of the four youngsters com
prising Fesler's signal-calling
corps ever played in a college
football game. Rounding out
this quartet is Don Swanson,
Max Schmitt and Joe Burgoyne.
There is not a chance of an ex
perienced or upperclass quarter
back getting into the game for the
Gophers for the simple reason
that there is no such an individual
on the squad.
This is probably the youngest
gang of quarterbacks to ever suit
up for a Big Ten eleven. Giel,
Swanson, and Schmitt are 18.
Burgoyne is the "old man' of the
group at 20.
While the past history of
Minnesota football reveals only
a very small handful of soph
omores who have made any sub
stantial contribution to the
Gopher football cause, Coach
Fesler refuses to worry about
the youngsters who will be re
sponsible for the direction of
the Maroon and Gold eleven this
fall. In fact he tends to the op
timistio and feels that with a
little seasoning the signal-calling
position will be one of the
strongest on the club.
Already Giel, Swanson, and
Schmitt rate as potentially the
most capable trio of forward
passers that has played at a single
position in the entire history of
Minnesota football. Says Fesler of
his "brain-trusters," "we expect
these kids to make errors typical
of any newcomer to college com
petition, but they are going to be
all right. They will play a lot of
I fine football."

Although most of us are primarily interested in varsity sports,,
The Benchwarmer would like to pause long enough today to saiuie
the Husker intramural athletic program.
If it were not for intramurals, an occasional game of ping pong
is as close as many students would get to actual athletic participa
tion. But under the capable direction of Ed Hlggenbotham and
Charley Miller, the University intramural program offers a com
plete variety of sports.
' Higginbotham and Miller have arranged a' schedule which in
cludes several sports for the fall, winter and spring seasons.
And it is arranged so that Independent, Greek and Interdenom
inational teams can all participate.
The leagues are divided up in such a way that the strong teams
will be competing against each other as will the weaker outfits.
This set up gives every team an even opportunity to win a
championship title of some sort.
And though the intramurals may not receive as great an amount
of notice as dp the varsity sports, there is no doubt that a lot of
interest and spirit is present.
One has only to note the teams practicing and listen to the
talk about games to realize the important role that intramurals
play in campus life.
To make the competition even better, a trophy is awarded
to teams that win All-University sports events. And due recogni
tion is given to all others that win places in the final standings.
Keeping right in step with other Husker activities, Higgen
botham and Miller have launched a fall program which includes
touch football, golf, tennis, bowling and a basketball free throw
Football will be in the Intramural sportlight for tne next
two months, though the other four also occupy a prominent place.

any evening during the week, and you will see plenty of specta

That sports menu should oe tnorougn enougn so war, everyone

employed the double wing forma
