Hammond Tops Late Draft Picks

Seeing The Flower Children
On $25 A Week
Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Got down on my knees
And I began to .. .
Sleep. In San Diego. We had been hanging around a public
fishing wharf and we met a grizzled geezer who told us he knew of
a church that' kept its doors open all night. He gave us directions
and we went there and had a good rest. The pastor came in the next
morning and didn't even wake us up. We were however, somewhat
surprised as we made our exit to find that the same grizzled dillet-
tante fisherman also worked as landscaper at the church. He had
'eglected to tell us that.
But churches are cheap and they are quiet. If you want to go
to California this spring, and you want to do it on the "go now, pay
little" plan, take a sleeping bag. Myself and my three miserly room-
mates of last year - Dick, Randy and Steve - spent almost four
weeks last spring seeing the Golden West and we did it for just about
K 00.00 apiece, of which about $40 was gas for the engine of our
frring Valiant. Thus the trip itself cost just over $2 a day and we
really didn't live badly.
On the way out we stopped nights in dormitories at our nation's
great, hospitable higher institutions of learning - Colorado College
(Colo. Springs), The University of Colorado (Boulder), The Univer-
sity of Utah (Salt Lake), and the University of Nevada (Reno), all
for a grand total of $0.
In San Francisco we "crashed" one night at the pad of a
pair of somewhat meshuginah hippies (if a hippie can be
meshuginah). The next day, however, one of them panhandled
us for a 40-mile ride across the bridge to San Leandro because
he wanted to have breakfast with his mother. We waited outside
his house and were promptly accosted by several of San Lean-
dro's finest, who knew the lad's reputation and searched us and
our car, then admonished us for, hanging about with such
- undesirables.
Two or three other nights we ended up in Golden Gate Park
which is on the ocean and gets cold, but otherwise is fairly
One morning a policeman on a horse rudely ruined the serenity
of our "nature was my bedroom" philosophy by stomping noisily into
our chosen cranny of the park. However, we were quite obviously
non-violent and neither said cop nor sturdy steed appeared too upset.
He warned us not to do it again, which meant that Randy, Dick
and Steve were forced to spend their last night in SF in the local
' YMCA, while I slept in the car. .
In Sacramento and San Jose, nepotism was the big kick. In
Wie former, my uncle shared his comfortable middle class abode
with us and also showed us the house of a less warm-hearted neigh-
bor, Ronny Reagan.
Randy's uncle, a seaweed salesman and one of the most
unusual men I have met, provided the lodging in San Jose and
then took a day off from the kelp factory to drive us in his
Lincoln Continental down to Monterey Bay and Carmel-by-the-
* Sea. (Relatives are excellent on trips. Their beds are clean and
their food is excellent and inexpensive. However, children may
be present. For serenity, churches and parks are better.)
At times we were really living high off the bovine. In LA we
slept at the Bel Air Sands Motel, one of the most luxurious estab-
Ashments on the west coast. In December I had stayed at the Sands
courtesy of the Michigan basketball team, and I had discovered a
grassy plain overlooking it and all of LA, from which we could not
be spotted. So we spent three or four various nice nights. I recom-
mend the Sands' Plateau quite highly, though it is preferable to stay
here in the winter when the sultry smog doesn't descend so low.
The most traumatic resting place we found was Tijuana,
Mexico. If you go across the border it might be judicious to ap-
propriate a buck or two'for a cheap hotel, We didn't, trying the
Tijuana beach instead. The problem with the Tijuana beach is
that it is infested with giant black rats and this is somewhat
unconducive to a good night's sleep. I had barely said my prayers
when out from this cavernous piece of driftwood 15 yards away
came a whole family of the friendly beasts. I was off the beach
in fifteen seconds. Steve had flown from LA back to Ann Arbor,
before we left for Mexico, but there was still only room for two
of us in the car. (If you want to use your car to sleep in, don't
drive a Valient.) Coins were flipped and I lost. I spent the night
on the car roof which was bad for all three of us as the metal
would cave in periodically.
The next night we were still sufficiently upset by the whole thing
and were driving back through southern California only a few miles
from the border, so we decided to invest in a lonely-looking motel.
After three weeks of sleeping in parks, on roofs and dormitory floors,
the motel was appeciated by us all.
The night following this we attempted to bust in at Northern
Arizona University in Tucson or Flagstaff or someplace like that.
We ran into trouble though, as the Resident Dean, a slimy, suspicious
looking cur, found us lugging our gear into a lounge. All was saved
however, when he found we were from Michigan. He was an Alum
from the early forties and, from the eagerness with which he digested
news of our region, I gathered that he hadn't been out of the desert
since just about that time. Before we were done, he even gave us
each a room and a bed.
Just outside of Amarillo, Texas, we slept on the hard ground

once again, and were restless in the night for fear of rattlesnakes.
Morning found us all healthy, and we headed for St. Louis and
Steve's house, where we could languor away the last days of our
