Bradley Names I
Tribe Leader
CLEVELAND, Nov. 12-(P)-Flatly
assured there will be "no front of-
fice interference," once-fired Roger
Peckinpaugh today stepped back into
the managership of the turbulentl
Cleveland Indians.
President Alva Bradleytemphasized
his free hand statement by giving
Peckinpaugh a two-year contract,
which is belivedl to call for $12,000 an-
nually, plus a bonus clause based on
attendance. Oscar Vitt, ousted 1940
manager, was paid $15,000 and the
attendance bonus under his last one-
year pact and probably made at least
"We have heard so much about the
front office running the Cleveland
baseball team that I want to make
this clear," Bradley said. " 'Rog' is on
his own as far as operating the base-
ball club. The only time the front of-
fice will step into the picture is when
he needs assistance and asks for it."
Peckinpaugh commented:
"I know I am going to have full
cooperation of the club. Mr. Bradley
has always been in my corner. Any-
thing that happens on the ball field
will be my fault."
"As far as I am concerned," Peck
said, "last season never happened.
It's none of my business. I don't care
who was involved or who, if anyone,
was at fault. We'll start fresh in 1941."
Peck,,now 49, was one of the best
shortstops of his time. Although
never a great hitter, he was named
the American League's most valuable
player while with Washington.

4 Pstmcin's Iloliday ..
A letter post-marked from the grid war-torn Ohio capital settled in our
box yesterday. It clears up the rumor which we presented to you recently,
so we'll pass it on:
Dear Don :
De"rNo. we're not as bad sportsmen at Ohio State as your column Tuesday
might indicate. This business about Harmon's possible ineligibility for;
going on a sponsored radio program is something for which the students and-
officials of the university are absolutely blameless. As you point out, Maj.
Griffith cleared Harmon of any wrong doing.
In that he concurred with thoughts expressed a week earlier by uni-
versity athletic officials.
The day after Harmon appeared on the program. PRIVATE individuals
approached the athletic department and suggested making a kick, and
received this reply:
half- "It was an obvious accident. Harmon's appearance wasn't scheduled
[inne- in advance. He didn't receive any money. He just happened to be in
out of the studio for the program, and was among those called upon."
g Sat-
hnen- A week later a sports announcer on a Columbus station finally heard
injury about it and decided he had something in the way of an expose, but thei
me. same afternoon Maj. Griffith issued his statement. Now the sports an-
nouncer and the sports editor of the Columbus Citizen are feuding over this
matter, with Sports Editor Lew Byrer backing the thoughts of the university
and Maj. Griffith, against, as I understand it, the attempt of the announcer
to stir up something.
aimi This sports editor was one of the first to put St. John on the pan for
the manner in which he brought his kick about Carl Snavely to public
ne bas- attention.
the all- Here is the way he concluded his column on this matter, and I assure
e, when you it is exactly the way the students feel. After all, we want to see how
e har- much better Scott is than Harmon:
no Sta- "It would be a crime to declare Harmon ineligible for further football
competition on the sort of flimsy excuse his violation of the rule presented.
basket- "Your correspondent is convinced that nine-tenths of the football fol-
onborg, lowers in central Ohio would rather have Ohio State play Michigan with Tom
of the Harmon in the Michigan lineup and lose, than to win from Michigan with
ans for Harmon out of there as a result of a protest which originated in Columbus."
of the Columbus, Don, is not Ohio State. I hope this will clarify things
d in a for the students of Michigan.

