Newhouser Signs as Baltimore Scout

Delt Swimmers Edge

Theta Xi

By The Associated Press
Hal Newhouser, former great
left-handed pitcher of the Tigers,
is back in Detroit.
This time his capacity is slight-
ly different, as he is - ving the
Baltimore Orioles as their Detroit
area scout.: Ie signed with the
Baltimore club yesterday.
To Concentrate On Pitching
Baltimore's manager, Paul Rich-
ards, who caught .for Newhouser
on the 1945 Detroit contingent,
expects him to concentrate on
pitching talent.
The Orioles have another scout
in the Detroit area who will be
on the lookout for ither youn.
Al Rosen, the Cleveland infielder,
who slumped to a .244 batting av-
erage after winning the American
League's Most Valuable Player
Award in 1953, was eagerly looking
forward to the official start of
baseball spring training today.
The right index finger that

caused Rosen so much troubles last
season apparently is in good
enough shape for him to properly
grip a bat. Al showed that he can
flex the finger while working out
under a hot sun Tuesday.
"If I can bounce back along
swith some of the other players
who had trouble last year like
Bobby Avila and Vic Wertz," he
said, "we'll be a definite pennant
Injuries were also in the news
elsewhere on the major league
Burdette To Begin Training
Manager Charley Grimm of the
Milwaukee Braves said that he
thinks righthander Lew Burdette
will be able to begin spring train-
ing workouts with the club Satur-
day despite his recent pitching
hand surgery.
Burdette hurt his hand last week
when a rusty piece of lawn mower
blade flew off a mower and gashed
his knuckles.

In Baltimore's new quarters at
Scottsdale, Arizona, two Oriole
rookies suffered minor injuries.
Catcher Leo Moncada had his nose
fractured and outfielder Joe Cris-
tello came down with a bruised
heel. Neither is expected to be
sidelined for more than two or
three days.
Cub Rookie Impressive
At nearby Mesa, Bob McKee, a
rookie second baseman up from
Des Moines, showed good batting
power and fancy fielding in a
Chicago Cub workout. The veteran
Hank Sauer also hit several balls
out of the park.
The major leagues, too, were
busy with pen and ink.
Among those who came to terms
in the past two days were Chico
Carrasqual of Cleveland, Jim Pier-
sall of the Boston Red Sox, and
Bob Cerv of the New York Yan-
kees. Carrasquel was acquired
from the Chicago White Sox in a
winter trade.

In Coliseum
Michigan's hockey team is actu-
ally skating on sand!
Strange as it may sound, when
the Wolverines tangle with the
University of Montreal this week-
end the players will be skating
over a sand basing covered by two
inches of ice.
Many other interesting facts can
be gathered from the colorful
history of the Michigan Coliseum.
One of the first indoor rinks in
this section of the country, the
Coliseum was built in 1910 by a
private family.1
There was a balcony in the origi-
nal structure, so it was put to use
for roller skating also.
Rink Bdught In 1925
The University bought the Coli-
seum in 1925, and it was then that
Michigan's entrance into the col-
legiate hockey world began. Origi-
nally in the Big Ten hockey league,
the Wolverines switched to the
WIHL eight years ago.
Seating capacity in the old
Coliseum was 1100. Six years ago'
the structure was remodeled, and
the large north side stands were
added, boosting the capacity to
The ice is resurfaced three times
daily by a hot-water hose with a
sprayer attachment. How are the
blue lines put on?-After a thin
layer of ice is present, water color
is painted in the desired spots,
allowed to dry, then the final sheet
of ice is applied.

A case of round shoulders at the
age of seven led Nick Wiese to start'
his career in gymnastics.
On the advice of his doctor
Wiese took up the sport at this
early age and has been continuing

gymnastics team this season, per-
forming in the tumbling, free ex-
ercise, trampoline, high-bar and
flying ring events. Last year, Wiese
was undefeated on the flying rings
until the Big Ten meet.
Wiese points to two experiences
in gymnastics which stand out as
his greatest thrills. The first came
when at 15, he won the all-around
National Junior Division Gymnas-
tics Championship of Holland.
Wiese's next great moment came
when the Wolverine gymnastics
squad , recently upset defending
champion Illinois.
Wiese pointed out that his pur-
pose in coming to Michigan was
to get an education at a good col-

came in third to cut the margin to
one point, 11-10.
In the 50-yard freestyle race
Theta Xi rallied as Arnold Proehl
and Lee McLaughlin took first and
second places. Although the win-
ners' Don Stuart grabbed third,
Theta Xi had established an 18-12
In the next race the Delts re-
taliated with Larry Taylor and
Ken Schoof swimming to the first
two places in the 25-yard back-
stroke, while Theta Xi's Ken Fow-
ler had to settle for third. This
put the Delts back in the lead by
one point.
Hockstead Wins
In the next race Ray Hockstead
grabbed first for the Delts, but
Dave Harris and Norm Gersabeck
took second and third in the 25-
yard freestyle to give the Delts
only a two-point lead going into
the final relay.
This meant that the meet's re-
sults rested on the medley relay.
The Delt team of Larry Taylor,
Tom Palmer, and Ray Hockstead
did the trick in :38.0 sedonds over
a challenging Theta Xi team to
win the race and the meet, 31-26.

How times change!
Not so very long ago, an engineer
struggled to obtaina degree.
Yet afterwards he just couldn't find a
job that would let him utilize his
hard-earned knowledge, much less start
to build a career. Today, however,
'< r {the demand for engineers exceeds
the supply ... so much so that there
are not enough to go around.
We need engineers and skilled
technicians. That hundreds of other
companies do, too, is extremely well
evidenced merely by thumbing through
your newspapers and magazines.
Why should you choose us above them?
Perhaps you shouldn't. Neither should
you come to that decision without
first becoming fully aware of our
record... who we are, what we
do, where our future lies. For, in
whatever field you choose to
pursue a career, your transition from
neophyte to veteran will not depend
on ability alone. Without ample
opportunities to demonstrate your
talents, you'll not be able to prove your
potential value in any industry.
We would like to tell you about
our company. We hope, too, that you
will reciprocate and give us the opportunity
to evaluate you. You can do this
