Michigan Takes on MSC
In Last Dual Track Meet
Jones Pitches PhiKappa Psi to 12.6 Win
A GROUP OF University students headed by Ken Ross and Bob Ely
has submitted a petition to the Board in Control of Intercolle-
giate Athletics which calls for the recognition of soccer as a varsity
The petition, drawn up by the members of the Wolverine Soccer
Club, and signed by more than two thousand male students, states
the reasons why adherants of the sport wish to see it elevated to var-
Why is soccer deserving of varsity status? For one thing, the
game is highly competitive, lending itself to skill rather than the
ruggedness of body contact sports. The small man can compete
on more even terms with his oversized brethren.'
The game is fast moving and there is continuous action, thus
making it an ideal spectator sport. Perhaps the best reason for mak-
ing soccer a varsity sport is that such action would bind the more
than 800 foreign students on the campus to the Michigan athletic pro-
grom. Soccer is the national game in the majority of the countries
w hich are represented in the enrollment on the Ann Arbor campus.
It is also flourishing at many American universities, and is recognized
by the N.C.A.A.
Great Source of Talent .. .
THE QUESTION is raised as to how large would be the potential
source of players. The answer lies in the fact that throughout the
state there has been an increase in soccer among students of high
school age, culminating in organized soccer leagues such as the one in
1. Detroit. Further, there are a great many students on the campus who
come from Eastern cities, where soccer has been popular for years.
Add to these groups the eligible foreign students, and there is a
substantial reservoir of talent to feed the new sport.
What is the coaching situation? Mr. C. K. Wu, who coached the
1948 Chinese Olympic team, has handled the soccer team in the past,
and has expressed a desire to continue in that capacity. Also associated
with the team is Mr. Allan Cassels, a teaching fellow in history, and
former soccer star at Oxford University in 1950.
The ever-present question of finances was raised. The full-
time coach would be working only during the soccer season. An
all-year coach is not essential. The 15 man traveling squad can
easily be transported in three automobiles, which would put this
expense at a minimum, while equipment for players would cost
five dollars per man. In short, soccer can be carried as a varsity
sport with a minimum financial outlay. A workable system of
admission charges can be put into practice once the game achieves
Good Competition .. .
VJfHAT CAN WE expect in the way of competition? Soccer is already
a varsity sport atOhio State, and it is catching on at Indiana
Purdue, Michigan State, Illinois and Wisconsin. If the sport reaches
varsity status at Michigan, it can be expected to blossom forth on
many other midwestern campuses. This university commands great
prestige in the field of intercollegiate athletics, and the adoption of
soccer here would serve as a spripg-board for similar groups elsewhere.
Other schools in this area with soccer teams include: Chicago,
Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Western Reserve, Oberlin and Case.
y The logic behind the arguments advanced by the soccer club
seems sound. There is genuine Interest on this campus regarding
the sport. There are two thousand male signatures on a petition
which requires only six hundred names to be valid. Many of those
who signed expressed a desire to try out for the team. The Wol-
verine Soccer Club has been a successful organization for three
years. The record of the club athletically shows eleven victories
as against only one defeat and four ties.
The Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics can kill hopes
for making soccer a varsity sport by refusing the petition drawn up
by the club. It is to be hoped that Board will take cognizance of
the fact that genuine student interest has been and continues to be
shown in this old and respected game. If sufficient student interest
is shown in a sport, there seems to be no reason why it cannot be-
come part of the official athletic program of this university. Perhaps
that is what the late Fielding Yost meant when he set as his goal at
Michigan a program of "Athletics for All."
As an afterthought, it is interesting to note that Ross' father
founded ,soccer as a varsity sport at the college of the city of New
York, where it exists today as one of C.C.N.Y.'s most popular activities.
Whether the younger Ross' efforts will meet with the same success
at the University of Michigan a .generation later remains to be seen.

The Wolverine tracksters end
their 1953 outdoor dual meet sea-
son tomorrow when they face the
Spartans of Michigan State in a
dual meet encounter.
This marks the second meeting
between the two schools in two
weeks, the previous time being the
experimental relay meet on May
5 in which no individual or team
sores were kept. This meet will
also be the last chance for the Wol-
verines to test themselves under
competition before the Conference
Championships, May 29-30, at Illi-
THE SPARTANS boast a strong
outfit headed by hurdler John Cor-
belli, middle distance men Jim
Kepford and John Walter and
sprinter Lou Vargha.

team lost a meet to the power-
ful Illini by a score of 89-43 and
then went on to notch victories
over Penn State and Wisconsin
in consecutive week-ends.
In the Illinois battle, Corbelli
placed third in the 220-yard low
hurdles and teammate Harlan
Benjamin took third in the 120-
yard high hurdles with Illinois men
taking first and second places in!

