Special to The Daily

BLOOMINGTON, Ind.-Sparked
by the sensational performance of
two sophomores, Cy Hopkins and
Dick Hanley. the Michigan swim-
ming team yesterday, preserved its
undefeated record by downing
powerful Indiana, 55-50.
The natators face their second
big test in three days, when they
meet one of the top swimming
squads in the Conference, Michi-
gan State, at East Lansing to-
morrow.
Hopkins Set Mark
Hopkins, who is the hottest
Michigan swimmer in recent
weeks, churned the 200-yard but-
terfly in a record-breaking time
of 2:12.5. This broke the existing
NCAA mark set in' 1952 by John
Davies of Michigan and tied the
American mark held by Dick Nel-
son.
Although Hopkins was more
than two seconds faster than the
Big Ten record time of 2:15, held

CY HOPKINS
... record breaker

petitor he is, was not to be out-
done. He finally caught the fleet
Hanley in the homestretch and
the race ended in a tie.
The time for the event was
2:03.8. Only former Wolverine
great, Jack Wardrop,' has done
better. He swam the 220 in 2:03.4
in the 1955 Big Ten Meet to hold
the existing world mark.
Hanley was also a double win-
ner in the meet. He took a first in
the 100-yd. freestyle.
While the sophomore duo of
Hanley and Hopkins captured the
attention of the crowd, the en-
tire Michigan squad performed
exceptionally well, according to
Coach Gus Stager.
Dick Mehl, another Wolverine
sophomore repeated his fine per-
formance against Iowa in the 50-
yard freestyle, with another vic-
tory in this event.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26

by last year's Michigan captain
Mike Delaney,nhis performance is
not a new Conference mark be-
cause it was not in the Big Ten
ineet.
The young sophomore has been
setting a new mark on the average
of once a week. In the last two
home meets, Hopkins set pool
marks in the 200 yard butterfly
and the 200 yard breaststroke.
With his performance yesterday,
he has now moved up to a posi-
tion as the leading contender for
the Big Ten title.
Hanley Ties Woolsey
Wolverine star Dick Hanley met
fellow Olympian Bill Woolsey in,
the 220-yard freestyle. Hanley,
realizing the tremendous abili-
ties of his opponent, flashed
through the first 100 yards in an
incredible 52 seconds.

THE FASTEST-GROWING
ALUMINUM PRODUCER

is

looking for men who want to grow

FOR YOUNG MEN who have ability and are anxious to
assume responsibilities, a career with Kaiser Aluminum
& Chemical Corporation offers an unusual opportunity.
Kaiser Aluminum is a young but stable corporation,
among the nation's largest producers of primary alu-
minum, with 23 plants and facilities in operation or
under construction.
Since entering the aluminum business 10 years ago,
Kaiser Aluminum has continually expanded its facili-
ties for making primary metal as well as fabricated
products.
Yet, to keep pace with the unlimited future markets
for aluminum, more expansion will be necessary. This
will require not only more physical plants but more

people who can step into management positions.
As a result, we are looking for exceptional young
men who want unlimited opportunities for advance-
ment and self-improvement.
As we expand, ambitious young men of ability at
Kaiser Aluminum will rapidly advance to responsible
positions in management, planning, production super-
vision, technical and sales supervision.
But our rapid expansion is only one of the reasons
why your opportunities are great at Kaiser Aluminum.

NEW YORK P)--The veteran
Herbie Flam cut down young Bar-
ry MacKay, Michigan senior from
Dayton, Ohio yesterday to ad-
vance to the final round of the
National Indoor Tennis Cham-
pionships.

