r PARKING FUELS CONFLICT:
Athletic dept., club sports in
dispute over Wines Field use

-A sociated Press
ERNIE POWELL receives a well-deserved embrace after his 15
foot Jump shot with six seconds remaining in the game gave South-
ern California a 46-44 victory over top-ranked UCLA last Saturday
night. The defeat in their last regular season encounter ended
the Bruins' 41 game winning streak. The Trojans also took their
archrivals to double overtime on Friday before dropping a 61-55
decision.

Daily Sports Analysis -parking on a paved surface of the

The use of Wines Field as a
parking area during this past:
weekend's hockey games stirred
the continuing controversy be-
tween the Michigan Sports Club
Association and the athletic de-
partment concerning the facilities
for intramural and club sports
activities.

The controversy, which has al-
ternately submerged and surfaced
over the years like a giant whale,
now seems firmly mired in a ser-

legations.I

sports President Bob Gillon charg-
ed that athletic 'department per-
spnnel directed approximately
thirty cars, at one dollar per ve-
hicle, to park on a grass playing

field.v
"Wines was meant to be used
for intramural and club sports
activities, and not parking," Gillon
'commented.
"Besides, the field was already in
very bad condition and driving
'and parking cars on it only makes
the playing condition worse" he
added.
Athletic Director Don Canham,
however, has a different opinion
of the effect of the parked cars on
the field.
"The cars were parked on the
grass," Canham stated, "but they
were not on the actual playing
area,"
If the concern over the use of.
an athletic field as a parking lot
was the only concern involved in
the dispute, reconciliation would
be difficult enough, with the main

question being who should receive
the proceeds from the parking-
club sports and iiitramurals, for
whom the field was designed; or
the athletic department, who has ,
had the responsibility for main-
tenance of the field.
But, as Gillon said, in the one
statement on which both parties
seem to agree, "The parking issue
is only one part of a larger pic-
ture."
The larger picture is a collage
of intertwining questions concern-
ing prioritips, playing conditions,
and pragmatism.
According to Gillon, the rugby,
'lacrosse, and intramural teams de-
serve a "decent field" to play and
practice on this spring. Since, in
his estimation, Wines is "com-
pletely inadequate and unplay-
able," these teams should be grant- -
ed the right to hold' their scrim-
mages on one of the football prac-
tice fields.
Canham, however, also took is-
sue with these positions. E
"In the first place," he explain- 'iaitimore

going to be fired after next season.
So Joe is going to beat them to

Canham also explained that
football has a definite priority over
non-varsity sports at Michigan,
and that the football team would
get the use of the best fields,
equipment, and funds.
And so the charges and counter-
charges continue to fly between
the club sports members and ath-
letic department officials, with
lack of understanding being the
overriding factor on an oft-crossed
battlefield.
