Franklin C. Czppon, Assistant
Athletic Director of the University
of Michigan, has been appointed
head basketball coach for next sea-
son to succeed George Veenker, it
was announced yesterday by the
Board in Control of Athletics. Cap-
pon has been serving in the capa-
city of assistant coach of the cage
sport for the past several years.
At the same time it was announc-
ed that Bennie G. Oosterbaan; who
also has been acting as one of the
basketball tutors, has been named
first assistant to Cappon.
Another event of importance that
transpired at the Board in Control
meeting was the appointment of
Harry Kipke, head football coach,
to the position of a general coach.
That means that Kipke will assist
in basketball and perhaps in some
other sport when he is not direct-
ing the activities of the gridmen.
One new mentor was added to
the list of Michigan coaches when
Wally Weber, former Wolverine i
athlete, was signed to serve as a(
general coach here next-fall. Webe:
will first be assigned to helping get
the grid team into condition, but
the capacity in which he will serveI
later on has not yet been decided.
Webdr has been serving in recent'
years as a coach at Benton Harbor'
High school where he was turned

The necessity of a new cage coach
came about when George Veenker,
last year's mentor, accepted the po-
,ition as head football coach ata
Iowa State next season. Veenker
has for several years been trying
to get a position as gridiron direc-
tor at some institution, and when'
the chance came this fall he took
it immediately, although he regret-
ed leaving Michigan to take the
