TODAY, KIDDIES, let us take up the report, not Kinsey's, but Cris-
ler's annual financial statement.
The gist of the statement is "We need help from somewhere if
we are to build," and even if we are making money now, there are cer-
tain trends which are causing the Athletic Administration serious
The report cites that operating costs have soared about 33 per
cent. It goes on to say that we won't make as much next year since we
have one less football game while costs will continue to rise.
Aside from the implication that the rising cost spiral is going
to continue indefinitely, there is nothing too controversial in that
section of the report. But it goes on to worry about "the spector
of a few bad seasons, with the reduced receipts. .. and the finan-
cial outlook for the future is anything but encouraging."
With the prospects for the next year's football team as rosy as
they are now, the last statement is a little incongruous.
THE NEXT STATEMENT is not. "It is difficult to see how the sut'
plus that can be anticipated in future years can meet these in-
creasing costs and at the same time finance the necessary plant ex-
And the entire Administration policy should be based on that
realization from now on. There is one irrefutable fact. 1. We can't
build on our own earnings and we can build only if we get financial
aid from somewhere else.
The only logical course is to divorce the building program
from the regular Athletic Administrative program. That done, the
football earnings plus $129,039.31 allocated to the Athletic Admin-
istration out -of tuitions (an item listed in the statement of re-
ceipts, but not nimntioned in the body of the report) would be
more than enough to take care of the entire year's disbursements,
this year it was $204,870.37 more.
With, that much of an excess some of the charges to students
could and should be eliminated or substantially reduced.

Against Titans
While Jove Pluvius supplied the
liquid, Michigan's golfers did the
liquidating yesterday as they
swamped Detroit 24-3 on the
soggy University Course.
Ken Berke led the Wolverine
amphibs to their seventh straight
win against a pair of losses by
touring the water coaked layout
in 76 strokes.
His fine round brought him
three points in individual play and
with Tom Messinger adding an
84 the duo's combined effort was
good enough to whitewash the Ti-
tans in best ball 3-0.

AFTER ADMITTING that building is impossible on our income, the
tennis fees can be completely eliminated. Students contributed a
net profit of more than $14,000 on the golf course last year. Towel and
locker fees in the I-M and Waterman gyms brought in another eight
thousand and again that is too much.
Those profits ae at the expense of the student body. And the
student body is not financially able to finance a building pro-
The counter proposal to the plea for outside assistance is a
thinly veiled threat to charge students for Michigan gootball games.
It might be in the report to dramatize the need for aid from the Re-
gents. If it is being seriously considered, the Student body should
begin an organized resistance right now.
If we are going to be expected to pay for football, to supply the
athletes and the money, then the hell with it. The University might
as well call the team, "The Michigan Football Club," and stop pre-
tending that it represents the whole campus. Or just drop the whole
thing. Chicago gets along.

Schalon took .78 strokes in earn-
ing his trio of individuals points
while a fifteen foot putt for a
birdie on the 18th gave Cutler an
even 80 plus three points for his
Chuck MacCallum and Mort
Cohn posted an 83 and 79 respect-
ively to rack up Michigan's last
81/2 points. Detroit's Dave Turner
shooting an 86 squeezed out % a
point from MacCallum to save
the Titan pair from a shut-out.
The win sends the Wolverines
off on the right foot as they take
to the road for matches with Illi-
nois and Notre Dame.

