Writer Excludes Southern Schools This Year
By Norman E. BrownI
The selection of an All-eastern'
eleven this year presents a greater
problem than ever before for several1
'reasons. I..".. - "'
uSome of them are:j
The inability to compare logic-

of the divergence in their sched-1

gMichigan with all her champion-
!ships and athletic glory is one of the
Smost backward schools athletically in
its class. Football, basketball, base-
Sball, and(1 track are given a-great deaf
of attention b~y the authorities and
thie student body but a number of
other shorts are pitifully neglected
mnd several more are entirely ignored.
;several of these sporty rate as, much
attention as, any of the others.
Listed among thke minor sport",
i which are recognized by the athletic
authorities are hockey, tennis, wrest-
' ing, golf, and cross country. The!
tennis and golf teanms are strongly
su'pported but the others are suffering
from a lack of interest. Until that in-
terest is forthcoming Michigan can
knoit hope to take her stand with the,
gri at athletic schlouls of the land.
M cst of the Eastern schools have
fencing, boxing, soccer, and a number
tof' other sports recognized and every
spurt which is recognized is given
ggreat support.
To be considered successful ath let-
Vaaclly a school should have a major-I
¢ity of its student oody actively engag-
cd in sports. The more of those
sports which are recognized as Var-
'sity sports, the stronger and more
successful the athletics at a school
will be.. There is absolutely no valid
reason why the majority of the menf
:°tudents at the University of Michigan
hould not be trying out for Varsity
t iams. At any rate, there is no rea-
son why. a man talented in any
branch of sport should not be given
. t cance to win his letter in that
spr.But more sports cannot be
addto the list of those recognized
fby the athletic authorities until more
interest is shown in the teams which
SMIchigan now has.
rWhile the campus works itself into
:a frenzy over the question of "invita-
ition fraternity parties" there are all
Sof five sports at Michigan which go
y I-gging for material. "He men"
xshine their shoes while an insignifi-
(;ant minority of the men on the cam-
i u lend their efforts 'to maintaining
i' iliigan's athletic supremacy. Less
