Michigdn's greatest problem will
be to overcome its typical slow
start which' has gotten the Wol-
verines in trouble more than once
this season, and which was very
apparent at Minneapolis.
In the first game against the
Gophers, Minnesota hit for two
quick first period goals. Although
Michigan was able to match the
Gopher output for the final 40
minutes, the game is 60 minutes,
and the Wolverines came out on
the short end of a 4-2 score.

Turner Seeks Success
.in Diving Competition
By ROGER BARNES
"A keen desire to be one of the
top divers in the world," is the way
Diving Coach Bruce Harlan ex-
plains the success of Tony Turner,
Olympic diver and second man on
Michigan's diving squad.
In addition to placing seventh
in Olympic diving, Turner was
champion of Great Britain for
three years, participated in the
British Empire Games in 1954, and]
represented Great Britain in con-
tests throughout Europe. Now at
Michigan, where he is in his junior
year, ']\urner is looking forward to
the 1960 Olympics.
In the 1952 Olympics, Turner,
representing Great Britain, came
in seventh in the three meter
springboard diving competition.
For three years Turner was the
Great Britain champion in the one
and three meter springboard and
ten meter tower diving. Less than
a year before his arrival in Ameri-
ca, he participated in the British
Empire Games in Canada, missing
a Gold Medal by less than a point.
Diving in America, according to
Turner, differs from that in Eu-
rope in that American divers have
a smoother style compared with
the jerky, gymnastic style abroad.
He also states that diving in this
country is superior because of some
Under the coaching of Bruce
Harlan, one of the hardest dives
used in competition was perfected
by Turner. This three-and-one-
half somersault is used by only
three other divers in the country.
He also learned at Michigan an
American technique for "saving
dives." This skill is used by the
diver just as he enters the water
to correct for any fault in the
execution of a dive.
Turner came to America from
England in February of 1955 and
entered Michigan in the fall of
that year. Now a junior in the
School of Education, he is concen-
trating in history in the Lit.
School as well as working toward
his education degree. After the
1960 Olympic Games, which he
hopes to attend, he is planning to
teach in college.

who has a mystery on his hands
that even Sherlock Holmes would
have trouble solving.

respectable 15.2 average.
This year Lee, who is now a 21-
yr. old junior majoring in econo-
mics, has an average of about 12
points for nine Conference games.
Although this isn't anything to
laugh at, it is still poor for a man
of Lee's potential.

Points and 32 rebounds, which is
a conference record for one game,
in the Illinois contest, to two
points. and one rebound in the
Minnesota game. Other than the
Illinois game, his only other good
'-performance this season was in
the Michigan State loss, in which
he scored 22 points.
Lee seems to be highly discour-
aged at his performance this year,
for when approached for an in-
terview, his first comment was,
"Why don't you interview Burton
or Tillotson, they're the ones who
have been doing all the work."

Lee, who was switched to forward
this year in an effort to strength-

His teammate, Pete Tillotson,
however, thought that might be
