Position

By BOB LEES
The Oklahoma Sooners, stop-
ping in Ann Arbor for step six of
one of the toughest road trips any
grappling team has a right to ex-
pect, found a cordial welcome
awaiting them. The squad was
greeted with praise, treated with
friendship, and made to feel right
at home.
But at 4:00, p.m. yesterday, it
wasuall business. The Sooners,
after their formal introductions
to their Wolverine opponents, pro-
ceeded to dispose methodically of
seven of their opposite numbers,
and by 5:30 the Michigan matmen
found themselves at the short end
of a 21-8 sctore.,
Last Saturday night, after the
Wolverines' convincing defeat of
Iowa, several members of the
squad traveled to East Lansing to
watch the Sooners eke out a win
over Michigan State. "We had
them well scouted, all right," de-
clared assistant Michigan coach
joRick Bay, "but there are some
things that scouting just can't
.help."
It was obvious to yesterday's
spectators what scouting couldn't
help, and match coach Cliff Keen
made it official: "We were just
outconditioned."
A look at the individual matches
shows just how true this was. In
five of the eight events contested,
the man in Blue had the early lead
on his Sooner counterpart, only to
tire as his match ware on. As one
press box observer noted, "They
looked like the Michigan football
*team out there today."
The brightest spot in an other-
wise disastrous afternoon came in
the 130-pound class. Oklahoma's
representative was David McGuire,
last year's NCAA champ at that
weight, and the Amateur Wrestling
News' choice as Sophomore Wres-
tler of 1967. Michigan countered
with Lou Hudson, a talented new-
comer in his own right. When
Hudson came out on top by a 6-5
score, the crowd exploded.
But that was the last time Mich-
igan's supporters had anything to
cheer about, as the meet score,
3-3 then, jumped up by units of
three, all on Oklahoma's side, the
rest of the way. The Wolverine
fans were even cheated out of
their customary sight of a Dave
Porter victory at heavyweight,
when the Sooners, with victory al-
ready in hand, didn't bother to put
anyone on the mats.
Obscured in the shock of the
overall score was the fact that
there were no pins. In fact, as
Keen summarized, "Every match
was reasonably close. They weren't
that much better, but at the end
of nearly every match they had
just a little more than us. Okla-
homa, of course, faces some of the
toughest competition possible, and

it. makes all their boys just that
much tougher in the rough meets."
The Sooners do, in fact, have
a fantastic schedule this year.
Their first seven meets saw them
away from the friendly confines
of Stillwater, and five of these
were against Top Ten squads.
The Wolverines, of course, with
their preseason number one rank-
ing, were of prime concern to thle
Sooner squad, and now this con-
cern is history. The defeat yester-
day may serve as an incentive to
the Michigan squad, as Keen de-
clared afterwards that "I hope the
lessons we learned were enough
to realy spur us on the rest of the
season.
"But right now," he concluded,
"Oklahoma deserves that top posi-
tion.

Houston Dumps UCLA, as No. 1

By The Associated Press
The Houston Cougars, who
ended UCLA's unbeaten string at
47 games, toppled the Bruins from
first place in The Associated Press'
college basketball poll yesterday
while taking over the lead them-
selves by an overwhelming margin.
Houston, a 71-69 winner over
UCLA Saturday night, received 32
first-place votes and three for sec-
ond while the Bruins drew only
three for the top position and 32
for second in the ballotting by a
national panel of 35 sports writers
and broadcasters.
Thus, on a basis of 10 points
for a first-place vote, 9 for second,
the Cougars had 347 points, to
UCLA's 318. Houston is unbeaten
in 17 games.
First Since Start
The Bruins headed last season's
final poll and had led each week
since the start of the 1967-68 cam-
paign.
New Mexico and St. Bonaven-
ture, two other undefeated teams,
gained ground. They moved up be-
hind third-ranked North Carolina.
The Tar Heels were idle- last
week, their record holding at 11-1.
New Mexico advanced from sixth

to fourth after defeating Utah 72-
66 and Wyoming 81-72, increasing
its mark to 16-0. St. Bonaventure,
13-0, including last week's victory
over Canisius, climbed from sev-
enth to fifth.
Tennessee Drops
Tennessee, which split two
games with Florida, dropped from
fourth to sixth. Vanderbilt a 74-
65 winner over Auburn for a 12-3
record, moved from ninth to sev-
enth while Columbia also advanced
two positions, from 10th to eighth.
The Lions, 11-3, beat Cornell in
their only start last week.
Kentucky fell one place to ninth

geles Lakers were awarded De-

SPORT SHORTS:
Name Athletes Defy.

By The Associated Press i
NEW YORK - A statement
by some of America's top track
stars that if any of them were
declared ineligible for the Oly-
mpics all of them would stay out
of the Games has drawn guarded
comment from the Amateur Ath-
letic Union.
A statement issued in Chicago
Sunday, and subscribed to by such
stars as Jim Ryun, Ralph Boston
and Gerry Lindgreen, said, 'if
any of our number is disqualified
because of his or her competing
in a meet of their choice, we will

consider ourselves to be in the
same status."
Yesterday, Col. Donald Hull, ex-
ecutive director of the AAU, said
"We regreat that some of our
fine Olympic athletes have taken
this action."
The AAU has warned that any
athletes competing in the U.S.
Track and Field Federation meet.
in New York Feb. 9 would be
ineligible for Olympic competion.
The meet has no AUU sanction
and the presence of some non-col-
legians require one, the AAUhas
said.

NBA Expands
NEW YORK - The National'
Basketball Association, a n i n e-
team league just two years, mush-
roomed to 14 teams for the 1968-
69 season yesterday by awarding
franchises to Milwaukee, Wis., and
Phoenix, Ariz.
The addition of two franchises
was another part of the timetable,
announced last year, that would
bulge the NBA to 18 teams for
the 1970-71 season. If that time-
table is followed, two more teams
would be added next year and
another two the year after that.

AAU
The new franchises cost their
owners $2 million each, an in-
crease over the $1.75 million it
cost for San Diego, Cailf., and
Seattle, Wash., to join the league
this season. The $2 million is
equal to the amount it cost each
of the six new new teams in the
National Hockey League.
That price; of course, is far
below the estimated $8.5 million
it cost New Orleans, La., to join
the National Football League and
Cincinnati, the American Football
League.

Depends on the giant. Actually, some giants are just regular
kinds of guys. Except bigger.
And that can be an advantage.,
How? Well, for one thing, you've got more going for
you. Take Ford Motor Conpany. A giant in an exciting
and vital business. Thinking giant thoughts. About the
profit opportunities in Mustang. Cougar. A city car for
the future.
Come to work for this giant and you'll begin to think
like one.
Because you're dealing with bigger problems, the
consequences, of course, will be greater. Your responsibilities
heavier. That means your experience must be better-more
complete. And so; you'll get the kind of opportunities only a
giant can give.
Giants just naturally seem to attract top professionals.
Men that you'll be working with, and for. Financial manage-
inent pros working hard to accelerate your advancement.

Because there's more to do, you'll learn more. In more
areas. You may handle as many as three different assignments
in your first two years.
You'll develop a talent for making hard-nosed, imagina-
tive decisions. And you'll know how these decisions affect
the guts of the operation. At the grass roots. Because you'll
have been there.
If you'd like to be a giant yourself, and you've got
better ideas in financial management, see the man from Ford
when he visits your campus. Or send your resume to Ford
Motor Company, College Recruiting Department.
You and Ford can grow bigger together.
