HE RECENT ANNOUNCEMENT that Ivan Williamson will replace
Harry Stuhldreher as head football coach at Wisconsin brings
to mind that there are now four-five, if you put Whitman College
out in Walla Walla, Wash., in the big time-formner Wolverine gridders
piloting major collegiate football squads.
Williamson, who is not new to the coaching game, Michigan's
Bennie Oosterbaan, Harvard's Art Valpey, Wesleyan's Norm Daniels,
who was a teammate of Williamson, and Dave Strong, Whitman,
make up the big five who once wore the Maize and Blue and are
now showing their charges how they did it back in the old days.
Stuhldreher, who will remain at Wisconsin as athletic direc-
tor, was given the heave-ho because the Badger students felt his
coaching was not what it should be. It seemed like a raw deal
since Stuhldreher had some pretty good years at Madison, includ-
ing the 1947 season when the Badgers fell only to the attacks
of top-heavy Michigan, Minnesota and California,
Be that as it may, the choice of Ivy Williamson, who leaves
Lafayette to take the job, seems sound, even though it was made
after Bud Wilkinson, highly successful Oklahoma boss, turned down
an offer by Wisconsin.
The former Michigan star, who captained Michigan's National
Championship club in 1932, winning posts on several all-Conference
and All-America teams in the process, led Lafayette through a
successful campaign in '48. His Leopards lost only two games-to
powerful Army and Rutgers-while winning seven, and led all Pehn-
sylvania colleges in scoring.
Incidentally, in his three year stint at Michigan, which began
in 1930, Williamson played in 27 games, breaking into the line-up
in the first contest of the 1930 season when end Bill Ilewitt broke
his ankle. In those three years, the Wolverines lost only one game
(to Ohio State, 20-7, in '31) and tied two. With 24 victories under
his belt in those years, Williamson is another Michigander
brought up in the winning tradition. It will be interesting to watch
his Badgers next year as they attempt to get back into winning
In 1932, when Michigan was undefeated in eight games, William-
son was known as a "Saturday player." Only three or four times
during the season did the captain run through scrimmage during the
regular practice sessions. It was revealed at the close of the season
that he had sustained a serious leg injury early in the campaign and
shunned practice in an attempt to avoid further injury.
In spite of the lack of practice, the Michigan flanker did all right
for himself. In a hard-fought contest wiht Princeton, Ivy blocked a
Tiger punt which center Charlie Bernard scooped up and carried
over for one of the two Wolverine TD's. The final score was 14-0,
Michigan. Williamson called that play the biggest thrill of his playing
Talking about Michigan grads who are now in the coaching
game, Minnesota and Notre Dame deserve some sort of recognition
Twelve Irish alums and nine Gopher formers are now toting whistles
for colleges from coast to coast, to set the pace in that division.
The Irish grads who are now coaching include Brown, Auburn;
Walsh, Bowdoin; Gavin, Dayton; Anderson, Iowa; Sheeketski,
Nevada; Mullins, St. Ambrose (Iowa); Devore, St. Bonaventure
(N.Y.); Kuharich, San Francisco; Smith, Lafayette; Enright,
South Carolina; Schwartz, Stanford; and, of course, Leahy.
The Minnesotans are Fitch, Augustana (South Dakota); Hass
Carleton College; Svendsen, Hamilton College (N.Y.); Wells, Jame
Milliken (Ill.); Munn, Michigan State; Kostka, North Dakota State;
Wilkinson, Oklahoma; Solem, Springfield College; and the old Gopher
himself, Bernie Bierman..
Though Stuhldreher is a graduate of Notre Dame (he 'quarter-
backed Kn\ite Rockne's famous Four Horsemen back in the twenties)
and is now athletic director at Wisconsin, Harry Junior is coming
to Michigan. And reports from Kiski Prep (the same school Bob
Mathias, Olympic decathlon champion, attends) say Stuhldreher is a
fine football prospect. At five foot ten and 185 pounds, Junior is'bigge
than Pop was when he was toting for the Green.

Michigan Reveals
Grid Duhcat Prices
H. O. "Fritz" Crisler announced
yesterday the completed ticket
price schedule for the six game
football card in Michigan Sta-
:ium next fall.
Tickets will be on the same
basis as last year-$3.60, tax in-
,luded-for every game except
the Army game. Tickets for that
game will cost $4.80 and the sea-
son tickets are priced at $22.80.
The boost in price of tickets
for the Army game will help to
defray the cost of bringing a

''I lMICHIGAN pool will bring
back stirring memories to the big
blond natator who was afraid of
water as a kid.
It was just a little less than a
year ago that he splashed his
way to a world's record during
the NCAA tournament here,
turning in an amazing 2:14.7
timing in the 200-'yd breast-
And when he hauled himself
out of the pool, Dr. Edward Mar-

IT WAS THE second time in
two months that Verdeur had
broken the world's record in his
specialty and it was no coinci-
dence that the man who chased
him to the record both times was
Michigan's Bob Sohl.
Sohl, who co-captains this
year's Wolverine squad, was
good enougth to place third in
the Olympic breaststroke and in
a 25-yard pool such as Michi-
gan's he ranks as Verdeur's
most potent opposition.

In answer to, the multitudi-
nous comments concerning the
techniques Michigan used in
winning Monday's contest with
Wisconsin, McCoy maintained
that the stall the Wolverines
put on in the latter stages of
the game was very much a ,part
of basketball.
"What's the difference be-
tween doing it at the end of the
game with Harry and Pete, and
having Supey do the same thing
all through the game? When he
beats his man the crowvd goes
wild, when we do it at the end of
the game they boo."
McCOY shrugged his shoulders
and shook his head. lie contin-
ued with, "when a football team
has a slim lead, they get up slow-
ly from the last play, use the full
25 seconds to get the next play
started, and then the quarterback
just plows into the line."
Regardless of the validity or
the spectator interest in the
type of ball displayed by IMichi-
gan, it was a definite necessity
in the Wisconsin contest.
