more this semester.
The club, which offers assistance

By DAVE LYON
Michigan's 1957-58 wrestling
accomplishments can be told more
in terms of individual grapplers
than of the team.
Although Coach Cliff Keen's
mat squad posted only a 3-6-1
dual meet record and finished'
tied for fifth in the Big Ten meet,
there were several ways in which
a pair of individuals distingushed
themselves.
Senior Max Pearson, one of
Michigan's greatest wrestlers, last
season competed ,in weight' divi-
sions ranging from 130 to 147
pounds, but was at his best at 130.
Tops Stroud for Title
The genial captain had some
difficulties early in the season, but
became sharper as time wore on.
He was never better than in the
Big Ten meet, as he roared through
preliminary matches and -then
hung a 5-2 decision'on Michigan
State's Don Stroud for the 130-lb.
title.
Prior to the Conference meet,
Stroud had been beaten only once
during the (season, that by ; 9-2
decision to Pearson in a MVichigan-
MSU dual meet.
Voted Outstanding
Big Ten mat coaches recognized
Pearson's impressive performance
in the Conference meet by voting
him "Outstanding Wrestler of the.
Tournament."
After his Big Ten meet triumph,
Pearson went to the NCAA cham
pionship affair at Laramie, Wyo.,
as Michigan's only entry in that,
event. He disposed of the first

three opponents he faced and
gained the right to meet Iowa
State's undefeated Les Anderson
for the 130-lb..national title.
A fine finish gave Anderson four
quick points to make the final score
7-5. Ironically, this was the same
score by which Penn State's John-
ny Johnston had edged Pearson in
the NCAA 130-lb. final the year
before.
But all considered, the Michigan.
captain's season performance in
1958 was more than commendable.
Marchello Undefeated
There was another senior, Jack
Marchello, who at the start of
last season was hesitant about
wrestling at all, since he was car-
rying a heavy academic load. But
he decided in favor of mat compe-
tition and competed for the first
time in Michigan's second meet of
the season, against Indiana.
Marchello, wrestling at 167
pounds, shut out Hoosier Norm
Komorowski, 6-0, and then pro-
ceeded to run up an 11-match vic-
tory string climaxed by his win-
ning the Big Ten 167-pound cham-
pionship.
His victim In the Conference fi-
nals was Minnesota's'highly-rated
Bill Wright, beaten by the same 6-
0 score with which Marchello had
begun the season.
Declines NCAA Chance
The Wolverine grappler, having
realized his goal of regaining the
Big Ten championship he had won
in 1956, declined to go to the
NCAA because of his concern for
his studies.
Outside of Marehello and Pear-
son, however, Michigan's team was
not especially strong. This lack of
depth was most apparent in the
Big Ten meet, where despite the
two individualdchampions,nthe
Wolverine squad finished in a,
fifth-place tie.
Of Michigan's. 28 points in the
Conference affair, 26 of them were
the direct result of Marchello and
Pearson's net successes. The two
other Big Ten teams which had
two individual titlists each-Iowa
and Illinois-placed 1-2 in the
meet.

What depth Michigan had at the
season's start received a severe
jolt when veteran heavyweight
Steve Zervas was declared ineli-
gible for second-semester compe-
tition.
Replacing Zervas was Fred Olm,
and although he performed capab-
ly for his lack of experience, it is
easy to speculate that Zervas
would have done better.
The third-best Wolverine mat-
man of 1958 was junior Larry
Murray, who wrestled at various
tines at 123, 130, and 137 pounds.
Fails To Hit Peak
Karl Lutomski competed in the
177-1b. slot during the season, and
although at times he showed
flashes of good wrestling, he never
attained the peak he had reached
in the -1957 Big Ten champion-,
ships, when he finished third In
his weight division.
Mike Hoyles was Michigan's us-
ual entry in the 123-lb. class last
year. He suffered many close loss-
es by decision during the season,
improving slowly but steadily.
Keen filled his "trouble spots" at
147, and 157 pounds with Dick
Summerwill, Tom Leith, or Wayne
King. Summerwill, was unable to
win in competition, but Leith and
King showed promise by winning
about half their matches.
Outlook Encouraging
Despite the graduation of Mich-
igan's two best wrestlers, Marchel
1o and Pearson, last June, the out
look for Keen's 34th season at
Michigan is encouraging.
Among the many promising
sophomore standouts are Bart
Kruze and Gordon Swix at 123-
lbs.; Ambrose Wilbanks at 130;
Jay Young at 137; Jim Blaker and
Wilfred Hildebrand 'at ,147; Dick
Fronczak and Don Courriere at
157; Dennis Fitzgerald and Carl
Fink at 177; and heavyweight Guy
Curtis.
Many former high school cham-'
pions are included in this list, and
if most of these sophomores de-
ve1ap, Michigan could make -it in-
teresting for 'any other- Big Ten,
team -during the coming season.

