The Democratic candidate for City Council in the 2nd Ward was the
instigator of a rezoning plan which would have had the following ef-
fects on the heavily student populated area of Elm, Linden, Walnut
and Geddes:
1. Could have eliminated rooming houses in the area
2. Would have made almost all properties in the area non-
conforming which legally prevents an owner from main-
taining his pro--erty to prolong its life, thus resulting in
a decaying neighborhood.
3. Would have decreased the number of students that could
inhabit a dwelling.
4. Could have resulted in higher rents due to decrease or
scarcity in student housing.
This irresponsible rezoning action was little understood when passed at
first reading of Council, but it was unanimously defeated by Council
when brought up for final resolution.
We the Citizens of Tenbrook, representing tenants and residents of
the area, urge that anyone concerned with housing or the future of our
city, vote for responsible persons who advocate sound programs not

Centerfield is covered by Leon
Roberts, junior from Portage Nor-
thern, who hit .400 over the Ari-
zona trip. During that week, he
drove in 11 runs,!had 14 hits, and
had 25 total bases.
Rightfield belongs to sophomore
Mike DeCou who won the starting
job last season with some hard
work. DeCou batted .279 to take
the spot.
.The right side of the infield is
also very strong. First baseman
Pat Sullivan led the squad last
season with 26 rbi's. Over the
western swing, Sullivan stung op-
posing pitchers at a .387 clip.
Second base is occupied by jun-
ior Jim Kocoloski, a consistent
player and hitter. Though he bat-
ted eighth last year. Kocoloski
still hit .306 which is good in any-
body's book.
He may have some competition,
though, from Brian Balaxe, a
I Birmingham junior, who led the
Wolverines in hitting over the
spring trip with a .500 average.
Benedict may have a problem
in choosing his backstop. Sopho-
more John Lonchar, coming off
a bad season last year, hit .381 in
Arizona and seems to be the lead-
ing candidate for the catcher's
job. Close on his heels, however,
are senior Mulhill and promising
freshman Rick Seid, from Oak
Park.
Overall, as the wise old philoso-
pher said before becoming a man-
ager". "If you don't score the runs,
you can't expect to win." This
holds true for the Wolverines this
season.

WITH THE LOSS of part of their fine corps of hurlers to gradu-
ation, the 1972 diamondsmen will depend on its hitting this year.
However, with the completion of the Arizona spring tour, the
teams hitting ability still remains a big question mark.
