Danner Regarde
Mainstay Agai
Wrestlers Meet Eastern
Champions From Penn
State Saturday Night

When Coach Cliff Keen's men face
Penn State, Eastern Intercollegiate
wrestling champions, this Saturday
night at Yost Field House, the one
man that the Wolverine fans will
count upon as a sure point winner
will be one Harland Danner.
As a junior this year Danner has
participated in the Indiana and
Michigan State meets at 155 pounds,
and has brought a total of 10 points,
out of a possible 10, to the scores of
the Michigan team.
Last year, because of the greater
experience of Captain Bissell, Coach
Keen placed Harland in the 165
pound class. Wrestling in this weight
the Ann Arbor boy made a name as
the outstanding sophomore member
of the Wolverine wrestling squad.
Won Four In A Row
Although placed into a division
where there is more competition and
experience, this weight class failed to
bother the outlook of the sophomore
star. Starting out on an Eastern
tour Danner showed his skill and
power when he won four consecutive
At Lehigh, which is one of the lead-
ing wrestling schools in the East, the
Wolverine met and pinned Curtis
Ford, a long experienced man of the
home team. Because of the lack of
talent at Franklin-Marshall the
sophomore was placed in the heavy-
weight class and once again pinned
his opponent.,
As time went on the competition in
the f65 pound class became stiffer.
Against Ohio State Danner was faced
with the outstanding man of the
Buckeye team. Forced into an over-
time he came through for Coach
Keen and won on a referee's decision.
In last year's Indiana meet he was
matched with another sophomore
who had the same ranking as Danner
had on the Wolverine squad. As in
the Ohio contest, he was once again
pushed into an overtime with Chaun-
cey McDaniel, of the Hoosiers. How-
ever, continuing his winning march,
he brought home the bacon for the
local team. After the match Mc-
Daniel was carried from the mat in
a state of complete exhaustion.
Only Loss To Illini Star
Until he reached the finals in the
Big Ten meet last year the sailing
had been pretty smooth for the Wol-
verine representatives. It was in the
last contest of this tournament that
the sophomore met his Waterloo.
John Ginay, of Illinois, had watched
all the tricks Danner used in his first
matches and as a result he was able
to stay one step ahead of his oppon-
ent throughout the match, winning
it by a decision.

Harder commented: "It didn't take

was swell. I am very happy."

even though the competition is little
tougher than last season. With a
total of 17 points garnered in eight
games, Gib is only one point ahead
of Center Smack Allen, who has 16
markers to his credit.
Last year Gib copped the point-
getting honors when he set a new top

son almost half over, he will have to
go some to reach the same heights.

entrants is the name of Cedric Sweet.
Entered last year in the novice heavy-
weight division, Sweet, former Var-
sity fullback, had the misfortune of
meeting big Don Siegel in the first
round. After putting up a terrific
battle, Sweet lost the decision to his
husky teammate and was eliminated
from the tourney.
Scored 3 Knockouts Last Year
The consensus of opinion was that
Ced would have gone on to the state
title if Siegel had not been entered
since that latter swept all opposition
before him afer that fight winning
the championship by virtue of three
successive knockout victories.
Sweet has been working out at the
Intramural Building for over a month
to get in shape and last Tuesday took
a close decision over Bob Thalner on
Vern Larson's fight card.
Siegel is still undecided whether or
not he will again enter the boxing
wars. His final decision depends on
whether or not the doctors find his
broken nose, an injury suffered dur-
ing the football season, sufficiently
healed to participate.
Five other fighters who have been
working out under the direction of
Coach Vernon Larson at Waterman
Gym have signified their intention of
competing in the tournament. They
are Mike Rodnick and Virgil Young,
freshman lightweights, Bruce Beyer,l
freshman featherweight, and the RootI
brothers, Tom and Sam. Tom is a
middleweight and Sam a welter-

as an underdog, whipped Miles Un-

He did not accompany the winning
team to Grand Rapids for the state
competition but plans to do so this
time if he is victorious and perhaps
go on to the Tournament of Cham-
pions at Chicago in March.
'Winners Go To Grand Rapids
The winners in both the novice and
open divisions at Ann Arbor will again
be taken to Grand Rapids to meet
winners of similar tournaments held
in Flint, Bay City, Port Huron, Jack-
son, Kalamazoo and Muskegon. From
there the open champions will enter
competition at the Chicago finals
and the novice winners will be taken
along as spectators with expenses
Ann Arbor winners and runners-up
will receive gold and silver gloves
while at Grand Rapids the victorious
will be rewarded with diamond stud-
ded gold and silver gloves.
While the novice division will be
made up of entries from Ann Arbor
and points nearby, the open division
battlers will be obtained from Flint
and Detroit thus assuring the fans of
clever action as well as the slug fests
which the novices usually put on.
Ticket sales so far indicates that
the fights this year will be staged
before capacity crowds.
