risler Returns to Nest of Troyb

Aers venge Last Wek's 60-41 Loss,
e ting Northwestern by Same Margin

Daily Sports Editor
WE HAVE a hunch that Herbert Orrin Crisler, Michigan's ordinarily im-
perturbable athletic director, has reached for the aspirin more than
once since his return to Ann Arbor Friday. Mr. Crisler very definitely has
troubles-of the variety that comes in bunches.
Yesterday's announcement by University officials to the effect that no
more applications for admittance from outside the state of Michigan
will be accepted must have given Crisler something to think about. Chances
are the ruling will continue to operate during the fall term. The impli-
cations for Michigan athletics are obvious-and all bad.
Michigan has always drawn a very large proportion of its athletes from
out-state. Twenty-one of the 29 football letter-winners this past season,!
for instance, were non-Michiganites. Not one of the 17 members of the
hockey team is from Michigan. Nor is any one of the starting basketball five.
If deprived of this generous source of material, Wolverine athletics stand
to suffer severely. Crisler, as the man responsible for Michigan football
in particular and all Michigan sports in general, has good reason to worry
over the situation.
Also greeting Crisler when he returned to his desk at the Administration
Building was the task of finding a substitute for the University of Penn-
sylvania on the 1946 football schedule. Penn, under contract to play here
Oct. 5, has asked to be relieved of its obligation, just as it did in 1945. The
new opponent will probably be announced later this week.

A S IF these two problems weren't enough, Crisler still has the not in-j
considerable headache of finding and signing a new line coach to replac
Clarence (Biggie) Munn. The finding of candidates has not been hard.
Crisler has a list of more than 30 persons who apparently would like nothin
better than to take over line coaching duties here.
The signing probably won't present any great difficulty either, once
it has been determined to whom the offer should be made. In the running
are five men who now hold head coaching positions elsewhere, several
ex-Michigan linemen, an assortment of high school mentors and sundry
other individuals.
Just when the final decision will be made is a matter of speculation. T
Board in Control of Athletics meets tomorrow night, but no action will b,
taken on the line coaching problem. Sorting the credentials and qualifica-
tions of 30 aspirants takes time.
All these matters have been dumped right in Crisler's lap. The schedule
problem and the hiring cf a line coach call for immediate decisiens. which
decisions should not be too long forthcoming. The out-state enrollment
regulation constitutes one of those imponderables whose solution roab,'
doesn't exist. If it is necessary, to exclude out-state students, Michig
athletics will have to suffer the consequences.
The consequences, for Crisler, might not be particularly pleasant. Michiganj
fans, conditioned to expecting nothing but winning teams by long years of
more or less constant victory, are not the sort to tolerate losing, no matt er}
what the reasons.
ANYBODY know where you can buy aspirin wholesale?

Northwestern made their last bid to]
stay in the game on goals by Wheeler
and Chuck Tourek. The Wolverines
went ahead by three points on a two-

King and Elliot each countered
twice in a succession of alternating]
goals for both teams. Just before theI

end of the first half, Michigan spurted
far ahead with 10 points while holding
the Wildcats to a singe field goal.
Northwestern scored first after the
intermission on a set shot- by Phil
Lofgren, but Mullaney got the points
back on a layup. The Wolverines
gained ground steadily from that
point on.
Bob Harrison, who had been held
scoreless in the first half, countered
with four goals from the field in the
second half. With about five minutes
remaining, the regulars were pulled
from the game, but Northwestern was
held to two points by the substitutes.

"That means quick decisions, many
mistakes and many headaches."
The Southern executive said 1946
spring training would raise conditions
such as baseball has never seen in the
past and may never see again.
"During the war, baseball became
a global pastime, played from Guad-
alcanal to the Aleutians," he de-
"Look what you have-hundreds of
youngsters who never dreamed of
playing ball now envisioning them-
selves as another Cobb or Ruth.
We have most of the old players
coming back, the youngsters and
four-F's who held forth during the
war and these service-made athletes,
all trying to make the grade."

"We have thirty-odd minor leagues
