Football in this country, I want to be
sitting at the table. "
-Michigan Athletic Director
Don Canham
To listen to Canham talk atout the

conflict between the National
Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)
and the College Football Association
(CFA), one gets the impression that the
issue has the potential to revolutionize
intercollegiate athletics.
/ The 61-member CFA, which includes
most of the major football conferences
and independents, does not include
either the Big Ten or Pacific Ten Con-

821ST SQUADRON 11, FLYING KITES 0: Leading the way for the 821st
Squadron in its easy victory over the Flying Kites were Paul Alcala and Ron
Hodess. Both players hit a double and a home run.
WARRIORS 7, DAILY LIBELS 5: The Warriors exploded for all seven of
their runs in the third inning, with five extra base hits serving as the telling
blows. Included in the seven-run inning was a home run by Lyle Townsend.
, LAW GOLD 16, SUPPER UPPERS 15: The Law Gold rallied to score eight
runs in the bottom half of the final inning when 12 consecutive batters got on
MICHIGAN HOUSE 'A' 27, REEVES 'B' 3: This game was officially a
resident hall contest, but it ended up being a home run derby. Jeff Taylor,
Dave Smith, Ken Shields, Mike Beer and Rich Wiskol all clouted four
baggers. Michigan House had 25 hits, 11 of which were for extra bases.
BURSLEY BRUINS 18, WQ WILLIAMS HOUSE 16: This ball game was
one that Williams House seemingly had won, only to let it get away. After
four innings, Williams House had a very comfortable 10-2 led. A nine-run
fifth inning for Bursley put them within striking distance. In the seventh in-
ning, Bursley finally cpught and passed Williams House on the scoreboard
by tallying seven more runs.
TOO HOT TO HANDLE 7, 3RD LEWIS 6: For 3rd Lewis, their opponents'
bats really were "too hot to handle." The winners battered the 3rd Lewis pit-
ching for five home runs, three of which came off the bat of second baseman
Mike Kinney. Andy Lasky and John Westra hit the other two round trippers
for Too Hot to Handle.

WHILE CANHAM "can't think of
any" disadvantages of the CFA,
University President Harold Shapiro
claims to "not have a completely
coherent set of views" on the issue,
even after speaking with the Athletic
Director last week about that very sub-
ject. Shapiro doesn't "believe right now
that it would be in the best interests of
either Michigan or NCAA football to
follow the road of the CFA."
Shapiro's claim that the CFA is only
"a road of promises" seems to con-
tradict the past record of the CFA. Ac-
cording to Elaine Donahue, a CFA ad-
ministrative assistant, the CFA has had
two of its proposals, an academic
progress rule and a recruiting calen-
dar, adopted by the NCAA already in an
attempt to "demonstrate a quality of
intercollegiate football and get rid of its
exploitations." 1

mission and its opporition to freshmen
"HOW CAN YOU justify a kid going
to school.. . while he isn't even enrolled
in school? It's just academically not
sound. The CFA wanted to rescind that,
and we do too. But the small schools
voted (otherwise). The same thing is
true with a C average. What does a C
average mean?"
Dave Cawood, the public relations
director of the NCAA, acknowledges
that while "Michigan is one institution
that could gain an extra television ap-
pearance over a two year period, it
might not mean money, since the NCAA
pays for transportation for any athlete
that qualifies for an NCAA champion-
ship, as well as providing many other
services that the CFA might not
Evenif the Big Ten Conference
refuses to join the CFA, Canham
acknowledges that Michigan still might
consider joining independently. Accor-
ding to Canham, "There are several
other Big Ten schools that want to join,
end the reason they haven't joined as a
group is because they wanted a
unanimous vote and they couldn't get
Whether Michigan joins the CFA will
depend largely on the outcome of the
organization's special convention
called for December 4, 5, and 6 in St.
Louis. Until then, Canham feels that
"everything's in limbo. "
