Evy Comes Bk..
HEAD COACH and Assistant Ath-
letic Director Forest Evashevski
of Hamilton College hasn't changed
from the guy they used to call Cap-
tain Evy around here.-
The former Wolverine quarter-
back breezed into town yesterday
with the same health, the same
weight and the same amount of
chuckles. He 'wasn't here for long
when he ambled over to the Field
House, shed his nifty Clinton
(N.Y.) fashioned clothes, climbed
into a football suit and reported
for spring practice.
Sadly enough, old Mike hasn't
come back to play again for Michi-
gan. Instead the main purpose of
his visit, which will last about a
week, was to pick up a few more
pointers about football teaching that
he can pour back into his Hamilton
gridders when practice starts there,
April 21.
"Yeh, I've got to keep up with
my men," Evy pointed out. "They're
about six jumps ahead of me
Big Mike then went on to tell
about the way he called his players i
to see him when he first arrived in
Clinton. He informed the captain
of the Hamilton team that he want-
ed to meet all the men, and one
by one they came into the office.
Finally, one day the door swung
open and a husky 210-pound lad
ambled toward the coach's desk.
"Mr. Evashevski, I'm Melzar
Richards of your football team,"
spoke the big fellow.'
Evy rose, shook hands with the
visitor and inquired as to what posi-
tion the boy played.
"I used to be a tackle here, sir,
but I want to change this year," was
the reply.
Old Mike raised his big eyebrow
and asked Melzar Richards why he
wanted to make such a change.
"Well, sir," answered the Hamil-
ton gridder, "tackle is fun to play1
when your team is on the defense.
You have a lot to do then. But,
sir, now that we have the GREAT
EVASHEVSKI here, I figure the
other team will never get the ball."
According to Evy, "I had to come
to Ann Arbor to see what Crisler
would do at a time like that."
The man who blocked for Harmon
is very much impressed with his new
job. "Yeh, I've got an office with
'Coach Evashevski' in big letters on
the door. It's a big door, see, so
they could get it all on."
Evy has a secretary too, but un-
fortunately "they gave me a man.
I guess they thought that was bet-
ter since I am getting married
April 12th. Oh, there are a lot of
things that I have to change
around there yet . . . a man secre-
tary . . . who ever heard of such
a thing?".
At that point, Dave Strong, the
recently appointed head coach at
South Dakota State School of Mines,
came by and challenged Hamilton
to play a football game.
"Why that small time place of
yours," Evy remarked, "we woudn't
play you ping pong."
Strong grunted twice and swore

that his freshman outfit could spot
the Hamilton Varsity two touch-
Practice was over so Michigan's
Forest Evashevski tramped back to
the locker room. He stopped momen-
tarily to gaze into a mirror.
"Say, I read where they might
put me in that picture with Harmon
Can't exactly blame them ...

Soutleir TripI
SixthP Iosition Still Open
As Three Seek Post
One major problem still remains to
be solved before the Michigan tennis,
team starts out on its annual spring
trip. With the first five spots on the
singles list practically settled, Coach
Leroy Weir is still no closer to a solu-
tion of the sixth position problem
than he was when he first issued the
call for candidates some weeks ago.
The Wolverine netters are sched-
uled to meet six strong Southern
opponents in seven days during
Spring Vacation, starting with Wash-
ington and Lee, April 12. Follow-
ing the Generals on the list are
V.M.I., Wake Forest, North Carolina,
Duke and Virginia.
Of the six, only two were faced by
Coach Weir's men last year. The
Wolverines dropped an 8-1 decision
to Duke and fell before the Cavaliers
from Virginia, 5-3.
Barring late changes, Capt. Jim
Tobin will be in the No. 11 spot with
Lawton Hammett, Jim Porter, Wayne
Stille and Tom Gamon respectively
handling the next four places. Com-
peting for the sixth regular post are
Howie Bacon, Bob Brewer and Jim
Bourquin among others. It is no
certainty that any one of the three
will get the job since there are sev-
eral promising sophomores on the
roster. The job is wide open, ac-
cording to Weir.

over at the 175 yard mark.
From then on it was a battle to see
whether Welsh could close up the
lead. His last 20-yard sprint almost

Twenty Michigan freshmgen and
reserve grapplers will wrestle in the
National Junior A.A.U. meet to be
held April 4 and 5 in Detroit. The
Wolverines have all been entered in
the unattached class.

varsity lettermen has been entered
in the meet. Sophomore Ray Deane,
who won six matches and lost but
two this season, will compete in the

Collegiate or Junior A.A.U. title.

Jim Welsh, Matt Mann's star
distance swimmer, lost two close
races as the Wolverines opened their
defense of the National Collegi-
ate championship. Jim was out-
touched in the 1,500 meter free style
event and later was nosed out in
the'220-yard free style race.,

Fisher's Fielders
Practice Onu[doors
For the second straight day Varsity
Baseball Coach Ray Fisher got a
minor break in the weather yester-
day. The cold spell broke just
enough to allow Ray to send his out-
fielders outside to chase flies.
All of the outer gardeners. on the
squad, except Davie Nelson, went out-
side yesterday, equipped with football
cleats to give them reasonably sure
footing on the muddy.turf.
While the outfielders worked out of
doors the rest of the squad con-
tinued drills in the batting cages and
fielding practice on the, Field House
floor. Pitcher Paul Goldsmith turned
up with an ailing arm, but reported
that it doesn't bother his throwing.

plained of a sore hand, but doctors
