Encounter Visiting Illini


Riding the crest of a four game
winning streak, the Wolverine
wrestlers play host to the Univer-
sity of Illinois matmen in a dual
meet scheduled for Yost Field
House at 8 p.m.
The Michigan squad, unbeaten
in conference meets this season,
will probably face its toughest test
of the Big Ten schedule when they
grapple with the defending con-
ference champions. With the team
at full strength Coach Cliff Keen
is hopeful of avenging last season's
setback in championship meet, in
which Michigan was runner-up to
the Illini for the title.

f MOST NOTABLE of theMichi-
gan State efforts was the stun-
ning 51-39 conquest of mighty Ohio
State. The Buckeyes, forced to
swim without their great stars
Ford Konno and Dick Cleveland,
nevertheless presented a formid-
able outfit which was riding the
crest of a 25 meet victory streak.
The meet is the 30th between
the schools. Michigan holds an
overwhelming advantage with
27 victories to two for the Green,
and White. The Spartans, how-
ever have achieved both of their
triumphs in the last three years.
The accent up at East Lansing
this year has been on all-round
team strength rather than on in-
dividual stars as has been the case
in recent seasons,
THE SPARTANS lack a nation-
al champion performer for the
Scholes, the Olympic great in the
sprints, has been graduated, and
finding an adequate replacement
for him has been a great problem
to Coach McCaffree.
Tom Payette, a sophomore
from Grand Rapids, has shown
promise in the freestyle events,
and may help against the pow-
erful Michigan squad.
Michigan State still has its
great distance freestyler Bert Mc-
Lachlan. The senior from Denver,
Colorado finished second in the
220 and 440-yard and the 1500
meter freestyle races in last year's
Western Conference meet. In each
case he was bested by Ohio State's
Ford Konno.
excellent use of the talents of new-
ly eligible freestyler Ron Gora.
The former Lane Tech High of
Chicago sensation can go in either
the 50, 100 or 220 races and will
free the versatile Bumpy Jones,
who had been swimming in some
of those distances, for backstrok-
ing and the individual medley.
Jones is just about the best in
the world in the individual ef-
fort. Having him fresh for the
backstroke will also be a de-
cided help. He and John Chase

give Matt Mann's crew a potent
punch in the backstroke depart-
Diver Jimmy Walters, who has
come along in great style in this,
his sophomore year, will be up
against the Spartans' able Ken
Coyne. Coyne finished seventh in
the conference last year and is
rated improved over his 1952 ef-
Breaststroker Glen Miller will be
faced with the experienced Bruce
Aldrich, a senior who lettered for
the Spartans last year.

pared to Michigan's six( the Fight-
ing Illini have a record of seven
victories, two defeats, and one tie.
_ Their two defeats were suf-
fered at the hands of Oklahoma,
defending national champion,
and Oklahoma A. & M., gener-
ally recognized as the perennial
leader of collegiate wrestling.
Although the conference cham-
pionship is decided solely on the
basis of a team's standing in the
Big Ten Championship Meet at
the end of the season, this even-
ing's match will be a positive bar-
ometer in measuring the compara-
tive strength of the two squads
that are expected to fight it out
for the conference crown.
ONE OF THE finest matches of
the entire conference campaign is
in prospect when.the Wolverines'
Andy Kaul meets the Illini cap-
tain, Pete Compton at 137 pounds.
Kaul is undefeated in six contests
this season while Compton is the
defending conference titlist and a
wrestler who has never lost a
match in dual competition.
Michigan's other two unbeat-
en matmen, Captain Snip Na-
lon at 130 pounds and Dick
O'Shaughnessy in the heavy-
weight division are also expect-
ed to have a rough time in keep-
ing their perfect records intact.
Captain Nalon's probable op-
ponent at 130 pounds is 34-year-
old Lou Kachiroubas. Kachiroubas
who served several years in the
United States Navy before attend-
ing college has two national AAU
championships to his credit. In
addition to these titles, Kachirou-
bas has also won two Big Ten con-
ference championships and last
year was runner-up.
Illini coach Pat Patterson's
squad is unusually strong in the
lower weights where in addition
to Compton and Kachiroubas,
Patterson has sophomore Dick
Meeks who was runner-up in the
Big Ten 123-pound champion-
ships last year.
To meet this awesome array of
talent Wolverine Coach Keen has
decided to stick to the same men
who have shown progressive im-
provement throughout the cur-
rent campaign and who last week
defeated a powerful aggregation of
Michigan State wrestlers, 17-13.

