Sports Night Editor
During the recently buried sum-
mer, while most of us were cavort-
ing around air-conditioned offices
or slaving over a hot beach, John
Schubeck, Jr., was playing golf,
lots-of it.
Schubeck, now a freshman in
the Literary College, tied for first
place in the National Junior
Chamber of Commerce Tourna.-
ment held on the University Golf
Course, Aug. 17-22.
* *4
HIS FOURl-ROUND total of 297
strokes was matched by Jimmy
Raines from Augusta, Georgia,
necessitating a playoff to decide
the title. Schubeck faltered to an
81 on the extra 18 holes and
Raines grabbed the championship
with a steady 75.
The. playoff round climaxed
12 straight days of tournament
golf for Schubeck during which
the former caddie from Loch-
moor Club in Grosse Pointe
Woods, Michigan, won the
United States Golf Association
Junior district qualifying tour-
ney and placed fourth in the
Michigan State Caddie Cham
pionship meet.
The soft-spoken Schubeck, who
would be six-foot even, if he
didn't wear a crew-cut, started
the links sport at the age of eight
with the . encouragement of his

father, likewise named and like-
wise an excellent golfer.
IN HIS FIRST tournament, the
Detroit High School Champion-
ship, in which he represented Den-
by High, the energetic golfer, only
15 years old, put his eight years
experience to good use and took
home the individual trophy.
Gaining a berth on the Loch-
moor caddy team, he competed
in numerous meets, rarely fin-
ishing below the top ten. As a
caddy, he became eligible for a
Standish-Evans Scholarship giv-
en jointly by the Detroit District
Golf Association and the West-
ern Golf Association.
Schubeck's good record as a
caddy and his 'B' average in high
school finally earned for him one
of these scholarships on which
he is now attending Michigan in
a pre-law curriculum.

THE MOST promising golfer of
14 freshman Standish - Evans
Scholars, all former caddies, he
provides a spark of encouragement
for Coach Bert Katzenmeyer,
whose depleted golf squad will-find
only two veterans returning next
spring, Jack Stumpfig and Tad
Stanford. Bud Stevens, a regular
last year as a sophomore, will not
be back because of scholastic dif-

Varsity Rolls Thirty Different Sports

Detroit Lions
Release Three
From Roster
DETROIT -() - The Detroit'
Lions trimmed three players from
their roster today in an effort to
make the deadline limit of 33.
They now have 36.
Cut loose today were veteran
linebacker Dick Flanagan, rookie
fullback Pete Retzlaff, and end
Pat Sumerall.
RETZLAFF, from South Dakota
State, was released on waivers. He
had no professional experience.
Sumerall, was sold to the Chi-
cago Cardinals. He came to the
Lions from the University of
Arkansas last year, but broke
his arm in the second game and
was out for the season.
Earlier Flanagan, a former Ohio
State University player and vet-
eran of five years in the pro-works
had been sold to the Pittsburgh
Steelers for an undisclosed sum.
He came to the Lions in 1950
from the Chicago Cardinals.

Many football sages found their
bacon and eggs indigestable Sun-
day morning as they looked over
the results of the opening of col-
lege football on Saturday.
One-platoon football provided
and will probably continue to pro-
vide enough upsets to keep the ex-
perts guessing the rest of the 1953
A NUMBER of wrinkles 'were'
added to the somewhat weather-
beaten face of Grantland Rice, na-
tionally-known prophet, when
little Mississippi Southern came
up with a 25-19 victory over Ala-
bama. Rice had gone out on the
limb to pick "Alabam" as his
choice for top team in the nation
this season and Southern proceed-
ed to saw off the.limb in the cam-
paign opener.
Four big reverses involved
West Coast teams, the most not-
able perhaps being Baylor's 25-0
slaughter of a favored California
squad and Oregon's 20-12 tri-
umph over Nebraska.
College of the Pacific, brought
to the limelight a few years back

by the famous Eddie LeBaron,
downed Stanford 25-20, in an-
other game where a small school
took a much larger one to task.
MEANWHILE, the University of
Washington's passing attack was
faltering before an underdog Colo-
rado eleven, in a, close battle,
It is impossible to draw any
definite conclusions at this early
date but the scores would indi-
cate the possibility of increased
power for the small schools in
the new one-platoon setup. In
this case, the change would be
accomplishing one on the pur-
poses for which it was originally
established. Small schools were
previously being edged out of
football as a sport.
From many of Saturday's totals
it is obvious that the new rules
are hurting teams strong in the
specialist departments. The coach-
es may have to call in a chiropo-
dist if a solution isn't found for
the bevy of conversions missed;
much poorer results were provided
by this year's full-time members
than by last season's "seasoned"
At any rate forecasters will find
that not only are the close-even
games difficult to settle on but
that one-sided tussles may not be
as one-sided as originally thought.

Major Emphasis
On Pass Defense

With the big opening game
against Washington only four days
away, the Michigan football team
is beginning to slacken off in its
practice sessions.
The last real strenuous workout
came in the full-game scrimmage
last Saturday as the first and sec-
ond string "Blue" team rolled over
a muddy "White" aggregation on
rain-swept Ferry Field.
THE BLUES piled up a 39-13
margin, though first-stringers
Dick Beison, Tad Stanford and
Lou Baldacci kept to the sidelines
to avoid agravating minor bruises.
Sophomores interested in try-
ing out for sophomore football
manager positions please re-
port to Ferry Field any after-
noon this week at 3:00 p.m.

On Intramui
As the new semester begins, at-
tentionis once again focused on an
activity in which more students
participate than any other, the
intramural sports program.

pus, consists of twenty-one differ-
ent sports, varying from baseball
and basketball to paddleball and

At the close of the sports pro-
gram in the spring, an all-around
athlete is chosen and is presented
with the Intramural athlete of
the year trophy. The award is pre-
sented by the Michigan Daily to

the Intramural staff on the basis
of the number of sports partici-
pated in, advancement in these
sports, individual honors, and
points accumulated.
