This University is one of the few
large educational institutions in this
country which cannot be accused of
over-emphasizing intercollegiate ath-
letics at the expense of intramural
sports and which can undoubtedly
boast one of the finest "athletics for
all" programs in the United States.
According-to Elmer D. Mitchell, di-
rector of Intramural athletics here,
more than 300,000 students use the f a-
cilities of the huge new Intramural
fSports Building, erected in 1928,
during the course of a school year.
and on an average of 1,000 to 15,000
use the building every day.
70 Per Cent Competes
Mitchell said that 7,500 men stu-
dents in the University enrolled in
some form of competitive intramural
sport during the school year,
which is approximately 70 per cent
of the student body, while 5,000 more
were registered in more informal
types of contests.
A total of 32 sports are offered
the students and the entire intra-
mural program at Michigan is whollyt
supported, with the exception of the
instructor's salaries, by proceeds col-
lected from intercollegiate football
games. The salaries of teachers and
instructors in the department are
paid from, the University budget.
The football season shows a large
profit after every season, and
according to Mitchell, a good share
of this money goes for the mainten-
ance of indoor and outdoor intramural
athletic programs.
Field House Erected
The erection of Yost Field House
in 1924; dedicated to the real "Grand
Old Man" of Michigan Athletics,
Fielding H. Yost, gave great impetus
to the intramural sports program by
removing all varsity practices and
games from Waterman gymnasium,
which building was at that time the
focal point for all indoor intramural
An even greater boon to the "ath-
letics for all" program, was the erec-
tion of the huge Intramural Sports
Housing almost every conceivable
type of facility for the advancement
of intramural sports, the erection
of this building, of course greatly fa-
cilitated the program in a number
of sports which heretofore had been
partially neglected on the sports pro-
gram because of inadequate facilities.
Chief among the new additions
were: swimming, basketball, boxing,
wrestling, handball, squash, indoor

Courses Given
By Doctor May
Dr. G. A. May, director of Water-
man Gymnasium, announced that he
would conduct his customary courses
in Waterman Gymnasium during the
coming Summer Session, and that the
gymnasium would be open for vol-
untary work every afternoon.
Two courses are being offered to
high school coaches this summer by
Dr. May. One course, known as the
Theory and Practice course, will con-
sist of instruction in marching, calis-

thenics, and gymnastics and will be
mainly a practice course with but
little theory involved. The second
course, known as the Preventive and
Corrective course, will be composed
of almost all theory work. The psy-
chological methods of teaching phys-

The erection of the Intramural Sports building is the outstanding event in the history of the Istramural
Department. The greatly enlarged facilities that it offered made it possible to expand the I-M program until
now the University of 'Michigan boasts the largest Intramural athletic plant in the world.
The main gymnasium, on which floor there are four basketball courts, is 252 feet long and 107 feet wide.
The building includes 14 four-walled handball courts, 13 squash courts, a wrestling room, a boxing room, the
swimming pool, 75 feet long by 35 feet wide, and the auxiliary gymnasium 96 feet long by 45 feet wide. The
wall between the auxiliary gym and the swimming pool is provided with lifts which raise it out of sight and
bleachers seating 1,500 can be set up for the swimming meets.
Charlie Hoyt To Teach Conditioning
TrainingFor. Track And Field Men

Sportminded students as well as
those interested in physical educa-
tion will find the University. well
prepared to meet their needs during
the Summer Session this year. A
definite program is planned that
will provide both men and women'
with facilities for exercise, in addi-
tion to the courses in instruction in
the various sporting fields.
Most of the coaches of major
sports with the exception of Matt
Mann, who conducts two summer
camps in Canada, will act in the
capacity of instructors in athletic in-
struction classes.
Coach Charlie Hoyt of the Varsity
track team is conducting courses in
track and field athletics and athlet-
ic training and conditioning. Coach
Hoyt who is recognized as one of the
foremost track coaches in the coun
try, and an authority on condition-
ing will pass on his experience of
many years spent in coaching the
Wolverine thinclads to Big Ten

