"THEY CAME BACK!":
White Brothers Shine

Golfers To Try Again!
On Monday, Tuesday

By BERNIE MEISLIN
Two brothers now performing
for Ray Fisher's nine have dis-
proved the old sports world adage,
"they never come back," by their
sterling athletic perforimaxincs at
the University of Michigan.
The White brothers, 2aul. 25,
and J. T., 27, had been out of in-
tercollegiate athletic action for
three years when they reported to
coach Fritz Crisler for heavy grid
duty last fall.
Paul, in the 1946 season, came
to assume his old familiar po-
sition as one of the most feared
halfbacks in Western Confer-
ence football, a role he earned
in the 1941, '42 and '43 seasons.
J. T. quickly took over the num-
ber one center spot and his alert,
bruising play brought widespread
recognition and acclaim. Right
now J. T. seems a certainty to
start at center in the Wolverine
Fall grid curtain raiser, and to
hold that position throughout the
season.
Paul captained the 1943 Mich-
igan football team before enter-
ing the Marine Corps. As a first
lieutenant with the Third Mar-
ines he saw action at Guam and
Iwo Jima.

In 1942 he led Maize and Blue
scorers with 48 points, a total of

eight touchdowns. It was in that Ann Arbor weather, long thea
year that Paul played the game he nemesis of Wolverine athleticj

Saginaw Wins
Rouge Relays
With 51 Points.
Ypsilanti Teais Rule
Two Other Classes
By BUD WEIDENTHAL
Saginawv Eastern High School
captured four firsts and amassed
51 points to gain, the Clas A title
in the eighth annual River Rouge
r~elajys last night' at Ycst Field
House.
Gicse on the heels of Eastern1
vas Saginaw Arthur Hill, last
v cars champs, with 38r points.
Four Records Smashed
Four meet records were broken
and one tied as 1.139 schoolboyI
athletes sought the mythical
State Indoor track championships.
In Class B Ypsilanti Central,
paced by double-winner Lawrence
Perry, gained the title with 36 1-5
points.
Another Ypsilanti school, Roose-
velt High, emerged victorious in
the combined C and D classes,
totaling 282 points.
Largest Indoor Meet
Claiming the unique honor of
being the largest indoor track
meet ever to be held in a single
day, the huge spectacle was run
off with clockwork precision and
even finished a little ahead of
schedule.
John Koczman, representing
Milan High School, heaved the
12 lb. shot the astounding dis-
tance of 51 feet two inches to es-
tablish a new record in that event.
Bill Hervey of Saginaw Arthur
Hill broke the tape in 6.4 seconds
to establish a new mark in the
60-yard dash.
Medley Team Sets Record
Saginaw Eastern's 880-yard Med-
ley Relay team also racked up a
new record, leading the field in
1 :36.3, while James Kepfort of
Muskegon set a new mark in the
individual "880" with a perform-
.ance of 2:03.7.
George Bachus of Ann Arbor
High captured the Class A 440-
yard dash in 53.9 seconds. He was
the only Ann Arbor victor.
Perry Only Double Winner
Lawrence Perry of Ypsilanti
Central was the only dobule win-
ner of the evening, winning both
the 60-yard dash and the 65-yard
low hurdles in Class B.
During the course of the even-
ing, Michigan's Olympic hope,
Chuck Fonville, gave the crowd
a thrilling exhibition of shot put-
ting. He hurled the 12 lb. high
school shot over 61 feet and the
16 lb. shot over 51 feet.

Rain again struck a gl?: at
Michigan'sbaec1 qa eIu-
day as wet groull r
postponement .f te w d
doubleheader vwith WaneLUniver(i-
sity.
This was the second time in
as many days that the wet con-
dition of Michigan's infield had
prevented the teams from ply-
ing. Friday's game was; to have
been played as the first halOw of
yesterday's doubleheader, and
the regular Saturday gam, or-
iginally scheduled for Detroit's
Northwestern Field, was to be
brought up to Ann Arbor as hne
nightcap. A dale for the replay
will be s'et later in the season.
The bad weather prevented
Coach Ray Fisher from testing his
untried hurlers, whom he had
been hoping to pit against the
Wayne nine. Thus, he will have
to wait until next Tuesday, when

vernesplay host tWest-
n M .l_gni's Broncos. to use any
o1 t 1 men lie hai planned to
plthin yesteLrday's gamies.
Fisher was to use Bob Fan-
ctt, Bob Hicks and J. T. White
as well as several other young
hurlers. The postponement al-
so delayed settlement of the dis-
ruLed third base question. Ted
r rce, Charlie Ketterer and
Willard Baker, all of whom
have been working around the
hot corncr, were scheduled to
play against the Tartars.
Besides the Western Michigan
game on Tuesday, the Wolverine
souad is scheduled to battle the
University of Detroit Titans on
Wednesday. Michigan played the
Titans twice last year, swamping
tlftm 26-3 and 10-0. On Friday,
the nine will open its Western
Conference season against Illinois.
