Please, Mr. Athletic Board!
OR peace of mind and the privacy
of our boudoir, we beseech Michi-
gan's athletic board to hasten the
announcement of its new football
coach as we can't hold out much long-
er. Being buttonholed on the street
by inquisitive people never really
bothered us, for we could feign total
ignorance and review an elementary
French course in the same breath with
a "Je ne sais pas." Reading letters, re-
markable for their sameness, re-
quired but little time and wasn't par-
ticularly irksome. Appeasing the
sharp curiosity of friends at "602"
was sometimes a task, but by hastily
encouraging a "barber shop" siesta
we could easily divert them. But,
gentlemen, when our sanctum sanc-
torum is invaded, we feel sufficiently
justified to appeal to you publicly and
confess shamefacedly that we've
reached the end of our rope.
Last night, a horrible night-
mare assailed us, and unable to
attach a Freudian concept to it,
we could divine only one thing:
COACH. We don't want to talk,
honestly. But when we're har-
ried in our sleep by grisly, grue-
some ghosts, we're tempted to
give up those ghosts and blurt
out our secret pronto. Hooded
wraiths with brown, clammy
hands flitted through our room
. driving nails into an ominous
looking scaffold. .. wheezing as
a man with asthma...
They bound our hands with the
bedsheet and used the pillow slip for
a gag . .. strapped us on a vertical
board 'and tenderly stroked our
cheeks with their cold, moist hands
. No one spoke . . . The Stygian
darkness grew awesome with silence
but the stroking continued .
Suddenly, one yanked the gag from
our mouth, almost jerking a molar
with .it . . . And in frightening uni-
son, with their lavender-hued fin-
gernails jabbing our jugular, shrieked:
Fear, gentlemen, almost caused
a breakdown, but ever stoical,
we kept our yap shut and hoped
for a hairbreadth harry rescue.
Then we began to quiver with such
volcanic force that a seismograph
in the roam would have gone
completely haywire. "Get up,
Stum! Get 'up," someone rasped.
It was Roomie Larson, pounding
us on the back with a coat han-
So you see, gentlemen, this thing
may develop into a phobia of some
sort. And with exams coming on,
we'll need every mental resource, if
any. We don't want to appear sud-
denly weak and arouse suspicions
that we might reveal our secret, but
the end's in sight unless something
drastic is done immediately. Maybe
you could just hint the new coach's
name and relieve us of our burden.
We ask you with honest reverence,
save us from these horrendous ap-
paritions. And please hurry, for to-
night they're liable to bring the Sha-
dow with 'em. And then what ? ? ?
Blackhawks Purchase

Almost Scores A Self-Knockout

Bishop stepped back to avoid it. This

On the other side of the picture
Michigan has the best defensive rec-
ord. The Wolverines' opponents
have been able to garner only 29.3
points per game. At the other ex-
treme the Chicago squad's adversaries
have been able to mark 50.3 times on
the average.
Average defensive record for all
schools is 37 points.
All of this simply goes to prove
that the elimination of the center
jump has not speeded up the game to
any appreciable degree. A few scores
have been high, but usually this has
only occured when both squads lacked
