In the business of collegiate
diving, Big Ten schools control
th emarket. And if last week's Big
Ten Relays are any indication of
relative strength, Michigan may
monopolize the Big Ten.
In the two diving relay events,
on the one and three meter
boards, Michigan springers led the
opposition with point totals of 370
and 390, capturing two firsts.
Michigan State and Wisconsin
displayed fine performances, as
Spartan divers placed second on
the high board, third on the low.
The Badgers finished with a
fourth and a second in the same
off its usual high mark, the Hoos-
iers making a third and fourth,
while Ohio State never material-
ized into an anticipated<threat.
Although Hoosier diving ace Jim
Henry was unable to compete in
the Relays, Indiana Coach Doc
Counsilman admitted, "We don't
have as much depth in diving
that we used to."
To back up his leading divers,
Kimball can call on sophomore
divers Jim Creede and John Ham-
ilton, and on several developing
frosh. This plethora of talent
should cause quite a bit of com-
petition among divers as e a c h
fights for a position on the team
to participate in the NCAA's.
The major reason for a team
of such depth and skill is the
presence of Coach Kimball, an
exceptional trainer and a superb
athlete. Like many of Michigan's
coaches, Kimball starred for the
Wolverines by taking the- NCAA
diving championship in 1957, and
remained an All-American for
three more years. In 1963 he was

" MELBOURNE, Australia - Stan Smith, top ranked United
States tennis led an American charge into the second round yesterday
at the Victorian Open championships.
Smith, of Pasadena, Calif., who was elevated to the No. 1
ranking on Monday, got by Australian Barry Phillips-Moore, 12-10,
6-3, 6-4.
Other Americans advancing were Jim McManus and Bob Lutz.
McManus of Berkeley, Calif., ousted Aussie Bob Carmichael, 6-3, 6-4,
6-3. McManus beat Carmichael for the Tasmanian singles title Sunday.
Lutz, of Los Angeles, beat Vladimir Zedniz of Czechoslovakia,
6-2, 6-4, 6-1, Dennis Ralston of Bakersfield, Calif., led 12-10, 6-3, 6-6

" BADGASTEIN, Austria - Unheralded Ingrid Lafforgue led
the French on another victory run yesterday when she won the Silver
Jug slalom as her more .well-known teammates were disqualified.
Marilyn Cochran of Richmond, Vt., did "did not like my two
runs at all," made up for an attack of falls by her U.S. teammates
and took fourth place while Rosi Fortna of Warren, Vt., took
seventh and Susan Corrock of Seattle was eighth.
Miss Lafforgue, taking over for French World Cup leader Michele
Jacot who fell after pacing the first run, flashed down the two
tracks in 87.81 seconds on an excellent track which held up for
most of the field of 108 girls.
Betsy Clifford of Canada, 16, was second in 89.22, 42.32, 46.90 and
Dominique Matthier of France third in 89.70, 42.71, 46.99. M is s
Cochran's time was 89.79, 43.13, 46.66.
" AUSTIN, Tex.-Texas quarterback James Street, was named
Monday night as the player who meant the most to the 1969 national
championship Longhorn football team.
Street, a 175-pound senior who was completely neglected on the
all-American teams, was selected by his teammates as the most
valuable player in the Longhorns' 11-0 season.
Street, who has guided Texas to 20 straight victories over the
past two seasons and never suffered a loss as a Longhorn starter, also
received the D. Harold Byrd Leadership Award.
Texas Coach Darrell Royal, the winningest coach in the South-
west Conference, says Street "is a great winner."

JUNIOR DICK RYDZE is one reason why Michigan may end
Indiana's supremacy in collegiate diving. The Wolverine ace diver
paced Michigan victories in both the one and three meter board
events at the Big Ten Relays last weekend.

