HAL HAD BEEN showing great
improvement in the 1945 and '46
seasons and was expected to figure
prominently in the 1947 team. A
broken leg he received while play-
ing in a summer baseball league
prevented him from seeing action.
Raymond received high re-
commendations for the post by
both line coach Jack Blott and
his former coach, Fritz Crisler,
based upon his earnestness and
application while working under
their tutelage.
Blott had great praise for the
five-foot-eight, 170-pounder, who
kept working against the rugged
Big Nine competition despite his
small stature. The Michigan line
coach said, "he is one of the best
guards for his size Michigan ever

High School's baseball team
scored 67 runs in a seven-inning
game last season. It jumped into
the news with another unusual
feat yesterday.
A schedule mixup found the
Athens Trojans with two games on
their hands the same afternoon.
Having only 17 players, Athens
sent nine men into one game and
the remaining 'eight and the
manager into the other.
Both teams won. In addition, in-
fielder Don Seagraves made an
unassisted triple play.

Hal follows in the footsteps
of another Michigan gridder,
Hank Fonde. Fonde, who guid-
ed the "U" High eleven to six
wins and two losses last season,
resign the Cub position several
months ago in favor of a simi-
lar job at the rival city school,
Ann Arbor High.
Raymond won't officially as-
sume his duties until June, so thatr
he will be able to save his eligi-
bility for the remainder of the
Wolverine baseball season.

ALONG WITH his grid duties
Tubby will assist in the coaching
of "U" High's basketball squad and
also help in administering some
of the spring sports programs. As
far as classroom work is con-
cerned he will teach in the school's
physical education department.

Michigan will once more try to

Most of the racers have not
been on a track since last fall,
which will make for some rusty
driving. Coupled with the fact
that there are a lot of new cars

with added horsepower, the
seven events promise plenty of
thrills and excitement for fan"

Drivers from the southern part
of Michigan and Canada will be
