KRAMER MAKES IMPORTANT CHANGE:
Grid Squad Starts Spring Practice Tomorrow

S T E V E BOROS, Michigan's
sparkling sophomore third base-
man, was adept both at the
plate and in the field in yester-
day's game with Detroit. Boros
hit safely three out of four
times, collecting a single, a
double, and a triple. He also
made a sensational running
catch of a foul.fly hit almost be-
hind the stands.

By DICK CRAMER
Michigan'smost heralded foot-c
ball experiment in recent years
begins tomorrow when the Wolfer-a
ines launch spring practice at 3
p.m. on Ferry Field.
A crew of promising freshmen.
and veteran performers will share
the spotlight in the first of their
off-season training sessions with
the start of Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan's attempts to convert his all-
American left end Ron Kramer to
right halfback.
Several Chsange
Actually, the.Kramer experiment
is but one of several that may take
place during the 201 practice ses-
sions allowed by the NCAA in the
next 36 days. The Wolverines are
scheduled to ened spring drills
May 12 when they stage the an-
nual intra-squad contest in the
Stadium.
Kramer has virtually giten up
his hopes of becoming a nine-
letter athlete by volunteering his
services at Michigan's weakened
wingback position. He'll forego
outdoor track this spring in an
effort to master the backfleld slot
vacated by graduating Wolverine
star Tony Branoff.
Important Switch
If Kramer is successful in the
proposed shift, everything will be
fine for the Maize and Blue. But
other moves will be necessitated
if it is decided to keep the fabu-
lous junior in the line. The future
Wrestlers Win
Two f r e s h m e n Michigan
wrestlers qualified last night in
the regional Olympic tryouts.
Willard Root won in the 125
pound free style class and Karl
Latomski took first in the 114
pound Greco Roman division.
The wins would have en-
abled the two to compete in the
next step of the tournament to
be held in Los Angeles, but be-
cause of school, neither can go.

vised. not to try to speed his, re-
covery' from a winter leg operation.
Oosterbaan and his assistants
will be concentrating on individual
abilities now, leaving for the fall
the bulk of the job of molding the
men into a smooth-playing team.
'Jim Pace will receive much at-
tention in his efforts to gain more

naturalness at left halfback. Like
Kramer, Pace has chosen grid
practice over a promising track
season.
Emphasis On Passing
In order to perfect Michigan's
passing to the level of its catch-
ing, veteran quarterbacks Jim.
Maddock and Jim VanPelt, as well

as freshman Bob Ptacek, will get
special instruction.
Fullback position is almost cer-
tain to go to a newcomer. It is
hoped that freshman John Bern-
stein or Jim Byers, ineligible last
fall, will develop so that the only
returnee, Shannon, will not be
needed at the position.

Gophers Vote
Against 13owl
Pact Renewal.
The faculty of Minnesota Uni-
versity was the only group so far
in the Big Ten to vote against the
renewal of the Rose Bowl Pact
with the Pacific Coast Conference.
This will mean that another
meeting of the athletic represen-
tatives of the schools will have
to be called this spring. If the
members of this group pass the
renewal by a majority vote it will
become effective next fall.
Since Minnesota is the only
school out of the six that have
voted so far, to register negatively,
it seems quite certain that the
pact will be renewed.

Michigan Rifle
Squad Takes
Big Ten Title
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (A$)-
Michigan's rifle team won the Big
Ten season title although they lost
to Wisconsin in the Big Ten rifle
meet championship yesterday.
With the meet scores added to
the season total, the Wolverines
added the season 5634, even
though they lost to Wisconsin by
only one point 1421 to 1420.
Jan Gogulski and Paul Hays of
Michigan were picked by the
coaches for an all star team along
with. Bob Thomas of Indiana,
Richard Dixon of Wisconsin, and
William Einsel and Henry Akers
of Ohio State.
Roberta Gubbins, a junior at
Michigan was ranked seventh by
the coaches. Miss Gubbins shot
281 yesterday, but she will not be
eligible to compete next year be-
cause of a new ruling that women
may not compete in the champion-
ships.
Trailing Michigan for the sea-
son crown were Wisconsin 5609,
Ohio State 5595, Indiana 5569,
Iowa 5536, Illinois 5496, Purdue
5410, and Michigan State 4340.
Thomas and Dixon tied for the
individual championship, but
Thomas won the title with a higher
score in the offhand postilon
shooting.

men interested in trying out as
football managers.,
Anyone interested should re-

THE FINEST IMPORTED
LIGHTWEIGHT RAINWEAR

IL

By JIM BENAGI
"They say nice guys don't win,"
Don Canham, Michigan track
mentor said, "but he did."
Canham was speaking of his
popular shot putter Dave Owen,
present Big Ten champion. As a
"nice guy," Owen is complete-a
hustler, a worker and a team man.
Track is supposed to.be an in-
dividual sport, but it seems as if
the big 220-pound weight man
Owen never heard those words.
During every meet he can be seen
on the inside of the running track,
cheering and shouting his team-
mates on, whether they, are in
first place or last.
Surprise Champion
The husky shot putter emerged
last year from "a possible point-

getter" to a champion within a
period of a few hours. That was
the day of the Big Ten indoor
track meet.
Until that Saturday at Jenison
Field House, Owen was never
much better than a 50-foot putter.
Then a sophomore, the best throw
he could boast was only a couple
of inches past the 50 foot mark.
After the meet was under way,
he sent the 16-pound iron ball
sailing 53'%". This was tops for
the day. In the preliminaries that
day Dave was only fourth best
with a measly put of 47 feet.
Since then Owen has gained
greater distance while successfully
defending his title twice among the
rough Big Ten competition. To
date he is "batting" three-for-
three and still has three more title
tries.
Prep Footballer
At high school in hometown
Milwaukee, Dave was best known
for his football ability. He was
named tackle on one high school
All America squad. It wasn't un-

til he was a junior that he at-
tempted the shot put. Then his
best with the 12-pound shot was
54'11".
His best prep school put is less
than his ever-improving college
mark. His best college throw of
55'18", was accomplished in this
year's Michigan AAU meet. Can-
ham predicts he will throw the
shot 57 feet some day.
Future Engineer
Owen is majoring in aeronauti-
cal engineering, and this influenc-
ed him to come to Michigan. He
has been elected to the junior eng-
ineering honorary, Triangle.
The big junior's favorite pas-
times include jazz, classical music
and sketching,
He follows all sports, but par-
ticipates only on the gridiron and
track.
