'U'To Build Intramural Fields on I.


Executive Sports Editor
The University yesterday au-
thorized construction of four
new intramural playing fields
on the North Campus land now
occupied by the Municipal Golf
It will be the first major ad-
dition of outdoor recreational
facilities since the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics purchased Wines Field
for $125,000 in 1966.
The development will provide
facilities for North Campus in-
tramural activity and in addi-
tion help alleviate space prob-
lems now facing club sports.
The new playing fields will
be located on a 10-acre tract
bounded by Fuller road on the
north, the Huron River on the
west, the New York Central
Railroad tracks on the South,
and the western edge of the
future Residential College site.

The site will include two
touch football fields with di-
mensions of 120x300 feet, and
two larger fields suitable for
lacrosse, soccer, and rugby,
with dimensions of 200x360
feet. The complex will include
a 100-car parking lot. Addi-
tional land is available nearby
for projected construction of a
service building, that could in-
cludeflocker, shower, and stor-
age facilities.
The plan for recreational de-
velopment of the tract origin-
ated in May, 1966 at a meeting
of the University's planning of-
fice. At that time it was feared
that Residential College con-
struction would infringe on
field play in the area. The plan-
end Fuller Parkway realign-
ment was also considered a pro-
hibiting factor.
"However, when the Residen-
tial College was deferred, the
project was revived, and the

Regents authorized the propo-
sal," Assistant University Plan-
ter Fred Mayer explained yes-
terday. "The majority of the
development is in that portion
of the area originally designated
for recreation," he said.
Four golf holes on the re-
mainder of the 29-acre area
originally designated for the
Residential College will be pre-
served. They will be available
by both Men's and Women's
Physical Education Depart-
The development is part of a
larger University effort to pro-
vide, additional intramural fa-
cilities for students, Mayer said.
He explained that the effort is
part of a three-phase program.
"There are a series of needs to
be met," he said. "First, there
should be housing-related re-
creational a r e a s. Secondly,
there should be provisions for
field sports. Thirdly, indoor fa-

cilities are an integral part of
the effort."
In response to the need for
housing-r e l a t e d recreational
areas, the Regents authorized
the construction of four multi-
purpose recreational pads on
North Campus. The pad con-
cept is to provide a hard-sur-
face outdoor court half the size
of the Sports Building gym-
nasium. The pads are adaptable
to various activities, including
basketball, tennis, handball,
and volleyball.
The first pad was constructed
adjacent to Baits Housing last
summer, and has received ex-
tensive use, even during winter
Providing space for outdoor
activities (the four new fields)
is part of the second phase of
the program. Two other fields
have been provided on North
Campus; one at the corner of
Murfin and Hubbard, north of

Bursley Hall where goalposts
were erected completing a full-
size football field this week.
The other is located between
Baits II and the Zeta Beta Tau
House, and is regarded chiefly
as an area for impromptu field
Two other plots currently are
earmarked as playing fields on
North Campus, although there
is no timetable for their devel-
opment. Both are land-fill
areas, one 10 acres and the
other 16 acres.
Mayer views these projects
optimistically. "We've tradi-
tionally had an outstanding
varsity complex here, but there
haven't been many facilities in
the way of recreation provided
with housing, for one reason or
another," he said.
The movement of undergrad-
uate students to North Campus
helped precipitate the move to

development includes two touch-football fields and two larger fields suitable for lacrosse, rugby,
soccer and a one hundred car parking lot.

Although participation in frater-

sidered an extracurricular activity,
it is often recognized as part of
the educational process, Kelley's
ruling explained.
"It would therefore appear that
the denial of an opportunity to
so participate could be a denial
of a portion of the educational ex-I
perience provided in an institution
of higher education," Kelley said.
Informal opinions do not carry
the weight which "numbered"
opinions that are officially pun-

asked Kelley to make the ru ig

lecture was technical in nature and mainly for the benefit of

deferment of graduate students
except for medical studies.
Only graduate students in medi-

eligible for II-S deferments. These
deferments will be granted yearly
and are dependent upon certifi-
cation of satisfactory status by
the student's college.
Students who entered graduate

one year deferment. Second year
graduate students may be deferred
for one year to earn a master's
degree or on a yearly basis to
earn a doctorate or professional
degree provided the total does not
exceed five years.
Any undergraduate who is
ordered to report for induction is
eligible to postpone his induction
until the end of the academic
year. In this case he would re-
ceive a I-S (C) deferment. This
type of deferment is granted only
once and is not available to gradu-
ate students with a II-S status.
Registrants deferred as students
