To Edge Wolverines in B

By JOHN HILLYER
Michigan State thought it had
the Conference swimming crown
locked up last Friday night with
seven events completed - and the
Spartans were so right.
At the time, they held an eight-

YOUNG MAN
wanted to work
at
WILD'S

point advantage over Michigan,
and it held up to the end on Sat-
urday as they trimmed the game
Wolverines, 87-79.
Coach Gus Stager said he was
pleased with the team's perform-
ance, especially on Saturday, a
night which saw several "best"
performances by his men.
NCAA Comes Next
There is no doubt that State's
depth was its main asset. The
NCAA Championshisp on March
28-29-30 at Chapel Hill, N.C.,
should find Michigan making a
much stronger showing.
The national competition will
be preceded by an exhibition with
the Indianapolis Athletic Club on
March 23 here.
Things started happening fast
for the Spartans. On Friday aft-
ernoon, they began competition

ig Ten Meet
by placing four men in the finals*
of the 200-yd. butterfly event, and
this seemed to provide a real buoyj
for their morale.
For the rest of the afternoon,
they failed to get % finalist in only
one event, the cne-meter diving,
placing three in the 50-yd. free-
style, two. in the 200-yd. individual
medley, and one each in the 200-
yd. backstroke. 220-yd. freestyle
and 100-yd. breaststroke.
'M' Holds Edge
Their relay team came through
with flying colors, too, and this
brought them 14 points alone.
Michigan has won 16 Confer-
ence swimming titles, and leads
in this * department. Ohio State,
which failed to be tops for the
first time since Michigan won in
1948, has 12.
Until this year, no one except'
the Wolverines and Buckeyes had
won the cnampionship s ce 1930.
Spring is in the air
so is your need for a

PINNING HOLD-Wolverine wrestling captain Mike Rodriguez

afternoon as he throws a telling pinning hold on Ron Baker of
Minnesota. He pinned Baker in 2:07 of the first period, and was
elected outstanding wrestler of the tournament.

Illini Gymnasts Down
Strong 'M' Title Surge

GUS STAGER
... pleased with team I

By A LJONES
The Michigan gymnastics team
was a fourth place club on paper
before the Big Ten meet last
weekend, but they emerged as the
"almost" team before Saturday
afternoon was over.
Outpointing Michigan State
and Iowa, teams they had fallen
to during the regular season by a
terrific margin, .the Wolverines
gave Illinois the closest scare they
have experienced in the past few
years.
Abie Grossfeld, the Illinois
Olympian who was outstanding
Saturday, confided to Wolverine
Coach Newt Loken and Ed Gag-
nier, the top Michigan gymnast,
that Illini Coach Charles Pond
had told his men that they would
have to get out there and work
their hardest if they wanted to
gain their eighth straight cham-
pionship.
Slight Edge
Illinois had only a slight edge
after Friday. The score from the
All-around event was knotted at
20-20 for the two squads, and Illi-
nois had a 19-17 edge in men qua-
lified for the finals. The differ-
ence in the meet came in the
great depth that Illinois pos-
sesses.
The men from Champaign were
able to place Grossfeld and Don
Tonry high in almost every event,
besides having tumblers like
Frank Hailand and Mike Karon,
who added valuable points in the
last event, making the Illini mar-
gin 1431/2 to 111/2 for Michigan.
Gagnier was the outstanding

Wolverine, with two first places
as has been the case in every meet
both this season and last, and he
shared most of the meet honors
with Illinois' Grossfeld, and
Iowa's Sam Bailie. Although these
three took all but two of the firsts,
the whole fieldtwas much strong-
er than usual this year.
Two other Michigan men
showed themselves off as top Big
Ten gymnasts, as they held their
own in the rugged competition.
Both sophomores, Ed Cole and
Jim Hayslett will have plenty of
chance in the future to gain more
honors.
Cole is the new Big Ten tram-
poline champion, While Hayslett
battled for honors in five of the
seven events, and earned himself
a third in the parallel bars, plus a
valuable fifth in the all-around.
End Careers
Three Wolverine seniors ended
their career as gymnasts, all turn-
ing in fine performances. Co-cap-
tatins Nick Wiese and Wayne
Warren were outstanding in all of
their events, with Wiese gaining
a fourth place tie in the flying
rings.
Bob Armstrong, a side horse
man, also ended his tenure as a
Wolverine. He qualified fifth in
that event Friday with a fine rou-
tine, but fell to ninth in the finals.
Some of the Michigan men will
be accompanying Loken to Anna-
polis in two weeks to take a try
at NCAA honors. If Gagnier and
Cole are in their best form they
should bring home a few more
championships.

EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITIES
IN PAPER INDUSTRY

By DAVE LYON
Team depth enabled Minne-
sota's wrestling squad to edge
Michigan by one point, 55-54, and
win its first Big Ten mat title in
16 years last Friday and Saturday
at Columbus.

USED BOOKS -

Only one Gopher grappler cap-
tured a Conference weight crown,
but Minnesota scored meet points
in six of the eight weight divisions
to offset the outstanding efforts
of Wolverine champions Max
Pearson at 130 pounds, and Mike
Rodriguez at 157.
Under the Conference scoring
system of 10 points for first, sev-
en for second, four for third, and
two for fourth in each weight,
Minnesota outscored Michigan,
21-7, in runnerup points.
This margin proved just enough
to offset the Wolverines' 20-10
first place and 19-16 miscellane-
ous point advantages. The two
teams tied, 8-8, in third and
fourth place meet points.
On the basis of r e l a t i v e
strengths of the Big Ten matmen
during dual meet competition, the
Conference meet was not sup-
posed to develop into the two-
team race it turned out to be.
Besides Michigan and Minne-
sota, three squads - Michigan
State, Illinois and Iowa - were

rated title contenders. Although
they won their share of weight di-
vision championships, Iowa and
Illinois lacked the third and
fourth place points needed to win,
finishing with 39 and 37 points
respectively.
One of the majior disappoint-
ments of the weekend's activity
at Ohio State's St. John Arena
was Michigan State's weak show-
ing.

Word arrived in the Michigan
hockey camp yesterday that the
Eastern representatives in the
NCAA tournament at Colorado
Springs, Colo., this week will be
Clarkson College and Harvard.
The selection of these teams
completes the four team slate for
the playoffs, which will begin

Thursday night. Besides Michi-
gan, the other western represen-
tative is Colorado College, cham-
pions of the Western Intercolle-
giate Hockey League this season.
Pairings for the first round of
play will be made by a draw to be
held today.
Clarkson College, located in
Potsdam, N.Y., was the cream of

the Tri-State League this year
and compiled an overall season's
record of 18 wins and one loss. In
fact, Coach Bill Harrison' s
Knights have lost only five games
in their last 65 over a three year
span.
Clarkson's offense, which has
been averaging better than six
goals a game, is led by Eddie
Rowe, one of the top collegians in
the East. The Knight's defense
has held the opposition to only
two goals a game.
High Scorer
Should they meet Harvard, the
Wolverines would come up against
the top scorer in the East, Bob
Cleary. The Crimson star is the
only college player to better 30
goals this season and has more
than 70 total points.
Meanwhile Coach Vic Heyliger
put his Wolverines through a
light workout at the Coliseum yes-
terday afternoon. The team will
work out again this afternoon and
will fly by chartered plane to Col-
orado Springs tomorrow.
Heyliger expressed satisfaction
with the team's performance
against Michigan Tech over the
weekend, noting especially the 12
goals scored upon the Huskie's
Bob McManus, one of the league's
better goalies.
