The houses especially invited to
attend the Surgical Dressing Unit
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today at the
League are Mosher Hall, Kappa Kap-
pa Gamma, Alpha Phi, and Alpha

chairman of the unit announced yes-
The house that showed the great-
est percentage of participation last
week was Stockwell Hall, Miss Whit-
temore stated. "We would like every
coed on campus to give at least two
hours before the unit closes next
week," she added.
Stressing the fact that with the
invasion of Europe casualties are
mounting rapidly, increasing the de-
mand for surgical dressings, Miss
Whittemore said that the local unit
is still working on quota number
four, due last March.
"If every surgical dressing unit in
the country is as far behind as we
are, you can imagine the shortage of
dressings in our European base hos-
pitals," she stated.

Wolverines Have No Opponent
For Sept. 25 Home Opener

Coach Fritz Crisler and the Wol-
verines were left without an oppon-'
ent for their home opening game on
the Michigan gridiron yesterday
when the MSC Spartans cancelled
all athletic schedules for the coming
football season.
The cancellation of the Sept. 25
game breaks a gridiron series started
in 1898 between the two challenging
in-state teams. It also puts athletic
director Crisler in the tight position
&f finding another opponent to fill
the gap' in the home schedule.
Substitute May Be Found Today
Crisler, indicating yesterday that
he would probably have the substi-
tuting team on the docket by today,
listed Great Lakes, Iowa Seahawks,
'and Purdue as likely candidates.
Inasmuch as Big Ten schools are
committed to help service teams in

making schedules whenever possible,
the Great Lakes Team looks like the
most probable choice. Great Lakes
has the Sept. 25 slug already filled
but a little juggling would enable
that game to be played on the Michi-
gan field and leave an opening for
the second contest, likewise broken
by the Spartans, to come later in the
Purdue May Come After 13 Years
If the home opener were arranged
with Purdue it would be the first
meeting of that team and the Wol-
verines since 1930. Purdue at the
present time is scheduled for a bout
with Marquette for the opening sea-
son date.
Crisler said he had received a re-
quest from Western Michigan Col-
lege to fill the Sept. 25 date. The1
Broncos are loaded with Navy mater-
ial for the fall as is Purdue.
Tickets, already printed and in the
mail for the Spartan-Wolverine tilt,a
will be used for the new game, the
athletic staff indicated, with refunds1
when requested. The Wolverines,1

will don football pants and head-
gears soon for a scrimmage, Crisler

Snaps Tradtiont
EAST LANSING, Aun. 11.--P)--
Wartime cancellation of intercol-
Ilegiate athletics at Michigan Stater
College today snapped a continuoust
59-year-old "Aggie" and "Spartan"
football tradition.
The decision, announced by Presi-
dent John A. Hannah, applies to all
sports, but campus attention cen-
tered mostly on the abandonment of
the 1943 football schedule, for which
training already had started.
Voicing regret at the decision, MSC
authorities went ahead with plans
to keep the football spirit alive dur-
ing" the war with a civilian-Army
campus league which will offer fansl
a free double-header every Saturday
afternoon during the fall.-
Hannah pointed out that only one7
man was left on campus of the 135
men who played varsity and fresh-r
man football last fall and that onlyl
400 civilian men, enrolled in engi-
neering, pre-medical and veterinary7
courses, will return to the campus
this fall.
Football training started with 50-1
odd former high school athletes, moste
of them 17 years old, on hand.
Decision to cancel the current
schedules came after War Depart-
ment officials made it plain they
would not relent from their decision
banning all Army trainees from in-
tercollegiate competition. There are
more than 3,000 such trainees atl
Head football coach Charley Bach-
man said the decision was made
when college authorities realized theyt
would have to play a major schedule
with "inexperienced, immature boys."
Figy Assures Food Supply
LANSING, Aug. 11--(/P)-Charles
Figy, state aricultura commission-
er, declared today "there will bet

missioners of so-called "breadbasket"

Volo Son Is
Victorious in
NEW YORK, Aug. 11.-(IP)-Volo
Song, his pounding hooves beating
out sweet jive on Empire City's
dance-floor race track, gave Bill
Strang, the Brooklyn warehouse
owner, his second straight victory in
the Hambletonian today at 12,407
fans hung up a new betting record
for trotting's blue ribbon show.
After bowing in the first heat to
Worthy Boy, the speedy colt from
Mrs. James B. Johnson, Jr.'s Roches-
ter, Bare came roaring back in the
second and third miles under the
guidance of 70-year-old Ben White
to take down $23,263.92, the winner's
share of a purse that totaled $42,298-
.03. And for ageless Ben, it was his
fourth Hambletonian triumph-a
mark that no other driver has ever
been able to touch.
With second money of $8,459.61
going to Worthy Boy, Joe Burke's
Phonograph of Plainfield, N. J., car-
ried off third money amounting to
$5,075.76 as he wound up fourth in
the first dash and second in the last
two miles. And down in the blue grass
of Kentucky, Volo mite can take a
bow for he sired the first three horses
-another No. for the classic.
The crowd was considerably under
those that saw the race when it was
trotted at Gashen, its home since
1930 until transferred to Empire be-
cause of war time transportation
problems. But the fans loosened their
purse strings and sent the wagering
soaring to $353,400.
With the first three moneys divided
among the favorites the remaining
money awards went to Darnley, Rey-
nolds' Gordon Gray and Lt. Elbridge
Gerry's Hester Hanover.
