Two 'M' Matmen Compete in Nationals

CARRYING THEIR TEAMS' HOPES -- Bill Steuart (left), Michigan State's foremost freestyle
swimmer, has a good chance to successfully def end his NCAA 1,500-meter title when that event
is run off this afternoon at Ithaca. Michigan wrestler Karl Fink (right), one of two Wolverines
competing at Iowa City this weekend in the na tional mat meet, is a darkhorse in the running for
177-lb. honors.
Murphy Predicts Successful Season
For Depth-Laden 'M' Tennis Team

Michigan's two-man wrestling
delegation, along with Coach Cliff
Keen, flew out to Iowa City yester-
day to participate in the nation's
biggest and best mat tournament,
the NCAA championship meet.
Awards for champions in each
weightrdivision; plus a trophy for
the best team performance, will be
given out at the conclusion of the
three-day affair, which starts to-
day and ends Saturday. Wrestlers
from an estimated 50 schools will

With eight Michigan entries
possible, sophomores Dennis Fitt-
gerald and Karl Fink are the only
Wolverine contestants, so it's ob-
vious Michigan is not trying for
the team title.
In fact, only once during Keene's
33-year tenure has a full team
of Wolverines competed in the
Nationals "And that time, we fin-
ished second," Keen said.
After the Big Ten meet there
were as many as five Michigan
wrestlers being considered for the
NCAA meet. But Mike Hoyles (Big
Ten '123-lb. runnerup) decided in
favor of studies. Larry Murray
(third-place winner at 130) also
decided not to go.
Corriere Injured
Then 157-lb. Don Corriere
(Michigan's only Big Ten cham-
pion) received a chest injury and
had to stay home. That left Fitz-
gerald and Fink, who will be trying

for individual honors at 167 and
177 pounds, respectively.
Fitzgerald, in his last visit to
Iowa's commodious 16,000-seat
field house, finished second to
Michigan State's Jim Ferguson in
the title match at 167, but looked
impressive while winning his three'
preliminary bouts. Chances' are
that Oklahoma State's Duane
Murty will emerge as national
champ at this weight come Satur-
day night.
Fink was beaten by nemesis Tom

and Big Eight 177-1b. divisions are
not too strong this year, and Fink
could finish rather high.
Keen says that Oklahoma State,
Big Eight team titlist, should win
the NCAA crown again. Keen's
alma mater has won the Nationals
in four of the last five years. Two
other Big Eight teams, Oklahoma
and Iowa State, should also finish
well. Minnesota and host Iowa

Sophomores To Compose
'M' Outfield This Spring



With only one outfielder re-
turning from last year's team, a
flood of sophomores seem destined
to roam the outer regions of
Ferry Field for the Michigan
baseball team this spring.
Just a few months ago it looked
as if Michigan would have one of
the strongest outfield crews in
recent years with John Herrn-
stein, Ralph Hutchings, and Jack
Mogk scheduled to fill starting
roles. But now only Mogk re-
Herrnstein signed a profession-
al contract for a reported $55,000
and now is training with the
Phillies' top farm club, the Buf-
falo Bisons of the International
League. Hutchings, who was cap-
tain-elect of the Wolverine nine,
was declared ineligible last month
because of scholastic difficulties.
Batted .333 Last Year
Mogk, a junior, appeared in
nine Big Ten games last year,
mostly in a reserve role, and
posted a .333 batting average, the
highest on the squad.
The top candidates to take the

outfield positions alongside of
Mogk are sophomores John Hal-
stead and John Danovich. Hal-
stead, who played second string
end on the Michigan football
team last fall, needs no introduc-
tion to local fans.
Danovich, an Ann Arbor prod-
uct, is a bespectacled left-handed
Others in Running
To back up this threesome
Michigan Coach Don Lund will
probably move up sophomores
Barry Marshall from the infield
and Wilbur Franklin from be-
hind the plate, both of whom
could conceivably push one of
the trio out of a job.
As usual, the Michigan back-
stop position is being handled by
members of the Wolverine grid
squad. Starting at the position
will be Jim Dickey, who played
center for Bennie Oosterbaan last
fall. A senior, the veteran catcher
was the Big Ten's leading fielder
at his position last year and
drove in more runs than any one
on the squad.
Backing Dickey up is another
grid center, Dick Syring, who in
addition to Franklin, will play
halfback for Bump Elliott this
