1-M SPORTLIGHT
...by alan eisenberg

REVENGE and retaliation take many forms and a new type will
on display this evening, with most of the action taking place
the spacious Sports Building.

be
in

The teaching members at the University will come out from
behind their desks, throw away their chalk and their somber expres-
sions, don gym clothes, and will endeavor to teach the students on
the campus a lesson in various athletic contests. More than 350
faculty members will cavort around the courts and try to demon-
strate to the pupils how it was done "in the old days."
It's all part of the Faculty-Student Night whicli will be on display
for the fourth straight year. Earl Riskey, the man who keeps things
running smoothly in the intramural world, introduced the novel idea
to the campus in 1952 and has been enlarging the program ever since.
This year a new sport-table tennis-has been added and there will
be increased participation in other fields.
"It's up'to the faculty if this program is to continue-and keep
on getting bigger," commented Riskey. "We can always get the stu-
dents together to form teams; they never would throw away a chance
to whip their professors," said the genial man in charge.
If, however, the axiom about history repeating itself is true, the
students are in for a bit of trouble. The instructors have yet to lose
during the three years of competition. In 1952, the faculty came out on
top, 11-9; the next year saw the profs variquish the students, 13-11;
{ and in 1954 the pupils again went down to defeat, this time by a
14-10 score.
The two teams will oppose each other in 13 sports. Volleyball,
with 21 games scheduled, takes up the major portion of the program.
Four of these matches have been played, and the students lead, 3-1.
The Psychology department is the leading contributor with three
teams entered.
Coaches, Athletes To Battle.. .
ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS of the evening will be a basketball
game between two squads dubbed the Flashes and the Toddlers,
which will begin at 8 p.m. on court two. Assistant hoop coach, Dave
Strack is guiding the Flashes and will have as teammates: assistant
coaches Matt Patanelli, Bob Hollway, Don Dufek, and head coach,
Bill Perigo. Some of the men representing the Toddlers are ex-Wolver-
ine cage captain, Doug Lawrence, gridder Lou Baldacci, and John
Codwell, who also played three years for Coach Perigo.
Another battle of coaches and varsity athletes will take place in
tennis. Michigan net coach Bill ,Murphy will lead the Faculty team
and Bob Nederlander, Big Ten champion in 1953, will captain the
student aggregation. Al Mann, Michigan's number one man last
season, will also warm up for the coming campaign. The match, how-
ever, will be played on Sunday.
Other sports that the two groups will compete in are water polo,
bowling, squash, billiards, paddleball, handball, badminton, fencing,
and rifle shooting. Bowling and billiards will be held at the Union this
afternoon.

Coach Feels
Cindermen
Lack Depth
Although Michigan swept
through its third straight dual
meet in a row Tuesday, taking
nine out of twelve events from
Ohio State, track coach Don Can-
ham is still worried about the
coming Western Conference meet
on March 4-5 at East Lansing.
"Even though we have. about
the country's best dual-meet
team," says Canham, "we don't
have the secondary strength need-
ed for the Big Ten meet."
From Tuesday's performance,
Canhaim points to the quarter mile,
the broad-jump, the pole-vault,
and the high hurdles as the team's
weak spots. He figures that there
are six or seven better broad-
jumpers in the Conference right
now, and that the other three

events did not look good enough
against OSU to take many points
against the tougher competition.
Some bright spots in Tuesday's
meet appeared in the unofficial
600 yard and 1,000 yard runs.
Grant Scruggs, who took the 600
in 1:11.9, and Laird Sloan, who
was right on Scruggs' heels, were
especially encouraging to Canham.
He now plans to enter both men
in this event at East Lansing. Pete
Gray also gave a good preview of
future performance .in the 1,000
yard run.
Captain John Moule was in his
usual good form Tuesday as he
stepped off the mile in 4:13.9 with
no one pressing him. Moule is an-
other of Michigan's big hopes in
their bid for the Western Confer-
ence indoor track title and is be-
ing relied upon heavily in the mile
and also in the 880.
Sophomore performances were
particularly pleasing against Ohio
State. Dick Flodin's triumph in
the 300, John Johnson's speedy
:06.3 in winning the 60 yard dash,
Jesse Blount's second in the high
hurdles, and Laird Sloan's effort
in staying right behind Scruggs in
the 600 all impressed coach Can-
ham.
After balancing the good points
against the bad from Tuesday's
meet, Canham was fairly opti-
mistic for future title chances to
the point of saying, "We have the
chance to win if we can take ev-
ery point we expect out of every
man."

By DAVE RORABACHER
F Rated by Coach Cliff Keen as a
"tremendous competitor," flashy
Michigan wrestler Mike Rodriguez
has shown fine form this season.
Winning five of his seven
matches in dual meets, Rodriguez
adds color and strength in his up-
per middle weights. In one of his
finer performances last Saturday,
he managed to pin his opponent,
Ken Kraft of Northwestern, who
was previously undefeated. In his
two defeats he has been decisioned
by Illini ace Larry TenPas, whom
Rodriguez rates as tops, and John
Winder of Iowa. Both TenPas and
Winder are defending Big Ten
titleholders.'
Has Full Schedule
Since his marriage two and a
half years ago, Rodriguez has been
hard pressed to fit wrestling into
his schedule. Despite the old, ad-
age that two can live as cheaply
as one, Rodriguez admits that
having a family while attending
college makes "rough going."
Besides attending classes every
morning and wrestling practice ev-
ery afternoon, Rodriguez works
five nights a week as a grinder. By
making good use-of spare minutes
he is able to get most of his study-
ing done in the early part of the
afternoon before practice. Al-
though not complaining about this
full schedule he claims that it does
rather ruin his evenings.
Son Cheers Loudly
With a family that at present
consists of his wife, June, and
fourteen month old son, Steven
Michael, Rodriguez has an en-
thusiastic rooting section when-
ever he takes to the mat. Espec-
ially zealous is little Steven, who
stands up and yells loudly for his
"Daddy" to win.

Rodriguez started his wrestling
career at Ann Arbor High School,
when he was too short for the bas-
ketball squad. Making more than
just a pastime out of the sport, he
subsequently won the 147 pound,
state championship two years in
a row.
After high school he lacked the
necessary credits to get into the
university, so he went to Kiski
preparatory school in Pennsl-
vania. Here he extended his fine
record by annexing the national
prep school championship in 1952.
Rodriguez avers that he has
"had to wait a long time to get on
Michigan's wrestling team." Fol-
lowing prep school, he attended
nearby Michigan State Normal for
a semester before transferring to

the university. And then, just
when he became eligible for ath-
letics last year, he was injured in
his first meet. However, he still
managed to tie his opponent, who
had been third in the NCAA tour-
nament the year before.
Often described as flashy, Rod-
riguez is an extremely fast and
colorful wrestler. In the Wilkes-
Barre Invitational meet, which the
Wolverines won to open their sea-
son, crowds of other wrestlers oft-
en gathered to watch his bouts.
He always seems to come up with
just the right hold at the proper
time and his smooth manner
brings a cheer from onlookers.
With an addition to his per-
sonal cheering section on the way,
Rodriguez should be a toucher
man to beat next year.
