Michigan Grapplers Bow;
Penn State Wins, 19-12

Juniors Dominate Intra-eSquad Track
Contest; Seth, Cephas, Robinson Star


Special to The Daily
plers from Michigan found the'
going uneasy at Penn State last
night, as the powerful Nittany
Lions out-maneuvered the visiting
Wolverines, 19-12.
Michigan; missing Dennis Fitz-
gerald in the 167-pound class,
might have taken the match if
Wolverine John Hallenbeck had
won a decision victory instead of
being pinned, Coach Cliff Keen
4 At any rate, the Wolverines
showed their strength as they
closely battled Penn State to the
end. In contrast to this meet, it
is interesting to note that Penn
State has two previous shut-out
victories. These were a 31-0 vic-
tory over Army and a 30-0 win
over Colgate.
The Wolverines opened the
night with a draw in the 123-
pound match, in which Mike
Hoyles almost dumped Penn
State's Tony Scordo for an M'
But the referees, instead of giv-
ing Hoyles two points on a bor-
derline decision, called the match
a 3-3 draw.
In the 130-pound weight class,
Michigan's Ambi Wilbanks knock-
ed off Penn State senior, Gordon
Danks, 4-2. This was Wilbanks
first collegiate match. The win
was captured in the last 30 sec-
onds, as Wilbanks maneuvered
Danks into a nifty two - point

In the 137 class another Michi-
gan matman was eyeing a victory
in his first collegiate match. But
he - Fritz Kellerman - was un-
successful in his initial attempt.
Kellerman was pinned by Penn
State senior Guy Guccione with
10 seconds remaining in the first
period. Both men fought hard
which was demonstrated by the
0-0 score before the pin was af-
Guccione was third last year in
the 137-pound class in the East-
ern Regional Meet.
In the 147-pound competition,
'M' wrestler Jim Blaker astounded
the 8,000 capacity crowd as he
completely outclassed Penn State
Captain, Sam Minor, 2-1. Minor
was runner-up in this weight divi-
sion at the Easterns last year.
Blaker, in one of his greatest
performances, scored on a two
point first-period takedown and
made those points hold up for the
rest of the match. He also had the
Penn State captain in pin holds
twice during the event.
Meanwhile the Nittany Lion's
Jerry Secker edged Dick Fronczak,
6-4. Fronczak fell behind 3-0, at
the end of the first period, but
from then on held his opponent
At 167-pounds one of Penn
State's best men, sophomore Ron
Pifer, pinned Wolverine grappler
John Hallenbeck with 20 seconds
to go in the first period.
Hallenback showed some class,
however, in his first collegiate
match as he held the Penn State
matman at an even 0-0 count till
the pin.
In the 177-pound competition
Karl Fink of Michigan battled
Hank Barone to an even standoff,
1-1. ;Fink was the aggressor of
the match, but Barone continually
eluded him for the draw.
The heavyweights - Michigan's
Fred Olm and Penn State's Johns-
ton Oberly - battled to an un-

usual 0-0 draw. Oberly. at 270
pounds, outweighed his Michigan
opponent by better than 50
But it was Olm who stole the
show. He was superior to Oberly
in every respect but the score.
And at the end of the match the
Penn State "tank" was completely
Oberly was second in the East-
erns last year, while taking fourth
in the NCAA Meet.
Tonight the Wolverines move
over to Syracuse to face another
of the top-ranked teams in the
East. However, Michigan team
members and coaches are confident
of a win after their impressive
showing at Penn State.
Syracuse at present has a 1-1
record with the loss being a dis-
puted decision with Lehigh.
Michigan will make two lineup
changes. Wilf Hildebrandt will re-
place Kellerman, while Ted Lud-
wig, in his first collegiate match,
will replace Hallenbeck.

RACE TO THE WIRE-Sophomore Ergas Leps nips junior Marsh
Dickerson at the wire in the mile relay event at the intra-squad
meet last night. Leps' time for the quarter mile was :49.3.

Junior class members showed
why they are considered the
"heart" of the Michigan track
team last night as they took nine
of 15 first places in the annual
pre-Christmas intra-squad meet at
Yost Fieldhouse.
Spectacular performances among
the third year men included Tony
Seth's record breaking 600-yard
run, Dick Cephas' three first places
and sprinter Tom Robinson's
sparkling return to t:ie cinderpath.
Racing along with a beautiful
machine-like stride, Seth ran the
600 yards in 1:11.2--good enough
to break the Michigan varsity rec-
ord of 1:11.4 held by Bob Ufer and
to tie the Yost FieIdhouse record
set by Purdue's sensational Dave
Mills last winter.
His time was just a second off
the Big Ten record held by Dave
Lean of Michigan State.
Three Firsts
Cephas won both the 65-yard
high and low hurdles and the high
jump in a sparkling performance.
His time in the highs was :8.4,
and in the lows, :7.6. His 6'4" leap
easily led the high jump field.
Bahaman bombshell Tom Robin-
son put on a performance in the
60-yard sprint dash that lifted the
hearts and hopes of Wolverine
track fans. Running in public
competition for the first time since
he seriously injured his leg last
spring, Robinson showed signs of
MSU 82, Nebraska 80 (2 ovt.)
Depaul 77, Ohio U. 54
Princeton 79, Rutgers 63
Akron 70, Denver 60
Niagara 81, Georgetown (D.C.) 80

