The woodworking teacher toyed
with the future in threatening an
amazingly massive seventh grader
with a "five" in citizenship if he
didn't join the wrestling squad.
The boy lost 6-5 in his first and
last match for West Junior High
School before he was snatched by
Lansing Sexton's varsity coach
and pitted against grapplers four
or five years his senior.
By the time he was a junior and

able to compete against peers, the
Michigan State squad swallowed
him up to work out at their level.
It wasn't until his first year at
college that Michigan heavyweight
Dave Porter didn't look up age-
wise at his opponents.

"There was <never anyone big
enough for me," Porter recalls, "so
I was always going against older
guys." And while he was looking
for weight equals he hacked
around on Sexton's gridiron pick-
ing up varsity letters in both
sports like daisies.
Big Ten coaches are impression-
able. He was impressive. The offers
were charted with each school's
advantages mapped out, "sort of
like a game. I guess Michigan had
the most points and won." It was
about this time that the Spartans
decided they didn't want a high
school senior practicing with their
collegiate squad.
In the annals of Wolverine ath-
letic history, it little matters what
Isabella or Abe decided. What is
significant is that "Mr. Randall,
a really great guy" decided to set

Thinking of You
There's a wrestler at Arizona
State who hasn't thought about
anyone except Porter all year.
When lie eats, he remembers that
Porter is 240. When he sleeps, he
remembers that Porter's prime
preparation is a good night's rest.
When he practices, he remembers
that Porter will be at Kent State
for the NCAA championships on
March 23. When he pins someone,
he remembers that Porter has only
fallen twice. When he talks to his
coach, he remembers a press state-
ment that he is determined to take
the national crown from Michi-
gan's mat king.
And there's a wrestler at the
University of Michigan quite ob-
livious to "Curly" Culp's frenzy,
whose concern for the title is pre-
sently shadowed by the remaining
work-outs. His press-release is less
fatalistic. I'll worry about it when
we meet."
One of them will take that
championship. The other will get

GRADUATING ENGINEERS; the opportunities are excellent for those
who desire a career in the Material Handling Industry, and are inter-
ested in diversification of training in all product areas from designing
to wherever your abilities carry you in this exciting industry.




Why become an engineer at
Garrett-AiResearch? You'll have to
work harder and use more of
your knowledge than engineers
at most other companies.

1429 Hill Street

All Welcome

I. -: -- ----.- -.-. -i It


If you're our kind of engineer,
you have some very definite ideas
about your career.
For example:
You've worked hard to get a
good education. Now you want to
put it to work in the best way
You will never be satisfied with
run-of-the-mill assignments. You
demand exciting,
challenging projects.
You not only accept
individual responsibil-.
ity -you insist upon it.
Does that sound like
you? Then AiResearch
is your'cup of tea.
Our business is
mainly in sophisticated aerospace
systems and subsystems.
Here, research, design, and de-
velopment lead to production of

actual hardware.
That means you
have the oppor-
tunity to start with
a customer's problem
and see it through to a
system that will get the job done.
The product lines at AiResearch,
Los Angeles Division, are environ-
mental systems, flight information
and controls sys-
tems, heat transfer
systems, secondary
power' generator
systems for missiles
and space, electri-
cal systems, and
specialized indus-
trial systems.
In each category AiResearch
employs three kinds of engineers,
Preliminary design engineers do
the analytical and theoretical
work, then write proposals.
Design engineers do the lay-
outs; turn an idea into a product.
Developmental engineers are
responsible for making hardware
out of concepts.
Whichever field fits you best, we
can guarantee you this: you can
go as far and fast as your talents

Our engineering staff is smaller
than comparable companies. This
spells opportunity. It gives a man
who wants to make a mark plenty
of elbow room to expand. And
while he's doing it he's working
with, and learning from, some of
the real pros in the field.
If the AiResearch story sounds
like opportunity speaking to you-

sentative when he comes to your

about you and your future.
