John Smith continued to work
himself into top shape for the all
important Conference meet in two
weeks, with a creditable 2:16.4
clocking in the 200-yd. backstroke.
Fries Falls Short
Coach Stager considered the
220-yd. freestyle the most excit-
ing race of the evening. Pete Fries,
swimming the number one opsi-
tion for Michigan, held back just
a bit too long before making his
bid to overtake State's Chuck
Bechtel. He lost in a very close
and fast-sprinted finish.

linist Ed Cole will be unable to
compete in Saturday's meet with
Cole severely sprained his ankle
on the trampoline Monday after-
noon and the slow-healing injury
will put him alongside Captain Ed
Gagnier on the inactive list.
Loken plans to have Cole back
in action for next week's crucial
road trip to Illinois and Indiana.
Gagnier, however, i§ expected to
be on the sidelines for about
another two weeks with a partial
separation of a chest muscle suf-
fered while practicing for the Cen-
tral Michigan Meet February 15.

Phi Delts, Phi Gains Win
By AL SINAI
Despite the presence of its dog,
Schwantz, Sigma Phi Epsilon
went down to defeat, 25-19, in a
first place basketball "B" play-
off at the I-M building last night.
Schwantz, much to the merri-
ment of a large crowd, cheered
the Sig Eps by barking loudly
throughout the game. However,
he failed to disturb the Phi Delta
Theta team as they led, 14-8, at
the half and managed to hold
their six point lead through the
rest of the gane. High scorer for
the Phi Delts was Roger Vander
Ploeg with 12 points.
In the most exciting game of,
the night, Sigma Chi eked out a
26-25 victory over Delta Tau Del-
ta in a "B" playoff for first place.
John Emmerling of Delta Tau
Delta missed a chance to win or
tie the game when he was fouled
as the game ended, then missed
both foul shots.
Sigma Chi held a 14-10 half-
time lead, however, halfway
through the second half, Emmer-
ling tied the score, 20-20, on a
foul shot. From then on, the game
became 'a closely contested battle
until Fred Steel of Sigma Chi
scored what proved to be the win-
ning basket on a jump shot.
In another first place play-
off, Chi Phi led all the way to
defeat Lambda Chi Alpha, 20-19,
Lambda Chi Alpha faced a five
point deficit with only a few sec-
onds to go, but they scored two
quick .baskets to give Chi Phi a
scare. However, it wasn't enough.
Phi Sigma Delta surged to an
early 9-4 lead over Alpha Delta
Phi in a "B" third place playoff
and relaxed the rest of the way
to win, ' 21-16.
Phi Gamma Delta scored 16
points to Delta Sigma Phi's eight
in the second half of their "B"
first place playoff to turn an oth-
erwise close game into an easy
victory for the Phi Gams, 32-24.
Dick Petersen of Phi Gamma
Delta was high scorer with 12
Other scores in "B" llayoff
competition were Sigma Nu over
Zeta Beta, Tau, 21-10, Theta Xi
over Theta Chi, 21-5, Beta Theta
Pi over Kappa Sigma, 35-22.

Wrestling fans may be wonder-
ing why there have been fewer
falls scored during Michigan dual
wrestling meets this season than
in other years.
For example, three grapplers
were put on their backs in each
of three separate Wolverine dual
meets last season. But meets this
year with as many as two pins
are not common, and contests
with one or no pins are becoming
Wrestling Coach Cliff Keen
says that collegiate wrestling rules
are partially to blame for the re-
duced number of falls. "When a
wrestler gets an advantage hold
on his opponent, thereby gaining
two points, he is more concerned
with protecting his two-point lead
than working for a pin," adds
Although the rules state specifi-
cally that the man with the ad-
vantage must work aggressively
toward pinning his opponent,
Keen says the grappler doesn't
have to be as aggressive now as in
Keen states that because of the
emphasis on "control wrestling"
that more matches are ending in
decisions and draws, and fewer
He also asserts that for a
wrestler to gain a pin, he must
be very aggressive. Mike Rodri-
guez, captain and star of Michi-
gan's team the past two years,
was more aggressive than any-
one on the M' team this year.
"Whenever Rodriguez got a
takedown on an opponent, he
went for the pin," Keen says.

the end of the season.

economical in travel expenses.
were reports that this withdrawal
was a preview of developments
that would eventually lead to the
formation of the Big Ten Hockey
The Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics at Michigan,
reporting about the withdrawal,
state: "The three Big Ten institu-
tions were influenced by a desire
to encourage other members of our
Conference to enter upon an inter-
collegiate hockey program.
"We would like to see hockey
become one of the recognized areas
of varsity competition in the Con-
ference. As long as the three mem-
bers who play hockey are firmly
committed to play an extensive
schedule each year with non-Con-
ference institutions having rules
substantially different from our
own, there is little likelihood that
other Conference institutions will
be willing to take up intercollegi-
ate hockey even though they might
desire to do so."

have been mentioned as possible
members of the League, if it is to
be formed. Ohio State, Wisconsin

representative of athletics at

might be some doubt as to whether
an actual league is proposed.
It is Plant's belief, rather, that'
"the Conference would serve more
as a framework upon which inter-
collegiate hockey could be built."

will discuss the official and student
reaction at Ohio State, Wisconsin
and Illinois to the proposed league.
