TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1938 Price Three CentsAthletic Director Points Out Football DefectsASU Pays DebtTo Int-House;Dean Lifts BanPaying $86 to International House,the American Student Union yester¬day lifted the suspension which theDean’s office had imposed Wednesday.The debt was incurred through spon¬sorship of a Chicago Repertory groupperformance held at InternationalHouse last spring. Randolph Snively,executive chairman of the ASU, re¬ceived pledges from four memberscovering the debt in order that theorganization could be brought backon campus. Ann Borders, financialsecretary, paid the money yesterdaymorning.Repertory GroupThe Chicago Repertory Group,known for their presentation of dra¬mas with a “message,” had used theInternational House Auditorium oncebefore, and having run into difficul¬ties with the administration of theHouse, could not secure it again with¬out the sponsorship of a Universityrecognized organization. The ASUaccepted the Group’s request and af¬ter the show had been held found thatthe House asked for $86.50 to pay forrental of the theatre.The ASU claims that the moneyshould really be paid by the RepertoryGroup, since the Union had merelysponsored the performance, and notmade financial pledges. Not havingthe money, the executive committeedelayed paying the debt until theywere suspended by the Dean’s office.The ASU plans to repay the stu¬dents who gave the money for thedebt by contacting the general mem¬bership and requesting that they paytheir chapter dues for the year infull and also make a contribution tothe treasury. It is expected that theASU Theatre Group performancewill also help the financial situation.Other plans for a money-raising cam¬paign include lectures and smalljiarties.Talley Discusses"Manon^ at Lastl)\}era Hour TodayWith a description of the OperaComique and how it differs fromother types of opera, using Massenet’s‘‘.Manon” as an example, illustratingit.s characteristics at the piano, andaided by Mrs. Talley on the violin,Howard Talley of the Music Depart¬ment provides the program of thefinal Opera Hour this season in theReynolds Club this afternoon.Following this part of the programcranberry juice and orange nut breadwill be served and a group of starsfrom the Chicago City Opera Com-jiany will be presented by Mrs. JasonF. Whitney, wife of the president ofthe Opera Company.The Opera Comique is character¬ized by believable plots as contrastedwith the silly plots of some otheroperas, and an elegance of stylepeculiar to the French temperament.The three other types of opera are:Opera Seria, Grand Opera, and OperaBuffa.The Aides of the Day are: Persis-Jane Peeples, Clementine Van derSchaegh, Faraday Benedict, JoanneTaylor, Carl Stanley, Victor Peterson,Donald Bussey, and the ReynoldsClub Council.Harper Discusses MunichSamuel N. Harper, professor ofRussian Language and Institutions,will present his opinion on “TheSoviet Union and the Munich Settle¬ment”' at 7:30 this evening in SocialScience 122 before the GraduatePolitical Science Club. President E.Hawley cordially invites the public toatjzend the meeting. Post-Mortem and ProspectusThe football team has just completed a disastrous season.With the close of the season comes the realization that the Uni¬versity, if it maintains its present system and standards, willnever be able to produce football teams to compete with thoseof other large conference schools.There are four alternatives open to the University:1. It may subsidize in order to get good athletes andprovide a department of physical education for them so thatthere will be no worries about eligibility. This is out of the ques¬tion as long as the purpose of the University is to provide educa¬tional opportunities and not amusement.2. It may play small college teams whom it will be able togive a good contest and perhaps defeat. This may be objected toon the grounds that in the public mind the University wouldsoon become associated as an educational institution with theschools with whom its name appeared on the country’s pages.3. It can continue as it has, losing disastrously to goodteams, presenting to the still loyal spectators the pitiful spectacleof an eleven playing a rollicking amateur game while purposefulopponents roll up high scores against them. And outsiders willcontinue to remark, “Chicago? That’s where they have the losingfootball teams.’’4. It may abolish inter-collegiate football.This it appears to us is the wise course. There is no in¬dication at present that other schools in the conference will everregard football as anything but business. Unless the Universitycares to compete with