A second sophomore to compli-
ment the new team effort is Rod
Ford, a 6'4" forward from Ham-
mond, Indiana. In last night's
game he poured in 16 points and
gathered in nine rebounds, placing
him second on the team in both
categories for the game.
Ford led the team scoring as a
freshman with an average of 21
points per game and was noted for
his rebounding skill.
The third newcomer to the
Michigan lineup is junior transfer
Rich Carter. A 6'1" guard, Carter
transfered from Fort Dodge Junior
College in Iowa, where he aver-
aged 21 points and 11 rebounds
in his second year.
Nicknamed "Bird" because of
his weight and elasticity as a jum-
per, Carter is a versatile player in
both the front and back court and
has great quickness.
Carter is a product of North-
western High School in Detroit
where he played for Snowden.
Snowden was the deciding factor
in directing Carter's transfer.
As Snowden explained it, "Car-
ter visited several other schools
before he decided on Michigan-
schools such as Northern Illinois,
and the University of Iowa.
"He thought about coming here
last summer when we got to-
gether to talk about his future
"When he heard I was coming
to Michigan he decided he wanted
to come here also."

strong additions to the team this
year-most notably 6'2" guard
Dan Fife.
A standout both offensively and
defensively against Northern Il-
linois, Fife scored nine points and
made two rebounds. As a fresh-
man he was one of the two team
scoring leaders with an average
of 20.3 points per game.
Head coach John Orr spoke
highly of Fife's performance in
the 93-85 romp over the Huskies:
"I though he played a terrific
game, especially in handling their
guards. He told me before the
game he was tight, but he got
over his nervousness quickly."

Giusti was first acquired by St.
Louis in a trade with Houston just
after the past season but was
taken off the Cardinal roster by
the Padros in the expansion draft.
In the trade that returned him
to St. Louis, the Cards parted with
Ron Davis, who platooned with
Roger Maris in right field last
year, utility infielder-outfielder
Ed Spiezio and two minor leaguers
--pitcher Phil Knuckles and
catcher Danny Breeden.

The Cardinals also were invol-
ved in an even player exchange
with Boston, again acquiring a
pitcher, Gary Waslewski, whil
sending utility infielder Dic
Schofield to the Red Sox.
But the biggest trade in names
involved Versalles and Johnson,
two players who were on top o1
the baseball world three years ago.
Versalles moved to Cleveland and
Johnson to Philadelphia.

Senators sold for $9 million

Washington Senators Baseball
Club was sold yesterday to Robert
E. Short, Democratic Party na-
tional treasurer.
Short, former owner of the Los
Angeles Lakers of the National
Basketball Association paid a re-
ported $9 million for the baseball
team, which will remain in the
nation's capital.
Owners rejected a rival offer
by comedian Bob Hope for the
last-place American League club.
Frost confirmed reports of the
sale were "substantially correct."
Short, 50, is a Minneapolis ho-
tel and' trucking executive. He
handled the fund-raising to fin-
ance Hubert H. Humphrey's vice
presidential campaign.
James H. Lemon, Washington
investment banker, put the club
up for sale at the end of the sea-
The sale had been expected last

week but was delayed by a ninth-
inning offer from Hope.
Frost confirmed the Hope bid
was turned down yesterday.
The present owners will keep
the $1.05 million paid to the Sena-
tors for players drafted in t he
American League expansion next
year. Short will pay roughly $9
million for the club, giving the
present owners about $10 million
from the sale.
The sale will need court ap-
proval, since half the stock is held
by the estate of James Johnston
Lemon's investment partner wh
died last year. But the court okay
is expected to be routine.
In Washington, the Senators
play baseball's annual presidentia
opener and will be host next year
to the All-Star game.
