In the books, the 1964 holidays
will be registered as one of the
most successful ever for the Mich-
igan wrestling team.
After overpowering two of the
East's finest teams, Penn State
and Cornell in mid-December, the
Wolverines returned to the Mid-
west and walked off with the
Midlands Open Tournament inj
La Grange, Illinois.
The two Eastern victories werel
the 22nd and 23rd straight dual
meet victories for the matmen,
who will see action Saturday at
Pittsburgh, their final non-con-
ference opponent before the Big
Ten opener at Illinois.
The holiday success, however,
was costly.

Stowell also suffered minor in-
juries, but both have recovered
In light of these injuries, it
isn't surprising that Keen was
even more pleased with the holi-
day victories.
"The boys showed tremendous
stamina," said Keen after the
Midlands Tournament, "If we can
get healthy we'll still he in con-
tention for the Big Ten title."
Part of the reason for Keen's
satisfaction, of course, is due to
the showing of the Wolverines in
the East, after %vhich Keen con-
"We haven't got a weak man at
any point. We may get licked,
but it'll take a good team."
In a hard fought battle before
a capacity crowd at Penn State,
the Wolverines used a pin by 130-
pounder Doug Hornung and vic-
tories in the meet's final two
matches to gain a 17-9 victory.
After Bob Fehrs lost a 10-6
decision in the opening 123-pound
match, Hornung pinned Lion Jim
Purdy at 2:10 of ;he first period,
and Michigan never trailed again.
Close Gap
The Wolverines bettered the
Lions in the 137- and 157-pound
classes, with Johannesen and
Deitrick scoring victories, but the
Lions gained wins at 147 and 167
to move to within two points of
the visitors, 11-9.
Chris Stowell, however, added
three more points to the Michigan
total with an impressive 5-1 win
at 177, and Bob Spaly finished off
the home team with a 5-0 shut-
out victory in the heavyweight
In the Cornell meet, the Wol-
verines took advantage of two
wins and a draw in the first three
matches to coast to a 19-8 victory.
Tino Lambrose posted a tight

feated Bob Stock in the 123-pound

were able to gain a first, a second
and a third to take the Trophy.
Northwestern's two firsts and
one second helped them to the
runnerup spot, while Michigan
State placed third with a first
and two seconds.
Michigan's only title-winner
was Fehrs, who wrestled in the
123-pound division. Ironically,
Fehrs had to beat teammate Lam-
brose for the title. Lambrose, how-
ever, was wrestling unattached,
since only one team representa-
tive per weight class is allowed.
Had he defeated Fehrs, the Wol-
verines would have lost the team
title. As it was, Fehrs emerged
with a 5-2 decision in one of the
night's closest matches.
Upset Victory
On his way to the finals, Lam-
brose pulled one of the meet's
biggest upsets, defeating Terry
Finn of Southern Illinois, 5-2.
Finn was the 1964 123-pound
NCAA champion.
Michigan State had wrestlers
in the finals of the "130, 137 and
147 pound brackets. Only 147-
pounder Dick Cook gained a vic-
tory, while Don Behm, 130 pounds,
and Joe Ganz, 137 pounds, both
placed second.
Spaly wrestled to the consola-
tion or third-place title, with vic-
tories over two of his teammates,

Bob Koehler and Dave Porter.
Spaly pinned Koehler in the semi-
finals of the consolation bracket.
and then accepted a forfeit win
over Porter, who was advised not
to compete due to a sprained
Despite the ankle injury, Keen
called Porter's performance dur-
ing the meet "terrific," and cited
his match with world champion
Larry Cristoff as one of the high-
lights of the meet.
Porter lost that one, 6-5, but
nearly upset Olympian Kristoff,
who eventually took the heavy-
weight title.
Another one of the highlights
that Keen referred to was the
performance of Jim Kamman in
the 147-pound division. Kamman
was forced to wrestle unattached,
since Cal Jenkins was chosen the
Michigan representative. Victim-
ized by a pin in the tournament's
second round, Kamman rebounded
to take the consolation title.
Still Contenders
It may well be that the Wolver-
ines limped home January first.
But in light of their performances
both in La Grange and in the
East, you can be sure ghat no one
will be counting them out of the
Big Ten title fight.

Perhaps the most impressive of
the honors bestowed on Michigan's
football players this season was
the selection of Bob Timberlake as

Smashed Record
Timberlake, who set a new
