Pitt Edges
'M' Matmen
Despite its grand total of 59
points, the Michigan wrestling
squad was nevertheless forced tos
settle for a second place finish
in the mammoth Wilkes-Barre
Wrestling Tournament held at
Wilkes Barre, Pa., Dec. 28-30.
The tournament, billed as "the
largest wrestling meet held any-
where," was won by Pittsburgh
University which managed to
amass 69 points by virtue of its
overpowering depth.
Captain Mike Rodriguez was
the lone titlist for the Wolverines,
narrowly decisioning Dave John-
son of Pittsburgh, 4-2, for the
157-pound crown. The two will
meet again in the Michigan-Pitt
duel meet at Yost Field House thisa
Frank Hirt, Michigan 137-
pounder, displayed fine form as
he captured the runner-up posi-
tion in that division.
Third place finishes were gar-
nered by 167-pounder John Mc-
Mahon and sophomore Jack Mar-,
chello at 177 pounds, while fourth
places went to Jack Porter, at 130
pounds, and sophomore heavy-
weight Rupett O'Brien who was

Defeat Western Teams,
Fail in Big Ten Opener

Michigan's entrance into the Big
Ten basketball wars proved to be
an unhappy one when Ohio State
downed the cagers, 79-66, at Yost
Fieldhouse Monday night.
The Wolverines had rolled to
three straight holiday triumphs
before falling to the amazing
shooting of Robin Freeman and
Company. The Buckeyes wereoff
and running with the opening
whistle and netted 25 points be-
fore finally missing the hoop.
Despite the shooting and ball-
handling difficulties encountered
by the Wolverines, any team would
have had trouble staying with the
red-hot Bucks who pumped in
shots at a 72% clip during the
first half.
Butler University turned back
Michigan, 63-57, in the first holi-
day game. Ron Kramer reinjured
his ribs and scored only two points
and the whole team was "the

farthest off of any game this
season" according to Coach Bill
In Oregon for a two-night stand
the Wolverines dropped an 84-71
decision to Oregon State before
turning back Oregon, 81-71, on the
second evening.

Kramer set a new school
record by netting 30 points
the Webfeet who had
beaten Oregon State and

Stager learned today that sopho-
more sprinter Bernie Rinella, who
suffered fainting spells while
working out during the recent
vacation, would be out of action
Pleased with the showing of
most of the squad in the Christ-
mas Forum at Fort Lauderdale,
Fla., Stager was especially happy
with the performance of freshman
Dick Hanley, who upset the favor-
ites in the 200 meter event.
Wolverine swimming stars Bert
and Jack Wardrop did not partici-
pate in the Forum.

The cagers tripped Denver,
79-69, before giving their best per-
formance of the year in upsetting
highly-ranked Brigham Young,
The Wolverines trailed until the
last few minutes but came on
strong to upend the Cougars, rated
fifth in the nation earlier in the
season and fresh from a victory
in the Motor City cage tourney.
Pexigo called it a "bang-up job."

1Johnny Mercer pays a debt. When
Johnny was 17, his dad failed-owing
friends a million dollars."Don't worry,
pop," promised Johnny, "some day I'll
pay them back." How the famous song.
writer lived with his vow for 25 years,
won the undying respect of Savannah
by honoring his dead father's debt..
2 How can a person not be French? A
Frenchman without a mistress is like
an Englishman without a club. The
French are hospitable-so long as you do
not want to enter their homes. French-
men run after women; Englishmen
merely run across them. Chuckles from
"The Notebooks of Major Thompson."
3 Test that tells how fast you live. Your
basal metabolic rate (BMR)-the low-
est rate at which your body converts
food into energy-shows whether you
are living at abnormal racing-car speed
or chugging along half alive. How
BMR works, and how this test gives
doctors clues to your state of health.
4 Rising cost of veteran aid. We can't
do enough for men disabled by war...
but what about the free treatments,
pensions given vets for injuries not con-
nected with service? Stanley Frank tells
why veteran aid-a staggering drain-
can weaken our economy; shows prob-
lems involved in effecting a solution.
5 Turning bad boys into good. "Red"
used to win praise from the gang by
pitching rocks at street lamps. Then he
joined a Boys' Club and became a
basketball star. How Boys' Clubs
across the U.S. are winning over de-
linquency by filling kids' idle hours
with wholesome recreation.
6 How to retire on $20 a week. Charlie
Lavin saw two things: oldsters ill-
housed ... and a huge estate nobody
wanted. So? Here's how his big heart
spurred him to start a home where old
folks could be happy, useful-and how
there are now 5 of these self-sustaining
7 Remove obstacles to public service.
When top civilians take gov't jobs it
usually means a huge pay cut, giving
up pensions and investments of a life-
time. (Yet senators keep their business
connections.) Why it is harder and
harder to attract big businessmen to
high office; how to ease this situation.
8 Movies go to school. For an entire
term a ninth-grade science class was
instructed by films. Result: they did
20% better on exams than classes
taught the old-fashioned way. How
movies are now being used in more than
90% of our high schools to teach every-
thing from algebra to zoology.
9 Private life of Adolf Hitler. Was the
Fuehrer insane? What about his mis-
tress, Eva Braun-did he really marry
her the night before they planned to
kill themselves? Was his body burned,
or is it secretly buried? Heinz Linge,
Hitler's valet for 20 years, now reveals
intimate facts about the dictator.
10 The churches repent. While the wor-
ship of God is still conducted on a pre-
dominantly Jim Crow basis in some
parts of the country, churches are be-
ginning to open their doors to Christ-
ians of all complexions. Report on the
obstacles that lie in the path of inter-
racial worship.

