school that does not presently have a
women's track team. Give up? The answer
is the University of Michigan.
Efforts on the part of women in track
to be recognized as a varsity squad have
been futile in the past. Finally, this year
hopes are high and justifiably so, as the
women have again instigated action.
THOSE WHO HAVE suffered the most
because of this are the girls who want to
run track. Amy Goldwater Mills came to
the University of Michigan campus while
she was in high school and specifically
asked about a women's track team. An
athletic official told her that the University

at 105,543 (the stadium and
NCAA record set against Ohio
State last year) when capacity
is 101,701, tends to make people
wonder what's going on.
According to Assistant Ath-
letic Director Charles Harris,
the University sells only 101,-
701 tickets. That leaves almost
4000 people unaccounted for.
Where are they?
Like most schools, Michigan
annonces attendance as total
people in the stadium, not just'
paid attendance. Those extra
4000 include players, visiting
band members, press, photog-
raphers, employes and VIPs.
But no, you are not sharing
your seats with these people, at
least not all of them.