DUAL-MEET THREAT - Larry Murray, captain of this year
wrestling team, is a rugged dual-meet, competitor. He didn't ma
his weight limit In the Big Ten last year, but should be a tit
contender this season.
A New Dean
IWCHIGAN HAS a new dean of coaches. For as many years as r
people connected with Michigan athletics can remember,
Fisher was the coach with the longest tenure. At the end of
baseball season Fisher's retirement was forced due to the 70-yr.

The team placed three members
on the All-Big Ten team: Tom
Athanas, William. Woodruff. and
Keith. Johnson. Athanas was alsoj
the Big Ten individual champion.

limit.
, Fisher had been coaching the "M" nine for 38 years. The
dean has been around almost as long. Cliff Keen will enter his 3
season this winter when the Michigan wrestlers take to the n
against Big Ten opponents.
In more ways tha length of tenure the two coaches are ea
comparable. Both can boast predominately winning teams through
the years. Keen has tutored six Conference championship teams.
Perhaps the most. marked resemblance between the two,
probably the most significant, is the youthfulness that they exh
for their age. Fisher, even last season at 70, was always out.on
diamond during practice. He would show his players how t'o pi
how to hit, and any other skills necessary. Keen can be found at e
practice session, dressed in his sweat suit, and out on the wrestling
going through the holds that he wants to teach.
This direct participation of 'the coach often makes the differe
between a good and an excellent team. To SHOW the boys rather I
TELL thei puts vitality in the learning process. It is far more effect
than the armchair techniques used-by most men that have been
the game over 30 years. -

IMAGINATION

Interest on All Levels ...

/

KEEN'S INTEREST in the grappling sport extends far beyon
college field. With the goal of building a stronger all-around in
in the sport on a nationwide level, he has taken part in pro
aimed at the high -,school and

junior high age groups.
His son, Jim, is a star on the
Ann Arbor High School team, and
Keen attends all of the high school
meets. As director of the. state-
wrestling meet this. past year he
acted as a smooth administrator
and an interested spectator from
the recruiting angle.
He has also shown great interest
in the AAU competition, and sends
his freshmen wrestlers to the
meets whenever possible. Olympic
competition has also been one of
Keen's interests.
The "M" coach has helped to
improve the wrestling sport from
an equipment angle. He has in-
vented knee pads, elbow pads, and,
last -year introduced- a much Im-
proved head gear. All of these help
sport safer for all concerned.

plan on some pretty wonderful performances, too! Just to
set the record straight, though, you'll find it won't take
much imagination at all to discover the best of all ways toy

quirements. Kwik 'n Kleen . . . it's new, it's a jiffy from
East, South and West Quads, and it offers you a fast, com-
plete, high quality service on the premises. Stop in at an
early opportunity . .h we'd enjoy serving you right from
the start!

. . Brings Deserved Honors
HOWEVER, last winter, at the Iowa-Michigan wrestling meet
verine Athletic Director H. 0. "Fritz" Crisler presented Keen
a plaque designating him -one of. the original members of the ne
fornied Collegiate Wrestling Hall of Fame. The award was made it
name of the Helms Foundation.
The Wolverine coach said that the greatest honor of his
career came from his wrestlers, and not from any award to hin
"My greatest thrill and honor," he said, "was to have two of my
win the Outstanding Wrestler Award at the Big Ten meets in su
sive years."
These two-Mike Rodriguez and Max Pearson-are only a cc
of the outstanding men that have wrestled for Keen. If he feels
ored each time that one of his wrestlers is honored, as he rii
should, Michigan has a truly honorable dean of coaches.
