Since the Tigers were invited
last Wednesday to the NIT in
New York, Maravich will have a
chance to set the all-time scoring
record for both small and major
college competitgrs. LSU could
play as many as four games in the
16-team tournament.
Michigan's Rudy Tomjanovich
dropped into tenth place but is
less than one point per game out
of sixth. Tomjanovich's average
fell below the 30 point level for
the first time this season as the
result of several below-par per-

231 124 586 29.3 found many supporters includ-

Sgirls ecaches teachers and
d'partment heads who think
t at the whole idea is "great."
THE SWIING team is a
prime example of girls who wish
to represent their school well
and an example of a coach who
knows her girls are of intercol-
legiate caliber and who would
like to allow them to meet with
comparable competiion.
Miss Sandi Hittleman, a
teaching fellow in the Physica l
Education Department, is t h a
first real coach the team has
had. She describes her team and
t h e basic predicament facing
all women's sports wishing to go
intercollegiate. "Compe t i t i v e
swimming can't be recreational.
You have to h a v e meets to
know just how good you are.
Our girls have done very well
in meets and in the Midwest-
ern we placed second to Michi-
gan State.
"The girls would like to go to
the nationals in Chicago b u t
there's no money. They should
go because they're so far under
the established minimum times
for placing in the nationals
that it's obvious they offer ex-
cellent competition."
So to get to the nationals the
team has sold candy and cokes
at the men's swim meets. As
Miss Hittleman states, "The
girls are working because they
really want to represent t h e
University. Yet they have had
to pay almost the total cost by
themselves. The fact that thoy
have to pay for away meets out
of their pocket has caused some
girls to dirop out and this has
caused us a problem with depth.
We have barely enough swim-
mers to cover all the events.
"The girls may. e a c h have
swum two events during o n e

mee but all of them are willing
to e n t e r another event if it
means earing soime points for
the cam. All the girls put their
whole effort into just making
poins for the team and winning
for their sch-ol."
hti and Cathy Mancino state
t 1 e poblem in these words;
dW don't receive any money
from anyone. Our allotment
from the Women's Athletic As-
sociation (which is n o w de-
funct) was used to pay for re-
freshaments after our first home
meet. We keep trying to think
of different ways to raise mon-
ey that all women's teams can
use. We can sell at the men's
meets but a team like basketball
can't because there's already a
concession deal at t h e men's
Their teammate, diver Lani
Loken sees the financial aspect
as the m a i n problem facing
probable intercollegiate wo-
men's teams. "In order to be-
come intercollegiate the teams
need soime sound financial basis.
We need some definite funding
source for our away meets and
uniforms. We're willing to do all.
we can but it would help if we
had some backing "from the
The men agree that women's
athletics should become inter-
collegiate but also see financ-
ing as the big problem. As Ath-
letic Director Don Canham put
it "I'm very much in favor of
women's intercollegiate athlet-
ics. It's a coining thing and will
be on a fairly large scale even-
tually. In fact, the NCAA has
a committee setsup studying it."
HE ALSO pointed out that
the girls' track team has used

athletic department facilities
for several years for their mee
and that the National Cham -
ionships in field hockey were
held on Palmer Field last fail.
He adds, however, "Money is,
of course, t h e main problem.
There are several club sports
which would like to become in-
tercollegiate but there just isn't
the money to let them. The on-
ly basis for a women's program~
to begin is with some plannc d
financing. It would probably
have to be based on admissions
or gate receipts. Girls basketball
draws very well in some stat=s
and with enough publicity it
could be on a similar le v e 1
LACK OF publicity and stu-
dent support are two obstacles
to women's athletics becoming
intercollegiate. As Miss Hittle-
man sees it, "There isn't enough
student support right now to
charge admissions to games and
meets. The Daily doesn't help
with o u r publicity either. If
someone did want to come they
wouldn't know about it because
we're never included in the
week's events and when we call
in our results they are either
not published or somehow come
out wrong."
There are two solutions to the
problem of financing women's
intercollegiate athletics. One is
to somehow reincarnate the now
defunct Women's Athletic As-
this was where club teams re-
this was where clum teams re-
ceived the money to travel to
away meets and to offset their
other expenses. All the member
clubs paid dues to the WAA and
each was assigned a specified
amount to cover their needs.
The other solution is to go

cumplev ly intercollegiate such k
as the women's team at Michi-
gai S<aic and Cemral Michigan
hae done At MSU each extra-
ural or inrcollegiate team
har a small amount they receive
omn lthe Women's Physical Ed-
ucaion DrpatmIent, T h i s
:aount allows for traveling ex-
'enses and for MSU to show up
at a swim meet like the Mid-
wsterns with a team of 17 girls
comlpared to the seven Michigan
had' as representatives.
mnen teamns are accorded the
sani privileges as their male
counterparts. The intercollegi-
ate teams get their money with-
in the framework of the Wo-
mens' Recreation Association.
The association funds come
from t h e School of Physical
Education and the dean of the
school appropriates the depart-
ient's funds as e a c h group
needs them. It is written into
the rules of the university that
the school will cover the total
expense of any intercollegiate
eam, as with the men, and this
also applies to the women.