them on this basis, it should withdrawcompletely.The immediate objection to this proposal will be that as(Continued on page 2) Metcalf Advocates Lighteningof Schedule; Players OpposePlayers CommentFrankfort TalksOn Monsters inFrench CathedralsProfessor Henri Frankfort, fielddirector of the Oriental Institute’sIranian expedition, will discuss “Mes¬opotamian Monsters in FrenchCathedrals” tonight at 8 in BreastedHall.He has done extensive research inpreparation for the talk, which, itmay be said, originated one wintermorning in the desert when a smallamulet cut from shell, about one anda half inches long, w’as found at TellAgrab in the ruins of a long desert¬ed city. The amulet reminded Profes¬sor Frankfort of certain sculptureson the capitals of Romanesque church¬es in Europe.Continues ResearchHe continued his research inEurope. His work consisted of a two¬fold study, namely, how these an¬cient motives reached the west atvarious times and why they appealedso strongly to the imagination ofwestern artists. Guided by some ofthe most easily recognizable andmost characteristic motives of thisgroup, the monsters. ProfessorFrankfort will trace the processwhich originated about 300 B.C. nearthe Tigris and Euphrates, to influ¬ence, 2000 years later, on the sculp¬tors and architects of the cathedralsof the West.Professor Frankfort was born inAmsterdam, Holland, and studiedthere and in Leiden. He worked withthe famous British archeologist SirFlinders Petrie after the war andhas done extensive work in Egypt.In 1929 the late Dr. Breasted put himcharge of the field work of the ex¬pedition the Oriental Institute inBabylonia and Assyria, modern Iraq.Since 1933 Professor Frankfort hasheld a research professorship at theUniversity as well as extraordinaryprofessorship at Amsterdam.Foreign Groups HoldKosmopolitan Kai“Kosmopolitan Kai,” with games,dancing, and refreshments providedby organized student nationalities oncampus, will be held tonight in IdaNoyes Theatre from 7:30 until 10.Admission is ten cents per per. on,and the party is open to all Univer¬sity students. Suggested by the Jap¬anese students, the name “Kai” meansparty in their language.Originating with the Race RelationsCommission of ASU, sponsors of theaffair include Chapel Union, NegroStudents’ Club, the Japanese, Chinese,and Philippine Student groups,Friends of India, and Avukah, Thesegroups have worked together in var¬ious campus activities, but they haveseldom met before for the sole pur¬pose of recreation. Int-House Shows‘PasteurFilm onBook-MakingA strikingly vivid portrayal ofFrance’s greatest scientist, and an in¬teresting comparison to the Americanversion of the same man’s life, willbe offered at International House to¬day when the foreign film series turnsto the French production, “Pasteur,”starring Sacha Guitry.Written, directed, produced, andthe leading character enacted by Gui¬try himself, “Pasteur” becomes an¬other of the one-man shows for whichthe man long-hailed as France’s lead¬ing actor is famous. Besides com¬ment roused by this individual styleof production, the contrast of dramatictechnique with Paul Muni’s acting inthe American “Life of Louis Pasteur”will be especially interesting to mo¬tion picture fans who have seen bothfilms.Offered as the fifth of the foreignfilm series at the House, “Pasteur”will have on the same bill a documen¬tary film on book-making, directed byPaul Rotha, noted British directorand critic. Following the making of abook from the author’s pen to thepublisher, through the printingpi-esses to the proof room, and on toadvertising campaigns and finalsalesmanship at bookstores, “Covetto Cover” brings to the screen threenoted British authors, W. SomersetMaugham, Rebecca West, and JulianHuxley, who comment briefly on lit¬erary technique and writers’ problems.Three showings of “Pasteur” and“Cover to Cover” will be given, at4:30, 7:30, and 9:30. Admission is 35cents for the matinee, and 50 cents forboth evening performances.Loyalist SpeaksTo Raise FundsFred Keller, returned Americanvolunteer Spanish Loyalist of the In¬ternational Brigade, speaks at 4:30today in Classics 10. His talk will besponsored by the University Friendsof the Abraham Lincoln Brigade asa part of their campaign to raisefunds to bring demobilized Americanshome from Spain.Keller’s experiences in evadingrebel detachments and swimming theEbro river three times with a bulletin his hip were related last springin the New York Times. In his talktoday he will relate other of his ex¬periences with the Government for¬ces.Because the Friends must have atleast $300 to bring men home fromthe recently demobilized brigade theyhave