... back in stride
Backs Show
Well Under
Sunny Skies
Michigan's gridiron mentor Ben-
nie Oosterbaan sent sixty spring
football candidates through a rug-
ged one-hour scrimmage under a
broiling sun yesterday at Ferry
Field.
The varsity coaches alternated
several sets of backfields; all re-
volving around the quarterbacking
of letterman Ted Topor.
, *
ONE UNIT had Norm Canty at
tailback, Fred Baer at fullback and
"Junior" Stielstra at wingback.
Both Canty and Stielstra were ex-
tremely sharp on wide plays and
off-tackle smashes, while Baer ex-
hibited good driving power up the
middle.
Junior Stielstra, the slender so-
phomore speedster from Luding-
ton, has impressed the coaches
with his tricky running and glue-
fingered pass catching.
Topor piloted another quartet
composed of Don Evans at tail-
back, Rusty Swaney at wingback
and Dick Balzhiser at fullback.

By NEIL BERNSTEIN
A smooth-working University of
Michigan tennis team swept its
second home match by blanking
Western Michigan College 9-0 yes-
terday at the Ferry Field courts.
Coach Murphy's squad set the
Broncos down handily, with only
one singles and one doubles match
going three sets.
IN THE number one singles slot,
Al Mann set down Ed Foster in
two straight 6-4 sets. Mann got
off to a two game start in the
first set, lost the next four to
Foster, but came back with deadly
placements to win the next four
games and the set.
In the second set, Foster start-
ed off fast by winning the first
four contests, but in the fifth
game Mann broke through his
serve and went on to take the
next six games and the match.
Steve Bromberg had to call up
all his tennis skill to turn back
scrappy Jack Vredeveldt in the
number two match, but he downed
Vredeveldt 6-4 and 8-6.
THE WOLVERINE co-captain
took the first set in good order,
but he found himself behind 5-3
in the second stanza. He rallied
and tied it up at 5-all and then
came from the rear again to tie
it at 6 apiece. Bromberg then put
on a splendid exhibition of back
court play to take the next two
games and win the match.
Michigan's number three man,
Mike Schwartz, got into a little
trouble at first, dropping the
first four games in a row and
the first set, to Bronco Yale
Branda. However, he came back
to take the next two sets, 6-3
and 6-3, and defeat Brandt.
Gene Barrack handled the num-
ber four assignment ably in his
match against Western Michigan's
Dave Kistler. Barrack fought it
out on even terms with Kistler
for the first part of the match,
but his kill shots enabled him to
take the set, 6-4. He then went
on the offense for the second set
and took the measure of Kistler
by an easy 6-1 score.
* * *
MICHIGAN'S Jay Webb had
little trouble disposing of Bronco
Dick Hendershot in the fifth posi-

tion. He took Hendershot's meas-
ure, 6-3 and 6-1.'
In the final singles match, Jim
"Birdie" Stephens, only victor
for the Wolverines in last Sat-
urday's match with Indiana,
added another win to his record
by downing Bob Nuding 6-4 and
6-2.
The number one doubles squad,
Bromberg and Barrack, ran over
the Bronco's team of Kistler and
Bra by 6-3, 6-4 margins. The
Wolverines combined sterling rear
court work with a smashing of-
fense to take the first set handily.
* * *
WESTERN MICHIGAN came to
life midway in the second set to,
close' a 5-2 Michigan lead down
to only 5-4, but they faltered in
the last game and enabled the
Wolverines to take it and the
match along with it.
Schwartz and Mann found little
trouble in stopping Vredeveldt and
Foster, 6-3, 6-1. Mann's smooth
Kingfish!
Wally Jeffries, ace 220 and
440 free-styler of the Michigan
swimming team won an honor
on dry land last night.
At the team's annual banquet
in the Michigan Union, Jeffries,
who hails from St. Louis, Mis-
souri, was named as the new
captain of the Wolverine mer-
men. He succeeds co-captains
John Davies and Stu Elliott in
the role.
Jeffries is a junior, in pre-
medical studies and is a mem-
ber of Sphinx junior honorary
society and Sigma Chi fra-
ternity.
accuracy and Schwartz's smash-
ing attack kept the hapless Broncs
on the run for the whole match.
In the number three doubles
encounter, Stephens teamed up
with Bob Curhan to down West-
ern Michigan's Nuding and Bob
Clink. The Wolverines started
strong and took the first set by
an easy 6-1 score.
Nuding and link came back
strong in the second set and
turned on their power to take that
set 6-4. However, Stephens and
Curhan were not to be denied, and
then shut-out the Broncos, 6-0.

Sigma Alpha Mu put on an
impressive show of power yester-
day, rolling over Delta Chi 20-1
behind the combined three-hit
effort of Bart Mann and Irving
Tobocman. ,
Paul Groffsky led the Sammy
offense with three long home runs.
In other high scoring games, Alpha
Sigma Phi ran all over Theta Del-
ta Chi 20-5, and Beta Theta Pi
ripped Phi Kappa Sigma 17-5.
A neat one-hitter authored by
Dael Bock brought Theta Xi a
convincing 17-1 victory over Theta
Chi. In a close contest Jim Wat-
kins allowed Zeta Psi only three
hits to lead Delta Upsilon to a
5-4 win.

By DAN FOGEL
With a year of eligibility left,
Captain Bruce Haynam is fast on
his way to becoming ore of, the
best ballplayei's that has taken the
field for the Universfty of Michi-
gan.
The twenty-one year-old short-
stop, considered by oach Ray Fish-
er as one of the finest fieldsrs he
has ever had, is now belting the
horsehide at a .321 clip for the
season.
HAYNAM, a Cleveland Heights
resident, cames from a family of
baseball lovers. His four brothers
all have had some diamond exper-
ience. Bruce's pre-college experi-
ence comes from three years witli
the University High School in
Cleveland Heights and sandlot ball
in the Cleveland area. Bruce has
not always been a shortstop but
has also seen some duty on the
pitching mound.
Bruce is quick to point out
how much coach Ray Fisher has
helped him to improve, especi-
ally in the fielding department.
The coaching has shown divi-
dends with Haynam, showing up
in the fielding average.

Thrills have come fast and furi-
'ous to the Junior Engineering
student butthe three victories last
weekend over Ohio State, last
year's champions, and Illinois, run-
nersup in 1951, stand out for Hay-
nam. These three games in which
Bruce played brilliantly, may be
the turning point for the Wolver-
ines in their quest for another Big
Ten crown.
Bruce would like to include a
career in professional baseball in
his future plans but as of $et
nothing definite has materialized.
One thing is certain now, how-
ever, Bruce Haynam will continue
to be a scourge on the field and
at the plate for the Maize and
Blue.
