It's some kind of magic the way

The veteran Wolverine mat
aster has the touch: Keen's
ams have won 10 Big Ten titles
nd have 31 times finished in the
p three since he took over the
aching reins back in 1925.
Come and Go
Stars may come and stars may
, but each, time wrestling season
lls around Michigan is well-
ocked. Take this year for exam-
e. Gone: Fritz Kellermann,
ree-time conference champion,

They watched Rick Bay, Bill

And all the sadists watched Lee

An ignoble start against the
me crowd for a sophomore, to
sure. But Deitrick, one of Coach
en's most brilliant prospects,

ant's repose and promptly man-1
ndled Allen for an 8-4 decision.

Deitrick got off to a tough start
his collegiate debut, losing at
ledo in a pre-season match and1
en nipped against Penn State,
1, in the season opener. But

then in a stunt that he himself
calls "unbelievable," the Lock Ha-
ven, Pa., soph grabbed a first
place for the Ann Arbor crew in
the Wilkes Tournament, flatten-
ing Navy's Bob Sanders in the
finals, 8-3. (Sanders had defeated
John Zolicoff, who won the event
last year, 3-2).
The biggest win in the tourney,
though, according to Deitrick, was
a 5-4 decision over Bill Trexler,
formerly of Maryland and na-
tional YMCA champion. Trexler
fell, 5-4.
Win at Pitt
Into winning stride, Deitrick
picked off a 5-3 win against Pitts-
burgh, an escape and take-down
bringing him from the lower half
of a 2-1 deficit.
Deitrick got started on wrestling
in the eighth grade - and in four
years he was Pennsylvania state
champ at 133 pounds. He credits it
to his good high school coaching,
but whatever the case, his quick-
ness and strength are bound to be
a great asset to Keen's lineup.
"For a sophomore he's doing
well," says the head coach. "I've
seen Big Ten champions start the
same way. After those first two
losses he's really been improving."
Assistant Coach Doug Blubaugh
echoes the same. "He's really com-
ing along - and doing a lot of
work on his own."

Deitrick came to Michigan with
the idea of teaching mathematics
in mind, but he's also interested
in coaching his sport. As for
wrestling here at Michigan: "I
love it."
Well crunched after that knee
to his gastrointestinal tract last
Saturday, Deitrick really came
forth with a champion effort to
defeat NU's.Allen. A hearty breed,
those grapplers.
Michigan's wrestlers are inac-
tive until Feb. 2, when they travel
to Minneapolis to take on Minne-
sota's Gophers. Their next home
meet is Feb. 9 with Ohio State.

SOPH STAR-Lee Deitrick hauls down Northwestern's Mike Allen in Michigan's 18-10 Big Ten
debut Saturday. Deitrick won here, 8-4, for his second straight dual-meet victory. He took a first
place at the Wilkes Tournament earlier this year. Deitrick is another of Coach Cliff'Keen's sopho-
more finds who promises to be of great help to the Wolverines in the future.

a college coach thinks the
rule gives him license to
with strict offensive and de-
re units as he could 10 years
he may be in for a shock,"
Dave Nelson, head coach of
vare University in Newark,

No Specialists
"We are not returning to the
era of the specialist, the half-
football player. Coaches will have
to continue teaching the boys on
both offense and defense and we
still must have, with a few excep-
tions, a team of complete
NCAA Secretary
Nelson is secretary of the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associ-
ation rules committee which over
the weekend overhauled the sub-
stitution rule among other changes
for the 1963 season.
"I was surprised in reading the
reaction to the rule to find so
many coaches who felt this was
move back to the free-wheeling
days of 1952," Nelson said from
his Delaware office.
Main Provisions
Main provisions of the new rule
are these:
1) Unlimited substitution may;
be made by either team during all
time outs except on fourth down
or on the down immediately after,
the ball changes hands.
2) On fourth down or on the
down immediately following
change of possession, a team may
substitute two players or more on
a "wild card" basis.

