PO TP OUR R I
POTPOURRI. a medley or mixture - Webster
BY WAY OF INTRODUCTION: Our Potpourri is going to live up to its
definition this summer containing everything in general and nothing
in particular. It will appear at irregular intervals throughout the next
eight weeks and, all other things being equal, will mainly concern itself,
with sports. But enough of that.
Biggest news on the Michigan sports front in the past fortnight has
been the retirement of the great Fielding H "Hurry Up" Yost from the
post of University athletic director and the appointment of grid coach
Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler. Next in importance is the signing up of
Michigan's sophomore outfielder Dick Wakefield by the Detroit Tigers
for a reported $42,500. There's much more to Master Richard's story
than that but we'll save it for later.
On June 20 and 21 several Michigan trackmen visited the lovely little
vill ge of Palo Alto in California to compete for the National Collegiate
Athketic Association track and field championships. The University finished
in 11th place with a total of 8 117 points thanks to the efforts of Warren
Breidenbach and Don Canham. Breidenbach was second to Indiana's
Campbell Kane in the 880 while Canham high jumped 6 feet 23/ inches for
a sixth place tie.
AS was to be expected the University of Southern California walked
away with the title for the seventh successive time. The Trojans
crashed through with 812 points; Indiana was second with 50 while the
University of California came through with 49/.
And speaking of track reminds us that several Russians recently came
close to breaking Paul Robeson's record for running backwards. At least so
it seems from some newspaper reports we've seen of "orderly" Soviet "re-
By the way we have been told by several individuals that the com-
munistic elements in this country should be treated less causticly in the

Coach Crisler Succeeds Yost
As University's Athletic Head
BY A. P. BLAUSTEIN
On June 20 the Board of Regents
officially brought to a close the ath-
letic career of one of football's great-
est immortals when Fielding H. "Hur-'
ry Up" Yost was retired from the post
of athletic director and grid coach
Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler was chosen
as his successor.
The move came as a surprise to no
one. Yost reached the age of 70 on
April -30 and therefore had to auto-
matically retire at the end of the
school year; Crisler was his logical
"Fritz" was assistant athletic di-
rector of Chicago from the time he
received his degree in 1922 until 1930.
During the next two years he was
football coach and athletic director
at Minnesota and until he came here
in 1938 held those same posts at
Since 1901, Yost, who is affection-
ately known as the "Grand Old Man,"
has been intimately associated with
the University. It was in that year
that the first of his famed "point-a-
minute" teams won all of its 11
games and scored 550 points while
holding its opponents scoreless.
His record? Here is a paragraph
from the University Athletic News
which sums it all up:
"In all, Yost coached 25 Michigan
teaems-1901 through 1906 with the,
single exception of the 1924 team.
In these 25 years under Yost the Wol-
verines won 164 games, tied 10 and
lost 29. They scored 5,380 points to
800 for their opponents. Eight times
they won or tied for the champion-
ship of the Big Ten-and during 11
of the 25 years Michigan was not a
member of the Conference. This'
was 1907 through 1917.'
Although in 1901 he had the am-
bition "to coach across the contin-
ent and settle in California," the
chance to coach at the University
changed his mind-and he has never
been sorry. 1
The record was winning 57 foot-
ball games, losing eight and tieing
only three. And Yost came through.
When the University established
its department of physical education
in 1921, Yost was made Director of
Athletics and has since that time
built out of athletic revenue a plant
which is worth approximately $4,000,-
000. He is responsibile for the Mich-
igan Stadium, which incidentally
holds 87,000 persons, the Sports
Building, the Yost Field House, the
Women's Athletic Building, the 18-
hole University golf course and the
Michigan Ice Rink.
Crisler received his post at Chi-
cago after a brilliant college career
there where he was named as an
All-American end, an All-Confer-
ence basketball guard and qualified
for Phi Beta Kappa.
