Hanley took firsts in the 220-

then came back to win the gruel-

The unbeaten Hopkins, who has
set at least one record in every

the 200-yd. breaststroke. Hop-

Michigan swimming coach Gus

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. OP) --
About 200 people attended funeral
services yesterday for George Ed-
kin Little, executive secretary of
the National Football Hall of
Little coached at the University
of Michigan in 1924.
His team finished the season
with a 6-2 record. However, his
two losses will be remembered
longer than his winning record.
The two losses were to Illinois
and Red Grange, 39-14, and to

knotted in the first spot.
The Wolverines already hold a
win over MSU, that also a one-
pointer, but gained without the
advantage of the home floor which
will be Michigan's on Monday
But a lot can happen before
then, for the $oosiers will be the
guests of Michigan State on Sat-
urday night, and it should pro-
vide more of a clue as to the sig-
nificance of the game on Monday.
Also on Saturday the Wolver-
ines try to end their road game

If Michigan State wins, it would
mean that the Maize and Blue
could have the satisfaction, at best,
of knocking the Spartans into a
first-place tie on Monday.
But if"State loses, a Michigan
victory on Monday would utterly

Chalmers "Bump" Elliott was in
Ann Arbor yesterday.
Michigan's new backfield coach
flew in from Iowa City to talk
football with Bennie Oosterbaan
and the staff.
The former Wolverine star had
a double purpose for his visit. "I'll

hours of house hunting between

Elliott did not comment on the
nature of these conferences.

Boost Gymnastics Squad's Title Chances

is back on the winning side of the
Last week the Wolverines were
looking back on three losses in the
past fotur meets, but following Fri-
day and Saturday's action at Navy
Pier and Northwestern, coach
Newt Loken's boys are now riding
the crest of a two-meet victory
Friday night they overwhelned
Illinois of Navy Pier, 73-38, and
the next afternoon they downed
the Wildcats, 63-42. Although
neither of these teams are among
the top-notch gymnastics units of
the midwest, the victories gave
Michigan revenge for two close
defeats by Iowa and Michigan
State the preceding weekend.
This puts the Wolverines at
much better than a .500 average,
having won five and lost three,
and sends them toward their final
opponent, Ohio State here Satur-
day, with an air of victory.
Loken gave all of his performers,
praise, but especially commented
on the work of the high bar and
parallel bar men. Of course, Ed
Gagnier is the top man in both of
these events, however, the other
Wolverines performed so well that
Gagnier, reigning Big Ten champ
in the parallel bars, placed second
to teammate Jim Hayslett in that
event on Friday.
Gagnier also won the free exer-
cise and side horse both nights,
and added a first in the tumbling

on the fact that at both of theI
meets the tumbling event was run

have each of the contestants go

next one competes, each competi-
tor went throagh one series, then
waited for the other five to com-
