MEET BADGERS FRIDAY:
Gymnasts To Open Big Ten Season
By AL JONES
The first two dual meets of
the season could well be the most
important for the Wolverine
Coach Newt Loken and his
charges open their 1957 Big Ten
schedule this Friday and Satur-
day at+ Wisconsin and Minnesota
respectively, when they will be the
guests of the Badgers and Goph-
ers in dual meets.
The Michigan gymnasts will be
guarding a perfect dual meet rec-
ord that they achieved last sea-
son, when they went undefeated
in single competition. This cam-
paign was highlighted by a one-
point victory over Illinois, thej

meet early in December of last'
year, one sees little reason for
Loken to fear the Minnesota and
Wisconsin meets this weekend.
Michigan placed fourth, behind
Illinois, Florida State and Iowa,
while their weekend opponents
were well down the line.
Only Top Men Score
Loken points out, however, that
in a meet of the proportions of
the Midwest Open, only the top
men score points. All of Michi-
gan's points were counted by co-
captains Nick Wiese and Wayne
Warren and sophomores Ed Cole
and Jim Hayslett.
On the otner hand, Loken em-
phasizes, in dual meet competi-
tion good team depth is necessary
for victory. This explains Michi-
gan's victory over Illinois last
year, and how the Illini could
turn around and completely dom-
inate the Conference meet, since
their top men were superior to
those of the other schools.
Loken rates the Minnesota andj
Wisconsin meets as contests of
' great cruciality to the preserva-
tion of the unbeaten string due
to the absence of Ed Gagnier
from competition until the sec-

Eight global bombers, powered by mighty turbojets, recently set non-
stop records in 16,000- to 17,000-mile flights described as a "routine
training mission to demonstrate the capability of the B-52 and the men
who fly it". Flying continuously for as long as 321 hours, the mammoth
aircraft - each powered by eight Pratt & Whitney Aircraft J-57 turbo-
jets--- winged northward from air bases in California and Maine, over
Thule, Greenland, continued to the North Pole, then returned by way
of Anchorage, Alaska, to land in San Francisco, Baltimore, or Lime-
During this spectacular top-of-the-world mission, temperatures as
low as 65 degrees below zero were encountered, speeds approached 700
miles per hour, altitudes in excess of 35,000 feet were maintained, and
each Boeing B-52 was refueled in mid-air several times. Powering the
