Wildeats-'Toughest So Far'

M' Icers To Host Return Spartan Match

"It's unquestionably the tough-
est meet so far this season."
Wrestling coach Cliff Keen
made this prophecy yesterday in
reference to tomorrow's meet with
Northwestern at 3 p.m. in Yost
Field House.
The Wildcats were picked in the
preseason polls to finish second
to the Wolverines in the Big Ten.
The two teams squared off in the
Midlands tournament in Decem-
ber, and Keen's matmen squeaked
past Northwestern, 51-49, for the
team title.
The injury count in that meet
was also close. The Wolverines
participated in the tourney with-
out the services of Rick Bay and
Bill Johannesen, while the Wild-
cats did not have co-captains Don
Evans and Jerry Torrence.
Second in Big Ten
Torrence finished second in last
year's 137-pound Big Ten com-
petition. Evans was Big Ten 177-
pound champion two years ago but
missed last season because of a
knee injury. Both of these highly-
touted wrestlers should be ready
to go against Michigan.
The return of Evans comes as a

surprise, since his knee injury
was supposed to keep him out of
any further competition. He will
be faced by Michigan's 177-pound
Chris Stowell,

6-1, in the 1964 Big Ten Meet.
The two have moved up to the
147-pound class and will have a
return match tomorrow.
Meet Again
Bay tangles tomorrow with Stu
Marshall, 167-pound Midlands
Tournament champion. The Mich-
igan captain has been waiting a

long time for this meet, as Mar-
shall drew with him when they
met at Northwestern last year.
"Marshall was on the defensive
in that meet and I had a difficult
time keeping from retreating eff
the mat," Bay recalled yesterday.
In the Chicago holiday tourna-
ment last season, Bay edged Mar-
shall, 3-2 for first place. This
was the only other encounter be-
tween the two wrestlers.
Johannesen, who has recovered
from the side injury that kept
him out of competition last week-
end, will face undefeated 137-
pound Pete Beevers.
Beevers won the Midlands
Tournament by defeating Michi-
gan State's Joe Ganz. Johannesen
also edged Ganz, 3-2, in last year's
Big Ten meet.
Lee Deitrick will test North-
western sophomore Rich Ruben
in the 157-pound contest. Ruben
should be a formidable opponent
according to Keen.
Dick Ernst, who was second for
Northwestern at 177 pounds in
the Midlands tournament, will
move up to heavyweight with
Evans returning to the lineup.
Anchorman Bob Spaly will send
his 10-1-2 record against Ernst.
Keen's lineup also features un-
defeated 123-pound Bob Fehrs and
130-pound Doug Hornung

NEW YORK (P)-High-scoring
left wing Camille Henry was trad-
ed by the New York Rangers to
the Chicago Black Hawks in a
seven - player National Hockey
League transaction yesterday.
Accompanying the 32-year-old
veteran to Chicago were Ranger
farmhands Don Johns, a defense-
man, and Billy Taylor, a center,
plus a player to be named later.
Out of Contention
The fifth-place Rangers, all but
mathematically eliminated f r o m
Stanley Cup playoff contention,
obtained left wings Doug Robin-
son and John Brenneman and de-
fenseman Wayne Hillman from
the Hawks. Chicago is presently
tied for first place with the Mon-
treal Canadiens.
"We've strengthened our
chances of finishing first," Billy

Reay, the Chicago coach, said en-
thusiastically. "Henry will help us
a lot and we're certainly very
happy that he was expendable."
Henry was the most productive
New York scorer this season with
21 goals. His career total for nine-
plus campaigns is 248. He ranked
second to Andy Bathgate as the
highest - scoring Ranger e v e r.
Bathgate had 272 goals for NeW
Add Threat
The transaction gives the Black
Hawks, who have never won a
regular season title, another top
offensive threat to go with Bobby
Hull and Stan Mikita, who are
1-2 in the NHL in total points.
Henry, named to the leagu's
second All-Star team at the sea-
son's halfway mark, is ninth in
the scoring race with 36 points.

