Gyiasts Seek Reven ge
Revenge and Tucson.
No, not an idea for a western thriller, but rather the two thoughts
on the minds of the gymnasts. The Wolverines hope to revenge their
loss to Iowa earlier this season and retake the Big Ten title which
the Hawkeyes grabbed last year ending a seven-year Michigan
Tucson is where the winner of the Big Ten Championship travels
to compete in the NCAA Gymnastics Championship. Iowa has the
inside track because it leads the Big Ten after dual meet competition.
The Big Ten Championship is determined by the dual meet
results and the Big Ten Meet, each of which counts half. Iowa
only needs a second-place finish in the meet this weekend at
Michigan State to insure itself of a share of the championship.
. Michigan, finishing second to the Hawkeyes in dual meet com-
pettion, must beat them in order to advance to the NCAA's. It is
possible for Iowa to finish third in the Big Ten Meet and still tie for
the title. If Michigan State, presently in third place, wins the meet,
and Michigan takes second, the result will be a three-way tie for the
If any sort of tie develops, the NVAA would be in quite a bind.
A rule imposed this year states that only the winner of each league
will advance to the NCAA championships, rather than having a re-
gional meet to determine participants. The result is that only one

Extending man's reach is the challenge at Grumman. The
creation of advanced aircraft and space vehicles requires
creative design of a high order of magnitude if man is to
truly extend his reach in the- domains previously denied
him. These vehicles, whether for defending the national
interest or for exploring extraterrestrial space, must be so
designed as to enable man to survive, function and fulfill
his mission in every environment. Then "the bring-back"
ability which only he possesses remains intact. At Grum-
man, all design requirements are delineated with th ir-
eradicable fact in mind. The creativity necessary to attain
these requirements lies in the hands of the engineer who is
constantly striving to extend his technological
reach. To assist him, Grumman has created
an Engineering Masters Fellowship Pro-
gram. Fellowship applications are
now being accepted for the aca-
demic year beginning in
Program consists of
two basic types of awards. The first
is available directly to 1968 gradu-
ating engineers with Bachelors De-
grees in all engineering areas related
to aerospace. (Ten Fellowships of this
type are currently available). >The
second is open to engineers who have
been with .our company for a mini-
mum of one year. The Fellowship will
be granted for a year and will be re-
newable for an additional year upon
satisfactory completion of the 12-
month work/study plan. An op-
tional feature of this program
permits six months rota-
tional work assignments in
order to broaden Fellow's
technical base and allow
for evaluation of re-
lated technical fields.

school can represent the Big Ten, where normally two or three schools
finish in the top five. A tie between Big Ten teams will mean that
both should be able to advance to the NCAA championships.
Michigan's other motive, revenge, is almost as great an
incentive as an NCAA berth. Last year, Iowa beat Michigan in
the Big Ten meet and NCAA regionals. Michigan had beatenE
them in dual meet competition, and had come back to defeat
the Hawkeyes in the NCAA championships and finish second to
This year, the Wolverines met Iowa early in the season and were
soundly stomped, 189.95-186.85. Since then, the Wolverines' perform-
ances have noticably improved while Iowa's haven't. The result should
be an extremely close contest.
Michigan State has not scored quite as consistantly high as Iowa
or Michigan. They have, however, showed the potential of putting
together a winning score.
'The sidehorse is our key to a victory," prophesized Michigan's
gymnastic coach, Newt Loken. The scores have been generally low
and erratic and unless they combine to get at least a mediocre result,
the gymnasts won't be able to make up the deficit.
For Iowa the sidehorse is one of their strongest events, but
their weakest event is Michigan's strength, the trampoline. If
Iowa is not able to perform adequately on the tramp, Michigan's
task could be much easier.
All three teams are fairly injury-free. Michigan's Fred Rodney,
who missed last weekend's match with Illinois because of a sore
shoulder will be "in excellent shape" according to Coach Newt Loken.
Dave Jacobs, recently hampered by injured feet, should be okay for
the full-time semester hours (approximately nine credits)
so as to complete his Masters Degree within a two-year
period. Fellows must pursue scholastic programs directly
applicable to the needs of the Corporation. Local resi-
dency and- attendance at a local university are required.
Candidates for the Program must have at least a
3.04.0 grade point average (or the equivalent) for their
SALARY AND BENEFITS
The total value of the Fellowships ranges from $10,750 to
$13,000 per year. The Fellow will be paid for the
number of hours worked per
week, based upon an equi-
table starting salary prevailing
at the time the Fellowship
commences. The Fellow's per-
formance will be evaluated dur-
ing the two-year period and he
will be eligible for raise con-
siderations in the same manner
as every other employee. He
will also be entitled to full
normal employee benefits. A
stipend of $1,000 for the Fellow
plus $500 for each dependent
(spouse and children) will be paid
each year, plus full tuition,
books and fees.
