Ohio State University football team

Andrako, a center, started the sea-
son as a substitute to Charley Maag,'

In Retrospect .. .
THIS is the column you save un-
til the end of the season.
It's the piece that requires per-
spective, a thoughtful glance over the
the records, the final tally, and the
sobriety that comes only after the
din of the band and of the cheers
has subsided. For the last four years
these recap columns have been subtle
squires with sly pokes at guilty ribs
and cloaked innuendoes as to the
course of events. Thus, in this un-
usual year of 1938, your chronicler
approaches the task with a regret-
table but unavoidable naivete.
Today this column extends the glad
hand, it congratulates, it praises, it
pats the collective backs-all in utter
sincerity. No stereotyped rah-rah or
call to duty motivates the piece. It's
simply my reaction to a job well done
and to those who did it.
gratulations on a superb job of
coaching. Out of an unsavory foot-
ball muddle, you developed the finest
Michigan 'team in four years, re-
stored a Michigan spirit that had hit
rock bottom, brought back into the
fold a house divided, and established
a firm foundation for the future. You
did so in an efficient, workmanlike,
and deliberate manner-no words or
time wasted. The revised attack, the
switches in personnel, the simplified
offense, and impregnable defense can
all be attributed to the hands that
guided the reins. To you, Marty,
Munn, Dickson, et al-damn fine.
To Capt. Fred Janke: Fred, the
thing I'll remember most is your in-
domitable spirit. Your willing pat
on the back to the rest of the gang,
the old "huba-huba-go-get-'em"
every night in practice, the old plug
at tackle every Saturday with stand-
out performances and little recogni-
tion. I watched you trying to shield
your ankle injury against Northwes-
tern and wondered how you could
fake such agility. Against Ohio I
understand you changed your entire
style because of that weak ankle. I-
stead of busting in you would zig-
zag to get the blockers out of posi-
tion. Your play throughout the year

was outstanding, and despite the fact
that the headlines won't record it,
you must have a deep sense of satis-
faction today when you peruse the
results and realize your contribution.
To Ralph Heikkinen: Ever since
Butch Slaughter's All-American days
of 1924, Michigan has lacked a na-
tionally outstanding guard. But
1938, the comeback year, brings forth
Ralph Heikkinen-180 pounds of
sterling ability with a year of tre-
mendous play to his credit. It was
Heik who led the blockers, Heik who
piled up the interference, Heik who
ranted and raved when the opposi-
tion invaded Wolverine territory. A
corking blocker, a great competitor,
an inspirational force, Heikkinen is
Michigan's 1938 All-American, our
first since 1933.

Diffliculies Ironed Out-
Fvutig Stays In School
Michigan's future football hopes
were greatly enhanced when Ed Fru-
tig, brilliant sophomore end, whose
pass-snatching has been one of the
features of Michigan's great come-
back, yesterday announced that he
was remaining in school for the bal-
ance of the year.
It was earlier reported that Frutig
had been forced to withdraw from
the University because of financial
reasons, but the big wingman from
River Rouge stated that the dif-
ficulties had been ironed out and
that he is looking forward to a big
season in 1939.
Swimmers Will Sponsor

Kromer: Earl Gilman, our rotund
senior editor, sweated out the label
Touchdown Twins one Saturday
night, and I imagine it will enjoy
some permanency. For a couple of
guys who started with the pressure
turned on full blast, you came
through in noble style. Your future
should be star-studded-all the way.
To Forest Evashevskii You made
Joe Unsung a headliner. Moving
out with a lightning speed, you
blocked and smashed the opposition
into the ground. Your defensive play
was superb. And it paid dividends.
To the Others: I'd like to run
through the list and tell the whole
story. Jack Brennan's fine year at
guard, Don Siegel's terrific play at
tackle, Arch Kodros' ball snapping,
excellence, Wally Hook's courageous
comeback, Johnny Nicholson, Dan
Smick, Vince Valek, on and on
through the maze of names, events,
hearthrobs and thrills. To all of
you, this column doffs its tattered
chapeau. It was great.
