RecordHendricks To Fill Gap I

Barron Nets


To Pace 100-62 Massacre

(Continued from Page 1)
Eckart but two straight three
on two breaks netted the Wol-
verines four more markers. Jor-
genson was fouled on a shot and
he made both and Barron con-
nected with a short jump.
John Rump cut Michigan's lead
by two before Williams showed he
can make all kinds of shots as he
hooked in a basket from the pivot.
Williams racked up 13 points in
the initial period and was mainly
responsible for the Wolverines'
33-19 margin at the quarter.
THE LOSERS spurted briefly at
the start of the next period as
Don Wilbrandt scored from the
foul line and Don Bielke tossed in
two from the bucket. Bielke
eventually tallied 13 and was the
Crusaders' top point getter.
Perigo's five came right back
as Williams hit a dog shot af-
ter taking a beautiful back-
hand pass from Groffsky, and
Don Eaddy finished off a quick
break with a jumper.
Eckart netted two as he dupli-
cated Eaddy, but another spark-

the Michigan dribblers would win
by and whether or not they'd hit
100. 'With Barron and Eaddy hit-
ting on jump shots and Williams
and Groffsky scoring from in close,
the local cagers ran away with
the game.
When Michigan had 90 points,
Perigo threw in his reserves and
with the noisy, enthusiastic crowd
screaming at every basket, the
victors made the double 00 light
up on the scoreboard at the 9:40
mark in the last quarter.
The Wolverines were successful
with 39 percent of their field goal
attempts while Valparaiso con-
nected with 29 percent.

Diver Jim Walters is due to
play a big part in Wolverine swim-
ming plans for the coming sea-
Coach Matt Mann is hoping that
Walters will be able to break the
Western Conference diving mo-
nopoly held for nearly twenty
years by Ohio State. A victory
for Walter would deal a serious
blow to the Buckeye hopes for
successfully defending the con-
ference crown won by OSU .at
Iowa City, Iowa, last March.

Senators Get
Umphlett; A's
Sell Michaels
NEW YORK ()-The Washing-
ton Senators yesterday traded out-
fielder Jackie Jenson to Boston for
lefthanded pitcher Maurie Mc-
Derrmot and outfielder Tom1
In another deal yesterday the
White Sox purchased Cass Mi-
chaels from the Philadelphia
Athletics. For the much traveled
Michaels it will be homecoming. As
the second baseman for the Chi-
sox, the blond veteran was named
to the American League All Star
team in 1949.
WITH THE acquisition of the
long ball hitting Jenson the Red
Sox will gain another right hand-
ed marksman to shoot at the short
Fenway park left field wall. Mc-
Derrmott should provide manager
Buckey Harris with a long sought
after lefthander of major leage
As a Rookie Umphlett estab-
lished himself as one of the
smoothest performing outfield-
ers to appear on the Boston
scene in many years. Umphlett,
fleet Jim Busby and Gil Coan
should combine their efforts to
give the Senators one of the best
defensive trios in any junior cir-
cuit outfield.
A handy man with the bat
Umphlett flirted with the .300
mark all last season. By grabbing
the capable Michaels off the mark-

Walters has held at least one state
title each year since he first cap-
tured the Illinois prep diving
championship as a junior at New
Trier High School. The following
year he successfully defended his
prep crown and added the state
AAU title to his list of laurels.
As a Wolverine freshman,
Walters annexed the Michigan
AAU crown in 1951. He returned
last year to successfully defend
his title, and succeeded in de-
feating all challengers last Sat-
urday to win the crown for the
third successive year.
As a varsity diver Walters posted
a fine record of six firsts and two
seconds in eight dual meets last
year. In the conference meet last
spring, however, he proved to be'
no match for Ohio State stars Bob
Clotworthy and Gerald Harrison.
Walters trailed the Buckeye aces
in both the three-meter and one-
meter events.
MANN BELIEVES that Walters
may be able to defeat the Ohio
State diving crew this year. He
claims that the engineering junior
is "a different diver this year. Wal-
ters has improved greatly over his
performances of last season."
The 20-year old Wolverine nata-
tor is looking forward with quite a
bit of enthusiasm to the dual meet
with OSU late in February. While
admitting that the Buckeye divers
are "very good," Walters still rates
the Ohio State swimming meet as
one of his favorites.

gan State's all-opponent team.
During the State-Michigan tussle
Balog was the fifth man in the
Spartan backfield all afternoon
and was instrumental in the fine
showing of the Wolverines.
Kress, a fl1 ashy, reliable
ground gainer for three cam-
paigns blossomed into a deadly
safety for the Maize and Blue
this past season. Probably Kress'
finest showing occured in the
1952 season when he led the
Wolverines in rushing, passing,
scoring and total offense and
finished among the Big Ten's in-
dividual leaders in those cata-

The fortunes of this years track
team will depend, to a large de-
gree, on how well Thomas Hen-
dricks Jr. performs on the cin-
der path.
Hendricks, though never having
run the hurdles before last year, is
being groomed by track coach Don
Canham to replace star hurdler
Van Bruner. This is a difficult and
arduous task, for Bruner has fin-
ished second three times and third
once in Big Ten championship
LAST JUNE, Bruner finished
third behind Joel McNulty and
Billy Thompson, both of Illinois,
In comparing Bruner to Hen-
dricks Canham said, "Hendricks
has performed in better times
than Bruner did when Van was
a sophomore. Hendricks is han-
dicapped by not being as tall as
Bruner, but he makes up for it
by being much faster."
He also pointed out that in this
year's Michigan A.A.U. meet Hen-
dricks came in second to Bruner
in the lows but defeated John Cor--
belli and Han Gillis of Michigan
State-men who were both good
enough to garner points in the
Big Ten meet at Champaign last

CANHAM concluded by saying
that he considers Hendricks to be

Hendricks is a product of
Northwestern High School in
Detroit where he lettered in two
sports-track and football. He
was outstanding in track and
made the Detroit Free Press'
All-City tracks team in 1952.
Hendricks competed in four
events---the 100-yard dash, pole


vault, high jump, and broad
It is interesting to note that of
all the events in which he par-
ticipated he is only running in one,
the broad jump, at Michigan.
THE Detroit speedster's greatest
weakness is inexperience. This is
due to the fact that he has com-
peted in only one meet-the 1953
Michigan A.A.U. Hendricks' great-
est assets are his speed, the fact
that he loves to run, is a terrific

Bruner's replacement seems to
have taken to the hurdles for

record in the 65-yard low hur-

Hendricks is also on the football

flashy halfback is rated one of the
top prospects on the team

Foiled Again!
Charlie Chump was a scrawny Junior who never had any
claim to fame on campus. Then, one day, it became known
that he had become manager of the Fencing Team. Immedi-
ately he was surrounded by a group of incredulous students.
"How come you're managing the Fencing Team?", asked
one of them.
"Well, it's this way," replied Charlie. "Last week I went
down town and got a couple of Van Heusen VANDUROY
Sport Shirts...for only $7.95 apiece. When I put on one of
my rugged corduroy beauties, I looked so handsome that I
was immediatelv srrnnded by all the beautifl coeers.!"
