JOHNSON STARS FOR WOLVERINES:
Illini, Hawkeyes Down'1
By IVAN N. KAYE

Several major coaching changes
highlighted the national football
scene during the recent between'
semesters publication lull.
Most profound of the develop-
ments was the sudden resignation
of Notre Dame's near-immortal
Frank Leahy and the succession of
25-year-old Terry Brennan to
what is generally considered the
most publicized position in foot-
S * *
LEAHY'S DECISION to term-
inate his unbelievably successful
(113 wins 13 losses and nine ties
in 13 seasons) coaching career was
based entirely on declining health.
He collapsed between the
halves of the Georgia Tech game
early in the season suffering
from an acute abdominal dis-
order and was not at full effi-
ciency for the remainder of the
year. He heard his team play
Navy from a hospital sickbed
and was kept in South Bend by
doctors when the Irish traveled
to Los Angeles to play Southern
California in the season's final
Brennan, althougb one of the
youngest men ever to take the
coaching reins at a major univer-
sity, brings to his job an out-!
standing record at Chicago's Mt.
Carmel High School.
HE WAS BROUGHT in as an
assistant last season. As a half-

back on the Notre Dame teams
just after the end of the war, he
was a consistent ground-gainer,
and is best remembered for a 97-
yard kick-off return in the 1947
Army game. The Irish, playing at
South Bend before a frenzied
home audience had not scored on
Army in three years. Brennan
grabbed the opening kick-off and
blazed down the sidelines for the
first touchdown in a 27-7 Notre
Brennan's big task during the
coming season will be to lead
the Irish to victory over Mich-
igan State. The Spartans under
Biggie Munn pasted Notre Dame
three times in succession in
Major coaching changes also
occurred at East Lansing follow-
ing the elevation of line 'coach
Hugh D. (Duffy) Daugherty to
the position formerly held by
Munn. Steve Sebo, Munn's back-
field coach took the job left va-
cant by the outspoken George
Munger at the University of Penn-
sylvania, and Earle Edwards, who
had been end coach at East Lan-
sing since 1949, was lured to North
THE UNIVERSITY of Kansas,
like North Carolina State, looking
to an upsurge in football fortunes

The Texas Aggles, once the
scourge of Southwest gridirons,
and dormant since the bright days
of Homer Norton before the war,
have gone to Lexingtno, Kentucky,
to take from the Wildcats their
highly successful Paul (Bear)
Another successful coach, Mur-
ray Warmath of Mississippi State,
took over at the University of
Minnesota replacing Wes Fesler.
Warmath's greatest accomplish-
ments were achieved while coach-
ing the Army lines for Earl Blaik
at West Point during the war.

Not only did the Wolverines
drop two meets, one each to Illi-
nois and Iowa, but all-around star
Harry Luchs and trampoliner Ron
Fox, have been declared ineligible
because of scholastic difficulties.
LUCHS, 1952 parallel bar cham-
pion, and a consistent all around
performer, was expected to grab
valuable points in the Conference
meet next month at Columbus.
After whipping Wisconsin in
convincing fashion, 64-32, to
open vacation action, Michigan,
according to Loken was miser-
able while absorbing 55-41 and
481-47% defeats at the hands
of the Illini and Hawkeyes re-
Luchs picked up Michigan's
only first place against Illinois
with the rest of the team being
far off form. In several key spots
the Wolverine entries failed even
to complete their routines.

THE WOLVERINE loss to Iowa
was a surprise. The failure of
Lee Krumbholz to come through
with a victory in the side horse
and the loss of expected import-
ant points in the flying rings were
the main causes of the defeat.
With captain Marv Johnson
Michigan swept the high bar
and managed a one-two per-
formance in the parallel bars.
Bill Winkler, first year tramp
man, turned in an impressive
performance in his specialty and
pressed Iowa's NCAA champion-
ship duo, Bob Hazlett and Jim
Norman, before picking up a
Led by Johnson, who turned in
one of the best performances of
his career, Michigan had little
trouble disposing of Wisconsin.
The versatile Maize and Bue cap-
tain captured victories in every
event he entered, annexing thef
top high bar, parallel bars, flying
rings and tumbling point totals.
WINKLER won the trampling
competition to give the Wolver-
ines five out of six firsts.
Although the loss of Luchs dam-
pens Loken's chance for his first
Big Ten title, the picture isn't
completely black. Frank Adams,
star of last year's team, will re-
turn to action this Saturday
Adams, out first semester due
to ineligibility, will replace Luchs
in the high bar and help Winkler
carry the load on the trampoline.
Mavroudias Antoniou will also
compete for the first time this
season in the Gopher meet and
should provide side horse and
parallel bar depth.

... scores decisive victory
and then scored a "reversal of po-
sition" which was good for two
points and a 9-7 final decision.
This performance of Holt's
proved to be the winning fac-
tor as he gained three points
for the Wolverines who now
have a record of three wins in
the five meetings with Coach
Rex Perry's grapplers.
In the 157-pound division Mike
Rodriguez battled Charles Uram
to an even 1-1 decision. Uram is
one of the best wrestlers in the
nation and definitely proved this
last season when he placed third
in the 1953 NCAA meet.
