Matmen Attempt Rebound Against Purdue

For Michigan's wrestling team,
the stage is set for history to re-
peat itself.
In 1966, Michigan had rolled up
a string of 34 straight dual meet
But this suffered an ubrupt
termination at the hands of a
good Minnesota squad.
The next week, on Jan. 29, pit-
iful Purdue went home on the
nil side of a 32-0 score as the}
Wolverines began to pile up'
another set of consecutive tri-
Las~t Monday that same win
streak was stopped at 21 byhnewly
top-ranked Oklahoma for Michi-
gan's second defeat in the last
57 starts.
This afternoon Purdue is back,
and the Wolverine wrestlers are
ready to get another big string
started in a big way.

The Boilermakers bring a team
that has been unimpressive in
competition so far this season,
losing to McMurray College,
Northwestern, and Minnesota.
They have had to spread their
talent thinly among the weight
divisions, at times forfeiting in
certain classes.
Besidertheir personnel problems,
they were in East Lansing last
night to face MSU. The Spartans
have been ranked in the top five
since the beginning of the sea-
son, and Purdue will be feeling
the effects of a tough schedule
in the meet this afternoon.
In a line,-upthat lacks overall
strength as well as individual
stars, Purdue has been using Kim
Dries at heavyweight, Frank
Spinka at 177, and Ken Gregory
at 167.
In the middle weights, 160 shows

Of Points, Candles .. .
And English 123
"Always get to the point. You've got to get to the point. I always
get to the point when I write so you can do it too. That's the only
way to write, getting to the point, you know."
I remember these words of wisdom, can't really forget them.
Long ago when I was a freshman I heard them three days a week
for fifteen consecutive weeks They were the first tidbits of
knowledge I picked up in Ann Arbor. The course, of course, was
English 123 - the ABC's of high powered writing so to speak.
Every dumb freshman at this University has to take it. The
bright boys can get out of it by sliding into honors. For these para-
gons of scholastic virtue, the course of study is Homer in the morn-
ing, Virgil in the afternoon and Socrates in the evening. They elect
great books 191.
But if your English verbal score falls somewhat on the shady
side of 750 the University provides you with a diet of entirely dif-
ferent calories. Like the draft, English 123 sucks up any bewildered-
looking Lit school freshman and completely indoctrinates him into
the system.
The course is so popular that the University runs over forty
sections of it simultaneously. Things are kept quite basic for the
convenience of the flustered yearling by having each class meet at
8:00 a.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It's hard to mess
up a schedule like this but invariably one or two of the rookies will
forget and "sleep in by mistake."
You would be amazed to see how many times this mistake
actually occurred but, like I said, many of the kids in this course
were veritable idiots and accidents do happen. Myself, I was lucky.
For a roommate I had a former farmboy and he would always
bounce out of bed at 5:30, except for Sunday when he would sleep
in until 7:00. With him around I never missed it, thank goodness.
Since I have a knack for getting to the point with real speed I
graduated cum laude from the course. A former Yale man with dark
glasses, black loafers and white socks prodded me on to fame. He
used to sit on the desk, swing his legs around (like teaching fellows
always do) and invoke the muse for me. It was easy to do well, and
you too can have success if you follow these simple instructions:
(1) Always get to the point and never write anything which
is redundant. When you write an article never mention anything
twice and get right into the nitty-gritty of it. If you can do this;
that is, stick to the point and never write anything twice, you will
avoid being redundant. This, in turn, will have the consequence
of meaning you do not write anything twice and with practice
you soon will not be writing anything twice and with practice
you soon will not be writing anything twice which means you will
not only have successfully avoided redundancy but you will also
not be repeating yourself more than once.
(2) Always identify the speaker immediately and don't ramble.
The speaker should preferably be identified while you are in the
act of getting to the point. For example, in the quotation of my
first paragraph of this column you find the words of my English
123 teaching fellow. As for rambling, don't. It's bad to ramble
because the body of your paper will then lack cohesiveness and
no one will read it.
While we are on the subject of writing, take a good look at a
candlestick. You will notice that candlesticks come in two varieties,
those that are beautiful and those that are ugly. My English 123
teaching fellow always lugged one of the two types into class with
him and made us describe it.
Of course, he was trying to expand our imaginations. What did
the candlestick make us think of and all that? I think on the side
he was picking up a masters in psychology but one day it reminded
me of a football game
You remember that day we beat Oregon State in the Rose Bowl,
don't you? Mel Anthony ran for the roses three times and became
the first player to ever rack up eighteen points in that game. I didn't
know it at the time but that was when the abstract literary vein in
me beginning to pop out.
But enough of this, I want to get back to the evils of rambling
around in your writing. Never ramble, after much practice mixed
in along with tears and toils you will purge yourself, like what Stalin
was so expert atof rambling.
(3) Always have a conclusion and never leave the reader
hanging in the air.
