'M' Links Captain, Track Star Earn
'47 NCAA Individual Championship

Two of Michigan's foremost
athletes-Dave Barclay, smooth-
swinging captain of the '47 golf
squad, and Chuck Fonville, crack
shot-put artist-were crowned na-
tional collegiate champions in
their respective specialties this
past summer.
Home, Sweet Home
Appropriately enough, Barclay's
one-up victory over Jack Coyle of
Louisiana State in the 36-hole
finals was staged on a familiar
course-the University of Mich-
igan links. It was the first time
in 50 years of NCAA golf compe-
tition that the Wolverine links
has played host to this national
collegiate tourney.
Barclay, a 26-year-old junior
from Rockford, fll., faced a pow-
er-laden 303-man field in the
qualifying rounds, but played con-
sistently-brilliant golf to become
the third Maize and Blue golfer
in history to win a national title.
Wolverines Fifth
In the same week of busy action
on the long and tricky Michigan
course, the Wolverine squad, Big
Nine champs, finished fifth in the
four - man team play - offs as
Louisiana State walked off with
first place honors. Also ahead of
the Wolverines were Duke Stan-
ford and San Jose in this biggest
tourney of its kind ever played.
Record-breaking Chuck Fonville
had to travel to Salt Lake City
to take the national collegiate
shot-put title with a heave of 54

ft. 10%/ in. This mark bettered
Bill Watson's all-time Michigan
high of 54 ft. 612 in.
When the Big Nine tracksters
defea-ted their Pacific Coast rivals
on June 28 by a top-heavy score,
Fonville was edged out in both
the shot-put and the discus throw

way to the National Collegiate
championship early this sum-

A few weeks later, Fonville sank to
fifth place in the National AAU
shot-put event.
Four Michigan tennis stars-
Captain Bill Mikulich, Fred Otto,
AndyiPaton and Dick Lin-
coln, were invited to several net
meets throughout the country
during the summer. Mikulich cap-
tured the Upper Peninsula singles
Otto recorded his best effort'
when he reached the finals of the
Wentworth Invitation at New
Castle, N. H., only to bow to Art
Graybill of the University of Red-
lands. Paton lost to Bill Sidwell
of the Australian Davis Cup team
in the second round of the recent
National Amateur tennis tourney
at Forest Hills.
Lincoln, who played number
five with the '47 Wolverine rac-
queteers, won the junior singles
title in the St. Joseph Invitational
at Gary, Ind.
Coach Shows 'em
While most of his boys were
picking up valuable experience in
net tourneys, Coach Bob Dixon,
who tutored the Wolverines with-
out pay to retain his amateur
standing, "kept in shape" by win-
ning the Michigan Closed Tennis
Championship at Flint for the
second consecutive year.
Joseph Vancisin, former Dart-
mouth College basketball star, re-
ported this month at Michigan as
the new freshman basketball
coach. He was chosen by head
coach Ozzie Cowles, for whom he
played guard while the latter di-
rected Dartmouth hoop outfits.

verine golfer who was co-medalist
in this year's Big Nine individual
championships, has been elected

links squad.

Roger Kessler, a member of the
'47 Michigan golf team, won the
Detroit Times golf meet this sum-
mer, and represented this area at
the National Hearst invitational
in California. However, he
dropped out in the second round
of national play.
Architect's plans for a new
University of Michigan golf club-
house and service building at the
University course were approved
this summer by the Athletic De-

years, is the new Michigan head
trainer. He succeeded Ray Rob-
erts, who resigned this year af-
ter 17 years as the Wolverine head
trainer to assume a similar post
with the Detroit Lions.

By The Associated Press
Hank Edwards' ninth inning
homer dropped Detroit back into
a second place tie with Boston by
giving Cleveland a 7 to 6 nightcap
win today after the Tigers had
won the first game of a double-
header 6 to 4.
With his three-run circuit clout
Edwards matched Detroit's Roy
Cullenbine, whose 24th home run
an inning earlier had given the
Tigers a three-run lead and whose
double in the eighth inning of the
opener drove in the winning runs.
Edwards was the first man to
face Virgil Trucks, who relieved
Stubby Overmire after successive
singles by Jim Hegan, Hal Rosen
and Dale Mitchell started the fa-
tal ninth. Trucks was charged
with the loss. Ed Klieman gained
the victory before Bobby Feller
was called in to pitch the ninth
and hurled hitless ball.
Young Art Houtteman weath-
ered two bad innings to win the
opener, besting Al Gettel and
Steve Gromek.
A crowd of 12,955 fans, braving
below-50 degree temperature saw
the final games of the season,
boosting Detroit's total paid ad-
tendance for 80 games to 1,397,-
The Chicago White Sox divided
a twilight-night double header
with the St. Louis Browns here
tonight when Joe Haynes hurled
an eight-hit 4-0 shutout in the
final after Sam Zoldak had hurled
the Browns to a 4-2 victory in the
first half of the twin bill.
Only tallies off Zoldak came in
the seventh when. Bob Kennedy
and Dave Phil1ey singled and rode
home on Rudy York's triple.
