Why did Wayne Miller start
trampolining? To keep in shape
for diving, what else?
He started diving when he was
twelve, and never bounced until
his freshman year in high school.
At the age of sixteen, he won the
AAU Nationals in trampolining,
as well as theJunior Nationals in
trampoline and diving.
"I quit diving during that year
because I became good in tram-
polining all of a sudden, and it
was something I could be creative
in."
Again and Again...
The summer after he gradu-
ated from high school, Miller won'
the Nationals again, and again,
and again, and again. It got to
be monotonous.
He was National Trampoline
Champion six times as well as
being the first person to capture
all the "big six" titles in one
year - the Midwest Open, the
Big Ten, NCAA, AAU, Schuster
Cup, and the World Champion-

ship-all won when he was a
sophomore.
As unlikely as it seems, the
tramp hasn't been his whole life.
In high school, Miller played foot-
ball and as a senior, was named
to the All-Conference team in his

"In trampolining you have to perform
much the same as an ice skater; artistic value,
appreciation, continuity, all these things must,
be considered.

Our team has a lot of different
spectrums, and I have to try to
s keep everyone happy, although
lthis is impossible. Being the cap-
tain is not a popularity contest."
lAs far as post-graduate plans are
concerned, Miller has definite

Turned Trampolinist
"In trampolining you have to
perform much the same as an
ice skater; artistic value, apprecia-
tion, continuity, all these things
must -be considered. I'd like to go
into the physiological aspects of
sport, the kinesiology of a per-
formance," explains Miller.
As far as records go, Miller has -
had his share of championships,'
but he is also the only person who
can do a triple-twisting forward-;
two-and-a-half (a trick which has
appropriately been named the
"Miller")
Multiple Twisting Manipulation
"All the records can be iiproved,
the equipment's getting better,
there are new training techniques,
yet no one else has been able to
do this trick. Perhaps this could
be my doctoral thesis - explain-
ing just what goes on during the
multiple twisting manipulation,"
Miller states.
Coach Loken has nothing but
praise for Miller. "Wayne is a real
master technician in the art of
trampolining. He"s the outstand-
ing multiple twisting somersaul-
ter in the country and actually in
the world. We'll all miss him very

home town of Lafayette, Louis-
iana. He even had offers to play
for a few colleges, but wisely ig-
nored them.
Deciding the trampoline was
more his line, he chose Michigan
as the place to pursue it. As cap-
tain of the 1967-68 gymnastic
team, Miller has had the great
responsibility of uniting a diverse
and very individualistic team. "I
think of myself as a person try-
ing to keep a good cohesive group.

WOLVERINE TRAMPOLINE CAPTAIN WAYNE MILLER, heads
downward after executing a fliffis during the last dual meet of
the season. Miller, who was world trampoline champion as a
sophomore, leads the best trampoline team in the nation.
SPORTS BULLETS:
Baseball Split Feared
By The Associated Press
* MIAMI-With the American League expanding to 12
baseball teams next year through the addition of the Seattle
and Kansas Ciy franchises, a near future clash looms if the
American League splits down the middle while the National
League stands pat.
Skirting the issue momentarily in a pair of no decision
sessions on expansion during an executive council meeting Wed-
nesday, the two leagues announced afterwards they would meet
separately next month to plot courses for -the 1969 season.
The American League reportedly favors a two division set-up
with a pennant playoff to determine its World Series represent-
ative. An AL playoff could raise havoc with the final webk of a
10-team NL race unless some scheduling balance can be agreed
upon. Or unless the National League which has voted to expand
not later than 1970, makes its move next year to keep in step.
! BALTIMORE-The end of the National Basketball Associa-
tion season brought the best news of all to the Baltimore Bullets.
Rookie sensational Earl "The PEARL" Monroe won't be going
into the Army, after all, because of physical reasons according
to General Manager Buddy Jeanette.
Monroe, a shoo-in for NBA rookie of the Year honors,
scored 46 points against Philadelphia but fell nine short of
becoming the fifth first-year player in league history to hit
2,0oo.
* NEW YORK-Italy's Nino Benvenuti was named Fighter
of the Month by Ring Magazine Thursday for his upset decision
victory over Emile Griffith in their middleweight title bout in
New York last March 4.
