The physical education program has
been saved from the University's
After two years of uncertainty, the
department will now become the
Division of Physical Education and will

THE FUTURE OF the program was
jeopardized two years ago when it was
targeted for review-and possible
elimination-as a result of the Univer-
sity's five-year plan to reallocate $20
million in general fund monies.
The school was originally slated for a
40 percent cut. Later it was recommen-
ded for a 30 percent cut-or $300,000 of
its $1 million budget.
However, the program has been
given a new lease on life at the Univer-
THROUGH complicated maneuvers,,
the University's administration have
managed to secure the funds which,
were scheduled to have been cut from
the athletic department.
Even though the new Division of
Physical 'Education will technically
receive $300,000 less from the general
fund, it will receive $300,000 from a
special athletic department donation to.

According to Don Canham, the
University's athletic director, the
$300,000 will not harm the University's
sport programs. None of the "lesser

The physical education program has
long been labeled a "back door" into
the University for athletes whose
academic records are too poor to
qualify them for admittance into the
University's other colleges.
It's just stupid to kill the department. If I
thought we could do without it, I would've

According to Dee Edington, the
division chairman, the athletic
department's decision to funnel monies
into the general fund is a fine way to
handle the problem. "Yes, we were
spared to some extent although that is
not quite accurate," he said, adding
that the department took cuts while it
was part of the education school.
EDINGTON SAID the new structure
and money from the athletic depar-
tment has helped the physical
education program's progress. "I think
Although Frye says the program will
be a superior one, Canham said it won't
be different-"they will have the same
profs and all," he said.

Students returning to school this fall
may be surprised when they go to
CRISP to change their schedules: The
long registration lines won't be stret-
ching out on the first floor of Lorch Hall
anymore. They'll be squeezed into the
basement of Angell Hall.
The new CRISP area will not be able
to accommodate more than two appoin-
tment lines at a time. Assistant
registrar Tom Karunas said that in the
future, students should not come any
earlier than 15 minutes before their
assigned registration time.
"STUDENTS have to realize that
there is not enough room for them to
come early to their registration appoin-
tments - there's just no place to line
them up to wait," Karunas said.
Construction began in the middle of
last June at a cost of $95,000. The new
CRISP is located in the southwest cor-
ner of Angell Hall where before there
were the classrooms, the com-
puter and communication sciences
library; and a room which housed
several computer terminals. Walls
were knocked out, doors were per-
manently shut, new doors were in-
stalled, and bars were fastened to the
floor of the basementrto control student
The new office, 300-600 square feet
smaller than the old one, will feature:
" new furniture designed for the com-
puter terminals and operators,
. a small lounge for the CRISP staff,
The long lines and anxious waits at CRISP's Lorch Hall location last year are sure to be repeated this fall when it start
operations in the basement of Angell Hall.
