Tony Momsen, Michigan center, was named by the Football News
yesterday at the center position on its Line-of-the-Week.
Momsen, a 205-pound junior from Toledo, Ohio, was cited for hit
outstanding performance in Michigan's 13-0 conquest of Illinois at
Champaign last Saturday. Time and again Momsen made decisive
tackles while backing up the line.
The Football News also gave honorable mention to Wolverine end
Harry Allis for his excellent play in the same game.
Allis caught one of Chuck Ortmann's passes for what proved to
be the winning touchdown.
NEW YORK-Six players from
the American loop and four from
the National circuit make up the
1949,Major League All-Star team
selected for the Associated Press
by 116 members of the Baseball
Writers Association of America.
Only six of the 16 big league
clubs, three in each circuit, are
represented in the fourth annual
All-Star squad. The World Cham-
pion New York Yankees won two
berths as did the National League
Champion Brooklyn Dodgers..
HOWEVER, BOTH had to yield
to Boston's second place Red Sox,
who topped all clubs with three
representatives-Ted Williams in

Only two of the 10 men select-
ed are holdovers from the 1948
All-Star team. They are Stan
Musial, slugging Cardinal out-
fielder, and Williams. The lat-
ter is the only performer to be
elected to all four teams since
the poll was inaugurated in 1946.
No player was seleced unani-
mously. George Kell, Detroit third
baseman, who nosed out Williams
for the unofficial American League
batting title by a fraction of a
percentage point, was named on
all but three ballots to win the
third base post hands down. Wil-
liams missed out on four of the
116 ballots cast.

COACH BIGGIE MUNN has
been keeping all his players on the
doubtful list out of the fray for the
last few games, nursing them
along in hopes they would be
ready for this big one. The strategy
appears to have worked.
And in addition, there were no
injuries from the 62-14 past-
ing of Temple last weekend.

From all indications it appears
that Michigan has regained its
reputation for impregnable foot-
ball defense, much the same as
enjoyed by the championship
squads of 1947 and 1948.
It is generally accepted that
Lloyd "Dutch" Heneveld has been
one of the major factors in the re-
surgence of Bennie Oosterbaan's
"brick wall" platoon. Yet Hene-
veld is probably one of the most
underrated of the current Wolver-
ines, in the eyes of the fans any-
wa .* * * ,
FIRST OF ALL, he's a coach's
player. Line boss Jack Blott is
really high on Dutch, even to the
point of calling him one of the
greatest guards he's seen here.
Blott says, "He's swift and con-
sistent, never letting up under any
conditions. His specialty is nailing
the ball carrier on a kickoff, and
he makes it a point to race Kemp-
that honor every Satur-
And Lloyd is a player's player
too. Michigan team members, to
a man, have only the highest re-
gard for him both as a football
competitor and as an individual.
They'll all comment that they
are proud to play alongside or
Heneveld came up via Holland
where he played end for three
years in high school. In the spring
of 1946 he realized his ambition
of coming to Michigan, breaking
in as a flank man under Fritz
Crisler. SincekCrisler was long on
ends at the time, he asked Lloyd
if he would like a crack at the

THE SOFT-SPOKEN lad moved
into that position in the fall and
is still going strong at it. In his
first collegiate game he sustained
a knee injury which sidelined him
for a month. Finally he submit-
ted to an operation on his ailing
joint the next spring and was
ready to go again.
Heneveld demonstrated his
versatility as a cog in the 1947
Rose Bowl steamroller. Although
he was not a regular, he shared
offensive guard chores with Dom
Tomasi, and helped Joe So-
boleski plug holes on defense.
"Dutch" distinguished himself
through most of that season until
the injury jinx tripped him again,
forcing the Hollander to miss the
last two games. He recovered in
time to visit Pasadena, however.
LAST YEAR Dutch came into
his own, accepting full time re-
sponsibility for the defensive left
guard assignment. But once again
his brilliant efforts were marred
by mishap, this time an injury to
his other knee. Last spring sur-
geons staged a repeat performance
on Heneveld, removing a cartilege.
This season he continues to be
a thorn in the side of opposing
backfields. H~e was especially
in evidence whenthe Wolver-
ines handcuffed Minnesota and
Illinois, to surge back into the
Western Conference title race.
Lloyd rates former Indiana
as the toughest runner he has ever
been called upon to stop.

Erben, Dufek to Play in Purdue
Clash; Heneveld Still Doubtful
For the BEST
As the Michigan football team
prepares for the invasion of a sud-
denly powerful Purdue Boilermak-
er aggregation, the question of the
physical condition of three mem-
bers of the Wolverine eleven looms
high on the list of worries of Head
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan.
Of the three, however, only
wingback Leo Koceski is consid-
ered as definitely side-lined for
Saturday's clash with the Gold and

Heneveld, who suffered a recur-
