Gopher Wrestlers Hand 3M' 18-8 Loss
By BOB McFARLAND
"The only way we could have
won was if I had been entered in
the diving events," Spartan Gary
Dilley Jested after the swimming
meet last night.
If Michigan State had entered
Olympian Dilley in the diving
events instead of his specialty,
the backstroke, it wouldn't have
affected the outcome. Dilley's
points only helped to lessen the
impact of a solid 70-53 Wolver-
ine victory, as the Michigan
tankers easily disposed of their
The diving, with or without
Dilley, provided the highlight of
the otherwise routine Wolverine
victory. Michigan senior Bruce
entertained\ the crowd with a tre-
mendous performance, taking two
first place finishes.
Wins Low Board
Taking a comparatively easy
victory in the one meter event,
the judges awarded Brown 285.45
points, well ahead of the Spar-
tans' Fred Whiteford at 248.1, but
the best was yet to come.
In the three meter dive, Brown
completed the six dives in near
perfect fashion, earning a remark-
able 345.50 points. On his best
plunge, the judges recorded scores
of 9, 8.5, and 9 on a 10 point
scale for the Wolverine. Brown's
feats are comparable to a slug-
ger cracking four home runs in
one game, or a halfback scoring
five touchdowns in a single con-
Whiteford again placed next
behind Brown in the three meter

Nodaks Throw Icers
In Deep.-Freeze, 6-4
By R. NEIL FEFERMAN
One half of the gymnasium was
totally deserted, a darkened caw
er of ominous and oppressive
solitude. On the other side of an
invisible border, forming a sort of
moat, was a sea of humanity, a
teeming mass of people, a raging
torrent of ideas and emotions and
opinions and reactions.
Incredulously the torrent had
been reduced to a mere trickle;
instead of the boisterous interplay
of feelings, only sporadic com-
ments punctuated the deadening
Gradually the state of shock
evaporated, and little by little the
zombies of a few moments before
resigned themselves to the radical-
ly altered state of affairs and re-
turned to life; within 20 minutes
they nearly went berserk at the
particularly exciting termination
to the contest.
Perhaps this merely proves the
fickleness of man, that when he is
divested of something which he
long has revered and which has
been a part of him, its glamor dis-
appears and is repressed in his
thoughts. Or perhaps it simply is
indicative of some element in
sport and athletics which gives it
an- intrinsic Value, that of escape
from hardened reality.
The fact remains however, that
just as death is a part of life, de-
feat is a part of competition. It
must be expected, though certain-
ly not eagerly awaited. Most likely
this accounts for the shock last
night when the University of Min-
nesota wrestling team thoroughly
and unquestionably defeated Mich-
igan. Though the loss counts as
only "one," it ranks much higher
in significance than a mere num-
ber can indicate. The Gophers
managed something which the
previous 34 opponents of the Wol-
verines had failed to accomplish;
a victory skein spanning four sea-
sons was snapped, twisted, and
stomped into the mat, much to the
amazement and consternation of
Michigan's numerous and fanati-
Again, however, numbers can-
not relate the story of what went
into this streak, which seems re-
markable in view of the compe-
tition against which it was com-
piled. Strictly speaking, it repre-
sents uncountable hours and ef-
forts throughout the duration,
both on the part of the athletes
and the coaches. Perhaps as it
pertains to the present team the
scope of last night's events is not
merely so great; the Big Ten meet
determines the conference cham-
pion, not the dual meet stand-
But somewhere you must inter-
ject the person of Clifford Keen,
who has coached at Michigan for
40 years. He is a man who takes
immense pride in his work and
thus devotes himself quite intense-
ly to his job. Rather than develop-
ing only wrestlers, Cliff Keen en-
deavors to develop men. And
nothing was more in evidence last
night when Michigan went down'
to defeat than the simple fact
that they had fought and lost like
true sportsmen, and even more,
When they fell behind, the
coaches and the team implored
and encouraged the boys to go all
out, to try for more than a vic-
tory-to try for a pin. And when
the winning streak was all over,
though two individual matches!
still remained, the coaches and
the squad did not sit back and
sulk, but continued to yell en-
couragement and hopes to the
And hopefully people saw how,
after the meet, a smiling, almost
jocular Cliff Keen went over to
congratulate the Minnesota coach
and tell him he deserved the vic-
tory. And there was Jimmy Kam-
men, the Big Ten champ at 147,
hobbling over to Minnesota's
coach on crutches, wholehearted-
ly praising the efforts of the
You could go on and on, for it
is the sort of ,thing which lasts
much longer than any sort of win-
Michigan won the opening and
closing rounds quite decisively,
and that was about all. Bob Fehrs
started out and outmuscled, out-
wrestled, and overpowered Jim
Anderson. It was almost a thing
of beauty as Fehrs gave a lesson
on the art of wrestling.
