Before the race Zepp had planned
to let Bechtold take the lead at that

captain would have to lead the way

home course at East Lansing. Once
through the swamp Zepp took the
lead and was never headed.

Keen Selects First All-Michigan
Mat Men For Past Ten Years

For the first time in 10 years as1
Varsity wrestling coach here at Mich-
igan, Clifford Keen has picked an
All-Michigan grappling team. Many
of the wrestlers on this squad have
not only won Conference honors, but
also managed to gain inter-collegiate,
National, and Olympic laurels.
The team is as follows:


118-Russell Baker, '25 '26
126-Robert Hewitt, '28 '29
135-Al Watson, '26 '27
145-Russell Sauer, '27 '28
155-Otto Kelley, '30 '31
Carl Dougovito '29 '30
165-Ray Parker '30 '31
175-Al Steinke '30 '31
Heavyweight-Ed Don George.


The 118 pound Wolverine star, Rus-1
sell Baker, captained the team of1
a25-'26, and only lost one match inj
three years.
Bobby Hewitt, 1930 captain, was
prob'ably Michigan's greatest wrestler.1
His sophomore year he won the con-
ference title, the national champion-
ship, and was an Olympic finalist.t
Hewitt also managed to win confer-
ence titles in '29 and '30, and in 1932
he annexed the N.A.A.U. title in. the
126 pound class.l
Al Watson won Big Ten champion-f
ships in '27 and '28. Watson was
only beaten once in three years of
conference competition.
The 145 pound representative, Russ
Sauer, copped the conference title in
1927. The following year he beat

al champ for three years, in the I
Olympic tryouts to win an alternate
berth on the United States team.
1930 was Otto Kelley's banner sea-
son as he won conference, national,
and inter-collegiate titles. He suf-
fered only one defeat during his three
year career.
Carl Dougovite, like Hewitt, was
another versatile wrestler. Dougovi-
to, '32 pilot, was also the 155 pound
grappler on the 1932 Olympic team
in addition to winning the national
and inter-collegiate championships in
this same division. In 1929 he won
the Big Ten title in the 175 pound
class and in 1931 the 165 pound title.
Undefeated in Western Confernce
competition and champion. in 1930,
Ray Parker, wrestling with a broken
leg, finally suffered his first loss in the
1929 national meet at the hands of
Van Bibber of Oklahoma A. & M.

lers, Al Steinke, gained recognition
when he upset the dope and defeated

ever saw."

T'S TRUE that he spills his orange juice, which is a
very bad thing to do-evein if lie is a rubber doll. But
toughness is a virtue when you have to pal around with a
two-fisted fellow like Bobbie (the chap with the curls).
There was a time when a rubber doll just couldn't take
it-but today rubber dolls (and other rubber things from
tires to hot water bottles) are made more sturdy and
stout-hearted by chemicals developed by chemists of the
rubber industry, aided by Du Pont research.

Curiously enough, the very orange juice that Bobbie
himself drinks so nicely, comes from golden fruit the
orange grower protected with Du Pont Plant Spray.
And Bobbie's wash-suit, which is a joy to his mother
because it stays so bright and blue, can thank a Du Pont
fast dye for its color.
At almost any moment in the daily life of the average
person-young or old-modern chemistry is contributing
useful service of one sort or another.
