There was excitement in the office
of Ann Arbor's sheriff, police chief
and .prosecuting attorney, one day
early this football season. That-was
the day that a letter arrived from
the Governor of Michigan which con-
tained a warning that football pools
would not -be tolerated in the Uni-
versity community of Ann Arbor this
year. Mr. Dickinson added strength
to his words by promising to send
State Police to the Washtenaw' dis-
trict if the county and city authori-
ties felt that they were unable to
handle the situation themselves.
When this letter was read by the
gentlemen in the law enforcement
offices, legal eyebrows lifted a little.
There was more to make them
angry than just this message from
Governor Dickinson, who rose from
obscurity to national attention by his,
blasts at vice and ".high life." They
learned that the Governor's threat
had been inspired by a letter from
a University student who also is a
member of The Daily's junior staff.
In fact, Mr. Dickinson enclosed a
copy of that letter so that law officers
might read the charges. And that is
when, as one of the Washtenaw offi-
cials ptit it, "I really became pro-
In many ways, that student letter
to the state capitol was an unfortun-
ate move. It was-written without any
consultation with the Washtenaw
prosecutor, sheriff, or the Ann Arbor
chief of police. It reflected ,on the
merits and motives of the local offi-
cials without offering them an op-
portunity for defense. But the letter
did contain certain raw truths which
have needed the white light of public
attention for the past four years.
The letter, first and fundamentally,
demanded that efforts be taken to
prohibit the return -of football pools
managed by professional gamblers in
It was a matter of record that only
the year before certain of these pools
managed by a Detroit organization
drained off several thousand dollars
worth of student money each week.
Finally, smashing every rule of ethics
of even their own racket, these gam-
blers slipped out of town without pay-
ing off some $5,000 in debts. Stu-
dents meanwhile protested and dis-
covered thait they were unable to
At any rate, Governor Dickinson
pledged his assistance in- keeping
pools out of Ann Arbor. His letter
to Prosecutor Rapp, Sheriff Andres,
and Chief of Police Cook was strong.
The officials were irritated and in-
sisted that they had already worked
out careful plans to stop pools this
It has now become evident that
for one reason or another Prosecutor
Rapp and his helpers have rolled up
their sleeves this year and have actu-
ally gone to work. Football season is
well in the back-stretch and there
has been no real evidence that pro-
fessional gamblers are operating pool
rackets. ,The Daily has remained in
close touch with the situation through
the last six weeks, in an attempt to
discover evilence, and has found that
pools are not functioning.
That is the status of the football
pool situation in Ann Arbor today.
It marks an admitted improvement
over performances of other recent
years. Conduct in the future will de-
pend exclusively on how well the law
enforcement officers do their work. .
