footballers lost an opportunity for
a heavy pre-Army game practice
yesterday because of the rain.
With the battle of the two grid
powers only two days away, the
Wolverines made up for the lack
in stiff drills with a heightened
spirit. The improved physical con-
ditions of the men injured in last
week's Michigan State tilt spark-
ed Coach Oosterbaan's squad to a
lively, but limited, workout.
Practice on Dirt
Except for a short warmup in
the mud of the regular practice
field, the Wolverines stayed in-
doors on the hard dirt floor of
Yost Field House. Rough scrim-
mages and tackling were too dan-
gerous for those surroundings.
Instead, a running through of
both Army and Michigan offen-
sive plays constituted the major
portion of yesterday's preparation
for Saturday's game against the
only team that Michigan has nev-

The Intramural program at Michigan is 44 years old this fall.
Few students fully realize the top national reputation Michigan
has received in recent years, under Director Earl Riskey, for the
well-organized schedule of competition on residence hall, social
fraternity, independent, professional fraternity, and faculty levels.
The I-M program here offers 21 different team sports for the
residence halls and social fraternities and 32 open tournaments for
all male students on campus. Thirty-nine independent teams were
organized last year and competed in 15 sports. Twenty-three pro-
fessional fraternity and 41 faculty squads also were formed.
Hail to the Champions .. .
Besides the maize of competition throughout fall, winter, and
spring, the I-M department also sponsors a popular co-recreation
program on Friday nights at I-M Building. First co-rec night will
be the 14th of October.

Ever since 1916, when the Brook-
lyn Dodgers won their first Na-
tional League pennant, the famil-
iar cry, "Wait 'till next year," has
been heard echoing through the
renowned borough of Brooklyn.
No more will this almost legend-
ary phrase be heard-for next year
has arrived. Thirty-nine years
later, before 62,465 screaming fans
at Yankee Stadium, the Dodgers
defeated the New York Yankees,
and thus won their first World
Series, four games to three.
Playing in their eigth Series the
Dodgers, behind the superlative
pitching of lefty Johnny Podres,
