Tickets Cut
Fift Cents
By JOEL BLOCK
Student ticket prices for bas-
ketball, hockey and swimming'
were cut in half by the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athlet-
ics in a meeting held last Friday
night.
Athletic Director H. 0. (Fritz)
Crisler told The Daily yesterday
that students and staff members
could buy season tickets for bas-
ketball for 50 cents a game or in-
dividual game tickets at the usual
one dollar price.
Hockey. and swimming tickets
will be sold for 50 cents apiece
on a game-by-game basis.
Crisler gave the board's reasons
for the price cut. "We want the
students to have the full advan-
tage of the new University Events
Building. We plan to have the
building ready for this year's bas-
ketball season which means there
will be 7,000 more basketball seats
than last year."
Reserved Seats
All 14,000 theatre seats in the
arena will be sold on a reserve
basis for both season and in-
dividual tickets. The board has
not developed specific plans on
how to distribute the reserve tick-
ets or whether or not they will
be given out on a priority basis
as is done in football.
Another ,reason for the ticket
price cuts is this year's raise kn
tuition. "The board feels that the
increase in student fees was just
another monkey on the student's
back," said Crisler.
"We are ;going to try to re-
lieve some of the financial burden
on students with price cuts in
hockey and swimming in addi-
tion to the one in basketball tick-
ets."
The general public will pay $24
for a season ticket covering the
12-game home basketball schedule
and two dollars for individual
game tickets.
General admission for hockey
games and swimming meets will
be $1.50 and reserved hockey tick-
ets will sell for
Cuts May Not Come
There is a possibility that the
price cuts may not come about
for another year. The recent wave
of strikes against the University
has brought work on the new
Events Building to a standstill.
"This latest strike has thrown
our timetable all off," Crisler stat-
ed. "The picket lines have prevent-
ed any of the tradesmen from
working on the structure. Even if
the pickets leave tomorrow, the
contractor will have a hard time
in getting all the workers back on
the job."
Without the Events Building,
there will be no season tickets,
and without season tickets, there
will be no price cuts. In Crisler's
words, "We can't possibly handle
all the students on a season ticket
basis in Yost Field House."

l'Hih Hopes'
By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Mickey Lolich says
it's a whole new world to be fight-
ing in the tightest American
League pennant race ever, but he
likes it.
The Detroit Tiger pitcher, now
10-12 after a horrible 16-game
losing streak, has won five straight
and thinks the Tigers have as
good a chance as anyone, despite
being 1%/2 games out yesterday.
"We're still within striking dis-
tance," he pointed out.
"Sure, the team feels the pres-
sure, but it's made a better club
out of the guys. The play has im-
proved. We're making better de-
fensive plays. The pitchers are
throwing more carefully. Petty
differnces are ?????," the chubby
left-hander said.
Lolich was 5-2 when he hit a
sour spell and ran his record to
But during the losing streak,
I was pitching pretty good base-
ball," he said. "I was throwing in
tough luck. We were shut out
three times and got only 18 runs
in those 10 games.
"I'm not throwing any different-
ly now, we're just getting runs."
With five straight victories
under his belt, Lolich said, "My
confidence has gotten built up.1
Having confidence makes me a
better pitcher, It's hard to de-
scribe, but I'm pitching better
without throwing any differ-
ently."
The likeable 27-year-old Lolich
will' pitch against the Baltimore
Orioles here tomorrow in a game
transferred from Baltimore. i
