Gymnastic Squad Resumes
Rivalry After 13 Years


Returning to prominence after
a 13-year lapse in existence, the
University of Michigan Gymnasts
Team begins its first season as a
recognized sport since the fatal
swing of the depression ax pcals
In 1933.
The long uphill fight for off i-
cial standing was culminated las'.
year by the formation of the U.
of M. Gymnasts Club, a team ir
every sense of the word except foi
the sanction of the bigwigs.
Gave 26 Exhibition
Working on their own and de-
spite lack of Big Nine competition,
the athletes gave 26 exhibitions
throughout the midwest area cov-
ering over 2,570 miles on their
trips. Finally, at their last meet-
ipg of the semester, the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics saw the light and decided
Michigan had the quajity , and
quantity of material to once again
enter a squad in formal competi-
There's no doubt in anyone's
mind that the sport will really
"draw" in meets to be staged here.
:Gast year the boys provided half-
time exhibitions throughout the
cage season, thrilling the crowds
with some spectacular stunts on
the trampoline and side horse.
Intrasquad Meet To Be Held
Right now the boys are work-
ing hard to make this inaugural
year a successful one. According
to Newt Loken, the new coach
and incidentally, a former Big
Nine champion, an intrasquad
meet is going to be held at the
end of the month to enable him
to get a real "look-see" at what
the boys do under the stress of
Up to now the standouts have
been Dave Lake, Bob Willoughby,
Tom Tillman, Bob Schoendube,
Glenn Neff, Chico Kennedy,

Pauncho Saravia, Wally Neiman.
Johnny Allred and Dick Fash-
baugh. Dick incidentally, became
the first casualty on the squad
when he "missed" on a new stunt
and wound up with a cracked bone
in his wrist.
Minnesota First Meet
The season's home opener is
dated for January 17, when the
Sig Nine conference champions
.rom the University of Minnesota
move in. How the gymnasts rat
Any student who would like
to tryout for the Gymnastic
team and has any sort of ex-
perience on the trampoline,
high bars, side horse, flying
rings, parellel bars, or in tum-
bling, report to Coach Newt
Loken anytime between three
and six p.m. Monday's through
Welcome also are any men
that feel they would be inter-
ested in this sort of competi-
against the high flying titlists
should be a good index of how the
squad will fare in the Conference
championships on March 13.
According to official Big Nine
rules, each team is limited to ten
hard working gymnasts. Any num-
ber of the ten however, can enter
as many of the events he's good
enough to compete in.
Scoring System Novel
The scoring method is novel
too. Three judges evaluate each
man's performance awarding a
maximum of eight points for form
and seven for the difficulty of
the stunt. Thus, a perfect execu-
tion brings a total of 45 points.

Michigan Line
To Be Tested
By Pitt Eleven
Panthers Outplayed
Irish for First Half
Michigan's forwatrd /wall will
probably be in for its first real
shakedown inspection on Satur-
day, said Coach Fritz Crlisler yes-
terday at his weekly press confer-
ence, as his scouts reported that
Pittsburgh's line was speedy and
The outmanned Pitt eleven ac-
;ually outplayed Notre Dame for
one half last week and with any
luck at all would have held a 13-7
intermission lead, but a costly
fumble ruined their chances.
Irish Wore Pitt Down
In the fourth quarter, the Irish
wearing down process took effect
and they rolled over the tired
Crisler reported that Pitt has
thrown off all but a few scattered
"emnants of Clark Shaughnessy's
T-formation, and under new
:oach Mike Milligan, has reverted
to the Jock Sutherland single
wing, with the emphasis on power.
Michigan came out of the Stan-
ford game with only one man on
the injured list, guard Kurt
Kampe, who suffered a kidney in-
jury. Dom Tomasi, who saw no ac-
tion against the Indians, is ex-
pected to return to duty this week.
Only one Michigan man, reserve
end, Don Hershberger, played
more than half of Saturday's
game. Hershberger was in for 33
minutes, while George Johnson,
tackle, saw 28 minutes of service.
Automatic Jim Brieske had one of
his longest day's employment,
playing 26 minutes in addition to
his extra point kicking duty.
Stars Saw Little Action
Bob Chappuis and Bump Elliott,
saw 14.30, and 20.30 minutes serv-
i respectively.
HMill Receives
Martin Award
Connie Hill, three times Captain
of Michigan's hockey team has
been announced as the winner of
the Paul Martin Scholarship
This is the first year of the
award which is to be presented
annually to the Canadian student
who has the highest scholastic
standing and is in need of extra
financial help.
The fund provides $200 which
the student may use in any way
that will help him make his way
through school. To receive the
inaugural award Connie was cited
as having the highest grade of any
Canadian student in his two
years at the University.

