By ANDY BARBAS
Big Ten Commissioner Bill Reed
announced yesterday that 'there
will be a playoff to decide the
three-way tie for the conference
gymnastics championship. Michi-
gan State coach, George Szypula,
responded, "We are not going."
In a four-way conference phone
call, the athletic directors from
Michigan, Michigan State, and
Iowa, and Reed discussed the res-
olution of the conference gym-
nastics repregentative to the na-
tional championships.
After the discussion, the opin-
ion was 2-1 in favor of holding
a playoff to determine the repre-
sentative. Michigan State dissent-
ed, feeling that they had already
qualified as the conference en-
trant, by winning the conference
meet

Szypula refused to comment
further after saying his team
woildn't compete in the playoff.
Michigan State athletic director,
Clarence "Biggie" Munn, said, "If
Coach Szypula decides not to go,
I will support him. The NCAA
rules define who should qualify
for the national meet, and under
the rules I feel we have already
qualified."
Spartan captain Dave Thor
concurred. 'Any playoff now," he
exclaimed, "is like making up rules
after we qualified. It seems un-
fair."
He added, "We've already sent
in our NCAA application."
Reed further announced that
the runoff will be held somewhere
in the Chicago area, and the date
has been set at March 30.

When asked what the Big Ten
would do if Michigan State car-
ries through with its alleged boy-
cott, Reed replied, "We would
proceed with the two remaining
schools, of course,"
Michigan's coach Newt Loken
felt, "The Big Ten made the right
decision. I think that if I were
in Michigan State's position, I
wouldn't follow through with the
boycott."
Sam Bailie, Iowa's coach, when
told about the threatened boycott,
immediately responded, "Great,
then Newt and I have a better
chance." Then he added, "Seri-
ously, I honestly hope this doesn't
happen.
The dispute began when the

NCAA passed a rule allowing each
conference one entrant in the
NCAA gymnastics championship.
Previously, a regional meet was
held with all teams in an area
eligible to compete. Three schools
were advanced to the national
tournament from each of four
regions.
Last year, Michigan and Iowa
placed second and third respec-
tively in the nation under the old
system.
This year, it is impossible for
both teams to defend their rank-'
ings.
The 1968 Big Ten champion-
ships resulted in a three-way tie.
The tie resulted when Michigan
State won the conference meet,
with Michigan and Iowa falling
in place behind. This counted as
half the final standings. The dual
meets, which count for the other
half, resulted with the teams in
reverse order.
High Hopes
Because of the tie, the three
schools thought they would all be
able to compete nationally. How-
ever, they were informed by the
NCAA that only one school could
represent the Big Ten.
Michigan State thought it was
the school which should go. They
felt the NCAA rules stated that
the winner of the conference meet
is entitled to be the representa-
tive.

team All-American Mike Lewis,;
steamrollered cold-shooting Okla-,

opening round of the National In-
vitation Basketball Tournament.
The Blue Devils, with Lewis
and Joe Kennedy each scoring
seven points, jumped into a 14-7
lead and easily outdistanced the
Chiefs.
Extra Practice
Oklahoma City, in fact, was so
cold in the first half, hitting only
25.6 per cent, that Coach Abe
Lemons kept the club on the floor
and scrimmaged it during the in-
termission break, but it didn't
help.
Lewis, 6'7", 225-pound senior,
finished with 22 points. Rich
Travis, Oklahoma City's honor-
able mention All-American, who
hit only three of 15 shots from
the field in the first half, finished
with 28 points.

this reasoning. He asked the
NCAA for an interpretation. "We
were advised," he explained, "that
each of the conferences could des-
ignate its representative by its
own methods."
The Big Ten had agreed on its
own method for determining the
conference champion well before
the season began.
With this in mind, the Big Ten
athletic directors unanimously
approved at the conference meet-
ing last week to hold a playoff
between the three teams. Szypula,
however, contested the decision.'
The result was yesterday's con-
ference.

and Jacques L e m air e broke
through for first period goals last
night and goalie Gump Worsley

League .victory over the New York
Rangers.
The victory extended Montreal's
winning string to four straight
and the slumping Rangers' win-
less streak to the same number.
It also increased the Canadians'
first place margin in the East Di-
vision to eight points.
The veteran Provost and the
rookie Lemaire gave Worsley a
2-0 first period lead, Provost scor-
ing his 14th of the season while
the Rangers were shorthanded
midway through the period. Le-
maire got his 21st about five min-
utes later. Bobby Rousseau assist-

Flyers, Kings Tie
QUEBEC - The Philadelphia
Flyers and the Los Angeles Kings,
Labatt Agrees
To Purchase
NHL Seals
VANCOUVER, B.C. (P) - The
'inancially-troubled situation of
;he Oakland Seals came to a head
yesterday when a Canadian beer
firm agreed to buy the National
Hockey League team. The new
owners expect to move the fran-
chise to Vancouver.
The sale by a group headed by-
' Barry Van Gerbig to Labatt Brew-
eries is contingent upon the shift-
ing of the Seals to Vancouver
plus its approval by at least nine
of the other 11 NHL owners. The
agreed purchase price was not dis-
closed.
"Basically this calls for Labatt
to provide funds necessary for the
Seals to meet their present com-
mitments to the NHL," said N. E.
Hardy, president of the beer com-
pany. The club reportedly owes
the league $700,000 which must
be paid by May 15.
This season, Vancouver com-
pleted construction of a $6 mil-
lion building that seats 15,000
persons for hockey. It is being
used by the Vancouver Canucks
of the Western League.
Elsewhere
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia
Flyers may be forced to move their
National Hockey League fran-
chise if the Spectrum isn't re-
opened soon, according to Bill
Putnam, president.
,Putnam said the team may con-
sider moving its franchise out of
Philadelphia "if this thing isn't
resolved soon."
The Spectrum in South Phila-
delphia has been closed since
winds damaged its room March 1
for a second time. The Flyers and
the Philadelphia 76ers, eastern
division champions of the Nation-
al Basketball Association, have
I been forced to find new home.

The Flyers, an expansion team
in their first NHL season, are

sion and bidding for the Stanley
