NEW MOODS OF DISSENT
a Panel Discussion on the play
Hudson Psychs Out Foes
SUN., MARCH 17
Michigan Room of the League

A rising number of sports fans
are becoming involved in wrestling.
A number of rising wrestlers
are also involved with the sport.
Lou Hudson is one of them.
Undefeated in dual meet com-
petition and 14-3-1 overall, it
might be more apt to say that the
130-pound sophomore has blasted
off to a fantastic beginning.
"His style is a little on the un-
orthodox side," states Coach Cliff
Keen. Maybe that's what confused
Oklahoma's Dave McGuire, last
year's NCAA champion and the
Amateur Wrestling News' choice
as sophomore wrestler of 1967, in
the match which Hudson consid-
ers his best. Hudson took a 6-5 de-
cision and was the only Wolverine
to wrestle and win against the
Sooners this year.
Keen calls the McGuire match
Hudson's best, but also cites his
8-7 win over Indiana's Tim Mc-
Call, who was runner-up in the Big
Ten Championships last year.
Hudson then became ill, how-
ever, and missed several meets.
"Being out hurt him. I don't think
he's reached the peak he was at
before he was ill," Keen feels.
Still he just missed first place in
the Big Ten Tournament, losing
in the last round, 7-6, to the Buck-
eyes' Roger Young, a Big Ten
finalist the year before.
According to Keen, learning to
work more efficiently has been
Hudson's most important im-
provement. "Now he goes into a
match with a strategy in mind."
''Hudson has the knack of being
able to put out all he's got," con-
tinues Keen. "He's a great com-
petitor. Some wrestlers freeze up
when they get in competition.
Others are inspired to do better
than they've ever done in practice.
Hudson is the latter type."
Much behind-the-scenes prepa-
ration has gone into that record.

The atmosphere at the Regents meeting was tense yesterday
afternoon, as Vice President Allan Smith paused before announcing
the new director of athletics and physical education.
"After extensive research, I can assure you that the new dir-
ector is either from inside or outside the university community."
As Hudson relates in the southernI
accent he acquired just outside of
Chattanooga, Tenn., "In fourth
grade I started wrestling at the
YMCA. I was just a little guy-
only 70 pounds, so when the coach
there showed me wrestling I
thought I'd finally found a sport.
I couldn't play football against
all those big players without get-
ting hurt, but with wrestling I was
meeting someone my own size."
Before he finished high school,
Hudson had managed to work his
way into two other fields of sport,
pole vaulting and diving. A job

Canham's new post or director of athletics and phy sicai educa-
tion is more than the traditional administrative slot for engineering
success in intercollegiate sports competition.
Specifically, because of the reorganized athletic structure
approved by the Regents in January, the position is now the seat
of ultimate responsibility for STUDENT sports, intramural ac-
tivity, and recreation, as well as for intercollegiate competition.
The creation of an associate directorship for physical education

and the establishment of a new intramural advisory committee opens
the way for improving many existing inadequacies in student fa-
Under the old system, there was no method of allocating respon-
sibility for a leaky roof in the IM Building, a lack of recreational
parks and fields, and a badly-neglected "club sports" program.
As outgoing athletic director "Fritz" Crisler has stressea re-
peatedly, there have traditionally been few provisions for student
sports at the University.
"The problemsof club sports and intramurals have always
fallen 'between chairs,'" states Crisler. "There has been no way *
to determine where the responsibility lies."
But according to Crisler, the new structure provides adequate
machinery for cleaning up the despicable mess in student athletics.
This is where the question of the advisory committee's real
power enters the picture.
Since the Regents modified a Hayes Committee proposal to
divorce the advisory committee from the Athletic Board, Canham i
and his colleagues on the Board will have the power veto any
committee proposals, and thereby stifle realization of student in-
The standard arguments about lack of available funds, and
ineffective inter-departmental communication will no longer, how-
ever, be satisfactory.
The intramural committee will serve as a liasion between the
Board and the Office of Student Organizations.
In his new capacity, Canham will be officially informed of
student needs as they develop.
The questions naturally arise as to what kind of man is taking
on this job, and from where he will get the money for effective
President Fleming said in a press conference after yesterday's
meeting that Don Canham has evidenced sincere concern for stu-
dent sports, and solid determination for solving current problems.
One hopes that this is indicative. For it will apparently take a
man with deep conviction to elicit the necessary funds from reluctant
administrators, legislators, and alumni.
Canham has announced his intention to "fill up the football
stadium and events building" in order to secure money for the
athletic program. To do this, Michigan teams will have to win.
But student interests cannot be dependent on the success of
the intercollegiate athletic teams. That success has proved too
sporadic in the past.
In order to faithfully fulfill his responsibility to the student
body, Mr. Canham must confirm the priority of student interests
on the current agenda.
Football has its stadium; basketball has its coliseum. But the
LaCrosse Club, the Rugby Club, the Soccer Club, and many'others
don't even have a decent place to practice!
This inexcusable situation cannot be allowed to go on. Con-
tinued neglect of student interests cannot and will not be
