The Michigan golf team, will
probably face its toughest non-
conference opposition of the 1952
season when they take on the de-
fending MIAA Conference cham-
pionsrAlbion on the local course
A week ago the Britons handed
a 11-5 loss to Kalamazoo College
for the Albion squad's fourth
league victory and its seventh
straight win this season. Albion's
Charlie Mohl, playing in the num-
ber one spot, led the way with a
low score of 68. Al Nichols posted
a 74 in his number two position
to aid the Albion cause.
COACH Maynard Aris, in addi-
tion to Mohl and Nichols, has
three other lettermen from last
year who have helped considerably
in the Briton's bid for their second
consecutive MIAA title. They are
Larry French, Jack Lewis and
Ronald Carstone, all f whom
have broken 80 in meets this year.
Leading the newcomers of the
squad are Jim Martin, Don Car-
mien and John Walker. All
three men are veterans with
tournament experience, but are
lacking the know-how of col-
legiate match play.

meyer plans to use his usual line-;

Michigan's Blue squad outclass-
ed the Whites, 36 to 0, in the final
scrimmage of the spring grid drills
yesterday at Ferry Field.
Boasting a majority of the
team's experienced performers,
the Blue aggregation overpowered
the Whites with an excellent dis-
play of offensive and defensive
AFTER A scoreless first quar-
ter, the Blue team initiated the
scoring when Norm Canty, sopho-
more tailback, raced 40 yards to
a touchdown The White team
also began to move, on passes to
Leo Schlict and the running of
Perry Gagelis, but they were un-
able to cross the goal line.
Tackle Art Walker set up the
second tally when he blocked a
kick to give the Blues possession
on the White 20 yard line.

DUNCAN MacDonald, outstand-

the game's final scores with passes

One of the most encouraging
features of the game was the
fine performance by a group of
hard running young backs, in-
cluding Canty, Kress, Stilstra,
Gagelis, and Fred Baer.
Baer's powerful fullback thrusts
were a big factor in the Blue of-
fense, indicating that the La-
Grange, Illinois, freshman should'
figure prominently in plans for
the fall campaign.
CANTY AND Don Evans saw
only limited service on the offense,;
but both racked up sizeable gains1
in their few ball carrying attempts.
The tailback trio of Canty, Kress,
and Evans also held down spots
in the defensive backfield for the.
Ted Topor, husky letterman
quarterback, showed much im-
provement in the ball handling
department. He shared the sig-
nal calling duties for the Blues
with Duncan MacDonald.
In the White backfield quarter-
back Dick Fisher and fullback
Perry Gagelis carried the offen-
sive burden. Gagelis, an Ann Ar-
bor product, was a consistent
ground gainer and connected on
several fine passes.

Gene Knutson, junior end from
Beloit, Wis., was named yesterday
as the winner of the Meyer W.
Morton Award as the most im-
proved player during spring foot-
The trophy, awarded primarily
on the basis of attendance, atti-
tude, improvement and varsity
possibilities, was announced by
Coach Bennie G. Oosterbaan at
the end of spring grid drills.

STRONGEST competition for
the award came from Fred Baer,
Don Dugger, Ted Topor, Norm
Canty and John Veselenak.
The six foot four inch per-
former, who suffered a broken
leg which kept him out of last
year's spring drills, won his first

He saw most of his action as
An outstanding high school
gridder, Knutson possesses natural
speed and a talented pair of pass

THE HANDSOME Morton tro-
phy has had a long and interest-
ing history since its inception in1
Originally named the Chicago1
Alumnus Award, it was first pre-
sented at the annual football
banquet in the Union during1
Meyer W. Morton, '12, made the
presentation, as well as all sub-

death in 1947. The prominent
Chicago alumnus explained the
purpose of the award during the
HE ASSERTED, "The idea of
presenting this trophy is the re-l
sult of the Chicago Alumni's at-
tempt to maintain enthusiasm
and interest in Michigan athletics.
"The reason that the award isf
made during the spring train-
ing season," continued Morton,
"is that in the fall the glamourI

SOUTH BEND-A surprisingly
strong Notre Dame tennis squad
donwed the Wolverines, 7-2, at
South Bend yesterday to hand the
netters their second setback of
The Irish showed no mercy as
they swept all but one of the
singles events and continued with
wins in two of the three doubles
* * *
MIKE SCHWARTZ was the only
Michigan player to escape un-
scathed in singles play. Matched
against Matt Tuite in the number
two spot, Schwartz breezed
through his first set, winning, 6-1.
Tuite came back in the second
set, however, which fell to him,
6-2. The game advantage in the
long third set reversed hands sev-
eral times before the verdict went
to Schwartz, 8-6.
The only other Wolverine vic-
tory came in the number three
doubles match, which was just
squeezed in under the lip of
darkness. A combination of
Gene Barrack and Jim Holtz
trounced Bill Reale and Charles
Gallagher, 6-3, 6-3.
Michigan's senational freshman
Al Mann proved no match for Ken
Angyal, a junior from Detroit,
who swept through two easy 6-3
sets for the win.
IN THE NUMBER three singles
slot, Barrack gave Roy Smith a
close fight in the first set before
bowing 7-5, buthcould not recover
in the second set which he also
dropped, this time 6-2.
Jay Webb faced the only re-
maining player from last year's
Notre Dame team, which the
Wolverines trounced by an iden-
tical score, 7-2. Webb fell easy

tain of the Irish team, 6-3, 6-3,

"However, in the spring, when
the real development takes place,
this incentive is lacking. We hope
that our trophy will provide it."
AFTER MORTON'S death, the
trophy was renamed Meyer Mort-
on award in his honor.
Ray Baer, great Wolverine
guard was the initial recipient
of the award. Baer, honored as
a freshman, broke into the
famous Oosterbaan - Friedman
1926 team during mid-season
and established himself as regu-
lar right guard soon afterwards.
His rugged line play brought
him both Big Ten and All-Ameri-
can honors in 1928, thus initiat-
ing a high standard for all sub-
sequent winners of the Morton

HOWEVER, LATER winners
proved equal to the task by dis-
tinguishing themselves in Big Ten
competition. George Rich, 1926
recipient, was elected team cap-
tain during the 1929 campaign,
while 1932 winner Herman Ever-
hardus led the league, then called
the Big Nine, in scoring in 1932.

All-Americans Al Wistert, 1947,
and Merv Pregulman, 1942.
Linebacking Roger Zatkoff took
the trophy in 1950 and Don Dufek
and Leo Koceski won it in 1949
and 1948 respectively.
Legal difficulties prevented Du-
fek and Koceski from receiving
their trophies after their respec-
tive spring training seasons. Mort-
on left a provision in his will to
cover the expenses involved in
purchasing the award.
However, the will was involved
in a legal squabble, and it wasn't
