Washington's
Hleinrich mWins
Honors
NEW YORK - (AP) -- Washing-
ton's Don Heinrich, the T Quar-
terback who played his last col-
lege football game five days after
being, inducted into the Army,
won the major college passing title
for 1952.
* * *
HEINRICH'S seven completions
in his last game gave him a sea-
son's total of 137, the second larg-
est mark ever recorded. Only Don
Klosterman's aggregate of 159 ex-
ceeded Heinrich's mark. Kloster-
man played for Loyola of Los An-
geles last year.
Despite his hot pace, Heinrich
was closely pursued. He played
10 games while Tommy O'Con-
nell of Illinois, completed 134 in
nine games.
O'Connell, with 33 out of 224
for 59.4 per cent posted an accur-
acy figure excelled only by Hein-
rich's 60.9 per cent in 1950 for
more than 150 attempts.

By DICK BUCK
For a basketball player who was
once told by Ernie McCoy, "you'll
never play basketball on my team,"
Doug Lawrence has come a long
way.
The incident occurred when
Lawrence first came to Michigan.
He was ineligible the first semes-
ter and worked out with the fresh-
man team. On becoming eligible
the next semester he approached
McCoy, who had little regard for
5-8 players, and received the above
ultimatum.
LAWRENCE cooly replied, "I
can fill any jersey on your team."
McCoy had to give him a chance
and the next day Lawrence was
} playing on the first five.
At 5'8" he is the shortest play-
er on the Michigan roster but
can jump like a kangaroo, out-
rebounding many a taller play-
er.
Through the last two seasons
Lawrence has proved himself a
"pressure" player, He is the fiery,
aggressive type of cager who keeps
a team rolling when the going is
rough.
* * *
IT WAS FOR this reason that
Lawrence was elected as captain
of this year's Michigan squad. He
is not only able to handle himself
capably on the court but has al-
most as good an insight into the
game as the coaches themselves.
Possessing an excellent two-
handed push shot from outeourt,
Lawrence is better noted for his
expert playmaking in which he
puts his natural speed to good
use.

Last year he tallied 154 points
in 22 games for 7.0 average per
game to finish fourth in the Wol-
verine scoring column. In Big Ten
play Lawrence dropped in 102
points for 14 games.
THUS FAR this season he has
shown the same spark and fire
for which he gained fame in pre-
vious years, and has reaped a total
of 14 points in two contests.
With eligibility expiring this
year, a five year Architecture
and Design program will keep
Lawrence around campus next
year when he hopes to do a
little coaching on the side.
A Fort Wayne, Indiana, product
he played both football and bas-
ketball in high school, originally
coming to Michigan to seek a
quarterback's spot on the football
team. However, once his basket-
ball skill was realized, football
was a thing of the past.
* * *
AT PRESENT he is in the Air
Force ROTC and will enter as a
second lieutenant after gradua-
tion. On coming out he says he
will take a job wherever he can
find an opening in his line.

First in a series of articles dealing
with the prospects of the Michigan
track team, today's article concerns
the quarter milers. Next the distance
events.
By ED SMITH
If quartermilers grew on trees
Coach Don Canham couldn't have
picked himself a much better crop
than those now ripening under his
direction in Yost Fieldhouse.
Headed by Captain Jack Car-
roll, Big Ten indoor champ, the
Wolverine thinclads could have
the best mile relay team in Michi-
gan history.
HE WILL BE quite capably as-
sisted by seniors Dan Hickman and
Joe LaRue and Sophomore Grant
Scruggs. If any of these men fal-
ter, the slack could be capably tak-
en up by either Bill Barton or Al
Rankin.
Canadian Carrol and Pana-
manian Cirilo McSween, who
Munn Picked
Year's Best
Grid Coach
NEW YORK - (R) - Michigan
State yesterday had the football
coach of the year in Clarence (Big-
gie) Munn as well as the nation's
No. 1 college football team.
The 44-year-old Spartan men-
tor, whose team has won its last
24 games, was picked for the honor
by members of the American Foot-
ball Coaches Association in the
18th annual poll conducted by the
Schripps-Howard Newspapers.

will wear the Orange and Blue
of Illinois, rule as co-favorites
for 440 honors.
Last year in three meetings
McSween won twice and Carroll
once. Carroll was the victor in the
indoor conference meet, while Mc-
Sween triumphed outdoors in both
dual and conference encounters.
THE OTHER outstanding quar-
termilers in the conference are
LeRoy Ebert and Garry Scott of
Iowa and Meade Burnett of Ohio
State, all of whom placed in con-
ference last year.
At this early stage in the sea-
son it appears that the Wolver-
ines have the outstanding mile
relay team in the Conference,
but both Illinois and Iowa have
high speed units and the Buck-
eyes can usually be relied upon
to come up with a good relay
unit.
OnlyBillKonrad graduated from
the unit that romped to victory in
the outdoor championships last
season, but letterman Bill Barton
will probably not return to this
event.
* * *
THE VACANT positions have
been filled by newcomer Scruggs
and returnee LaRue, both of whom
were hampered with scholastic
difficulties last season. Two sea-
sons ago as a sophomore LaRue
placed in the Conference.
Also back this year is senior Al
Rankin. Last season Rankin was a
regular on the relay squad, but he
took sick at the end of the out-
door campaign and had to be re-
placed by Barton. Rankin is cur-
rently the top replacement on the
squad.

PACKARD
OFFERS GREAT OPPORTUNITY
FOR NEW DEALER
IN ANN ARBOR
Packard Motor Car Company's great new ex-
pansion program makes available a Packard
sales and service franchise in Ann Arbor. The
man who qualifies-a businessman of proved
ability (though not necessarily in automobiles)'
-gets a virtually untapped market for two of
America's most promising lines of 1953 cars-
the long-famous Packards and the brilliant new,
big-value Clippers by Packard. To help him
appeal to all buyers of medium, upper-medium
and upper-price cars in this market, he receives
fhe backing of the largest advertising promotion
in Packard's 54-year history. All inquiries con-
fidential. Write, wire or phone collect: Mr. F.
