Matman Stowell Goes for Pins

'M' Swimmers Invade Dangerous Minnesota

If you have ever felt that the
only way to diplomatically deal
with the Russians is to get out
there and fight like a wrestler,
then maybe you'll think that
Michigan's Chris Stowell is just
what the State Department needs.
Stowell is a 20-year-old junior
wrestler who every weekend takes
on opponents at 177 pounds for
coach Cliff Keen and the Michi-
gankwrestling team. During the
week, he studies toward becoming
a diplomat for the State Depart-
Stowell was reared on a ranch
near Broken Arrow, Oklahoma,
where he used to keep in shape by
running to .the barn and back. Al-

though Oklahoma is regarded as
one of the most productive states
for wrestlers, Stowell decided to
go to prep school in the East, at
the Hill School in Pottstown, Pa.
Others from Hill
Hill School is the alma mater of
about a dozen of Michigan's best
wrestlers. In fact his wrestling
coach there, Frank Bissell, was a
former Michigan captain and na-
tional champion.
While at Hill, Stowell quarter-
backed the football team and pole
vaulted for the track team. His
true prowess, however, was in
wrestling where he was defeated
only once in his junior year before
going undefeated in his senior
year. He was also the 157-pound
champ of the Lehigh Interscholas-
tic Tournament in his senior year.
After going to an all-men's prep
school, Stowell decided to go to a
coeducational college, preferably
one which was also a wrestling
college. That's why he chose
Michigan over-ePrinceton, where
he had also been accepted. This,
of course is in addition to the fact
that both his football and wrestl-
ing coaches at Hill were Michigan

of THE

While wrestling for Michigan,
Stowell has made "terrific ac-
complishments" according to Keen
in becoming a "colorful competi-
tor" who is "dangerous all the
time he is out there." Keen also
calls his boy a "crowd pleaser"
and "a pinner."
Stowell also thinks of himself
as a pinner. College wrestling is
usually a sport in which you have
to pace yourself in order to come
out on top. In high school wrestl-
ing, the idea is to go all out and
try to get the pin. Stowell has re-
tained this idea and perfected it
to such an extent that a few
weeks back he pinned his oppon-
ent in just :33. Stowell has pinned
most of the opponents he has
beaten in his two-year college ca-
Psychological, Too
Stowell regards wrestling as
both a physical contest and a
psychological contest. He says
that he wrestles best when he is
all tensed up. If he does not have
much respect for an adversary,
then he is not likely to wrestle as
well as if he were scared of his
Last Saturday's match with
Ohio State is an excellent example
of what can happen when Stowell,
or anyone relaxes against an op-
Stowell was winning handily
after the first period of his match
but he lost in the second period
when the Buckeye's Glen McQuer-
ry surprised him with a cradle and
a pin. According to Keen this
was "one of those things which
probably happen once in every
1000 times."t
Diplomatic CareerI
As far as Stowell's post-colleget
plans are concerned, he would2
like to study at a diplomatic
school in Italy before entering into
the field of diplomacy. He has
been preparing himself for thisc
end by taking courses in bothY
English and Russian.
If Stowell accomplishes as much
in the diplomatic service as he
has on the wrestling mat, there is
little doubt that the Russians will
have their hands full.

The Michigan and Minnesota
swimming teams engage in a dual
meet tonight in Minneapolis, the
winner to be designated as the
second-best in the Big Ten.
Both teams have already lost to
powerful Indiana but are other-
wise undefeated. Barring an up-
set, it seems certain that one of
these two teams is in line for the
runner-up spot at the Big Ten
Championships. Michigan has oc-
cupied this position the past three
years with Minnesota in third
place the last two seasons.
Coach Gus Stager thinks that
this meet will be indicative of how
each team will place in the Big
Tens, especially since the 12-place
scoring system at the conference
meet makes team depth import-
ant. However, it must be remem-
bered that last season Minnesota
pulled a 54-51 upset over the Wol-
verines in Ann Arbor yet still
finished behind the Wolverines at
'the Big Ten Meet.

