Lewis Sparkles
In Michigan Loss

WIHL Ends Final Season;
League Title Still Doubtful

-

By JEFF WEISS

A cold shooting touch from the
floor accounted for Michigan's 80-
69 loss to Minnesota Monday night.
The Wolverines made only 27
of 96 shots from the floor for a
poor 29 percent shooting average.
Gymnas ts
Only Seek
Perfecton
Many people who have attended
gymnastic meets have often won-
dered what the performing gym-
nast thinks of as he goes through
his strenuous and sometimes peri-
lous routines.
The average person would think
that fear would be on his mind
as he swings and flips on the high
bar or twists and tumbles in mid-
air off the trampoline, but ac-
cording to Michigan gymnasts this
is not the case.
"Doing my routine the best I
can do is the thing utmost in my
mind," said Ed Gagnier, Michigan
captain. "The only fear I have is
that I will not do my best."
Chuck ,Clarkson, Wolverine
trampolinist, who earlier in the
season acquired 28 stitches follow-
ing a fall on the trampoline said,
"I don't think of fear when I
perform. I am more concerned
with doing a perfect as possible
routine.
Another gymnast, Jim Hayslett,
enjoys performing on the high bar
although he thinks it is the most
perilous event.
Hayslett said, "Gymnastic events
go so quickly that I haven't qny
time to worry about anything but
the quality of my performance."
The gymnastic team which is
unbeaten so far this season has a
home meet this Saturday. They
will meet the University of Chi-
cago at 4 p.m. in the main gym of
the I-M building.

Only their great foul shooting kept
them in the game.
Lack of a strong bench was one
of the principal reasons for defeat.
Coach Bill Perigo could not put in
any strong substitute for his
slumping forwards. "I could only
leave them in there and hope,"
he said.
Lewis Sparkles
The one bright spot for Michi-
gan was the sparkling play of
guard Jack Lewis. The 6'2" back-
court man scored 19 points. He hit
on 8 of 14 from the floor, and 3
of 4 foul shots to give him the
best effort this season.
This. year Lewis' play-making
has helped make the Wolverines
a title contender. Although a little
Correction
"This Week in Sports" in
Tuesday's Daily incorrectly
stated that Michigan's gymnas-
tics team would meet Navy Pier
Friday. The only gymnastics
meet this weekend will be with
Chicago here Saturday immedi-
ately following the swimming
meet.
slow afoot, he makes up for this
with his aggressive style of play.
He also help Michigan off the
boards since he is a strong; re-
bounder for his size.,
Perigo says that Lewis has now
reached his playing peak. With
five conference -games coming up
on the road, Lewis' playing at top
form should brighten the Wolver-
ines chances in the tight confer-
ence battle.
Point Getter
Lewis kept Michigan in the Min-
nesota game through aggressive
play-making. His high scoring ef-
fort can be traced to diligent prac-
tice before each game. Lewis takes
about 50 practice jump shots and
has developed a very potent scor-
ing weapon.
In Monday night's game Lewis
scored most of his points from the
' outside. His. long jump shot was
I deadly.

As the WIHL Hockey League
enters the last month of its short
and unsuccessful existence, the
outcome of the championship race
remains in doubt.
Since the Wolverines have al-
ready been mathematically elim-
inated from title contention, the
remainder of the season should
serve as an indication of Michigan
h o p e s for the forth-coming
season.
Wolverine championship hopes
looked dim as early as Christmas
vacation. The inexperienced puck-
men were faced with six games
totaling half of a possible 24
points before the turn of the New
Year.
This was the turning point of
the season as the Wolverines were
able to pick up only four out of a
possible twelve points. Coach Ren-
frew confirmed this and added,
"Mid-semesters made it tough on
the boys."
In this period Michigan lost two

games to Denver 7-6 and 3-2.
Renfrew revealed, "This was the
Wolverines' low point of the
season."
Although it came too late, the
Wolverines hit their high point of
the season Saturday night when
they scored four goals in the last
period to defeat Minnesota 4-2.
Last year's WIHL champions,
Colorado College has also, had a
troublesome season. An over-
whelming choice to repeat as
champs they have been lodged in
second place for the whole season.
This weekend they hit their peak
of the season with twin victories
over North Dakota 7-1 and 9-2.
They are now tied with Denver for
first place. "Colorado should now
repeat as champions," believes
Renfrew.
Colorado College and Denver
both have four points remaining
which should decide the title.
North Dakota and Minnesota are
in third and fourth places respec-
tiVely and are still in contention.
Concerning Minnesota, there
has been a verbal battle going on
between Michigan Coach Al Ren-
frew, and Minnesota Athletic Di-
rector Ike Armstrong over the
Wolverine stalling tactics in Sat-
urday night's game.
Renfrew defended his stalling
tactics in the game, as being
necessary because of an injury to
Goalie Ross Childs. Renfrew said
that Childs was cut around the
face and upper lip, and that he
"needed a time out to regain his
senses."

