'ROSE BOWL' OF WRESTLING
Nearly 300 wrestlers from 50 colleges and athletic clubs competed in the 24th holiday meet at little Wilkes College (Pa.), "Wrestling Capital of the East"
Evasive tactics by Hofstra's John Waples, who rolls desperately onto his side to avoid being pinned (above) and tries a bridge (below), fail to dislodge grip of former National Champion Frank Bettucci of the Ithaca ( N.Y.) Grapplers Club. Latter failed to pin his opponent but won the 147-pound match handily by decision.
Shoulders to the floor, former Indiana star Robert Carlin and George Creason of Syracuse battle in a 130-pound match. Carlin, now wrestling for the Air Force, was knocked out early in the struggle, revived, then pinned in 5:20. Creason later lost in the finals to Lehigh Freshman Leon Harbold on a pin in 2:58.
