on his collegiate career-the
in Michigan history and,
in the nation.
72,000 fans who witnessed

Harmon's last stand with the famous
"98" on his blue jersey included
thousands of Buckeye students.
Harmon wore the Maize and Blue of
Michigan, but the Ohioans recog-
nized him as a great athlete. The
spirit of the Buckeyes is expressed in
a letter received by The Daily from
Sports Editor Joe Halberstein, of the
Ohio State Lantern, the Columbus
school's daily newspaper. It states:
"I believe that I speak, not only
for myself, but for all Ohio State
sports fans, when I say that the news
of Tom Harmon's disappearance is
almost as shocking to us as it Was
to you.
" . . . we are quick to recognize a
great athlete and Tom Harmon was
truly a great one. As one of the
72,000 people who sat in Ohio Stadi-
um that fateful day in 1940 when

he ended his collegiate career, I can
verify that.
"In a special open letter to the
student body . . . I urged them to
drop a letter to Mr. and Mrs. Har-
mon . . . to pep them up . .. If this
had happened to an Ohio State
sports great, you, of Michigan, would
have done the same for us. This is
the least that we can do.
. . . Keep your fingers crossed,
fellows, and Tom will score again."
It will be a long time before Ohio
State can forget the picture Harmon
left in their minds on that fall after-
noon in 1940. Three times the Gary
Ghost ripped across the goal line to
score as the Wolverines downed the
Buckeyes, 40-0. It was Harmon's
swan song and he was in perfect
harmony as he bowed out before the
72,000 cheering fans.

A GRIDDER PHILOSOPHIZES:
Wolverine football fans have won-
dered why Tom Kuzma, one of
Michigan'# outstanding halfbacks
during the past two seasons, did
not report for spring practice two
weeks ago. Hereis the answer in
Tom's own words:
"Since the Advanced ROTC was
called to active duty last month, a
lot of the boys have been concentrat-
ing more on their school work. I find
that I don't have the time that
spring practice requires so I take my
required PEM workouts each week
to keep in condition. Otherwise I
would be out there with Julie Franks,
Bill Pritula and the others."
A CASE OF FRUSTRATION:
There is a lot of ill feeling between
the Weatherman and Bill (Killer)
Cain, one of Coach Ray Fisher's
returning mound veterans. Cain
was slated to go on the trip to
Iowa, but bad weather prolonged
his illness and forced him to stay
home.
Then he was slated to see action
against Notre Dame at South Bend
but the trip was called off because of
snow and cold weather. And on Fri-
day he was scheduled to face Michi-
gan Normal, but a wet field forced
postponement of the game. He may
get his chance today against Michi-
gan State-if the Weatherman al-
lows.

As a virtual hurricane wind roared
across the practice field, Coach Fritz
Crisler and his spring gridders com-
pleted their second week of workouts
yesterday behind Ferry Field House.
Crisler was unable to say how
much longer the spring practice
would last; but it has been the cus-
tom in the past to work out for six
weeks. If this plan is followed ag'ain
they would close around the end of
the first week in May.
Julie Franks, newly-elected presi-
dent of the "M" Club, and All-Amer-
ica guard on last fall's eleven, has
been a natural stand-out among this
spring's crop of inexperienced grid-
ders. Not only has Julie been out-

standing in the scrimmages, but he
has been giving the other linemen a
few of the finer points of the game.
George Guerre, better known to
Crisler as "Shorty," and Bill Culli-
gan, backs, have been doing some
good running, occasionally breaking
away for long touchdown jaunts.
This week also saw the loss of Jim
Brieske to the squad for the rest of
the spring workouts. "Old Auto-
matic" suffered a recurrence of an
old knee injury during the course of
a bruising scrimmage.
That the two weeks practice has
had good effects on the men is made
evident by their own remarks. Many
of them have said that the daily
workouts have improved their con-
dition markedly, giving them a bet-
ter chance to get ahead in the armed
services when called.
Possibly. an added incentive for
hard work has been the fact that
reporting daily to practice takes the
place of attending the PEM sessions.
The boys will be excused from these
classes for the rest of the semester.

