Andi Recognition Of Fencing
Also Santioned
FENCINGi VARSITY SPORT
Definite approval of four major
projects' was tendered by the Board
in Control of Athletics at a meeting
of that bodyr yesterday at the Union;
'schdules, hiring of Franklin C. Cap-
pon, second teams, and. recognition
of fencing as a 'Varsity sport wre
all officially confirmed.
The hiring of Cappon, '23, one of
the hardest driving and most versa-
tile backs ever to (don the Michigan
moleskins, was the feature action +af
the board. News that negotiations for
his services were under way leaked
out about a week ago, but the runers
were unauthoritative.
Receives All-American Honor
Cappon, whose play in the Michigan
backfield during three years of com-
petition attracted most attention, was
also capable of assuming the duties
attendant to every place on the teanm
with the exception of center. Walter
camp, deceased sports critic who wit-
nessed one of Cappon's brilliant per
formances, the 1922 dedicaton con-
test with Ohio State at Columbus, paid
tribute to the ability of the Wolverine
by placing- him on his all-American
squal in the position of utility man,
the only time he has so honored any
player.
Cappon returns to Michigan after
serving as head coach of the Kansas
Jayhawks over a period of two years.
Disagreement with the director of
athletics at the Kansas instituton
and not failure to produce represen-
tative teams was the reason for his
resignation. Incidentally, Kansas was
the only Missouri Valley team to de-
feat Missouri, conquerors of the
Northwestern eleven.
Sanction Two-Team Plan
The second most important action
of the board in control of athletics,
of which Prof. Ralph Aigler of the
Law school is chairman, was the
official sanctioning of the two-team
plan adopted by the ig Ten directors
upon the instigation of President
Clarence Cook Littl. With the ac-
tion of the athletic body here it is
now absolutely certain that two Mich-
igan teams will appear on the field
every week end next football season,
and it is a probability, that other
branches of sports will also witness
two representatives.
*In approving the schedules drawn
up At the Conference meeting at Chi-
cago, the athletic board merely went
through a formality, but the recogni-
tion of fencing comes as _a climax to
almost 25 years of persistent effort
to produce such action.
Under Coach de Tuscan, formerly
champion of the Austrian army, Mich-
igan's foil, saber, and epee squad will
go through a season of preparation
for the Conference meet, scheduled
for March 9-10 at Chicago. A dual
meet with Ohio State is also listed
for Feb. 25.
