by Bill Bullard
a Athletic Board Election:
A Candidate's Pledge
I wouldn't even be voting in the election for student representative
on the Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics if it wasn't for a
campaign pledge made by candidate Mary Freedman.
Freedman, the head manager of the track team, has announced
that if elected he will attempt to let the students know when decisions
affecting them are being made. "Any proposal before the Board that
involves students should be discussed and criticized by the student
body," Freedman maintains. "The only way you can be sure of student
opinion is to let students know about a proposal and see their re-
actions to it.
"I feel the Board owes the students an explanation for any
such action it is about to take. If the Board persists in holding
closed meetings, and if I'm elected, I will make sure the students
hear about any pending decisions affecting them."
Freedman cited the possible student athletic coupon fee increase
from the present $12 to $15 that the Board is rumored to be discussing
as an example of an issue that students ought to be openly discussing.
If past precedent holds, the Board will wait until just before the final
exam period before announcing any new price increase.
This is a tactic the Board has used successfully in the past two
years to quell student protests. After arriving at a decision in secret
session, the Board announced last May 4, only one week before final
exams started, that it would charge students $1 to attend each home
9 basketball game this season.
The Annual Report.. ..
It is interesting to note that the Board's annual report did not
even mention the fact that it made the decision to begin charging
students to attend basketball games. From this it can be assumed that
the Board doesn't feel that charging students money to attend
basketball games is significant enough to mention.
It could be that students themselves don't care if student
prices to attend Wolverine athletic events are raised year after
year. But at least students should have the opportunity to express
their opinions before these decisions are made.
Freedman's pledge to try and rally student opposition to Board
policies that adversely affect students is a step in the right direction.
This is a significant change from past candidates who promised to
represent students if elected to the Board but who didn't believe in
violating the secrecy of the Board. Tom Weinberg, elected to a student
seat last spring, has not had any visible success in changing the
policy of secrecy and has felt it his duty not to break any confidence
the Board has placed in him.
Secret Proceedings ...
It would be interesting to elect a student who was reckless enough
and possibly foolhardy enough to disclose the secret proceedings of
the Board. If this were the case, the Board might just as well open
its meetings to the press and public. Then if the students weren't able
to bring pressure on the Board to take its interests into consideration,
the students would have no one to blame but themselves.
Freedman's opponent is Rick Volk, a starting defensive half-
back on Michigan's Big Ten champion football team. Until this
election, the Manager's, Council nominated two athletes who ran
for a student seat on the Board and one of the two invariably won.
Last year was an exception in that Weinberg, who had to submit
a petition of 300 signatures, defeated Cazzie Russell and two others.
Due to a change in a Regents by-law, both candidates in this election
have submitted petitions in order to be placed on the ballot. It is to
Volk's credit that he showed enough interest in running to go through
the procedure of gathering 300 signatures. However, he has apparently
done little else since then to further his candidacy.
Volk would probably be a good representative if elected. But I'd
personally rather see a person on the Board who indicates some
promise of blowing the lid off the Board's secrecy. That person is
Mary Freedman.

Looking Ahead
67 But Ed is also looking forward
to the championship meets - the
Western Conference and the na-
tionals. "He's shooting for a 1:56
in the Big Ten's," comments
Coach Gus Stager, "and he wants
to be even better than that in
the nationals."
Bartsch feels that this is the
time which he will have to swim
to win this year's race in the
200-yard backstroke. "A lot of
people think that there's always
- a let-down in swimmers' times
after the Olympics," says the
blond-haired swimmer, "but this
year there are a lot of guys who
are still in top shape, and the
times should be faster than ever.'
Ed says that there are two main
types of swimmers - those who

fast starters usually have an ad-
vantage because the race is over
so quickly, but in the longer events
the strong finishers very often
have time to catch up.
"I guess I'm neither type of
swimmer." Bartsch remarks. "I
try to pace myself with the fastest
swimmer in the race, and then I
try to make my move at the right
time. I try to prepare myself
mentally, and against some swim-
mers I can get an advantage by
out-guessing them."
But No Cigar
Although Bartsch has to his
credit pool, varsity, national and
international records, the closest
he has ever come to a Big Ten in-
dividual championship is second
place. As a sophomore he finished
second in the 200-yard backstroke
and third in the 100-yard race. In
his junior year, he repeated his
second for 200 yards, and moved
up to second in the shorter event,
"I've always felt that the Big
Ten meet comes too early," Ed ex-
plains. "I haven't been hitting my
peak until the nationals."
And, indeed, after his runnerup
performance in the Big Tens as a
sophomore, Bartsch came back a
short time later to win the 200-
yard backstroke in the NCAA
meet. Then in the NAAU's, he
swam a :53.5 100 yards to qualify
for the Pan-American Games.
Biggest Thrill
"The biggest thrill I've ever got-

gest accomplishment was winning
the Pan-Ams." In the Games at
Sao Paulo, Brazil, Bartsch swam
the 100 meters in 1:01.5.
"He has a sincere interest in
becoming a great swimmer," notes
Shger, "and he's got the poten-
tial to be one. In fact, he's one of
the greatest backstrokers in the
nation right now."
This is evident not only in
Bartsch's national and interna-
tional marks, but also in that he
currently holds down the varsity
records in both the 100- and 200-
yard backstroke events. Previously
the 200-yard pool record and a
share of the varsity medley relay
record . ere held by Bartsch.
Home Town 'Y'
Bartsch began his career about
12 year sago at a local YMCA in
his home town. Before he came to
Michigan he was coached along
mainly by two people, one of
whom was an ex-Wolverine var-
sity swimmer, and the father of
Tom Williams, who is a varsity
swimmer here now.
"Mr. Williams helped me along
quite a bit and encouraged me to
go to Michigan," Ed explains.
While in high school, Jim
Campbell, swimming coach at
Penn, started helping him. He en-
couraged Bartsch to go to a school
with a good swimming coach.
Bartsch had had offers from
Ohio State, Michigan State, Yale,
and some other eastern schools,
but was already pretty sure that
he would accept Michigan's offer.
According to Ed, "Mr. Williams
took me to Ann Arbor, and Gus
impressed me quite a bit when I
first met him. Later we talked at
the nationals, and Stager showed a
real interest in me. It wasn't really
too hard a decision."
Elected Captain
Last year Bartsch was elected
captain by his teammates, prob-
ably the biggest honor a team can
give one of its members. "There
were only four juniors to choose
from," Ed points out modestly,

"but it's always a great thrill to
be captain, especially of a great
And as a captain, one of his
goals could be realized by leading
his team to a Big Ten Champion-
ship for the first time since 1960.
"We've worked together for a
long time, and we've had our ups
and downs," recalls Stager. "He's
a wonderful guy to work with."
It's been a good three years for
Ed Bartsch, and his achievements
have been many ... but he's not
quite finished yet.
