this year than any year. The so-
lution, I suppose, is we've got to
have more money in the budget
for intramurals."
As to this added expense out
of the athletics budget, Canham
adds, "We don't mind it at all,
as long as we can afford it. We
don't begrudge the money spent
on intramurals and recreation."
What's $160,000 a' year when the
athletic department spends over
$3 million? Why doesn't more of
the money go to intramurals?
With a $5 per student per term
assessment for athletic and over
40,000 students on University cam-
puses, where is the more than
$340,000 that does not go to the in-
tramurals department?
The answer is that it goes to pay
off the construction debt on the
University's "white elephant",
Crisler Arena.
This extravagant expenditure of
student fees was approved by a stu-
dent referendum before most Uni-
versity students came here. And

The purpose of the structure was

provide classroom space for phy-
sical education classes, and pro-
vide meeting rooms for club sports.
The building, when placed be-
fore the Senate Advisory Commit-
tee on University Affairs (SACUA),
was approved on the basis of all
three provisions. But the primary
use of the building is for the foot-
ball team.
The Ad Hoc Committee Report
to SACUA stated, "Examining the
merits of the specific case, it is
clear that the proposed Sports Ser-
vices Building offers distinct bene-
fits . . . It is also evident that the
most direct beneficiaries of the
medical and locker room expan-
sion will be the varsity teams, and
especially the football team,
though there will be indirect bene-
fits to intramural and club sports
participants through the freeing of
Yost Fieldhouse quarters."
The Advisory Committee on Re-
creation, Intramurals, and Club
Sports (ACRICS), created in 1968
by the Regents for the purpose of
advising Canham on the needs of
the University with respects to in
tramurals, recreation, and club
sports, was awarded a $600,000
three year budget at its inception.
The bulk of this money, $284,263,
was expended on the installation
of the Ferry Field Tartan Turf.
Like the Sports Services Building,
the field primarily benefits the
football team, although the field
is available for intramurals and
club sports.
Though the athletic department
needed Tartan Turf, it is not clear
that it was essential to the intra-
mural and recreation program.
Perhaps, the money could have
been soent more wisely, from the
IM point of view, which is sup-
posed to be ACRICS' as well) on
lighting Palmer Field or as a start
towards a new intramural building.
ACRICS is composed of stu-
dents, faculty, and administration
representatives, but it is chaired
by Canham, and Canham wields a
great deal of influence.
Why do the actions of the Board
and ACRICS favor intercollegiate
'athletics as opposed to intramur-
als and recreation?
Perhaps the needs of intramurals
and recreation do no get enough
exposure to those people who carn
fund the money - the University
administration, the Regents, and
ultimately the state legislature.
In fact, lack of communication is
partly the problem. The IM De-
partment, as it is currently placed
in the University bureaucracy, has
no direct connection with the fund-
ing authorities.
As a sub-division of a sub-divi-
sion of the athletic department,
the Department of Intramurals and
Recreation receives its f u n d s
through the Board. Thus, the needs
of intramurals and recreation must
compete with both the needs of
intercollegiate athletics and the
needs of physical education, which
is also subsumed beneath the
Can the athletic director, who-
ever may hold that position, effec-
tively represent intramurals and
recreation when his major con-
cerns are football and the other
intercollegiate athletics?
Canham thinks so. Referring to
himself, he states, "I think they
(IM's) have a pretty big voice
now." He added, "Not everyone
is interested in recreation, and the
job of the University is to decide
on priorities."
It's possible that Canham is
right and that IM's problems can
be traced to the University's pri-
orties. But it could also be argued
that someone other than the ath-
letic director would be more force-
flil with the University and the Re-
gents on behalf of intramurals
and recreation.
