Wolverines Depend On Kodros
To Lead Them ToBig Ten Title

Coldest Game In1932
The Michigan-Minnesota game in
1932 was one of the coldest Wolverine
gridders have ever played. The ther-
mometer read nine degrees above
zero at the beginning of the contest
and had dropped to six below at the

A clear-cut snappy voice and a
sharp clap of hands was heard at
the far corner of, the practice field
last week and a casual glance in that
direction was immediately trans-
formed into an intent stare at what
was transpiring. The voice and hand
clap, it soon became apparent, be-
longed to a determined young man
upon whose shoulders rests the re-
sponsibility of keeping Michigan's
football machine at a fighting pitch,
from the first right down to the final
tussle of the season-Capt. Archie.
Kodros of Alton, Ill.
The scorching sun was pouring
forth 95 degrees of intense heat for
the third day in a row, but it had
failed to reckon with the indomin.at-
able spirit of the Wolverine leader.
The first squad was running through
a long signal drill and, it was Kodros,
whose voice you'll hear plenty at
the Stadium during-. the next two
months, who was literally carrying
the team ahead. He was always at
his pivot position a junp ahead of
the rest of the boys, and his rigging
"Let's go, gang!" was proving a real
tonic to his teammates.
Earns Regular Berth
Kodros has come into his own the
hard way at Michigan, for the barrel-
chested, bouldershouldered senior
was a guard in his freshman days
and when moved over to center the
next year, he found the team's cap-'
tain doing very nicely there. But he

was determined to get a starting
assignment and by some dogged, play,
featured by expert passing and vici-
ous tackling, he soon took over the
pivot position and has been a 60-
minute man ever since.
In the spring .of 1938, Kodros be-
came the first letterman to win the
Chicago Alumni Trophy for excel-
lence of play, spirit and sportsman-
ship during spring practice.
Great Line-Backer
Archie is no 10-second man, but
he's a keen diagnostician of plays
and has developed the uncanny
knack of always being on the right
spot on defense. That's why Coach
Crisler terms him one of the best
line-backers he has ever seen.
Off the field, this 5 foot 8 inch, 190-
pound rock of granite is one of the
most likeable chaps you can ever
hope to find. His favorite pastime
is movie-going and he averages eight
trips within~ the space of a month.
He isn't at all particular as to the
type of picture, as long as he is en-
The experts have not overlooked
Kodros when listing their choices of
All-American timber for 1939. There
are few pivotmen in the country who
can excel him in any phase of the
game. But the Wolverines' leader is
not so much concerned with national
ranking as he is with the welfare of
his team. His prime aim is to help
Michigan cop the Big Ten crown
which was so narrowly missed in 1938.

SEASONED SPORTSMEN always view with pride
the little knots (technically known as pills) that
continued wear develops on the surface of Shet-

land homespuns.



This same characteristic, to a lesser degree, is found
in Van Boven Shetland fabrics because they are
finished by nature in the original crofter manner
and like their Scottish namesakes - the longer


they are worn the better they look.

Contrast herringbone and twill weaves; in a wide
variety of Fall colors and shades, in a three-button
lounge model are now available in both suits,

sportcoats, and topcoats.
