Daniels, Great
Wolverine Star,
Thanks Friendship
Norman Daniels, Michigan's great
nine-letter man, has found out that
friendship and love are great things.
Norm signed with Hillsdale as a
coach last fall and when the baseball
team was asked to Japan, he found
that he could not go unless he got

a substitute for his coaching posi-
tion. Omer LaJeunesse, regular Wol-
verine guard last year, offered his
services and Danny was free to go
with the team.
Then Danny got married. And an-
other question of what to do arose.
Finally it was decided that the new
bride would accompany the team at
Danny's expense and enjoy the trip

Michigan's Most Famous Play,
"Old 83," Is Doomed by Rules

The oldest and most successful play
in all football history is at last
stopped, not by an opposing team,
but by the new rules. "Old 83," the
greatest play of them all, goes into
the record books for the last time,
the closing chapter.
The new rule declares the ball
dead if any -part of the player's body
other than his hands and feet touch
the ground while the pigskin is in his
possession. . On "Old 83" the quar-
terback dropped to one knee.
For 30 years this play fooled Mich-
igan's opposition, the spectators, and
many times even the officials. The
late Walter Eckersall spoiled it on
three occasions by losing sight of the'
ball and colliding with the left half-
back. Another referee mussed up.
"Old 83" in the 1930 Michigan-Har-
vard game, when Jack Wheeler stum-
bled over him, with the ball on Har-
vard's 12-yard line. .
Another reason "Old 83" was such
a famous play is that it takes a
squad a long time to learn it, and
even then it does not look like a
winning play in practice sessions. So
other teams have not adopted it.
Michigan knew the play thoroughly
and probably, the opponents would
not venture to use it against the

Wolverines. Anyway, it has never
been widely adopted.
In the play itself, the Michigan
eleven lined up as for an end around
try with the left end taking the ball
from the quarterback, or a line
plunge by the fullback through right
tackle. As the ball was snapped, the
left end raced back and to the right,
passing the signal caller, who faked
a pass to him, at the same time tak-
ing one step to the right, pivoting
behind the right guard, and drop-
ping to his knee. The fullback went
through the line, adding to the im-
pression that the play was at the
right side.
The right halfback went to right
tackle and helped block opposing
linesmen. The right tackle and right
end cut through the line to take out
the opposing right halfback. Left
tackle, left guard, center, and right
guard merely stood their ground to
protect the quarterback. These ma-
neuvers sometimes drew the entire
defending team to the right. Mean-
while the Michigan left halfback
took three steps to the right to help
the impression of an attack on that
side and then raced to the left. The
