When 18-year old Wolverine Char-,
ley Fonville stepped into the shot1
put circle in the Illinois Field House
three Saturdays ago during the dual
meet with the Illini, he heaved the
iron ball 52 ft. 6 5/8 in., breaking the
freshman record for the fourth time
this year.
It is probable that for his age, the
young thinclad tossed that 16-pound
missile farther than anyone in the
history of the event. This statement
takes in a lot of territory. Neverthe-
less, neither Jack Torrance, holder of
the world's outdoor mark of 57 ft. 1
in. nor the late Al Blozis, whose in-
door throw of 56 feet 41%2 in. was also
a world's record, did any better than
the Wolverine at the tender age of
18.
ligh School Star
Fonville is the type of a fellow who
carries his laurels easily. He hails
from Detroit's Miller High School,
where he was a true all-around track-
man. In the 1945 outdoor City Cham-
pionships, he won the shot put,
placed third in the 100 and 220, and
ran on the winning 880-yard relay.
At various times during that year,
he high jumped six feet and ran the
century 10.2 seconds-not bad per-
formances for a 6 ft. 2 in., 190-pound
shot putter.
Although he had never throw]i the
discus before this outdoor season,
All lockers at the I-M Building
must be vacated by tomorrow.
--Earl Riskey

Coach Ken Doherty's tutelage and
his own natural speed and coordina-
tion carried him from an inexperi-
enced beginner, to a third place in
the Big Ten championships last Sat-

Walt Dell Selected
For All-Star Game

-

It was announced just before the
baseball game between Michigan and
Michigan State that Walt Kell, scrap-
py third baseman, would be Michi-
gan's playing representative in the
College All-Star Game to be played
in Boston's Fenway Park on June
14.
Kell joins the Western squad that
will be coached by Michigan's head
baseball coach, Ray Fisher. It was
announced at the same time that
Marty Hansen, Spartan shortstop,
will represent Michigan State at the
same game.

seventh without getting a hit. Rose-
ma received a free pass and was safe
at second when Roberts vainly tried
to make a play at second on Bob
Chappuis' intended sacrifice. Tomasi
sacrificed, moving the runners to
second and third. After Swanson
walked to load the bases, Block hit
a slow bounder to Hansen who threw
to Bob Groves at second for the force-
out, Rosema scoring on the play.
Kell ended the inning by striking
out.
The last run came as a result of a
freak play. Robinson walked and
on a steal, catcher Bucky Walsh
threw into centerfield, Robinson go-
ing to third. When centerfielder Ed
Sobczak's throw towards third hit
Hansen in the head and bounded
thirty feet into the air, Robinson
scampered home.
