Ten victories, while Thacker, also un-
defeated for two years, will seek to
keep his record unblemished.
Another close battle is predicted
when, Solomon, Wolverine 125 pound-
er, meets Soga or Hesmer of the
Sucker team. The Michigan star suf-
fered his only defeat at the hands of
Snyder, Ohio captain last season who
held the Conference title, while Soga,
a Jap, 'defeated the Buckeye. Hesmer
worked in the Iowa meet last week
and showed real ability in defeating
Weir, Conference 115 pound title
holder last year.
Watson, Michigan's high point win-
ner for the year, is slightly favored
over Minot of the Illini in the light-
weight bout. The Wolverine has scor-
ed 29 points in seven bouts this year
by winning four falls and three de-
cisions. Minot has been steadily im-
proving in recent meets and is con-
sidered one of the leading 135 pound-
ers in the Big Ten.
Michigan should captuire the 145
pound bout as Gunlock, regular
Sucker welterweight, has been off
form in recent bouts. The Illini 145
pounder has difficulty in making
weight as he normally weighs 165
pounds. In case Coach Prehn decides
not to use him, Vondenbosch, Green,
or Furness, will be sent against Sauer,
Michigan ace who has won all of his
Conference bouts this year.
The 158 pound bout promises to
i be another feature affair with Captain
