Mitchell Interviewed
Ruth's Million
* *
SOME YEARS AGO several faculty
members on campus tried to sell
the rest of the faculty on expanding
of compulsory physical education for
men p'ast the one year basis that is
in force now. Although Fielding H.
Yost and others were behind the
movement the program is still lim-
ited to one year for men.
As the present system, in relation
to women, is now under fire, we in-
terviewed Prof. Elmer D. Mitchell,
head of the Intramural department
and an acknowledged authority on
this subject. It was under Mitchell's
development that the Intramural or-
ganization developed from a small
division of Michigan's athletics, to
one of the outstanding departments
in the United States. Several univer-
sities and colleges have put through
reorganizations in their own intra-
mural departments, based entirely
upon Mitchell's handiwork.
a So we asked him just why fresh-
man gym classes were compulsory.
He answered, "Compulsion should be
viewed as a temporary expedient to.
introduce the student to the oppor-
tunities that are offered him and to
give a groundwork in the tools that
will be needed for later self-direc-
He expanded the thought by
saying that in the matter of selec-
tion, physical education presents a
case similar to the other subjects of
the college curriculum. In general,
freshmen are not allowed entire lib-
erty of selection in other subjects.
Compulsory pre-requisites are neces-
sary before the electives may be
chosen, and even the electives are
restricted to a great extent by the
course in which the student is spe-
cializing, he pointed out.
Because of this formula in other
fields of college training, Mitchell
said that the privilege of selection in
physical education should follow on
the completion of a certain ground-
work of physical abilities and knowl-
edge. When a student comes from
high school well advanced in these
respects, he should be allowed lib-
erty of selection to a great extent
just as the student presenting ad-
vanced work in an academic course
is not compelled to repeat the basic
courses again, Mitchell reasoned,
We asked, "What would be the re-
sult of giving credit for physical edu-
cation, just as a student receives
credit for his beginning English
"If credit were given for physical
education, the attitude of the stu-
dents toward it would change imme-'
diately. Now it seems merely an extra
compulsion and the students natur-
ally argue for the advntages of
voluntary participation," he an-
When he was asked, "Is this edu-
cation of definite advantage to the
student?" he answered, "It is gen-
erally conceded that without health
the students who graduate cannot
use to best advantage the education
they have obtained or enjoy the
greatest possible happiness in their
He also stated that an interest in
recreative sports is today an abso-
lute necessity in view of the increas-
ing amount of leisure and the fact
that business or professional suc-
cess is assisted by the ability to
mingle easily with other people and
make contacts.
He continued, "This training sup-
plements the academic knowledge in
the education that produces the well-
rounded individual."
"For the best interests of the stu-
dent body, it is necessary that credit
be given and the program based upon
each student's abilities and inter-
ests," the Intramural official con-

BABE RUTH is aiming at the $1,-
000,000 mark with his big bat.

After totaling up his earnings as a
player at $785,900, the mighty Babe
has only $214,100 to make to bring
this total to the first-named figure.
On several occasions this winter
he has said that he had about two or
three years of first-class baseball left
in him. His salary for those two or
three years would not reach $214,100
but his earnings from newspaper
syndication, movie and theatrical en-
gagements, barnstorming tours, en-
dorsements, and world's series bon-
uses will go a long ways in raising
this amount of American dollars.

