Original Headline: Football and Baseball Coach of University of California has Tendered Resignation
San Francisco, Nov 11 - James Garfield Schaeffer, familiarly known as "Jimmie" Schaeffer, for seven years football and baseball coach of the University of California, has tendered his resignation to the executive committee of the Associated Students of the university. It was accepted at a meeting of the committee.
Schaeffer asked that the resignation take effect immediately, but in its acceptance the committee stipulated that he serve until the end of the present season.
Schaeffer will accompany the football team to Seattle today, where the team will play a return game with the University of Washington, which defeated California on the Berkeley field last Saturday by the score of 72 to 0.
It is emphatically denied by the members of the executive committee that Schaeffer's resignation was forced in any way; but dissatisfaction with his services has been rumored about the campus since the poor showing of the California team last Saturday.
