For the first time in Wolverine
history, the University ofMichi-'

dians of Stanford University to-
' morrow afternoon in Stanford
Stadium at Palo Alto, California.
This meeting against one of the
top teams on the west coast will
give Canham an idea how the 1954,
edition of thinclads will perform
on the outdoor track. However, it
is expected that the Michigan
tracksters will not be in top form
for this meet due to the fact that
they have not had any good

this as he came back in the mile

John Ross will run against one

KRUMBHOLZ, the lone Wol-

National Intramural Association To Convene
At Amherst; Founded in 1950 by 'M' Grad




Going South
Sprint Vacation
A complete assortment
of lightweight suits
and odd jackets

The National Intramural Asso-
ciation, founded and headed by a'
Michigan graduate student, begins
its fifth year of operations this
month, as it holds its annual con-
vention at Amherst College on
April 16th and 17th.
Composed of 20 colleges and
universities, the organization was
founded in the spring of 1950 by
Bill Wasson, a graduate student
here in Physical Education. Slow-
ly growing through its first four
years the organization functions
as a group only two days each
year, but these two days go a long
way in improving the American
Intramural scene,
THE PURPOSE of the Associa-
tion is to promote and improve
intramural sports in American
colleges and high schools, and this
purpose is accomplished at theI
annual meetings where the dele-
gates present and exchange ideas
on intramural sports.
The members gain quite a bit
from these meetings, and when
visiting university administra-
tive officials visit the conven-
tions they susually gain a great
deal of knowledge, which in
turn makes for better relations,
separate IM budgets, and over-
all co-operation.
As of this writing, the associa-
tion is composed of mostly small
schools, such as Amherst, the con-
vention host, North Carolina Col-
lege, Tuskeegee Institute, Morgan

' State College. Howard University,
University of Rhode Island, and
Hampton Institute.
IT IS surprising that Michigan,
with the top intramural set up in
the nation according to Wasson,
is not a member of the associa-
tion, but they have been asked to
join on several occasions.
The main objectives of the or-
ganization at the present is to
membership, mainly centered in
the east and south, is a restric-
tion which must be overcome if
the Association is to achieve a
parallel status to the NCAA,
the governing association of in-
tercollegiate athletics.
One way to do this, according
to Wasson, is to publish a maga-
zine which will contain articles
dealing with the running of In-
tramural programs at the var-
ious colleges. This will increase
interest, and lead to the member-
ship growth which is so -vital to
an organization such as this.
PENN STATE is the only large
school in the association, but this
month four other well known
schools, Colby, Vermon,t Brown,
and Brandeis will enter the group.
In fact, the athletic director of
Brandeis, Prof. Benjamin Fried-
man, better known to Michigan-
ites as "Benny" will deliver one of
the major addresses of the con-
vention. Friedman, one of Michi-
gan's greatest football All-Ameri-

cans, was instrumental in the for-
mation of the IM program at
The personable Wasson, pres-
ently working on his Doctorate
here at Michigan, is also in
charge of the "all-campus" divi-
sion of Michigan's intramural
program. Wasson first conceiv-
ed the idea of an IM association
when working on a physical edu-
cation project here in summer
school and a grant from the
Carnegie Foundation enabled
him to the actually set up the
He established the Association
by sending questionnaires to over
50 schools, and he visited over 25
to study the IM set ups in person.
Wasson, who is married and has
one daughter, thus became the
first president of the organiza-
tion and still holds that position.
HIS PRESENT duties are to ap-
point the heads of the program.
Research. Publicity, and Member-
ship committees, and also preside
over the national convention.
Wasson, who grew up in
Louisville, Kentucky, attended
Louisville University, and later
taught high school in Georgia.
From high school teaching,
Wasson progressed to Dillard
College in New Orleans where
he took over the IMW program.
Later he came to Ann Arbor
for four successive summers to
study under Prof. E. D. Mitchell,
Michigan's Physical Education I
chief. It was this summer session
work that led to the founding of
the association.
Thus Wasson's far reaching ex-
perience will serve as a guide to
the group that he himself found-
ed. It is a group that is growing
bigger and more important with
each succeeding year, and ever im-

... its bound to be Bud.
