Director George Ehler of the ath
letic department, University of Wis
consin, is out with a vehement de
nial that Coach Junneau will be de
posed as mentor of the Badgers at
the close of the present campaign.
The story first appeared Monday in
a Chicago morning paper.
"The statement in the first place
was absolutely without the slightest
basis of truth," said Ehler. "Further
more, it was the meanest and lowest
type of "criticism that could be direct- j

coach at Wisconsin for the sole pur
pose of winning conference cham
pionships, and, when he fails, turn
upon him and cast him out coldly!

he directs, not by his ability alone to
turn out championship teams, as

idea was to give the players proper
physical training, and furnish com
jjetition that would breed friendly
rivalry between the universities.
Lately football has become a finan
cial consideration with too many in
stitutions. They go to great expense
to turn out winning teams, knowing
that a winner, in turn, will prove a
great moneymaker for the athletic
