The fabulous sophomores, who
sparked Michigan to the Big Ten
indoor track. championship last
winter, will make their debuts as
juniors Thursday night in the an-
nual pre-Christmas meet at 7:30
in Yost Fieldhouse.
The juniors will join forces with
the seniors, to battle the fresh-
men and sophomores in a 15 event
intra-squad meet.
Leading the parade of junior
standouts is sprinter Tom Robin-

son, Big Ten titleholder in the 60-
and 300-yard events. This will be
the Bahaman speedster's first pub-
lic competition since he seriously
injured his leg last spring. He will
run just the 60-yard event, where
he is co-holder of the Conference
record with 6.1 clocking.
Another Titleholder
Another Big Ten titleholder,
Les Bird, will compete in his spe-
cialty, the broad jump, along with.
running in the 60-yard dash and
the mile relay.

STAN DP

Tony Seth, winner of the 880-
yard event last winter, will run
in the 600-yard event and in the
mile relay.
Versatile Dick Cephas will com-
pete in the 65-yard high and low
hurdles, the 60-yard dash and the
high jump. The Wilmington, Del.,
junior has already posted a 6'63%"
jump in practice-a mark that was
good enough to win the Big Ten
indoor title last winter.
Finished Second
Dave Martin, who finished sec-
ond in the Conference outdoor
mile last spring, will run in the
three-quarter mile. Brian Gibson,
third place winner in the Big Ten
440-yard run last winter, will run
in his specialty. Martin and Gib-
son will also run in the mile relay.
Sprinter John Gregg, second
place winner in the Conference
60-yard event last winter, is en-
tered in the 60- and 300-yard
events.
Speedsters Franic Geist and
Marsh Dickerson will run in the
600-yard event as well as the mile
relay. Jim Wyman and Wally
Schafer will run in the two mile,
while Don Chalf ant and Fred
Montour will compete in four
events apiece.
Top senior hopes rest with Cap-
tain Earl Deardorff in the 880-
yard event, Quinton Sterling in
the 440, Dick Schwartz in the two
mile, and Jack Steffes in the 300-
yard run.

Meeting of Coaches
Michigan's wrestlers should not be criticized if they develop a
slight case of stage fright in tomorrow night's dual meet at Penn State.
The Wolverine matmen are accustomed to performing in dual
meets before crowds numbering 1,500 or less. Tomorrow every seat in
Penn State's 8,000-seat fieldhouse is expected to be filled with wrestling
fans.
They will have been attracted by the prospects of a dual-meet
"natural." Michigan has one of the top two or three teams in the Big
Ten this year, and Penn State has been picked to be the best in the
East.
But the prospect of two good teams squaring off on the mats is
not the only factor creating fan interest for this meet. Coaching the
respective teams will be two of the most successful mentors in the
history of collegiate wrestling, and many fans will show up just to see
the venerable coaches in action.
The coaching careers of Penn State's Charlie Speidel and Michi-
gan's Cliff Keen are strikingly similar. Both started at their respective
universities 'in 1925, and except for a period during World War II
when both were in military service, they have been on their campuses
ever since.
Counting their years as coaches in absentia, both are now be-
ginning their 35th season, and qualify as deans of the coaching staffs
at their respective schools.
During this time, each one has compiled an excellent record in
dual and championship meets. Speidel's dual-meet mark stands at
159 victories, 42 defeats and 10 ties, and prospects are excellent for
improving it. Keen has coached Michigan teams to 180 dual-meet
victories, losing 78 times and drawing 10. Keen's 1959-60 team should
add further gloss to that record.
Speidel has coached seven Penn State teams to Eastern Intercol-
legiate championships, and in 1953 brought the National Collegiate
title to an Eastern school for the first time. Keen counts 10 Big Ten
championships and a like number of second-places, in his career, and
"The only time we entered a full team in the NCAA meet (1939) we
Were runnerup."
Both coaches have long been active as administrators, authors,
and promoters of amateur wrestling. Speidel twice has been president
of the National Collegiate Wrestling Coaches Assn., and Keen has
served as president of the American Wrestling Coaches and Officials
Association.
Speidel recently revised and rewrite the section on wrestling in
the ]Encyclopaedia Britannia's new edition. Keen served on a com-
mittee last year which recommended rules changes to the NCAA. Keen
has also designed new types of knee pads and headguards which sur-
pass the old-style equipment.
Both have done much to promote high school wrestling in their
areas, and both have received many honors for their long. and de-
voted service to the sport.
During the world war, Keen write a book on wrestling for the
Navy's physical fitness program which, the Michigan coach says, "has
had the widest circulation of any book on wrestling." It is presently
in its third edition. Collaborating with Keen in the two revisions of
the book was, approprately enough, Charlie Speidel. "So we're old
enemies and old buddies, too;" Keen says.
Seven times these coaches have clashed in dual meets. The first
time was in 1933, the last, 1941. In those seven meets Michigan won
four, Penn State won three.
The fact that the Wolverines have this edge on the Lions height-
ens tomorrow's meet, for Michigan-is the only school over which Penn
State does not hold a lead. It goes without saying the big partisan
crowd would like to see this advantage disappear.
The Lions, with eight returning veterans, lost only one of their
top five men from last year's Eastern runnerup team. So they are
a formidable opponent. But Michigan's squad, with a few breaks, can
take it. At any rate, as Keen says, "It'll be a terrific meet."
His biggest problem tomorrow may be keeping his team from be-
ing overawed by the 'sight of those 8,000 people.

