Gymnasts, Thi
Host Badgers, Illinois Today;
Conference Crown at Stake

nclads in Final Trials

It's bounce or else for the Mich-
igan gymnasts.
The Wolverines must win to-!
day's triangular meet against a
consistent Illinois team as well
as Wisconsin in order to have a
shot at the Big Ten crown.
This afternoon's home meet willj
end regular conference competi-'
tion for the gymnasts. The meet,,
starting at 2:00 p.m., will be held
in the intramural building.
The Illini and Wisconsin are
currently tied for fourth place
in the Big Ten, trailing Michigan
by only one point. Wisconsin,
which has already lost to MSU
and Iowa has been averaging only,
172 points and is not expected to
cause much commotion.
The Illini's top score is 186.6,
although they have been a con-
sistent team averaging just under
186 points.
Michigan, on the other hand,
has been more erratic, nearing
189 against State, but averaging
While the Wolverines are bat-
tling Illinois today, Iowa invades
Michigan State in another decid-
ing meet. If State wins there will
be a three-way tie for first place
and the winner will be decided
in the Big Ten Championships
next weekend.
However, if Iowa wins, the Wol-
verines will be forced to capture
the Big Ten to salvage a tie for

Leading the Illini is caprain
Hal Shaw, who is averaging bet-
ter than 9.4 in his favorite event,
the long horse. Among 'Shaw's
awards are two Big Ten vaulting
titles; he should repeat this year.
Shaw, not satisfied with con-
ventional vaulting stunts created
his own, now nicknamed the
O'Shaw, where he leaps to the
end of the horse and then som-
ersaults. In addition to his top
performances in vaulting Shaw is
a very good performer in floor
exercise and on the trampoline.
Next in line is senior Coos;ie
Rollo. Besides being second in the
long horse, Rollo is an excellent
performer on the parallel bars
and trampoline, averaging near 91
in both. Last year he placed third
in the Big Ten trampoline compe-
Slightly ahead of Rollo on the

Leading Illinois' still rings squad
is junior Mark Kaplan. This sea-
son Kaplan has averaged well over

lent shot at the Big Ten title.

ably the best by anyone in any
event this year.
Russo hails from Cuyahoga

Mike Carpenter. Russo should
capture the Big Ten crown and
will have a good chance in the
Another solid performer is soph-
omore Don Dunfield, who helps

on the trampoline.
The Michigan gymnasts, who
have shown flashes of brilliance
mixed with mediocrity finally
seemed to have settled down:
"The team has been a bit slow,
but they have finally jelled into
a strong unit, full of confidence


and able to hit well against both
Illinois and Wisconsin," com-
mented Loken.
All is not well, however, with
the Wolverines-. Junior Fred Rod-
ney injured himself in practice
this week and will probably not
be able to compete. Rodney's
services will be missed as he is
one of Michigan's best vaulters,
as well as a solid performer on
the high bar. Rodney is also
backup man in several events.
If Rodney does not make it Ray
Timm will fill in on the high bar.
On the bright side, the Michi-
gan tramp team of Captain Wayne
Miller, George Huntizicker, and
Dave Jacobs are back in top form

is a senior college. It offers the third and fourth years of the undergraduate
curriculum, leading to the B.A. degree. We accept liberal arts students
who have completed the equivalent of the freshman and sophomore years
elsewhere. We offer two programs-Humanities and Social Science. Half
the work in each program is done in DIVISIONAL COURSES which span
the traditional departmental boundaries in order to study the basic con-
cepts, methods and principles of the larger discipline. In addition to the
Divisional Sequence of courses each student works in a specialized area
and engages in a tutorial leading to independent study. The program cul-
minates in an lutcr-Divisional-Senior Seminar, which examines the rela-
tionships between the disciplines of Social Science, the Humanities and the
Natural Sciences.

