When two men are out to gain
possession of a single object and no
peaceful solution is in sight, they'll
fight for it, and that's exactly what
will happen in the Field House Fri-
day night when Indiana's Hoosiers
invade Ann Arbor for what promises
to be the toughest and hardest fought

These two 175-pound grapplers met
each other in the final round of the
Chicago Midwest Meet Dec. 10, and
with a brand new gold wrist watch
dangling over their heads ready to be
presented to the Xvinner, they lost no
time in shooting for a pin.
But evidently they hadn't reckoned
with each other's prowess. Early in
the match, Nichols clamped his arms
around his Indiana rival and almost
pinned the latter's shoulders to the
mat, but Traicoff suddenly remem-
bered the watch and decided that he
wasn't going to let it go that easily.
He broke Don's hold and the two went
along on terms until the official time
of nine minutes was up. They waded
into the overtime but no pin came.
The officials then took the matter
in hand and came to the conclusion
that the boys might just as well start

It was forwarded to me by the Editor of the Daily and presents an
open advocacy of professionalism in the Western Conference. The writers,
whose name I have been asked to withhold, represent one of the leading
dailies in the Conference. While. there is no evidence that the proposal
states the opinions of anyone but the staff of this paper, the questions
therein show a background, the likes of which few Michigan students can
boast. This proposal has gained support at one other Big Ten University4
and the backers have asked The Daily to join the movement.
Nov. 14, 1938
Dear Mr. Mitchell:
The question of football subsidization in inter-collegiate athletics
is one that has been probed by many college newspapers and magazines;
because of haphazard surveys and no concerted attempts, little has
been done to expose the situation or offer a substitute.
We of the - - - - - believe that the "secret" football subsidization in
the Big Ten under the guise of keeping football a strictly "amateur"
sport makes the Big Ten look ridiculous. We believe that much is to be
gained by bringing such subsidization into the open. Certainly foot-
ball players should'be paid-just as much as any college editor or class
president. Certainly the person who devotes every afternoon to being
mauled deserves some compensation other than the "glory of the grid-
iron." The undercover subsidization conducted by Big Ten schools
recognizes this fact. Athletic departments have little to lose and much
to gain by revealing the situation.
As an effective means of bringing football out into the open and
clearing up the dusky veil that now surrounds it, the - - - - proposes
that each college editor in the Big Ten conduct an investigation at his
school, to cover the following points:'
1. How are "athletic scholarships" administered? Who finances
them? How much money is available in aggregate? For each individual
player? On what basis are they awarded? What office controls them?
Are scholarships which are promised players as freshmen carried
through their four years?
2. Do athletes hold NYA (National Youth Administration) jobs?
Does the athletic department help its athletes obtain such jobs? What
are the athletic jobs offered by the department alone, according to
salary classifications, ($32 per month, $20 per month, etc.)? Where does
the money come from for these jobs? Do many athletes borrow from the
university for their jobs? If so, are they required to work a definite
number of hours per week?'
3. Is the athletic department an autonomous division of the uni-
versity? To whom is it responsible-President, Board of Trustees, Re-
gents, etc?
4. Is the university stadium paid for? If not, how much is the bonded
or mortgaged indebtedness? How much is paid off every year?
5. How many spectators does the stadium hold? What is the ap-
proximate gate receipts per season, and an average for each home game?
If concerted action of ALL Big Ten editors is attained, with a
definite purpose expressed, forcing an open-handed policy of athletic
aid in intercollegiate athletics, we believe that the results will be signi-
ficant in bringing about this change. The entire survey hinges on the
cooperation of EVERY editor in the Big Ten. Perhaps such a movement
can become nation-wide if given impetus by this key group.
What is your opinion of such a survey? Do you think it can accom-
plish its purpose? May we count on your participation?
On the basis of replies to this preliminary questionnaire the - - - - -
will determine whether it is advisable to continue the Big Ten survey.
We will keep you informed on developments. Please do not divulge these
plans until further notice.
May we have your early reply?

That's only one worry. Jim Rae is

Wolverines lost to Illinois and
whipped Northwestern.
Inaccuracy Hurts
Coach Oosterbaan took the Illinois
game as philosophically as possible.
"It's just basketball," he said. "One
team gets started and the other
doesn't, that's all there is to it. If
we had been at full strength there
might have been a different result."
That Michigan's inaccuracy hurt is
indicated by the fact that the Wol-
verines took 64 shots to Illinois' 51 but
the 30-20 score was against them.
"We missed a lot of shots," ruefully
admitted Oosterbaan. "Their de-
fense was good, yes, especially unde
