I-M Sports

Attract

Thousands

By DAN OKRENT
Maker of men, producer of
stars, and panacea for mental
fatigue, the Michigan Intramural
Sports Program is now four weeks
into its 53rd consecutive season,
23 of them under the leadership
of ,current director Earl Riskey.
The sole non-varsity, organized
sports program on the Michigan
campus, the I-M activities provide
thousands of undergraduates, grad
students, and faculty members
with a full diet of athletic com-
petition yearly. Covering the
whole spectrum of modern sport,
the program is divided into 36,
separate classifications, including
such varied activities as rifle
shooting, archery, horseshoes, and
cricket, along with the standard
football, basketball, and softball.
Five Divisions
Administration of the J-M 'pro-
gram is carried out in five basic
divisions, these being Residence
Hall, Soci.al Fraternity, Profes-
sional Fraternity, Faculty, and the
fastest-growing of the five, the

Independent division. Each func-
tioning in its own autonomous
sphere, the separate divisions pro-
duce their own team champion in
each of the 36 sports, along with
individual champions in single-
effort activities and all-star se-
lections in football, basketball, and,
softball.
The only qualifications for par-
ticipation in I-M's are being a
student at, or faculty member of,
Michigan, and, for varsity team
members; participation in an I-M
sport is restricted to the seasons
in which their varsity squad is
inactive.
Head Man
All I-M activities are directed
from an 8 by 12 cubicle occupied
by Riskey in the Sports Building,
constructed in 1928 coincidental'
with his arrival here on the I-M
taff. Elevated to his current post
at director in 1942, Riskey (who,'
incidentally, invented the rapidly
growing game of paddleball)
reigns supreme over a physical
empire that encompasses the

whole athletic complex east of the
stadium.
Proud of the accomplishments
of his program, he is eager to
point out some of the brightest
stars among its alumni. Foremost
among these, perhaps, is baseball
Hall-of-Famer George Sisler, who
was discovered playing I-M soft-
ball by then-baseball coach, later
major - league magnate Branch
Rickey, who quickly scooped Sis-
ler up for his own team.
I-Mers Make It Big
Another prominent I-M partici-
pant was William Clay Ford, who
played tennis as a student in the
40's. Today, the brother of Ford
Motor Co. Chairman Henry Ford
II is the owner of the Detroit
Lions Football Co.
Even though noted for their
prowess in varsity competition,
many other famed athletes have
made lasting marks in the annals
of the I-M program. Primary in
this group is three-time football
All-American Tom Harmon, who

won the department's all-around
athletic award (given each year
by the I-M staff to the participant
with the most noteworthy record
in the widest selection of sports)
as a freshman in 1937, but failed
to participate in I-M's as an up-
perclassman, in that his varied
varsity efforts kept him occupied
-as well as disqualified-during
the whole academic year.
As a matter of further interest,
Harmon's Social Fraternity record
in the 60-yard dash, set as a Phi
Delt in the spring of 1938, still
stands today.
Among prominent Social Fra-
ternity and Residence Hall all-
stars last year were five varsity
gridders on the all-star basket-
ball teams, consisting of Craig
Kirby, Steve Smith, Wally Gabler,
Clay Wilhite, and All-American
Bob Timberlake.
Growing Rapidly
Taking the back seat only to
the service academies in campus
interest (which is even a quali-
fied back seat, since participation
is required at - the military
schools), Michigan's I-M program
is growing yearly-to the point
where the facilities are being
taxed. With a just mixture ,of
pride and concern, Riskey points
points out that more lockers in
the Sports Building have been
rented this year than ever before,
so nmany that the possibility of
demand overtaking supply is im-
minent for the first time in the
37-year existence of the athletic
campus landmark.
Also, participation in the free
recreation programs at the build-
ing (men, 7-10 p.m., Monday
through Thursday, and 8 a.m.-
noon, Saturdays; co-educational,
7-10 p.m. Friday, all starting Oct.
4) is expected to reach an all-
time high.
All this points to the justifica-
tion for the basically men-only
program in I-M activities, that
there just isn't room for the girls.

THE UNITARIAN
UNIVERSITY STUDENT GROUP
will meet Friday at 7:00 P.M. at the Cinema Guild
to see "CITIZEN KANE." After the' movie the
group will convene at the side door facing the high
school and proceed from there for discussion and
refreshments.

GRID SELECTIONS
Last week's game were considered too easy to pick, so this week
we will give you something a little harder to work on. A helpful hint
on the Harvard-Holy Cross encounter. The Crimson is confident of
victory, so they will allow the Radcliffe girls to do battle for them.
The Crusaders also sense victory in the air. Just to give the fans at
Harvard Stadium something for their money, Holy Cross will pick up
the girls from Wellesley on their way to Cambridge. This game is a
tossup, as preseason repiorts from both Wellesley and Radcliffe in-
dicate both teams will field a strong front line.
Just come over to The Daily, 420 Maynard St., and force some-
one to lead you to the entry blanks. The deadline is midnight Friday,
only one day away. Winner receives two tickets to the Michigan
Theatre, currently showing "Darling."
