Downers Grove:
The Squeaky City
If American Airlines is the airline for the professional traveler,
it's no wonder so many businessmen have ulcers.
Arriving at Metropolitan airport some thirty minutes before my
flight to Chicago was to leave, I found something that moved slower
than a Michigan registration line. It's a student-rate ticket line.
Not only are the salesmen unable to divide by two to com-
pute the half fare, but they are unable to make more than one
distinct accomplishment each minute.
Twenty-five minutes and three customers later, I found myself
at the head of the line. Upon being informed by the courteous person
selling tickets that I could not possibly make my flight, I bought my
ticket, set new world's records in airport corridor dashing and air-
plane ramp leaping, and found myself panting in my seat.
I arrived in Chicago three minutes before I left Detroit (those good
old time zones), and proceeded by taxi to the budding metropolis of
Downers Grove.
Fifteen dollars and twenty conversation topics later, I directed the
cab driver up to the largest building of George Williams University
(no, neither of us had ever been there).
The glittering new campus showed that contrary to the Mich-
igan administration's opinion, eight buildings can be coordinated
into a common architecture. Further investigation revealed that
the college was named after the founder of the Y.M.C.A., and is
devoted largely to the essential task of producing tomorrow's
playground directors.
Meandering into the gymnasium, I was impressed by two things:
total disorganization and the smell of something new. Neither sen-
sation disappeared throughout the day. The disorganization came
from the college's inexperience in handling gymnastics meets, and
the smell came from the gym apparatus, none of which had been
used before.
l' Soon after my entrance, the
Michigan gymnasts sniffed their
1 i way into the building. They were
i shortly followed by those from
Iowa. They greeted each other cor-
dially, many knowing each other
r.from high school.
Michigan's Dave Jacobs was the
first one out. He jumped on the
trampoline which responded by
squeaking noisily. After thirty
minutes, he had traced most of
theunoisesand eliminated them.
One stunt, however, still brought
out a screech of anguish from the
Michigan's Coach Newt Loken
wandered among his team, try-
ing to get them "up'' for the
SZYPULA 'BEFORE, meet. But as one member noted,
"How can you get aroused for
this after not competing for a month? At least in the Big Ten
Meet we were fighting for survival. Today we aren't even that
hipped up about going to the nationals."
Things heated up rapidly . as Michigan State walked onto the
scene. Spartan Coach George Szypula, fresh from a threatened boy-
cott of the meet, marched around with a scowl that would unnerve
John Wayne. After cursory salutations to the coaches, he looked
around for something to argue about. It didn't take him long to
find it.
When the rings apparatus was set up, it was found that with the
straps at normal height, the rings were too close to the floor. The
straps were adjusted and with the rings at the proper height, the
,; straps were of the wrong length.
Michigan's and Iowa's coaches both agreed that the length of
the straps wouldn't appreciably alter the performances and agreed
to compete with the adjusted equipment. Szypula, still fuming from
previous arguments, stated that the adjusted apparatus was un-
acceptable. The Big Ten Games committee then met and decided
that the complaint was unwarranted. Poor Mr. Szypula.
After the teams looked at the equipment, they retired to the
locker room to dress. Iowa and Michigan shared one room and
Michigan State dressed in the other.
The meet soon began amid mass apathy. The three teams stood
up at their seats when introduced rather than making a grand
Michigan State showed its strength in the earlier events but
soon petered out on the trampoline and literally died after that. Iowa
jumped ahead of Michigan at the beginning, and as the meet pro-
gressed, the Wolverines found they were not quite able to close the
gap. The result was an Iowa victory.
For those who are interested in such mundane matters, the
scores were: Iowa, 189.80; Michigan, 187.60; and Michigan State,

The confusion unfortunately had still not ended. As the sun
* set behind the sidehorse, Coach Szypula could still be seen
screaming about the illegal rings and about life in general ....

With the taste of vitamin C stillj
lingering on their tongues; that
gloriousdcopper-bronze look still
surrounding their skin; and the
sting of a 1-9 record still haunting
their minds, the Michigan base-
ball team returns from Sunshine
Country to try to mare a new
start in their own backyard.
After the disastrous trips to
Tempe and Tucson to meet Ari-
zona State and Arizona, respec-
tively, they next face the Hurons
of' Eastern Michigan and the
Titans of the University of De-
troit the week after next.
The baseballers lost nine
straight before garnering their
first win of the young season.

He comes from a rugged American
background. And he's just come back
from where it's lively-London!
Good thing. Because all this in-
spired him to create the Bounder. Half
Indian moccasin. Half London ankle
boot. The only one of its kind.
He fashioned the Bounder with
the best of both worlds. With top grain
leather from toe to heel to ankle. With
a light flexible Tufsyn sole and hand-
sewn toe. A buckle or twin eyelets. And
smashing colours.
He made the Bounder for relax-
ing in . For stepping out. For whooping
it up. A sundance or moondance. A
jaunt. Or just doing whatever you jolly
well please.
