.eRae Heads 'M' Picks in NFL

By The Associated Press

Five Michigan football players
were selected in the first eleven
rounds of the National Football
League draft yesterday and Syra-
cuse's All-American halfback Ernie
t Davis, 1961 Heisman Trophy win-
ner became the first Negro ever
drafted by the Washington Red-
Halfback Bennie McRae was
picked by Chicago in the second
round. In the fifth round, fullback
Bill Tunnicliff was also drafted
by Chicago, and Green Bay select-
ed tackle Jon Schopf. Defensive
back Ken Tureaud became the
choice of Dallas in the eighth
round. The Detroit Lions took cen-
ter Todd Grant in the ninth round.
Davis, who was picked by the
Buffalo Bills in the American
Football League draft Saturday,.
was undecided about which team
he would sign with. "I want good
money, sure, but I also want hap-
piness and a guarantee of a fu-
ture," he said. "I want to be able
to do something constructive in

the off-season so 10 or 15 years
from now I can step out of pro
football and into business."
Last week Harry Wismer, owner
of the Titans, said he was willing
to offer Davis a $100,000 three-
year, no-cut contract plus a $25,-
00 bonus for signing. Since then,
Wismer has said he doesn't expect
to land the Syracuse star.
Redskin owner George P. Mar-
shall and Cleveland Coach Paul
Brown denied rumors that Davis
would be traded to the Browns in
exchange for established veteran
Bobby Mitchell and first-round
draft pick, end Gary Collins of
The expected war of player sign-
ing between the long-established
National League and the two-year-
old American League got under
way scarcely before the NFL's first
round of drafting ended.
Outside of Davis, the most highly
sought after player was two-time
All-American fullback Bob Fer-
guson of Ohio State. Sid Gilman
of the San Diego Chargers of the

AFL reportedly was in Columbus,
Ohio, yesterday trying to sign
The Steelers of the NFL, who
drafted Ferguson in the first
round yesterday, planned to send
a representative to confer with
Ferguson last night as soon as
they learned of Gilman's trip.
Officials of the 14 NFL clubs
took seven hours to complete the
first four rounds of the draft.
Causing delays were attempts
to reach player choices before
drafting them to see if they were
available and determine their mil-
itary status more clearly. This be-
came more necessary than at any
other time in the post-war period
because of the stepped-up induc-
tion of reservists.

With a Big Ten title in one
pocket, a group of promising soph-
omores in the other and the favor-
ite's role in the race for the con-
ference crown -this year planted
firmly on his shoulders, Coach
Newt Loken eyes the forthicoming
'gymnastics season with a twinge
of expectation, apprehension and
The expectation hinges on the
performances of his sophomore
starters and letter-winning juniors
whom he counts on to live up to
the potential they have demon-
strated in the past season and in
early workouts this winter.
Montpetit Gone
Apprehension enters the picture
because of the loss of such a fine
performer, instructor and leader
as Olympian and conference all-
round champion Rich Montpetit,
along with the departure of Jim
Brown, NCAA tumbling champ in
his junior year and a mainstay of
the squad.
Hope 'is what Loken has the
most of. The hope is that his boys
will remain injury-free and, that
flne individual performances can
offset the lack of depth at key
positions which kept him and his,
team in such goo,d contention for
conference and national honors in
the last campaign.
New Leaders.
What the team .amounts to this
season will depend a great deal
upon the performances of juniors
Gil LaRose and Jim Hynds, who
must fill the shoes of champion
Montpetit in the all-round events.
LaRose in last year's Big Ten
meet finished fourth in the high
bar and 'ffth in the free exercise.
In the Midwest Open Meet in Chi-
cago last week, against some of the
top performers in the country, he.
was one of the standouts. He fin-

by taking third place in the Mid-

A highly regarded pair of sopho-
mores, Louis ;Hyman and Arno
Lascari from Brooklyn and Buf-
falo, respectively, are two "aces in
the hole" for Loken's title con-
tenders. "Hyman turned out to be
the sleeper in the Midwest Meet,
placing third in tumbling and
ninth in rebound tumbling. He had
the other coaches asking ques-
tions," Loken said.
Injury Hurts Chances-
Though Lascari didn't tally
many points in last week's meet,
Loken was high on praise for his
sophomore bright spot. "Lascari
was breezing through an excellent
performance in the all-round when
he injured his shoulder on the still
rings. As a result he couldn't com-
pete in the remaining events and
register a winning point total de-
spite a fine early effort."

"Michigan looks like the team
to beat this year," said Indiana
Coach Otto Ryser, but the Wolver-
ines will face a tough challenge
from a veteran Illinois outfit, run-
ner-up last season after a dozen
years of dominating the sport, and
from a veteran Michigan State

ago and second to.Montpetit in the
last outing. Other top veterans
still around are Mike Aufiecht in
the free exercise and on the side
horse, Bill Lawler on the side horse
and John Salter in the all-round.
The Spartans, with their best
chance for the title in years, field
a squad led by Steve Johnson,
runner-up to Osterland in last
season's Big Ten Meet and second
in both Trampolining and tum-
bling in the Midwest Open this
month. Backing him up is Larry

allel bars champion, and veterans
