Douglis'Shuffles Along' As Daily Sports Career Ends

If' you were to slash his arm,
Maize and Blue blood would spout
forth, and, chances are, it would
form a neat Block 'M' where it
So do his friends describe The
Michigan Daily's ex-sports editor,
Phil Douglis, '56. The lean, in-
tense Chicagoan, one of the most
dedicated writers to hit the Daily
scene in many years, has just
wrapped up a "furious four years"
of sports writing.
"I doubt if anyone can find a
'Doog' story-from his first I-M
cover to his last column-that
hasn't got a chunk of fire in it."
Steve Heilpern, associate sports
editor-elect, was speaking.
The Doog Exploded
"I'm a 'brother' of Phil's -
known him for three years. If
he's anything, he's fiery. We were
up in the press-box during the
Iowa game this fall, and when
Maentz went across that goal, the
Doog exploded-like a volcano."
Douglis's ability to involve him-
self completely in a story is well,
known to his co-workers on The'
Daily. When the Doog is writing,
his conscious mind is impene-
trable. Hunched over a typewrit-
er, his long fingers beat out stories
and columns with a drum-roll of
sheer ecstacy.
Sometimes, Douglis admits, he
gets carried away. But no one
can doubt the lanky journalism
major's sincerity in what he writes
-especially not after half an
hour's eonversation with him.
Douglis had'three years of sports
writing, plus the editorship of his
Highland Park (Ill.) high school
paper, under his belt when he came
to Michigan.
"I remember the wierdest story
I covered in high school," he says.

'U' Representatives
Attend Conference



Delegates from Michigan's Inter-
Fraternity and Panhellenic Coun-
cil met last weekend at Purdue
University, Lafayette, Ind., with
representatives from all other Big
Ten IFC and PanHel Councils.
Discussion topic of the eighth
annual meeting was "Growing by
Forward Planning."
More than 100 delegates and ad-
visors, including five Michigan
representatives, took part in con-
ference and discussion groups
working with such problems as:
cooperative buying, university ex-
pansion, sorority and fraternity
rush systems, and pledge training
It was also agreecr that better
relations with communities sur-
rounding campus areas must be
cemented by taking immediate
steps forward as each IFC deems
It was also decided that any
problem or situation pertaining to
segregation and discrimination be
sent to the Panhellenic Councils
of the Big Ten schools.

Biggest Story
What's the biggest story Doug-
lis has covered at Michigan?
"I guess the biggest one was
the NCAA hockey championships
at Colorado Springs last winter,"
he says. "But the most memor-
able, and the hardest to forget,
was the Ohio State game this fall."
Many of the readers of Douglis'
column in The Daily probably-
wonder what the Doog's reaction
to the 17-0 defeat was.
"It was miserable," he groans,
"like a sledge-hammer. I just

rather miffed. 'Phil Douglis,' I
say, calmly scraping away at my

The Doog chuckles.
"It took me quite a while to con-
vince him I wasn't lying."
Now A Technical Editor
As of last Saturday, Phil's sports
editor duties were over, although
he is still technically the head of
the sports staff. How does he feel
about the end?
"It happened too quickly. I feel
sort of empty, as if there's some-
thing I should be doing." Douglis
still has plenty of activities to keep

him busy, however. A member of
Tau Delta Phi fraternity, Druids,
senior honorary, and Kappa Tau
Alpha (a journalism honorary),
the Doog has sometimes found
himself attending at many as four
meetings a week.
As to the future, Douglis plans
to "shuffle along'" td either a job
in sports publicity or a stint of
writing for a sports magazine, pre-
ferably in New York City. He has
"no driving, idealistic ambition,"
nor does he want to change any-
Whatever the course fate holds
for Phil Douglis, his Purple Prose
(as he calls it) will always reflect
an unquenchable fire of love for
the color, action and romance of
the world of sports.

taste. Luckies give you better taste every time. That's because
they're made of fine tobacco-light, mild, naturally good-tasting
