Stagg Still Enjoying
Football Coaching

STOCKTON, Calif. (1P) - Amos
Alonzo Stagg, the grand old man
of football, celebrates his 99th
birthday on Wednesday, still full
of interest for the game that made
him famous.
Asked what he thought of foot-
ball's'future, Stagg replied sharply,
"I think well of the future. But
I think too much effort is toward
not inventiveness of play, but on
securing material.
"I am not in favor of recruiting
and the policies used in recruiting.
No Recruiting
"If they're football players, take
'em as they are. I had a policy of
no recruiting. I felt it was my
job to take 'em as they come."
Sitting under a fig tree at his
home here, the man known al-
ways as Mr. Stagg by his players,
reminisced on his introduction to
football in 1884 at Yale.
"I played football," he said, "be-
cause of a buddy of mine from
Orange (N. J.) High School. At
Yale, freshmen made their own
choices on which sport to go out
f or,
"On that particular day, a group
of us started out to try rowing.
We hadn't gone more than two
blocks from campus when there
was a change in mind of which
sport to go out for. I had no
opinion. I knew nothing of either
A chance meeting with other
freshmen sent them. to the foot-
ball field. Stagg was on the way
to greatness, and football's Hall
of Fame.
Football "Exciting"
"I liked the roughness and ex-
citement of practice and later the
games," he explained. "Football
was full of vitality and was very
stimulating to me." '
Although he went to Yale to
study for the ministry, Stagg went
into coaching when the president
at the University of Chicago, his
former teacher of the Bible at
Yale, offered him the job.
At Chicago, his teams won seven
Big Ten titles and five of the
clubs had undefeated seasons.
It was Stagg's team that also
dethroned Fielding H. Yost's pow-
erful Michigan squad and snapped

Heads West
He was head coach 41 years
until reaching mandatory retire-
ment age. At 70, retired from
Chicago, Spagg became head coach
at College of the Pacific, continu-
ing until 1946. He remained active
in football, as advisory coach of
Stockton (Junior) College until
last year.
Askedrwhat he considers neces-
sary in a football players, Stagg
answered, "First, his patterns of
life and how he maintains them:
physically, he 'must be a good
trainer. He must be able to pro-
duce the best that's in him morally
and spiritually."
No Swearing
Stagg never swore, explaining,
"The strongest word I used was
jackass. Some claim I called them
double, triple and sometimes quad-
ruplebjackesses, but I don't re-
Asked if he had a secret, for
longevity, the former star and
coach answered, "Why, I don't
know as I have any single secret,
but I believe in behaving yourself
morally and spiritually."

States today, confident he will be
able to set new swimming records.
Konrads, holder of all world
freestyle records from 220 to 1,650

University of Southern California.
"I have never felt so keen to
get back into training," said the
19-year-old Konrads today while
"Quite honestly, I am breaking
my neck to start swimming again.
Yamanaka's new world time of
2:01.1 for 200 meters is a chal-
