Baer, Balzhiser Contenders
For Starting Fullback Spot

* * *

After the first week of spring
football practice, some of the un-
certainties of the Michigan foot-
ball picture are beginning to clear
up.
For example, at the tailback slot
vacated by '51 Captain Bill Putich,
three candidates are successfully
competing for a starting berth on
next year's team.
* * *
DON EVANS, a 185 pound fresh-
man from Chagrin Falls, Ohio,
Ted Kress, a sophomore from De-
troit, and Norm Canty from Chi-
cago, who was sidelined last sea-
son due to injuries. In addition,
Men are urgently needed to
umpire intra-mural softball
g a m e s. Anyone interested
please call 8109.
--Bill L'Heureux
Don Eaddy and Dan Cline, who
are both out for Ray Fisher's base-
ball team, figure prominently in
Coach Oosterbaan's 1952 plans.
Fred Baer and Dick Balzhiser
are top contenders for Don Pet-
erson's old position at fullback.
Both players hail from Illinois,
the former from La Grange and
the latter comes from Wheaton.
Strong candidates for the tackle
position vacated by big Tom John-
son are freshman Art Walker,
sophomore Don Bennett and junior
Dick Strozewski.
* * *
TOP PROSPECTS to take over
Pete Kinyon's old job at guard
are sophomore Ron Williams and
junior Don Dugger. Dugger is a
letterman from last season's squad.

Outstanding candidates to replace
the graduating Jim Wolter at the
other guard position are Dick
Beison and Casimir Chomicz.
A search is also on for a ca-
pable replacement for end Fred
Pickard. Hopefuls include soph-
omores Leo Schlicht, Gene Knu-
tson, and George Dutter and
freshman John Veselenak.
Lowell Perry, who is now out for
track, will return to his familiar
left end position next season, and
there is expected to be considerable
strength and depth backing up the
Ypsilanti junior.

Michigan Netters Face Indian
In Opening Home M ect Today

Five veterans, an untested soph-
omore, and a freshman will com-
prise the Michigan lineup when
the Wolverines meet Indiana this
afternoon at 2:30 on the Ferry
Field courts in the first home
meet of the tennis season.
Coach Bill Murphy has elected
to start Al Mann, the freshman,
at No. 1 singles for the Maize and
Blue. Behind Mann comes hold-
overs S t e v e Bromberg, Mike
Schwartz, Gene Barrack, and Jay
Webb for singles berths 2-5 re-
spectively.
.* * *
ROUNDING OUT the sextet is
Jim "Birdie" Stevens, the sopho-
more, who won the No. 6 post

only Thursday by beating letter-
man Jack Smart.
For the three doubles matches
Murphy announced Bromberg-
Barrack, Schwartz-Mann, and
Stevens-Bob Curhan as his com-
binations. Curhan earned a let-
ter last year playing No. 6 sing-
les and third doubles with Bar-
rack.
Against this formidable aggre-
gation Hoosier mentor Dale Lewis
will send a team generally regard-
ed as better than his last year's
outfit that finished fourth in the
Conference tournament.
* * *
CAPTAIN BOB Burnham is slat-
ed to play No. 1 singles against
Mann. A six-foot senior, Burnham
was top man for the Hoosiers last
year. Bromberg's foe probably will
be Eli Glazer, Big Ten titlist at
No. 3 singles in 1951. Burnham and
Glazer make up the first doubles
combo.
Don McDowell, No. 5 man last
season, is another fixture for the
Cream and Crimson.
Remainder of the visiting squad
will be skimmed from freshmen
Tom Lynch and John Hironimus,
and sophomores Bob Barker and
Dwayne Gomer. Gomer and Lynch
played as a doubles team through
high school, and they probably!
will be Lewis' second duo.I
