Touch football gains

70 years ago this week (Nov.
7, 1941): Approximately 40 teams
joined a touch football competi-
tion on campus, illustrating the
popularity of the sport at the Uni-
Almost everyday at 4 p.m., fra-
ternity brothers tossed or kicked
the pigskin in front of their houses.
The sport was popular because
everyone could play since touch
football wasn't as violent as its
tackle counterpart.
"It isn't necessary to be a walk-
ing muscle to play in the game, nor
does one have to coyly tip the scales
at 200 (pounds) ... small and frail or
lean and lanky have just as much
chance to be star material as any-
one else," a Nov. 7, 1941 Michigan
Daily article states.

50 years ago this week (Nov. 10,
1961): An East Quadrangle Residence
Hall student was greeted by two
scaly roommates when he received
a shipment of two boa constrictors.
The boa constrictors came from
British Honduras "just for a visit"
and were flown to Louis R. Jacoby, a
1962 University alum and president
of the Greene House at the time. The
dormitory was expecting the snakes
and made special accommodations
to house the snakes for the night.
At the time, Jacoby would not com-
ment on who sent the snakes. After
the snakes' brief visit, Jacoby said he
planned to sell the pair to a zoo.
20 years ago this week (Nov. 7,
1991): Terri Taliaferro, a second-year
journalism masters student, got the
job of sideline reporter for ESPN

popularity on campus
during the Michigan vs. Purdue
football game.
Taliaferro was chosen from a pool
of about 25 interested University .c
students to work as a broadcastert
for the game. During the broadcast,
she discussed the field conditions
at Michigan Stadium, the different
types of footballs used in the game
and the planes that flew advertise-
ments above the stadium.
"It was the most exciting, exhila-
rating, spontaneous experience
of my life and one that I'd like to
repeat," Taliaferro told the Daily at
the time. "I know ESPN was pleased
because they said they were. I don't
know what it will turn into buthope-
fully something great."

Republican presidential candidate former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney talks with Janet Buss, of Dubuque, Iowa, dur-
ing a campaign stop at Giese Manufacturing in Dubuque, Iowa yesterday.
Romney attempts to garner
support in Iowa campaign

Republican candidate
avoids talking about
opponent Cain
DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Try-
ing to stay above his party's fray,
Republican presidential candi-
date Mitt Romney focused yes-
terday on shoring up support
in this early-voting state and
presenting himself as the GOP's
most electable alternative to
President Barack Obama.
The former Massachusetts
governor stressed his recent fis-
cal proposals and business cre-
dentials at stops in eastern Iowa's
Dubuque and Scott counties,
where he won during his cam-
paign for the Republican nomi-
nation four years ago.
Romney said nothing about
the latest allegations of inappro-
priate sexual behavior against
fellow national GOP poll leader
Herman Cain. Instead, Rom-
ney stuck to the script during a
15-minute speech stressing his
private-sector background and
proposal to trim federal spend-
He tried to remind voters with
his words and campaign sched-
ule that he is running as much
against the Democratic incum-

bent as he is trying to distinguish
himself from his GOP rivals.
"I believe that one of the rea-
sons we've had such a hard time
getting our economy going again
is because of the huge deficits
being racked up by this president,
and by politicians in Washing-
ton," Romney told about 100 GOP
activists at a Dubuque sheet-met-
al products manufacturer.
He said nothing about Cain or
any of his rivals for the nomina-
His only mention of the nomi-
nating campaign came in- an
oblique reference to Iowa's leadoff
nominating caucuses, for which
Romney has campaigned lightly
but quietly hasbegun paying more
attention to in recent weeks.
"You guys were helpful for me
last time around, and I expect
you'llbe helpful for me this time,"
he said. "I'm planning on it."
Romney has sought to more
tightly control the message com-
ing from his campaign than he
did four years ago.
In Dubuque, he tested an
update of his standard campaign
speech, incorporating the new
fiscal policy he proposed last
week. In it, Romney pledges to
cut $500 billion from the fed-
eral deficit in his first four years
in office. "I will slay the deficit

beast," he said.
He shook handswith members
of the audience but answered no
questions from them or the corps
of local and national reporters
tailing him.
Monday's visit was Romney's
fourth to Iowa this year and it
came 18 days after his last trip,
a stark shift from his aggressive,
$10 million campaign for the
2008 caucuses that ended in a
disappointing second-place fin-
Aides have sought to mini-
mize expectations this time
around while quietly staying in
close touch with Romney's 2008
campaign supporters in hopes of
a surprise Iowa finish heading
into the New Hampshire prima-
ry, where expectations for him
remained high.
Romney recently said he
would like to win Iowa. He has
promised a more aggressive
travel schedule in the final seven
weeks and plans more than one
telephone event where he talks
to thousands of Iowans and
Romney has polled at or near
the top of surveys of likely GOP
caucusgoers since entering the
race in June, while GOP rivals
Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry
and Cain have ignited curios-
