Writing on the position taken by
Michigan in regard to the Chicago
conference and the attitude of the
school toward athletics in general,
Casper Whitney criticises the spirit
of the school severely. Part of his
".Michigan represents the spirit that
subordinates all to the winning. From
tho days of open .professlonnllsm-r-subsequently
cleaned tip It has
seemed to be ruled by Its paid coaches
and managers, whose chief and only
concern Is to make winning teams. It
Is in opposition at present because it
refuses to subscribe to the excellent
regulations of tho conference col

endorsed by the best of Its own
