tions.
Every student who has participat-
ed in some war activity is to wear the
uniform she worked in, if it is posr
sible for her to do so. Each group

By BUD LOW
The "Big Four"-that's what they
are called, and they have a lot more
in common than just the fact tha.t
they will probably provide the lion's
share of the power hitting for Coach
Ray Fisher's baseball squad this
year.
Dick Walterhouse, Bob Wiese, Paul
White, and Don Lund are the gentle-
men in question. , Walterhouse has
just about clinched a starting posi-
tion at first, while the other three
will undoubtedly be planted safely
in the outer garden by the time the
opening game with Iowa rolls around
on April 9.
All Strong Batters
All four should give Michigan just
the strength that it needs at the
plate to back up the excellent mound
staff. As a matter of fact, this quar-
tet has shown up so well in practice
that they have been responsible for
almost all of the distant clouting to
date.
As far as the batting department
goes, the similarity of the foursome
stops here; for two-Walterhouse
and Lund-are right-hand hitters,
while the other two stand on the
port side of the plate.
Last fall each of the men played;
football. White, Wiese, and Lund
played in the backfield for Fritz
Crisler's Wolverines, while Walter-
house was the star halfback on the
freshman squad. Then this past
winter all except White turned their
talent to the cage sport, Lund and
Wiese each winning a letter for play-
ing on Bennie Oosterbaan's Varsity
team, and again it Was the Ann
Arbor flash who starred for the frosh
cagers. White, also, was a basketball
player, winning his Varsity numerals
last year. This year, however, the
"Whizzer" decided to drop the winter
sport and concentrate on football
and baseball.
Versatile Athletes

for the war, Walterhouse, Wiese and
Lund would undoubtedly become at
least nine letter men, something that
hasn't been done since Danny Smick
won nine Varsity awards during the
years 1936-39.
White, who held down the right
field berth last year, is captain-elect
of the football team, and probably
could become a mainstay of the
track team if he only could spare the
time. Paul was state hurdle cham-
pion in '39 when he went to River
Rouge.
Fisher Optimistic
Coach Fisher seems rather opti-
mistic about the "Big Four", and
after all why shouldn't he? The
"Whizzer" is one of his few return-
ing lettermen from last season, when
he and'Chamberlain led the Confer-
ence in home runs. In spite of this,
however, Paul didn't do quite as well
at the plate as he was expected to
last year, but he has definitely
shown a great deal of improvement
so far this season.
Wiese and Lund both should give
White plenty of support in all de-
partments.
