Armbruster Lauded;
Stager Wins Meet
The 48th Big Ten swimming
championships ended with Michi-
gan taking its 17th conference
conference title.
As a team, the Wolverines dom-
inated the meet, but to the swim-
mers and coaches involved, this
year's meet will always belong to
one man - Iowa's David L. Arm-
This was Armbruster's last meet
as ,a swimming coach. After 42
years as the first and only Iowa
coach, he finally decided to retire.
Closes Career
While it was the last for Arm-
bruster, it was a great first win
for Michigan's young coaches,
Gus Stager and Bruce Harlan. It
was their first Big Ten crown
since becoming Wolverine coaches
four years ago.
Stager and Harlan came on the
scene after the retirement of
Michigan's great coach, Matt
Mann, who had developed the
Wolverines into a national power
during -his long reign.
One thing, however, that diving
coach Harlan was unable to do
this year was to unseat Ohio State
as diving, champions. Mike Peppe,
coach at OSU saw his divers win
the title for the 22nd time in 23
Harper Still King
Don Harper, retained his title
as 'king of the divers' as he won
both the one and three meter
championship with t e a m m a t e
Glen Whitten placing second.
Dick Kimball of Michigan fin-
ished third in both events and
the Wolverines' Alvaro Gaxiola
registered a fifth place finish in
the three meter diving.
Kimball and Ted Reissing were
Michigan's co-captains for the
meet since regular captain Don
Adamski was ineligible.
Armbruster felt that his last
meet was the best Big Ten meet.
"This is one of the greatest Big
Ten meets held, competition has
been so tight and close that no
event has actually been consid-
ered safe for any team," he ob-
"Even in diving, Ohio State has
been challenged more closely than
ever before," he - added.

Green, Minnesota's George Kline,
Ohio State's Frank Howard and
Illinois' Don Ohl, that's the Asso-
ciated Press All-Big Ten basket-
ball team for 1958.
Dees, the conference scoring
champion for the second straight
year, and Green, the rebounding
leader, were unanimous choices of
the 14 AP writers participating in
the poll.
Iowa's Dave Gunther, the No. 3
scorer with 291 points, barely
missed making the first unit but
topped the second team which also
included Wilson Eison of Purdue;
M. C. Burton, Michigan; Joe Ruk-
lick, Northwestern, and Bob An-
deregg, Michigan State.
Kline finished second to Dees
with 322 points and Ohl was fourth
with 295. Green was seventh with

points, was third in rebounds with

NCAA Begins
Cage Tourney
At Two Sites
By The Associated Press
West Virginia, whose 26-1 record
is best in the country, and Mary-
land, giant-killer of the Atlantic
Coast Conference, help open the
NCAA basketball tournament to-
The West Virginians play Man-
hattan and Maryland opposes Bos-
ton College in two-thirds of a
triple-header at New York's Madi-
son Square Garden.
The other game sends Dart-
mouth's Ivy League champions
against Connecticut.
At Evanston, Ill., tonight Miami
of Ohio plays Pittsburgh and
Tennessee Tech meets Notre Dame.
These winners go to Lexington
where Kentucky will face the
Pitt-Miami victor and Indiana
will take on the Notre Dame-
Tennessee Tech survivor.

Michigan's hockey team came
away from Houghton with another
split-its fifth of the season.
The Wolverines won Friday's
game, 3-1, but Michigan Tech re-
versed its playing form to take a
4-3 verdict Saturday night.
Sunday morning while the team
waited in a little wooden shack
known as the Houghton Airport
for the plane to carry it back to
Ann Arbor, Bobby Watt was elect-
ed captain of next year's squad.
Has Looked Impressive
The amiable sophomore from
Barrie, Ont., made quite an im-
pression on local hockey fans in,
his first varsity season. He was
one of three new defensemen on!
the squad this year.
Watt, who usually teamed with
Warren Wills, showed he was most
effective in poke checking. On
many occasions Watt took the
center position on an offensive'
drive where he proved he can also
move the puck quite well.'