THIS IS ALMOST identical to
the performance of the Wolverines
last week-end when Van Bruner
took a third in the highs and Jim
Love took a second in the lows.
Illini record-holder Joel McNulty
ran off with both firsts and team-
mate Willard Thomson notched a
second and third, respectively, in
the two events.
In the high jump event, State
managed to grab two of the
three places from the Illini and
also set a record while Michigan
did the same against the Illini.
However the record set by Milt
Mead was more than five inches
above the record established by
Spartan Raymond McKay.
In the two mile events the same
thing occurred once again as Spar-
tans Ron Barr and Walter were
beaten by Walt Jewsbury in the
same way as he edged out Wolver-
ine George Lynch and Bob Hall

Stumpfig Holds Key Post
On Wolverine LinksSquad
By JOHN M. KOVAL
Tall, lean, well-tanned Jackf
Stumpfig, although handicapped
somewhat by a hip injury, is one
of the main reasons why Coach
Bert Katzenmeyer's golf squad ist
considered a serious threat forI
the Big Ten Conference Crown.
Stumpfig, returning to the golf-I
ing circles this spring after a year's
absence, immediately won for him-
self a regular position on the
squad. He is a veteran letterman,
winning his numeral in his sopho-
IN A triangular meet against
Iowa and Northwestern, Stumpfg
shot a three under par 69. This is
the lowest score racked up by aC
Wolverine linksman this season.
Coupling this 69 on the morningr
round with a 74 in the afternoon,
he tied Michigan's Bud Stevens for
Generally playing in the num-
ber one or two spot, Stumpfig has
has managed to garner valuable
points in all of the Wolverines'e
contests. Against Ohio State he
fired a pair of 3's to complete-
ly outclass his opponent, Frank
Cardi, Ohio Amateur Champion
and top man on the Buckeye
Early last March, Stumpfig en-
tered the hospital to get an opera-
tion for a hip injury, sustained
while he was a child. He is still at
times bothered by a sore hip and
back. During the southern tour, in
early April, he was forced to play
around the course with a folding
chair to rest on between shots.

LIKE SO MANY golfers, Stump-
fig first became interested in the
game at an early age when he be-
came a caddy at the Midland
Country Club. His first competi-
tive golf was played for Midland
High School. Playing for Midland
in 1949, Stumpfig won the State
High School Championship.
During the summer months,
Stumpfig works at the Dow
Chemical Corporation. However,
he manages to play in several
Professional - Amateur tourna
ments. His best effort since tak-
ing up the game has been a 67

Stumpfig is in the Literary
school and is majoring in Eco-
nomics. He eventually plans to get
a job irk business. He will be in
school again next spring and with
another year of eligibility left, he
should be a great help to Coach
Stumpfig, like most of the Wol-
verine linksters, has been rather
erratic throughout the season, on
occasions playing some tremen-
dous golf, while, at other times,
he defiinitely has been out of
form. However, as of late, he has
shown interesting improvement
and should be in top shape for the
Big Ten Finals.
G. C. HOUSTON, Manufac-
turing Services Division . . . In
General Electric manufacturing
operations involve supervising
and administering the activities
of more than 100,000 men and
women in more than 100 plants.
This includes the operation of
approximately 75 distinct prod-
uct businesses, producing some
200,000 different products rang-
ing from heavy industrial equipment to precision instruments
and consumers' goods..
The cost of manufacturing our products represents 70% of
the total expenditure for all operations including research,
engineering, marketing and other administrative functions.
With these activities and expenditures in the field of manu-
facturing one can readily visualize the breadth of opportunity
in the area of manufacturing. This wide scope of manufacturing
activities and the importance of their integration into an effec-
tive organization provide opportunity for challenging and
rewarding careers in such areas as follows:
Manufacturing Supervision: The most important part of any
manufacturing organization is men-those who apply their
varied skills and talents to perform the many tasks involved
in the manufacturing process. To direct the activities of these
men, to inspire performance, co-operation and teamwork, to
provide fair and equitable treatment, to see that work is done
in required quantity-on time-and at the lowest possible cost,
is the responsibility of Manufacturing Supervision. It offers a
challenging and satisfying career for individual growth and
Manufacturing Engineering: This is the creative portion of
modern manufacturing. It involves interpretation of initial
product designs into good manufacturing practices through
planning the methods by which a product will be manufactured,
specifying and designing machine tools and equipment, and
planning and developing new processes. It is vitally concerned
with such subjects as plant layout, materials handling, operation
planning, and quality control. It requires a thorough knowledge
and broad understanding of how these subjects influence the
manufacture of a product.
Purchasing: General Electric is one of the most diversified
purchasers in the country today, buying material from every
industry. Much of this purchasing involves technical problems,
and requires a knowledge of sources of supply, market trends,
and new products. Many items purchased are components or
finished products of other technical industries. Constant contact
with price, as well as evaluation of current and long-range raw
material supply situations, is another phase of this activity. It
is becoming more and more important as a career opportunity
for young men.
In addition to the above described areas of opportunity in
manufacturing, such manufacturing services as wage-rate de-
termination, production control, inventory management, produc-
tion planning and development, and materials handling offer
opportunity for highly trained specialization and for competent
These areas of manufacturing, together with many others,
offer the college graduate of. today a wealth of opportunity
for a challenging and rewarding career.