In a repeat performance of two,
weeks ago, the freshmen and sen-
ior gymnasts will again tangle with
the sophomores and juniors to-
night in the I-M auxiliary gym at
7:30, in an intra-squad meet fea-
turing several special attractions.
The previous meet saw the
frosh-seniors walk away with a
62-40 triumph, but junior all-
around star Rich Montpetit was
a little off that night. Coach Newt
Loken hopes that tonight he will
be back in the form he showed in

LOS ANGELES - The Univer-
sity of Southern California an-
nounced yesterday that Don Clark
has quit as head football coach.
Assistant Coach John McKay
was named head coach.
McKay joined Southern Cali-
fornia as a backfield coach this
season after nine years in a sim-
ilar capacity at the University of
Oregon.

The Cincinnati Reds last night
traded their ace second baseman,
Johnny Temple, to the Cleveland
Indians for pitcher Cal McLish,
second baseman Billy Martin and
first baseman Gordon Coleman.
The deal was completed, a
spokesman said, just before the
midnight deadline 'for trading be-
tween National and American
League teams.
ST. LOUIS - The San Fran-
cisco Giants tightened up their
infield yesterday, acquiring sec-
ond baseman Don Blasingame
from the St. Louis Cardinals for
infielder Daryl Spencer and out-
fielder Leon Wagner.
The Cards plan to use Spencer
at shortstop, his natural position.

the Midwest Open, Dec. 5, to tight-
en up the contest.
As for the special events, the
crowd will be treated to an exhibi-
tion by Carolyn Osborne, Michi-
gan's woman gymnast, who not
only has shown exceptional talent
in the past but has beauty to go
along with it. Her action pictures
are included throughout Loken's
new book on Gymnastics.
Strictly on the gym team side of
it, three Canadian members who
hope to be on their country's
Olympic team for next year's
games will be working on Olympic
routines. They include Montpetit,
along with freshmen Gil LaRose
and Jim Hynds. The latter two
contributed heavily to the win-
ners' total in the earlier intra-
squad affair.
A final added attraction will be
the attempt of tumbler Jim Brown
to execute to perfection the double
backward somersault he has been
working on in practice. He and his
teammates will be getting their
last taste of competition until the
first dual meet of the season, Jan.
8, against Navy Pier of Chicago
at home.
