One of this year's additions to
the Michigan basketball team is
a "Bird" that flys high.
Rich Carter - nicknamed Bird

a serious handicap. "I'm a natural
jumper. I can't muscle anyone, so
I have to outthink them. I play
a strong fundamental game."

I was very impressed by the fable about The Power by As-
sociate Sports Editor Bob Lees published on January 9. It was a
very clever story, and I enjoyed it very much.
It is such a good story that I almost can't blame Mr. Lees
for not saying that he didn't write the story. The story was
originally written in a slightly different form by Fredric Brown
and published in his book, Nightmares and Geezenstacks. It's
been a long time since I read the original story, and I'm not sure
of the title, but I think it was named "The Power."
At any rate, it's pretty sad when a college newspaper has to
resort to plagiarism.

That's the letter (edited just a bit). And do you know something?
Mr. Cornfeld is absolutely correct. I read that story-or rather I re-
read it-during semester break when I was abed with the flu. Mr.
Cornfeld and I seem to share similar literary interests, as I discovered
when I talked to 'him on the phone, and both of us had bought-the
Brown book many years ago, when a good paperback could be had
for 40 cents.
Anyway, Mr. Cornfeld is not alone in his discovery-and in-
dignation. Several other students have approached me the past few
days about the same topic, much to my delight and interest. For I
had several reasons for writing (or should it be "plagiarizing?") that
One, the one that my staff was interested in, was recruiting.,
As the title said, I was trying to drum up interest in joining the
sports staff. I'm still drumming up interest in the sports staff.
We have good writers and editors now; we'd like lots more. If
you're interested in working with us, let us know. Call up 'the

The other reason was kind of personal. You see, I've always been
a kind of nut about science fiction and fantasy literature, and I'ves
been convinced that a large segment of the population here are, too.
There's a course now in Fantasy Literature, in which I am enrolled,
that demonstrates much interest in such topics. The response I've
been getting from Mr. Cornfeld and others indicates that there is
At one point I felt that there were just a very few people in-
terested in this "junk," as my mother calls it.
Now I don't feel so lonely.
