Kelto was the real unsung hero of the Michigan line this season. Although most of the tackle plaudits went to Al Wistert, Coach Fritz Crisler often characterized Kelto after a game as the beat lineman on the field. L j Kelt will be graduated from Michi- I gan's engneering school next June. He hails from Bessemer, where he was coached in high school by Bob Reihsen who teamed at guard with Carence Munn in the Miuesota line in 1930 and 1931 when Fritz Crisler was the Gophers' head coach.
