in Evanston Saturday, when a weakened Wolverine squad will attempt
to defend its 1944 Big Ten crown against seven Conference opponents.
Michigan, sapped of reserve strength with the loss of freestyler
Charlie Higgins and Jack Zimmerman, will be threatened mainly by the
Buckeyes and Boilermakers, who are well-stocked with reserve talent.
Although boasting more individual

Recent rumors hinting that Munn
