Tryouts Report for Basketball Squad

NE OF THE highlight attractions of the year will take place August 30,
when the best college stars in the country that Coach Lynn Waldorf
could summon to his aid, will tackle the unknown quantity of the Chicago
Bears in Dyche Stadium.
Coach Waldorf has at his disposal eight former Ohio State gridmen,
and it may be possible that he will start seven players of the 1942 national
*and Big Ten champion Buckeye squad for the All-Stars. This is probably
the greatest number of candidates from any one school since this annual
r summer game was innovated eleven years ago.
Gene Fekete and Paul Sarringhaus, who performed in the Buckeye
backfield previously but have been in the armed service for over a year,
Joined the squad recently and have already established themselves in
the mind of the All-Star squad's coaches. Fekete was the Big Ten's
outstanding sophomore fullback in '42, while Sarringhaus, a bruising
runner, played the tailback position.
The biggest number of Buckeye representatives is on the front line,
where the Ohioans have Jack Dugger, end; Bill Willis and Forrest Mc-
Cafferty, tackles; Lynn Houston and Bob Jabbusch, guards, with Gordon
Appleby taking over the pivot post. Thus, if the Buckeyes had one more
lineman, they could easily field a better than average complete line for the
All-Stars. r
BILL WILLIS, a six foot, 220-pounder, has been an outstanding per-
former for Ohio State for two years and captained last year's squad.
While playing for the '42 champion squad, Willis blacked one of the few
kicks that has ever been blocked against the Wolverines in Coach
"Fritz" Crisler's tenure at Michigan. With the added experience he
picked up last fall, there is no doubt that Willis will be counted upon
heavily in the All-Star classic.
Dugger tips the scales at 210 pounds, is 6 ft. 4 in. tall, and is well
coordinated for his size. His speed is attested by the fact that he was on
the first string basketball squad for State, which won the Big Ten title
last fall. His pass catching leaves little to be desired, and the Glenn
Dobbs to Dugger pass combination is being hailed as a chief surprise for
the Bears.
One of the few All-Americans on hand for this tilt is Houston,
who is also in the army at present. Houston is not very big, but he
has demonstrated his ability more than once, and should be one of
the bulwarks of the All-Star line. These men from the Buckeyes,
along with the other collegiate stars on hand should present a formid-
able .array of talent.
While on the other side of the fence, the Bears started their practice
with 50 candidates, a majority of whom are comparative unknowns in the
professional ranks. For a while it looked like none of the members
of the 1943 world championship squad were coming back, and Ray
"Scooter" McLean, a fast back, is the only one of importance that has
reported for practice so far.
OWEVER, the Bears suffered another setback in their plans when
Danny Fortmann, brilliant guard and mainstay of the line, announced
that his medical duties would be too much for him and that he would
not be able to sign a contract to play this year.
Though the Bears have some excellent players this season the squad
will be green, and veterans like Sid Luckman, Bulldog Turner, Fortmann
and Bronko Nagurski, who made the Bears the scourge of the Western
Division, cannot help but be missed.
As I sit back and listen to the names of some of these grid stars
like Dugger, Tommy James, Houston, Fekete and Sarringhaus, it seems
very natural to me, because I played against most of them in high school,
and their names are almost as familiar as my own-maybe that's why I
will go out on a limb and pick the All Stars over the Bears. But part
of the reason could be that the critics observations of Luckman's value to
his team could have won me to their side.

