dle Michigan's new 150-pound
football squad this fall, it was
announced yesterday.

versity athletic staff since 1925
except for a tour of duty with
the Navy physical education
program, served last fall as one
of the assistant Wolverine foot-
ball coaches. He is a graduate
of Oklahoma A.&M. and a form-
er National Collegiate Wrest-
ling champion.

Close to Sellout
Sellouts for at least two of the
University of Michigan's home
football games this fall are al-
ready imminent, Athletic Director
Fritz Crisler disclosed yesterday.
Crisler said that only a few
tickets are left for the Ohio State
l game Nov. 22, and the quota of
pasteboards assigned Ohio State
are already sold out at Columbus,
Also virtually a sellout is the
Minnesota game Oct. 25, while the
third highest number of tickets
have been sold for the Michigan
State opener Sept. 27.
Last year Michigan's stadium
capacity of 85,753 was reached
:x twice for the Army and Illinois
games, while away from home the
Wolverines played to capacity
crowds at Ohio State and Minne-

Crisler said that his 1947
coaching staff will remain vir-
tually the same aas it was last
year, with Bennie Oosterbaan
handling the backfield assign-
ment, Jack Blott coaching the
Linemen and Art 'Valpey the
ends. Butch Jordan will again
assist Blott on the line and Er-
nie McCoy, assistant to the Ath-
letic Director, will continue as
chief scout.
Wally Weber, fullback on the
1925-26 Big Nine championship
Wolverine teams, will take over
the freshman team. Last season
Weber, assisted by Keen, handled
the "B" squad. He last coached
the freshmen in 1942.
George Ceithaml, 1941 Wol-
verine quarterback and captain,
will coach the "B" squad. Ceit-
haml joined the Michigan staff
last spring after Navy service.
With the question of eligibility
of several players in summer
school still in question, Crisler
will delay sending out invitations
to early practice until next week.
Practice is scheduled to start
Sept. 3.
