Wolverines All But Out
Inability to make its dogs count
and a woeful display of shooting from
the field spelled defeat for the Wol-
verines. And, of course, the presence
of an inspired, determined Hawkeye
quintet didn't help much.
The Wolverines still cling to that
slim thread of hope that upsets among
other Big Ten fives might elevate
them back into the race. Minnesota
and Wisconsin play here this week-
end, and neither are soft touches by
any means. It means a grinm struggle
for recognition.

after he succeeds to Yost's posi-
tion. "That would be much too
hard a job," he said.
Crisler had a difficult time making
n his mind whether to go or stay,
but he says tvo Michigan students
ayed a part in his decision. One
vas a boy whom he saw standing on
i street corner in Miami during
Christmas vacation. He was holding
a sign saying "University of Michi-
-an." The Crislers picked him up
and took him to Atlanta, since he
was broke and already three days
late for classes. On the way they
pumped him as to what he thought
about the football situation at Mich-
igan and the prospective new
^oaches, but they let him out without
ever telling him their name.
Last week Crisler went out to Ann
Arbor, and coming back on the train
he was seated next to a girl who was
going hom for a short vacation in be-
tween semesters. The conversation
was steered around to football by
tactics which he considered very
skillful. He asked her what she
thought of the coaches being men-
tioned for the job, and finally she
got around to Fritz Crisler of Prince.,
ton. "When she finished with me,"
he ruefully admits, "any shred of
vanity I might have had was coil-
pletely destroyed." He wasn't as clev-
er as he thought though, for sudden-
ly - she looked at him intently and
asked, "Say, you can't be Fritz Cris-
ler, can you?" When he admitted
shame-facedly that he not only could
be, he was, she blushed 10 shades of
red and hastily excused herself to
take another seat.-
Those two Michigan students don't
know it yet, but they're going to be
invited to the Crisler home for din-
ner just as soon as they get settled
in Ann Arbor. "I think they ought
to get to know each other," he re-
marked with a grin.
If Crisler does present Michigan
with some winning teams he will
certainly qualify for the degree of
F.T.S.-Football Trouble Shooter.

now at Michigan. Football had been
