Saucheck Receives Appointment as Manager;
William Heston Predicts Morrison
as Coming All-American.
Roy M. Hudson, '32Ed, was named captain of the 1931 Wolver-
ine grid squad last night at the annual Union football banquet, which
was attended by more than 350 students.
Hudson has played two years of Varsity football, one year at
halfback, and one year at fullback. At the end of his freshman year
he was awarded the trophy as the most valuable man in spring prac-
tice. The announcement of Hudson's captaincy was made by this
vear's leader, James (Ducky) Simrall, '31.
John J. Saucheck, '32, was, at the same time, appointed football
manager for next year. As his assistants, Saucheck will have Carl
Sarigeman, '33, Rehn Nelson, '33, Elbert Gage, '33, and Louis Colom-
bo, '33. William Jones, '33, was named alternate.
Judge William Heston, '04L, of Detroit, unanimous choice for
the late Walter Camp's all-time all-American team, was the chief
speaker on the program. He said that Fielding H. Yost, director of
athletics, "has done more for Michigan in the last 30 years than any
other living man during that period."
