The Bogey Man...
The generation and explosion of
football subsidization at Pittsburgh
tnlersity "i' 'expounded in this
'week's issue of the Saturday Evening
Post in Francis Wallace's second of a
series fo two articles."
The incidents were extremely
interesting b6eeause the 'same con-
ditiis, at any other 1niversity
in the country, ar e likely 'to meet
the same enid result But the ex-
'pose 'begins strike a little close
to home when the Big Ten is
meiftI'ffedquite- frequently (and
"ot"toio farorbly in most cases).
Without eomimentfg editorially
6W, any of Wallace's statements,
We'd like 'to present a few aertin -
ent eIcer ts from the story. Our
own ''ipfion ill -come in a few
weeks "
First, and least important in its re-
lation to subsidization in the Big Ten,
was the opinion that the Big Ten was
to be used as a measuring stick for
the degree of payment to be made to
athletes at Pitt. Major John Grif-
fith, 'Western- Conference athletic
commissioner, in 'a precedent-break-
ing step, had agreed "to add the Pitt
campus to his regular police beat."
This announcement came simul-
taneously with arr alumni committee's
report which was smothered by this
more sensational Big Ten news. "The
athletic -faction 'was especially en-
raged because the Big Ten tie-up was,
in effect, an ambush. The pro-foot-
ball faction had laboriously built a
case that 'Pitt was deflating its ath-
letics' to a point where the Panther
would not be able to compete with
-major rivals on even terms. Since
such 'major rivals as Minnesota and
Ohio State were being added to the
schedule after the adoption of the
Code Bowman, brainchild of Pitts-
burgh's chancellor who favored ath-
letic purification, there seemed, sud-
'denly, no 'sense to the charges against
the administration.
"Ohvioh sly,'if Pitt were going to de-
flate only to the level of the Big Ten,
there would 'be no drastic deflation.
(Ed. Note' At that time Pittsburgh
was probably the outstanding North-
ern example of professionalism in
football). . Obviously, if Pitt was go-
'ing to use the' same policy regarding
subsidizaton as the Big Ten, there
would be no lack of material, because
-the hajority of:the Big Ten teams al-
ways had -an even chance against
And, if we were to carry out the im-
pilcation to its logical conclusion, the
Big 'Ten has an even chance in sub-
sidization in order to attain an even
chance in the games.
* * * * .
Close To Home...
But the innuendoes pile up against
Western Conference policy. "The em-
phatic reply (of the alumni) was that
Pitt would not have material equal
to the Big Ten. They said-and I
(Wallace) agreed-that the members
of the Big Ten colleges practiced a
realistic' interpretation of their regu-
lations, that this permitted them a
rich. flow of material. Bowman, they
said, intended to interpret the code
strictly, which meant 'that Pitt would
' ot .receivefootball mnaterial equal to
the Big Ten. In short, Pitt would be
playing 'students'."
Obvious conclusion number
tw: The Big Ten does not play
"sudents"' on its football teams.
That was all that dealt directly with

the Big Ten. But there were other
points that might apply, indirectly,
to the Conference. The alumni
"grudgingly accepted the Code Bow-
man as the university policy. They
had sought to do the next best thing
by providing an alumni fuim to re-
place the salaries which the univer-
sity was no longer willing to pay. Two
or three important alumni had been
willing to put enough money into
this fund to make it effective. The
administration, however, strangled
this plan for alumni aid by demand-
ing supervision of the fund, and in-
sisting that it be available to non-
athletes as well as athletes. This was
a much more drastic stand than the
majority of colleges take on alumni
Wallace's own remarks on the
subject were excellent. He said,
and with perfect logic we think,
that "if the colleges themselves
were not making money out of
football, then they could afford
to be strictly idealistic. But as
long as they were making money
out of football, their hands were
not entirely clean when, they
came into court demanding that
players be pure amateurs. A boy
who worked on the football field
for the profit of his school was
entitled to pay just as much as
if he were doing janitor or secre-
tarial work-particularly since
the college got a bigger return
. from his labor."
As we said before, we'll try to bring
these points closer to home at a later

Armny-Irish Clash
To Attract 75,00
NEW YORK, Nov. 2. -(A')- The

dium Saturday afternoon 'and, wle

Army's chances of stopbing Notre
Dame, there will be the full comple-
ment of 75,00 or more addicts in
the triple-tiered stands.
This seasn,'jor instance, Army has
been beaten by Yale and tied Coluri-
bia only in 'the last two minutes in
its major games, and looked bad even
in winning its oeners 'fromFurman
and Centre. Notre fIlamre, on the
other hand, has won' successfive vic-
tories over five major rivals-Purdue
Georgia Tech, "SuthernI Methbdist
Navy and carnegie Tech.
Notre 'Dame, for one thing, came
out of its one point defeat of Carnegie
Tech with three of its front-line op-
eratives considerably below 'their
physical par and a 'number of others
showing bumps and bruises. Mean-
while Army is surprisingli confident
that its lineup for Saturday's game
will be the strongest it's had on the
field this fall.
The Army-Irish duel serves as the
week's number one intersectional at-

A strong passing attack gave Lloyd
House a 14-6 victory over Adams yes-
terday and the championship in their
division of the Dormitory touch foot-
ball league. Passes accounted for
both of Lloyd's touchdowns, Joe Mc-
Creary tossing one to Lilburn Ochs
for the first and Dick Kimerer tak-
ing one from Edwin Lorig for the
second. Ochs scored both extra
points. Lloyd will play Fletcher Hall,
winners in the other division, for
the dormitory title.
Phi Beta Delta took the crown in
their division of the interfraternity
touch football' league with a close
12-10 win over Alpha Delta Phi. Bob
Lewin and Art Weiss were the big'
guns in taking their team into the
playoffs. In a fight for second place
in the'same division, Theta Xi took
another close one from Chi Psi, 6-4.
Chuck Simpson and Ed Christensen
turned in good games for Theta Xi
while Bob Palmer was outstanding
for the losers.
