A th letes cheer for
Wolverine warm -ups

By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
University students may not win any
fashion awards for their sports attire,
but no one can accuse them of
disloyalty.
Whether it be a T-shirt, a pair of
shorts or a baseball cap, many budding
Wolverines apparently feel that spor-
tswear looks better with the school
colors or name stitched across it.
"MICHIGAN ITEMS are really
popular among students," said Rosalie
Hudnut, manager of Moe's Sport Shop
on North University.
Among the more popular Wolverine
sports apparel worn on campus is a
"jogging sweatshirt"-a gray sweat-
shirt with a dark blue collar, maize and
blue rings around the right arm, and
the U-M logo emblazoned on the upper
left-hand corner.
"The jogging sweatshirt is popular
because students can wear it not only to
do sports in. but it also looks good

outfit for evening wear.

enough to wear around regularly," said
Frank Pennisi, an employee at Moe's.
"WE JUST CAN'T keep them in,"
Hudnut added.
With jogging increasing in popularity
on campus, a quick check of Huron
Parkway, Geddes Road, or any of the
area running routes revealed that
student runners prefer comfort over
glamour in their jogging outfits.
"We sell a lot of the good old
drawstring sweatpants and hooded
sweatshirts to students," Hudnut said.
"The townspeople are really the only
ones who buy the expensive sweats."
WITH MOST STUDENTS on a tight
budget, cheap but comfortable spor-
tswear is the order of the day. Basket-
ball and racquetball enthusiasts
generally wear a pair of cotton shorts,
although some choose to wear cut-off
blue jeans, an old T-shirt, socks, and
gym shoes. Compared to the attire of
the rest of the body, the feet get first-
class treatment.
"Students still come in and askbfor
the good old traditional black or blue
Converse basketball shoes," Hudnut
said. In addition to Converse, Adidas,

Puma, and Nike are also popular
among student athletes.
BUT A PAIR of good-looking feet is
not the only reason student athletes
want quality shoes. "You could really
mess up your feet or your knees if you
wear cheap gym shoes," explained
Chris Eads, an employee at the Central
Campus Recreational Building. "You
won't hurt yourself if you wear good
shoes."

The ranks of student swimmers on
campus are growing, too, with the
weekend Mark Spitzes and Shirley
Babashoffs of the University appearing
to be just as careful in the selection of
their swimsuits as Wilt Chamberlain is
of his gym shoes. At the pools on cam-
pus, for instance, most swimmers spot-
ted were donned in stylish suits.
"We sell a lot of nylon swimsuits to
students," said Pennisi. "Swimming
seems to be really popular with them."
