Cagers

By PHIL BROWN
Sophomore Rudy Tomjanovich
leads a talented contingent of
young forwards that might well
restore 'years-past' basketball
power to the University of Michi-
gan.
Last year's outstanding crop of
varsity rookies, hampered by a
la c k o f experience, suffered:
through a disappointing 8-16 rec-
ord. But with a full season behind'
them and the added punch of
Tomjanovich and his mates,
Coach Dave Strack's cagers could
effect one of the basketball
world's most astonishing come-
backs in recent history this sea-
son.
Returning from the '67 Wol-
verine squad will be Dennis Ste-
wart, Dave McClellan, Willie Ed-
wards, and Scott Montross. All
three saw considerable action as
sophomores last season. Along
with these regular forwards, Mich-
igan will be featuring a pair of
rotating guard-forwards t h i s
year.
Both Jim Pitts, at 6-3, and
Bob Sullivan, at '6-4, have the
ball-hawking, ability and strong
rebounding talent to play either
inside or outside, as a particular
situation may merit. Despite his
relatively small size, Pitts has
proven himself a giant on the
boards, and has the strength to
play under the basket with op-
ponents much taller.
Sullivan, an All-American guard
in prep school, may move per-
mantly to that post this season, I

Coach Al Renfrew unveils the 1967-68 edition of the Michi-
gan hockey team when he sends his icers against McMaster
University this weekend at the Coliseum. The inital faceoff oc-
curs at 8 p.m. Friday night with the final game of the series to
be played Saturday night at 8.
The Wolverines sport a tough returning defensive crew, in-E
cluding Captain Bill Lord, Paul Domm, Phil Gross, and goalie
Jim Keough. Bruce Koviak, Doug Galbraith, Ron Ullyot, and
sophomore Dave Perrin lead the offensive contingent.
Tickets for the contests are now on sale at the ticket office
8:30-5:30. They cost Michigan students halfabuck, staff the full
buck. General admission is $1.50 and reserved seats are $2.

handling and shooting to vastly
upgrade the record posted by the
1967 version of the Michigan
basketball team.
An extra asset for the Wolver-
ines will be the strength they
will enjoy on the bench. Michi-
gan will be able to send out a
second team almost as strong as
the starting five.
The new formula should help
to take advantage of the speed

it shall control the universe."

A strong rebounder, Edwards will
be a prime contender for one of
the three forward positions.
Pennsylvanian Stewart, a regu-
lar throughout most of the 1967
campaign, will be hard to displace
in the starting lineup this year.
A powerful rebounder, he has a
fine outside shot and is a danger-
ous passer.
Dave McClellan thrilled Michi-
gan rooters last year with his
special knack for the. 'extra' ef-
fort play. His timely rebounding
and long jumpers brought crowds
in Yost Field House to their feet
in numerous games. McClellan,
who started some games in '67,

Lawson, the team's tallest mem-

his rebounding and addedtsome

Michigan will give away valuable

Despite the rebounding ability

the type of team that completely
dominates board play. The new
system shouldrhelp the Wolver-
J nes to play 'position' ball, mov-
ing for the inside shots and jam-
ming up the middle for rebounds.
Stewart, McClellan and Tom-
janovich are all very good out-
side shooters, a fact that will force
opponents to cover them man-to-
man. This should give the Wol-
verines a distinct height advan-
tage outside, where they can as-
sault the bucket with long jump
shots.
Michigan's forwards will be
especially difficult to cover on
a man-to-man basis, largely be-
cause of their speed.

GRID SELECTIONS
Outgoing President Harlan Hatcher has agreed to help lay the
1967 Grid Picks to rest, serving as our final guest selector in this
final year at the University. Entries must be turned in to 420 May-
nard St. by midnight tonight in order to receive the prize of 100
tons of left-over tea, donated by an anonymous white-haired man
who quietly sobbed "I won't be needing it any more."
As he walked away, one could hear him mumbling, "I hope I
don't win. I'm sick of tea,"

The 35mm
ROLLS-ROYCE
Nikon F, the Rolls-Royce of the camera world, gives the amateur or professional the
most comprehensive and versatile 35mm photographic system available. Nikon F is
ready for applications in science, industry, law enforcement, education, as well as the
family hobby scene. Why? INTERCHANGEABILITY-The camera body inter-
changes with 30 lenses (8mm Fisheye to 1200mm super telephoto), 14 viewing
screens, and 4 finder systems (eye level, waist level, Photomic T, and new Photomic
Tn System). Add to this the multitude of precision accessories-slide copier adapter,
microscope adapter, electric motor drive, and much more!
H.
New
Nikon F
Photomic
Nikon F Photomic Tn features an instant open diaphragm, instant return mirror,
instant action previewer and new Photomic Tn thru-the-lens meter system. The Tn
system is more selective in that it measures the entire viewing screen but concentrates
about 60% of its sensitivity on 1/8 of the picture area. This center weighted response
compensates for possible exposure error due to natural brightness falloff on the screen
edges, especially with wide angle lenses. Nikon F Photomic Tn gives you the best of
everything and just a slight air of superiority.
New Nikkormat FTN
Nikon's medium-priced SLR. Features
behind-the-lens meter system with narrow
acceptance angle, improved, easily ASA setting
(no need to change each time you change
lenses), and improved focusing screen. Accepts
almost all Nikon lenses and accessories.
