AUTHORITIES at the Univer

Bill Hargiss, football mentor, the
conditions on the
squad. But Arch
sports editor of
the Chicago Tri
writes thus about
the nasty attack
ty or Kansas has ousted Kill
Hargiss, because of unsatisfac
tory conditions on the squad.
The unsatisfactory conditions
developed after Kansas lost to
Oklahoma, 21 to 6.
“Of course I do not believe for
an instant that the disappoint
ing showing of the Jayhawkers
against one of their leading Big
Six rivals had anything to do
with the dismissal of Hargiss,
because I have read repeatedly
that ithe universities expected
coaches to model the lives of
young men and that victory af
ter all was unimportant.

"So it must be that the Kansas
academic leaders felt that Hargiss
was not doing a good job of mod
“No doubt there will be some
who will entertain the debasing
thought that Hargiss was re

as measured by victory and defeat.
But this Is un-American and, of
course, will be ridiculed by the
Mr. Ward goes on to comment
that you can’t escape the idea that
a coach’s life is no bed of roses.
“Suggestion that he is entitled to
more salary than the average in

fierce yelping from educational
circles, but have you ever heard
of a professor being fired because
his boys were out-smarted by a
group from a neighboring school
in the season's big cerebral test ?

send his charges into a stadium

Montana last week he scored
two touchdowns single-handed
and ripped through the Grizzly
line at leisure. He is playing his
second year on Calland’s eleven.
Besides Smith there is Cy Ger

team; George Wilson, two-year
veteran and 1930 champion long
distance scorer; and Genio Plas
tino, a young reserve from the
home of the world's largest pulp

Genio is the lightest man on the