been sponsoring a series ofevents to raise money. Charge foradmission to today’s talk will be 15cents. With unanimous consent membersof the football team favor the con¬tinuance of football as an intercol¬legiate sport at Chicago. A majoritywould also like to see Chicago battlethe same caliber of team as it nowplays rather than schedule contestswith smaller colleges.Feeling that football definitely hasa place at Chicago, Captaitl Lew Ham-ity said, “The men on the footballteam play because they love it andnaturally don’t want to see it abol¬ished here. I don’t favor playing aschedule with small colleges althougha lighter schedule might be advisable.”Agreeing with Hamity, Dave Wie¬demann suggested that the Univer¬sity schedule only three Conferencegames a year and play one or twosmall college teams. “Although we de¬feated DePauw, I would rather playagainst the stronger teams and takea beating every week,” he added.Several members of the team feltthat Chicago had now reached thedepths of a cycle and that even underthe existing scholastic standards bet¬ter athletes would eventually findtheir way to Chicago.Satisfied to play the same oppo¬nents, Bob Wasem added, “With theproper alumni support Chicago couldhave the same type of teams it hadin the past. However, if we began toplay small college teams football in¬terest would decline and hopes for agood team would be dimmed.”The squad expressed no regrets athaving to meet Michigan, Ohio State,Illinois and Iowa next year athoughprospects for a better team are notpromising.Football PlayersFine Boys ButNot AthletesShaughnessy ExplainsMaroon Team’s PoorShowing.When asked to place the blame forthe gridiron team’s dismal failurethis season. Coach Clark Shaughnessysaid, “All the fellows out for footballat the University are a fine, clean-cutbunch of lads, with a few exceptions,they’re just not athletes.”Shag went on to say that the mainreason that the Maroons can’t put outa good squad is lack of time, lack ofphysical strength, and lack of pre¬vious experience. Stating that sinceChicago doesn't have a Physical Edu¬cation school, and therefore no stu¬dents come to the Midway just toplay football, he claimed that the pickof athletes naturally go to otherschools. He said that spring practicewas an essential of a good team, andpointed out that it is impossible toget men out to play football in thespring at the University, saying thatlast year, for example, there wereonly twelve men practicing an aver¬age of nine hours during the springsession.Team TacticsShaughnessy also pointed out thatsince the squad is as a whole physical¬ly inferior to its opponents, the onlyway it can beat them is by outmaneu-vering them. To achieve success inthese maneuvers, the players must gothrough more chalk drills, and learnmore plays than their heavier, moremature, and more experienced oppo¬nents. This mental strain in additionto the strain of classes, naturally re¬sults in a series of lapses, such aswere experienced in the College of thePacific game. “When the players haveto learn several, rather than one, de¬fensive system, it is natural that theyoccasionally get mixed up,” said theMaroon mentor.He claimed that another major ob¬stacle in the way toward Chicago suc¬cess was the lack of good substitutes.He said that Davenport and Shermanplayed the whole 60 minutes against(Continued on page 4) Athletic Director Dis¬cusses Reasons for Chi¬cago’s Trouble.“The University of Chicago issystematically lightening its footballschedule,” said Athletic Director T.Nelson Metcalf, in an interview yes¬terday. “This, I think, is the bestsolution to the problem of Chicago’sconsistent gridiron defeats. But if theUniversity administration thinks thata schedule in which the team playssmaller schools of their own athleticcaliber is harmful to public relations,I do not look with disfavor upon theabolition of intercollegiate football.”In a statement issued to the Ma¬roon, Metcalf made the followingassertions. He said that Chicago isespecially handicapped in those sportswhich require large numbers of goodathletes. The reasons he gave forthis lack of competent athletes arethe following. First and most impor¬tant, he says that Chicago has beenoutgrown by the great universitiesin the Big Ten. We have about 300freshman men while several confer¬ence schools have over 3,000. Themajority of our undergraduates en¬ter with advanced standing from oth¬er colleges, and this means that inathletic material Chicago is a smallcollege, not a large university.Secondly, Metcalf pointed out thelack of a physical education school toentice athletes to Chicago. Lack ofthis type of school means that