Teams in Contention

Three Michigan Matmen
Seek Individual Crowns

Special To The Daily
'MINNEAPOLIS - Michigan's
wrestling team, on the strength
of a strong overall team perform-
t:: ance in the preliminary round,
finds itself in a first-place tie with
a very strong Iowa squad going
into today's final and consola-
j tion rounds of the Big Ten wrest-
< yling championships being held here
at Williams Arena.
The Wolverines and Hawkeyes
have accumulated a total of 13
r : {.points. Following them are Min-
nesota with 11, defending cham-
pion Michigan State, and sur-
prising Indiana with 9, North-
western with 8, and Wisconsin
with 7. Trailing the rest of the
pack are Purdue, Illinois and Ohio
State with 6, 5 and 3, respectively.
Three Top Men
Captain Don Corriere leads a
three-man Michigan group who
will seek conference crowns in the
finals. Fritz Kellerman and Jack
Barden are the second and third
Wolverine finalists. Corriere and
Kellermann have both won earlier
championships-Corriere at 157 in
1959 and Kellermann at 137 in
1960 and '61.

of eight contests. Rhodes started
things off with a 4-2 decision of
Ohio State's Don Green. Michi-
gan's 130-pounder, Gary Wilcox,
followed up with a 7-6 riding time
decision over Michigan State's Bill
Gucciardo, to whom he had lost
9-2 in a dual meet earlier this
Wins with Forfeit
Kellermann won his preliminary
137-lb. match via a forfeit. His
opponent, Indiana's Don Schultz,
began a takedown in the closing
seconds of the first period but
took a wrong twist and had to
be carried from the mat with a
badly injured lower spine.
Jim Keen followed Kellermann
with an extremely close win over
Wisconsin's Tom Goeters at 147.
Tied at the end of the regulation
period, 1-1, the match went into
a four minute overtime, in which
Keen came from behind 3-0 to tie
it up 3-3 at the end. Keen was
then rewarded a referee's decision.
Wayne Miller suffered the only
preliminary loss for the Wolver-
ines by a score of 6-2 to Min-
nesota's Jim Riefsteck, at 157-lbs.
Corriere Wins Big
Then Corriere took the mat and
proceeded to do everything but
acquire an elusive pin as he
crunched Ohio State's Ron Per-
rin, 10-1.
Barden continued the winning
tradition with a 3-1 decision over
Iowa's Jay Roberts.

MSU winner

Cagers Hope
To Move Up
In Big Teni
It will be a game with modest
gains in mind when the Michigan
basketball team plays host to the
Northwestern Wildcats at 4 p m.
The Wolverines, under the sec-
ond-year direction of Dave Strack,
have made tremendous strides
toward finishing in the first divi-
sion for the third time since 1950.
True, the road will still be bumpy,
since Michigan must play Minne-
sota on the road and Purdue at
home, but today's contest with the
lowly Wildcats should be of some
Near the Bottom
The Wildcats are modestly try-
ing to flee the clutches of the Big
Ten cellar. Only a half-game sep-
arates them from the murky
depths currently occupied by
Michigan State.
Oddly enough, one of North-
western's three wins this year
came against Michigan in Evans-
ton. Strack is the first to admit
the Wildcats won the games on
their own merits but there is sad
expression on his face when he
says it.
Could Have Been
No doubt Strack is thinking that
if his team had won the two games
against Michigan State and North-
western, it would be battling for
third place instead of struggling
for the first division.
Wildcat Coach Bill Rohr is ex-
pected to start 6'9" center Bill
Woislaw against Michigan's short-
er front line. Woislaw was one of
the major reasons the Wildcats
upset Michigan the first time.
"Those big fellows seem to take
one look at our shorter guys and
play more inspired ball," said
Michigan assistant coach Jim
Another sure Wildcat starter is
captain Ralph Wells, the team's
leading scorer with a 13.3 average.
After that the starting lineup is
anybody's guess. Rohr prides him-
self with the fact that every mem-
ber of his squad has started at.one
time or another.
Bill Cacciatore is the second
leading scorer, but hasn't started
a game in a long time.

