Michigan's Western Swing

By SI COLEMAN
Michigan's hockey team opens
its quest to retain the Western In-
tercollegiate Hockey League title
tonight as they tangle with Colo-
rado College In Colorado Springs.
The game is the first of a four
game WIHL schedule to be played
on the road by the Wolverines this
week. They take on Colorado -Col-

then move on to Denver for games

Hopes to Clear Hutton
Hutton, who plays on the first
line with Tom Rendall and Don
McIntosh, sat out Saturday night's
game with McGill because of the
matter. Coach Vic Heyliger hopes
to have txie situation cleared up by
game time tonight.
The question as to Hutton's elig-
ibility stems from a league ruling

eligibility a player has in- respect
to the years he has played organ-
ized hockey out of the United

He indicated that the team can-
not afford to play the sloppy brand
of hockey they exhibited in the
first two periods if they expect to
do well in league play.

'Wolverine Gymnasts in Four Team
Battle for Conference Title'-Loren
By AL JONES
Four teams will be in the thick
of battle for the 1957 Big Ten,
gymnastics championship -- and
Michigan will be one of them.
Besides the Wolverines, Illinois,
Iowa and Michigan State have
top-flight squads this season,
while the remaining six teams are
not of a caliber to bother any of
This is the way that Michigan's
coach Newt Loken views the 1957
His judgement is based on the
performance of the Big Ten teams
at the Midwest Open meet in Chi-
cago, Dec. 1, when the Wolverines
placed fourth behind Illinois, Iowa
and Florida State, with Michigan
State taking fifth.
Michigan was way behind the
Illini and Hawkeyes in point-total,
but was participating without'
three key men.
Ed Gagnier, a brilliant gymnast
who scored more than half of
Michigan's dual-meet points last
season as a sophomore, was absent
from the Midwest Open because
of Olympic competition in Mel-
bourne, Australia. He is back from
the Olympics now, but won't com-
pete for the Wolverines until next
Two other men missing compe-
tition at the Midwest Open were
trampolinists Dick Kimball and
Frank Newman. Kimball was busy

'M' Would Have Been Better
If these three men could have
competed, Laken felt that Michi-1
gan would have a good chance of
upsetting Illinois or Iowa. Certain-
ly they would have placed well
ahead of Florida State.
Wolverine points were earned in
the Midwest Open by four top
competitors, co-captains Wayne
Warren and Nick Wiese; and soph-
omores Jim Hayslett and Ed Cole.
Bars, Horse and Rings
Warren's top events are the
parallel bars and side horse, while
Wiese enjoys the rings, and is ver-
satile enough to compete in the
all-around event. Hayslett has
shown well in the free exercise,
parallel bars, and took a very
fine fifth place in the Midwest
Open all-around competition --
against the top competition in the
country. Cole is a trampoline man,
and has made great progress this
year, as exhibited by his fifth in
the Midwest Open.
Loken hopes that he has that
depth in a large group of sopho-
mores that are making bids for
varsity competition. Besides Hays-
lett and Cole, new members of the
team this winter include Newman,
Phil Noggle, and Chuck Clarkson.

The only senior other than the
captains is Bob Armstrong, while
juniors include Kimball and Gag-

what he called "a disastrous trend

of the Detroit Lions.
His action stemmed from an in-

claims the game has "gotten far
out of hand because of deliberate
and flagrant infractions."
