Recently this improvising has
involved the development and use
of a resorbant plastic, Insulite,

and stop the hardest pitch any
pitcher could throw."
But he was quick to add, "This

out two fiber glass goalie masks
which were just being made.
Not only does Hunt take care
of make-up and costumes, but
he is also responsible for keeping
the cast in first rate playing con-
dition. And when they do get
hurt. that too is his responsibil-
ity, and he holds the final au-
thority on whether a player is
able , Oreturn to the line-up.
"If there isn't a doctor around
then it's my decision. Otherwise
I consult with them, but the
player is my responsibility until
he goes to the hospital."
Discussing the relative serious-
ness of various injuries,' Hunt ex-
plained' that spectators are most
often aware of the problems con-
cerning knee injuries-since many
key players have had to sit out a
year because of a torn cartilage
or a pulled ligament.
"However, knee injuries are not
the most serious. Players who in-
jure their knees are brought to
experts and only their play is af-
fected. It's the head and spinal
cord injuries which are most
damaging and those are the ones
with which we are most con-.
But the Wolverines' trainingr
room is not a Hollywood studio
nor is it as well staffed. Mich-
igan. like the vast majority of
universities, has a severely under-
'imanned training staff.
Hunt noted this grim fact and
related that "we are very short-a
handed here due to a shortage of
funds. There seems to be an
amazing lack of awareness by the
adiinistrators. They simply do
not ask for more trainers."
But he admitted that the prob-
lem goes more deeply than a mere
amcmnistrative oversight. "Right
nw there is a serious lack of
ciaalified trainers. For one thing
nobuay trains them. The only
reai way to learn now is through
years of experience.
"But we are beginning to get
bete education for prospective
t ainers. In fact we are now teach-
ing classes at this University."
Hunt went on to speak briefly
about the conditions present in
t n professional leagues. "There
is a completely different atmos-
phere in training in the pros and
ac a university. Here we care
&juut the player as an individual
tnsL. There they place all the
einhasis on playing -ability.

jim Hunt, like his Hollywood
ccu Ft erparts, is a man behind

leadlines and he doesn't get the
glory of a first string halfback or