ed Michigan gymnastic ' squad

COACH NEWT Loken has been
forced to revamp his line-up with,

ling champion, who was also ruled
Michigan's Mary Johnson is
expected to carry the brunt of
his team's hopes. The tentative
line-up shows him entered in
the side horse, high bar, parallel
bars, flying rings, and the tumb-
ling events.
Jim Barbero will team with
Johnson on the side horse and
the parallel bars. He will also join
Frank Adams and Johnson in the
high bar.
* * *
ADAMS IS entered in tumbling
and in the trampoline, with cap-
tain Don Hurst. Jack Eckle will
also assist in the latter event. Dick
Bergman and Al Krauss complete
the roster, both being entered in
the flying rings event.
Illinois, the Big Ten cham-
pions, but defeated this season
by Penn State, still boasts a
team of champions.
Bob Sullivan, second ranking
man in the country in tumbling,
and NCAA champion in the same
event is expected to do most of
the Orange and Blue scoring. He
usually scores half of Illinois'
points in the trampoline, high bar,
parallel bar and rings competition.
FRANK BARE, another cham-
pion, is entered in the high bar,
parallel bars, side horse, and rings.
Gil Brinkmeyer, second . highest
scorer behind Sullivan last year is
entered in the same events.
Jeff Austin, another top scorer,
is entered in the tumbling and
trampoline events.
The loss to Penn State was only
the second in four years for the
Illini. Last season they dropped
one to Michigan State in an up-
set. The Illini defeated Coach Lo-
ken's squad last year, 62V2-33%,
and Michigan will be out to avenge
that loss.

Floundering Michigan takes its
third shot at win number three
in the Big Ten basketball race
tonight, encountering sixth-place
Wisconsin at Madison.
The hapless Wolverines have
dropped five out of their last six
conference decisions; the most re-'
cent setback being a 30-point
trouncing at the hands of defend-
ing champion Illinois.
Foster will field a vastly-improved
starting combination from the
unit that split even in two clashes
with Michigan last season. His vet-
eran-studded cagers are favored to
annex their sixth win in an even
dozen league starts.
Setting the pace in the well-
balanced Wisconsin offense is
Dick Cable, 6-1 forward who
ranks 13th in the Western Con-
ference scoring battle.
Cable's 20 tallies paced an up-
set, 76-74 verdict over Minnesota a
few weeks ago. Earlier, the crew-
cut junior banked in 15 and 18 in
triumphs over Iowa and Ohio
RIGHT BEHIND Cable in the
point-getting columii is Paul Mor-
row, 6-7 pivot operator. Bespect-
acled Morrow has been averaging
13 points in loop tussles and is
rated as-an excellent board man.
Morrow hit for 15 points at
Ann Arbor last year as the Wol-

verines came from behind in the
final period to eke out a spine-
tingling 56-55 victory.
Cavorting at the other Badger
forward post is 6-2 Tony Stracka,
a performer who was strictly util-
ity last season but has suddenly
blossomed out into a potent scoring
threat. Stracka's 11.4 average per
game marks him as one of Wis-
consin's big three.

FOSTER HAS molded a back-
court threesome that rotates in
and out of the ball game. This trio
is composed of veterans Chuck Sie-,
fert and Tom Ward, and junior
Ron Weisner, all sharp shots from
outside the foul circle.

Trying to offset a repeat of
last year's lop-sided Badger win
at Madison, first-year coach Bill
Perigo is expected to go with the
same starting quintet that gave
Illinois a fight for eight 'minutes
last Monday night.
Sophomore Paul Groffsky draws
the piyot assignment and defen-
sively will probably play opposite
the high-scoring Cable. Groffsky
currently is the 12th leading scor-
er in the Big Ten and paces the
Wolverines with a 206-point out-
* * *'
LANKY MILT Mead is Perigo's
choice to hold down Morrow. Both
of these competitors stand an even
6-7, with Morrow having a slight
weight advantage.
Once again, spunky Ray Pavi-
chevich lines up as Mead's run-
ning mate in the front court, while
jumping John Codwell and dim-
inutive captain Doug Lawrence
bring up the Michigan rear guard.
Lawrence was the top Maize and
Blue point-maker at Madison a
year ago with 15 markers.

CANHAM INTENDS to sacrifice
points in the individual events so
as to strengthen his relay teams.
The Wolverine quartet -of
Jack Carroll, 'George Lynch,
John Ross, and John Moule will
be out to crack the American
distance medley record of
10:04.5. Ross and Carroll are
both members of the quartet
that set the record at East Lan-
sing last year.
Three of them, Ross, Lynch, and
Moule, will team with Roy Chris-
tiansen in the two mile relay,
while Carroll will come back in
the mile relay with Grant Scruggs,
Bill Barton and Dan Hickman.
* * *

The shuttle hurdle relay will
feature a return match between
the Wolverines andtheSpartans
who finished in a dead heat at
the Michigan AAU meet last
The sprint medley appears to
be another duel between the Wol-
verines and Illinois. Ca'nham will
pin his hopes on Scruggs, Ross,
Coates, John Vallortigara, and
Goeff Dooley.
TWO FORMER Olympians,
Fritz Nilsson of Michigan and Ar-
nold Betton of Drake dominate
the field events.
Last year Nilsson took the shot
with a heave of 53 feet, six inches
and he should not be hard pressed
to repeat his victory.
