DETROIT, Dec. 11.-Within another
year the University of Detroit hopes
to alter its present athletic status as
a "one-sport" school.
At present the University of Detroit,
largest of the state educational insti-
tutions in Michigan, is devoting vir-
tually its entire sport interest to foot-
ball. Basketball 1s played in season,

Stan Wells, and "Truck" Wieman.
It was on the old gridiron at the
south end of Ferry field that the most.
spectacular part of the history of
Michigan football was enacted. It
was there that the title of "Hurry Up"
was bestowed upon Coach Yost and
there that the Famous point-a-minute
were trained. It was there that Hes-

Hammond goaled, Neil Snow punted.

It was there that McGugin ..spurred

lit was there that West Virginia was

The new field and stadium, which:
is still unnamed, will give better ac-
