IHE SETTING couldn't have
been nicer. It was an early
September evening in 1957 at Fer-
ry Field and the handsome, blond
coach was lobbing a football to his
six-year-old youngster who field-
ed the passes with marked enthu-
siasm. The sun was readying it-
self for its usual dip over Michi-
gan Stadium - the same place
where the young father had
earned laurels as a college foot-
ball hero only a decade before.
No, the setting couldn't have
been nicer.
It answered so many questions:;
there was the All-American glam-
our boy who came back to coach
his alma mater, the family man,
the tutor who can create enthusi-
asm in routine work, and the Sta-
dium which he now had to "re-
build" as a backfield coach to the
legendary Bennie Oosterbaan.
Jim Benagh, a night editor
on the sports staff of The
Michigan Daily, has been a
football manager for three
seasons.

Bump Elliott was home again-
and home to stay. Even the solid-
est of Oosterbaan supporters knew
Bump had been brought home to
be the next head coach at Micli-
gan; the blond was just too good
to be an assistant at any school.

with "student opinion" as someI
have feared.
A more significant factor in the
election was the almost complete
lack of communication between
candidates and voters. Although
four of the five elected members
were SGC people of one sort or
another, this can hardly be said
to represent a triumph of the stu-
dent government clique over the
disgruntled masses. Mainly, the
non-SGC candidates, simply did
not make themselves well known,
and this was a decisive factor.
T HE ELECTION went to the
candidates with the largest,
most efficient machines behind
them. Whether or not these are
the people who can best represent
and lead student opinion remains
to be seen.
Nevertheless student govern-
ment here will be in a dangerous'
position if only heavily supported
candidates can win elections; with
more or less independent people
outside of SGC circles unable to-
attract enough attention, however
potentially valuable to the Council
they might be.

head football coach in the Uni-
versity's history.
Sure. his duties do not official-

only a joke in the athletic depart-

he had been too concerned with

THE TIME IS HERE--Bump Elliott has taken over the head
coaching duties from Bennie Oosterbaan. Elliott was appointed
two weeks ago upon the resignation of Oosterbaan and becomes
the twelfth head coach in the University's gridiron history.
