ROBIN FREEMAN
... OSU ace returns

Former 'M'
Icers Eye
By The Associated Press
Two former Michigan Varsity
hockey players, Willard Ikola and
John Matchefts, were among the
22 men who were selected to try
out for the United States Olympic
hockey squad.
Matchefts was captain and cen-
ter of the 1950-51 Wolverine squad,
which won the NCAA champion-
ship during his senior year. Ikola,
who graduated in 1954, was goalie
on the national champions of 1952
and 1953.
Start Training Tomorrow
Players who will make up the
Olympic team will start training in
Duluth, Minnesota, tomorrow. Of
the 22 players picked for the train-
ing, 17 will be selected for final
registration on January 10. The
five-player cut is expected to be
made before Christmas.
Hockey fans in this area will
have a chance to see the U.S. squad
play Michigan's current team in a
U.S. Olympic Fund benefit contest
at the Olympia in Detroit on Janu-
ary 11.

By JIM BAAD
On return from vacation, Michi-
gan's basketball team will em-
bark on another Big Ten season
-"an extremely tough one" ac-
cording to coach Bill Perigo.
The Wolverines, upon finishing
their seven "warm-up" games, en-
ter into conference competition
against Ohio State, featuring,
probably, another fabulous court
performance by Robin Freeman,
one of basketball's greatest shots.
Before quitting at the end of 13
games because of illness last
season, Freeman had compiled an
average of 31.5 points a game.
Backing up Freeman will be a
host of "tall men," that necessary
basketball item that has eluded
OSU in past years. On the start-
ing five are Frank Howard, 6'5",
and Ken Sidle, 6'5".
Minnesota Next
Next on the Michigan schedule
is Minnesota. Here will be defi-
nite trouble in the hulking form of
Bill Simonovich, the 6'11" Golden
Gopher center who needs only to
stick up his great arms, receive
the ball, and turn around to make
a basket.
A happy thought is the very
noticeable absence of All-Ameri-
cans Dick Garmaker and Chuck
Mencel. Minnesota coach Ozzie
Cowles feels that the loss of these
two will definitely hurt his team,
but he is depending on sophomore
talent to fill the gap.
After Minnesota, the Blue team
faces the 'easier' Big Ten teams,
Purdue, Northwestern and Wis-
consin. None of these teams
possesses any great potential, but
all are stamped "improved" or
"building."
Purdue has several returning
lettermen on its squad, among
them Joe Sexson, who led last
year's squad in scoring. Despite
its rating, Purdue has beaten Mis-
souri, the team which dumped
highly-ranked Illinois, 74-73, if
this means anything.

Northwestern has its hopes rid-
ing on 6'11" center, Bill Schulz,
who was ineligible last year, but
who is ready to go this season
with some extra scoring punch.
Wisconsin is "building." Top
scorer Dick Cable has been lost,
and the sophomore talent, though
good enough, is not very tall.
Cream of Crop
Following this "soft spot" in the
schedule, Michigan takes on the
cream of the Western Conference
crop, the top four teams, Iowa,
Illinois, Indiana and Michigan
State.
Iowa has definitely been rated
the Number one team in the Big
Ten by many sources in the know,
besides holding down fourth place
in the nation on the weekly As-
sociated Press basketball poll.
The Hawkeyes have lost only
one of the regulars from their
1955 Western Conference cham-
pions. Returning in a good cause
to hold their title are Carl Cain,
Bill Logan, Milt Scheuerman and1
Bill Seaberg.
Cain, a 6'3" forward, is expected
to do great things for the Hawk-1
eyes this year. Coach Bucky 0'-
Afain?
You'd think Ron Kramer
would be satisfied after making
virtually every major all-Ameri-
ca football team.;
Kramer may be satisfied, but
the magazines aren't: Sport
Magazine thinks enough of his1
basketball abilities to give him
an honorable mention rating on,
its pre-season all-America hoop
team.
Better watch out, Mr. Cul-
bertson-he plays bridge, too.
Connor feels that his team is every
bit as strong this year as they
were in last year's championship
drive.
Illini Strong
Illinois will be a strong chal-
lenger to Iowa's chances. The
whole Illini first string is back
with a host of talented sopho-
mores. Among the returnees are
Paul Judson and Bill Ridley, both
of whom were picked on several
all Big Ten teams a year ago.
Supplementing this experience
is Hary Schmidt, 6'6", who broke
into the starting lineup this year,
replacing Bruce Brothers, a regu-
lar of last year.
In Indiana the court looks
strange. A familiar figure is miss-
ing. Don Schlundt is finally gone.
After four long years Indiana must
find a new center, and they don't
seem very upset.
Archie Dees is the answer. Dees,
a 6'8" sophomore, is only one of
the many first-year varsity men
who will make Indiana strong this
year. Charlie Brown and Paxton
Lumpkin are two more.
Rounding out the Big Ten pic-
ture is MSU. The Spartans have
Julius McCoy, Duane Peterson and
Walt Godfrey back, and a sopho-
more of promise, Jack Quiggle.
Perigo rates Michigan State fourth
behind the three I's.

