THE FOLLOWING poem appeared in the 1921 'Ensian:
* * * *
remember the stand at Thermopylae
The Greek guard made one day,
I remember the legions Ceaspr used
To shatter the Gallic sway:
Andy I remember across the years
To banners that crowned the crest,
When Yale -was king of the opnquered East,
And Michigan ruled the West.
At night in my humble den I dream
'Of the glories that used to be
Of Hannibal striking the Alpine Trail,
° Of Drake on the open sea:
And then I wander the ancient. way
To the dream I love the best,
When Yale was king of the conquered East,
And Michigan ruled the West.
* * * *
This has particular significance this winter, when one considers the
recent results of many intercollegiate swimming meets. Michigan,
champion of the West, and Yale, champion of the East, will meet in
the coming NCAA tank championships at Ithaca, N. Y.
And the pattern first noticed in 1921 will continue to be prevalent.
The West will assert itself over the "conquered East," as Michigan,
and perhaps a number of other Midwestern schools, finish well ahead
of Yale, the Eastern champion.
East Backs Down .
IN 1921 Michigan was the power of the West, but the center of col-
legiate athletics u to that time was in the East. Harvard and Yale
were the traditional rivals, and the entire nation reveled to their
clashes. But times have changed, and the East succumbed to the many
problem of college athletics. Most authorities agree that the Midwest
is the strongest area now, but no one region dominates the country as
the East formerly did.
The results have been varied. With the great increase in college
athletics, the experts have had a rough time deciding which teams are
best. Today's national ratings have been superficial compared to the
former "kings" of the Eat. There was no doubt in those days, while
there Is nothing but doubt today. ,
But the deeper result of the shift has been in college athletic
philosophies. Harvard and Yale were primarily academic institutions,
which excelled in both scholarship and athletics. But as the athletic
field increased, it became harder and harder to be tops in both. A
school trying to keep academic standards high has a hard time putting
together top-notch athletic teams.'
i Wlen the pressure became too great the Ivy League quit the
big-time athletic scene. They felt that academic tradition was suffi-
cient, and that it could not be successfully combined with athletic,
The University of Chicago, which had shared Western academic and
athletic presitige with Michigan for a quarter-century did the same.
Michigan Holds On...
MICHIGAN did not. The Wolverines have attempted to keep up both
traditions, and so far they have had substantial success. Michigan
Is on top in most athletic endeavors, and ranks with the best academi-
The East was content with its decades of tradition..Most schools
in that area have not been willing to risk their former glory on the
same fields as the newer 'and larger Western schools. The majority
of the schools in the West had no tradition at a time when the East
had been on top for 50 years. The only way to build tradition was to
win, and the West has taken that direction at all costs. Michigan
was one of the earliest in this new game, and as a result has built a
tradition almost as solid as those in the Ivy League.
But Michigan's tradition is different from most of those West of
the Appalachians-it is a dual tradition of the kind the Ivy League
and Chicago abandoned 30 'years ago. It is far and away the highest
academic and athletic tradition in the country. And in this respect
i is perhps ancient and outdated in today's continuous dog-fight be-
t tween Institutions-a dog-fight carried on both the academic and
athletic fields. For Michigan is trying to compete with the best in both.
Such a position that schools like Harvard, Yale and Chicago dared
not remain in. It is certainly a favorable position whn possible, for
the Wolverines gain the highest praise in all areas. The question, of
course:/Can Michigan do what no other school has done, or has dared
And Remains a Favorite . .
T IS CERTAIN that Michigan will continue to try this balancing act.
The trend in coaches shows a willingness to battle the other Big
Ten schools at their own game-recruiting. And the success of some of
these men-Gus Stager and Don Canham this very winter-shows
what can be done.
It must be pointed out, however, that no concessions are being
made in the academic area. The present successes are being made with
athletes that meet the Michigan academic standards, and it is certain
that the same will have to be true in the future. No concessions are
being made in either the academic or athletic field-the' difference
must be made up by hard work on the part of recruiters, coaches and
It is perhaps unfortunate that Michigan has such a fine tradition
behind it when an uphill battle is continually facing them. But in
each game they enter, they are the favorites in the eyes of both the
fans and the opponents. This is, of course, a precarious position.
Fighting to keep both high academic and athletic standards, Michigan
is liable to become an underdog-but one that few people acknowledge
as anything but a favorite.
