YOU ARE A STUDENT at the University of Michigan. Your football
team plays the Iowa Hawkeyes tomorrow, but this small matter
seems to have been forgotten for the moment. A much more exciting
and juicier bit of news is currently hitting the headlines from coast to
coast. It reports that seven Michigan students made the mistake of
getting caught passing football gambling cards. There is no mention
of the names of other pushers or even the students who have ventured
forth with a dollar every week in hopes of making a little money. No.
there are only seven students who are being asked to pay the price
for others who are possibly just as guilty.
The entire exposure stinks. Those who are responsible for it no doubt
had good intentions. but their methods were typical of most police
actions in Ann Arbor-amateurish. The Daily reporters were out to get
the big boys at the head of the ring. They ended up with only the
unfortunate small fry.
There are two results, both nauseating, which this case reveals. First
of all, the lives of seven of your fellow students, although not com-
pletely ruined, will certainly be tainted for a long time to come. It is
fortunate that the majority of the student body sympathizes with the
boys. They certainly won't be castigated. In my opinion they don't
deserve that fate.
The second result is much more engulfing .and even more pitiful
than the first. This case has exploded with shattering force. It has
attained publicity of which even the exposers nevel' dreamed. To the
average uninformed person in a small town in Nebraska, or in a mining
village in Pennsylvania, or in a segregation-filled city in Arkansas, or
even in cosmopolitan New York, the headlines revealing a gambling
ring operating on the campus of Michigan were accepted with the same
reaction. The words. "Isn't it a terrible thing." were muttered in all
parts of the nation. But you can't criticize those people who made this
statement. All blame must fall on the shoulders of the childish, irra-
tional journalists who plague the honorable and realistic members of
the Fourth Estate.
Top.Billing .
THPSE SCANDAL-CLAMORING newspapermen are indeed fortunate
that the United States is not currently at war because this would
have prevented them from giving top billing to the scandal at Michi-
gan. It is ridiculous enough that certain newspapers played the scandal
over the election of a new Pope.
You want to laugh when you hear about this wide-scope publicity.
You are on the exact scene where the scandal is reported to have taken
place. You are in a position to recognize how much out of proportion
the coverage has been. You suddenly reafze for the first time, however,
that the general public is not in the samhe position as you. Citizens all
across this nation are gullible and believe only what they read in the
papers. Your initial desire to laugh is suddenly cut off when you
realize that the name of Michigan has been damaged. It's not really
the shadows that are cast on Michigan that bother you, however. It's
the fact that in covering the scandal story, reporters have lost all sense,
of newsplay, causing unjust, illogical, and downright mistaken opinions
of this university to be formed.
The Future.,..
BUT THE DAMAGE has been done. The name of Michigan has been
dirtied. Words won't resolve what newspapers have made a trying
problem. Outward expressions of animosity toward the two Daily
reporters who uncovered the story won't help either. In fact, it will
do more to bring additional adverse criticism on the University.
Michigan is too outstanding to permit a gambling scandal to ruin
its good name,. The students at Michigan, I hope, will be proud enough
to also prevent this from happening. It is only through positive deeds,
however, that the Michigan tradition will endure. Outstanding achieve-
ments, although easily forgotten at times like this, must continue to be
made, so that impediments such as gambling scandals, or panty raids,
or food riots will be forgotten. Accomplishments at Michigan must
come not only on the academic front, but also in athletics. You are a
student at the University of Michigan. Your football team plays Iowa

What's going on in West'Quad?

important question that athletic

tem are asking each other this
year. And with good reason, for

years have been the doormats of

in 1951, the houses in that dorm,

berg, have dominated residence

success is undoubtedly due to a:

It's the fact that these houses
are entering teams that is making
a difference in the I-M standings.
For according to the intramural
system, houses are given all-year
points for just entering teams. So
with only two sports finished, the
big board in the lobby of the Sports
Building is showing an even spread
of points.
Grid Surprises
But the real news is in football.
Residence hall playoffs start Mon-
day, and in the first-place "A"
round, there are three West Quad
teams trying for the overall cham-
pionship-Winchell, Allen-Rumsey,
and Lloyd. They will be pitted
against Cooley of East Quad.
But why this sudden reversal of
form? Why have teams that have
been beaten consistently in the

past begin to become powers in
Ethe league?
Vic Weipert, athletic manager of
Allen-Rumsey, claims that his
house has done better because of
upper classmen who have pushed
sports and gotten the men to par-
ticipate. He feels that the Quad as
a whole is better because of a
healthy attitude on the part of all
the managers in West Quad.
"Go-Getters" Help
Lloyd's manager, Dennis Berry,
Lays that this year there are
enough individual "go-getters" in
the house that they won't let their
program fall apart.
But perhaps the best comment
comes from Earl Nuechterlein, As-
sistant Resident Advisor of Michi-
gan House, and Quad Athletic Co-
ordinator. He declares that,
"Everyone is just sick and tired of
taking gas from South Quad."

championship from Gomberg. This
Was the first time in six years that
the trophy had left the South
Quad house's trophy room. The
past year also shows that it is not
gust numebrs that produce cham-
pionships, for East Quad has
roughly the same number of men
per house as West Quad.
The houses in West Quad, mean-
while, just couldn't get rolling.
Last year saw only four minor
sports titles being copped by them.
This left twelve big championships-
for the South Quad teams.
Picture Changes
But the picture has changed this
year. Only two championships
have been decided thus far, but
one of these, cross-country, was
