THERE SEEM TO BE money problems everywhere one looks at the
University of Michigan. No department can afford anything new,
and most of them now can't aford half of the older things. Things
that have been taken for granted ,in the past are now on the cutting
list.
This has, often been a problem with the academic 'side of Michi-
gan, where the funds must come from the State Legislature. But it is
something new to the Michigan Athletic\pepartmeift-which always
thoughtit had a fool-proof method of getting adequate money.
Michigan's Athletic Department is a self-sustaining system. The
money It spends is all earned through gate-receipts at the various
athletic contests. The State Legislature doesn't have to be favorally'
impressed, nor do the Legislators have to be convinced that money
isn't being wasted and cuts can't be made. Perhaps this As just as good
-undoubtedly the StateLegislators would be entirely unfavorable -to
athletics if they can't see the point to education itself.
Sports Money Needed ...
BUT NOW the Athletic Depa'rtment is havingjust as much financial
trouble as anyone else. The building program for the athletic plant
is falling far behind the schedule that was tentatively set a few years.
ago; and even farther behind need.
Yost Field House is barely adequate for housing the new basket-
ball court (something-that was- bought only when the old one was
entirely out of the question). From the players' standpoint the place
is obnoxious, from the fans' almost ridiculous, and from the press' it
is impossible. The Coliseum, although not as dingy, is just as an-
tiquated.
Although these two buildings are the chief need (chief to the price.
of some millions fo dollars) there are many other smaller items on
the department program that are needed. One of these is a new I-M
Building (actually, another rather than a new one).
For' a comparison, look at Michigan .State. They have built many
new buildings within the past few years: an addition to the football sta-
dium, a new swimming pool, and the already present, more-than-
adequate field house. Of course, they need a new hockey rink, but
that is in the works.
Of course, the ironic thing is that Michigan State doesn't have a
separate fund for athletics. Theii money comes from the State Legis-
lature. Maybe Michigan is doing it all backwards.
*. 5 Fill the Stadium
HE EXPLANATION of Michigan's athletic money drought, of.
course, is very simple: a losing season in football. The only solu-
tion, given the present set-up: a winning season next year.
All it takes is a full Michigan Stadium every Saturday in the fall,
and all the buildings, all the special items, everything will become
available. But the Stadium hasn't been full every Saturday-or even
some Saturdays-for a few years. Thus the change in football coaches
was perhaps hurried, with the hope that the solution will be hurried.
Such pressure is a shame, but now that it has happened, let's hope
the results are quick--like the fall of 1959.
It is even true that the football team must be great in order for
the other teams to be great. At least where money means greatness.
Take, for example, this winter's gymnastics team. Coach Newt Loken's
squad finished second in the Big Ten, and by comparative dual-meet
scores they rank third in the nation. However, because of a Michigan
rule that says no gymnast who places lower than third in the Big Ten
events can go to the NCAA meet (because of the expense involved)
Michigan will not be represented by a full team, and can't conceivably
score high team honors.
Such is the PRICE of glory.

SEEKS CROWN-Michigan trampoline star Ed Cole, three times
winner of the Big Ten title, will be seeking the NCAA crown when
he represents the Wolverines at Berkeley this weekend.
Cole To Represent Michigan
At NCAA Gymnastics Meet

227 East Liberty,

NO 8-6606

By TOM'WITECKI
Taking a cue from Hor ace
Greeley's-famous saying "go West
young man" Michigan's star tram-
polinist Ed Cole will climb into his
bright red thunderbird sometime
today and head for California to
compete as the Wolverines lone
entrant in the NCAA gymnastics
meet.
The meet which will be held at
Berkley will offer a special chal-
lenge to Cole, a young man who]
has won just about every trampo-
line title in sight, since it is the
only major crown to consistently
evade his grasp.
For the last three seasons run-
ning, including this one, the hand-
some senior from Evanston, Ill.,
has won the Big Ten title (the first
person in history to do this), but
in the big national meet he has
lost two years running to the very
same- competitioi he beat to win
the Conference title.
Beat Jinx
But this year Cole said he thinks
he can beat the jinx and add the
title to the other honors he has'
accumulated in his four years at
Michigan.

Because of a shortage of funds
in the athletic department Cole is
the lone representative of a Mich-
igan gym team that posted a 9-1
season dual meet record and
finished second in the Big Ten
championships.
Chances 'are that if the entire
Michiganesquad was able to enter
it would have a good chance to
finish third in the California team
competition.
The only teams which can be
rated ahead of the Wolverines are
the co-defending champion Illini
who they defeated 58-54 in a dual
meet, but later lost to in the Con-
ference meet and Eastern power-
house Penn State, which whipped
the gymnasts 54%/-411 last Satur-
day to give the team its only dual
meet loss.
Vega Stars
The Nittany Lions were sparked
to Saturday's win by Armando
Vega's three firsts,asecond and
fourth. The Penn State star, who
is considered one of the United
States brightest hopes in the '60
Olympics, was just too much for
the younger, less-experienced Wol-
verines,
An interesting duel should de-
velop at' BepkIey this weekend
when Vega challenges defending
champion Abe Grossfeld of Illinois
for the National all around crown.
Vega did not compete against
Grossfeld last year. n
Vega and his teammates Jay
Werner and Lee Cunningham, are
also given a good chance to wrest
the team title from Grossfeld,
Tonroy, and other members of the
defending Illinois team.
