Michigan, believe it or not, has
its own version of Alabama's Bear
Bryant Dormitory. Well, almost.
There's this house on Packard,
see. It's kind of a big, old place
right nearby Friendly Ralph's,
and it's close enough to the Ath-
letic Campus that all a guy has
to do is get up, fall out of the
door and roll down State Street
to his practice session. .
For as far back as its present
denizens can remember, the es-
tablishment has been inhabited
by athletes. Two sets of room-
mates ago, a bunch of swimmers
had the lease. Last year, it was
wrestlers, with NCAA champ Jim
Kamman and Big Ten runnerup
Burt Merical among them.
This year, it's wrestlers again.
And the guy with the season's top
billing is Fred Stehman, who has
started off this, his senior year,
by pinning two of his first three
opponents at 152-pounds.
Med School Next
But when Stehman sits in the
living room, doing some steady
booking, he looks to all the world
like the. studious type who's al-
ready been accepted into Med
School and wants to make sure
he graduates. And that, too, is
"Last October I was admitted
to the University's M e d i c a l
School," he admits, a little em-
barrassed ."I guess I never out-
grew the kid's dream of wanting
to be a doctor."
His father was a doctor, too,
back home around Okemos, out-
side of Lansing, but of a differ-
ent sort. "Dad went into psychia-
try, and never actually practiced
medicine," he recalls. "Somehow
I never got inclined towards that
But he did get inclined towards
lots of other things, as his history
major and Russian ( - RUS-
SIAN?) cognate indicate. "Our
high school had all these kids
whose parents were faculty mem-
bers at State," he says, "so every-
thing was pretty academically or-
iented. I ended up in the same
clubs and all that I suppose ev-
eryone else here at the University
Yet, unlike most of the others
here, he was also a three-sport
man in his highsschool days -
wrestling, of course, football, and
"My brother was a big man at
the school in basketball," remem-
bers Stehman, "so I decided it
wasn't for me. I wasn't heavy
enough to excel in football, and
our school had no swimming or
gymnasitcs, so I sort of gravitat-
ed to wrestling."
Just because he wasn't heavy
enough for the gridiron, though,
doesn't mean he didn't go all out.

"In my sophomore year I was

"You see, I was one of the

Stehman's real interest in
wrestling came in his sophomore
year. "We got a new coach then,"
he . recalls, "and he was really
good. Unfortunately, we didn't do
too well at first, but by our senior
year we were third in the state.
"You know," he continues, "it's
