Coach Jorgenson, whose current

5'9" Battler

The mighty matmen of Michi-
gan will be seeking their thirty-
fourth consecutive dual meet vic-
tory when they battle Northwest-
ern this Saturday in Evanston,
Under the tutelage of Cliff Keen,
the three-time defending Big Ten
champions have already added a
pair of victories to their skein
this season in meets against Iowa
and Indiana-as well as a third-
place finish in the Midlands Open
Championships over the holidays.
Coach Keen, however, is not
exactly complacent in this well-
traveled rut. "I expect a real
whale of a battle from North-
western," he admitted. "They have
one of the best teams since Ken
Kraft has taken over.
Tough Boys

Northwestern opened its Big
Ten season last Saturday with a
third-place finish in a quadrangu-
lar won by Michigan State.
Co-captain . Dick Ernst was
missing in the lineup for the
Wildcats. A preseason injury to
his knee which required surgery
has sidelined him indefinitely.
Last year, as a junior, he won the
Big Ten championship in the 177-
,pound class.
The remainder of the team will,
however, be at full strength.
Heavyweight Rematch
One of the main attractions of
this Saturday's meet will be a
rematch in the heavyweight divi-
sion between Dave Porter of Mich-
igan and sophomore Dan.Kraft of
Northwestern. The two met earlier
this season in the Midlands. Por-
ter came out on top by a single
point, 8-7.
Kraft is a younger brother of
'Cat coach Kraft and has already
won a respectable reputation
around the wrestling circuit. He
advanced to the finals in last
weekend's quad meet before los-
ing to John Staebler of Minnesota.
Three other promising sophs on
the Northwestern contingent, Russ
Schneider, Fred Ege and Curt
Imrie will start tomorrow against
the Wolverines.
Schneider will meet senior Cal
Jenkins of Michigan in the 147-


pound class. Ege will probably
tangle with Wolverine Dave Doze-
man at 130 pounds, and Imrie,
runner-up last weekend, will
wrestle captain Bill Johannesen
in the 137-pound class.
Only three returning lettermen
are back in the starting lineup for
Northwestern. Juniors Bill Ander-
son (123) and Rick Ruben (157)
are back on the mats, along with
senior co-captain Stu Marshall.
Anderson draws the tough as-
signment of meeting Big Ten
champion Bob Fehrs. In his only
conference action so far this sea-
son, Fehrs pinned his opponent in
Ruben, whom Keen describes
as a "very strong boy . .. one of
their real standouts," should go
up against Jim Kammen, another
Big Ten champion.
The other letterman, Marshall,
is a 167-pounder who Keen con-
siders Northwestern's best wrest-
ler. "He's an outstanding per-
former," praised Keen.
"Wrestle Anybody"
"Marshall can wrestle any one
he has to," he added, "the man
he'll probably face tomorrow will
be Bill Waterman, who is back in

Keen Optimism
Coach Keen is optimistic about
his team's chances, but he still
won't "sell Northwestern short."

met in Ann Arbor, the Wolverines
emerged victorious by a score of

closer than the. score indicates.
