three
hours a day seven days a week,
constantly working to obtain bet-
ter and better performances.
Helps Others
Not only does he work to improve
his own running and times but he
is always willing to spend time
helping other teammates who don't
have his experience.
This attitude for work com-
bined with the natural abilities
which he possesses in quantity and
a determination to win has made
him one of the country's foremost
middle distance men in collegiate
competition.
During most of his career at
Michigan Scruggs has spent the
majority of his time in the relays,
events which call for teamwork'
and team spirit. Usually he was
stationed as anchor man, which is
the clutch position in the relays.
He helped set a national collegi-

ate 880-yard relay record against
Michigan State in 1954. He holds
the Field House and Varsity record
in the 600- and 440-yard runs.
Last summer Scruggs went to
Europe and represented the United
States in the Spanish World Uni-
versity Student Games in San
Sebastian, Spain. In these games
he set records in the 200 and 400
meter runs and received personally
from Generalissimo Franco gold
medals signifying his victories.
Just last week Scruggs, in a
great performance at Boston, out-
ran Lou Jones, world record holder
of the 400 meters.
In February Scruggs will run his
last meet for Michigan, rounding
out a fine career which covered
almost four years. His short term
ambition is to make the Olympic
team. Shortly after graduation he
plans to go to California to train
for the Olympic trials which take
place in June.
He will try for the 400 meters.
Incidentally if the four men who
could participate in the Olympic
were chosen on comparative times
of last year, Grant Scruggs would
be one of them.
Scruggs' home town is Cleveland
and he went to East High School,
the school which also spawned
Jesse Owens and Harrison Dillard.
He chose Michigan because of its
high academic standing and fine
coaching staff.
A better than average student,
Scruggs is majoring in psychology
but at the present time is unde-
cided about what field he will
enter. He plays the violin for
relaxation and enjoys music of all
kinds.
