Michigan Teams Close Unusual Athletic Year
. Datily Sports Editor .

omplete Busy Year



A GREAT NIGHT-Michigan completed its highly successful
basketball season by downing Michigan State's Big Ten co-cham-

It has been an unusual athletic
Honors seemed to elude most of
Michigan's teams. Close but oft-
en not quite close enough was one'
of the Maize and Blue rewards
over the past full year of time.
And yet in many respects this
period of spring 1956 through
winter 1957 was overall one of
Michigan's strongest,
National Stars
Certainly it was a period for cer-
tain individuals to shine. On the
national scene the names of Ron
Kramer, Barry MacKay, and Dave
Owen were among the biggest in
intercolegiate athletics. During
this time, Michigan was also able
to win one national championship
in swimming and two Big Ten
Conference titles in outdoor track
and tennis.
The overall strength came in the
depth. Michigan earned runner-
up spots in the Western Confer-
ence in golf, football (tie), wrest-
ling, swimming, and gymnastics.
The Blue placed second not onlys
in the Western Inter-collegiate
Hockey League but also in the
NCAA playoffs. Baseball took a
fourth, as did indoor track, and
basketball again brought up the
rear with a tie for fifth.
Michigan's overall record in all
sports again placed it ahead of
all schools in the athletic-con-
scious Big Ten.
Strong Finish
Football this past fall brought
reason for optimism. Michigan
performed as expected with a 7-2
record. It didn't quite win the titlek
or get the Rose Bowl bid, as the
Wolverines had one bad day
against Minnesota, 20-7, on Home-
coming Day.
The following weekend the Blue
rebounded to beat champion Iowa.
The season ended with a satisfy-
ing routing of Ohio State, 19-0, to
place Michigan as possibly the
strongest Conference team at thet
Ron Kramer, one of Michigan'sZ
all-time versatile athletes, was ont
everybody's All-American team.
Tom Maentz and Terry Barr also
gained recognition as two of the
top senior football players in the_
Tank Champs1
The indoor season promised
some strong title contenders. But1
the Wolverines were blanked inY
Big Ten competition as far ast
championships were concerned.-
It took the swimming squad to,
bring home a national first place
(with a little help from the ineli-
gibility of swimming power Ohio
The success story of the sopho-
more-loaded team was primarily
attributed to diver Dick Kimbell,
who won both the NCAA high andI
low board titles, and to Dick Han-t
ley and Cy Hopkins. Hanley and1
Hopkins seemed to break a rec-i
ord almost every time they en-
tered the water. Michigan hads
once again established itself as a
national swimming power. 1
Meanwhile, the Wolverine hock-
ey team was having another ex-I
citing season with a typically slow
start and a strong finish. Michi-I
gan crept its way up into the sec-
ond place spot in the WIHL, but
the power just was not there asI
Colorado College solidly ended the
reign of Vic Heyliger's team, 13-6,l
in the NCAA finals for the firstl
time in two years.
"Giant Killer"
Basketball saw Michigan endI
with a 13-9 mark for the first
positive season in quite a while.1
In a strong Conference race,
Michigan was able to claim the

Union Builds
New Facilities
For Service
The Michigan Union increases
its services to the University com-
munity every year.
Union facilities are in demand
for lectures, organization meet-'
ings, dinners, and leisure hour
Cafeteria, snack bar, and din-
ing -room service are all provided
by the Union, which serves mere
people than any other Ann Arbor
Rooms are provided for the re-
turning graduate, visiting par-
ents and friends of University
The Union provides meeting
places for any approved group in
both the new and old sections of
the Union.
Established in 1904. the Union
did not have a building for the
first three years of its existence.
Grouni was groken for the
main building in 1916, with the
aid of alumni backing. Three ad-
ditions have been made since then.
Formally dedicated this year,
the newest wing of the Union
houses expanded student offices'
dining, music and conference
rooms-all designed to provide in-
creased service and facilities at1
the Union.
From senior table-top carving to
freshman mixers, the student of-
fices of the union provide many
services to both students and al-
A plan for a representative body
of University men, which has been
around for some time, is being car-
ried out by the Union, and should
be in effect next year.
Increased integration of foreign
students is the aim of the new
International Committee of the
Union, also begun this year.
With the addition of the Inter-
national and Academic Services
committees, 10 student-staffed
committees carry out the projects
of the student offices.
They are responsible for Little
Club, jazz concerts, Saturday night
dances, Quarterback films during
football season, the Student-Fac-
ulty - Administration Conference
an air flight to Europe, theatre
trips and an annual open house.

