Sigma Chi, Michigan House!
Take First Place Trophies


Art Walker, Star Tackle,
Chosen 'Player of Week'

Davis Leads Club
In 32-0 Slaughter
Sparked by the sterling Jerry
Davis-Paul Fancher combination,
Sigma Chi romped over Phi Delta
Theta in a shutout 32-0 football
victory yesterday, thereby win-
ning the social fraternity gridiron
crown for 1952.
Davis, who completed 14 out of
22 passes and accounted for 164
yards for the winners, tossed con-
sistently accurate passes to Fan-
Cher, Bob Littleson, Jim Young
and Norm Canty.
* * *
THE STRAW that seemingly
br6ke the camel's back came mid-
A way in the first quarter, when
Young, captain of Sigma Chi, in-
tercepted a Phi Delt pass by Gil
Sabuco to run the ball back 70
yards for the first Sigma Chi
touchdown. The extra marker was
made on a toss from Davis to
The Phi Delts tried to come
back at the beginning of the
second quarter with Sabuco
completing two passes to Jan
Wegenka, but the passes went
for no gain and the ball was
lost to Sigma Chi.
Davis began the next touchdown
march with a 40-yard aerial to
Littleson, which put Sigma Chi on
the Phi Delta Theta 21-yard line.
Another toss from Davis to Young,
good for 15 yards, left only 6 yards
to go to paydirt. Davis took care of
this by running around left end
for 5 more yards, and then pass-
ing to Littleson in the end zone.
IN THE SECOND half Sigma
Chi kicked off to Phi Delt Sabuco,
who, after an .incomplete pass,
promptly lost the ball again on an
interception by Canty. Davis ran
for 23 yards in two plays to give
Sigma Chi a first down, on the Phi
Delta 37. Then a Fancher to Lit-
tlesson toss yielded the third Sig-
ma Chi tally.
In the last quarter Davis
passed first to Young, then to
Canty for 30 yards, and Canty
ran the ball for 25 more. A toss
from Davis to Fancher put the
ball on the one-yard line, and
Davis plunged over for another
Sigma Chi marker. The extra
point was made on a Davis to
Young aerial,
Davis continued his passing con-
nections late in the fourth stanza
to chalk up the last six points for
the winners, as Young caught the
last toss in the end zone.
s s ,
A frantic Phi Delt drive in the
last minutes of the game, led by
Sabuco, brought them to the Sig-
ma Chi 25. The drive was halted
when Sabuco's heave to Duke
' Layland was knocked down by Da-
vis in the last seconds.
Sigma Chi counted for only four
first downs in the game, with the
Phi Delts not getting any, but
they were placed in the right
spots. There were 35 yards in
penalties stepped off by the offi-
cials, with Sigma Chi receiving
30 yards worth.

Ewart to Trumbell
Pass Nets Victory
Michigan House, led by Dale
Ewart and Wimp Trumbell,
downed Strauss' gridders last
night, 7-0, to snare I-M cham-
pionship honors among the resi-
dence halls.
Late in the first quarter Ray
Tam of Michigan House faded
back to his own 33 yard line and
heaved a long pass to Jim Gilmore
on the Strauss 24. A short pass
then brought the ball up to the
East Quaders' 22 at the end of
the initial period.
Starting the second stanza, two
running plays failed to gain but
then Dale Ewart flipped a short
pass to Wimp Trumbell, who
sprinted the remaining distance to
pay-dirt and a 6-0 lead, Ewart
again threw for the extra-point,
this time to Jim Gilmore.
Michigan opened the second
half by booting into the Strauss
end zone. The ball was brought
out to the 20, however, as the
East Quaders opened up their
offensive attack. A short pass
moved the ball up to their own
31 yard line, but on the next
play a long pass to the Michigan
35 was nullified by a 15 yard
penalty for illegal use of the
hands and the ball was set back
to the Strauss 14 yard line.
The West Quad gridders took
over at that point on their own
38. Two plays later, however, they
found themselves back on the 24
yard line chiefly because of a 15
yard rule Infraction. Then Strauss'
Vince Schoek intercepted a long
Ewart pass and brought the ball
up to the Michigan 40 before be-
ing tagged.
* * *
A SHORT PASS from Phil Ja-
cobus to Dave Travis advanced the
pig-skin to the 35 yard line. Ja-
cobus then faded back, flipped a
basketball toss to Adam Roth, and
raced down the field to take
Roth's pass on the Michigan 7
yard line as the horn ending the
third quarter sounded.
Knocking on the Michigan
goal line with four plays to push
over, Strauss attempted a short
pass which was knocked down.
It then clicked on a short toss
to the 5 yard line. Jacobus
sprinted toward his own right
side, eluded several West Quad
defenders, and snaked his way
up to the Michigan one yard
line before being stopped. At
this point the shaken Michigan
defense tightened up as a
Strauss pass fell far out of the
reach of its intended receiver.
Michigan then punted to its own
26, but the Strauss attack was
again halted, as Trumbell inter-
cepted a Jacobus pass on his own
14 yard marker. That was the ball
game as far as the boys from East
Quad were concerned, as time ran
out with them on the short end
of a 7-0 score.

