(Special to The Daily)
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - After
slogging through a dual meet sea-
son with four Conference losses
against two wins, Michigan's im-
proved mat squad last night kept
neck and neck with Indiana and
Ohio State as five Wolverines
placed for this afternoon's semi-
finals.
WOLVERINE AND defending
champion at 136 pounds, Jim
Smith, decisioned Bill Quinlan of
Iowa, 11-4, while Captain Bob
Betzig at 155 pinned his first
opponent, Paul Peterson of Wis-
consin, at 7:50 and went on to
decision Jensen of Minnesota, 8-5.
Last year's champion at 155,
Ken Marlin of Illinois, did not
enter the preliminaries and the
main opposition for Betzig will
probably come from Andy Pri-
zant of Indiana and Bryce
Keough of Ohio State.
Betzig faces Prizant in this af-
ternoon's bout while Smith will
face one of his most formidable
foes, Dave Ewart of Ohio State.
WOLVERINE Jack Powers who
worked down from the 175 to the
165-pound bracket for the meet
decisioned Gil Gaumer of Illinois,
9-3, and he will face Nick Stev-
ens of Northwestern in the semis.
Compact Phil Carlson wres-
tling at 145 for Michigan,
squeezed by Holmes of Minne-
sota in a 5-4 count, and his
next hurdle will be Joe Garcia
of Illinois in one of the toughest
matches of the day.
The Maize and Blue's By Las-
.ky got a bye in the night's wres-
tling but faces one of the tough-
est men in the 175 bracket in
Waldemar Van Cott of Purdue in
the semi-finals.
WOLVERINE Jack Keller at 128
pulled the first defeat of the year
on Spicuzca of Wisconsin in a 7-4
decision, but he had to wrestle
again tonight and he faced Weber
of Ohio State.
The pair battled through a
long match with the score tied
at 4-4. It toak a referee's deci-
sion to give it to Weber and leave
OSU and Michigan each with
five men in the semis.

Michigan's cagers close their
road schedule tonight when they
travel to Iowa City to meet Coach
Lawrence "Pop" Harrison's Hawk-
eye quintet.
Iowa has to win tonight if the
Hawks are to keep from ending up
in a tie for the cellar with North-
western.
IN ELEVEN STARTS Harrison's
boys have won only two games,
but one of them was a 53-49 tri-
umph over an Ohio State quin-
tet which last Saturday handed
Michigan a 69-44 beating, the sec-'
ond highest numher of points'
ever scored against a Maize and
Blue court squad.
The Hawkeyes have also

scored a last-minute 61-60 vic-
tory over Wisconsin and Don
Rehfeldt, and almost scored the
upset of the year when they led
Minnesota for almost a whole
game before the Gophers finally
rallied to edge the Iowans,
54-49.
Chief troublemaker will prob-
ably be forward Charlie Mason.
IE'S DROPPED in 39 field
goals and as many free throws for
a total of 117 points, which is high
for the Iowa quintet, but is just
slightly over the 10 points per
game mark.
The only other Ilawkeye who's
done any scoring worth men-
tioning is guard Tony Guzowski
with 81 points to his credit.
Despite having only two men
who have done any consistent
scoring. Iowa has still managed to
maintain an offensive average of
al"ot 50 points a game, three
more than Michigan's mark.
BUT THE IOWANS have con-
tributed the worst defense in the
Big Nwine.
Opponents have averaged
about 63 points a game against
Harrison's boys, and this makes
the Maize and Blue's mark of
48.5 look pretty good.
To try upsetting the heavily-
favored Wolverines, Harrison will
start Mason and Floyd Magnusson
at forwards, Frank Calsbeek at
center, and Guzowski and Stan
Straatsma at the guards.
For Michigan, coach Ernie Mc-
Coy will begin with Mack Supru-
nowicz and Bill Mikulich at for-
wards, Leo VanderKuy at center,
and Pete Elliott and Bob Harrison
at the guards.

EL PASO, Tex. -VtP) - Steady
improvement was reported late
today in the condition of Ben Ho-
gan.
That was the word from the El
Paso hospital where the golf
champion last night underwent a
two-hour abdominal operation.
The surgery was described as nec-
essary to halt a bood seepage caus-
ing formation of clots which
threatened his life,
"Ben is doing fine,"' said Royal
H ogan, a brother. "le is still a bit
hazy as a result of the operation,
but his pain has cleared up. We
are very well lelased 'vvhh his con-
dition.",
Blood clots troubling the links
stai' were the after-effect of a Fob.

opei'ate came almost at once.

The Huskies stormed back,
and 12 seconds later defense-
man Connie Adams whipped ina
a 50-foot screen shot. The puck
caromed off the post into the
nets past McDonald who evi-
dently did not see it coming.
Owen McArdle and Lenny
Brumm teamed up at 6:18 to give
Michigan a 2-1 edge and what
later proved to be enough to win.
It was a pretty pass play with
Brumm slipping the puck to Mc-
Ardle right in front of the Tech
net.
CAPTAIN AU RENFREVW made
it 3-1 at 10:25 on a pass out from
Gacek from behind the Tech net.
McMillan also was credited with
an assist on the play.
The game was held up for
approximately 15 minutes short-I
ly after the middle of the session
when Goalie Jack McDonald re-
ceived a gash over his left eye{
and had to have medical at-
tention.

Celley's goal was the "picture
play" of the evening. He out-
skated the defense beautifully and
then fired an angle shot from
about 25 feet high into the rigging
past Tech Goalie Jocko Noblet.
HILL GOT HIS second goal of
the night at 2:15 of the final pe-
riod and it ended the scoring
for the contest. Gil Burford was
on the assisting end of the final
marker.
