ance of the

mneral Bur-

ly because of great practical assist-
ance' rendered in framing recent leg-
islation, that the senator ;who had

the statements he had made.
* Fame Grows wltlj Distance
- The old adage beginning "a prophet
*is not without honor-" is" very true
sin the case of Michigan's reputation,
- declared Mr. Brownrigg. "I have
ifound," he said, "that in the eastern
rcities the University of Michigan Is
i' given the highest rating of any
school, anid that graduates and former
Istudents secure an advantage from
Ithe mere fact of their having received
1their training here.,
"This arises from, the fact that
Michigan men have made good, and
that Michigan's faculty holds a very
- enviable reputation. .On the other
hand, I have found that in Detroit and
*other nearby towns the University Is
not so well appreciated. This results,
I expect, from the fact that these
*nearby cities are too accustomed to
*the University's 'proximity to get a
*broad view of the excellence of Its
All Departme~nts Praised
1 Mr. Brownrigg also instanced the
high esteem in which the government
holds Prof. J. W. Glover, of the Irr-
s urance departmenit, who rendered
tassistance to the governmient In much
of the actuarial work connected with
the organization of the War Risk In-
*surance bureau. The University's en-
viable reputation is not confined to the
econoinic' department alone, Mr.
Brownrigg stated, but extends to
graduates and faculty of all the col-

Editor, The MI hgan Daily:-
Ltshand it to E. M. Murphy, grad.
He at least has shown the courage of
his convictions. He has struck at the
exact and vital, though not the only,
reason, for the disastrous football sea-
son just ended. I say, niot without
reason, that, by the large, the opin-
ion of the undergraduate body sub-
stantially coincides with that of Mr.
Murphy as regards the utter break-
down of our standard of play in foot-
ball this year.
Assuming that there was fault in the
Athletic association, in the faculty, in
the student body, in the personnel of
the team, yet these assumptions, even
were they facts, cannot account for
the disheartening showing made by
Michigan's football team during the
season of 1919.
Men who have followed football= for
years will agree with me, I believe,
when I say that our team was woe-
fully undrilled and weakt in the 'open
style of play this year. They were
beginners not only during the early
part of the season, but at gall' times.
I will be supported by these same

style of play which, all things being
equal, wins football games in these
To those who observe the game anid
know something of it, it must have
been very apparent that at no time
during the year did the Michigan foot-
ball team reach a stage in perfection
and smoothness of play, past that of
early season form. They worked no
more as a unit than the poorest of
high school teams. The variety of
play 6was far below what it should
have been; formations were not run
off quickly and with the precision
which marks university 'football;
tackling was poor and showed evi-
dence of lack of coaching.
,These faults, I maintain, cannot be
laid at the door of the Athle~ asso-
ciation, regardless of its faults in oth-
er things. Neither can the faculty,
nor the student body, nor the players
as individuals be blamed. Nothing -
mains to bear the onus of the charge,
then, but the coaching.
