Another Rumor
R UMORS are flying again. The latest is the speculation on a pos-
sible move of Michigan Athletic Director H. O. "Fritz" Crisler to
the Pacific Coast Conference as its new head.
Nothing definite yet, but its still top news. Crisler hasn't really
said "No." Instead he has been cleverly parrying the press with state-
ments to the effect that yes, he'd listen to a new job offer just as he'd
listen to any favorable proposal, but he is happy at( Michigan. The
Coast has been just as evasive. A spokesman relates that he doesn't
know whether Crisler is being considered and that a decision probably
wouldn't be made until next monith anyway.
Related to this rumor is the $60,000 offer from Texas A&M to
Michigan State Coach Duffy Daugherty. This is actually out of the
rumor stage, however, as Daugherty is seriously considering it.
On the otf r hand, Crisler's. move hasn't much more founda-
ti6n than the prophesy of a few weeks ago that Bennie Oosterbaan
was going to resign his position as head coach and move into the As-
sistant Athletic Director's job. .Oosterbaan is still head coach.
And yet one can't completely discredt a sports rumor because
of denials or evasive, answers to prying questions. Coaches have been
known to quit, players. have been withheld from or started in ball-
games, and trades have been made all at the end of heated denials
or reverse information.
But, all in all, a rumor is a rumor until something definite has
been decided- The Oosterbaan incident hung on for two weeks until
disproved. The Crisler story is in its second day and picking up
momentum.
Right now Crisler is in Chicago and couldn't be reached for
commeit last night. He must be hounded, however, until he makes a
decision or someone makes it for him one way or the other.
That's the nature of a rumor. The press can't quit once its
started for fear of being second with the story. The public just has
to wait and do its own speculating on the truth of the matter based
on the bits of information which continually lend new angles to the
story.
But in the end, all must wait for something to happen. The spec-
ulation r~ally doesn't add much.

Against Souti
Bill Wright is the new "quarter-
back" of Michigan's basketball
team.
This was coach Bill Perigo's way
of praising his little guard, who
to date has been the team's big
gun.
Wright will be out to further
prove Perigo's claim when Michi-
gan hosts South Dakota State to-
night at 8 p.m. in Yost Fieldhouse.
Before the season started, many
sportswriters designated Jack Lew-
is as the Wolverines' quarterback
(playmaker), but as the records
of the Pittsburgh and Nebraska
game show, it was Wright rather
than Lewis who led the team.
In the Pittsburgh game, Wright
was high scorer for the Wolverines
with 17 points, and against Ne-
braska he scored 12 points in the
first half on outside set shots. This
was the main reason for the break-
ing of the Cornhuskers' zone de-
fense.
Wright also excelled for Michi-
gan on defense. He was the man
mainly responsible for Nebraska
coach Jerry Bush lamenting "we
couldn't get started against that

MICHIGAN IMPRESSIVE:
Swim Squad Opens Year at 'Gala'

By CARL RISEMAN

9 1

Few teams have made as sensa-
tional a debut as the Michigan
swimming squad; did Saturday
night at the 23rd Michigan 'Gala.'
While the 'Gala' did not go by
team scoring, it was apparent to
the nearly 1,000 interested specta-
tors at the Varsity Exhibition Pool
that the 1557-58 edition of the
Wolverine swim squad had gotten
off to a very, fast start.
"The Gala was a very fine mkeet
loaded with' top competition and
entertainment," commented swim
coach Gus Stager. "But one of the
main purposes of the Gala was to
evaluate our team."
Under the pressure of swimmers
like ex-M star Bumpy Jones, and
former MSU stars John Dudeck
and. Paul Reinke, both freshmen
and varsity men gave commend-
able showings.
Michigan Swimmers Win
In every single event, despite
the fact that there was open com-
petition, a Michigan swimmer won
the race.

Tony Tashnick, a Sophomore
from Detroit MacKenzie, swam
the fastest 200-yd. butterfly in
his career, and set a new Michigan
and pool record in the process.
But in the same race freshmen
Dave Gillanders came within one
and one tenth second of Tashnfck's
time with a 2:11.9.
"The fastest time Gillanders
swam in high school was around
2:20," Stager said. "In Saturday's

time trials he did a 2:17 and then
clipped more time off in the
finals."
Stars Perform Well
Dick Hlanley and Cy Hopkins
performed very well for an early
season showing. Coach Stager be-
lieved that Hopkins was coming
along fine in the breaststroke
which, under new ruling, requires
a swimmer to keep his head above
the surface instead of submerged.

College grads over forty
suffer from a decline
in their earning power.
13 TRUE _ FALSE
False. In fact the older they get the,
more money they earn. Statistics
show that the average man's earning
power declines rapidly after he
reaches 45. The college grad's income
is still going sharply up at this point.

College educated men tend to
be bachelors to a greater degree,
than average American males.
EETRUKE UPALSE
False. Recent studies show that Mr.
College Grad is no longer avoiding
the marriage license bureau the way
he used to. In fact statistics now in-
dicate that having a college degree
actually lessens the probability of a
man leading the bachelor life.
