Michigan's Football System

Poin ted %Z

T SEEMS SAFE to say that Allen Jackson's
article "Too Much Football," appearing in
thecurrent Atlantic Monthly, will be some-
thing of a bombshell around the Ann Arbor
area.
Jackson, a first-string guard on the Mi-
chigan team for three seasons, pulls no
punches in describing his experiences un-
der the modern football system.
And although he sometimes launches into
too-obvious sensationalism, his general the-
sis concerning football today is entirely too
true.
Jackson hits at the inexorable necessity in
big-time football to win, and the corruption
of the will to win into a mechanistic philo-
sophy which eliminates players as persons
and students. Instead, the players today are
indispensable or (as the case may be) ex-1
pendable cogs in a giant machine dedicated
to preserving the fame of a university.
Jackson cites the slogan at Michigan:
"When Michigan loses, somebody has to
pay," as a prime example of the loss of
values prevalent in the gridiron world.
Michigan players are instilled, according
to Jackson, with the spirit of a vast tradi-
tion of winning seasons which makes it al-
most sacrilegious to lose. He omits to men-
tion, it should be added, that Michigan had
a number of losing seasons during the mid-
thirties. The tradition isn't foolproof.
* * *
THE LOSS OF TIME produced by long
practice sessions and the feeling that
football comes before anything else, even
though studies are supposedly first, results
in the impossibility of any real intellectual
endeavor by the player, says Jackson.
The truth of this cannot be doubted,
but it is questionable whether any foot-
ball system can allow a player to get as
much out of the intellectual or' social life
of a school as his non-playing counterpart.
The strongest criticism which can be made
of Jackson's report, outside of its occasional
theatrics, is that it fails to make the point
that Michigan is not the only school guilty
of a too-oppressive football system.
Other colleges, many of them on the Wol-
verine schedule, are even more famous (or

infamous) for the win-at-all-costs philo-
sophy.
One Big Ten coach several years ago was
known for his practice of doping injured
players with codine so they could play the
second half of important games. The same
coach is now in professional football and
still uses this device.
Such things don't happen at Michigan,
at least to my knowledge. But Jackson does
provide an example of what lengths play-
ers are expected to go to in the cause of
victory.
He states that in his own case, psycholo-
gical pressure was applied when an injury to
his knee made playing nearly impossible--
pressure to go ahead and give his all in the
big game the next weekend. As it turned out,
he didn't, but the' usual thing was for a
player to do his best as long as he could
"gut it out."
* * * .
DISREGARDING THE emotionalism at-
tached to making or not making the first
string of a team such as Michigan's, the sys-
tem does breed a distorted sense of values.
A player is made to feel that football is
more than a game, that opponents are ac-
tual enemies in a make-or-break struggle.
Part of this is due to the increasing influ-
ence of gate receipts upon the general pic-
ture.
Winning football is necessary to gate re-
ceipts. Gate receipts are now more important
than either the team or the student body.
The recent decision of the National Collegi-
ate Athletic Association to prevent televising
games except on a limited scale is illustrative
of this fact. If the public were more import-
ant, television would be allowed to do full
service as a means of communication of the
athletic contests to persons unable to get to
the stadia.
Football at Michigan is very much big
business. Gross receipts last year were
nearly a million dollars. In such an enter-
prise, the dollar sign must necessarily out-
weigh the value of the individual.
The will to win is actually harmless enough
as long as it is properly-channeled. And it
is only fair to note that Michigan is known
for a clean-playing team. Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan is a gentleman and a man known
for his friendly feeling toward players on
both sides.
So it is necessary to make reservations
about Jackson's presentation of the Michi-
gan football system. His' general picture of
the atmosphere on a big time collegiate
football team is nevertheless of much value
for an insight into correctable evils in the
gridiron world.

