"It's completely unacceptable
to have the band on Wines when
the IM program needs it so much,",
argued rugger John McKenzie.
"The noise makes football games
impossible, and Dr. Revelli, the
band director, insists that no one
use the adjacent fields when the
band is practicing."
But these are not the only rea-
sons which have caused so much
frustration and anger' on the oart
of the club leaders.
Mildner, appointed by the Re-
gents to one of four student posts;
on the newly-created Advisory
Committee on Intramural and
Recreational Activities, credited
the clandestine nature of the de-,
cision with creating the angry
"There was absolutely no com-
munication between the adminis-
tration and the people who would
be affected by the decision,"
charged Mildner,
"The Athletic Department is
mad because we got some infor-
mation wrong in the beginning,
but when you learn things through
rumor that's what you have to
Canham and other administra-
tors have suggested that the
problem be put to the new Ad-
visory Committee, which further
irritates the club leaders.
"If they had wanted the Com-
mittee to study the question they
could have waited until it had a
chance to meet," noted Gillon.
"There was no need to make
this decision so quickly, unless
they didn't want anyone to know
about it. The whole thing smells
of conspiracy - if we hadn't
heard about it the kids would
come back in the fall and it would
be done."
"It becomes a matter of prin-
ciple as much as a practical con-
sideration," added Student Gov-
ernment Council Vice President
Bob Neff.
The lone administration repre-
sentative present was Bob Cares'
of the Office of Student Services,
who voiced complete sympathy
with the students.
"I'm truly disappointed with
the way the administration has
acted on this issue," he said, "and

AAU dive


dumps 'M'
Special To The Daily
LINCOLN, Neb. - Michigan's
divers again failed to live up to
their expectations yesterday as
the national AAU swimming and
diving championships moved into
a third day of action.
Defending three-meter women's
champ Micki King dropped to
sixth with 418.9 points, 13 less
than new titlist Jerri Adair.
Sophomore hopeful Lani Loken
finished a strong eighth, however,
two places better than her 1967
finish. Miss Loken had a final
total of 408.
Jim Henry of Indiana took the
men's one-meter dive with 595 '
points, far ahead of Michigan's
Bruce McManaman in twelfth
place at 435.
Wolverine star Jay Meaden was
even farther back, finishing 17th
and failing to survive the first cut.,
"It was the greatest display of
diving talent that I've ever seen,"
observed Michigan gymnastics
coachi Newt Lokern, obviously dis-
appointed with the day's results.

pening," explained McKenzie.
"It became apparent that the
decision was pretty much final,
but we started to look for a way
to get it changed or, at the very
least, a delay.'
McKenzie and numerous other
representatives of the clubs called
repeatedly on Canham, Vice Pres-
ident for Academic Affairs Alan
Smith, and other officials involved
in the decision.
The students even talked to
members of the Board of Regents
when other attempts seemed to
be failing, but nothing got what
the leaders termed a "satisfactory

Part of the students' complaint
is that the paving removes a field
critical to the clubs' needs. The
Athletic Department claims, how-
ever, that the paving will fill an-

basketball courts, which are few

Opposition to the proposed pav-
ing centers around the desperate
shortage of playing fields that the
Intramural Department will face
this fall.
While new fields are also under
construction on Fuller Road near
North Campus, there appears an
excellent possibility that neither
site will be ready for use during
the fall term.
The compromising of intramur-
al needs for the band also strikes
the students as highly question-