thefootball players can't take snapathletic courses in order to remain -religible.Discourages RecruitingHe also gave the facts that Chica¬go discourages recruiting or subsid¬ization and that its scholastic stand¬ards are prohibitive as reasons of thefailure of the University to secureoutstanding athletes.Metcalf points out that Chicago isalso handicapped in those sportsthat require long hours of practice.Because of the scholastic pressureand the impossibility of having springpractice due to comprehensive ex¬aminations, the players enter everygame under a terrific handicap.The athletic director goes on tosay that the football situation “isof especial concern because of thespotlight of publicity on it. I believewe ai*e all agreed that it is not awholesome experience for ‘"ir hoysalways to play out of their class. Withso many schools constantly increasingthe emphasis on football as an allyear sport, I see no possibility ofChicago ever again meeting confer¬ence opponents on anything likeequal terms.“We have been outclassed most ofthe time for 12 years and seem tobe becoming relatively—not actuallybut relatively—w'eaker rather thanstronger.“This unbalance of football mater¬ial has led our coaches and playersto ‘press’ and to try too hard. Asa result they have frequently playedpoorer football than that they arecapable of. And I am certain that intheir effort to make up for the lackof spring practice the boys have giv¬en more time and energy to footballthan they can afford. To continue asat present is unfair to the boys forwhose benefit we have football.”Competition ValuableMetcalf closes by saying that hethinks intercollegiate competition isvaluable to the participants, but thateither the schedules must be lighten¬ed or intercollegiate football as suchshould be abolished.In another statement issued by theAthletic Office, the fact that of allthe male students at the University,53 per cent enter as transfer stu¬dents with advanced standing isbrought out. The statement alsopoints out that only 19 per cent ofthe undergraduate males are eligibleto compete in intercollegiate athletics,and that it seems inconsistent to con¬duct an elaborate intercollegiate pro¬gram for less than 20 per cent of themen students.i LPage Two THE DAILY MAROON, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1938“©IlE ^aroonFOUNDED IN 1901MEMBER ASSOCIATED COLLEGIATEPRESSThe Daily Maroon is the official studentnewspaper of the University of Chicago,published mornings except Saturday, Sun¬day and Monday during the Autumn,Winter and Spring quarters by The DailyMaroon Company, 5831 University avenue.Telephones: Hyde Park 9221 and 9222.After 6:80 phone in stories to ourprinters.

If it were a matter affect¬ing only the players this wouldbe valid criticism, but rightlyor wrongly the public fromwhich the University must drawher future students has cometo regard a losing football teamas a sign of a decadent studentbody. Chicago is having diffi¬culty in keeping its reputationas an educational institutionfrom being dimmed by thenotoriety of its football teams.There will be some who main¬tain it is possible to have botha great University and a goodfootball team. However, footballdoes not appear so importantthat students interested in hav¬ing a winning football teamshould make fools of themselvesevery two or three years ashave the students at the Uni¬versity of Iowa, who apparentlybelieve that games can be wonby the simple expedient ofchanging coaches.1.1 the nation today there isno trend toward a de-emphasisof football. At Illinois, whereseveral years ago a group ofalumni set out to sell educationinstead of football the wolveshave begun to howl for victor¬ies again. Coach Zuppke is pro¬tected only by the fact he isa tradition. And at all schoolssubsidization is coming moreand more into the open.There is the serious consider¬ation for the University of whateffect such an abolition wouldhave upon the publicity it couldget from taking such a step. Itis the old cry that the studentbody would become a bunch of“queers.’' To those who knowthe students of the Universitysuch a change needs no refuta¬tion. To those who do not, thereis the example of Loyola Uni¬versity here in Chicago, wherefootball has long been alDandon-ed.The entire abolition of foot¬ball would at the University asit has at Loyola still leave am¬ple opportunity for participationin other inter-collegiate sports.The University’s athletic policydoes not include competition insports where we are on an ob¬viously unequal footing. Thereare enough chances in sportswhich have not yet entered therealm of big business. Letters to theEditorBoard of Control,The