Like a railroad train grinding out,'
"ileinie Manush to play today," your
shoes crunch across the frozen snow
and echo, "Who's going to be the new
Coach?" ' People stop you on the
street, as you try to hide within an
inadequate collar and concern your-
self with a 45 grade' in Pol. Sci. and
put the inevitable poser: "Who', go-
(ng to be the new coach?" And you
fight "off a phobia, for their manner
of asking suggests sarcasm, their tone
contempt. You're not asked because
they think you might have the "in-
side," but because they think you're
i wise guy, and if you're such a wisen-
heimer, they want to hear more.
And you can't tell them any
more. All you know comes from
the papers, which intimates to-
day that George Veenker is your
juan, tomorrow that Ray Mor-
Ison is it. You search for Field-
ing H. Yost, but he isn't around,
. arousing the suspicion that may-
be he's already on the hunt.
someone whispers that Professor
Aigler left for the East this
mtorning. You make no effort to
Check on the report, being in a
frame of mind of not caring
whether he has or hasn't. Any-
body's guess is a good one.
All this rumor that Friedman's
name is on the dotted line, or that
Dorais' appointment is all set except
for a minor salary adjustment, slants
off from some peculiar angles. For
example, you go to Philadelphia as
early as last November and learn
that Ray Morrison will be the next
coavh at Michigan, and the Quakers
,tell you about it with a knowing wink,
and you mumble to yourself an old
saw about being so close to the forest
you can't see" the *.trees. Morrison's
dame, it .occurred later, gained mo-
1-entum from a Philly newspaperman
who used .to, work in Ann Arbor and
heard it from "reliable" 'sources here.
Now Morrison, you read in the
'afternoon papers, is awaiting'
Michigan interviewers. And you
hear further that he isn't the
panacea Michigan seeks because
he's schooled in the "Michigan
tradition" of football, being a
protege of Dan McGugin, Yost's
brother-in-law, and thus not the
new blood needed. And for the
first time, you realize that foot-
ball systems, as well as blue eyes,I
big noses, run in the family.
!And while the merry battle rages,
:an AP report comes hurtling over the
teletype placing Ted Bank, a team-

against the Canadians in tonight's t
battle. The whole Michigan team1
was in excellent form against thea
Clubmen and emerged from the vic-f
tory in top physical shape.s
The line was clicking in fine shape
and the work of the defense showed
a great deal of improvement. Thea
forwards helped quite a bit in com-t

31 saves to his credit he would have
had a much tougher evening if it

Honor is at stake. Itinerant
Yankee Peddlers are preparing to
eave the Southland before they are
measured for a suit of tar and feath-
ers. Duelling pistols and fans are
getting oiled.
The pernicious rumor which has
Dixie riled up isn't discussed in front
of the women-folk. In strictly stag
affairs it causes strong men to turn
pale with rage.
Alabama, Gentlemen, Alabama is'
rated as under-dog (and smile when
you say that). The Yankee press
has intimated that there is a chance
that the mighty Crimson Tide might
lose when they invade the Rose Bowl
at Pasadena, Calif., New Year's Day
for the fifth time to play the Univer-
sity of California.
Undefeated Alabama, the team
with the heritage of three victories
and one tie in four trips to the Bowl,
the roster that once bore the im-
mortal names of John Mack Brown,
Dixie Howell, Don Hutson, Riley
Smith and countless others.
A man might as well believe that a
certain cigar chewing, ex-harness
salesman by the name of Grant
whipped Marse Robert in '65, that
Beauregard once had twoswivel
chairs shot out from under him.

small time to boo an opposing

you did Callahan, the Spartan
