Two'M'Gridders Plan
Reunion with Shipmates

Williams-Greene, Newman-Goosers,
Phi Delt-Betas, Tangle in Final Battles

By BEV BUSSEY
(Sports Feature Editor)
"Until we meet once more" . .
The band in a distant corner of
Ferry Field was warming up for
the Navy invasion. Strains of
Anchors Aweigh drifted over to the
section of the field where the team
was practicing.
"Until we meet once more"
became more than just the lyrics
of a fight song to two Wolver-
ines. To Bill Bartlett and Bob
Van Summern, it will be the
sign of a reunion with half the
Middie outfit this Saturday.
Two years ago the Michigan duo
were shotguns in the Navy attack.
They teamed with, guys who are
winding up their sea-going foot-
ball career this season, guys like
Pistol Pete Williams, Reaves Bay-
singer, Scott Emerson and Bill
Hawkins.
Van Summern's relations go
back even farther. It started at
'St. Mary's pre-flight where Van
Summern. took his Navy air
corps training. Commanding of-
ficer of the group happened to
be a former Kansas man, George
Sauer.
"It's a funny coincidence
running into him (Sauer) again
after all this time," Van Summern
said. "We had a lot of competi-
tive sports among the different
battalions - basketball, boxing-
but I never played too much foot-
ball for Sauer," he added.
He seemed to like Van Sum-
mern 's fight and figured the sailor
boy could do a lot for Kansas'
I-M Opens Sport
ProgramTonight
The Intramural Building's co-
recreational sport program is
slated to open tonight. Students
and faculty are invited by I-M of-
ficials to participate in the varied
activities of the building between
7:30 and 10:30.
The program will continue
through the remainder of the year.

football future. Another coach of
some renown, Frank Leahy,
thought the Irish could use him,
too. He called heads, and Van
Summern went to Notre Dame.
An appointment to Annapolis
the following season found Van
Summern joining forces with
plebes Al McCully, fullback, and
Bill Hawkins, now Navy's lead-
ing offensive performer.
He won a first string halfback
berth, playing both offense and
defense for Tom Hamilton, Navy's
head mentor in '46.
Bill Bartlett directed the
Middie attack until he was side
lined in the middle of the sea-
son because of a leg injury.
Unfortunately, Bartlett didn't
get into the Army game, when
Navy almost upset them. Van
Summern saw only limited service
on defense for he had been hurt
the week before.
Both are "ship-shape" for the
Michigan-Navy game, however,
and the strains of "til we meet
once more" may be for the visitors.
just another "Sauer" note.
Soccer Pulls
Sunday Crowds
The International Soccer League
is drawing large crowds to their
Sunday afternoon contests. The
games are played between 1 p.m.
and 5 at the practice field adjac-
ent to the Michigan Stadium.
There are five teams in the
league: Turks, South Americans,
Chinese, Indians and Europeans.
The Turks, who came out on top
last year, have proved their pro-
ficiency at the sport again this
season, although only two games
have been played by each team.
The Turks lead the league with
two victories as against no losses,
but the South Americans and the
Chinese also show with each
team breaking even in their two
contests.

Independent .,..
By CLARKE STEVENSON
In the Independent Touch Foot-
ball League the playoffs are com-
plete except for that all-important
first place game which has been
postponed until some future date.
The Newman Club and the
Cross-country running will
come into the spotlight again
on Thursday, Nov. 11. The In-
dividual All - Campus Cross-
Country Run will start at 5:15
on this date.
Goosers are the teams that will
fight it out sometime next week
for the championship.
TO REACH the semi-finals The
Newman Club defeated the Rob-
ert Owen Co-op by a score of
twenty to seven. The Goosers
downed the Mis-Fits 19-0.
If the Newman Club can get a
victory over the powerful Goos-
ers it will give them a big edge
over their most formidable riv-
als, the Mis-Fits.
Last Year's Independent Cham-
pions, the Mis-fits, emerged at
the top with 1010 points while the
Newman Club were second with
992 points.
* * *
SO FAR the Newmans have a
total of 141 points and if they take
the football championship it will
give them 150 more points.
It is much too early in the
season to make any accurate
speculations but it looks like the
Newmans are really out for that
championship.
The second place winners, Mich-
igan Christian Fellowship beat the
Dodgers in the quarter finals 7-0
and went on to defeat the Hill-
toppers 15-0.

THE HILLTOPPERS downed

place in the semi-finals.

reach the final playoffs. The Go
Betweens piled up more yardage
to beat the Phi Rho Sigma's, 1-0,
in the semi-finals.
The Lawyers Club swung into
second place when they defeated

semi-finals Phi Delta Phi was

It's Williams vs. Greene for the

Championship.

ToughRace, Mom
The Newman Club swept the first five places of the Indepen-
dent Cross Country Meet last week.
Their victory was an easy one, however, because they were the
only entrants in the contest.
This is the first cross country meet ever held by the inde-
pendents and shows promise of stimulating interest in a sport
which up to now was ignored entirely.
