Wrestlers Face CrucialContest

'4' r r .

rwo of Michigan's best middle-
Itance runners, Ergas Leps and
ve Martin, travel this Satur-
y to the Boston Games, an open
et for outstanding college and
ateur trackmen.
Leps will get a real test in the
)0-yd. run from Olympian and
-Standford great Ernie Cun-
fe. Martin will be trying to up-
the New York Athletic Club's
Moran in the mile. Moran has
a 4:01 in that event, one of
best times ever registered by
American miler.
Leps, who qualified second in
800-meter run for Canada's
ympic team last summer, al-
idy has experience in the Bos-
i Games.
Takes Third
Last year he finished third in
'1000 behind Yale's Tom Car-
1 and the NYAC's Tom Murphy,
o ran the 800-meters for the"
S. Olympic team last summer
h Cunliffe and Jerry Siebert.
Because of the clashing running
ategies of the two Olympians,
e race between Leps and Cun-
fe could turn into a great psy-
ological duel...
Cunliffe's strategy, ever since
senior year in high school,

has been to open up as much as
12 yards between himself and the
rest of the pack at the start of the
race and then try to hold off
his challengers' fast finish over
the last 220 yards.
Leps, on the other hand, delights
in holding back behind the front-
runners and then kicking past
them on the home stretch.
Leps holds the Michigan varsity
record of 2:11.0 in the 1000-yd.
run and has finished second and
fourth in the Big Ten champion-
ship half mile, first and third in
the mile. Cunliffe has the best
800-meter time (1:46.+6) of any
active American half -iler.
Versatile Runner
Martin, a versatile middle-
distance runner who competes in
anything from two miles down
to the half mile, holds a fine 4:09.8
mile to his credit and has placed
second,,third, fourth and fifth at
various distances in Big Ten meets
over the last two years.
Assistant Coach Elmer Swanson
was quick to point out, however,
that although Leps and Martin
are in "pretty good shape," this
is the first race of the year for
"The first competition is some-
times a big shock," he added.

The nation's third - ranked
wrestling team takes on the
fourth - ranked squad Monday
when Cliff Keen's Wolverines
take on the Panthers of Pitts-
The last issue of Amateur Wres-
tling News rates only Oklahoma
State and Oklahoma ahead of the
Michigan squad, with Pittsburgh a
close fourth. The magazine is the
official organ of the American
Wrestling Coaches Association and
is generally regarded as the "Bi-
ble" of the sport.
Prestige Doesn't Count
The high prestige of Michigan's
wrestlers will not mean a thing
when they face, Pittsburgh in
what Coach Keen calls "one of
the biggest meets of the year."
He continued with, "some of our
Conference meets this year are
big, but this one will most heavily
influence our national prestige"
In last year's dual meet between
the same teams, Michigan's mat-
men turned back the Panthers by
a 17-11 score.
The Panthers will have a few
things going for them when they
attempt to retain the prestige
they acquired by running away
with the Wilkes Invitational Tour-
nament, the "Rose Bowl of wres-
tling," a few weeks ago in which
Michigan finished second. Mici-
Igan, however, had only fourmen
competing, as compared to more
than twenty for Pittsburgh,
Three Champs
The Wolverines had three in-
dividual champions, more than
any other school, while Pittsburgh
managed only one but had many
seconds and thirds.
One of these second-place fin-
ishers was Jim Harrison at 157-
lbs. The man who defeated him
for the title was Don Corriere,
Michigan's 1959 Big Ten champ
who dropped out of school last

year but has returned for this
season. Corriere will be defending
his perfect 3-0 dual meet record
when he takes on the powerful
Harrison, Pennsylvania state
champ for the past two years, in
what could be the highlight of
the meet.
Top Match
Another top match will pit
Fritz Kelerman against Larry
Lauchle, Pittsburgh's Olympic
competitor. Kellerman is the 137-
lb. Big Ten titlist, but will drop
to Lauchle's 130-lb. weight for
the meet.
Kellerman was pinned by Daryl
Kelvngton in the dual meet, and
will be after a revenge victory. It
was only Kellerman's second col-
legiate match, but he "has learn-
ed a lot since then," Keen said.

Wed., Jon. 11, 7-10 P.M.
Room 3G Union

Kelvington, who took Pitts-
burgh's only title at the Wilkes
tournament, will face Wilfried Hil-
debrandt, who surprised by win-
ning a tough match with Indiana's
Don Schultz last Saturday. Hilde-
brandt weighed 10 pounds less
than his opponent, a disadvantage
he will not have to code with
against the 137-lb. Kelvington.
Jim Blaker will be another Wol-
verine seeking revenge when he
faces John Zolikoff. The highly
regarded Zolikoff defeated Blaker
last year in a close 3-2 match,
after which the Michigan 147-lb.
star went on to win the Big Ten
championship at that weight.
Another Problem
Another problem for Coach
Keen's squad is Dick Martin, the
123-lb. competitor, who will face
Willard Root. Martin won the
Wilkes tournament in 1959, al-
though losing in the finals there
two weeks ago.
The comparative 1 a c k of
strength at the lighter weights
will be the chief problem when
Michigan's team points are to-
taled. The power that has been
apparent in the middle and heavy-
weights has been enough to off-
set this deficiency so far, as the
3-0 record will attest. But then,
the Wolverines have not yet met
a team of Pittsburgh's rank.

