Michigan Natators Underdogs
Again to OSU This Weekend

Wolverine swimmers will offi-
ially end the 1946-47 tank season
this weekend when six men at-
tempt to wrest a few points away
from Ohio State in the National
AAU meet in Columbus.
Accompanying Coach Matt
Mann will be Captain Alex Can-
Ja and Gil Evans, divers, free-
s stylers Dick Weinberg and Gus
Stager, backstroker Harry Holi-
day and Bob Sohl, breaststroke
As has usually been the case
this year the Buckeyes are rated
heavy favorites and will have the
added advantage of swimming in
their home pool. Competition will
be much the same as it was the
past weekend with a few subtrac-
W tions and one or two notable ad-
Most prominent among these
r additions will be Alex Jany, sen-
sational young Frenchman, who
is currently on an exhibition
tour of the United States. Jany,
only 19, and a prominent mem-
ber of the strong French Olym-
pic entry, showed his talents in
a couple of exhibition races two
weeks ago at the Eastern Inter-
collegiates in New Haven.
There he swam alone and still
managed to turn in clockings of
:22.7 for the 50-yard freestyle and
:50.9 for the 100-yard distance.
These exhibition times are faster
than anything recorded in this
country this year and if they can
be repeated, should be good enough
to win. Chief competition to the
young French star will be Dick
Weinberg of Michigan, newly
crowned National champion in
both these distances, Halo Hirose
of Ohio State and Ed Heuber of
BIn the 200-yard breast stroke
Bob Sohl will get another crack

at the Philadelphia flash, Joe
Verdeur. Verdeur swam ths dis-
ance this past weekend in
2:16.8, but Sohl's time was not
up to his usual standards. Their
next meeting may be a differ-
ent story even though Verdeur
is heavily favored to repeat his
victory. I
Michigan entrants will rate defi-
nite favorites in two events, as
Harry Holiday is expected to con-
tinue his undefeated skein of 150-
yard backstroke triumphs, and the
300-yard medley team, regarded
as the best in the country, are fa-
vored to win.
The medley relay trio to Holi-
iday, Sohl and Weinberg were
clocked in the comparatively slow
time of 2:54.4 in the NCAA meet.
However, this was partially due to
the white paneling of the pool
which caused a number of swim-
mers to misjudge their turns and
consequently slow down the times.

CHICAGO, April 1 -- -(A') - The
All-America Football Conference
today signed three new players
and a fourth, Claude (Buddy)
Young, former University of Illi-
nois halfback, indicated he had
come to terms with the New York
At the second session of a spe-
cial league schedule meeting, the
Los Angeles Dons announced sign-
ing of halfbacks Russ Reader,
Dearborn, Mich., Michigan State
College's leading ground-gainer
the last two seasons, and Johnny
Andretich of Chicago, prewar
Purdue star. The third player
signed was end Hubert Bechtol,
All-America star at the University
of Texas in 1944 and 1945, who
joined the new Baltimore Club.
It was believed that if the Yan-
kees signed Young he would be
traded to the Chicago Rockets, for
whom he might prove a strong
home-town gate attraction.

Mann Counts
On Weinberg
To Ni1) Hirose
When Michigan's swimmers
write "finis" to their current cam-
paign this week-end. Coach &Latt
Mann will be counting on Dick
Weinberg, his surprise double win-
ner in last week's NCAA meet, to
give the Wolverines some much
needed points in the sprints.
Commenting upon Weinberg's
twin victories, Mann jubilantly
exclaimed upon his return that
"Dick has taken his place as one
of the greatest free stylers in the
For the first time since he has
been swimming against Halo Hi-
rose of Ohio State, Weinberg was
ablk to overcome his old role of
"bridesmaid", in the 100 yard
event. This was partially due to
the fact that Weinberg's first "50"
was always clocked in slightly over
24 seconds, because he felt that
by steaming the first lap any
faster he would be too tired to
keep up the same momentum for
the last part.
This time, however, he slid
through the initial 50 yards in
24 seconds flat and headed Hi-
rose all the way to add the sec-
ond individual NCAA crown to
his collection. Still, Mann be-
lieves that Weinberg is capable
of bettering his time, and adds
that "he's got to" in order to
continue his winning ways.
Weinberg never saw a pool until
he was a soph at Saginaw Arthur
Hill High. That year found the
first swimming team in the his-
tory of the high school. Since
they had no pool of their own,
they were forced to practice in
the "overgrownabathtub" at the
YMCA, which had two lanes and
measured 15 ft. wide and 20 yards
Although he and the other
natators swam around in cir-
cles with short distances be-
tween them, in the meets he
straightened out and even cap-
tured the 100 yard free style
title and set a record of 23.6 in
taking the 50 yd. championship
during his senior year.
After the season ended, they re-
ceived an invitation from the
National AAU in New York where
he snagged third in the century
and swam on the second place
free style and medley relay teams.

