Hope To Square Record

By TOM WITECKI
A duel between two trampoline
stars will be the feature of Mich-
igan's gymnastic meet at Ohio
State today.
Wolverine trampolinist Ed Cole,
Big Ten and Junior National
trampoline champion, will take
on Don Harper of the Buckeyes{
who is the NCAA champion.
Baeking up Harper for Ohio State
will be Dave O'Brien. This pair
has finished 1-2 in almost every
meet Ohio State has competed in
and they should furnish some real
tough competition for the Mich-
igan trampolinists.
Three Compete
Although only three can com-
pete, four other trampolinists be-
Pace Signs
With 49ers
Michigan's star halfback Jim
Pace came to terms yesterday with
the San Francisco 49ers of the
Western 'Division of the National
Football League.
The fleet ballcarrier from Little
Rock, Ark., was the No. 1 draft
choice of the 49ers at the close of
the 1957 collegiate football season.
The Wolverine was voted the
Big Ten's most valuable player for
the 1957 campaign, and was the
leading scorer an'd ground-gainer
in the Conference. His play against
Ohio State was the high point of
the Michigan football season.
Pace could not be reached for
comment, and the terms of the
contract were not available. He
had said earlier in the year that
he was anxious to play profes-
sional football, and was happy'
that he would be able to play for
San Francisco.,

sides Cole are making the trip.
They are: Frank Newman,, Al
Stall, Chuck Clarkson, and Jack
Eckle. A noticeable absentee from
this list is Dick Kimball who will
be diving for the swimming team
this afternoon in their meet with
Michigan State.
The meet which is only Michi-
gan's second against Big Ten
competition, should give a good
indication on how the gymnasts
will do without their captain, Ed
Gagnier, who was injured last
week.
f Gagnier Makes Trip
Gagnier will make the trip, but
the only support the team will
receive from their highest point
getter this afternoon will be vo-
cal support. Gagnier will be side-
lined with his injury for approxi-
mately three more weeks.
Coach Newt Loken is hopeful
that all around gymnasts Wolf-
gang Dozauer, Al Stall, Nino
Marion, Jim Hayslett. and Barry
Feinberg can fill the gap left by
Gagnier's injury.
Another interesting event to-
day will be the tumbling event
where Wolverine Bill Skinner will
be entered for the first time
against Big Ten competition. In
last week's meet against Central
Michigan, Skinner took first place
in the tumbling event in his first
appearance in a Michigan uni-
form.
Tough Opposition
Although Ohio State will not
be an easy opponent, they are,
easy compared to the competition
the gymnasts will face in the next'
two months. Next Friday night
the Wolverines face the Spartans
of Michigan State at home in
what promises to be a close and
exciting meet. The Wolverines
will also face Illinois defending
Big Ten champions and Penn
State, defending NCAA cham-
pions in dual meetes.

DOUBLE TROUBLE-Guards Nick Mantis (left) and Dick John-
son will test Michigan's basketball team this afternoon as the
Wildcats of Northwestern play the Wolverines at Yost Feld House,
Michigan hopes to avenge an earlier defeat at the hands of the
,Wildcats.

MSU Invades Michigan Pool
For Dual Meet Crown Today

Daily Classifieds
Bring Results

By TOM BITTKER
In the top dual swim meet of the
season, Michigan's NCAA cham-
pions will clash with Big Ten title-
holders Michigan State at 2:30
p.m. today at the Varsity Exhibi-
tion Pool.
Gus Stager, Wolverine swim
coach, cites, "We've had one good
Big Ten meet this year and that
was the Big Ten Relays (this was
an exhibition match held earlier
at East Lansing, in which the
Wolverines unofficially won). This
meet coming up is the first good
competition that we've had during
the regular season, and we're really,
looking forward to it."
Both Teams Undefeated
The meet will feature the only
two undefeated tank squads in the
Western Conference and will vir-
tually decide the dual meet cham-
pionship.
Although Michigan took the
mythical dual meet title last sea-
son, the Spartans merited con-
sideration as official Conference
champions by winning the Big Ten
Championship held at Ohio State
last spring.
The visitors from East Lansing
boast two outstanding sophomores
in Billy Steuart, of South Africa,
and Frank Modine, of Wyandotte.
Steuart, a middle distance free-,
styler, has entered fourteen events,
and won them all.
While swimming in the 220-yd.

breastroke and medley relay, Mo-
dine's record has remained un-
marred.
These two Spartans are supple-
mented by Don Patterson, a jun-
icr from Glenview, Illinois, who
excells as a sprinting freestyler.
Superior Depth
"Michigan State has superior
freestyle depth having six good
sprinters to our two, but I think
that our balance is equal to theirs,"
asserts Stager.
Spartan coach Charles McCaf-
free, in his 17th year at Michigan
State, will present four other All-
Americans besides Patterson; 'Ro-

PITTSBURGH (M) -- Branch
Rickey Sr., creator of baseball's
farm system and board chairman
of the Pittsburgh Pirates, feels
much better now following treat-
ment for a "mild" heart attack.

captain Wally Dobler, individual

men including Steuart, Modine,

either the 400-yd. freestyle or
medley relays.
Smith to Swim
A recent addition to the Wol-
verine swim aggregation is back-
stroker John Smith, who regained
eligibility after a semester's ab-
sence from the University.
Considered by Stager as the
most outstanding of last season's
freshmen prospects, Smith will
rival State's Nichols for backstroke
honors.
However Smith's performance
tomorrow should not be cited as
criteria for his potential, since he
is still far from the peak of con-
ditioning.
It is ironic that it was Nichol's
record that Smith broke when he
posted a national record time of
:58.7.
Perhaps the two closest contests
of the day will match Wolverine.
ace Dick Hanley against the South
African Olympian, Steuart in the
220-yd. or 100-yd. freestyle events.
Michigan State will be entering
the meet with seven wins to Michi-
gan's five victories this year.

