Madison, Wis., Jan. 6. 'The break
' In Big Ten loot ball relations between
' Wisconsin and Ohio state univcrsi-
ties became more acute today with
s s statement from Coach John R.
Richards of Wisconsin, intimating;
r that he would rcsi?i if Ohio State

j Richards' statement expressed his
''personal disappointment" oer t.iil
lire to arrange a .panic with Ohio
. "'State for 1921. declaring "other
: Wisconsin men agree with me that
We did not get fair dealing."
' 1 Unsportsmanship Charged.
Thinly veiled charges of unsports

i the main reason for Richards'
i declaration that "no team I coach
; will ever play Ohio State."
- "Foot ball is only worth while as
! an intercollegiate sport when mu-
'tual regard atul sportsmanship pre
f vail. There has often been discernible
.- in the middle west a disposition, on
I the part of .institutions just arriving
athletically, to consider athletics a
standard of excellence in the whole
I gamut of university duties.