Daily Maroon:Shall we abolish football here fora timfe, as Northwestern and Co¬lumbia did in the past, remaining inthe Conference for all other inter¬collegiate sports? The objection isthat fifteen or twenty boys come inhere every year who are keen toplay intercollegiate football. Yet ifa constant succession of defeats tendsto smother their spirit and zeal forrough physical struggle, our systemis bad for them. Would not a realisticact be for the Maroon to inquire ofall our present senior players, andof such former players as Bud Jor¬dan, Wally Nyquist, Jay Berwanger,etc., who are still connected with theUniversity, whether their spirit andzeal are smothered, whether theywish they had not played the gamehere?Shall we open our football team toevery student, freshman, undergrad¬uate and graduate, who is scholas¬tically eligible, and play such teamsas are willing to meet us after thatfashion? That has been suggested.Or shall we go on as we have beendoing, in the Conference, schedulingsuch football games with teams inand out of the Conference as we canget, beating the mediocre and beingregularly beaten by the superior?That is, I think, what we shall do,whether we should or not.“Alibis” interest none of us. Ofcourse we have small squads, theyoungest players anywhere, no chancefor Spring practice, etc. What of it?There will be no change in the situa¬tion here. Could w'e get a bettercoach? Ohio State, Harvard, Wiscon¬sin, and U.C.L.A. wanted Shaugh-nessy—are they all wrong about hisability? The Chicago Bears study anduse his offensive plays.No, neither alibis nor the idea of“getting another coach” interest me,at least. I would go on exactly as wehave been going on—unless HamitySherman, Valorz, Omar Fareed,“Duke” Skoning and such younggentlemen think they were and arebeing butchered to make a Romanholiday. That I would seek to discov¬er, and the discovery would be a de¬cisive factor in maintenance of orchange in the status quo.James Weber Linn.ITravellingBazaar“Some week-end, we’d say. Fromthe opening dinner-jacket at the Wy-vern formal party Friday evening, tothe final memorable tune at the Mor¬tar Board tea-dance Sunday evening,the amenities and dance music pre¬vailed . . . present were svelt BettyJean Dunlap, adorable Jane-Ann Vau-pel, Kay Stevenson, the most popularof the Freshman women, and JeanGayton and P. J. Peeples, two de¬lightful sophomores who are becom¬ing more charming every week thatslips by.”Two years ago that column, withsome additions, started a red-headedgad-about-campus, who hailed from asmall southern city, on the way tocampus notice. The unfortunate genthad written the piece.Had the massive mind that com¬posed the epic been content with writ¬ing Bazaar everything on campuswould have been serene.But unfortunately the mind be¬longed to Ned Fritz. And Ned wasambitious. He wanted to be editor ofthe Maroon. He worked hard and gotto know the right people. He pledgedPhi Psi.But then, defying justice, the Ma¬roon selected Willie McNeill, editor,who Ned felt was in every way in¬ferior to the candidate that Ned waspushing.Ned was placed on the Board ofControl, but he cast about for someother way in which his great talentswould be noticed. He finally hit uponthe idea of the Political Union. Hepromptly organized it and had himselfmade chairman. Here was recognitionindeed. Art DepartmentAlter DegreeRequirementsDegree requirements in the depart¬ment of Art have been altered so thatArt students must include in theircourses of study a related field outsidethe department, Ulrich A. Middledorf,acting head of the department, an¬nounced recently. The change wasmade to bring requirements into linewith those of the rest of the Human¬ities division, he explained.Heretofore, it has been possible forstudents to take their majors in Arthistory, criticism, or practice, andtheir related fields in another of thethree. Now, the student is expectedto supplement art work with coursesin allied departments, such as An¬thropology, History, Philosophy, Re¬ligion, Linguistics, and Literature.Latin Useful“Acquaintance with Christian andClassic or non-European literaturewhich furnishes the subject matterfor Art will be found indispensable,”the new requirements read. “For thispurpose, a knowledge of Latin is use¬ful. Prospective teachers usually takethe educational sequence as a relatedfield.”But, with his newfound prominencetaking up all his time Ned could beno longer bothered with the Maroon.He rarely showed up at the office ex¬cept to demand publicity and to bor¬row money for the PU. In fact he didso little work on the Maroon, thatmany were in favor of denying himhis cut of proceeds.When