Also postig first places for the
juniors were John Gregg with a
:32.5 time in the'300-yard run,
tLes Bird with 23'3" leap in the
broad jump, Brian Gibson with a
50.8 clocking in the quarter-mile
and Fred Mountour in the half
Freshmen Impressive
Michigan's freshmen made their
Arn Arbor debut an impressive
one as they picked up three first
places and would have been sec-
ond to the juniors in total points
if official score had been kept.
The frosh picked up a good
share of their points in the field
events, where Doug Eggleston and
Steve Overton tied for first in the
pole vault at the 12'2" mark and
Terry Trevarthen won the shot
put with a 49'5" toss. The other
freshmen winner was Jim Reilly
in the 1,000-yard run.
A very impressive runner-up to
Cephas In both hurdle events was
freshman Dave Theriot. He posted
a :7.4 clocking in winning the
preliminary for the 65-yard highs
while Cephas won his heat in :7.6.
However, in the final heat Theriot

Ergus Leps led the sophomores
to their two first places of the
night. The Canadian yearling ran
a spectacular :49.3 anchor leg on
the winning mile relay team.
Coming out of the final turn
approximately eight yards behind
junior Marsh Dickerson, Leps
turned it on and just nipped Dick-
erson at the wire. Dickerson turned
in a creditable :49.6 in the eve-
ning's most exciting race.
Leps also came from behind-
although not as spectacularly --
to win the three-quarter mile run
in 3:05.2.
The seniors lone victory in the
meet was Dick Schwartz's 9:39.0
clocking in the two mile run.

'' lers To Face Toronto in Rematch

For that lonely handful of stu-'
dents and townspeople left behind
in the rush home for Christmas
vacation, Michigan's hockey team
will face Toronto at 8:00 tonight
and tomorrow on the Coliseum ice.
The Wolverines will be facing
one of the traditional powers in
Canadian collegiate hockey, al-
though this year the team has
been hard hit by graduation losses.
Included among the ten lettermen
lost from last year's team which
won the Canadian national cham-
pionship was Red Stephens, an
eight-letter man for the Blue with
all eight coming in hockey.
This was possible because of the
Canadian college rules which al-
low a man to compete in a sport
as long as he is a student in the
university. Thus the 28-year old
Stephens played hockey through-
out his graduate work also.
Beat Toronto Earlier
The Wolverines have met this
team once already this year and
walked off with an easy 5-1 win
on Toronto's home ice.
This previous decision, coupled
with the rule differences in the
two countries, combines to make
Michigan a slight favorite in the
weekend action.

When the two teams met in
Toronto, they played under Cana-
dian rules which allow checking
anywhere on the ice and which
call icing on a puck that crosses
just one blue line and the red
line. The different American rules
may slow the invaders down.
Michigan coach Al Renfrew is
making no predictions, as usual,
but is cheered by the return to
action of Al Hinnegan, the center
on the sophomore line, who has
been out' of action with a bad leg
since the game in Toronto, three
weeks ago.
Coyle Impressive
Renfrew also reports that
married life seems to agree with
goalie Jim Coyle. He noted that
the recently-wedded Coyle is cur-
rently carrying a respectable 2.5
goals per game average, including
two shutouts.
These two shutouts tie the
Michigan record for white-wash-
ings set by Willard Ikola in the
1951-52 season as a sophomore
and tied by him in both his junior
and senior years.
Pacing the Wolverine scoring
parade thus far has been Bob
White with two goals and 12
assists for 14 points. But the lead-
er in goals scored is sophomore

center Bill Kelly who has been
Johnny - on - the - spot for seven
tallies. His three assists tie him
with Steve Bochen for second
place in the scoring with 10 points
The Wolverine attack has
clipped along at an average of
six goals per game, as they have
never gone with less than four
tallies and twice have scored eight

As another year passes by, we sincerely
hope our many patrons and friends enjoy
the merriest Christmas they've ever had!

The Wolverine cagers move into

Holiday Basketball Classic Mon-
day, Dec. 28, at 7:30 p.m. (P.S.T.),
when they face UCLA in the third
game of the Los Angeles Invita-

Renfrew's squad will be facing
a team that is unknown in the
mid-west. The Canadians, sup-
posedly composed of ex-collegiate
stars and a few ex-semi pro play-

Oakland, Pheonix and Alberquer-
The cagers on the other hand
know what they will be up against
in the coast tourney. Besides
UCLA, the other teams include de-
fending NCAA Champion Cali-
fornia and runner-up West Vir-
ginia, Southern California, a team
that has already beaten perennial
power Kentucky, and Big Ten
rivals Northwestern and Illinois.
The eighth team to see action will
be Stanford.
All of the games will be played
in the beautiful Los Angeles Me-
morial Sports Arena. The huge
palace also will host the hockey
team in its pair of encounters.
The schedule for the teams on
the coast will be a very tight one.
With' the opening hockey game
slated for Saturday night, the
arena will have artificial ice on
the floor. However, all-of the teams
in the basketball tournament are
supposed to practice in the arena
on Sunday, with Michigan work-
ing out in the morning.
This will necessitate the laying
of the basketball floor over the
ice, and then removing it, so that

the second Michigan hockey game
can be played on Sunday night.
The cagers, playing in a holiday
tournament for the second" year in
succession, face a tougher field
than last year. In the Motor City
Tourney last Christmas the Wol-
verines racked up easy wins over

Michigan may be hampered by
the possible ineffectiveness of Cap-
