Good Overshadovs Evil
On Gridiron: Vol Prexy
KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Nov.
(;p)Dr. C. E. Brehm, Univers
ity of Tennessee president, said
today he believes the good fea
tures of college football "over
shadows the bad."
"There are phases of the sport
that are not good and should be
corrected," he declared. "Im
provements are being made and
-will continue to be made. All of
us interested in the sport must
work to that end."
Dr. Brehm's views on the sport
were contained in a letter he
wrote Bob Mathias, former Stan
ford University fullback who quit
football this season with a blast
that it had become "big business"
and had lost its appeal as a sport
for the men who play it.
The U-T president made public
today a letter he wrote Mathias
last Sept. 1.

Fight On Orientation
By Richard Creed
Bill Brown,, chairman of the
presidentially appointed commit

the committee's report to the stu
dent Legislature last night.
Student Party members Joel
Fleishman and Don Geiger, who
are both on the committee said
yesterday that they would not ac

"I thinfc that neither the commit

"Although this area of work has
not been explored very thorough
ly, I think this is a safe assump
tion to make."
The committee was set up over
two weeks after Student Party
Chairman Gene Cook had charged
Gorham with giving fraternities an
"allotment" of orientation coun
selors and with instituting a "re
gime that is of, by and for fra
ternities." Cook Stipulations
Cook and Gorham met and de
cided that Gorham should set up
the orientation study committee.
Cook made the stipulations that
equal numbers of each party be
appointed to the committee, that
his charges be answered satisfac
torily by the committee, and that
the committee's finding be open
to the press. Cook was assigned
to the committee and signed its
report yesterday, but was not
available for comment.
Gorham said yesterday that the
committee was set up to prevent
orientation from becoming a "po
litical football." Later he said that
it was not set up to answer Cook's
charges but "to study the orienta
tion set up and its current pro
gram." "The whole project resulted
from a sincere desire by the exec
utive office to take inventory of
its orientation committee and to
clear up various misunderstand
ings," said Gorham. "It was felt
that a thing as important and vital
to Student welfare as orientation
should not be dragged through

Brown said, "The committee was
not set up to answer Cook's charg

the orientation program and make
suggestions for any improvements
we found necessary. If Cook's
charges are answered at all it will
be done in the course of our work
