Michigan Wrestlers Travel to Cornell

Michigan's hockey team meets
a young squad from McGill Uni-
versity in its home opener at 8
p.m. in the Coliseum,
Admission is $.60 for students
and $1.00 for the general public.
Both Lose to Toronto
McGill's inexperienced team has'
played only one game this season
-an 11-3 loss to the powerful Uni-
versity of Toronto. Michigan, too,
lost to Toronto, 7-2.
The youthful Canadian squad
will be battling a scarred Michi-
gan team. Returning to the ice
tonight for Michigan will be Steve
Bochen, who is still recuperating
from a broken wrist, and Pat

Cushing, who will be after the
puck for the first time sinice he
received a shoulder separation in
the Toronto game.
Don Gourley, also back in shape
after a shoulder injury, will be
ready for action. Only Jay Katz,
who is still out with an ir Iurted
ankle, will not dress for the game.
White at Center
Starting at center'will be Bob
White, one of the classiest players
on the team. At defense will be
Barrie Hayton and Bobbie Watt.
Cushing will see action at left
wing, while sophomore Dale Ma'-
Donald will be at right wing.
Bochen, still playing with a lght
cast on his wrist, will alternate
with Courley at right wing on the
second line with John Hutton at
center and Gary Mattson at left
wing. Guarding the home net will
be Jim Coyle, a promising sopho-
Ross Childs, switched from goal-
tender to forward because of the
recent multitude of injuries, should
see plenty 'of action.
Not All Healed
Coach Al Renfrew, who has
been nursing his tender team, ad-
mits that all the aches and pains
have not completely healed.
"We're just getting back into
shape. Most of the kids that have
been injured have just returned.
Jim Coyle is coming along well
behind the nets, so Childs will
probably be at forward the rest of
the year," bewailed Renfrew.
He concluded, "We'll have to
stay healthy if we're going to do
anything at all. That'll be the key
to our success."

Michigan's wrestling team be-
gins one of the toughest dual meet
schedules in its colorful history to-
night as it takes on Cornell before
a capacity crowd of 4,500 wres-
tling-hungry fans in Ithaca, N.Y.
The Big Red, coached by Jim
Miller and boasting two returning
Eastern champions in Dave Dun-
lop and Dave Auble, are picked by
many as the best mat squad in
the country.
Loaded with Vets
In addition to Auble, who has
chances of going down in the
record books as Cornell's greatest
grappler, Cornell is packed with
veterans including George Willis
and Steve Friedman, who at pres-
ent is unbeaten in dual meet com-

Michigan in comparison has
only three returning lettermen:
senior captain Larry Murray, and
juniors Mike Hoyles and Fred Olm.
The balance of the Wolverine;
squad is made up of sophomores
untried as yet in varsity competi-
tion, who, according to mat coach
Cliff Keen, "are green, but ready
to fight."
The Wolverines' success this
weekend will )also be dependent on
how well the injury-plagued wres-
tlers have healed. This winter's
injuries have run all the way from
Murray's tender knee cartilage to
Jim Agnew's battered rib cage.
In addition to Murray, who will
wrestle in the 130-lb. weight divi-

sion, Keen plans on starting Hoyles
against Auble in the 123-lb. class,
Agnew at 137 pounds, Jim Blaker
at 147, and Don Corriere at 157.
Fronezak Also Starts
Also starting for Michigan will
be Dick Fronczak, who will en-
counter probably the best man he
will face during his college career
in the person of Friedman.
Rounding out the Michigan ag-
gregation will be Dennis Fitz-
gerald starting at 177 and Olm at
the unlimited heavyweight divi-
Tomorrow the Wolverines travel
to New Brunswick, N.J., to tangle
with Rutgers, rated behind only
Cornell and Lehigh in the East.
