jv December 19, .1941 The Herald, Bessemer, Mtciugan 0 OF MICHIGAN ITrHFTlCNEWS (ORIGIN OF LITTLE BROWN JUG; WRESTLING, HOCKEY AND BASKETBALL EVENTS Clarence Munn Has Good Record In the 10 years in which Clarence ""Biggy" Munn has served either as assistant or head football coach at iour diiferent institutions no team has ever been beaten worse than 130. After graduating from Minnesota ; in 1932, Munn helped coach the Gopher line that fall. He then moved to Albright as head coach and later accepted a position as line coach at Syracuse. In 1939 he joined Michigan's staff in the same capacity. Teams of these four schools, in Munn's years on the" staff, won 60 games, lost 12 and tied eight. Four limes otherwise unbeaten teams lost I one game by a 7-6 margin. This has happened to Michigan twice, Minnesota inflicting the defeat both times, and it occurred also when Munn was at Albright and at Syracuse.

Roberts bought the jug for that a- onnt in 1903 and it was used to ;carry water for the Wolverine grid- lers to Minneapolis where they were :ed 6-6 by Minnesota. It was left iere and the Gophers decorated it told Michgan when the teams Inext met in 1909 that the Wolver- ies could have it back only if they ·on it.

Bight ot its games are with the two other Big Ten teams playing intercollegiate hockey, Illinois and Minnesota.

Virtually every Boy Scout council in the State has enlisted in the campaign and will. distribute 250,000 of the stickers to Michigan motorists. Various civic and fraternal organizations, as well as city and county officials are also cooperating. With traffic on Michigan's streets and highways far ahead of any previous year, we predict this holiday season will see. the biggest .transportation rush yet"'recorded. It will result In added traffic hazards and every effort must be exerted to hold motor car fatalities and accidents to a minimum .
