h~er Peterson nor Eldridge is
ched to the tailback slot.
te - quarterback Bill Bill-
- may be able to solve two
Josterbaan's problems. Bennie
needs a punter to replace
ly Teninga and a signal caller
pack up Bill Putich, the only
rning letterman at quarter.
Whines may find opportun-
to play ahead of reserve
ard winners Pete Palmer and
ry Burns by virtue of his
Mting prowess.
ounding out the backfield is
back, Don Dufek, leading scor-

er for the Wolverines in 1949, who
is certain to get the starting as-
signment on the offensive squad.
However, the loss of Dick Kemp-
thorn, probably the greatest de-
fensive fullback in modern foot-
ball, will be hard-felt.

baan will call on rugged Roger
Zatkoff, 210-pound sophomore
who was picked as the most im-
proved player during spring prac-
tice. Late in the drills, Zatkoff
was working offensively as a cent-
er, but will see action primarily
as a linebacker next fall.
Tony Momsen, Dick Farrar
and Carl Kreager are returning
letterwinners at center, but all
are lacking in experience. At
tackle, captain Al Wahl, Tom
Johnson, Bill Ohlenroth and

John Hess all return to action as
do guards Al Jackson, Jack Pow-
ers and Jim Wolters. Outstand-
ing centerline prospects are Tom
Kelsey, letter-winning end swit-
ching to guard, and a pair of
sophomores, Bob Timm and
Dick Strezewski.
Standout new ends are Lowell
Perry, Bud Reeme and Merrit
Green, all sophomores; and Dave
Ray and Fred Pickard, reserve
award winners last fall. Lettermen
ends Harry Allis, Les Popp, and
George Sutherland round out the
list of prospects for Oosterbaan's
1950 grid aggregation.
There you have it - the op-
portunities are inspiring; but the
schedule is brutal and material
prospects are dimmed by the fact
that needed depth must be pro-
vided by an unpredictable squad

of green reserves and untried

a strong bid to bring at least
one of those cherished trophies
here this coming season. The
first year men, coupled with
holdovers from last season's
team, should make for the
strongest outfit in the Confer-
ence in 1951.
To bolster the newcomers, Lo-
ken will have returning Buchan-
an, Barthell, Ettl, Jeff Knight,
Wally Nieman, Fred Thompson,
and Bob Wyllie.
They should make the greatest
gymnastics team ever!

regular season, and depending in
what class Planck wrestles.
* * *
KEEN WILL probably wrestle
Planck into the unlimited class
permanently and will keep Po-
wers, if available, at 165, thus
leaving the 175 pound class to be
filled by a new Sophomore, proba-
bly Roger Zatkoff of gridiron
fame, or Harold Holtz, as both
showed well for Bob Betzig's
freshman squad last season.
In the lighter weights, Keen
will probably move both Nelson
and Space up one class, letting
Space wrestle in the 145 pound

division and Nelson in the 136
pound group. Replacing Nelson
at 128 will probably be Jack
Gallon, a sophomore from To-
ledo, who showed great promise
with the frosh team.
The 121-pound clas is wide-open
as Keen duly contemplates the
lack of experienced featherweights,
both in old varsity and new soph
grapplers. Brad Stone who wrest-
led a few dual meets at that weight
last season is leading contender
for that position but Keen re-
gards Stone as far from satisfac-
tory against experienced competi-
tors and will try to develop a win-
ning sophomore at that weight, al-
though the new crop is meager.
IN OVERALL team strength,
Michigan should again have a
well-balanced dual meet squad,

such as the one which won all
but one Conference dual meet
last season and tied for the Big
Ten dual meet title with Illinois.
However, the 1951 team may
again lack individual stars and
thus will have a tough battle
for top laurels in the Conference
meet held in March, in which
all schools participate in the
battle for individual champion-
ships and the team title won
last year by Purdue.
Michigan finished in a tie for
third with Minnesota, as the Boil-
ermakers ran away with the crown
and OSU squeezed into second
place one point ahead of the Go-
phers and Wolverines.

defeat Wolverine title hopes is
the entrance of a perenielly strong

Michigan State squad into Con-
ference grappling competition for
the first time.
However, the "magician of
the mats," as he is called by ad-
miring colleagues looks to 1951
with hopeful eyes, knowing that
the spirit anq knowledge which
he musters into his wrestlers
may lead them to great heights
unexpected even by their men-
tor. He has seen it happen be-
fore with Michigan squads,
which had less potential than
the 1951 aggregation, but like
the present one had the advan-
tage of being taught by one of
the best.
As Keen himself puts it. "Give
me a bunch of kids who are will-
ing to work, learn the sport and
put their heart into wrestling and
they'll go places."
