Championship Fight Postponed
NEW YORK (P) -- The Ray
Robinson-Gene Fullmer middle-
weight championship fight sched-
uled for Dec. 12 at Madison
Square Garden was postponed
yesterday until Jan. 2.
Robinson was reported suffer-
ing from a severe cold.

Burton, Lee
Excel in 'NI'
Cagers' Win
Michigan's first basketball
game brought out two bright
spots, but with these came the
usual early season rough edges.
The play of George Lee and M.C.
Burton was certainly encourag-
ing. The two sophomores showed
great promise on the freshman
team, and last Saturday's perfor-
mance lends substance to their
early showing.
Lee's switch to guard at the be-
ginning of the season was a cal-
culated risk on the part of Coach
Bill Perigo: He wanted speed and
height on his back line, and Lee
had shown these attributes at his
forward slot.
The big problem was, could the
6'3" 205 pounder play where he
had never played before? His per-
formance against Delaware hasn't
answered anything definitely, of
course, but it has changed Perigo's
thinking.
Just before Thanksgiving vaca-
tion the Wolverine coach said "I
don't think he (Lee) feels com-
I-M Swimming
Williams 34, Huber 23
Gomberg 36, Adams 21
Taylor 32, Strauss
Reeves 29, Anderson 28
fortable out there yet, and to tell
you the truth, I don't either." Yes-
erday Perigo said that he felt Lee
was coming along wonderfully.
On the darker side was a gener-
al first game shakiness which re-
sulted in missed passes, muffed
shots, and a terrible night at the
free throw line-
Also to be mentioned was the
premature appearance of Ron
Kramer. Perigo felt he had kept
Kramer in the game too long for'
only having practiced a week.

FOURTH IN MIDWEST OPEN:
Gymnasts Show Strength in Opener
it -- -- - --

By AL JONES
Michigan's gymnastics coach
Newt Loken had good reason to
be pleased wtih his team's week-
end performance in the Midwest
Open.
The Wolverines finished fourth
in a strong field of 17 teams, and
was third among the Big Ten gym-
nasts, as Florida State stole a
high third-place finish with a
talented three-man team.
Loken had had little idea of his
team's power before the meet, and
had expected that at least Illinois
and Michigan State, and probably
Iowa, would finish ahead of the
Wolverines. Both the Illini, a real
powerhouse in gymnastics, who
placed first, and the Hawkeyes,
who placed second, lived up to this
prediction, but Loken's squad fin-

Honors 1M'
Approximately 600 people turned
out to honor the 1956 Michigan
football team at the 36th Annual
Football Bust at the Sheraton-
Cadillac Hotel in Detroit last
night.
Head coach Benny Oosterbaan,
University President Harlan Hat-
cher and Athletic Director H. O.
"Fritz" Crisler were the main
speakers. The University of Mich-
igan Club of Detroit presented
"M" rings to the graduating sen-
iors.
Oosterbaan, in introducing each
player suggested that Ron Kra-
mer's number (87) be retired.

We Are Pleased
to announce that

ished ahead of the fifth-place
Spartans.
If this is any indication of the
coming Big Ten season, the Mich-
igan squad can look to a pleasant
future. They placed third among
the Conference schools without
the services of their most talented
performer and two other possible
point-getters.
Ed Gagnier, last year's sensa-
tion, is presently in Australia at
the Olympics, whild two good
trampoline men, Dick Kimball
and Frank Newman were unable
to participte, had these three
men have been in the Midwest
Open, Loken feels Michigan would
have had a good chance to upset
Iowa and Illinois.
Outstanding performances came
from Co-Captains Wayne Warren

and Nick Wiese and sophomores
Jim Hayslett and Ed Cole. One of
the most outstanding shows of
Michigan power was the fact that
Warren and Hayslett finished
fourth and fifth in a field of 84
contestants in the parallel bars.
Meanwhile, Cole was only two
points away from first place in
his fifth place on the trampoline.
