MUCH TALENT REMAINS
Frosh grtidders lose prospect
By CHRIS TERAS
Of what practical use is a guid-
ing philosophy for daily living that
declares "No one is to enjoy a
moment's peace?" Around Michi-
gan's intramural and recreational
sports facilities, it serves to keep
things jumping-as well as bounc-
ing, jouncing, trouncing, bashing,
crashing, splashing, and goring,
but certainly not boring.
Entering its 58th year of exist-
ence, the intramural and recre-
ational sports program separates
into two programs. One is the IM
program itself, run by the staff
located in the IM Building. The
other division is club sports. These
groups are somewhat autonomous,
but club sports members cooperate
closely with the IM staff.
For IM sports, the staff has or-E
ganied competition into ten divi-
sions: Faculty, Residence Halls,
Graduate, Independent, Fraternity
'Social), All campus, Co-recre-
ational, International C e n t e r,
North Campus Married Housing,
and Special Events.
Because a given division offers
only a portion of the complete list
of possible activities, interested
persons should call the IM Sports
Building at 663-4181 for any in-
formation concerning where, be it
IM or club sports, they might fit
into the process of sacrificing a
few peaceful moments.
Most IM activity involves team
competitions, but an attempt is
made by officials to provide forl
informal use. Team sports will
soon be organied, but entries are'
already being accepted for softball,
golf and tennis.
To handle these activities as well

There have been rumblings of discontent this
past week on campus over the signing of Jim
Essian by the Philadelphia Phillies of the Na-
tional League. Essian was a high school star in
football, basketball, and baseball at Detroit St.
Martin's. The 6-2, 210 pounder was described
by head football coach Bo Schembechler as
"the outstanding prospect at running back in
Michigan prep football." Essian had signed a
letter of intent with the Wolverines.
However, the Michigan freshman squad still
boasts many fine players, possibly the most tal-
ented group since Jack Clancy, Rick Sygar,
and Bill Yearby played together a few years
Surprisingly, only four states are represented
on the team. There are eight athletes f r o in
Michigan, 11 from Ohio, six from Illinois, and
one from Indiana.
The Frosh squad appears especially strong at
the quarterback spot with five recruits. They are
John Pighee, a 6-3, 190 pounder from Cleve-
land, Bob Swan, 6-2 and 210 pounds from De-
troit Redford, Jack McBride, 6-4, 185 pounds
from Chicago, Larry Cipa, 6-4, 195 pounds from
Cincinnati, and John Daniels. a 6-4. 192 pound-
er from Newark, Ohio.
Coach Louis Lee admitted that lie signed very
few players that played only defense in their
high school careers. Most of the freshmen who
are to be defensive specialists will be switched
At fullback there are Bob Mogulish f r o in
Youngstown, Ohio, Greg Ellis from Connorsville,
Indiana, and Tom Kee from Wheaton, Illinois.
All three of these players have outstanding
high school credentials and are counted on
heavily by Lee,
Other halfbacks who will be on this year's
freshmen team are Randy Logan of Detroit
Northern, Nick Cashion of Villa Park, Illinois,
Alan Walker of Cincinnati. and Dave "Bo"
Rather of Sandusky, Ohio.
Coach Lee expects one or two men on tenders
in other sports to try out for the team in addi-
tion to the usual 30 or 35, walk-ons. "We've only
got 26 boys now which is hardly a team," states
Lee. "All we ask of a walk-on is that he have
high school experience in football, be in good
physical shape, and have a desire to play."
In discussing the shape of his present team Lee
says that they have recovered from their high
school injuries and are in fine over-all condition.
"A few are overweight but we'll take care of
that," Lee promises.
This year's schedule consists of a home game
with Michigan State on October 25 and an away
encounter with Notre. Dame on November 15.
Coach Lee is looking forward to the games since
they will be a good test of his players. "With only
two months practice under their belts none of the
teams will be very well coordinated but we hope
to beat them with our personnel," he says.
"This is definitely a much better schedule than
we've had the last few years," claims Lee. "Before
we played Bowling Green and Toledo. As far as
Bowling Green goes we might as well have played
an intrasquad game. Toledo gave us a fine game
since that was our first game and their fifth.
However, playing the bigger schools will be much
more beneficial for us."
Coach Lee is a former Michigan footballer him-
self and a three year letterman as a defensive
back. At the age of 24 Lee is just 16 hours short
of his law degree. This term he plans to go to
school part-time and carry six hours.
A high school All-Stater at Abington High
School in Pennsylvania, Lee was a graduate as-
sistant the last two seasons as the freshmen de-
fensive coach before Michigan Head Coach Bo
Schembechler, gave him the reigns to the fresh-