VfW O VERY DIFFERENT all-year races are beginning to take
shape as I-M competitors take their mid-year break.
In the social fraternity bracket, defending champion Sigma
Alpha Epsilon leads a tight pack, maintaining a slim four point edge
over Phi Delta Theta, 587-583. Sigma Chi 573, Alpha Tau Omega
562, Phi Gamma Delta 547, and Beta Theta Pi 519, are all well within
striking distance. Delta Upsilon, Sigma Alpha Mu, Sigma Phi Epsilon,
and Theta Delta Chi cannot be overlooked as possible title challengers.
The fraternity handball, dual swimming, and bowling champion-
ships will be decided in February. At this point, four teams are left
in handball, eight in swimming, and 14 in bowling. Sigma Chi is
still in the running for all three titles, while SAE, Beta Theta. Pi,
and Sigma Phi Epsilon are each in contention for two.
Perennial powerhouse Gomberg has jumped to a commanding
755-683 lead over defending champion Kelsey, in residence hall com-
petition. Gomberg picked up first places in 'B' volleyball and wrestl-
ing and a second in 'A' volleyball.
In addition, Gomberg is still undefeated in dual swimming and
handball, which have not been completed.

place in the WCHA standings with
a sweep of the two game Michi-
gan Tech series, 2-1, and 5-2, last
Berenson fired in both goals
in the Friday night game and add-
ed another Saturday night to
raise his league goals to seven.
He added three assists in the
Saturday encounter to raise his
league total to 13.
With six points garnered in the
two games, Berenson moved into
second place in the WCHA scor-
ing race, just one point behind
Denver's Jerry Walker, who has
14 goals and. seven assists for a
total of 21 points.
Babcock Third
Third in the scoring race is
another member of the Wolverine
first line, Larry Babcock, who has
scored nine goals and added nine
assists for a total of 18 points.
Babcock added four points to his
total in the Tech series with one
goal and three assists.
The third member of the first
I Michigan line, Al Hinnegan, is in
eighth place in the scoring with

six goals and seven assists for 13
It is interesting to note that
Michigan's opponents this week-
end, Minnesota, has no one in
the top twenty scorers, after four
league games. Jerry Norman with
eight points and Oscar Mahle and
Jerry Westby with seven each
have been the Gopher's most con-
sistent scorers.
High Scorers
In ten league games this year,
the Wolverines have scored 43
goals, an average of 4.3 a game,
while Minnesota has scored 25
goals in four games, an average
of 6.3 a game. However, the
Gopher defense has not been as
tight as Michigan's, having al-
lowed 16 goals, an average of four
per game, as compared to the 36
allowed by the Wolverines, a 3.6
Michigan's alternating goalies
Dave Butts and Jim Coyle, are
third and fourth, respectively, in
the WCHA goalie statistics. Butts
has allowed 18 goals in five games,
for a 3.6 per game average, and
has made 141 saves, while Coyle
has let in the same number of
goals in five games, with 138 saves.
The Gophers have used two
goalies in their four league games,

also. Chuck Steinweg has played
three of them, allowing 14 goals
for a 4.7 per game average, with
91 saves. Mike Larson allowed two
goals and made 35 saves in the
other Minnesota league contest.

Today in this age of technology when engineering graduates
are wooed and courted by all of America's great industries, how
do you account for the fact that Rimbaud Sigafoos, who fin-
ished at the very top of his class at M.I.T,, turned down hun-
dreds of attractive job offers to accept employment as a machin-
ery wiper at the Acme Ice Company at a salary of $20 a week
with a twelve-hour day, a seven-day week, and only fifteen
minutes for lunch?
I know what you are thinking: "Cherchez lafemme!" You are
thinking that Mr. Acme, head of the Acme Ice Company, has
a beautiful daughter with whom Rimbaud is madly in love and
he took the job only to be near her.
Friends, you are wrong. It is true that Mr. Acme does have
a daughter, a large, torpid lass named Clavdia who spends all
her waking hours scooping marzipan out of a bucket and staring
at a television set which has not worked in some years. Rimbaud
has not the slightest interest in Clavdia; nor, indeed, does any
other man, excepting possibly John Ringling North.
So how come Rimbaud keeps working for the Acme Ice
Company? Can it be that they provide him with free Marlboro
Cigarettes, and all day long he is able to settle back, make
himself comfortable and enjoy the filter cigarette with the un-
filtered taste?

No, friends, no. Rimbaud is not allowed to smoke qn the job
and when he finishes his long, miserable day he has to buy his
own M[arlboros, even as you and I, in order to settle back and
enjoy that choice tobacco; that smooth, mellow flavor, that in-
comparable filter, that pack or box.
Well, friends, you might as well give up because you'll never
in a million years guess why Rimbaud works for the Acme Ice
Company. The reason is simply this: Rimbaud is a seall
He started as a performing seal in vaudeville. One night on
the way to the Ed Sullivan show, he took the wrong subway.
All night the poor mammal rode the B.M.T., seeking a helping
hand. Finally at kindly brakeman named Ernest Thompson
Sigafoos rescued the hapless Rimbaud.
He took Rimbaud home and raised him as his own, and
Rimbaud, to show his appreciation, studied hard and got ex-
cellent marks and finished a distinguished academic career as
valedictorian of M.I.T.
Rimbaud never complained to his kindly foster father, but
through all those years of grammar school and high school and
college, he darn near died of the heat! A seal, you must re-
