The Cracker Barrel
By Mike au
Daily Sports Editor

Mr. Dann Discusses Serious Problems
GRANTLAND RICE, the well-known columnist writer, once said,
"hitch-hiking is America's number one sport."
Because of this statement we are taking the liberty of discussing in the
Cracker Barrel the recent proposal made by the Union's executive council
which was to aid in the students' hitch-hiking problems.
The Union asked the City Council to designate certain street cor-
ners as official "hitch-hiking stations." Also, that identification cards
be issued to students who wished to ride via the thumb. These cards
would be shown to the obliging motorist and would constiiute a waiver
on the drivers' liability in the event of an accident.
To complete the plan the Union wants hitch-iiking signs to be posted
on the corners.
We say at the very outset that we think the proposal is useless, stupid
and far too complicated to play around with when there are so many
worthwhile projects that need attention.
Designating certain points as hitch-hiking corners would complicate
the ride problem.
Passing motorists seldom stop for students when they see them bunched
at one point.
The point about cards acting as a waiver for the drivers' liability
doesn't hold water because you can't sign away future liability. No
matter what the card says the driver is still responsible in the eyes of
the law.
Even if the card idea was legally sound. how would the drivers know
about it? Most of those who pick up students are from some cities other
than Ann Arbor. The only answer would be a huge campaign to educate
the motorists of the nation about Michigan's hitch-hiking plan.
Planting huge signs to designate the proper corners would serve to
point out the best place non-students could pick to ask for a ride. This
would greatly increase the number of people at one spot asking for a pickup.
Now, just a few parting words.
Who in the hell says there is a hitch-hiking problem in Ann Arbor?
The last time Jeff Davis, hobo king, was in town he said, "Students
don't have to ride the rails to get home. If you live in a college town you
practicallyget taxi service every time you hitch-hike."
Ann Arbor has been known far and wide by the "thumb crew" as
"easy pickin's." Go out North Main or by Route 12 and see for yourself
how fast the boys are picked up.
Don't ask me why I bothered with this. Summer I guess.

Yesterday students felt one of the greatest joys a true democracy can
offer when they voted on the proper dress for Michigan's Summer Prom.
Just think, in some countries boys and girls can't decide whether
they want a formal, semi-formal, semi-semi-formal, optional fornfal,
compulsory formal, evening formal, afternoon formal, morning formal,
or strict formal.
As each vital issue, such as the Prom, comes before us, we must go to
the polls with the courage of our convictions and the spirit to exercise them.
In that way our democracy can never die.
Athletic Director Fritz Crisler left Tuesday morning for Denver, where
he will serve on the faculty of a college and high school football clinic.
Fritz will stay there two weeks and then return to Ann Arbor to make im-
mediate plans for the fall grid practice.

Sheriff Says
Bets Run High
At County Fair
There are too many "tie-you-
money-in-a-handkerchief-and -dou-
ble-it" games at the Washtenaw
County Fair to suit Sheriff John L.
The heavily-commercialized an-
nual fair has turned into a big-time
carnival-again. Games of chance
on the midway are already luring
the customers and the "strictly agri-
cultural" atmosphere promised for
this year is a hoax. Sheriff Osborne
Even before the fair opened. Os-
borne had his troubles ahead of him.
On an inspection tour, he prohibited
one concession to operate a "harm-
less" number wheel which had a
brake on it. He also ordered another
concession to cater only to adults.
On Tuesday night, Sheriff Os-
borne dropped down to the fair to
"see how things were going." He
found that hawkers were using
"build-ups" for games of chance and
he had to close all of them for sev-
eral hours.
He permitted the games of chance
to open onhthe condition that con-
cessions charge no more than ten
cents for each play on the games
and he ordered no "come-and-try-
your-luck" build-ups.
Deputies had to recover $20 for an
elderly man who claimed he had
been short-changed in a gypsy for-
tune teller's tent on Wednesday
night. When informed of this. Sher-
iff Osborne said he would close that
concession too.
Three sideshows and six rides are
on the other side of the midway but
the performers there played to
sparse crowds. Everybody was play-
ing money for money.
"It goes on like that every year,"
he said. "Carnivals are no good. As
long as supervisors permit carnivals
to be held in their townships, all we
can do is to keep the gambling from
getting out of hand."
Ypsilanti Cubs
Two Scratch Hits Bring
Narrow 1-0_Victory
Bunching two of their team's four
hits in the first inning, the Ypsi Cubs
pushed across a run to beat the Wol-
verine nine 1-0 in a seven inning
contest at Ferry Field last night. The
game, as the score indicates, was a
pitcher's duel with the Cub's vet-
eran Charlie Knox opposing Don
Smith and Bob Saxton of the Varsity.
Ypsi collected only four infield hits
of the scratch ,variety but two safe-
ties combined with a walk produced
the game's only tally. Michigan got
only one hit, however, a single to
right in the fifth by Harry Anderson.
Smith who worked the first six
innings struck out four and walked
four but was in trouble most of the
time. Knox on the other hand was
in difficulty in only the fifth when
the Wolverine's put runners on first
and second with two out.
In the Wolverine half of the fifth
after Don Lund had struck out and
Strat Brown had popped to third,
Anderson came through with his hit.
Smith waited Knox out for a walk.
But the cagy Ypsi right-hander then
forced the next batter to pop, ending
the inning.
Tonight Michigan closes their
summer season, meeting the Detroit
Naval Recruiting Station nine, one
of the best in the Detroit area.

Senators Trim Yankees Again;
Giant Homers Whip Brooklyn

From Associated Press Summaries
You sometimes wonder how the
Yanks can seemingly lose so many
games and yet walk off with pennant
after pennant.
The answer is perfectly obvious,
they only win when they have to or
when the other team is so bad and
the Yanks are so good that they just
can't help but win.
The Senators plastered the World
Champs again yesterday, but I dare
say that nobody thinks that it will
cost the classy boys from the Bronx
a pennant. A loss with a 12 game
lead is not particularly serious, even
when repeated three days in a row.
Another New York team is still do-
ing right well for itself. Those Polo
Grounds sluggers who many Gotham
sports writers think hit the ball bet-
ter than the Yanks are still pounding
away. Led by Mel Ott who got*two.
the Giants pounded out five round-
trippers yesterday to enable Hal
Schumacher to coast to an easy 8-0
The Detroit Tigers are evidently
just about out. Eai'ly season sensa-
tions they are now but one game
ahead of the White Sox in fifth place
and on the basis of recent perfor-
mances it won't be long now.

Olson States Need
For More Flexible
Dr. Willard C. Olson, of the Uni-
versity Elementary School, declared,
in yesterday's education series lec-
ture at University High School, that
there is a need for mire flexibility
of method and curricular experi-
ences in the nation's schopls. -
"The assumption that ood teach-
ing will enable all children to master
prescribed bodies of content and ac-
quire high competence in skills at
standard age levels finds no support
in the research studies," Dr. Olson
said. "The comparative and com-
petitive practices which are the sur-
vivals of earlier educational theory
and lack of knowledge of growth
and individual differences should
gradually disappear."
