Game time is 1:30 and the place1
is Huff Gymnasium (emphasis on'

nationally with a 7-1 record, while
the Wolverines are unranked with

Aside from big 6'8" Bill Burwell,
the Wolverines will have a slight
height advantage. Dave Downey,;
6'4", and John Love, 6'3", are the
two Illini forwards.
Burwell is the leading scorer so
far this year with a 19.6 aver-
age. Burwell was often criticized
last year for being a trifle lazy
on the court. "Our scout says that
Burwell is working harder this
year," said Michigan Coach Dave
Downey Is closely behind Bur-
well with an 18.7 average, but re-

Key to Balance
Bill Small and Jerry Colangelo,
the two guards, are also averag-
ing in double figures and give the
Illini good team balance. "Downey,
Small and Colangelo are shooting
very well this year," Strack said.

Illinois hopes to be a contend-

Next week-the Bucks.

People have told me that Michigan's athletic program is unique.
In some ways they're right.I
For example, how many state-supported schools, especially onesf
as large as our fair institution, have athletic departments which arel
entirely self-supporting, not relying on the whims of the state's Leg-f
The I-M program here is unique also, in that it is one of the
largest and best in the country. This is borne out by the fact that
aver 250 teams are entered in this year's basketball competition alone.t
Although little is said or written about it, a program also exists
for members of the faculty and it, more-so even than the regular1
I-M program, stands alone as far as participation and comprehensive- c
ness is concerned.
I-M competition at Michigan has been traced back as far as the<
1861-62 academic year, making this year its centennial, but the fac-
ulty program didn't get its start until 1948, when 19 departments and
schools entered into direct competition for the first time.+
However, it has grown in leaps and bounds since then, with 70,
teams having entered competition at one time or another in the last
13 years. Last year 37 groups were entered, including six competing
officially for the first time.
A look at the record gives an indication of the breadth of the
program. Faculty members competed against each other in 12 dif-
ferent sports in 1960-61, with competition in a few held more than
once. In all, 17 different champions were crowned, including the an-
nual Faculty-student competition, which the faculty won with ease,1
27-8, their eighth victory (against one loss) since that activity's in-1
ception in 1952-53.1
Contrary to popular belief in some corners, the faculty competi-
tion isn't limited to full professors who have nothing to do between
lectures and research projects. Teaching fellows, and even staff re-
search assistants are encouraged to enter the program.
In charge of the program is Earl Riskey, who also has the job
of coordinating all the student I-M action as well. Riskey, who has
been competing in as well as directing the program for years, is very
happy over its success. "There's not a faculty program like it in the
country," he says.
Although individual, doubles, and team competition in the vari-
ous sports is by far the most popular facet of the program, it is by
no means the only means of exercise and relaxation for a faculty
member, as Riskey is quick to point out.
The faculty recreational program is actually broken down into six
separate programs. In addition to the various competitive opportuni-
ties available, there is also an informal program, where members are
encouraged to adopt the "buddy" system for such games as golf, ten-
nis, badminton, etc., and then finish off the day with a swim; an in-
structional program, where individuals wishing to perfect their game
in a certain sport are given individual instruction by staff members
of the physical education department; and a conditioning program,
set up last year, where a physical fitness program has been set up for
faculty members.
The last two programs offered, the club program and the'co-rec-
reation program, are taken part in by both students and faculty. The
club program is for lovers of a particular sport. These individuals are
encouraged to join a sports club, which attempts to stimulate interest
in that particular sport.
The co-recreation program is held Friday evenings at the I-M
building and is very popular among many faculty members
Volleyball is by far the most popular sport among faculty mem-
bers, and competition in that sport is offered each semester. Psychol-
ogy "A" team just wrapped up its second straight crown by defeating
another team from the same department. In all, the Psychology De-
partment entered four teams in competition.
Touch football and basketball, the two most popular sports with
students, has about 12 faculty teams in each sport competing.
The point system similar to that used by student organizations is
used to determine overall champions each year. Last year Psychology
won its second crown, but the Psychologists edged second place
Physics by only two points, 752-750.
The crown for Psychology broke a ten year streak which had
seen them be a cdntender every year but never a champion, since their
first crown in 1950.
Actually, there have only been five champions in the 13 years of
competition.' Education, the Yankees of faculty I-M competition,
dominated from 1950-1957, taking seven straight crowns. Like Psychol-
ogy, the Air Force has claimed two championships, but theirs were
consecutive, in1958 and 1959. The only other crowns have been won
by Army, in 1949, the first year of organized competition, and Busi-
ness Administration, who copped it in 1960.
But with all the teams entered and the tight competition, the
program still hasn't lost its' original purpose: To foster recreation and
enjoyment among faculty members and to promote physical fitness
and exercise, which is so important to adults, especially in this age
of push-button living in our mechanized society.

