In the small group of persons
gathered to watch Michigan run
through its paces at yesterday's
practice sessions was a man who
is familar to all but appeared to be
out of his element.
Leo Durocher, one-time manager
of two National League teams, was
on the job, however, and all busi-
ness. He is currently working for
NBC, doing the color comment for
Coast football games.
His visit to practice was for the
purpose of familarizing himself
with the Michigan offensive set-up
and the players so that words will
come easily during his stint in
broadcast booth.
Durocher seemed tremendously
impressed with both the Michigan
Stadium and the new press box.
Of the stadium he remarked, "IveI
never seen a place that would seat
100,000 people and still have every
seat a good one." The size and skill
of this year's Wolverine squad im-
pressed Durocher and he remarked
to the effect that this seemed like
the best team Michigan has had
since they were last in the Rose
Turning to baseball, principally
the National League race, he said,
"I think Fred Haney's Braves have
better speed and pitching than
Brooklyn, and I think and hope
they'll win."
Here's something of a coinci-
dence. The day Durocher shows up
in Detroit (he's staying there in-
stead of in Ann Arbor for the
weekend) the Tigers' manager,
Bucky Harris resigns. "Had any
calls from Fred Knorr (new Tiger
president) ?" quipped a bystander.
Durocher smiled broadly-and de-
vied everything.

And with some of the new faces
and power on the field, will also
come some new means of support
to help rebuild the lapses of real
enthusaism that have been notice-
able in recent years.
One of the main problems in the
past has been keeping the crowd
alert as when the cheers are com-
ing. This year the cheerleading
squad of Nick Wiese, Ralph Watts,
Jack Campbell, Ed Gagnier, Jim
Hayslett, Dick Kimball, Dana
Larson and Tom Taylor will be
using the microphones of the
Block 'M' section.
More Microphones Expected
These will try to be turned to
reach the majority of the Michi-
gan student body. Also, other mic-
rophones are hoped to be added
soon if this helps. The total num-
ber of usable cheers is going to
be smaller, and only the most
familiar ones will be called for
a special quartet apart from the

THE SPIRIT of '57 is a phrase that has been floating around cam-
pus in recent days ... a new spirit that apparently has been gain-
ing momentum as tomorrow's game nears.
Thanks to the activity of the Wolverine Club and the Michigan
cheerleaders, new efforts are being made to reorganize and revitalize
some of the cheering at the Stadium. It seems a step in the right
direction, as we enter a potentially fine Michigan sports year.
Let's face "subjective" facts. The Michigan football team that
will take the field tomorrow should be stronger than last year's, which
won seven and lost two.

Mike Jacobson, president of the Wolvernie Club that handles the
Block 'M' section and pep rallies, has also been working to boost the
Blue this fall.
FOR EXAMPLE, "the Yellow and Blue" will be printed on the back
of the Block 'M' cards, and plans are in order for pins and other
color devices to be distributed later in the season.
The first pep rally -- a week from tonight, before the Michigan
State game - will be held in the historic cement stands of Ferry
Field, where a stage can be set up. The pep rallies will be reorganized
not only to encourage the Michigan spirit, but also to discourage any
mass raids on the coeds' dormitories. Some Friday afternoon pep ses-
sions at the Union are in the wind.
So when you dodge your way into the giant Michigan Stadium
tomorrow afternoon, be ready to see some new features --- a team, a
press box and a spirit.

Here's How to Play

Richardson, No. 1 player of the
U.S. Davis Cup team, will compete
against Italy, European zone
champion, this weekend although
handicapped by a pulled tendon
in his right foot.
In the draw, Richardson was
paired against Nicola Pietrangeli
with Vic Sexias drawn against Or-
lande Sirola.
Richardson first noticed the ail-
ment after a workout Wednesday.
Early Thursday he went to a hos-
pital where he had his foot taped.
After that he worked out at the
River Club.

fielder Roger Maris threw out the

the ninth inning last night as the

tory for a 1-0 lead over the Roch-
