Victors Move Into Second Place Finals;
Kappa Sigma, Triangle Also Triumph

By JIM KENT
Alpha Tau Omega moved into

the game was highlighted by sev-
eral spectacular aerials. A T O
struck quickly in the first half
on a short pitch from Davidson to
Ken Bottoms in the end zone. The
point after touchdown was picked
up on a pass from Davidson to
Bill Booth.
Alpha Epsilon Pi came back on

a 40-yard pass from Harvey Rut-
stein to Don Mazin. The try for
point misfired and ATO led, 7-6.
It widened this gap before the
half ended on another pass from
Davidson-this time to Dave Ward.
Triangle Wins
In the third-place playoffs, Tri-
angle rolled over Phi Kappa Tau,
20-0, while Kappa Sigma squeaked

Just another perfect season!
Such a boast has become quite
common around Ann Arbor High
School. Out of the last seven foot-
ball seasons, four have ended with
perfect records, while two have
been stained by only a single tie.
38 Straight
This gives Ann Arbor and Coach
Hank Fonde the top prep record
in Michigan, and certainly one of
the best in the country. The over-
all record since 1949, Fonde's first
year as head^ coach of the Ann
Arbor team, stands at 52 victories,
two ties, and a single defeat. At
present they are on the crest of a
38-game unbeaten streak, the
longest is Michigan's Class A high
school football history.
In the Six-A League the Pioneers
have a 32-game unbeaten string,
which includes a single deadlock
with Battle Creek which occurred
in the mud of Wines Field last fall.
For the past seven years they have
been champions of their league six
times, while they were forced to
share the crown with Battle Creek
last year. On Wines Field they
have a 29-game winning streak,
marred only by that same tie with
Battle Creek.
Stars Graduate
With only two starters back
from last year's Six-A co-cham-
pions, the other teams in the con-
ference all thought that this was
the season to stop Fonde's charges.
But they were unable to do it, as
Fonde developed as good a team as
any he has had in the past. Only
Battle Creek came close to stop-
ping the explosive Ann Arbor ag-
gregation.
Coach Ted Kjolhede's Bearcats
almost did the trick this fall. Spir-

Vernon, Porterfield to Bolster Red Sox;
Nats Also Strengthened in Nine-Man Deal
By BRUCE BENNETT

The Boston Red Sox, a pennant
contender right down to the wire
in the 1955 American League race,
firmly established themselves to
be every bit as tough in 1956 by
virtue of Tuesday's five for four
trade with Washington.
In obtainin Mickey Vernon, the
Sox took a big step in plugging
their long existing gap at first
base. There is no telling how
much longer the aging veteran can
play regularly, but Manager Mike
Higgins intends to platoon him
with young Norm Zauchin.
Pitcher Needed
One commodity that the Red
Sox lacked last year was an es-
tablished fourth starting pitcher
behind Frank Sullivan, Tom Brew-
er and Willard Nixon. The acqui-
sition of Porterfield, one of the
league's better pitchers, potential-
ly fills this vacancy.
The other two players obtained,
pitcher Johnny Schmitz and out-
fielder Tom Umphlett, appear to
be destined to bolster the Boston
bench.
There is no doubt that Washing-
ton had to make the move. Picked
to finish seventh this year, the
Nats couldn't even do that,
dropping behind Baltimore in the
last few weeks of the campaign
to end up a poor eighth.

Something had to be done and
Calvin Griffith, named presidentl
of the club less than a week ago,
lost no time in trying to find the
answer. He made a smart move in!
trading away Vernon while he still
was able to get a good price for'
him. The much sought after Por-
terfield and Manager Chuck Dres-j
sen were reported to be at odds
and it was a general feeling that
the pitcher would not be back in
1956.
Outfielder Karl Olson and Pit-

Athletic Managers Council
cher Dick Brodowski appear to be
the big ones that the Nats Were
after. Olson, hidden behind the
strong Boston outfield, has re-
ceived little chance to prove him-
self so far. He will very likely
get the first shot at the center-
field spot in Washington, covered
not to Dressen's satisfaction by
Umphlett and Johnny Groth last
year.

The other three players have
had virtually no big league ex-
perience, but fit nicely into Wash-
ington's youth movement. Pitcher
Al Curtis, reputed to be a tough
man in relief, 'could aid the Nats
in this department, where they
were completely lacking last sea-
son. Young Truman Clevenger
could also help out along this
line.
Fleet Fielder
Outfielder Neil Chrisley, the
fifth player involved, was one of
the leading hitters in the South-
ern Association last year. He will
get a shot at the left field job,
filled last year by Roy Sievers,
who now moves in to first base.