One of the unsung stars of the
Wolverine defensive line received
the plaudits of an appreciative
crowd Saturday afternoon and also
the designation as Michigan Play-
er of the Week by members of the
fourth estate who saw Michigan's
49-7 rout of Cornell.
Art Walker, playing his best
game of an already personally suc-
cessful season, was in a large meas-
ure responsible for Cornell's poor
total of only 94 yards gained
through the air and on the ground.

Wolverine Hoopsters Hustling
To Perfect Fast Break Style

Hockey fans like fast action;
Michigan basketball fans will get
a dose of the same when the Wol-
verines open their 1952-53 cam-
paign against Marquette on De-
cember 1.
At least that's the way it looks
every time you drop down to a
Yost Field House practice session.
Coach Bill Perigo has his charges
running like a pack of hungry
coyotes under a full moon.
* * *
dicts got a glimpse of the fever-
ish Maize and Blue pace Monday
night, when Perigo unveiled the
Michigan squad in an exhibition
of hoop fundamentals.
Ten of the 16 Wolverines cur-
rently on the varsity unit made
an 80-mile trek to the Port Hu-
ron basketball clinic where the
new rule changes and a sam-
pling of the Michigan fast
break were displayed to a crowd
of high school players, coaches
and fans.
With the opening jump of Peri-'
go's maiden year in Ann Arbor
less than three weeks away, the
Michigan mentor maintains an
optimistic viewpoint of the switch'
to firehouse ball.
* * t
"TIME WILL tell," he says,
adding that "it will take a while
for boys who have been accus-
tomed to a slow-moving type of
play to make the necessary shift."
In yesterday's action, it was
evident that Perigo is groom-
ing his hoopsters into a hustling,
scrapping, go-go outfit.
Forwards Milt Mead and John
Codwell, center Paul Groffsky, and
guards Ray Pavichevich and Don
Eaddy looked extremely sharp as
they worked against a zone de-
fense thrown up by the cream of
the freshman squad.
* * *
ONLY CAUSE for alarm in the
Wolverine camp are a few minor
injuries that are still lingering.
Codwell is hampered by a se-
verely strained leg muscle,
which earlier caused him to miss
two weeks of practice, but this
fails to take the gloss off his
deft one-hand shot and heads-
up floor game.

Center Leo Schlicht has been
slowed down by too much weight-
lifting. Schlicht says the girls like
his muscles, but Perigo has ruled
out any more dumbbells for "Tar-

WOLVERINE rooters will get a
sneak preview of their favorites
on Tuesday, November 25, when
the varsity tangles with Coach
Dave Strack's frosh contingent.

conference play this year, so
this promises to be one of the
rookies' few opportunities to
strut their stuff against the big
Strack's five scrimmaged the
second string varsity combine yes-
terday and more than held its own.
A couple of bright prospects from
Chicago and points East have bol-
stered Michigan's best first-year
crop in a few seasons.
(Continued from Page 1)
Michigan's opening game with
Michigan State was sold out and
permission was obtained to tele-
vise it on a Detroit station in
place of the scheduled Princeton-
Columbia telecast.
"You make suckers out of the
97,000 fans who paid money for
tickets at our game," said Fritz.
"If they hadn't paid the money,
the fans at home couldn't have
seen the game on TV free of cost.
"You make suckers out of the
radio people who have obtained
sponsors in the belief that the
game will not be televised.
"And in addition, the substitu-
tion removes our bargaining pow-
er. I think we could have sold the
telecast rights for the Michigan-
Michigan State game for $100,000.
All we got was the regular two-
hour rate of $3,050.
Athletic Director Moose Krause
of Notre Dame, who like Crisler
was attending today's meeting of
the Michigan Football Writers
Association, also recommended
that the NCAA loosen up its re-
striction plan.
Krause came out for more
games than Crisler. Krause want-
ed four games in each of six areas
every Saturday.

