western Conference sneaks into preseason poiis


Associate Sports Editor
Preseason pollsters have sud-
denly rediscovered the Big Ten.
After years of lambasting the
conference for slipping from its
former exalted plateau, the
analysts have picked no less than
four --count 'em, four - Western
squads on their various Top Ten
listings. So this should be the
year for all the conference schools
to raise their collective heads high
and re-proclaim their membership
in the elite group.
All, that is, except for North-
The poor Wildcats, actually a
better team than a year ago, have

first five games against - hold

the humble opinion of this sports-
writer that, should coach Alex

For every one of those. five is
listed on at least one Top Ten
poll, and the middle three are ex-
pected to fight it out for the top
three positions in the country.
Purdue, of course, along with
Big Ten rivals Indiana, Ohio
State, and Minnesota, need no
real introduction to Wolverine
fans. They all showed great
strength last year, they all put
on a tremendous struggle for the
1967 conference crown, and they
all have an outstanding crop of;
returnees and sophomores. In
fact, they all might make a major'
Top Ten list this season, except
for. the fact that they all play
each other. And the wire services
have a disconcerting habit of dis-
counting teams who lose games.
The Trojans of USC. of course,;
might settle this problem of top
billing quite easily by dragging
the title out west. O.J. Simpson
is back, along with coach John
McKay's usual collection of junior
college transfers.. Yet any team
which has five of its starters pick-
ed in the first round of the pro
draft is bound to feel the effects
of graduation.

To the east of these Pacific
contenders are several teams em-

holding three. Tops is Texas,
which was racked by injury last
year, but still has a strong of-

LOS ANGELES (P) - "School-
girl Debbie Meyer combined sta-
mina with her speed yesterday to,
smash her third world record in
five days by swimming the rugged
800-meter freestyle race in 9 min-
utes 16.4 seconds at the United
States women's Olympic swimming
The tremendous performance in
the metric half-mile came during
preliminaries at the Los Angeles
Swim Stadium when eight young
ladies qualified for the.. evening
Debbie, 16, shattered her official
world mark of 9:22.9 set a year
ago in the Pan-American Games
at Winnipeg, Canada, and her
pending record of 9:17.8 in her
home pool of Arden Hills near her
Sacramento, Calif., home.
On Saturday, the blue-eyed
blonde bettered the world record
with 2:06.7 in the 200-meter free-
style and on Sunday she came
right back with 4:24.6 for 400
The top three finishers in each
final event qualify for the U.S.
Olympic team for October's inter-

100 years ago, people read the
way you're reading right now.
Word by word. About 300 or
so wvords a minute.
And 100 years ago, that kind of
reading didn't cause any"
problems. You could keep up
with what was happening
pretty well.
But today, our knowledge is
exploding so fast that people
who want to keep ahead are
actually falling behind. There's,
simply too much to read. Too
much homework. Too many
magazines. Too many books.
Too many reports and memos.
What's the solution? Learn
how to read faster and better.
You can do it, too. So far over
400,000 other people have done it.
People with different jobs,
different IQ's, different interests,
different educations. Students,
businessmen, housewives.
These people have all taken a
course developed by Evelyn

Wood, a prominent educator.
And all of them have at least
tripled their reading speed with
equal or better comprehension.
Most have increased it even more.
Some have increased it 10, even
20 times.
Think for a moment what
that means.i
All of them-even the slowest-
now read an average novel in less
than two hours. They read this
ad in 8 seconds. They read an
entire issue of Time in 15
Theydon't skip or skim, either.
They read every single word.
Nor do they use machines.
Instead, they let the material
they're reading determine how,
fast they read.
And-mark this well-they
actually understand more and
remember more and enjoy more
than when they read like you.
That's right. They understand
more. They remember more.

They enjoy more.
You can do the same thing-
even if you're a relatively slow
reader now. We guarantee it.
In fact, if you don't at least triple
your reading speed with equal or
bet ter comprehension, the course
won't cost you a thing.
This is the same course
