With the opening basketball
game still over a month away
Coach Bill Perigo is getting an
early start on his drive to lift the
Wolverine cagers out of the Big
Ten cellar where they were mired
last season.
In his second year at the Michi-
gan helm, Perigo has been drill-
ing a small band of hopefuls now
in their fifth week of practice at
Yost Field House.

The current edition of Wolver-
ine basketball had one big jump
on its predecessor before practice
ever started-every man on the
squad has a season of the Perigo
fast-break under his belt.
WHEN the sophomore mentor
took over last year he acquired a
team which had known nothing
but the slow, set type of game so
strongly advocated by former
coach Ernie McCoy.
The Wolverines missed per-
fection under the new system by
a long shot, but showed occa-
sional flashes of brilliance as on
the night they meshed 99 points
against Purdue to set a new Yost
Field House record.

Headlining the returnies from
last year's cast is center Paul
Groffsky, Michigan's leading point-
getter who was consequently vot-
ed the team's most valuable player.
As a sophomore the 6-4 Grofisky
pumped in 301 counters in 22
contests for a 13.7 average.

SUCCEEDING Lawrence as Cap-
tain is senior Ray Pavichevich, a
5-11 ball of fire who has seen ac-
tion at both guard and forward in
his two years of varsity play.
A couple of other men on
whom Perigo will rely heav-
ily are guard Don Eaddy and
forward John Codwell, both of
whom finished close behind
Groffsky in the 1952-53 scoring
derby. Eaddy, although only a
junior, has two years of varsity
experience behind him, having
gotten in under the short-lived
freshman eligibility rule of 1951-

er forward, Bruce Allen, who saw

gridder Bob Topp round out the
list of returning lettermen.
A pair of highly touted guards
up from the freshman ranks, Jim
Barron and Tom Jorgenson,
promise to not only add depth to
the backcourt position but give
someone a fight for the job.
Sophomore Tom Singer and
juniors Jim Dutcher and Junior
Stielstra add more depth to the
guard slots, while sophomore Jay
Vawter and junior Harvey Wil-
liams,bboth of whom stand 6-8,
have been getting a lot of work
at center. .

PERIGO has been putting in a
great deal of time with Williams,
who is hampered considerably by
inexperience. The lanky pivot-
man saw action in only one game
last year, after having played bas-
ketball but a single year in high.
Mead has been practicing with
a plastic mask on his face to pro-
tect a nose broken in a touch foot-
ball game the first week of school,
while Allen reinjured a previously
broken nose last week in practice
when he came into too close con-
tact with Groffsky's elbow.

Are we stretching things a bit? May-
be - but when you find out how mild
and sweet and refreshing the Medico
pipe can be, you'll go for Medico, too!
It's the replaceable filter in Medico
that makes the big difference. That
little filter traps dangerous nicotine
and tars, disagreeable juices and flakes.
That's why countless smokers, begin-
ners and old timers alike, who never
enjoyed the pleasures of a pipe, now en-

joy the clean mild fragrance of Medico

Gomberg was forced into staging
a second half comeback in order
to defeat Allen-Rumsey House
12-6 in a first place dorm league
playoff contest.
The first half looked as if it
might wind up without a score
when the Rusey men caught fire.
Sparked by the passing of Jack
De Cue, Rumsey marched inside
the Gomberg 20, where they earn-
ed a vital first down. Quarterback