Michigan State's baseball team
pushed across four runs in the
second inning to defeat Michigan
7-3 in an abbreviated seven inning
game played at Ferry Field yes-
State pounded three Wolverine
hurlers for ten hits but won the
games when Howie Wikel, Mich-
igan shortstop, found the sloppy
playing conditions too much to
cope with in the fateful second
Morrison Out
A walk and two doubles had
scored two runs when Wikel made
a fine stop back of second on
Pavlick's sharp smash, but his
throw to first was late.
Spartan pitcher Dieters then
walked to fill the bases and send
Pat Morrison, Coach Fisher's
starter and losing pitcher, to the
showers. Bud Rankin here re-
placed him on the mound.
Peppler, State outfielder, then
popped into short left field. It
would have been an easy catch
for Morrison, coming in, but Wi-
kel attempted the catch going
away from the diamond, dropped
it and the deciding run scored for
Kobs' nine. Another run scored on
Urbanik's fly to Elliott a moment
Block Effective
The clutch pitching of Lou
Block, Spartan reliefer, turned
back the Wolverines on three oc-
casions. Twice double plays broke
up rallies and the game ended in
the seventh when Dom Tomasi
popped with the bases packed and
rain pouring down.
Wikel led Michigan hitting with
three singles and a walk. The be'-
spectacled shortstop singled to
right in the opening frame to give
the Wolverines a short lived lead.
Kobrin scored on the hit but
Weisenburger was thrown out at
the plate when he tried to take
advantage of Bechard's bobble in
right field.
Double lays Hurt
Michigan State's Block, winning
pitcher, put the skids on Michigan
at the most opportune times.
With the bases loaded in the sec-
ond Elliott hit into a double play.
Two runners were left stranded
again in the fourth when Hal
Raymond hit into a twin killing.
Michigan scored twice in the
fifth when Elliott's triple to left
center followed by two walks load-
ed the bases for Wikel. Howie
singled to left to score Elliott and
State tallied twice in their fifth
on three infield hits, a walk and
error. One of the hits resulted
when Wikel fell on his face after
fielding a ground ball back of
second. Wikel slipped in the mud
I-M News
It is interesting to note that the
four houses leading the Residence
Hall sports competition also lead
in the number of men participat-
ing in intramural sports. Lloyd
House is on top with 156 men out.
Greene House follows with 108,
then Michigan House with 96, and
Winchell with 95.
Thirty-one men are entered in

Ohio State's amazing track
team, fresh from an overwhelming
victory . over Michigan State's
powerful Spartans, will invade
Ferry Field Saturday to tangle
with the Michigan thinclads in
what promises to be a preview of
the Western Conference title
chase to be held at Madison, Wis-
consin later this month.
Great Team
Although the Wolverines are re-
garded as the chief contender to
Buckeye supremacy on the confer-
ence cinder paths, Ken Doherty's
squad faces an almost hopeless
task in trying to overcome the
boys from Columbus in the dual

Bolstered by six former Big
Nine title holders, and two former
national champions, the Bucks
will present what Coach Doherty
calls, "the greatest track team
ever assembled in the Western
Conference," and while. the Wol-
verines will capture their share of
individual blue-ribbons, the over-
all team balance'of the Ohio squad
should allow them to take the
meet by a comfortable margin.
Leading the Buckeye parade will
be the incomparable Lloyd Duff,
holder of three Conference in-
door crowns. Duff, who gets bet-
ter with age, is a cinch to capture
the broad-jump which he won at
East Lansing last week with a 24

foot 10 7/8 inch performance; and
the high hurdles which he can
handle in :13.7 in a pinch.
He is also a good bet to take the
pole vault with a leap of some-
where in the neighborhood of 13
feet 10 inches, and then he may
make it a grand slam in the low
hurdles if he can outfoot team-
mate Lloyd Maxwell. Maxwell
turned in a :23.4 effort last week
to nip Duff by a mere tenth of a
second-while Duff's :23.5 waas
good enough to tie Michigan's var-
sity record.
Strong in Quarter
In the 440, the Buckeyes will
throw a three man field of Harry
Cogswell (indoor title-holder), Ed
Porter, and Russ Owens at the
Wolverines, and Val Johnson will
have to tour the course in some-
thing under 49 seconds to stay up
with the Red and Gray trio.
In the track events, the Ohio
State crew will face its stiffest
competition in the middle dis-
tances. Herb Barten, Big Nine mile
and half-mile champion will car-
ry the load for Michigan, but even
he will have to go all out to top
the Buck's two former national
880 kings, Mal Whitfield and Bill
Clifford. Whitfield is capable of a
1:50.9 half, and Clifford who may
start only in the mile can cruise
the distance in something under
Fred Johnson will pace the
State dashmen. With a :09.9 100
and a :22 flat 220 to his credit in
last week's meet, he looks like a
shoo-in in the century and once
again Val Johnson will have to
press all the way to keep up with
him in the longer sprint.
Don Washington and Ed Mead-
ows will handle the two mile chore
for Ohio State and probably will
run one-two.
Bright spot for the Wolverines,
along with Barten's middle dis-
tance monopoly, is the shot-put
with Fonville and Dendrinas.
All in all, it looks like a dreary
time for the Wolverines, who will
probably spend the day trying to
keep the Buckeyes within shout-
ing distance.
Inter-Guild Softball
Only one contest was played in
the Inter-Guild softball league
this week.
The Presbyterian Guild tasted
their first defeat by bowing 10-9 to
the Lutheran Student Association.
All Guild teams have now been
beaten at least once.
Saturday's schedule pits the
Congregationalists against the
Lutheran Student Association and
the Presbyterians against the Lu-
theran Chapel.
