(Continued from Page 1)

The Wolverines were seldom al-
lowed to get close to the basket
and Wisconsin grabbed the re-
bounds before the Blue could go
in for a second chance.
Hit Only .300
Michigan could not seem to con-
nect from outcourt, sinking 24 out
of 82 field goal attempts for a
.300 showing while the Badgers

took only 59 shots 'but made 23 of
them good for a .390 average.
Free throws proved to be the de-
ciding factof as Wisconsin took
the edge at the outset with ten
consecutive buckets from thee
charity line.
The Badgers wound up sinking.
24 out of 31 chances for a .774
percentage; Michigan netted 17
of 28 attempts for a .610 record.
Pile Up Lead
The Badgers Jumped away
quickly to a 30-19 lead as the Wol-
verines foundered, hurt by the loss
of Ron Kramer, who sat out most
of the first period after picking
up four fouls in the first ten
minutes of play.
Wisconsin managed to stave off
a late-period Wolverine surge andI
the half ended with Michigan on
the short end of a 32-29 score.
In the second half things tight-
ened up considerably but the Bad-
gers managed continually to hold
a five to eight point lead over the
Wisconsin proved tar have the
greater accuracy, however, andR
air-tight defensing kept the Wol-;
verines out of the important key-
hole area. The loss of Kramer,
due to fouls, and some wild shoot-l
ing, held the Wolverines down.
The one bright spot in the Wol-I
verines' .showing last night wasj
that they out rebounded the Bad-
gers, grabbing 55 off the back-I
boards while Wisconsin managed
to come up with 44.

Owen Sets
Three New
Shot Marks
The dust cloud raised by the
prodigious 59' put that Dave Owen
made Saturday night at the Mich-
igan AAU Track Meet has finally
cleared enough to show a whole.
array of broken records.
IFirst and foremost, Owen now
holds claim to the longest in-
door throw for a collegian. World
record holder Parry O'Brien has
thrown over 60' indoors but not
while he was still in college.
Longest From Dirt Circle
Owen also broke the record he
set at the Michigan State Relays
for the longest indoor throw any
time, from a dirt circle. When
O'Brien made his 60'-plus heaves
they were from board circles.
In addition to these national
marks, all the existing Conference
indoor and outdoor marks and the
Yost Field House records were
shattered by the big senior. But
the Big Ten records will 'remain
Hockey Note
Hockey fans are reminded
that the second of the two con-
tests with Minnesota this week-
end at the Coliseum will be
played on Saturday afternoon,
starting at 3:30, instead of the
usual time - 8:00 p.m. The
Friday game will be played at
the regular time.
the books until such a time as
hey are broken in the Conference
Fonville Holds Marks
At the present time the Confer-
ence indoor and outdoor marks
are held by ex-Wolverine Charley
Fonville, who set them in 1948
with heaves of 56'10-3/8" and
58'-3/8" respectively. Fonville also
had held, up to Saturday night,
the Field House mark, with a dis-
tance of 56'10%'.
While Owen's effort almost
overshadowed everything else
Saturday night, the fact that the
rest of the Michigan cindermen
are rounding into shape and will
once again be a power to reckon
with at the Big Ten finals can-
not be overlooked.
Pace Returns
Jimmy Pace returned to action
for the first time this season, and
while he did not catch Olympic
star Ira Murchison in the 60-yd
dash, coach Don Canham said
that he looked good and will be a
definite threat when he gets into
top form.
The Michigan relay teams hit
mid-season stride and captured
four out of -five events. In other
events, high-jumper B r e n d a n
O'Reilly and pole-vaulter Mamon
Gibson both took first-place ties
at heights close to Conference
Unfortunately, among all the
good news that came out of ,the
meet there was one dark cloud.
Bob Rudesill finished way out'of
the money in the 300-yd. dash and
appears to be far from top condi-

Purdue Falls

Indiana Wins

State's Jack Quiggle hit a 25-ft.
set shot with four seconds to play
and the Spartans beat Purdue last
night, 68-66, in a Big Ten basket-
ball thriller.
Purdue's third straight defeat,
leaving it with a 5-4 conference
record, virtually knocked it out of
Qontention for the Western Con-
ference title. Michigan State, 5-3,
remained a contender.
The Spartans rallied briskly in
the last 10 minutes after trailing
Purdue most of the game.
Indiana Wins
one-two scoring punch of Archie
Dees and Dick Neal exploded In-
diana to a 91-72 victory over Min-
nesota last night in a key Big
Ten Conference basketball tilt.
Indiana, holding top spot in the
conference, ran its lead to 30
points and was out front 86-56 with
5:18 remaining in the game.
Neal, who had hit 11 of 13 shots
from the field, and Dees, who had
paced Indiana with 29 points, then
left the game to a standup ova-
tion. Neal, firing jump shots from
the side, had 24 points.
Illini Whip Northwestern
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.-Capt. Harv
Schmidt hammered home 34
points in leading Illinois to a 104-
97 victory over Northwestern last
night in a torrid-shooting Big Ten
basketball game.

Gymnastics-A Short Story
GYMNASTICS is a relatively new sport at Michigan. Although
Michigan was actually competing in gymnastics back in the 1920's,
it was not until 1948 that the sport was revived on a yearly basis.
And it has been gaining momentum ever since under the direc-
tion of one of Michigan's most energetic coaches, Newt Loken.
One can witness the increased interest in gymnastics here by
noticing the sharp increase in the number of spectators. This past
weekend was the big dual meet one with NCAA champion Illinois
on Friday and Indiana as an anti-climax on Saturday. Loken's crew
lost, 63-49, and won easily, 75-35, in its split. Both meets were at-
tended by standing-room crowds of 600 on the main floor of the I-M
I have noticed the greater interest in just a few short years,
thanks to two individuals - Loken and junior Ed Gagnier.
It often takes only one outstanding performer to draw the
crowds. We've seen it in the spring when Barry MacKay leads a
strong tennis team. We saw it this past weekend as Gagnier leads
a good gymnastics squad.
Gymnastics is a unique sport. Iron nerves, extreme confidence
and top flight conditioning are essentials. Also, if you watch this
team in action, you'll notice that they probably have as good a time
as any Varsity sport here. Loken's enthusiasm carries over to his
team members. He's a showman (Saturday's meet even has music
during some of the events) and a producer with one star performer-

Starring Ed Gagnier -. .
WHEN in good form, the graceful athlete is near-perfection. Al-
though somewhat off"in form against Illinois, he still was the
high-point man in the meet.
Against Indiana on Saturday, Gagnier, besides five firsts, also
turned in one of his very best jobs in the parallel barswith 283 out
of a 300 possible points.
Michigan is also particularly strong this year with a trampoline
team that Loken calls "the best in the country." Depth is the key here
with three good performers - Ed Cole, Frank Newman and Dick
Kimball. This past weekend Cole was high man with scores of 277
and 271.
But no matter how good the Wolverines may be, Illinois still re-
mains in a class by itself. The Illini have won the Western Conference
title every year since 1950. Michigan now seems to be leading the
pack in the leap for second place.
With Gagnier and a strong trampoline team, Loken is .a little
more optimistic about the NCAA Championships at the end of March.
But the big one is coming to Ann Arbor with the Big Ten Cham-
pionships on March 2-3. It's a skillful show usually worth watching.
