The Michigan freshman basket-
ball team nailed the lid on a per-
fect campaign last night as they
clobbered the Toledo frosh, 105-84.
Despite the fact that they played
only a three-game schedule, the
yearlings went undefeated beating
both Michigan State and Ohio
State prior to last night's contest.

Ford pulled down 13 rebounds, best

"You can ask me anything,"
grinned freshman coach George
Pomey in the post-game confines
of the locker room. "Because right
now I feel like I have all the an-
swers."
Agreement
Anybody who saw the game
would have inclined to agree.
The junior Wolverines shot a
strong 47 per cent (Toledo hit 40
per cents), out rebounded the visit-
ors 56-32, were credited with only
12 turnover to 20 for Toledo, and
never really gave them a winning
chance.
Moving to a steady four to six
point advantage early in the first
half, the freshmen held on, then
suddenly went on a spree with
three minutes remaining.
Behind the rebounding of Ford
and Lundstedt, and Ford's fade-
away jumpers (he recorded 20
points in the first half), they led
52-41 at the intermission.
The second half was simply
more of the same. But Dan Fife
and Mike Rafferty picked the
scoring reins. Each finished with
17 points, Fife notching 14 in the
final frame, and Rafferty 11.
Better Defensively,
"We really did a much better
job on them defensively in the sec-
ond half," commented Pomey. "We
were picking them up faster, and
switched off on the man-to-man
more smoothly."
Part of the victory must be at-
tributed to the frosh bench, used
reguarly throughout the first half.
Toledo, led by Butch Lowe and
Statve Shay, was forced to rely
heavily on its starting five. Lowe

and Shay, who scored 30 and 22
points respectively, received littlel
aid from their teammates.
Pomey pointed out the difficulty
of "gettirig up" for the game.1
"When you only play three games
in a season each contest isealmost
an anti-climax after all the prac-
tice."

This Volkswagen has a door on the left to let in
the driver. (That's one.) A door on the right to let
in the passengers. (That's two.) And a door in the
back which is like the tailgate of a conventional
wagon. (That's the third, and do you need any
more than that?)
To look at it, you'd swear our Squareback is a
station wagon. But it really isn't.
Why? Well for one thing it doesn't cost like one,
For another, it doesn't park like one. (The Square-
back is only six inches longer than the bug. But has
three times the storage capacity.)
And since it's a Volkswagen you can be pretty
sure it'll use about half as much gasoline as the
overage wagon. (Our Squareback gets up to 27
miles per aallon.)

Don't waste another precious minute working or worrying. These
