well that I regard this meet as a{
win. Indiana had to go all out to'
beat us. They even put their num-
ber one man--Charlie Hickcox-
in the 200-yard butterfly to make'
sure that we wouldn't sweep the;
event. Indiana was scared that'
their Olympian Ron Jacks couldn't
do better than a third!"
Stager revealed some of the
strategy that brought Michigan so'
close to victory. The underdog'
Wolverines had to pick up points
somewhere, so Stager started his'
plans for an upset in the very first'
event.'
IN COMMAND
"Although the finish at the end
of the 1000-yard freestyle was
close, Gary Kinkead was in com-
mand the whole way. He made
the pace very slow so that Mike:
Allen might' be able to pick up a
second or third. The slow pace
would make the Indiana swimmers
think there was something wrong,
and screw up their pace."
As it turned out, Mike Allen:
took a third place for Michigan, as
the pre-meet plan succeeded. 1
Commenting on Kinkead's race1
Stager said, "Gary was just great.
He did just what I wanted." The
Michigan Coach couldn't have won1
more from the standout junior,
who took three first places against
Indiana.
PLANS FLOP
But unfortunately all of the'
pre-meet plans didn't work. Juan
Bello went out slow in the 200-yard
freestyle, again to keep the paces
'back so that Michigan could pick
up a vital second or third place
Although a Michigan man did
take third, Stager had hoped for
second.
Stager had nothing but praise
for the Peruvian Bello. "He's going
to be real tough at the National
Championships. Although he'sa
capable of a 1:43, he only swam a
1:48 last night. Bello held back;
as long as he could, hoping that
a Michigan swimmer could gett
second." Bello sprinted the lastr
lap to take first place. But hisC
teammates in the event couldn'tt
do the same, and Michigan hadt
to settle for a third.1
Stager is still extremely proud1
of his team that did so welli

{team. "Remember that they had
'six Olympians swimming for them.
'Hickcox and McKenzie are sup-
posed to be to the best in the
'world in their events. Yet look
'how close we came."
Michigan came so close, that
'the Wolverine mentor thinks that
we might beat Indiana in their
'home pool, even though they
'haven't lost in Bloomington in the
'last eight years. "Not only does
'the closeness of the final score,
'but also some of the close races
'we lost, point out that we have
'a good chance to beat them -down
'there."
Two of the men that Stager will
'have to count on down at Bloom-
ington are breaststroker Bill Ma-
'honey and diver Jay Meaden. Both
'upset favored Hoosiers in Wed-
nesday's meet. "These two are
'going to have to win again, if
'we're to beat Indiana in their
'home pool," Stager says.
Stager says of Meaden, "I've
always thought that Jay was a
real good diver. Now I think he's
capable of being an NCAA cham-
pion."

SOPHOMORE BILL MAHONEY sprints the next to last lap of
his 200 yard breaststroke race on the way to his upset win over
two Indiana Olympians. Mahoney was a body length behind after
100 yards, but came back to win the event in near record time.

When Tom McCaslin says he
likes to talk to people, you can
tell he means it. Just by talking
with him.
"I like to be around different
types of people," McCaslin, a per.
sonable guy, says. "That's why I
joined a fraternity (Phi Delta
Theta). If I hadn't, I'd just know
guys associated with athletics. At
a university this size, it's import-
ant to have a lot of friends."
From a small New England prep
school, McCaslin, a senior on the
wrestling team, came to Michi-
gan and immediately noticed a
difference. "I couldn't get into
the Ivy League schools with the
grades I had, but here they take
a wider view of the person. A prep
school isvmore conservative. At a
big university, the people are
more flexible, more likely to take
a chance with a person. But I
wanted to come here anyway, so it
worked out OK."
His time now is "pretty w e 11
taken up with wrestling," but he
mentions that he likes motor-
cycles, and to hunt a lot. "I've
talked to people who've done every
kind of hunting there is," McCas-
lin'says. "Some day I'd like to go
North American big game hunt-
ing, or even on safari, but I don't

know if I'll have the time or the
money. Probably the money, but
I don't know about the time."'
Because of his wrestling com-
mitment, he explains, "I don't get
to do too much for the house. I
help run the IM wrestling tourna-
ment, though." Last fall he was
picked for Druids, an honorary
society.
By this June, he hopes to have
his double education major in
English and Physical Education.
Originally English had, been his
only major, but he added P.E.
when the opportunity to student
teach in that field came up. "I
wanted to get my certificate so I'm
student teaching P.E. at Belleville
High School, instead," he says.
"I'd like to teach - no lower
than high school - and coach
wrestling if I could. I feel more
competent to coach wrestling than
to teach English. I feel I know
more about it.
He adds matter-of-factly that
it doesn't make too much differ-
ence whether he teachs English
or P.E. "It's not going to, be my
career," McCaslin explains.
"I may try to get into law
school here after I graduate. It
depends on Uncle Sam," he says
with a grin.

"My father's in the industrial
supply business and I'll eventually
go into that. But I want to do
something on my own first."
And that includes wrestling. He
was on the same Hill School team
s Geoff Henson and their coach
is one of the major reasons that
they're here. "My wrestling and
football coach both graduated
from here," he notes. "It's pro-
bably why I came here. I went out
for wrestling because the coach,
Mr. Bissell graduated from Hill
school with my dad and he had
been telling me what a great guy
rMr. Bissell was. When I joined
the team, I found out he was
right."
His senior year, the Hill school
team won the National Prep
School Championship held at Le-
high. At 123, McCaslln met and
beat Lou Hudson, one of his team
mates on the Wolverine team to-
day. Another Hill School wrestler
won at 130 - Geoff Henson, also
a Michigan wrestler. Strangely
enough, Lane Headrick, now a
third Wolverine teammate, won
at 137.
All his high school experience
back in Pottstown, Pa., hasn't
made McCaslin blase towards the
sport of wrestling.. "I get pretty
nervous before a meet," he says.
If it's a Saturday match, I try
to relax by watching the cartoons.
Some of the guys like to play
cards, but that doesn't work for
me. Maybe because I don't like
to play cards that much. But be-
fore a meet I do like to talk to
people."
On his trip to California two
summers ago, with Geoff Henson,
a wrestling teammate,. and
another friend, McCaslin un-
doubtedly got to talk toa- lot of
different people.
"That was a wild experience,"
he relates. "We hitchhiked and
hopped freight trains back f r o m
California, it took a week."
Last summer he worked on con-
struction jobs. "I didn't really
need the money," he says, "ex-
cept as pocket money. But you've
got to get up in the morning and
do something." .
