Purdue Heads Coming 'M'Swim Schedule
Michigan's wrestlers head into
the thickest and the toughest part
of their none too easy grappling
schedule this Saturday when they
tackle their toughest opponent of
the 1950-51 season, so far.
Purdue's Boilermakers will af-
ford the competition for the Wol-
verines when they enter Lafayette,
Indiana this weekend.

#URDUE, who has been the Big
Ten's wrestling champions for the
last three years, will definitely be
very strong, even though they have
lost three of their five Big Ten
Such men as Arnold Plaza, at
123 pounds, Joe Patascil, at 130
pounds, and Waldemar VanCott
at 167 pounds, are no longer pre-
sent to cause undue worry and

frustration for their opponents.
The first two of this fearsome
trio were accorded quite frequent
national mention last year.
However Purdue fans will not
have to worry too much. Capt.
Charles Farina at 137 pounds, and
Jack Moreno, at 147 pounds, head
a group of 19 candidates who are
sure to represent their team ade-
quately. Both these men won Con-
ference Championships last year
in their respective weight divisions,
and Purdue's coach, Claude Reeck,
starts a letterman at every posi-
tion to go with them.
AFTER THIS meet the Wovler-
ine matters will participate in one
of their not-too-frequent triangu-
lar meets. This will take place at
Evanston, Ill., with the participat-
ing schools of Northwestern, Mar-
quette and Michigan gathering
there for the weekend of Feb. 3.
On Monday, Feb. 5, the Michi-
gan grapplers head into Iowa
City where they tackle an al-
ways rough Iowa team.
From here the Wolverines will
come back home to tackle their
first rivals of next semester, Illi-
nois, who will be here Feb. 10.

HEADING THE Illini squad will
be Capt. Dick Picard, who is par-
ticipating in his third year of in-
tercollegiate grappling. He will
wrestle at 130 pounds and will give
Larry Nelson, the Michigan man
at that weight plenty of trouble.
Other Champaign lettermen in-
clude Martin Schwartz at 177
pounds, Paul Riggins and Ray Po-
gozzi at 157 pounds, and Wayne
Gaumer at 167 pounds.

Wait and See
"I'd like to play pro ball but
I'll wait it out and see what they
offer me," said Michigan tail-
back Chuck Ortmann when he
learned he had been selected in
pro football's draft by the Pitts-
burgh Steelers of the National
Professional League's American
THE MICHIGAN senior who
hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
was one of the stars of Michigan's
Rose Bowl victory on New Years
Day when he set the Bowl record
for passesrcompletes with a 15
for 19 average.
His final collegiate year was
also highlighted by his tremen-
dous kicking performance in the
snow bound Ohio State game,
which led Michigan to a victory
in that affair and to the Rose
The Steelers are the only team
in the NFL to use the single wing
and Ortmann could fit into their
attack along with their otherstar
backfield stars, Joe Geri and Lynn
Chandnois, formerly of Michigan
Ortmann is 21 years old and
stands an excellent chance of be-
ing inducted into the Armed Ser-
vices in June.
Read and Use
Chuck Ortmann, Michigan star
was picked in pro football giant
grab-bag yesterday by the Pitts-
The Baltimore Colts-an artis-
tic and financial flop-quot the
National Football Leagu- just be-
fore the loop's annual draft hand-
ed Southern Methodist's great
Kyle Rote to the New York Giants
as top bonus pick.
THE CHICAGO BEARS did per-
haps the most effective mopping
up in the draft a few hours after
owner Abraham Watner of the
Colts failed in a quest for vete-
ran player help from each of the
other clubs and surrendered the
Baltimore franchise. That left the
league with 12 clubs.
The Bears parlayed two draft
claims from previous player
deals into these acquisitions:
Notre Dame quarterback Bob
Williams, who was picked as no.
1 in the regular draft by defunct
Baltimore in behalf of the Bears.
Had the Colts stayed in the league
and been able to retain Williams
-a Baltimore boy, it might have
been a big lift at the gate for the
FLEET HALFBACK Billy Stone
of the Colts was first round choice
of the New York Yanks, who also
owed the Bears a player.
The Colts' 28 active players
were tossed into the hopper of
1950 collegiate seniors up for
the 1951 pro draft.
Big news of the opening session
of the league's four-day annual
session was the folding of the
Colts, who dropped $760,000 in
four years of professional football.

way, the draft went like this be-
