Overcame Problem
Qne of the biggest tasks the staff
has been faced with sinlce it launched
its program arose two years ago when.
the new West 'Quadrangle dormi-
tories, living quarters for freshmen;
were opened. These men, strangers
to the campus, had to be provided for
in a hurry., The great success of .the
Residence Hall league speaks well
for the efficiency of the department.,
Team competition was providied for
the first-year dormitory students in
a variety of sports and the new divi-
sion, separate from the fraternity,
faculty and independent loops, im-

mediately became a major part of
the program. Leagues were conduct-
ed in baseball, bowling, touch foot-
ball, foul throwing, golf, handball,
horseshoes, relays, swimming, table
tennis, tennis, track, volleyball and
wrestling. The season closed with a
banquet at which team and individu-
al champions were given recognition.
Thb same program was prepared for,
last year and included the newly
erected East Quadrangle.
I-M Activities
While getting the new loops un-
derway, the staff succeeded in main-
taining the smooth operation of
those activities which have been a
part of the schedule from its begin-
ning. Fraternity teams continued to
fight for championships in most of
the above sports in addition to speed-
ball-a game invented here at Mich-
igan-ice hockey and squash. Inde-
pendent men- and faculty members
also carried on with a full program
of team sports, as well as having an
opportunity to compete for all-cam-
pus titles ,in archery, badminton,
codeball, fencing, rifle shooting, and
To participate in any of the tour-

squad members may not compete in
any sport going on during the season
of their service with the varsity, and
freshmen squad members may ,not

nition of fraternity status.

it was always hard to believe that two

Bullet's neck couldn't bring him down
because they were worrying about
what Tommy was doing.
Speedy Backs
Around Westfall will be formed a'
backfield whose speed should har-
ass opponent's flanks unmercifully.
At tailback, Crisler has yet to choose
his' number one man from among
:iplc-threat Don Robinson, hard-
unning'Tom Kuzma, or one of the
peedy duo of DaveyaNelson and

Whenever possible of course, Coach
Crisler wvill substitute for Westfall in
search of the man who can take over
Bob's duties next autumn. Don Boor,
roly-poly sophomore, is the brightest
prospect on the basis of his yoeman
work thus far.
Line Is Strong
Consideration now shifts to the}
front men for these backfield crowd-
pleasers. On the whole, the line ap-
pears to be almost as rugged, fast
and capable as the famed Seven
Ground Hogs of 1940. At center, sen-
ior Bob Ingalls returns and will be
out to earn the All-Conference rating
accorded him by many grid experts
in their spring advances. Behind
Ingalls is another senior, Ted Ken-
nedy, who needs only a little more
experience on defense to be Big Red's
equal at the pivot position.
Purdue is sid to have the best
guards in the Conference, a claim
which must remain a moot question
because the Boilermakers and Wol-
verines do not tangle. Several times
last year, games were held up while
Bob Kolesar was searched for con-
cealed weapons. The 195-pound jun-
ior plays football strictly for keeps.
His partner at the other guard spot
will likely be Bill Melzow, whose in-

has already been prematurely en-
graved on several 1941 All-America;
certificates. For reserve duty, Crisleri
can call on Bob Flora and Ted Denise,
both of whom are veterans.
At end alone is the line noticeably
weaker this fall, the reason being
contained in two words--Ed Fruitig,.

weaker, but with 'Westfall's indefa-

of kicking, passing and running that
Coach Crisler has at his command, a

Phi Delta Theta Wins
FraternitySports Title
Final counting of the fraternity
sports totals last year found Phi
Delta Theta in first place with 195
point margin. Scoring the largest
total number of points on record,
1,435, the Phi Delts showed strength
in every sport, although they took
championships in only two, speed-
ball and squash.
In second place with a total of
1,236 points was Sigma Chi. With'
titles in three sports, both A and
B basketball and golf, the Sigma Chis
made a game bid for the final lead.
Statistics showed that only 10 fra-
ternities entered teams in all 19
sports. Also it was found that only
one man, Herb Whipple, athletic
manager of Beta Theta Pi, partici-
pated in 11 sports during the year.