16 Ready To Starta
In Preakness est
BALTIMORE, May 14. - (P) - In-
terest in Saturday's running of the'
Preakness at Pimlico mounted today
in anticipation of the arrival of
Morton L. Schwartz's Bold Venture
-1936 Kentucky Derby winner.
As the 3-year-olds alreadys on the
lot tuned up for the $25,000 event, a
survey revealed a probable field of
16, depending upon the weather.
Stable-talk, for the most part, cen-t
tered on whether Bold Venture can
become the fifth horse in history to
win both Derby and Preakness.
Bold Venture has been working out
in New York for Saturday's engage-
ment, and apparently needed only an
outing to get the feel of the local

with the exception of football and '
basketball which two are covered by
Coaches Harry Kipke and Franklint
C. Cappon respectively.t
The sports treated here are, for the
most part, placed in the minor rankc
in high schools and colleges. The
students enrolled are generaly men-3
tors who combine their coachingr
duties with academic work of one
sort or another. This training, it isY
believed, will help considerably to
elevate the so-called minor sport to£
the superior major rank. Tennis,t
golf, wrestling and swimming aret
major sports at the larger universi-
ties and secondary schools now andt
no doubt they will enjoy that posi-
tion elsewhere soon.
Prepare Sport
Program For
Summer Term'
Comnpetition To Be Held Int
All Activities In WhichI
Interest Is Shown
The Intramural Sports Building will
offer its entire recreational facilities<
this year in every line of sport in
which enough interest is shown to
make paticipation worth while. The1
I.M. program this year is under the
direction of Abram A. James who ex-
pects a large number of students to
take advantage of the activities that
will be presented.
The only team competition that is
scheduled at present is in softball.
Last year the teams consisted of the
following groups: educational re-
search, principals, superintendents,
and teachers.
Competition will also be held in ten-
nis, golf, swimming, horseshoes, ar-
chery, badminton, squash, and hand-
ball if the demand is great enough,
The building will be opened every
day except Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8
p.m. for the benefit of the golfers
and tennis players who wish to take
advantage of the shower facilities.
The pool will be opened from 10:30
a.m. to 12 and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.'
Entry blanks will be posted at the
beginning of the semester to deter-
mine the interest in the respective
sports and the program will de-
pend on the student response to these
blanks. The schedule which will
last for eight weeks isobviously not
as extensive as is that of the reg-
ular school year due to the diminished

IF PRESENT possibilities become
actualities this summer and the
University of Michigan is as well rep-
resented on American Olympic teams
as it has a chance of being, the stag-
ing of the Eleventh Olympiad should
arouse more than a little interest on
this campus.
One Michigan man has already
competed in the winter Olympics,
Walter Bietila, freshman from Ish-
peming, having returned only last
month from Garmisch-Partenkirchen
where he competed as a member of
the United States ski jumping squad.
Jack Kasley, captain-elect of the
swimming team, is probably the only
sure bet to win an Olympic berth but
according to present plans the entire
swimming and track teams will com-
pete in the American trials. Kasley
bettered the accepted world record
for the 200 yard breast stroke twice
during the last season, a feat that
in itself should guarantee him the
trip to Berlin.
CHUCK KOCSIS, for several years
ranking amateur golfer in the De-
troit area and present Michigan cap-
tain, is expected to go after the Na-
tional Amateur championship during
the summer as well as the National
Open title. Another ex-Wolverine
golf star Johnny Fischer who for two
years has been selected on the Walker
Cup team, will also be a serious
threat in the Amateur and with Law-
son Little playing the pro ranks he
may be able to advance into the last
rounds of the meet.
The Michigan State Open will be
held at Jackson in the middle of July
and Kocsis may also play for that
crown. Woody Malloy, at present
No. 2 man on the Michigan team, is
also expected to enter that meet.
W ITH MICHIGAN'S baseball team
now occupying the top rung in
the Big Ten standings there appears
the possibility that Coach Ray Fisher
may take his squad to Japan this
ummer. The Wolverines played there
in 1929 and again in 1932 and both
years won practically every ball game.
The only team to beat them in both
years, Waseda University, will play
here in Ann Arbor June 1.
Mejii University has its turn to
extend an invitation to an American
team this year and it was this same
school that invited Michigan the
two other times it crossed the
Baseball fans in summer school can
get their fill of the national pastime
at the nearby Navin Field in Detroit
where Mike Cochrane and his Bengals
will be battling for their third straight
pennant. If someone doesn't stop
Col. Jake Ruppert's Yankees and Tom
Yawkey's Red Sox soon the battle
may be in vain, however.

