Ohio Governor Supports

Hiring Of Buckeye Football Stars

> -------

Most Of Team
Paid By State,
Executive Says
Gov. Davi Labels Football
As Supreme Purpose Of
Higher Education
Players Earn Pay
Eligibility Of Athletes Not
Endangered Is Rely Of
Athletic Director
COLUMBUS, O., Oct. 11.-(An)-
Gov. Martin L. Davey pictured foot-
ball today as "the supreme purpose of
higher education," and said that most
of the Ohio State University gridiron
squad is on the State pay roll.
James L. Renick, director of ath-
letic publicity at the University, said
14 of the 57 members of the football
squad were employed by the State.
Many of them have part-time jobs.
In a formal statement bristling
with sarcasm, the Governor made his
latest move to prevent the University
from winning legislative nullification
of a $1,266,500 cut he made in its
biennial appropriation.
His statement was prompted by
University officials' assertion that de-
pleted funds might force closing of
the school within 10 days and the
disclosure that such a shut-down
might force Ohio State to abandon
its hopes of winning Big Ten and
National football honors.
Earning Their Pay
L. W. St. John, director of athletics
at the University, said that players
on the State payroll "are working
for the money they receive and their
eligibility is not endangered."
Maj. John L. Griffith, athletic com-
missioner for the Western Confer-
ence, commented at Chicago that
"players are allowed to accept state
money if they work for it.'
Gov. Davey branded speculation on
possible disruption of the Ohio State
football season as "one of the most
amusing of all the frantic efforts
that have been made . . . . to build
up a gaunt spectre of a shutdown at
the University.
"As far as the football season is
concerned," the Governor said, "we
are all extremely interested in its
success. We recognize the fact that
football has become the supreme
purpose of higher education. We
certainly have done our part because
we have most of the football squad
on the State payroll, and we are ex-
ceedingly anxious for a most suc-
cessful season.
Has Welfare At Heart
"We want them to secure the
championship by all means, and have
co-operated to the fullest extent to
make this possible."
The Governor said he had no State
payroll, but had "approved one last
Davey's reference to Ohio State
football players on the State payroll
was the second instance in State ath-
letics which had received the atten-
tion of State officials.
Jesse Owens, University track star,
was employed as a page in the regu-
lar session of the Legislature. After
Owens had bettered three world rec-
ords and equalled another, represen-
tatives made him an honorary page
at $3 a day.
Speaker J. Freer Bittinger ordered
Owens' pay held up when he was in-
formed that the honorary position
might endanger Owens' amateur
standing. The American Athletic
Union at Cleveland studied Owens

case but postponed it indefinitely.
Mainly Varsity Members
Renick said that eight of the 14
football players employed by the
State are members of the Buckeye
first team. Several of the 14 are un-
der Civil Service, he said.
The controversy between the Gov-
ernor and the University began last
June 18 when Davey, in lopping $8,-
800,000 from the biennial State Ap-
propriation Bill, cut the University
budget from $7,155,600 to $5,889,100.

What Story Will It Tell After Today's Battle

All last year - week after week, at every home game with the excep-
tion of that gala day when Georgia Tech bowed before the Wolverines,
9-2, the electrical onlooker pictured above blazoned out its requiem for
the Michigan football team. This year 'dat ole ddbbil' scoreboard again
got off to a doleful start when the now-mighty Spartans spent last
Saturday afternoon teaching little offensive and defensive lessons to
Kipke's men.
Lets all hope that today the scoreboard will have reasons good and
true to change its dreary Beethoven to "The Victors."

Conference Opener: "Daily" were taken out early this
morning to the country club outside

Spectators at the Michigan sta-
dium this afternoon, viewing the
Conference opener between Indiana
and the Wolverines, will get an op-
portunity to see two teams that spe-
cialize in ultra-modern football,

Both elevens feature passing and
lateral plays that will stand com-
parison with any air attack in the na-
tion today. The Michigan team will
depend largely on the right arm of
Capt. Bill Renner. passer extraor-
dinary. Vernon Hufiman and Wen-
del Walker, two 190-pound backs,
do the passing for the Fightin' Hoo-
siers and can be depended upon to
turn in a satisfactory performance.
Most of Bo McMillin's plays are
designed to carry a trailer behind the
runner with the result that every play
is a potential lateral. Huffman is
especially proficient in the lateral
game. The Indiana quarterback has
an annoying habit of turning his
back to the tackler, presumably for
the purpose of allowing the trailer
to finish the play via the lateral.
However, this has its drawbacks for it
makes it impossible for Huffman to
dodge the tackler.
Roy Eads, left half back, and Cor-
bett Davis, fullback, complete the
backfield. Eads is the blocker of the
foursome and carries the ball on re-
verses. Davis plunges, of course, and
backs up the line along with Capt.
Reed Kelso on defense.
The punting is filled by Huffman
who is labeled a triple threat man
by the Indiana publicity department.
His kicks are end over end but de-
pendable. Sleepy Fowler, sub half,
is a better kicker and will probably
see action today.
McMillin uses a complicated system
using five or six different backfield
formations including the Z, Notre
Dame, and double wing back. The
Z type is the favorite and is used
behind an unbalanced line.
The place kicking is done by Kelso,
who is rated as one of the best in
the country. In a practice session at
Bloomington this week he made 74 in
a row before Coach McMillin stopped
