Frosh Coeds Say 'No'...
ABOUT two weeks ago the M Club tossed out several feelers on the possi-
bility of freshman coeds carrying on one of Michigan's oldest traditions
-the wearing of the Maize and Blue "pot" by first year students. The coeds
were appealed to because of the lack of Michigan males on campus. In an
effort to ascertain the attitude of froshwomen on the subject, we inter-
viewed seven new Michigan coeds whom we considered to be a fair cross-
section of those now on campus. Their answers appear to indicate that
coeds in general don't like the idea.
ALBERTA VANCE-"We freshman girls do not want to break tradition
intentionally, but the war has decreed that our money can be spent to
better advantage than on 'pots.' Ann Arbor weather, bless its depend-
ability, plays havoc with a girl's locks. A babushka is much more practical
when it's sold-cold and damp. How can we be beautiful when our hair
is dangling in our eyes? Only Veronica Lake can do that. Any girl, espe-
cially a freshman trying to compete with her upperclass sisters, has a
tremendous handicap to overcome. Why make it more difficult by
singling her out with a little 'pot'?"
MTAXINE BURKOFF-"What sense is there in freshman coeds wearing
'pots' when the tradition belongs to the men? Why does the M Club
want us to wear them, knowing that one coed will wear the 'pot' only if her
classmates do likewise?"
TOMMY BERGQUIST--"There are approximately 200 first-year men
on campus. If the M Club wants to carry on the tradition, why doesn't
it let them do it? Women have taken men's place everywhere else; let
there be at least one exception. I'd rather not wear one, even though it
may sound as if I lacked Michigan spirit."
BARB STORGAARD-"I don't like the idea. I've talked to a lot Of the
coeds in my classes and most of them tell me they don't want to wear
them. Besides, the 'pot' wouldn't match everything we wore to classes. It's
easy enough to distinguish us as freshies now without the help of the 'pot'."
BEA THOMAS-"I think it would be cote to wear the pot' if all the girls
agreed to the idea. So many things are lost during the wad it would
be nice if we could keep something even if it's only a tradition. Of course,;
I would want to wear a kerchief during cold and damp weather."
ROSE MARY DOTY-"I don't like the idea. It's rather unpractical to
wear a 'pot' during cold and damp weather. It would probably be fun
during the milder weather in the spring andsummer. The only type of 'pot'
the girls would wear is the little skull cap without a visor. Anything else
would be unpopular."
HELEN MORLEY--'Tradition is a wonderful thing and should be re-.
tained. I'd be willing to wear a 'pot' if I was assured that all the coeds
were agreeable. However, I certainly don't want to single myself out If
a majority of the other frosh coeds don't want to play ball."
When the M Club originally decided to find out the women's reaction
to wearing 'pots,' the practical side of the question was obviously forgotten.
By that .statement we mean the three points coeds are generally agreed
upon: It's too cold and damp to give up the kerchief; the 'pot' is hardly
suited to all types of clothing the girls wear; and it would single out thel
froshwomen even more than her just-out-of-high-school look does. Therel
are too many angles to be considered in dealing with women in matters ofa
dress and appearance. It would be easier to sell senior men on the idea.

Kugma, Franks
DETROIT, Nov. 27.-(P).-Univer-
sity of Michigan alumni rallied to-
night around the Little Brown Jug to
honor the 1943 Wolverine football
squad, but the party resolved largely
into a great tribute to Tom Kuzma
and Julius Franks, 1942 gridiron stars
who now are confined to University
Iospital, Ann Arbor.
In a two-way telephone connection
to their hospital ward, banquet offi-
cials talked to Kuzma and Franks
and in turn heard them pay tribute
to Michigan's 1943 eleven.
Then Fred Matthaei, Michigan
alumni leader, announced to the two
boys that $2,000 had been subscribed
at the party toward the continuation
of their education when they are dis-
charged from the hospital. The two
ex-footballers have lung ailments.

was accurate, the ball-handling was
good, and they seemed to work to-

NEW YORK, Nov. 27.-(P)-Able
Angelo Bertelli, the "Springfield
Rifle" of Notre Dame's mighty grid-
iron power until Uncle Sam put the
finger on him in mid-season, today,
won the Heisman Trophy as the out-
standing college player of 1943, by a
vote of sports writers and broadcast-
ers throughout the country.
The quarterbacking brain and
pass-pitching ace of the Irish for six
all-victorious games before being or-
dered to the U.S. Marine Base at
Parris Island, S.C., won ,in a walk,
polling 648 points-more than the
combined total of the next five can-;
didates in the balloting held annual-
ly by the Downtown A.C. here. Near-
est to him were Bob Odell, Pennsyl-
vania's crack defensive back, with
177, and Otto Graham of Northwest-
ern, with 140.
Finishing "in the money" for the
third time-he was second in 1941
and fourth last year-Bertelli was
elected top man in every section of
st Pacific Coast, Midwest and
East. In this, he duplicated the
award-winning vote piled up for
Frankie Sinkwich, the Georgia Gal-
loper, a year ago.
As usual, the trophy will be for-
mally presented at an annual dinner.
