Hyman s Health
Much Improved

Hunter Re-Pulls Leg Muscle

Special To The Daily
gymnast Lew Hyman made his
most encouraging sign of recovery
yesterday when he emerged from
the coma he has been in since
March 31 after undergoing a four-
hour brain operation.
He was out of bed briefly Sun--
day and has been able to feed
himself and respond, to requests
to move various parts of his body.
Hyman has been unable to speak
thus far, however, and his right
side remains partially weakened.
Medics Hopeful
Doctors are hopeful that he may
soon regain speech. They cite the
almost miraculous recovery thus
far as' a result of Hyman's opti-

mum physical condition at the
time of his accident.
Until recently he had been fed
intravenously, had breathed
through a tube in his trachea, and
had been kept literally in ice
Over Two Weeks
Hyman had been in a coma
following his accident on the
Trampoline in the finals of the
NCAA gymnastics meet. He was
performing the last trick of his
routine when he suddenly veered
off to the side and fell 30 feet to
the gymnasium floor.
Hyman's parents maintain their
bedside vigil which started the
night following his accident.

For Mac Hunter, Michigan's
spring vacation lasted one day too
The slim sprinter from Muske-
gon Heights went with the rest of
Coach Doan Canham's track team
for a week in Miami, Fla., to test
his ailing legs at the dashes in
the warm air.
Everything went fine in the first
meet two weekends ago, but Sat-
urday Hunter pulled up lame in
a 100-yd. dash during a triangular
meet with Miami and Florida to
explode any hopes Canham may
have had of using him in the
sprints this spring.
Hunter has had a history of
pulled muscles in both legs since
the Michigan Open in his fresh-
man year last spring. He re-in-
jured his legs sprinting indoors

Spring Football Practice Starts,

Coach Bump Elliot will greet 19
returning veterans from last year's,
40 man squad when spring prac-
tice begins today for a three week
The Wolverines lost three full-
backs, three centers, two starting
ends and a pair of right tackles
and the starting right guard and
left halfback. The filling of these
gaps will be the main concern of
the coaching staff in the hard
workouts ahead.
Many of next year's starters are.
occupied with spring sports and
will miss practice which compli-
cates the situation. Dave Raimey
and Roger Schmitt are out for
track. Occupied with baseball are
Eddie Hood, Harvey Chapman and
Ron Lauterbach.
The Injured Return
Counted on heavily will be the
injured veterans and proven per-
formers who saw little action last
season. Lou Pavloff, Joe O'Donnell,
Deb Nolan and Larry Piotrowski
will return to seek starting line
positions while a healthy Jack
Strobel will be out trying for a
left halfback position.
Despite their losses Coach Elliot
is hoping for a bright future, al-
though with some reserve. The
fine freshman team of last season
will be counted on to fill many
line positions left by the grad-
uated starters.

The mention of the quarterback
slot will bring smiles to the faces
of the coaching staff. Veteran
and two year starter Dave Glinka
is back with lettermen Bob Chand-
ler and Tom Prichard. Forest
Evashevski, a fine sophomore pros-
pect before a knee injury sidelined
him is ready to go also. Bob Tim-
berlake a 6'3" 212 lb. sophomore
is also competing for the starting
Shifted to Fullback
Bruce McLenna, a halfback last
season may be shifted to fullback.
Jim Ward is the only experienced
player at that position and averag-
ed 4.3 yards, in ten carries last
Among the sophomores, Arnie
Simkus, a 232 lb. tackle is a prime
prospect. Joe O'Donnell may be

shifted from guard where he
started last season, to tackle to
strengthen that position.
John Minko and Pavloff lead
the returning guards and will be
backed up by lettermen Dave
Kurtz, Deb Nolan, Dick Sxyman-
ski and John Marcum, who was
injured early last season.
The sophomore guards look cap-
able. Dave Butler and Maurice
Poaletti are both rugged 5'11" 205
pounders, while Rich Hahn a 5'11"
200 pounder from Ohio is also a
fine prospect.
No letterman beside Pavloff is
available at center. Top candidate
is Bill Muir, a 205 lb. reserve last
year. New talent looms in 190 lb.
Jim Green, Brian Patchen, a hefty
205 lbs., and 6'3" 210 lb. Dave

in January, and Canham had
moved him up to the 440 and 600
to relieve the strain on his legs.
No More Sprints
Now Canham sees no other al-
ternative but to keep him in the
longer races the rest of this year.
But he pointed out that Hunter
probably won't be ready to run
in the Ohio Relays at Columbus
this Saturday.
Canham referred a bit wistfully
to the wind-aided times Hunter
had turned in the previous Satur-
day in a meet with Furman, Mi-
ami and Brown.
Hunter hit :09.5 to win the 100
and :20.3 to take the 220, but As-
sistant Coach Elmer Swanson ex-
plained that the times could be
suspect because of poor judging
visability at the finish line.
The Wolverines won both meets
by lopsided margins, and some of
their performances were enough
to make them want to stay in the
Vaulters Top 14'
Pole vaulters Rod Denhart,
Steve Overton and George Wade
all hit their best marks and slam-
med the event one-two-three in
both meets.
-M' Sailors
Win Honors
The U-M sailing team took first
place at the Ohio State Invita-
tional Regatta last weekend and
placed third at Annapolis the pre-
vious weekend.
At Ohio State, skipper John
Goldsmith, assisted by Eric White,
took the high point award in A
division to lead Michigan into first
place with 218 points over Boston
College's 214 and Wisconsin's 210
points. Norm Rabe, assisted by
Paul O'Reilly, sailed B division and
won the last, deciding race in the
Twelve schools competed for the
Columbus Star trophy at Leather-
lips Yacht Club in Ohio. The rac-
ers, sailing Penguins, battled heavy
air and snow.
A disqualification in the final
round sent the Michigan team
from first to third place at the
Navy Regatta at Annapolis. Sail-
ing Gannets, Timme Schnieder
and John Goldsmith raced A and
B divisions assisted by Jim King,
Bob Buhler and Lee Jeffries.
This weekend the U-M sailors
hold the invitational Cary-Price
memorial regatta for nine .mid-
west schools. Wooster College, Uni-
versity of Detroit, Ohio State, Wis-
consin, Notre Dame, Marquette and
Wayne State Universities will com-
Pete on Base Line Lake in Jet

Rain Spoils
Spring Trip
For Golfers
The Michigan golf team will en-
ter its first northern meet of the
season with an undefeated record.
The southern trip was. rained
out. That is, the two sched1uled
matches in North Carolina were
rained out. The team still managed
to play a little practice golf.
The Wolverines played 72 holes
at Pine Needles before moving on
to Pinehurst where they were
scheduled to oppose Duke. Al-
though the weather cancelled the
Duke meet Michigan still man-
aged to get in 36 holes. The last
stop for the team was Chapel Hill
where they got in 18 more holes.
The Wolverine linksters left
North Carolina for Ann Arbor on
Wednesday afternoon.
100 Per Cent Improvement
According to Michigan captain
Bill Newcomb the team showed
100 per cent improvement while
in the southland. "After 72 holes
at Pine Needles the first five men
were only five strokes apart and
I think this is a very good indi-
cation," said the Michigan cap-
tain, "of course it would have been
a lot better if we could have had
some competition."
The Wolverines will travel to
Columbus this weekend where they
will get their first taste of Big
Ten competition.
