GAMES OF THE WEEK
(Consensus (51-17) selections appear in fcaitals)

NEW YEAR'S DAY 1948 proved a glorious way to start a year for
Michigan as the Wolverine football team pushed Southern Cali-
fornia's Trojans all over the hallowed turf of Pasadena's Rose Bowl,
earning in the process a 49-0 victory. And October 18, 1924, was an
equally memorable-though a great deal less successful-day for the
Maize and Blue. For that afternoon saw the Galloping Ghost from
Wheaton, Illinois, the fabulous redhead named Grange, completely
bewildered Michigan as the Illini smashed their way to a 39-14 win.
The one thing the two games and dates have in common is that
they both have earned themselves niches. in Michigan's long and pro-
ductive athletic history. Aptly enough, they are included in a volume
of "71 Memorable Moments in Michigan Sports" scheduled to go on
sale this Saturday.
A product of the collective efforts of the members of the
Michigan chapter of Sigma Delta Chi, professional journalism
fraternity, it was published in the interests of Michigan fans ev-
erywhere. 200 well-known events drawn from the University's rich
athletic heritage were siphoned down to the final total of 71-no
arbitrary number of events was chosen, but instead it was left
to a board of six "selectors," all well-versed in Michigan sports
to make the final decisions.
The select sextet was composed of: H. O. "Fritz" Crisler, Michi-
gan's athletic director and one of the greatest college grid coaches of
modern times; Mill Marsh, long-time sports editor of the Ann Arbor
News; Willie Heston, one of the Wolverines all-time football greats;
T. Halley Tapping, general secretary of Michigan's Alumni Associa-
tion; Phil Diamond, nationally renowned track and field expert; and
Thorne J. Brown, honorary "M" Club member and one of the most en-
thusiastic of all Wolverine sports fans for the past three decades.

You Are There ..
PRODUCED (by the careful selection) was the first volume chron-
icling all of the highlights of Michigan's sports history. This to-
gether with the interesting and engrossing style of writing that brings
the reader right to the scene of action combines to make the paper-
bound Maize and Blue volume well worth its purchase price.
You are right on the scene as the Wolverine hockey team, finding
itself in the underdog role for the first time, captures its third con-
secutive NCAA crown and the fourth in six years by beating Boston
University 14-2, and dumping Minnesota, 7-3. You accompany Ray
Fisher's Wolverine baseball squad as it makes a grand tour of Japan
in the fall of 1929.
All the thrills of winning the Big Ten basketball crown pre-
vade when you read of the Ozzie Cowes-tutored Wolverine hoop
squad blasting Iowa, 51-35, when the Hawkeyes invaded Yost Field
House for the big game that decided the Conference court honors.
The big moments of tennis, golf and wrestling, the story of that
May day in 1935 when the fabulous Jesse Owens ran wild at Ferry
Field, rewriting the nation's track records-they're all there. The
great coaches, Crisler, Yost, Fisher, Mann, Heyliger, Oosterbaan, Keen
and the innumerable others who built the foundation of the Michigan
athletic dynasty-all of them are included-as a matter of fact, there's
hardly a thing that's been omitted.
* * * *
Behind the Scenes ...
OF COURSE, those ivy-encrusted tales that delve "behind the
scenes" of Michigan memorablia have their just place. The birth
of the Little Brown Jug and "The Victors," the meaning of the jaunty
little phrase tacked onto Ohio State's fight song-the "58-6" refrain
dear to all U of M alums, the fabled tale of that one game that Field-
ing Yost wanted most to win, all these and- many others are present.
For the sports devotee, the book is an important addition to his
library-to the follower of Michigan's sports, it is a virtual necessity.
And fittingly enough, the volume, with all of the glory and pageantry
it speaks of, arrives at the time of the most colorful of all events of
the football season-the traditional Homecoming game. There's a
story in the book that every alum returning was a part of-for even
if he wasn't there in person, he forms a parl of the great tradition of
Michigan that the volume emerged from.

pletely outclassed, Tau Epsilon Rho
team in a professional fraternity
first-place playoff game yesterday.
Led by Bob Cary, who tossed four
touchdown passes and Granger
Cook, who caught three of Cary's
T.D. passes and set up a fourth
with a pass interception, the win-
ners dominated the game from the
opening kick-off. Cook's intercep-
tion of a Milt Landau pass was
the most sensational play of the
day.

COOK TOOK the ball out of
the hands of a Tau Epsilon re-
ceiver on his own 10-yard line,
and running like a frightened
deer, scampered to his opponent's
two-yard line before he was
stopped.
In a tightly contested first-
place playoff game, Delta Sigma

undefeated Law Club, 7-0.
