...Rookie of the Year

NEW YORK (AP)-Tony Kubek,
the New York Yankees valuable
Jack of all trades, and Jack San-
ford, a 19-game winning pitcher
and strikeout ace of the Philadel-
phia Philies, are the 1957 major
league Rookies-of-the-Year.
A 24-man committee of the


Cord uroy

BaseballWriters Association com-
posed of three from each league
city, did the voting. The results
were announced yesterday.
Kubek won by a 23-0 landslide.
The other ballot named Frank
Malzone, Boston Red Sox third
baseman, who previously had been
declared ineligible because he had
103 at bats in a 1956 trial.
Sanford had more competition
but the Phils' 28-year-old right-
hander won impressively. He got
17 votes. His closest rival was a
teammate, first baseman Eddie
Bouchee, who received four votes.
Kubek finished ninth among the
league batters with a .297 average
and at various times, manager
Casey Stengel had Kubek, a Mil-
waukee resident, at shortstop, sec-
ond base, third base, left field and
center field. .
Sanford returned from Army
service in time to appear in- three
games with -the Phils in' late 1956
but not enough to keep him out of
the 1957 rookie 'class. The 6-foot,
175-pound resident of Hatboro,
Pa., finished with a 19-8 won-lost
record and a 3.08 earned run }aver-
Blue Squad
Trips Maize
In Gym Test
The Blue team of the Michigan
gymnastics squad pulled out,their
second straight victory over the
Maize group yesterday afternoon
at the I-M Building, 7612-681/.
Again it was Capt. Ed Gagnier
who proved the star of the meet
as he grabbed three firsts, a second
and a third in the five events. His
Blue squad also gained substantial
points from Wolfgang Dozauer and
Nino Marion who placed high in
all the events.
Besides Gagnier's first on the
side horse, parallel bars and high
bar, Tom Francis and Dana Larson
took the other two top spots.
Francis, who is only a freshman,
beat out Gagnier, 921-92, in the
tumbling even while Larson won
the rope climb in 4.9 seconds,
barely edging Marion who clocked


FIGHT LIKE STEGER-The picture of Michigan captain Herbert

Michigan's hopeful football team
will depart this afternoon for fate-

Head Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
and his 38-man traveling squad
will leave the Union by bus at 2
p.m. and will catch the 2:45 flight
out of Willow Run. They will re-
turn Saturday evening.
Two changes have been made in
the traveling squad, and two other
gridders will be making the trip in
doubtful condition. The replace-
ments are fullback John Herrn-
stein, now recovered from his leg
and foot injury, and end Bob
Johnson. They replace Tony Rio,
fourth string fullback, and injured
end Dave Bowers.
Van Pelt Doubtful Starter
The injury cases that will make
the trip are first-stringers Jim
Van Pelt and Gary Prahst. Van
Pelt has been bothered by a severe
charley horse, and although he is
declared ready for the game by
the team'physician, and partici-
pated in practice yesterday.
Oosterbaan states that he is a
doubtful starter.
Prahst is still bothered by the
leg ailment that has affected him
most of the season, but will be

Pace in Shape
Halfback Jim Pace, who was
cleated in the foot on Wednesday,
was back in top form yesterday,
and will be ready to meet the
Illini tomorrow.
Yesterday's practice session in-
volved both offensive 'and defen-
sive preparation for Ray Eliot's
Illinois eleven. The Wolverines'
were wearing \their traveling jer-
seys, and although it was cold
didn't put on the usual parkas.
After a short session on punts,
place-kicks and extra points, the
linemen spent time on the tackling
dummy rig, while the backs and
ends ran through plays. Much of
the offensive drill was concen-
trated on passes.'
The long practice ended about
5:30 p.m. when the skies began to
get dark with the oncoming eve-
ning. The last portion was spent
running team plays against the
fourth and fifth strings.

