In the semi-final matches Oberly,
of Michigan decisioned Wayne Brock
of Minnesota 8-3 to go into the finals,
but Dan Nettesheim, Purdue, who
was runner-up in the 136-pound title
last year, scored a fall over Chip
Warrick of the Wolverines. How-
ever, Warrick wrestled in a consola-
ion bout, held to determine third
and fourth places, and he came in
four h.
George Curtis then beat Art Aerne
of Purdue, who has been undefeated
all year, 8-6, being the second Wol-
verine to qualify for the finals. Team-
mate Hugh Wilson, 155-pounder,
then followed suit and scored 4-1 de-
cision over Seymour Wile of Ohio
State to go into the finals against
Joe Wilson, only veteran from Indi-
Jim Galles and Bob Reichert, the
only undefeated men on the Michigan
squad, were both beaten in the semi-
finals. Reichert, 121-pounder, was
decisioned by George Delong from
Illinois and did not place at all, while
Golles lost on a fall when the referee"
ruled that he used an illegal body
slam, injuring his opponent, Roddy'
Lister of Minnesota. This decision
was met with -disapproval of fans and
was considered one of the worst and,
most dastardly decisions made by a
referee. The main contention arose;
out of referee's raising two fingers
and giving Galles two points for a
takedown until he saw the pained
expression on the face of the Minne-
sota grappler. Once a decision has
been made, there can be no change,
Galles came back to win third place
in consolation match, and Johnny
Greene won an 8-0 decision from Joe
Wile of Purdue, being last Michigan'
man to enter finals.

FINALS start tomorrow.
That fact may not make
this week the most import-
ant one of the year, but it
certainly makes it, one of
the more decisive. And
one of the more disagree-
able. Various suggestions
were made, as usual, about
the most efficient means of
preparing for the examina-
tions. Many a coed appear-
ed to hold the belief that
a good movie is most con-
ducive to "that needed re-
laxation." Most language
professors advocated "a
good night's sleep." But
judging from the popular-
ity of the libraries and the
lights seen burning far into
the night, the vast major-
ity of students are appar-
ently sticking to the old
system-last minute cram-
GRADUATION exercises
