Army Out In Cold As Pacific Coast
Directors Vote To StartPact This Year

New Year's Day Classic Likely To Find Southern
California or UCLA Host to Illinois or Michigan

By The Associated Press
BERKELEY, Calif., Nov. 20 - The
Pacific Coast Conference and the Big
Nine of the Western Conference
hitched their football wagons to the
Rose Bowl gravy train in a five year
pact today, but only after Far West
representatives reluctantly scuttled
ambitions to test their gridiron met-
tle against Army's unbeaten eleven
next Jan. 1.
The decision to make the new plan
for the Pasadena classic effective at
once was admittedly one of expedi-
ency to forestall further delay in
bringing to fulfillment negotiations
which have been in progress for
Army Was Popular Choice
Army was the popular choice of
the Coast for the coming postseason
clash. There was no doubt the Ca-
dets were crowding the picture as
representatives of the two conferen-

ces met on into the early hours of
today before finally agreeing to make
their pact effective now, instead of
postponing it in favor of Army until
January 1948.
Illinois is the potential Big Nine
champion to meet either Southern
California or the University of Cali-
fornia at Los Angeles. The Illini have
to get past Northwestern Saturday
to cinch their claim to Rose Bowl
honors. Southern Cal and unbeaten,
untied UCLA battle it out in Los
Angeles the same day to settle their
Illini To Go Along
Paradoxically, it was Illinois who
opposed a Western Conference bowl
tieup with the coast conference.
However, Big Nine representatives

for Michigan's basketball squad yes-

lie has converted two former for-
wards, '45-'46 regular Bob Harri-
son and Bill Mikulich, into guards
to add scoring punch to his offense.
The strategy apparently has paid
off as this duo along with Mack
Suprunowicz, Bill Roberts and Boyd

the third quarter and coasted in
from there.
Three lettermen-Bob Baker, Mar-

ing in the attempt to stem the
"White" offensive.
Baker suffered a possible shoulder
separation in the second quarter in
a backboard tussle.

In Lineman Poll
NEW YORK, Nov. 20-(AP)-Wel-
don Humble isn't humble when it
comes to playing football guard for
Rice Institute at Houston, Tex. He
played his greatest game of the year
against the Texas Aggies on Satur-
day, a performance that earned him
today the honor of being "Lineman
of the Week" in the weekly Associat-
ed Press poll.
Michigan end Bob Mann caught
three forward passes for 74 yards,
two for touchdowns, and also gained
26 yards on two end-around plays
against Wisconsin.
The list of linemen nominated this
week included:
Ehds-Mann, Michigan.
Guards-Gerometta, Army.

were unanimous in the opinion that
Illinois would go along with the pact
signed early today, and which West-
ern Conference schools had endorsed
by a majority vote. Only Illinois and
Minnesota originally went on record
as unfavorable.
The two Southern California title
contenders voted against making
the pact effective immediately, hold-
ing out for Army in the forthcoming
bowl game and the Western Confer-
ence champion thereafter. They were
out-voted 6 to 12. Oregon and Ore-
gon State left before the vote was
The Big Nine representatives had
been instructed to present the pact
in the form which had been approved
and had Army been permitted to
squeeze in ahead of the Big Nine, a
complete referendum would have
been necessary.
Might Have Had Referendum
Clinton W. Evans, General Mana-
ger of the University of California,
"Naturally, like a lot of other peo-
ple here on the coast, I would have
liked to have seen Army in the Rose
Bowl in 1947. However, since the
background for this tieup was laid
years ago, it was expedient that we
start as soon as possible."
Tickets .. .

tickets to the Ohio State and Illinois
Two games, Stanford and North-
western,awhich will be played during
Christmas vacation, will be unra-
tioned because the majority of the
student body will not be on the cam-
pus. These two games will be the
only ones open to the general pub-
lic, but students and coupon book
holders will still be given first pref-
erence. After they have been ad-
mitted any remaining seats will be
sold to the public.
Admission tickets will be issued in
University Hall from 8:30 a.m. to
noon and from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., all
next week, starting Monday. Stu-
dents are to note that these prefer-
ential tickets will be honored only
until 7 p.m. on the night of the game
designated. After that time other
students and coupon book holders
will be admitted as long as there are
seats available.
In addition an exchange will be set
up whereby students will be able to
trade preferential tickets for games
they desire to see.
Commenting on the plan, athletic
department officials stated that it
was made necessary by the fact that
the University's student body now
numbers 18,513.

