Michigan Matmen Stack Up Against
Uheaten Hoosiers
Michigan's wrestling team left last
night for Bloomington, Ind., where it
will be pitted against the strong
Hoosier wrestling squad tonight.'
Indiana has one of the most power-
ful mat teams in the Conference and
are headed full speed for the Confer-
ence title. The Hoosiers have a well
balanced squad with plenty of capa-
ble substitutes and this fact, coupled
with the excellent coaching and na-
tural aptitude of the men has made
them one of the most feared grap-
pling outfits in the West.
To date Indiana has won all its
matches and :numbers among its vic-1
tims, M. A. C., Ohio, Chicago, North-I
western, and Purdue. ConsjjderingE
that Michigan was put to the mat by
Purdue, Ohio, and Chicago, it does
not appear likely that the Wolverine
delegation will return with a victory.1
Coach Barker, although not expectant
of pulling through on the winner's
end of the score, knows that his charg-
es will put up a good fight and will
give everything that they are capable
of in their respective bouts.
Barker has .been unfortunate this
year in' the dearth of material that he
has been forced to cope with. In most'
of the meets this season he has had
to enter middle-weights in the heavier!
divisions and very often his men have
been thrown through sheer force of
weight. The recent withdrawal of
Karbel, the best lightweight on the
squad, necessitated a shift of men that,
wreaked havoc with the subsequent
Because of the loss of Karbel from
the 125 pound class, Doty, a natural
115 pound wrestler has been changed
to the 125 section and Defoe, an i#ex-
perienced substitute was assigned to


the 115 pound match. This constant

shifting of men has been a serious de-
triment to the team and Barker hopes
that next year more men will becomes
interested enough in his specialty to
repoirt for the team,
In tonight's meet Defoe will be
matched in the 115. nbund class with i
Doty representing Michigan in the 125
pound class. Doty in the first meet
of the season had the honor of win-
ning Michigan's first wrestling match
by pinning to the mat his opponent,
a Purdue man,in' 45 secods. His ad-
'vent into the heavier division will
han icap' him to some extent and a
victory in the Hoosier meet is not
"Red" Gillard, a scrappy 135 pound-
er, will compete in his favorite event
and is looked upon to put up the fast
offense that he usually does. Rose,
who has won more matches than any
man on the squad, is entered in the
145 pound class, and is looked upon
to come through with flying colors.
Herrnstein will enter his first wrestl-
ing competition carrying the Wolver-
ine colors in the 158 'pound class.
Mead is a probable. entry in the 175j
division with Marion or Palmer as the
prcbable heavyweights.
