'M' Gridders Loaded with Line Material

VICTORIES OVER FIVE TOP conference teams last weekend es-
tablished the Michigan golf team as favorite to repeat its 1952
Big Ten crown. Coach Bert Katzenmeyer's youthful charges, playing
without the services of their number one performer, Lowell LeClair,
bowled over powerful Purdue and Ohio State among others while
bringing, their season's record to 5-2-1. LeClair was unable to leave
his job at a Willow Run automobile plant and had to spend the
weekend playing the University course.
Sophomore Andy Andrews, under league fire for the first time, did
a creditable job filling in for the veteran LeClair. His 72-hole total of
321 was fifth best among the six-man Michigan squad. Other 72 hole
totals were Bud Stevens-299, Jack Stumpfig-304, Captain Hugh
Wright-307, Tad Stanford-310, and Warren Gast-326. Top round
was turned in by Stumpfig, who fired a 69 (bad leg and all) on the
Evanston links. Next on tap for the Wolverine swingers is a dual
meeting with weak Michigan State at East Lansing Saturday.
Frosh Golfers Chosen ...
SPINNING THE SPORTS WHEEL-Assistant golf coach Rod Gram-
beau has chosen a 12-man freshman golf squad on the basis of
four rounds of play (one of them in a rainstorm and another while it
was snowing) on the University links. Included on the team are
Chuck Blackett, Dick Brenner, Milt Converse, Dick DesLauries, Don
DeYoung, Ron Dingman, Dick Harrison, Mike May, Pete McCarthy,
Bob McMasters, Dick Schacht, and Ray Zanarini. McMasters led the
qualifiers with a two-over-par 74 ... .
Speaking of freshmen, yearling baseball coach Matt Patanelli
has quite a few good prospects out for the diamond sport. The base-
ball hopefuls went through their second intra-squad game of the
season yesterday. Patanelli labels third baseman Don Benedict and
second baseman Frank Ronan as promising youngsters. Southpaw
Mark Ferelli has also shown plenty on the mound ....
Spring basketball practice winds up this Friday night with
an intrasquad game at the Intramural Building. By that time
Coach Bill Perigo will/have put the cagers through the Big Ten
limit of 20 drills . . . Lon Lund, former Michigan 9-letter man,
now clubbing the ball at a better-than .300 pace while patrolling
the Detroit Tigers outfield. Lund goes almost exclusively against
left-hand pitching. He went three-for-four and batted in two
runs as the Tigers scored their fourth win of the season Monday,
a 10-8 triumph over the New York Yankees . . .
Stunning defeats of Native Dancer on the race track and the
Michigan baseball team on a muddy field marked the sports scene
last weekend. Observers of the Run for the Roses at Churchill Downs
seem to think that the Alf Vanderbilt gray had a darn good excuse
for failing to chalk up his twelfth success in a row. A Detroit im-
port, Money Broker, bumped the Dancer going around the first turn
and later impeded the son of Polynesian in the top of the stretch.
Look for the Dancer to show his best form in the Preakness, next
event of the Triple Crown ....
No Excuses .. .
RAY FISHER'S NINE HAD FEW EXCUSES for dropping out of the
Big Ten lead. The invading Iowa squad simply outpitched and
outhit the Wolverines, who were without the services of Mary Wis-
niewski, stellar Detroit left-hander. Wisniewski had to remain on
the sidelines with a sore arm. Meanwhile timely Hawkeye hitting and
superior fielding (the Corn-staters pulled six double plays in the
doubleheader) ruined the Maize and Blue chances of keeping an un-
blemished slate. Three-run innings in each contest were enough to
defeat route-going hurlers Jack Corbett and Dick Yirkosky ... .
Next on the doeut for Michigan's bowling team in its quad-
rangular league with Michigan State, Michigan Normal and
Wayne is a Saturday afternoon meeting up at East Lansing. The
following Saturday the league-leading Wolverine entry will con-
clude its season in Detroit . . , . That pretty blond who sits
behind the home team dugout at every Michigan baseball game
is Mrs. Bill Mogk, wife of the captain, thank you . . .. Why
didn't Paul Giel pitch ;against the Maize and Blue team as adver-
tised? It seems that Gopher Coach Dick Siebert wanted to use
the standout right-hander in both games with Michigan State
the following day. Siebert planned to use Giel as a starter in the
Spartan opener and as a relief pitcher in the nightcap. As it was
the Minnesota wonderboy went all the way in both games, gaining
an even split for his efforts . . . .
Football practice diehards are raving about the progress of center
Dean Ludwig in the spring grid drills. Seems that his former weak-
ness of pivot passes has been cleared up, while his blocking and
tackling is as crisp as ever .... Freshman tailback Tom Hendricks
and quarterback Lou Baldacci have also impressed in the first back-
field unit ...
Answers to Queries . . .