$42,500 Prize
Nelson, McSpaden
Favored in Contest
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, Aug. 23.- Golfdom's
giddiest whirl with some of the con-
fusion eliminated by three days of
qualifying rounds, gets under way
over the 72-hole medal play route
tomorrow as George S. May presents
his three-ply Woman-Amateur-Pro
All-American race for $42,500 over
Tam O'Shanter's rolling terrain.
Field Cut
Twenty-six Simon pures, survivors
of a starting field of 384, along with
28 women from an original 49, and
100 of 240 professional entrants, were
still in there ready to pitch and putt
for the large lucre.
Most of the "good ones" did not
appear in the qualifying tests, being
exempt along with an unknown num-
ber of servicemen under the quaint
rules set up for the seven-day merry-
go-round which permits the stars to
go directly into competition. All the
hot-shots will be in the field, with
Byron Nelson of Toledo, O., and Har-
old (Jug) McSpaden of Philadelphia
favored in the professional race
which will net the winner some $13,-
462.50-a sum which no golfer has1
ever taken from a single tournament
up to now.
McSpaden Wins
McSpaden and Nelson in a prac-
tice warm-up today beat Bob Hamil-
ton, new P.G.A. champion, and Sam
Byrd by three strokes in a 12-hole
match, each of the favorites being
one under par, as was Byrd.
Today's professional qualifier, due
to start at 8 a.m., didn't get away
until 11 because of a heavy rain, and
the late starters were still hacking
their way around when darkness fell.
The best the pro's could do was a
pair of 68's, turned in by Henry E.
Williams, Jr., of Royersford, Pa., and
Claude Harmon of Grosse Pointe
Woods, Mich., each of whom ripped]
two strokes off par on each half of
the course.
Furgol Leads
Their scores, however, 'were still
one over the brilliant 67 with which
Ed Furgol, Detroit Public Linkster,
paced the amateur field Monday.
While the amateurs needed scores of
75 orabetter to get into the title play,
77 was good enough to A't into the
professional fold.
Darkness halted the qualifier with
a half-dozen players still on the
course, but only Ray Mangrum of
Los Angeles and Eddie Held of St.
Louis had much chance to break into
the select fold when they finish to-
morrow.
Only five players of the big field
were able to break par, Bud William-,
son of Lincoln, Nebr., getting a 70,
and Chick Rutan of Birmingham,2
Mich., and Steve Kovach of Taren-
tum, Pa., making his first start as a
professional, getting 71 each. Six
others matched the card.
Dickey, Hulse Graduate
From Training School
NEW YORK, Aug. 23-UP)-Lieut.
William M. (Bill) Dickey, former New
York Yankees' catcher, and Ensign
William F. Hulse, former New York
University runner and America's
fastest outdoor miler, were in a class-
of 858 officers graduated today at the
United States Naval Training school
at Fort Schuyler. Also in the class
were Ensign Irving A. Hall, who play-
ed football with the Philadelphia
Eagles, and Ensign Maurice M.
Craft, Jr., former outfielder with
Boston Red Sox farm clubs.

Coach Barclay Issues
Call for Candidates
Only Two Civilians Respond to Coach's Call;
New Prospective Cagers Undergo Scrimmages
In response to a call for civilian tryouts for this year's Michigan
basketball team, Coach Bill Barclay was confronted with 27 prospective
cagers consisting of 23 Naval trainees, two Marines and only two civilians.
However, Coach Barclay is issuing another call for civilians and any
other persons eligible to play on the cage team. Those who are interested
should report to Barclay on Friday between 3:00 and 5:30 at the I-M
Building.
__ Coach Barclay said that several

MARQUETTE HOPEFULS-Coach Tom E. Stidman (right) is shown

will be in his third season on the Hilltop varsity.
NICE GOING, BOYS:
Newliouser, Trout Installed
In '20 Game Winners' Club'

NEW YORK, Aug. 23-(R'-Hal
Newhouser and Paul "Dizzy" Trout
are traveling in rather select com-
pany these days. They are the new
members of Detroit's "20-game Win-
ners' Club," which, since the Ameri-
can League was organized in 1900,
has had only 13 names on the roster.
Trout, ace right hander, followed
Newhouser into the 20-game victory
class when he defeated the New York
Yankees last Sunday, and it marked
the sixth occasion that the Tigers
have had two or more 20-game win-
ners simultaneously.
Killian, Mullin Win 20
The 13 members of this mythical
club won 20 or more games 26 times,
with the highlight of concentrated
pitching strength coming in the
club's first championship season-
1907-when Pat Donovan, Ed Kil-
lian and George Mullin each won 20
or more, and Ed Siever won 19.
The four accounted for 89 of the Ti-
gers' 92 victories that year.
Killian and Mullin had collaborat-

ed two years earlier to gain 20 tri-
umphs each, with Donovan only one
game shy of that figure. Mullin was
joined by a newcomer in the 20-game
circle in 1909, when Ed Willett made
the grade.
Two Win 23 in 1915
Another pair, George Dauss and
Harry Covelskie, teamed to notch
23 victories each in 1915, but not un-
til 1934 did the club again boast two
20-game men. That year Tommy
Bridges and Schoolboy Rowe won 24
and 22 games, respectively.
Until Trout and Newhouser came
along this year there were no more
double winners, although Bobo New-
som played a single role in 1439 and
1940 and Trout made it alone last
year.
Mullin elected himself to the 20-
game club five times. Covelskie,
Bridges and Dauss made it three
times, with the first two doing it in
successive years. Joe Yeager in 1900,
and Ed Summers in 1908 were other
lone 20-game performers.

