COACH SEES BRIGHT FUTURE
Fraser earns All-American honor
BY DREW SHARP
Michigan's Steve Fraser earned All-
American status for the second time in
three years this weekend when he
finished fifth overall in the 177 weight
class at the NCAA Wrestling Cham-
pionships at Corvallis, Oregon.
The senior ° from Hazel Park,
Michigan, had a 5-2 record during the
meet and narrowly lost to eventual
finalist Dave Allen of Iowa State.
Overall, the Wolverines finished
among the top twenty competitors. The
Iowa Hawkeyes won the overall title for
the third year in a row with 110.75 poin-
ts. Oklahoma State came in second with
87 points while Iowa State captured the
third position with 81.75. Oklahoma
pinned down fourth place with a total of
Fraser wasn't the only Michigan
grappler in Oregon. Sophomore Eric
Klasson, who won the Big Ten
heavyweight title, had a 1-1 record
during the meet, losing to the second
seeded heavy weight in the tournament,
Harold Smith of Kentucky, 6-4.
Sophomore Larry Haughn had a 2-2
record in the 126 weight group and tur-
ned in a very respectable performance
by placing in the top 12 overall. Another
sophomore John Beljan wrestled in the
150 weight category and finished 0-1.
With the season over, head coach
Dale Bahr will be able to reflect on this
past year and look forward to next'
"I'm very satisfied with the way we
performed this season," said Bahr.
"We ended up the year at 11-6-1 and
when you play with a team that is
mainly made up of freshmen and
sophomores, a record like that is very
"This year, we consistently beat
teams that were ranked 11th, 15th and
so on. But we couldn't defeat the top ten
teams. When we lost to Minnesota,
Iowa and Iowa State, each one of those
teams were ranked in the top five. This
occurred because of our immaturity."
Bahr excitedly expressed his op-
timism about future Michigan
"I can't help being enthused about
the future. When these guys are juniors
and seniors, we will be a force to be
reckoned with. 'Next year, I seriously
feel that we will be able to compete with
the top ten teams in the country."
Bahr can now set his sights on the all-
important task of recruiting and accor-
ding to him, Michigan is looking at
some highly sought after high school
seniors throughout the country;
although he was not at liberty to say
who the prospects were.
"I will say that we're looking at a
couple of guys in Pennsylvania and alsor
a couple in Iowa.
"One of the hopefuls comes from the
same high school where I had coached,
Algona (IowaI High School. Hopefully,
we can land two or three excellent
freshmen and blend them with the
remainder of the team and things
should be looking good."

A series of telephone calls to persons
offering tickets for sale in Sunday's In-
dianapolis Star and of others attem-
pting to purchase produced reports that
some people are asking as much as $800
a ticket for a seat at Saturday's
semifinals at Market Square Arena and
next Monday's championship game.
The asking price apparently climbed
when nearby Purdue and Louisville
captured regional championships to
reach the Final Four, according to the
persons responding to the phone calls.
"I'm trying to earn money for sum-
mer school," said an Indiana Univer-
sity senior who was having individuals
responding to his ad give them an offer
for two tickets to each session.
"My best offer has been $325 a pair,"
he said. "But, the calls are just star-
ting. I didn't answer the phone until af-
ter Louisville had won its game."
The tactic apparently is a common
one. Several of the ads indicated tickets
were available to the person making
the best offer.
Another "businessman" said his
asking price was $225 a ticket per
session. "You've got to get what the
traffic will bear," he said, adding that
he was willing to take the caller's name
and telephone number in case the price

"The tickets are high," said Ander-
son. "One person wanted $400 a ticket.
But, maybe they'll drop. I attended the
NCAA Finals in Atlanta and Salt Lake
City, and I'm optimistic our group of
five will be able to get tickets."
Apparently there are some who
aren't trying to squeeze all they can out
of their customers.'
"My husband sold our tickets,"
responded a woman. "We got $300 for
them." The woman's husband has of-
fered a block of four tickets, which had.
a face value of $240 since all seats were
sold at $30 per session. The woman said
