A1 bit of advice
from old Santa
With only three letter winnersp
on hand, a general rebuilding pro-a
gram is underway as the gymnas-
tic team begins preparations for
the 1952 season.
Coach Newt Loken faces the dif-
ficult task of finding a replace-
ment for three-time NCAA tram-
poline champ Ed Buchanan and
four other departed members of
last years team.
* * *
THE SQUAD is headed by Cap-
tain Connie Ettl and letter win-
ners Stick Davidson and Don
Hurst. A good looking crop of
sophomores is on hand along with
two fine freshman prospects to
brighten the futures picture.
The task of filling Buchanan's
big shoes in the popular trampo-
line event appears to rest with
Hurst. As a junior last season
Hurst saw considerable action.
Davidson is expected to aid on
the trampoline besides perform-1
ing as top man on the parallelt
A big boost was given the teamI

ble after a year of inactivity due
to transferring from the Univer-
sity of Chicago. Erley is a flashy

verines much needed strength in

land and Remo Boilia, are slated
to perform on the sidehorse and
trampline, respectively. Both
worked with the team last season.
Coach Loken is looking for-
ward to great things from a
quartet of sophomores, Marv
Johnson, Lee Krumbholz, Harry
Lucks, and Dick Bergman. These
men are counted to comprise
much of the depth of the team.

NEW YORK-01--Eddie Stanky
told manager Leo Durocher of the
New York Giants yesterday he
"would like very much" to man-
age the St. Louis Cardinals but
only if he could get a three-year
Durocher telephoned his scrappy
second baseman at his home in
Fair Hope, Ala., and asked him
point blank whether he wanted
the Cardinal job.
* * * .
"I want it very much," answered
"We won't stand in your way,"
Leo assured him. "Mr. Stone-
ham (Horace Stoneham, Presi-
dent of the Giants) is anxious
to do everything in his power to
make you happy. He regards
you as a valuable piece of prop-
erty, however, and feels he is
justified in asking for a fair
"As far as I am concerned,"
added Leo, "You're still my regu-
lar second baseman. "You're still
the guy to beat for the job. If I
let you go, I think we ought to be
Stanky then told Durocher to
speak to President Fred Saigh of
the Cardinals in his behalf, asking
for a three-year pact provided the
two clubs agree on the trade which
would make Stanky the Redbirds

three seasons, but during his ten-

The new mentor hit the jackpot
right off the bat, guiding his 1928-
29 squad to a conference cham-
pionship and the most successful
campaign ever recorded in Wol-
verine hoop history.
PACED BY Captain Ernie Mc-
Coy, who was selected as guard
and captain on the 1929 All-
Conference team, Michigan piled
up an enviable 14-2 won and lost
record, capturing ten of twelve Big
After losing the season's open-
er to Michigan State, the Maize
and Blue triumphed in nine
straight ball games before bow-
ing by three points to Illinois.
Included in this streak were vic-
tories over intersectional rivals
Penn, Penn State and Cornell.
In a real down-to-the-wire fin-
ish, Michigan defeated Wisconsin
in the final game of the year to
gain a tie with the Badgers for
the title laurel. The Wolverines
led at half-time, 22-20, and in the
second period held the Wisconsin
five to only two points for a 37-22
1929-30 saw the Wolverines gar-
ner six out of ten Big Ten tussles
for a third place finish behind
Purdue and Wisconsin.

NEW YORK--P)-Ted Williams
came off the market and the Am-
erican League voted unlimited
night baseball yesterday as the
majors swung into their winter
Williams was taken off the Red
Sox trading list by manager Lou
Boudreau, who told a press con-
ference, "Williams definitely will
remain at Boston."
In voting unlimited night ball,
the American junked the old
rule that forced a visiting team
to agree to only four night games
in each city. They could consent
to more but could be forced to
play only four.
Under the new rule a visiting
club must play at night whenever
the home team wants-except on
getaway day or Sunday. In addi-
tion the clubs will continue to re-
spect an agreement with the play-
ers not to schedule night games
before doubleheaders or double-
headers the day before a night
pivotman was chosen for the
second time on the Associated
Press All-Conference squad.
Highlights of Veenker's second
year as coach included a 51-9
trouncing of Albion, and a 45-26
romp over Indiana, the worst de-
feat that the Hoosiers had suf-
fered in seven previous years of
conference play. Seventeen accur-
ate free throws out of 20 attempts
eased the Wolverine road to vic-
tory in the Indiana fracas.
VEENKER'S 1930-31 charges
brought home 13 wins in 17 out-
ings, while finishing in a second
place Big Ten deadlock with Min-
nesota and Purdue.
The veteran five outscored
their opponents by 178 points,
running up a 15-0 lead over
Wesleyan on New Year's Eve be-
fore winning 46-19, and holding
Michigan Normal to one field
goal in a 46-8 massacre.
Seven successive victories at the
dlose of the schedule gave Veen-
ker a three year total of 36 victor-
ies against only 11 defeats.
