NOT AT ALL STRANGELY, the
course of human events continues
even during this paper's lapses in
publication. As a matter of fact, it1
is the common, although irreverent
opinion among the editors that the
Second Coming will occur on a Sun-
day or between semesters.
So it is that there are several events
of the past fortnight to be recounted
at this time.
Most important of the recent sports
news affecting Michigan is the lien
placed upon more than $22,000 of
Athletic Association funds by the
Federal Internal Revenue Depart-
ment for failure to pay a 10% Fed-
eral amusement tax on Michigan ath-
letic receipts for October and No-
vember (the football season, if you
The impounding of the Mich-
igan funds follows unsuccessful
suits by the government against
the Universities of Iowa and
Georgia on similar grounds. The
positions of the three state uni-
versities has been that a state in-
stitution cannot be made a col-
lecting agent for the federal gov-
The specific position of the Uni-
versity of Michigan was first stated
by Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, chairman of
the Board in Control of Physical Ed-
ucation, in his annual report for 1934-
35. The tax had been collected here,
the report said, despite the fact that
it was believed unconstitutional in
order to assist in the national emer-
gency. With the emergency appar-
ently become permanent, it was de-
cided before the 1935 season to refuse
to collect the tax.
In order to forestall the possibility
of successful litigation against the
Athletic Association, however, foot-
ball ticket prices were raised 10 per
cent to cover any liability incurred by
Next in importance is the an-
nouncement that the basketball
team will meet the University of
Washington during the 1936
Christmas vacation. Contracts
insuring Michigan of expenses
are understood to have been
signed. The cagers' trip follows
the 1935 trip to California by the
track team and is made possible
by the fact that there will be no
absence from classes.
From outside Ann Arbor the big-
gest news is the ouster by the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin Board of Re-
gents of Dr. Walter Meanwell as
director of athletics and Dr. Clarence
Spears as football coach. Immediate-
ly following the ouster the faculty
board in control was reported to have
resigned and latest news is that a
Big Ten committee may be called
upon to investigate the legality of
the Regents' action.
Ofwjustifiable pride to Michigan
followers is the announcement by the
University of Chicago that the Uni-
versities of Michigan and Illinois were
placed in preferential positions in
football relations, positions deter-
mined according to equality of scho-
lastic and athletic standards.
A story from Ann Arbor which
gained considerable attention was
the announcement that Frank
Bissell, Varsity gridder and wres-
tler, was leaving school for the
current semester to manage a
recently-inherited estate. Frank
has lately made it clear that the
estate, however substantial, does
not make him a millionaire and
that anyway, he hopes to be back
in the fall for football.
