JACK-OF-ALL-TRADES:

COACH BILL PERIGO was talking about Harvey Williams, the
elongated center on whom a good deal of Michigan's basketball
hopes for the current season are hinging. "He's a different ball-
player than he was last year" quoth Perigo, "he's improving fast and
he can make the difference between a good and bad season for us."
The coach has got a cogent point there. The Wolverines have
been in the basketball doldrums ever since Ozzie Cowles took a team
with Bob Harrison, Mack Suprenowicz and Pete Elliott to the NCAA
r playoffs back in 1948-and then with much the same personnel had
another good year in 1949. The big trouble with the hoop teams that
have dribbled across the hardwoods of Yost Field House since then
has usually been the failure to find a "big man" to play the pivot
spot, rebound and hold down the oppositions high-scoring centers.
In the 1953-1954 schedule, Michigan will run up against a
strong crop of altitudinous and smooth-working pivotmen-with
two Western Conference skyscrapers, Don Schlundt of Indiana
and John Kerr of Illinois deserving special attention. The 6-8
Schlundt and the 6-9 Kerr were both popular pre-season All-
American nominations and are acknowedged to be among the
best "inside shots" and rebounders in the college game.
Of course there are other fine, big pivot men in the conference
this year. Powerful, 6-7 Paul Morrow returns to Wisconsin, burly
Bob Armstrong, Michigan State's 6-8 center is back as is the agile
6-4 Paul Ebert of Ohio State and the smooth working 6-6 Ed Kalafat
of Minnesota. These men enjoyed field days against the Wolverines
last season and rumor has it that their mouths still water when a
game with Michigan draws close.
f '
Man of the Hour.. ..
THE SIX FOOT EIGHT INCH Williams is the man of the hour.
What he does against these opposing behemoths can make or
break the Michigan team. The rest. of coach Perigo's squad is well
stocked-he is blessed with five strong forwards and a quartet of
good back-court men-the "middle problem" is the one that will+
prove vexing.
Captain Ray Pavchevich, letterman Don Eaddy and sophs Jim
r Barron and Jerry Stern could play guard for most any college team.
They all are good shots and can pass and play-make with the best
of them. Up front John Codwell, Paul Groffsky, Tom Jorgenson,
Bruce Allen and Milt Mead will share the load-and it's a tall crop
for forwards.
Mead stands 6-7, Groffsky and Allen measure 6-4, Codwell
is 6-3 and Jorgenson an even six feet. Last year Groffsky and
Mead shared pivot operations and drew the job of guarding the
opposing centers. Mead has never lived up to the advance bally-
hoo that he received as a freshman and all-state selection from
Bay City. He's big, fast and he can jump (he cleared 6-8 in a
dual track meet with Illinois)-but he hasn't been able to combine
all of his talents on a college basketball court as yet.
Groffsky was Michigan's Most Valuable Player and high scorer
last year. He is a competent pivot man with excellent shots from in
close, but he just doesn't have the height to compete with any of the
opposition's big men. Actually Groffsky handles himself around the
keyhole better than anyone else Perigo has available-his passing and1
position play are near perfect-but when the real big boys come to
town he had to borrow a chair to stop them.
The First Test .. .
THE WOLVERINES HOPE that Williams will fare better againstx
the Conference monsters than did his predecessos of last year.-
His- first real test will come when Michigan runs against Marquette1
and Russ Wittberger at the Field House on December 12th. Then
again, it may not-since last season Michigan hamstrung the 6-6
Hilltopper at its Field House opener. After that one, the Wolverines
won but five more times and dropped sixteen.
But brother Wittberger is a prominent selection for All-Midwest
teams this year and chances are that Williams will more than have
his hands full. Amazingly enough, Williams has played only one full
season of high school ball in his home town, of Louisville before
pumping rather suddenly into Michigan's first-string pivot slot.
He has come along slowly under the persistant efforts of
Perigo and has developed into a pretty fair ball player-but he
still has an lawful lot to learn. He has fine physical attributes
with. good speed, fine spring in his legs and long arms. It's hard
to imagine someone standing six and two thirds feet off the
ground and having long arms to boot-but unbelievable or not,
it's a big asset in basketball.
Williams' shots are not spectacular-his only dependable offen-
sive weapon is a jump shot from in close, although he taps well with
either hand. Still he is hampered by a tendency to tap anything on
flight to or vaguely near the basket-knocking out good shots on
offense and being caught for two-point default shots on defense.
Defense is the Big Thing
HIS^PASSING from center is just fair-his ability to retrieve passes
is sub-par, but still this is secondary to defense. Williams' long
arms will force opposing pivot men to do a lot of maneuvering to get
off shots from the inside-but he is easily faked and has an uncom-
fortable habit of pawing the opposing center-a good source of per-
sonal fouls.
Actually, Williams has fouled out of just about every scrim-
mage that the varsity has played against the freshmen. When

