[ureaud's Past Marked by Change;
switch to Half Proves Rewarding

Gomberg Wins in Track;
ZBT Captures Grid Tilt

By CLIFF MARKS
Switching from halfback to full-
back to halfback again was final-
ly rewarded for Ken Tureaud last
sophomore scored the touchdown
which put Michigan ahead to stay
against Oregon State.
As the game turned out, Tur-
eaud's touchdown provided a spark
in the Michigan attack as the
winners added another to pad
their lead.,
"The boys told me'they were go-
ing to open the hole," said Tureaud
of his deciding marker, "and fol-
lowing their outstanding blocking,
I went over..A back is only as
good a$ his line," he added.
Switches Around
The switching aroun of this,
modest "Romper" all started back
in high school when he played on
the same team as Don Horn, at
present a fullback stalwart for
Iowa.
The two fullbacks-by-trade
played together for two years at
Cathedral Central High School in
Detroit, thus Tureaud played half-
back his freshman and sophomore
years.
Then, when Horn graduated,
the rugged Detroiter stepped in as
fullback for a team that was run-
ner-up three years in a row for
the Central Division crown.
When he got to Michigan, Tur-

eaud continued in his then familiar
fullback slot, both as a freshman,
and in his first two games on the
varsity.
"One day last week before prac-
tice, the coaches came in and said
that I would be running at left
half," he said. "I only had three
or four days to familiarize myself
with the position." He learned real
quick as evidenced by his showing
Saturday.-
Tureaud also added that the
probable reason for the change
"was because of all the backfield
injuries suffered in the Michigan
State contest.
Had Been Second Fullback
Before the switch, Tureaud had
been playing second string full-
back behind Tony Rio but now is
placed in an entirely different role
on the "Rompers" or "Go" team,
the second offensive unit in Coach
Bump Elliott's three platoon sys-
tem.
Managers Needed
The Athletic Department
along with the present football
managers have put in a plea for
additional managers to help
out. Contact John Jabe at prac-
tice if interested..

"I, as well as the other boys, like
the three team system," Tureaud
r e m a r k e d, obviously thinking
ahead to Saturday's game against
Northwestern, the second-ranked
team in the nation.
"Knowing that we'll be pla-
tooned provides an incentive for
us to play better and also makes
the game more exciting from the
spectator's point of view," he con-
tinued.
New 'M' System
Elliott had previously remarked
that the new system, involving the
"White," "Rompers," and "Raid-
ers" teams, worked well in its first
trial Saturday and would be used
again. He echoed his new half-
back's statement about incentive.
"It makes the boys go all out to
show each other that theirs is the
best team."
In referring to Tureaud himself,
the coach said, "He's willing, and
a hard worker. He made the switch
real well and did an excellent job*
for us Saturday."
"I could have played a lot bet-
ter against Oregon State," Tureaud
disagreed. "However, as it turned
out, everything worked out for the
good of the team as well as my-
self."
Although Tureaud played down

his showing a bit in the Oregon
State contest, Elliott was not fin-
ished with his praise. "Ken's a
fine boy to work with and a good
running back. He's getting better
every week and we can only hope
he'll continue to improve at the
same rate."
The topic of injuries and North-
western came up again and Tur-
eaud, hearing that sophomore
quartbrback Bob Eichoff, a star
last week, along with speedster
Ron Burton may not play Satur-
day, said, "Northwestern's going
to be tough no matter how many
injuries they have. They're num-
ber two in the country this week."
Sophomore Relaxes
These words were spoken as the
sophomore halfback relaxed be-
fore his locker after a semi-long
contact drill designed to toughen
up the Wolverines for the invad-
ing Wildcats.
"We'lldcertainly be in there
fighting to win Saturday and with
our three teams competing against
one another it'll sure be some-
thing to watch out for."
So spoke Ken Tureaud, left half-
back on the "Rompers," and Wol-
verine rooters hope, along with
Coach Elliott, that he will con-
tinue to get better in future games
with his switching days behind
him.

