gainers Keep

Team Healthy

The Saturday afternoon gridiron
clashes are not the only battles
Michigan faces this fall, for they
lead to another battle, the battle
against injuries which mustbe
won if the big "M" is to field a
team each week against its foes.
In the flight against injuries,
which the Wolverines have been
plagued heavily with this season,
many mechanical and electronic
devices are employed to help na-
ture along in her task of healing.
Trainer Jim Hunt, a fieldhouse
fixture for many seasons, and his
assistants, Len Paddock and Lind-
sy McLean, daily mix anatomical
knowledge with science to keep the
boys in shape before and after a
tough practice or a hard-fought
Bruises Numerous
Bruises-. and sprains are nu-
merous on any squad. To heal
them in a hurry the staff employs
ultra-sound, an'intricate electronic
machine which uses high fre-
quency sound to cellularly massage
the injured and tender tissue. A
machine of this type was used to
lessen the pain in President Ken-
nedy's back last summer and works
at a frequency of 1,000,000 vibra-
tion per second. The highest fre-
quency that can be heard by man
is only 20,000 v.p.s.
Keeping the muscles of an in-
jured athlete ih tone is ordinarily
a problem, but with a mechanical
muscle stimulator, like the one
used in trainer Hunt's Yost field-
house headquarters, a prostrate
athlete can get the benefits of reg-
ular exercising to stay in shape
while he mends. The machine en-
ables an athlete to move his limbs
more easily and keeps the blood
circulating normally despite the
soreness or swelling.
Stiffness Eliminated
A familiar device in any mod-
ern training room is a whirlpool,
which circulates a constant supply
of water around a sprained or bat-
tered limb increasing its circula-
tion and allowing it to be moved
more easily. This eliminates the
long period of stiffness which'
would normally follow an injury.
When a player suffers a bad
bruise which is too deep to be
treated with the whirlpool or ul-
tra-sound devices, another elec-
tronic marvel, the diathermy ma-

chine, is employed. It has a small
circular head which, when placed
on the bruise, gives deep heat to
an area with its penetrating rays.
It is electric and the rays from
it can reach even to the bone to
give relieving heat to areas which
could not be formerly treated. This
cuts down the time spent on the
bench by Wolverine gridders and
gets them back with the team in a
For small bruises trainer Hunt
and his men employ a special
moist heat-pack which is capable
of warming the sore area for 20
It is sometimes said that a foot-
ball player is more tape than
flesh and the phrase will not be
disputed around Michigan Sta-

dium, for miles of tape are used;
up during a season to protect+
bruised areas from further harm.
At least 10 knees, 20 pairs of
ankles and five shoulders are
heavily taped before a practice
and even more before a game.
For many players a good train-
ing room is as important as a good
coaching -staff,,for while coaching
shows them what to do, the train-
ers keep the sweat-shirted war-
riors primed and ready for their
next encounter.
Practice Notes
Both first and second team right
guards, Joe O'Donnell and Lou
Pavloff have been ruled out of Sat-
urday's contest with Army. O'Don-
nell is wearing a cast on his left
arm to protect a hairline fractiure

suffered in last week's 29-6 con-
quest of. UCLA, while Pavloff is
nursing an injured knee, which
could sideline him for the season.
"He's definitely out of the Army
game," said Coach Bump Elliott,
"but whether or not he'll have to
undergo survery depends on how
the knee responds to conventional
The rest of the Wolverines have
been pronounced fit to go.
* * *
To protect against further knee
or ankle injuries, Michigan's grid-
ders will take to the field Satur-
day equipped with new shallow
cleats. About a quarter of an inch
shorter than the usual cleats, these
are constructed of nylon with a
stainless steel tip.

A New Start
"Ready! Bow! Up!" barked the voice over Wolverine Club's new
loudspeaker, and a big "M" formed in the north end zone of Michigan
This was the revival of Block "M," an organization seemingly
doomed to dissolution last year when the Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics moved it to the end zone from the 25-yard line.
But an ambitious cove of Wolverine Club members worked ceaselessly
to keep the big "M" a part of Saturday's tradition.
And for the first time in eleven years, the Michigan students
could see the "M" from their vantage points along the Press Box
(west) side of the field. So could most of the other 80 some-odd
thousand people, with many impressed comments being heard
after the game.
Thus, by the appearance of the "M" and two other stunts in
perfect coordination, many past questions and criticisms of the Block
have already been answered.
First was the query as to how Wolverine Club was going to fill up
the Block since losing its precious seats on the 25-yard line. These
seats annually lured 1300 members, including many uninterested
Block Members Answer*
Approximately 1,040 students, mostly freshmen, answered this on
Saturday with their enthusiastic interest and coordiziated effort. In
fact, the compactness of the group prompted Co-Chairman Dan Stone
to say, "I really wanted a smaller Block. It's easier to work with and


