Special to The Daily
IOWA CITY - Michigan's bas-
ketball team finally overcame its
road trip depression, snapping out
of the rut to edge past Iowa,
83-79, in a closely fought contest
here last night.
Not since Jan. 7, when the Wol-
verines defeated now-league-lead-
ing Michigan State at East Lans-
ing, has Michigan been able to
win away from Yost Fieldhouse.
State now tops the Big Ten by
virtue of an overwhelming vic-
tory over Indiana. Below them
come the Hoosiers and Ohio State
in a tie for second, Minnesota in
fourth place, and Michigan shares
fifth with Illinois and Purdue
Last night's contest was nip-
and-tuck all the way, being de-
cided by four foul shots in the last
24 seconds. With the score tied
at 79-79, Ron Kramer was fouled,
and flipped in the first of his one-
and-one chances to provide the

winning margin as Iowa was un-
able to score after this.
M. C. Burton's rebounding was
the factor which kept the ball
out of Iowa's basket in the re-
maining seconds. After Kramer
had taken another turn at the
foul lane to make the score 81-79,
Iowa brought the ball down deter-
mined to score but shot inac-
curately.
Burton went up and dragged
down the rebound, getting fouled
in the process. He made both
charity shots to sew up the con-
test.

sharpshooting at the right times
did a lot towards moving Michi-
gan to victory. Midway in the sec-
ond half Iowa's scrappy guard,
Augie Martel got extremely hot
dumping in several field goals in
a row. Burton however traded him
basket for basket.
Late in the game Kramer left
briefly with four fouls. Loss of
Kramer in the past has usually
meant a loss of the Wolverine
driving force. Tillotson however,
took up the reins and sank four
straight set shots to keep Michi-
gan strongly in the contest until
Kramer's return.
Fouling was Iowa's downfall.
The Hawkeye's committed enough
infractions for the Wolverines to
take 37 free throws. Also three,
key Iowa players fouled out in the
late minutes, starters Jim McCon-
nell and Americus John-Lewis,
and substitute Clearence Word-
law, who had contributed 14
points to the Iowa cause.

FLYING ALONG - Wolverine swimmer Fritz Myers nears the end of the pool during a lap of butter-
fly breaststroke in the 200-yd. individual medley. In this race each swimmer does two laps each of
backstroke, butterfly breaststroke, orthodox breaststroke, and free style. Myers finished third, behind
two of the top men in this event in the nation, Al Wiggins of Ohio State who was first, and Wolver-
ine Cy Hopkins.

ever, was the neck and neck bat-
tle for third place between Fries
and OSU's Joe Henry. Fries nosed
him out at the wire.
The 50-yard freestyle, supposed-
ly Michigan's weakest event, was
captured by Mehl. He won by a
hair over Bob Connell of Ohio
State.
Perhaps the most surprising
event was diving. Ohio State car-
ried with them two Olympic div-
ers. Don Harper was runnerup in
the Games and Glen Whitten fin-
ished fourth at Melbourne. Harp-
er proved his superiority by fin-
ishing far ahead of the field. But
Dick Kimball and Michigan's cap-
tain, John Narcy, performed bril-
liantly to gain a second and third
for the Maize and Blue, nosing out
Whitten
From this point on in the
meet, it became more and more
evident that Michigan was never
to be headed.
Only one bright spot appeared
for OSU all afternoon. He was Al
Wiggins, great Olympic perform-
er who entered both the 200-yard
individual medley and the 200-
yard backstroke and captured first
place in both of tl' m, setting a
new pool record each time.
Another surprise cameBin the
200-yard breaststroke. Big Ten
champ, Van Leer Hoffman was
pitted against the Wolverines'
Hopkins. But Hopkins led all the
way and Hoffman fell back con-
tinuously and finished last.

With the most desired victory of
the season under its belt, Michi-
gan now looks forward to the Big
Tei Meet which figures to be a
battle between OSU, MSU and the
Wolverines, with Indiana rated a
darkhorse.

EAST LANSING (A)-Michigan
State whipped Indiana 76-61 here
last night to continue the rocket-
like climb of the surprising Spar-
tans from the cellar to undisputed
lead ingthe Big Ten basketball
The 10-3 Spartan record -- 10
wins in a row after three early
season defeats-assures Michigan'
State a bid as a conference repre-'
sentative in the NCAA tourney,
and at least a tie for the confer-
ence championship.

A shot-throttling defense plus
balanced scoring made the Spar-
tans look like potential champions.
High men for State included Jack
Quiggle with 23 points, Larry Hed-
den with 22, John Green with 13
and George Ferguson with 12.
Archie Dees did some spectacu-
lar scoring for Indiana with the
evening's high of 28 points but
couldn't pull the Hoosiers through
alone. Hallie Bryant with 16 points

PETE TILLOTSON

By DON DRESCHER
Varsity athletes lead pretty busy
lives at Michigan.
Such is the case of Pete Tillot-
son, who has turned in a fine job
at the pivot and forward positions
for the Wolverine cagers this sea-
son.
A good part of an athlete's time
is spent in practice, and just like
any other student, he has to
spend time studying.
Tillotson not only finds time to
study, but also takes part in cam-
pus activities. At the present time,
he is petitioning for President of
Business Administration School.
Serious Student
A junior, Tillotson is a serious
student. He frankly admits that
basketball has detracted from his
studies to a certain extent; how-
ever, he still manages to maintain
a very respectable grade point
average.
After completion of his business
curriculum, Tillotson hopes either
to go on to law school or perhaps
continue graduate work in busi-
ness administration.
When he can get time, Tillotson
enjoys reading very much. He is
also a music fan and enjoys both
classical and jazz. Tillotson tries
not to miss any concerts held on
campus and he also likes to go to
campus dances when he can.
son piled up an impressive record.
Tillotson takes a lot of ribbing
because of his flair for clothes
toward which most of the earn-
ings from his job as a busboy go.
Impressive Record

All-State cage squad in both 1953
and 1954 and the Ludington High
team for which he was pivot man
was state class "B" champions in
'53 and runner-up in '54.
He was a nine letter man in
secondary school, picking up mon-
ograms in football and track as
well as basketball.
Because , ~ the extended length
of the basketball season, he is not
able to get back home too often,
usually only three times a year.
However, after the season ends he
plans to head home for a week-
end to celebrate his 21st birth-
day this month.
Enjoys Tourist Season
In the summertime, Tillotson
likes to stay around home enjoy-
ing the Ludington tourist season,
relaxing, catching up on his read-
ing, and playing golf, shooting
somewhere in the middle-80s.
Tillotson's father will view the
game tomorrow night with mixed
emotions. The senior Tillotson is
a graduate of Michigan State Col-
lege. where he played football and
track and MSU will bring - with
them the same trainer that worked
with Mr. Tillotson when he was
at State.

BATON ROUGE, Fla. (M) -
Jaunty Jimmy Demaret dropped a
tricky 40-foot putt on the 18th
hole today to jump into a two-
stroke lead in the Baton Rouge
Open golf tournament.
He shot one-under-par 35 on
both nines for a 70 and a 207 to-
tal after 54 holes.
The other second round leaders
dropped back as Peter Thompson
of Melbourne, Australia, shot into
contention with a five under par
67 and 209 total.
Bill Nary of Wayne, Mich., lead-
er after the second round, sky-
rocketed seven strokes over yes-
terday's score to a 74, falling into
a tree-way tie for third at 210.
