Keep Unbeaten Records
Northwestern's wrestlers were
anything but Wildcats Saturday
as they meekly succumbed to
Michigan, 20-5, in an afternoon
dual meet at NU's McGaw Hall.
In 72 minutes of wrestling ac-
tion the eight Northwestern mat-
men combined for zero takedowns
(Michigan had 13). That the home
team scored at all is remarkable.
Michigan breezed to decision
victories in the first six bouts for
an 18-0 lead, thus wrapping up
its sixth straight dual win.
The opportunity for a rare shut-
out (Michigan's last whitewash-
ing of a Big Ten team was a 30-0
romp over Purdue in 1930) was
lost as 177-pound Karl Fink drew
with NU's Chris Wunsch, 1-1. This
was worth two points to each
CHREE REMAINING UNBEATENS-Dennis Fitzgerald, Mike Hoyles, and Karl Fink -(from left) have

ioyles is now 6-0-1, Fitzgerald 5-0-0, Fink 5-0-2.

Michigan's gymnasts warmed;
up for Saturday's Big Ten clash;
with Iowa by scoring impressive,
wins against two foes last Satur-j
day at Ohio State.,
The Wolverines took the mea-
sure of the host Buckeyes, 69-39,
and visiting West. Virginia, 59-31,1
running the season's dual meet;
record to 6-2.
"We put on our best perform-
ance of the year," said Coach
Newt Loken. "The boys are be-
ginning to hit on big time routines,
aimed for the Big Ten Meet."
Loken explained that his squad
is practicing hard this month to
Jim Brown, Michigan tum-
bling ace, performed the first
double backward somersault in

yesterday in practice, Coach
Newt Loken excitedly told The
Daily last night. Brown had
been working on this extremely
difficult stunt all year.
perfect new stunts of added length
and difficulty. "Against Ohio
State, they held back nothing in
their routines, and did a fine job,"
"Both Rich Montpetit and Al
Stall did some amazing stunts
Saturday. If we could have only
clicked the same way against Illi-
nois, the result might have been
different," he lamented.
Stall and Montpetit each copped
three firsts to lead the winners,
but Loken held down the score
somewhat against the inferior op-
ponents by having his 'members
work events just for practice with
the scores not counting.
Tom Osterland won the rebound
tumbling event with T. Francis a
close second. "Tom threw a big
time routine and, if he keeps it
up, could be the next Big Ten.
champion. T. was right behind
and would have been up there but
faltered slightly," Loken said.
"Jim Brown also looked great
in winning tumbling. It may well
have been the best performance
of his life," said the Coach. "He
threw his double twister twice,
and said that he will attempt his
double back somersault against
Iowa." Captain Bill Skinner did
not compete in his favorite event
against Brown due to a slight
thumb injury in warm-up.
Loken had one more team mem-
ber to single out in Ken Saka-
