Twelve Letters

By PRES HOLMES
For the first-and probably the
last-time in Michigan's 83-year
athletic history one man has won
twelve letters in varsity competi-
tion.
Blond-haired Pete. Elliott, fa-
miliar to Wolverine fans on the
gridiron, the hardwoods. and the
golf links, attains the ultimate in
zebra-armed letter sweaters this
spring as his total reaches an even
dozen when he receives his goh
letter.
THIS HISTORY-MAKING cir-
cumstance was made possible
when the officials of the Western
Conference relaxed the ban on
freshmen competing in varsity
sports during the war. Pete played
football, basketball, and golf in
the 1945-46 season, which was the
last year freshmen were eligible
for varsity competition, and pur-
sued these same three sports
throughout his college career.
Unless similar and/or as un-
usual circumstances arise again,
which allow a man to compete
in his first year, it will be vir-
tually impossible for a man to
ever repeat this feat. Four let-
ters a year seems hardly feasi-
ble.
This accomplishment, as phe-
nominal as it may seem, hardly
fazes the Elliott family. To them
it's just a matter of course, their,

boys have been making sports athletic circles began at the
headlines for over a decade. Bloomington High School in Illi-'

12-LETTER MAN-Pete Elliott is shown above in poses familiar
to Wolverine sports fans who have witnessed his history making
progress. From left to right, golf, football, and basketball. Before
Pete came along eight Michigan men were high in number of let-
ters won with nine each.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

later than noon, June G. Grades
received after that time may defer
the student's graduation until a
later date.
Recommendations for Depart-
mental Honors: Teaching depart-
ments wishing to recommend ten-
tative June graduates from the
College of Literature, Science, and
the Arts, and the School of Edu-
cation for departmental honors
should recommend such students

(Continued from Page 5)
lege of Literature, Science, and
the Arts, School of Education,
School of Music, School of Public
Health:

Students are advised notto re-
quest grades of I or X in June.
When such grades are absolutely,
imperative, the work must be made
up in time to allow your instructor'
to report the make-up grade not

football, basketball, and baseball
teams for a span of ten years.
The war, of course, interrupt-
ed somewhat the flow of the
clan throughout college, but
Pete and "Bump", who is two
years alder than his notable
brother and now coaching at
Oregon State, worked together
on the Wolverine grid squads
of 1946 and '47.
Pete started here at Michigan in
the summer of 1945, and this ulti-
mately resulted in his switching
from baseball-the spring sport he
had followed all through high
school to golf. He had played golf
for many years but never in school
competition. When the annual
Trueblood tournament came up
just before the fall term Pete en-
tered and won the cup.
* * *
WHEN THE SPRING of '46
rolled around he made up his
mind completely to concentrate on
golf. As he expressed it, "I want-
ed a change from going down to
Ferry Field and the Field House
every afternoon."
Another factor, which is prac-
tically as important and cer-
tainly a necessary element in his
reachingthis mark,is that he
has never had a serious injury
throughout his entire college ca-
reer. The 22-year-old athlete
has had minor bruises, of course,
in a letter sent to the Registrars
Office, 1513 Administration Build-
ing, by noon of June 1.
All students who expect to be-
come candidates for the Teacher's
Certificate in February, June, or
August, 1950, should call for an
application form at the office ofi
the School of Education, 1437
U.E.S. Application forms should be
filled in and returned to the
School of Education by June 4.

thSetomer's independents won
the I-M softball crown yester-

day by defeating the Phys-Eds
3-2.

but none were serious enough to
prevent him from competing in
the next game.
As far as future plans are con-
cerned, Pete still has several irons
in the fire, the major ones being
coaching or a shot at business.
But regardless of what he even-
tually winds up dcing, when Pete
Elliott graduates this spring it will
be the end of a great epoch in the
history of Michigan athletics.