MY CLOSEST SHAVE REER e"""
"My closest shave was during the first try at a speed

Pilot Bill Bridgeman, author of The Lonely Sky. "A
special B-29 dropped me like a bomb at 30,000 feet...
I turned on my rockets and climbed to 40,000. ..when
suddenly all power failed. Rocket power, cabin pres-

over so I couldn't see. Finally I got the radio going on an
emergency battery . .. and a pilot in a chase
plane talked me down to a blind landing 1"

The small men stole the show
from the long and lanky during
last night's round of I-M Inter-
fraternity basketball.
In the opening game Sigma
Chi's Bob McCollum, 5'11", be-
fuddled Alpha Sigma Phi with his
Cousy-like, behind the back passes
and dribbling prowess as the Sig-
ma Chi's chalked up an easy 73-
20 victory. McCollum assisted
teammates John Spidel and Guy
Briggs into double scoring figures
and also managed to score 27
points himself, the high for the
night. Nick Mitea and Gordon

Morrow rounded out the Sigma
Chi's well-balanced attack.
Tau Delta Phi's Si Coleman,
5'8", sank a lone one-hander from
behind the key to give the Tau
Delt's a 27-25 sudden death over-
time victory over Pi Lambda Phi.
Paul Van Colen, another "small
man" sparked Sigma Phi Epsilon's
69-16 victory over T.K.E. His
deadly one-handed set netted him
22 points.
Sigma Nu's Win
Other lopsided scores turned in
were Sigma Nu's 59-13 win over
Psi Upsilon; Phi Delta Theta's 60-
16 victory over D.K.E.; Chi Phi's
43-15 over Sigma Phi; Z.B.T.'s

73-19 over Triangle and A.T.O.'s
68-19 win over Acacia.
Delta Tau Delta also defeated
Phi Kappa Tau, 45-29; Beta Theta
Pi beat Trigon, 29-22; Kappa Sig-
man defeated Theta Xi, 23-12;
Phi Kappa Psi squeaked to a 27-
25 win over Chi Phi; Phi Sigma
Kappa downed Theta Delta Chi, 34-
12; Sigma Alpha Epsilon beat Zeta
Psi, 53-15; Alpha Delta Phi beat
Sigma Alpha Mu 36-31; Delta
Sigma Phi topped Phi Sigma Del-
ta, 26-18; Delta Upsilon over Phi

VERSATILE DIVING COACH:
Harlan Revises Book on Swimming

do you want to be
on the inside of the,
Michigan.Sports
scene ?

By ROGER BARNES
Pouring over hundreds of feet
of film and pages of notes, Michi-
gan's diving coach, Bruce Harlan,
finds himself in the position of
every journalist - that of ap-
proaching deadline.
As a co-author of "Swimming
and Diving," Harlan is completing
a revision of the book. Originally
intended as an instruction book
for competitive swimming and
diving, the book is expected to
have widespread use in both
America and Europe as well as in
physical education courses in many
colleges.
15 Main Dives
Harlan's main objectives in the
revised section are to elaborate
on about 15 dives that have been
recently invented, changed or
newly recognized. Due to an influx
of foreign divers to this country

and the participation of the
United States in the Olympics,
many dives which have been ac-
cepted in Europe for many years
are just now finding their way to
America.
In addition, many dives have
been invented or changed becaidse
of improvement in diving boards,
techniques, and the skill of the
divers.
Harlan also states that new
methods for teaching have been
developed and need to be included
in the book. Examples are the
trampoline, visual film aids, and
what is known as a diving sand
pit. This consists of a diving board
mounted above a sand pit upon
which the diver can execute dives,
jumping feet first into the sand.
Aids for Diving
An excellent feature of the div-
ing section will be its easily-fol-