Hoping that history will repeat
itself, the Wolverines host the
Michigan Federation Relays to-
morrow afternoon at Yost Field
House beginning at 1 p.m.
Last year, en route to the Big
Ten championship, the cindermen
came up with an excellent per-
formance in a victory which saw
three meet records broken and
two more tied.
Many of the key participants in
that exciting contest are back this
year, and promise to make Satur-
day's meet a good test of Mich-
igan strength.
Representative Meet
The thinclads will be facing
tough opposition Saturday, includ-
ing representatives of Ohio Uni-
versity, Central State College, a
strong Michigan State team, and
W e s t e r n Michigan University,
whom the Wolverines edged inI
Kalamazoo last week and in the!
Relays last year.
One of the most exciting of last
v::ar's performances was a leap of
6'10" in the high jump by Bob
Densham, a mark which broke the
meet record, the Yost Field House
record, and the varsity record, but
gave him only a tie for first with
Jim Oliphant. Densham, a junior,
provides the Wolverines with a
strong threat in this important
Another of Coach Don Can-
ham's returning lettermen is Cap-
tain Kent Bernard, who, in Mich-
igan's two meets thus far, has
shown no signs of slacking off in
a torrid pace begun last year. In
tomorrow's contest he will again
be anchoring the mile relay team,
which he led to a meet and Field
House record of 3:18.5 in the Re-
lays a year ago, and will compete
in the 600-yard run.
The Wolverines had three other
individual winners, of whom only
one, two-miler Ted Benedict, is
running again this year. Hurdler
Cliff Nuttall and shotputter Roger
Schmitt have graduated, but
they've been more than adequately
replaced. Roy Woodton, second to
Nuttall in last year's meet, and
John Henderson, second last week
at Kalamazoo, top the hurdlers,
while Gordon Harvey, who got off
a toss of 55'7" last week, hasI
amply replaced Schmitt.
Other veterans counted on for
strong showings on Saturday are
Dorie Reid, in the 60-yard dash,I
Dan Hughes, running in both the
two-mile relay and the distance-
medley relay, and Des Ryan, also
in the distance-medley.

Competing tomorrow are threet
men who have traded football1
jerseys for track uniforms. Billt
Yearby, All-American tackle, isi
scheduled in shotput, while half-
back Carl Ward and end John
Henderson will run the hurdles. 1
Dave Cooper, in the 60-yard
dash, and Jim Mercer, anchoring1
the distance-medley, head the list
of talented sophomores perform-
ing in tomorrow's meet, along]
with Gordon Harvey. Willie]
Brown, a junior hampered by in-
juries most of last year, is entered
in the 60 and is expected to add to
the Wolverines' already formid-
able talent in this event.-
The meet begins at 1:00 tomor-
row afternoon with a few prelimi-
naries, while the bulk of the
events begin at 6:30 Saturday eve-
ning. There will be a novice meet
tonight, also at the Field House.
The Michigan gymnasts travel
to Madison today for a meet that
might be billed as Fred Roeth-
lisberger versus the University of
Roethlisberger is Wisconsin's
all-around performer and Michi-
gan's chief concern this weekend.
The Menomonee Falls senior could
win six first places and stacks up
as the biggest threat this weekend.
The Wolverines take on the Bad-
gers and then move on to Min-
nesota on Saturday.
"Roethlisberger could be one of
the best in the Big Ten," is Coach
Newt Loken's appraisal. "He works
every event and he has been scor-
ing in the 90's in all of them."
No All-Arounders
Loken is not certain if he will
enter an all-around performer.
The Wolverines are a very special-
ized team, and he may go with
the specialists. If he doesn't (n-
ter an all-around man, Michigan
will have to concede six points,
since the all-around is an event
scored in this year's dual meets.
U -

Coach Loken feels that the Wol-
verines are facing their first real
challenge of the season in this
The Badgers, 8-1 overall, pose
another problem in the form of
Pete Bauer, the gymnastics coach's
son. Bauer beat his Michigan op-
ponent last year in the dual meet,
scoring higher than Wolverine
Captain Gary Erwin on the tram-
poline. He's been averaging 92
points this year, but his perform-
ance tends to be erratic.
Without Blanton
The Blue will not be at full
strength this weekend. Rich Blan-
ton, who competes on the rings
and parallel bars, is in Health
Service with a virus. The rest of
the squad will be heading for
Madison and their first taste of
tough competition.
The Gophers are considered not
quite as tough as the Badgers.
Their squad has not managed a
win this season. Their main
strength lies in Bill Eibrink, a
good all-around man, and Bob
Hoecherl; onthe side horse.
Michigan has built up a dual
meet record of .850, losing only
two meets in the last four years.
The squad boasts the new World
Champion trampoline star, NCAA
and Big Ten champ in Erwin;
Alex Frecska, Big Ten finalist
in four events; Mike Henderson,
past NCAA and Big Ten floor
exercise titlist; high bar perform-
er John Cashman; and the Fuller
twins, Chip and Phil, who special-
ize in floor exercise.