DeStefano Is


Wolves Sweep Through
Sabre And Epee Bouts
With Only One Loss
Slashing its way to victory after
ieck-to-neck start, the Michigan
encing team won its second meet
>f the year over the strong Detroit
rurnverein team, 11 to 6.
The beginning of the meet was
lrab. The first events on the card
mere th- foils matches, the Turners
;aking five out nine. In the first eight
'outs, the score was a tie, 4 to 4. but
;hen came the most thrilling match
>f the evening between Maas of
Michigan and Leverenze of the De-
troiters. Maas managed to get the
first four touchesand needed only
ne more for a victory, when Lever-
,nze began a gallant comeback, made
ive touches in a row, to win the
natch, 5 to 4, and put the Turners
nto the lead.
Win Sabre Events
However, the Wolverines swe t
;hrough the sabre events and won all
f them, making the score 8 to 5.
From then on, Michigan was never
headed. In the epee, Michigan took
three out a possible four, and won
the meet as a result.
Most astonishing was the showing
)f Michigan in the foils. Hitherto,
he Wolverines made decidedly poor
performances and last night also
lid not show anything remarkable
.n that field, but the results were bet-
;er than were expected. Maas was
the most outstanding of the foil
aandlers for Michigan and Lever-
anze for the opposition, each having
been victors in two out of three
:atches. An interesting meeing was
hat of Meyer (M) and Schmitters
(D), both left-handed, and won by
Meyer, 5 to 4 touches.
Winig Works Well
DeStefano of Michigan was the
star of the sabre events and of the
whole meet, having won both of his
:atches, one each from Hinchman
ind Leverenze. Although Little of
Michigan also won both of his bouts,
his victories were not as impressive
as those of the three-year veteran.
In theepee, Captain Winig of Michi-
;an, kept up his good work by win-
ning both matches. Merriman of
Vlichigan won his berth on the first
seam by capturing his only epee bout
against Crissman and thus pushed
off Nahrgang, who lost to Schmit-
ters. Merriman is a sophomore and
is expected to keep his position, al-
though Nahrgang started on the first
team early this season.
Alumni Defeat
Ann Arbor Hivh
In Overtime
Five points scored by Doug Nott
in the last seconds of the regular
game and overtime period account-
°d for Ann Arbor High school's first
Defeat of the year last night when
Ihe Alumni trimmed them 22 to 20.
Ferris Jennings, All-State football
quarter and basketball guard, was
the key man of a stubbornly fight-
2ng high school team, but he could
:ot turn his last scholastic game in-
to a win. He and Pete Pegan, high-
scoring forward who led his team
with nine points last night, will be
ineligible for second semester com-
Nott teamed up Bill Pegan, Pete's
brother, and Bob Mayfield, all 'for-
mer Purple and White stars who have
won places on U. of D. football and
basketball squads, to supply the
punch that upset the Taylormen.
Nott tied for individual scoring hon-
'ors with nine points.

The game was hard fought
throughout with frequent penalties
being called on both teams. The
high school team led 15 to 11 at the
half and 18 to 14 at the end of the
third period. They seemed to have
the game on ice with the score 20
to 17 with seconds to play when
Nott was fouled in the act of shoot-
ing. The basket was good and he
cashed in on the free throw.
The regular game ended with the
score 20 to 20 and Nott won his own
ball game when he bucketed one
early in the three-minute overtime

Buees 1Will resent Veteran
Team For 1933 Grid Title Race

When the Buckeye eleven from
Ohio State journeys to Ann Arbor
to avenge their battered honor next
Oct. 21, they will have at their serv-
ice a lineup composed of just about
the same number of veterans as the
Wolverines' aggregation.
Versatility would appear to be the
keynote of the members of the Co-
lumbus team, however. Men whoi
have played and starred for some
time at one post, according to the
latest reports will be playing entire=
ly new positions.
Vuchinich Goes To Center
The most surprising change is that
of Mike Vuchinich, who has been
starring as a plunging fullback for
the last two years. However, he isI
being converted into a center totake[
the place of Bob Smith, who grad-
uates in June.
Marsh Oliphant, a 11 -scholastic
quarterback on the O. S. U. freshman
team in 1930, is being groomed to
take Captain Hinchmnan's place a~tG
left halfback.
Despite a rather bad season at
quarterback, Carl Cramer is slated to
start again at the signal post nextf
fall. It must be said in his favor that
after the general shake-up Coach
Willaman gave the Bucks before the
Pitt encounter, he showed marked
As for the rest of the lineup as it

appears at this writing, only right
halfback is open to the coming soph-
omores. Beltz or Fisch are the prob-
abilities for this job.
In the line, Ohio State still has
Sid Gillman, rated by many as an
All-Conference end this year. Rose-
quist and Gailus, both veterans, will
play the right side of the line, and
Monohan, Conrad and Padlow, who
,have all seen action in Conference
and other important grid battles, will
take care of the left side.
Yearling Star Leaves
The captain and ace of the fresh-
man squad, Stan O'Neil, has left
school. An acknowledged triple-
threat star, his loss will be felt in -a
rather uncertain backfeld next year.
EStan Pincura, another. freshman
star, will be ready to help Cramer at
quarterback when relief is needed.
He is a clever strategist and an ex-
cellent passer, and can take a lot of
punishment without impairment to
his speed and strength.
Practice this spring may uncover
G some hidden talent. The freshman
line was good last fall, and Coach
Willaman will undoubtedly have a
wealth of substitute material to fall
back on if necessary..
