Varied Program

Building Used,
By More Than
800 Each day
Idea Of 'Athletics For All'
Is Emphasized; 2,500
Lockers Are Available
Taking advantage of the unusual
facilities offered, an average of 800
men students use the Intramural
Building every day, it has been esti-
mated. -The building, the first of its
size and completeness to be built in
the country, has' served as a model
for other buildings' at other cam-
puses and is still regarded as one of
Glhe finest of its kind.
About 400 men use the building on
slack days, Intramural officials say,
The Intramural Building is ordi-
narily open for activities from 8
a.m. to 6 p.m., and the swimming
pool from 3 to 5:30 p.m. daily.
However during the more inclem-
ent weather of the late fall and
winter seasons, the hours are ex-
tended so that the building is
open until 10 p.m. and the pool
from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Time for
showers is given in the spring,
the building usually closing at
8 p.m.
that ,on iugy days, especially in the
wnter, as many as 1,200 to 1,500 may
take part in activities going on. The
building is for all men students on
the campus, to use whenever they like
and in whatever activity they like.
SMen may come down informally or
nay come to take part in the or-
ganized programs.
Facilities of the building include
the largest gymnasium in the world,
where are located four basketball
courts. Basketball, indoor tennis,
volleyball and badminton are the fa-
vorite games played here. Different
times are assigned for the various
sports.
A swimming pool which was the
scene of the National Intercollegiate
Championships last spring is located
in the east wing. This pool is the
scene of all varsity competition and
is open during the day to any stu-
dent who wishes to swim. A cork-
li ed wall can be raised between the
pool and the adjoining auxiliary gym
to provide space for bleachers at
meets.
Activities that can be enjoyed in
the auxiliary gym include gymnastics
of all types, fencing, badminton,
volleyball and other indoor minor
sports. It is the favorite of those
who are interested in individual form
of recreation.
Beow 4the large gym are to be
found 14 handball courts and 13
squash courts. Besides providing for
the many enthusiasts of these sports,
codeball, necatos and similar games
can be played here. Table tennis
facilities are located near-by. On
the east wing of the building are
found a wrestling room and a boxing
room, under thesupervision of Mar-
tin Levandowski.
Also included in the facilities of
the plant are 2,500 lockers which can
be rented for the year for $2.50 with
a 50 cent refund, and a first aid and
training room. V'arsity athletes
make most use of the latter, but it is
available to any interested in "re-
ducing" or building up.
Outside the building itself the de-
partment makes use of the Universi-
ty golf course, a championship course
offered mainly for the University
community; 38 tennis courts on Ferry
Field; the Coliseum for ice skating
fans; south Ferry Field .for touch

Health Building
BeingErected
Largest And Most Complete
Unit Of Its Kind
Now under construction, and sched-
uled to be completed during the year
is a new Health Service building
which will be one of the largest and
most complete units of its kind in
the country.
The new unit, located on Twelfth
Street, next to the Dental Building
addition and across from the Michi-
gan League, will be four stories high
and will house all of the Health
Service facilities.
The basement will house kitchen
and like services, while the first floor
will be chiefly occupied by a nurses
treating room, a lecture room, phar-
macy and the business and adminis-
trative offices.
Special services, such as X-ray,
dentistry, eye, ear, nose and throat
specialists, allergy and mental hy-
giene sections and laboratoric..
The infirmary will occupy the third
floor of the new building, and 60
beds, mostly in privte one-to-two
bed. rooms, will be provided. The
fourth floor will not be completed
this year, but space has been provid-
ed there for doctors' and orderlies'
rooms, a lounge for patients and a
sun deck.
Pacific Track Supremacy
Reasons Told By Coach
Pavorable weather and a popular
interest in track are leading factors
in the national supremacy of track'
teams from the Pacific Coast, accord-
ing to Coach Ken Doherty. He point-
ed to the fact that the largest crowd
to view a track meet outside of the
Olympics watched the last National
Collegiate meet at Los Angeles.

Intramural Pool Is One Of The Best

One of the most beautiful pools in the country is the Intramural
pool, whose green tiles and cork-lined walls reflect themselves in the
color of the water. It is the scene of all Michigan home dual meets and
last year was the pool in which they National Collegiate meet was held.
One of the features is the north wall, which can be raised by power-
ful machinery to form a single room of the pool and adjoining auxiliary
gym.

Is Carried On
Throu h Year
Team Competitions Held
Between Fraternities,
IndependentGroups
Besides extending its facilities daily
for informal use in every type of
sport, the Intramural department
carries on an extensive official pro-
gram in the various sports that
draws, in some sport or another,
practically every man in the Univer-
sity.
Team competitions are held in
speedball, touch football, squash,
handball, hockey, basketball, bowl-
ing, tennis, golf, swimming, foul
shooting, wrestling, relays, volley-
ball, track, baseball, horseshoes and
other 'team sports. Individual tour-
neys to determine the all-campus
champions in the individual sports
are also held in many events.
Individuals can enter tournaments
by signing up at the Intramural
Building at the call for entries to
each tourney. Teams are organized
by managers. Anyone who can col-
lect a team can enter it in the inde-
pendent tournaments, while the fra-
ternities select their own house
leaders.
To participate in any of the tour-
naments or team events, any man is
eligible except, in general, Varsity
letter-winners in .a sport. Varsity
squad members may not compete in
any sport going on during the season

freshman squad members may not
participate in their own sport. Other
restrictions are applied concerning
listing with a team and formal recog-
nition of fraternity status.

ice are required before participation