M' Seek
Track Title
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING-Two pieces of
bad luck eliminated Michigan
State as a contender for the Big
Ten indoor track title here last
night, setting the stage for a close
battle between defending cham-
pion Michigan and Wisconsin.
The Spartans lost crucial points
when speedster Don Voorhees was
unable to compete because of a
kidney infection and soph sensa-
tion John Parker pulled up lame
in the qualifying heat of the 600.
Meanwhile, Wisconsin with 15 and
Michigan with 10 qualified the
most men for this afternoon's
semi-finals and finals.'
The Spartans had some consola-
tion in that another of its soph
phenomenons, Sherman Lewis,
jumped 24'6" to win the broad
jump, the evening's only final.
Halfbacks Compete
In a battle, of Big Ten halfbacks
Ohio State's Paul Warfield nosed
out Michigan'sDave Raimey for
second in the broad jump with a
leap of'24'24". The amazing Rai-
mey, who took up varsity broad-
jumping a mere week and a half
ago, finished a quarter of an inch
behind. Ted Jackson of Indiana
took fourth in the event and Elliott
Williams of . Northwestern was
Wisconsin, making a determined
bid to end Michigan's three-year
title reign, qualified a surprising
six men for today's high and low
hurdles semi-finals.
Leading the Badger hurdlers was
pre-meot favorite Larry Howard
who qu lifled for the semi-finals
in both the lows and highs. Team-
mate Gene Dix also advanced to
both semi-finals, while another
Badwger, Bill Smith, tied the Jeni-
son Field House record in qualify-
ing for the low hurdle semi's. Glen
Van Wormer also qualified for the
low hurdle semi-finals, giving the
Badgers four of the 12 semi-final-
ists in that event.
Defending Champ
Defending champion Bennie Mc-
Rae of Michigan also qualified for
both hurdles semi-finals.
The only other Wolverine to
qualify for two of today's finals
was sprinter Ken Burnley who ran
exceptional heats to place in the
semi-finals of the 60-yard dash
and the finals of the 300.
As expected, Michigan did well
in the middle distance events
qualifying at least one man in
every race except the 440. In the
600, sophomore Mac Hunter made
the finals while in the 880 defend-
ing titlist Ergas Leps and Jim Nea-
husan gave Michigan two of the
six finalists in that event.
Charles Aquino and Jay Samp-
son each picked up thirds in their
respective heats to reach the finals
of the 1000-yard run.

Athletic Heads Acquit Iowa Coach

EAST LANSING W)-Iowa fresh-
man football coach Bill Happel
was exonerated by the Big Ten
yesterday of an alleged recruiting
violation charge brought by Iowa
The case involved quarterback
Mike Cox, an all-state prep from
Ames, Iowa. It was investigated
and reviewed by Big Ten Commis-
sioner Bill Reed who told the ath-
letic directors that he found no
violation involved.
The directors, who now share
with the commissioner the Con-
ference's enforcement program,
concurred in the findings.
Suspend Rule
Faculty representatives suspend-
ed until September, 1962 the "no
spring practice" rule. This regards

football players granted an extra
year of elgibility because they were
lost to the team through early
season injury.
Such players have been required
to stay out of sports entirely to
maintain the extra year of eligi-
bility. They now can compete in
spring drills this year.
To Record Subs
The athletic directors endorsed
a program for recording substi-

tutions in football games. A player
is limited to two appearances each
quarter. Coaches have been using-
an honor system in keeping track
of the substitutions.
A proposal from basketball
coaches for limited freshman com-
petition between schools or smaller
colleges and AAU teams was
passed over by the athletics direc-
tors. Although there was no official
action, this indicated the proposal
was viewed in the negative.
