Elliott is still optimistic'
ng this year's defensive
should be stronger than
last year. We have more defensive
depth," Elliott commented.
Line coach Bob Hollway went
into more detail on the subject,
"We've been trying to improve
the individuals through drills so
far. The defense hasn't been test-
ed in scrimmage yet."
The first test for the defense
will come today in the first full-
scale scrimmage of the season. The
line seemed solid to the coaches,
but Hollway emphasized the line-
"This year we've started using
fullbacks and centers as lineback-
ers, after having used guards be-
fore. We need better linebacking
to improve over last year."

Wells, recently moved to right half
to replace injured Rick Sygar.
Coach Hollway remarked that
"the work of the sophomores is
particularly gratifying." Proof of
the statement is the fact that
three sophomores are playing with
the first team. "Chuck Dehlin is
also coming along as a linebacker.
Ken Wright has some potential on
defense, but has been slowed up
lately by minor injuries."
Hollway's final comment was,
however, that "linebacking is still
a real question mark."
The starting defensive line has
had :nore experience, and is es-
pecially deep this year. Elliott re-
peatedly stressed the element of
depth this year as opposed to last
year. "Tom Keating has exper-
ience and has performed well this
year." Big Bill Yearby is the only
sophomore on the first line.
The team went through relative-
ly light drills yesterday in prepa-
ration for today's scrimmage, 1:30
p.m. at the Stadium. Being the
first scrimmage of the fall, it will
be the first real test of the team's

first article in a series on various
aspects of the athletic expansion
program of the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics.)
By TOM WEINBERG
Last spring the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics an-
nounced its plan to charge stu-
dents $12 for athletic coupons in
order to finance a long-range
multi - million dollar expansion
The expansion plan entails more
than just replacing musty Yost
Field House with a new basketball
arena. "The basketball arena is
the most immediate need, but it is
far from the only project we will
work on," commented Dean Steph-
en Spurr, chairman of the Plant
Expansion Committee of the Board
Spurr went on to say that in-
cluded in the plans are "added
facilities for intramurals, expan-
sion of the physical education
plants for both men and women,
and increased recreation oppor-
tunities on both the central and
Since the initial announcement
last May, the Board has made
little progress. Before any specific
method for financing the expan-I
sion can be utilized, the needs
must be clearly outlined and the
exact specifications of the pro-
posed expansion muss be clarified.
The Board has authorized hir-
ing preliminaryarchitects to start
working out the details, and ac-
cording to Spurr, "the next step
is to zero in on the exact size,
location and type of structure that
we want to build and to get pro-
fessional help on our layout prob-
$8 Million Project
When the Board first disclosed
its plans, the estimated cost of the
entire project was approximately
$8 million. "The basketball arena
is not going to be a multi-purpose
building such as the $14 million
mushroom at the University of
Illinois," Spurr disclosed. "The
cost of the arena is estimated to
be in the neighborhood of $21/ to
"The exact specifications of the
new arena are uncertain, but the
committee and the University
architect, Lynn Fry, have studied
many new structures across the
country," Spurr went on to say.
country, including the one at the
The exact location of the new
arena and whether or not the
locker room and parking facilities
for the Michigan Stadium will be
able to be used for it remain un-
certain pending the recomnienda-
tions of the architects.
Plans by November
The proposed arena was orig-
inally conceived to be ready for
the 1964-65 basketball season.
Spurr made a statement as to
definite immediate goals when he
said that "by the time this (the
1963-64) basketball season is un-
derway, we should know what
type of structure we want to build,
how big it will be, where it will
be, and approximately how much
it will cost."
The plans for expansion other
than the new field house as orig-
inally disclosed by the Board
would include an addition to
Ferry Field for intramurals and
co-recreational facilities in the
women's pool area.
The plans for financing hinge
on the amount of money required
to complete the various parts of
the plan. The possibility exists
that the University will float a
bond issue to raise the necessary
funds, but the Board in Control,
an in de p e n d e nt organization,
could float its own bond issue and
raise the funds on its own.

144. Palmer had picked up on one
hole during Thursday's practice
round but was even par for the
17 holes he completed.
Charles said after his round he
still thought the 7,165-yard Fire-
stone course was built primarily
for power-hitters and was much
too long for him.
Nothing But Money
Palmer, moving toward the cli-
max of a trouble-plagued year in
which he's won nothing but
money, will give his ailing shoul-
der the supreme test today.
Boros holed two shots from
sand traps during his round yes-
terday and quipped "with my'
luck, I probably won't get into
the sand tmorrow."
The Women's Physical Educa-
tion Club, an organization of phy-
sical education majors, is spon-
soring a tea for the foreign vis-
itors after the two matches. Then
the German team will move on to
Kalamazoo where it will face an
all-star Michigan team including
Margie Bloom and Marilyn Brown.
These two players were main-
stays on the Michigan team that
compiled a 3-0-1 record last sea-
son. The lone tie was against Mich-
igan State and a rematch this
season is assured.
Other tentative games will be
with Eastern Michigan, Western
Michigan, Albion, and Bowling
Gteen. Definite dates have not yet
been arranged but all. home games
usually start at 3:30 Friday after-
noons at Palmer Field.
Practice for the Michigan team
begins Monday afternoon. Coach
Pat Daugert will have her charges
sharpening up their skills every
Monday, Wednesday and Friday
from 4-6 p.m. after that. Any girl
interested in joining the team
should contact Coach Daugert or
any member of the team.
Last season the team had about
25 or 30 members. Since two teams
of 11 players each are needed for

necessary. Coach Daugert plays

football candidates hold their first
scrimmage today, but he has his
eye on a prospective fullback with
qualities in the tradition of past
Buckeye line busters.
The prospect is 212-pound Wil-
lard Sander of Cincinnati. He's
showed hard-driving qualities and
the same speed and ability that
marked him as a freshman.

scrimmage today and it may go
far towards determining the shape
of the 1963 Illini varsity.

some decisions on positions."

Mays was due to return to the

ball fortunes suffered a severe
blow yesterday when the team's
top scorer and rebounder, Jack
Brens, was dropped from school
because of scholastic difficulties.
Brens, a 6-8 senior from St.
Charles, Ill., accounted for 425
points in 24 games last season and
pulled down 306 rebounds. He was
dropped from the college of let-
ters and science for allowing his
grades to fall below the C level.
Coach John Erickson said there
is "no chance at all' that Brens
could regain eligibility.
