More On Mr. Greene ...
YOU should have heard the Michi-
gan band practicing "Go You,
Northwestern" down at South Ferry
Field yesterday afternoon. Those
boys are taking nq chances. There
are some pretty vitriolic editorialists
on the student paper down at Evan-
ston, too.
We are referring, of course, to
the infamous Mr. Greene who is
stirring up all the trouble over at
Michigan State. The only thing
we can say on that score is that we
wish we could have run into one of
those untutored Spartan coeds
who left the friendly shelter of
East Lansing to travel to wicked
Ann Arbor without first having
been taught the difference between
right and wrong. ,
All the Michigan State girls we've
ever known seemed to be fully as
worldly as those at Michigan. As a
matter of fact . . . but, no, why say

We've known Tom Greene for
about five years and his latest esca-
pade reminds us of an incident he
told us about when he was a fresh-
man at State. In high school, Tom,
who had straight A's for four years
incidentally, had always rebelled
against authority and he evidently
didn't stop when he became a col-
One day, he told me, the deanj
called him into his office. As he1
stepped arrogantly up to that
gentleman's desk, the man looked
up at him and said simply, "Mr
Greene, you are very cynical for
one so young."
Little did that august personage
know that, three years later, his opin-
ion would be confirmed. Burdened
by the weight of years, Tommy is no
longer young. But he's still very,
very cynical.

WE COULD RAISE an awful fuss
if we wanted to. Those tickets
for this week's Wolverine-Wildcat
brawl that the Ngrthwestern author-
ities are sending up here are sure
terrible. Most of them seem to call
for seats in some remote area known
only as section A. But don't worry
if you got one of those. We've been
in Dyche Stadium and we know that
you can see diart of the playing field
from section A. Not much of course,
but enough.
However, if we were a manof
Greene's tendencies, we would blast
the Wildcat brasshats with a dia-
tribe that would be remembered
down through the years. It would
probably be referred to in hushed
whispers in Evanston as "the in-
cident of section A."
Incidentally, there's a story going
around the campus that the Ann
Arbor delegation is going to leave as
a body Saturday if the Northwestern
band doesn't play "I Want To Go
Back To Michigan." Probably just
an idle rumor.
FOUL TIPS: Tippy Lockard is join-
ing the Navy . . . he'll take his
physical exam right after football
season . . . if accepted, he will re-
port for duty at the end of the first
semester . .
Harry Tillotson, Michigan ticket
manager, announces that a capacity
rowd will likely be on hand for the
Minnesota clash. Only 5,000 tickets
are still on handl, all of them in the
end zone. It may be the biggest gath-
ering in Wolverine football history.
Frosh To Hold
Distance Grind
Plebe Harriers To Seek
New Record Nov. 13
Nearly 50 eager and hopeful frosh
trackmen will compete in the annual
Michigah freshman cross-country
run Thursday, Nov. 13, over the long
fairways and rolling .hills of the
beautiful University golf course.
Goal of these hopeful harriers will
be the freshman record of 10:05 for
the two-mile course. Johnny Inger-
soll set this standard last fall when
he nipped Ernie Leonardi at the tape
in a photo finish, with Herbie Collins
First three entries in the handi-
cap group to cross the finish line were
Roosevelt Stiger, Johnny McCarty
and Ken Brondyke. Medals were
awarded to all six runners.
Coach Chester Stackhouse will hold
this year's grind over the same course
and will award medals to three win-
ners in the handicap group and three,
runners who start from scratch. Time
handicaps will be so distributed that
every entrant will have an equal
chance for victory.
Freshmen who are interested in
running and would like to compete in
the annual affair are invited and

urged to report to Coach Stackhouse
at Ferry Field now. There is still time
enough for conditioning workouts.
Previous experience in track is un-
necessary, Stackhouse said.
The annual Inter-Fraternity
Track Meet will be held at 4 p.m.
today at Ferry Field. In addition
to the four regular events, there
will be four novelty relays: leap
frog, shuttle, progressive broad
jumping and potato.

