Ban on Varsity
Once an All-American swimmer, now an author and Professor of
English, Allan Seager suggested yesterday that the University ban
varsity sports outright and "grow flowers in the stadium."
Prof. Seager, who was dubbed All=American two consecutive years
for his swimming feats on the 1928-29 Wolverine squad, said: "If the
University is assumed to be a place concerned with the improvement of
the mind, then I can see no reason at all for varsity athletics."

THE BARITONED short story writer lashed out at "proselyting,
semi-professionalism, and coaches who bring athletes to college solely to
play and nothing else."
Calling it a "phoney deal," he added: "If the University
brought athletes here primarily to educate them, all right. But

"U' Athletics

The entire varsity football team

Before the Detroit Alumni Club,

our own University, the mem-
bers of the 1951 football squad
feel that they must come to the
defense of football as it is played
at the University.
"We wish to emphasize that
we participate in the sport solely
because we enjoy it, and not be-
cause of any superficial gain we
may reap. Above this, we feel
that we benefit in terms of char-
acter development, poise, and
self-reliance through an inti-
mate contact with each other.

the intrinsic values of the game
"Of course, there are com-
plaints and grumbling by the
players themselves, b u t this
seems to have become an in-
alienable right of all athletes.
Football is rough and it is time
consuming, but not more so
than any oher extra-curricular

the grade level of the 1950 Rose

In this way they have made

griped or complained, but all of
us agree that we would rather
play under these men than un-

the country.
"Despite the number of scan-
dals that have been revealed,
they have affected only a small
part of the game. The evils are
not inherent in the sport itself.
The game is still noble and fine,
and still able to fulfill a service
to the young men of our coun-

"So, the 1951 squad expresses
its confidence in the athletic

hopes that it can be continued
so that future generations may
benefit from its fine training as
we have."

varsity sports," the 'M' Club mem-

be no incentive for bringing a stu-

THE AUTHOR-professor, who
played both basketball and foot-
ball at',his high school in Memphis,
Tenn., was an oustanding mem-
ber of the Michigan swimming
team in 1927, '28, and '29.
In 1931, when he went to Ox-
ford University to resume his
studies, he was honored as "Var-
sity Swimming Champion of
England." He also rowed for the
English university. Since 1935,
Prof. Seager has been teaching
English at the University.
Seager, who dislikes being called
"professor," has written Old Man
of the Mountain, a book of short
stories, , and has authored two
novels, Equinox and The Inheri-

Meanwhile, in New York Gen.
Douglas MacArthur was also con-

situation-but in a different way.
MacArthur said he feared the

Reds Purge
'Titoists' in
Former Foreign

VIENNA, Austria-(P)-A purge
of the Czechoslovak Communist
Party from top to bottom was an-
nounced from Prague yesterday in
a Russian-language radio broad-
The housecleaning has the
avowed purpose of removing any
chance that Titoism might spring
up in Czechoslovakia to overthrow
the Moscow-dominated govern-
ment and replace it with indepen-
dent, or national Communism.
The new purge is linked with
former Foreign Minister Vlado
Clementis, jailed a year ago for
alleged Titoist plotting, and Rudolf
Slansky, former Party General
Secretary, jailed two weeks ago.
Thedecision for a sweeping "re-
organization reaching from the
lower ranks up to the highest level
of the party" was taken day be-
fore yesterday by the Party Cen-
tral Committee, the radio said.
It was mapped out by President
Klement Gottwald in a report as
Party Chairman.
GOTTWALD said 22 of the 97
members of the committee had
made self-critical speeches at the
meeting-a common prelude to ar-
Slasky was arrested while try-
ing to flee to the West with "the
aid of agents of the Western im-
perialists," Gottwald said.
A woman member, Mrs. Jar-
mila Taussigova, was caught up in
the purge and accused of being a
Slansky accomplice. She was ex-
pelled from the Party and board
membership and excluded from all
Party functions.
President Gottwald said Slansky
was arrested just as he was trying
to escape from Czechoslovakia
with aid of foreign agents.
Several members of the Central
Committee at Prague pleaded
guilty to charges of having toler-
ated subversive activities of Slan-
sky, the radio reported.

Mock Atom
War Waged
WASHINGTON - (") - Mock
atom bombs theoretically rained
on Washington yesterday - the
tenth anniversary of Pearl Harbor.
On paper, the nation's capital
suffered fearful losses in lives,
with the Capitol, the House and
Senate office buildings and the
Union Station all damaged.
It was part of a test to see how-
quickly Washington could be de-
fended if a sneak attack should
But it was a strange kind of
mockery. No troops and no planes
were used. The war, which began
yesterday and ."ends today, was
fought entirely bn paper.
To add to Washington's troubles,
1,509 "ruthless, well trained and
vicious" enemy troops had para-
chuted in and were ready to take
over the city.
As for the bombing, it theoretic-
ally tore up the town in a rectan-
gular slash one and a half miles
wide and three and a half miles
No estimate was made of the
number who presumably would be
killed in such an attack. But one
communique said 2,500 needed me-
dical help-and all hospitals in
the area were badly damaged.
No mention was made of the
White House, which was on the
edge of the area supposed to be

Late Surge
M' Gets Five Goals'
DuringThird Period
Engineer Vic Heyliger opened
the throttle another notch on his
Michigan hockey team and the
Wolverine Express roared past
Montreal, 9-2, in the Coliseum last
Michigan is scheduled to roll
against the Carabins again to-
night at 8:00 p.m. in the Coliseum.
The win was the NCAA Cham-
pion Wolverines' second straight
of the new season.
STARTING slowly, Michigan
picked up a head of steam as he
contest wore on, and finished with
five goals in the "third period
against a Carabin sextet boasting
many of the players that tied and
defeated the Wolverines in two
games last year.
Heyliger's chief firemen were
George Chin, a sophomore speed-
ster, and his linemates Captain
Earl Keyes and Pat Cooney, an-
other sophomore, who stoked the
Maize and Blue boiler with five
goals. Chin and Keyes bagged
two each.
On the defense, Willard Ikola,
flashy soph goal tender, thrilled
the near-capacity crown of 3700
with a succession of hair-raising
saves, that, in the words of Coach
Heyliger, "stopped a "ast six sure
Montreal goals." Iola tuo~e
aside 27 Carabin blasts, whilet
the rink's other end Montreal's
goalie, Marcel Auger, stopped 25.
IN THEIR FIRST home start of
the campaign, the Wolverines dis-
played teamwork, passing, and
checking, which was noticeably
absent in their opening 11-1 tri-
umph over ragged MSC.
Play for most of the first per-
iod made it look as if a tight
defensive battle were in the of-
fing, although both sides came
close to scoring before Chin got
the first goal at 17:35.
Doug Philpott narrowly missed
tallying for the Wolverines in the
first minute of the game, as did
Johnny McKennell two minutes
later with Michigan short handed.
But it remained for Chin to break
the ice with his score from a
scramble six feet in front of Mon-
treal's net.
KEYES SET UP the marker
with some fancy stick-handling,
and Chin cashed in a rebound af-

ice to stop a short blast.
