Intramurals face space age
By ENID GOLDMAN .I
After far too many years of
battling the crowds at the an-
tiquated IM building on Hoov-
er Street, students and faculty
will soon be able to pursue their
recreational, intramural, and
club sport interests in two new,
The new IM structures, which
will be ready for use by Sep-
tember 1, 1976, are the only
ones to be built since 1928,
when the University of Michi-
gan dedicated the Hoover
Street edifice as the first intra-
mural building in the country.
WITH THE ADDITION of the
two facilities, now nearing com-
pletion behind Bursley-Baits on
North Campus, and on Central
Campus in the Hill area, the
University of Michigan will
once again have more indoor
recreational space than any
campus in the United States.
"For a few years, until Ohio
SHOWN HERE IS THE NEW Intramural Sports building on North Campus. This facility, as
well as the one being built on Central Campus, will be ready for use by Fall, 1976. The two
buildings make Michigan the leading school in the country in providing indoor recreation for
its students. To help pay for the new facilities, students will be assessed a fee of $10.
State completes its multi-mil-
lion dollar structures, there
won't be anyone in the country
who can match our facilities
area-wise," confirmed Dr. Mi-,
chael Stevenson, Associate Di-
rector of recreational, intra-
mural and club sports.
Students will be assessed a
fee of $10 to help pay for the
new constructions, which will
resemble the Hoover Street IM
building in basic lay-out.
THE CENTRAL CAMPUS
building will feature a multi-
purpose gym floor - lined to
accommodate nine badminton
courts, four basketball courts,
four tennis courts and six vol-
Nine handball / paddleball
courts and three squash courts
have also been constructed with
space available for two addi-
tional handball / paddleball
courts and three squash courts
if funding can be arranged.
A one-eighth mile track, men
and women's locker rooms, a
first aid room, a martial arts
room, offices and physical edu-
cation classrooms, comprise the
rest of the building.
Swimmers will continue to
utilize adjacent 21 - year - old
Margaret Bell Pool.
In all, the new facility will be
slightly larger than the Hoover

North Campus IM buildings is
about $8 million. Most of the $3