Packers picked over college Stars


CHICAGO-The college All-
Stars of 1968 tackle the for-
midable Green Bay Packers of
the National Football League to-
night in Soldier Field, but despite
enthusiasm and high hopes they
enter the game as three touch-
down underdogs
Fair weather was promised. The
game, expected to draw around
60,000, will be telecast nationally
by ABC.starting at 9:30 EDT.
It will be Norm Van Brocklin's
first as coach of the collegians.
In the last two games the Pack-
ers scored shutouts: 38-0 and
27-0. Whether the All-Stars can
break into the scoring column, let
alone win, depends almost entirely
on their quarterbacks, Gary Be-
ban of UCLA and Greg Landry
of Massachusetts.
Van Brocklin, once a star NFL
quarterback himself and formerly
poach of the Minnesota Vikings,
let it be known he will call the
plays from the bench.
The Packers, led by Bart Starr,
now at the peak of his career,
come into the game with nearly
th'ree weeks of hard drills. By
contrast Van Brocklin has worked
the collegians lightly and concen-
trated instead on afternoon ses-
sions stressing psychology and,
Beban, t h2 Helman trophy
winner, led the West to at34-20
victory in the Coaches All-Amer-
ica game in Atlanta that kicked
off the football season in mid-
summer. His best receiver appears
to be Dennis Homan of Alabama.
To supplement his aerial game,
Coach Van Brocklin looks to two
big and fast backs Larry Csonka
of Syracuse and Lee White of
Weber State, both 240-pounders.
The Packers, probably among
the greatest teams ever put to-
gether in professional football,
will be playing their first game
for their new coach, Phil Bengt-
son. He moved into Vinve Lom-
bardi's post when Lombardi,
Packer general manager, retired
from coaching.
The attack of the professionals
is versatile. Starr is an accurate
passer and his receivers know

the University missed a chance to
do some pioneer work with blacks
in the spring of 1967.
"When Harve Schmidt, then as-
sistant basketball coach, took over
.t the University of Illinois, there
was an opening here. Bob King,
head coach, considered many ap-
plicants, including a Negro.
-"Though I would have probably
turned down the offer because
I was making more money in the
ABA, I'd have appreciated' con-
sideration," Harge said.
"The general consensus of the
University's athletic department
was that the time wasn't ripe for
the Negro to enter coaching,"
Harge said. "The school had a#
chance to pioneer but failed."
Harge was asked which he
would accept if offered both aA

school or a head coachiig job at

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - The Major League Baseball Players Association
accused the club owiers yesterday of stalling on the Pension Plan
and warned that the delay in bargaining is "ominous."
"It is a step toward creating a crisis by deliberately leaving in-
adequate time to negotiate mutually satisfactory solutions," Marvin
Miller, executive director of the association, said.
Miller said the players had asked. the club owners to ,begin talks
as soon as possible, and no later than mid-August, on the Players'
Benefit Fund, which comes up for renewal after the 1968 season.
The owners have stated that the matter. should be delayed until
late fall,
"The season will have ended, the players will have dispersed, the
problems will be complicated aby the 'desire to begin individual player
contract negotiations," Miller added.
The players are seeking a bigger bite of the $50 million television
and radio package which the clubs have signed with the National
Broadcasting Co. for 1969, 1970 and 1971.
The package includes the World Series, All-Star Game and the
games of the week.
The players association accused the owners of meeting secretly
with NBC and making the deal "oblivious to the interests and stated
position of the players."
The pension plan for players was begun in 1947 and during the
early years was financed by contributions from players and owners
plus television and radio receipts of the World Series and All-Star
game and, gate receipts of the All-Star game.
In 1962, the clubs negotiated a new contract and established
a new plan for the period 1962-1967. The owners retained;40 per cent
of the TV-radio income, plus all income from game-of-the-week
television. They also stopped club contributions to the pension fund
while retaining player contributions.

CHICAGO - Maybe the'e isn't
much for Forward Pass to shoot
at in his quest for the year's 3-
year-old honors, but the Calumet
star steps up his campaign against
five rivals in tomorrow's $100,000
American Derby.
The disputed Kentucky Derby
winner and outright Preakness
champion, making his first start
since finishing second to Stage
Door Johnny in the Belmont, is a
likely 4-5 odds-on choice in the
Arlington Park feature at 11/s
Forward Pass, top-weighted at
123 and ridden by Ismael Valen-
zuela, will have as rivals Poleax
120; Bold Favorite 116; No Double
116; Good Investment 114 and
Te Vega 114.1

His biggest threat may be W. R.
Hahn's Poleax, to be ridden by
controversial Bill Hartack, who
has been riding only in California.
Hartack, winner of three Ken-
tucky Derbies and four-time na-
tional riding champion, rode Pole-
ax in his last two winning starts,
including a triumph in the $127,-
000 Hollywood Derby.
The American Derby, which
hasn't had a Calumet winner since
Beau Prince in 1961, will gross
$115,000i f all six colts start. The
winner's share will be $70,600.
