of the junior sports staff who are
applying for the position of sports
editor for the coming year. Today's
column is written by Herm Epstein,
who has been covering varsity track.)
Coach, Modern Style...
We were in our favorite drug store
Sunday night, and having many bet-
ter things to do, proceeded to read
the first sports story magazine we've
read in years. There was one story
on our favorite sport, track, so we
ran through it. It was about a griz-
zled veteran coach who, true to the
fictional idea of a coach, was trying
in his enigmatic manner to build
the characters of his rich-man's-
son and across-the-track mile stars
by playing them against each other
in some ill-defined way.
He did it, of course, though
the reasoning was too involved
for us. But, the point that struck
us was the difference between
that man and Michigan's own
varsity track coach who was at
that moment, and is at this mo-
ment, lying ill in a Des Moines
Michigan is extremely fortunate
in the competence of its coaches,
much more fortunate than most of
us realize. And the man who typi-
fies what we think the coach of the
future should be is Ken Doherty,
though we select him only because
we know him better than the others.
It is his kind of coach who will, in
the not-far-distant future, be at the
reins of the nation's and the world's
Doherty has no esoteric formula
for building character; he doesn't,
we think, even attempt to build
character at all. That seems to be
the right way, for a coach is busy
enough building the bodies of his
men without taking time off to wres-
tle with anything as intangible as
The new kind of coach is a
scientist-coach. If we were writ-
ing a philosophy paper, we'd call
him somewhat of a practical
philosopher. If a philosopher can
be defined as one who cogitates
about everything that men have
learned and tries to coalesce it
into a harmonic whole, then
someone who applies his all-
around philosophy of science to
human beings is a practical
This scientist-coach is a student.
Take the record of Michigan's track
coach: American decathlon cham-
pion in 1928, he represented the
United States in the Olympics at
Amsterdam and finished third. That
gave him the all-around experience
that seems to be the sole recommen-
dation of most coaches at the pres-
ent time. But, then we find a bache-
lor's degree in physical education;
then a master's degree; and this
year Doherty finished the course
work for his doctor's degree and
began work on his thesis. Here is
a coach still attending school more
than ten years after getting his first
degree, and planning to take eight
more hours in summer school this
Among the courses he's taken
are studies in physiology, and
some medicine, but in addition
there is work in chemistry, 9i1y-

Herbert Orrin (Fritz) Crisler said
late last night that as far as he

the week but will return after that
to resume his duties. "There isn't
any foundation, as far as I know,"
Crisler continued, "to the rumor that
Stackhouse will take over,"
Stackhouse corroborated in every
respect, Crisler's denial. "The rumor
is absolutely unfounded and unfor-
tunate," Stack said. "Mrs. Doherty,
who left for Des Moines Sunday
morning, wired back that Ken was
resting well and would remain there
for the rest of the week. Of course,
he may continue to recuperate while

Unless rainy weather sets in to
change his plans, Ernie McCoy, new
addition to Michigan'scoaching staff,
will put his freshman baseball squad
through a week of prolonged drills,
topped off by a gaine with the Phys
Eds on Friday.
Last Friday the squad went through
its longest workout of the season as
it played a seven inning game, in
which the Mudcats took a 3-0 deci-
sion from the Alley-Rats. Jim Sears,
first basemian, led the victors' batj
ting attack as he garnered two
doubles and a single out of three
times at bat.
Pitchers Tom Neatherton, varsity
reserve, and Lefty Ernie Schultz div-
ided the hurling chores for the Mud-
cats. The latter was particularly im-
pressive as he chucked hitless ball
during the three innings in which
he worked.
McCoy has nearly completed his
task of pruning the squad down to 18
men. With an outfit of this size he
hopes to be able to develop some
promising material for next year's
varsity, and to spend more time witht
the best-looking candidates.

ing one of the most important to
the leaders in this world. This
practical philosopher is not, as
is the pure philosopher, apart
from humans as he plies his
trade. If he errs, a human being
suffers, so his knowledge re-
quires a more practical under-
standing of human nature and
its reactions.
The coach's task is building a
strong container to carry the essence
of our personality and experience
through life, and a task like that
requires a scientist. Healthy bodies
are, in general, requisite to healthy
minds, whereas the most stupid of
persons can live happily and health-
ily in their surroundings.
Anyhow, we were struck with the
thought that we wouldn't want our
son to be trained by that grizzled,
character-building coach but would
infinitely prefer a man of the Do-
herty type-a scientist who is spe-
cializing in building healthy men.
And, that's the kind of a man a
coach should be, so we believe.

How to read a love letter

I.. I5



~~2gi&ed I 8' '8

IS YOUNG MAN has just received his first love
letter. He may have already read it three or four
times, but he is just beginning. To read it as
accurately as he would like would require several
dictionaries and a good deal of close work with a
few experts on etymology and philology.
However, he will do all right without them.
He will ponder over the exact shade of meaning of every
word, every comma. She has headed the letter "Dear John".
What, he asks himself, is the exact significance of those words?
Did she refrain from saying "Dearest" because she was bash-
ful? Would "My Dear" have sounded too formal?
Jeepers, maybe she would have said "Dear So-and-So" to
A worried frown will now appear on his face. But it dis-
appears as soon as he really gets to. thinking about the first
sentence. She certainly wouldn't have written that to anybody!
A ND SO HE WORKS his way through the letter,
one moment perched blissfully on a cloud, the next
moment huddled miserably behind an eight-ball.
It has started a hundred questions in his mind. He
could quote it by heait. In fact, he will-to him-
self - for weeks to come.
If people read books with anything like the same
concentration, we'd be a race of mental giants. But
we don't - and we aren't. And it's unlikely that
even the greatest book can be read with the same
intensity and devotion to detail the young man
above has employed in reading his first love letter.

Yet most of us could read books a lot better than we do.
In fact, very few people really know how.
Which is nothing to be ashamed of - we were simply noi
taught how in schools. We were taught only how to read
words, and reading books is an altogether different thing.
SINCE TIHE wORDS "so what?" are probably trembling on your
lips, a book has just been published which actually does show
how - Mortimer J. Adler's How To Read a Book. You have
probably heard of it. And possibly you've thought that there
isn't anything you can be shown on the subject-that anyone
who is over eight and not cutting out paper dolls can read a
If so, you'll be interested in what Clifton Fadiman, "The
New Yorker's" book critic and M.C. of "Information,Please!",
has to say about it in his "New Yorker" c6lumn: "I wish to
recommend this book to all literates who would like to learn
to read. From How To Read a Book I have actu-
ally learned how to read a book."
SO HAvE a great many others. Ever since publi-
cation more than a thousand people a day have
bought themselves copies. Nobody has asked if a
new publication would be issued called fHow To
Read low To Read a Book-because it's so clear
and helpful by itself. It is a book 'for all of us who
know we didn't learn enough at school or college.
And for all of us who would like to make great
e books as much a part of ourselves as we did the
first love letter we ever received.

The smart new Summer Tux of spun
rayon is full- lined. Cool-looking and
cool-feeling, it doesn't need pressing
every time you turn around.
