Berce Directs
PW Athletics
At Army Base
Providing an athletic program for
1,500 American Army disciplinary
men, ages ranging from 19 to 40, is
the task of Ted Berce, '45, varsity
basketball letter winner, at Jeffer-
son Barracks in Missouri.
For the last six months, Berce
has organized and directed tourna-
ments in all major sports and num-
erous other activities requested by
the prisoners.
With the aid of 10 immates, Berce
puts over the program, which was in-
augurated to lessen the restless at-
titude of the prisoners, and on the
whole, finds that the men's interest
is high in regard to sports and they
show lots of ambition in participat-
Equipment Used Continually
Although the equipment at Jeffer-
son Barracks is not adequate, all that
is available is appreciated and is put
into contiual use. An indoor gym-
nasium, recreational hall and playing
space for baseball and other outdoor
activities are the facilities.
Berce came to Michigan in the fall
of '45 from Fordson High School in
Dearborn, where he starred in basket-
ball, baseball and football. Called
away by the army after one semester
here, he hopes to return next year
to continue his studies in physical

Shortsop is still a wide-open proposition with highly-touted Jack Wal-1

to advance notices but still holds the nod over Caulfield.
It's not too hard to see that the success of the Athletics deuends main-
ly upon Connie Mack's crew of flingers. l3cfensively, the club lines up
fairly well but there's almost no batting punch to give Mack's hurlers
any kind of support.
At this writing the A's don't look much like first division material.
They've been greatly strengthened by the return of service personnel, but so
,has the rest of the League. Even if the mound corps clicks, it's hard to see
the Athletics getting any higher up than fifth or sixth spot.

bet your last dollar that Jack Tallet.
