Professionalism, Subsidization
Denounced In Board's Report

difficulties, it has already become
increasingly evident that the former
group is not finding it desirable to
schedule games with those of the lat-
ter. Let the professional and semi-
professional teams play among them-
selves, and when mythical champion-
ships are being awarded and ratings
made, those college teams made of
"scholarship" holders and the like
shoud be grouped with the Giants,
Redskins, Lions, Bears, etc., instead
of being listed with those teams made
up of bona fide college students to
whom athletic participation must be
secondary. It would turn the spot
light upon those professionals, too,
if they were declared ineligible for
competition like that on the Olympic
teams and in the meets sponsored
by National Collegiate Athletic Asso-
Same Goes For Football
The board here recommends that
a similar institution be set tip for
football, and adds that "the stigma
attaching to an institution that did
not belong to such national group
could not long be endured, as has been
well demonstrated in many related

athletic teams are made up of regular-
ly enrolled college students, who not
only have had to comply with the
University's rigid requirements for
admission, but who have demonstrat-
ed their capacities for doing college
work by completing one full year of
clear college work. It must be re-
membered, also, that members of the
so-called Western Conference, must
have no delinquencies in studies out-

at Michigan at least is deemed to be
delinquent in his studies if his record
is below that which if continued on

just the same as other students do.
It is true that a considerable per-
centage of our athletes are, in part
at least, self-supporting, but their
jobs are prosaic indeed. They are
typified by waiting on table, washing
dishes, etc., for which they receive
compensation at the same rate paid
to Phi Beta Kappas."
The financial aspects of the report
may be summed up as follows: "The
football income for'/the fall of 1938 is
approximately $90,000 larger than
during the fall of 1937. One hundred
bonds, totaling $50,000 have already'
been drawn for payment, and of
course the $30,000 in notes owing the
banks has also been paid" .
"against a net reduction in indebted-
ness of about $14,000 during 1937-38,
there will be a reduction of at least
$80,000 during 1938-39" . . . Gross
receipts derived from home football
games amounted to $297,265.03 as
compared with $252,927.11 in 1937
and $703,078.50 in 1927, the all time
high . . . Lowest return was in 1934
when only $128,660.92 was made . .
Only Football Pays
Football was the only sport in
which receipts exceeded disburse-
ments, the difference being $120,534.13
(year ended June 30, 1938) . . . Of
$205,607.62 of receipts $192,618.10
came from football . . . Attendance
for -the 1938 season was 392,583 as
compared with 283,767 in 1937 (in-
cludes all eight games) . . . Despite
'the fact that receipts had increased
$20,000, the operating profit shrank
from $81,297.50 in 1936-37 to $57,-
540.27 in 1937;38 . . . Reason: drop
in broadcasting receipts of $8,000,
wage increases, increase in traveling
expenses, and due to the fact that
for part of the year two coaching
staffs were on the payroll.

Officials Are Picked.
For Boxing Show,
Congress, independent men's or-
ganization, yesterday announced the
list of officials for the boxing show,
to be held in Yost Field House on
Jan. 17.
Johnny Johnstone of the Intra-
mural Department will act as referee,
Marty Levandowski, I-M boxing in-
structor has been chosen as time-
keeper, while Matt Mann, jovial
swimming coach will perform the
duties of announcer. Vern Larsen,
freshman ring coach is collaborat-
ing with Lewandowski as promoter
and matchmaker. Judges will be
picked later in the week.
Price of tickets is 25 and 75 cents
and they may be obtained at the
Union, the League, Wahr's Book
Store, Moe's Sport Shop, the Pretzel
Bell, Preketes Sugar Bowl, and Ul-
rich's Book Store. They may also be
procured from members of the Con-
gress executive committee.
There will be 10 bouts in all and
proceeds of the show will go towards

tempted to high stick his way through
the Wolverine defense. He failed in
his effort but before being stopped I
he had removed two teeth from Lar-
ry Calvert's mouth.
Despite this mishap Calvert fin-
ished the game and will be on hand
with Capt. Les Hillberg for 60 minutes
of playing in the two defense posts.
In the goal will be "Spike" James
who in last Saturday's contest turned
in a performance which will be hard
to match by any other goalie who
plays in the Coliseum. As usual the
starting Michigan line will have Ev
Doran at center, and George Cooke
and Al Chadwick at the wings.
The reserve line will be composed,
of Burt Stodden, Jim Lovett, and
Charley Ross. Although this latter
combination has found it difficult to
make a tally, the opposing teams have1
had an equally hard time in scoring
against this sophomore forward line.
Fred Bibbings will be in the goal
for the London squad while Hodgson,
and Sane take over the starting de-
fense posts. Sapthorne, Legg, and
McFadden compose the remaining
opening sextet.
Backing up this team the visiting.
players will have an equally power-,
ful secondary team. Barrett and
Foskett take over the two back posts
while Lane, Shaw and Butler fill in
on the forward line.
Saturday night the Wolverines will
meet Illinois at Champaign for their
first Conference game of the season.

