PRINCE ALBERT THE NATIONAL JOY SMOtft - BY'JERRY BROiVDFIKI.D NKA Service Sports Wriler NEW YORK, Feb. 14. — Frite Crlsler's leavlno the Ivy-clad, hal- oweri walls of Princeton for the justling. mldwestcrn atmosphere of Michigan would be a wise move on ils part even if thc athletic directorship were not in the oiling. Gridiron success, as everyone should be willing to agree, runs 'n cycles. In 1935, Old Nassau had an un- jlemlshed season of nine victories. Tiie Tiger has since lilt the skids, slowly but surely. In '30 it won four. ,ost two. and tied two. Last season it won four and lost four. And prospects for 1938 do not 'iidicate an undefeated season by any means. Michigan, on the other hand, is TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1938 MICHIGAN'S MAN Leaving his post at Princeton to I take over the head football' coaching job at Michigan, Her-j bert O. (Fritz) Crlsler replaces] Harry Kipke.who was dismissed! by the Wolverines late last falti It was understood that Crlsler? would also assume the position ns director of athletics sometime within the next three years, j due for n rise after four years of wallowing in the tootball doldrums. In 1934-'35-'3G. they were battered from pillar to ixist. but the Wolverines started to snap out of it in '31, Tiiey won four and lost four, which practically made Harry Kipke's Inst season at Ann Arbor a howling success. Fritz Crisler will have a veteran Michigan team with which lo work next fall. And Michigan is just about due. The North Texas Twins Deliner and Elmer Brown are twins. Delmer (he looks like Elmer) is one-fourth of North Texas State Teachers' crack relay (earn. Elmer i he looks like Delmer) is another fourth. Only two people can tell them apart at first glance. The two are Delmer and Elmer Brown. The only others who can make a good stab at it are Elaine and Wayne Hideout, also twins, and the other half of this colorful relay quartet which currently Is one of the giddiest things in the world for sports writers to flifiire out. Somehow, twins can tell twins apart. Last spring, while returning home from the Penn Relays, nel- mer and Elmer Brown stopped in Kuoxville to cat. Elmer puttered around the car a btt while Delms-r went inside [he restaurant and sal down. A moment later. Delmer left to wash' his hands.' ! i • In came -Elmer. He sat down opposite to ivliere Delmer had been sitting. The waitress returned and, just a bit puzzletl, moved the 'silver and napkin over in front of him. Bat for Eacli Other Then Elmer decided lo wash his hands. He left the (able. A few seconds later Deltncr returned and sat down where he originally had been sealed. The distracted waitress came back, shitted the table service again and .then burst out wltli, "Now then,'young nitin ... if you'll make up your mind just where you'll sit I'll take 'your order!" Delmer and Elmer broad jump In addition (o running .on tiie medley relay team. No one could tell the difference, so Delmer once jumped for Elmer in a dual meet with the University of Texas. He won second place for Elmer, but wns very careful not to do better. He had saved first place for himself. Once Delmer wns sick for a. Avcck and Elmer went to all his classes for him. Fortunately, they were course. 1 ; he wasn't taking at the time, so he was able to doubW up. Elmer went so far as to take three examinations for Ills brother, and insists he did better than Delmer himself could have done.
