Matmen Seek Start
Of New Win Streak

icer MacDonald Moves to Offense

Attempting to get back on the
winning side of the ledger after
watching his 34 consecutive dual
meet victory streak broken last!
Friday against Minnesota, Coach
Cliff Keen's wrestlers will host
the Purdue Boilermakers this
Saturday afternoon.
Purdue, winner of six Big Ten
titles in past years (second only to
Michigan in this respect since the
point system was adopted in 1934)
invades Ann Arbor after dropping
a meet last week to Northwestern.1
Earlier this year the Wolverines
defeated the Wildcats by a score!
of 23-10.
Coach Reeck1
Claude Reeck, who has served as
Boilermaker coach for the past 28
years, sports a squad thatis head-
ed by 130 pound sophomore Bill
Trujillo and 137 pound junior
Roger Anderson. Last year's star,
heavyweight' Robert Hopp, was
hurt earlier in an automobile
accident and is out of action this
season. Taking over Hopp's place
will be John Williams, who also
serves with Hopp on the Boiler-
maker grid squad.
Facing Mexican-born Trujillo
for the Wolverines will be Dave
Dozeman, who is back after miss-
ing the Minnesota meet with a
sprained back. Anderson's op-
ponent will be Michigan's captain
Bill Johannesen, and Michigan
heavyweight Dave Porter will be
matched up against Williams.
Porter was one of only two Wol-
verine wrestlers to cop victories
in Friday's loss to Minnesota.
Bob Fehrs, the only other mem-
ber of Coach Keen's crew to de-

feat his Gopher opponent, and
loser of only one this season, will
be pitted in the 123 pound division
against Larry Katz of the Boiler-
makers. In other matches, veteran
Cal Jenkins of Michigan will face
Rich Ratliff, a junior from In-
dianapolis, at 147 pounds. Burt
Merical will tangle with Dale
Smith, one of the few Purdue
seniors seeing action, in the 157
pound bracket.
At 167
The rest of the day's activity
will find 167 pounder Bill Water-
man of the Wolverines battling
junior Dave Petree of the Boiler-
makers, and Michigan sophomore
Wayne Wentz taking on Bruce
Lancet at 177 pounds.
Jim Kamman, 167 pound Wol-
verine regular who has beenW in
jured since the Northwestern meet
two weeks ago, will have the cast
removed from his wrist tomorrow,
but will definitely not be in action
Saturday. Coach Keen is taking a
wait-and-see attitude as to the
future status of Kamman. Other
than Kamman's injury, Keen re-
ported that the Wolverines were
in good shape. "I think we'll
bounce back this Saturday against
Purdue," the coach emphasized.
"Maybe we'll get some of the
breaks we didn't get against Min-
The meet will take place Satur-
day afternoon at 3:00 immediately
following the gymnastics meet in
the I.M. Sports Building. Due to
the tremendous popularity of the
Michigan wrestling team, there
were not enough bleachers avail-
able to accommodate the fans last
Friday night, and approximately
one-third of the crowd had to be
turned away. There is a possibility
however, that- some temporary
bleachers will be set up for the
meet this weekend.

difference between playing defense

To Michigan
From there he came to Michigan
after weighing the benefits from
some Eastern schools, especially
Boston College. Barry explained,
"The biggest factor in coming
here was the academics. It means
a lot to me. Michigan has been
a great experience. There is noth-
ing like it back home in Canada."
Barry is an English major in
LSA and he hopes to go on to
law school in Canada. He explain-
ed he would be unable to go to
law school in the United States
since he is a Canadian citizen. He
hopes to go to school through the
Canadian Olympic team.
About ,Mel'
When asked about Mel Wakaba-
yashi, Barry could give nothing
but praise about his linemate.
"Mel is a really good hockey play-
er. He is heady and smart-he
always knows where a guy should
be. I've played with the center
of the Canadian. Olympic team
and Mel is just as good as he is.
He is unselfish and just tre-
mendous, like two extra men."
Lion's Forte Resigns
Aldo Forte, 48, Detroit Lions
offensive line coach, resigned
late last night. He explained
that his business interests de-
manded more of his time. He
has been a coach with the Lions
organization since 1950.
When asked about Michigan's
chances in the WCHA, Barry felt
they were still good. "We have met
just about every one. With extra
effort and hustle, we can beat any
hockey team. It's a young team."
Looking forward to this Friday
and aSturday nights against
Michigan Tech, Barry pointed out,
"We have an avid rivalry with
Tech. The seniors have played
against them for three years. We
know their moves, and we know
the players. It will be a good
fight. It was a close one at Bos-
ton when we lost to them 7-6.
Biggest Thrill
Barry's biggest thrill was this
year at Minnesota. "We swept two
from them. We have a bitter riv-
alry with the Gophers. Their fans
are very pro-Minnesota. The over-
all play of our team was a pleas-
ant surprise. We just outhustled
The biggest factor in the team's
play to MacDonald has been the
hustle. "It's the team, and not
the individuals that has surprised
a lot of people. With fans and
the band at the Coliseum, it can't
help but boost the spirit and
hustle of the team. With people
in the stands, if we didn't hustle
we wouldn't be just letting down
ourselves but those fans too."
Barry's plans are law school
and an ultimate hope for a place
on the Canadian Hockey team. He
has had a taste of professional
hockey but doesn't really want to
continue along that line.
The Michigan hockey team will
play one of its most important
home series of the season as they
face Michigan Tech at home twice
this weekend. Michigan Tech is
currently tops in the WCHA and
the Huskies have only dropped two
games this season. Both of those
games will begin at 8:00 p.m. at
the Coliseum.

