Michigan's coaches know and ap-

Coaches mentioned were head
football coach Bump Elliott, as-
sistant football coach Tony Ma-
son, former assistant coach Bob
Hollway and head basketball
coach Dave Strack.
John D. Dewey, Big Ten Assist-

told The Daily that he would


consider th'e discount practice a
violation of conference rules. "If
they (discounts) are given only to
athletes to the exclusion of other
students, then they are illegal."
Athletic Director H. O. (Fritzl
Crisler expressed surprise when
asked about the discounts yester-
day, adding "I will conduct an im-
mediate investigation and clamp
down on anything uncoveeed."
However, Crisler later admitted
to The Daily that he had distrib-
uted a memorandum on Wednes-
day advising all coaches that The
Daily was conducting an investi-
gation into the discouwt.s.
When asked about the discount
policy, Strack said, "I didn't re-
alize they were such a common
practice, but I knew of course
that they weren't an uncommon

practice. I've never thought about
their legality, and I am frankly
surprised that they are considered
illegal aid."
Hollway categorically denied

Elliott and Mason could not be

Crisler said he knew Hoag had
been giving tickets away, but had
understood they were limited to
certain Friday nights and had
not received widespread distribu-

had been well established even
before he came to Michigan 30
years ago as head football coach.
Hoag said he did not want to
jeopardize the standing of Mich-
igan in the conference. "If I'm
quoted, I would go to court and


deny the whole thing " he said.
A number of athletes inter-
viewed by The Daily admitted
they had taken advantage of the
tickets (referred to as 'Victory
Passes'). the discounts and the

Clyde Vroman plays the "num-
bers game" and that's why the
literarycollege has to cut back
admissions next fall.
Vroman is the director of the
University Admissions Office and
the "numbers game" he plays is
figuring out how many high
school seniors are going to apply
to the University, how many will
accept admission offers, and how
many will actually come to the
The literary college - currently
operating under the Leveque
plan for college growth - which
calls for over one-third increase in
enrollment in five years- admit-
ted slightly more than the Le-
veque quotas for the last three
years. The plan is named for Prof.
William Leveque, chairman of the
mathematics department; who de-
vised the schedule four years ago.
While not serious in any one year,
the cumulative affect of over ad-
mission has pushed the college
near the crisis point.

"The trouble really started with
this year's freshman class," Vro-
man explained. The admissions
office expected a downswing in
the constantly increasing number
of admissions. The slump didn't
"We thought we were in good
shape," Vroman said, "but when
we got the registrar's enrollment
report in November, we found out
we had gone 180 over the quota."
Shortly after this discovery the ad-
missions committee of the literary
college faculty decided that ad-
missions for next year would have
to be 180 under next year's Leve-
que quota to maintain a reason-
able over-all size.
Vroman explained that when
his office heard the decision they
scaled down their admissions pro-
cedure to keep the new enroll-
ments lower. Nonetheless, with
the fast pace of applications this
year, it still appears as though
they will be very close, if not over,
the 2970 fall freshmen quota.
When the executive committee

of the literary college met with
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Allan Smith and Vroman
last Saturday, they agreed to re-
duce total new enrollments next
fall by 180. The office, however,
was given a free hand to make
the cuts wherever they could --
such as in transfers or re-admits,

"U'-Too Affair: CIA Keeps Tabs on Students

SS 0
:0~~ lo

Last of Two Parts
When Congress set up the Central Intelligence Agency it spe-
cifically stated that the organization would have no "internal security
But that doesn't hinder the agency from keeping its finger on the
campus pulse. CIA agents regularly visit the campus to find out what
today's young people are thinking. Sometimes they even talk with
campus leaders.
One such visit came on an evening last fall when two neatly
dressed, niddle-aged CIĀ° agents stopped by to visit a member of the
University's Joint Judiciary Council.
The agents uolitely introduced themselves as "business associates"

The father suggested that the- CIA was particularly interested in
the organization of JCC as an instrument to block enforcement, of
University regulations, particularly the individuals behind that effort.
The student (whose narme is withheld upon personal request)
carefully explained that the meetings of JJC, Student Government
!council, and SDS were all ope'a and that anyone interested in what
the students were doing could attend their meetings.
When the CIA contact was made, the agents began their dis-
cussion with polite social tatk. Later they explained their purpose,
and one of the agents left.
The remaining agent pointed out that it was the "patriotic duty
of citizens" to help the government when requested.
Finally, the agent pulled out his CIA credentials. When this
didn't' promrt any more cooperation, he changed his tone.

The Housing Commission of-
fered the plan to Council in the
wake of -opposition to an earlier
proposal, which would have dis-
tributed 142 new units over only
seven ,sites.
Opponents charged this pre-
vious plan, which included three
sites of 39 units each, unneces-
sarily crowded low-income fam-
ilies and risked the formation of
"new ghettos."
The current proposal would al-
low no more than 24 units on any
one site.
"The Housing Commission's
newest proposal is more what
we've been shooting for," said
Councilman Brian Connelly. "It'
approaches the dispersal concept
we've wanted all along."
