Crisler remarked that he didn't see

the men we have high hopes for
come through we'll have a good aver-
age team."
He intends to use the same general
style of play this year as he did last
with the two chief offensive forma-
tions being the unbalanced line with
the single wing and the unbalanced

Thick Sole Featured
Outstanding trait of all bootery
this fall will be thick sole, with new
rubber and cork combination leading
the field. Crepe and gum soles saw
their last season last year, taking a
death blow because of inability to
retain shape.
Thick rubber soles (the thicker the
better) came in on saddles, were
quick to be the vogue for all-type
shoes. Rubber was good, but it wore
at the heel too quickly, which meant
a very expensive repair job was
necessary for a shoe that otherwise
remained in good condition. Manu-
facturers obliged by putting cork in-
to the rubber-and lo! a material
that will outlast the shoes themselves.
No. 1 on the hit parade will agin
be the yellow and light brown sport
shoes, that are so popular because
they go for summer, winter, after-
noon and evening wear equally well.
Uppers will be made of every leather

and in most styles. But the' woven-
strip and moccasin-type uppers have
seen their heyday and will not be

leather, with a rawhide lace that
loops through two holes, slightly off
center. A turned up round toe lends
a boot effect, and a thick composition

ing a very rugged and rustic note to
a really smart shoe. It is not espec-
ially new, but lowered prives by local.
booteries will enhance its popularity.
Cordovans For Evenings
Evening wear will see a surprising
return of cordovans in wing-tips but
more strongly in plain-toed Oxfords.
Chocolate-colored substitute leathers
that tried to replace the somewhat
expensive cordovan were a thorough
fiasco last year, and unfortunately
served to de-popularize the real thing.
But the genuine rich brown, hardiest
-of-all leathers will return strongly
for evening and afternoon wear as
Interesting note in shoe-wear is
the young fad that started last year,
and is bound to be stronger this
year. Bold Michigan men grew tired
of watching engineers and forestry
students slosh carelessly through the
snow in huge boots, while they suf-
fered wet feet in thin-soled shoes.
They accordingly raided downtown
low-priced shoe stores and returned
to campus with ankle-high workmen's
boots that boast brass rivets, stell-
plated heels, boot straps and double
thick rubber soles. And for a cold or
slushy winter they're unbeatable.
Best point of them-they never cost
more than $2, and are built like
Michigan's Golf Coach
A coach at the University for more
than 14 years, Ray Courtright has
served as assistant football coach
in addition to serving as head golf
mentor. His undergraduate days at
Oklamoa University are especially
notable fo rthere he won 12 varsity
letters and a Phi Beta Kappa key.
Before coming here in 1926 he was a

who have little chance of equalling+
the record set last year but, with a bitt

and John Leidy and Don Jones, jun-
iors from Ann Arbor and Detroit:
respectively, have been poking the
pellet about the difficult University
course in the low,80's during the
past few months and should also see
action next year.
Freshman Coach Trueblood has
been working with a promising squad
of yearlings during the past season.
He reports that the two most out-
standing prospects for the varsity
are Ben Smith of Fort Myers, Fla.,
and Buel Morley of Toledo, Ohio,
who probably will be high up in the
race for starting positions.
Other new sophomores which have
been noted as possible candidates by
Moaches Courtright and Trueblood
are Earl J. Drake of Kalamazoo;
Robert B. Arnold of Buffalo, N.Y.;
Walter A. Schmid, Jr. of Fort Worth,
Tex.; Robert Fife of Detroit; Morrie
Boas of Chicago; Dick James of Flint,
and Bill Courtright of Ann Arbor.

If the rest of our team is as good1
as the infield, Michigan will have
a highly successful baseball season]
in 1941, was the statement made byt
Coach Ray Fisher recently in dis-
cussing the Wolverines diamond
This is an especially optimistic
note for two reasons, first, because
Coach Fisher is the conservative,
redisent type of individual and,
secondly, because Michigan lost her
only .300 hitters in center-fielder
Charles Pink and left-fielder Fred
Although Michigan ended in fifth
place in the Big Ten last year, the
Wolverines lost many excellent
chances of taking first place due to
the failure of the team to take the
close games, and consequently lost
nine contests by one run.
The whole infield, composed of
Captain-elect Bill Steppon, George
Ruehle, Mike Sofiak, and Bud Cham-
berlain returns intact, and after hav-
ing functioned as a unit for a whole
season, should provide the Varsity
with one of the strongest inner cori-
dans in many years. Utility-man
Johnny Erpelding, sophomore Duane
Pagel, a first baseman, and Wayne
Christenson, a second baseman, will
be on hand to press the regulars for
their jobs.
George Harms will back to handle
the catching duties, backed up by
Bob Westfall and Dick Wakefield, a
chunky freshman who has shown a
considerable amount of ability be-
hind the plate.
For the outfield berths, Fisher can
call on veterans Davie Nelson and
Don Holman. The third post will
probably be filled by any one of the
excess infield catching candidates
who displays sufficient batting power.
The pitching staff as usual will be
Ray's chief problem. The graduation

beautiful hills south of Ann Arbor,

the golfer who likes his game the

Scotland's famous St. Andrews has
long well-watered fairways which
are trapped generously. The greens
are the largest in this district, and
their fast rolling surfaces call for
the greatest putting skill.
Construction was started on the
course 11 years ago, and was com-
pleted two years later at a dost of
$365,000. The course is watered by
springs under the Stadium situated

could work along the same lines as Evashevski in clearing the way for the
more fleet gallopers.
Relief in the backfield . . . well, don't worry, we have some of that too.
Rugged George Ceithaml, the quarterback, for example. The 185 pound
Chicago lad was awarded the Chicago Alumni award for attitude, progress
and promise during the spring drills. Bob Zimmerman, who saw considerable
action last campaign at the fullback slot, will also be back for more.
Except for the tackle posts, the line seems well fortified. At the ends,
Crisler has Ed Frutig and Joe Rogers, as well as Ed Czak and Whitey Frau-
mann, all returning as capable veterans. At the guards, Bill Melzow, Milo
Supkup, Ralph Fritz and sophomore Bob Kolesar, a powerful looking pros-
pect with a trick knee, will all be on hand. Bob Ingalls will take over Archie
Kodros' center p5osition. And even at the tackles, considered the probable
weak points in the Wolverine line, Rueben Kelto, Rudy Sengel, the gigantic
sophomore, Al Wistert, a brother of Michigan's former great Whitey Wistert,
and Bob Flora are nothing to exhibit your hay fever at.,
But Michigan needs plenty of power to hold its own this campaign.
That's mainly due to schedule which you'd have to go a long way to call
delightful. Last year, we chucgled at the dawn of the season. "Michigan
has its tough games every other week," we bragged, "and breathers in
between." A national championship was supposed in the bag. But one
of the so-called "breathers" tripped us up . . . that fateful Illinois get-
together . . . and the summer championship was just so much propa-
For that reason alone, we're going to be a little more careful this term.
We reject all offers for a summer crown for the Wolverines. Frankly, we
look ahead to a hard fought campaign, especially since we no longer have
Chicago around to build up our batting average.
