Harmon First On Pro List;

ashington Drafts Evashevski

don wirtchafter's
Draft Doings .
POOR Tommy Harmon . . . Of all
the tough breaks, he gets drafted
by the Chicago Bears .How can a
guy be expected to run for touch-
downs behind a line like they have?
. Why it's like drawing a 9000
order number in the military train-
ing draft. On the other side of the
fence was lucky Forest Evashevski
. . The Washington Redskins picked
him ...What a team those Redskins
have .Wasn't it about two weeks
ago that they walloped the Bears,
Old George Halas, the unfortu-
nate one, was howling "We wuz
robbed last night." Yep, by all
rights, he should have gotten Jaw-
in' John Kimbrough : ... He just
missed by the flip of a coin - - -
What a rookie backfield that would
have made . . . Harmon, Kim-
brough, O'Rourke and Scott.
Over in New York, the Wolverine
Ace still kept turning thumbs down
on the pro grid offers . . . Not in-
terested, he says. It's strictly radio
. . . At the Heisman banquet night
before last, it was Papa Harmon who
urged his famed sonny to try two
years in he pro leagues . . .Maybe
pop can change Tommy's mind
Eddie Frutig, drafted by the
Green Bay Packers, will probably
play if the price is good enough.. ..
He would have preferred to sign
with neighboring Detroit . . . A
low national draft number, how-
ever,.might drag him into the army
before next grid season rolls
" around.
TALKING about the draft, Elmer
Gedeon, former Wolverine foot-
ball, baseball and tracK star, who was
supposed to report to the Washing-
ton Senators baseball camp again
this spring, will have to cancel the
engagement in order to take advan-
tage of Uncle Sam's free trainin
The Michigan cagers begin thei
extended pre-vacation journey Sat-
urday night when they travel to the
Yost Field House to meet Ypsi . .
Bennie Oosterlaan told his lads be-
fore the recent Spartan fray that he
wasn't worrying about how the
came out against State . . . "But re-
member, fellows," he went on, "take
this game seriously for we have t
get ready for Ypsi next week."
JACK Mk1YER will try another
football comeback this spring
... This time, however, he will pass
up the quarterback post and go
out for one of the guard positions
..]Easier on his injured knee ...
The AAU "crack down" policy
cracked up against Hank Luisetti
yesterday . . . The simon-pures
decided to take the former Stan-
ford cage ace back into, their ranks
... After all, he only took part in
a basketbal picture . . .He only
made a few grand . . . But as for
Jim Rae and his associates who
played in a recent pro-Ali-Star
game, why they are nothing but
out-and-out professionals, the
AAU rules... Why they were given
coffee and doughnut money for
their services.
Jim Galles, the varsity wrestler,
was walking around the lockerroom
with a big patch of adhesive on his

back . . . Herb Brogan stopped over
to see what was wrong . . "Nothing
much, Herr . . . Nothing to worry
about . . . Just got some callouses
from being pinned so often."

Lowrey Drills
Hockey Squad
For Colorado
Coach Eddie Lowrey, a disappoint-
ed but even morerdetermined man
sent his Wolverine hockey team
through a hard practice session last
night in preparation for two games
this' week-end with Colorado College
at Colorado Springs.
Bob Kemp, sophomore wingman
who missed last Saturday's game due
to a boil on his right leg, was back
in uniform for last night's drill and
turned in some excellent hockey, as
did Capt. Charley Ross and Jimmy
With Kemp back in shape, the
quad is at full strength and Lowrey
s fervently hoping that this happy
ircumstance will prevail until the
;eam leaves for Colrado. The Mich-
gan mentor intends to name his
raveling squad of ten players after
topight's drill.
Wolves Look Good In Loss
Although the Wolverines dropped
heir second contest in two attempts
Saturday to the Western Ontario
lub, they showed flashes of bril-
Especially encouraging was the
bowing of diminutive Hank Loud,
he Wolverine goalie. Hank made
bout sixty saves during the game
hich should qualify him for mem-
ership in the "I learned The Mean-
ig Of Hell" Club. Even Spike James,
n some of his better nights last
ear, never topped Hank's perfor-
lance Saturday. When one considers

Iank's performance speaks for itself.

the football services of Tommy Har-'
non, Michigan's All-American half-
)ack, if Tommy changes his mind
and decides to play football for
money next year.
Harmon's name was the first drawn
in the annual draft of the National
Professional Football League. Actu-
ally he was selected by the Philadel-
phia Eagles, under a rule which per-
mits the league's last place team to
make the first draw, but through a
previous agreement the Eagles yield-
ed first choice to the Bears.
When Tommy, in New York, was
informed he was the No. 1 choice he
said again that he was not interested
in pro football. He previously has
expressed a preference for radio
work. Today's draw, he said, did not
influence his decision not to play.
Request Denied
After he had learned of the draw-
ing, Harmon telegraphed Carl
Storck, president of the league, ask-
ing that his name be removed from
the list. This was not done, how-
The names of Harmon and 400-odd
ether college seniors whose services
are sought by the 10 professional
teams were placed side by side on a
,,-oup of blackboards. From this list
the team owners, crowded with their
-oaches in a smoke-filled hotel room,
made their selections.
The Chicago Cardinals, given sec-
cnd choice, drew Jarrin' John Kim-
rough, of Texas A.&M., another
highly prized All-American. Other
cit choices:
Pittsburgh Steelers: Norman Stand-
1ee, Stanford fullback, who also was
transferred to the Bears under a pre-
Cason trade agreement.

