Record Turnout Reports For Opening Basketball P

ractice

Coach Cowles Pleased
With Excellent Showing
Four Lettermen Return to Basketball Team;
This Year's Squad To Have Accent on Height
By BOB LENT
Coach Ozzie Cowles received a royal reception into Western Conference
circles yesterday as a record-breaking turnout of 105 basketball candidates
poured into Yost Field House for the opening practice"session.
Obviously pleased, the friendly little man who piloted Dartmouth to
seven Ivy League championships in the last eight years had to get ac-
quainted in shifts as manpower continues to be the keynote of collegiate
athletics. Starting at 2:30, he put a squad of 16 which included only
four lettermen, through two and three man offensive paces. At 3:30 a huge
contingent of guards and centers took over the floor and at 4:30 an equally

Week's Outstanding Linemen

NEW YORK, Oct. 16-P)-Burr
Baldwin, UCLA end who scored the
touchdown that sent the Bruins into
the 1943 Rose Bowl game and then
interrupted his gridiron career to
serve more than three years in the
Army, is football's "Lineman of, the
Week."
His performance last Saturday is
snagging half a dozen of Ernie Case's
passes for 115 yards and handling
the ball on two laterals, one of which
resulted in a touchdown, in UCLA's
26-6 triumph over Stanford brought
him top honors in the weekly poll of
the Associated Press to select the out-=

standing lineman of the country.
A trio of guards, Plato Andros of
Oklahoma, Steve Suhey of Penn
State and Knox Ramsey of William
and Mary, also received considerable
praise for their work last week.
Other outstanding linemen of the
past week included :
Ends--Elmer Madar, Michigan;
Abe Addams, Indiana; Hank Fold-
berg, Army.
Guards-George Kraeger, Michi-
gan; Hank Hachten, Stanford; Joe
Steffy, Army.
Center - Alex Sarkisan, North-
western.

Track Crown
Greene House nosed out Williams
by two points yesterday afternoon to
capture the 1946 fall residence hal
track title, chalking up 23 to the run-
ner-up's 21.
Tyler and Winchell tied for third
with 14, Allen-Rumsey, had 1312 aid
Lloyd 12. The1 other totals: Chicago
91; Adams, 5; Hinsdale, 4; Wenley,
3; and Victor Vaughan, 2.
Leroy Daggs of Greene and Cal.
houn of Winchell were the individua
stars. Daggs captured firsts in th
low hurdles in 9.6 seconds and th
broad jump with 19 ft. 1 1//8'in., while
Calhoun won the high jump at 5 ft
8 in. and the 440 yard dash in :57.

t

-n large batch of forwards checked in.
From all indications, this year's
squad will have an accent on height.
71 of the hopefuls reporting were six
feet or over and 22 of those topped
the 6 ft. 3 in. marker. Tallest man of
the lot is 6 ft. 6 in. Bill Roberts
who played some freshnian ball here,
in 42.
Most notable absentees were start-
ers from previous Michigan teams.
l Due to the overflow of basket-
ball turnouts, practice will be held
in the I-M building at 4:00 p.m.
tomorrow and thereafter until the
first cut.
Ozzie 'Cowles
Head Basktball Coach
With increased talk of a Wolverine
Rose Bowl bid, Cowles faces the pros-
pect of opening the season with only
e lettermen Don Linquist from the '44
e starting squad in the fold. Other let-
e ter-winnersbat the first practice were
Marty Feinberg, Bob Baker and Gor-
don Rosencrans from last year's five.
One of Cowles' biggest jobs will be
tgive the Wolverines a winning
complex. Not since the 1936-37 cam-
, paign has the Maize and Blue had a
better than .500 club in the Big Ten,
and with every school in the Con-
ference loaded with talent this year,
it won't be easy. Illinois has the
"Whiz Kids," Iowa has Ives; Danner,
and Weir back, and throughout the
Big Nine line-up it's the same story.
Nevertheless, Michigan should win
its share of ball games while bWild-
ing for the future.
Basketball managers are ur-
gently needed to help take care
of this year's huge squad. Stu-
dents interested with afternoons
after 2:00 p.m. free, should see
the senior manager at the Field
House any afteroon.

PROF TURNS COACH:
Robert Dixon Sueeeeds Weir
As Wolverme Tennis Mentor

Big Nine, Local Grid
Tilts This Week-end
Northwestern at Michigan
Wisconsin at Illinois
Purdue at Ohio State
Iowa at Indiana
Wyoming at Minnesota
Michigan State at Penn State
Detroit at Tulsa
Wayne at George Washington

W. Robert Dixon, a faculty mem-I
ber in the Michigan School of Edu-
cation, has been named to succeed
LeRoy Weir as head coach of the
Wolverine tennis team, it was an-
nounced yesterday by the Michigan
athletic department.
Dixon who helped Weir coach the
Wolverines' 1946 tennis team is no
newcomer to the net game. The new
Maize and Blue coach was ranked
number 19 in the nation last year by
the United States Lawn Tennis As-
sociation.
Graduate of Syracuse
Dixon graduated from Syracuse
University in 1938 and coached the
Orange freshman tennis team in
1939. He joined the Michigan facul-
ty in September 1945 after being dis-
charged from the armed forces.
The new Wolverine net mentor did
not take part in any national tourna-
ments this year but he did win the
Michigan State singles title at Flint
this summer. Dixon also teamed up
with his predecessor, Weir, to cop
the Hamtramck Open doubles tour-
nament.
In order to retain his amateur
standing Dixon will serve at Michi-
gan without pay. His position will
be analagous to that of Gardnar
Mulloy who coaches at Miami Uni-
veirsity, Fla., without pay and re-
tains his national amateur standing.
Second Appointment to Staff
Weir resigned earlier this fall to
accept a post as Dean of Men and
professor of history at Carroll Col-
lege, Waukesha, Wis. Weir had been
head tennis coach at Michigan since
1937. His teams of 1941, 1944 and
1945 took Western Conference
championships. Weir previously held

national ratings in both tennis and
squash.
Dixon's appointment is the second
on the Wolverine coaching staff this
fall.
