A victory-laden Wolverine track squadf will be entering the final stretch

After tonight's competition, the team will enjoy a brief respite from
rigorous workouts 1efore the outdoor season begins. For many of the
squad, the Relays probably will be the last indoor running that they will
do for Michigan. Before next season rolls around, many of the servicemen,

('I)-The Detroit Tigers-now a full
18 strong and true men-skipped
through another workout under
warm sunshine today while Manager
Steve O'Neill chose a team to play
the Chicago White Sox in the exhi-
bition series opener tomorrow.
Lacking much likeness to the out-
fit which functioned for Detroit last
season, O'Neill's selections will in-
clude more new faces than any debut
spring team in the club's history.
One of them, however, will be
familiar. Paul (Dizzy) Trout, the
20-game winner of 1943, is going to
start against the Sox. He'll work
three innings, possibly against the
Sax's Orval Grove.
Manager O'Neill planned to divide
the rest of the game between Henry
}Iresko. 17-year-old righthander of
American Legion junior baseball
fame, and Bill Kasepchuk, Windsor.
Ont., rookie who is the propety of
Buffalo of the International League.
The Tigers' supporting cast will
include Bob Swift, catcher; Rudy
York, first base; Ed Borom, second
base; Eddie Mayo, shortstop; Char-
ley Metro, third base, and Jimmy
Outlaw, Chuck Hostetler and Zeb
Eaton, a pitcher, in the outfield.

Dr. L. N. Duncan, president of Ala-

lost "an undeniably great coach,"
and added: "the alumni will long re-
member him as the 'irate man' who
brought the college from football dol-
drums to a Conference championship
in four years."

High School in Detroit, where Ket-
terer won eight varsity letters out of
a possible nine; three in baseball,
three in basketball and two in foot-
ball. Although he has always played
an infield position, Ketterer spent
his high school seasons guarding
third instead of the second sack. J
After two years as a civilian stu-
dent in the University, the 21-year-
old athlete was taken into the Ma-
rine Corps in July of '43, when the
campus unit was stated. He was a
regular substitute on the basketball
quintet this season, playing a guardj
Votes for Gehringer
With Bob Nussbaumer and Mike
Farnyk, Ketterer was started against
southpaws during the '43 diamond
season, alternating at second for Bob
Stenberg, the regular guardian of the
base. He believes that the hardest
play required of a second baseman is
going behind the bag for a liner.
Since he is such a rabid Tiger fan,
it is not surprising that Ketterer's
all-time second baseman is Charley
Gehringer, the Silent Knight. "He
could make the toughest play look
the easiest."

Ketterer is ,no slouch as a second-
sacker -himself. He was not a regular
in '43, but he maintained a perfect
fielding average and batted well over
the .400 mark. This is an excellent
record, although Ketterer was at the
plate fexver times than any other
letterman on the squad.
Ketterer's best friend, Dave Nel-
son, is now overseas. Nelson was a
former Michigan football and base-
ball star, and when Ketterer first
came to school was a senior. , How-
ever, as a freshman, he roomed with
Nelson and their present relationship
developed as a result of this associa-
tion. It was Nelson who introduced
Ketterer to the coaches and first
encouraged him to participate in
Wants To Coach
Ketterer was interested in becom-
ing a physical education major be-
fore he was taken into the Marines,
and still hopes to continue his study
in that field here after the war. He
intends to get his degree as quicl ly
as possible and then become a coach.
Of the sports he is most familiar
with, he rates baseball at the top,
and has always been so interested in
the game that he has kept several
scrapbooks full of clippings about it.
Ty Cobb, he believes, is the greatest
of them all. This is not based on the
reports of others who have seen the
Georgia Peach play, for Ketterer saw
him perform for Detroit during those
early visits to Navin Field with his
