Wolverine Matmen Battle
Ohio State at Columbus
_ By HERB COHEN
With two regulars out of the
lineup due to illness, the Michi-
gan wrestling team journeys to
Columbus today to face a strong
Ohio State squad in the last dual
meet of the'season.
Both Larry Nelson, Conference
champion at 123 pounds, and 137
pounder Jack Gallon will be forced
to miss the trip due to sickness.
NEVERTHELESS, the Wolver-
ine lineup should not be too weak-
ened for Coach Cliff Keen has
able substitutes in Joe Atkins at
123 pounds and Andy Kaul at 137
The meet is the final test of
the season for the Wolverines
who up to now have won five,
lost two and-tied one. The Buck-
eyes although they have been
having their troubles this sea-
son, and have not quite the won-
lost percentage of Michigan,
still will provide some sturdy
opposition for Cliff Keen's
Last year when the two teams
collided, sparks really let loose in
probably one of the most exciting
matches to be held in Yost Field
House. The final score was 12-12,
and both teams went away hap-
py, still carrying the undefeated
records with which they went into
The Buckeyes are headed by
five returnees from last year's
team: Fred McLean at 167 pounds,
and Ronald Lax, Buckeye 147
pounder, both finished second in
the Big Ten last year. One seven-

That was al for the Spartans.

Michigan Gymnasts Vie
Ywith Unbeaten Spartans
By DAN FOGEL
The Michigan gymnastics team will try to assume the giant-
killer role tonight, when they meet a highly favored Michigan State
squad in Yost Field House at 9 p.m.
The flying rings and high bar events will be held in the Intra-
mural Sports building at 7:00 with the rest of the competition resum-
ing at 9:00, following the Ohio State track meet.
PRE-SEASON favorites for the N.C.A.A. team championship, the
Spartans possess an unblemished competitive record so far this sea-
son. Included among State's victories is a 53-43 defeat of Illinois,
defending Conference champs, who earlier this season leveled Michi-
gan by the score of 62%-321/.
Pacing the MSC attack will be Olympic hopefuls Bob Fel-
deimer and Carl Rintz. Captain Feldeimer, one of the top gym-
nasts in collegiate ranks, placed third in the all-round conference
competition and ninth in the National AAU championships last

il rowe AA A
By ED SMITH
With an eye on next week's
Big Ten Championship at Cham-
paign, the Wolverine thinclads
will take on the Buckeyes of Ohio
State at Yost Fieldhouse tonight.
No longer the power that they
once were, the Buckeyes have been
weakened for the indoor season
by the loss of middle distance
runner Len Truex.
TRAVELING with the Buckeye
squad is Otis Chandler, American
Olympic prospect in the shot put.
Chandler, late of Stanford, is cur-
rently stationed at an Air Force
base near Columbus, and will take
part in an, exhibition contest with
Roland Nilsson, Michigan's gigan-
tic Swede. Chandler is capable of
hurling the shot over 57 feet.
Though Chandler's heaves
will not count in meet competi-
tion, the Buckeyes have another
fine shot putter in the person
of Joe Morgan. Morgan, a rarity
among shot putters, throws the
shot left handed. Two weeks
ago at the Michigan State relays
he finished second, close behind
Tonight will be Captain Don
McEwen's farewell appearance in
Yost Fieldhouse, and he will close
out his indoor career as a Wol-
verine at Champaign next week.
This evening McEwen will run in
onlyhis specialty, the two mile.
MOST LIKELY the closest
race will be the 440. Here Ohio
State's Gene Cole will be pitted
against Michigan's Jack Carroll
and Bill Konrad. Cole's outstand-
ing performance was a 48 flat
quarter which he turned in while
still in high school.
The Buckeyes have fine per-
formers in two other events. In
the high jump Peron Dubard, a
freshman, will match his height
with the Wolverines' Beb$Evans
and Howard Liverance. In the
Milwaukee Journal Meet Du-
board cleared the bar at 6 feet
6 inches, a height that neither
Wolverine has yet approached. -
Another good Ohio State bet
is the pole vault. State's Jerry
Welbaurn has cleared better than
fourteen feet, while thirteen feet
is the ceiling of the Maize and