Against Panther Team in Home Opener

Some of the best swimmers in
collegiate ranks will compete in
the Seventh Annual Big Ten In-
vitation Swimming and Diving
Relays Saturday at Ann Arbor
beginning at 3:00 p.m.
Indiana, with its host of All-
Americans will lead the contenders
from five universities including
Michigan, Michigan State, Kenyon
and Wayne State.
Last year, for the first time,
the meet was scored with points
given for the first six places in
each event and the Hoosiers won
the team title.
In past years the event was
rated as just a warmup for the
coming season which gave the
swimmers a chance to compete
against tough competition without
points being awarded.

Michigan Coach Gus Stager
stated, "Indiana will win. Michi-
gan and Michigan State should
have a good battle, fighting it out
for the second position. Our boys
should win some races from In-
diana, however."

Hoopsiers Display Scoring Balance;

After nine non-conference tilts,
Michigan's 1961 - 62 basketball
squad looks much the same as the
1960-61 team statistically.
This year's team has won only
two games while last year's team
had won three.
So far this year the Wolverines
have scored 582 points on 229
field goals and 124 free throws
for a 64.6 game average. This
compares closely with the 588
points scored on 231 field goals
and 126 free throws for a 65.3
average by the \Wolverines of a
year ago.
Again Michigan has an out-

standing scorer, named John. He
is John Oosterbaan who has gar-
nered 166 points netting 69 buck-
ets by hitting 50.7 per cent of
his shots from the floorrand add-
ing 28 free throws for an 18.4
Last year at this time, John
Tidwell had amassed 161 points
in eight games by hitting 48 per
cent of his field goal tries for 63
field goals and adding 35 free
throws for a 20.1 average.
Better Balanced
Whereas the team of a year ago
had only one other player averag-
ing double figures a game, this
year's squad has three. They are

forward Tom Cole and center John
Harris both with 101 points for
11.2 averages and Bob Cantrell
who has scored 98 points to main-
tain a 10.8 average.
Two departments have shown
improvements over last year. The
team free throw percentage has
improved from 57 per cent to 63.5
per cent. The best individual per-
centage has been posted by Harris
with a 79.4 per cent on 31 out of
39 attempts. The total number of
rebounds has increased from 360
to 426. Harris leads the team with
102 for a respectable 11.3 aver-
age a game. Cole has grabbed 83
and Oosterbaan 70. High at this
time last year was 66.

Paul Dietzel To Leave LSU;
Signs as New Army Mentor

By The Associated Press
Dietzel, Louisiana State's "Golden
Boy" who said he'd never leave
for another coaching post, got his
release yesterday to accept Army's
glamorous top football job.
The 37-year-old Dietzel, whose
Tigers roared to pinnacles of suc-
cess for the past few seasons, had
been the center of a smouldering
sports controversy for a week.
It ended yesterday when the
LSU Board of Supervisors unani-
mously voted to let Dieztle out of
a 5-year $18,500 contract. It had
four years to go.
Dietzel, whose LSU grid pow-
erhouses lured Louisiana scholast-
ic grid stars like Notre Dame
squads of yesteryear, told an

alumni banquet a few months ago:
"I love LSU, and I'll never leave
for another coaching job."
LSU signed Dietzel 7 years ago
when he was an assistant coach at
At West Point, Col. Emroy S.
Adams, Army athletic director,
said he was "elated" at the news.
Adams said he expected Dietzel'
to come to the Point today or
tomorrow before going to the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion meeting.
