Over Sophs*..

an unusual twist to the rules of the
The sophomores scored their only
points in the leapfrog event, beating
two freshman teams in this meet by
a quick break-away to the goal. The
sophs missed winning in the shuttle
relays, horse and rider technique,
by a fraction of a step.
With all the freshmen on one end
against the few sopiomores on the
other, the frosh easily won the Tug
of War contest, two out of three,
even though the soph end man had
tied the heavy rope around himself
for added weight. Needless to say,
he was dragged.
A dozen quietly cheering spectators
sat on the sidelines, moving only
when the yelling teams forgot about
the out-of-bounds markers. Dr. War-
ren Forsythe was on hand, but his
professional services were not uti-
Director of the games, Dick Mixer
of the Union, spent an enjoyable
afternoon watching goal lines and

to scale the cliff to surrender to ad-
vancing Marines, they were shot
down by other Jap soldiers.
Although many Japanese feared
death less than surrender, the reason
for their reluctance to choose the
.-.lxec was given by one civilian sev-
eral days after Lt. Graham's group
had broadcast their appeal. The
Japanese could not understand why
the Marines went to such trouble to
rescue their enemies. They could not
understand the humanitarian atti-
tude of the Americans, which, accor-
ding to Lt. Graham, was the chief
reason for saving Japanese lives. An-
other, he writes, was the danger of
leaving a few thousand potential
Japanese snipers still on the loose
in one section of the island.
A native of Flint, Lt. Graham
graduated the College of Architec-
ture and Design in 1942. He was a
member of the University Band
and the art staff of the Michigan-
ensian. After completing the Navy's
language training course at Colo-
rado University, he was commis-
sioned a lieutenant in the Marine
Corps. At present he is preparing
another article on the operation at
Iwo Jima, in which he took part.