L a r r y Lgyd outmaneuvered
Michigan's Gordon Weeks in the
130 pound class; then came what
Minnesota coach Wally Johnson
termed "the turning point of the
meet." Michigan captain Bill
Johannesen was administering a
thorough beating to Terry Barett.
The score indicates little, for Bar-
ett continuously ran from Johan-
nesen. Twice he was penalized for
stalling; he aggravated his coach
to the point where Johnson got
up and yelled "Terry, get in that
circle!" But with less than 30
seconds left, Billy Jo got careless
and Barett grabbed the oppor-
tunity to score a takedown, a pre-
dicament, and a victory.

21 BELOW zero INSIDE the un-
heated North Dakota rink last
night, and the Sioux cooled the
Wolverines win streak at five as
they bounced the high-flying icers
by a score of 6-4.
The loss leaves Michigan with
a 5-2 WCHA mark, but they held
on to second place over North
Dakota by .022 percentage points.
The Wolverines held a slim 2-1
advantage at the end of two per-
iods of play in what North Dakota
fans call "Pneumonia Gulch," but
the Nodaks' four-goal outburst
that began at 0.46 of the final
period proved to be too much.

Cagers Host Minnesota
In Crucial Game for Both
By RICK STERN
A very short ten months ago,
Michigan defeated Minnesota 87-
85 to win the Big Ten champion-
This afternoon the Wolverines
can eliminate the Gophers before
they even get warmed up to the
idea of their first Big Ten cham-
pionship since 1937. Minnesota
has. already lost one game (to
Michigan State) and to fall two
games behind at such an early
point in the season would in all
probability do irreparable harm to
The game at Yost Fieldhouse is
a sellout. The tipoff is at 1:30 with
the doors opening two hours
"It's an important game .-.
and a loss would hurt us real bad,"
says veteran Gopher coach John
Kundla. "In the Big Ten you sim-
ply can't afford any losses if you
expect to do Well."
Crucial for Both
A win over the Gophers at this
stagel of the race is crucial for
other reasons too. Michigan is a
basketball team which is, or should
be, at its peak. Minnesota is a
team on its way toward a peak.
The Gophers will get better long,
before they get worse.
Right now, their All-America
forward Lou Hudson is barely at
half strength, recovering from a
broken wrist and playing with a
two-pound cast on his right hand.
If Hudson scores 20 (as he did
last Saturday in a win over In-
diana) playing half a game at
half strength, the sky would seem
to be his healthy limit.
And Hudson's former partner in
mayhem, guard Archie Clark, has
averaged around 25 all season,
which should give Minnesota the
nation's finest one-two scoring
punch when Hudson regains the
use of his encased extremity.
'Play Him Normally'
But for Dave Strack and the
Wolverines, Hudson's future is im-
portant starting this afternoon.
"We'll be playing Hudson just as
if he had two good arms," said
Strack yesterday, adding "I've al-
ways considered him one of the
five best players in the country."
Kundla was highly pessimistic
about Hudson's condition. "He's
not in good shape, but I hope to
get him in there to spell our boys
whenever possible." Publicity re-
leases have listed Hudson in the
starting line-up, but Kundla indi-
cated that this would not be the
(A reliable source who witnessed
Minnesota's workout in Yost Field-
house yesterday afternoon report-
ed last night that Hudson did not
appear to be bothered by the cast'
at all while working out. He was
shooting jump shots right- and-
handed and sank several 20-foot
right-handers. The cast covers his
arm from the elbow to the wrist,
but does not seem to interfere with
his hand or his shooting, accord-
ing to the source.)
Just how bad the neophyte left-
hander is,is a question which won't
be answered until game time, but
it's a good bet that he'll see
plenty of action against Michigan
even if he breaks the other arm.
Interestingly e n o u g h, both
Strack and Kundla pointed to the
opposition's rebounding strength as
the potential key factor in the
game. Said Strack, "Minnesota's
main asset is definitely their board
strength. They're leading the
league in rebounding. They're fast,
too, and have an excellent fast-
Kundla's comment took much
the same position. "Michigan's
strength is on the backboards. We
are actually fairly weak though
the statistics don't indicate it."
The brunt of Minnesota's board
work is borne by a 6'6" senior
and a 6'7" sophomore. The senior
is Denny Dvoracek, a forward
who averaged 9.2 points per game
last season. The 19-year-old soph-
omore is Tom Kondla, whom many
experts rate as the key to Gopher
championship hopes. Kondla has
not scored as well as expected
this season, but his coach credits
him with "considerable progress."

