Soph Standouts Bolster Track Team

EAST LANSING-The Univer-
sity of Michigan's football captain,
tackle Al Wahl; was selected on a
Michigan State College all-op-
ponent team otherwise dominated
by Maryland and Notre Dame, the
Michigan's track squad, seeking
the top rung in Big Ten and Na-
tional track prominence, has been
bolstered considerably this year by
the addition of numerous stand-
outs from last year's well-balanc-
ed freshman team.
Prime among these present soph
cindermen is Van Bruner, a top
notch hurdler- whose possibilities
have high boundaries. He is look-
ed upon to give varsity stalwarts
such as Don Hoover, Wally Atchi-
son, and Jim Mitchell a tough fight
for top billing among the Wolver-
* *' *
AND NOT to be outdone in this
phase is Dave THill, a present Mich-
igan footballer who holds prep rec-
ords in both the 120 yard high hur-
dles and 200 yard low hurdles, as
well as the broad jump record for
Mishigan high schools.
The mile relay quarter, which
has been a problem for the last
few years, has brightened up
considerably with such runners
FOR BETTER QUALITY,
as Al Rankin, Bill Graefen, Joe
La Rue coming into the picture.
These three, along with Karl
Newman, now converted to an 880
man, composed last year's fresh-
man mile relay team which broke
the frosh record by posting a 3:25.3
MORE IMPORTANT is the fact
that the old frosh record was held
by present varsity mile record-
holding team. Thus team with Bill
Conrad, a junior sprinter, these
sophs present the hope of clear-
ing up the mile relay problem.
Another weak spot, the high
jump has been raised from prac-
tically nil to a very positive as-
set with the addition of Russ
Tuttle and Lowell Perry to the
squad. Tuttle clears 6' 2" con-
sistently, and Perry, star Wolver-
ine end, comes close to this mark.
Perry also doubles as a broad-

strongest of Michigan's events

Coach Canham's rebuilding pro-
gram has fully come into view with
this influx of a well balanced group
of soph tarckmen, and by all ap-
pearances these underclassmen
will not only give their teammates
a fight for positions, but will also
give Michigan opponents plenty of
trouble in the ensuing indoor track

'M' Wrestlers OccuyNew Quarters

Several new features have been
added to the physical attributes
of Michigan wrestling this year.
The most important new ac-
quisition is the new ivrestling
room, replacing the antiquated
quarters on the balcony of Yost
Field House where Michigan grap-
plers have toiled for over 25 years.
THE NE-W QUARTERS in the
basement of the I-M building are
enhanced' with many features
which make them one of the most
complete grappling rooms in thel
ture noticeably lacking in the old

THE DRESSING ROOMS are
adjacent to the actual matted sur-
face and there is an ante-room
provided for equipment.
However, the room is not the
only major change for the Maize
and Blue wrestlers. This season,
they are shedding the ancient
sweat suit outfits which have
been used for practice for as
long as the oldest living Michi-
gan sports fan cares to remem-
her, in favor of skin-tight blue
trunks with knee guards of the
safety policy inaugurated by
Coach Cliff Keen this season.
These conditions should "ma-
terially improve the early season

Michigan's varsity wrestling
squad will open its season against
Toledo on Dec. 16 at Yost Field
Coach Cliff Keen, who is start-
ing his twenty fifth year as head
Wolverine grappling mentor, ex-
pects the, squad to be in good
shape for its first dual meet.
HOWEVER, he is handicapped
by a lack of depth in the 123, 130,
and 137 pound classes although
first string strength is adequate.
But Keen has hopes that some
eager aspirants will come out and
fill up these vacancies.
With the return of such regu-
lars as captain Bill Stapp, Dave
Space, Joe Planck and Larry
Nelson, the Maize and Blue
prospects look bright.
Captain Stapp had the added
distinction of placing second in
the 155 pound class in last year's
Big Ten Tournament to help
Michigan tie for third place with
