To ost Chicago Athletic Club


VitorExpected To Give
Michigan Stiff Competition
Fans' Only Opportunity To See Thinclads;
Two-Mile Crew To Run at Los Angeles

In its only home engagement of
the outdoor season, Michigan's
track team will play host to the
Chicago Athletic Club at Ferry
Field this afternoon at 4:15.
Michigan looks forward to tough
competition in all of the track
events from its opponents, al-
though the Chicagoans boast of
little in field competition. Coach
Don Canham looks for some in-
teresting individual duels.
Some of the more formidable op-
position which the Chicago con-
tingent should provide includes
its relay team, consisting of Jim
Brown, John Barnes, Sam Green-
lee and Bill Conrardy, which re-
cently defeated Illinois.
An added attraction in this meet
will be Lowell Zellers, the ex-In-

printed that Cooley defeated

place playoff softball contest.

diana miler, who is competing un-
attached. Zellers is a prospect for
the 1956 Olympic team.
The Wolverines will be slightly
crippled in the meet, since John
Moule, Grant Scruggs, Hobe Jones
and Pete Gray will be taking part
in the Coliseum Relays in Los An-

geles. Coach Canham, incidentally,
has left with the relay team for
the West Coast, where the Relays
will take place tomorrow night.
To counteract these losses, how-
ever, the Wolverines have placed
Jeff Dooley in the mile, Dan Wal-
ter in the half-mile and Laird
Sloan in the quarter-mile.
Lamb Star Miler
Dooley will have his work cut
out for him against Chicago's
Lawton Lamb, who usually runs
the mile in better than 4:20. Lamb,
a graduate of Illinois, ran on the
Illini team that once held the col-
lege two-mile record. Lamb's best
efforts are 4:12 in the mile and
9:33 in the two-mile run.
Barnes, an 800-meter man with,
the 1952 Olympic team, will pro-
vide stiff competition for Walter
in the half-mile. Barnes is a grad-
uate of Occidental College, a per-
ennial power in track.
Another exciting race-perhaps
the most exciting, potentially, of
the whole meet-will be provided
when Ron Wallingford, Michigan's
always-dependable two-miler, runs
against Chicago's very-dangerous
Bob Kelly. Kelly, a graduate of
Loyola of Chicago, has done 4:16
in the mile and 9:16 in the two-
The Chicago Athletic Club, in-
cidentally, is a private group which
operates out of the University of
Chicago athletic facilities. It con-
sists mostly of graduate track ath-
letes from various schools.

A decade ago a group of young-

found themselves minus the serv-
ices of their regular hurler.
As a result a lanky left-handed
first baseman was soon on the

ine baseball star Marv Wisniewski

he is today. No doubt a good deal
Wenley Gains
Softball Crown
Competing yesterday in the Res-
idence Hall first-place semi-final
play-offs, Wenley House, behind
Bob Dulude's six hitter, blasted
Lloyd, 10-2.
Wenley's win pits them against
Michigan House next week, in the
championship encounter.
Leading, 1-0, going into the
fourth stanza, Wenley knocked in
three more markers, making it
4-0: Lloyd then countered with a
home run by Bob Anderson with
a mate aboard. Not satisfied with
a two run lead, Wenley bounded
back with three in each of the
remaining innings.
Willy Mueller was the big gun
for Wenley, tagging three singles
in four appearances at the plate.
Lloyd, in previous games this
season looked very good, but num-
erous errors and mediocre hitting
proved to be its downfall. Com-
bined with these factors was a
nine hit Wenley attack and some
fine Dulude hurling.

of his improvement was due to the
skillful coaching of his father,
who is "my biggest critic."
Wisniewski played but one year
of high school ball and received
much of his early experience play-
ing in 'the Detroit Fireman's
Five Lifetime One Hitters
Holding an 18-5 overall record
in the past three campaigns, Wis-
niewski's lifetime total of five one-
hitters is particularly impressive,
but that no-hitter has always been
just out of reach.
As a freshman appearing in his
first game he threw the single one-
hitter in a game against Ohio
State. In the strikeout department
Wisniewski's best effort was 21 in
a nine inning stint.
According to Wisniewski, "My
most thrilling game was shutting
out Ohio University to get Michi-
gan to Omaha for the NCAA fi-
nals. This was his first pitching as-
signment since recovering from a
sore arm that plagued him during
much of his sophomore year. Wis-
niewski, always eager to take his
turn on the mound, pitched sev-
eral games before anyone knew of
his ailment.
Another game that he remem-
bers well, is one played against
Wisconsin during his freshmen
year. Harvey Kuenn, playing at
that time for the Badgers, got eight
hits in ten tries in a double header,
with several of them coming off
Good Fast Ball
Relying primarily on a good fast
ball and an occasional change-up,
Wisniewski looked quite good ear-
ly in the season. Particularly out-
standing was his 26 innings of
scoreless pitching during . the
southern tour, which he explains
by saying "The breaks were with
Wisniewski's performance early

