THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Tuesday, November 27, 1951
During the past several weelis, several new
developments have appeared on the national hori
zons concerning one of America's favorite pastimes,
Part of the furor was touched off by a state
ment by Judge Saul Streit, who sentenced some
of the basketball players Involved In the scandals
of last spring-. At the same 4ime, he commented
that football too has dirty hands. Widespread
recruiting of football players wonld scandalize
the nation if full details were known, he said.
Several colleges including Michigan, William and
Mary, Ohio State and Denver university were
among those unfavorably mentioned by the
The judge's statement contributed to a demand
by Maryland's governor, Theodore R. McKeldin,
that the athletic set-up at the University of Mary
land be investigated. Judge Streit had pointed out
that 60 of Maryland's 97 bowl-bound gridders are
from out of the state. Maryland's football coach,
Jim Tatum, former head mentor at the Univer
sity of Oklahoma, said he welcomed the probe.
Democrats charged that republican Governor Mc
Keldin was making a "political" inquiry.
Before the season started, the president of
William and Mary resigned because he was in
favor of the old scholarship system, while his
successor, a retired admiral, favored de-empha- which might need attention, he says, are the

are influential in promoting among young boys
a distorted idea of what It really means to play
football; these are the ones who think that foot
ball players will have no trouble finding Jobs
because everyone is glad to hire them.
". . . It would be my guess that largely because
of widespread recruiting practices, the term foot
ball player has become synonymous with ape,
and it is often better for the applicant to omit
mention of his gridiron record until after he has
the Job . . .
"Bigtime football Is a poor bargain for those
who play the game."
Grantland Rice presented what he considered
the three major schools of thought on the football
1. Those who think that football is fine as it
2. Those who enjoy football, but think that
it has many ills that need to be remedied.
3. Those who think that football "has grown
out of bounds" and should be abolished as an

In an article reprinted from The Atlantic
Monthly, Reader's Digest presented the views of
Allen Jackson, member of Michigan's football
team for throe years. Some of Jackson's views on
"One of the most harmful aspects of college
football having become 'big time' Is that the spon
taneity Ms been taken out of the sport . . .
"Reason now tells me that football is only
a single, minor part of a college education and
hoald not be more important than other parts.
Football is one of the nation's major bus
inesses. Time was when the football team was a
bunch of nice guys who played the game be
cause they enjoyed it. Now many of the players
find that the game is no longer fun, but long
hours of hard work. The old motto: "It's not whe
ther you won or lost, but how you played the
game" has become obsolete. The new motto is
"Win or ELSE!" Behind this motto is the philoso
phy that somebody has to lose, but it had "better
not be us!"
Fans enjoy seeing a good game of football. But
indications are that the game is being ruined by
people who though lew in
fces "win or else"

are darkly frowned upon if you miss practice for

To The Editor:
The University Committee on
Convocations was highly gratified
at the splendid turnout for the
convocation of Nov. 19, featuring
Maurice Hindus. So splendid, in
ract, was tne attendance that the
facilities of the Union were
strained to their utmost.
The Director and staff of the
Union deserve the highest praise
for the manner in which they
rose to the occasion. An apology
is in order, however, to those
who came and could not find a
The decision to hold the convo
cation in the Union ballroom was
made after prolonged debate in
the committee. The ballroom and
the Coliseum are the only places
on the campus which can be con
sidered for an All-University con
vocation. Neither is completely
satisfactory. The committee erred
in its forecast of attendance. We
shall not make the same mistake
The 8,000 people who were
jammed in the Union proved
that University community will
support worthwhile convocations.
The Convocations Committee,
for its part, promises that it will
do its best to bring to the campus
programs which are worthy of
your support; we shall bend every
effort to make certain that ade
quate accommodations for every
one will be available at all future
