Chocolate

Pudding Colors

By ROBIN WRIGHT
How does New Jersey, a non-
swimming family, a girl and chco-
late pudding mold a swimming
captain - specifically - Fred
Brown?
Brown's parents played their
part by joining a swim club and
the YMCA, despite the fact that
neither of them can swim. His
favorite food, chocolate pudding, is
always available in a slightly
burned version at his apartment
as nourishment after a meet.
The third and more important
factor in his life is his fiance, Sue
Crossman. They met on a fix-up
arranged by last year's captain
Carl Robie, and discovered Sue
lives only 45 miles from Brown's
home in Springfield, New Jersey.

Brown calls Sue "the most settling
influence in my life. Since I met
her I have become more conscien-
tious in school, diving, and my
general outlook on the future."
Career Developments
Brown began swimming as a
backstroker at the age of six. Not
until he was 13 did he begin "fool-
ing around" with diving. His first
meet as a diver was at the Junior
Olympic events on the state level
where he placed second. Fromn
there he went on to capture the
national Catholic diving cham-
pionship for three consecutive
years, and the State diving cham-
pionship for two years.
Michigan coach Gus Stager
should never have needed to wor-
ry about Brown coming to Michi-
gan. The man who started Brown
diving, Bill Kogen, was one of
Stager's teammates at Michigan.
"Kogen was the most important
person in terms of teaching and
counseling me at an early stage,"
Brown explained.
"Diving became my first love.
I learned how to gain complete
control over my body from the
time I leave the board until I hit
the water. It's an exhilarating
sport where timing and coordina-
tion are more important than
brute strength."
Brown went on, "diving has
brought me many rewarding ex-
periences. But I've been lucky
enough to have great coaches to
train under, especially Dick Kim-
ball."
"Kimball is often slighted. He
has turned many good high school
divers into good quality college
divers, not national champs, but

Brown's
swimming or aid in personal prob-
lems."
Sue explains Brown's attitude
toward the boys. "He worries a
lot about the team. Unity is very
importantto him and because
he's a diver he feels he should put
more time in with the swimmers.
He's realistic about the limita-
tions of himself and the team. He
emphasizes working up to the
peak of their abilities rather than
dreaming and then being disap-
pointed. He feels a chief respon-
sibility in building up confidence
with the guys in practice and be-
fore a game."
Brown is noted on the team!
for his two jinxes, being accident
prone and color blind. As late as
last week at a Detroit Athletic
Club exhibition Brown injured
his chin when he demonstrated
from the diving board and some-
one neglected to tell him the
water was only six feet deep. His
accidents vary from a broken
hand after hitting the board to
a scar on his face as a result of
a paddleball game, which cost
him a week in the middle of
swimming season last year. '
Being color blind has caused
lies him much embarrassment. Once
tion he wore one burgundy and one
lved black sock to class. When some-
Ined one brought it to his attention, he
im- didn't believe it. Now he has to
s to memorize his clothes and have
iness Sue sort his underwear for him.
ove- Besides diving and Sue, Brown
vital likes to spend time with the
M i c h i g a u m a "tribe", playing
his paddleball and attending other
hnc sporting events. Sue likes to tease
ame him about his latest hobby --
eam, playing the Newlywed Game -
ybe and whether it's for pleasure or
f, as practice.

steady point getters. He's able to
mold a diver, whereas someone like
Hobie from Indiana tries harder
at recruiting than coaching. Kim-
ball is patient, understanding and
always ready to help spot or work
with anyone willing to put out the
effort. He's one of the keys to my
performance.
"I think the proof of this came
two weeks ago when I beat Jim
Henry from Indiana who was na-
tional diving champion last year."

Right now Brown's future

now, but would like to be invo
in a business career. He expla
his hopes, "I think the most
portant function of a career i
offer a challenge. To me, busi

Will diving have a place in
future plans? "If I have, a chE

be a golfer-it's the only pro

Story
Negro Threat
Of Boycott
Abandoned
Daily News Analysis
A Negro boycott of athletics at
the University of California in
Berkeley was apparently scotched
yesterday when both black and
white players showed up at bas-
ketball practice.
heCoach Rene Herrerias said that
hewas confident his athletic ra -
cial problems were over.
A group of 25 black athletes
Tuesday threatened an immediate
boycott of California athletics if
the university did not meet eight
conditions, including the firing of
Herrerias and two assistant foot-
ball coaches.
They charged racial discrimina-
tion by all three coaches.
George Presley, high scoring
center, touched off the controver-
sey when Herrerias suspended him
last week. Presley had alleged that
his suspension "had to do with
racial overtones" and that Herre-
rias was "totally incompetent."
Education
Presley and his four Negro
teammates, however, said yester-
day, "We are more interested in
an education." If the players had
quit the team in protest as origin-
ally planned, their athletic schol-
arships would probably have been
withdrawn.
Presley maintained that the
movement was still going on, call-
ing for reforms in the ahtletic
department and in the treatment
of civil rights on campus.
White basketball players, who
still say Presley is lying about Her-
rerias' reasons for suspending him,
added that they would "be per-
fectly willing to play with Presley
if he accepts our coach."
Herrerias is white.
Flyers Top Leafs
TORONTO (R) - Claude La-
Forege's goal midway through the
final period and some spectacular
goal tending by Doug Favell
boosted Philadelphia to a 2-1 vic-
tory over Toronto in a National
Hockey League game yesterday
night.
The triumph by the Flyers, who
lead the West Division, ended a
four-game Toronto winning streak
and kept the Maple Leafs from
gaining a share of first place in
the East Division.

Many apartment managers are telling students that they must sign
now to be sure of an apartment next year. This is not true. They are
trying to sign up as many students as they can on 12-month leases
before students realize there will be a vacancy rate next year and
demand 8-month leases or lower rents. The Student Housing Asso-
