Grapplers Pin Pesky

By BOB McFARLAND
The Amateur Athletic Union
fired the latest shot in the long-
standing war with the United
States Track and Field Federation
when it announced yesterday that
all foreign athletes that partici-
pated in the USTFF Invitational
in New York Friday have been
suspended from future competi-
tion in AAU meets.
Two Wolverine cindermen, Alex
McDonald from Jamaica and John
Reynolds form Canada, are tech-
nically affected by the decision.
Both are members- of Michigan's
outstanding two mile relay unit,
holders of the indoor season's best
time in the event. Their superb
7:29.8 clocking was run in the
disputed New York meet.
Wolverine head track coach Don
Canham, speaking of the AAU
declaration, said, "It doesn't
bother us. We weren't planning
on entering any further AAU
meets this season anyway. We've
got our own schedule to worry
about."
Foreign Meets
It was also reported that the
athletes included in the suspen-
sion could also be prevented from
entering foreign meets by the In-
ternational Amateur Athletic Fed-
eration, of which the AAU is a
representative.
Such competition as the Soviet
Union-United States meets are
governed by the IAAF. The Olym-
pic Games, however, are controlled
I by an entirely separate com-
mittee.
Canha1 discounts the talk that
the foreign athletes home countries
will take any action against their
cindermen either. "You think that
Canada is going to tell Reynolds
that he can't compete for her, or
Jamaica :will prevent McDonald
from representing her?" he asks.
"They're out to field the best team

Earl Riskey, the director of
IM sports, has announced that
time trials for the Residence

tition will begin at 8:30.

possible, and are not going to sac-
rifice quality over a dispute like
this."
Greek Controversy
Greece's top pole vaulter, Chris
Papanicoleau, is another thinclad
caught in the controversy. He was
not allowed to compete in the
Los Angeles Times meet Saturday
night, because of his participa-
tion in the USTFF Invitational.
"Greece isn't about to declare
Papanicolaou ineligible either,"
C a n h a m continued. "Everyone
should realize that the people gov-
erning track in foreign countries
have had long ties with colleges
in the United States. Half of them
attended universities in the U.S.,"
he pointed out. "For instance,
Jamaica's head man ran for four
years at Illinois."
Papanicolaou's coach, Bud Win-
ter of San Jose State, said that
the National Collegiate Athletic
Association, parent body of the
USTFF, has made an appeal for
an immediate ruling from the fed-
eral arbitration -board, of which
Canham is a member.
'Regretful'
Regarding the AAU decision,
Don Hull, executive director of
the AAU, remarked, "This is a
regretful action on our part. We
did our very best to get the meet
anctioned. We cannot understand
why the Federation did not ask us
for it."
Another AAU official, Hilmer
Lodge, said, "The AAU does not
go around offering sanctions," al-
though he implied that if the
AAU had been asked, it would
have conferred juristdiction on
the New York meet.
Canham expressed disgust at
the whole affair. "Another rea-
son why this is ridiculous is that
the Senate will tell the AAU to
reinstate them in a few days any-
way," he emphasized. %
NCAA attorneys have informed
Winter that none of the AAU
reprisals against the foreign ath-
letes are valid, because of a mora-
torium on the long-standing con-
troversy effected by the arbitra-
tion board.
Judging from the reactions of
both sides, this latest point of
controversy could destroy the un-
easy truce. Hull pointed out that
although the AAU refused to pen-
alize foreign track athletes last
season for participating in a Fed-
eration meet, he would recommend
that "we not grant another such
extension."
Canham was also adamant. "We
don't need the AAU. We have our
own meets, and we've got the
athletes. It's their hobby and our
job," the Michigan mentor added.

By CLARK NORTON
Although a pin in the heavy-
weight match would have meant
victory to the Wisconsin wrestlers
yesterday afternoon in Yost Field
House, the outcome of the meet
seemed in little doubt.
Dave Porter was the Wolverines'
heavyweight candidate.
Porter, NCAA heavyweight wres-
tling champion, quickly proceeded
to allay whatever apprehensions
coach Cliff Keen might have had
about the victory by overpower-
ing 200-pound Glenn Gaskill in
1:02 of the first period, anchor-
ing Michigan's 20-11 conquest of
the Badgers.
Undefeated in dual meet action
this season, Porter wearied his
opponent by picking him up in the
air three times and carrying him
around before dropping on him
for the pin and an added five
points.
Pressure was placed on Porter
when 177-pound Wolverine Pete
Cornell f o u n d his shoulders
wedged against the mat after 6:20
of his match with Badger Gary
Schmook. Schmook had had Cor-
nell trapped on his back for nearly
a half minute before Cornell had
gained a reversal and a 4-1 lead.
Almost immedately, however, Sch-
mook rolled Cornell over again
for the pin, and set the stage for
Porter's dramatics.
The Wolverines had pulled to
an apparently safe 15-6 edge on
successive decisions posted by 145-
pound Fred Stehman, 160-pound
Jim Kamman, and 167-pound Bill
Waterman, after the first four

Matmen Win
Frosh Meet
Michigan's freshman wrestling
squad, in its first intercollegiate
competition, overpowered f i v e
other freshman opponents in a
six-way meet at Yost Field House
Saturday morning.
The first-year matmen, whom
assistant coach Rick Bay terms
"an outstanding squad," compiled
83 points on four first places and
three seconds. Their nearest rivals,
Michigan State, were able to gar-
ner but 48 points.
Ron Sheer, Lou Hudson, Lane
Headrick and Jim Sanger notched
the victories for the freshmen.

a 6-6 stale-I

Sophomore Bob Noel, making
his second varsity appearance in
a Michigan uniform, dropped the
123-pound opening encounter to
Steve Potter, 6-3. Bob Fehrs, the
Wolverine regular at the position,
moved up to 130 pounds against
the Badgers, and managed to
whitewash his foe 7-0.
"Fehrs, however, will drop down
to 123 again for the two meets
this weekend," assistant coach
Rick Bay explained. "Noel did well
for his limited experience, but
Geoff Henson will go at 130 again
since Fehrs should be able to go
at his normal weight, after having
weight problems last week."
Gordon Weeks gained a con-
vincing defeat in the 137-pound
tussle, 14-7, but 145-pound Burt

Merical became a victim for only
the second time this year by drop-
ping a 9-7 decision to Badger Mike
Gluck. Merical and Gluck were
even in points at the end of the
eight-minute bout, but Gluck gain-
ed two markers and the margin of
victory on riding time.
"Gluck and Al Sievertsen, whom
Fred Stehman beat, are probably
Wisconsin's two best and most ex-
perienced wrestlers," Bay points
out. "But Merical had already
knocked off Gluck earlier this
year, in the Midlands Open in
Chicago last December. A couple
of mistakes this time, however,
cost him the match."
The victory was the thirteenth
straight in dual meet competition
for Michigan, after absorbing an
early season loss to Minnesota
last year. "But we looked sloppy

Badgers
out there today several times,"
Bay sighed. "And we only have
about six practice sessions left be-
fore we meet Michigan State in
two weeks. Wisconsin, however, is
the best team we've competed
against this year."

sion.
