M Club to Continue Fight for Shakeup MINNEAPOLIS (AP)-fhe tlni- verslty.of Minnesota administration and the alumni lettermen's M Club were at loggerheads today wer thi future of Athletle Dlrec- t« Ike Armstrong and Football Coach Murray Warmath, The cleavage grew over the weekend amid charges and counter-charges. Spearheading the drive for dismissal of Armstrong and Warmath, after the most disastrous grid season in Gopher history, were directors of the M Club. In the opposite camp was the university administration headed by Dr. J. L. Morrill. The University Board of Regents appeared caught in-between, but was on record with Morrill as favoring retention of the athletic department's top men. While their Joint statement was unanimously approved by the 16 regents attending a long meeting Friday, it did not reflect unanimous feeling on the part of the regents. It was agreed at the meeting to have a six-member committed make an appraisal of the athletift program" for. consideration by the university administration and regents. Among the questions unanswered today was whether the M Club president, Leland Johnson of Minneapolis, will be a committee member. Club directors met Saturday and formally requested the ouster of Armstrong and Warmath. The directors termed the decision by Morrill and regents as "arbitrary and ill-advised." "In our judgment," they said, "the situation is such that it is imperative that the university remove the present athletic director and football coach at the earliest possible moment." In a statement after the regents' meeting, Morrill said "athletic entertainment ... is not the pri- mary purpose of the Institution or the Justification of its existence." To this, thft M Club answered; "A sound and aggressive athletic program 1* something more than 'athletic entertainment,' and no one Is contending that it Is the 'primary purpose of the institution or the Justification for its existence'." The statement by the regents and Dr. Morrill said ups and downs of Big Ten football should be well known, considering recent experience of such teams as Michigan State and Northwestern, Situation Denied Serious The M Club directors answered: "Our deplorable athletic situation Is not to be excused by the fact that some other Big Ten teams have lost some football games." Dr. Morrill replied. He said he was "very sorry about the action by the M Club and the more loyal and thoughtful members of the M Club will be just as sorry, I feel sure." "We had hoped for help of M men to improve Minnesota athletics," the president said. "It is disappointing that the club's board of directors has decided to work against, instead of with, the university." Presiding at the M Club directors meeting was the organization's president, Johnson. A day before Johnson was one of the six men named by the regents and Morrill to study the Gopher athletic situation. Johnson said Sunday he was "waiting to see" if Morrill takes him off the committee. He said he told the board meeting he would serve on the committee if asked to. Dr. Morrill declined to give a yes or no answer when asked if Johnson's part in the M Club statement would permit him to serve on the fact-finding group.

Regent Lester Malkerson has said -he went along with other regent* in keeping the status quo "only for academic reasons." "If it were a straight matter of getting a new athletic director, I would vote for it," Malkeraon aaid. Favors M Clnb Stand Another regent, Richard Griggs of Duluth, asked an immediate change in the athletic department and football leadership. His motion at the regents' meeting for ouster of Armstrong and Warmath did not get a second. He said later that he was in "complete conformity with the M Club statement." Warmath was out of the city over the weekend. Armstrong said he would make no comment regarding the developments.

Netters Plan Test Matches PERTH, Australia (AP) — U.S. Davis Cup Captain Perry Jones today ordered a series of test matches among his four team members to determine singles assignments for the interzone tennis finals against the Italians this weekend. Pressure battles under tournament conditions were scheduled to start today, but were postponed until Tuesday at the request of Ham Richardson, America's No. 1 ranked player. Richardson asked for a day off to rest. Jones said that Richardson will play Barry MacKay of Dayton, Ohio, Tuesday and Peruvian Alex Olmedo will take on Earl Buchholz Jr., 18-year-old member of the team from St. Louis. Soth matches will be best two-of-three affairs. The next day's pairings will be juggled, with Richardson meeting Olmedti and MacKay playing Buchholz. "We want to prove to our own and to Ham's satisfaction that he is in the best physical shape and that as the No. 1 player he deserves to play against the Italians," Jones said. "If he cannot prove that, then we will be forced to use somebody else." Jones said the result of the head-to-head matches would not bind him in the selection of singles players. But the importance of the tests could not be minimized.
