ment hovering on the verge of trouble. The potential size of this
quantity of money if it were legal to use it for athletic program sub-
sidies, is unknown.
What can we make of this? There appears to be one idealistic
solution to the problem that has never been mentioned.
Why not place the athletic scholarship situation entirely into
the hands of merchants, alumni and anyone truly concerned with
Michigan having a top-notch intercollegiate athletic record? It
seems that these people, after all, comprise the group who put on
the most pressure for the Wolverines to win, win, win. So why
can't they be held responsible, financially responsible?
The first step is to take the $400,000 used for athletic tenders
in a year (which comes out of athletic program receipts), and funnel
it all off into balancing the athletic department budget, or financing
the intramural program, or creating an endowed chair in a department,
or some other worthwhile expenditure.
Then place the burden of coming up with the $400,000 annually
on our group of merchants and alumni. If they are successful, the
Wolverines will continue to represent Michigan on an equal footing
with the rest of the Big Ten. If not enough people care to the tune
of $400,000, the program will suffer.
- However, indications are that digging up a piddling $400,000 a
year to give to the athletic department will be no problem at all.
Objectors might point to the fact that the alumni did a horrible job
of helping to finance the University Events Building. But financing
a representative football team? That's another story. There seems to
be nothing that has the impact on alumni,of a winning football squad.
There is nothing that makes people take more pride in their good
old alma mater.
Is there a question that Michigan alumni have this money
available to give in support of their team? University 'alumni have
shown that they can back up their school with a supply of money
totally beyond comparison with any other public university in the
country. These are the exact same people who just easily exceeded
an unprecedented $55 million goal to insure that Michigan re-
mains among the nation's top universities.
What is $400,000 to this group? It seems to be very little.
Meanwhile, those people wh~ are willing through their own
generous discounts to allow athletes to risk their eligibility can drain
off these funds which are obviously excess to themselves and use
them. to help the athletes legally. Even Ann Arbor merchants can have
a better justifciation for charging their ridiculous prices. Sponsoring
an athlete can be a healthy sign instead of sounding as illicit as an
underground railroad.
What if the alumni figure that they will only support scholarships
for football and basketball, and let the other sports suffer? The answer
is simple. Give football and basketball the lowest priority for the
scholarship money, insuring that the program most important to
the alumni will suffer first if they can't completely fulfill the goal.
And if there Is an excess of donations, there will be no prob-
lem. Anyone can think of at least a million places to spend excess
University money.
What if the alumni and local merchants just don't care enough
to support the athletic program to the degree asked, after supporting
other University projects with so much greater an amount?
Well, if these people don't really care if Michigan wins, no-
body else does either.

Q.WHAT IS CONSIDERED THE BEST
COLOR IN A DIAMOND?
-A.Crystal-clear absence of any color in the body
of a diamond is considered the finest quality. This

is interior color, not the flashes of rainbow colors
called "fire," Value falls as a tinge of yellow deepens
the diamond in body color. Members of the
American Gem Society use a number of scientific 1
methods to determine the degree of yellow in each
stone in order to set a proper value and quality
grade. Come in soon and let us explain other perti-
nent points used by professional jewelers in deter-
mining diamond value.
