THE MICHIGAN DAILY
In Partig ... A Defense
THE YEARS ALWAYS pass by quickly in the*sports world. Soon
the 1958-59 campaign will be history, and another generation of
a Michigan stars will graduate. Bob Ptacek, John Herrnstein, M. C.
Burton, George Lee, Dick Hanley, Cy Hopkins, Ed Cole, Eeles Land-
strom, Mamon Gibson, Pete Stanger, Jon Erickson. These, and many
others who didn't reach quite such individual heights, will have
played their last contest for Michigan.
Not only athletes, but others-including The Michigan Daily
Sports Editor-will end their college careers as well.
Such is the nature of the college system and subsequently of the
athletic system that is part of it. More than anything else this system
is changeable-and this is a quality that makes it better than its"
professional counterpart, simply because it is more unpredictable.
With a complete turnover every four years, no school can ever build
itself a powerhouse and rest on its laurels until these players grow
But it is so changeable that at times it becomes unstable. Someone
is always tampering with the works, and the result is a constant plague
of controversial issues-de-emphasis, high-pressure recruiting, use of
foreign athletes, ad infinitum. But such is the complexion of any
system that must play second fiddle to another-AND IN THE AMER-
ICAN COLLEGE, EDUCATION MUST BY DEFINITION COME.
At Michigan There's Room . .
BECAUSE OF THIS secondary role, the very existence of college
athletics is often challenged-and especially so at Michigan. For in
Ann Arbor the larger system, education, is at its very best.
But Michigan, more than any other school in the nation, has
proved there can be room for both education and athletics under the
same roof. By adhering to a rigid set of restrictions, Michigan has kept
athletics "in their place" and has yet been able to achieve the highest.
'honors in both areas.
The road Michigan has chosen is not the easiest. To keep athletics
"in their place," and at the same time to excel in them, demands
supreme effort from everyone concerned, Entrance requirements and
class standards haven't been lowered for athletes, and many prospec-
tive istars have been turned away. But the. fact that enough top stars
have been brought to Michigan to provide winning teams in almost
every sport every year speaks well for the men in the Athletic Depart-
The fact that Michigan has been able to assemble fine teams, and
do it within the established rules of the Big Ten and the NCAA, has.
provided the University with a fine athletic reputation. Michigan does,
recruit, but under the watchful eye of Athletic Director H. O. "Fritz"
Crisler, this recruiting is done in a thorough but careful manner. The
result, for Michigan's prestige, is beyond estimation: no other school
with such fine teams is known across the nation to be as "clean" as
Michigan. The Wolverines' name has always been a winning one, but
it has also been implyinggood sportsmanship and "athletics-within-
the-proper-perspective." This kind of reputation can hurt no one-not
even those who are against athletics.

* . For Rational Athletics ...
PUBLICITY IS ONLY one of the positive reasons for having ath-
letics at Michigan. The other reasons are perhaps more personal, and
more in line with intellectual rationale.
In the first place, education is the goal of Michigan, and through
athletics education is afforded a group of young men who would
probably get it no other way. Many athletes would not get into
college without the help of athletic scholarships, and another large
group would by-pass college for the professional game if there were.
not an opportunity to compete while getting an education. As long as
the standards of an institution are not lowered, there is -no rational
argument against letting these m'en be part of it. In addition, the
education afforded them is also valuable-even if it be a major in
physical education (which is the case for only about 20 per cent of
Michigan's varsity athletes)-for the tradition in America' is to let
anyone study anything, so long as they meet the standards,
And, finally, college athletics serve a purpose of entertainment and
centralization on the campus that nothing else can. The great "rah-
rah" days may have died, but the modern game is still 'a great attrac-
tion, something that would be missed by many if it were not there. A
large part of the leisure time of many students is spent watching
varsity athletics-and this in itself is a firm basis for keeping such
The fact that college athletics is more of a business venture today,
rather than the former "golden age" of the 1920's, has made it no less
interesting. It is of a higher caliber today than ever before, and would
be recognized as such had not4 the professional sports stolen the
limelight. Nevertheless, at Michigan }he teams serve the purpose of
entertainment-and serve it well.
... .And Certainly the Athletes
TWO DIRECTIONS were open to schools when, the "rah-rah"
days were over: de-emphasis for those who couldn't keep up the
"big-time" pace, and semi-professionalism for those with the money
and the guns. Michigan has attempted, and succeeded, in following a
middle-of-the-road course. This is the rational course-and it has
resulted in fine teams without loss of a fine reputation.
The reason for this rational course is primarily that rational men
are running it, men who have the good of Michigan, both academically
and athletically, at heart. Many of the diplomats of the athletic de-
partment-Bump Elliott, Gus Stager, Don Canham, Don Lund and
Al Renfrew, and of course, Bennie Oosterbaan---are all former Michi-
gan men who have the interests of the entire school at heart. And the
adopted men, from Crisler down to Newt Loken, Cliff Keen, Bill Perigo,
.Bill Murphy and Bert Katzenmeyer, have all taken up and hold high
this very special banner.
And the product they turn out is of the same high caliber. Simply
look at the men who are representing Michigan in athletics-Cy
Hopkins, Jon Erickson, Mamon Gibson, Ross Childs, M. C. Burton, to#
mention just a few.
In the end, if one is to condemn college athletics, it means
condemning the men that make up the system-and at Michigan such
condemnation will not stand up. Look again at the people that make
up the Athletic Department and the teams they send out to represent
the school. One can not doubt that what these men are doing for
Michigan is wholly right.
