Big Nine Swimmers Rule

Western Conference schools
proved conclusively once again
that they have a virtual monopoly
on the nation's finest swimming
talent as they piled up 137 out of
a possible 220 points at the NCAA
swimming meet last weekend.
The Big Nine pulled down ten
of a possible twelve first places and
they were deprived of a share of a
thirteenth by a judge's decision ...
four out of five judges called the
150-yard individual medley a tie
between Keeith Carter of Purdue
and LaSalle's Joe Verdeur ... but
the fifth picked Verdeur and the
big Philadelphian thus got the
nod.

AFTER RETURNING from the
Big Nine ieet, Wolverine coach
Matt Mann predicted that Keith
Carter would beat Verdeur in the

in the tournament.
The three-day meet was chock
full of surprises . . . No. 1 was Ver-
deur's upset, of course . . . then
there was the failure of Yale's Al
Ratkiewich to qualify for the
backstroke finals . . . and Bob

50-yd. free style field . . Michi-
gan's Ralph Trimborn was anoth-
er surprise placer, picking up fifth
in the low board diving.

BIGGEST SURPRISE of the
meet,however, was the announce-
ment that the College Coaches As-
sociation of America had named
Wally Ris as the Collegiate Swim-
mer of the Year.. . Bill Smith and
Carter, were thought to be the
leading candidates .. Ris was hav-
ing his share of trouble this year

it used to be good enough to

with second place. . . Stanford's
Ralph Sala was 12 seconds under
last year's winning time in the
1500-meters and also had to be
content with second.
MICHIGAN'S THIRD place fin-i

in the Western 'Conference meet
constitutes the worst record the
Wolverines natators have compiled
since Matt Mann took over 24

GRID HOPEFULS-Wolverine football aspirants hit the dummy
as spring football practice opened yesterday. It will continue for
a six week period.
Several Positions Still in Doubt
As SpringBaseball Tri Nears

Spring football drills got into
full swing the very first day out
as over 130 men turned out yes-
terday for Michigan's six-week
long session.
With ideal weather conditions,
head coach Bennie Oosterbaan
had the candidates dress and head
out to the south end of Ferry
Field to get familiar with the
pigskin and tackling dummies.
* * *
HE SPLIT the aspirants up into
groups and put them in the hands
of his assistant coaches. Backfield
coach George Ceithaml took a
couple of centers and all the back-
field hopefuls, and headed off to
one carner of the field for some
passing and running practice.
* Jack Blott and J. T. White
had their consignments of about
30 men each work on thej
tackling dummies, while Bill
Orwig had his men use each
other to practice on.
On hand to watch the going-
on were Wolverine greats from
other seasons. Len Ford and Bob
Mann, ends on the Maize and
Blue Rose Bowl team a couple
of years ago, talked over the rough
season of pro ball they played
last year with former Michigan
guard Bob Callahan.
Ralph Kohl and Dick Rifenburg
showed up to kibitz with the gang
they played with last season.
*. *
FROM THE MATERIAL at this
spring practice session the coach-
ing staff is going to have to find
the men to fill the holes left in
the squad by the graduation of
eleven of Michigan's varsity.
Although Oosterbaan has 22
lettermen returning, plus two
from the 1945 team, he. has a
tremendous job of rebuilding to
do. The losses left the Wolver-
ines weak at the offensive
guards and tackles, at the ends,

at defensive center, and espe-
cially at quarterback.
Bill Bartlett seems to be the.
outstanding prospect for the sig-
nal calling position, but John
Ghindia is another strong con-
tender. Wally Teninga, the squad's
finest punter, is also a possibility.
He played at half last year, but
has played every backfield posi-
tion and might fit the hole left
vacant by the graduation of Pete
Elliott.
*, * *
THE TACKLE POSITION has
three veterans of last year's squad
and another letterman back from
three seasons ago. One of the de-
fensive guard slots will of course
be held down by Captain Al Wis-
tert, third in the family to be
All-American at Michigan.
Al Wahl, who became a main-
stay in the Wolverine line last
fall as a sophomore, and Jim
Atchison will be working at the
tackle positions, along with
Gene Hinton, who played on the
1945 squad.
The loss of Don Tomasi and Stu
Wilkens leaves the offensive guard
positions particularly weak. Lloyd
Heneveld and Don McClelland are
the returning lettermen who seem
to be the top candidates for the
wide open positions,
HARRY ALLIS, Irv Wisniewski,
Ozzie Clark, and Bob Hollway will
be fighting it out to replace grad-
uated Dick Rifenburg, Ed Mc-
Neill, and Donn Hershberger, at
the end positions.
The center prospects list only
one letterman, Bob Erben, from
last season. Carl Kreager, a bull-
like six-foot four junior, looks like
a good bet for the position, along
with Tony Momsen, a letterman
from the 1945 team.

With the opening game of the
season only five days away, several
starting positions on the baseball
team are yet undecided.
Coach Ray Fisher, in his 28th
year at the helm, will leave early
Thursday morning with his picked
squad for Washington, D.C., where
they will tangle with Georgetown
University on Saturday, April 1.

Raymond and Pete Palmer are the
only ballplayers definitely on the
list.
Hal Morrill appears to be
about the best bet at present at
first base because of his superior
fielding, and yesterday in an in-
tra-squad game he rapped out
a home-run and single to lead
the hitting attack for bothsides.
Capt. Raymond and Fryling
contributed a double and single
apiece to the attack.

terday's scrimmage. "Bill Taft

now, although that doesn't nec-
essarily mean he will start on the
Micllef Takes
Third Fencing
Title in Week
Ed Micllef has done it again.
Michigan's fencing ace battled
his way to his third title in a
week by taking the state Interme-
diate Epee Championship Sunday,
in Detroit.
MICLLEF had previously taken
the state intercollegiate and in-
termediate foil crowns last week-
end.
Sunday's meet, at Saint Clair
Recreation Center, attracted
ten entries from various parts
of the state.
Runner-ups to the Scimitar
Club captain were William Pierson
and John Probert, both represent-
ing Michigan State.
There will be a meeting of
the "M" club tonight at 7:30 in
the "M" club room. All under-
graduate "M" club men are
urged to attend.

MINOR INJURIES plague Wol-
verine camp somewhat, for Ko-
brin is hindered by a sore throwing
arm, promising sophomore out-
fielder Leo Koceski favors a bum
leg, and Palmer was spiked in the
leg in Friday's scrimmage, al-
though all should be ready to go
against Georgetown.

kin also looks like an effective
flinger, but southpaw Dick Smith
has not yet reached his peak
form."
Freshman baseball practice
will begin Monday, the day af-
ter spring vacation, and not
this week as reported in Sun-
day's Daily, according to Coach
Don Robinson.
