'M' Gymnasts To Meet



This is the big day for coach
Newt Loken and his Wolverine
gymnasts. .
Tonight it will be their privilege
to play host to the reigning Big
Ten and NCAA Gymnastics
nChamps, the thus far unbeaten 11-
lini. The meet. will take place at
the Sports Building at 8 p.m. to-
night. I-D cards will provide ad-
mission for all students.
Illinois has held the Big .Ten
championship for the past seven
seasons, and added the national
title last winter.
Nevertheless, the Wolverines
don't have the usual dread of the
4 fighting Illini. Actually, it is
Michigan which has the recordto
defend. Last winter when the two
* squads met, it was Michigan who
emerged victorious, with a 57-55
Since that time Michigan has
built up an 11-straight winning
streak, going. undefeated in dual-
meet competition. During this span
Loken's boys placed second to the
revenge-hungry Illinois team in
the 1956 Conference Meet.
Look for 12th Win
Therefore, one might well con-
sider tonight's meet as a grudge
battle for both teams. lyichigan
is hoping for a 12th straight dual-
meet victory, Illinois is seeking
revenge for their only blemish
during the 1955-56 season, and
both squads are undefeated this
year, and striving for a perfect
This meet might take on the

aspects of a two-man battle. Both
teams boast a fine Olympic gym-
nast on their rosters. The Wol-
verine, of course, is the Canadian
standout Ed Gagnier. This will be
Gagnier's first meet this season
for Michigan, since his trip to Mel-
bourne kept him out of school
last semester.
The Illinois gymnast who Gag-
vier last saw in Australia is soph-
omore Abbie Grossfield. The two
will meet tonight in the high bars,
Sparallel bars, and- free exercise
Top Illini
Other top Illini are Don Tonry,
Big Ten and NCAA all-around
champion, and tumblers Frank
Hailan and Mike Karon. Wolver-
ne sophomore Jim Hayslett, a
sparkling performer so far this
year, will be called on for the dif-
ficult task of opposing Tonry in
the all-around event.
Looming as a second challenge;
is pa 4 p.m. meet with Indiana to-
morrow afternoon. Exhausted as
the Wolverines may be after Il-
linois, they will have to be on
their toes again. Indiana is no
pushover in Big Ten gym circles,
having defeated Northwestern and
Minnesota in much the same man-
ner as Michigan did.
The Wolverines are all in top
shape according to Loken, except
for the two co-captains. Nick
Wiese is bothered by a heel bruise,
while Wayne Warren is still suf-
fering a back ailment. However,
they will both be in action this

Only Dietzgen Slide Rules
have these great features
Professional engineers say Dietzgen's new slide
rules embody the greatest advances in design in
more than a quarter century. Dietzgen's exclu-
sive Micromatic Adjustment permits perfect
alignment of the scales at all times. Simple re-
setting of one screw does it. The end plates need
not be loosened;. fit and action of the slide is
never disturbed.
Dietzgen's automatic slide tension insures per-
fect slide actiorn wherever and whenever these
rules are used. Slides cannot bind or stick-nor
become loose so errors may result from acci-
dental slide movement. These are truly great
slide rules. Important new scales added. New
super-safe carrying case. See them at your Dietz-