THE 200 POUND sophomore
tackle from South Haven annoyed
Guyuga's passer Herb Bool so
much he was only able to com-
plete eight out of twenty passes
for a mere 55 yards gained. On
three occasions the harrassed Mr.
Bool tossed the pigskin into the
arms of Wolverine defenders.
Several times Walker roamed
the Cornell backfield at will,
throwing Big Red runners and
passers for big losses and in gen-
eral foiling the Cornell offen-
sive aspirations.
Walker, at 5' 11', is strong and
agile. His rugged features andl
lightning quickness not only make
him an excellent tackle but a'
good catcher in baseball as well.
His backstopping ability impressed
baseball coach Ray Fisher, but he
quit the diamond sport to report
for spring training.

scribes as Player of the Week for

Whelan, playing his second
game of the season after re-
cuperating from an injury, did
most of the running. His pres-

zest to an otherwise listless Cor-
nell eleven.

halfback had led Cornell to its
only win of the season by tossing
two touchdown passes and scoring
another in the final period against
Columbia University.

gridders yesterday began the se-

Nu Sigs, Newman Club Win
Crowns with 6-0 Triumphs

Nu Sigma Nu won the profes-
sional fraternity league champion-
ship yesterday, defeating the Law{
Club, the defending champion, 6-0
under the lights at Wines Field.
Nu Sigma Nu's opening kickoff
put the ball on the Lawyer's 23"
yard line. The first pass attempt-
ed was almost intercepted and
was a fair indication of what wasr
to come. After losing yardage on}
the second play of the game, the
losers were forced to punt. {
* *' *
NU SIGMA NU took the kick
on the Law Club's 40 and contin-
ued to advance under the leader-
ship of Tom Peterson, who set up
the first touchdown with his ca-
pable running and passing. Peter-
son ran and passed for a first
down after an offside penalty was
issued to 'the doctors. Ralph Staf-
fon raced into the end zone aft-
er grabbing a Peterson pass for
the score. An attempted aerial for
the extra point was knocked down.
The fact that this was the
first time the Law Club had been
scored upon in two seasons
seemed to let the defending
champs down, for they couldn't
seem to come back. They were
forced to kick once again after
a series of incomplete and
knocked down passes.
The Law Club threatened late
in the second quarter with Bob
Cary finding the mark on several
aerials. Cary lateraled to Bill
Reamon who in turn tossed to
Mike Papista on the Nu Sig's
twelve. The advance was stopped
when a lawyer was caught ten
yards behind the line of scrim-
mage. A series of incomplete aeri-
als brought the first half to a

down aerial was ruled incomplete.

R. J. CANNING, Business Training Department ; a r,
Basically; the Company is interviewing and considering
college students for employment without regard to their
draft status. We're not passing over men because they are
eligible for the draft-we're hiring them if they have the
qualifications we want in our employees. We are looking
at the area of employment on a long-range basis, and we
think we are going to carry a perpetual inventory of men
in the armed forces for a considerable period of time. It's
true we lose some men, but we get many back, and with
this in mind our policy is based on personal qualifications;
not on draft eligibility.
J. L. MICHAELSON, General Engineering Laboratory
S;. We are experiencing a growing appreciation of the
importance of an adequate supply of well-trained pro-
fessional people to this country's immediate and future
welfare. Although this situation creates excellent oppor-
tunities for you students for future employment, the
draft may leave you plagued by uncertainty for the
present. But, remember this, we are not only considering
college people for employment entirely for the year 1952.

M. M. BORING, Engineering Services Division ; .
Whether or not you are called into military service
you can reasonably expect to follow your profession for
approximately 30 or 40 years. Your solution to the many
problems, such as this one, which arise during your entire
productive period, will be a lifetime undertaking. A period1
spent serving your country in a military way will represent
a relatively small part of your total professional life. The
way you handle a problem such as this, and the infor-I
mation you get to help in its solution, will determine to'
a large extent your ability to handle future problems.
Now; where does General Electric stand in regard tol
this draft situation? This is our policy. Regardless of1
military status, we desire to interview all students who
are interested in our Company. And, irrespective of mili-
tary status; we will make employment offers to all who
have the qualifications we are looking for, and whom we
would like to have become members of the General
Electric family. If any of these people are called into
service before starting work with us, business conditions
permitting, our offers will be waiting for them when they
return. Those with us before bein called into ei
