MINOR SPORTS LOSE AID:
Grant structure overhauled

HILLEL HIGHHOLY DAY SERVICES
(pleose note change of location for Conservative services)

By BOB ANDREWS,
It is no state secret that the Big
Ten athletic departments are suf-
fering through serious financial
struggles while receiving minimal
assistance from their respective
universities. Attempting to rectify
the situation, the conferences' ath-
letic directors concurred at a stra-
tegy session last spring that the
wisest alternative possible to con-
serve the nearly depleted funds
would result in a scaling down of
the scholarship program for the
minor sports
Affected by the decision are the-
following collegiate endeavors:
baseball, track, tennis, golf, gym-
nastics, swimming and wrestling.
However, spared from this pro-
posed cutback are football, basket-

b 11 and hockey on the assumption
that these "big three" are con-
sidered revenue sports. As the
logic follows, a reduction in the
number of scholarships would
bring about a reduction in the
school's luring power for the na-
tion's top talent as well as an ev-
eatual decrease in the attendance
figures.
In past years,, each Big Ten
school was allowed 70htotal schol-
arships with football securing 30-
35 of these and basketball six, both
legislated figures throughout the
conference. The remaining awards
would then be divided among the
remaining sports, except hockey
which was exempt from the ruling:
because it was not considered to
be a Big Ten sport, having only

four schools involved in the West- maining units to recruit anyone

last year's third place finish in thec
Big Ten.
Key reasons for Farmer's op-
timism are the recruiting of ex-
perienced high school talent, the
return of every member of last
year's team, and Keith Brown.
Last year Brown, as a fresh-
man, placed eighth in the Big Ten
Championships and was the first
Wolverine as well as freshman, to
cross the finish line. At the NCAA
Championships Brown finished
99th and was the eleventh fresh-
man to finish.
During the course of his fresh-
man year Brown posted a 13:46.5
for three-miles, establishing a new
school record. Farmer expects
Brown to reach even greater
heights this season.
Sophomore George Khouri who
paced the Wolverines in their first
two meets last season, but was be-
set with leg injuries, is expected;
to be back in form this season,
after logging over 1200 miles this
summer.
If Khouri can remain healthy
during the 1972 campaign he will
provide considerable competition
for Brown in his bid for the num-
ber one spot.
Pres.sing Brown and Khouri for
the top spots on this season's
squad will be John Cross, a tal-
ented freshman prospect from
Cross has recorded a 9:19 two-
mile high school performance and
ran one of the six fastest high
school ten mile with a time of 51:
23. He is also the second fastest,
six-miler in Michigan history.
Although standing in the sha-
dows of Brown, Khouri, and Cross,
middle distance man Bill Bolster
from Mallow, County Cork, Ire-
land, according to Farmer could
be the key to the success or fail-
ure of this season's team.
Bolster, who finished sixteenth
in last year's Big Ten Champion-
ships, missing a place on the all
Big Ten cross-country team by

one place was third in the 800
meter run at the Irish Olympic
Trials and foiled to make Ire-
land's national team.
The harriers will open their reg-
ulr season a week from Satur-
day, competing in the EMU Open.
Key meets this season are the
Notre Dame Invitational and the
Wolverines' lone home meet Octo-
ber 28 against Minnesota, a tra-
ditional Big Ten power.
After the Minnesota meet, Coach
Farmer and his squad should
know how great a bid they can
make in the Big Ten Champion-
ships the following week at Iowa.
A Big Ten Championship would
be a fitting tribute to Farmer,
who in two short years has revived
cross-country at Michigan and es-
tablished a very respectable eight
meet schedule this season.
To succeed in moving to the
top rung on the Big Ten cross-
country ladder, Farmer needs a
healthy team and constant dedi-
cation from each and every mem-
ber of the, team.
