Dafly fports Editor
The He man Side...
N SUNDAY'S DAILY appeared a story from Detroit which stated simply
that the "University of Michigan alumni ... paid great tribute to Tom
Kuzma and Julie Franks, 1942 gridiron heroes who are now confined to
University Hospital." The real story is the one behind the scenes in that
seventh fldor room at the hospital.
Our Thursday afternoon, or at least part of it, was spent in that
room. We seemed to detect an undercurrent of restlessness in Kuzma,.
It showed up in his voice, his actions, his words and hopes. He is
anxious to do something, anything that would indicate progress.

There is a different feeling coming from the bed across the
where Julie lies. Here we sense something akin to resignation. What
be, must be. That appears to be Julie's attitude under the surface.


OUTWARDLY, both Tom and Jud1e are in gay spirits with the passage
of time being just incidental, like that daily rest period from ? to
3 p. m. "This is the life" or "It's pretty soft just lying in bed" are the
words they toss at you. And they make it sound mighty convincing.
What better philosophy could either one of these two great athletes
adopt. Enforced idleness was foreign to the nature of both of these
lIichigan men before illness sidelined them. Their "make the most of
it" attitude seems to be the obvious solution to a difficult situation.
What do men think about who are confined to one room month
after month? Do they spend more time thinking about what happened in
the past? Is there more importance to events leading up to the present, or
is the emphasis on the future when hospitals, beds and medicine will be
only a" memory? That's hard to answer,
Time passes quickly for them, just as a journey seems shorter after
it is amade 100, 200 or 500 "times. There is a definite routine to each
day'and there is so much to be done that time seems to be lacking.
Naturallyi visitors are limited to certain hours. It is at these times
that the future -seems most important. Alone in their room, Tom andt
Julie ean't help but let their mina wander back to their earlier days at
TOMt. has a lot tb remember. He came here labeled as Tom Harmon's
successor. Both went to the same high school in Gary, Ind. Kuzina was
/terrific as a freshman and even more so as a sophomore halfback in 1941.
Injuries bothered him during the 1942 season, but he still showed flashes
of the would-be Kuzma.
But football wasn't Tom's only world. He was mere .wrapped up
in his military life than his friends realized. Perhaps Tom's close
friendship with Colonel Ganoe, formerly Army commandant here on
campus, may have been responsible. Both Ton and ourselves were in
the advanced unit of the ROTC and lived in barracks on campus to-
gether last spring. We learned little by little that the military spect
of his life was important. He wanted to go to basic training, OOS and
get his commission in the infantry. Illness eut his dream short.
Julie also was a success at football. A sensation as a freshman and
sophomore, Franks was All-American guard last season. His other big
interest was dentistry. Julie wanted to become a dentist more than he e er
wanted to be an All-American. It was an obcession with him.
AND SO both of them can dream about the past, thnk about the
present and visualize the future. Whie their last few years have
been somewhat similar, there are reasons to believe that the future nay
not be. Illness may change their minds, bring new ideas to the fore,
or make an active future difficult. Only God knows the answer.

Johnny Greene
Joins Matmen;
Aleh Inrjued
With the end of a great football
season, Coach Ray Courtright's po-
tentially great wrestling squad was
bolstered this week by the addition of
one of their two returning lettermen,
Johnny Greene, heavyweight grap-
pler from Pittsburgh.
Johnny has had quite a bit of mat
experience in his wrestling career,
and after his fine showing in last
year's mat wars, he should be a valu-
able asset to Courtright's forces, be-
nfg counted on to carry a large part
of this year's burden.
Now that his team is complete and
has worked off a few of the kinks
with the fundamental training that
has persisted since the start of school
this 'fall, "Corky" has stepped up the
pace'for the wrestlers by calling prac-
tice sessions on Saturdays. The boys
will immediately concentrate on get-
ting in shape and on preparing for
the first' match. Although there will
be no schedule till the Big Ten meets
in Chicago, Dec. 4, there is a great
possibility that the Michigan wrest-
lers will have matches some time dur-
ing the first part of December.
Amidst this happy throng, a little
gloom could be discerned on Coach
Courtright's countenance the other
day when he learned that Bob Allen,
165 pound letterman, will not be
available for several months. Allen,
the only other returning letterman,
pulled some ligaments in his leg and
now has his leg in a cast. This will
necessitate a change in the plans of
Coach Courtright, as he will have lost,
part of the nucleus with which he
had planned to build his team.

Vet ntJoins Squad

Varsity Sextet
To Scrimma ge
Red Wing Team
The question that any hok,.w
fans have been asking di'ring the
past week, "Who will Coach Eddie
Lowrey select for his Michigan sex-
tet this season?" was partially an-
swered at yesterday's practice when
the veteran Wolverine piloti naied
his two forwards.
Gordie Anderson, a veteran of last
year's squad, and Vince Abbey, a
newcomer, appeared to have the in-
side track on the front line positions,
although three other pucksters, Ar)'
Callentine, Jack Athens and Bob
Henderson, are still on Lowrey's pre-
ferred list of forwards.
The job of picking a defense line
still faced Lowrey today, although the
addition of three new men may help
solve the problem, John Jenswold.
Bob Roosier and Russ Walstrom ap-
peared on the Coliseum ice for prac-
tice yesterday for the first time.
Tonight, the Detroit Red Wings
professional hockey team will have
a practice session here. This scrim-
mage should be a "must-see" for all
the Michigan squad, as the Red
Wings can serve as excellent tutors.
Perhaps some of Lowrey's squad will
have the opportunity to get on the
ice with the professionals. This in-
teresting exhibition will be closed to
the public.
Before coming here the Wings re-
leased outright defenseman Rudy Zu-
nich, amateur league graduate from
Calumet who, before the 13-player
limit took effect, was a reserve iecnm-
ber of the Detroit squad.
The Wings got some good news
yesterday when x-ray examination of
an ankle injury suffered by Center
Syd Howe Sunday disclosed no frae-
ture. The Wings are hoping that
Howe will be available for action inj
Toronto on Thursday.

Shaughnessy Candidate
NEW YORK, Nov. 29.-(A')-The
International League at its annual
meeting today put up Frank J.
Shaughnessy, International League
President, as a candidate for presi-
dent of the National Association of
Professional Baseball Leagues, and
voted to "support him unanimously."
The action was the first public
move to oppose the re-election of
William G. Bramham, the incumbent
minor league czar, at the National
Association selections Wednesday.
Also discussed at the meeting was
the forthcoming baseball campaign.
