THE 'HAVES' REVIEW THOSE WHO WANT THEIR JOBS: With eight "good men" after the assignments, Coach Don "Dobbie" Drake shouldn't have too much trouble at the guard spot on his Ann Arbor High football team this fall. Two of the eight, George Tokunaga (second from right) and Bob Sauve (right) are lettermen with strings on the jobs. Anxious, and maybe ready, to cut those strings are the other six, from left to right, Ted Hariton, Dick Creel, Dick Harvey, Dick Parker, Jack Baylis and John Kokinakes. Drake isn't sure who'll get the Friday night starting calls against Flint Central here.
