SBig Ten title

starting field of contenders for the
league title has now been reduced
to just four teams, Purdue, Ohio,'
State, Illinois, and Iowa.
Purdue, which has beaten Ohio
State and Iowa this past week,
now leads the league with an im-
pressive 5-.0 mark. The Boiler-
makers last two wins were de-
scribed by Purdue coach George
King as "must games for us."
"You just have to take those
home games," King continued.'
"Defeats in either one would have
seriously damaged our title hopes."
The Purdue coach credits this;
season's improvement over last1
year to better floor play from
centers Chuck Bavis and Jerry
Johnson and a stronger bench led
by guard Larry Weatherford and
forward Tyrone Bedford, who
started last season.'
Coaches Fred Taylor of Ohio
State and Ralph Miller of Iowa
both admit that Purdue has the
inside track at this point of the
season. "However," says Miller, "a
week from now they could have
two losses after their road games
with Northwestern Saturday and
Ohio State Tuesday."
In commenting on the past Ohio
State-Purdue encounter Coach
Taylor said, "I was extremely
pleased with the way the kids!
came back in the second half but
we were just too tired in the over-;
time period due to the pressure wei

The Ohio State coach refused
to predict the outcome of his
team's rematch with Purdue, but
admitted that "based on our per-
formance last Saturday we feel we
have a real good shot at them
this Tuesday, but we still have to
worry about Saturday's game at
Wisconsin. They're a tough team
Taylor openly states that the
play of Steve Howell has been
"going up and down like a roller
coaster. This has been our biggest
problem this year but if he fin s
himself it will be a great boost to
the team."
Iowa splits
Iowa came up with an impres-
sive 76-61 victory over Davidson
last Saturday but then failed
against conference foe Purdue
three nights later 99-87 as Boiler-
maker Rick Mount threw in a
career high 45 points. Coach Miller
described the defeat by saying,
"They just outplayed us, but we'll
be ready for them when they come
over here next month."
Recently Ben McGilmer was
moved into the starting five at
forward and Glenn Vidnovic was
switched from forward to guard
while Chris Phillips was benched.
Miller maintains that this move
"has helped our rebounding con-
siderably and has given our of-
fense a more consistent punch al-
though Phillips is a fine scorer.
"Vidnovic can play at any posi-
tion but since he is our floor lead-
er offensively I prefer to have him
at guard. McGilmer's rebounding
has helped in what was a weak
spot for us while averaging nearly
16 points a game as a starter."

DAVE SORENSON (15) of Ohio State attempts to rebound a
shot by Michigan's Bob Sullivan in a game played earlier this
season. Ohio State won 98-85 thanks to 31 points by Jim Clea-l
mons (35), his career high, and the accurate shooting of Soren-
son, who made 12 of 15 shots from the floor. The game was an
important victory for the Buckeyes who now occupy second place
in the Big Ten.

Professionalism at Grumman
.. is personal development programs
As a graduating engineer, how can you position yourself so that your career chances are con-
stantly optimized? Answer-get with an aerospace company where the optimum conditions are
.. Grumman. Here we take a keen interest in seeing that our engineers and scientists develop
personally. We are sincerely interested in their personal progress within the company . . . that
they keep abreast of the sweeping advances in technology, not because they can contribute more
(although this is true), but more because it makes for greater individual progress and well-being.
Job satisfaction, if you will. Let's l1ok at these personal development programs.

Tuition Reimbursement Program
Directly applicable to their work, these programs offer
engineers and scientists financial assistance for graduate
studies at the many institutions in the Long Island-New
York area.
In-Plant Courses
Engineering courses, particularly those not available at
neighboring institutions,.to deepen technical knowledge to
the specific needs of the engineering sections.
College-Industry Courses
Selective attendance for rapid technical updating on funda-
mentals, theoretical methods and design information. (One
to two weeks' duration.)
Engineering Masters Fellowship Program
To enhance creative design capability, one-year fellowships,
renewable for a second year, are warded to new engineering
Bachelor of Science graduates anh engineers with a year or,
more company service. The program combines two days of
graduate school study with three days of in-plant engineering
(in fixed or rotating assignments) and covers payment of full
tuition, books, fees, a stipend, and a salary at engineering hourly
rates for the hours worked.

Professional Development Programs
Lasting for 2 years, participants are given, in 4 six-months'
terms, an exposure to Grumman operations which broadens
their technical knowledge, sharpens ability to make sound
decisions, and raises their career potential. Separate programs
serve individuals in Business Systems, Engineering and
Senior Engineers' Program
Intended to overcome the threat of technological obso-
lescence, individual disciplines are updated with regard to
new scientific discoveries, new or expanded applications of
long existing knowledge, and computer applications to prob-
lem solving.'
Senior Management Development
Selected individuals within Grumman junior and middle
management groups are nominated to attend management
development programs such as the MIT Executive Develop-
ment Program, the Program for Management Development or
the Advanced Management Program at Harvard University.
Basic Principles of Supervisory Management
A series of discussion sessions provide a course in manage-
ment principles to group leaders who show technical manage-
ment ability.

The top three positions remain-
ed unchanged in last week's I.M.k
basketball action as Allen-Rum-
sey, Scott and Huber all defeatedt
their opponents. Allen-Rumseyk
buried Palmer 45-32, while Scott
c~oasted by Lewis, 32-13. Huber
wore down Mosher-Gold for a 45-E

Previously tenth-ranked Frost
dropped out of the standings as
they lost to Adams 54-25. Angell
moved up three spots to fifth' with
an upset win over Gomberg. In
a runaway, Kelsey beat Williams'
43-34, while Anderson upset Van
Duren 57-38.
Player of the week was B o b
Heyka of Angell House. In An-

gell's upset victory over G o m -
berg, the big center scored 19
points. Six of them were within
the last two minutes after Gom-
berg had tied the game.