"The Flint Open will be excel-
lent preparation for Big Ten
weekend," explained coach Loken.
"Several of our boys will have a
chance to perform two complete
Preliminaries will start at 1
p.m. with finals set for 8. The top
five finishers in each preliminary
event will qualify for the -evening
"This will give everyone one
more practice meet under official
conditions before our big test
against Iowa next week," added
Loken. "I hope to have 18 top
gymnasts by then."
Iowa is an annual threat to the
Wolverines' hold on the Big Ten
title. The Hawkeyes amassed 174
points in a dual meet conquest
over Minnesota last Saturday.
Michigan State is also offering
more than token interest in sabo-
taging Michigan gymnastics this
year, having already rolled up an
impressive 181-116- victory over
Ohio State. The varsity Spartans
meet head on with Iowa today in
East Lansing, while MSU's frosh
will participate in the Flint Open.
For Michigan the meet- will
mean another crack at a long-
awaited goal. "We'd just love to hit
90 per cent perfection this week-
end," cited Loken.
Keeping Loken's ambition, in
mind, the Wolverines have begun
an intra-squad rivalry for top
scores. "It's almost like seven
teams within one big team," said
In last weekend's non-confer-
ence encounter with Eastern, the
Wolverine vaulting specialists were
tops, averaging 9.23 for the first
three places. The ring experts
were next with a 9.13 average.
On the national scene, in results
up until last week, five Wolverines
rank in the top ten of their re-
spective events. Junior Phip Fuller
is the highest Michigan man with
a fourth-place rating in vaulting,
but soph Wayne Miller ranks fifth
in the nation on tramp and tenth
Art Baessler is seventh on the
side horse, Ken Williams tenth on
the parallel bars and Rich Blan-
ton tenth on the still rings,
One of the more important as-
pects of today's Flint Open will
be competition for an all-around
champion. Junior Gary Vander
Voort will probably enter all seven
events in an effort to claim the
title. He finished fourth in all-
around point totals in the Big
Ten championships last year, but
injuries ot his hand and, shoulder
have been plaguing him this sea-
Michigan fought back from a
4-2 deficit created by the early
Sioux goals on back to back tallies
by Bruce Kodiak. The first of his
pair came on a rebound from a
Mike Marttila slap shot that was
set up by a slick pass from brother
Lee. The second Kodiak score
came six minutes later as he took
a pass from Mark Thompson at
the blue line and beat goalie
Mike Curran cleanly.
North Dakota came right back
to pick up the lead 68 seconds
later as Bill Wilms got the puck
behind Harold Herman on a sharp
pass from Captain Terry Casey.
Herman was outstanding in the
nets all night as he came up with
tough saves, especially in the first
two periods. Michigan was forced
to play with only three regular
defensemen as rapidly improving
Hank Brand did not make the
trip. His presence was thoroughly
missed as Ted Henderson, Bill
Lord and Thompson all showed
visible signs of fatigue in the final
period while trying to find some
way to stop the consistent Nodak
From the very opening faceoff
North Dakota had the upper hand
in the play, and it was a combina-
tion of Herman's work in the nets,
sharp defensive play by Hender-
son, and missed shots by the Sioux
that enabled Michigan to hang on
to their slim 2-1 advantage.
Most of the scoreless first per-
iod was played between the blue
lines with neither team being able
to set up any sustained offense.
North Dakota outskated the
Wolverines, but part of their edge
had to be credited to the brutally
cold conditions inside the quonset
hut rink (only four degrees warm-
er than outside).
The tempo of play picked up
considerably in the second period.
Michigan tallied first at 2:03
when Bruce Kodiak picked up the
rebound on MacDonald's slap shot
and fed Wakabayashi cutting
across the front of the crease.
Wakabayashi deked Curra'n to the
right side of the net, then gently
slipped the puck into the goal.
Hard to Take
Coach Al Renfrew must have
cringed every time the Nodaks got
started on one of their powerful
rushes that characterized their
hard skating and style of play.
Michigan added its second goal
eight minutes later when Kodiak
picked up the puck on the right
boards and passed to Baird cut-
ting in from center. Baird's 20-
foot slap shot slipped under Cur-
ran's pads and into the net.
The Sioux were not to be de-
nied, however, as they started their
potent rushes with even more vig-
or and scored their first goal of
the game on a picture book play.
Wilms carried the puck into the
blue line behind the net where he
slipped a sharp pass ahead to
Casey who rammed the puck in on
a difficult short angle to Her-
man s left which made the score
2-1 after two periods of play.
The two teams wil meet again
tonight in a rematch and the tem-
p.erature is expected to drop to 30
below by game time.
