laentz Elected Captain for '56;
Team Selects Barr Most Valuable
Lions Take Cassady in Football Draft
To Replace Retiring Halfback Walker
By DAVE GREY
No. 85--rugged right end Tom
Maentz -- has been chosen by his
teammates as Michigan's 1956
In a meeting of this year's let-
termen yesterday noon, the popu-
lar junior from Holland, Mich.,
was elected to succeed 1955's lead-
er, guard Ed Meads.
In the other big election, junior
halfback Terry Barr from Grand
Rapids, Mich., was named as the
team's "most valuable player.
The Wolverines' last captain at
the end position, many seniors will
remember, was Merritt (Tim)
Green, who led the 1952 gridders
in a five-won, four-lost season.
Preceding Meads were two other
linemen, Dick O'Shaughnessy and
Ted Cachey in the fall of '53 and
Oosterbaan Also Captain
It also is interesting to note that
Head Coach Bennie Oosterbaan, a
three-time All-American end,.cap-
tained the 1927 Wolverines as a
Maentz's rise to the leadership
spot for next year's hopeful team
is quite a story in itself. Many
have felt that the 6'2", 219-lb.
flanker has been one of the most
underated players in recent 'M'
history. Respected not only as a
player but also as a fine individual,
Maentz is expected by the coaches
to follow in the footsteps of Michi-
gan's other great grid leaders.
Statistically, Maentz ranked as
one of the best ends in the country
along with his "running mate" on
