Grappler Fehrs Points

Toward Pins

Rangers Maul Red Wings, 5-0

To a wrestler, gaining a deci-
sin over his opponent may be;
comparable to taking a trip via
the scenic route; but scenery can
lose a lot of its appeal with a
sweaty hand in one's face.
Bob Fehrs, 123-pound Wolver-,
ine wrestler, would just as soon
take a shortcut. And not because
She's lazy. "It's almost a waste of
time trying to merely build up
points against your opponent,"
the diminutive grappler explains.
"After all, in one quick movement
by either wrestler leading to a pin,
the match can instantaneously be
* "Then again, going for a pin
can also ultimately serve as the
best defensive maneuver. In the
long run, you can amass more
points by gaining near take-downs
and reversals than you might gain
if you were only going for a deci-
sion victory, and you keep the
other fellow constantly on the de-
Takes Chances
Fehrs is the first to admit that
his style-which few other colleg-
iate wrestlers will attempt-can
be very dangerous. But Fehrs is
an aggressive athelte. He knows
no other way to compete.
"When Bob is out on the mat,"
explains teammate Jim Kamman,
"it is almost like he is at home. He
immediately takes charge of the
situation, never letting up at go-
ing for a pin.",
Fehrs' c6llegiate record reflects
0 his intense desire to win. The
Michigan junior has absorbed but
one setback this season, that to
Massaki Matta, Olympic finalist,
in the Midlands tournament early
in the season, while pinning six
opponents in 13 matches.
His goal this season is a na-
tional championship.
Grudge Meet
"Last year I was defeated in
the finals by a fellow who was also
a sophomore. I'm looking forward
to. a possible rematch with him
again this year."
First, however, he must repeat
as Big Ten champion in his weight
division. "As things stand now,"
Fehrs concluded, "I think I have

a pretty good change of winning
Life in a Hershey, Pa., orph-
anage molded Fehrs into the
wrestler he is today. He admits
he had no trouble gaining prac-
tical experience in the sport.
"We had to learn to fight, all
right. But wrestling as a sport
carried a great deal more prestige.
Sports and competition are very
important at an all-boys school

praise for his present college
coaches, Cliff Keen and assistant
coach Dennis Fitzgerald. "Both
have been very helpful, especially
in teaching me new techniques
and the fine points of the sport."
Actually, Fehrs did not plan to
come to Michigan-or any univer-
sity-until his junior year in high
school when he began to receive
scholarship offers on the basis of
his wrestling achievements.
Day and Night
Since he has been at Michigan,
wrestling has occupied a major
portion of his life. And pinning
his opponents has occupied a ma-
jor part of his wrestling career.
"I used to get nervous before a
match, but now I mostly worry
about whether I can beat my op-
ponent or not, and of course if I
can pin him."
He has been well equipped to
manage both goals with a tre-
mendous storehouse of holds de-
signed to gain a pin. His favorite
is the "guillotine," a hold in which
he maneuvers his legs across his
opponent's body, grabs his head,
turns him over, and simply tries
his hardest to pull him apart. For
it is only when a hold begins to
hurt that it gains its maximum
"As long as he feels no pain, my
opponent will keep fighting," ex-
plains Fehrs. "That's why I have
to hurt him if I expect to pin
No sport for the weak of body,
you say? Fehrs' adversaries would
have to agree. But Bob himself
has a weight problem, having to
continually pare down to 123
pounds, which affects his eating
habits. Does this impair his
Crash Diet
"Last summer," Fehrs replies,
"I weighed 150 pounds. Now, to
stay at 123, I can eat very little in
the four days preceding a match.
Losing weight, however, actually
increases my effectiveness during
a match. I find that I am much
quicker and more agile if I am
lighter than usual. In addition,
the sacrifice of going without a
great deal of food only makes mp
that much angrier at my op-

ponent, and this in turn makes me
a better wrestler."
Possessing a natural balance
that is essential to a great wres-
tler, Fehrs reveals more quickness
and agility than is produced by
artificial methods, however. Ac-
cording to Kamman, "Bob picks
up new holds right away. He's got

that good feel. That's the differ-
ence between him and other
That difference, more often
than not, reflects itself by two
added points on the Michigan
scoreboard - the difference in
points between a decision and a

Pistons Nicked by Knicks

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Bob Nevin fired
two goals and goalie Cesare Man-
iago turned in New York's first
shutout of the season as the New
York Rangers blanked the Detroit
Red Wings 5-0 in a National
Hockey League game last night.
Nevin's 25th and 26th goals of
the season midway through sec-
ond period shook the Rangers loose
and Maniago carried them the rest
of the way.
The 27-year-old goalie, playing
only his 12th game for New York
was flawless on 23 Detroit shots
as the Red Wings suffered their
first shutout of the season.
He handled breakaways by Alex
Delvecchio, Floyd Smith and Leo
Boivin and on several occasions
dived face first on the ice to
cover loose pucks.

