Coach Bill Meade's SaluVis produced 11 scorers to eiht point-getters for Charley Pond's lllini. Gymnastics, unlike other iports, pas no attention to balanced scoring or depth. It's quality that counts in j;mna,tics. ITie lllini had the qualitv in the persons of Abie Grossfcld and Don Tonrv, each of whom won two events as they split 33' points. Allen Hancv also came up with two seconds for eight points. Bundin Leonard Kalakian of SIU was the mvt popular performer as he won the trampoline and tumbling events and finished second in free exercise for 16 points.
