NEWS + VIEWS + COMMENT
By BILL MULLENDORE, Daily Sports Editor
Offensive contact drills again dom-
inated the Wolverines' football work-
out yesterday afternoon as the vet-
eran Blue squad ran off both passing
and ground plays against a defensive
Early in the practice, the two
squads were split in half, with head
coach "Fritz': Crisler, end coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan, and back coach Earl
Martineau instructing the Blue ends,
and backs and line coach "Biggie"
Munn tutoring the linesmen. Art
Valpey supervised both sections of
the White group.
Coaches Shift Lineup
Several changes were made in the
Blue lineup from Wednesday's drill,
although many of the same players
got a chance to play. In the back-
field, George Chiames, a freshman
from Freeport, Ill., alternated at full-
back with Jim Foltz, 185-pound
spring practice standout. Danny
Dworsky, another fullback candidate,
will be out for a few days with a
minor shoulder injury.
Capt. Joe Pansetto again took over
the quarterback post during most of
the drill, sharing the spot with How-
ard Yerges, another veteran back.
Pete Elliot, a Navy transfer, per-
formed capably at left half, along
with Walt Teninga, a freshman from
Morgan Park, Ill.
The other backfield post was shared
by Warren Bentz, a returning letter-
man, and Hank Fonde, a Navy man.
Exceedingly fast, Fonde turned in
several good runs Wednesday and
also performed creditably yesterday.
On the receiving end of the passing
plays were Walt Herschberger and
Ed Bahlow, 200-pound former Wis-
consin and Central Michigan athlete
who also played end Wednesday.
Newcomers Battle for Pivot Post
Jim Rihburger and Bob Swanson, an-
other freshman from Lansing, shared
the center spot. Rihburger was shift-
ed from tackle, where he had been
playing in previous drills. Flanking
the center were John Weyers, a vet-
eran, Dom Tomasi,.freshman base-
ball regular from Flint, and John
Bowler at the guards.
Completing the lineup were Gene
Hinton, a freshman from Drumright,
Okla., George Johnson, a 190-pound
Navy trainee, and Al Wahl, big fresh-
man linesman from Oak Park, Ill., at
Besides Dworsky, Russ Reader, ci-
vilian hurdler on last year's track
team, was also nursing a recent in-
jury. Reader's leg was hurt in an

T IS GETTING TO BE A HABIT among local sports writers to eulogize Ray
Fisher, Michigan baseball coach, and, frankly, we know of no better
person for a columnist's attention.
Fisher has been at Michigan for 25 years now, and seems ready to go
for 25 more. An old, and somewhat greying veteran in years, Fisher con-
tinues to display his typical youthful enthusiasm and boyish spirit every
spring when the time for baseball practice rolls around. As a coach, he
Over the 25-year span, Fisher has proauced no less than nine
Western Conference champions, a record unapproached by any other
Big Ten coach. His 25th team, one of the best Ray has ever tutored,
brought home the ninth crown les than a month ago after going unde-
feated in Big Ten play and losing but one game over the season's route.
FISHER'S COACHING SECRET lies in his ability to take youngsters with
little more than enthusiasm for the game and to train them into top-
flight college ball players. Many of them have gone on up the Major
Leagues, among them the fabulous Dick Wakefield who proved himself worth
every cent of the $52,000 the Detroit Tigers paid him to sign. The latest
to make the jump was centerfield Don Lund, who reportedly was given an
$8,000 bonus for signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
No one who has seen Ray at work with young diamond hopefuls could
fail to notice the quality that, makes him a peer among coaches. That
quality is patience, patience combined with a vast knowledge of the game
gleaned in several years in the Major Leagues as a pitcher, and a pretty
good one, for the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees.
As a matter of fact, we have never met a more patient and perse-
vering man, or one who so thoroughly had the respect of the boys play-
ing for him. More than once we have watched him working over some
young player, slowly ironing out his faults and gradually bringing to him
the confidence and poise that will eventually enable him to leave the
field a winner.
We have seen Ray mold championship ball clubs for two years now,
and have been amazed at the improvements he has wrought with individuals.
More than one boy on each of those teams has only Fisher to thank for his
ever setting foot on a college diamond. And all of them were better ball
players at the end than at the beginning.
RAY'S GREATEST FEAT, in our opinion, was his conversion of Elroy
Hirsch, the man who won four major "M's" in one season, into the best
pitcher in the Western Conference in the incredibly short space of two
months. Hirsch started with less, and finished with more, than any of the
others Fisher worked on.
When Hirsch reported for baseball, his sole experience consisted of a
few games as an outfielder in high school. As far as anyone knows, he
had never thrown a ball from the pitcher's mound. He had a splendid
physique and a fighting heart, and that was all.
Michigan needed pitchers that year, and Hirsch volunteered to try his
hand. He didn't have much at first. He was awkward and clumsy and
knew nothing of pitching technique. But gradually, under Fisher's ever-
watchful eye, he was brought around until toward the end of the season
he ranked with the best of them. He lost only one game, a 3-2 devision to
Western Michigan, and pitched a pair of two-hitters. His earned run
average was slightly more than one per game. Quite a record for a boy
who had never thrown a ball before that spring.
And Fisher has developed others from just as little. He has made
hitters from boys who, at the start, couldn't move a ball out of the infield.
He has turned throwers, into pitchers, "just fair" performers into top-flight
college stars. And his patience has paid off, not only in the win column
but also in the respect he has gained from players and friends alike. Now
perhaps at the pinnacle of his long career, we can only wish him many
more years of successful years of coaching, the sort of coaching that has
already carried him to the top in his profession.

Jim Wilson Outlasts
Newhouser in Duel
By The Associated Press
BOSTON, July 12-Righthander
Jim Wilson tamed the capable Hal
Newhouser in a keen pitching duel
today when the Red Sox opened their
longest stay home of the season with
a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers.
In addition to turning in a six-
hitter, Wilson figured in both of the
Boston runs. He got the first of his
two singles off Newhouser, who was
striving for his 14th win, in the
third- inning and then was batted
around by Jack Tobin and Tommy
McBride. After Skeeter Newsome
doubled in the fourth, Wilson brought
him home with his other hit.
The Detroit run came in the fifth
after Paul Richards singled and
sprained an ankle stealing second.
Richards had to be carried off the
field and, after Harb Walker went
in as his runner, Joe Hoover scored
him with a solid two-base drive,

the cinderella man today as he
steamed into the quarter-finals of
the 27th National Professional Golf
Tournament by downing Mike Turn-

Two straight birdies put him on
even terms with Turnesa and then a
great eagle three moved Nelson out
in front on the 35th hole. They
halved the 36th with par fours and
Turnesa was out of the tournament.
