Oklahoma Aggies Capture NCAA

Wrestling Title

Kaul Beaten


In Finals
'M' Nets 23 Points
For Seventh Place
Special to The Daily
ITHACA, N.Y. -- Despite the
loss of four of its six entries in
the preliminary events Friday
night, Michigan's wrestling team
still managed to turn in a credit-
able performance and for the third
straight year captured seventh
place in the finals of the NCAA
wrestling championships.
Winner of the meet was power-
ful Oklahoma A&M, which won
its 17th team title in 25 years. In
second place, and nine points be-
hind the winner, was Penn State.
4 They were followed by Pittsburgh,
Oklahoma, Lehigh, Iowa, and
Michigan in that order.
23 Points
In scoring 23 points, the Wolver-
ines wound up just one point out
of sixth place and but five out of?
third. Other Big Ten teams which
placed were Illinois, ninth, Michi-
gan State, 14th, Wisconsin, 16th,
Indiana, 17th, and Purdue, tied for
Michigan stars Andy Kaul and
Mike Rodriguez were each defeat-
ed in the finals of their respective
divisions. Kaul, fourth in last
year's meet, was surprised by
Lawrence Fornicola, of Penn State,
in the 137 pound class. Fornicola,
not good enough to make the Penn
State squad last year, whipped
Kaul, 6-0.
Sophomore Mike Rodriguez, in
a thrilling match, was nipped by
Bill Weick of Iow State Teach-
ers, 6-4. Weick won the 137 pound
title in 1952, and captured the 157
pound laurel last night after two
years in the armed services. Rod-
riguez had beaten Ed Rooney of
Syracuse in the semi-finals earlier
in the evening.
In the 123 pound consolation
round, Michigan's Dan Deppe,
beaten by Dick Meeks 3-1, gain-
ed fourth place. Meeks, from Illi-
nois, also defeated Deppe in the
Big Ten meet three weeks ago.
Outstanding Wrestler
The outstanding wrestler award
went to Ed Eichelberger, of Lehigh,
who won the 147-pound title by
pinning Lloyd Corwin, of Cornell
College. It was his fourth pin in
five tournament matches.
Leading Oklahoma to the title
were Myron Roderick and Fred
Davis. Roderick took the 130 pound
class, while Davis was winning in
the 167 pound division.
Six of the individual champion-
ships were decided by falls.
Peter Blair of Navy, retained his
191 pound crown by pinning Big
Ten champ, Ken Leuer, of Iowa,
in 5:01. Blair, along with Roderick
and Weick, were the only repeat-
ing champions.
Other Matches
In other matches, Terry Mc-
Cann, of Iowa, pinned David Bow-
lin, Oklahoma A&M, in the 115
pound class, in 7:06, and Dan
Kodge, Oklahoma, threw Joe
Krufka, of Penn State, to capture
the 177 pound division,
Ed Peery of Pittsburgh notched
the 123 pound event, while in the
final match of the evening, 3800
fans saw William Oberly, of Penn
State, decision Werner Seel, of Le-
In accordance with the meet
regulations, Michigan's Don Ha-
ney and Max Pearson were unable
to enter the consolation round, be-
cause the men who defeated them
failed to reach the finals.
In taking its second champion-
ship in a row, Oklahoma scored a

record number of 40 points. In win-
ning, the Aggies were to forced to
come from behind Pittsburgh, who
placed four men in the semi-finals.
The Aggies had placed only three.

Photographer Levels Assault,
Profanity Charges at Stengel

Casey Stengel, the man who made
baseball history by managing the
New York Yankees to five straight
pennants, was charged yesterday
with assault on a photographer
and use of profane language.
According to an affidavit by
Brannan "Sandy" Sanders, pho-
tographer for the St. Petersburg
Independent, Stengel used profane
language and kicked Sanders on
the right leg during the Yanks ex-
hibition game with Brooklyn yes-

house Stengel at first refused com-
ment. Later he told reporters, "this!
whole thing is being blown up out
of proportion. All I told the fel-

get out, when he sat down in the
dugout because he didn't belong
there. He said he had to make a
living, and I told him we had to
make one too."
Sanders had a different version.
"I was on the field in the firstf
inning when Brooklyn had loaded
the bases with nobody out," he
said. "With a man on third, I

moved near home plate to get a
possible picture. Stengel yelled,
'We're working, move away.'
"I moved away, over near the
Brooklyn bench where a couple of
the players said to roe, 'Who does
that guy think he is to talk to you
like that?'
"Get Out"
"I was going back toward first
base and stopped by the dugout to
tell Stengel I'd like to make a
picture at home plate and would
only be a few seconds. I was try-
ing to apologize for blocking his
view when. he cussed me out and
kicked me on the right leg. He
jumped up, made threatening ges-
tures and yelled, 'Who do you
think you are coming into our dug-
out? I told you to get the hell out
of the ball park, didn't I?'

What you may have heard about ECA's
standards for technical personnel IS true.
To some, these standards may seem exacting.
To the exceptional man, however, a career
with ECA can mean a refreshing lack of

engineers associate closely with men who have
made major contributions to their fields,
many of whom are scientists of international

Among ECA's projects are automatic controls
for business and industry, electronic business
