The state of Ohio ig known as a
hotbed of high school football tal-
ent and has been for years. Peo-
pie say that there's a college team
down in Columbus that proves this
fact. However, some of Ohio's tal-
ent manages to escape to the "free
One who escaped is Harry Gon-
so. He took Horatio Alger's ad-
vice and went West, to Indiana.
Ohio State's Woody Hayes didn't
want Gonso because he was too
small, but John Pont welcomed
him with open arms.
Gonso came carrying some im-
pressive credentials. He had earn-
" ed ten letters at Findlay H i g h
I'School where he participated in
basketball, swimming, track, and
baseball besides football. The De-
troit Tigers thought enough of his
baseball catching ability to draft
him and offer to pay his college
HE FEELS, however, he was re-
cruited for football on the basis
of his junior year in which he re-'
ceived All-State honorable men-!
tion. "I didn't even m a k e All-
Conference my senior year, much'
less All-State. It wasn't that I got
worse but there were a lot of good
quarterbacks around that year."
Michigan defensive back Briar!
Healy was the good quarterback'
who beat Gonso for All-Confer-
Indiana still wanted him, All-
conference or not, and Gonso has
since shown them that their faith
was n o t inwarr nted. He led a
sophomore-studded team to a'
share of the Big Ten title and the

the bowl again did hurt us. I'm in-
terested in seeing how Ohio State
handles it his year."
THIS SEASON Gonso looks for-
ward to a run for the Big Ten ti-
le and another Rose Bowl trip.
He expects Minnesota, Purdue,!
and Iowa to be Indiana's toughest'
conferene, opponents, but "we're
lucky and don't have to play eith-
er Michigan or Ohio State."
The Kentucky game two weeks
ago, he feels, is the best college;
ame that he's played. He com-
y 4pleted 23 passes for 228 yards and
two touchdowns while running for
two more. "I called a pretty good
game and I hope to get back on
that type of game again this week
against Colorado."

Gonso would like to give the pros
a try. He looks forward to playing
with no team in particular b u t
would just like the chance to
play. If he doesn't go into pro
ball, he'd like to attend law school
and then go into business. He's
considering coming to Michigan
law school since "I know it's a
good school".
Perhaps Gonso will meet his old
friend Brian Healy, who's plan-
ning on medical school here, as
he walks across the Diag some day
next year. Or maybe he will again
see Brian on a professional foot-
ball field as Healy comes in on
him during a blitz or knocks down
one of his best spirals.

Harry Gonso
Hoosiers' first Rose Bowl trip ev-
er, in 1967.
That season established Gonso
as a rambling, scrambling m a nT
leading a bunch of kids who al-
ways managed to pull the game
out in the last minutes. He was'
All-Big Ten pick and honorable
mention All-American.
THE FUN and games were ex-
pected to continue last season, but
a few unforseen circumstances
ruined the repeat performance.
Gonso suffered a shoulder separa-
tion and missed almost two full
gamnes. But he still managed to
rush for 323 yards in 151 carries
and to pass for 1109 yards and 2
touchdowns. And of course that
scourge of previous Rose B o w I
teams, lack of Ruse Bowl incen-
tive, also cropped up. "The fact

strong team, we have the talent
and if we avoid injuries we should
be able to take the title."
HE FINDS this year's team at-
titude similar to his sophomore
year "except it's a little better be-
cause we know o u r capabilities.
We know what to expect of each
other and this makes it more ex-
citing." ,
Gonso's favorite play is the
sprint-out option where he gets
a chance to run or throw. "I like
it because I get to decide what
I'll do." He also likes a play which
Tndiana isn't using this year. This
the the halfback option w h e r e
John Isenbarger decides whether
to run or throw to Gonso.
The play was tried twice last
year. Once, Gonso turned a re-
ception into a 16-yard gain. Gonso
explains the second time, "It was
almost intercepted by Michigan.-
I think that's when we decided to
throw it out for this year."

Ia little work

This little diddy is supposed to be a masterpiece of pro-
paganda and persuasion.
JOIN the Daily sports staff!
Now for the propaganda.
Here, at 420 Maynard, just a brick's throw from the
LS&A Building and People's (Regents?) Plaza, we laugh a
lot and cry a little. We also play cards and drink a lot. (South-
ern Comfort seems to be a favorite). We write some and work
less. But most importantly we have a genuinely good time.
You don't need any real talent to work here. Anything you
know or any style you may have already developed will be
changed. If you're good when you sign up, at best, we'll make
you worse.
If people interest you, the Daily is the place for you. Every-
body is different. Everybody is crazy, but to different degrees.
The sports staff is a diverse group. Some of our numbers are
Greek. Some are with Radical Caucus. Some just live to read
the AP wires. "What happened to the Mets today?" Others are
rfelatively normal (crazy, but normal>.
Seriously now. Playing with the Daily sports staff is a
worthwhile experience. You begin as a trainee. At this time
you learn the various stylistic techniques. You work once a
week creating headlines and picture captions, writing a story,
and learning the tricks of the trade.
You are quickly promoted. Now as trainee night editor you
are taught how a page goes together. You learn that turning
out a newspaper is much like having a baby. You end up with
something that wasn't there before and both are a pain in the
By the time you reach the position of night editor you have
worked yourself well up in the elite (for those who haven't
heard yet, the sports staff is fondly referred to as the Revolu-
tionary Vanguard Elite).
At this point you make some money. Very little, but some.
You also earn a gate pass and suddenly football, basketball, and
hockey become more enjoyable.
As seniors, five reach the top. They become editors and no
longer work.
The Daily sports staff is for everyone. The frustrated fresh-
man. The slumped sophomore. The junkie junior. Even the sur-
reptitious senior can find a job.
You don't need any experience to work here. You don't need
any talent. All you need is a pencil, enough fingers to type slow-
ly, and a desire to have a good time.
Just remember what Abraham Lincoln once said. "Why
don't you come up and see us sometime?"

Can You Trust President Fleming?
At 11 P.M., on September 29, 1969, we visited President Fleming at his home. The
purpose of the visit was to clarify the University Administration's position on one of
the central issues of the current bookstore controversy.
At a session held earlier that evening at Lloyd Hall, there was a consensus of the
students present that it was hard to identify the issues of the bookstore controversy.
Specifically, there was a question as to whether or not the Regents had commit-
ted themselves to running the bookstore on a no profit basis and to offering books at
'a discount to students.
When confroned with this specific point of contention, President Fleming made it
explicitly clear that it was the decided policy of the Administration, from the Regents
on down, that the bookstore would be run on a no profit basis and with the goal of of-
fering the highest discounts possible. There was no question that all levels of the Ad
ministration are committed to operating the bookstore so that students will be given the
largest discounts possible.
When the Michigan Daily was notified of this conversation with President Flem-
ing, Martin Hirschman (night editor) said, "That's no news to me . . . If Fleming said
that to you, I'd wonder why he said it."
Hirschman gave us the impression that the Daily thinks that this specific no profit
student discount issue needed no further clarification and public notice. WVe believe that
it does.
In light of these facts, those still in opposition to the Regental bookstore proposal can
not possibly be concerned with the financial benefits of the students.
We believe that we can trust President Fleming, but we can't always trust what
we read on the editorial pages (front pages included) of the Michigan Daily.
