Katzenmeyer Picks Eight Linksmen
To Make Five-Match Southern Tour

initial Football Practice
Attracts 130 Candidates
Approximately 130 football hopefuls greeted Fritz Crisler at Yost
Field House yesterday, as the first spring football turnout far ex-
ceeded the most optimistic estimate.
However, of the 130, only eight lettermen were included. Along
with five 1946 veterans, three gridders from other seasons reported.
Of the three, tackle Jerry Brailmaier and fullback Tom Peterson are
letter winners from the 1944 outfit, while Hugh Mack, spunky quarter-
back, is a veteran of the Maize and Blue's 1943 eleven.
Iasic Principles Stressed
Crisler revealed that outdoor practices will not begin until after
spring vacation, but for the remainder of the week the prospective
gridmen will attend meetings at ,

Holiday Elected Captain
Of Next Years Natators
Mann Praises Teams Showing in Seattle
Lauds Performances of Weinberg, Stager

Announcement that the NCAA
swimming meet will be held in
1948 in the Michigan pool was
made yesterday by Coach Matt
Mann, Wolverine swimming men-
Also announced yesterday was
the election of Harry Holiday, Na-
tional Backstroke Champion, as
captain of next year's swimming
team. Holiday is acknowledged as
the best backstroker in I he coun-
try and is virtually certain of be-
ing named to the 1948 U.S. Olym-
pic team.
Coach Mann was all smiles
over the performances of "his
boys" in last weekend's NCAA
meet at Seattle. "They proved
that they were the top swim-I
mers in the country," Coach
Mann said, and when one takes
into account the fact that the
Buckeyes scored 30 of their 66
points in the diving events this
statement is easily understood.
The Michigan mentor was lav-
ish with his praises especially over
the performances of Gus Stager
and Dick Weinberg. Stager swam
his heart out in the 440-yard free
style to come in only a few feet
behind Bill Smith in the fine time
of 4:49. Stager also swam a sizz-
ling :52.5 lap in the 400-yard re-
lay time trials, but here the Wol-
verines were not fast enough as
they were edged out of the finals
by a narrow margin. This is the
first time in 20 years that a
Michigan relay team has failed
to make the finals.
Weinberg in annexing two
national titles in the 50 and 100-
yard free styles was easily one
of the outstanding swimmers of
the meet. His time in the "50"

back stroke champ chosen to
captain the Wolverine swimmers
next season.
Contest Begins
With an expected 1,500 entries
for the largest drawing card on
the sports program., the team and
All-Campus foul-shooting tourna-
ments got under way yesterday at
the I-M Building.
Every day until Thursday from
3 to 10 p.m., fraternity, residence
halls and independent teams will
compete with each individual on
the squad shooting two rounds of
twenty-five tries apiece. The team
score will be computed'on the ba-
sis of the ten best rounds.
In the individual All-Campus
tourney each "dead-eye" will be
allowed four rounds of twenty-
five shots, but a minimum of fif-
teen free throws must be made
in the initial group before one
can advance . to the following

I was right down near record-
breaking and his victory over
Hlirose in the "100" was coin-
pletely undisputed. Ile touched
out the Hawaiian star of the
Ohio State team by a good foot
to win easily. Weinberg also
turned in a sterling performance
in the 300-yard medley relay.
Here he was handed only a
slight lead and still managed
to win with plenty to spare.
One other outstanding perform-
ance that will not be entered in
the books was turned in by fresh-
man Bill Crispin, who swam the
fastest 50-yard free style he's ever
done. He swam the distance in
:23.7, but just wasn't good enough'
to make the semi-finals. He was
beaten out by three men, Bob
Anderson of Stanford, former
champ, Halo Hirose and Johnny
Tsukano of Hawaii, all of whom
did :23.4.
So impressed were the experts
by the showing of the Wolver-
ine miermen that Coach Mann
was invited to take six men to
compete against the powerful
Hawaii University swimming
team after the National Out-
doors in the summer.
All in all, the Wolverine swim-
ming team made a name for itself
in Seattle and now the cry of
Coach Mann and all the men on
the team is "Wait till next year."
And well we might, for on paper
the Maize and Blue swimming
team stacks up as one of the
strongest ever to represent Mich-
igan. In the words of the newly-
elected captain Harry Holiday, "It
looks like we'll be getting the chil-
dren out of the race early next
year. and then Ohio State, watch,
