Conference Athletic Heads
Discuss Suggested Plan
CHICAGO, Dec. 2-()-Faculty
representatives and athletic directors
of the Western Conference went into
a huddle tonight to consider the pro-
posal of entering into an arrange-
ment with the Pacific Coast Confer-
ence for matching the football cham-
pions of thetwo organizations in the
Rose Bowl Game each winter.
It was possible that the Big Ten
group would limit its activity to infor-
mal discussion of the Rose Bowl ques-
tion, postponing any official move
toward adoption or rejection until a

Hutchins of the University of Chi-
cagoadvocating "ten cent football."
The question of tone ro-called
"training table" also was .t for dis-
cussion. It was suggested that uni-
vergities provide evening meals daily
to athletes during the competitive
season. This referred principally to
football players, who have in manya
instances been hard-pressed to get a
substantial dinner on campuses where
fraternity houses usually serve them
at 5:30 or 6 o'clock. Football prac-
tice usually lasts too long to permit
the athletes to go home to eat at1
that early hour.
The plan of supplying the eveninga
meal was approved last May at the
spring meeting of the conference, butt
because of technicalities involved in
changing the conference rules it did
not go into effect this fall.
With sufficient time elapsing forf
the filing of possible protests against
the proposal, the plan will be voted
on again. If carried, it would become

Football Busting ..
MICHIGAN PEPYS, the oblate Ox-
fordite, hustled into Detroit
Thursday night for the annual foot-
ball bust. Today he tells us about it.

BY MICHIGAN PEPYS
Tonight to the Detroit Alumni's
annual Football Bust, not the bust iti
has oft been of yore but a unique
No stereotyped bill of fare was
there, leaning upon rare roast
beef and hollow speeches for mild
success, but some 500 of us were
treated to a rare program be-
ginning with a lottery to put some
Detroit football player in the
University, climaxed by a more
than usually dynamic address by
one Fritz Crisler and garnished
by scintillating performances at
the lectern by a duo of Wallie's,
Weber and Hook.
Our dinner companion an affable
graduate of New York University who
has stood by the annual affair
throughout what he termed the "de-
pression years,' by virtue of annual
complimentary tickets, he added. It
was he who pointed out the signifi-
cant character of the assemblage,
some 300 greater than a year ago.
"A much younger crowd," he said,
drawing upon what he called a fa-
miliar law of direct relationship be-
tween winning football teams and
alumni interest, and concluding it
had been the Old Guard, naming a
Roscoe Huston, a Fred Matthaie and
a Doug Roby, that had carried the
show: during the lean seasons.
Mightily impressed by the vocal
and rhetorical powers of a Wallie
Weber, who reported on his freshman
football team, disdaining the use of
the public address system.
Utilizing certain New Deal sym-
bols as a key to his reinarks, he
reported: "We have no FHA, the
grams for 1939. The Western Confer-
ence Indoor Championships will be
held at the University of Chicago,
March 10 and 11, and the Outdoor at

Many times have I been impressed1
by the bearing. of Fritz Crisler, but'
never more so than tonight. As in
every situation, he was the master
here, now of tact, rhetoric and sprop-
erly qualified candor. There is a
man, at the top of his own profes-
sion, who could have reached the
heights in any undertaking. After
the dinner a conversation with a
former football player, whom I gath-
ered was of a group disgruntled by
some situation unfamiliar to me.
"When that man talks," said he, "I'm
captivated by the power of his per-
sonality. Then I begin to question his
sincerity. Then I give up. I know he
has everything, too much to be really
And the evening's highlight, an
appearance by one of the 10 sen-
iors who spoke, one Wallie Hook.
I've been convulsed by Will Rog-
ers, but even that wit had noth-
ing on this boy tonight as he be-
gan with a warning he "had his
rings and would now reveal all," '
and ended with the entire as- '
semblage weeping, with Fritz
Crisler, large tears of laughter. In
the words of the Gary sage, "He
was a pistol."
Much more, but enough for here.
For the record, the 2 a.m. riot call
to the ninth floor of the Statler was
of small consequence, the notable
absences of Fielding Yost and Harry
Kipke were covered by telegram mes-
sages of explanation and good wishes.

find the town in a near-frenzy of

not too high-in the Trojans of
U.S.C., the Rose Bowl representatives
of the Far West.
Unless the general aamission trade
is scared away by pre-game sell-out
rumors, something that has happened
in the past, Memorial Coliseum will
be teeming with 100,000 or more grid
fans tomorrow afternoon.
Tonight Notre Dame was on the
long end of 8-5 betting odds, and tak-
ers seemed easily located. The home-
town contingent has faith that its
Trojans will stop the Irish winning
streak of eight games.
Coach Elmer Layden announced he
would start the same eleven that went
in against Minnesota and Northwes-
tern, which means Steve Sitko, Bob
Saggau, Lou Zontini and Joe Thesing
in the backfield.
S.C.'s regular crew will go into im-
mediate action with one notable ex-
ception among the backs. Bob Hoff-
man, the best blocker and defensive
man/ on the squad, gives way to a
wobbly knee and Joe Shell at the
left halfback postion.
Thus Troy will have its triple-
threat star, Grenville Lansdell, and

Coach Lowrey Picks Tentative
\ Squad For McMaster Contest
As the first game, of this year's
hockey season approaches, Coach
Eddie Lowrey has found six men that
will resemble a Wolverine hockey
team when they skate onto the ice
Tuesday night at the Coliseium
against McMaster University of
After two hours of hard drill last
night it was quite apparent who
would fill in the forward wall posi-
tions. George Cooke, the fastest man
on the ice, will team up with Al
Chadwick and Ed Doran in the cen-
ter and at the two wings.
"Spike" James, who will force op-
posing forwards to use more skill in
an attempt to make a tally, will hold
down the goal position. As yet the
Iefense men remain undecided but
Calvert, Stodden, or Lovett will take
over the two back posts.
The six men that start the game
are bound to play more than a ma-
jority of the McMaster contest due
to the lack of sufficient reserves.
Although at times in practice the
reserves looked good, to balance this
equally their inexperience and lack of
true skating ability would come forth.
Les Hilberg, who started out in a
defense position, has been shifted
back to a forward post and around
him will be built the second line.
