Harmon Credits
Survival to His
Footbafll Days
Take it from First Lieut. Tom Har-
man, football training helps.
Back home on a brief leave for the
first time since Christmas, 1942, the
former Michigan All-American of
1939 and 1940 is convinced that it was
his gridiron and general athletic
training that made possible his sur-
vival of two airplane crashes in the
past year.
"I'll argue with anyone who says
sports should be eliminated now or at
any time," declared Harmon upon
his return here. "It is principally be-
cause of their earlier athletic train-
ing that our pilots are better than
those turned out by Germany and
Japan. They have learned early what
it means to fight out of a tough spot
and, boy, up there in the air the chips
are really clown."
Men Turn to Sports
"On every fighting front where I
have been our men have always turn-
ed immediately to sports for recrea-
tion and relaxation whenever they
had the opportunity and have played
everything for which they had equip-
ment. In China we had organized
leagues in basketball, baseball, and
volleyball and even had competition
in basketball with Chinese teams.
"To eliminate sports back home
would be to destroy the basis of that
interest and a great means of train-
ing which I am mighty thankful I
had. Without my years of football
and the hard knocks I received, I
never could have lived through the
South Americanjutngle last sprint;,
let alone get back to my China'base
