Michigan .Rec program .. .
. unkept promises
WHEN THE REGENTS tacked on an additional $10 to our
tuition last April, they made several promises:
a total cost of $5.5 million;j
1) Two new intramural facilities would be constructed atj
2) The Coliseum, which formerly housed the ice rink,
would be renovated by October 15 to contain several basket-
ball courts;
3) Yost Field House, which was once the track team's
home, would become the ice rink;
4) A new track building would be constructed near the
baseball field; and
5) Funds for the operation of the new buildings-and the
old ones-would be made available.
Sadly, only some of the promises have been met.
Currently, the planning of the new buildings has moved along
at a tolerable pace. The ice rink, of course, must be ready. And
so, too, must the track building.
Varsity sports at Michigan must go on. Of course, they will.
But what about the student who is paying the 10 bucks, and who
isn't on a "free ride?" This semester, the 'U' raised tuition by
24 per cent, and next semester the first four bucks of the ten
dollar recreation assessment will be added to student's bills.
But the Coliseum, which was "supposed" to open in
October, now won't be ready until mid-January, at the earliest.
Waterman and Barbour gymnasiums, both necessary links in
the University's recreation program, are now closed. The cause?
A lack of those "promised" operational funds.
That explanation would be the simplest. But actually it's not
the case. Intramural director Rod Grambeau receives his budget
from the Athletic Department. Don Canham heads that depart-
ment which also must fund the physical education department.
Canham has always claimed that without those other in-
trusions he would make out just fine. That is, if he can justify
spending over $1 million on minor varsity sports. So Canham
gives a chunk of the budget to phys. ed. head Paul Hunsicker and
then part of that filters down to Grambeau.
This year, Grambeau's budget request was cut by $12,000
and his only course was to close Waterman and Barbour (until
October 1, he says).
Grambeau, you see, is not in any position to tell Canham
that he Isn't happy.
"I wouldn't like to comment on this," he says, "but the
more problems you have with your budget, the more problems
you have everywhere else."
The closing of Barbour actually eliminates all free play
after 5 p.m., and when co-rec sports are supposed to start, they
will be without a home. This will be especially tragic, since co-rec
basketball, in which three guys and three girls team up, has
become a campus favorite. Co-rec softball and co-rec volleyball
are also.popular.
Canham is currently having problems getting the track
building off the ground. All those who in the past used Yost for
their winter home, may be without one temporarily. Needless to
say, there will be a lot of unhappy people.
All of this brings us to the question of the Athletic Depart-
ment's organization. Nobody is happy with the current
structure, and at the present everyone is suffering. Canham
feels that it is a burden for him to carry recreation, while
Grambeau is unhappy with the budget response. And it's the
students who get the shaft in the end.
Last winter, the University executive officers were. commis-
sioned by the regents to explore alternative ways of funding
recreation and operational costs. To this day, nothing has been
It was suggested at an earlier Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics meeting, th'at beer should be sold at campus
sporting events and the profits go to campus recreation. The
committee roared with laughter and agreed that drunks had no
place in the Michigan Stadium. I wonder how many wine bottles
are carted out of Michigan Stadium each Saturday?
The Board, however, doesn't realize that it's the students
who are to be served. Those few "gifted" athletes are wined
and dined by Canham's Board, but the rest of us are laughed
at like we're meaningless.
Then there is ACRICS, the Advisory Committee on Recreation,
Intramurals and Club Sports. Its chief function is to advise the
department on problems concerning those three areas. But when
the majority -of votes come from the department itself, it

becomes very hard for it to be "advised."
As a member of that committee for nearly a year and one-
half, it's been almost impossible to pass legislation that goes
against Canham's wishes.
So as long as recreation is buried under Canham's
dynasty it will rerpain a losing entity.
We'lltcontinue paying for promises and getting little more
than that.
