Pingel Marked
As Tom Harmon
Spartan Gridder Performs
As Michigan's Star
Jim Pingel, brother of Johnny Pin-
gel, All-American halfback at Mich-
igan State in 1938, has been given
the task of playing the part of Mich-
igan's Tom Harmon on the Spar-
tan's practice "Wolverine" eleven,
and has been causing Coach Charlie'
Bachman's first stringers plenty of
The younger Pingel, at 158, is about
20 pounds under the playing weight
of his famous brother, but the way
he carries the ball through a broken
field reminds observers of the All-
American member of the family. Pin-
gel, who has refused to profit by his
brother's reputation, is a better pass-
er than many of his competitors for
a berth on the varsity.
Other members of the Spartan re-
serve squad have been drafted to en-
act the roles of the remainder of the
Wolverines' dream backfield. Maro
Miller and Jimmy Beardsell have
divided the part of quarterbackFor-
est Evashevski, Paul Derrickson has
been filling Bob Westfall's spot at
fullback, and Fred Quigley has work-
ed as halfback Norm Call.

The Sports Building swimming pool has been trie scene of many of
the Wolverine Varsity's greatest triumphs. In it were held the National
Intercollegiate Championships in 1939, and it was here that Coach Matt
Mann has developed the greatest collegiate squads in the world. The
Wolverines reached theni peak last year when they took the Conference,
National Intercollegiate and National A. A. U. titles.
The pool is open to all men students from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. on
week days.

Inventive genius isn't only con-
fined to engineers and scientists as
far as Michigan's Intramural Sports
Department rs concerned.
Seven years ago Earl Riskey. as-
sistant director of intramural sports,
whipped together a concoction of
handball, tennis and paddle tennis
and pulled out a novel indoor racquet
game, paddleball. which is now en-
joying a popular reign on the Intra-
mural handball courts.
Regular nandba.i rules, a tennis

ball, and a wooden paddle are used.
Since there is no contact between
the player and the ball, paddle ball
eliminates the blistered hands that
often result from iiandball. This
advantage has a particular appeal to
dental and medical students who
are among the game's most faithful
A very strenuous game, it has be-
come more popular with each suc-
ceeding year and is assured of a long
life on the intramural sports pro-

Although no one knows much
about it, Michigan has a gymnastics
squad. Gymnastics isn't an official
sport here at Michigan, and hasn't
been since 1935, when it was dropped
by the University because of the ex-
pense involved. From 1931 until the
year it was abandoned, however, it
was a Conference sport, with regular
Big Ten competitions.
Now, with a self-organized squad,
there isn't even an official coach-
Dr. Townsley, of the Physical Edu-
cation Department, gives them all
the coaching they get in his spare
time. About the only real connection
the group has with the University is
their use of Waterman Gym for prac-
Infrequently, short out-of-town
trips are made by the gymnastics
exhibition team, made up of eight
or ten boys who thus give the people
of Michigan one of their few oppor-
tunities to see a Michigan University
team in action in any city except
Ann Arbor or Lansing or Detroit.
At present, there are only four
schools in the Big Ten that have var-
sity gymnastics on their sports cur-
riculum. These schools are Illinois,
Chicago, Iowa and Minnesota. At
Illinois especially, gymnastics is a
popular sport, and attracts large
crowds to watch Illinois' champion-
ship team perform. At Minnesota
Orientation Week
Swim Finals Soon
Finalists in five events were chosen
last week for the annual Orientation
Week, swimming championships, to
be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3,
at the Sports Building pool. The
preliminaries were held Monday
through Wednesday of last week.
Bob Kirkpatrick took honors dur-
ing the preliminary events by win-
ning his heats in both the 50-yard
free style and 50-yard backstroke
events. His \times, however, were
bettered by David Manning in the
free style and Clark Hall in the back
stroke. Manning also placed second
in the back stroke to Hall, and Hall
qualified for the diving finals as well,
being the only diver to appear on
Other two-time qualifiers were Dick
Sheehy who followed Kirkpatrick
in both the free style and back stroke
sprints; Karl Reed, who won his
100-yard free style heat and followed
Manning in the free style; and Blane
Johnson, who placed second in both
free style events.
The finalists are:
50-yard free style: Kirkpatrick,
Sheehy, Manning, Reed, Speirn, B.
Johnson. Best time: Manning, :26.1.
50-yard breast stroke: Newman.
Dorr, Baker, Newmeyer, Lowe, Burns,
Best time: Newman, :32.4.
50-yard back stroke: Kjrkpatrick,
Sheehy, Hall, Manning, Selshaw, Em-
mons, J. Johnson. Best time: Hall,
Diving: Stroehley, Hall.
100-yard free style: Lahey, Altman,
Reed, Kettinger, Trytten, B Johnson.
Best time: Reed, 1:06.
Detroit Star Enrolls
Leonard Alkon, Detroit Northern
High School star who sped the 100-
yard-dash in 9.8 seconds while com-
peting last year, is enrolled in the
University this semester.

also the sport receives good support.
In the eighteen or so men who work
with him, Dr. Townsley is confident
that he has the nucleus for a strong
team. With the attraction of a larger
number of try-outs which would re-
sult if the sport were once more made
an official one here, a strong team
could undoubtedly be built up in a
few years. It might not happen right
away, but in a short time Dr. Towns-
ley is confident that he could develop
a team that would seriously challenge
Illinois' supremacy.
Nothing like this, of course, will
happen unless the Board decides that
financial cqnditions will once more
allow the University to support a
Big Ten gymnastics squad.uIn this
event, a, hard-working, unknown{
bunch of boys will finally get a lit-
tle of the credit they deserve for a
lot of real work.

California got 'a glimpse of the
pride of Ann Arbor and the Middle-
west when the fatuous number
'98' streaked back and forth on
the Berkeley turf last Saturday.
Torn Harmon, All-American half-
back for the Wolverines, made
runs of 95, 85, and 65 yards
for touchdowns.
Owen out of the loop, will start their
scramble for the title October 9th
when the touch football season opens.
The Hillbilly A. C. will defend their
crown in this sport. The Intramural
Department hopes ; to surpass last
year's record, when a total of 17
teams competed.
The International Center program
will again be conducted for the ben-
efit of the foreign students on cam-
pus. League play will get under way
October 10th with the soccer open-
ing, with volleyball starting Novem-
ber 1st.