Sid Elsner, Ohio State, '41

ac, Illi- It now appears certain that the 1940 Wolverine football squad will

NEW YORK, Nov. 12.-('P)-The
annual battle for the honor of being
named No. 1 team of the year in the
Associated Press Football Ranking'
Poll apparently has settled down to'
four teams, with Minnesota's Golden
Gophers finally wresting first place
away from Cornell.
The Gophers, after closing in on
the front-running Ithacans for four
weeks, displaced them in the season's
fifth poll today, getting 55 first-
place votestto Cornell's45, while one
other ballot divided' the top spot
among these two and third-place
Texas A. and M.
Aggies Named First
The Aggies,. named tlrst by 31 of
the 148 voting experts, and Stan-
ford, placed on the top by 12, are the
only other teams left in the race as
it now shapes up. Minnesota, which
has won its four biggest games by a
total margin of only 14 points, is in
front in the poll with 1,314, followed
by Cornell's 1,260, the Aggies' 1,202,
and Stanford's 1,066.
From these four all-conquering
outfits, each well on the way to vic-
tory in its sectional race, there is a
considerable drop to what, off the
point standing, could be called the
"second division."
Tennessee Ranked Fifth
Heading this four-team group is
Tennessee, the South's only unbeat-
en-untied survivor, 698.5 points, fol-
lowed by Michigan, beaten one point
by Minnesota last Saturday, 585;

question mark and likely to remain
so until it meets Northwestern Nov.

An undisclosed number of Michi-
gan football fans leaned back in their
easy chairs and sighed with relief
today as it was learned that Tom Har-f
mon is suffering from nothing moir
serious than a bruised leg, all rumors
to the contrary notwithstanding.
The Hoosier Hurricane spent Mon-
day night in the University Hospital
and this precipitated a flood of wild
stories to the effect that he had ev-
erything from a broken neck to pneu-
Dr. George Hammond, team phy-
sician, announced yesterday after-
noon that Tom's sojourn in the hos-
pital was merely a routine move and
that there was no cause for alarm.
Head Coach Fritz Crisler pointed out
that the Ace needs a rest more than
anything else and that the main rea-
son for his night in the hospital was
to enable him to get a good night's'
Nothing Serious
"There is nothing wrong with the
leg that ordinary heat treatments and
plenty of rest won't cure," Crisler
said. The Michigan mentor intimated
that rest was something that Harmon
couldn't get at his room.
It seems that there are a consider-
able number of friends, reporters,
photographers, salesmen, get-rich-
quick guys and others too numerous
to mention, whose main occupation
is hanging around the Hammer's
room or calling him on the telephone.
As a result of this situation, the
Michigan All-American had about as
much chance of catching a little shut-
eye as he has of winning the tNobel
Prize for scientific achievement. The
leg needed a rest so the hospital was
the only answer.
Sukup Still Sick
Milo Sukup, the other member of
the Wolverines' hospital corps, is still
on the sick list and it is doubtful
whether he will be able to play in
Northwestern game next Saturday,
Dr. Hammond announced. Sukup is
still feeling the effects of a head in-
jury which he received in the Illinois
Harry Tillotson, ticket manager of
the Michigan athletic department,
announced today that there is a good
possibility of a capacity crowd show-
ing up for the Wildcat contest.
"We've sold 60,000 tickets already
I Take a Number

and they're going at the rate of 2.500
a day," he said yesterday. "With good
weather Saturday, we may sell 20.000
more which would bring the total sale
o1 815,000. enough to fill the stadium!"
The Wolverines ran through a hard
practice session in the Yost Field
House yesterday. The workout was
held indoors because of the cold
weather and high wind. They started
off with a long passing drill, followed
by a session of signal practice. The
boys.then went through a hard dum-
my scrimmage and topped off the
day by going outside for wind sprints.
Wistert Out Cold
Al Wistert, Michigan's 212-pound
sophomore football tackle, says he
doesn't remember being replaced in
last Saturday's game with Minnesota
at Minneapolis. Wistert said a blow
on the head on the second play of the
game was the last thing he remem-
bered until half-time. He was re-
moved from the game after six min-
utes of play.

A new champ rules the roost in the
West Quadrangle Residence Hall
football league today.
Wenley House dethroned last year's
Residence Hall champions, Lloyd
House, by a 13-0 score in a freezing
temperature. An excellent passing
attack with Ed Banta and Ira Wilson
on the receiving end of passes from
the arm of Bud Kroot was the main
weapon Wenley used on its offense.
This was the first time this season
that any team had stopped the of-
fense of Lloyd House. Bob Wise
