Mike Enich



Gassin’ with GUS

By Gus Schrader

THE IOWA-Indiana game this afternoon will have a flavoring of the 1939 Iron Men with the presence of Iron Mike Enich and Ken Pettit. Both wounded with the marines in Pacific action, the two are expected to witness today’s game while on sick leave. Mike was wounded twice in action. Ken has been in Great Lakes hospital recovering from an injury received when he was hit in the arm by an airplane propeller. At the hospital there he had a bed right next to that of Bill Hofer, former Iowa frosh football coach, who received shrapnel wounds at Okinawa.
