re the Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Those who seek evidence in score-
ditor board records appear to be of one
mind in pronouncing Michigan's past
rk, Jr football season more or less of a fail-
rn, Jr.
ey ure. It may be pertinent to point out
. Pack that the mere winning of the two de-
Vighell cisive games on the schedule could not
Cooley have compensated Michigan for the
Th.2r loss she suffered even before these
[anager games were played-a loss which may
[anagerbe characterized as a betrayal of Mich-
anager igan spirit on the part of those who
anager attempted, and with considerable suc-
cess, to imbue the student mind with
Roeer the ethics of the prize fight rather
than'the sentiments of clean sportman-'
Rice ship. 'The mischief was worked at a
Alian recent mass meeting where speakers
Brawn made frenzied appeals to the "fight 'em"
spirit of the team and the student
