Stevens Plays Key Role
In Drive to Golf Crown

By JIM DYGERT
When asked how many golf ti-
tles he holds, Wolverine linksman
Bud Stevens pushed his maize and
blue checkered golf cap to the back
of his head and tried to remember.
He recalled his eight years as a
caddie at Plum Hollow Golf Club
in Detroit, during which time he
won three city caddie champion-
ships, three state caddie titles, and
two other state honors. In addition,
he was a member of the Plum Hol-
low caddie golf team that captured
all-city and state championships
from '48 to '51.
s * *
STEVENS first broke into the
golf spotlight in 1948 when he won
the Michigan state caddie cham-
pionship and the Detroit District
title. He repeated as winner of
these titles in 1949, and again in
1950.
As a result of his victories in
the state championships, he
qualified for Athe national cad-
die tournament in all three
years.
Stevens also holds the '51 Michi-
gan State High School Champion-
ship, a meet that saw him shoot
his lowest score of all his title-win-
ning efforts, a 70. Completing his
long list of honors is the '49 edi-
tion of the state junior champion-
ship.
NOW A SOPHOMORE in the
College of Literature, Science, and
the Arts, Stevens already has an
impressive record as a Michigan

swinger. He walked off with the
all-campus golf title as a freshman
and is now one of the main fac-
tors in Coach Bert Katzenmeyers
plans for a second consecutive
Big Ten golf Championship.
In competition so far this
year, Stevens has displayed the
good results of his long experi-
ence.,He was the Wolverine med-
alist 'on the team's southern
training trip with a 73 against
North Carolina.
He turned in the lowest Mich-
igan score in a quadrangular meet
with Purdue, Ohio State, and Il-
linois, a 72-84-156. He shared med-
alist honors with Jack Stumpfig
with a 143 in the triangular meet-
ing against Northwestern and
Iowa.
. . *
STEVENS is attending the
University on a Standish-Evans
scholarship awarded by the West-
ern Golf Association and the De-
troit District Golf Association to
caddies.
The lowest score ever turned
in by Stevens was a 68 on his
home course, Plum Hollow. His
best on the University course
is a 69 carded on a practice
round.
He also is the possessor of the
golfer's dream, a hole-in-one,
which he accomplished with an
eight iron on a 155-yard hole.
COACH Katzenmeyer is more
than happy that Stevens will be
playing for him for two more
years. And, as Stevens pushed his
colorful cap forwardlover his curly
hair, he made it clear that the
Big Ten individual championship
is his goal. The evidence favors his
adding this title to his already im-
pressive list.

NFL Plans
To Televise
Pro Contests
PHILADELPHIA-(P)-The Na-
tional Football League Thursday
was reported on the verge of a
television deal that would bring
play-for-pay gridiron coverage to
the entire country starting with
the 1954 season.
NFL Commissioner Bert Bell
met last Monday with representa-'
tives of the 12 league clubs to dis-
cuss the television issue.
NO DETAILS of that discussion
were released except that the topic
had been TV and that the club
delegates had gone back home to
outline the plan to stockholders'
and other interested persons.
Thursday, Hugh Brown, Phila-
delphia Bulletin sports colum-
nist, said the deal calls for a
full schedule of pro football
games on TV on Saturday eve-
nings and Sunday afternoons.
Under the present NFL televi-
sion program, the loop's teams
have radio and TV rights over an
area extending out 75 miles in all
directions from the home city. 1
* * *
THAT RULE was the focal point
of a government anti-trust suit
here with the presiding judge ex-I
pected to hand down his decision
in August.
The 12 club owners were said to
have been given a set time limit
to consider the proposal and come
back with their decisions. Bell
declined comment on the reported
details of the plan.

Allen-Rumsey
Gives Annual
Athletic Award
Allen-Rumsey House of West
Quardangle presented its annual
award to the outstanding athlete
at the yearly athletic banquet
held last night.
Jack DeCou was chosen for the
honor and was presented with the
foot-high trophy by resident ad-
visor Jack Hale. In addition to
this award, trophies were present-
ed to the captains of four teams
which captured championships in
intramural sports.
BASKETBALL coach. Bill Per-
go was the main speaker of the
evening. He told the men of Allen-
Rumsey about the prospects for
next season's basketball team and
explained some of the reasons for
the failure of the Wolverines in
Big Ten competition during the
past season.
Perigo stressed the need for
a "big man" in the lineup, such
as Don Schlundt, all-American
from Indiana, who can shoot
from anywhere on the floor.
Presentations were made torTed
Oliver, J. D. Mooney, Dave Ma-
loney, and Paul Anderson, who
captained the wrestling, table ten-
nis, indoor track, and relay teams.
A gift was presented to John Cod-
well, varsity basketball player, by
the men of Allen-Rumsey in ap-
preciation for the effort and co-
operation on his part toward the
success of house athletics.

UNIVERSITY DRUG

By DICK LEWIS
A couple of sure-shooting fresh-
man guards paced the blue-shirted
varsity quintet to an 86-56 romp
over the yellow-shirted reserves at<
the Intramural Building last night
as the Michigan basketball squad,
put the finishing touches on a 20-
day spring practice session.
Tom Jorgenson and Jim Bar-
ron, two Chicago products expected
to bear the brunt of backcourt ac-
tivity for the Wolverines next sea-
son, notched 19 and 17 points re-
spectively as the winners took an
early5-0 lead and were never
headed.
JORGENSON tallied the bulk
of his 19 counters on a deft one-
handed jump shot from around
the keyhole, while Barron broke
through with a variety of shots
to rack up his total.
This accurate duo shared
scoring honors for the varsity
with three other blue shirts
who broke through for double
figures. Sophomore Paul Groff-
sky, who alternated at the for-
ward and center spots, funneled
through 16.
His replacement in the pivot,
lanky Harvey Williams, also came
up with 16 markers, most of them
coming on breathtaking rebounds.
Forward John Codwell added 10
scores in addition to playing an
excellent defensive game.
ONLY in the final ten minutes
was the varsity outscored, but by
that time it had a substantial 68-
33 advantage and the game in the
bag.
Fast-breaking Barron drove
in for a layup in the opening
seconds of the contest and from
that time on his team showed
adept shooting from the floor,
pouring in 34 field goals to 15
for the losers.
A Jorgenson jump shot plus an-
other driving layup, this time by
Codwell, and a pair of free throws
upped the ante to 8-3 with only a
few minutes gone.
With 6-4 freshman Dave Parks
clearing everything in sight off
the boards and his teammates en-
joying a bumper crop of charity
chances, the gap closed to 8-6 and
10-7.
But that was as close as things
got for the remainder of the
fracas. The Blue Shirts forged

with three minutes gone in the
next session had a 26-14 bulge
to work with.
Parks narrowed that score to
26-18 with two one-handed siz-
zlers within 15 seconds of one an-
other. Then Groffsky meshed sev-
en points sandwiched around a
Williams tip-in and the Blue shirts
went up 35-20.

JORGENSEN hit a couple of
his specialties just before half time
