Directed by Prof. William D. Rev-

Lohla of the Department of Military
Science and Tactics, the band has al-
ready been declared one of the finest
in the nation by top-notch sports re-

Mendelssohn Theatre, Director Bob
Adams, '30, announced yesterday.,
Ingham's script was awarded $400

According to Jim Gorinson, '42,

Playing a "bubble medley" com-

a huge soap bubble pipe and will then
proceed to "blow" a gigantic bubble.
In honor of football captain Bob
Westfall, ensuing formations by the
band will include the formation of
the word BOB, during which the band
will sing "College Days," the- first
gridiron singing it has done this year.
It is desired that spectators join in
the singing, Professor Revelli said.

TenMichigan Gridders To Play
Their Last College Game Today

To upwards of 85,753 people today's
Michigan-Ohio State grid clash may,
be just another series of the thrills
and spills that accompany every
other top notch football game, but to
10 members of the Wolverine team
today's contest brings a tinge of sad-
For this afternoon's Wolverine-
Buckeye clash represents for these 10
seniors the moment all great ath-
letes never look forward to-the final
bow of a delightful career. After to-
day the roar of the crowd, the thrill
of combat, the pride of wearing Maize
and Blue colors, all will be memories.
For many of these retiring seniors
it will mark the third year in a Wol-
verine uniform. To some this is their
first year of competition. But veter-
ans or novices, all have contributed to
Michigan's immortal football heri-
Here are just a fewr things to re-
member about each of the gridders
before they becomehMichigan legends:
Capt. Bob Westfall: Recently pro-
claimed by Coach Fritz Crisler the
greatest fullback that he had ever
coached. ... number one exponent of
the spinner nlayin collegiate com-'
petition today . . . his line plunges
have beenresponsible for many a
Michigan victory. . . in conference
competition last year was the leading
ground gainer ... almost certain of
All-American honors . . . was a valu-
able Michigan captain.
Bob Ingalls: Carrying out the Wol-
verines',tradition of great centers..

one of the best linesmen in the coun-
try . . . mentioned for All-American'
honors . . . showed his versatility by
filling in for Forest Evashavski at
quarterback in his sophomore year
... hasn't made a bad pass all year.
Rube Kelto: "Old Reliable" him-
self . . . long under-rated by scribes
and spectators, Rube is really "a foot-
ball player's football player" . . .sel-
dom speaks but makes up for it in
action.. . one of Michigan's most de-
pendable linemen.
Harlin Iraumann: When things
looked dark as far as ends were con-
cerned the tow-headed Dutchman

wide end run . . . his height 'makes
him an excellent pass receiver.
Dive Nelson: One of the most col-
orful players on the squad . . . his

ski and the rest of that magnificent-
crew that made Fritz Crisler's Michi-
gan coaching career a successful one.
But the Crisler-coached lads of Ann
Arbor shrugged off the skepticism of
the experts and faced the gigantic
task that confronted them. The re-
sult is that when they line up for the
opening kickoff against Ohio State
today, they will be sporting an im-
pressive record of six victories and
only one defeat, and that at the
hands of mighty Minnesota.
Today's contest will mark the 38th
renewal of the Michigan-Ohio State
football rivalry. It started back in
1897 and the records show 4 decided
edge in favor of the Wolverines. To
date, the Michigan boys have come
out on top 25 times while the Bucks
can only point to ten victories over
the local outfit. Two of the encoun-
ters have ended in deadlocks.
More than the traditional rivalry
wil be at stake when the two forces
meet today, however, for the winner
will take undisputed possession of
second place in the Western Confer-
ence. And if Wisconsin should pull a
surprise victory over Minnesota, to-
day's winner will move into a tie for
first place honors.
Ten Varsity gridders will don the
Maize and Blue for the last time to-
day. Captain Bob Westfall, Bob In-
galls, Rube Kelto, Harlin Fraumann,
Davey Nelson, Bill Melzow, Bob Flora,
Ted Kennedy, Al Thomas, and Leo

are making Ann Arbor a big city for

Said Gov. J"hn Briker of Ohio
after twice refusing to predict a
score: "It'll be a good clean football
game . .. We're up here as guests of
Michigan, but I hope Ohio wins."
Said Chief of Police Mortenson,
with a telephone in one hand: "I'm

Busses will "rush out'of Detroit as
fast as the crowd can fill them" be-

giving up hope yet. Late yesterday
