PRELIMINARIES OPEN IN IOWA TODAY:
'M' Rated 'Dark Horse' in Big Ten Gymnastics Meet

(

Ten Meet when he had finished
second to Steuart.
Parks jumped the gun at the
beginning of the race-a rarity
in the 1,500. He took over the lead
from Steuart at the quarter mile
mark in 4:50.3, oply to have see-
saw for the remainder of the
race.
Pete Fries--the other Michigan
entry in the 1,500-meters-also
turned in a disappointing time.
Fries' clocking of 19:16.1 had
brought him fifth place in the Big
Ten Meet but last night'sheffort
was only 19:44.
In the diving Dick Kimball, the

defending NCAA champion, placed
second to Ohio State's Don Harper.
Harper was unable to compete last
year because of an NCAA proba-
tion ban, but is Big Ten champion
and NAAU title holder. Harper
was also second to ex-Buckeye
Bob Clotworthy in the 1956 Olym-
pic springboard championships.
Harper executed his dives with
perfection and scored 481.25 points
to Kimball's 467.3.
Gaxiola Places Third
Michigan's Al Gaxiola finished
in third place with 458.3. Ron
Smith of SMU was fourth.
The afternoon's surprise in the
qualifying round of the diving
was the failure of OSU's Glen
Whitten-the second half of the
Buckeye's one-two punch -- to
place in the finals. Whitten had
finished fourth in the 1956 Olym-
pics.
Michigan Diving Coach Bruce
Harlen was particularly pleased
with Gaxiola's performance and
hadn't expected him to place

was up against. Kimball and Gax-
iola however accounted for 'nine
of Michigan's 10 points.

Special to The Daily
IOWA CITY-Michigan's sopho-
more-laden gymnastics team is
cast in the "dark horse" role here
today as the Big Ten Meet begins.
Beginning this season the Wol-
verines, who finished second last
year, were picked as the favorites
to cap the title. However, the loss
of its captain and top point-getter,
Ed Gagnier, has put the team out
of the running according to the
consensus here.
Seeded ahead of Michigan are
Illinois and Iowa, with Michigan
State predicted for a close fourth.
Loken Picks Illini
Wolverine gymnastics coach
Newt Loken sees Illinois as "the
team to beat," but he added: "Be-
ing in its own gym will definitely
help Iowa."
The Hawkeyes boast the only
unbeaten record in the Conference
and their wins include a triumph
over Illinois.
Loken admits that Michigan
doesn't have the "big guns" like
Illinois' Abe Grossfeld and John,
Davis, Michigan State's Stan Tar-

T

shis or Iowa's Ted Segura and
Steffan Carlsson.
The gym coach, however, went
on to say: "The meet is not de-
cided from first place finishes only.
It is the depth that determines the
champion and although we lack
the first place stars, our depth will
keep us in the running."
By depth Loken was referring to

his senior-less team of junior Jim
Hayslett and the spectacular soph-
omores, Wolf Dozauer, Nino Mar-
ion, Barry Feinberg and Bill Skin-
ner.
Skinner Ready
Skinner specializes in tumbling
and his newest addition to his bag
of tricks, a double reverse som-
mersault twister should cut him

Phi Delts Ca
Fraternity 1
Phi Delta Theta added the in-
door track title to its growing
number of I-M trophies by win-
ning last night's fraternity finals
at Yost Field House.
Varsity cager Terry Miller cap-
tured two firsts and set a new
record as the Phi Delts earned
19 points, good enough to give
them a five-point bulge over sec-
ond place Lambda Chi Alpha.
Following the first two teams
were Sigma Phi and Sigma Al-
pha Epsilon each with ten points.
Sigma Alpha Mu, with eight
points, was fifth.
Records in the broad jump and
the pole vault events also were
broken.

7rack Meet
The shot put turned out to be
the closest contest of the night
as only two feet separated the
first four finishers. Tom Wilson
of the Phi Delts came out on top
of the scramble with a toss of
40'11112".
The mile run was turned into
a runaway by a combination of
fine running by the winner, Fred
Seewald of Sigma Phi and a lack
of pressure from opponents.

Michigan's attack.
All Around Stars
Dozauer, Marion and Hayslet
will represent Michigan in the all
around event while Stall and Fein
berg will also compete in all the
events, but since only three tean
entries are allowed, their point:

event.
Michigan's only possible fir
comes in the trampoline veer
where Ed Cole last year's Big Te
champion will strive to overcomn
the effects of a recent ankle sprai
and retain his title.
Besides the top four teams tli
only noticeable threat is expecte
to come from Minnesota. Tb
Gophers have a good all-aroun

cellent tumbler in Jerry Lynch.

