Graduation Losses, Dropouts
WeakenWarmath's Gophers

Canham Predicts Track Federation Succe

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is another
in a series of articles analyzing the
upcoming Big Ten football season.
Today's article concerns Minnesota's
outlook for the season).
Minnesota's Murray Warmath,
who has guided his team to 22 vic-
tories and one tie in 29 games
over the past three years, faces the
greatest rebuilding task of his
coaching career.
His Golden Gophers have been
hit by the graduation of 24 letter-"
men, 10 of them 1962 starters. His
hopes have also been dimmed by
the desertion of promising sopho-

The United States Track and
Field Federation spent a quiet
summer making friends, solidify-
ing gains and slowly but surely
shoving the AAU out of the driv-
er's seat in track and field.
Or at least that's the feeling
of Don Canham, Michigan's track
esach and an outspoken leader of
the federation movement, gives in
summing up the federation's sum-
mer activities.
Bound by the MacArthur agree-
ment to start no outright control
fights with the AAU until Novem-
ber, 1964, the USTFF has thrived
on the interim of quiet until the
1964 Olympics are safely past.
Gains Internationally
Even in the only section of track
and field of which the AAU can
claim control now-international
track relations-the federation,
according to Canham, is benefit-
"We are hurting the AAU be-
cause we don't have to pay their
$10 to $25 membership fee any-
more, and we don't have to pay
the $1 to $2 fee to enter their
meets," he says. Canham had spe-
cific reference to the AAU meet in
St. Louis last June, which quali-
fied members for the American
track team for the U.S.-USSR
meet at Moscow. None of the
members of the USTFF present
had to belong to the AAU also.
Locally the federation ran four
state meets *ithout any AAU in-
terference. Canham plans to have
six to eight meets in Ann Arbor
next summer since this summer's
meets met with great success.

GOPHER STALWART--Minnesota senior tackle Carl Eller is
expected to be the strong man on the Gopher's forward wall this
year. Eller's play last year was overshadowed by that of teammate
and All-American tackle Bobby Bell, although they were consider-
ed to be the best pair of college tackles in the nation. Eller, at
6'5/" and 241 pounds, is surprisingly agile, and it is thought
that he will follow Bell to the top of the ladder in tackle play.

most of the positionsare settled
with sophomores holding down
several first string berths.
The first-string end spots are
being held by sophomores Bob
Bruggers and John Rajala. Brug-
gers is also expected to do some
of the punting for the Gophers.
At guard, lettermen Willie Cos-
tanza and Larry Hartse have an
edge, "but Hartse is injury prone."
Behind them are Charlie Killian
and Bill Dallman. Lettermen
Frank Marchlewski and Joe Pung
hold down the center spot.
This season's starting backfield
will include sophomores Fred
Farthing and high school All-
American Dick Harren at halfback,
Bob Sadek at quarterback, and

our fast, light backs.

speed and deception."

Press, Publicity Okay
Concerning public and press re-
lations after the summer, Canham
is also satisfied.
"If you do your job, your public
image isn't important. All college
and high school athletes know
they're getting more competition
now than ever before. During the
summer we ran more meets than
the AAU."
With 448,934 athletes participat-
