It was one of (lie J Invgest crowds jo attend a wrestling : show here Cor some time and the [ crowd was apparently well pleased 1 by the rough stuff exhibited by both principals. The Incorrigible Slnkey went on a biting spveo and dug his Incisors into Ihe, Bat til any convenient point whenever k became necessary for him to bronk u hold. His Infuriated opponent could do nothing worse than it bit of gouging ""d choking, nnd to keep things from celling monotonous 'Sitikcy alternated his biting wllh some ivell directed kicks.

I Pure No Matter How Painful Michigan basaed only one en' gagcmcnl in 1930. Tho Maize and Blue edged out four of eight opponents in typical Michigan style in 1037. Thai would indicate that Kipkc's coaching was highly satis factory during the past campaign, arid Anderson had them ravin? about the Wolverine line before an?. after the rout by Minnesota am' im'lil the fourth consecutive pastin' by Ohio State evidently clinched Ihe argument for the dissenters. Indeed, it was the Kipkc-drilled outfits' inability to handle the Gophers and Buckeyes in traditional contests that unsealed the head man. At bolh Michigan and Georgia college authorities, ; in public utterance of policy, favored moderation and no undue emphasis, and at Ihc tame time expected to play har< schedules including inlersectiona' productions. Naturally, the student.' and old grnris wanted many victories, few or n» defeats. And sc did some of the college authorities . Kipkc's exit proves once more I Ihat the venerable Fielding H. Yos' still retains the upper hand in tbr athletic scl-up at Michigan. Criticf among- the alumni have loudly shouted that Yost interferes witr the coaching slaff. At the close of last season, they petitioned that (he slaff be let atone, and it war announced that Kipkc would have a free rein. One explanation of Kipke's uet ting the gate is that Michigan slil was ;i bit apprehensive about wha' it evidently considered somcthin' ol a scandal. Simply Han Out of Good Boys Whatever scandal existed wn? .self created, for it was'the board o! athletic, control itself which announced that subsidization was suspected in connection with certain freshmen. Inspired by Die presence of Tom Harmcn, tx four-letter lad of Gary, Ind.. and three or four youngsters from Ki.sko School, it is said tha' official criticism was directed at - The following year they would find themselves i in the bracketed class, and so on. .. 4*4 BY-LAWS — Amc-ni; Ihc other outstanding changes in I lie by-laws was the stipulation that each team shall play at least six games in the loop In order to qualify for the championship . . . That means that each team shall be forced to play almost half of u,e remaining members, thereby tightening the championship reins again There was also a decision regarding the addition of members . Upon the vote of the 'conference schools may be admitted . . . But they shall be under probation for a period of one year . . . During that lime they shall have a schcd- ul(> in keeping with the body and adhere (o the other rules it is understood that Para?onid is planning to make application for admittance. £ * i GRID—All four members cf the University of Arkansas' famous passing combination—Divighl sloa>- nnd Jack Bobbins, halfbacks, and Jim Bcnlon and Ray Hamilton ends—are very much in demand by the pros ...

At any rate, the reason the board advances uuofttcially . . . tha' Kipke didn't seem lo get the mcsl out or the material al hand anc 1 was generally inefficient, ... is somewhat superficial at best. II is unreasonable lo believe that genera! inefficiency would cloak a coach as young as Kipkc with such suddenness. Kipke illustrated what lie cottld do with material frcm 1930 to 1.133, inclusive. He was n young genius sought by Yale then. 4 So (he more logical answer is that S'irry Kipke is just another coach who ran out of the type of hoys who make coaches great—and ihat Michigan can't lake it.