ON THEIR WAY -- Four eager swimmers get prepared to start
the grueling 1500-meters in the NCAA meet which started last
night at the Varsity Exhibition Pool. Bill Steuart; the eventual
winner, is second from the left.

MANN-KIPHUTH COMPETITION:
Rival Coaches Meet in Swim Finals

Your best buy is a giant twelve-inch

l

By CHUCK KOZOLL
Two deans of American swim-
ming, Bob Kiphuth of Yale and
Matt Mann of Oklahoma, domi-
nated the coaching scene last
night.
Meeting for the 40th time since
Kiphuth succeeded Mann as Yale
coach, the two veteran mentors
found themselves cast in second-
kry roles behind the favored Wol-
verine team.
Mann, "guardian angel of the
NCAA meet" has begun construc-
tion of a swimming dynasty in
Oklahoma which may match Big
Ten teams in years to come.
"We want more swimming com-
petition, and a lot more pools if we
are to scare Michigan," noted the
former "M" coach.
Working on all schools in the
Big Eight Conference, Mann has
stirred up great interest in the
sport. Proof of the Mann influence
is the balance in the meet by
Oklahoma as represented by Larry
Lermo's victory in his heat of the
1500-meter event.
Former Pupil
Watching a former pupil, now
coach, Mann noted former free-
styler Gus Stager, who swam on
the 1947-50 teams and was an
Olympic hopeful.
"He's my biggest booster" was
Stager's appraisal of Mann.
Bowling Green Coach Sam
Cooper, whose teams have been

Mid-American Conference cham-
pions for three past years, saw the
Mann-power as a force in building
Michigan into a powerful swim-
ming state.
Kiphuth, whose Yale squads
haven't felt defeat in 145 dual
contests, recalls that Mann once
specialized in coaching six teams
simultaneously.
Kiphuth predicted that the
Mann contingent would wage a
tight battle with Michigan State
and his own Ivy League team to
follow up the dominant Michigan
squad.

Adding to the color provided by
the two rivals and the first pres-
entation of the National Collegiate
and Scholastic Swimming Trophy.
It went to Edward T. Kennedy,.
retired swimming coach from
Columbia.
In an afternoon election, the
NCAA coaches chose Fred Lanoue,
Georgia Tech, as president; Joe
Rogers, University, of Massachu-
setts, first vice-president; Charles
McCaffree, Michigan State, second
vice-president; and Ted Webster,
Syracuse, secretary-treasurer,

Wolverines Enter Pearson in Nationals;
Begins Bid for 130-lb. Mat Title Today

By AL JONES
Michigan's one-man wrestling
team will begin his battle for an
NCAA title today at Laramie,
Wyo.
Max Pearson, the Michigan mat
captain and only Wolverine
grappler entered in the national
meet, will begin the drive toward
the 130-lb. title in the preliminary
matches this afternoon. The finals
will be held tomorrow.
Pearson and his coach, Cliff
Keen, left yesterday for the Wyo-
J ming campus, and will be there
until Sunday.
Y Last College Meet
This will be the last collegiate
meet for the 'M' senior, and will
constitute a final challenge to
his wrestling ability.
Pearson ranks among the best
of the many great wrestlers that
Keen has tutored at Michigan in
his 32-year coaching tenure.
Last year Pearson was forced to
settle for the 130-lb. runner-up
spot in the NCAA meet, as he lost

out to Penn State's Johnny John-
ston, 7-5, in the finals.
In Big Ten action, the Michigan
senior had won two Conference
titles in a row, and was selected
the "Outstanding Wrestler" in
this year's Big Ten meet.
The last Michigan wrestler to
take an NCAA title was also a
130-lb. competitor - Skip Nalan
-who won the title in 1953 and
1954.

Since then many Wolverines -
including Dan Deppe, Andy Kaul,
Frank Hirt, Jack Marchello, and
Mike Rodriguez - have all fallen
just short of the mark. All of these
Michigan stars were Big Ten
titlists, and placed high in the
nationals.
Pearson will be in the Michigan
tradition, as the Wolverines al-
ways send at least one strong con-
tender to the NCAA meet.

"Jockey brand underwear
made me a brighter star!"
;" "You can't play Cyrano if you wear baggy underwear!' the
drama coach told me. That was the day I bought my first pair
of Jockey briefs. Quel fit! Quel comfort! I looked better and,
amazingly, even my superb acting improved. Jockey briefs had
made a dramatic change in my career!
'Now I get all the starring roles, thanks to comfortable
Jockey brand underwear. And I wouldn't think of accepting a
substitute. You see, only genuine Jockey brand briefs are tai-
lored from 13 separate, individually shaped pieces. That is the
reason they give you such a smooth, comfortable fit!"
Jockey briefs are the most
copied underwear in the
world. Be sure you getf
genuine Jockey brand-
they're tailored to fit.
