Thinclads Set for
Canham Says 'M' Quartet May Attempt
World Record at Michigan State Relays

Four Between-Semester Mee

ANN ARBOR SOPH:
Wrestler Fitzgerald Makes
Good Start for Matmen

By JIM BENAGI

Before they enter their first class
of second semester, Michigan's
many sophomore trackmen will be
seasoned veterans of indoor com-
petition.
That's because of Michigan's
between-semester schedule that
includes meets at Boston, Chicago,
Ann Arbor and East Lansing. For,
most Qf the sophomores, this will
be the first competition as mem-
bers of the Michigan team.
The competition begins Satur-

lF

day when Coach Don Canhaml
takes a contingent of sophomores
Tom Robinson, Dick Cephas and
Fred Montour, and seniors Joel
Boyden and Capt. Mamon Gibson
to Chicago for the Chicago-land
Open.
The meet is sponsored by the
University of Chicago Track Club
and will be held at the school's
fleldhouse.
Robinson in '60'
Robinson will run in the 60-yd.
dash, an event he has been run-
ning in :06.2 in practice and
meets. The Big Ten record for this
dash is :06.1.
The young speedster defeated
Olympic star Ira Murchinson at
Chicago during the holidays.
Canham will enter Cephas in the
70-yd. low hurdles; Boyden in
the shot put; Montour in the half
mile; and Gibson, a native Chi-
cagoan, in the pole vault.
Two at Boston
Meanwhile Saturday, two other
Michigan athletes will compete in
Boston's Knights of Columbus in-
vitational, which annually attracts
the best thinclads in the East.
Eeles Landstrom will be among the
favorites in the pole vault while
freshman distanceman Ergas Leps
will get some board-track experi-
ence in the 1,000-yd. run.
The rest of the squad will look
forward to Jan. 31 when Ann
Arbor against hosts the Michigan
AAU and to Feb. 7 when the team
travels to East Lansing for the
Michigan State Relays.
Canham expects almost com-
plete attendance from his squad
at the AAU field, including several
freshmen who will compete un-
attached. He expects almost 300

the coach added. "We Just have
more guys this year."
Canham also said he has poten-
tial to shoot for Relays records
in mile relay. two-mile relay, 75-
yd. dash and pole vault if his
competitors turn in good perform-
ances. Past Michigan quartets hold
both relay records. This year, how-
ever, the veteran coach boasts a
half-dozen good quartermilers and
an equal number of sound half-
milers.
Robinson is his hopeful in the
sprint, while Landstrom, the great-
est vaulter in Michigan history,
has vaulted better than the record
many times in the past.

HALF-MILERS--Wally Schafer, Bruce Fischer, Tony Seth, Frank
Geist and Cam Gray grab for a share of the baton and a change
to run on Michigan's two-mile relay team, which will run at the
Michigan State Relays during the semester break. Coach Don

Canham will pick three of the
Earl Deardorff on the quartet.

SPORT SHORTS:
Two Veteran
Pitchers Cut
Two veteran major league
pitchers got their walking papers
yesterday.
The Chicago White Sox as-
signed righthander Bob Keegan,
who pitched a no-hitter against
Washington in 1957, to Indianapo-
lis. Now 37, Keegan had been with
the White Sox since 1953.
Chuck Stobbs, 29-yr.-old south-
paw who spent several infamous
losing seasons with the Washing-
ton Senators, was put on the
waiver list 'by the St. Louis Card-
inals ,who plan to give him an un-
conditional release.
In other major league action the
Cleveland Indians sold first base-
man Joe Altobelli to Toronto of
the International League for
$20,000.
SOUTH BEND -- Dick Stanfel,
former Detroit Lion star and now
a guard on the Washington Red-
skins team, was named assistant
line coach at Notre Dame yester-
day by new head coach Joe Ku-
harich who coached the Redskins
during the past season.

By DAVE LYON
"Local boy makes good" may be
a rather hackneyed expression,
but it is valid in describing Dennis
Fitzgerald, who at this point in
the current season is the most
successful member of Coach Cliff
Keen's wrestling team.
A sophomore, Fitzgerald in four
dual meets and a tournament has
lost only one match and drawn
another while competing at 167
and 177 lbs. "He's made a good
start," says Keen. "He's a good
competitor, although of course he
is still somewhat green."
During the short time he has
faced collegiate competition, "Fitz"
has demonstrated a determined
and aggressive style of wrestling.
This, combined with endurance,
has resulted in his mat success.
Lost to Champs
The only two opponents Fitz-
gerald has notbeaten this season
were good enough to be NCAA
champions in 1957. After battling
his way to the finals of the star-
studded Wilkes College open tour-
nament last month, he lost to for-
mner Oklahoma State standout
Doug Blubaugh. Blubaugh is the
man who deprived Michigan's
great Mike Rodriguez of the 157-
lb. NCAA title two years ago.
The other blemish on Fitz-
gerald's record is a 6-6 draw in
Michigan's one-sided dual-meet
loss to Pitt earlier this month. His
opponennt, Tom Alberts, won the
NCAA 167-lb. title in 1957.
So it has taken the best this
season to beat Fitzgerald, who
never wrestled while attending
Ann Arbor St. Thomas High
School because the schooldid not
have a wrestling team until 1955,
the year after Fitzgerald gradu-
ated.
Nine Letter Man
Re did win nine letters in three
sports there, however. Then he
went into the Marines for two
years and there la4nched his
wrestling career,,competing in All-
Marine and AAU tourneys.
A reserve fullback on the foot-

ball team last fall, "Fitz" says
that wrestling "helps keep me in
shape for football."
It has other assets, too: "It's one
of thermost highly-competitive
sports. In other team sports youj
can rely on the other fellows to
alleviate your mistakes, but in
wrestling you're on your own." In
this way, he adds, "it keeps you
physically and mentally sharp."
If Fitzgerald's performance so
far is any indication, he will figure
prominently in Michigan's chances
for dual and Big Ten meet success
during the rest of this season.

Record Run
The Michigan coach stated that
he might piece together a strong
medley relay quartet at this
meet-in an attempt to break the
world indoor record.
His own foursome established
the mark-a 3:26.5-during the
1956 Relays.

The company ranks fourth in total revenues among
investor-owned operating utility companies providing

Jersey in a thriving territory marked by diversified indus-
try, Public Service is certain to realize a dynamic expan-
sion in the years to come.
You would be wise to consider working for this rapidly