By BUD LOW
A muddy infield made necessary
the postponing of the baseball game
with Michigan Normal yesterday and
so the Maize and Blue nine will have
to wait until 2:30 this afternoon,
when they play Michigan State, to
open the home season.
Coach Ray Fisher expects to start
Pro Boim on the mound for the var-
sity, but he may be taken out after
several innings in order to give
Mickey Fishman a much needed
workout. The rest of the lineup will
remain the same as that which
played in the two Iowa contests a
week ago at Iowa City.
The Spartans have always had an
excellent ball club, and this year is
no exception. Coach John Kobs is
starting a team that has veterans at
every position except left field, al-
though the State mentor is a little
worried about his pitching problem.
The Green and White squad seems
to be lacking In good hurling talent
despite the fact that one of two let-
termen will start the game.
State Lineup
The starting pitching assignment
will fall to either Colin Getz or Dick
Burnitt, Kobs announced yesterday.
The infield will be composed of
Howie Ladue at first, Captain Roy
Chlopan on the keystone sack, Bob
Andreoli at shortstop, and Art Mai-
schoss will hold down the hot corner.
Freshman Bob Proulx will start at
left, Frank Pellerin will be in center,
and Ed Ciolek will be in right to
round out the outfield. Bucky Walsh
is the probable starter behind the
plate for the Spartans.
Spartan Pitching Poor
In a statement the other day, Kobs
said, "Give us one first class pitcher
and we will be all right. Lack of
pitching is a weakness we can't seem
to overcome." This fact alone might
be the downfall of the Spartans to-
day, for if the Wolverine batters can
tee off on a few of the State pitchers'
offerings, Michigan may avenge the
defeat they suffered In the second
game of the series last year.
The Maize and Blue nine won the
first game last year when the Spar-

tans outhit us eight to six, but lost
by a 2-1 score. This year, however,
Michigan is gifted with the well bal-
anced hurling staff, while State will
have to rely on power at the plate
and a tight defensive game.
- The baseball squad has had a
tough break in the weather lately,
having had three games either can-
celled or postponed since the season
began last week.
Weather Drives
Thinclads Inside
As Relays Near
Mark Twain said that no one ever
did anything about the weather.
Well, he was wrong. Ken Doherty,
Varsity track coach, has done some-
thing about it.
Denied the use of the outdoor
quarter-mile track by an ill-natured
and uncooperative Weatherman for
nearly two weeks, Doherty has sent
his trackmen back into Yost Field
House where conditions can be con-
trolled by man.
And when the Weatherman gets
over his bad disposition, the Wolver-
ine coach will acknowledge the fact
by taking over the outdoor cinder
track again.
'The men must spend enough time
outdoors," Doherty pointed out, "to
get accustomed to the outdoor con-
ditions. The colder air and wind re-
act differently on the runners than
the conditions in the Field House
do," he declared, "and they need the
outdoor workouts."
Indoor workouts this week have
been centered around wind sprints,
relay races and baton passing. Every
practice session has been a part of
Doherty's plan to condition the team
for the first outdoor test-the Penn
Relays in Philadelphia . Saturday,
April 24. Michigan will have the op-
portunity of competing in six relay
events, although Coach Doherty does
not expect to enter that many quar-
tets.

Still confined to indoor courts and
hoping for a break in the weather,
Michigan's tennis team is going into
its last three days of practice before
its opener next Wednesday against
Michigan State at East Lansing.
The Wolverines have had only one
day of outdoor practice this year,
and that at a time when the courts
had holes and rough spots all over
them and were nowhere near playing
condition. The netters plan to get
in at least two days practice outside
next week before meeting the Spar-
tans, however.
As yet the Wolverine rankings
aren't definite, but they probably will
be decided by matches over the week-
end. To date Freshman Roger Lewis
is the number one man by virtue of a
7-5, 6-3 win over Captain Jinx John-
son, the number two player. Johnson
had previously defeated Lewis and
Fred Wellington to take the top spot.
Roy Bradley, number four man,
also moved up a notch, winning a
three-set battle from Wellington dur-
ing the week. He had previously
beaten off the challenge of Roy Bou-
cher, the number five player. Fred
Sleator, a senior playing his first
year of varsity tennis, holds down
the number six spot.
Only two doubles combinations are
definite, but as in singles, the order
in which they will start next Wednes-
day isn't. Johnson and Bradley make
up one team, while Wellington and
Lewis comprise the other.
