Michigan's New Year's Day ap-
pearance against USC in the 1948
Rose Bowl game will drop the cur-
tain on the playing career of one
of the Wolverine's best liked line-
men, Bill Pritula.
Not only will Michigan followers
be witnessing the last collegiate
performance of an outstanding
tackle, but they will also bid fare-
well to one of the few remaining
players who have played under
Coach Crisler's new two team unit
and his former teams that relied
on staminia rather than depth in
reserve strength at position.
For, Bill, who is now a senior
in the Engineer School, first
tasted big Nine competition
as a member of the famed
"Seven Oak Posts" of the 1942
squad which among other
achievements gained the last
Michigan victory over a Notre
Having played on this Wolver-
ine team which prided itself on its
ability to play a game without
loss of-time for subsitution, Pri-
tula successfully secured a posi-
tion on Coach Crisler's current
Big Nine Champion team by con-
tinuing to rely on his speed, nat-
ural competitive ability and gen-
eral all around physical condi-
These assets not only paid-off
for Bill, but also gave the entire
Wolverine line a boost that was
appreciated when the team.
went up against opponents in
several games this year that
outweighed the Michigan for-
warcl wall by more than ten
pounds to the man.
Bill Pritula came to Michigan
after playing his high school foot-
ball as a member of the Detroit
Chadsey High School eleven.
Playing, then as now, on the line
Bill managed to turn in many out-
standing performances that won
the praise of many opponents
while playing on one of the lesser
teams in the Detroit Metropolitan
Of all the glory and fame that
has come to Bill as a member of
Michigan's first Western Con-
ference Champions in 12 years,,
only one aspect bothers the big
Wolverine lineman. It seems as
if everyone has come to expect
that as a member of the squad,
Pritula should be able to secure
for his "friends" those greatly
saught after Rose Bowl tickets.

A football game and a boxing
match don't have much in com-
mon. but Joe Soboleski, one of
Michigan's outstanding guards,
has taken more beatings than
A defensive lineman, Joe is in
on almost every play, often at the
bottom of the pile. During each of
the last four games this year an
opponent's foot managed to come
in contact with Joe's head and
temporarily put the lights out.
As a matter of fact he doesn't
remember anything from the be-
ginning of the second quarter un-
til the fourth quarter of the Illi-
Sobolesli hails from Grand
Rapids. He attended Catholic Cen-
tral High School there and was
quarterback for three years. He
was captain in his senior year but
played only three games because
of a knee itijury. After graduation
he spent 18 months in the Navy, 8
of these overseas in the Pacific
Theatre as a pharmacisit's mate.
Joe got his first experience
playing guard while he was at
Great Lakes waiting for this dis-
charge. He went out for football
there and played in three games
Deciding that he preferred
guard to quarterback, Soboleski
aimed for that position when he
arrived at Michigan in time for
the 1945 season. He was one of
the outstanding players on the
freshman team of that year and
has developed into a fine defen-
A physical education major, he
hopes to play a little professional
football and then go into coach-
ing. He also thinks he might get a
degree in pharmacy, which he
learned in the Navy. He's a senior
but has one more year of eligi-
bility, a thing the coaching staff
is, no doubt, very thankful for.
