Hunt appointed women's AD

By RICH LERNER
Dr. Virginia hunt has been named the
new director of women's intercollegiate
aathletics at Michigan. Ilunt replaces
Marie Hartwig, who became the first
women's athletic director in 1973 and is
retiring after 50 years of association
with women's athletics and the physical
education program at the University.
Hunt was director of athletics for both
men and women at Wooster College in
Ohio in 1973-74. She snent the last year
finishing her doctorate at North Caro-
lina-Greensboro.
A GRADUATE of Iowa, IInt taught
at Oberlin College before going to Woo-
ster, where she also coached field hoc-
key, basketball. and volleyball. She is
the chairwoman-elect of the national
board of woman officials.
"I think this is a crucial time in de-

termining the direction women's ath-
letics will take," Hunt said. "Michigan
has been a leader in men's athletics and
I would hope the women's athletics pro-
gram would assume a similar role."
"I have not had that much opportunity
to evaluate the program which is neces-
sary before I establish some long-range
goals. Philosophically, everybody is
aware that women are getting more and
more involved in competitive sports and
enjoying it for the same reasons as the
men. It's not alwaays the desire to win
bt the desire to achieve excellence.
Simebody's got to come out a loser
e-erv time, but both teams can still
strive to achieve excellence.
"THE MICHIGAN women's varsity
program has been in existence for sev-
er-il years, but it has not been as ex-
tensive as it could be. It's a great oppor-

tunity for me to work in expanding the
program.
"I think the number of sports that are
avaailable right now at Michigan prob-
ably needs to be expanded.-However I
would hate to see any decrease in the
existing program because of expansion,"
Hint said.
Specifically, Hunt mentioned promot-
ing golf and track to the varsity status.
"We're looking to get them into the
Varsity program. I'm hoping to get them
started as soon as we see a demand
and a response for the program from
the stidents," she said.
HUNT, WHO wrote her doctoral dis-
sertation on the history of the Associa-
tion of Intercollegiate Athletics for Wo-
men, thinks the Title IX doctrine that
has triggered, to some degree, the
growth of wotnen's inter-collegiate ath-

letics may have hurt the cause more
than it helped.
"Title IX was a terrific blow to wo-
men's athletic programs. It hasn't al-
lowed people to make up their minds
about what they want in their program,"
she said.
As an example, the women's programs
may be forced to recruit in a manner
similar to the men in order to achieve
parity, according to Hunt.
"I'D HATE to see us get to the point
where we only have a select few partici-
pating. I like the "walk-on" idea."
Despite Hunt's dislike for recruiting,
she favors athletic scholarships for wo-
men student-athletes.
"I ant looking forward to the time
when athletic scholarships will be avail-
able - and it will probably be in the not
too distant future."

Twirls four-hitter for
Tigers fourth straight
BALTIMORE -- Dave Roberts stopped Baltimore on four hits
and pitched the Detroit Tigers to a 2-0 victory over the Orioles
last night with the help of Alex Johnson's solo home run.
The surging Tigers have won four in a row, tying their longest
streak of the season, and nine of their last 11. Baltimore has lost
four straight and seven of its last 10.
Detroit's Rusty Staub, the only baserunner for either team
through the first three innings, rapped his second single of the
game with one out in the fourth and then scored an unearned
run.
Staub moved to second on a fielding error by shortstop Mark
Belanger and both runners advanced when Jason Thompson
grounded out. A wild pitch by loser Rudy May, S-5, allowed
Staub to score.
Tribe trips Yankees
Cl EVELAND 0) - Rick Manning tripled home the eventual
winning run in the seventh inning as the streaking Cleveland
Indians handed the New York Yankees their straight loss,
3-2, last night.
Ex-Yankee Pat Dobson, with relief help from Dave LaRoche
and Jim Kern, became the first 10-game winner in the American
League as the Indians grabbed their third straight victory and
moved within six games of the first-place Yankees in the
American League East. It was the seventh straight victory
for Dobson, who has lost five times.

Joseph E. Carrico of Chicago, a vice president
of the U. S. Tennis Association and chairman of
the U. S. Davis Cup Committee, told a news con-
ference, "Governments have been making deci-
sions about scho plays tennis. We think this is
repugnant."
THE BREAKING poin~t came over the issue of
some countries refusing to play South Africa.
The United States put two similar resolutions
before the annual meeting of the Davis Cup Com-
mittee imposing suspensions from the competi-
tion for one or more years on countries with-
drawing because of political interference or gov-
ernment action.

ed. After the vote, this decision was confirmed.
The future of the Davis Cup as a major com-
petition was left in doubt. The draw for the 1977
tournament will be held Saturday, without par-
ticipation by the United States, Britain and
France. Carrico said "I would guess that other
nations might follow" the United States' lead-
WHEN NEWSMEN asked Carrico if it might
not be better to stay in the organization and try
to change it, he replied, "We are tired of the
fight. A substantial number of the representa-
tives there do not know a tennis ball from a golf
ball. They are there to vote as their govern-
ments tell them."
