350 Met
Tennis Squad
To h ave Fimial
Cut ij Weeks
Faced with the necessity of getting
a squad picked and in condition for
its first match against Michigan
State April 24, Michigan's tennis
coach, Leroy Weir, is planning to
make the final cut of his squad this
Amount of practice space and the
supply of balls available will be the
main factors in determining the
number of players to be carried.
Now limited to two and sometimes
three courts for three times a week,
none of the 24 players still out get
sufficient practice.
Coach Weir, however, hopes to
carry at least 15, and perhaps 20
players. Two of his top'-rankingI
netters, Captain Jinx Johnson and
Jerry Gurman, face an early draft
call. Johnson is in lA and Gurman
has already taken his blood test.
Both have looked especially good
this year, promising to ease the loss
of .five of last year's regulars.
Fred Wellington and Roger Lewis
are two others who will make things.
interesting for Wolverine opponents.
Wellington, playing a practice match
against Jim Porter, last season's
number two man, has shown some-
thing close to mid-season form. He
is the other letterman holdover from
last season.

NEW YORK, March 15.-(/P)-_-
Corporal Barney Ross, hero of the
Marine Corps at Guadalcanal, was
taken to the U.S. Navy Hospital at
St. Albans, Long Island, early to-
night suffering a recurrence of ma-
larial fever which he contracted in
the war zone.
The Navy Public Relations Office
said that the former boxer's condi-
tion was not serious, but was unable
to say how long Ross would remain

Sick Boy Feels Kuzma Can Win War

Spunky, ten-year-old Jackie Fris-.
bee, who has patiently undergone
numerous operations at the Univer-
sity Hospital with a cheerful grin,
thinks that this war will be over "just
as soon as Tommie Kuzma gets in."
Jackie entered the hospital some
time ago when he was accidently shot
in the left cheek while playing with
his pal. The bullet' lodged in his
cheek and as a result doctors have
been forced to graft until his cheek
But that will be another year, orl
possibly two, doctors say.

Meanwhile, Jackie isn't kicking,
because he can't go out and play like
the rest of the kids he knows. He's
going to wait until he's better "so I
can play football."
His idol, says Jackie, is Tommie
Kuzma, but he will settle for Julie
Franks, the guard from Hamtramck.
Says Jackie, ,Do you think maybe
Tommie will come and see me some-
time, if I write him a letter?"
Jackie has already sent a letter to
Kuzma telling him where he can be
found, and now he hopes that Franks
will also come to see him.

"I'll bet those Japs will be sorry
they started this war when Tommie
gets in there against them," he said.
His ambition-to watch Kuzma in
action on the gridiron. Jackie thinks
Kuzma is "the greatest football play-
er in the world." And Franks comes
next on Jackie's all-star team.
It would be the thrill of b, lifetime
to Jackie, if both "the greatest foot-
ball player in the world" and Franks
would visit him. Jackie can be found
in the west wing of the third-floor
ward at the hospital.

A Siot in the A rn
MICHIGAN may have a football
team next fall after all, even
though Coach Fritz Crisler will lose
nearly every member of his 1942
Varsity squad via the draft, Air
Corps, Navy, ERC or Marines. And
it may be the Navy that will relieve
his headache.
Earlier this month Navy offi-
cials announced that they would
put more than 1,300 men on active
duty here July 1 for a period of
specialized training. These men
may become candidates for Cris-
ler's Wolverine eleven-if they
find the time.
The Navy has declared that men
on its rolls will be allowed to com-
pete on Varsity teams, provided the
participation does not conflict with
their service duties, and they have
sufficient time to do so. And that


time factor may be Crisler's big bug-
aboo . .

Program To Be
Same as That
Of 'M' Students
IM Building To Serve
As Center for Shifts
Working Out Daily
Michigan's strenuous PEM course
has been approved by Army officials
and will be used to train the 350
men of the Meteorology Group who
arrived this week.
The soldiers will be given the same
treatment that is given to the stu-
dents here to strengthen their bodies
for the rigors of war. They will
train at the Intramural Building and
will take their PEM training three
times a week. The shifts will be
split up and some of the boys will be
at the gym daily in order to facili-
tate matters for the directors of the
IM Building.
The sergeant in charge of these
men is the well-known "Frosty" Pet-
ers, who was a star halfback at the
University of Illinois some years
ago. Sergeant Peters told the men
during their first drill today that the
minute one of the PEM instructors
steps in front of themfor their exer-
cises, he is in full charge of them,
and they are to obey his orders im-
Riskey in Charge
Earl Riskey, director of the IM
Building, is in charge of this physi-
cal hardening program for the Mete-
orology cadets. Everything that is
done during these drills is strictly
under the regulations of the Army.
The cadets are to march into the IM
Building in formation, then to pro-
ceed to the dressing rooms in this
same order and from there to the
gym floor. After the drill is over
the cadets are to march again in
military order to the lockers and
then back to their quarters.
Many of the instructors were im-
pressed by the way the cadets re-
spond to the various commands giv-
en to them and many of them felt
that it would be quite a pleasant ex-
perience to teach these boys the
fundamentals of our PEM system.
Staff Members Hope for Success
It is hoped by the heads of the
PEM staff that the Meteorology Ca-
dets will respond to the system of
PEM in the same successful manner
as have Michigan students.
The PEM program that Michigan
men have been undergoing, is the
regular training program as set up
by the Army manual, which is the
reason that the Meteorology stu-
dents have been given approval to
take the course. With the abun-
dance of physical education instruc-
tors at the University, it is an admir-
able setup for any group, and the
plan to give the soldiers the benefit
of PEM instruction by our instruc-
tors has been heartily endorsed by
Herbert "Fritz" Crisler, Director of
The cadets were shown around the
IM Building yesterday, ajd were
noticeably impressed by th modern
equipment, and excellent facilities
afforded by the IM Building, and
also by the large numbers of instruc-
tors who will be giving them their
term will be held Saturday, March 20,
2:00-4:00 p.m., at the Katherine Pckrill
House, 328 East Huron. All are welcome
to attend.
