Crisler Pays Final Tribute to Bo McMillin


Face Peoria
In Tonight's
Final Game

By The Associated Press }
'Football suffers a tremendous
oss in the death of Alvin (Bo)
McMillan," declared Fritz Crisler,
University of Michigan Athletic
Director yesterday.
McMillan, who was coach at In-
diana University before he took
over the Detroit Lions pro team,
died at his home in Bloomington,
Ind., early yesterday. He was 57.
"McMillan always was a high
standard bearer for the game of
football," Crisler said. "We will
all miss him."

McMILLAN'S 35-YARD touch-

"Prayin' Colonels" inflicted Har-

vard's first defeat in six years.
He was Walter Camps All-Ameri-
ca quarterback of 1919.
McMillan coached Indiana
University to its only Western
Conference football champion-
ship in 1945 after successful
coaching careers at Kansas

sylvania, and Centenary College
of Louisiana. The 1945 team was

His Hoosier elevens won more Con-

He was voted "football man of

He tallied 15 in a row for his

Practice sessions will begin Ap-

Unlike previous years the
season's practices will not begin
until after vacation is over.
Approximately 100 candidates
are expected to turn out for the
month long drill. Practices will be
scheduled on a six days per week
basis with emphasis, as usual, on
individual instruction. This will
be especially true in the case of
new players,
"WE FEEL THERE is a lot of
work to be done," said Oosterbaan,
"and our problems seem to be
much the same as they were a
year ago." The tailback and quar-
terback positions will still need to
be built up, in addition to improv-
