or the victorious 400 yard freestyle relay team as he helped to lead Michigan in its upset bid.

A crowd which had been cheer-
ing off-and-on all night then
erupted with cries of "Go Blue!"
They suddenly sensed the smell
of an upset in the making, and
started to go wild.
But the Indiana coach silenced
the cheers when he put Big Ten
champion Fred Southward in the
500 yard freestyle. Southward
quickly took the lead in the race
and then dropped to second place
as another Indiana, sophomore
Ulf Gustavsen captured first place.
Indiana swept the event and
mathematically eliminated Mich-
igan from victory.
After the meet, Councilman
said, "I didn't want to have to
use Southward. He has had a bad
shoulder, and his doctor told him
to take it easy. I needed him to
make sure we'd win."
Although the meet was overuat
this point for all practical pur-
poses, Michiganetankers in the
remaining two events didn't lose
their desire to swim to win.
Sophomore Bill Mahoney pro-
ceeded to knock off two Olym-
pians in the 200 yard breaststroke
in what had to be the big upset of
the night.
Michigan Coach Gus Stager
commented, "It's terrific what

swimming meet with Indiana. The Wolverine junior came out on top in the 100 yard freestyle,

swimmers in the Big Ten. However, his efforts were somewhat in vain as Michigan fell to the power-

New proposals set forth
in Wines Field skirmish

The lengthy controversy o v e r
the use of Wines Field appears
to be nearing its end.
At a meeting of the Advisory
Board on Club Sports, Intramurals
and Recreation held Wednesday
night in. the Student Activity
Building, proposals were discussed
which would resolve the dispute
between several sports clubs and
the marching band.
Don Canham, Michigan athle-
tic director and chairman of the
-committee, told the members a
sum of 150,000 dollars has b e e n
appropriated by the University to
resolve the problem.
The money was originally de-
signated to facilitate the moving
of th band from Wines Field to
some alternate site. The band has
been using a black top area on
Wines Field for its daily prac-
tices during the fall.
The 150,000 dollars would go
*specifically toward the purchase
of a new practice area and also
toward construction of a storage
building and lockerroom for the
band members.
An alternate proposal was pre-
sented which would call for the
construction of an addition to
*Yost Field House which would ac-
commodate club sports and also
indoor baseball and football prac-
This new addition would be
paid for by the Board in Con-

At this point, Michigan was
down 28-20, and the prospects for
victory were dim. Gary Kinkead
then took his second first of thej
night, by winning the 200 indi-
vidual medley. Charlie Hickcox,
Olympic gold medalist in the 200
meter I-M, did not enter the race.
Diver Jay Meaden suddenly
brightened Michigan's hopes as he
unexpectedly upset Olympic bronze
medalist Win Young in the three
meter event.
Meaden had an extremely high
score of 332.90 - only the second
time in his career over 300. Atj
first, it looked as though Young
was going to win, but is feet fell
over on the entry to his fourth
dive. Meaden quickly capitalized;
on his opponent's mistake as he
followed with a near perfect dive.

The Intramural Board is still

The Board discussed the install-

to postpone the action indefin-

new product was planned for the

perfections and discolorations of