BILL SIMONOVICH
. .. 611" Gopher
Wolverine
Swimmers
Lack Depth
By ALAN WINKELSTEIN
Although a solid nucleus of ten
lettermen are returning to the
Wolverine swimming squad, a ser-
ious lack of depth poses a big!
problem for the natators.
Michigan's most serious problem
is a scarcity of sophomore talent
to back up the group of outstand-
ing lettermen. This is coupled with
the loss of several consistent point
scorers from last year's team.
Among the ten returning veter-
ans, .eight placed in the top six
in at least one event in last year's
Big Ten championship meet. Com-
bined they placed in 14 events.
Leading the 1955 squad will be
one of the greatest swimmers in
the world, Jack Wardrop. Wardrop
set the world's record in the 400
yard individual medley, and holds
the world, NCAA and Big Ten
championship in the 220 yard free
style.
The other half of the Wardrop
team, brother Bert, is also return-
ing. Bert was a consistent per-
former last year, and was extreme-
ly valuable for his ability to pick
up points in practically any event.
Co-captains John O'Reilly and
Mike Delaney should also be im-
portant factors in the Wolverines'
bid for conference honors. In last
year's Big Ten Conference meet,
Delaney was third in the 200 yard
butterfly while O'Reilly placed
second in the 1500 yard free style,
and took fourths in both the 220
and 440 yard free style.
Despite their lack of depth, the
Wolverines should be a strong con-
tender for conference honors. Last
year's winner, Ohio State, has the
problem of replacing several grad-
uates, including two of their great-
est swimmers, Ford Konno and
Yoshi Oyakawa. OSU also is lack-
ing in outstanding sophomore per-
formers.
Indiana and Michigan State both
have strong, well-balanced squads,
and pose a serious threat.
A vital factor in Michigan
championship chances will be the
performances of the other letter-
men. Much is expected of Jim
Kruthers in the back stroke events,
Jim Thurlow in the breast stroke,
Harrison Wehner and Fritz Myers
in the free style races and Charlie
Bates and John Narcy in the div-
ing.

By TOM BEIERLE
Michigan sports history is full
of the sagas of the many fine
wrestlers who have competed for
the Maize and Blue.
Mike Rodriguez is the latest in
this long line of top - notch
grapplers.
Last year as a sophomore, the
157 pounder won the Big Ten
Championship in this event and
later went on to place second in
the NCAA tournament to Iowa
State's Bill Weick, who formerly
held the NCAA 137 pound title.
Bright Future'
In the words of wrestling Coach
Cliff Keen, "Anyone who can do
this as a sophomore has a very
bright future. He is definitely one
of the best."
Even though he is only a junior,
Rodriguez was elected by his team-
mates to captain this year's squad.
This is one of the highest tributes
that can ever be payed to an ath-
lete and it reflects how hard a
worker Rodriguez is; in fact, he is
probably one of the busiest men
on campus.
Aside from spending up to 18
hours a week at wrestling practice,
Rodriguez is holding down a part
time job in a gas station to sup-
port his wife, June, and two chil-
dren, Steve and Jacquelyn. He
explains that it is not so tough this
year - as last, since he has three
nights off a week to study. Last
year he worked every night after
supper for eight hours.
Rodriguez is carrying 18 hours
of credit, majoring in Physical
Education. It is because he in-

tends to go into coaching (wrest-
ling preferably) that he is so ac-
tive in sports.
This fall he tried out for right
halfback on the football squad and
although he didn't do too well
since there were four seniors ahead
of him, he may well be out there
trying again next year.
This will depend on his activi-
ties this spring. Rodriguez is
planning on trying out for the
Olympic wrestling team. Should
he make it, he will have to drop
from school for a semester to
compete in the games. In his esti-
mation, the sacrifice will be well
worthwhile.
State Champ
Rodriguez is from Ann Arbor,
having won the high school 147-
pound state championship two
years in a row. He then spent a
year at Kiski Preparatory School
in Pennsylvania picking up some
credits he lacked froni high school
and also picked up the National
Prep School Championship in 1952.
After spending a semester at
Michigan State Normal, Rodriguez
finally made it back to Ann Arbor
and has since been the pace-setter
on the Michigan team.
Rodriguez's wrestling style is
very exciting to watch. He is ex-
tremely versatile and exceptionally
fast. In meets in which wrestlers
from many schools are entered, it
is not at all uncommon to have
crowds of them gathered about to
watch his bouts.
It is quite evident that Rodri-
guez will be a thorn in the side of
all Big Ten 157 pounders this year.
