THE MIC IGAN DAILY
WALLOW, NOT HOLLOW, WIN.
Mud Lends Humor to Final Midget Game
A last look at the lightweights
before King Football abdicates
for another year:
Playing conditions for Friday's
game with Ohio State were -out of
this world ... the game was played
on the varsity practice field and
the only grass in evidence was
along the sidelines . . . . to make
matters worse a heavy rain fell
during the second half . . . . the
sun was out fifteen minutes after
the game ended.

PLAYERS. WERE unrecogniza-
ble by halftime which opened the
Bulldogs Tangle with Falcons
For Community House Funds
By SY SONKIN
The "kids" of Ann Arbor will
be the beneficiaries of the Wines
Field encounter between the Ann
Arbor Bulldogs and the Flint Fal-
cons at 10:30 Thursday morning.
BOTH SQUADS are members
of the Michigan Amateur Foot-
ball League. Forrest Evashevski,
one of the Wolverines' great quar-
terbacks and a teammate of Tom
Harmon, is commissioner of the.
All the money taken in at the
game will be turned over to a fund
for an Ann Arbor Community
House, and, more specifically, a
swimming pool for the town. Ann
Arbor has none at present.
NEITHER TEAM has won a
game in five starts in this rough
league, and, since this is the final
contest for both, this will ob-
viously be a fight to stay out of
the cellar, and the game should
'be well worth the admission of one
dollar for adults and fifty cents
Wolverine swimming coach Matt
Mann has put himself on the rec-
ord as squarely behind the proj-
"We need a community house
in this town so badly," he said.
"The kids have no place to go.

'YOU UNIVERSITY students
have your fraternity houses and
your Union, but they have noth-
ing. About the only thing they
can do is to go to a beer parlor or
a pool hall, and we don't want
that, de we?"
So you students that don't have
much to do come Thanksgiving
morning, go down to Wines Field.
Plunk down your buck, and enjoy
yourself at what promises to be a
pretty good football game - and
give the boys and girls in this
town a break at the same time.
THIS IS IT!
you've been asking for!
way for plenty of laughs . . . . an
Ohio halfback started to cut be-
hind his interference and dis-
covered too late that the "inter-
ference" was from Michigan ...
Wolverine quarterback Jemr r y
Burns tossed a perfect pass to a
surprised Buckeye who was im-
mediately swarmed upon by both
teams . . . . Burns pulled the best
crack of the day when substitute
quarterback George Sipp asked
him how he was receiving the
muddy ball from center .
Burns' answer was to the point
. I'm not."
Dubious honor of being the
muddiest player on the field
went to guard Jere Ogle ... he
was closely pressed by tackle
Barry Breakey but a white spot
was discovered under Breakey's
left eye .....Capt. Don O'Con-
nell got his shower early ... .
his teammates tossed him in
the showers uniform and all in
celebration of another tie for
the lightweight championship
S. .. the mud-caked O'Connell
didn't object too strenuously.
Only four members of this year's
squad will be lost by graduation
DICK HURST, Night Editor
.. Breakey and end Jim Costa
are the only starters to go . . .
UNLESS THERE is a sudden
change of heart in the front of-
fices the lightweights will receive
the same awards they got last sea-
son . . . . that means a plain blue
sweater with a yellow stripe on
the left sleeve and a 50 -over the
stripe . . . . seems kind of silly ....
the least they can do is give the
midgets a 150 over the stripe.
Lightweight football is in a
precarious position at Ohio State
. . . . the Buckeyes are losing
their coach and are hesitant
about °hiring another . . . . they
haven't had much in the way of
material either .... Athletic Di-
rector Dick Larkins isn't say-
ing anything right now . . . .
The Western Conference brand
of lightweight football gained pres-
tige last Saturday when Illinois
met Navy . . . . the middies won
13-6 but the easterners were
thought to be far superior ...
150-pound football has been well
established in that section for sev-

team were: James Armelogos, Da-

FOR PROVIDING US WITH OUR BASIC WANTS DURING THE PAST YEAR. HOW-
EVER, CAN WE AT THIS TIME BE COMPLACENT AND SATISFIED? CERTAINLY
NOT! 'THANKSGIVING IS NO TIME TO REFLECT WITH QUIET SELF-SATISFAC-
TION UPON OUR MATERIAL POSSESSIONS AND OUR APPETITES.

AS GOOD A TIME AS ANY TO REMEMBER THAT WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE TO
HELP A DISTRESSED NEIGHBOR, TO ENJOY THE BLESSINGS OF USEFUL WORK,
TO GIVE A FRIENDLY WORD TO THE PASSERBY, TO TAKE HAPPINESS IN A
BABY'S SMILE OR A MOTHER'S COMFORTING PRESENCE, TO REMEMBER THAT
LIFE IS A JOURNEY, NOT A GOAL, AND FROM THE DEPTHS OF OUR HEARTS
WE GIVE THANKS THAT, AMERICA BEING A LAND OF FREE ENTERPRISE, WE
CAN BE OF SERVICE TO OTHERS - FOR SERVICE IS THE RENT WE PAY FOR
THE SPACE WE OCCUPY ON EARTH.
