Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan
State may have upset the Wol-
verines in football, but in no way
did they repeat that feat against
the fired-up gymnasts of Michi-
;an. Even the partisan Spartan
crowd showed their appreciation
f a job well done as the Spar-
tans were outclassed by a score
of 161.90 to 150.35.
Sid Jensen and Rick McCurdy,
Michigan' two all-arounders, per-
formed in their usual style with
Jensen averaging better than nine
points for each of the six events
and McCurdy close behind with an
3.8 average. After the meet Cap-
tain Ron Rapper admitted, "With-
out those two this team would
_otamount to very much."
The high point of the meet hasd
to be the performance of soph-
omore Ted Marti, who posted a

.3 score in the horizontal bar
wvent. Both Rapper and Coach
Newt Loken expressed their 1;'ea-
sure at Marti's showing and their
hope that once he has hit the
nine-plus plateau he will remain
there. In that horizontal bar event
Michigan posted a score of 27.7,
which was the highest of eiCher
teamn in any events. Along with
Marti's 9.3 were Jensen's 9.25 anid
McCurdy's 9.15.
The Wolverines also finished
strong in the free exercise, rings
and parallel bar contests. In the
free exercise, George Huntzicker
* received a large ovation as he skill-
fully performed his difficult rou-
tine and achieved a score of 9.3.
Also contributing with a fine ex-
hibition in the event was Jensen
who posted a score of 9.15.
1 In the rings, Jensen, who con-
siders this event one of'his strong-
Sr points, excelled with a score
;f 9.20 and had the honor of re-
ceiving a fine ovation from the
hometown crowd. McCurdy placed

third in the event overall with an
B.95 total.
Ron Raper specializes :n the
parallel bars event and once a^:n
gave a demonstration of his new
move-a one arm balance followcd
by a pirouette-to post the highest
individual score of the meet. The
versatile Jensen showed his dex-
terity in still another event as the
judges gave him a 9.25 for his
performance.
While Loken was happy with the
total team performance he was
disturbed by the showing of his
sidehorse men. The team scored
only 25.7, which was well over a
point lower than their total in any
other event. "We were on Cloud
Nine after scoring over 27 points
on the side horse against Eastern
Michigan so naturally *oday we
were a bit disappointed. We know
we can score better than 27 points
again," said Loken.
Besides working with his side
horse team, Loken has another
happier problem on his hands- a

surprisingly good showing by men
who did not make the regular line-
ups. Loken scheduled one exhibi-
tionist in each event simply to
give them some exposure. They
were scored but their scores did
not count in the competition.
There were scores like 9.10 by
Bill Mackie in floor exercise and
8.8 by Ken Saffier in the s i d e
horse which would have been good
enough to place in the top three
had they been counted.
For Michigan State there were
two men in particular, who per-
formed well. Rick Murahata, fin-
ished with a score of 9.00 in both
the vault and the floor exercise.
In addition, Charlie Morse came'
up with showings of 9.15 in three
different events: the side horse,
rings and the parallel bars. How-,
ever, the scores achieved by their
two all-arounders was not nearly
as high as those of the Wolver-
ines.
With the first Big Ten meet for
the Wolverines over, Rapper feels

that Illinois and defending na-
tional champions, Iowa, would
give Michigan the most trouble
this year. When asked if his team
would be making the trip to the
nat'onal championship in Phil-
adelphia, Rapper replied without
any hesitation, "You bet."

meetrecord to a mediocre 2-3-1.
The Boilermakers, who did not
score a point in the Big Ten
championship a year ago, alter-
nated bout wins with the Wolver-
ines until the 177 pound class.
There Roger Foszcz put Purdue
on top for the first time, 14-12,
with a pin at the buzzer.
A CONVINCING win by Jesse
Rawls, wrestling up a weight from
his accustomed 177 position be-
cause of heavyweight Rick Bol-
house's injured ribs, regained the
lead for Michigan 15-14.
The final bout and meet result
came with only 20 seconds left in
the afternoon's action. Purdue's
Mike C."qua and Therlon Harris
were deadlockset. with one of Hfar-
ris' points due to riding time. With

the crowd roaring for Harris to
hang on for the tie, he was for
stalling. Cerque then shot in for
a akedown. Harris quickly es-
caped ,but the bout and meet were
over.
The meet could well have been
over long before the heavyweight
class, except for one thing. "We
were flat-not good enough or
sharp enough to win," wrestling
coach Cliff Keen said. "It's the
first time in 25 years that we've
lost to Purdue. Purdue was men-
tally sharp. Maybe we underes-
timated them."
Purdue was -coming off a pre-
vious day's trouncing by Midwest
Open champs Michigan State.
When 118 pound Jerry Hoddy
completely controlled his match
against Joe Bensen, it looked like

the 24-year-old rerun would get
another go around.
Even when Tim Cech lost a
close match in the next weight
division to bring the score even,
the portent was not recognized.
All the scoring came in the third
period, as Cech escaped with 2:25
to go. Shortly after, Cech slipped
back slightly as Bill Andrew shot
in for a single leg takedown and
then a predicament. Cech escaped,
was again brought down, and es-
Uaped once more, gaining one
point riding for a bout tally of
6-4.
Ty Belknap recaptured the lead
for the Wolverines, wrestling
strongly against Bernie Graser for
a 10-4 win.
purdue eeked out a riding time
win at 142 to make the score 6
even. Michigan's Mark King was
up in the second period, but Steve
Funk got away after 23 seconds.
King brought him down to grab
the lead, 2-1. With only 19 sec-
onds left in that period, Funk es-
caped off the mat. He rode King
in the third tb erase King's time
and gain one point riding.
THE HIGH POINT of the meet
for Michigan was Lane Headrick's
10-4 victory against Gary Drury.
After piling up a 6-2 lead, Head-
rick came close to a fall, but had
to settle for a predicament.

A loss by Jim Sanger and an
8-3 win by Tom Quinn set the
meet score at 12-9 Michigan and
forced a conference on the side-
lines between the two Michigan
coaches and the four wrestlers
Mary Pushman, Rawls, Harris, an
Jim Thomas, who had weighed
in for the top three spots.
Consequently Pushman went at
177, Rawls at 190, and Harris at
heavyweight.
"We went as we did," Keen ex-
plained, "because we knew we hac
to have 'two wins at the end for
the meet victory. You'd think It
would be impossible to lose two,"
he added.
