CHICAGO-(P-The Big Nine
yesterday deferred action on
Michigan State College's appli-
cation for membership until to-
morrow, but approved a new
scholarship code fixing limits on
financial aid to athletes.
The Michigan State question
will be discus,:2.d at a joint meet-
ing df the faculty representatives
and athletic directors tomorrow
morning with final action expect-
ed tomorrow afternoon.
BOTH MICHIGAN STATE and
Pittsburgh, each with member-
ship applications on file with the
Western Conferznce, had repre-
sentatives at the Big Nine's win-
ter meeting. Neither school, how-
ever, was invited to the faculty
representative's afternoon session.
The scholarship program ap-
proved by the faculty r( presen-
tatives permits financial aid for
tuition to needy athletes, who
maintain a "C" average scho-
lastically, or a maximum of
$300 annually beyand tuition
to eligible athletes, who main-
tain a "B" average.
The tuition aid on the basis of
need may be granted to freshmen
The Scimitar Club presented
additional proof for the case of
varsity recognition of fencing
when it beat a strong Highland
Park squad 15-12 yesterday af-
ternoon at the I-M Building.
Scimitar won two of the three
events fenced. The Michigan
swordsmen took the first event by
the score of 7-2, the identical
margin they won by last year.
In the epee event Highland
Park gave their host quite a bat-
tle with Scimitar barely squeez-
ing out a 5-4 victory. .
Ed Micllef paced the winners
by taking four bouts, while Pete
Young and Norm Barnett' ac-
counted for three bouts each.
Art Wright and Andy Turner
helped out with two wins each,
Frank Toby completing the score
with one match.

Skinner landed the work; of
Michigan's defensive quartet,
Connie Hill, Ross Smith, Dick
St -ral and Bob Fleming. He
added the offense was the biggest
surprise. "They work together
beautifully. have fine balance, and
their passing is great," the Wind-
sor mentor said.
"I SAW MICHIGAN last year,
and they have improved quite a
bit," Skinner said. "They certainly
shouldnt have- any trouble with
these collegiate outfits they play."
McDonald was also in line for
a few bouquets. Though the Can-
adians scored two goals against
him, the Michigan goalie came
through with 24 saves, many of
them unbelievable. It was beyond
question one of the finest games
of his career.

MADISON', WIS.-(4') --Harry
Stuhldreher gave up his post
as head football coach at the
University of Wisconsin today.
But the surrender didn't cost him
The little general, under heavy
fire all season, resigned in a dra-
matic move but kept his position
as athletic director and his $12,-
000 yearly salary.
"THE DOUBLE SOB was get-
ting too tough," he said.
The Board of Regents agreed
and sent University President
E. B. Fred out into the market
place to find a successor.
Stuhldreher's 1948 team wound.
up in the Big Nine cellar with a
single conference victory. It won
one other game in nine starts.

unfurled their banner in the mid-
season Yale game-which favor-
ed Wisconsin lost, 17-7-spear-
headed a statewide assault on his
HIS RESIGNATION came four
days before a student referendum
on his status. But, Stuhldreher
said, that had nothing to do with
his decision, which actually was
made last Tuesday. Anyway, the
vote was called off.
Stuhldreher, who quarter-
backed Notre Dame's famed
four horsemen, under Knute
Rockne, found his 13th season
a jinx. It ended the longest cur-
rent tenure in the conference.
His teams won 45 games, lost
62 and tied six. His top team
was the 1942 squad, which won
eight, tied one and lost one,
finishing second to Ohio State
in Western Conference stand-
At Villanova, his only other
stop between playing days and
Wisconsin, his teams won 65, lost
25, and tied 10 in 11 years.
STUILDREHER was attend-
ing the Big Nine meeting at Chi-
cago and did not appear before
The Regents termed 'his rec-
ord as athletic director out-
standing and declared the uni-
versity "now needs full time"

full professor and could be re-
moved only upon determination of,
the Board of Regents that such
action be "in the best interest of
THE BADGER MENTOR'S plight
first came to nationwide atten-
tion after Mrs. Stuhldreher wrote
a magazine article called "Football
Fans Aren't Human."
The freshman track squad is
in urgent need of field event
men. All those who have the
ability to shot put, broad jump,
high jump, or pole vault are
invited to turn out, as are

A uair of teams which tied for
sixth place in last year's Big Nine
basketball race will prove to be
more than just thorns in Michi-
gan's defense of its title.
Ohio State and Minnesota end-
ed their schedules with 5-7 rec-
ords at the close of Conference
play, but show promise of highly
OF THE two, the Buckeyes ap-
pear to be- the bigger threat for
the coming season.
There were four sophomores
on last y s sttin quintet,
and a fifth, center Bob R aidiger,
will fill the shoes of Neil John-
ston who went into profession-
In Conference play last year,
Raidiger, at that time, a soph,
outscored Johnston, but the latter
had a three-inch edge in height
as well as added experience.
THE BUCKS, despite their lack
of experience, presented the sec-
ond most potent offense in the
Big Nine with 657 points, but they
also contributed the leakiest de-
fense, allowing 673 points.
This year's squad will include
nine lettermen. The starting five
will include six-foot four-inch
Raidiger at the pivot post, for-
wards Dick Schnittker and Bob
Denham, and Bob Burkholder
and Gene Brown as the guards.
The other letter winners are
center Jack Pfeiffer, forwards
Bob Winter and Ted Jacobs, and
guard Dick Hudson.
COACH WILLIAM "Tippy" Dye
also has some newcomers who've
shown up well in practice. Five
were frosh last year, two jayvees
and Jim Remington, a forward, is
a returned serviceman.
The former frosh include one
forward, Gene Melzer, and four
guards, Prosper "Frenchy"
Franchimont, Dick Widdoes,
Jack Lewis and Bill Kraker.
Up from the jayvees are Mario
Giacomelli, a center, and guard
DYE WILL concentrate on two
things: height on the floor, and a
balanced attack, so that the of-
fense won't depend on one man.
His starting five will be tall
(6'2%" average) despite center
Raidiger's comparatively short
six feet, four inches.
The tallest starter will be Dick
Schnittker at six feet, five inches.
the shortest. Burkholder at five
feet, ten inches.
OVER IN Minneapolis, Ozzie
Cowles, the former Michigan cage
mentor who last season guided the
Wolverines to their first undisput-
ed cage championship in 2 years,
has inaugurated a new era.
Cowles had eight returning
lettermen from the 1947-48 out-
fit, but, when he cut the squad
to 15, three of the letter winners,
Chet Tomczyk, Joe Ilolewa and
Pete Tapsak, found themselves
on the outside.
The other lettermen include All-
Conference center Jim McIntyre,
Bud Grant, a regular forward for
two years, Wally Salovich and Jim
Stark, reserve forwards last sea-
son, and Duane Baglien, who won
a letter in 1944 before entering
the navy and earned a "B" team
award last year.
THERE ARE also eight sopho-
mores whose playing attracted the
attention of Cowles.
They are forwards Elmer Sal-
ovich, Myer "Whitey" Skoog
and Dave Skrien; centers David
"Jerry" Ekberg and Don Jo-
hansen; and guards Frank Lan-
sing, Gerald Mitchell and Tom

IN TWELVE Conference games,
the big (6'9%") center tallied 215
points, ranking second only to
Iowa's flashy forward, Murray
Weir in Big Nine scoring.

squad Cowles is putting on the
floor this year, it looks as though
21-year-old senior will again be
depended upon to spark the
In Grant, Minnesota will have
another high-scoring ace.

ward, who plays end on the foot-
ball team, ranked 16th in Con-

for a total of 98 points.
