The Class Of '38.. .
THE CURTAIN falls on another year in Michigan athletics. It's been a
great year even though the won and loss column in some of the branches
are a bit blemished. There's been the usual thrills and chills, the laughs
and heartaches, the cheers and boos, the rumors, the changes, and now the
Today is the day when we ought to embark on that gigantic postmortem
affair of reviewing the past season and turning briefly to the future for
some red hot prognostications. We're passing that up today, and there'.

bies in your ear-and about as accurate. We're dedicating our last column
of the current seasonnot to the different sports, but to the fellows who
participated in them for the last time--the athletic class of 1938.
The losses this year are comparatively light. The football squad
will lose eight 1937 lettermen, basketball four, wrestling three, hockey
six, ,wijnming four, track six,. baseball six, golf, two, and tennis two.
Space does not permit us to tell you all about them or even to list
them in toto. Yet, random thoughts bring back striking memories of
some of' their feats-a small part of their contribution.
Will you ever forget Jake Townsend's shot making, his lumbering gait.
as he steamed down the .floor, his passing? Do you remember the North-
western battle in 1936 when Joe Rinaldi played the bang-up center game, his
face covered with blood? Remember the late Steve Mason's brilliant run
in the 220-yard low hurdles the time he won a Conference title here in 1937
with the rain beating down and the track a quagmire? Remember Burt
Smith and his infectious rebound smile with Johnny Mariucci sitting igno-
minously on the ice. Remember Earl Thomas winning a Conference wrest-
ling title in 1937 with an injured arm clasped behind his back? We could
go on and on--Ed Kirar virtually out of .the water as he churned his 50 yard:
in record breaking time. Or Stark Ritchie twisting for two touchdowns in
that near-nightmare against Chicago. Or Butch Kremer. smacking prodi-
gious home run clouts. Or Herm Fishman dribbling with abandon. The
memories are. as clear as they are numerous. For fear of sentimentality,
we'll cut it short.
Good luck -fellows-all of you!

go at that... End Coach Campbell Dickson is enjoying California weather

Well, that's about all for this season. Next time out it will be plunging

a rampant Wolverine that will provide the copy. Have a 'good summer, boys
