PRESS PASSES,
By BUD BENJAMIN
PRIVATE SIGHTS OF A PUBLIC SIGHTSEER:
The pros are after Ralph Heikkinen, but he thinks he'll carry out his
plans and go to law school . . . So far Heik has made the first team of
practically every ail-American squad . . . Included are International News
Service, Harry Grayson (N.E.A.), New York Daily News-Chicago Tribune
Syndicate (114 sports writers), Central Press Association, Paramount News,
Hearst Movietone News and Hearst papers, and Fox Movietone News .
Still to be heard from are the important selections of the Associated Press,
the United Press, Grantland Rice, and the all-American Board (Christy
Walsh) . . This column has no desire to serve as an employment agency,
but if anyone should know of a good board job, please give us a buzz . . .
There's a particularly deserving athlete who needs a break . ' . Tragedies
like Monte Stratton's are the kind of thing that make fatalists of one . . .
There are plenty of writers who will tell you that Pitt's seven seniors lost
the old go-go last Saturday . . Three years of it is apt to dampen the
inspiration W.. . Why doesn't one of those campus charitable organizations
promote a boxing show at the Field House at two bits a head? . . .'There is
a definite interest in the game here and plenty of latent talent itching to get
some action . . . And then there's the old story about the tremendous gate
receipts at Wisconsin ... Might be worth investigating.

Six Bowl Bids
Are Accepted
Carnegie Tech Will Meetx
T.C.U. InSugar Bowl
The post-season football market
did a thriving business Tuesday when
six top teams announced their ac-
ceptance of invitations to play in
four intersectional "Bowl" contests
on Jan. 2. The acceptances followed
closely on the selection of Duke and
Southern California yesterday as riv-
als for the Rose Bowl classic at Pasa-
dena. Calif.
The latest additions to the list of
"Bowl" combatants were: Texas
Christian and Carnegie Tech, Sugar
Bowl at New Orleans; Tennessee and
Oklahoma, Orange Bowl at Miami,
Fla.; Texas Tech, with no rival named
as yet for the Cotton Bowl at Dallas,
Texas, and New Mexico, also looking
for an opponent for the Sun Bowl at
El Paso, Texas.
Four of the six are unbeaten and
untied-T.C.TJ, Tennessee, Oklahoma
and Texas Tech-and three of the
four still have a game each to play.
Tennessee, champion of the South-
eastern Conference, has Mississippi
to dispose of on Saturday, while Okla-
homa, Big Six title winner, and Texas
Tech have engagements the same day
with Washington State and Centen-
ary, respectively.
Texas Christian and Tennessee,
while they have accepted bids, must
await final approval of their action
by the other members of their con-
ferences. In each case, however, this
is regarded as a mere formality.
Holy Cross was being sought as the
opponent for Texas Tech in the Cot-
ton Bowl, with Utah, champion of
the Rocky Mountain Big Seven, the
leading candidate for the Sun Bowl
game with New Mexico meanwhile.
New York promoters, because of poor
weather conditions, postponed until
next year their plans for an "Eastern
Bowl" game

TOM McCANN, head trainer at Sid-
ney Hill in Detroit, passes the
word on that Willie Heston came in
for a checkup a while back, and that
he's fit as a fiddle . . . "Arms like a
blacksmith," says Tom, "and his legs
are still good. I checked his heart,
lungs, and blood pressure, and he's
tip-top" . . . Heston is the Michigan
football immortal of the early part of
the century . . . At a marathon
punting exhibition at Sarnia Athletic
Park, one Hugh "Bummer" Stirling
blasted 90 and .81 yard boots (includ-
ing the roll) . . . His best effort went
75 yards in the air and rolled 16,
more . . . And they report he was
wearing new football shoes . . . The
Finns, who took over the '40 Olym-
pies after Japan decided that theyf

were too busy civilizing China from
the air to hold the games, made in-
tensive climatology studies before
choosing July 20 to August 4 as the
dates . . . In view of the fact that
one dependable- place kicker would
have meant an undefeated season and
a Big Ten title for Michigan this year,
it is interesting to note that Der
troit's one point victory over Santa
Clara was the doings of a former
Ann Arbor High School star . . .
The Titans took little Nick Pegan,
reserve halfback, along 'just in case,'
and it was Nick who booted the win-
ning 'extra point . . . Tom Harmn n
was kept busy posing for the camera
man for 10 minutes when he reported
for basketball Monday . . . He way
an all-stater at Horace Mann in
Gary.

ROBERT M. HUTCHINS, president of the University of Chicago, strikes
at "Gate Receipts and Glory" in this week's Saturday Evening Post . .
Notable quotes: "The trouble with football is the money that is in it, and
every code of amateurism ever written has failed for this reason" . .
"Athleticism is not physical education but sports promotion." . . . "Young
people who are more interested in their bodies than in their minds should
not go to college" . . . "Athleticism does not contribute to the production\
of well-rounded men destined for leadership after graduation." . . . "Con-
sider what Tex Rickard could have done for Harvard" . . . "I am rapidly
approaching the retirement age, and I can think of no worthier successor,
from the standpoint of athleticism, than Mr. Mike Jacobs" . . . "Athletic-
ism like crime does not pay" . . . "The task of taking money out of athletics
must be undertaken by those institutions which are leaders",. . . "I suggest
that a group of colleges and of universities composed, say, of Amherst,
Williams, Dartmouth, Harvard, Yale, Chicago, Michigan, Stanford, and
California agree to take following steps" . . . "1. Reduce the admission tW
ten cents" . . . "2. Give the director of athletics and the major coaches
some kind of academic tenure, so that their jobs depend on their ability
as instructors and their character and not on the gates they draw." . .
Thought for the day: Our red badge of courage, which Tuure Tenander
mentions so often, goes to those courageous lads who write the compli-
mentary notes on the board and sign another's name . . . What a rare
intestinal fortitude it must take to actually tell a person to his face what
you whisper behind his back.
