Oosterbaan, Vrisler Issue Public Apology


Daily Sports Editor
In unprecedented public apolo-
gies, Michigan football coach Ben
Oosterbaan and Athletic Director
H. O. "Fritz" Crisler last night
expressed their regrets to Ohio
State University over the un-
sportsmanlike conduct of several
members of the Michigan team in
Saturday's game.
The formal apologies came after
two conlferences with the Wolver-
ine coaching staff and varsity

Widely described in the Detroit
papers as the most "shameful inci-
dent in Michigan football history,"
the incident resulted in the widest
and most pointed criticism perhaps
ever leveled at a University of
Michigan athletic team.
Crisler's apologies were personal
letters to OSU president Dr. How-
ard L. Bevis and Richard C. Lar-
kins, .the Buckeye's Athletic
Oosterbaan's statement "read:
"Michigan regrets very deeply the
incidents which occured during

the final minutes of the Ohio
State game. The players ejected
from the game-not for any physi-
cal act, but for arguing with the
officials-have apologized to their
teammates and to the coaches and
they wish to express their deep re-
grets to the Michigan family."
Oosterbaan Says "Never Again"
Oosterbaan went on to say: "We
have always had great pride in our
record of sportsmanship and I
believe justifiably so. You may
be sure that every effort will be
made to see that nothing like this
occurs again."

Crisler, in his letter to Dr. Bevis
and Larkins said, "We owe you
and your institution an apology
for the untimely conduct of one
or two Michigan players in the
game last Saturday.
"I want you to know that we
deplore the unharnessed display of
emotions which has no place in
the relationship between Ohio
State and the University of Michi-
Congratulates Ohio
"Permit me to congratulate you
on Ohio State's fine victory. Your
team defeated us fairly and

squarely and I want to congratu-
late you further and compliment
you on winning the conference
championship, which you boys so
richly deserved.
"Rest assured we will exert every
effort to prevent recurrence of
this incident."
The incident resulted after Ohio
State had scored its final touch-
down of the afternoon, upping the
score to 17-0. In full view of the
nearly 100,000 spectators who
packed the giant bowl, the Michi-
gan team protested vigorously to

the officials that Howard. "Hop-
along" Cassady, Buckeye ace,,had'
fumbled before crossing the goal
line, and that the touchdown.

In the final two minutes of play
eight penalties were called on

National Censorship
Joao Cafe Filho moved last night
to reclaim the presidency of
Brazil-posing the nation's third
government crisis in two weeks.
But a congressional leader pre-
dicted Congress will approve a
resolution barring Cafe's return.
With tension mounting in the
capital, armed troops surrounded
the presidential palace, the Cham-
ber of Deputies, the War Ministry
and other key points. Troops pass-
ing through the streets en route to
their posts were applauded by by-

The government also imposed
censorship on political news in
newspapers, radio stations and
* outgoing news cables.
The area around the presidential
palace was sealed off by troops.

afternoon after he was discharged
from a hospital where he under-
went treatment for the heart at-

leave of absence from the presi-

sage announcing he was taking
over the post from Ramos.
Resolution Declared
But the House of Deputies has
under debate a.resolution designed
to block any such move and Viqira
de Melo, House majority leader,
said its approval was assured. The
resolution declared an extension
of Cafe's disability to hold office.
The opposition to Cafe's return
stems from the belief of some con-
gressmen that he favors a coup
aimed at keeping the winner of the
October presidential election, Jus-
celino Kubitschek, from taking of-
fice Jan. 31. The majority of con-

'Toy Gun Holdup Third in Ten Days;
Disguised Bandit Escapes By Car
Ann Arbor's third holdup in ten days occurred last night when
two men robbed a Kroger store with a toy gun.
One of the men entered the store at Jackson and Maple Streets
about 9:10 p.m. yesterday. Holding his hand in his overcoat pocket
as if he held a gun, he handed the cashier a note demanding all large
Trembling, the cashier was forced to scoop $10 and $20 bills into
a paper bag. The bandit, wearing dark-rimmed glasses with his hat
pulled down over his face, made his escape into the parking lot
where his accomplice was wait-

Used 1950 Olds
The two drove off on Stadium
Blvd. in a 1950 light green Olds-
Detectives found a gray, metal
toy gun in the parking lot where
the escaping bandit dropped it.
They also looked for the note
which the robber had taken with
him, but were unable to find it.
Description of the gunman ap-
pears to be similar to that of the
man who held up the National
Food Store Nov. 12. Police have
been unable to find any trace of
the Food Store bandit or of the
man who held up the State
Theater Nov. 13.
Some time early Sunday morn-
ing the rear door of Slater's Book
Store washbroken into. Police-
man on the beat found two rear
doors open and a window knocked
out of the inner door. Nothing
has been reported missing.
'No Connection With Resignations'
Capt. Rolland Gainsley of .the
uniformed and plain clothes forces
sees no connection between the
string of holdups and the resigna-
tions of 11 officers who have now
left the force.
"We've still got the same num-
ber of men working that we al-
ways have working," Capt. Gains-
ley said yesterday. All members
of the police department .are now
working 12-hour shifts, with the
exception ,of a few officers on traf-
fic details.
Police have no description of
the accomplice who waited in the
car, but they describe the gunman
as being about five feet, two inches
in height, with pock marks on the
part of his face that showed be-
neath his hat. This description is
close to that of the man who fig-
ured in the first holdup.
Until Nov. 12, there had been
no holdups in the Ann Arbor area
since early 1954. in the past ten
days, since the police resignations
were announced, there have been
three robberies.
