MAN in ) lotrn

The Contenders
BEFORE THIS year's spring practice got under way, Bump Elliott
said that the search for a quarterback would be his number one
In this Saturday's closing scrimmage, Elliott will get a chance
to show Michigan football fans how well that problem has been
solved in the past four weeks of drill. Or perhaps more accurately, five
candidates for the signal-calling post will each be attempting to prove
to Elliott and to the goodly crowd that annually gathers for the Blue-
White game that he alone is the answer to that problem.
Vying for the first-string job are letterwinners, John Stamos and
Don Hannah, and freshman hopefuls, Bob Chandler, Dave Glinka and
Mike Westley.
"In spring practice, we're not trying to line up the number one,
two and three men for a position, we're just looking for faults. Then
we can work on those faults in the fall," says the Wolverine coach.
DESPITE ELLIOTT'S having said this, you can be sure that all five
signal-callers will be under careful scrutiny in Saturday's game,
and a top-notch showing by any one of them could be a big step
toward nailing down the starting slot for the September 24th opener
with Oregon here.'
The last two spring practices have seen the fall quarterbacking
duties partially secured (although generally over fewer serious con-
tenders), and all five will have this in mind Saturday.
In the 1958 contest, Bob Ptacek (a converted halfback) handled
his new chores skillfully enough to nail down a quarterback job for
the fall season.
And just last year, Stan Noskin registered the finaltwo touch-
downs in the final quarter to lead a come-from-behind White victory
as he secured the berth as Ptacek's successor.
Saturday's game could give some indication of who will step into
Noskin's shoes for the '60 campaign. And, weather permitting, the
throwing arms won't be spared. "There will be a lot of passing," says

nd the odds.. .

WJH AT ARE each hopeful's chances of stepping into the spot vacated
by Noskin? Well, if you're a person inclined toward placing an
occasional bet, you wouldn't go far astray with this as a dope sheet:
John Stamos: even money
Dave Glinka: 2-1
Bob Chandler: 2-1
Don Hannah: 3-1
Mike Westley: darkhorse.
Commenting on each, Elliott has this to say: "Stamos has more
experience with the team than any of the others. He's fine on defense
too. There's no question that he is a leading contender. Glinka has
more running ability than most of the others and can throw well. Both
he and Chandler need experience in running the ball club. Chandler
can throw well and has done a good job in running the team.
"Hannah has improved a lot in practice this spring. And you can't
discount his experience. Westley's passing is only fair. He's good on
running pass plays and can run well himself. He's also an aggressive
Elliott is reluctant to even give a tenative ranking to this quintet
of quarterback hopefuls. "It's hard to rate any of them ahead of the
others, but if only on experience, I'd have to say that John (Stamos)
has the edge. On offense he's the best of the five-for the moment that
is. But you can't be sure, one day one looks better than the others and
the next day it's just the opposite."
Saturday's Stadium crowd will get a chance to make its own judge-
ment as Stamos attempts to keep his nose ahead of the pack in the
last big race before King Football's Fall Sweepstakes.

CHICAGO (/P)-With the Na-
tionalLeague season only 23 days
old, the Chicago Cubs yesterday
had Charlie Grimm swap jobs as
club manager with Lou Boudreau,
a baseball commentator and for-
mer American League manager.
The switch was announced just
after left-handed rookie Dick Ells-
worth, up only two days from
Houston, hurled a 5-hitter against
the league - leading Pittsburgh
Pirates for a 5-2 victory.
For Grimm, 62, it was the short-
est term of his three different
stints as manager of the Cubs.
Boudreau, 42, last managed the
Kansas City A's. He was replaced
by Harry Craft in 1957.
Both Grimm and Boudreau pro-
fessed to be surprised at the not
entirely unexpected change or-
dered by Cub President P. K.
Wrigley. The Cubs had lost 11 of
their first 16 games and consider-
able criticism had been directed
at Grimm's handling of the team.
MIajor League

Grimm, who will now become a
radio sports commentator for Chi-
cago Cub games, said he and
Wrigley "are very, very good
friends. Our friendship is so
strong, Mr. Wrigley didn't want
me to take the beating he thought
I wasltaking for the showing of
the club."
Grimm, who still remains a Cub
vice-president, said that actually
his health was not affected.
"Hell, we just weren't winning,"
said Grimm. "I'm not taking a
rap for anything."
Boudreau, who lives in Harvey,
Ill., a suburb of Chicago, said:
"It's a great thrill to be managing
in your own home town."

By Saturday night, Coach Bill
Murphy will have a good idea of
just how close his Michigan tennis
team will come to duplicating last
season's Big Ten championship.
The Wolverines have three
matches in the next three days,
facing Western Michigan today,
Illinois tomorrow, and Wisconsin
Because of poor weather, the
squad has completed only six
singles and one doubles match in
competition since spring vacation.
A dual meet with the University
of Detroit was rained out two
weeks ago as was most of. the
scheduled quadrangular meet of
last week end involving Ohio
State, Indiana, and Ohio Wes-
leyan. Against Wesleyan, the team
won all six singles and the lone
completed doubles match.
Illini Strong
The Illinois meet is of particu-
lar interest since the Illini have
always had strong teams in the
past and figure to be tough again
this year.
Murphy intends to go with the
same lineup he used against Wes-
leyan. Junior Gerry Dubie will
play at number one singles.
Seniors Frank Fulton and John
Wiley will play at second and
third singles respectively and
sophomores Jim Tenney and Ken
Mike will play at four and five

in that order. Junior Bruce Mac-
Donald will play at number six.
Duble and Mike will team for
first doubles, Wiley and Fulton for
second. MacDonald and Tenney
will combine for number three
doubles. Wiley and Fulton won
the Big Ten number three doubles
last spring.
All of the matches start at 2:15
p.m. and are played at Varsity
Tennis Courts which is located zo
the immediate west of the I-M
Building. Admission is free.





The. I-M golf tournaments will
be played on Saturday, May 14th,
with play starting at 7 a.m
Team managers are urged to
get their entries in as soon as
possible in order to get good
choices of playing time.
The 16 best scores, taken from
all divisions, will be eligible for
the All-Campus tournament to be
played on Tuesday, May 17th. The
golfers will play 18 holes andthis
score will be combined with their
18 hole divisional scores to decide
the winner.
In the all-campus rifle shooting
championships the individual win-
ner was Duane Thomas with a
score of 197 out of 200. The team
winner was Goinberg with a score
of 763 out of 800.
