The House Of Values *. *
THLETIC DIRECTOR FIELDING H. YOST, a master morale builder in
his coaching era, was one day recently explaining the virtues of athletics
and good coaching. He made constant references to a house of values and
principles which young men built during their undergraduate days and
which they inhabited 'til the string ran out. For a while his metaphor was
confusing, but laying his hand suggestively on his chest, he elucidatet:
"It's this house that you build as a young man ... this house that
you live in all your life ... from which you can't escape-ever. Your
coach helps construct it . .. is partially responsible for the results.
And the thing to ask yourself is whether you're going to be proud or
ashamed of it"...
Yost's truism was recalled to mind by confrere Disraeli's apt summation
in yesterday's Daily of Cappy's place in Michigan athletics. Cappy is, of
course, Basketball Coach Franklin C. Cappon, who doubles in brass as
assistant athletic director and member of the football staff. Everyone closely
associated with Wolverine sports knows him as just plain Cappy; Michigan
athletes address him as such with affectionate regard; it's a tag of intimacy
and -esteem.
Disraeli's appraisal of Cappy's "positive genius for making many
lasting friendships" is one drawn from a personal relationship in the
game of maim and mayhem sometimes naively referred to as inter-
collegiate football. And "Diz" had occasion to watch Cappy contribute
materials to the house that he (Diz) must henceforth inhabit.
Legions of other athletes, whether he served them as coach or admin-
istrator, subscribe to the Cappon methods of dealing with men. Youth
has a distinctive ability of piercing through a facade of tart, terse speech
and seemingly crusty mien, and Cappy never fooled them for a minute.
As an undergraduate, Cappy willingly accepted every assignment
Coach Yost gave him, whether it was at fullback, tackle or end.
and he turned in a first-rate job at each. Then as now, Michigan
was first and last among his sentiments. Yet, he was painted as the
villain of the recent football farce presented here because he had the
forthrightness and courage to speak, as always, in the best interests
of his alma mater.
Perhaps no better illumination could be cast upon his character than
these remarks made in private conversation by one of his basketball players:
"The guys would give their right arms for Cappy. We know what he's
been through, the football mess and all. And though we knew it pained
him in here, he'd covered it like a soldier, always remaining cheerful on the
trips and never once mentioning his troubles . . . He took the rap last year
with good grace, and even now when his status is almost as uncertain he's
as natural among us as ever."
Disconcerting Rumors . . .
MORE DISCONCERTING than anything that concerns Cappy
lately have been the reports in the East and elsewhere that Mich-
igan authorities were offering the athletic directorship as inducement
to candidates for the football coaching job. Yost retires in three years,
and the position will then he open. It is a strange offer to make in
view of the fact that Michigan has a man, its own, who as assistant
athletic director is thoroughly familiar with administration and the
peculiar problems it entails, a man who has the support and endorse-
ment of his lown men, past and present, and who not only deserves
campus tribute, as Disraeli recommends, but commands that tribute.
A plumbing of campus sentiment would reveal it. Yost's house of values
and principles depends, as does every structure, upon its foundation . .
