MICHIGAN R OWING GROWS
Rowers enthused despite troubles
By BILLY NEFF
Consider this plight: you wake up at
six in the morning, every morning, and
run down to your practice site, regar-
dless of the weather. The weather
usually is not conducive to peak per-
formances. And sometimes you are
without a coach.
The equipment you .normally work
with cannot be used anywhere but in
practice. For races, you borrow
someone else's equipment. Some of the
equipment you practice with was used
in the 1952 Pan American Games.
FURTHERMORE, some part of your
equipment is snapping all the time.
Thus, you spend much of practice men-
ding equipment. If that isn't enough to
dampen your spirits, a windstorm blew
all of your equipment over and
smashed it last spring.
What in the world makes you con-
tinue to persevere under such con-
Michigan rowing club member Alex
Johnson, who has endured all the
aforementioned horrors, remains stoic
about his sport. "The whole reason the
people in the club put so much work into
it is because they want to row," said
Johnson, a former president of the club.

"THE FIRST semester I rowed we
didn't have an eight (oared boat),"
Johnson said, referring to the number
of rowers and oars in the boat..
"Whenever we raced, we rowed with
people we hadn't rowed with before,"
Therefore, the club borrowed equip-
ment, which it has been doing ever sin-
ce, in order to race. Johnson believes
the borrowing of equipment affects a
"The equipment we borrow usually is
not that good, and we're not used to it.
It's like running in a strange pair of
shoes," Johnson declared.
IN PRACTICE, the Michigan rowers
suffer with some very shoddy equip-
ment, including the boat in the 1952 Pan
American Games. Fortunately for the
club, though, Al Arbury, a rowing en-
thusiast in Detroit, donated a boat last
year to the University.
"It's the only boat that we have that
is raceable, which is one of the
problems we have. We don't have any
equipment that is raceable," Johnson
"A new boat costs $6,000-$8,000. We

they don't like the,facilities. This year,
the people who have rowed before (at
other schools) have stayed. We've
come to the point where we can put out
an experienced boat first day so they
stay," Johnson pointed out.
Johnson has seen the turnaround fir-
sthand. "It's a lot more competitive.
Now you have to compete for seats in a
boat. When I first came here, we used to
beg people to show up so we could
race," he continued.
"THE FIRST time I came we could

Johnson concluded. (Michigan's rowers