day, closed his eyes and picked
eighteen men to accompany himt
on his jaunt through Dixie, start-
ing this Friday.
Under the "spring training"
conditions the wily diamond pilot
has had to work with, he could do
little else. Workouts have been
confined to batting cage drills and
limbering up exercises at Yost
Field House and have afforded
him no real insight on the calibre
of this year's talent.
"It's a shame to have to pick
men when I don't, even know what
they can do," moaned Fisher as
he sat down to his thankless task.
Four Holdovers Make Trip
Included in the group heading
south Thursday are nine letter-
men. Four of them, Jack Weisen-
berger, Dom Tomasi, Paul White
and Cliff Wise, are holdovers from
last year's second place Big Nine
Weisenberger and Tomasi give
the Wolverines a veteran key-
stone combination that should
rank with any in the conference
this year. Newcomer Ted Berce
will be at third and either Howie
Wikel or Don Boor will be on first
when the Wolverines open against
Maryland Friday. Wikel was a let-
terwinner at short in '43 and Boor
won a letter at the initial sack in
Wise Only Experienced Pitcher
White will team up with Bob
Wiese and "Bump" Elliott to give
the Maize and Blue an experi-
enced fly-chasing trio. Freshman
Ralph Morrison is the other gar-
dener who will make the trip.
On the shoulders of Wise will
fall the brunt of the Michigan
pitching chore. And quite a chore
it is too with nine games sched-
uled in nine days. Cliff posted a
7-0 recordlast year, but it is
doubtful if he will see action in
more than three games in the
South. That leaves the remaining
mound duties to a quintet of un-
tried but promising youngsters,
Bob Fancett, Bud Rankin, Dick
Schmidtke, Don Heikkinen and
another twirler to be named.

BehindM le plate, Fisher plans
to use Hal Raymond a:ncd Joh n
Kulpinski. This comes as some-
what of a surprise since it leaves
Fred Capoferi, understudy catch-
er last year at home. Other nota-
ble omissions were Dick Body-

America's foremost authority on young
people's problems

What does it matter if you're not an extrovert?
If everyone were a star performer...strutting
stuff on a stage...there'd be no audience!
We aren't all equipped with the courage of the comedian
who takes jeers, catcalls and overripe merchandise along with
his applause. We aren't all endowed with poise and agility to
do handstands in public.
Many of us do our very best work in private. Alone with a
congenial soul we put on a very good show. Together with a
handful of cronies...we blossom out with an A-I performance.
But because mob scenes panic you...strange faces freeze you
...and too many listening ears make you bewitched...you crawl
into a shell marked "shy". And hide. You use it as your excuse
for not putting out your best foot in any direction.
Nothing you have to say could possibly interest anybody,
you think...so you shut up like a clam. You'd probably look
foolish if you tried anything new in public...people would
laugh ...so you hang back. In comparison to people you know
...your looks and talents come modestly out the small end of
the horn. So you douse your self-confidence yourself ... and
shiver with fears.
But the days of the vapors are over! Hockey players seldom
swoon. Ladies are now exotic and efficient busy bees. You have
your own special claims on fame. You needn't shrivel up with
All eyes are not looking at you! Nobody cares what you do
...nearly as much as you do. So stop worrying about the impres.
sion you're making. Relax and let people impress you. It might
surprise you to know how eagerly they want YOU to like them!
