Michigan's head football'coach
Bennie Oosterbaan has always
been known as a very modest man,
and yesterday was no exception.
He had just been named to the
Associated Press all-time All-
American football team chosen by
a poll of more than 100 of the
nation's top sports writers and
broadcasters. How did Mr. Oos-
terbaan feel about this great
s* «.*
"I THINK it is very nice. But
there are others who deserve the
honor as much as I do."
The unassuming Wolverine
Coach did admit that he was
pleased to be named at the end
position on the unique All-
American team that was being
selected in conjunction with the
contemplated Football Hall of
Fame at New Brunswick, New
He and the other end, Ala-
bama's fabulous Don Hutsog, au-

field. He had a sharp sense of
timing and large.sure hands. The
Friedman to Oosterbaan combina-
tion is almost legendary in Big
Ten history, and with Benny
Friedman throwing to him, Oos-
terbaan even made the tough ones
look easy.

in 1869. * * iw
OOSTERBAAN said that it was
by no means his greatest thrill
in football, and that the real
thrills come from playing the
game. Possibly he was remember-
ing his own career here as an out-
standing grid star in 1925-26-27,
when he gained acclaim as one of
the greatest all-around athletes
developed in the Midwest.
The, Michigan mentor won
nine letters in football, basket-
ball, and baseball, but devoted
most of his time to the gridiron,
and was an All-American
choice in all three years of com-
petition. It is generally agreed
that Oosterbaan was so gifted
an athlete that he could have
been a standout in any sport.
He is remembered as one of the
greatest pass receivers and was
always perfectly relaxed on the+

turned down several professional
offers in order to become an as-
sistant to Michigan's immortal
coach, the late Fielding H. Yost,
and he has remained at Michigan
ever since.
He rose from freshman coach
to varsity end director, and four
years ago was named Fritz Cris-
ler's number one assistant and
backfield coach. When Crisler
surprised everyone .by resigning
as head coach three years ago,
the shy, modest Oosterbaan was
rewarded with the top job.,
Since Crisler during the previ-
ous year, 1947, had won the Big
Ten Championship by winning
every game, was named "Coach of
the Year" as well as winning the
Rose Bowl game, it was felt that
Oosterbaan would have a hard
time filling his shoes.
* * *
BENNIE, however, fooled them
all. His 1948 Wolverine football
edition was similarly unbeaten,
took the Big Ten title, and the na-
tion's sportswiriters acclaimed him
as "Coach of the Year."
In 1949, Michigan under Oos-
terbaan shared the Conference
Crown with Ohio State. Last
season his Wolverine team won
not only their 3rd consecutive
championship under him, but
went out to the Rose Bowl and
beat California 14-6.
In view of this great record, it
is only fair to say that Oosterbaan
was showing similar 'greatness in1
the coaching field just as he shined
on the gridiron.

Three records fell as Williams
house, of West Quad, annexed the
Residence Halls Track Champion-
ship with 22 points at Yost Field
House last night.
Prescott house was runner-up
with 19 point total, while Chica-
go House finished third with a 9%/
point total.
9 -* * , .
Jack Williams, of Williams house,
broke his own mark in the mile
run with a new record of 4:46.3;
Dale Brown, also of Williams, set
a new mark of 55.5 seconds for
the 440 yard dash eclipsing the
old record by a scant tenth of a
second; and Howard L-Ierance
copped the high jump for Win-
chell house with a very good 5'11"
leap to shatter the old mark of
John Biery, Prescott, sprint-
ed to first place in the 60 yard
dash in 6.7 seconds, and judges
awarded Richard Dolnics first
in a much disputed high hurdle
In the latter event Vic Bouck-
aert, of Williams, was leading un-
til he stumbled a yard in front
of the wire to drop to second
among the timber toppers.
'Williams Wins
Team Crown
In Paddleball
Williams House continued its
dominance of I-M dormitory com-
petition as it won the paddleball
championship yesterday afternoon
beating Hayden, 3-0.
The West Quadders won all three
matches to take the title. In the
first singles, Cliff Faye won over
Hayden's Dick McBride, sweeping
both games.
*. * *
BOB BARD won the second
singles match as he beat Ron
Hunt, again taking both games.
The doubles matches proved
closer but Williams still won,
taking the set by winning two
out of the three games.
Ron Lalond and Gene Albin pro-
vided the victorious duo for the
Dorm athletic leaders. Ray Green
and Tony Paparella were the los-
ing pair for Hayden.
It was William's seventh dorm
crown of the year.

BARR BRAMAN racked up a
first for Adams house when he
'topped the half milers with a
2:15.2 run, and then Vic Bockaert
came back to take first in the
broad jump after his heartbreak-
ing loss earlier in the hurdles.
Jack Williams just missed be-
ing a double winner when How-
ard Liverance jumped to vic-
tory for Winchell. Williams
went above the old record, but
lost out' to Liverance's soaring
5'11" leap.
Winning the mile was .old stuff
to Williams as he won the cross
country title last fall.

GREENE'S Jim Moore vaulted
to victory with a 10'6" height to
win easily over runner-up Jack
Raymond's of Chicago house, who
racked up a 9'6" vault. Joe La-
Tendresse, A n d e r s o n White,
Chuck Clarke, and Jack Williams
all tied for third at 9'4".

Tigers Commence Northward
Trek with 30-Player Squad

// Crew-cuts

i. Personality cuts
- Spring is here -
The Daseola Barbers
Liberty near State

was getaway day for the Detroit
Tigers. The 30 survivors of more
than six weeks of spring training
packed their bags and started
northward for Detroit and the
American League opener with the
Cleveland Indians April 17.
There isn't much here the Tigers
can look back to with satisfaction.
The club played 16 games in
Florida and won only four-only
one from an American League
Johnny Lipon probably have a
little self satisfaction as the Lake-
land stay ends.
Lipon is the batting star this
spring. He's improved with every
game and currently leads the

club with a .351 average. His 20
hits include a homer and six
doubles for 29 bases. His 14 RBI's
also lead the team.
Kolloway is the second ranking
Tiger in the matter of base hits.
He's also second in total bases and
second among the regulars in bat-
ting averages.
THE APPARENT lack of hitting
by other members of the club
hasn't worried Manager Red Rolfe
too much. He feels that the sound
hitters-such as outfielder Hoot
Evers -will soon get around to
regular form.
