By The Associated Press
NEWARK, N. J., Aug. 3-Dr. Harrison S. Martland, chief medical
examiner of Essex county, said today an autopsy showed that the death
of Lem Franklin, 28-year-old Chicago Negro heavyweight boxer, resulted
from, "A type of injury where surgery offered no hope."
Franklin died earlier in the day in City Hospital where he had been
under treatment for injuries received on July 24 when he was knocked{
out by Larry Lane, Trenton negro, in the ninth round of their scheduled
10-round main event at Meadowbrook Bowl.
The medical-examiner asserted that Franklin had been struck in the
middle of the forehead and multiple concussion hemorrhages of the brain
resulted, but, he added, it could not be determined whether the injury
was caused by a blow or by the subsequent fall.

Several men have reported con-
siderable loss of weight during the
past few days as the mercury soared
into the 90's. A few of the more'
hefty gridders dropped as many as i
ten pounds after a single workout.
Coach Crisler noted a general
dropping-off in the performance of
his squad, but much of it may be
attributed to the weather man. All
coaches are anxiously awaiting a
break in the heat so contact work
may be resumed.
Although Crisler has made no com-
mitments about a possible starting
lineup, it seems probable that several
freshmen may take the field on open-
ing day, Sept. 16. Michigan used
first-year men very sparingly last
fall.
Among the more promising year-
lings are Dick Rifenburg, the 17-
year old end from Saginaw; Roger
Chiaverini, a tackle; guards George
Burg and Quentin Sickels; center
Chuck Wahl; and tailback Gene Der-
ricotte.
