Sports facilities
wil be renovated

Good news may be in store for the
legions of racquetball fanatics frus-
trated at the crowded conditions of
University courts.
Additional courts will be a top pri-
ority item when an ad hoc committee
on recreational sports presents an
estimated $600,000 proposal to the
Advisory Committee on Recreation,
Intramurals - and Club S p o r t s
(ACRICS) on Friday.
Michael Stevenson, director of rec-
reational sports, said the six-part
proposal for renovation was prompt-
ed byan "insatiable demand for rec-
THE NEW COURTS are slated for
the Sports Coliseum on Fifth Ave.
and Hill, on order to relieve the strain
on the Central Campus Recreation
Building. Other work on the Coliseum
will include better lighting, weight
and training rooms, a sound system,
golf cages, new paint for the interior
and possibly an outlined track on the
basketball court, Stevenson said. The
estimated cost of this work is
According to Stevenson, second
priority will go to lighting the sixteen
Palmer Field tennis courts as a cost

of about $30,000. Next on the list is
refurbishing the comparatively un-
derused IM building at State and
Hoover to include both a men's and
women's sauna, along with repaint-
ing and carpeting the locker rooms.
Stevenson said this may cost an
additional $30,000.
LESSER PRIORITY proposals in-
clude work on Fuller Field (pending
decision on the placement of the
University's new hospital), six new
tennis courts adjacent to the North
Campus Recreation Building, and
improvement of lighting on East Bell
Field and the basketball courts adja-
cent to East Quad.
Bill Canning, associate director of
recreational sports, said no plans for
funding the improvements have yet
been devised. "But hopefully we can
work out some strategies at the
meeting," he added.
The Ad Hoc Recreation Committee
consists of Thomas Morehead of the
Office of Student Services, students
Jim Jamerson and David Sichel,
Canning, and Stevenson.
IF ACRICS approves the propos-
als, they would then be submitted to
the Office for Academic Affairs
under Vice-President Harold Sha-
piro. Stevenson declined to speculate
on the outcome of Friday's meeting,
but mentioned that the ad hoc
committee includes one-third of the

Stevenson said there is also a need
for long-range expansion of recrea-
tion facilities. Within the term, an
ACRICS committee will be appointed
to study five, ten, and twenty year
plans for indoor and outdoor im-
provements.University planners will

work with the committee.
Because of the recent construction
of the two new recreation buildings
and tight state funds, Stevenson said
any new structures will have to be
financed with student dollars. He
said this could mean an increase in
student recreation fees.
According to Stevenson, if the cost
of future facilities comes'close to the
$7.5 million spent on the Central and
North Campus Recreation buildings,
the fees would have to double from
the current $10 per term. Another
possibility would be to increase the
fee paid by faculty and staff from this
term's $30, he said.

truck kills.
A 65-year-old sanitation worker
was killed yesterday afternoon when
his partner accidentally backed his
garbage truck into him, police said.
Clyde Hakney and Major Ragland
were collecting garbage on Geddes
and Vinewood at 3:22 p.m. yesterday
wh 3n Ragland entered the Geddes
intersection to stop traffic.
ACCORDING TO police reports,
Hakney, who was driving the gar-
bage truck, started backing in order
to turn around. The truck then
knocked Ragland over and ran over
him with the rear wheels.
No tickets or citations were issued
in the bizarre accident. Police said
the case is still under investigation.

septic waste because it might use up
their court-ordered quota on dump-
ing, and because the townships
refuse the cityis sludge.
AT MONDAY night's Council
meeting, Councilman Louis Belcher
(R-Fifth Ward) summed up the
problem: "They (the townships)
could not accept our health from a
health standpoint. If you could give
us some help in getting rid of our
sludge, we can be more than helpful
with (their) septage."
The most viable means of dispos-
ing of Ann Arbor's sludge is mixing
the brown matter with soil in open
fields. Although few such fields are
available inside the city limits, the
neighboring townships have many
prime sites.
The townships don't want the
sludge and claim this is because it
contains too many inorganic wastes,
particularly the chemical PCB. So
far, both Superior and Augusta
townships have refused to take Ann
Arbor's sludge. Other localities have
not shown an interest either.
UNTIL A method to remove the
sludge is found, the city cannot begin
to build its. proposed new sewage
treatment plant. The area's town-
ships will also use the plant.
So the city and the townships have
reached a standoff on sludge and
septic disposal. "They both have a
problem and they seem to be
opposing each other," said Barry
Johnson of the Washtenaw County
heath office. "The townships have
land where the sludge can be worked
into the soil."
Meanwhile, the problem of what to
do with the septic waste continues to
grow worse, especially with the
coming of spring, the peak season for
septic waste.
"The problem is, we don't have a
place to dispose of it," Johnson said.
"And we're approaching the critical
period rapidly."
Continued from Pagel)
tivities Center (UAC) president, who
has been studying new possibilities for
increased student space activity since
the campus-wide controversy over the
razing of Waterman-Barbour Gym-
nasium a year ago, said, "We expect it
to happen and would be pretty sur-
prised if it didn't." Carnevale added
that now is the "'ideal time" for a
student center.
In a memo summarizing the views of
the faculty's Senate Assembly Commit-
tee on University Affairs (SACUA),
Education Professor Charles Lehmann
said SACUA is "at the moment
agreeably disposed to student
initiatives for change in the
management, governance and physical
appearance of the Michigan Union."

Lehmann also noted that professors
support a faculty club. "of some sort,"
but that that doesn't necessarily mean