Under the rules last year there
was a limit to the number of
times a player might re-enter a
game and a wild card substitute
could be inserted at any time. Un-
der the free substitution rule,
abandoned after the 1952 season,
a coach could substitute any num-
ber of players at any time.
"When the rules committee pre-
pared to draft the new rule it
was directed to try to meet three
main objectives," Nelson explained.
No More Messengers
"One was to do away with hav-
ing to record every substitute,
another was to eliminate the mes-
senger service a coach sending in
a play on every down and the
third was to retain the necessity
to coach both ways (offense and
"The free substitution rule elim-
inated the first of these problems.
By limiting the two wild card men
to two particular downs we got'
rid of the second. Restriction on
wholesale substitutions covered
the third category.
"Perhaps some coaches feel that
the rule will give them a chance'
to turn out specialized offensive
and defensive teams, as in 1952,
but they would be taking a great

my offensive team on the field
and am trying to move the ball
from deep in my own territory.
Suddenly, I lose the ball through]
a fumble or an interception. I
Stuck on DefenseI
"Unless there is a time out, I
can only send two men into the
game, so I am stuck with the situ-
ation of defending my goal with
nine men who haven't been taught
defense. If my time outs are ex-
hausted, I might never get my de-
fensive team back in the game."

CHICAGO (P)-Two high rank-
ing officials of the U.S. Olympic
Committee were accused by the
AAU in a report yesterday of sid-
ing with the NCAA and thereby
jeopardizing their jobs.
They are Kenneth L. (Tug) Wil-
son, former Big Ten commissioner,
president of the U.S. Olympic
Committee, and Asa Bushnell, sec-
retary. Bushnell also is commis-
sioner of the Eastern College Ath-
letic Conference.
Hull Accuses
The charge that they supported
the NCAA-backed federation move
and may lose their positions was
reported by Chicago's American
as made by Col. Donald Hull,
AAU executive director.
"By doing so they violated in-
ternational rules, which say that
support may not be given to any
group other than that which is'
recognized for international com-
petition, namely the AAU," thej
newspaper quoted Hull as saying.
"They can't seem to divorce'
themselves from the NCAA in this
matter, and they could lose their
jobs on the United States Olympic
Wilson Skeptical
Wilson said he was trying to4
reach Hull by telephone in New
York "to hear such a charge from
his own mouth."
Bushnell, vacationing in Ari--t
zona, and Hull were not immedi-
ately available for comment.
But Avery Brundage, president
of the International Olympic Com-
mittee, told The Associated Press:
"I have heard criticism that some
Olympic officials are being parti-
san. But I have tried to stay outt
of the bitter dispute between thet

referred to by Hull in his reportedt
Prepare for Meeting1
Meanwhile the AAU and NCAA1
were laying ground work for their
weekend meeting with Gen. Doug-
las MacArthur in New York in an
effort to follow President Ken-i
nedy's request to arbitrate thet

controversy over control of U.S
amateur sports.
Typical of how track plans can
be caught in the middle of the
hassle are those of Ted Haydon,
University of Chicago track club
coach. He is planning for the
ninth annual Chicagoland Open
meet in the university's fieldhouse
Many colleges in the area are
interested in sending their ath-
letes to the meet.
Should Recognize USTFF
"The University Track Club is
an AAU club operating in the fa-
cilities of the university which is
a member of the NCAA, one of
the constituents of the U.S. Track
and Field Federation," Haydon
"We recognize that the AAU has
sole authority to sanction open
competition in the U.S. by virtue
of its membership in the Interna-
tional Amateur Federation. Buc
we also feel that we should rec-
ognize the U.S. Track Federation's
right to sanction participation in
meets by its members.
"We want dual sanction, but the
AAU has refused its sanction if
the federation sanction is obtain-
No Sanction Needed
"Unless dual sanction is given.
thus preventing any ineligibility
rulings of the athletes by the AAU,
we plan to bypass the whole sit-
uation by holding a practice meet
which does not need any sanction.
No medals, no scores, no entry
fees and no admission charges
will be involved. The boys want
to run and they'll just come here
to do that."
Among members of the Univer-
sity of Chicago Track Club are
two former Olympians, hurdlers
Willie Mays and sprinter Ira
Muchison, as well as Brooks Rob-
inson, one of the country's ace
sprinters at present.
One Meet So Far
The only dual sanctioned trackC
meet held thus far was the track
club on Dec. 20. Both the AAU