.., chosen new captain

Watt will be the first junior to
serve as captain since Bill Mac-
Farland in 1954.
Limelight Focused
The WIHL limelight over the
weekend was centered on Min-
neapolis and Denver. Three of the
four teams playing in these two
cities were in contention for the
two Western playoff positions in
the NCAA tournament.
At Denver, North Dakota gained
a split with the Pioneers, assuring
it of one of the spots.
At Minneapolis, Colorado had to
win one of the two games to edge
out Denver for the other spot,
but it failed. Thus Denver and the
Nodaks will represent the West in
the playoffs to be held Thursday-
Saturday of this week.
Encouraging Notes
At Houghton, several encourag-
ing signs were evident for next
year. The Wolverines looked better
than at any other time this year.
After Saturday's game, one of
the referees casually observed, "I
don't understand how Michigan is
in sixth position the way it played
this weekend." -
This statement indicates just
how good the Wolverines looked.

Cooley, Van Tyne Win;
Gain Berths in 'A' Finals


Victories by Cooley and Van
Tyne houses in the first place
semi-finals of the I-M A' resi-
dence house basketball league last
night set the stage for the final
round of games to take place next
Monday and,'Thursday.
Cooley trounced Greene 48-25
and Van Tyne overwhelmed
Strauss by an almost identical
margin 44-22. They will vie for
the championship next Thursday
Cooley's high (scoring duo of.
Ken Gnewuch and Kim Greene
were too much for Green's porous
defense as they combined to score
30 points. Greene, who hit for 16
was closely followed for game
scoring honors by Gnewuch who
had 14.
Increase Small Lead
Although Van Tyne had only a
small four point lead at the start
of the third quarter they continu-
ously added to their score in the
last half to ultimately win by 22
points. Reid Bushong led the way
for Van Tyne with 17 points.
In 'A' second place semi-finals
Michigan downed Huber 42-32.
Scoring honors went to Earl

Saturday's game could have easily
gone either way.
After the initial onslaught by
Tech, in which it scored three
quick goals, Michigan dominated
play and stymied the Huskies.
Kelley Exceptional
Pete Kelley played an exception-.
al game and certainly indicates
good insurance for Al Rrenfrew in
the goalie department.
Saturday's game marked the end
of the collegiate hockey careers of
Don McIntosh, Ed Switzer and
Neil McDonald.

Team spirit and cooperation
were the main reasons for Michi-
gan winning the Big Ten swim-
ming championship Saturday eve-
No one individual was responsi-
ble for the victory. As Coach Gus
Stager put it, "It was the most
amazing team performance I've
ever seep."
Tony Tashnick, Cy Hopkins and
Dick Hanley combined for seven
of the Wolverine's eight first
places, but in the Big Ten meet,
the winning team needs to have
depth, it needs to be able to place
several men in every race.
This Michigan was able to do.
Pete Fries, Ed Pongracz, Carl
Woolley, Al Maten and John
Smith were unable to gain first
places, but their second, third,
four th and fifth place finishes all
added points to the Michigan
Woolley recorded two seconds
and a third. In both the grueling
1500-meter freestyle and also the
440-yd. freestyle he finished be-
hind MSU's Billy Steuart. He also
finished third behind teammate
Hanley who won the 220-yd. free-
Smith's two second places in the
100 and 200-yd. backstroke gave
Michigan key points. Both times
Iowa Captain Lincoln Hurring
won, but Smith stayed close to the
two-time NCAA winner. Smith
also swam the backstroke on the

performance of Maten and Pon-
gracz. Both men were on the
winning, 400-yd. medley relay
team. Maten also finished fourth
in the 100-yd. breaststroke and
sixth in the 200-yd. breaststroke.
Sophomore Tashnick, who
wasn't even regarded at the be-
ginning of the season, was the
individual star of the entire meet.
He captured three firsts: the 100-
and 200-yd. butterfly and the indi-
vidual medley. Tashnick, who
broke the NCAA record set by
Yale's Tim Jecko in the 200-yd.
butterfly, will face Jecko in three
weeks in the NCAA meet.
Hanley and Hopkins each won
two races. Stager regards them
as the two toughest swimmers in
collegiate circles.

stated Stager, "both swimmers had
