dle of the poorest season ever en-
dured by a Bierman-coached team.
The Gophers haven't won a game
this year, losing six and playing a
7-7 tie with Michigan. They have
lost to Washington, Nebraska,t
Northwestern, Ohio State, Iowa1
and Michigan State in that order.
Bierman took over as head
coach at Minnesota in 1932, suc-
ceeding Fritz Crisler who moved
to Princeton and later to Michi-
gan as head coach. Crisler now
is Wolverine athletic director.
In the years that followed, Bier-
man's teams achieved the top posi-
tion among th nation's squads five
times and captured the western
conference championship six
times. They have enjoyed five un-
defeated years during which they
put together two undefeated
strings of respectable duration-
one of 21 victories from 1933 to
1936 and the other of 17 games in
1939 to 1941.
Bierman's formal statement,
handed out at an early-morning
conference, said in his usual word-
thrifty style "I have reque'sted that
I be relieved of the fotball coach-
ing duties at the end of the year."
HE ADDED that the poor show-
ing of this year's team had nothing
to do with his decision and that
he had no offers to other jobs
Speculation that started nn-
mediately after the announce-
ment took two courses. One con-
cerned a possibe successor and
the other was whether Bierman
would remain at Minnesota in
some other capacity.
A professor of physical educa-
tion, he could remain on the
faculty. As football coach he has
been receiving $13,500 annually.
Director of Athletics Ike Arm-
strong said in his statement that
"We hope that he will remain with
the university in another capa-
As to a successor, persons close

cated there was no one particuler

CLEVELAND -(A)- Lou Bou-
dreau, deposed manager of the
Cleveland Indians, is going to be
given his unconditional release-
at his own request.
The baseball club's president, El-
lis Ryan, made this announcement
last night. It means, he said, that
Boudreau will be a free agent "in
a little over a week from now."
Although he was fired as man-
ager, Lou still was the property
of the Indians. Ryan said- at the
time the club was trying to ar-
range a Major League manager
job for Boudreau-or get him a
"But as we've said from the
start, we are anxious to cooperate
with Lou Boudreau 100 per cent in
doing-what he considers best for
him. He has requested his uncon-
ditional release so he shall have it."

The- guy with tennis's "big
game" will be blasting the ball
across the net Thursday night at
Yost Fieldhouse as Bobby Riggs'
professional tour comes to town.
The guy is Jack Kramer, and
that style of play has made him
the kingpin in the toughest of
tennis circuits, the night-after-
night, play-for-pay business.
KRAMER, who liquidated all
opposition in amateur ranks-he
was National Singles champ in
1946 and '47-is out to prove that
he's Mr. Big among the pros, and
so far has provided pretty substan-
In his cross-country tour

he overcame an early lead by
the old master and wound up
with a large margin of victories.
Last year, a new and challenging
star faced big Jake in Riggs' first
attempt at the touring pro busi-
ness. Roaring out of the amateur
ranks after winning the National
Singles title two years in a row,
Richard (Pancho) Gonzales came
up to the professional game to
test his blistering forehand, bril-
liant overhead game, and explod-
ing service against the peerless
The reason Pancho isn't with the
tour this year is simple. Kramer
blasted him right off the court,
winning 93 out of 121 matches.
BIG JAKE is a tireless perfec-
tionist, with almost as great a

hard-hitting all-around game. The
avid tennis fans say that the only
thing to equal Kramer's forehand
is Kramer's backhand.
His motto on the court is
"press, press, press." It isn't in
his makeup to play a defensive
game, though he's probably fast
enough to beat two-thirds of the
present amateur crop with that
type of play.
The only way to play Kramer is
the way Riggs unsuccessfully tried
to topple him from tennis pre-
CHICAGO -()- The present
Army team is better than the ones
of the Blanchard-Davis era.
This football pronouncement
came out of the Herald-American
Quarterback meeting yesterday.
The paean of praise for' the pre-

gan, which bowed to the Cadets

with amazingly accurate ground
strokes, Riggs relied on his speed
and experience to turn the tide.
But it wasn't enough.
Bobbin' Bobby found that his
age and the devastating power of
Kramer's "big game" were too
much to his detriment over the
gruelling exhibition stretch.
