Victories in Key Events

Dominance in the five lighter
weights gave Michigan's unde-
feated wrestlers a 17-8 victory
over a powerful Michigan State
aggregation before the largest
crowd of the season at Yost Field
House last night.
Lightweights were victorious in
five classes to give Michigan its
ninth consecutive wrestling tri-
umph of the season. The matmen
close the campaign against Ohio
State next week, preceding the
Conference championships on
March 2-3.

LARRY NELSON opened the
evening for the Maize and Blue
grapplers trouncing Bill Bucking-
ham of the Spartans, 6-0. Nel-
son dominated the match from
start to finish and won his second
consecutive shutout match in two
Jack Gallon, Michigan's
sophomore sensation won his
eighth victory of an undefeated
season when he bested Martin
Sherman of MSC, 11-4 at 130
pounds. Gallon racked up five
points in the last period to sew
up the victory.
At 137 pounds, Joe Scandura
won the third straight bout of the
evening for Michigan as he scored
a crucial takedown for two points
in the final three minutes, to eke
out a 5-4 triumph over Joe Di-
Bello. Scandura was penalized
two points in the second period
for an illegal slam.
* * *
DAVE SPACE continued his
winning ways at 147 pounds as he
bested Lee Smith, 6-1. Space
scored heavily in the final two
periods to easily win. He domin-
ated the match throughout and
picked up two riding time points.
An escape in the final period
plus a riding time point gave
Michigan Captain Bill Stapp a
4-2 win over the Spartans' Orris

Planck, Gibbons winning with
three points in final period, 3-0.
In the heavyweight bout, Art
Dunne drew with Frank Kapral,
2-2, in a close, hard fought match.
The proceedings were enlivened
by the appearance of several fa-
mous Wolverine mat greats of the
past who gathered to do honor to
the 1951 edition of the Michigan
wrestling team. The once-famed
grapplers sat in a special section
and were introduced before the
meet by Jim Smith, last year's
Michigan Captain. Included in
the gathering was Jim Kelly, na-
tional and conference champ in

a blazing six-under-par 65 yester-

$10,000 Rio Grande Valley Open
with a 54-hole score of 200.

Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.-Michigan's
track squad put on one of its best
all around performances in recent
years by rising to topple favored
Illinois, 6012 to 53%/2, before an
overflow crowd of over 6000 fans
here yesterday afternoon in one of
the most publicized dual meets in
recent Big Ten history.
Although both Don McEwen and
Captain Don Hoover scored double
wins for the Wolverines, it was
sterling performances by relatively
unknown trackmen Tom Johnson
and Lowell Perry that did the trick
for Michigan.
much better known for their ter-
rific football ability than for track
skill came through with unexpect-
ed wins that found them topping
their previous best efforts by a
wide margin.
Johnson won the shot put with
a heave of 50'2" and also had a
put of 49'8' for his second best
effort, both of these being three
feet over his best try until this
meet. Perry leaped 6'21/" to win
the high jump.
Chuck Whiteaker also came
through in fine fashion by winning
the half-mile race in the good
time of 1:56.8. Coach Don Canham
called Whiteaker's win "the turn-
ing point of the meet, since Illi-
nois put their maximum effort into
trying to win this race and sweep
all three places."

valiantly all the way in what Can-
ham termed "a very rough, shoving
race that Chuck ran beautifully
from beginning to end."
McEwen, as expected, won
both the mile and two mile races.
He copped the mile in 4:16.3 tak-
ing it easy all the way as he was
never pushed. The Canadian Ace
came back later to set a new

dual meet record of 9:11.3 in the
two mile.
Hoover ran two fine hurdles
races, tying a meet record in win-
ning the highs in :08.7, and win-
ning the lows in the good time of

when Illinois Don Laz, top college
pole vaulter in competition today,
soared to 14'8%". Laz was the
other double winner as he won the

This win by the Wolverines was
their first since 1944 in indoor
track competition aginst the Illini,

Ruby Goldstein said today he was
"firmly convinced" of the sincerity
of Paddy Young's knockout loss to

Gene Harrison in Madison Square
Garden last night-a surprisingly
short scrap which set tongues
wagging from this town to the
farthest extremity of the televi-
sion cable.
"I'm firmly convinced he was
knocked out," said Goldstein, a
topnotch official.

GOLDSTEIN'S statement put an
official end to the episode.
Ruby stopped the fight at 2:57
of the second round after Young
went down for the fifth time in
the bout and for the third time in
the second frame. New York rules
require the referee to stop a non-
title fight if a boxer is floored
three times in one round.