Perennial powerhouse Gomberg
Jumped into the driver's seat with
a second and a third in the open-
ing event and grimly stood off a
spirited challenge from Taylor
house to win the Residence Halls
Outdoor Track championship yes-1
terday afternoon.
The "Big Red" finished with
25%/ points, just over a point in
front of Taylor with 24%, then
came Kelsey, Hinsdale, Scott,]
Adams and Allen-Rumsey bunched
in the top 8.
The winners grabbed their only7
first in the 880-yard dash, but,
placed in all but three of the]
events to pile up their winning to-t
tal.

The track meet stole the I-M
show yesterday but there were
some very important Social Fra-
ternity "A" football games.
Zeta Beta Tau moved into the
first place playoffs with a decisive
12-2 upset win over Phi Delta
Theta. Arnie Rubenstein pitched
and Harley Kripke caught for
both of ZBT's scores.
Another keygamersaw Phi Sig-
ma Delta move into the first place

playoffs also as they upset Sigma
Chi 6-0 on a 35-yd. pass from Gil
Asher to Carter Ross.
Chi Psi Wons
Chi Psi tripped up Tau Epsilon
Phi also 6-0 as Don Bimar passed
to Price Holts for the only touch-
down of the contest.
Other games saw Phi Kappa Psi
edge Delta Kappa Epsilon 8-0,
Acacia whip Theta Xi 12-6 as
Dennis Berry and John Waldner
scored for the winners, Phi Kappa
Tau edge Alpha Kappa Lambda
1-0 in a thrilling overtime, Sigma
Alpha Mu beat Alpha Epsilon Pi
12-6, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon
trounce Kappa Sigma 28-0.
There were also some "B" games
last night which saw SAM wal-
lop Acacia 22-0 as Arnie Frumin
scored twice, Tau Kappa Epsilon
win over Sigma Coi 21-0, Phi
Gamma Delta defeat Trigon 12-0,
and Delta Chi roll over Alpha Del-
ta Phi 20-0. The Phi Delts game
with Chi Psi was postponed due
to rush, and Lambda Chi Alpha
won by forfeit over Sigma Phi,
which has no "B" team.
It was learned from the games
that officials are needed at $1.50
per game and those interested
should see Ron Thompson.

By The Associated Press
BEVERLY HILLS-Lamar Hunt
of Dallas, an organizer of the
American Professional Football
League, said yesterday a commit-
tee is still working toward the ap-
pointment of a commissioner.
Hunt declined comment on
speculation that Fritz Crisler, Ath-
letic Director at the University, is
one of the main possibilities for
the position. He said he has no
appointment with Crisler.
Earlier this month, Crisler
FCOEDS.

THE DASCOLA BARBERS

would not deny that he had dis-
cussed the matter with Hunt or
H. P. Skoglund of Minneapolis.
"All I can say is that my feel-
ings have been sounded out," Cris-
ler said at that time. "I under-
stand that my name-is in the hop-
per. I have been noncommital,
and still am."
harper Tied for Punting
Jack Collins of Texas is the top
punter in the nation officially with
an average of 49.1 yards per kick,
but Michigan's Darrell Harper has
exactly the same average for sev-
en punts. Apparently, Harper has
not kicked enough times to be con-
sidered as the nation's leader.
Basketball Starts
Ed Klum, assistant basket-
ball coach, has announced that
all candidates foreither fresh-
men or varsity basketball
should report to the Intramural
Building at 3:30 Thursday for
the start of practice.

DO YOU BLAME ME? When I saw oxford cloth but. -I managed to keep head and shoulders together as I
ton-downs and English tqbs in solid colors and stripes looked at shirts, charcoal grey worsted slacks for
for just $3.75, I couldn't control myself. These were $8.75, and a Bar-Cat jacket (with pile lining) for just
the same high quality shirts that I'd always paid $5.50 $10.75. THEN . . . I saw the bulky knit and shaggy
for, and now I could buy 3 for what 2 usually cost, sweaters. That did it! I flipped my lid over a cardigan
tennis sweater for $14.75. I had seen the same sweater
all over for $20.
