Ulniversity Help.
Needed for .Arena;
It will be a sad day for the University if the proposed field
house is built with only 12,000 seats.
' :The Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics only has funds
to finance the debt service on a $3.5 million building. Originally,
the board thought a structure with 14,000 seats could be built for
this price. But architects are now working on cost-cutting plans,
including the reduction of the total number of seats to 12,000, in
order to peg the price at a level that the board can afford.
By any reasonable standards, a 12,000-seat basketball arena
doesn't meet present needs let alone future needs. The construction
of such a small arena would be an admission that the University
is unable to pay for first-class athletic facilities.
Minnesota's William's Arena with 18,000 seats is the largest
college arena in the country. Illinois has just built its Assembly
Hall with seating for 16,000. Thus, the original goal of a 14,000-
seat arena would have put the University in a second-class -position.
A 12,000-seat arena gets down into the substandard area in com-
parison with other leading schools across the country.
20,000 Coupos-. .
Worse than this is that the new field house will be obsolete
before ground is even broken for construction. Yost Field House
seats almost 9,000 so the extra 3,000 seats are some improvement.
However, presently about 20,000 students, faculty, and employees
have athletic coupons which enable them to buy basketball tickets.
Demand from the general public is also heavy. With a student enroll-
ment of over 45,000 estimated for a decade hence, the concept of
a 12,000-seat arena bounds on the ridiculous.-
As has been pointed out, the board is financially incapable of
building a la'ger and more expensive arena. The board delayed
making a definite decision to build the new arena long after the
need was apparent because it didn't want to go ahead with plans
before sufficient funds were available to construct one that would
be large enough to fit future needs.
The board needs help from the University in order to enlarge
the seating capacity of the new arena. Traditionally, the University
budget and the athletic budget have been totally separate. The
athletic department receives a small amount per 'student out of
tuition but otherwise is entirely self-supporting from its own revenues,
primarily the receipts from football ticket sales. But if the athletic
department can't maintain adequate athletic facilities, it will have
to have to take a chance on losing some of its independence by seeking
help from the University.
Besides, the building will not be used just for basketball games.
Commencement and other University functions will be held there.
It seems only reasonable that the University help pay for a facility
that will be used not just for athletic events .but for events of
University-wide interest. I
Despite the lack of initiative by the athletic department .in
seeking financial help from the University, there has been a failure
on the part of University administrators in taking concrete steps
to help the athletic department. 'The one halting proposal for help
was' lost or turned down somewhere in the maze of University
bureacracy last spring. The idea was to have some of the items in
the athletic budget such as some maintenance responsibilities for
the intra-mural program transferred to the University budget. These
items would have saved the athletic department approximately
$100,000 a year which could have been used to finance a larger
bond isstze than is presently planned.
Resources Large ..
',The University has large financial resources although appro-
priations from the state legislature have been significantly less than
the annual request in recent years. Still, it would seem that the
University should assume the responsibility for supporting an ad-
equate athletic plant if the athletic department is not able to do
this. Other schools increase the amount of tuition money allocated
to their athletic programs as tuition increases and the needs of the
athletic department grow. This has not happened at the University
and it's about time that it did.
The University is growing and it has many unmet needs to be
taken care of. No one is trying to argue that the University should
put the athletic building program ahead of faculty salary increases,
library improvement, or any other essential need. But surely the new
field house and other athletic plant additions in the future have
some place in the overall list of University priorities.

Wolverines 'Sharper Offense' Pleases Ellio

The Wolverine Blue team, show-
ing a sharp offensive attack, ran
away from the White defenders
in yesterday's closed practice
game in Michigan Stadium .
The Blue squad, comprised of
the first three teams, triumphed.
63-0. "We were much sharper
offensively despite the lack of
competition," Coach Bump Elliott
commented after the game. "The
purpose of the game was to work
on our offense and to gain ex-
perience in substituting p.erson-
nel." Elliott added that the teams
were not evenly balanced, but de-
spite this the Wolverines displayed
good blocking and an improved
execution of offensive maneuvers.
Quarterback Bob Timberlake
led the third Blue team on a 75-
yard touchdown drive in the final
two minutes of the first half by
continually stopping the clock
with out-of-bounds plays.
Elliott Impressed
Elliott, when asked to comment
on Timberlake's use of the clock,
replied with a broad smile, "I was
impressed." The Blue quarterback
got the drive going by completing
a 10-yard out-of-bounds pass to
Craig Kirby on the White 33-yard
line. Two plays later, Kirby snared
a Timberlake pass at the 47 and

