feel that the sub-committee emphasized the lesser considerations
at the expense, of the greater ones in their proposal, and some: find
the proposed site unacceptable. 'Concerned North Campus residents'
have begun on their own to look for other possible locations for the
building,, paying particular attention to- the Murfin Road Field.<
The sub-committee feels that it would be nice to have the facili-
ties adjacent to the Fuller Road Fields, as use of the fields would
encourage use of the buildings and vice-versa. They also feel that the
central location of the proposed site would allow it to serve not only
the North Campus but the hospital as well.:
THE ]FULLER RQAD site would be at least three-quarters of a
mile from current housing on North Campus and could be con-
veniently reached only by bus. Residents argue that if they had to take
a bus to the proposed building, they might just as well stay on for
a few extra minutes and go to the Central Campus facility. {
In light of the fact that the proposed site lies in the extreme
southwest corner of North Campus, it is hard to see how the board
can argue that it would be centrally located. Almost all present and{
proposed North 'Campus housing would lie just as close or closer to
the Murfin 'Road site.
The hospital has never been considered part of the North Campusj
simply because it is on the other side of the Huron River. Even if the
proposed North Campus IM building were to be ;placed on the Fuller
Road fields, the hospital would still be much closer to the Central
Campus site on Palmer Field.
ACCORDING TO University Planner Fred Mayer, "There are at
least three real alternate sites" for the North Campus facility. By7
far the most convenient location for it, as far as most of North ||||||||| .
Campus is concerned, would be on the land north of Bursley Hall be-
tween Murfin Road and the Bursley parking lot, including the Murfin Ron Rapper
Road fields. '
There is,. however, a strip of land between the Murfin Road
Field and the parking lot that the University has been unable to STOMP STATE:
acquire. Boark members are quick to point this out, noting that time t
which could jeopardize the project might be lost in acquiring these
lands. They also argue that the Murfin Road Fields must be saved'
because they are the only suitable area for sports such as football and
}softball near Bursley.

was Dick Swetman of Penn State,
who averaged 9.20 for the two
nights. Rapper's performances this
weekend were very consistent as
he got 9.35 on both nights.
Iowa took over the lead in the
first of the finals and never gave
it up. While they were only able to
manage a 26.40 in the floor ex-
ersize, Penn State had 26.00 and
Iowa State 26.20.
Then McCanless lead the Iowa
sidehorse to a half-point margin
in the event by getting a sensa-
tional 9.6. The rings provided the
Hawkeyes with some more cushion
as Hatch's 9.45 provided the impe-
tus for a 27.10 tally. At this point
Iowa lead with 80.40, while Penn

Iowa State trailed with 78.60.
