not finished within the top four
in the Big Ten, but this year he
has improved very decidedly,
and he could gather some valu-
able points for the Wolverines.
Capt. Bud Holcombe will also be

collegiate grappler. The 167 pound

round at Evanston last year, and
better things are expected this
THE FOURTH senior .in the
regular lineup is Larry Nelson,

favored to win his second consecu-

only lost once in his entire col-

came when he was a sophomore
two years ago.
Jack Gallon at 137 pounds and
