Let me first of all clear up one
point. There is absolutely no truth
to the rumor that the U-M Athletic
Department shelled out a mere $75
in support of the Club Skiing Team.
A team, which incidently boasts of
a first' place showing in the United
States Ski Association regionals;
recently held at Nub's Knob. Ac-
tually, the Athletic Department saw
fit to donate $50, which according
to Team President Jim Byrnes,
will just about take care of the
expenses of one man for one meet.j
To say that Byrnes was satisfied
with the Athletic Department's $50
proposal at the beginning of the
year is of course wrong. But cer-
tainly he wasn't as concerned with
this refusal of more money then;
as he is now, especially in light!
of the opportunity to send skiers
to the USSA divisionals being held
this weekend in Minnesota. The
lack of finances, however, has cost
the team this opportunity. This is

THE BIG FELLA, Michigan center Ken Brady (15), leaps high as he lets go a shot against Indiana's
Hoosiers at Crisler Arena earlier this year. Brady, expected to dominate the boards in Michigan's cage
contests this year, has come through with an average of only 9.2 rebounds per game.

SECOND SEMESTER SOPHOMORE
Again this year the academic departments of the College of LSA are scheduling concentration meetings
for second semester sophomores who will shortly make decisions about choice of a major. At these meetings rep-
resentatives of the departments will explain their offerings requirements, and career possibiilties. They wil also
answer questions relating to their programs.
Second semester sophomores and others who may wish to have information on department programs are
urged to attend those meetings which pertain to their academic and career goals. All meetings are scheduled to
precede the beginning of advanced classification, so student decisions may be reached before course elections
are to be made. (Schedules for 20 other departmental concentration meetings were published on February 15
DEADLINE: MARCH 2
