JE INTER LAKE, Thursday, January 19, 1956 Braves Wrestling Debut With Missoula Friday Meet Helena in Preliminary to Saturday Game For the first time in its history, Flathead County High School Is developing' an interscholastic grunt and groan department. Although wrestling is all new to FCHS muscle flexers, 35 novices are putting a great deal of energy into heavy calisthenics and practice matches every day, according to Bob Olson, school wrestling coach. The Braves wrestling lineup will make its debut before the public in regular interschool competition with Missoula Friday at 7:30 p. m. in the school gymnas- · lum. From 15 to 20 matches are scheduled, Olson said. Flathead muscle men will tangle with Helena in a dual meet Saturday as a preliminary to the basketball game. About 12 matches are scheduled for that night. . Saturday at 10:30 a. m. wrestling In Western Montana will be given another boost in a special clinic for coaches and officials at Flathead County High School. . Those conducting the meeting 'will be "Jug" Beck, wrestling coach of Missoula County High School; Marlyn Jensen and Bob Olson, FCHS coaches; Max Stark Poison High School wrestling coach and Dr. Keith Bowen, wrestling coach at Montana State College at Bozeman. Discussion w h i c h will run through Saturday afternoon will be concerned with high school wrestling rules, officiating, conditions of athletes, calisthenics and equipment. Coaches and wrestling officials from about 20 western Montana schools are expected to attend the clinic which was arranged in the interest of expanding the wrestling program. Olson said the turnout for wrestling at the high school has been encouraging. The boys seem to be taking a real interest in the sport which should prove highly entertaining to those who attend scheduled matches. The FCHS coach said he believes Friday night's match with Missoula will be the first regular ..interscholastic. wrestling competition held in western-Montana. About 20 wrestlers from Mis- .zoula will come to Kalispell for the match. Twelve are expected from Helena for pre-Flathead- Helena game matches Saturday night. High school wrestling rules provide for six-minute matches scored on a point system. A "fall" ends the match and determines the winner. READY TO FIGHT--Bill Parker, 155-pounder of the FCHS wrestling: team, shows how he will greet visiting opponents from .Missoula Friday. Parker is one of 35 squad members taking thorough training under the direction of coaches Bob Olson and Marlyn Jensen. REAL ACTION--Members of the newly organized Flathead County High School wrestling team find there's plenty of action for everyone in the sport.

And the Tar Heels got their revenge in a pulse-pounding, 73-69 game that was not settled until the final eight seconds of play. Dayton, the nation's No. 2 team, ran its perfect record to 13-0 -matching that of national leader San Francisco -- by drubbing Villanova, 71-50.

Although for the past three years, everything has gone to the Bengals, what they got, they had to scrap for with the cage meetings of the two teams being battles from start to finish. The heated basketball rivalry between the Braves and Bengals started during the 1948-49 season. Their first game that season saw the Braves win a 53-47 overtime thriller in the old Flathead gym.

As soon as the bout was over.. the Cow Palace switchboard was flooded by long distance telephone calls from television fans protesting the champ's tactics. Referee Ray,Flores' and Commission physician Dr. Robert Laddon agreed that the bout should be stopped after arguing hotly between the llth and 12th rounds whether Elorde should continue. Flores had called time in the and llth to have Laddon the wound.

The last four straight losses on the road have been hard to take, and there is a definite feeling that the youthful Bobcats . may "find themselves" now that they are home again. On the other hand, the home floor advantage looks like the main one Dobbie Lambert's crew will have. Art Smith's speed Bucs are. now in pursuit of their third successive .Evergreen Conference crown. In addition, their non-league record this season shows wins over Montana State University, Washington State, College of Idaho and Willamette. While the Bobcats and Bucs first feuded on the basketball court "in 19i7, the other games played, by the two clubs were in the 1948-51 period. MSC holds seven wins in the 11 starts. Defense has really been stressed all week as Lambert tried to .get the predominately freshman and sophomore squad set for the expected Pirate attack. He has also been concentrating on offensive rebounding, passing and rule violations, where the Boh cats have been consistently losing the ball.. If the game narrows down to a free throw battle, Whitworth would apprently have a big average. The Bucs are among the top three teams in the nation from the charity stripe, with a 74 per cent accuracy. Meanwhile the Bobcats are down to a 62 per cent team mark. Before the Bobcats and Pirates get set to go at it each night, the MSC junior varsity will, meet Northwest Community College of Powell, Wyo., in preliminary fairs. af- The pudu, world's smallest deer, is only 13 inches high at the shoul- bus muskrat trapping season from Friday through April 30 in five western Montana irrigation districts.

The victory atoned for a 10- round non-title decision -which Elorde took from Saddler last summer during the titilist's jaun( through the Orient. The bout, which · started as fairly slow affair, was a bloody rhubarb from the fifth round on. Elorde, who spent a good part the night trying to keep his away from Saddler's grinding head, began to bleed from the mouth in that heat. The damaging cut began to appear above his left eye in the enth, but in the ninth the artistic southpaw started the blood from Saddler's nose with a set of combinations.