The juniors in the Social Sciences take
three Divisional (year long) courses.
In the first course the emphasis is on
a systematic analysis of a large (mac-
ro) soial order -in. this.. case the
American culture. Readings include:
Paul Goodman, Drawing the Line;
Luckman and Berger, Social Mobility
and Personal Identity; C. Wright
Mills, selections; Parsons, The Link
Betwien Character and Society; Car-
michael, What We Want; de Tocque-
ville, Democracy in America; San-
tayana, Character and Opinion in the
United States; selections from Freud
and Skinner; economic analysis by
Knight, Samuelson and Marx; and
political analysis in the terms of
Hume, Aristotle and Dewey. The sec-
ond course is in micro-analysis, i.e.,
an examination of subcultures seen
in relation to the larger community.
We read Glazer and Moynihan, Be-
yond the Melting Pot; Malinowski,
Kroeber, T. S. Eliot (Notes Toward
the Definition of Culture), Weber
(The Protestant Ethic), Erik Erikson,
Malcolm X, and more readings and
field work on such subcultures as the
hippies, the poor and the black na-
tionalists. The third course is con-
cerned with comparative analysis-
specifically a comparison of US-
USSR, largely in terms of the social,
political and economic dimensions in
the process of industrialization which
have taken place, east and west. The
readings include case study material
as well as complex conceptual anal-
yses: Henderson, Ashton, Bendix,
Nef, Moore, Schumpter, and more.
Al Divisional Classes for all students'
are small. The major concern of the
classroom is to analyze the readings.
Teaching is by diseussion-a syste-
matic approach to each text.

The juniors in the Humanities also take three year long
courses. Working with materials from all of the arts and
philosophy these courses engage the student in various
modes of critical, and interpretive. analysis in order to
maximize the possibilities for significant discoveries in
confronting the vast range of works created by man's
intellect and imagination.
Here, as an example, are excerpts from last year's com-
prehensive examination. "The following texts all concern
themselves to a greater or lesser extent with the question
of human history, and the correlative question, the possi-
bilities for progress. Choose three of the following texts
and compare and contrast their treatment of these ques-
tions. Communijt Manifesto; Reason and Experience
(Dewey); Structure of Scientific Revolutions (Kuhn);
Genesis; Antigone; Caesar and Cleopatra; The Sound and
the Fury.".. ."2. One factor which would seem to distin-
guish indisputably the modern temperament from the past
is the drastically shifting conception of the heroic-not
only in terms of what the heroic indeed is, but also in terms
of what possibilities for heroism still exist. Discuss this
quotation drawing evidence from Job; Phadre; The Strang-
er; Hippolytus; Marat/Sade; The Balcony; Billiards at
Half Past Nine.. ."3. Using one of the following films,
8 , Wild Strawberries, Last Year at Marienbad, The
Knack, Ulysses, discuss in what sense the material (i.e.,
cinematic technique) affects the value judgments you make
of character, incident, and theme."..."4. How do partic-
ular words or images control aesthetic responses in the
following poems: Leda and the Swan, The Loresong of
J. Alfred Prufrock, A Coney Island of the Mind.".. ."5.
Compare the role of coincidence in King Lear and Tom
Jones, indicating to what extent the nature of that role is
determined by the tragic structure of the one and the comic
structure of the other."..."6. In reading both philosophy
and arguments, language has been one of the most recur-
rent topics: Aristotle on diction in the Poetics, Plato on the
living word, Augustine on the Word that was in the be-
ginning, Unamuno on the birth of language in relation to
the tragic sense, Wordsworth and Coleridge on the rela-
tion of language to the minds of men, Freud on verbal
slips, and Heidegger, Carnap, Wittgenstein and Chomsky
on philosophic issues bound up with language. Using at
least four of the above, write a brief essay on language
by indicating some key insight of each of the four and
discussing the scope of the problem (or values) language
presents us with."

For the second time in their
two-meet season, the Michigan
freshmen swimmers will go into
action "blind" to the strengths
of the opposition.
i This past January, the Wolver-
ine frosh had almost no infor-
mation before they took on the
MSU freshmen in Matt Mann
Pool. They didn't need it though,
as they walloped the little Spar-
tans, 79-53.
Today, at the Big Ten fresh-
man meet in East Lansing, the
Wolverines won't have to worry
about the Spartans. But Indiana
is another problem. All the Mich-
igan coaches have is a better line
on their own swimmers, thanks
to the first meet.

his salary dispute is settled.

Yankees, is concerned about his
absentee pitcher.
"He needs the work," there's no
question about that," said Houk.
"I like a pitcher to work 20 to 25
