The whistle blew, and the youth-
ful man clad in t-shirt, sweat
pants, and sneakers, called "his"
boys over to start the first official
Michigan.basketball practice un-
der his direction, and also the
opening one of 1960.
That man was Dave Strack, new
head basketball coach who re-
placed his old boss for many years
Cage Managers?
All freshmen and sophomores
interested in becoming basket-
ball managers should contact
Bruce Lanard at NO 2-7601
after 6 p.m.
at Michigan, Bill Perigo; after
only a year away from his alma
mater.
"I consider myself fortunate to
be back here," said Strack, "al-
though my big break in basketball
was getting the Idaho job two
years ago. We had a pretty good
Iclub there, though only a 11-15
record, and I thoroughly enjoyed
the job. I feel it paved the way for
me to come back to Michigan."
Now that Strack is back at the
school from which he graduated
in 1946, what does he think about
it?
"Although I am the only new
Michigan coach this year, I had
no particular personal problems
getting adjusted. Just the usual
one of settling down again here
with my family."
Aware of Problems
As far as the team goes, Strack
said he was aware of many of the,
problems concerned with Michigan
basketball, such as the lack of
height, the "small" fieldhouse, and
other factors. "After all," he paid,
"I've only been away for a year.
I know quite a bit about most of
the boys, except last year's fresh-

and company when Michigan gave
opponents fits on the "court."
Even more recently, two years ago,
the Wolverines had a fine season
headed by George Lee and M. C.
Burton and finished second (tie)
in the Conference.
That year was Strack's last as
assistant basketball coach, and the
wiinning season probably was a
big factor in his promotion to
Idaho. That year was also John
Tidwell's first, and a big one for
the Herin, Ill. star. 'Now, Tidwell
is in his last season, as Captain,
while Strack is starting his first.
The reuniting of the two could
be a good omen for Michigan
basketball fortunes. .
Proven Player
Speaking of Tidwell, Strack
said, "John is the proven player
on the team. The other boys will
be fighting for positions, as I'm
starting from scratch with most
of them. Anyone who proves him-

self as a Big Ten caliber player
will do so right here on the the
court."
With these words implying that
"positions are wide open" the
Wolverines may have one of the
hottest team competition for spots
in recent years. "We're not too tall,
and not too deep, either," said
Strack, "but what we will do, we
will do right."
The hard working coach then
directed a drill where the players
run sideways, then backwards, up
and down, getting them into shape
for movements in a game situation.'
Good Shape
Actually,. the team is in relative
good condition, having been run-
ning on their own for a few weeks.
This should be good news for the
fans who suffered through last
season's games, and watched
Michigan "run out of gas" in the
late stages of close contests.
With a couple of starters from
last year on the football team,
(Bob Brown and Scott Maentz),
Strack has many problems to work
out between now and the first
game. "But," he stated, "since I
know and understand so many
of them, things shouldn't be too
bad."
"My assistant coaches, (Jim
Skala '52, and Tom Jorgenson, '55,
also freshman coach) and I will
be working real hard with the
team trying to bring us up the
ladder this year. Although we
don't have many proven players,
hustle and hard work can over-
come many obstacles, and if the
boys are willing to sacrifice, this
could be a real successful year."
Ending on this note, new head
coach Dave Strack blew his whistle
again, called his players over, and
began a new drill, the sight of
which will become a familiar one
to all practice observers this year.

CHICAGO VP) - Houston and
New York were granted National
League franchises yesterday in
line with an expansion program
to 10 teams effective for the 1962
season. -.
The vote to make Houston and
New York the, ninth and 10th
teams in the National League's
first structural change since 1900
were unanimous.
The announcement, made by
National League President Warren
Giles, followed a morning session
of the league's club owners. The
resolution on Houston and New
York was made by Walter O'Mal-
ley who, ironically had moved the
Dodgers out of Brooklyn to Los
Angeles in October of 1957, two
months after Horace Stoneham
had taken his Giants from New
York to San Francisco. .
"The resolution was enthusi-

astically accepted," said O'Malley.
"There was no concerted objec-
tions although earlier there had
been some feeling that along with
Houston, the Dallas-Ft. Worth
territory might be more feasible
than New York."
Giles, who said the club own-
ers' action will be finalized at the
Major League's annual convention
in St. Louis -in December, termed
the addition of New York and
Houston as a "giant progressive
step toward bringing Major League
baseball to all four corners of
the country."
. "This makes us a very solid
league geographically," he said
enthusiastically.
"To all intents and purposes,"
Giles added, "we are now a 10-
team league, with operations be-
ginning in 1962. There are certain
specifications the new clubs will

have to- meet, but I have no doubt
they will meet the qualifications.
I don't anticipate any obstacles."
Giles pointed out that two
points must be cleared to pave
the way for New York's and Hous-
ton's entry. First, a rule must be
changed to make New York, cur-
rently American League territory,
available to the National League.
This the NL expects to do as soon
as possible.
Second, the Houston Sports As-
sociation, recipients of the. Hous-
ton franchise, must acquire the
territorial rights from the, Hous-
ton Buffs of the American Asso-
ciation.
T h e syndicate representing
Houston presented plans of their
newly proposed $15 million sta-
dium which they said could 'fe
ready by the start of the 1962
season.

Here's the car that reads you loud and
clear-the new-size, you-size '61 Chev-
rolet. We started out by trimming the
outside size a bit (to give you extra inches
of clearance for parking and maneuvering)
but inside we left you a full measure of
Chevy comfort. Door openings are as
much as 6 inches wider to give feet, knees,
and elbows the undisputed right of way.
And the new easy-chair seats are as much
as 14% higher-just right for seeing, just
right for sitting.
Once you've settled inside you'll have
high and wide praises for Chevrolet's
spacious new dimensions (in the Sport
Coupes, for example, head room has been
upped as much as 2 inches, and there's
more leg room, too-front and rear).
Chevy's new trunk is something else that
will please you hugely-what with its
deep-well shape and bumper-level loading
it holds things you've never been able to
get in a trunk before.
Yet, generously endowed as this car is
with spaciousness and clean-etched ele-
gance, it holds steadfastly to all the thrifty,
dependable virtues Chevrolet buyers have
come to take for granted. Your dealer's
the man to see for all the details.