AS A COACH, he was chosen
in 1964 as U.S. Olympic Men's
Diving Coach, and in 1969 be-
came the AAU's Diving Coach of
the Year.
During the summer, Kimball
runs a diving school and clinic
in Florida, where diving aspirants
come from all parts of the coun-
try to attend his sessions, num-
bering up to 140 at times. D i c.k
Rydze, Al Gagnet, Jim Creede
and other Michigan divers made
their start in Kimball's school.
"Because of our depth, we en-
tered five divers in the two events.
Everyone came through with a
superb performance," commented
Kimball. "We practiced hard ov-
er the Christmas break, and we
were ready. Everything turned out
Part of their success could be

attributed to being at home, and
knowing the feel of the boards.
But most of the credit lies with
divers, and especially with junior
Dick Rydze.
Rydze is a champion diver, one
of the b e s t in the country. He
captured the tower event in last
summer's AAU's, and finished
third on the three meter board in
the NCAA's last year. In the Big
Ten relays he participated in both
events, and was Michigan's out-
standing scorer.
"DICK IS REALLY coming into
his own on the springboard, after
mastering the tower," said Kim-
ball of his talented ward. "He has
more strength now and carries his
dive completely through. H i s
greatest assets are his consistent

There was a Land named Yliad,
and it lay near the region of
Dranyam. And near the region of
Dranyam lay a mighty desert
which was known by the people
thereabouts as Azalp Selpoep, and
the people were of the tribe of
Ffats Strops, and the Tribe of,
Tide, and the mighty warriors of
Ssenisub who were so mighty that
the ground trembled in their pre-
sence, and inches fell to myster-
ious plagues such as that called
Near the Azalp Selpoep there
lay a vast structure, and t h e
people lived in fear of the struc-
ture and called it the Niotartsin-
imda Gnidliub, and they avoided

it's nearness for fear of t h e
mightly Stneger, who were a tribe
so fierce that they were able to
levy many taxes upon the hapless
people of the Yliad.
IT CAME TO PASS that t h e
tribe of Stneger were engaged in
many battles with faraway craz-
ed members of the Slacidar, and
the Slacidar served the people,
and many of the members of the
Yliad tribe also owed allegiance
to the Slacidar.
Now the chief of all the Stneg-
er people was one called by the
name of Gnimelf, who lived in a
mighty fortress on the plain of
U Htuos, and had many fierce
men who spread pestilance among

the people. Now this chief was a
man so immense that it was said
of him that he could wind t h e
mightiest loin cloth, but once
around his vast thighs, and that
he could give pleasure to thirty
virgins on a single night.-
And Gnimelf was much feared
by the people, and he kept many
eunuchs to speak to the people
and the eunuchs were fierce men
and ugly, and the chief eunuch
was a man named Hcirlu w h o
was, it was said, a man of books,'

houses, and theyx had to bring
many sheep, she asses and goats
to pay the taxes, and the name
of Hcirlu was hated by the people
of the Yliad tribe, and by all the
people, each in equal part.
Now the people were sore op-
pressed, but a message from the
heavens gave them hope. It was
delivered by the people of the
Yliad on the Strops Egap, which
was a communication of the time,
and resembled tablets, carved into
scrolls. And the epistle, announced
a wonderous occurance, a new

people of the Yliad o'ut of the

Luciferase, an enzymatic protein
with 'intriguing properties obtain-
able only from fireflies. Luciferin,
an organic molecule also found in
fireflies, but synthesizable. Adeno-

energy-yielding substance found in
all living cells.
Those are the three main ingre-
dients in lampyridae's love light.:
And because ATP is common to all
living cells, university researchers.
discovered they could produce an

artificial glow by mixing luciferin
and luciferase wherever life is.
Noting that phenomenon, Du Pont
scientists and engineers went on
to develop it into a practical ana-
lytical system. Correlating the iri-
tensity of the artificial "glow" with
the amount 'of ATP present in
bacterta, they designed a means of
measuring the reaction.
The result is the luminescence
biometer-the first really basic im-
provement in bacteria-counting
methods since the time of Louis
Pasteur. Rather than waiting days
for a culture to demonstrate growth
density, a doctor or technician can

now get a digital readout of bacteria
concentration in amatterof minutes.
Other potentially lifesaving uses
for the biometer are being sug-
gested every day-such as diagnos-
ing metabolic rates, enzyme de-
ficiencies and nerve damage.
Innovation-applying the known
to discover the unknown, inventing
new materials and putting them to
work, using research and engineer-
