THE MICHIGAN DAILY TIITJRSDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1967

CLARK NORTON
Whatever happened to demented quaddies.
Has even this last bastion of dementia disappeared from the
campus comminity. Is the quad no longer a testing ground for
the Institute of Social Research. Will housemothers have died in
vain.
I recently held a contest through this column which offered a
prize to the reader who could find the most mistakes in an imaginary
basketball game, a ploy designed to elicit "Letters to the Editor."
After plowing through a veritable trickle of answers, a winner has
finally emerged from the rubble. But it would have been embarrass-
ing if I'd offered a prize to the top three contestants. Michigan has
crowned as many homecoming queens as my contest had entries.
But that was almost to be expected. I couldn't get over two
letters if I was Santa Claus. The surprising thing is that not one
quaddie blew his mind trying to win the two free pizzas from
Cottage Inn, two Michigan Theatre tickets, and a giant bottle
of vitamin pills. Maybe I should have offered an all-expenses
paid week in Auditorium D.
The winning entry was submitted by Ronald Gerard, a law stu-
dent, who located 22 mistakes. Gerard should make a good lawyer,
because there were only 19 in all. Actually Gerard correctly spotted
15 errors, managing to invent a few of his own, but finished well
ahead of his nearest (and only) competition.
For those red-eyed quaddies who may still be locked in the library
attempting to find the mistakes, here they are:
1. "Stretch" Murphy's first name was Charles, not William.
2. Murphy's college coach was "Piggy," not "Porkie" Lam-
bert.
3. Johnny Wooden is the present coach of UCLA, not USC
4. Duke Slater was an All-American football player, not
basketball.j
5. Slater was famed for not wearing a helmet, rather than
socks.
6. Cazzie Russell was not nicknamed "Old 98" (Tom Har-
mon was).
7. Jerry Lucas' hometown was Middletown, not Middleton,
Ohio.
8. Terry Dischinger's name is not spelled "Dishinger."
9. Walt Bellamy plays for the New York Knicks, not the
Baltimore Bullets.
10. Bellamy is 6'11", not 7 feet.
11. Dunking the ball is against the rules and would not count
two points.
12. The "crease'' is an area in ice hockey, not basketball.
13. Branch McCracken's first name is "Branch," his nick-
name "Doc," rather than vice-versa.
14. The institution is "Indiana University" rather than the
"University of Indiana."
15-16. Andy Phillip's name is not spelled "Philip."
17. The great Illinois team was the "Whiz Kids" rather than
the "Quiz Kids."
18. Jimmy Rayl went to Kokomo High, rather than Muncie
Central.
19. The length of a basketball game is 40 minutes, not 45.

national executive committee of Young
Socialist Alliance speaking on:

NEW YORK-Ted Hampson's
tie-breaking goal late in the sec-
ond period and a third period tally
by Paul Henderson carried the De-
troit Red Wings to a 3-1 National
Hockey League victory over the
New York Rangers last night.
Hampson broke a 1-1 tie with
just over two minutes remaining
in the second period, taking a pass
from Bert Marshall, using Ranger
defenseman Arnie Brown for a
screen and drilling a 40-foot
angled shot past goalie Gilles Vil-
lemure from the left side.
The third period was less than
1 1/ minutes old when Henderson
shot up the middle, passed to
Bruce MacGregor and took a re-
turn pass before drilling the wrap-
up goal from 30 feet out.
The Rangers spotted the Wings
a power play goal early in the sec-
ond period, then tied it on Bob
Nevin's tally at 16:08. Nevin fed
linemate Don Marshall along the
left boards, took Marshall's return
pass and beat Detroit goalie Roy
Edwards with a 40-foot drive.