Every coed automatically be-
comes a member of the Women's
Athletic Association when she en-
rolls in the University and is eli-
gible to take part in all WAA
sponsored activities.
WAA is governed by a policy-
making board composed of an ex-
ecutive council and the sport and
dance club managers.
Among the activities which it
sponsors is Spring Weekend, co-
sponsored with the Union. The
women's organization also spon-
sors Lantern Night in honor of
senior women, this year planned
for Tuesday, May 14.
Michifish and the Modern
Dance group also operate under
the guidance of WAA.
The Association is self-support-
ing, receiving funds to operate
through the sale of blazers, ap-
ples and calendars.
During the past year the As-
sociation became a member of
the Campus Chest Board, aided
the International Center in its
athletic activities, became a mem-
ber+ of the Student Activities
Building committee and occupied
an office at 2543 SAB.
Two new clubs organized dur-
ing the year. The Outing Club
has seasonal activities including
rifle and firearms safety study in
the fall, skiing in the winter and
fishing in the spring. The Life
Guard Corps assists in swimming
classes and serves as lifeguards
for recreational swimming.

title of "giant killer" with two big
victories over NCAA semi-finalist
Michigan State as the most no-
ticeable achievement.
While the other indoor sports
were doing fairly well, one in-
dividual stood out among the field
-shot putter Owen. Although the
track team was unable to recap-
ture its title after four straight
indoor and outdoor crowns, the
performances of Owen captured
many headlines. His steady rise
to the distance of 59' ranked the
husky captain as among the
world's best.
Fugitive from football Jim Pace
was Michigan's only other star in-
doors this winter with a first place
title in the sprints.
Gym Stars
Olympian Ed Gagnier was
Michigan's big drawing card in
the fortunes of the gymnastics
team. A strong second place fin-
ish to Illinois in the Big Ten
championship was satisfying after
a rough dual meet season. Ed Cole
was a welcome addition to the
trampolinists as he gained a Con-
ference first and an NCAA third
The wrestling team at the same
time was unable to win a third
straight title with the difference
only a single point from winner
Minnesota. Most consistent per-
formers all winter were Captain
Mike Rodriguez and Max Pearson,
both Big Ten winners and final-
ists in the NCAA tournament.
Rodriguez will long be remem-
bered as one of the strongest and
most colorful wrestlers on the in-
tercollegiate level.
The spring of 1956 was a fruit-
ful one for Michigan squads with

two titles, a second place, and a
fourth. Biggest name was Mac-
Kay, who not only led the Wolver-
ine tennis team to a Conference
title but also placed himself
among the nation's best.
A preliminary Davis Cup mem-
ber, MacKay competed on an in-
ternational level in the summer.
His best single performance was
to come at the national indoors
as a singles semi-finalist and
doubles champion. Dick Potter,
meanwhile, ranked as Michigan's
second best competitor.
Track brought its fourth title
in a row by 3112 points over Iowa.
Only solo winners were Owen in
the shot put and Eeles Landstrom
in the pole vault. Mark Booth and
Brendan O'Reilly tied for first in
the high jump.
Plagued Diamond
The Michigan baseball was
plagued by an up and down year
but finished in a familiarly strong
fashion with two big victories
over Michigan State. Leading the
Wolverine hitters were Bill Thurs-
ton with a .407 season mark and
Ken Tippery at .345. Michigan
finished a game above the 50-50i
mark with a Conference record of
fourth and six wins, five losses.
The final spring performance
was another strong one, this time
by the i eteran golf team that was
able to tinish just seven strokes
(1501-1508) behind champion
Purdue. Final low man in the
tournament for Michigan was jun-
ior John Schubeck who earned
a fourth place tie.
As with all of Michigan's 1956
spring sports, seasoned personnel
made the 1957 spring a promising
one for the golfers.

life. Why it failed-nobody knows.