Team Doctor
States Elmer
Will Not Play
Gridders Practice Passing.
Defense; Expect Heavy
Wildcat Aerial Attack
Injuries struck again at the Wol-
verine Varsity eleven when Dr. A. W.
Coxon informed the Daily last night
that Elmer Madar, George Ceithaml's
understudy at quarterback. will be on
the sidelines for Saturday's battle
with Northwestern at Evanston.
Madar injured his shoulder in the
Iowa game and then aggravated it
during one of the practice sessions
before the Pitt fray. The first time
he threw a block on one of the
Pittsburgh players, he knew he was
in for trouble, and his already tender
shoulder became so painful that El-
mer soon had to leave the game. The
injury has failed to respond to treat-

Varsity Squad
Proves To Be
'Melting Pot'
Notre Dame has long been noted
for its "Fighting Irish," the fame of t
Minnesota's tow-headed Swedes has t
spread to every corner of the gridiron
kingdom; while the football history
of Fordham's great team has invari-
ably been written by its long named
Polish lads. But an attempt yester-
day to find a predominant race on the
1941 Michigan football team proved
merely to be another indication of
the great American "melting pot."
A poll among the Michigan grid-
ders revealed that no less than eight-
een different racial stocks are rep-
resented, the enumeration of which
sounds like the roll-call of the old
League of Nations.
Germans Head List
The Germans head the list with
five members: Bill Melzow, Tippy Loc-
kard, Walt Freihofer, George Hilde-
brandt and Bob Stenberg. Tied for
second place come the English with
Ted Kennedy, Paul White, Don Rob-
inson and Chuck Haslam; and the
Czechs with George Ceithaml, Bob
Kolesar, Rudy Smeja and Elmer Ma-
"When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" is
the theme song of Bob Ingalls, Phil
Sharpe and Leo Cunningham; while
Dave Nelson claims Scotch ancestry.
The Scandinavian delegation con-
sists solely of Harry Anderson, who
springs from Norwegian parents. The
closest you can come to being a pure
blooded Lithuanian is to be like Al
Wistert and Jack Karwales.
Two Finns On Team
No Michigan team would be com-
plete without a couple of Finns so
this year's representatives are Rube
Kelto and John Laine. The pride of
Holland is rested on the sturdy shoul-
ders of Harlin Fraumann and Don
Boor. Flop Flora's folks hail from
Italy. Husky guard Merv Pregulman
is of Russian-Jewish descent while
Bill Pritula's parents came from the
neighboring region of the Ukraine.
There was difficulty in finding a
full-blooded Pole on the team this
year, so the closest we could come to
that was Al Thomas who had great
grahd-parents from that country.
Ralph Amstuz takes Ed Frutig's place
as Switzerlan's representative on the
All of which leads us to wonder
what ever became of all the Indians.
Freshman classes in physical
education will begin Monday
in Waterman Gymnasium, Dr.
George May, director, announced.
Gym costumes will be required.
All freshmen are requested to
secure locker assignments this
week and to purchase locker and
towel coupons which are available
at the cashier's office in the South
Wing of University Hall.

ment, aand it became apparent yes-
terday that he would not be able to
see service this week-end.
Coach Fritz Crisler spent most of
yesterday's practice putting his
charges through a rigid pass defense
with the 'red shirts' throwing every-
thing they could at the Varsity's sec-
ondary composed of Bob Ingalls,
Cethaml, Bob Westfall, Tom Kuzma
and Paul White. Davey Nelson and
Tippy Lockard took turns alternating
with Kuzma and White respectively.
The Wolverines, however, did not
let their offense take a back seat.
Kuzma, Nelson, White and Don Rob-
inson spent quite a bit of time heav-
ing the pigskin to the backs and the
New plays held the spotlight as the
gridders went to work on their ground
attack. "Bullet" Westfall showed
that the two days he spent in the
University Hospital haven't slowed
him up as he literally ripped the 'red
shirt' line to shreds.