stepped out of bounds to stop the
clock with 1:09 left in the half.
Sophomore back Louis Lee then
dashed to the White 46, but was
able to reach the sidelines to stop
the clock with 59 seconds left.
Timberlake then sprinted for a
first down to the 39-yard stripe,
reaching .the sidelines with 50
seconds left on the clock.
After an incomplete pass, the
Blue signal caller completely baf-
fled the defense by sending Mike
Bass off left tackle for a 16-yard
gain down to the 23. Bass made
it to the sidelines to stop the clock
with 40 seconds left in the half.
Timberlake then rolled to the
right and fired a toucndown pass
to Kirby in the end zone.
Four Blue Quarterbacks
Elliott also used Rick Volk, Pete
Hollis and Wally Gabler at the
Blue quarterback spot. Hollis con-
nected with Dick Rindfuss for a
27-yard touchdown play at the
beginning of the second half. The
other seven tallies were scored on
the ground as Wolverine backs saw
plenty of action during the game.
Sophomore Mike Bass, who pre-
viously had seen mainly defensive
action, broke loose on two occa-
sions. Bass exploded through the
White line for a 35-yard touch-
down run down the right side-
lines. The Ypsilanti speedster


Jim Detwiler, a powerfully-built
sophomore halfback, made quar-
terback Gabler's signal calling
easy at one point in the second
half. The Blue team got the ball
on its own 37-yard line. Gabler
handed off to Detwiler who
crashed through the right side of
the line for a 14-yard gain to the
White 49. The next play was to
Detwiler, and again he blasted
through the White line and went
all the way for the touchdown.
The other two tallies in the
contest were scored by Barry Deh-
lin and Gabler, five- and four-
yard runs respectively.
Although the Blue defense was
not really tested, Elliott did sound
pleased with the work of sopho-
morelinebacker Frank Nunley.
Nunley repeatedly brake into the
White backfield to nail Frosty
Evashevski or Jim Sieber for siz-
able losses. Safety Dick Rindfuss
had the longest run of the game,
picking off an Evashevski pass on
the Blue three-yard line. Rindfuss
then sprinted 85 yards to the
White 12, before Rick Ott tackled
him from behind.
Clancy Still Injured
The disappointing morment of
'the day occurred when Elliott was
asked about h al f b a c k Jack
Clancy's back ailment. "It doesn't
look good. He's out of the hospital
but his back still bothers him.
Right now it appears questionable
whether Clancy will play this
year." Clancy, who was a starting
offensive halfback last season,
suffered a back injury this summer
and has been in traction the last
couple of weeks.
Besides Fisher, center Brian
Patchen missed the scrimmage be-
cause of a slight infection in his
right arm. Both are expected to
return to action in the next couple
of _days. Tackle Bill Yearby suf-
fered a shoulder strain in the
c game so saw only limited action.
Trainer Jim Hunt was quick to
add that Air Force will definitely

touchdown pluige in the first
quarter was set up by Ward's
four-yard gain. Ward, trapped by
two defenders in the backfield,
broke toward the left sideline,
stumbled, regained his balance
and turned the corner, driving to
the five. Ward also scored the
final touchdown. of the day, sweep-
ing left end with three blockers
for a 37-yard dash to pay dirt.
Anthony saw a lot of action be-
cause of Dave Fisher's charley
horse injury. Fisher did not ap-
pear in the contest, but Anthony
appeared as the bread-and-butter
man in the first half, coming up
with the five- and six-yard gains
necessary to keep the offense

Michigan's soccer club takes to
the field tomorrow against Deni-
son in the first intercollegiate
game in the club's history.,
The date set for the gamej was
originally Sept. 26, but this was
moved back one .week. to accom-
modate Denison which had sched-
uled a junior varsity game for
that date also. "This is a rebuild-
ing year for us," explained as-
sistant coach Ted Barclay of Deni-
son, "and we haven't the person-
nel to play both a varsity and
junior varsity game on the same
Major league
. . andings

date." Denison finished the 1963
season with a 7-3 record, and is
a perenial power in the Ohio Soc-
cer Association.
The date change leaves Michi-1
gan not quite ready for a full
game, but "we'llbe giving them
the best game we can" according
to team captain Perry Hood.
Five seniors are listed as start-
ers for Michigan. Adolph Arm-
bruster, 5'6" forward, will pace the
offense, along with" outside for-
ward Viggo Stoltenberg-Ijansen
:The defense boasts three senior
returnees in Pete Skoinik, Dick
Scheer, and captain Hood. Last
year's team compiled a 5-1 season
mark in the International Centers
student league, tying with the
Greek students for the crown.
Added to the defense this year
are two freshmen, goalkeeper Pete
Roeper and left halfback Mario
Winter, an experienced player
from Ann Arbor. Sophomore Dick
Hendrickson fills out the defense
at right fullback; with substitute
players Dave Coghian and Chuck
Wright ready to fill in when need-
Filling out the offense are sophs
Don Alcorn and Warren Shear,
and freshman Mike de Martelly.
Denison figures to be Michigan's
toughest opponent, accol'ding to
Hood, as soccer has been a varsity
sport there longer than at the
tother four schools scheduled. This
is the first year of intercollegiate
play for the soccer club.
