Tourney by Two Strokes
Match Play Plan Will Divide Contestants
Among Four Competitive Flight Divisions
An opening hole eagle provided the
two stroke victory margin that en-
abled Robert Busler, Kansas City,
Mo., to take top honors in the All-
Campus Medal Play Tourney with a
highly respectable 75.
Busier, the 1940 Kansas City golf
champion, stroked his way out in a
neat par 36 and came home with a
39 to finish two strokes in front of
Doug Beath and William Powers who
tied at 77.
The scores of Saturday's tourney
will be used to divide the huge medal
play field into four flights for match
play. Under a plan designed to en-
able players to compete with op-
ponents of relatively equal ability,
the field has been divided into the
Championship, Wolverine, Maize,
and Blue flights.
The eight low scorers will com-
pete 'in the Championship flight
with the rest of the field being di-
vided among the other three divi-

FOR THE RECORD*
By JACK MARTIN, Daily Sports Editor
THE ALUMNAE OF ANN ARBOR, one of the largest and most faithful
contingents of graduates representing any American college, have spread
the fame of the University of Michigan to every nook and cranny of the
United States, and to many a foreign shore as well, and students, from the
moment they hit the campus, are steeped in the lore of years of tradition.
One of the earliest facts that bewildered freshmen become aware of
is that.Michigan has an athletic record. And all through their scholastic
career this awareness is drilled into them until it becomes habit to say that
Michigan has one of the greatest athletic reputations in the country and
will continue to have one. Our athletic plant, we say, with its Sports Build-
ing, its Yost Field House, its Millionaire Stadium, is nowhere surpassed.
Yes, we congratulate ourselves, as far as sports go, Michigan is tops.
BUT IS IT?
In an article which appeared in The Daily last week about Abd Tra-
boulsi, the athletic director ,of the American University of Beirut, there is
one particular paragraph which reads: "The basis of (the Beirut) intramur-
al work is a system of required participation in sports. A failure will auto-
matically make (the student) inelligible to continue in school."
In other words, a Beirut student has to pass athletics to graduate
just as a Michigan student must pass English 1. That fact provides
food for a little thought. It would seem, since our country is admittedly
the most sports-minded place on earth, that our schools would place
athletics on the highest level of importance. And on the surface they
do. Nowhere else is there such a system of inter-ollegiate varsity com-
But look under the surface. Estimating a list of participation in var-
sity sports at Michigan, we see a picture like this: 70 men in football, 40
in track, 35 in baseball, 25 in swimming, 20 in basketball, 15 in wrestling, 15
in hockey, 10 in tennis, 10 in golf. Add a few just to overcome argument
and you have a total of certainly not more than 250 men who are continu-
ously active in varsity sports.
Now, the experts figure on a 17,000 enrollment here next Fall. About
4.0,000 will probably be men. Of these, 6,000 will be veterans, who had?
physical training in the service, leaving a total of 4,000 non-veteran men.
About half of the 250 varsity participants will be vets, leaving 125 non-
veterans engaged in competition. WHAT, IN THE WAY OF PHYSICAL
TRAINING, WILL THE OTHER 3.875 DO?
A LITTLE RESEARCH reveals some interesting answers to that question.
It puts Michigan in a rather unfavorable light. In the Big Ten circle,
for example, Illinois, Minnesota, Ohio State, and Iowa all give credit toward
graduation for physical activity courses. Michigan does not. Illinois, Iowa,
and Northwestern have a minimum requirement for graduation of two years
in physical education. Michigan requires but one.
And there is a pessimistic story behind even the one year. During
the war years, when students, in or out of service, should have been
developing themselves physically if at any time at all, an average of
50 per cent of the men were excused from taking any form of physical
A recent survey showed that roughly 70 per cent of American uni-
versities gave credit for athletic courses, while the majority had a mini-
mum requirement of two years of physical education. Michigan, in other
words, is in the lowest ranks when it comes to basic physical activity for
Education is the prime mission of colleges, yes. But is the intellectual
cry that athletics are therefore a nuisance warranted? Columbia Univer-
sity, whose educational excellence is not disputed, requires two years of
athletic courses-and gives credit for them.
Michigan needs a more comprehensive intramural athletic pro-
gram;. The fault for the present deficiency does not rest on the athletic
directors. It rests rather on the singular lack of cooperation between
the academic and the athletic groups of the University. Many simply do
not realize the importance of physical development. A man cannot
get the fullest measure of life, even though he have the brilliance of an
Einstein or Shakespeare, unless he has the physical health with which
to enjoy it.

ST. LOUIS, July 16--(P)-Mana-

League that he had been suspended

when Barlick ruled that a low liner

by Dodger left fielder, Pete Reiser.