FIVE OUTSTANDING grid tilts are
scheduled for the Michigan Stadi-
um next fall with Michigan State,
Indiana, Columbia, Illinois and_
Northwestern appearing in the role
of Wolverine opponent. On the road-
Michigan will clash with Pennsyl-
vania in a spectacular intersectional
affair and Ohio State and Minne-
sota in Big Ten games.
There has also been some agita-
tion advanced for the selection of the
Stadium as the site of the 1936 Army-
Navy game which has not been played
west of the Atlantic seaboard since
1927. If it is played here it will
probably be the Saturday after
The one taste of football that will
come during the summer will be the
third annual classic between the
country's outstanding professional
team and an All-American eleven
made up only of this year's seniors
picked by popular vote. The Detroit
Lions will handle the pro end-of the
fracas this year instead of the Chi-
cago Bears and the game will be
played in Soldier Field, Chicago,

It is a pretty safe guess that Bill'
Renner, captain of the 1935 Michi-
gan eleven, will be asked to play with
the college aggregation as his bullet
eyes passes could be used by any grid
team. It's also our opinion that
Harry Kipke will be near the top in
the balloting for coaches when this
event comes about in August.

Football Course 1
Will Be Taught
By CoachKipke;
Harry Kipke, Michigan football r
coach, will contribute his bit to the
Summer Session by conducting A
course in football coaching.;
The course will be started with the
opening of Summer School and willt
continue for six weeks. A class ofl
40, comprised mainly of high schoolt
coaches, will meet four times a week'
during the period to listen to Kipke's
instructions on how to get the most
out of his specialty. Starting with
the fundamentals of the game, Kipke
will follow up through the technical
points, especially emphasizing the
duties connected with the quarter-
back position. Several types of of-
fensive play will be reviewed, with the
weaknesses and benefits of each type
being illustrated. Toward the end of
the Session, some of the best plays
used in football will be explained.
In Kipke's opinion, high school
coaches will derive the most benefit
from the school, but many college
coaches will be present to review the
most important aspects of the game.

With Michigan's 1935-'36 inter-
ollegiate athletic program rapidly
trawing to a close, a glance at the
ecord made this year shows that
Volverine teams, while not collect-
ng as many championships as in
ormer years, have demonstrated a
tistinct ability to finish high in Big
en standings.
Coach Harry Kipke's gridiron
nachine registered definite improve-
nent over the 1934 eleven and broke
ven over an eight game schedule with
our wins and the same number of
osses. The team reached its peak in
he Pennsylvania battle which the
Volverines won, 16-6.
Renner Was Star
Indiana, Wisconsin and Columbia
ilso fell before the gridders while
Jichigan State, Illinois, Ohio State
end the Minnesota juggernaut all
chalked up victories over the Wol-
erines. Capt. Bill Renner was the
ucleus of the team and with his
>erfect passing and excellent play
ept Michigan in front in several
)f the games.
On the basketball court the Wol-
rerines flashed a form that reminded
ans of championship days. Paced
y Coach Cappon's own version of the
enowned "Townsend Plan," John
nd Earl Townsend of Indianapolis,
he cage team was a continual con-
ender for the Big Ten , title but
fter losing twice to Purdue and twice
o Indiana, the eventual co-cham-
ions of'the Conference, the Wolver-
nes were forced to occupy third place
n the final standings. John Towns-
nd, although only a sophomore, was
)ractically a unanimous choice for
he All-Conference team and also
inished high in the individual scor-
ng race.
Heyliger Sets Record
The hockey team, led by Capt.
Larry David, was not able to dupli-
ate the record of the 1935 sextet
which won the Big Ten crown, but
did march through a stiff schedule
n formidable fashion.
The outstanding individual feat of
the year was Capt.-Elect Vic Hey-
iger's setting a new season's scoring
record for Michigan players, a mark
of 44 points.
Michigan swimmers, perennial Big
Ten champions, had their reign in-
terrupted this winter when the Uni-
versity of Iowa took the crown by
the bare margin of two points. Coach
Matt Mann's charges came back in
great fashion shortly after, however,
to win another national champion-
ship, their seventh in the last 10 years
- a record envied by swimmers
throughout the country. Jack Kas-
ley, breast stroker, was by far the
outstanding performer of the Wol-
verine aquatic team and lowered the
200-yard world record twice during
the season.
Win 3rd Butler Crown
The great string of track and field
victories that Michigan has accumu-
lated in recent years was continued
this season when Coach.Hoyt's men
beat out Wisconsin for the Big Ten
indoor championship in the Univer-
sity of Chicago field house. The But-
ler Relays title was won the fol-
lowing week for the third successive