Wild Yank 4th
Features Rizzuto

tntl-v in tha second inning. wher
they pasted the Yank starter,
Frank Shea, and his successor, Bill
Bevens, for four solid hits, includ-
ing a triple by Gene Hermanski
and a double by Johnny Jorgen-
sen. With that one outburst, Man-
ager Burt Shotton's battlers were
through for the year.
A single through third base by
Edwards in the fourth inning and
another onee-baser by Ed Miksis
after one was out in the ninth,
summed up their efforts there-
after. Bevens, the unifortunate
who lost a one-hitter during the
series, was not knocked out, but
retired for a pinch-hitter after he
had wrenched his arm on a pitch
during the fourth frame.
Yanks Get One Back
Trailing by two runs at the out-
set, the Yanks got one back in the

brace of walks and Rizzuto slashed
the first of his three hits over
third base.
Gregg settled down to retire
the Yanks in the third, but they
set a fire under the tall right-
hander in the fourth and sewed
up the series. With two down on
strikeouts and Billy Johnson on
base by virtue of a walk, Rizzuto
arched the second of his hits intol
left field, and that brought in the
juvenile, Brown, to bat for the
ailing Bevens.
Brown Comes Through
The kid slashed a hot two-bag-
ger into left on which Johnson
easily scored to knot the count.
With that, Gregg was through
and Hank Behrman strolled in.
He walked his first opponent,
George Stirnweiss, and then Tom-
my Henrich, known around the
Stadium as the "Old Reliable,"
pounded across the winning score
with a clean single into right
Thereafter, to all intents and
purposes, it was all Joe Page and
his smoking fast fall. The big
southpaw threw only one curve

Shea, 1evens, Pasted by Bumns iG
Early Slugfest; Yanks Win Game

and one slider as he mowed the
Brooklyns down. He racked up
only one strikeout, but he had the
Dodgers popping up or hitting
easy rollers, and the Yank fielders
didn't have a really hard chance
as Page broke into the winner's
circle at last.
Shotton Gets Desperate
Trying desperately to get a
rally under way. Shotton threw
three pinch-hitters into the tussle
and trotted out pitchers like a
man shelling peas, but it got him
nowhere. The Yanks scored their
fourth run off Joe Hatten in the
sixth on Clark's pinch-hit, and
added another for good measure
off Hugh Casey in the seventh
when Johnson whaled his third
triple of the series into deep left-
center field and scored on a long
fly to Aaron Robinson.

DON MURRAY-accepting congratulations and the Michigan
Daily trophy for the outstanding I-M athlete from Intramural
director, Earl Riskey.

Don Murray Awarded 'Daily'
Trophy As Finest TM Athlete

i ---I



Versatility paid dividends to Don
Murray, when he was awarded last
week the '46-'47 Michigan Daily
trophy for the best all-around In-
tramural athlete of the year.
In Thirteen Sportss
With a total of thirteen activi-
ties listed after his name in the
bulky blue I-M ledger, Murray al-
most left his closest competitor at
the starting line. He compiled an
astounding 983 points, 200 more
than second place, by entering so
many team sports for Greene
House and advancing to the top
of the ladder in practically every
According to Earl Riskey, di-
rector of Intramural proceedings,
and other staff members who have
come in contact with him, "Mur-
ray was the vital factor in help-
ing Greene House win the Resi-
dence Halls yearly championship."
Murray Gives Daggs Credit
The easy-going athlete insists,
however, that if it were not for the
house athletic manager, Leroy
Daggs, who keyed up interest and
threatened blackmail on the side,
he would never have won the sil-
ver cup.

A produce of Flint, Michigan,
"Mr. Versatile" confined his highI
school sports participation tof
games with the unheralded, and1
the same thing was true at Flint
s J.C. except for winning a letter in
basketball. The story repeats it-
self here.
Makes I-M All-Stars
In the fall of '46 the slim, six-
footer was selected at tackle on
the All-star residence halls' foot-
ball team and during the indoor
track meet, he placed second in
the broadjump and third in the
high jump. He scampered off with
.he Greene House striders as they
,on the cross country, and was
third man on the 880 yard relay
quintet. Murray admitted that
copping the relays with a better
time than the winning fraternity
mark was his biggest kick.+
From there the sports calendar
carried him into the dormitory
basketball, foul throwing, volley-
ball, swimming and waterpolo
campaigns. As a deceptive for-
ward, Murray played on a cham-
pionship Greene House basketball
squad that went through two sea-
sons undefeated.
