point edge. Wisconsin then took
the lead for the last time 40-39,
but two quick baskets and a frge
throw gave the lead back to
Michigan'
For the 'next five minutes the
teams traded baskets until Michi-
gan gained what seemed like a
comfortable lead for/this game of
54-48 at the 11:50 mark.
Then two baskets by Walter Holt
and a set shot by Bob Litzow
knotted the game up for the fifth
time during the night, at 10:36.
Michigan then proceeded to pour
in six straight points on a basket
and two free throws by Terry
Miller.
k After this Michigan was never
headed as the Badgers in an effort
to get the ball, continuously fouled
the Wolverines who proved to be
deadly at the foul line.
Pete Tillotson and Burton took
scoring honors for the Wolverines
with 19 points each. Tillotson who,
scored only six points in the first
half* added 13 'in the second,
mainly on set shots which helped
break Wisconsin's zone defense.
Wisconsin played a slow deliber-
ate type game, taking shots only
when there was an opening. Lit-
sow and Holt with 22 and 17
points respectively were high men
for them.

The Wolverines controlled the
backboards 47-34, with George Lee
grabbing 17, to lead in the depart-
ment. Lee also hit for 15 points.

RIGHT MAN-With Wisconsin threatening to run away with the
game in the first half, Coach Bill Perigo sent in Billy Wright in an
attempt to bolster the team's shooting strength. Wright accom-

$y GARY GUSSIN
Michigan's gymnastic victory
over Michigan State, 61%-502,
last Friday affirmed what has been
known since the beginning of the
season--that the Wolverine's tal-
ent-laden squad would be a power
in the Big Ten this year.
.Ed Gagnier, team captain and
Big Ten all-events champion, was
still out with a chest injury, but
the squad failed to win or tie for
first in only two of the seven
events. Ed Cole, Conference cham-
pion trampolinist, was sidelined by
a sprained ankle, but Michigan's
trampolinists took the first three
places in their event, as usual.
Hayslett Performs Well
Jim Hayslett was the biggest
contributor to the Wolverine cause,
taking a first in the free exercise,
trying for two more in the side
horse and in tumbling and fin-
ished third on the parallel bars.
Hayslett's performance was per-
haps the most encouraging feature
of the meet. Though the blond
gymnast finished fourth in total
points in last year's Big Ten meet,
he had taken firsts in only four
events in the Wolverines' three
previous meets this winter.
. Record Not Indicative
This reason might be good for
any other g'ymnast, but compared
to his showing in the Michigan
State encounter, it is hardly in-
dicative of his real abilities.
Coach Newt Loken expressed the
hope that at last Hayslett might
be "coming into his own," as his
only explanation for his sudden
improvement shown against ,the
Spartans. The gymnast himself
could not pin-point the difference
between Friday's performance and
previous showings either.
A factor that Hayslett did men-

tion was a longer practice time
before the State meet than previ-
ous meets. He hopes to duplicate
the practice session before this
weekend's meets with Indiana and
Illinois; the gymnastics squad
hopes that he will duplicate his
performance against these two
teams.
'M' Nttat ors
Look Strong
"We could take nine first places
in the Big Ten meet," noted swim-
ming Coach Gus Stager as he
launched Michigan's undefeated
squad into its final preparations
for the Conference battle at the
at Iowa City this weekend.
Backing up his premise was the
work of the Wolverines against
Western Ontario on Saturday. Pete
Fries, swimming the backstroke
for the first time in competition,
took first with a respectable 2:19.4.
Michigan Backstrokers
"Something different" was the
way Fries described his first at-
tempt in this department. Other
top-flight Michigan backstrokers
are, Carl Woolley, Dick Hanley and
Cy Hopkins.
Ed Pongracz, who placed second
behind Tony Tashnik in the 200-
yd. butterfly, has been improving
steadily. "I think we have found
his trouble," added Stager and
his times in the last few meets
have shown constant improve-
ment. .
Cited for poor performances
against the Canadians were Brian
Browne and Jim Tanner who
failed to meet expectations in the
freestyle contest.

CANHAM PRAISES SCHWARTZ:
Track Win Shows All-Out Team Effort

By FRED KATZ
A timeworn adage in the sports
world says that "sooner or later
all the breaks will even out."
Michigan's track team had to
wait only one week to appreciate
the truth in that statement.
After losing to Illinois 10 days
ago because of an injury during
the course of thenmile relay, fate
reversed itself, and the dropped
baton of an Ohio State runner in
the same event gave the Wolver-
Keen Forced
-To Juggle
Mat Lineup,
8y HAL APPLEBAUM
"If we had had Larry Murray
and Tom Leith in the lineup we
might have won, as it was we had
to settle for a tie," commented
Wolverine wrestling coach Cliff
Keen when asked about last Sat-
urday's 14-14 draw with Ohio
State.
Murray, who has been wrestling
well all season, sustained a leg
injury in practice last week and
at present 'it is still not known
whether the 137-pounder will be
ready to go in the upcoming Big-
Ten championships 'which will be
held at Champaign on Friday and
Saturday. Leith was unable to
compete when he failed to make
the 147-lb. weight.
Juggles Lineup
As a -result of these absences
Keen was forced to juggle his
lineup. Captain Max Pearson
moved from his spot in the 130=1b.
division to Murray's vacated place
in the 137-lb. class, while Lloyd
Iamady took over Pearson's regu-
lar assignment. Dick Summerwill
replaced Leith in the 147-lb. class.
Pearson easily pinned his op-
ponent Don Paz, but Hamady lost
a "see-saw" battle to Dave Cani-
one, 8-7, and Summerwill was de-
feated, 5-0.
Keen alsoadded in his descrip-
tion of the meet, "You can never
gripe about the officiating, but it
didn't help any. We have pro-
gressed steadily as the season ad-
vanced and this was evident at
Ohio State."
In these quarters it appears that
the team, which had only a medi-
ocre 3-6-1 record, could surprise
the rest of the conference at the
championships this weekend.

ines a narrow victory last Satur-
day, 72-69.'
Coach Don Canham has been all
smiles since these last two per-
formances for they have each
represented all-out efforts by vir-
tually everyone. He even admitted
to being surprised that there
wasn't the slightest trace of let-
down in the OSU meet caused by
the previous loss.
Progress Astounding
But his greatest overtures are
reserved right now for one Don
Schwartz, the sophomore two-
miler whose progress has been
astounding.
Schwartz remained in the pack
for the first 15 laps Saturday and
then burst out in front to win in
the excellent time of 9:35.4.
"And last year at this time he
couldn't have run under 11 min-
utes," says Canham. "He's just
now recovering from the flu, and
his top potential still hasn't been
reached because of this fact."
Could Be Great
Going to the hilt in the praise
of his newest star, Canham adds,
"He could be the greatest two-
miler in the country before he
graduates.
"He has everything: courage,
speed, and tremendous desire. The
good runners pay a price for win-
ning, and he's more than willing
to pay it."
Canham flattered him even
more by comparing him to the

former great Wolverines shotput-
ter Dave Owen. "They're both the
same type, willing to work to com-
pensate for what they lack in
natural aptitude."
Despite Schwartz's success in
the two-mile, Canham plans to
keep him there, instead of ex-
perimenting with him in other
distance events.
The comnbination of. coaching
strategy and top performances was
the basic reasoh behind the win
over the Buckeyes. Canham
switched several of his men around
in the hope of gaining the maxi-
mum number of points, and it
paid off.
Ernie/ Simms came through in
the 1000-yd. run, and Cant Gray,
another runner trying to rid him-
self of the flu, finished in a dead.
heat in the 880 with Robin Varian.
