any conference meet. Following
close on his heels are Dick Cole-

Only Tom Carroll of Minne-

Ohio State are given much
chance of breaking this block

Indiana looms as the other field

bility of taking two firsts-in the
high jump and shot put.
CLIFF ANDERSON, the Hoosier'

the shot put, having consistently
bettered 50 feet, and with a top

Matmen Finish Season Without Defeat
By BOB CARPENTER
Michigan's varsity mat masters,
finished their regular season last
Saturday with nine wins, no de-
feats, and one tie, which consti-
tuted the Wolverines' first unde-
feated season since 1944.
However, Ohio State proved to
be the fly in the ointment as they
tied the Maize and Blue 12-12 in
the finale for both squads during
the regular season.
WHAT IS even more depressing
is the fact that the Buckeye tie
would have been almost impossible
if Casey Fredericks, their mat
mentor, hadn't 'starved' three of
his stars so they could each wrestle
in a lower weight division.
In doing this, Fredericks eli-
minated his regular 137 pounder,
who had been the weakest link in
the formidable Ohio State mat
lineup, and replaced him with
Ronald Lax, who had sparkled at
147 pounds during the previous
portion of Buckeye salte. This
proved to be a wise move for Lax
outpointed Michigan's Joe Scan-
dura by a decisive 15-4 margin.
Crafty Fredericks then placed
Bryce Keough, who wrestled at 157
all season and placed second in the
Conference last year, against Wol-
verine regular, Dave Space. This
also paid off as Keough staved off
Space's last minute rally and out-
pointed him 7-3.

THIS ENABLED Fred McLean,
who placed second in the Con-
ference Championship at 167 last
year, to grapple with Michigan's
captain, Bill Stapp. This effort was
rewarded too, as McLean squeeked
by Stapp for a thrilling 9-7 victory
that wasn't finally decided until
after the match, When two points
were added to the Buckeye's total
for riding time.
However, Fredericks wizardry

proceeded to throw Kistner all
over the mat, and almost nailed
him in the final few seconds.

gan's Joe Planck virtually re-

tossed Ohio's Jack Milligan

quite glue Milligan's elusive

However, despite the one-sided-
ness of these two matches, the
Wolverines' only held a slight 12-9
edge over the dangerous Buckeyes.