Both of the above mentioned
solutions are not feasible for
Michigan unless there is a dras-
tice change in the rules of the
University. Both solutions pro-
pose using university funds for
support of intercollegiate ath-
letics and this isn't allowed at
In order for the women's ath-
letics at Michigan to become in-
tercollegiate they will have to
lobby for the Regents to change
t h e rules, or attract enough
support to bring sufficient gate
receipts or they can keep selling
candy for the privilege of repre-
senting the Yellow and Blue.

What often proves to be the
most unexciting events of track
are the field events. The only e-
ception is when the super-athiete
comes along, such as Bob Beaman,
who longjumped over 29' in the
1968 Olympics, two feet farter
than any man had ever jumped
before. Bob Seagren glamorized
the pole vault when he and team-1
mate Pat Wilson alternately broke
the world record weekend after

:weekend while at the University
of Southern California.
Outside of these few super-stars
in the field events, very little
ga mour or attention is focused on
the events which go on within the
Sperimeter of the track. But Michi-
gan's field event men, although
no super-stars may be among
them, do comprise one of the
toughest all-round fields of any
track team in the Big Ten. And
there even is the possibility that

*JACKSONVILLE - Wolverine football captain Jim Mandich
was featured on the 1969 Academic All-America football team an-
nounced yesterday.
The selections were announced by Ted Emery, chairman of the
College Office Sports Information Directors Association and a Gator
Bowl official.
All players on the Academic All-America had a "B" or better
average the past two semesters during their college career, and all
were regulars on their teams.
Mandich, a pre-law student, has been a regular on the Michigan
squad for three years.

!MILWAUKEE - Kevin Loughery of the Baltimore Bullets suf-
fered four fractured ribs in a National Basketball Association game
Wednesday night, but was reported in excellent condition yesterday.
Lutheran Hospital of Milwaukee said Loughery was still suffering
considerable pain, however, and would remain hospitalized until phy-
sicians feel he is strong enough to return to Baltimore. The doctors
said there were no complications.
Loughery was hurt in a collision with Milwaukee's Lew Alcindor
when the bucks' huge center went up for a stuff shot.
*UNITED NATIONS - The head of the U.N. Special Commit-
tee on Apartheid said yesterday that Arthur Ashe, the U.S. negro ten-
nis star, will appear before the committee soon.
Ashe was refused a visa by South Africa. Its government adheres
to an official policy of apartheid, or racial segregation.
Ambassador Abdulrahim Abby Farah of Somalia, head of the
U.N. committee, told reporters that Ashe will appear "in the near
future, probably to give an account of his own experience in the mat-

one or two of these athletes will

The strongest of the Michigan
field events is the pole vault.
Sophomore Larry Wolfe paces the
vaulters with a best of 16'1%",
a school record. Wolfe, who is now
recovering from a muscle injury,
stands as the favorite to win the
Big Ten title in this event.
Closely backing up Wolfe is
teammate Ron Shortt, a senior
from Farmington, who has vaulted
15'6" many times during his
career. If Shortt and Wolfe are in
top vaulting shape, they represent
the strongest 1-2 punch in the Big
Another event which shows depth
and promise for the future is the
shot put. Junior Giulio Cetello
leads Michigan's putters with a
best toss of 54'31/2", compared to
the indoor school record of 59'0"
shot put. Junior Giulio Catello
lo's best performance this season
was a first place in the Orange
Bowl on January 1 in a special
invitational track meet.
Backing up Catello are two
freshmen, Paul Toran and Brian
Block, both from Chicago. Toran
was State Champion of Illinois
last year with the 12-pound shot,
and so far this year has thrown
the 16-pounder 49'8". Meanwhile,
Block this past weekend tossed the
shot 50'512" at Wisconsin for a
third place in the dual meet there.
Thus, Michigan's shot put also
shows strength for the years
One event which is strong this
year but will be weak in the near
future is the triple jump. Seniors
Warren Bechard and Ira Russell
are both top competitors in this
event with bests of 48'8" and 48'1"
respectively. Bechard is the cur-
rent school record holder and was
Salsosecond in the Big Ten Meet
last year.
Russell, usually just a long-
jumper, was pressed into service
in the triple jump this year when
Bechard injured his heel, and he
has proved to be a valuable asset

so far. The only major competi-
tion which could prevent a 1-2
sweep in the Big Ten is Mike
Bond of Wisconsin, who has a
best of 49'1".
Although Bond has an edge at
the moment, Bechard is still re-
covering from his injury and Rus-
sell is also rapidly improving, so
the Big Ten Meet coming up soon
will be the setting for an inter-
esting duel.
In the long jump, Russell has
a best of 24'51/" and was third
in the NCAA meet as a sophomore.
Russell has the chance of break-
ing the school record of 24'10" if
he keeps on jumping over 24' as he
has been all season. Mark Rosen-
baum, a freshman from Highland
Park, Illinois has a best of 22'5"
in the long jump and provides a
promising back-up man to Russell.
Finally, in the field events, we
have the high jump. Although
Michigan has only one high
jumper, he is one of the best in
the Big Ten. John Mann has been
the most consistent competitor of
the Michigan track squad, jump-
ing 6'10" in every meet this season.
Tomorrow, the Michigan field
event unit will be able to flex their
muscles as Michigan opposes
Michigan State in a dual meet
