Eaddy, who meshed 55 points in
the Wolverines' first three engage-
ments, added only three counters
to his total in the fllinois battle,
but still ranks as his team's lead-

hind him with 55 markers.
The Wolverines will move to
Lafayette Monday night to take
on Purdue in another confer-
ence tilt. The Boilermakers,
however, shouldn't give Michi-
gan as much trouble as the
Hoosiers are expected to dish
out, as they are picked to again
fill the Big Ten basement spot
they occupied last season.
After the Purdue game Perigo's

when they meet Butler here. On
Jan. 3 Michigan will face Indiana
again, this time in Ann Arbor.

"Balance, co-ordination, andI
mastery of the holds used are the
most important qualifications of
a good wrestler," points out Wol-N
yerine wrestling Coach Cliff Keen.1
Coach Keen, who has beenc
Michigan's wrestling mentor since;
1925, is one of the most successfult
coaches in Michigan history. Dur-1
ing his 28 years of coaching his1
teams have won well over 80% of1
all their matches.

UNDER KEEN'S tutelage the
Wolverine matmen have finished
no lower than 3rd in the Big Ten
Conference in 24 out of 28 sea-
sons. Last year they placed sec-
ond only to Illinois in the Con-
ference finals.
Keen has produced more than
his share of National Champions,
eleven, in all.
Ed Don George, who later
became World's Professional
Heavyweight Champion, learned
his wrestling here at Michigan
under Keen, while in 1928 Keen
had four of his Michigan wrest-
lers representing the United
States in the Olympics.
Keen himself was an outstand-
ing wrestler in his college days
at Oklahoma A & M. In fact,
he won the 158 pound National
Wrestling Championship. Even
now Coach Keen keeps himself in
good condition and spends much
time demonstrating the proper

how it was done. To find out he

high schools and colleges.

A foretaste of the good times
ahead for the Michigan track team
was given last night as freshmen
and sophomores put on a sur-
prisingly strong showing before
losing to the juniors and seniors
The only senior to win an event
was Van Bruner, who true to form
triumphed in both the high and
low hurdles.-
OUTSTANDING performance of
the meet was turned in by diminu-
tive freshman high jumper Mark
Booth. Booth easily topped the
old time trial and freshman rec-
ords as he sailed over the bar at
6 feet, 51/2 inches.'
Senior Bob Evens also per-
formed in an encouraging man-
ner, leaping to the height of
6 feet 4 inches, the highest he
has ever done.
Sophomores Ross Coates and
John Vallortigara, who ran one-
two in the sixty, indicate that the
Wolverines may be stronger than
usual in their perennial weakness,
the sprints. Coates' time in win-
ning was :06.4.

THE ONLY other victor for the
underclassmen was Geoff Dooley,
who triumphed in the half mile
with classmate John Moule close.
on his heels. Dooley was clocked
in under two minutes.

Junior John Ross showed that
he is still running in form that
captured both indoor and out-
door conference mile titles as
he led teammates Bill Hickman
and George Lynch to the tape.
Ross' time was a swift 4:18.6.
In the two mile run junior Bob
Hall came from behind on the
last lap to beat his pace setting
classmate Buzz Guise to add to
the upperclassmen's total.
BRUNER was the meet's only
double winner, with an :08.3 clock-
ing in the highs and a :07.5 time
in the lows. In both events he
was followed over the finish line
by sophomore transfer student
Tom Hendricks.

Scruggs, Dan Hickman, Bill
Barton, and Jack Carroll raced
to victory over both freshmen
and upperclass units in the mile

Ray Robinson Leaves Boxing;

As New York stripped Robinson

formal retirement through Greene
in a mimeographed release.

Sugar Ray, one of boxing's all

feats in a brilliant career of 137
pro fights, said in an interview:
"At this stage of my career I
don't feel I can give my follow-

to let them down.
"A lot of very big people, and
I mean very big people, in box-

Holiday Cage 'ilts Hold Key to Big Ten Title

With only three Big Ten games
played thus far this year, the
Christmas holidays should hold
the key to who the next Confer-
ence hardwood champion will be.

The indication is already that
the Illinois cagers are shaping up
as the team to beat. In its only
Big Ten game Illinois had com-
plete mastery in handling Michi-
gan a 96-66 drubbing. Loyola
failed to bother the Illini in their
single non-conference contest.
WISCONSIN, holding a 1-0
conference record by virtue of a
75-70 tilt over Iowa, will be in
close contention for the winner's
laurels. Marquette fell victim to
the Badgers, 76-55 in the season's
Laboring under the burden of
losses to Illinois and Iowa, the
Wloverines would have a long
way to climb to get back to the
top of the Big Ten heap.
The Hawkeye quintet has split
1-1 in Iowa's two conference
games. Although Iowa doesn't
possess a team equipped to take
the championship, they appear
good enough to finish in the top
portion of the listings.

idays include the Ohio State-Illi-
