Seymour tackles name fame

Olympic diving judges blasted

Phil Seymour does not care
much about who won the election,
maybe because things like that
tend to get obscured by the much
more resounding triumphs of the
Wolverine football team.
Although he, won't single out the
Michigan defense as the key to
the team's campaign success, Sey-
mour: is a member of a defensive
unit which has already intercep-
ted nine aerials. He is second on
the team in unassisted tackles,
racking up 44 in Michigan's sev-
en games and has made seven big

tackles involving losses or fum-
At 6'4", his 193 pounds have lots
of territory to hover. With his
lanky frame Seymour looks more
like a basketball star than a foot-
ball player. During the winter he
does play basketball in the Intra-
mural program.
From Berkley, a northwestern
suburb of Detroit, the starting de-,
fansive end is one-fifth of the
Seymour family football contin-
gent. "Two of my cousins play-
ed at Notre Dame, but they didn't
letter," he says. And then there
are his other two cousins, brothers
Paul, of the Wolverine frosh team,
and Jim, of Notre Dame.
"We all lived within a couple
of blocks of each other in Berkley,
when 'we were growing up," Sey-
mour notes, "but we don't see
much of each other anymore." At
Salesian High in Detroit he play-
ed his first two years as a defen-
sive end under Coach Glenn
Donahue. Then during his senior
year, he moved between t i g h t
end and linebacking.
On the Michigan freshman
team, he was switched back to de-
fensive end. He's been there ever,
siice, totaling up 202 playing min-
utes last year for a letter.

"Jim and I don't have a rival-
ry," he states. But then with an
amused smile he adds, "I get a
lot of that 'Jim- Seymour's cousin'
An economics major, he has
courses in English, history and
business law. One of his class-
mates said of him, "Although
everybody's trying to talk to him,
he doesn't talk back. When he's
called on, he just says the an-
swer. And he doesn't seem to fool
around a lot with the guys."
After graduation, Seymour, a
Sigma Alpha Epsilon junior,
would like to enter the business
school at Michigan. "I'd wanted
to be a lawyer, but now I'm think-
ing of business law," he explains.
Normally non-commital, he slips
out of his 'reticence, when the talk
turns to football. "I still g e t
nervous before a game," he says,
"but not as much. I guess it's the
"It's really impressive to come
out into the stadium the f i r s t
time. Now, it doesn't look as big."
With 101,000 fans watching as in
the Michigan State game, impres-
sive somehow sounds inadequate.

"On the ground you hear the
crowd as a unit. But in the Mich-
igan State game they were es-
pecially noticeable when Mich-
igan was going for the s e c o n d
touchdown," Seymour comments.
In summer, the football off-sea-
son, Seymour works. Between
hours as a file clerk for F i s h e r
Body last summer, he went out to
the golf course. "When I joined
,he football team, I was surprised
to find out the number of guys
who golfed. It's a good condition-
er," he says.
Michigan's drive for the roses
will rest on the continued ability
of the defense "to put on a real'
good rush," as Seymour says. "The
quarterback hasn't been having
time to pick out his receivers." And
Michigan's drive for the roses will.
rest also on quiet defensive ends
like Phil Seymour.
"You try naturally to look only
at the game- coming up," he says,
"but you can't help thinking of
the final game."
And Phil Seymour, like the rest
of the Wolverine fans, is hoping
that Michigan doesn't peak before
the race comes down to the final
fatal day.

Gymnastics team unveils
national title ambitions



Berenson scores six goals,
ties NHL single-game mark

Billed as perhaps the outstand-
ing gymnastics team in the coun-
try, the Michigan squad opened
its 1969 season in an intrasquad
meet last night.
Led by the ever running an-
nouncing of Coach Newt (Show-
man) Loken, the team put on an
impressive performance before a
crowd of over 150 people.
Judging from their routines,
many persons were led to com-
ment that "the Big Ten title is
already wrapped up."
Even though Michigan will be
hampered by the elimination of
the trampoline as an event in na-
tional competition, it is expected
they will still sweep the confer-
Outside of one trampolinist and
vaulter, Wayne Miller who grad-
uated, last year's team will re-
turn intact. Unlike last year, when
the team's problem was depth,
Coach Loken is unable to decide
which gymnast to use where.
A huge number- of sophomores
provide a pool for Loken to dip in.
Coupled with an extremely strong
returning core, the gymnasts
should be stronger in every event,
The strongest events for the
Wolverines probably will be the
rings, the parallel bars, and
vaulting. These three events were
very solid last year and will be
further bolstered by the sopho-
mores. The floor exercise also!

The high bar, one of the Wol-
verines' problem areas last season,
should be much improved. The
gymnasts' nemisis, the side horse,
won't exactly be Michigan's
strongest event, but it should be
able to hold its own. If the sophs
in this event can live up to their
billing, it might be one of the
team's unexpected bonuses.

Smith, who at one time or
another coached six of the 11
divers on the team in their pre-t
Olympic days, said Russell was the
last diver and "had a chance atk
even a gold medal, if he got some
nines and eights.
"He knew he was not in the
favor of the judges," said Smith.
"He knew he had to come backc
from a sub par dive just before."l

The original record was set by

DETROIT - Alex Delvecchio
scored twice last night to lead
the surging Detroit Red Wings to
a 5-2 National Hockey League
victory over the Minnesota North
The Wings spotted the North
Stars a fast lead by Danny Grant,
who turned in Claude 4.Rose's
pass at 1:32 of the )first period
and didn't get a shot themselves
until 51/2 minutes had elapsed.
But then Detroit got in gear
and now has won four and tied
one of its last six games.
The Wings accomplished most
of it with- Gordy Howe spending
nearly two periods on the bench.
Howe assisted on Delvecchio's first
goal, the go-ahead marker at
19:17 of the first period, for his
1,600th regular season point.
Then after one snift at the start
of the second period, he sat out
the remainder of the game. Howe
sustained a muscle spasm in his
back just after scoring his second
goal in Chicago Wednesday night.
