Marquette Students Protest
DroppingFootball, Track

MILWAUKEE (P)-Marquette,
the nation's largest Catholic Uni-
versity, dropped football and track
yesterday in a staggering blow
to the role of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics in the academic program.
The action, leaving Marquette
with only one major sport, basket-
ball, touched off an angry protest
by some 3,000 book-carrying stu-
dents whodemptied classrooms
and marched on downtown Mil-
waukee chanting "We want foot-
ball-we want justice."
Faced with a recently-announc-
ed fund-raising drive for $30 mil-
lion in a 10-year academic ex-
pansion program, the Marquette
powers decided the loss of some

the Athletic Board voted the ac-

announced yesterday a sharp cur-

and will try to cancel its 1961
intersectional slate, which in-
eludes Cincinnati, a team that al-
so was scheduled to play Mar-
quette next year, as was COP.
Cincinnati thus was hit hardest
by the decision of the two schools.

Annual Swim Gala Featured As Top Event

Michigan schedule, and this
year's contest should be no ex-
ception, Michigan Coach Gus Sta-
ger has commented.
Not only will Michigan's var-
sity swimmers and divers be com-
peting, but former stars, like
NCAA champ Dick Hanley, and
some of the members from the
current freshmen crop as well.
In addition to this list, the fans
will see some of the top swimmers
from Canada and Swim Clubs
around the midwest. They will
compete in the open events, while:
Michigan residents will be eligible
only in the Michigan Amateur
Athletic Association contests. Each
of the two categories has 10 races
Many of the top divers compet-
ing will also perform some of the
famous comedy routines that have
been a part of the Gala through-
out its history. ,From past experi-
ence, Stager and his crew feel
that this diving display alone is
worth the price of admission.
Some big swimming names that-
should attract the spectators in-
clude alumni Carl Woolley and
ex-captain Tony Tashnick, be-
sides Hanley.
When one combines comedy, top
swimmers and divers, and close,
exciting races, along with the
usual surprises, he has all the
elements of Michigan's Annual
Swim Gala, beginning at 10:30
this morning.
