DAILY DOUBLE
by pres holmes, sports co-editor

OPEN LETTER to armchair quarterbacks and grandstand coaches:
Sirs, and Madams:
IT IS MY solemn duty to call to your attention some data recently
released, which, without a doubt, will cause you much discomfort and
evoke cries of indignation.
I am not, and do not pretend to be, an iconoclast, yet it is my
unfortunate duty to shatter an image-to dispell a myth which
you have lived by and worshipped these many years that you have
been loyal football enthusiasts.
A Football players are NOT stupid. They are NOT incapable of exer-
cising their mental, along with their physical, abilities. They are NOT
uncivilized yokels, unearthed in the wilds of the hill country, who are
wearing shoes for the first time when they don a pair of cleats.
AT LEAST no such players exist here at Michigan. Last week the
fall semester grades of the 38 lettermen who played on the 1949
, Wolverine Western Conference Championship team were released.
Let me assure you that they were amazing, more than enough
to make one realize that if the football team wasn't around, this-
university's scholastic average would drop, rather than rise.
The overall, composite, average of these 38 gridders was an en-
viable 2.75, considerably higher than the 2.56 average which the total
student body possesses.
OUT OF A TOTAL of 551 classroom hours of work carried, only
21 hours were grades lower than C, and more than four times this num-
ber, 94, received A's. The B's were the most plentiful, 253 hours-worth,
A and 182 hours of straight C work was- done.
Don't try to wiggle out of this one by saying that the boys
were taking "snap" courses. There were 16 men in the Lit school,
1 10 in education, six in engineering, three in Med school, two in
Bus Ad, and one architect - a pretty fair cross-section.
Two fullbacks stood as top men on the scholastic totem-pole. Tom
Peterson and Ralph Straffon, both in Med school, hauled down straight
A averages during the fall campaign. Dick Kempthorn, Don Dufek,
Jack Powers, Bill Bartlett, Harry Allis, Ozzie Clark, and George Suth-
erland rated B averages or better.
The list goes on, but you should be ready to admit defeat by now.
' There are no Eino Filliikkiinnenn's at Michigan. Sorry to be so rough
on you, but, nowadays, a man's gotta be intelligent to play ball for

All-Campus Championship
Boxing Bouts Top Program

By JERRY FANGER
The entire Intramural Building
will be thrown open tonight as 500
participants will be viewed by
close to 5,000 spectators in the 16-
sport program at the 19th annual
I-M Open House.
Messers. Earl Riskey and Rod
Grambeau have announced that
there will be continuous activity
from 7 till 10 p.m.
* * *
THERE WILL be exhibitions in
wrestling, gymnastics, volleyball,
weight lifting, tennis, badminton,
codeball, handball, paddleball,
squash, fencing, and archery.
There will also be finals in
basketball, swimming, and wa-
terpolo.
The All-Campus championship
boxing bouts will highlight the
evenings activities. Five bouts are
scheduled, with Jim Kanemoto in
the spotlight as he matches wits
with Ed Cox in the 145 pound
class. Kanemoto won the 135
pound division last year, and re-
ceived the Orwick-Setomer tro-
phy for his efforts.
THERE WILL BE considerable
interest in the codeball exhibitions
in which several varsity lettermen
will participate. Al Wistert and
Carl Kreger will match feet and
brains with ChuckOrtmann and
Harry Allis in a game that com-
bines soccer with handball.
Leo VanderKuy nad Alex Con-
ja will face Jack Hudnut and
Don Domke in another doubles
codeball match. John Gregory
meets Harry Jokela in the only
singles exhibition.
Lazy Aces will oppose the Big
Reds in the finals of the indepen-
dent basketball league. Phi Kap-
pa Psi meets Chi Psi in the fra-
ternity finals, and Fletcher Hall
faces Chicago House in the dor-
mitory finals.

IN BETWEEN the basketball1
games the varsity gymnasts will
put on exhibitions on the flying
rings and the trampoline.
Wrestling and weight-lifting,
have always been feature at-
tractions. Tom Kristofferson,
175 pound fraternity wrestling
champion, will meet B o b
Schmunk, residence hall champ
in the same weight division, in
the feature bill on the card.
The Faculty sends the Aero-
engineers against Adams House
in a volleyball match. The Chinese
students, International Center
champions, face the independent
champs, the Hawaiians. Sigma Phi
Epsilon, fraternity champs, plays
Phi Delta Phi, pro-fraternity
leader, in the featured volleyball
game.
EARLY IN the evening tennis
will hold the spotlight with the
All-Campus singles championship
The Senior Lifesavfng class
will meet on Thursday instead
of Wednesday, as previously an-
nounced.
--Jack Redd
match between Clyde House and
Frani Tillery. Afterwards, Coachj
Bill Murphy will send his varsity
players onto the hardwoods.

