period. It was the charity tosses the
Wolverines received that continually
kept thent out in front, since they
only managed to score one more field
go l than the visitors. Michigan
conected on 11 out of 15 shots from
the free throw line, while Iowa made
four out of nine attempts.
For the greater part of the fray
Michigan displayed some spotty pass-
ing, and its breaking game was far
from par on numerous occasions.
However, part of this may be at-
tributed to Iowa's close checking de-
fense, which turned the contest into

fiak received a great ovation from
the capacity crowd that saw the
battle, as he left the floor, for his
fiery playing.
But, once again the all-around star
of the night was Captain Rae as he
sparkled on defense and continued1
to get his share of the points despite
the fact that he was closely guarded.-
Not only did he bottle up Evans, whol
opposed him at the pivot post, but
often he would drop his man to stop
another Hawkeye. Three times ink

Harmon's Presence Proves Tonic
Michigan's defensive work was
really the bright spot of the game,
but it was not until Harmon came
in did Michigan begin to check
Iowa. He also added a great dealr
of speed to the attack, but old "98"
didn't quite display the offensive
ability that made him the leading
scorer last year..
Oosterbaan's boys had to scrap al]
the way as Iowa had the fastest team
Michigan fans have seen at the Field1
House this season. Its passing was
swift and accurate, but too often
they missed perfect scoring set ups.
At least four times in the second
half Iowa players missed shots frcin
open positions around the hoop.
In the long run it was Michigan's
smart and wide awake playing which
provided its margin of victory, whilen
the Hawkeyes made several costlyA
mistakes. Once in the closing stagesn
of the game, Harmon made threeb

Ross Paces Wolverine
Offensive As Goldsmith
Nets Two Markers
Eddie Lowrey's fighting Wolverine
hockey squad finally hit its stride
last night and completely sbdued,a
game but outplayed Illinois outfit,
The game was featured by the
great defensive play of Charley Ross
and Larry 'Calvert, who held Illinois
to a minimum of scoring chances.
Ross also sparked the offensive drive
3f the Wolverines, getting one goal
himself and assisting sophomore
genter Paul Goldsmith on two other
Goldsmith Opens Scoring
The first few minutes of the con-
test were uneventful with neither
team getting any real scoring
;hances. Paul Goldsmith broke the
:eadlock after eight and a half min-
.ites when he took a pass from Char-
ley Ross .just inside the llini blue
tine and fired it through .a maze of
llinois players past goalie Jack Gil-
Later in the frame, Joe Lotzer,
diminutive center for the visitors
broke into the clear in front of the
Vichigan net but Larry Calvert came
ip from the side to deflect his shot
to one side.
Burt Stodden, Wolverine wingman,
tallied the second Wolverine mark-
er when he outskated the Illinois de-
fense to drive the disk into the net
n 12:34 of the second period, after
7apt. Eldon "Spike" James of Mich-.
gan had prevented the Illini from
coring by a series of sensational
Lotzer Nets For Illini
The lone Illinois goal came when
Joe Lotzer took a pass from Capt.
Johnny White after a jam in front

n 17:48 of the same stanza.
Less than a minute later, Charley
Ross picked up the puck behind his
goal, skated down the right side of
the ice and scored from 20 feet out.
After seven minutes of the third
period had passed, Larry Calvert was,
waved off the ice by referee Roy Rey-
nolds for holding Joe Lotzer as he
broke into the clear in front of the
Michigan goal. Coach Vic Heyliger
then sent five men up the ice for
the Indians but due to the fine de-
fensive work of Bert Stodden and
Charley Ross and some great goal-
tending by "Spike" James, the Mich-
igan goal-line remained uncrossed.
Calvert Gets Thumb
Two minutes later, Calvert was
again thumbed from the ice, this
time for tripping, but once more the
visitors' power play availed them

verines' fifth and his own second goal

a pass from Charley Ross, skated
straight in on Gillan, pulled him to

Bert Stodden suffered the only
serious injury of the evening when
he collided with Larry Calvert late