Young Ohioan
I s Contestant
In AAU Meet
Jimmy McLean May
Steal Contest Spotlight
GREAT LAKES, Ill., Aug. 23.-(/P)
-Entirely in keeping with the times,
a 13-year-old lad-Jimmy McLane,
Akron, O., distance swimmer-may
steal the spotlight in the war-cur-
tailed National AAU Outdoor Swim-
ming Championships here Friday
through Sunday.
The three-day meet, which despite
its designation will be held indoors
in a giant pdol where Navy recruits
are taught to swim, will have a com-
paratively small field of 60 entries,
few nationally promient.
Jimmy, who won the Men's Na-
tional AAU distance crown over a
four-mile course at Williams Lake,;
Kingston, N.Y., several weeks ago, is
entered in the 400, 800 and 1,500-
meter events.
In the 400 and 800 meter races,
Jimmy will buck up against the only
returning champion, Gene Rogers of
Columbia, who won both events last
year at New London, Conn., at 440,
and 880 yards.
Also entered in the 400 and 800
meter affairs are Keo Nakama, Ohio
State, and Jerry Kerschner, star
freestyler who swam on Great Lakes'
1944 National AAU indoor title squad
but now represents the Bunker Hill,
Ind., Naval Air Station.
The 100 and 200 meter freestyle
sprints, in which champion Alan
Ford of Yale will not defend, should
be a toss-up between Kerschner and
Achilles Pulakos, former Michigan
star and key man on Great Lakes'
revised squad.

candidates from these newly report-
ing groups would be chosen to aug-
ment the 18 members of the squad
who have been practicing since the
beginning of the semester.
The candidates who showed up
today were put through a scrim-
mage so that Barclay could see
what they looked like and see what
experience they had. This was
done so that the part of the boys
who had some previous experience
could be weeded out from those
who didn't.
This is the first time in the history
of basketball at the University of
Michigan that practice has been held
during the summer semester. The
idea, no doubt, is to form a team
that will be able to put forth a better
showing in the Big Ten Conference
and other non-conference games
than last year's team did; and.per-
haps make this year a perfect year
for Wolverine athletics.
Since the start of the semester, a
hopeful group of Naval and Marine
trainees and one civilian have been
practicing the fundamentals of> the
game. As the time passed the orig-
inal group -of 23 candidates was cut
to the present 18. If Coach Barclay
has the same number of met on the
squad as there were last year the
squad should consist of 25. or so
men.
There were no outstanding can-
didates in the group that reported
today. However, the original
squad that began in the first part
of the semester had several men of
note. Tommy King, Robb Rut-
ledge and Bob Stevens were the
only returning men from last years
team.

Ex-Michigan Athlete
Married at Quantico
Lt. Roert Stenberg, USMC, a for-
mer University of Michigan football,
baseball and hockey player and a
member of Sigma Chi fraternity, was
married to Helen Steinke of Milwau-
kee, Wis. on Saturday, August 5 in
the Post Chapel at Quantico, Va.
While at the University, Stenberg
was a member of the football team of
1943 which was famous for its "seven
oak post" line. He was a substitute
fullback and was colorful due to his
shortness of stature.
A sparkplug on the baseball team,
Stenberg was the only member of
the squad to chew tobacco.. With no
forehand knowledge of hockey, he
tried out for the team and fought his
way to a position on the squad. Sten-
berg was the leader of the team due
to his fiery spirit.
The newly-married couple came
here for a short visit with the lieu-
tenant's parents and are now on their
way to Oceanside, Calif. There Lt.
Stenberg, will take up his duties with
the Fleet Marine Force at Camp
