    Intramurals stress solo sports
By TERRY RHOADES
Of the Emerald
The University intramural
department has changed its
focus for the summer and is
offering self-direction programs
for individuals.
"During the regular school
year our programs are more
team-sport oriented, but this
summer we want the individual
to get involved in their own
recreation programs," in
tramural director Karla Rice
says.
To increase student and
faculty interest, the intramural
department has scheduled golf,
tennis, cycling and fun-run
competitions, Rice says.
The first of six scheduled runs
around campus will begin today
at 3:30 p.m. on the Gerlinger
driveway. The fun runs vary in
Golf, fun runs scheduled
distance from one mile to three
miles.
The summer intramural
schedule also includes an Early
Bird Golf League at the Laurel
wood Golf Course. The league
player with the lowest net score
will win a month of free golf
there.
The University tennis
tournament singles competition
starts July 16 at 3:30 p.m. The
mixed doubles tournament
begins one week later.
Except for golf league tee
fees, no entry fees are charged
Participants must register for
both golf and tennis at the in
tramural office, Room 103, Ger
linger Hall.
In addition to the scheduled
intramural events, students and
faculty members also can use
University recreation facilities,
including:
• The Leighton Pool during the
week from 11:30 a m. to 1 p.m.,
and from 2 to 4 p.m. Sundays.
Gerlinger Pool, on the first floor
of the Gerlinger Annex, is open
from 7 to 8:30 a m weekdays.
• The volleyball, badminton and
basketball courts in the Ger
linger Annex during the week,
from 5 to 7 p.m., except Friday.
Basketball courts are located
around the campus, and pick
up games usually can be found
Outside courts can be found on
Agate Street in front of the Wal
ton complex and in the parking
lot on 15th Avenue between the
Walton and Earl complexes.
• The tennis and racquetball
courts on 15th Avenue next to
Esslinger Hall and the outdoor
tennis courts on 16th Avenue
and Alder Street. These courts
usually are available for drop-in
play.
• The Stevenson Track at
Hayward Field, on the corner of
15th Avenue and Agate Street
Joggers also can use the cinder
track just west of Hayward Field
The dirt path circling the Pion
eer Cemetery across from
McArthur Court is a jog less
than a mile in distance.
Rice encourages students
and faculty members to drop by
the intramural office for Frisbee
golf course directions and addi
tional information on current
and future activities.
ESCAPE dives out-of-class credits
By RICK WAGNER
For the Emerald
The University’s ESCAPE
program offers students an al
ternate means of earning col
lege credit this summer.
The group’s name stands for
“Every Student Caring About
Personalized Education,” and
the program is designed to
provide learning opportunities
beyond the classroom setting.
Students sign up for volunteer
work in a community service
organization and in return
receive one upper-division
credit for every three hours they
work per week, operating on a
term-to-term basis.
A wide variety of placements
are available, including work in
public and middle schools, cor
rections agencies, nursing
centers, legal aid, child care,
hearing and speech centers and
halfway houses.
‘‘One of the main objectives
of the program is to let students
learn by doing,’1 says Jim Doty,
ESCAPE'S director. "Volun
teers can get experience in the
field that will supplement what
they’ve been learning in the
classroom.”
The organization operates
year-round and has few restric
tions. Any student can enroll
and no prior experience in
community service is needed
Up to nine credits may be
earned per term. First-term
volunteers attend a seminar to
introduce them to the program.
Students have operated ES
CAPE since it began in 1969
The program is the largest
student-run organization at the
University, involving more than
1,500 students per year
Another benefit of ESCAPE is
that it helps improve the rela
tionship between the University
and the surrounding area, Doty
says. Volunteers provide
necessary services in the com
munity and in return gain valua
ble experience and skills from
their work. This system creates
a positive student-community
interaction which helps keep
the University from seeming
isolated from the surrounding
area, he says.
The experience volunteers
gain through ESCAPE can be
very beneficial after graduation
when looking for employment,
Doty says, adding that often the
contacts made while working in
the program can lead students
to jobs or cateers in their field.
The last day to register for
ESCAPE credit is July 7.
Stuidents interested in the pro
gram can find more information
in the ESCAPE office, Room
327, EMU.

BOYCOTT
THE DRAFT!
NOT THE OLYMPICS!
We fear that the manipulation of Olympic athletes for foreign
policy goals is part of a larger policy to involve all of us in
future military ventures. We invite all of those who share our
fears to join us in dissent.
We call for: 1) An end to the boycott of the Moscow Olympics.
2) Opposition to rising pro-war sentiment. 3) No draft or draft
registration.
