The proposal will be made to he March 20 meeting of the General Faculties Council by be University Planning Com- mittee. Dr. Jim Day, head of the physical education department ;ajd such a move would be a step backwards. 'We are negative to the pro- posal it would he a poor step .0 take, "It would cost the university -n the number of students who might come here because of our athletic program, and in students who might leave be- cause of the lack of Dr. Day said. He said if the proposal was passed by G-FC it would be un- likely that it would mean staff because no one has a ma- jor time commitment to coach- ing and organizing athletic cv- enls. The Athletic Advisory Com- mittee will meet Monday to prepare its case for mainte- nance of the university grant to the department. Gary Bowie, assistant profes- sor of physical education and the director of athletics, ex pressed disappoint ment Ihat the department was kept in the dark about the planned recom- mendation. "I feel Ihat someone from the a I ti 1 c t i c department should have been invited to the meet- ing when this was discussed, he said. "I don't think the committee las taken all the implications if such a move into consider- ation." He said the physical educa- tion department wijl fight the at the March GFC meeting. "The battle has just ho said. Mr. Bowie added that on the surface, ttic athletic program is a logical place to make finan- cial cuts, but a much closer look must be taken before such a move is approved. "We are easy prey because not all students take part in athletics. It wouldn't be loo un- popular to take a potshot at he said.

When they arc used in In- dian Battle Park where there is sufficient snow cover, snowmo- biles are "far less detrimental" scussion to the city's land than are mo- torcycles, he said. He said he, and not city coun- cil, is responsible for designat- ing the park for snowmobile use as long as the operators abide by the regulations.
