whenever a company wanted to
promote its wares by means of a
special offer or contest.
Ernie McCoy, iieaci or the Mich-

to his uses and staged a great
show at Yost Field House yester-
day, with the purpose of using
the system ,to win basketball

HE HAD "reasonable facsimi-
les" of the Minnesota squad mo-
tivating all over the Field House
court during the regular after-
noon rehearsal.
Utilizing the talent available
from the numerous divisions of
the basketball department, pro-
ducer McCoy cast the men who
looked, acted, and played the
most like the men on the Goph-
er squad and had them stand in
for their "doubles" at Minne-
This in itself is not particularly
unusual, but the fact that McCoy
had the impersonators "wrapped"
in jerseys with the numbers of
the Minnesota players on them

shows how much he wants the
Michigan players to get familiar
with their Gopher opponents. j
DAVE STRACK, freshmen bas-

-that of portraying the Goph-

cage squad, Dick Williams, a

Vanderbilt, was garbed in a jer-

with Bud Weidenthal
Associate Sports Editor
This is the second in a series of articles concerning changes leveled at
the University of Miehig.in Athletic Department.
WITH THE passage of each day the verbal battle with Michigan
State intensifies. And the strange part about the whole situation is
that all accusations and charges seem to eminate from one source,
the MSC athletic office. It's strictly a one-sided affair, with the Spar-
tans doing all the hollering and Michigan doing little or nothing to
defend itself.
The Wolverines have good reason to believe that silence is
the best policy.
The University of Michigan, along with its athletic department,
has for over a century been regarded as one of the finest of its kind In
the country. It has been famed for its purity and high standards.
WOLVERINE ATHLETES have always been of the highest caliber,
of students as well as in intercollegiate competition.
For years, Michigan, with its vast stadium has been host
to MSC, aiding the Spartans not only in national recognition
(when other big time schools would not schedule them) but with
a large cash income, which went a long way in subsidizing their
athletic program. State students were always admitted free to
these contests . that practice only being discontinued at MSC's
Then in a matter of a few years, the Spartans, aided by liberal
athletic scholarships (which they have now discontinued), skyrocketed
to national prominence as one of the country's better aggregations ..
but apparently they got too big for their breeches.
EVELING ALL sorts of charges of "harsh dealings" "mercenary"
attitude, "ultimatum," etc., the Spartan athletic office opened a
full-ledged propaganda campaign against the very school that had
carried themn under their wing.
In an attempt to enhance their own reputation they have
aroused quite the opposite response. They have very ptossibly set
their reputation back to the time when they were nothing but
a small agricultural college-(and that's not so long ago).
They have certainly overstepped the bounds of good taste in
athletic diplomacy. As new members of the Big Ten they have to be
extremely careful of each move . . . they're under careful scrutiny by
all the Conference. Any slip can prove to be of serious consequence..
TIlE PROBLEM of aid to athletes has also arisen as a basis for
conflict. The Jenison scholarships which were recently discontinued
by MSC, as a condition of their admission to the Western Conference,
were extremely liberal and passed out to athletes quite freely with
little resec t to high academic requirements.
