NOWADAYS the Big Ten team wrestling championship ,is decided by
one big meet early in March in a matter of two days. This was the
case this past weekend when Michigan walked off with its ninth Con-
ference championship.
BUT BACK iN 1929 it was different. The Big Ten was divided into
Eastern and Western Divisions for wrestling, and a winner was chosen
for each section on the basis of performance in dual meets.
THAT'S WHY there was so much excitement generated over a dual
meet between Michigan and Indiana in Yost Field House on March 2.
Neither team had lost in conference competition,, and only a tie with
Northwestern marred the Hoosier record. By beating the Wolverines
they could take the Eastern division title and move on to Champaign
to battle Illinois, a team that had dominated league grappling for
eight years.
DESPITE VICTORIES by "M" men Red Elliott, Atto Kelly, Bud Hew-
itt, a member of the United States Olympic team the summer before,
Michigan trailed the Hoosiers 14-9 with but one event remaining on
the program. Coach Cliff Keen's heavyweight would have to do more
than outpoint his opponent; the Hoosier had to be pinned in order to
get the five points to tie the match.
MICHIGAN'S BIG ED DON GEORGE, destined later to become the
world's professional mat title holder, did just that, pinning his oppo-
nent after 4 minutes and 12 seconds, and assuring Michigan of a third
straight Eastern Division title.