I Mt ma/nor - -

WVe dropped in at the Field House
yesterday afternoon to see the wrest-:
lers. The wrestlers were fine. Every-
body, except some of the wrestlers,
has a good time. The wrestlers
push and they pull, they hold and they
bull. But it is all in the spirit of fun.
But there comes a time when
Michigan and the spectators think
that some of the Illini have the wrong
idea about the game. We had been
brought up to believe that grappling
was like an old Palmer method writ-
ing drill-push and pull. Maybe out
in the Sucker state they have a dif-
ferent drill. They believe in the old
axiom that he who runs away will
live to run another day.
Here was the situation. After
the 145-pound match, the Wol-
verines were down 16-0.. This was
not so nice from the Wolverine
standpoint although it must be
admitted that the invaders are
smiling and laughing as though
someone has just told a little
Audrey joke. Because in the four
remaining matches, Michigan has
to win all and gain pins in two
of them just to tie. Things look
dark. Bookmakers in the stands
phone their home office for in-
structions. The instructions come
back-plunge heavily on Illinois at
Now Harland Daner does his
part. Not only does he thrust his'
worthy opponent to the mat with the
latter's shoulders where the soles of'
his feet would be were he walking,
but he accomplishes this feat in a
highly spectacular manner. He keeps
the crowd amused with his antics.
This lad shows histrionic ability, we
think. College wrestling could use
a little more of his ilk.
But things go on apace and Jim
Galles is next on the program. Now
Jim also tries to do his part. He
has his opponent in an extremely
precarious state. So precarious in
fact that referee Pat Righter (the
crowd think this a misnomer) be-
lieve that the Illini (Jesse Boyd by
name) is in danger of physical in-
jury. It seems that his wrist is bent:
back across his esophogus and his
sceptum jammed against his wrist.
In short, he can't breathe. Now ob-
viously any socially-conscious referee
can't allow this to continue. So he1
halts the bout to allow Mr. Boyd
to recover and then sets the lads up

in the referee's position. Considerate
of Mr. Righter but this humane ges-
ture passes unappreciated by the Wol-
Comes upon the scene a certain
Don Nichols. A conscientious
lad, he appears to be on the verge
on pinning Paul Govedare. The
referee has his hand up in the
air so much that three teachers
who are in the audiene say that
he can leave the room. But time
runs out before his hand comes
down so that leaves captain For-
rest Jordon, lovingly called
"Butch," to carry on.. He is to
grapple with Frank Battaglia, a
rather large lad with bulging
thighs and posterior and must
pin to salvage a tie.
It is this same Battaglia who
arouses the antipathy of the as-
sembled gathering. He thinks this is
a track meet. And even then he has
the wrong idea because he runs
backwards. He complains to the
referee about Jordon being down
on one knee and he is eminently in-
correct in doing this because it is
perfectly legal to wrestle on one's
head as long as one is not stalling.
Same of which this Battaglia insists
on doing. It appears to many in the
stands that this Battaglia should
be shown to the nearest exit. If it
were a boxing match, the referee
would call it no contest. In fact
the referee admits later that it is
the closest he has ever come to dis-
qualifying a man. Many think that
this wasn't close enough. So in the
end Jordon wins a decision and Il-
linois wins the meet, 16-14.
But this does wrestling in these
parts little good. If we want
to see a track meet, Ken Doher-
ty's lads will be glad to oblige.
The meet was a good one, mar-
red only by this joker Battaglia
who wanted to take no chances
with our Butcher. Too much
time was spent on the mat and
not enough on action. Danner
suited the crowd and more like
Danner would bring larger
crowds. It might not be tech-
nically correct but Coach Cliff
Keen and his boys might make
a little concession to the vulgar
tastes of the masses.
It happened at the hockey game
last night. Coach Eddie Lowrey was
substituting John Corson late in the
game and he says to him "send Lo-
vett out."
Lovett, who is sitting on the bench
beside him informs him of that fact
and Lowrey, without blinking an eye
replies, "what are you doing here?
Get in there at wing."
Something else to wonder about:
-How did Michigan free stylers lose
all those second places against Ohio
State yesterday?

