Indiana Tankers open up big lea

The Intramural Advisory Board'
will' continue to meet with stu-
dents active in athletic organiza-
tions this week to discuss the pro-
posal for two new Intramural
Buildings. They hope to involve
students as iuch as possible in
formulating plans for the facili-
ties and they would like to talk to
as many students as possible be-
fore the end of the term.
There is literally no time to
waste. According to Intramural
Director Rod Grambeau, every
year lost on the project will de-
crease the total area of each
building ten percent. Thus, it is
not surprising that the board feels
it extremely important that they!
'clear the plans with the students
before May so they can bring it
up before the Regents.
Although time is of the utmost
importance, board members a n d
students must remember t h a t
there are other important c o n -
siderations that cannot be passed
over lightly.
Student's opinions will have a
great deal to do with both t h e
final size of the buildings and
types of facilities that are to be in
them. A ten dollar per term fee
would finance two buildings of
88,000 square feet each and a fif-
teen dollar fee would increase the
floor space to 132,000 square feet.
The board is also interested in
leariing what facilities students
would like to see in the buildings.
The assessing of fees to finance
the buildings may cause some
controversy, but there is no other
way to finance the buildings that
will allow constructionto start in
the near future. Some students
might find a ten to fifteen dol-
lar fee excessive, while others
might prefer that the student pay
a small fee each time he uses the
building. Some students might
even oppose the proposal entire-
Although student fees may be
objectionable, there is no other
way to raise the money. If funds
were to be taken from the general
fund, the proposal would have
such a low priority that it could
conceivably wait for years. State
and federal aid is not available
for non-classroom construction,
and a donor who is willing to give
a large gift has not appeared yet.
Though some students may ob-
ject to paying for a facility they
may never use, Intramural Direc-
tor Grambeau says there is simply
no other way.
Some students may advocate
charging a small fee each time
the facilities are used. T h e s e
students are forgetting that t h e
% proposed facilities would benefit
the whole student body. It may be
argued" that the IM facilities
i would benefit some students more
than others, and that these stu-
dents should pay more for t h i s
privilege. However, there is no fa-
cility at the University from
e which all students do or can bene-
fit equally.
Anyone who has ever been in-
side the present IM Building at
Hoover and State can't help but
realize how inadequate the 40-
year old, leaking, over-crowded
structure is. Michigan's student
body has more than tripled in size
since the slumlord's paradise was
completed. Since then, Michigan
has fallen far behind other B i g
Ten Schools in terms of IM fa-
Michigan State's IM facilities
make Michigan's look insulting
even to a pig. There are large,
open fields (not for cows) by al-
most every dorm on' campus.
There are two huge, well-lit fields
for intramural football, softball
and soccer. The fields are well-
watered and have grass, too.
There are at least five pools on
the campus, the most popular be-
ing the 50-meter Olympic s i z e
outdoor pool by the Men's Intra-
mural Building. The Men's IM at
State was financed with student
fees, and it has marvelous facili-

ties, including an indoor track.
However, not even the abundant
facilities at State could hold a
candle to the facilities proposed.

Grambeau emphatically asserts
by the Intramural Advisory Board.
that the proposed facilities "w iIl
make Michigan the equal of any-
one in the country."
There should be little disagree-
ment about locating the Central
Campus site on Palmer Field be-
tween the Margaret Bell Pool and
the skywalk. However, at a Thurs-
day night meeting with the board,
representatives of the various
North Campus housing units voic-
ed strong objections to the pro-
posed Fuller Road site for t h e
North Campus structure.
The majority of the representa-
tives felt that the Fuller Road site
was too far from the housing units
on North Campus. They argued
that if they had to get on a bus to
go to the IM building, they might
just as well ride a few extra min-'
utes and go to the Central
Campus facility.
Three sites, the Murfin R o a d
field, the woodlot between Hay-
ward and Hubbard, and the open
area north of the North Campus
Commons were offered by the re-
presentatives as being more con-
veniently located, but there a r e
problems involved with all three.
The Murfin Road playfield is
the only area near Bursley and
Baits suitable for sports such as
baseball and football, and they
would be too small for the build-
ing as it now is proposed. The
otheF two alternative sites are
both on the central part of the
North Campus, an area reserved
in projected planning for educa-
tional facilities. The engineering
schlool currently has top priority
to the lands north of the C o m-
mons, and they may also have
first shot at the woodlot.
The board is looking into these
areas and hopes to work out a
plan acceptable to all parties.
Some of the North, Campus re-
presentatives have said they will
boycott the facilities if it is de-
cided to put them on Fuller Road,
but they should be aware of what
they are risking. If no agreement
can be reached, plans for the
North Campus site could be shelv-
ed. If this happens, it is possible
that the Fuller Road site could be
lost and any future IM Building
)n North Campus would be in an
even more inconvenient location.
If it turns out that none of the
sites offered as alternatives by
the representatives can be obtain-
ed, it is in the best interest of all
North Campus groups to support
the Fuller Road site.
It is, however, in the best inter-
nsts of the Intramural Advisory
Board and the North Campus
groups to try to obtain a more
centrally located site. A more
conveniently placed facility would
be much more beneficial to the
University community than some-
thing like a building for the En-
gineering School, which can eas-
ily be located somewhere else.
The almost total lack of areas
suitable to recreation near North
Campus housing is inexcusably
bad planning. Future housing de-
velopments in this area s h o u 1d
include. provisions to insure ade-
quate facilities for sports a n d

The proposed facilities could in-
itiate a new era in Intramurals
and Club Sports at Michigan. Stu-
dents must let their voices be
heard. If the proposal dies or if
the facilities turn out too unsatis-

factory, the students will have
only themselves to blame. He who
hesitates is lost, for time marches

Celtic bench upsets 76ers

By The Associated Press
BOSTON - The Boston Celtics,
stung by the early ejection of
Sam Jones and foul trouble to
player-coach Bill Russell, stag-]
ed a fantastic second-half explos-1
ion last night to bury the Phil-
adelphia 76ers 134-103 and take ai
commanding 2-0 lead in their Na-
tional Basketball Association
first-round playoff series.
Larry Siegfried and Emmette
Bryant, both pressed into extra
duty when Jones was thrown out
iod, completely outplayed t h e
.or, completely outplayed the
vaunted Philadelphia back court.
Siegfried finished with 20 points
13 of them in the third period
when the Celtics broke the game
open. Bryant got 15 points and
broke up numerous plays in a
great-all-around effort.
The best-of-7 series will re-
sume Sunday in Philadelphia.
Tom Sanders also was great in
relief, coming off the bench when
Russell picked up his fourth foul
in the second period. The veteran
forward hit five straight points,
boosting the Celtics into a 55-54
halftime lead, and wound up with

18 in helping to lead the 70-point'
second half.
Bailey Howell led the scoring
with 29 points, John Havlicek
had 24 and Don Nelson 21 to send
the Celtics with the lead back to
Philadelphia for the third game
in the best-of-7 Eastern Division
Chet Walker topped Philadel-
phia with 26 points. Billy Cun-
ningham contributed 18.
The 76ers took a 29-27 lead in
the first period enlivened when
Jones and Boston publicist Howie
McHugh were thrown out by of-

ficials for arguing and General
Manager 'Red Auerbach was chas-
ed back to the stands when he
came on the court. McHugh w a s
removed from his seat at the
courtside press table.
Walker's three-point play and
baskets by Darrell Imhoff and
Matt Kuokas opened the lead to
38-27 early in the second period.
But Siegfried, Nel and Havlicek
triggered a 15-40 Boston surge
which put the Celtics in front for
the first time, 42-40 halfway
through the period.
