IM ICE HOCKEY IN FULL SWING
The 'other' hosts at
By ALAN FANGER
There's a hockey double header at Yost Ice Arena to-
Admission is free, and there are good seats available.
The concession stands won't be open, but the action will
be hot and heavy.
The varsity hockey team may confine its competitive
activity to the. weekends, but aggressive hockey is in town
all week long during the intramural ice hockey season.
Monday through Thursday nights from 10:30 to 12:30, 16
teams composed of both graduates and undergrads get
together in the hallowed structure on State Street and vie
for a championship trophy which means the world to
many of these men on skates.
The league consists of four divisions having four teams
each. "Sixteen is a perfect number of teams for a league
like this one," said IM hockey director Dick Pitcher.
"Eliminations divide out perfectly, so there's no need for
Teams which play every Monday night form their own
division, as do teams on succeeding nights. Each team
plays a round-robin season of three games to determine a
representative in the post-season four4eam playoff.
The ice hockey program is unique in its use of an
intercollegiate athletic facility (Yost) for the sport. Thus
ice time is limited due to varsity practices. This time
restriction imposes a limit upon the number of teams
participating in the program. "We simply take entries on
a first come, first serve basis," explained Pitcher.
And those who do participate find the competition
intense and exciting. "I think a lot of the intensity comes
from taking out the week's frustrations," said Tom Lamb,
captain of a Tuesday night division team. "Since most of
the guys have played in a league before, there's naturally
going to be fierce competition."
Each player supplies his own equipment, which proves
difficult for many players. "You have to have good
equipment, or else you can get pretty well banged up out
there," said Gregg Thomas, a teammate of Lamb's.
Equipment alone is not enough to prevent injuries,
however, as many result from hockey's universal trade
"The IM department, to nobody's surprise, strongly
objects to any'violence on the ice, and has had to use
disciplinary action against overaggressive sorts.
Fortunately, we haven't had any severe incidents this
season," said Pitcher. "But in the past we have had to
submit cases to a student board, and players have been
expelled from the league."
Any type of physical abuse is strictly taboo during game
play, as is evidenced by the large amount of penalties
which are handed out over the three 12-minute periods.
"You really have to watch what you're doing out there,"
said Lamb, "or else they (the referees) will throw you in
the box for a couple of minutes."
But despite the cautious atmosphere imposed by league
officials and referees, the players find room for some hard
checking. "We can go out and get in some good checks,"
said Thomas, "and we can take them as well. But we all
have a good time."

INTRAMURAL HIGHLIGHTS DROUGHT TO YOU Dy

IM Building celebrates
50th year with
If buildings could talk, imagine the tales they
could tell. Most structures would recall the
wrathful sentiment of Michigan students during
the Vietnam War. Others could 'relate student
nightlife prior to television. And still others,
although few in number, could describe the
euphoric sensation which swept through Ann
Arbor following the last Maize and Blue Rose Bowl
victory, so many years ago.
Now, after five decades of silence, one such
building will publicly share its memories from
over the years.
ON SATURDAY, October 28, immediately after
the Homecoming Football Game, the Department
of Recreational sports is sponsoring a "Touch of
Gold" celebration to commemorate the 50th
anniversary of the Intramural Sports Building on
606 E. Hoover. The festivities will run until
Everyone is invited to the jubilee, especially
those alumnists and students who have
participated in IM sports over the years.
Most present day activities will be offered, such
as basketball, racquetball, weight-lifting, open
swimming and squash. However many other
events will be showcased throughout the evening
in conjunction with the celebration.
Such activities include slide shows contrasting
Supplementing younger players over the decades,
The Flounders average about 35 years in age.
"It (the jubilee) is set up to be a very informal
program," says Dick Pitcher, Associate Director
for Recreational Sports. "We're proud to possess
the first indoor facility built specifically for
college intramural sports in the country, and are
happy to share its memories with the public."
The IM building was built in 1928. Noting that
varsity level sports monopolized all indoor
athletic facilities, the athletic department issued
funds to construct such a facility for recreational-
intramural use. To show how far Michigan was.
ahead of its time, it wasn't until 1957 when another
university (Purdue) resurrected a building of this
type nearly 30 years later.
DURING ITS first 20 years, 1928-1948, the IM
was open exclusively for men. Basketball was the
most popular sport with over 4,200 participants,
and paddleball was a close second. Paddleball, in
fact, originated here at U of M in 1930 and
continues strong popularity.
Tournaments for both basketball and paddleball
were conducted, with sweaters and Block M's
awarded as prizes to champions.
It wasn't until 1948 that women were allowed
into the IM building-and then only on Friday.
Friday night was designated as "Ladies Night" in
which co-eds were usually accompanied by a date.
Finally, in 1968, women were welcome to
participate in numerous recreational activities
within the IM.
AS THE years wore by, renovation became
more inevitable. In 1972 the swimming pool was
renovated, as was the gymansium the following
In 1976, as the IM approached its Golden
Anniversary, officials closed down the building
during the spring/summer term for additional
