SOLVING ATHLETIC PROBLEMS
Of the flood of comment and chat-
ter that followed Dunne's article on
"fussing" there is little that is worth
considering or taking issue with. Two
interviews given out by Michigan pro-
fessors should, however, not be lightly
passed over. Professor Moriarty has
stated that "fraternity favoritism and
not co-education is the thing that's
killing Michigan athletics," while Pro-
fessor Cox in an interview attributed
our athletic troubles to the coaching
system and particularly to Coach
Now that such unpleasant allega-
tions as these have been dragged into
the limelight by publication in metro-
politan dailies it seems only meet th-at
they should receive serious thought
here at home. We have no very good
reasons for believing either of the
allegations, but we are anxious to see
them thoroughly investigated by Mich-
igan's board in control of athletics,
whose duty it is to solve our athletic
problems. Such statements as those
we have mentioned do not work to the
best interests of the University's
standing in the public eye. But cer-
tainly no more harm can be done by
thoroughly airing the questions they
raise, and possibly they will be dis-
proved. Disproving them should lead
to their retraction.
The statements attack the good
name of Michigan's athletic organiza-
tion, and the integrity of some of its
members. They leave a bad taste in
our mouth, and we would like to see
them proved or run to the ground.
MORE ABOUT THE PROBLEMS
As our University has grown, its
organization has become more intri-
cate. We have schools, colleges, com-
mittees, boards, departments, and
councils ad infinitum. Naturally,
there are none of these branches of
the organization which have reached
perfection. Room for improvement
may always be found. Good construc-
tive criticism is to be desired, and
suggestions are wanted.
The members of our board in con-
trol of athletics are specialists. They
nake a study of athletics in general,
and Michigan athletics in particular.
They determine the athletic policy of
the University, and in the last analysis
take the responsibility for our victor-
ies and defeats. When a student, a
faculty member, or alumnus has some
suggestion to make or some criticism
to offer, why not take the matter di-
rectly to that branch of the organiza-
tion which is directly responsible in-
stead of to the, metropolitan press?
Then there will be no chance for mis-
interpreted facts or garbled statements.
Either method of presenting a case
may do good eventually, but one of
them is liable to hurt the University's
reputation when there is little or noth-
ing to be gained.
Let us send suggestions, and crit-
icisms of our athletics to the board in

WANTS CITY NEWS
MR. H. H. IIERBST THINKS IDEA
WOULD BRING TOWN AND GOWN
IN CLOSER SYMPATHY
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Will you allow a suggestion, which
I believe will benefit the student body
of the University, the people of Ann
Arbor outside of the campus, and, per-
haps, Thet Michigan Daily, in a slight
I notice that of late you are devoting
some of your space to local city mat-
ters. This encourages me in the sug-
gestion I am about to make.
Setaside a page or two of your
paper to matters pertaining to the lo-
cal interests of Ann Arbor. Encour-
age communications for the discussion
of such matters. The privilege would
be highly appreciated by many citizens
and taxpayers who are interested in
an efficient and economical city gov-
ernment. Many of the business men
and people down town would take
your paper for that privilege alone.
They would read the other items of
your paper and become familiar with
the work of the University which they
now largely ignore.
Of the 7,000 and more of students
and instructors, nearly all of whom
read The Michigan Daily, there are
many who rarely read the local pa-
pers or interest themselves in the lo-
cal affairs of the city. If a consid-
erable part of your paper was given
up to those matters, they would read
them and gradually become interested
in subjects outside of the campus,
bringing both sections closer together.
There seems to be a prevailing idea
that there is not that mutual sym-
pathy between the town's people and
the campus. Whether that is true or
merely imaginary, my suggestion-if
carried out-may tend to dissipate
This departure may add slightly to
the cost of running The Michigan
Daily. You may, in time, have to en-
large it some, but I believe that the'
additional subscriptions and adver-
tisements would more than offset the
extra cost to say nothing of the ad-
vantages to many of the students who
now rarely read anything outside of
The Michigan Daily and their text
Give it a trial. If no beneficial re-
sults follow, it can easily be aban-
doned. H. H. HERBST.
