again (without the help of the
good fairy). They are too good of
a team to slip like they did before.
Michigan State coach George
Szypula concedes that his team is
out of the running, but Doesn't
count Iowa out. "Michigan's tram-
poline score is tremendous, and
without it the meet for the NCAA
representative will be very close
between Michigan and Iowa. I
have to call it a toss-up."
Illingis coach Charles Pond, on
the other hand, is entbusiastic
MeCurdy takes
all-around lead
Michigan's Rick McCurdy nailed
a one point lead yesterday in the
complsory all-around exercises
after the first day of the Big Ten
Gymnastics Meet in the Events
Building.
At the same time, the Wolver-
ine's top all-arounder, Sid Jensen,
flopped on the last event, the high
bar, and tumbled from first to
third.
McCurdy's 48.40 total put him
first to Iowa's Bob Dixon who
scored 47.35, Jensen with 45.85,
Rich Scorza, another Hawkeye,
who had 45.15 and Ohio State's
Bruce Trott with a 41.40 tally.
Michigan Coach Newt Loken
was very distressed with Jensen's
score after the meet. "While this
still means Jensen and McCurdy
will be able to compete in the
NCAA's,' he noted, "we will have
a hard time fighing off Dixon for
the Big Ten crown."
The conference all-around title
is awarded to the performer who
scores the highest total when
compulsory and optional routines
are added together. The optional
scores will be determined today.

about Michigan's chances, "Mich-
igan not only should beat Iowa,
in the preliminaries for the NCAA,
but they have a great chance to
take the NCAA title as well. They
have -the artistic elegance that
could take them to a national
championship; Iowa just doesn't
have it. Newt (Loken) has a real
fine team."'
Loken only remarks, "Iowa was
very annoyed that they were
beaten before and will really be
fired up."
One thing is certain, however.
The Wolverines will also be
charged up and have been polish-
ing their routines all week in the
Events Building. The home ad-
vantage will be tremendous.
The preliminaries today will r'ot
only pick the NCAA representa-
tive, but also determine the final-
ists for the Big Ten competition
on Saturday afternoon. The top
three teams will battle for the
title, which again narrows to a
fight between Michigan and Iowa.
This time, however, the Hawk-
eyes are only 5 given an outside
chance. Dave Jacobs and company
should clinch the championship
for the_ Wolverines, by virtue of
the trampoline. Coach Pond sim-
ply states, "It will be all Michi-
gan."
Michigan State and Illinois will
both be content to settle for third.
The other teams will .merely show
up for the meet.
Climaxing the action will be the
individuals finals to be held Sat-
urday night. The top six competi-
tors from each event will vie for
individual championships. The
winners will journey to Seattle,
where they will be given a chauce
to take NCAA individual Cham-
pionships as well. This meet could
prove to be the most exciting of
the weekend, as only top perform-
eis will be in contention.

* PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -- Vince Lombardi said he finds "in
triguing" the idea of a best two-out-of-three games for the champion-
ship in the pro football Super Bowl.
But the new coach and general manager of the National League's
Washington Redskins, asked for comment yesterday during a break
in the NFL-American League joint meeting, said such a possibility
does indeed pose problems.
"I kind of like the idea," said the former Green Bay boss, "be-
cause of the competitiveness it would afford between the two 'leagues.
"And I can visualize great interest by the public in such a series.
It would be great for the fans."
