The Big Ten wrestling coaches
have voted 6 to 4 in favor of
dropping the 115-lb. and 191-lb.
weight classes for the coming year.
This action, taken last week, was
made public yesterday by Michi-
gan wrestling coach Cliff Keen.
However, the decision will not be
official until the Big Ten Athletic
Directors confirm the coachs' ac-
tion at their annual spring meet-
ing which will be held at Iowa City
this weekend.
Trial Basis
These two weights were initiated
on a trial basis this year but obvi-
ously the majority of the confer-
ence coaches felt that the ex-
panded 10-weight card should be
replaced with the former eight
weights. If this action is con-
firmed, and Keen feels confident
that it will, the eight weights next
year will be 123-, 130-, 137-, 147-,
157-, 167-, 177-lbs. and heavy-
Needless to say, this action
should help the Michigan team
considerably in next year's cam-
paign. The team will have three
big holes to fill, namely captain
Dennis Fitzgerald, Jim Blaker and
Karl Fink, and with eight weights
and five returning veterans plus
new material, the team's future
looks considerably brighter.

During the past season


Michigan team had to go through
quite an adaptation with the new
weights. Nick Armelagos, who
never wrestled before he came to
college, and Willard Root had to
be used at 115 and 123 pounds,
and although Armelagos developed
rapidly as the season wore on, he
lost points in the process.

"We just about had to starve
Root to get him down to 115
pounds," Keen commented. And
though Karl Fink, wrestling in the
heavyweight class had a successful
season, his true weight is 177
pounds. .
Michigan in the past has not
built its teams on solid men in
every weight, but rather with out-
standing men in some weights.

On the other hand, Michigan
State, which has a solid wrestler
at every position, will be hurt if
the action goes into effect.
MSU Against
Assistant MSU wrestling coach
Grady Peninger was more than
disappointed with the coachs' ac-
tion. "We at Michigan State are
100 per cent against this action;
in our opinion it doesn't make any'
sense," Peninger said.
"The Big Eight, probably the
strongest wrestling conference in
the country, has added the two
weights, and the Eastern Collegi-
ate Conference has 191 pounds,"
Peninger continued, "and the most
important meet of the year, the
NCAA meet, has 10 weights.
"We think the only reason the
six (schools) voted against it was
that they just got behind in their
recruiting," concluded the defiant
Whatever the case may be, only
the action of the directors will
make the coaches' decision final.

The Ann Arbor Rugby Club
trounced the Minnesota Rugby
Club 36-0 Saturday at Marquette
Park in Chicago to keep its win-
ning streak going in regulation 15-
man Rugby.
The victory preserved an eight
game streak which extends from
the end of last year. However, the
Ann Arbor Ruggers came in second
while competing in the 18 team,
seven man Rugby meet at Toronto
Saturday, May 6.
The team was led Saturday by
ex-Purdue footballer and All-Big
Ten Quarterback Francie Gutman
who scored three "tries". The
"Try" is equivalent to the touch-
down in American football with
the exception that it counts three
Tom Southwell opened the scor-
ing Saturday. Ron Riosti and Cliff
Colwell followed with "tries" to
almost assure the Ann Arbor Rug-
gers of a win, since three or four
"tries" usually proves enough for
a victory.r
The team, however, kept pour-
ing on the steam until it amassed

its 36 point total. Other scorers
besides Gutman were John Nie-
huss, Terry Robinson, John Apple-
ford and Whata Whiniata.
Next Saturday The Ruggers will
meet The St. Louis University
Rugby Club at 2:00 p.m. at Wines
Field for their final game of the
"The St. Louis Club will be very
tough," says Captain Gutman,
"They tied earlier in the season
with both Princeton and Yale i
a four game series."
In previous meets the Ann Arbor
ruggers faced Middlewestern com-
petition and won easily by com-
paratively huge scores. The St.
Louis University Club has also
been successful this year, having
beaten everyone in sight except
for Yale and Princeton.
Saturday's match will prove in-
teresting in that it will provide
the Ann Arbor Rugby club with an
opportunity to compete against a
club on a par with those of the
East where Rugby is an important
spring sport.