EDITOR'S NOTE-This is the last in
a series of articles on the NCAA Swim-
ming Championships to be held
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of
this week at Columbus, Ohio.)
Yale's Bulldogs, perennial pow-
er in the East, will bring a fairly
strong team to the corn country
this week in hopes of bettering
last year's fourth place in the
NCAA competition.
The sons of old Eli have a num-
ber of experienced performers on
hand, headed by junior Dick Blum,
who set an Eastern Intercollegiate
record last week in the 440-yard
free style. Blum's mark was 4:48.6.
He's also been clocked in 2:09.5 for
the 220.
BACK OF BLUM in the dist-
ances the Bulldogs have Bill Farn-
sworth, who's turned in a 4:52.6
for the 440 and a 2:10.7 for the
220. Both of these swimmers have
bettered the winning Big Ten time
in the furlong, Matt Mann III's
2:11.4.
The Bulldog captain, Al Rat-
kiewich, figures to threaten an
Ohio State dominance in the
backstroke events. Ratkiewich
toured the 150-yard, distance in
1:34.8 earliar this season.
And wily Coach Bob Kiphuth
can call on Blum, Ray Reid, and
Larry Munson in the dashes and
relays and expect creditable per-

formances. All have bettered 52.5
in the 100 and 23.4 in the 50, with
Reid's 51.5 in the century tops
for the threesome.
ALTHOUGH the Bulldogs don't
figure to take the top spot this
year, they could well adopt the old
Brooklyn Dodger slogan -- "Wait
till next year." Reason for this is
that the Easterners have one of
the strongest groups of freshmen
in the school's history.
Among the frosh standouts is
John Marshall, Australian who
cracked the world mark in the
440-yard free style with a 4:32.1
clocking, and James McLane,
the young Olympic 1500-meter
champ.
So Kiphuth will be viewing this
year's meet as a mere preview of
things to come. The Yale squad

should nevertheless be troublesome
to all contenders for the NCAA
crown.
EYEING BOTH the Bulldogs
and the defending champion Ohio
State Buckeyes warily, Michigan's
contingent embarks for Columbus
today and tomorrow in quest of
their seventh NCAA crown.
For the Maize and Blue there
are four men who will be swim-
ming their last intercollegiate
meet. Although they will appear
in the National AAU's next week,
Captain Matt Mann III, Gus Stag-
er, Charlie Moss, and Dave Tittle
have exhausted their collegiate eli-
gibility.
Rounding out the crew for Coach
Matt Mann are Dave Neisch, Dick
Martin, Bernie Kahn, John Davies,
Stew Elliott, George Eyster and
Jim Hartman.

Michigan should come out at
least one notch better than last
year in the Western Conference
gymnastics meet at Iowa City this
Saturday.
That seems to be the consensus
of campus followers of the sport.
Although a small vocal minority
definitely is laying its money on
the Wolverines, more astute ob-
servers feel that the powerful ag-
gregation from the University of
Illinois gets the nod.
* * *
ALMOST ALL gymnastics boost-
ers here feel that the Wolverines
will do better than last year when
they finished third behind Min-
nesota, 1949 team champion, and
the Illini.
Although every team, with the
exception of Michigan State, will
have an entry in the twentieth
annual Big Ten championships,
only Michigan, Minnesota and

Illinois are conceded chances to
nab the team crown.
Minnesota has won the honors
in the two post-war meets, but it
is generally felt that the era "of
Gopher domination is past.
AT LEAST AS far as Coach
Newt Loken is concerned the team
to beat is Illinois. The Wolverines
hold a decision over the Gophers
in dual meet competition, 52-44.
The Lokenmen will get one
final workout this evening at the
Intramural Open House, where
they will put on an exhibition
between halves of the IM baslet-
ball playoffs. Tomorrow, they
will entrain for Iowa, arriving in
time to get a good day's rest be-
fore the fireworks start Satur-
day morning.

scoring published in yesterday's'
