Co-recreational team sports also
can be organized upon request,
with teams set up in softball,
volleyball and basketball.
Controlling one of the top in-
tramural sports facilities in the
country .is a big job. I-M director
Earl Riskey and his assistant, Rod
Gambeau, provide in all a total of
34 team and individual sports.
Football Leads in Fal
Touch football heads the list of
fall sports, with teams from all
leagues engaging in the program.
Enabling more men to engage in
the gride games, "A" and "B"
teams play in separate leagues in
residence hall and social fraternity
divisions.
Endurance and a desire to see
the Ann Arbor countryside are the
only prerequisites for the cross
country meet, while a'less exhaust-
ing game is provided with volley-
ball. Outdoor track winds up the
open-air group of contests with a
large segment of the men moving
inside for the dual swimming
meets, bowling and westling, also
on an all-campus and league basis.
With the open-air segments of
Ann Arbor subjected to the whims
of a very changeable weatherman,
the expanses of the sports building
are opened to- a range of sports.
Basketball occupies the spotlight
for both "A" and "B" teams.
Indoors, It's Paddleball
Riskey's own patented invention
of paddleball controls the indoor
courts, with handball running a
close second along with facilities
to practice tennis during th' colder
months. Michigan's Varsity' Exhi-
bition pool, 1958 host for the NCAA
swimming championship, is the
scene of the social fraternity, resi-;

dence hall and pro fraternity
swimming meets as well as the all-
campus battles.
Table tennis provides a relaxing
way to gain valuable I-M points,
while the skill of would-be basket-
ball stars is tested in an all-cam-
pus and league free throw contests.
Yost Field House, where so many
championship . Michigan track
teams were born, is opened during
the winter for the all-campus and
leagut finals in indoor track.
- When the city's unpredictable
weatherman treats the campus to
the first vestiges of spring I-M offi-
cials crank up their outdoor engine
for the final surge of spring sports.
Softball holds a large segment of
the limelight, with teams from all
leagues occupying Ferry Field and
Wines Field. "A" teams play with
the regulation 12" ball while "B"
squads toss around the difficult
16" sphere.
Horseshoes, Golf Enjoyed
Horseshoes test the mstronger
pitching, arms, and an all-campus
as well as league golf tournarient
on the University course gives
potential Ben Hogans a chance to
reveal themselves.
Closing out the sports calendar
is tennis, which occupies the I-M
courts before students plunge into
final exams.
Adding color to the sports pro-
grams, are the selections of all-
star- teams in touch football,
basketball and baseball by the I-M
officials. Teams selected represent
the residence halls, professional
and social fraternities, and inde-
pendent players.

Faculty Has Program
Aiding the faculty in out-of-
class recreation; Michigan's I-M
sports department organizes a 15-
sport program based upon depart-
mental divisions, with the trophy
going to the all-sport champion.
Sidelight to the faculty play is
the studeit-faculty competition,
which is organized during the year
for various team and individual
sports. Student teams may also-
challenge fapulty groups to con-
tests by making arrangements
through the I-M department.
Michigan's newest expansion,
North Campus, was introduced to
the I-M program in 1956 and now
boasts a league for the distant
dwellers. New sports are added to

increases.
I-M Goes Co-Rec
Male domination of the Uni-
versity's I-M building ceases on
Friday night, however, when from
7:30 to 10 p.m. a co-recreational
program is run. Admitted to the
swimming pool, the participants
can also use the large I-M gym for
basketball, volleyball and badmin-
ton, while the exercise room's
trampoline is available with expert
supervision provided.
