Bob Westf all Signs
Michigan A Il-American
Joins Dora is Backfield
Decision To Play Clarifies Football Situation;
Leaves Unsolved Question of Big Ten Rules
Bob Wes4all, former Michigan All-American fullback and member
of the famed Harmon-Evashevski-Westfall trio which scourged the West-
ern Conference three years ago, has decided to play pro football with the
Detroit Lions, thus ending the speculation as to whether he might once
again be in the Wolverine backfield this fall.
Lion coach, Gus Dorais, announced yesterday that the chunky spin-
ning back had come to terms and signed a contract yesterday afternoon,
terminating the controversy not only as to whether he would play for r
Michigan but also as to his eligibility under Big Ten wartime rules.
Even since Michigan's summer football practice got underway, rumors
have been flying around the Wolverine grid camp about Westfall's status,
and last week a vote of Conference coaches was underway to determine his
eligibility because of his previous three years of competition and his civilian A COUPLE
status. It is understood that the vote will be taken anyway as a ruling burg, S. C.
on possible similar cases. Youngstow

Westfall terminated his grid
career at Michigan in 1941 and
entered the Army Air Corps, after
achieving universal All-America-
recognition. After a short stay in
the Air Corps, he was transferred
totheyRadio Corps where he suffer-
ed a fall from a horse and conse-
quently received a medical dis-
During the summer Westfall has
been working in a war plant. He
has kept in close touch with both
Wolverine Coach H. 0. Crisler and
the Lion organization and at one,
time said that he would not play pro
football. Crisler was not available
for comment on Westfall's decision.r
"Bullet Bob" starred at Ann Ar-
bor High School for several seasons

before enrolling at Michigan and
then proceeded to demonstrate his
ability as one of the finest spinning'
fullbacks in the country. For two of
his three seasons of collegiate com-
petition he teamed with Tom Har-
mon in one of the greatest of all
Michigan backfields.
As a running mate to Harmon,
Westfall was somewhat over-
shadowed and it was not until
"Terrible Tommy" graduated that
Westfall came into his own and
garnered the coveted All-America
award, being named by both Col-
lier's and the Associated Press.
Many observers felt that Westfall
did much to make Harmon great
by setting the stage for the Gary
Ghost's off-tackle slants.

Five members of Michigan's 1943-'

members of Wolverine swimming
coach Matt Mann's squad competing
in the A.A.U. national outdoor swim-
ming championships to be held Aug.
24-27 at Great Lakes, Ill.
Mann has entered Charlie Fries,
Mert Church, Gordon Pulford and
Bill Kogen, freestylers, and breast-
stroker Heini Kessler in the meet as
well ash.,several of his youthful pro-
teges from Camp Chikopi in Ontario
which the Wolverine tank mentor
Kogen is entered in the 100, 200
and 400 meter freestyle events, Fries
in the 100 meter distance, and Kess-
ler in his specialty, the breaststroke.
Kogen and Fries will also team with
Church and Pulford in the 800 meter
freestyle relay.
Among the entries from Camp
Chikopi is Mann's son,, Matt Mann
III, one of the finest young swim-
mers in the state. The younger Mann
seems destined to follow in the foot-
steps of his illustrious father who
once was the British Isles champion.
Other entries in the meet include
freestyler Jerry Kerschner, formerly
of the Great Lakes squad which
twice defeated the Wolverines in
dual meets last winter and swept to
the indoor A.A.U. crown. Kerschner
is now swimming for the Bunker Hill
Naval Air Station.

key men in the Wolverine's triumph

cluding an inside-the-park home run
by Roger Cramer, while Ruffus
