The presentation of the Helms Foundation Hall of Fame Award
to Michigan wrestling Coach Cliff Keen last weekend brought to mind
something that isn't always recognized but, nevertheless, is quite
apparent in wrestling circles nowadays. I speak of the surge upward
In popularity of amateur wrestling.
When you speak about wrestling as a sport, nine out of ten
persons within earshot would probably laugh at you, as immediately
they picture in their minds the fiascos that go out over the television
networks under the label "big league wrestling." These persons haven't
been fortunate enough to see an amateur match where there are no
ropes. from which to bounce to and fro and where the contestants
must rely on legal holds rather than hair-pulling tactics to win.
It's this type of wrestling that is taking hold in American high
schools and colleges today. It is interesting to note that in cities like
Cleveland and Denver, high school wrestling gets equal billing with
basketball as a winter sport.
Several reasons can be advanced for this upsurge. One is to im-
prove upon our record in wrestling in international competition. In
the last'Olympics, the Russians dominated the sport. Another, is that
fellows of all sizes can participate. The smaller guys, who are left
off the football team because of their size, can make the grade in
wrestling because they are pitted against others in their weight

The Michigan bands perennially come in for heaps of
praise, but here's a dissenting vote on the basis of the Wol-
verine Band's performance at Monday night's basketball
' game with State. It appeared that several bandsmen were
tardy in arriving at the game and both squad's had been
on the floor warming-up for several minutes before the band
struck up a tune. At that, they lead off with "On Wisconsin"
and "Hal Minnesota."
* * * ,
Fordham's basketball coach Johnny Bach came up with an
idea recently that gets a hearty second from this corner. Bach wants
three officials on the court for basketball games. The caliber of
whistle blowing I've seen in a half-dozen Big Ten games this season
shows that a third man could be put to good use - at least it's
worthy of a trial.
'A move to establish a three man referee program for basketball
is a progressive move, second to none that has been advanced to
improve the rules of sport lately (including the two point extra poitn
in football). Baseball used to go with two umpires; now they have
four. Basketball officials have never been adverse to changing the
rules. Now let's have enough men on the court to enforce the elabor-
ate rules that are in the book.'
A sure sign of spring amongst the sub-zero temperatures:
Ray Fisher has the nets up in the south end of Yost Field
House and his baseball players have started to take their
daily swings. Fisher hopes to get his boys outdoors before
they launch a 34-game schedule at Rollins College in Winter
Park, Fla., during spring vacation, but the recent cold-wave
has chilled these plans at least temporarily.
s .
The over-emphasis on offense in basketball today was quite ap-
parent in the game with State Monday night. Although the score
wasn't extreme (79-69) there were some players on the court who
were completely befuddled as to what to do or where to go when the
opposition had the ball. And when these players couldn't score, eith-
er, they looked quite foolish out there.
It's'not only in these parts where defense is neglected. Just check
the scores around the country and see how many teams get 90 and
100 points, sometimes even in losing. Coaching tactics seem to be
geared to merely outscoring the opposition. This pays off in wins,
sometimes, but leaves very little to interest the fans, especially when
the all-shooting quintet is experiencing an off night. They have
those occasionally, you know.
What appeal would football have if the teams forgot about de-
fense? Or any sport, for that matter. Somebody once said, "A team's
best offense is Its defense." Could be, but you'd never know it.
There are still several good openings for fellows inter-
ested in writing sports on these pages. There are some great
opportunities available in the middle of Michigan's ever ex-
panding intercollegiate and intramural athletic programs as
a member of the Daily sports staff. If you're interested, come
to the Student Publications Building tomorrow at 4:15 p.m.

A scoring oddity, along with
several outstanding games were
features of last night's Class "A"
t-M basketball tilts.
The scoring oddity occurred in
a game between two unbeaten
teams, Sigma Chi and Delta Tau
Delta. Sigma Chi won 46-22,
scoring 23 points in each half
while Delta Tau Delta tallied 11
points in each half.
In another clash between two
unbeaten teams, Sigma Phi Ep-
silon defeated Lambda Chi Al-

poor floor shooting during the
first half and Sigma Phi Epsilon
led, 13-10, at the start of the sec-
ond half.
