ROSS, LYNCH INJURED:
Wolverines To Miss Cross-Country Meet

I

THE WAY THE MOVIES tell it, the average college athlete is sort
of a mystical fellow who spends most of his time riding around
in snazzy convertibles for the benefit of his adoring fans, the majority
of which are prototypes of Marilyn Monroe.
Undoubtedly there are some athletic Utopias where this type
of situation approaches reality, but in the greater number of cases
such a depictment conveys the wrong impression about the campus
muscle men.
Generally speaking, Gus Fan lingers under the impression that
participating in intercollegiate sports is all peaches and cream. He
figures that playing on a team consists of Saturday's game and
Sunday's headlines.
If Gus could spend a week or so associating with anyone "out"
for a varsity sport, he would fast realize that his former impres-
sion was slightly off base. Every Saturday game means hours of
weekday practice, hours that could just as well be spent in study,
in the rack, or in plain loafing.
Then, too, not everybody makes the headlines. For every star
who gets some ink, there are 20 others whose activities go almost
unnoticed by everyone except their teammates, coaches and friends.
Kinyon's Words of Wisdom ..
KINYON, a former Wolverine guard, hit the nail on the
head when he complained: "Nobody knows how much time an
athlete puts into his sport. When I'm out for football I have to prac-
tice at least two hours a day and go to a chalk talk or watch movies
twice a week, so that by the time I get around to studying I can
hardly keep my eyes open."
But football isn't the only time-consumer among the inter-
collegiate athletic pastimes. Track is even more demanding, in-
as-much as it is a year around affair. The cindermen devote
many hours to running 'round and 'round Yost Field House for a
few minutes of competition in an occasional track meet.
Basketball, baseball, hockey-they're all the same. You can't get
by without putting in a whale of a lot of time. The next time you see
Joe Star the center of attraction, don't begrudge him his success.
He's earned it.

By ED SMITH
Michigan will not run in this
mornings Western Conference
cross-country meet in Chicago.
Although the Wolverines do not
run cross-country as a varsity
sport, the harriers usually enter
the Big Ten event as preparation

for the indoor and outdoor track
campaigns.

ham had planned on entering the
Maize and Blue in the meet, but
adverse breaks have made for a
change in his plans.

John Ross and George Lynch
have both come up with minor
leg ailments. It was expected this
pair would run one-two for the
Wolverines.
In order not to risk aggrevating
these injuries the Wolverines are
foregoing competition. It appears
that this will be the smallest Con-
ference meet in many years.

BESIDES Michigan, Ohio State,
Purdue, Illinois, and Northwestern
are definitely not entering teams.
The athletic department ad-
vises all students to hold on to
their season ticket stubs un-
til after this Saturday's Michi-
gan-Purdue game is over, so
that proper seat locations may
be claimed during the game.
-Don Weir
While the Golden Gophers from
Minnesota are doubtful partici-
pants.
At present the Spartans are
rated the favorite to annex the
crown, with Indiana considered
their strongest opposition. Iowa
and Wisconsin, the other two def-
mite starters, are rated as out-
side threats.
Individual honors probably will
fall to Michigan State's Captain
Jim Kepford or Iowa's Ted Wheel-
er. Another Hawkeye, Rich Fergu-
son, is also conceded a chance.

M' Finishes
Final Drills
For Purdue
It was cold on the sidelines, but
the Wolverines were hot on the
field as they ran through their
final drill in preparation for the
all-important clash with Purdue.
COACH BEN Oosterbaan stress-
ed defense as the Wolverines rap-
ped up practice.
The defensive platoon spent
the afternoon facing the second
stringers, who ran out of Pur-
due's version of the "T." Ray
Kenaga, playing Dale Samuels
spot, kept the pass defenders
busy watching Boilermaker pass
paterns.
The spirited Wolverine gridders
were at practice till long after
darkness forced use of the lights.
IN ANTICIPATION of a high
scoring battle, Russ Rescorla and
Dunc McDonald spent part of the
afternoon practicing extra point
placements. They alternated in the
holding and kicking slots.
Bill Billings was occupied in
practicing long booming punts,
while Don Oldham, Lowell Perry,
and Tony Branoff practiced re-
turning them.
As usual there will be no prac-
tice this afternoon. The gridders
will get their customary pre-game
layoff.

BUT WITH the Big Ten
as unpredictable as ever in
the Wolverines, Purdue and
consin could all wind up
4-1-1 slates.

Hold on to your hats (er, hel-
mets)-a three-way deadlock for
the Western Conference grid laur-
els is a distinct mathematical pos-
sibility.
The last time that something
like this happened was in 1931
when Michigan, Northwestern and
Purdue tied for the league lead.

Three Team Tie Possible
In Wild Big Ten Scramble

Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's
title contenders, with a win over
the league-leading Boilermakers
and a tie with erratic Ohior
State, would attain the mnagic
standoff figure and an .800 per-
centage to boot.
If Purdue, in turn, drops one
to the Wolverines and goes on to
take Indiana into camp, it, too,
will boast a 4-1-1 record.
WISCONSIN, to make the three-
way scramble a reality, must lose
to Indiana and tie Minnesota or
vice-versa.
Minnesota is the only other
squad with a shot at the league
bunting. The Golden Gophers
would have to take their final
scrap from Wisconsin to vault
to the top spot.
Speaking of standoffs, two-way
ties have been abundant in con-
ference grid history.
No less than six times have two
teams knotted for the number one
position. The last time this oc-
curred was in 1949 when Ohio
State played even-steven with the
Wolverines and went on to upset
California, 17-14, in the Rose Bowl.

It Will Never Sell...
MVJR. WILFORD SMITH, a Chicago Tribune sportswriter, has come
up with this novel suggestion: "If and when Michigan wins the
Big Ten crown, it should reject the Rose Bowl bid in favor of
neighboring Michigan State."
Smith gives as his reason for the proposal the fact that the
Spartans are the strongest team in the Big Ten and the only
squad that could possibly maintain the conference prestiege in
the bowl this year. He also points out that every contender except
Purdue has been had by a West Coast team and that Michigan
has gone before.
In the event of a tie, this proposal would solve all the problems
of selecting a representative and would prevent bad feelings from
developing among the candidates. But if one team wins it outright,
be it Michigan or anybody else, that team should go west if it so
desires.
Both players and students alike would enjoy a Rose Bowl trip,
and it would be frustrating, to say the least, if an earned journey
were taken away by vote. Besides, State will probably go next year
anyhow.
"Rugby Is A Better Game" ...
RBMEMBER AL JACKSON'S article, "Too Much Football," which
appeared in the Atlantic Monthly a year ago? The former
Michigan guard has come out with another bit entitled, "Rugby Is
A Better Game," which appears in the same magazine. Jackson, now
at Oxford, plays on an English aggregation of some kind.
How about this for going out on a limb? Yours truly predicts
that Michigan will beat Purdue, but will let down after the big win
and get knocked off by Ohio State. It's something to watch for.

YOU'LL CHEER, TOO

campus favorites--the button down
oxford with the perfect-fit, soft-roller
collar, and the fine white pique

Viyella Sport Shirts
by VAN BOVEN
Wonderful, washable Viyells has a texture no
other cloth can touch. Part of the secret lies in
the way Viyells craftsmen spin into one thread
two remarkable fibres-lamb's wool for
warmth and Egyptian cotton for strength.
Another secret of these shirts is the careful
tailoring and new, shorter point collar that looks
equally well worn open or with a tie. We now
have them in a variety of patterns and plain colors.
