Loss Of Rae
Presents Big
Cage Problem
Fitzgerald Likely To Get
Job; Oosterbaan Seeks
More Height For Team
By HAL WILSON
Despite the shadow cast by thel
graduation of All-Conference center
Jim Rae and dependable guard
Charlie Pink, Michigan's basketball
picture for the forthcoming hard-
wvood campaign is brightened by two
factors-the return of seven veteran,
lettermen bolstered by one of the
'est yearling cage squads to come up
'o the Varsity in recent years.
Filling the gaping hole left- by
Rae's loss will be the number one
problem confronting Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan. The big pivot ace
ranked as one of the Wolverines'
all-time basketball greats, and hi
peerless ball handling, sharpshoot-
ing and defensive brilliance that was
a mainstay of the Maize and Blue
quintet for three years will bedsorely
missed.
Trio Of Centers
Oosterbaan's choice for the center
berth will likely be made from among
Bob Fitzgerald, junior veteran, and
a pair of towering sophomores, Jim
Mandler and Bob Bartlow.
As a newcomer last year six foot,
five inch Fitzgerald stepped right
into the starting lineup as a forward
in the Wolverines' earlier games, and
the experience thus acquired should
stand him in good stead in the battle
for the center spot.
Up from the yearling ranks, Man-
dler, a six foot, four inch hook-shot
expert, and Bartlow, who stretches
six feet, three inches, are expected
to supply some of the height so con-t
spicuously lacking from last year's
sixth place Conference outfit, al-
though they have yet to attain the
polish and poise requisite for Big
Ten standards of play.
Two Veteran Forwards
At the forward slots Oosterbaan
will be able, if he desires, to throw I
back into action the same pair that
saw most of the service at the posi-
tions last year, diminutive Mike So-
fiak and George Ruehle. But theE
mentor may choose to break up thisa
combination in favor of obtaining
more height at the guard berths. If
so, Ruehle, a steady, reliable per-
former, will probably be shifted to
the back line to team with Capt.
Herb Brogan.
In this event the forward spot will

CHICAGO. Ill. -An extension and
intensification of the athletic and
physical education programs in the
;chools and colleges of America, as
a means of integrating their pro-

by representatives of the National
Collegiate Athletic Association and
by athletic directors of the Western
Conference.

Sophomore UIinderstudy For Evashevski

Athletics To Aid National Defense

was expressed for the N.C.A.A. of-
fers of assistance in preparing men
for national defense.
The Committee urged the N.C.A.A.
members to cooperate in organiza-
tions striving to promote athletic
sports throughout the nation, such
as the American Legion and the
Athletic Institute.
Athletic Directors of the Western
Conference have adopted a "Plan of
Action in the Preparedness Program"
stressing physical fitness "not only
in terms of the physical, but in terms
of the social and emotional develop-
ment necessary for service to the
nation."

George Ceithaml, winner of the Chicago Alumni Trophy last spring,
will be used is a replacement for Capt. Forest Evashevski at quarterback
this fall. Spcedy and a very fine blocker, the Chicago boy has plenty of
football savvy and should fit into the signal calling post with very little
difficulty.
The trophy which George was awarded last spring was in reward
for his having been chosen as the player who had shown the most im.-
provement over the year. Ceithaml stands 5 feet 11 inches and weighs
185 pounds.

be wide open and the ensuing battle
for the berth will probably develop
into a dog-fight with lettermen Bill
Cartmill and Joe Glasser, and last
year's reserves, gridder Norm Call
and Harold Westerman, accorded the
best chance of moving into the start-
ing lineup.
hi the thick of the fight, however,
and not to be prematurely excluded
prom the running is a pair of prom-
ising sophomores, Joe Lauchiskaus,
if he is scholastically clean, and Leo
Doyle, willowy six-footer.
Possessing the sharpest shooting
eye on the squad in addition to a
masterful floor game, Capt. Brogan
is a bulwark at one of the guard
posts. Another letter winner, stocky
Jim Grissen, will make a determined
bid for the other berth with reserves
Don Holman, scrappy junior, and
Bill Herrmann pressing close behind.
Making their initial attempts to
win guard positions on the Wolver-
ine quintet, two more sophomore grid
performers, Wallace Keatiing and
Bob Kresja, may also count heavily
in Oosterbaan's plans for his third
Michigan cage team.