the year ended PU had beena minor success but it had made nomoney. Fritz was left with a personaldebt to the Maroon of close to 30dollars. Ned refused to pay, claiming jthat he thought that the Maroon Iought to stand the expenses because |the PU had done so-o-o much good, jj The Maroon replied that the only per- json it had done good was Fritz, and |business manager Hoy deducted the I30 dollars from Fritz’s profit cut onthe Maroon. |Ned was no end burned up, and thisyear he conceived a plan w’hereby hemight be reimbursed. If a Nazi wasasked to speak on campus, admissioncould be charged, and the PU could |pay off Ned. A Nazi was asked atthe same time as the German Pogromsbegan. Immediately several hundredpeople and organizations objected tothe meeting. There was an internalfight in the PU. Someone finally sug¬gested that if the meeting was heldthe funds derived from it should goto the German refugees. Fritz ob¬jected vigorously on the grounds thatthe Nazi would be insulted.The real reason for his objectioncame out later. The dean’s office re¬fused to allow the Nazi to speak. Andat the substitute meeting Fritz an¬nounced that the dean’s office had de¬cided that no funds would be paid torefugees until the PU debt (To Fritz)was paid off. There is no doubt thatNed once again saw the 30 dollarseluding his grasp.This new Ned is some change fromthe adorable Fritz of the early Bazaardays. Then every male was hand¬some to him, and every girls was “areal candidate for the Freshmanqueen.” Today he is vindictive andbitter.He stated to the press in solemntones that his “faith in democracy wassadly shaken” by recent events.

SomersetMaugham, Rebecca West and Julian Huxley.TODAY4:30 (35e) - 7:30 and 9:30 (50c)International HousePage FourWorks DiscussesFour Year CollegeAthletic ProgramAbolition of Inter-Col¬legiate Sports Not Nec¬essary.“The establishment of a four-yearcollege at the University will notnecessitate abolition of intercollegiateathletics,” George A, Works, Dean ofStudents, announced yesterday. “Al¬though an athletic program wouldhave to be formulated for studentsin the first two or three years of theCollege, seniors and men in the Divi¬sions could continue to representChicago in athletic competition.”However, the four-year collegewhich begins at the junior level inhigh school and continues through thepresent College, is still little morethan an experiment. “People in theMiddle West are too much sold onhigh schools to accept the four-yearcollege,” Works stated.Problem is Remote“It will probably be 25 years be¬fore the College gains a strongenough foothold so that it presentsan athletic problem here. Yearly tui¬tion of $300 and the increased en¬rollment in private and public juniorcolleges are two factors that presentobstacles to the University’s plan.”Contrary to general belief the ad¬vent of the four-year college wouldnot necessitate Chicago’s removalfrom the Big Ten. Since the Big Tenis an association founded to estab¬lish athletic rules, Chicago can con¬tinue to be a member so long as itconforms to the standards. Alsoparticipation in every sport is notessential for membership.Drawbacks to PlanAlthough intercollegiate athleticswould continue under the four-yearcollege, student interest might wane,Works stated. Games would be sched¬uled with junior colleges and highschools for younger students and withcollege teams for the older athletesbut with the Divisions an entirelyseparate part of the University, thenumber of athletes available and in-Clerested in varsity competition mightdecline.“However,” Works added, “withstudents playing six years of footballwe might even have a better team.The squad might be smaller but themen would have had more experienceand training.“The solution of the whole athleticproblem,” he concluded, “might be tolighten the schedule or to allowevery accredited student in the Uni¬versity, both graduate and under¬graduate, to participate and thenschedule games with schools thatwould meet us on these terms.”Works believes that schools like Har¬vard and Yale would be willing tomeet Chicago under these conditions.Illinois DefeatsMaroons, 34-0Failing to hold the Illini after put¬ting up a game fight for three quar¬ters, the Maroon football team wentdown to defeat Saturday by a scoreof 34-0. Although they did not wina Conference game, the team endedthe season with one victory, one tie,and six defeats.During the first half Illinois re¬peatedly drove deep into Chicago ter¬ritory only to have the Chicago’s linehold at crucial moments. However af¬ter two failures to score, Petersonfaded back to pass to Rettinger whowas thrown out of bounds on the