Today we're a wandering reporter,
walking around trying to get opinions
about Michigan's football fortunes-
to-come. Finding nobody to argue
with at the Union poolroom, we
wander over to the League and find
Lib Hegge, '41, who decides we're
not worth a smile, and says, "Our
boys are wonderful. We'll win the
Big Ten championship, especially
since we don't play Northwestern."
A walk to Angell Hall gives us
Asst. Professor Myers of the mathe-
matics department who answers us
with "We'll have a good team. Might
even win the Big Ten title. Indeed,
we probably will."
Maybe that girl on the steps would
tell us, and besides she might have a
phone, and phones are handy things
these days, so we ups to her, and
opens our mouth, and she screams,
"Go 'way from the! I don't want
any more magazines or papers or-
Go 'way!"
It's awfully hot out today, isn't it?
So we walk the other way to get
roasted evenly, and we come across
Julius Walker, '40, transfer from the
U. of Miami, Fla. Says Mr. Walk-
er: "If the line holds out, we'll have
a good team. There'll be no stopping
the team except through injuries."
Dye Hogan, '40, stopsheating long
enough to sound oiff with "The team
seems to be shaping up well. The in-
dications point to a very successful
season, possibly the Conference
Soon we see a distinguished-look-
ing egg over by the economics build-
ing. Must be a prof. "Pardon us,
but--" "Shh." He takes us by the
arm and leads us into the shadow of
the building where he slips on a wine
bottle. "See," he whispers, "Fascists
everywhere trying to upset things."
"We just wanted to ask you what
kind of a team you think we're going
to have this year."
"Watch out! Not so loud! State has
spies here. Lots of spies around.
But, put your ear-closer to my lips.

My agents tell me we'll have a swell
"Say, who ARE you, anyhow?"
"John L. Spivak."
It is still hot outside, and we head
for a local milk company to quench
our thirst with root beer. En route
we meet Bud Londy, '41, who, in
response to our query, says, "Wait till
I finish my root beer." Which he
does, and then says, "I don't know."
We head back for campus and
stroll by Newberry Hall. Curiosity,
and a desire to escape the heat lead
us to enter the museum, and we stand
around looking at an Egyptian mum-
my thinking how really dead it looks,
when it starts to speak, saying,
"What can I do for you, young man?"
We gather our scattered vocal
chords, and let loose a timid "What
kind of a football team do you think
we'll have this year?"
"Well, son, barring injuries, we
should have it relatively easy the
first five games, but Minnesota and
Ohio State-well, it's too bad Heston
isn't around this year."
We trip outside and go by Betsy
Barbour, and Bonnie Lowden and
Mary Spaeth, '42, chorus, "We think
it's going to be a wonderful team.
We're going to be Big Ten champs!"

State St. - Under the Quarry

Dave Nelson, sophomore half-
back from Detroits Northwestern
High, is expected to add strength
to an already powerful backfield.
He is small but shifty and a hard
runner, and will be a handy man
to have around.

with the Senators and was sent to Or-
lando in the Florida S'tate League for
seasoning. There Mr. Griffith's staff
of experts decided to take advantage
of his speed and again he found him-
self in the outfield. After a slow
start, idue in large part to playing
night ball, which was new to him,
Elmer got hot in the last three weeks
of the season and his hitting average
shot up near the .300 mark.
Finishes With Senators
This rapid improvement so im-
pressed Mr. Griffith that, when Or-
lando concluded its schedule, he
brought the ex-Wolverine north to
finish the American League season
with the Washington club. The trir
from Florida didn't cool him - off,
because in his first full game with
the Senators Elmer got three for four
and added a beautiful catch on his
only chance in centerfield.
