Michigan football stars,! No longer
can you be the only conquering heroes
to drag your muddy forms from the
unfeeling gridiron. No longer can you
reign supreme as the blushing victors
in the punt and pass game. Your
kingdom is challenged-and by
whom? The women, of course.
To be sure they aren't wearing
padded uniforms and their aerial at-
tack is subject to criticism, but they
have begun to play, and once they
begin you 220 pounders had better
start shaking in your shoes.
The first official game was held
Wednesday morning between the
Theta Tigers and the Delta Gamma
Dragons, with the former winning by
the triumphant score of 12-0. The
game was played in the Theta bowl
and was a clever battle from start
to finish with the Theta's winning by
virtue of their superior strategy.
These two teams are the only ones
organized so far, but it is rumored
that the Alpha Phi's and other houses
are starting a strenuous training pro-
gram which will enable them to chal-
lenge the leaders any day now.
