As last year's football season was
turning into the final weekend drives
grandstand followers, along with
some expert sport writers, began to
make selections for their All-Ameri-
can teams. However, in the course of
their investigating for college men in
various parts of the country, each
and every one of these men came
across the name of Bill De Correvont,

Never before had a prep athlete re-

One could assume very shortly after
his high school football days were
over, that more than one college in;

have "Smiling" Bill play fob their

:Now, as a freshman at Northwes-
tern University, the fans throughout
the country are wondering just what
the future college prospects are for
the Chicago boy. Maury Kent, Coach1
of the Wildcat's freshmen footballers,
says that Bill has got plenty of poise
and runs very easily and strongly.
Only Fair Passer
Although Coach Kent calls him
only a fair passer and kicker he points
out that with his natural change of
pace and his ability to swerve Bill
will be able to play havoc with a
good many college football teams.

It seems that our professors don't
rely solely on ,jumping at conclusions
and giving bluebooks for recreation
after all. In checking up on these
worthy gentlemen, it has come to
light that many of them were "Ath-
letic Greats" of their day, and that a
large proportion are still actively
engaged in some sport or other.
Clark Hopkins, Associate Professor
of Latin and Greek, was a Varsity
swimmer at Yale, when our own Matt
Mann was coach at that school. Pro-
fessor Robert Angell, of the Sociology
department, has won the Faculty
'Squash and 'Tennis titles several
times. Another tennis player, is An-
thony Jobin, of the French depart-
ment, who also plays a bang-up game
of softball.
Niehuss Is Champ
Marvin Niehuss, Associate Professor
of Law, is a past winner of the Facul-.
'ty Squash championship, while Sum-
ner Myers, of the Mathematics de-
partment, played Varsity squash at
Harvard. Even Professor Arthur Boak
of the History department, took off
from his books to win the squash title
a few years back.
From the Geology department, we
have Professor Irving Scott, who pole
vaulted for Oberlin during his col-
lege days, while the Dean of the Lit-
erary school, Edward Kraus, cap-
tained Syracuse's track team back in
the '9O's. Similar honors were held by
Dr. Richard Freyberg, who was track
captain at Michigan.
Bucknell Guard
Charles Fries, Professor of English,
held down a guard post on Bucknell's
eleven, and, it is rumored, that Presi-
dent Alexander Ruthven played Var-
sity football at Morningside College.
Handball players include Dr. John

Golf Jinx Overcome
By Willie Turnesa
Willie Turnesa finally overcame the
jinx which dogged him in the past,
when he captured the National Ama-
teur tournament, downing Pat Ab-
bott in the finals.
In 1936, in the Intercollegiate tour-
ney, Chuck Kocsis, former Univer-
sity of Michigan star, knocked Willie
out of the running, when it seemed
certain that the latter was headed
for the title. The nex't year, Bill Bar-
clay, another Michigan luminary,
conquered Turnesa in the same tour-

COLUMBUS, O. - If the present
flood of ticket orders are any indica-
tion of what is to follow, the attend-
ance at Ohio State's 1938 home foot-

peak, according to Henry D. Taylor,
director of ticket sales. Total home
game attendance in 1937 was 274,432
which was the best record to date.