Between State & Michigan Theaters

By ARCHIE PARSONS, Daily Sports Staff
Poor lil' ole Miami Umversity down in Florida has been having a hard
time the past week or so.
After asking Penn State not, to use their two star Negro players in thej
State-Miami fotball Lame that was scheduled for November 29, they were
set back on their heels wlhen Penn State refused to play at all, even if they
had to forfeit the game.
So Miami started looking around for another worthy opponent.
They sent a letter into the heart of Yankee territory and asked Syra-
cuse University if they would play.
The response was terrific. Syracuse officials immediately vetoed the
idea and the Syracuse student paper carried an editorial calling it a "direct
insult" that they had even been asked. They said that they would not
demand an apology, but really, Miami should know better.
Miami, however, would not be daunted. They decided to get out of
the East, so they looked around the Midwest and found the University of
Detroit. Another letter . . . and this time a pleasant surprise, as far as
Miami is concerned, because Detroit accepted the offer and agreed to play
the game on November 29.
We are not so pleasantly surprised. 'We feel rather that if such
schools with the same philosophies as Miami are so anxious to play
football under a set of rules guided by Southern tradition, then they
should stay in their own league.
Others evidently feel the same way. The University of Detroit is being
snowed under with letters and resolutions of protest, written by people and
organizations who feel that Miami ought to go home and stay there.
A delegation of students from this University is planning to go to De-
troit and personally protest the :acceptance' of the game with Miami. We
sincerely hope that the University of Detroit will reconsider their decision.
Coach Fritz Crisler, when approached about this matter last night,
admitted that he had heard nothing about the situation. He felt, how-
ever, that it was a matter to be worked out by the individual schools
concerned, and not anything for Michigan to be concerned with.
We feel a bit differently. We feel that a thing like this is a blot on
American football in general. Since Michigan is very much a part of Amer-
ican football, we feel that this University is concerned.
We believe, however, that if it should have happened that Michigan
had been approached about such a game, Coach Crisler would have flatly
rejected the offer. A game without Gene Derricotte, Bob Mann and Len
Ford would be facetious as far as we are concerned. Capt. Art Renner also
said that he couldn't imagine a game without these three Maize and Blue
There is still time for the University of Detroit to change their
minds and cancel the game, even if it would mean the loss of a forfeit
fee. There are a lot of people in this part of the country who believe
that Southern tradition and football tradition should not mix, and
many of them are University of Detroit students. The Detroit officials
should remember that the school and the team still belong to them.

CHICAGO, Nov. 20 -- Illinois, just
one game away from the Big Nine
football championship, today ap-
peared ready to forget previous Rose
Bowl objections and to march into
the Pasadena classic on New Year's
Day. I
The five-year bowl pact between
the Pacific Coast Conference and the
Big Nine caught the Illini, who must
defeat Northwestern Saturday to
clinch the Conference crown, in an
embarrassing but not inextricable
Illini To Adhere to Policy
Athletic Director Doug Mills of
Illinois today indicated that the
Fightin' Illini, like Minnesota - the
one other school which voted against

bowl participation - would adhere
to "majority rule" in Conference
It was learned that if Illinois wins
the Big Nine title, Mills and Prof.
Frank Richart, . chairman of the
school's Senate Athletic Committee,
would recommend the Illini accept
a bowl bid. Richart's committee or-
iginally made the recommendation,
later adopted by the entire Illinois
senate body, that the bowl proposal
be rejected.
Problem Averted if Michigan Wins
Of course, the whole problem would
be averted Saturday if second-place
Michigan defeated Ohio State in
their traditional finale at Columbus,
and if Northwestern upsets Illinois.
