TUESDAY, DECEBER 11, 1945
On February 2
Four Meets Scheduled
For Yost Field House
By WALT KLEE
With four of the outstanding track
teams in the Midwest competing
against the Wolverine cindermen in
meets to be held in the Yost Field
House in February and March, the
1946 Indoor Track season shapes up
as being the best in years for the
Michigan track fan.
Commenting on the schedule, the
Maize and Blue track coach, Ken
Doherty, said, "It is a very good
schedule and will give us a definite
idea what we will have to face March
9th in Chicago in the Conference In-
Three-Way Meet to Open Season
The Purdue and Ohio State thin-
clads will open the season February
2nd in a three-way meet with the
Wolverines to be held in the Field'
The outdoor season is just the op-
posite of the indoor, with five meets
to be held at Ohio State, Pennsyl-
vania, Purdue, Notre Dame, and Illi-
Seven Illini Return
Illinois with seven key lettermen
returning for another season looks
like the best team from observations
made this early in the season. These
seven men compiled 41 out of 65% 1/
points garnered by the Illini in the
Outdoor Championships last year.
Purdue will have Bill Bangert, Na-
tional Collegiate shot and discus
The Buckeyes will have an out-
standing Freshman in Mickey Orfan-
eedes who won the state half mile
event last year
Michigan with 13 lettermen can be
counted on to give the visitors ample
competition in all of the meets sched-
uled for the local fans this winter.

Syracuse May Offer Job
Of Head Coach to Munn
Uncu6ried Rumors Indicate Michigan's
Line Coach Likely First Choice for Position
By MARY LU HEATH
Associate Sports Editor
Rumors that Clarence (Biggie)
Munn, Michigan line coach, will ac-
cept the head coaching position at
Syracuse University continued to
await confirmation from Munn, fol-
lowing an announcement by Syracuse
officials yesterday that he might be
given first choice at the job.
Munn, who is in Northern Michigan
showing football films and lecturing
at present, will return here as soon
as his tour is over to accept or turn
down the Syracuse job. He is expected
to conclude his lecture schedule in
three or four days.
'Interested', Says Munn
Contacted for a statement yester-
day, Munn told reporters who in-
formed him of the Syracuse offer,
"Thanks for the compliment. I have
not been officially informed of the
opening, but I will be, interested if
they offer me the head coach's job
at Syracuse-or any head coaching
job, for that matter."
Announcement of the offer came
from a spokesman for the Syracuse
athletic governing board, who said
that Ossie Solem, the present coach,
would be released after Chancellor
William Tolley approved the dis-
charge. Solem, who won one game this
year and two last year, was head
coach at Syracuse in 1937, when Munn
served as line coach under him.
Came Here in '38
Munn, often mentioned as Head
Coach H. O. (Fritz) Crisler's succes-
sor when and if the Michigan mentor
should decide to devote all his time
to his job as athletic director, became
line coach for the Wolverines in 1938,
the year Crisler also started his ten-
ure here. During Crisler's Panama trip
for the Army last year, Munn took
over as director of spring football
drills. Crisler could not be reached for
In addition to his year at Syracuse,
Munn was head football coach and
athletic director at Albright College,
Reading, Pa. He played under Crisler
at Minnesota, and was named All-
Conference and All-American guard
in both 1930 and 1931.
He also captained the track and
football tcams as a senior, winning
the Conference scholarship-athletics
medal and receiving the Chicago
Tribune award as the most valuale
player the same year.
The Syracuse position is not the
first big-time coaching job Munn has
been offered during his tenure at
Michigan. He could have taken the
head coach's job at Iowa last winter,
but decided to refuse the bid.
Returning from a conference of Big
Ten coaches, Cliff Keen, head wrest-
ling mentor for the Wolverines, an-
nounced that the 1945-46 wrestling
team will compete against seven op-
The schedule is complete as fol-
lows: January 19, Indiana at Bloom-
ington; January 26, Purdue at Ann
Arbor; February 2, Wisconsin at
Madison; February 9, Illinois at
Champaigne; February 15, Ohio State
University at Ann Arbor; February
25, Michigan State -at Ann Arbor;
March 7, Northwestern at Evanston;
and on the eighth and ninth of March.
the Conference champions will be de-
termined at the University of Illinois.
Coach Keen further announced
that the All-Campus Wrestling
Tournament, which was to take place
this week, has been postponed until
Dec. 18, which will be weighing in
day, and Dec. 19 and 20, which will be
the days when the matches are run

By BILL MULLENDORE

in the selection of the Associated
Press 1945 All-American team as the
nation's number one grid aggregation
placed the unprecedented total of
five men on the first eleven.
In addition to Glen Davis and
Felix (Doc) Blanchard, whose nam-
ing was practically automatic, the
Cadetsralso are represented by DeWitt
Coulter and Al Nemetz at the two
tackles, and John Green at guard.
For Davis and Blanchard, it was
the second double selection in as
many years. The other three are
newcomers to national honors.
Others named on the first team
were: ENDS, Hubert Bechtol (Tex-
as) and Dick Duden (Navy);
GUARD, Warren Amling (Ohio
State); CENTER, Vaughan Man-
cha (Alabama); BACKS, herman
Wedemeyer (St. Mary's) and Bob
Fenimore (Oklahoma A. & M.)

inations were Ends Art Renner and
Leonard Ford, Center Harold Watts,
and Quarterback Joe Ponsetto. All
received honorable mention recogni-
Named to the second team All-
American are: ENDS, Max Morris
(Northwestern) and Hank Fold-
berg (Army); TACKLES, Tom
Dean (Southern Methodist) and
Jim Kekeris (Missouri); CENTER,

up on the list. No team in the history
of football has ever blanketed the
individual field so completely.
Significantly, the Western Confer-
ence, traditionally the strong grid
group in the nation, placed only one
man among the first eleven.
Wolverine gridders, Joe Pon-
setto and Dominic Tomasi, were
guest speakers yesterday at the
University of Michigan club of

For Two Wins
Team Away Friday;
Plays Home Saturday
Wolverine pucksters, sparked by
their second consecutive victory of
the season, will be shooting for their
third and fourth wins this weekend
when they take on two Canadian sex-
Michigan's ice squad will face the
Windsor Spitfires Friday night in
Windsor and return to Ann Arbor for
Saturday's game with the Windsor
Colonials sextet. Coach 'ic Heyliger
said the team looked swell against
the Owen Sound Mohawks last Satur-
day, but the players still need to work
on shooting and passing.
During the Mohawk encounter the
Michigan team passed uphseveral
scoring opportunities and the Maize
and Blue's puck mentor will continue
to stress these points in this week's
Heyliger was especially pleased with
the showing of Michigan's varsity
forward, Bill Jacobson, who marked
up four of the team's eight goals.
Commenting on Jacobson, Heyliger
said "He had a great night, and was
always in the right spot at the right!
The Maize and Blue coach an-
nounced that Connie Hill was electedj

holds down a defense spot on the
Wolverine puck team.