Cleveland Rams: Rudy Mucha, Un-
ioersity of Washington center.
Detoit Lions: Jim Thomason, Tex-

New York Giants: George Franck,

Green Bay Packers: George Pask-
an, Wisconsin fullback.
Brooklyn Dodgers: Dean McAdams,
University of Washington back.
Chicago Bears: (Picking in their
own right): Don Scott, Ohio State
Washington Redskins: Forest Ev-

leared the way for many of Har-
non's touchdown sprints.
Others choices include Ed Frutig,

Bay Packers, and Ralph Fritz, Wol-
verine guard, who was picked by the
Pittsburgh Steelers.

By Gene Gribbroek
One-hundred and fifty teams, the
largest number ever to compete, will
begin title chases in nine divisions
immediately after the holidays as the
Irtramural Department opens the
1941 basket ball season.
A jump of 25 teams in the entry,
list has brought with it the formation
of new leagues to accompodate thej
large field. The independents will
play in three sections this year, a
12-16 team regular loop, a 16-team
rooming house league, and an eight-
t;am cooperative league. The new
Business Ad and Faculty loops will
be four-team affairs.
Theta Xi in class A and Phi Kap-
pa Psi in class B will be the de-
fending all-fraternity champions,
with Delta Theta Phi returning
as professional fraternity title,
holders. The Phys Eds took the in-
dependent crown last year. Win-
chell House, winner-in both the A
and B Residence Hall loops last
season, will find the three new
East Quad houses added to the
field competing in the dorm divis-
ion this year.
A faculty volleyball league is being
formed, and a call has gone out for
players. An organization meeting at
the Sports Building, followed by a
lunch at the Union, will be held
Thur'sday night. All interested facul-
ty members are invited.
Fifty-six assorted matmen are al,
ready entered for the battle for the
fr aternity crowns Monday and Tues-
da nights at the Field House. This is
also an increase over last year's en-
try list.
Four titleholders, three of them
from the championship Phi Delta
Theta squad, will be in the field.
Gridder Al Wistert, who copped the
unlimited class title for the Phi
Delts last year, and John Stewart,
Phi Delt 126-pound champ, are
the defending titleholders. Don
Young, also of the Phi Delts, and
runner-up in the 175-pound di-

Jordan, and also former conference
champ Harland Danner.
From the East come the two out-
standing teams, Navy and Penn State.
The Wolverines turned back both
of these teams last year only with
a struggle. The three toughest Big'
Ten teams are also opponents: Illi-
nois which surprised the grapplers
when it beat them last year; Indiana
swamped them, 23-3; and Ohio State
tied them. From the Ohio Confer-
ence comes Ohio University with a
very powerful squad.
The other opponents are North-
western, Michigan State and the
Dearborn A.C.
Keen, shooting for a championship,
says that " a chaipionship team
must train on raw meat and not milk
toast." And that is real raw meat.

Reds Sell Arnovich
In Deal With Giants
CHICAGO, Dec. 10-(AP)-The Ma-
jor Leagues agreed today to the re-
election of Commissioner Kenesaw
Mountain Landis, which will take
place in an unanimous action at
tomorrow's joint session of the Na-
tional and American Leagues.
In addition to matters which the
two circuits considered jointly, the
American League designated July 8
at Detroit for the 1941 All-Star Game
and voted to retain its rule against
trading by its championship club.
The only deal of the day was
transacted, just at dinner time by
the Cincinnati Reds and New York
Giants. It sent outfielder Morrie Arn-
ovich to the Giants for cash-esti-
mated at $12,5r 1--and exchanged
Pitcher Milt Shoffner of the Reds
for Shortstop Wayne Ambler of the
Jersey City Giants of the Interna-
tional League and cash. Shoffner will
be placed on the Jersey City roster.

Gus Sharemet
Lost For Penn
Meet Saturday
Stock in Pennsylvania's swimming
team went soaring late yesterday af-
ternoon when it was revealed that
Gus Sharemet, Michigan's All-Amer-
ican freestyler, will enter University
Hospital today for a minor operation
on an infected toe.
Thiswill definitely keep the lanky
Wolverine out of Saturday's dual
meet in Buffalo with the young
Quaker team, and might prevent him
from making the trip to Florida
Dec. 20 with his own teammates.
"It's nothing serious," Gus said
after his workout yesterday, "but I'll
have to stay in the hospital for a
few days, and if it doesn't heal quick-
ly I might miss the trip south with
the fellows."
Despite the loss of the 100-yard
sprint star, Matt Mann is not losing
any sleep over his first meet of
the year. Penn has only four letter-
men on its squad-the rest of the
team is made up of sophomores who
have had little experience.
But Michigan's coach is not going
to pull any punches for the Quaker,
and will send such speedsters as
Jim Skinner. Francis Heydt, John
Sharemet, Ted Horlenko and Jack
Patten into the battle.
