The Coo
Jim Wilhite lives in a Peter Pan
He doesn't want to grow up or
be complicated.
His only worry is about getting
too involved in things that'll "hang
him up." But his sensitivity, and
built-in warmth get him too in-
volved in other people's problems.
Available at any hour to deliv-
er the sick or injured to health
service, he gets especially wrap-
ped up in helping the underdog-
Out for a snack\ one night, he
saw a guy on the street resist an
arrest attempt by two cops. When
two onlookers jumped the cops,
Wilhite got so upset that he went
out on the street and took the
'heavies' off the cops' back and
banged t h e i r heads together to
prevent further trouble.'
But he still is like a little kid.
He loves peppermint - in any
form - from ice cream to mouth-
wash - and hates to have to keep
still. "If I were locked in a room

, casua
with nothing to do for 24 hours,
I'd probably die. I have to be on
the move, but I like to do different
stuff. It's a real challenge to find
something different to do all the
time, but I'm willing to try any-
thing once."
Proud of the fact that he's dif-
ferent, he prefers to eat salad
and French fries with his fingers
"'cause using a fork takes too
long. Besides, I hate to eat cause
it takes too much time, but if I
don't eat I'll get too skinny. And
that scares me, so I eat - the
easy way. But it works out all
right because I'm an uncomplicat-
ed eater. I just learned to like
salad dressing a year ago.'
Characterized by friends as
good-natured and full of smiles,
Wilhite is noted for several idio-
synrancies such as hating locked
doors. He became so frustrated
with a locked door one evening
that he knocked it down.
Another set of'eccentricities in-
volve his radio and shoes. H i s

not realizing the impact of some
of his remarks.
When he met a Michigan alum
in his fraternity house, Wilhite
asked if the visitor was an old
Phi Psi. The alum replied that he
$ h4was an SAE, at which point 'Wil-
hite commented casually, "well,
I guess that's the breaks."
Another ' episode involved a
roommate that had left school
- ;for two years to become a Mor-
man missionary. When discussing
the job and the Morman faith
with the friend, Wilhite quite
honestly said he couldn't hack
that type of thing, that "it was
too much like being a traveling
Full of contradictions, Wilhite
can at one moment be hardwork-
ing and proud, and at next glance
S:; be carefree and lazy.
During a test mile run WhichI
was to be followed by an intensive
practice, Wilhite ran the fastest'
in his group with a record of 4:56.
A teammate described h i m as,
"never doing something only half
way. He always puts as much of
himself forth as he can.
"His enthusiasm and effort are

Johnson - who's t h e greatest

even wears those things in the another for school supplies, etc.
Cleanliness is another prime
concern for Wilhite. If he gets up
for an 8 o'clock and feels like a
long shower, chances are he'll nev-
er make that class because he'll
stay in the shower too long, doing
pull-ups on the curtain rod and z
using up the hot water.
Innocently sincere and straight-
forward, Wilhite has a habit of

him as restless, playful and aim-
less to the point of appearing
Wilhite admits, "I don't know
what I want to do with my life
yet- If it weren't for the draft and
football I'd like to linger my edv-
cation over several years.*
A physical education major,
Wilhite figures teaching may well
have some part in his life. "I love
to have people around me all the
time. Teaching or coaching would
be great as it would allow me to
be involved with different types of
people all the time.
"I guess it's because I val-e
friendships more than anything
else. If someone I know doesn't
recognize me or say 'hi' to me or,
the diag, I really feel slighted.
You've gotta be careful when peo-
ple stop smiling."
Wilhite comes from a very
close-knit family. The younger
brother of former Michigan end
Clayt Wilhite, he feels they're "so
much alike, we don't need to com-
municate. But he ought to be shot
for starting everyone calling me
'Jimmy.' I hate it."
A pragmatist, Wilhite proposes
a new guideline for electing the
president. Although he supports
Nixon, he'd like to see each of the
serious candidates given a "trial
and error" term as President.
"That way the public could see
what each would actually do while J
in office. It'd be much more ef-
fective than just talking to people VV
about vague programs for a cou- h
ple of hours on a campaign tour." as

UKNIOR DEFENSIVE TACKLE Jim Wilhite (92) bears down on a California 'ball carrier in the
Xolverines' opening contest of the 1968 season. Wilhite's determination and effort on the gridiron,
owever, are not exactly typical of his personality; his langorous mannerisms characterize him
