Canham Leaves Sprinter Burnley Home


While Don Canham flew off to
Coral Gables, Fla., with his Big
Ten co-championship track team
last night, the man who gave
Michigan a share of the title stay-
ed home.
Ken Burnley, the junior from
Detroit who earned the Wolverines
an extra two points when movies
of the conference meet showed he
had placed fourth in the 60-yd.
dash, is ailing again.
Burnley has been off training
ever since he pulled a right thigh
muscle in that race, and although
he is working outdoors now, Can-
ham doesn't want to take any
chances by running him in com-
Outdoor Workouts
For the rest of the team, meets
with Miami and Illinois over the
week-and-a-half vacation period
will offer a good chance for out-
door workouts.
For a few members of the trav-
eling squad, however, Canham will
be watching their performances
with his fingers crossed.
The most notable is Mac Hunt-
er, the junior sprinter from Mus-
kegon Heights who a year ago on

this trip put himself out of action
for the rest of the spring.
Hunter Pulls Muscle
Hunter had warmed up to wind-
aided times of :20.3 in the
straightaway 220 and :09.5 in the
100 under the Miami sun last
April before he pulled a leg muscle
on the team's last day of compe-
So far this year Hunter has
avoided the leg problems which
have plagued him ever since his
freshman year. He had trouble
with his side just before the Big
Ten meet and eventually placed
fourth in the 300-yd. dash after
drawing the inside lane.
The lane assignment cost Hunt-
er points, according to Canham,
since there is less running room
to take the turns.
Canham hopes to be able to use
Hunter as well as Burnley in the
100 and 220 in the Big Ten meet
next month.
Anniversary for Vaulters
Steve Overton and George Wade,
Canham's two pole vaulters, will
be trying to make this year's trip
as good as last year's, when both
cleared their all-time best heights.
Overton, a senior from Koko-

mo, Ind., vaulted 1417" and 14'4"
down South last spring, but since
then has had all sorts of trou-
bles, failing to clear 14' and going
unplaced in the last two Big Ten
Wade has placed fifth in both
of the last two conference meets,
but the Union, N.J., junior has not
matched his vault of 14'4" on last
year's spring trip.
Meet Miami, Illinois
Others who will be making the
trip to meet Miami on Saturday,
Miami and Illinois a week from

Saturday, and maybe both teams
again in a relay meet the fol-
lowing Tuesday:
George Puce, Ernst Soudek and
Roger Schmitt (shot put and dis-
cus); Cliff Nuttall, Joe Mason and
Talt Malone (hurdles); Al Am-
merman (high jump); Tom Swee-
ney (broad jump); Kent Bernard,
Carter Reese and Dave Romain
(440); Dorr Casto, Ted Kelly, Dan
Hughes and Charlie Aquino
(880); Des Ryan, Dave Hayes and
Jim Neahusan (mile); and Chris
Murray (two-mile).

Spring Tr
Baseball St
Coach Moby Benedict, who feels
that competition for positions
brings out the best in a team,
has an ideal situation this spring.
Despite the fact that only one.
starter graduated from last year's
world championship team, all but
two positions are up for grabs.
These two positions are second
base and shortstop, where last
year's great double-play combina-
tion of Joe Jones and Dick Honig
are solidly entrenched.,
Positions Open

One place Michigan won't' be
hurting in 1963-64 is Trampoline,
where sophomores Gary Erwin and
Fred Sanders, one-two in the na-
tionals, will be back. Another soph,
John Hamilton, who finished
fourth in the Big Ten but did not
qualify in the NCAA's, will ac-
company them.
Although Larose and Spicer will
be leaving the floor exercise ranks,
sophomore Mike Henderson, who
tied for the national crown in
this event, remains. He'll be as-
sisted by John Salmela, a fresh-
man who has shown a strong ap-
titude in floor ex.
Where tumbling is concerned,
Henderson and Phil Bolton, a jun-
ior, return to spearhead the corps
in this department. Hamilton, who
came on with a rush late this sea-
son, could also be an important
factor on the tumbling mat.
p To Decide
tarting Posts


The positions are so open that
Benedict .said, "It's possible that
I might platoon right-handed.
iitters against left-handed pitch-
ing and vice versa." This is most
possible in the outfield where of
the five major contenders for the
three positions, Benedict has three
righthanders and two lefties.
The improvement in the field-
ing of the outfield pleases Bene-
dict. He -feels that fielding is one
of .the most important aspects of
the game. "The boys have been
working real hard, and through
this hard work have improved,"
commented Benedict.
"Naturally, there is room for im-
provement, but when you decide
that there isn't any way to get
better, it's tine to take up an-
other game." He cited Jim New-
man as the fastest of the out-
fielders with the best all-around
arm. He quickly added, "Both Tate
and Steckley have great hands,
and when they get to a ball, you
know its going to be caught."
Strong Infield
The fielding in the infield is a
major strong-point on a team
which according to the coach,
"Has no real weak spot." Aside
from the combination of Jones
and Honig, the infield positions
are contested for mainly by letter-
-men Harvey Chapman and Dave
Campbell,and sophomore George
Skaff. Campbell is a fine fielding
first baseman, and Chapman is
equally adept at the hot corner.
Skaff is working out at both
first and third bases and has
shown proficiency at both,, posi-

tions. It is probable that he will
make a great contribution to the
team, spelling both Chapman and
Campbell, if he doesn't work his
way into the starting lineup.
Wide Open
The catching situation is prob-
ably the most wide-open affair of
all. With the graduation of last
year's starter, Joe Merullo, the
responsibility for the catching
chore lies with two sophomores
who by chance, not relation, have
the same last name. These are
Chuck and Pete Adams.
"The boys are about even now
as far as the job goes," Benedict.
said. "Pete's probably shown more
with the bat but Charlie is a fine
receiver with great hustle and
determination. They'll both con-
tribute heavily to the team this
Pleasant Spots
There have been quite a few
pleasant spots for the coach so
far this spring. Among these would
be the fine hitting of Spalla and
Tate. Although the boys have been
primarily indoors, and haven't
faced game competition as of yet,
Benedict has been very impressed
by the way these two outfielders
have been hitting the ball.
The only disappointment in the
hitting department has been the
slow start of last year's leading
hitter, Harvey Chapman. However,
Benedict wasn't worried yet and
commented, "Harvey has a fine,
free, natural swing and it'sonly
a matter of time before he starts
hitting the ball on the nose again."
