Despite the dark picture created
by the pair of resounding defeats

hands of Iowa and Illinois, there
are still a couple of bright spots

There is some solace to be had
in the fact that this year's edition
of the Wolverine cagers still is
ahead of last season's record. At

place in the Big Ten standings,
the '54 hoopsters are two places
improved over their predecessors.
While the statistical gain of
Bill Perigo's cagers of this sea-

son is more or less in the form
of consolation, the improvement
shown by some of the Wolverine
reserves in the past few games
is tangible evidence of better
things to come.
John Codwell has been playing
the type of ball that made him a
starter on last year's outfit. The
6-3 forward started the season
very slowly, possibly due to stale-
ness that came as a result of too
much hoop activity in the summer

The two sophomores have shown
great improvement in the daily
practice sessions and when Perigo
gave them their chance in a game,
both showed to advantage.
OF THE Maize and Blue start-
ers, only Jim Barron has been;
playing the kind of basketball
they have shown themselves cap-,
able of. Despite scoring only 11
points in the Iowa game due to his
leaving the game on fouls with
19 minutes remaining, Barron has
averaged close to 19 points in Con-
ference play and 17.5 for the
whole season.
The ,6-0 sophomore almost broke
Michigan's single game scoring
record of 28 when he dropped 271
through the hoop in the Washing-
ton tilt. After tallying 20 in the'
initial half, he committed his
fourth personal early in the sec-
ond half and was on the bench1
for a good part of the remainder1
of the contest.

Mat Squad Wins Four of Five
In Between Semester Action

Winner in four out of five
matches between semesters, the
Michigan wrestling team gave de-
finite evidence that it will be a
strong contender to cop the Big
Ten crown for the second suc*I
cessive year.
The Wolverines easily conquer-
ed Northwestern, Hofstra and
Syracuse, were upset by a greatly
improved Purdue squad, and
whipped a. previously undefeated
Pittsburgh team.
Coach Cliff Keen's team now
has a record of six wins and one
loss for the season.

THE PURDUE Boilermakers not
only handed Michigan its first
loss of this year's campaign, but
snapped an 'M' winning streak
which had lasted through 12 suc-
cessive dual meets.



The injury riddled Michigan
squad had little chance against
Purdue-a team which had been
defeated by Michigan in 1953 by
a 26-5 score and had finished
ninth in last year's Big Ten
The deciding match of the con-
test was fought in the heavyweight'
class where Jim Bryant defeated'
Michigan's Bob Hurley, 5-1. Hur-
ley was a last minute replace-
ment for Dick O'Shaughnessy who
was out with a leg injury.

pion for the last two years, was
released from the hospital yes-
terday. It is doubtful, however,
whether he will compete against
Iowa this coming Saturday.
In the first of the vacation
tussles Michigan spoiled North-
western's wrestling debut, as it
easily disposed of the Wildcats
by the score of 25-3. The only
points Northwestern picked up
was when Jack Herschend, who
placed third in the 123 pound
division in the Big Ten cham-
pionships last year, defeated
Frank Hirt, 7-4.
The Wolverines picked up two
five pointers in the meet. "Pepper"
Holt pinned Jerry Remienin 1:48
and O'Shaughnessy won on a for-
THE GRAPPLERS then headed
east where they had little trouble
in disposing of Syracuse and The
Flying Dutchmen of Hofstra Col-
lege, 24-8, 26-6 respectively.
Hofstra, a small clolege in
New York, is coached by "Brick"
Stone who was a varsity track-
man at Michigan for three years.
Two days ago the Wolverines
defeated a rugged Pittsburgh
squad-a team which last year
finished ninth in the national col-
legiate championships, and the
only team which was able to de-
feat last year's Michigan outfit.

of the middle session but they
were finally dented by the Denver
sextet at about the midway point
in the period. Eldon Willock,
Pioneer forward, blasted the puck
behind Wolverine goalie Willard
Ikola after a pass-out from Bill
Kossian who was behind the net.
Doug Mullen quickly matched
the goal for the Wolverines and
ended the scoring for the ses-
sion. At the 14-minute mark of
the period Denver Goaile Bill
Begg, who played brilliantly
during the third stanza, was in-
jured and the teams returned

early intermission.

Youth outshowed the veterans
as the Michigan track team swept
through four between-semester
meets with more than its share
of the laurels.
The Wolverines gave some of
the nation's top cinder stars a
run for their money in a pair

and Washington, completely out-
classed Westen Michigan and
