Robins may herald the advent of
The snows may turn into rains;
But the harbinger to me
Is the turbulent spree
Of the Gypsy blood in my veins.
The Coffin Closed ...
ence Munn as line coach, Head
Coach Fritz Crisler has driven the last
nail into the coffin of "Michigan foot-
ball." Cappon, Oosterbaan and We-
ber have been displaced by Munn,
Campbell Dickson and Earl Mar-
tineau-two Minnesotans and a Chi-
cagoan. The first trio grew and ma-]
tured in the Michigan tradition, and
with the exception of Cappy, who
spent some time at Luther College
and Kansas University, spent their
formative coaching years in the Wol-
verine fold. Still young men, they're
only beginning, but right now they're
intensely curious about their future.
And they should know their status
within a week. This man Crisler
seemingly doesn't haggle, and works
with assuring dispatch.
The statement that Munn will
be employed in the athletic de-
partment on a full-time basis
rakes our faculties of conjecture.
Since Dr. Sharman left the Phys-
ical Education -shool, his posi-
tion' has been vacant. Perhaps,
Elmer Mitchell, head of the In-
tramural Department now, will be
transferred to the campus, where-
upon Munn would replace Mit-
chell in the I-M dept.
An aside line anent Munn: When
lie was an All-American guard at
Minnesota, he played a loose style
of game, and Michigan figured out a
play whereby ie would be the vic-
tim of a ruse and drawn out of posi-
tion to pave the way for an offensive
smash. It was called the "Munn spe-
cial," but to the Wolverines' disap-
pointment, it didn't work. Munn was
too smart.
Beebe Opines . .
LEO BEEBE'S classic description o
the basketball team after a dis-
astrous weekend at Iowa and Illinois
is perhaps the best way to dismiss
the double tanning. Riding up from
the local depot, the boys passed a
hearse going in the other direction.
"A funeral going each way," whined
Coach Cappon makes no at-
tempt to explain the losses. "They
had an eight-point lead with
three minutes to go at Illinois.
Instead of playing smart and
holding on to the ball, they took
chances. If they had played safe,
that one was a cinch. I sent a man
in with those instructions, but
they kept going."
And now to complete the schedule,
the Wolverines mee Nor thwestern

son optimism, several prophets vn-

the outcome of the title race. But