Leafs Nip Hawks
CHICAGO--Al Smith, 19-year-
old goalie playing his first fulll
National Hockey League game,
turned back 32 shots last night to
pace the Toronto Maple Leafs to
a 3-2 victory over the Chicago
Black Hawks,
Smith, a junior A amateur, was
hurried into service at 2:15 of
the first period when starting net-
minder Gary Smith suffered a leg
injury. Both Smiths are with the

Leafs because of injuries to reg-
ular goalies Johnny Bower and
Terry Sawchuk.
Habs Stop Bruins
MONTREAL - J. C. Tremblay
fired in a goal with less than two
minutes remaining last night, giv-
ing the Montreal Canadiens a 3-2
victory over the Boston Bruins in
the National Hockey League.
Boston took a 2-0 lead in the
first period and held a 2-1 lead
until Claude Larose scored an un-
assisted goal at 3:34 of the third
Bruins' goalie Bernie Parent
then held off the Canadiens until
only 1:50 remained. At that point,
Tremblay got the puck from Henri
Richard and whipped it past Par-
ent for the winning goal.

anyway, and since we were a top
wrestling power in the state, wres-
tling and wrestlers became more
popular than football.
"Being small, wrestling was an
ideal sport for me to go into. I
played football, but my size elim-
inated me from serious considera-
tion. In wrestling, you're always
out there with a man your size."
Fehrs admits, however, that his
lack of size might have actually
helped him to excel. "The more I
was kidded about being smaller
than the rest, the harder I tried
to prove myself to everybody, and
the harder I worked at wrestling.
And I Was particularly happy to
do well in wrestling, since it was
regarded with so much respect by
the other students."
National Honors
Fehrs worked hard enough to
win the national prep tournament
twice-in his junior and senior
years. Yet the grappler ironically
was not able to compete in the
Pennsylvania state tournament,
since his school was'ineligible to
"My high school coach was the
emotional type, and still has me
phone the results to him after
every match I'm in. He has always
taken a great deal of interest in
me and has helped inspire me to
achieve as much as possible."
Fehrs has similar words of

BALTIMORE (P) - The Balti-
more Bullets overcame a 10-point
deficit in the last 5 minutes
and defeated the Philadelphia
76ers 119-115 last night in the
second half of a National Basket-
ball Association doubleheader.
In the opener, the New York
Knickerbockers defeated the De-
troit Pistons 100-98 as substitute

Baltimore comeback.
Crucial Basket
The Bullets tied the score 110-

ing the string and Egan, a six-
foot guard, scored the tying bas-
Green, a notoriously poor foul
shooter, put Baltimore ahead by
sinking a free throw with 1:41 to
play. Egan added another basket,
and after Wilt Chamberlain tal-
lied a field goal for Philadelphia,
Bailey Howell sneaked down court
unnoticed to score a basket which
put Baltimore on top 117-113.
Chamberlain, the league's all-
time scorer, took only four shots in
the first half while contenting
himself with setting up his team-
mates. He finished with 20 points,

grabbed 31 rebounds and led both
teams with 10 assists.
Hal Greer scored 37 points to
lead the 76ers, who fell two games
behind league leading Boston in
the Eastern Division.
Don Ohl topped Baltimore with
23 points, while Gus Johnson and
Egan added 22 apiece. Green scor-
ed seven during his 12 minutes
of action, including five after the
Bullets started their comeback.
The Bullets, who have beaten
Philadelphia five times in eight
games, increased their second
place lead to three games over
St. Louis in the Western Division.
Bryant, . who played only 14
minutes, yanked New Yorkout of

After Ray Scott hit another field
goal for Detroit, Bryan't's two foul
shots made it 100-96. Eddie Miles
pulled the Pistons to within two
points again andafter Dick Bar-
nett of the Knicks lost the ball
out of bounds with three seconds
remaining, a long shot by Miles
missed as time ran out.
