According to the AF\ the letters were allowed to accumulate until after the season before being given to the players. Speculation in East Lansing had it that the mail was withheld in order to “prevent the players from being bothered during the season.” Regardless of the motives. Uncle Sam frowns on someone other than the Post Office “losing” letters. Nebraska, Too There were complaints of mail delivery foul-ups at Nebraska last fall, too. At least two Husker gridders have asserted that their mail from pro clubs didn’t reach them until after the season, and reported several other members of the NU club had the same experience. While in some cases such a delay might not be important, there is a chance a player’s future could be ruined by the hold-for-delivery practice. Here’s the way one Nebraska player explained it to this corner: “I was mad, and I think rightfully so. Rome of the letters were from October and early November and had a bearing on my future. Draft Inquiry “One pro club wrote me several times that I was on their draft list, but they wanted to know if 1 was interested in playing pro football before drafting me. They didn’t want to waste a draft if 1 didn’t want to play. “Since 1 didn’t get the letters and answer them, the club thought I didn't want to play and didn’t draft me. However, after I got the letters I called them and, after explaining the situation, got a contract. “I wmild have been in real trouble if I’d missed a chance at pro ball because of the mail delay. And some of the other fellows were pretty mad, too.” Perhaps there will be a change in the mail distribution schedule at NU next fall.