Michigan's basketball team will
get a chance this afternoon at 4:30
p.m. at Yost Field House to square
three accounts fors the season; its
record against Northwestern, its
record before the TV cameras, and
its Big Ten record.
The Wolverine cagers'lost to the
Wildcats at Evanston, Ill., in Jan-
uary for their first Conference de-
feat of the then young season.
Since that time they have dropped
four more Big Ten contests, and
now have a 4-5 league record.
Lost on Television
In the other television game,
Michigan lost a home contest to
Purdue during the semester break.
At that time it appeared that the
squad was rusty from a long lay-
off. Since then the rust hasn't-
worn off, as the 'M' quintet has
won one and lost four.
The Purdue failure was one of
two home defeats this year, the
other being to powerful Michigan
State. This fact, plus Northwest-
ern's season record, should give
the Wolverines a good chance to
square things in the Conference
at five wins and five losses today.
Wildcats at .500
The Wildcat crew stands at 5-5,
presently, and have proved to be
a hot-and-cold club, much like the
Wolverines. Both squads depend
on balanced scoring, since all five
regulars never seem to operate
well the same night.
Northwestern has all five start-
ers averaging over 10 points per
game, and the group leads the Big
Ten in team scoring. The group

The Michigan-Northwestern

is led by forward Phil Warren
with a 17.4 clip, and 6'9" center
Joe Ruklick who hits around 15.
Forward Willie Jones and guards
Nick Mantis and Dick Johnson
round out the squad, and are all
capable of a 20-plus performance
at any time.
Michigan, on the other hand,
has received most of the scoring
punch from the front line of M. C.
Burton, Pete Tillotson and George
Lee, although guards Terry Miller
and Jack Lewis can contribute
their share.
Sticks With Lineup
Wolverine coach Bill Perigo
stated that he would probably

stick with this regular starting
line-up. However, he said "there
is no teelling where I will go from
there."
The Michigan mentor has been
experimenting all week with the
use of center Gordy Rogers and
regular subs Randy Tarrier and
Billy Wright.
Today's game will provide a re-
match for Burton and Jones, two
of the flashiest players in the Big

fallen off since the beginning of
the season, when he outplayed

less, and has fouled out of many
games.

TWO SENSATIONAL SPARKLING HITS
TWICE AS TERRIFIC TOGETHER!

36

By HAL APPLEBAUM
The traditional Michigan-Mich-
igan State rivalry will move into
another field today when Cliff
Keen's wrestling squad meets the
Spartans in East Lansing.
The Wolverines will be tryings
for their third win of the season
against the Spartans, who will be,
seeking their fourth victory. Mich-
igan has lost six matches while
MSU has lost three.
Michigan has beaten Northwest-
ern and Purdue while losing to;
Pittsburgh, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa
State, Minnesota, and Iowa. On7
the other hand Michigan State has
been victorious over Ohio State,
Purdue and Illinois. They were de-
feated by Iowa, Iowa Teachers,
and Indiana. They also came in'
third in a Quadrangular meet in
which they competed with North-
western, Minnesota and Purdue.
Common Record
As far as the team records versus.
common opponents goes, State
holds a slight advantage. Both
teams defeated Purdue by similar
margins and lost to Indiana and
Iowa by equal scores while the
Wolverines bowed to Illinois who
were upset by the Spartans last
week, 19-9.
This has been a rebuilding sea-
son for Michigan and at the start
of the season the team was quite
green. However, as the year has
progressed the team has shown

marked improvement, but their
comparative inexperience is still
in evidence.
Several times in last week's
match, which the Wolverines
dropped to Iowa 17-9, they had
chances to win but due to their
greenness they were unable to
capitalize on them.
While no exact lineup for tomor-
row's meet has been announced it
is quite possible Keen will use the
same eight wrestlers he used
against Iowa. This group consists
of 123-lb. Mike Hoyles, Larry Mur-
ray in the 130-lb. class, Captain
Max Pearson at 137 - lbs., Dick
Summerwill in the 147-lb. division,
157-lb. Ton Leith, 167-1b. Jack
Marchello, 177-lb. Carl Lutomski
and Heavyweight Fred Olm.
Consistent Winners
Of this group Pearson, Murray
and Marchello have been the most
consistent. So far this season Mar-
chello has won all the matches in
which he has participated and
Murray has lost only one. Pearson
who is wrestling above his normal
weight class has shown steady im-
provement after a slow start. The.
rest of the squad has been erratic
in its performances so far this
season.
Michigan State, which was tied
for sixth in the Big Ten meet last
year, will be lead by Captain Norm
Gill, who was third in the 137-lb.

class, Leroy Fladseth, who was
fourth in the 177-lb. division and
123-lb. Dan Stroud.
The match between the two
Captains, Pearson of Michigan and
Gill of Michigan State should
highlight the match. Pearson was
Big Ten champion in the 130-lb.
class last year.
Jones Wins
Golf Award
By The Associated Press
Making a runaway of the vet-
ing, Robert Tyre Jones Jr. today
won the William D. Richardson
Trophy for his outstanding con-
tribution to golf in the last year.

620 points, Including 87 first-
place votes, in the balloting by
members of the Golf Writers' As-
sociation.