oneyard. Later, Brewer plunged over forthe score.Chicago FumblesAfter Chicago had fumbled on itsown 21 in the second quarter, Illinoisagain pushed the ball over the finalmarker, using five plays to make thenecessary yardage.Playing his last game for Chicago,Sollie Sherman assumed most of theburden of the Maroon attack duringthe first half. However, after havingcompleted a 23-yard run, the longestof the day for Chicago, he was in¬jured and had to be removed from thegame.The Maroons battled on even termsduring the third quarter althoughthey only threatened once. With LewHamity passing, Chicago advanced toIllinois’ 35 before being finallystopped on downs. For the first timethis year Chicago’s punting outshoneits rivals as Carl Nohl averaged 51yards on his three kicks. THE DAILY MAROON, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1938How About It, Major Griffith?Shaughnessy—(Continued from page 1)Pacific, because “dog-tired as theywere, they were better than any sub¬stitutes I had available.”No Certain Remedy^ When asked if he had any remediesto propose for the situation, Shaugh¬nessy answered, “There is no remedythat I can suggest, save that we light¬en our athletic schedule. If I wereto turn out the strongest team pos¬sible, I’d take about the twelve bestplayers and work with them and letthe rest of them go. But when I camehere, I was told that it was my job totake every student who desired tocome out for football and give himall the training possible. And I’vetried to do that. After all, every stu¬dent who pays his tuition is entitledto the same tutelage as every otherstudent.”“Whether the team loses or wins,”concluded Shag, “the training thatthey get in developing themselvesphysically is available, and is reasonenough for the maintenance of par¬ticipation in football; this trainingmeans that when they go out into theworld, they will have stamina, moralcourage, and wont be afraid of everypasserby on the street”. Metcalf ReportsOn Subsidization ofUniversity AthletesRumors persist that University ath¬letes are subsidized. Some help maybe given by the alumni but this isentirely outside of the University’sjurisdiction. Actually, jobs in the ath¬letic department are given to athletesfirst but this is the total of the Uni¬versity patronage. Football playersdo not receive special concessionsfrom the University.These facts were released by T. N.Metcalf from a report on last year’sathletics. The report covers varsityathletes (men who played in at leastone intercollegiate contest) and fresh¬men athletes (men who receivednumerals).Scholarship PercentagesThirty-four per cent of the footballplayers received scholarships while 25per cent of the rest of the studentsreceived scholarships. This includesall types of scholarships, part andfull. The slight increase in scholar¬ships to football men can be accountedfor by the large number of freshmenout for football. The freshman class Every school in the Big Ten hasbeen regularly violating the Confer¬ence eligibility rules for years. Sec¬tion two of rule six states specificallythat no . . . person who receives aregular annual or monthly compensa¬tion from the university for servicesrendered shall be eligible to play onany team.”This means that every student inang Big Ten school who has done anysort of work and has been paid regu¬larly for his services is ineligible tocompete in any intercollegiate sport.Working in Harper Library sortingbooks or filing cards is therefore justas illegal for an athlete as receivingmoney for endorsing Wheaties.Eliminates AthletesIf this rule were strictly enforcedBill Murphy, Joe Stampf, John Dav-holds more scholarships than theother classes.Seventeen varsity men had jobs oncampus last year. At first glance,when it is considered that there wereonly 27 men, this number seems tre¬mendous. However of these 17, tenretained N.Y.A. jobs at the sametime. enport, Sollie Sherman, Art Jorgen¬son, and many, many more of our ath¬letes would never have been able toparticipate. Big Ten athletic competi¬tion would have never risen above thelevel of a super-intramural program.However this rule obviously carriesno weight. Either Big Ten officials donot care to enforce their eligibilityrules, in which case Chicago‘couldgo right ahead and subsidize a firstclass professional team without hav¬ing to worry about scholastic require¬ments, or else the Conference officialsdon’t know what their rules imply.Perhaps they haven’t even read theirown rules.For the I F BallGETRITZIE CORSAGESAT NlTzlL'8MTTZIE'S FLOWER SHOPhfidway 4020 1233 E 55th St.• Anybody can be a Monday-morning quarterback, butwhat does it take to be a real one?