NCAA winning medley relay and
was on the NCAA third-place
freestyle relay team last season.
However, all other members of
these two relay teams will be fac-
ing the Wolverines tonight. This
means that the Wolverines start
out the meet with the distinct pos-
sibility of losing both relays.
Stager figures this to be the
closest contest for the Wolverines
this season, as they attempt to
make their season dual meet rec-
ord 4-1. Minnesota has three
"sure" winners in butterflyer Walt
Richardson, breaststroker Virgil
Luken, and freestyler Mike Stauf-
Richardson, a defending Big
Ten champion, has only been
beaten this season by Indiana's
awesome one-two punch of Larry
Schulhof and Fred Schmidt.
Michigan captain Jeff Moore wiill
be aiming for a needed second
place while Wolverine Bill Spahn
and Gopher Ray Ellis can fight it
out for third.
Luken, now a senior, was an
N C A A 200-yard breaststroke
champion as a sophomore. He and
sophomore Joe Clack took the top
two places against two highly re-
garded Indiana swimmers last
January 11. Luken's 2:18.5 time in
that meet shows he'll be hard to
beat tonight.
Michigan's Geza Bodolay is un-
defeated since the Indiana meet
and is the leading hope for the
Wolverines in this race. Sopho-

The Eagles went. ahead 41-40

Ohio State is coming to town to-
morrow to challenge the Univer-

Six men from each school vwill

in the afternoon. Representing
the University will be Mike Mc-

The best handball player on
campus, however, may not be
playing for Michigan. Steve Aug-
ust is taking part ,in the state
handball tournament and probab-
ly won't be able to play against
the Buckeyes.
There is no formal schedule of

-Michael Rutkowski

Stauffer is Minnesota's replace
ment for Steve Jackman. He has
not lost a race this season in his
specialties, the 50- and 100-yard
freestyle events. He was especially
impressive in beating the Michi-
gan State sophomore freestyle
corps in these two events.
Rich Walls and Bob Tanner are
Michigan hopefuls in the sprints.
Walls has gone under 49 seconds
at 100 yards and thinks he can
beat Stauffer if he can go out
the first 50 as fast as he plans.
Michigan's strength is with Bill
Parley in the distance freestyle,
Ed Bartsch in the backstroke, and
Ed Boothman, Bruce Brown, and
John Candler in the diving.
Parley, although ill recently, is
a good bet for firsts at 200 and 500
yards. He holds varsity and pool
records at both distances. His
1:46.49 time in the 200 is almost
equal to the old NCAA record.
He will be challenged by senior
Ralph Allen who holds the Minne-
sota varsity record of 1:48.6. Walls
or Frank Berry will back Parley
up in this event. At 500 yards
Minnesota is weak and either Jeff
Longstreth or Tom Dudley can
help Farley smash this event.
Bartsch, whose best time has
been around 2:00 this season,
should take a first over Gopher
Bud Ericksen who hasn't done un-
der 2:04. Sophomore Geoff O'Atri
could beat out Ed Oberg for a
third place.
Sophomore Hubert White is the
only diver the Gophers have. He
will likely be shut out of the first
two places by either Boothman,
Brown or Candler.
Probably the closest event of
the meet will be the 200-yard in-
dividual medley. Michigan's D'Atri
and Lanny Reppert have usually
been neck-and-neck at the finish
this season, and Gopher John
Bergman has turned in compar-
able times.
Wisconsin has two sophomores
from Michigan who have shown
good potential so far. Mark Marsh,
sprinter from Grosse Pointe, Is
the best the Badgers have at
these distances. Bob Blanchard,
breaststroker, from Dearborn has
done a 2:20 time which is good
enough to challenge Bodolay and
Rabinovitch. Another fine sprint-
er is Graham McMillan who has
done 22.2 for the 50-yard free-

verines again travel to a foreig

NEW YORK UP) - Little Tom
O'Hara of Chicago Loyola raced
to a record indoor mile of 3:56.6
last night in the New York A. C.
Games in Madison Square Garden.
O'Hara, who runs with a wierd,
arm-flapping gait, his arms flail-
ing and his hands occasionally
nervously plucking at his running
togs as if he were trying to keep
his pants from falling down, bene-
fitted from a brilliant bit of pac-

door record of 3:58.6 set by Jim
Beatty of the Los Angeles Track
Club Feb. 15, 1963, a race in which
O'Hara pushed the California run-
ner to the triumph.
Last night, O'Hara, who says
he trains "on Mom's Irish cook-
ing," blasted to the record with
a fantastic :55.0 final quarter,
while the Garden crowd of 13,677
howled "Go, go, go."

door effort this season was 4:00.6,
"I think I can beat Snell's world

the indoor 60 mark for the fourth