There is a newspaper clipping hang-
ing up on the bulletin board of the
I-M swimming pool with the head-
line "United States Losing Grip On
Swimming Superiority." The story
goes on. with the information admit-
tedly coming from a well known east-
ern swimming coach, to paint dark
tinted pictures for the 1940 Olympics.
The writer asserts that the United
States can claim superiority in only
one event, the backstroke, and that
the American swim squad could look
only for seconds or worse in 1940.
Matt Disagrees
The clippings roused Matt Mann's
ire. "It gets me good and mad," he
said. "They might just as well send
out obituary notices about our swim-
ming chances. After all, we've got
thbe pools, we've got the coaches and
we've got the swimmers with the will
to win. If the coaches can't do any-
thing about combining these factors

Indiana Friday
Three Weights Undecided
For Hoosier Match

Michigan's wrestling team, Big Ten
title-holders, entered its last week of
practice yesterday before the opening
meet of the year with.the high-flying
Indiana Hoosiers this Friday night.
The Wolverines' representatives in
three weight classes still remain in
doubt and further tryouts will be
stage'd in the next two days to deter-
mine who will get the call to fight it
out with the invading Hoosiers.
Tom Weidig and Chuck Reinsch,
sophomores, and Don Rivette, a jun-
ior, are all ;aspiring to start at 121
pounds and thus far Weidig, who has
shown himself to be a'real fighter, has
an edge on his rivals.
The situation at 155 pounds /still
leaves the starter an unknown quant-
ity. Ralph Turner, Ann Arbor sopho-
more, and Rex Lardner, a senior, have
emerged as the most likely looking al
their weight. Lardner has shown E
disappointing lack of aggressiveness
in. recent practices, but yesterda3
found himself and nearly pinned Tur-
ner in a lively eight-minute match,


The two.boys will be re-matched to-
day or tomorrow in a regulation en-
At 165 pounds,. Frank Morgan,
"Knobby" Knobloch and Art Bennett
have been fighting it out with the
veteran Morgan showing the way.
Knobloch and Bennett will be
matched this week and the winner
must beat out Frank to get the nod.
A knee injury to Dick Tasch, two-
letter man who could fill in ably at
either 165 or 175 pounds, has slowed
him down in his efforts to challenge
at the two weights, but if he comes
around .by meet time he may be a
surprise starter for the Wolverines.
Forrest "Butch" Jordan, heavy-
weight, Don' Nichols, 175-pounder,
Capt. Harold Nichols at 145, Jim
Mericka at 136, and Andy Sawyer at
128; ally stand ready to meet the on-
slaughts of the Indiana crew in the
Wolverines' biggest wrestling match

then they shouldn't bewail their lack
of material."
The article went on to rank the
leading intercollegiate swimmers for
1939 with Wolverines Tomski, Haynie,
Haigh, Benham and Ferstenfeld all
well mentioned. But the international
rankings for the coming year listed
only Kalsey of the Wolverines plus
only a few other Americans.
Dozen Possibilities Here
"Here we've got 18 months in which
to build up a team and some of them
are quitting before they start," con-
tinued Matt. "They ought to do their
figuring on water instead of on paper.
"Why right here at Michigan we've
got nearly a dozen possibilities for
the Olympic squad. Who are they?
Well, there's Ed Kirar, Jack Kasley,
Jim Welsh, the two Sharemets.
Oh yes, there's Tom Haynie. Why
he's practically a cinch for the team.
Hal Benham is going to be right up
there. You've got to figure Walt Tom-
ski and Ed Hutchens. We're almost
sure to have four, maybe six going
to Finland next year."
"And incidently, all of these kids
except Kasley will be swimming in
the State A.A.U. meet here Friday.
ff there are any of our coaches who
want to whine ahead of time about
1940, why don't they drop around
Friday and see some typical material.
Then maybe they'll stop their sob-
bing and start building.
"Yes sir, it makes me good and
Smad ."