1 Wonders of tape recording. Robbers
breaking in set off a recording which
blares: "Help! Thieves! Police!"... an
exterminator "baits" his trap with the
taped mating call of a female rat.. .
in many homes parents record baby's
first "gooings." Myriad uses of the tape
recorder, and how it might serve you.
12 Learn to live with your worries. Some
worries and anxieties are normal: we
shouldn't dodge them. But some are
useless and simply wear us down. Ardis
Whitman tells of the kind of worry
that you should learn to overcome ...
and how you can wisely profit by put-
ting sensible anxieties to good use.
13 The one and only Benchley. Leaving
a club Benchley asked the uniformed
man at the door to please get a cab. The
man drew himself up, replied icily, "I
happen to be an admiral in the Navy."
"Okay," quipped Bob."Then get me a
battleship." Intimate glimpses from
the life of this well-loved humorist.
14 Own a stake in America's future. Stock
Exchange president Keith Funston is a
man with a mission: to make every-
one a capitalist. Portrait of the former
college prexy whose virile ideas are
presenting the Exchange in a new
light, persuading more men and women
to invest in the future of America.
15 Facts about abortion. A grandmother
with heart disease... a 13-year-old rape
victim-both were pregnant, asked
abortions. Should they have been
granted? The fact is, such decisions
vary by doctors and by hospitals. How
muddled laws, pleas of desperate wom-
en have made an unsavory problem.
16 World's most wonderful store. It will
repair your shoes, insure your life,
build you a tennis court, decorate
your home, find a school for your child
-even get you a live rhinoceros (price
£5000 delivered). You name it, Har-
rods has it. Fascinating story of Eng-
land's most remarkable store.
17 The Bruce Barton story. He gradu-
ated in a depression. Everywhere they
said "No job. No job." When he did
land one the firm folded, owing him
$700. At the time, he was crushed.What
was the use of trying? Bruce Barton
tells why he now-knows any experience,
even the worst, can be turned to profit.
1 8 it pays to increase your word power.
Does "cupidity" mean curiosity, greed,
temptation, or vanity? By adding new
words to your vocabulary you increase
your self-confidence, your prestige-
and even your earning power. Here's a
word quiz that's fun to answer, and
that will pay you dividends.
19 Five kids and a farm. "Whatever hap-
pens," said the dying mother, "try to
stay together." Next day the orphans
(5 to 17) were left with only a run-down
farm. Inspiring story of how the five
Miller youngsters have sacrificed and
fought because they're "stubborn"
enough to want to remain a family.
20 Lincoln's first big fee. Abe was 46 and
a "failure" when he got his first big
case. Night after night he toiled on the
brief, but when he entered court the
other lawyers branded him a "gawky
ape" and he never got to speak. How
this bitter experience spurred Lincoln
on. proved a turning point in his life.

21 Mysteryoflife attheseashore.Awhelk
seizes a clam; devours it . .. A stone
crab spies the whelk, crushes its shell
and eats it. In excerpts from her new
book," The Edgeof the Sea," Rachel Car-
son describes the strange world where
a million, million tiny creatures prey
on each other along the ocean beaches.
22 First step up from slavery. Born a
slave, someone always stood over him,
showing him exactly how to do his work.
Then one day he was told to clean up a
woodshed-alone. And for the first time
he had to think out a job himself. How
this menial task proved a turning point
in the life of Booker T. Washington.
23 Housekeeping at the Arctic's edge.
YOU got troubles? Try running ahouse
(built on 50 feet of tundra) that "splits
open at the seams" with freezes and
thaws. Pipes bust, doors won't open,
and raging gales knock out power so
your living room becomes an ice box.
What it's like to live, in Nome, Alaska.
24 The day I went fishing witir Grover
Cleveland. I was 7 and running away
from home. (There are things a child
can not stand!) Up the road I met a man
with a fishpole who invited me to coe
along and tell my story. Nina Putnam
tells of the ex-President's two words
of wisdom that changed her life.
25 Progress in cleaning up the comics.
2 years ago newsstand "comics" dripped
torture, crime, rape. Then parents-
utter y fed up-forced the adoption of
a cleanup code against dealers and pub-
lishers. Here are the gains that have
been won against printed filth; why
parents must not relax their efforts.
2 6 Biggest little man In Asia. When Viet
Nam was granted independencein1954,
premier Ngo Dinh Diem faced an army
that defied him, Communist rebels, the
French government trying to unseat
him. How the spunky little premier
fought back, has won the loyalty-and
love-of a people determined to be free.
27 Bay City beats the teacher shortage.
26% of the average teacher's time goes
to chores like wiping boards, monitor-
ing lunchrooms. Here's how Bay City's
superintendent of schools has recruited
housewives to do these jobs ... freeing
teachers to handle bigger classes and
do an infinitely better job of teaching.
28 Book condensation: "I Was a Slave-
Laborer in the Soviet Union." Seized
without cause, sent to the frozen Arctic,
John Noble (a U.S. citizen) spent 4
grim years as a slave at a Soviet coal
mine. Here is Noble's unforgettable
story of Red brutality . . . how the
"slaves" rebelled in 1953-a rebellion
he feels can and will occur again.
2 9 Best advice I ever had. "A skinny
girl of 13, I quit a diving contest when
my curvaceous opponent won all tfte
applause. Then my dad grabbed me,
said something I'll never forget." Rosa-
lind Russell tells how his words, which
seemed cutting then, have guided her
through moments of despair ever since.
30 MacArthur,the man. Few persons have
been closer to MacArthur than his
friend and aide, Maj. Gen. Courtney
Whitney. Here-in selected excerpts