This tale is of a man with an
incomplete voc'abulary.
A vocabulary one word less that
of the average man.
The man, Herbert Steger, a
good football player in his college
days at Michigan, good enough
to be captain in 1924.
Michigan had the privilege of
dedicating three new stadiums
that year: Minnesota, Michigan
Agricultural -College and Illinois,
Many Scribes Present
Many newspaper mien covered
the Illinois dedication. The ac-
counts of two of these men are
interesting because of their con-
trasting history.
One account has roared down
through the years as a legend,
It began:
"I saw a ghost ... a galloping
The-day, Qctober 18,1924; the
writer, Grantland Rice; the game,
Red Granges immortal attack of
James Cruisenberry of the Chi-
cago Tribune was the other writer.
Like Rice, he saw Grange grab
the. opening kickoff and streak 95
yards for a touchdown.
He too was awe struck at the
speed with which this-red haired
kid burst Michigan's unbeaten
balloon; four touchdowns and 303
yards gained in the first ten min-
Grange scored a fifth touch-
down, and passed for still another.
Booters Win
In OUhio Tilt
Michigan's soccer club proved
its enurance in last weekend's
games with Dennison and Ohio
The Wolverines journeyed to
Dennison, Ohio with only 11 men
Friday to play a highly rated Den-
nison squad. Paced by the tremen-
dous goal tending of Jose Raines,
the Michigan men were able to eke
out a 1-0 victory.
Center forward Gus Seuscun
scored the lone goal of the game
on a perfect pass from ,,Captain
Bob Burnett, who plays left half-
In a game that was exceedingly
rough, all the Michigan players
had to play the full90 minutes be-
cause of lack of substitutes, as
compared to a Dennison squad
which numbered 25. 1
An gxtremely tired Wolverine
squad played Ohio Wesleyan the
following day. The Michigan team
still had no substitutes available
and once again the 11 players
played the entire game.
A further handicap to the team
was slight injuries inflicted the day
before to Joe Dressler and Bob
Murray who played the game any-
Gus Suescun supplied the offen-
sive punch and Jose Raines once
again provided the defensive
standout, by holding Ohio Wes-
leyan to a 1-1 tie.

When the game ended Cruisen-
berry like, the other men in the
pressbox sat back to write their
stories. From bits of conversation
he knew that the other typewrit-
ers were beating out a staccato
hymnal of tribute to Grange.
An enterprising journalist he
wanted something different.
Chancing on the pictures of a
friendly photographer he

Near the bottom of the pile he,

found it!
A picture of Steger driving for
Michigan's last touchdown.
Cruisenberry wrote his story.
Not a glowing tribute to Grange,
but a tribute to Steger. For in this
picture Steger stood out as a mon-

by Felding H. Yost in hid
Eyes Ablaze
Cruisenberry saw in the picture
Steger, eyes ablaze, struggling for
Michigan's last score, his helmet
long ago knocked from his head.
But more than this he saw Ste-
ger, captain of a badly beaten
Michigan team fighting for every
last inch to score a touchdown
that made the score 3-14 instead
of 39-7.
Cruisenberry like Rice wrote a
phrase in his story .. "Fight like
To the world, Steger and Cruis-,
enberry's phrase have had to take
a backseat to Grange and Rice.
But to Yost and the members of
his teams, who have taken heart
in humiliating and frustrating
games by a half-time re-telling of
the -story, it lives.
Tomorrow at Champaign, a
"galloping ghost" may hover over
the Illinois stadium. But pver that
small section reserved for the
Michigan bench will hoverthe
specter of a hard-driving, fighting
memory. The memory of a detet-
mined Herb Steger, a man who
didn't know the meaning 'of the
word QUIT.

Ever meet a fanatic?

He's got just one thing uppermost in his mind.
If he's looking for a job he's thinking only of-
pay or only of security. Reasonable men, how-
ever, weigh these and many other factors when
they're evaluating career possibilities. Such
factors as opportunity, challenging work, train-
ing, professional associates-things fanatics
never bother to consider.

The Bell Telephone Companies have a book-
let for reasonable men. It's called "Challenge
and Opportunity." It's not the sort of thing
that'll make a fanatic's eyes light up, but it
ought to interest a thoughtful young man-
whatever his college background-who is
weighing career possibilities. Get it from your
Placement Officer or send the coupon.
