James Kline of Erie, Pa., was named
senior football manager for the 1942
season at the annual grid banquet
yesterday. He fills the spot occupied
by William Hurley this year. Named
as alternate manager was Howard De-
Young. Also selected as aids for the
football squad for next year were
five junior managers. They include
Merritt Bigelow, Samuel Emmons,
Donald Howell, Robert Oberfelder and
Louis Froikin, alternate.
Before the big banquet got under
way coaches, players and visiting cele-
brities were swamped with demands
for autographs by a large milling
crowd of high school athletes. Hal
Newhouser, youthful Detroit Tiger,
southpaw, barely had a chance to get
to his place at the dinner. Tom Har-
mon was kept plenty busy before and
after the big doings with admirers.
He made his nightly sports broadcast
over a Detroit radio station during the
course of the proceedings.

the Wolverines play this year often
remark that Ceithaml never calls a
wrong play.
Celthml, who is the third succes-
sive back to be elected captain of
the Wolverine football team, was the
"iron, man" of the 1941 squad. He
played 435 minutes out of a pos-
sible 480.
Tht selection of Kelto as the team's
most valuable player proved that hard
work and dependability will reap
their own rewards
The husky tackle was a reserve for
two years and was never suspected
of developing into first class material.
But the big fellow fooled his critics
by becoming one of Michigan's most
accomplished tackles.
Crisler had much prais'e for the
"Rube" and didn't hesitate to express
it. Said the astute-Wolverine nientor,
"Kelto was one of the most valuable
players I have ever known. I l1ave

Sophomore candidates for the
1941-42 Michigan basketball team
held the center of Coach Bennie Oos-
terbaan's attention yesterday during
'practice. The Wolverine cage coach
plans to cut his squad either today
or tomorrow and he wants to be cer-
tam that he keeps the pick of his ma-
Oosterbaan is pleased with the
showing of his sophomores, and felt
that some of them would see quite a
bit of action during the coming sea-
son. Yesterday a soph quintet com-
posed of Bob Shemky, Bill MacCon-
nachie, Morrie Bikoff, Bob Gilbert
and Wally Spreen scrimmaged the
veterans of last year in an intensive
hour drill. Capt. Bill Cartmill, Leo
Doyle, Jim Mandler, Mel Comin and
Don Holman opposed them.
The Michigan mentor stressed ball'
handling during the scrimmage,j
which is really needed to build a fast,
breaking team. Although outscored
by the veterans, the sophomores were
not outclassed. Every man showed
that he would give the letter winners
of last year plenty of comIetition
for starting berths.
With 20 games on the schedule,
Coach Oosterbaan's squad faces a
tough season. "The outlook for the
coming season is fair," he stated. "We
may be a little slow in starting, but
as soon as the sophomores get the
necessary experience, we'll give the
other teams trouble." The new squad
boasts more height than last year's
team, which was one of its short-
comings. The starting team will prob-
ably average one or two inches over
six feet.
All the players are in good condi-
tion except' Big Jim Mandler, last
year's center, who has been suffering
from a head cdld for the last week.
However, he jias been practicing
daily. Most of the squad has been
working out under the eye of Assis-
tant Coach Ernie McCoy for four
Badger Students
'Sick And Tired'
MADISON, Wis., Nov. 25-()-
Wisconsin students "are sick and
tired of alibis for football victories,"
The Daily Cardinal, University stu-
deht newspaper, said in an editorial
Blaming the coaching staff for the
football team's showing this year, the
editorial said in part:
"We believe that somewhere along
the line basic fundamentals of the
game have been overlooked. The hard
low tackle is a rarity,.on the Wiscon-
sin gridirQri. Blocking is much the
same. Our pass defense has been dis-
"It's the coaches' fault-here we
will take our stand."
Harry Stuhldreher has been the
Badger grid coach since 1936.

The fraternity swimming and water
polo standings present a situation
which is to be expected with the same
three teams leading in each sport.
Chi Phi, Phi Kappa Psi, and Sigma
Alpha Epsilon have all reached the
semifinals in swimming and the same
situation prevails in water polo with
the exception that SAE must defeat
Trigon to stay in the 'semifinals.
Michigan House, always strong in
bowling, is seeking its second title
in three years in that sport. How-
ever, though leading with a record
of six wins and no defeats, their
leadership is being challenged by
Fletcher (5-3), Hinsdale (4-2), and
Williams and Winchell (3-0) .
Adams House continues its losing
ways with a record of no wins and
six losses.
Four players remain in the All-
Campus tennis tournament. Dick
Bruns will play George Madiel, while
Ray Schneider is paired with Charles
Ochab. These matches will be
played Sunday, Nov. 30, at 10 a.m.
at the Sports Building. The finals
will be played one week later.
The annual handball singles
turnament begins Monday, Dec. 1,
and a new champion will be found
this year since last year's winner, Al
Israel, will not be around to defend
the title . . . Entries are now be-
ing taken for a twenty-one tourna-
ment, consisting of long and short
basketball shots. Max Kanter wonx
this tournament last year.
Though there is always plenty of
action at the Sports Building, this
Saturday is going to be one of the
busiest days in a long -time. From
10:30 a.m. to noon, over a thousand
high school coaches and officials will
hold a basketball rules meeting of
the State High School Athletic Asso-
ciation. At 1:30 p.m. the freshmen
and sophomores will have their in-
terclass games, while at 3 p.m. there
will be some of the regularly' sched-
uled volleyball contests. Then at 4
p.m. various games will be held for a
group of Fort Custer soldiers here as
guests of the Hillel Foundation. In
the evening will come the matches of
the Ann Arbor Badminton Club and
co-recreational swimming. What a

ter post
Garnaas and Chambers were tied
for the quarterback slot, Paul Gover-
nali of Columbia and Otto Graham
of Northwestern were awarded the
halfback positions while Greene of
Iowa was chosen fullback.
In spite of the fact that he was
not a unanimous choice, however, Go-
vernali, the Lions' great passer, at-
tracted the loftiest praise from many
of the Wolverines. "He was a back
who could really take punishment
and come back for more-a great
sportsman," was the comment of
Tommy Kuzma.
Governali Never Complained
"He took an awful beating and
never complained," was tackle Bob
Flora's opinion of the Columbia ace.

sensation, was the favorite of ex-Capt.'
