Zaitzeff stormed to a 3-0 lead,

Epkins appeared to strengthen
in the early part of the second set,
but so did the Wolverine and it
didn't take too much extra effort
for Michigan to chalk up its
fourth victory of the day.
In the closely-played first
singles, Michigan's Jon Erickson
Ndueled Iowa's defending cham-
pion, Art Andrews, to the finish
to take a well-played 9-7, 6-4 vic-
tory. Andrews was seeded number
one and the Wolverine captain,
number two.

Andrews played slower as the

momentum and evened the count

shots count and he came up with
a well-deserved victory.

The last singles victory was

Fulton seemed to be in trouble

his poise and kept the ball at his

TURN PLEASE - These nurses are using a foster frame to turn "patient" Poann Ricciardi over
onto her stomach. The frames are used to turn the patient as a unit. It is easier and more- com-
fortable for a patient with a spinal injury, or infantile paralysis to turn in "one piece" rather than
"in parts." In order to lift her onto the frame, three or four nurses use a special type of carry.

The University Medical Center
held a Doctor's Day and Hospital
Day weekend at the outpatient
building of the hospital last week.
"On Saturday, about 250 doc-
tors came to the Center from all
parts of Michigan," Dr. Earl
Wolfman, chairman of Doctor's
Day said.
In the morning they saw 80 ex-
hibits of modern equipment used
in the hospital. The day-long pro-
gram also included reviews of cur-
Tent research activities, special
clinics in each department, closed
circuit television broadcasts of
surgical procedures and tours of

Mother Nature put an abbrevi-

Too Smug? -No Smog ?
IS THE BIG TEN being a mite too smug about it all? That well could
be the opinion of the Pacific Coast Conference soon to be reduced
to the four-team Western Association Conference.
And the far westerners certainly would be justified in their opin-
ion after the ludicrous situation the Big Ten has gotten itself into
with this weekend's vote on "the grand-daddy of them all" - the
Rose Bowl.
After two years of constant haggling ("will we or won't we?")
the showdown came in a not-so-smoke-filled room in the Michigan
Union. There the faculty representatives, preciously bearing their
school's wishes and determined to sway not an inch from their pre-
assigned mission, divided perfectly - five for it and five agin it.
And when is a tie not a tie? Only in the Big Ten, fans. The split
killed the present pact as everyone knew would happen before the
doors were ever shut on the public. But when the doors were opened
some four hours later-be gosh and begorra-she wasn't dead at all.
It's unfair and inaccurate to claim that a "joker" had been
stashed away for the occasion. It just proved that where there's a
will, there's a way or that the needle under the hay wasn't so dog-
goned hard to find after all.
Regulation I, Section 2, paragraph 3 in the Big Ten handbook
proved to be the needle. It states in essence that all post-season com-
petition for Big Ten members is verboten - except the Rose Bowl.
Well, whaddaya know! "We five can go out there and bet the Pacific
Coasters some more!" exclaimed the pros in unison.
"Those five can go out there and beat the Pacific Coasters some
more and our principles remain immaculate!" exclaimed the cons in
But can you imagine Ohio State saying, after they've won the Big
Ten title in 1963, "Gee, thanks, fellows for the invite, but we decline
because our faculty says we musn't accept. Now we know a fine school
up the road apiece in Michigan that finished second and would just
love to go. Why don't you ask them if they would like to play?"
Go check the records to see what happened at Champaign, Illinois
back in 1946. Having gone on record to oppose a Rose Bowl contract
and all it stands for, the Illini cordially accepted to play that same
year saying, "If the Conference wants us to go, why, then by all means
we must do what's best for the Conference." They went, they saw
roses, and conquered-ethics be damned.
But while the Big Ten debates whether to honor the West Coast
with their presence, has anyone checked lately to see whether they're
such desirable guests in the eyes of the hosts.?
Typical was the comment by one western athletic director who
opined that maybe the breaking of the contract wasn't such a bad idea
after al. Now the coast could ask whom they wanted and wouldn't be
obligated in any way to look to the Big Ten.
Family bickering about visiting someone else's home breeds little
more than contempt for the someone else. The Big Ten might pay for
its smugness.
