While the First Annual Pro Football
Handicappers Championship continues
in Las Vegas for a first prize of $42,000,
to the person with the best record at
season's end, a far more important
football selection event is going on right
here in Ann Arbor.

Picks. And the first prize is even better

to get in charge of the Gridde Picks in
Ann Arbor. It's obviously more in-'
teresting and more important than
what's going on here in Las Vegas."
