Today's Column Was Written By R1OG GOELZ
The University officials have taken it upon themselves to become
the self-appointed guardians of some twenty thousand students.
They have already decided that it is not permissable for its Joe
College's and Betty Co-ed's to think politically, and now have seen
fit to set up a system of tennis court allocations which they claim is in
the better interests of the innocent youths of Ann Arbor.
Of course it is not necessary to point out that the students
were not permitted to assist in the formation of this plan, or, were
they allowed to help in its execution.
Heretofore, however, there had been no fee levied against the
students for participation in extra-curricular activities.
But now, in the better interests of the students, the athletic de-
partment has decided that a plan whereby the children kick in two-
bits to the already overflowing athletic treasury will give them a better
chance to play tennis.
They reached that decision, overlooking the fact that numer-
ous city courts have operated on a smaller budge$ than that
granted to the I-M department and still have been able to see
that everyone plays.
Surprisingly enough the city courts do it with the aid of attendants
Who also are paid. However they don't have a car to patrol the field.
Now the athletic director would have us believe that one will
have to wait hours for a chance to play unless he pays twenty-five
cents for the service of an attendant who can chase people who require
more than an'hour to play a three set match.
The Daily, having already suggested one plan that would at
least keep up the pretense of the late Fielding H. Yost's dream of
athletics for every student at no cost to the individual, would
like to offer another one.
The University could take the money that would go to the at-
tendants and build a few more courts, but then that would be the
result of student thinking and might hurt the ego of the officials who
pride themselves on knowing what is best for its children.