the caliber of the opposition is taken into consideration, you can
add two and multiply by four and come out with the number of
fowls that Kerr and Schlundt might draw out of him if the rules
allowed him to remain in the game long enough to pick them up.
Still, these are the men that Williams has to guard-they'll be
carrying the opposing teams main scoring threat and Indiana and
Illinois rule as top-heavy choices for the two top rungs in the Big
Ten hoop ladder. At any rate it should be an improved Michigan
team this year-it's deeper at the guards and forwards, more exper-
ienced and it has a year of the Perigo brand of race-horse basketball
under its belt. As several court sages have remarked, "they can't
go anywhere but up!"

The twentieth annual Frater-
nity, Residence Hall, and Indepen-
dent all-star football selections
werecannounced yesterday by I-M
director Earl Riskey.
There were three repeaters
from last years all-star teams-all
in the Fraternity division. They
were backs Warren Wertheimer of
Sigma Alpha Mu, and Don Mitch-
ell of Kappa Sigma and lineman
Jim Young of Sigma Chi.
THE ALL-STARS were picked,
as in previous years, by the field
supervisor, referees and other I-M
officials. Riskey also mentioned
that the gridiron selections were
based primarily on offensive per-
formances.
Riskey pointed out that the
selectors did not deem it pos-
sible to name a defensive team
and, as a. result, many excellent
players will not get the recogni-
tion they' deserve.
Sigma Alpha Mu, fraternity
champion, placed only one man,,
halfback Wertheimer, on the all-
star team. This makes the third
successive year that Wertheimer
has made the all-star team. In
1951 he earned recognition while
playing for Wenley in the Resi-
dence Hall division, and for the
last two years while playing for
the Sammies.
PHI DELTA THETA, defeated
in the championship game, 7-6,
landed two men on the "dream
team." They were quarterback
Russ Swaney and lineman Andy
Samosuk.

Haas Spar
By fPHIL DOUGLIS
Versatility is the by-word when-
ever Michigan hockey captain Jim
Haas is mentioned.
Haas, the quiet, well-liked lead-
er of Vic Heyliger's ice contingent
is truly a jack of all trades. When
he broke in with the Wolverines
back in the fall of 1951, Heyliger
placed Haas at a defensive post
where he proceeded to make All-
American in his first season.
* *7
LAST SEASON Heyliger was
pressed for forwards upon the mid-
term graduation of Earl Keyes
and the loss of John McKennell.
The veteran coach turned to Haas
and placed him up front, a real
test of the big defenseman's all-
around ability.
"Jungle-Jim," as his team-
mates jokingly call him, re-
sponded to the call and finished
the season with a total of five
goals and 15 assists for a 20 point
scoring total. The previous sea-
son, playing almost entirely at
defense, Haas tallied six goals
and 13 assists for 19 points.

.

awin, Saskatchewan, Haas finds
himself back at his favorite slot
again this year, that of defense.
Defense is his real position, for he
has a certain knack of figuring out
what the oncharging opponent is
planning to do.
It is this play-sensing ability
that won him All-American
rating as a sophomore, and this
season Heyliger has given him a
chance to try for that coveted
honor once again.
Thus as the 1953-54 Michigan
puckmen take the ice against Mc-
Gill tomorrow night, leading them
into the Coliseum's arena will be
Jim Haas, a reliable player at al-
most any position and certainly
the key man in Michigan's de-
fensive set-up.

« . . versatility plus

Further attesting to his versa-
tility, Haas even played goal for
a minute and a half in his initial
season against Toronto. His fa-
miliarity with all positions, his
quiet mannerisms, and his leader-
ship abilities all added up to his
selection this season as captain
of the Michigan squad.

If so, you may not realize, unless your
placement bureau has told you, how
valuable this may be to your future
business career. For all through
American business and industry to-
day, there is a tendency to regard a
knowledge of the rudiments of busi-
ness administration as an important
asset in any line of work.
Only recently one of America's
leading engineering colleges reported
on the aptitudes sought by hundreds
of leading companies which had can-
vassed its ranks for prospects. And,
except for engineering specialties
themselves, business administration
was mentioned more often than any
other aptitude.
