BEFORE YOU 'SIGN THAT LEASE,
CHECK, THIS:

Jioddle
By JERRY CLARKE
A tough act to follow.
That phrase is perhaps most
thought of in a show business con-
text, but it certainly applies to
the offensive unit of last year's
football team. Led by Ron John-
son and Dennis Brown, neither of
whom will return next year, that
team amassed over 27 points a
game en route to a surprisingly
successful season.
It will be the job of h ea d
coach "Bo" Schembachler a n d
his staff to erase the memory of
that team from the minds of
Wolverine supporters. Despite be-
ing left a large number of exper-
ienced players, they do not expect
to find this an easy task. In the
words of offensive' coordinator
Jerry Hanlon, the chief problem,
will be "right up the middle,"
where Michigan finds it greatestt
lack of experience.
The problem begins at center,
where Tim Killian will attempt tok
make the adjustment from line-
backer. The coaches are pleased
with the progress he is making,
but emphasize that he has a lot
to learn about the new position.
When Killian snaps the ball, he
will be giving it to a basically in-
experienced quarterback who will
have to develop quickly if he iss
to lead the attack effectively. Don
Moorhead and Jim Betts are the'
two leading candidates for thej
job, with Moorhead having limited
game experience at the position
and Betts even less. Both have the
potential to be fine quarterbacks
but must overcome the lack of ex-
perience to be successful.
The fullback, Garvie Craw, pre-
sents a different sort of a ques-
tion. A starter last year, he was

MOLIMI
- ......BobLees
A return .. .
to say goodbye
A couple of days ago a guy came up to me in the UGLI and
shouted, "A molimo is a pygmy crisis ceremony!" I just kind of nodded
and smiled,
He was right, of course.
It's been several months now since that weird stock head you see
above appeared on these pages. In that space of time, I have been
devoting my life to academe -- you know, booking, papers, and that
stuff, Of course, I haven't neglected Thursday night drinking bouts.
and there have been other diversions which have more than filled my
time. Ah, yes .
Anyway, as any - if any - devoted readers of these columns
know, sports has not been exactly my major preoccupation. Oh, when
I did covers, or wrapups, or straight features, they were mostly about
straight sporting events or people. They were fun, because that's what
sports is for the spectator: amusement. And that is essentially what
I tried to be in my stories: an interested observer, enjoying myself at
sporting events and trying to convey to readers the interest and ex-
citement I found-
My columns were something else. i have tried in these dou-
bleset lines to express feelings, events, and ideas I have, about the
world in general, some interesting people I know, or anything
which might strike responsive chords in people. .
Because, you see, that is more the essence of the molimo. My
roommates and I like to Joke around about -the molimo being a
phallic-type symbol -- and in fact the pygmies of the Congo:
jungle do use a long, hollow tube to help represent the spirit of
the molimo. But that's Just the physical symbol.
The, spirit of the molimo ceremony - which goes on nightly
among the pygmies for months during the molimo season -- is one of
life, of joy to be alive and at peace with one's environment. At that
time, the pygmies give thanks to their rain forest for providing them
with a bountiful existence, and everyone joins together in affirma-
tion of their togetherness in this symbolic harmony.
h~e pygmies love life; they live it fully and happily, never taking
more from their environment than they need. No one who takes more
than his share, either from the forest or from the community, is tol-
erated. And the molimo ceremonies, which are celebrated at impor-
tant times in the lives of community members as well as during the
molimo season, are a continual affirmation of their joyous life.

After a sunny trip down south
this past weekend, where the
Michigan tennis team convincing-
ly trounced Purdue 9-0 and Illi-
nois 8-1, the netters were ushered
back~ to a constant drizzle which
will hamper their practice for im-
portant matches with Wisconsin
and Northwestern this weekend.
Yesterday's drizzles forced the
netters to slip b a c k inside the
dreary IM field house where they

proceeded to smash some balls.
Although the field house w a s
dimly lit and agonizingly stuffy'
the playful confident spirit of the
team was not stifled.
Tennis Coach Bill Murphy was
pleased with the attitude of the
team and feels that "they have a
decent shot at the Big Ten crown."~
Purdue, who finished last in the
Big Ten last season, showed little
improvement this year and t h e
Wolverines encountered few dif-

ficulties in mowing down the
Boilermakers.
The only loss -against the Illini
on Saturday was suffered by Dick
Dell who took three sets before
b o w i n g to a determined Ed
Thompson..
Thompson seems to have devel-
oped into a nemesis for the net-
ters. Two years ago he gave Dell
a scare before falling in three sets
and last year he chalked up the
only Illinois victory against the
Wolverines when he_ b e a t Pete'
IFishbach.
In the second singles slot Fish-
bach defeated Chip Clements 6-4,
6-3 in a hard fought match.
Brian Marcus had some trou-
ble in the second set but fought
back to beat Tom Dunlap 6-1, 4-6,
6-3.
IAlthough the netters ran into
some difficulties with the singles
Imatches, the doubles team worked
beautifully. Marcus and Fishbach
downed Thompson and Clements
6-4, 6-0, Mark Conti and Dell wal-
loped their opponents 6-1, 6-0, and
Jon Hiainline and Dan McLaughlin
took the third doubles 6-2, 6-3.
Murphy's main concern was
Iwith their upcoming matches. Wis-
consin and Northwestern a n d
Michigan ar'e rated as the top
teams and the outcome of t h e
matches could indicate the even-
tual Big Ten champ.

Spring, my wacky friends, drinking -. these are some of the hap-
py topics I have chosen to write about. They aren't sports topics,
to be sure, but to me they were worthy,
So that's what MOLIMO means. As far as the column title as a
whole goes -- well, my roommates and I have been jointly and singly,
known as The Truckin' Molimos for several years now. We first heard
the story of the molimo in an introductory anthropology course, and
it took us by storm. It wasn't long until we too had our, molimo stick,
and went around bellowing the spirit of the rain forest.
The Truckin' bit isn't as complicated. Have you ever heard an
old-time dirty folk song called "Truckin' Mama?" Well, as a country
boy, I had first heard it years ago in the hills of West Virginia. Dono-
van, though, cleaned it up and sang it on his Catch the Wind album.
The first lines in this bowdlerized version go:
Just keep on truckin', mama, truckin' your blues away!
Keep on truckin', mama, truckin' till the break of day.
You can imagine, if you like, what the real words were like. Just
try it out on your old kazoo sometime.
So that's the story of The Truckin' MOLIMO. I've had fun, writ-
ing just about what I wanted to, as well as meeting some fabulous
people, especially within the sports scene. And this, my senior year,
has truly been a fulfillment of my undergraduate scene,
But that's it for now.
Keep on truckin'..
