Don Robinson, backfield coach
of the Michigan football team, has
officially resigned to enter private
The resignation which was ru-
mored over the weekend was made
public yesterday.
Enters Insurance Field
Robinson stated that he has re-
tired from coaching to enter the
life insurance business.
Declaring that he was reluctant
to end his 'association with the
staff and the team, Robinson said,

Title Hopes
The Michigan swimming team
had its hopes of a Big Ten chan-
pionship brightened after down-
ing a strong Iowa contingent at
the Varsity pool Saturday.
The improving Wolverines ran
their unbeaten string in dual com-
petition to four by beating the
Hawkeyes, 58-47.
Hanley-Morris Duel
The meet was a matching of
'ensational sophomores: Michi-
gan's' Dick Hanley and Cy Hop-
kins against Iowa's Gary Morris.
Hanley set a pool record in the
224-yd. freestyle with a time of
2:13.6, more than a second fast-
er than the old mark. In the 100-
yd. freestyle, Hanley broke the
existing pool mark, but finished
a stroke behind Iowa's Morris who
won the event in :49.8.
Cy Hopkins continued to exhi-
bit winning form in the butter-
fly, breaking the old pool record
in the 220-yd. butterfly by 12 sec-
onds. Hopkins continued his un-
beaten string in the 220-yd.
breaststroke. The sophomore star
is recognized as one of the top
breaststroke-butterfly swimmers
in the country.
Gary Morris of Iowa was sen-
sational. Besides beating Hanley
in the 100-yd. freestyle in record
time, Morris also anchored the
400-yd. freestyle relay team which
broke the exisitng pool mark and
set another pool record in the 200-
yd. individual medley.

"It was a privilege to work under
Bennie (Oosterbaan).
"It was a 'unique . experience to
work with suct- a fine gentleman
as Coach Oosterbaan.. Working
with the staff has been a pleasure
and with the team a privilege,"
stated Robinson.
Coach Oosterbaan said, "We are
sorry to see Don leave the staff.
He was an important part of our
staff, and we shall miss him. We
regret his departure, but wish him
well in his new venture and we
know that he will enjoy success.''
Native of Detroit
Robinson is a native of Detroit
and a graduate of Cooley High
School. While at Michigan, he
earned three letters in football and
two in baseball.
World War II interrupted his
college career after he had played
two seasons of football in 1941-42.
He served in the Army as a bomber
pilot, serving many missions, in
Italy. He returned to Michigan
and finished school in 1947.
Joining the Michigan athletic

sity until 1954 at which time he
became the backfield coach.
His baseball background includes
being a member of Ray Fisher's
Big Ten champion baseball team
in 1942. He was elected captain of
the 1943 squad when military ser-
vice temporarily h3alted his ath-
letic career.

This past weekend was a big one
for Michigan's Barry MacKay.
In the Buffalo (N.Y.) Midwinter
Invitational Tennis Tournament
held on Saturday and Sunday,
MacKay beat two of the nation's
top tennis players-Dick Savitt
and Vic Sexias in what the lanky
senior admits was "the best tennis
I have ever played."
Makes Finals
MacKay reached the finals of
the indoor tournament after pull-
ing the two big upsets but he was
finally worn down by fourth-seed-
ed Ed Moylan of Trenton, N. J.

But Heyliger expressed satisfac-
tion with the performance of vet-
eran Bernie Hanna, who stepped
into Buchanan's skates for the

Goalie Ross Childs' play must
have impressed Heyliger, too, as

Track Picture Gloomy

Although the sun was shining
brightly through the window, there
was an air of gloom as Coach Don
Canham talked over the last track
meet and previewed the future.
The results of the meet against
Penn State found Michigan mod-
erately ahead at 65-49, a fair but
not overwhelming margin. Can-
ham said that Michigan's perform-
ance was "not very good."
Looking ahead to the coming

clash, the coach was not very op-
Not Enough Winners
He noted the lack of other po-
tential conference champions on
the team excluding of course, Cap-
tain Dave Owen the burly shot
putter and Brendan O'Reilly the
high jumper.
Canham also said that many of
the performers have been taken
down with "senioritis," a disease
common to many seniors await-
ing graduation.
Previewing the coming Illinois
meet which will start at 1:00 this
Saturday afternoon, the coach
