"The association has- steadily refus-
ed to have anything to do with those
who want something for nothing, and
in this refusal I am sure the thought-
fut students and -alumni can feel a
just pride.
"Obviously, in a place the size of
Ann Arbor, there are fewer opportun-
ities for remunerative employment
than in the larger cities.
"The shortage of equipment has
been another topic of much discussion
this year. Every effort has been made
to get necessary equipment. Due to
a general shortage of athletic goods
this fall, there have been some tem-
porary delays. In some cases it may
be that a man may not have been,
equipped the first day he reported at
the club house, but he was supplied'
or could have been supplied, with an
outfit within a short time.
Considers Students' Attitude
"I think, however, in' spite of all
that has been said this year the root
of the whole situation is the* attitude
of the student body. They have been
good on criticism but lacking in mate-
rial help.
"The season is over now and we
should look to the (ut'ure in view of
eliminating the possibility of this
chaotic state of affairs overtaking us
again. We should endeavor ,to create
a spirit which will make it so hot for
athletes who fail to go out for the
team and who fail to keep up in their
work that they will be uncomfortable.
"We will have enough experienced
men back next year to turn out a
good team IF they are available, but
they can't become avaiable by stand-
ing around on a' corner talking about
what should have been done. The
thing to talk about now i§ what we
are going to do-and to get busy and
do it."

all he needs is the material to do it)
with. There have been' complaints
made on the plays we have. We have
plenty of new plays, but they depend
upon upon every man doing -his part.
This year the team has not been able
to execute them because two or three'
of the 'men could not be depended
upon to do what they were supposed
to do.
"It seems we have been short of
equipment this year. I am using the
saie kicking shoe I wore in 1916. It
is so worn out that it has to be sew-
ed up after every gamey I was told
at the beginning of the season that a
new one had been ordered, but it did
not arrive. After waiting three weeks
I went up andasked George Moe the
sporting goods dealer, what was caus-
ing the delay. He told me that the
order had been cancelled. However,
Coach Yost wired a friend of his and
got me one, but it came too late to be
broken in this year..
"Another thing does not seem right
to me. I don't think a man should
have to pay for medical treatment of:
an injury sustained in an athletic con-
test. During my three years of foot-
ball here I have spent a good deal of
money to get my knee fixed up. Dur-
ing the seasons of 1916 and 1917, I
went to a specialist at Battle Creek

Says Faculty Will Help
Prof. J. R. Brumm of the rhetoroc
department has ,been connected with
the University for 19? years. He was
asked what he thought the reason was
for theN large number of ineligible
players this year.
"Some of these cases could have
been avoided I think, if the Athletic
association had attempted to co-
operate with the faculty. If we knew
whom the association was interested
in having available we could keep
after the man and give him some Ig-
tra help in case he was experiencing.

"I know that the faculty is will-
ing to do all it can in this respect. I
derive this conclusion from what in-
structors and professprs have said
this fall when discussing the situa-

The "harness shop" epis de. in
which it was alleged that an injured
player was sent to such a place for
treatment instead of to a specialist,
has been the topic of much discus-

truth of the matter, Willard L. Peach,
'20, about whom the story is woven,1

Peach said he was injured in prac-

Clifford Sparks. He was instructed 1
by Dr. Bartelme to attempt to obtain

No Co-operation Says Sparks
Clifford Sparks, '20, who has pilot-
ed the Wolverine team for three sea-
sons attributes this year's showing to
the lack of co-operation betwen the
Athletic association, faculty, and stu-
dens, and the lack of the interest man-
fested in athletics. "I do not think
three has been enough conberted ef-
. fort exerted in keeping the men elig-
ible,",he said. "By this I do not mean
that an athlete should be favored, but
the Athletic association should have
some means of ascertaining a man's
standing in his courses every month.
If it is found that he is getting down
in a subject, steps should be taken to
help him get back on his feet.
The majority of the cases the inelig-
ibility this year could have been pre-
vented, I think, if the men had known
that they were getting behind.
"There is something wrong with
the spirit this year too. When I enter-
ed the University, a man who could
play football went down 'to the field
and worked hard all season. Some of
these men worked for two years be-
fore they even got a chance to get on
the reserve squad. Now men who
have played in *-preparatory schools,
or who possess the physical ability
to play seem to lack the ambition to
try out for the team. There are sev-
eral prominent high school athletes
here this year who have never re-
ported at Ferry field.
Yost Not to Blame
"As far as Coach Yost is concern-
'ed, I do not think there is a better
coach in the country. He knows foot-
ball and knows how to put it across,