The Wolverines' performance in
the field events may be an impor-
tant factor in Michigan's chances
of winning the Western .Confer-
ence Outdoor Track Championship
this Friday and Saturday at Iowa
Although Michigan will not
compete in the discus throw, they
should be strong in the other four
field events: shot put, high jump,
broad jump, and pole vault.
Last year Michigan lost the
Outdoor track title to Illinois.
Michigan finished with 45 points
trailing Illinois by 162 and out-
distancing the third place fin-
ishers, Minnesota, by 191/2 points.
Fail To Win Outdoors
Although Michigan won the In-
door title this year leading their
nearest rivals, Indiana, by 39
points, the, victory certainly doesn't
assure the Wolverines of victory'

Saturday. Last year, as in the
year before, Michigan won the In-
door meet only to lose to Illinois
The field event men held up
admirably well for Michigan in
the Indoor Championship meet
March 4. Ray Locke was second
in the shot put, and Dick Cephas
placed third in the high jump.
Les Bird, running with a bad
leg, made a valiant effort to
match Paul Foreman or Illinois
in the broad jump, but had to set-
tle for second. In the other in-
door field event, the pole vault,
Steve Overton and Rod Denhart
£received points for managing to
take two of the four positions in
a four way tie for third place.
Locke in Shot Put
In the shot put, Locke will face
Bill Brown of Illinois in what may
turn -into a two man contest.
Brown won the Indoor title this

spring with a toss of 54'6%".
Locke captured the outdoor title
last year with a heave of 55'/2".
Dick Cephas may not compete
in' the high jump in order to run
on a relay team and concentrate
on the hurdles, his specialty.
Mike Johnson of Purdue will be
strong again in the pole vault.
He won the Indoor event this
year with a vault of 14'6%". Over-
ton and Denhart of Michigan will
compete for the Wolverines. Both
will be counted on for points this
Bird May Be Hampered
Les Bird is a question mark.
His leg has been bothering him.
Coach Canham commented:
"Les rested his leg last week
and is doing light workouts now.
He will compete at Iowa City, and
we are keeping our fingers cross-
ed hoping his leg holds up."
Bird is hoping to beat Foreman
in the broad jump for personal
reasons. The Illinois star edged
Bird out for a position on the Brit-
ish West Indies Olympic team last
Canham made it clear that shot-
putter Ray Locke "will not enter
the discus throw as he did last
Friday at Western Michigan."
Canham, commenting on Michi-
gan's surprise defeat at the hands
of Western Michigan Friday, said:
"Friday's meet was not as im-
portant as the Big Ten Champion-
ships. We are concentrating on
the meet this weekend at Iowa

Lou Ciotti and Gary Moosekian'
had three hits apiece to lead the
Hayden "A" softball team to an
18-12 triumph over the Anderson
House "A" team in a makeup game
played yesterday at Ferry Field.
Both Ciottiand- Moosekian had
home runs for the winners. In
addition, Cidtti clubbed a double
and a single, and Moosekian had
a triple and a single. But the real
hitting star of the game was An-
derson's Frank Del Vero, who
belted two home runs in three
trips to the plate. Del Vero's sec-
ond circuit blast came after Hay-
den pitcher Neil Keats had decided
to intentionally walk Del Vero with
first base open and two men on.
dThe Hayden catcher, however,
did not' agree with the strategy
and with an intentional 3-0 count
on Vero, Keats was ordered to
pitch to him. Del Vero promptly
caught hold of the first strike
thrown by Keats and boomed it to

deep left center for a three-run
Gary Van Pelt, who also had a
home run in the game, was the
starter and loser for Anderson. He
was relieved by Cyril Barnet in
the third inning. Barnert turned
