Winter Business
WITH THE PASSING of fall and football, the wintry blasts bring
a new function to Head Coach Bennie Oosterbaan and staff-
recruiting. This "bad business" of collegiate athletics which does
so'much for the caliber of play received a real shot in the arm in
the Big Ten last year. This shot in the arm,'in the form of the basis
of need aid plan which cuts out the money bidding for players, also
was a boost for the men who do the gathering of talent for Michigan.
Oosterbaan feels that the new policy is a big help in the following
way. The product for exchange is no longer dollars for a players'
ability, but an education as expense free as necessary. Selling educa-
tional advantages of his school is definitely an easier task materially
and morally. We've got plenty to offer and you don't have to sneak
around in performing the job.
"Not' only is it easier," says Oosterbaan, "but it's also more
pleasant. It's no good at all when you have to start talking money, and
sometimes we used to have to do it."
Both Oosterbaan and athletic head H. O. "Fritz" Crisler dislike
the whole business of recruiting. Crisler has stated his feeling-
"Recruiting was becoming nothing more than a rat race. That's the
biggest reason I quit coaching." Oosterbaan feels the same way but
has hopes for the new program.
"Now the thing we talk about when a prospective football player
comes to see us is the advantages he will have in getting his education
at Michigan. Comparatively it's our strongest point and since we have
to sell something, it's a better situation all around.
Special Kind of 'Scouts' .. .
W'HILE ON THIS SUBJECT of recruiting at Michigan it might be
interesting to note just what besides the accent on educational
values goes on. According to Oosterbaan the top-notch high school
athlete has the following experience ahead of him if noticed by the
coaching staff or "scouts."
The "scouts" are not actually that in the normal sense of the
word. They, are not paid by the University Athletic Department.
They are instead alumni interested in the fate of Michigan football
or high school coaches who want to see their proteges make good
on the Stadium gridiron.
Two methods bring the player physically to the campus. Either a
Michigan coach calls an alum, the alum hunts down the picked
prospect, and brings him to Ann Arbor or an Alum or some high
school coach takes the initiative and just brings prospect up. This,
plus pep talks on the values of good old Michigan to the prospect
in his locality, Is the extent of the ardent alumni's contribution.
At least it is as far as we know. Rumors and whisperings of
specific cases of alumni adding a little more have been heard, but
can't be proved.-We'll leave them till another time.

Gagnier Stars
In Monday's meet, the Blue
team led by Captain, Ed Gagnier
thoroughly trounced the Maize,
871/2-401/2. Gagner finished first
in seven of the eight events and
tied for first in the eighth with
Nino Marion of the Maize.
The Maize were undoubtedly
handicapped by the loss of their
caiptain, Jim Hayslett, who was
with an exam. i 1
Probably the most promising
performance delivered in Mon-
da'y's meet was by Al Stall. Stall
was a solid freshman performer
last year, but he has taken a little
longer than normal to get in
shape this season. His perform-
ance, which included three sec-F
and-place finishes, made Loken
feel aloe better.
Vacation Action
Today's meet will conclude the
home practice meets before the
Wolverines' opener with Minne-
sota on January 11.
However, some of the gymnasts
are planning to go to the annual
National Gymnastics Clinic which
will be held in Sarastota, Fla.,
during Christmas vacation.
Florida-bound will be Ed Cole,

WrrH THE BOY on campus the coaches take over. It should be
noticed here that only on campus can the coaching staff begin
their pitch to the individual.. It's illegal elsewhere.
Along , with the educational emphasis it's the general aim to
impress: the high school senior as much as possible. Constant atten-
tion is the rule. Lunch. with, the coaches,. a tour of the campus, usually
with a prominent varsity. player who excells' at the same position as
the visitor; maybe a look at some of the Michigan games on film, a
discussion of football, at this school accompanied by an interesting
booklet filled with explanations,, records, and an insight into the
football setup, and dinner with some of the players fills the agenda.
At the end of this day it's the hope that another Michigan student
(football player), has been added to the list.
The, above-mentioned pamphlet called " Pootball at Michigan" is
interesting in that, it bolsters faith in education's importance in the
local recruiting and removes doubts that the program is just some-
thing they, tell reporters. Of the sixteen pages in the pamphlet, six
of them deal with what can be found in. the classroom.
Along. with campus impression duties, Oosterbaan and staff must
meet a stiff schedule of speaking dates, dinners, and football banquets
to spread the glory of Michigan around the Midwest. Best of the
Michigan "speaking staff" is of course Wally Weber, whose multi-
syllable after-dinner speils are becoming legend.
And that takes care of the mechanics of recruiting and this
oolumn-almost, I'd Just like to add that if the program is as
sincere as the man that runs it, it most likely is on the up and up.

Scoring System Explamed

Collegiate wrestling, unlike the
no-holds-barred, farcical variety
engaged in by the "professionals,"
is not designed solely for the en-
tertainment of the spectators.
Basically, it resembles other
collegiate sports, involving. a eon-
test of skill between teams. The
procedure of this contest is best
explained by looking at the rules.
In an ordinary dual meet eight
members of each team flair off
in separate matches : according to
