By BILL ALTERMAN
Three years ago the Regents
formed the Advisory Committee
for Recreational, Intramural
and Club Sports, or ACRICS as
it is more commonly known. In
those three years the committee
has had its proponents and de-
tractors, but most committee
members agree that ACRICS
has, in the words of athletic
director - Don Canham, been
"quite effective.'
Canham cites the board's di-
versity as one of its major as-
sets. "This gives us some re-
commendations from areas you
normally wouldn't get," adding,
"It's their function to recom-
mend things that are needed"
for IM facilities.
In addition to its advisory ca-
pacity, ACRICS has had, for
each of the last three years,
$200,000 to allocate as it sees
fit. Most of this has gone for
capital improvements such as
improving the playing fields
and providing sports equipment
for the dorms.
Likewise ACRIS has kept
watch on possible encroachment

of intramural facilities by other
institutions.
Still, according to Rodney
Grambeau. director of Intra-
murals, ACRICS for two years
has been concentrating on "the
small things instead of the big
things.
"The administration needs to
be made aware of these prob-
lems. (Recreational) facilities
have fallen behind at Michigan
and we should be developing
actions to try and catch up. As
an advisory commitee, ACRIC
has not actually functioned."
Grambeau considers ACRICS
actions of the past "necessary,
but only stopgap types of im-
provement.
"We have not had the op-
portunity to develop lo n g
range programs. Current faci-
lities were set up for a time
when the University had 9,000
students. Today there are 35-
40,000. The intramural phys ed
picture has been on the down-
grade for 20 years."
The villain is the same one
inhabiting every other branch
of the University-funding.

Because of the current money
squeeze and cutbacks at the
University, no one is optimistic
about the chances of any major
funding in their near future.
Nevertheless, ACRICS has set
up a subcommitee to delve, once
again, into the issue of a new
intramural building.
Last year's proposal went up
in smoke when some students
complained about being assessed
yearly fees for a building they
had no say over.
James White, professor of
law, is head of the subcommitee,
which is examining how other
Big Ten intramural programs
have been funded and how best
to fund a new one at Michigan.
It expects to report to the full
committee within a month and
White expressed his hope that
the commission "will m a k e
proposals for a new IM struc-
ture.
"If we don't, nobody will," he
added.
Bill Steude, committee mem-
ber and director of office of stu-
dent-community relations, ad-
mits the "committee is d i s-
couraged over the IM building
program."
Steude does feel, however,
ACRIC provides a "formal me-
chanism" for making future
plans.
Jackie Boney, vice president
of the Sports Club Federation
and a frequent observer of AC-
RIC meetings agrees that t h e
committee "does a lot of good
things. They spent their money
well."
She echoed Grambeau's feel-
ings though when she added.
"It hasn't exercised its advisory
capacity. The committee could
have a future without money if
it exercised this capacity. This
has never been explored."
One gripe most members of
ACRIS have is their lack of

communication with the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics.
Boney feels "The Board and
the Committee should work to-
gether to establish guidelines on
facilities."
Adds Steude, "the Board and
ACRICS are working in the
same area, using much the same
if not THE same facilities. What
is needed is more cooperation,
more coordination and not in-
dependence by ACRICS."
Yesterday, members of the
Board and the Committee did get
together at a regularly sched-
uled ACRIC meeting. Steude
termed it a "fruitful begin-
ning" and said the two sides
agreed to a regular exchange
of information and documenta-
tion.

Tankers face Tigers, Toronto

Canham, while expressing his
desire that "this will not be the
last meeting" between the two
groups, did admit it "was a
problem getting people togeth-
er. It's tough to find the time
and the place."
ACRICS itself has 14 mem-
bers including six students, (two
ex-officio), four faculty and
four administration members.
Although some people have ex-
pressed reservations as to the
makeup of the board, most feel
as White does, that it "doesn't
make any difference. Some peo-
ple are interested, some are
not." White did say the board
needs somebody like Grambeau
"who knows what is happening
day to day."
Grambeau, for one, expressed
concern over the committee's

leadership. "It has not be e n
possible for certain key people
to spend time with committee,"
he complained.
Canham, who up until recent-
ly was committee chairman,
feels the committee has "work-
ed pretty well, particularly last
year. It should stay in its cur-
rent form . . . It is effective."
Grambeau's vision of the
ACRICS of the future is of a
somewhat different organization,
"ACRICS should be on an
equal level with the athletic
board, with interconnections be-
tween the two."
The recreational and IM fa-
cilities and activities, he added,
should be "brought up to a kind
of program you would expect at
Michigan."

By RANDY PHILLIPS
Princeton's swimming coach'
Robert Farley h o p e s his Tiger
squad can put on a particularly
good performance tomorrow when
It takes on Michigan's undefeated
tankers. T h e Wolverines also
splash in against Toronto tonight
at home. Farley and Bob Webster,
Tiger diving mentor, are b o t h
Michigan swimming products, and
they would I i k e nothing better
than tos hawup their former
coach, Gus Stager.
But despite their wishes it looks
as though Michigan has too much
depth. However, Stager is not pre-
dicting an easy victory by any
means. "We could run into diffi-
culty if we 1 o s e the diving; it
should be the same type of match
as the MSU meet." The Wolver-
ines beat the Spartans last week,
mainly on the strength of some
sweeps in key events and an over-
all depth advantage.
Farley and Stager both agree
that the diving events will be the
most competitive. Farley remark-
ed, "It should be an extremely
close a n d excellent diving con-
test." Co-captain John Huffstutler
will be springing off both boards
while Collins Landstereet will add
a further threat to Michigan's
diving duo of Dick Rydze and Joe
Crawford.
Wolverine diving coach D i c k
Kimball plans to take along a
third diver, probably either Steve
Schenthal or Jim Creede.
Princeton has not fared as well
as expected this year and coach
Farley is not at all happy with its
4-2 record or its times. But the
Tigers are usually one of the top
teams in the East, and Farley still
hopes to be a potent force in his
league.

Charlie Campbell, a sophomore,
is "a very good all-around swim-
mer and is the only one really
performing on the team," accord-
ing to Farley. Campbell's top event
is the 200 yard backstroke, and he
has recorded a 1:58.1 so far this
year.
Stager feels that the backstroke
should be the m o s t interesting
race of the meet, and he plans to
"throw the best at them" w i t h
Don Peterson, Chris Hansen, and
Steve McCarthy.
Farley considers Michigan "su-
per strong" in the butterfly and
the breaststroke, and these are the
two events that Stager is expect-
ing sure points. The Wolverines
have three flyers down under two
minutes, while the Tigers' b e s t
clocking is by Rex Boder at 2:02.0.

d

Nevertheless, Farley thinks that
Boder and Vaughan Howard could
still make a good race out of it.
Farley hopes to also get a good
showing out of freestyle specialist
Jack Garretson in both the 100
yard event and the 400 yard free-
style relay. Princeton has record-
ed a 3:17.5 in t hae relay event
which is just a shade slower than
Michigan's top mark.
In tonight's meet against a rel-
atively weak Toronto squad the
Wolverines will be trying to give
some lesser-used people a little
bit of competitive work.
Toronto's best performer is
backstroker Jim Shaw who is
probably among the top two or
three backstrokers in Canada. The
meet will be free to the public and
will start at 7:30 p.m. in Matt
Mann Pool.