DORIS FLEESON:
Allies in Greece

THERE SHOULD BE little doubt in most
people's minds that the capital of China
is a place in Hopeh province named Peiping.
And all but a few would agree that the
government of China resides there. These
few, however, believe so firmly that the gov-
ernment exists outside of the capital (even
outside of the country), that they have pre-
ssured the entire United States into refus-
ing to recognize the Chinese People's Gov-
ernment.
The initial decision not to recognize the
Communist regime when it finally gained
control of China was shortsighted. But
were it not for a group of blindly partisan
Congressmen, this administrative mistake
could now be corrected.
It hardly seems probable that the Con-
gressional ranting is being done on behalf
of "millions of Asiatics sold down the river
by the Yalta agreement." The real aim is a
new administration.
This group has been so successful in gain-
ing public support through distorted inter-
pretation that it has given up the pretense
of having any sensible plan of opposition. It
is intent on digging into former supposedly
diplomatic dirty work-the Yalta treaty is
claimed to have been the dirtiest-so that
it can smear the administration. The Con-
gressmen are content to say that past State
Department mistakes have lost for us the
whole Far East-a questionable conclusion.
They ignore present conditions and the pos-
sibility of working with the administration
on a bi-partisan policy in Asia.
State Department officials have tried to
fight the attacks. But their attempts have
deteriorated into nothing but slurs upon
Chiang Kai-shek's government, which they
are pledged to support.
Of course the Congressmen claim that
the administration will accept no policy
but its own. To them it would be suicide
to admit that the administration may
have been right when it decided to stop
its aid to Chiang (now resumed). And if
the two camps could unite, realities would
have to be faced: reality being that the
government of China is in Peipino, not
Formosa.
Aided, however, by a strong public senti-
ment toward MacArthur's views of China
and Formosa, the Chiang supporters seem to
have convinced their constituents that they
are right. There is a slim hope that their
Republican colleagues and eventually the
voters will point out the error of their cause.
This failing, it remains for the administra-
tion to clearly define its stand and let the
public be its judge.
-Vernon Emerson
Sports Solution
EVER SINCE the first basketball scandal
was revealed, college sports have taken
a beating. Last week the faculty of one school
finally decided to do something about it,
Returning in the fall, the faculty at the
College of William and Mary learned that
'their President, head basketball and foot-
ball coaches had all resigned following the
disclosure that admissions had been rigged
to allow academically unqualified athletes
to enroll.
The faculty quickly sat down and reported
out a four point "cure" for the excesses that
they found. The points' are: cut down on
athletic scholarships, check on all admis-
sions, check on academic standards and see
that athletics return to their rightful place
as extra-curricular activities.
Of all of the evils that athletes have been
accused of during recent months, perhaps
the most serious is the neglect of academic
matters.
There is no question that studies must
come first-the question is rather: Can stu-
dents participate in athletics and still main-
tain their academic standing?
The faculty at William and Mary hasn't

answered this question. It probably won't be
answered for many months. Young men will
continue to play football and basketball but
they will also be required to keep up on their
studies as would any other student. There
will be no snap courses and "cooperative"
professors will be limited as mucht as pos-
sible.
After a few semesters of this, the ath-
letes will know whether or not they can
do both. If they can, and the faculty now
believes that they can, it will not only sig-
nify a rebirth of sports at the Virginia
college, it will also prove a very important
point-that sports and school are compa-
tible when- academic honesty is present.
The future of sports at many schools is
being threatened. If it can be shown, as it
may be in- the case of William and Mary that
wise action can remove the excesses, ama-
teur sports, not only in Virginia, but all over
the nation will get a new boost.

ATHENS-The sun shines for America in
Greece.
The U.S. military mission? Our saviors.
U.S. heavy bomber bases in Crete, so han.
dy to the Black Sea ports of Communist
Russia? Our pleasure. (They are under way.)
A Greek contribution to the common de-
fense? Note, please, that 47 per cent of
the Greek budget is for military expenses,
that Greek troops are in Korea, that a
tough army, large in proportion to Greece's
7,500,000 poulation, is in being, and, with
the Greek people, has the will to fight.
Nor will Greece, it is said. be in the least
sticky about Marshal Tito if, as he has hint-
ed, he really does want to make some kind
of security arrangements with Greece and
Turkey. It was over Tito's borders in the bad
old days that many guerrillas came who, but
for the Truman Doctrine, would probably
have reduced this country to another tragic
Red satellite. But, so long as the United
States accepts the Tito alliance, Greece will,
too.
There is considerable caution manifested
here, as elsewhere, incidentally, in assess-
ments of Tito's strength. He is felt to be
stronger militarily than politically in his
Balkan state; the question raised is wheth-
er he can hold it together if war comes.
No serious question is conceded here
about Greek unity, despite the appearance
of a small Communist vote in the recent
election. The hard core of Reds are known
and under control, it Is claimed, and do
not-menace the defense effort.
All these are important credits, and make
life considerably more relaxing for Ameri-
cans at work here than in various other'
countries of 'the West. But there is one very
large problem.-

The only really bountiful crop yielded by
the marbled soil of these isles is politicians.
The result is a constant struggle to get the
people enough to eat, and a frequently frus-
trating struggle to find responsible officials
to deal with.
It is true that most leading candidatesefor
office here are pro-American, almost em-
barrassingly so. The Greeks have developed
a rather hard-boiled, American-style humor
about it; an April Fool's Day cartoon still
peing displayed around here showed Am-
bassador John C. Peurifoy and ECA admin-
istrator Roger Lapham saluting the Greek
king and Prime Minister. Fortunately, both
the Ambassador, a former Assistant Secre-
tary of State, and Lapham, a former Mayor
of San Francisco, are astute and experienced,
and can dodge the kiss of death as well as
any politico.
Life gets a little complicated when even
the admirable monarchy shows signs of
making like clubhouse politicians.
In the recent election, King Paul went
so far as to suggest, in an interview with
an American correspondent, that, in his
view, a leading candidate for Prime Min-
ister, Field Marshal Alexander Papagos,
was a good soldier, and should be in the
army. This was reprinted exclusively in an
anti-Papagos newspaper.
The King had some provocation. In an-
nouncing his, candidacy, Papagos had ap-
peared to hint that the crown approved his
ambition. But it would, for example, rather
startle the British on the eve of a general
election if their constitutional monarch,
King George VI, should tell a reporter that
Winston Churchill was an, admirable first
lord of the admiralty, and should be back
with the British navy.
