SAFE, BUT RUGGED:
I-M Football Slated To Open

A HORT CUT

TO AN EXCELLENT GRADE..

By BOB WAZEKA
As close to regulation football
as possible without becoming un-
necessarily dangerous to anyone
perfectly describes Michigan in-
tramural football.
A field 60 yards by forty yards,
one-hand tag between the should-
ers and the knees, seven men on
a team, no stances for linemen,
and no roll-blocking are some of
the major rule departures from
football that have been made to
insure both safety and expediency
for Michigan's football program.
Yet few would dispute that IM
football is exciting and hard-
fought.
Each year the schedules are
planned to achieve maximum util-
ization of manpower and fields
available as well as to provide a
variety of competition for each
participating team.
Separate Divisions
Defending champions are plac-
ed- in separate divisions and the
'M' Stadium
Ready for
Grid Season
The 101,000 capacity Michigan
Stadium has been touched-up
over the past summer and is ready
for the seven-game home schedule
which opens Sept. 30 against
UCLA.
According to University Building
and Grounds man Robert Hurst,
preparation work this years has
been completely routine.
The tunnel received its first coat
of paint when workmen spread
45 gallons of white on the cement
walls.
The scoreboards at either end
of the field also have a fresh coat
of paint. Minor changes were also
made in seating numbers.

remaining teams are shifted to
new divisions. Each year athletic
managers from all teams meet to
discuss scheduling and to review
the rules and policies affecting the
football season.
This year's meeting will be held
on Wednesday, Sept. 30.
Sept. 25, Opener
Residence hall action will be-
gin Monday, Sept. 25 and all the
other leagues will also begin that
week. Last year in residence hall
competition, Kelsey House of
South Quad rolled to champion-

ships in both the "A" and "B"
divisions.
Pulling an identical feat, Sigma
Alpha Epsilon walked away with
honors in the social fraternity
"A" and "B" divisions. SAE will
attempt to defend its title when
the season opens on Tuesday.
Pro Fraternities Play
Professional fraternities will be-
gin play on Wednesday. Nu Sig-
ma Nu, a medical fraternity, cap-
tured the league title in last year's
competition.