MIGHTY
BIG TEN
VERSUS
THE
IVY LEAGUE
The Big Ten colleges were called
"educational rabbit warrens"-
among other things - in Holi-
day's famous article, The Natural
Superiority of the Ivy League.
Now, in March Holiday Maga-
zine, the brickbats are returned
with interest as Paul Engle, of
Iowa University, says "The Ivy
League has had the past; the Big
Ten will have the future."
Has Radcliffe "absorbed" Har-
vard? Will coeducation "save"
Yale? Is Eastern education "snob-
bish and outdated?" Is Columbia a
t"Sorbonne - on - the subway,"
and Cornell a "salt-lick in the wil-
derness"? Is the Big Ten the "mas-
sive wall to which that gracious
ivy clings"?
As for the Big Ten - does it
really produce more top-grade
music, art and poetry than all
other colleges put together? Is
Physics really stressed as much as
Advanced Ballroom Dancing? Is
coeducation really an advantage
- or do drum majorettes com-
mand more attention than assist-
ant professors? And just how big
is Big Ten football, anyway? Holi-
day has the answers in a vivid por-
trait illustrated with 15 colorful
photographs!
Don't miss this exciting and
controversial feature. Read "The
Mighty Big Ten" in March Holi-
day Magazine!

Flam, seeded third in the tour-
nament, gave a demonstration of
almost unbelievable steadiness to
crush MacKay who was riding a
string of sensational indoor vic-
tories. The score was 6-1, 6-4, 6-3.
MacKay and Grant Golden of
Wilmette, Ill., upset the top seeded
doubles team of Vic Seixas of
Philadelphia and Ulf Schmidt of
Sweden, 11-9, 6-0, 3-6, 6-3. They
go into the finals against Dick
Savitt and Bill Talbert.
In the singles play, Flam who
was left off the preliminary U.S.
Davis Cup squad although he is
the nation's second ranked player,
broke MacKay's confidence with
bristling service returns and
turned his own normally soft ser-
vice into a weapon of destruction.
He didn't drop a service and
only once allowed a game to go
deuce in only one game of his de-
livery - the fifth game of the
opening set. He lost only four
points on service in the entire
second and third sets.,

By PAUL BORMAN
Michigan's track team turned
what was supposed to be an ex-
tremely close meet into a rout
yesterday as it crushed Illinois,y
73-41, at Yost Fieldhouse.
The defending Big Ten Cham-
pions were spectacular against the7
highly-touted Illini in the action
which served as a warmup for the;
coming Big Ten meet at Columbus
next Friday and Saturday.
In routing the visitors, the Wol-
verines took eight firsts and tied+
for a ninth. Illinois garnered only
three undisputed firsts.
Pace Tops Mitchell
Topping the list as the most
exciting race was the 60 yard dash
which found Michigan's Jim Pace
running against Illinoi's Bobby
Mitchell.
The two gridiron halfbacks raced
neck and neck until the final three
strides when Pace edged ahead
for first place at an outstanding
time of :6.3.
Spotlighting the field events was
the tie for first place in the pole
vault between Michigan's sopho-
more sensation, 18 year old Mamon
Gibson and Jerry Stanners of Illi-
nois.
Gibson sparkled as he matched
the veteran jump for jump until
they both finally tied at 13'63/4".
This was Gibson's best jump and
places as fourth best in Michigan
history.
Captain Dave Owen won the
shot put with 55'9%". The burly
senior however only took one throw
and spent very little time warming
up. Undoubtedly he had his mind
on last night's AAU Meet in New
York and "saved himself" for it.
Illinois' Bob Dintelman was the
meets only double winner as he
took two of his team's firsts by
winning the one mile run and the
880 yard run or half mile.
His time for the mile runwas
4:15.2 edging second place Helmar
Dollwet of Michigan at 4:15.7.
Dintelman took honors in the half
mile with a 1:57.4.
Michigan never trailed i4 the
meet and everyone in Yost Field-

house was confident of a Wolverine
victory after a win in the 65 yard
high hurdles.
Coach Canham had just about
acknowledged the honors in the
hurdles to Illinois when the upset
came. Michigan's Jan Carlsson, in
the outside lane knocked over most
of the barriers and fell to the turf
at the finish line but won the race
and the five points with a time of
:8.6.
The two mile run boasted a very
exciting finish. Going into the final
lap of the 16 lap feature, two Illi-
nois runners, Karl Jonsson and
Frank Hedgcock were leading and
had bottled up Michigan's Helmar
Dollwet.
On the final lap Dollwet tried to
go inside but to no avail, so on the
backstretch he went outside and
passed both runners to go ahead
and win the race with a time of
9:23.7.