Five of the nation's top ten teams will draw most of the
attention in this week's Grid Picks contest.
Iowa (No. 1), Georgia Tech (No. 3), Syracuse (No. 7) and
Michigan (No. 9) all take on opponents which also received votes
in this week's AP ratings-Southern California, Louisiana State,
Maryland and Army, respectively.
Ohio State (No. 8), hosts UCLA, which dropped from No. 9
into the also-rans after the drubbing it received Saturday from

Augments 2-0 Seri~es Victory

(Continued from Page 1)
Red Ruffing and Allie Reynolds,
a couple of Yanks of former days,
each had won. seven Series games
but Ford's brilliant effort made
him the top winner of all time
in his 15th start.
The chunky Yankee pitcher
never gave the Reds the ball they
wanted. He pitched tight to the
plate-crowding Robinson and then
made him go after the high out-
side pitch, striking him out twice.
Only Two Better
Only Babe Ruth with 29%
scorless innings and Christy Math-
ewson with 281/3 (he pitched three
shutouts in 1905) have blanked
the opposition for as many con-
secutive innings. Ford undoubtedly
will get a chance to top them
in the fourth game at Cincinnati
The Yanks had O'Toole on the
ropes in the first when they loaded
the bases on Bobby Richardson's
first of three singles and walks
to Tony Kubek and Skowron. Yogi
Berra popped up for the third out.

near Michigan Theatre

Howard, a .348 hitter for the
season, hit a 1-1 pitch into the
lower seats in right leading off
the fourth. He said it was a slider.
Whatever. it was it curled away
from Wally Post who was playing
him toward right center. The ball
just did make the seats.. "
Skowron's blast was a homer all
the way. It came off an O'Toole
curve ball and drilled its way into
the eighth row of the lower stands
in left. It was his seventh in world
series play. Howard's was his fifth.
Tough Game
It was a tough game for O'Toole,
who had finished the regular, sea-
son with eight straight victories,
while compiling a 19-9 record.
However, the 24-year-old son of
a Chicago policeman kept getting
behind the Yankee hitters. Ameri-
can League pitchers learned long
ago that you are inviting disaster
when you pitch like that.
With Mantle on ' the sidelines,
Houk used Hector Lopez in right
field and moved Maris to center.
Richardson started off like he
wound up last fall with three
singles or half the Yanks' total.
The little second baseman led the
club last year with 11 hits and
set . a new record with 12 runs
batted in.
The victory was the Yanks' 66th
to only 16 defeats in their home
park this year. Home and away
they have beaten southpaws 36
times and lost to them 13.

Ford's 2-hitter was the 12th in
series play, the last having been
turned in by Warren Spahn of
Milwaukee against the Yanks in

Get with it, man! You belong

better stunts can be displayed. And we know everyone joined because
they want to belong."
Secondly, in past years, Block members'have not always conducted
themselves as Michigan students should, by throwing cards and capes
in the air when touchdowns were scored.
This problem was alleviated, by many innovations that were
intended to instill in the members a feeling of pride for the Block.
The new, light-weight equipment and capes, and the public address
system were the major additions, along with new instruction cards.
Finally, pictures are taken of the stunts so that members can see
themselves in action.
On the front page of last Sunday's Daily the "M" could be .seen
rising from the picture of 13,000 high school band members participat-
ing in the annual Band Day.
Seven Stunts this, Wee ..
This event limited the lock's activities to only three stunts as it
didn't want to detract from the band spectacle. In fact, the stunts
added to the pageant, and Stone said that there will be seven such
displays this Saturday.
/The "Ready! Bow! Up!" group has made a new, and a good
start. It is a group that Michigan students can be proud of, the
same as the football team and marching band.
One game never proved a football team, but it is an indication
of what the team can do. So was Saturday's performance an indication
of what Block "M" can do, and with its expected improvement, spec-
tators can look forward to many colorful displays from the north end
of Michigan Stadium in the Saturdays to come.
