Coach H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler an-
nounced yesterday the names of 31
Michigan football players winning
major letters for the 1944 football
season and 11 gridders who received
secondary awards.
Prominent on the list was fullback
Don Lund who, by winning his third
football letter in as many seasons of
competition, entered the final stretch
in his campaign to join the select
circle of Michigan's nine-lettermen.

probably annex a third in each sport
before graduation.

inexperience of the Wolverine squad
which battled for the Western Con-

"First man to the tape gets the
drumstick" . . . This may well be thet
cry this afternoon when the Wolver-i
ine track squad, which will be divided
into four teams, runs cross-country
with a 30 pound turkey as the win-
ners' prize.
The three and a half mile jaunt
which will start and end at the
Ferry Field track, is slated to begin
at 5:15 p. m. and because various
sororities on campus are sponsoring
the individual teams, much interest
has been aroused among the fairer
The four teams are captained by
Dick Barnard, whose boys will be
running under the sponsorship of the
Delta Gamma sorority, Bob Hume,
representing Kappa Alpha Theta,
Walt Fairservis, under the colors of
Pi Beta Phi, and Ross Willard whose
rooters will be from Gamma Phi Beta.

If past performances are any in-
dication, the Maize and Blue mermen
should have no trouble in capturing
the Conference title again, as Mi-
chigan has long been recognized as
the outstanding swimming school in
the country and its teams, under the
tutelage of Coach Matt Mann, have
walked off with 14 Big Ten cham-
pionships in the last 20 years.
During this time the tankmen have
amassed a total of 146 victories,
while losing only 15 meets and tying
three, giving them the winning per-
centage rating of .897.
The outlook is particularly bright'
this year because of the return of
five lettermen, Mert Chu'rch, Chuck
Fries, Heini Kessler, Gordon Pul-
ford, and Bill Kogan. These stalwarts,
stars last season, are again expected
to turn in championship perform-
ances and aid immeasurably in keep-
ing the Conference crown at Michi-
Regain Lost Title
The Wolverines went through con-
ference competition undefeated last
season to regain the title lost to
Ohio State in 1943. The mermen
suffered two defeats, however, both
at the hands of a powerful Great
Lakes'team, composed of college stars
from all over the country and led by
Bill Smith, the fastest sprinter in the
United States.
Outside of these two, losses, the
Mariners gave brilliant performances

in all other competition. Michigan's
