mark of 2:22.7 set in the afternoon
by Barry Yap of Indiana.
Jecko set a new meet record in
the 100-yd. butterfly by beating
Indian's Olympian Dick Tanabe by
one second in :54.6.
The sensational Yale sophomore
became the first triple winner in
the National Collegiate Swimming
Championships since 1951 with his
record smashing butterfly win.
Jecko previously won the 200-
yd. butterfly and the 200-yd. in-
dividual medley.
Hanley Disqualified
Michigan's chances of winning
a championship had been consid-
erably dimmed early in the even-
ing when Hanley was disqualified
in the 100-yd. freestyle after fin-
ishing second. Officials ruled that
Hanley had failed to make a legal
touch of the end of the pool at
the 50-yard turn, which cost
Michigan five points in the team
Fritz Myers probably gave his
best showing since joining the
Wolverine varsity three years ago.
In addition to the 1500 meter
crown which he captured Thurs-
day night, the Michigan senior
finished fourth in both the indi-
vidual medley, Friday and the 440
last night.
He just missed finishing second
in the quarter mile losing out in
a photo finish.
Sophomore Dick Kimball was
the only Wolverine double mdi-
vidual winner. He scored triumphs
in both the low and high diving
events. Kimball, the class of the
field, scored 441.35 points, in yes-
terday's action.
Don Adamski gave Michigan a
fifth place finish in the 100-yd.

Bernie (Boom Boom) Geoffrion
pulled the three-goal "hat trick"
tonight to lead the hard-charging
Canadiens to an 8-3 victory over
the New York Rangers and a 2-1
lead in their best-of-seven Stanley
Cup semifinal playoff series.
The Canadiens' stellar forward,
Bert Olmstead, tied a record for
assists in a National Hockey
League playoff game with five.
The game was a runaway for
the Canadiens as they maintained
their superiority over the Rangers
at home. The defending Stanley
Cup champions lost only one game
to New York on Forum ice this
New York was unable to match
the triple scoring prongs of Geof-
frion, Jean Beliveau and Dickie
Moore. Both of Geoffrion's team-
mates contributed a pair of goals
to the Montreal total. Maurice Ri-
chard picked up the other tally.
Meanwhile, New York could
only sustain a strong drive while
Andy Bathgate, who pushed in
two goals, was on the ice.

BOSTON (;) - The revived De-
troit Red Wings aren't worried
about Boston's home ice "advan-
tage" for their third meeting to-
night in. the National Hockey
League Stanley Cup semifinal
playoff series.
The Wings, NHL champions,
figure that if the hustling Bruins
would win one of two in Detroit,
they can do the same here.
In addition, they feel they have
the momentum after Thursday's
7-2 victory over Boston. The
Bruins had taken the opener 3-1.
In their last home workout, the
Wings sent their great wingers --
Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay -
through an intensive drill to get
their passing razor-sharp.
Detroit is in better physical
shape than the Bruins. The only
casualties are Marty Pavelich with
a sore toe and goalie Glenn Hall
with a stiff upper lip following 18
stitches he received as a result of
meeting Johnny Pierson's stick
in the second game.