(Third in a series)
Head football coach, Bennie
Gosterbaan, is fortunate to have
a wealth of seasoned material
returning to fill the guard and
tackle positions on the 1953 edi-
tion of the Wolverines.
At the present time the tackle
situation is pleasantly clouded
with five returning lettermen.
These include Art Walker, Jim
Balog, Dick Strozewski, Don Ben-
nett, and Ron Geyer, plus a num-
ber of up-and-coming hopefuls
from last year's freshman squad.
WALKER NEEDS no introduc-
tion to Michigan football fans. He
held down the defensive left
tackle slot last fall and did an
excellent job of holding would-be
ground-gainers to a minimum.
Thus far this spring Walker has
looked very good and figures to
be a top contender.
Jim Balog occupied the other
tackle post and combined with
Gene Knutson to give the Wol-
verines one of the strongest
defensive combinations in the
Big Ten last fall on the right
side of the line,
Both 'Balog and Walker of
course face the problem of ad-
justing to offensive football, but
according to line coach, Jack
Blott, they should have no
trouble as they have practiced
interchangably before.
STROZEWSKI, who has been
bothered by injuries throughout
his career, played primarily as an
offensive tackle last fall. The 205
pound senior has the size and
speed to become a standout two-
way performer if he can escape
the injury jinx which has plagued
Bennett and Geyer are both
seasoned performers who saw
considerable action as "spot"
players last fall, filling in where
needed. Both of them have been
looking good in the spring ses-
sions and should figure strongly
in the plans for next year.
The guard positions have four
returning veterans back. Heading
the list are 200 pound Dick Beison
and Don Dugger, a comparative
lightweight for college guards at
185 pounds. Ron Williams, who
saw a lot of action last fall, and
Ted Cachey are also returning.
*~ * *
BOTH BEISON and Dugger
have had experience playing both

ways and should find no trouble
adapting to the new rules.
The coaching staff has also
been experimenting with Cap-
tain Dick O'Shaughnessy at a
guard position in the hope of
making room for Dean Ludwig
at center. Currently, he is hold-
ing down one of the guard
positions and has been looking
very good.
Beison, after a year on the de-
fensive platoon, moved up to take

coming a varsity track man-

-Ed Smith
over the offensive right guard
position last fall and did a good
job. On many occasions, more-
over, he was forced to go both
ways because of a lack of ade-
quate relief.
* * *
DUGGER HAS gotten most of
his experience in a defensive role
but has shown a willingness to

learn this spring and should turn
into a top two-way competitor.
The red-haired Williams
proved an able performer last
fall on both offense and defense
as he was called on, numerous
times, to fill gaps in the Wol-
verine forward wall.' At 186
pounds, he possesses the speed
needed in the Michigan attack
and should prove a valuable as-
set to the team.
Cachey, with only limited ex-
perience, has been looking good
in spring sessions. He's a senior,
weighing 185 pounds who's ex-
pected to give a good account of
himself if he's given the chance.
* * *
Jim McCarty and Will Brown
are two freshmen prospects who
have been doing a good job this
spring and will figure in the plans
of the Michigan coaching staff
next fall. They both weigh 180
From all appearances the only
problem the Michigan coaching
staff has is picking the men. The
material is there.