The Joyful Jdolts
Of IM Basketball
Screamed the barefoot, sockless, bearded, heezing aesthete as his
tootsies absorbed 200 pounds of plump gravity-pulled basketball player
during an intramural jam session.
After a minute of yelling, thirty seconds of moping, and an instant
of positive thinking he was back in the maelstrom of elbows, hips .
feet, awkward as a penguin trying to climb a tree. But still giving every
gram of his scrawny being to looping a ball through a hoop.
Intramural basketball is a cross between gauntlet running and
picnicking. It's one of the brutal joys of life.
The shoeless wheezer is just one of hundreds of dedicated IM
players who long for the grueling, sweaty workouts. There's
something alluring, downright infatuating about popping for two
from twenty feet whether you're Oscar Robertson or, a grad stu-
dent planning a dissertation on the physiology of mastodons.
There are two strains of IM ball, open and organized. Open is
a free for all of half court pickup games. You wander into the gym,
spy the floor for an amorphous bunch in need of manpower, and
invite yourself in. *
But, quite likely you'll find every court taken which means you
must infiltrate an ongoing game. This involves hovering close to a
court and then jumping into the action when nobody's looking. Since
nobody knows anybody else in these open contests you're likely to
get away with the ruse for about five minutes. Then a perceptive
guard ventures "how the hell did we get four against five in this





Driving for the Basket
At this point you propose that to resolve the inequities of the
situation "we should shoot for teams." You only advance this idea
if you're a solid free throw shooter, because the first eight to sink
a free throw play, the first four against the second four. When the
shooting for teams process begins the court suddenly becomes a
teeming mecca of outcasts and newcomers in search of basketball
action. So you better hit that shot on the first try or you'll have to
reinfiltrate. It's good practice if you're interested in the CIA.
Organized IM ball contrasts with open in certain glaring
respects. Most obvious, in organized league play referees are
injected into the melee. The refs tend to limit illicit entry but
rule enforcement is generally mythical. A traveling violation here,
a hacking foul there, an occasional technical for blue language,
but really it's like trying to stop a gang fight by' administering
spankings. You see part of the fun is in the bruises-given to the
other guy. When abatch of nice, quiet, inhibited, polite, genteel,
college guys get together for a basketball game there's really no
way you can prevent a bloodbath.
Bob Timberlake, one of the best ballplayers in IM history claimed
only half in jest that intramural ball might be rougher than Big Ten
football. And this from a quarterback who'd been mauled by Dick
But there's more to say about IM basketball than how tough it is.
For it's a game that brings out essential qualities of those who
play it.
You find the gripers who'd complain about the ride if they
were shipped to paradise. "The basket's too low, the ball's heavy,
the lighting stinks, and I've got a hangover and sprained ankle,"
is his creed.
And then there are the guys who live in the past. As the shot
misses the bucket by a yard they chant for all to hear, "I'd have
made that last year. I'm so miserable now, I just can't understand
it." Of course, they've always been inept, but such protestations are
logical defense mechanism. They may even believe their own fabri-
You come across the "good sports." These saccharine souls
would shake hands with their own hangmen. When you trip one
he'll compliment you on a fine defensive maneuver. They have
so much class it drips.
And finally there are the hot shots, the Bob Cousys with flat
feet and paunch. They give the awkward fakes, throw the behind the
back pass out of bounds four out of five, and bomb the jumper from
thirty feet swishing one for six.
But so what, we're all a little bit phony anyway. At least
playing intramural ball you can indulge your quirks, sweat up
your shirt, and feel the. satisfying achey exhaustion that no
amount of eye strain provides.
