"Porter, Fehrs, and Kamman
form a nucleus of our most ex-

"but we have returning veterans
at a number of other positions.
We're not a three-man squad."
But while there are other re-
turning veterans, their positions
are not yet set. "It's hard to tell
where each will be right now.
And anybody could be pushed by
a sophomore," Bay emphasized.
Along with Kamman, veterans
Fred Stehman, a junior, and Burt
Merical, a senior, will vie for spots
in the 147, 152, and 160 pound
divisions. Seniors Jon Headrick
and Sid Kraizman, who have seen
little previous action, are other
The 167-pound division may pre-
sent more problems. "This is a
difficult weight to fill," explained
Bay, "not because of lack of man-
power, but because most of the
boys have their natural weights
well above or below this."
Juniors Wayne Hansen and Bill
Waterman split duties at the spot
last year, and therefore are likely
candidates. Sophomore Pete Cor-
nell and junior Wayne Wentz,, last
year's 177 pound regular, may
wind up at either weight.
Sophomores have shots at two
positions in the lower weights,
although senior Gordon Weeks,
with some experience, may be
considered the favorite at 137
pounds. Sophomore Tom McCas-
lin will press Weeks while another
sophomore. Geoff Hansen, has the
inside track at 130.

will get a first look at most of the
Big Ten schools.
"The Midlands is one of the out-
standing tournaments in the na-
tion," enthused Bay, "and it rep-
resents a real test, especially for
us. With our academic set-up, we
get a much later start than most
schools. This will be our first tour-
nament, while many schools have
already started because they don't
have to worry about finals now."