Strong Finish
Fails To Brin
Wrestlers Win
Nichols Narrowly Misses
Fall As Squad Suffers
First Loss Since '37
Michigan went down fighting yes-
terday afternoon in a colorful wrest-
ling meet with the University of Illi-
nois grapplers as the Wolverines'
strong closing bid was nipped, 16 to
14. The matmen swept the last four
matches but the Illini had mounted
up a score in the first four which
included two falls. It was Michigan's
first dual meet loss in sixteen straight,
breaking a two year string.
The crowd was treated to a lively
exhibition, particularly in the 165,
175, and heavyweight matches which
Jim Galles, Don Nichols, and Capt.
Forrest "Butch" Jordan swept for
Michigan. Things looked black or
orange and blue, for awhile as the
Illini won the first four encounters
but the Wolverines closed strong, fall-
ing just short of the mark.s
Nichols Thrills Crowd
The most exciting matches, which
had the crowd on its feet roaring,
were between Don Nichols and Paul
Govedare, of Illinois, and "Butch",
Jordan and Frank Battaglia, of the
Illini. In the 175 pound fracas Don
Nichols won handily over Govedare.
18 to 5, but had some trouble in
keeping his man on the mat as the
latter sought to escape. Nichols
carried the fight during the early
moments of the encounter and finally
caught up with his opponent and tied
him up with a chicken wing, as the
wrestling phraseology puts it. Don
carried 12 points with go-behinds and
slapped on a stretch of scissors and
reverse nelson in the last few min-
utes which brought the spectators to
their feet. For almost 30 seconds Don
had Govedare's shoulders but a frac-
tion of an inch off the mat but the

Illinois grappler held out until the
final horn. This near fall was prob-
ably the closest thing to a pinning
that has been seen for a long time.
The heavyweight match found burly
Frank Battaglia back-pedaling from
just as burly "Butch" Jordan. The
low score, 5 to 3, which Jordan won
by was accountable to the fact that
there was very little actual wrestling.
Battaglia apparently didn't like
"Butch's" aggressiveness or his
crouching stance because he just
wouldn't "mix it," much to the crowd's
dislike. There was also a time out
for the Illinois grappler when his face
was cut. This match was almost com-.
parable to a professional farce, much
to Jordan's dismay, for he did his
best .to tie up Battaglia only to have
the latter roll off the mat.
Galles Impresses
Jim Galles won the 165 match in
impressive style by 13 to 1. He car-.
ried the fight to Jesse Boyd and tied
up the Illinois man with a punishing
head scissors. The encounter was
stopped for three minutes when
Boyd's wind was cut off. Galles dom-
inated the entire match and piled up
his points on time, go-behinds, and
a near fall.
Michigan's only fall was gained by
Harlan Danner in the 155 division.
Danner defeated Ted Seabrooke in
a fast mach by pinning him at 4:06
with a reverse nelson and a bar arm.
In the 145 pound match Johnny
Paup went down before Capt. Jim
Emmons of the Illini 14 to 2. Em-,
mons used a stretch scissors to good'
advantage until Paup made a whirl-
wind finish, which came, however,
just a little too late.
Weidig Bows At 121
Illinois started out its string of four
wins when Kimbrell Hill defeated '

Tom Weidig of the Wolverines,.10 to
4. Hill, a third place man in the
Big Ten Meet last year, won most of
his points with a figure 4 hook scis-
sors. The 128 pound encounter went
to Paul Petry when he pinned Joe
Robinson of Michigan at 2:18. The
fall -was gained with a front nelson
and leg scissors. Illinois' second fall
goes to the credit of Jean Lutz. He
pinned John Raschbacher at 2:10
with a front scissors and reverse nel-

Weitig, Miehigan, 10 to 4.
