THE MUSCULAR MAIN LINE

Conservative Main Line Philadelphia has gone grunt-and-groan. Wrestling, one of the fastest-growing school- boy and college sports, has so captured the hearts of this usually staid, unexcitable society that board chairmen have been known to miss business conferences and society matrons have passed up bridge tournaments just to catch a prep school match. Perhaps the main reason is the Haverford School, which in seven years has won 88 of 95 dual meets. In these pictures, Haverford plays host in Ryan Memorial Gymnasium to Lawrenceville, spoiler of Haverford's otherwise perfect 1956 season record. Coach Neil Buckley (see page 25) had his Haverfords up for this one, and the pep talk he gave them was really unnecessary. Haverford's 103-pound tiger, Phil Burnham, was the first on the mat. He won with a pin in the first period. Similar efficiency followed with unbelievable precision. Haverford won eight of 10 matches to preserve '57's undefeated streak.
