Generosity Of Aetion Called "Fine
Example Of Sportsmanship"
By President
Northwestern has conceded the
championship of the Western Confer-
ence to Michigan, declaring that they
believe the Wolverines are entitled to
sole and undivided honors in the race
for the title. A telegram, signed by
the captain and coach of tire Purple
team and both faculty men and stu-
dents, was received by President Clar-
ence Cook Little yesterday morning,
which reads:
"The undersigned, representing and
speaking for the 1925 football team
of Northwestern university, its foot-
ball coach, its athletic director, the
chairman of its faculty athletic com-
mittee, the administrative officers of
the university and the board of trus-
tees, all join most heartily in extend-
ing to the University of Michigan the
congratulations of Northwestern uni-
versity upon the splendid showing
made by its 1925 football team. We
have noted in the Chicago press, and
t undoubtedly appears elsewhere, that
Northwestern university is being ac-
credited with joint honors with the
University of Michigan. In view of
the remarkable showing that has been
made by the 1925 football team of the
University of Michigan we believe that
the University of Michigan is en-
titled to sole and undivided honors in
the Conference and we wish you to
know that Northwestern makes no
claim for any share in them, but re-
gards it as a privilege to be even for
a few minutes placed in a class with.
the University of Michigan's team."
The telegram was signed by :Cap-
tain Tim Lowry, Glenn Thistlethwalte,
K. L. Wilson, L. F. Long, Walter /Dill
Scott, Robert W. Campbell.
Little Sends Reply
President Little answered the
Northwestern telegram with the fol-
lowing message: "The telegram which
you and others have sent is a splen-
did example of the spirit of fine sports-
manship and honest -statement of
opinion which has characterized all
the actions of your institution in its
contact with the University of Michi-
gan. Honors of the type mentioned
in- your telegram are always more or
less problematical, but no one can do
more than share first honors of sports-
manship with your institution and one
is fortunate who can claim that right.'
--C. C. Little.
Algler Sends Wire
In addition to Dr. Little's reply to
the message there were also answers
sent by Prof. Ralph W.. Aigler of the
Law school, to Prof. O. F. Long and
by Captain Bob Brown to Captain Tim
Lowry. Professor Aigler's answer
reads: "Thanks for your telegram. We
appreciate its generous spirit. Was i
not said on a much more important
occasion that this, 'There is glory
enough for all"'
Captain Brown's message was s
follows: "Appreciate your telegramn
very inuch. Feel that it expresses the
fine- spirit that has always been mani-
fest in contests in which Northwestern
hami taken part."

elin throw in the Western Conference

that X-ray plates had been taken of
