HARKNESS NEARS PEAK IN COLLEGE WRESTLING

NEXT FOE IS MARSHALL WORD, BIG SIX CHAMPION

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

STATE COLLEGE, PENNA., March 25--Captain John Harkness '38, of the Crimson grapplers, Eastern Intercollegiate 175-pound mat champion, worked his way into the semi-finals of the N.C.A.A. wrestling championships by defeating Jim Taylor, Cornell College (Iowa) in the second round this afternoon and Wesley Leverich, Illinois, in the quarter-finals this evening.

Against Taylor the Crimson powerhouse had some trouble in bringing his man down, but once on the mat he easily held the advantage and gained several near falls. It was a referee's decision.

Meeting Leverich, Harkness won an easy decision, staying on top of his opponent for most of the fight. He mauled the Westerner constantly and was never in danger.

In the semi-finals Harkness is slated to meet Marshall Word, of Oklahoma University, Big Six title-holder. Three other Big Three grapplers who gained the semi-finals were Richard Harding, 126-pound class, Charles Powers, 155, and Charlie Toll, heavy, all of Princeton.
