12 NOON

By PHIL BROWN
Special To The Daily
DETROIT - The pungent aro-
ma of liniment assaults your nose
and the constant drone of the an-
nouncer's voice being drowned
out by the pounding of spiked
shoes on the board track contrib-,
ute to the sensual barrage unique
to indoor track meets.
But the thrill of indoor track is
due more directly to the competi-
tiUon itself, and there was plenty
of that in the first day of action
Lanham -New
Athletic Head
(Continued from Page 1)
Crisler's reaction to the ap-
pointment was, "I imagine the
President and the Board of , Re-
gents had a difficult time in se-
lecting an athletic director from
the list of well-qualified candi-
dates. They certainly made no
mistake in selecting Don Can-
ham."
Fleming said that the Big Ten
Investigation of discounts to ath-
letics had not prejudiced his deci-
sion against the selection of El-
liott. In fact, he said, the question
was never brought up. The presi-
dent added, "I'm sure Mr. Can-
ham, will keep our conduct within
conference rules so the University
will not be suspect."
He also reported that Big Ten
Commissioner Bill Reed had not
released aniy report oi his current
investigations of Big Ten rules
violations, although citing Reed's
comments that the alleged viola-
tions were not serious.
Fleming refused to comment on
whether anyone besides Canham
had been offered the job.

at the National Collegiate Cham-
>ionships in Detroit's Cobo Arena.
There was at least one gasp-
worthy moment in each event
contested, but the highlight had
to be Jim Ryun's victory over
Gerry Lindgren in the two-mile
run.
Ryun, a surprise entry in this
gruelling event, dogged the frail-
looking Washington State star for
the first mile and a half, then
brought the crowd to its feet
with a kick that gave him a five-
yard margin at the tape.
Two World Marks
But this didn't exactly over-
shadow the pair of world records
set .during the day's activities.
Bob Beamon, a lanky sophomore
from Texas-El Paso, glided 27'
2 " to break his own global mark
of 27'1".
And Villanova's superb collec-
tion of middle-distance runners
contributed another world mark.
Larry James, another sophomore,
reeled off a 47-flat 440, best ever
for an 11-lap track.
A pair of Villanova runners
helped James run up the squad's
first-day team lead by sweeping
the first and second place in the
880-yard run.
Dave Patrick took the title as
expected, but only by outsprint-
ing teammate Frank Murphyin
the stretch.
Not Close Enough
Murphy finished a mere tenth
of a second behind Patrick, who
recorded a 1:52-clocking.
Michigan got, its first points of
the meet when Ira Russell soared
24'534" for third place good for
three points. Though far out of
reach of Beamon's winning leap,
Russell was edged by only four
inches for second.
The Wolverines' chances for get-
ting more points look very good as
both hurdler Larry Midlam and

sprint star George Hoey qualified
for today's final competition.
Hurdles and Dash
Midlam won his preliminary
heat of the 60-yard high hurdles,
while footballer Hoey finished
second in his qualifying round of
the 60-yard dash.
High jumper Gary Knickerbock
er also will get to work up a
sweat tonight as a result of his
6'8" jump.
But while yesterday was a big
day in the championship meet,
the best is yet to come. The real
glamour events -- the mile-run,
pole vault, and the 60-yard dash
finals--all remain for today.
Ryun will be seeking a second
meet crown when he goes against
Kent State's Sam Bair in the mile.

Sports Editor
The Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics last night
called for an "all-out effort" to
secure "satisfactory accommoda-
tions" for club sports, intramurals
and student recreation.
A resolution introduced by Ath-
letic Director H. O. (Fritz) Cris-
ler, pledged the Board's support
to making intercollegiate facilities
available to "qualified student or-
ganizations" whenever possible.
Facilities for student recreation
have been woefully inadequate in
the past, Crisler explained. "The
Board hopes that the recent re-
organization of University athletic
structure will provide solutions to
some of the problems."
It Says
The resolution reads as follows:
"The Board has a sympathetic
awareness of the needs of lacrosse,

the appropriate authorities to pro-
ceed in an all-out effort to com-
plete satisfactory accommodationsI
for next year.
"It is our understanding that the
advisory board provided for in the
new organizational structure re-
garding club sports, intramurals,
and recreation will be formed in
the relatively near future.
"After this group has had an
opportuity to formulate program
needs for next year, the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athle-
tics will be pleased to cooperate
by responding with indicated times
when intercollegiate facilities can
be used by qualified campus
groups. We anticipate that this
procedure will identify allocation
of facilities in which there is an
interest."
Also ...
In other action, the Board for-
mally approved the appointments
of assistant football coaches Rob-
ert Shaw and Frank Maloney. The
two will replace defensive experts
Y. C. McNease and Don James,
who resigned to take coaching
jobs at Idaho and Colorado re-
spectively.
Also, the Board made provisions
for future scheduling of football
games played in late November.
Because of conflicts with student
vacations and television practices,
games scheduled on the Saturday
following Thanksgiving Day will
be played on a different day.
The new practice is expected to
increase attendance at the games.
It will not go into effect, however,
until- 1979.
