football, baseball and track
at DIT.
Mr. Eliowitz, who died in
1981, was a triple threat at
State, where he quarterback-
ed the offense, returned
punts and ran the ball as a
fullback. "Big Abe," as he
was called by sportswriters,
also played baseball for the
Spartans.
After Michigan State, Mr.
Eliowitz played football in
Canada with the Ottawa
Roughriders and later the
Montreal Alouettes. In 1935,
he led the league with 62
points, and in 1969 was en-
shrined in the Canadian
Football Hall of Fame. He
coached Denby High in
Detroit to a city champion-
ship in 1946. He also coach-
ed Cooley and Redford high
schools to city champion-
ships in football, baseball
and cross-country.
Mr. Magidsohn made his
mark on football both runn-

ing the ball and blowing the
whistle. At Michigan, he
was an All-Western player
in 1909 and 1910 under
coach Fielding H. Yost. He
was also named to All-
American teams by several
newspapers of the day. As
the first Jew to win an "M"
for the Wolverines, he was
often the subject of atten-
tion. In 1909, when he was
excused from practice for
two days to attend Rosh
Hashanah services in
Detroit, his teammates
demanded an explanation.
After Mr. Magidsohn gave
his reason, his teammates
said "Next year, I'm going to
be a Jew."
Mr. Magidsohn distin-
guished himself as a Western
Conference referee from
1912-46. He handled all
the major games of the day,
including Army-Navy, the
Rose Bowl, Army-Notre
Dame and the College All-
Star game.
Mr. Goldman, a native of
South Carolina, played and
later coached for the silver-