in the regular season was little
short of sensational while compil-
ing a 4-0 record. As far as the Big
Ten goes, his luck has taken a.
turn for the worse, winning two
and dropping three, Wisconsin and
Illinois being the teams to fall
victims to his fine hurling. High-
lighting the Illinois game was Wis-
niewski's slamming a round trip-
per, the first of his college career.
Three Losses Follow
Closely following these kwo wins,
was a heartbreaking 4-3 loss to
the Minnesota Gophers. This last
weekend was also a .losing battle
for Wisniewski, due to a pair of
loses to rival Michigan State.
The first, on Friday, ended, 3-0,
and the second wound up with
the Wolverines and Wisniewski
on the short end of a 4-3 verdict.
Most of the season Wisniewski has
been "not fully satisfied with my
fastball; it's not consistant."

Betters Status
With Golfers
"He's on the way up, but he
needs a good push," was Coach
Bert Katzenmeyer's comment on
sophomore Skip MacMichael.
MacMichael's most recent ap-
pearance on the green was in the
triangular meet against Purdue
and Ohio State, held here last
Saturday. He turned in a fair per-
formance, but feels he could have
done a lot better.
In his own behalf, he stated,
"I just can't seem to shoot consis-
tently. I guess the actual playing,
more than anything else, will im-
prove that point."
The lanky golfer's first appear-
ance of the season was during the
squad's Southern jaunt in April,
when he got off to a pretty good
start, shooting in the seventies. In
the meet with the University of
Detroit he was second man low
for the Wolverines, putting to-
gether two rounds of 40-37 for a
total of 77, and edging out a win
over Ray Maisevich, who shot 80.
Played Infrequently
MacMichael played infrequent-
ly during the following meets,
shooting erratically. Then in a
match with Northwestern he pull-
ed through with rounds of 79 and
80, to tally 159, third man low.
His golf career began when he
became a caddy at the Detroit
Golf Club. From there he landed
a position on the squad at U. of D.
High, where he played only two
years, being ineligible his senior
year. He also qualified for the
Detroit all-city golf team.
He points up his best perform-
ance as that against Michigan
State, when he shot two rounds
of 77, but the match he remem-
bers first was last year in the
Western Junior Championships,
when he lost in the finals by one
down to Herb Clance of Iowa.

Two of Michigan's all-time
greats in the football world were
named yesterday to the State of
Michigan's "Hall of Fame."
The late Fielding H. Yost and
Willie Heston, the only two foot-
ball representatives, were chosen
in the balloting of state newspa-
per sports editors and radio and
television sports directors.
Yost, who guided the Michigan
football fortunes for almost a
quarter of a century, will go down
in sports history as one of the im-
mortals of the game. He was cred-
ited with inventing the "key half-
back" which is known in modern
day football as the tailback. Yost
was also the first coach to use
the nine-man line. He originated
the first blocking methods and de-
vised many ingenious, simple sig-
nal-calling systems.
Takes Football Helm
Yost took over the Michigan
football reins in 1901. He fostered
four undefeated, untied squads-
in 1902, 1904, 1918, and 1923. His
teams in the first five years of his
tenure at Michigan were known as
the "point-a-minute" teams and
eight Western Conference cham-
pionships were won while Yost
was at the helm. In addition, he
coached the first Wolverine grid-
iron squad to play in the Rose
Bowl series, winning the 1902 clas-
sic, 49-0, over Stanford.
Yost assumed the post of Michi-
gan's athletic director in 1925 and
remained until 1940. Each year,
athletes who have gained schol-
astic prominence are now pre-
sented with Fielding H. Yost
Heston All-American
Heston, a halfback on early Wol-
verine grid squads, was the first
all-American to be selected from
Michigan. He was named on Wal-
ter Camp's "dream teams" in 1903
and 1904.

Others who were named to the
"Hall of Fame" were Ty Cobb,
former player and manager of the
Detroit Tigers, one of the great-
est hitters and baserunners in
baseball history; Jack Adams, for-
mer coach and now manager of
the Detroit Red Wings' National
Hockey League champions; Joe
Louis, former heavyweight boxing
champion; and Walter Hagen, one
of golf's immortals.
Plans for a shrine to place the
awards to the men honored were
announced earlier this week by the
Michigan Week committee on
sports. Six members were to be
chosen in 1955 and three each suc-
ceeding year as part of the Michi-
gan Week celebration. One of the
three is to be selected posthu-
