By JIM KLOBUCHAR MINNEAPOLIS MP) — Does the answer to Minnesota's football mediocrity lie in a stepped up recruiting recruiting program thrusting beyond the school's normal drawing area? In the opinion of Dr. James L. Morrill, the university president, it does not. "Generally said, "Minnesota will have its best teams when they are made up of the best Minnesota high school athletes and those from neighboring neighboring areas." Among the nation's educators, Morrill has been one of the more vigorous opponents of the trend toward the commercialization of college athletics. As one who headed the athletic committee at Ohio State before the war, he considers himself sympathetic to what he regards as the legitimate needs of a college athletic program. "But this systematic combing j for football players makes no j sense," he said. Of the current high-pressurism in college football, football, he believes "we have become the victims of unwitting practices in the past and we have got ourselves ourselves into a box," The school administration and BOWL nKC'RKATION LEAGUE , United Car B.ilP.i ...952 910 904—2766 the board of regents obviously of the coaching staff said.

Minnesota Minnesota played on virtually its own terms in the 1930s. In an era ofj power football it had some of thej biggest and most powerful players in the land. Mainly, it still has that type. But where Minnesota was winning titles with Minnesota players then, it isn't doing it now. Football has opened up. There is a greater stress on speed and passing. Coupled with it is a far ranging sleuthing by many major schools for football talent around the country. By and large, Minnesota has resisted the trend. On the Gophers' full preseason roster of 61 players, 12 were from outside the state, or 19 per cent. Of the 12, five—Bobby Cox, Billy Martin, Perry Gehring, Paul Barrington Barrington and Jim Reese—played enough to win letters. Most of the others weren't on the varsity.
