The grass always looks greener
on the other side of the fence," as
the saying goes-and as sayings
go, it's not bad.
So when Chris Murray, assistant
track coach at Iowa State, said
last fall that this year's Michigan
freshmen were "the best ever" and
could take the Big Ten crown in
three years, you had to figure he
was exaggerating a little. Murray,
a former Wolverine distance run-
ner himself, probably just wished



he could take a few of the squad
back to Ames with him.
But sometimes the grass really
is greener over there in the next
pasture, bad eyesight or no. And
it's beginning to look like Murray
may have been right after all.
Laurels Galore
The Wolverine frosh have rack-
ed up honors wherever they went
this spring, taking numerous firsts
and seconds in two meets at West-
ern Michigan and one in Ann Ar-
bor, often (in open-division com-
petition) against varsity and grad-

uate-level athletes.

Olson Leads Parade
The milers, for instance, are led
by Jim Olson, whose best time last
year was 4:06.5--good enough to
make him the nation's second best
prep miler, behind American rec-
ord holder Jim Ryun.
Olson, who moved from Bir-
mingham Seaholm High to Kirk-
wood, Mo., after his junior year,
will compete in tomorrow's mile
run in the Texas Relays at Austin.
The field for the race includes
Ryun, Big Eight champ Robin
Lingle of Missouri, and 11 other
of the country's best milers.
Tom Kearney, from Bloomfield
Hills, and Steve Bishop, from
Vicksburg, rate as two of the other
best milers. Kearney's best high
school time was 4:13. Bishop, who
will probably become a two-miler
here, is a former state Class B
champ with a best time of 4:15.
Steve Klotz of Cincinnati and
Taimos Leps, brother of former
Wolverine runner Ergas Leps,
have also looked very good in the
middle-distance events.

during Coupled with the relatively few
Dore graduation losses the team will

could easily spell a championship

The grass, in other words, should
be quite green.
SGC Endorses
Open Athletic
Board Sessions
Student Government Council,
in a unanimous decision last night,
urged the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics to open
that portion of its meetings which
"affect the students and public."
Bob McFarland, '68, newly-
elected student representative to
the board, spoke to SGC support-
ing and explaining the resolution
along with Chuck Vetzner, sports
editor of The Daily, who empha-
sized that this was only the first
McFarland pointed out the im-
portance of board decisions for the
student body, and noted incidents
in the past where students have
been kept in the dark about issues
affecting them.
Explaining that a significant
amount of student money is in-
volved with board policies, he
maintained that this was a rele-
vant area for SGC.
Vetzner said other things must
be done to make the board more
responsible to students, especially
in the area of intramurals.
Board meetings at the present
are closed to both the public and
the press.
The resolution was introduc-
ed by Mike, Dean, '67, and in its
final form stated that "Student
Government Council urges the
board to reconsider its policy of
holding exclusively closed meet-
ings and to open its sessions when
faced with matters that affect
the students and public."
Al Goodwin, '66, suggested that
SGC work closely with the two
student representatives to the
board and other students expert in
the matters to effect needed re-
