Wolverine tankers aim for second in nation

Michigan's swimming team sur-
prised nearly everyone at the
F U K IS INCAA's last year by amassing 1641
pCAAts adcapturing fourth place,
as it was virtually the same team
that barely managed sixth place
with 92 points the year before, the
lowest Wolverine finish since 1956.
This year's squad will have a
strong nucleus with four tankers
-Gary Kinkead, Juan Bello, Dick
Rydze, and Bill Mahoney-who ac-
counted for 102 points at the
NCAA's. But more important, a
strong and lengthy delegation of
freshmen swimmers may give
Michigan the opportunity to dis-
place Stanford or Southern Cali-
fornia as the number three or
number two team in the nation.
It is generally conceded that
Indiana will win the national
championship this year for the
third straight time. Although the
bb Hoosiers lost Charlie Hickcox,
fre:hman Gary Hall could team
up with Mark Spitz to give In-
diana another new record in total
team points at the NCAA's.

In Coach Gus Stager's words,
"Of the eigtheen swimmers that
will go to the Big Tens this year,
half of them could easily be fresh-

Bello, Mahoney, and Rydze seem
assured of going."

In signing this petition, we add our voices to those who demand that Syria release the two detained Israelis, illegally taken into custody in the h
ing of a Trans World Airlines plane on August 29, 1969. We further protest that despite their failure to release these two passengers, Syria has
elected to sit on the most politically powerful body of the United Nations, the Security Council. We call upon the Secretary General of the U
Nations, U Thant, to exercise the impartiality that his high office demands, and to do his utmost not only in securing the release of the two Israe
zens now being held in Damascus, but to work for legislation prohibiting the illegal seizure of planes, crews, and passengers involved in any f
hijackings. To stop air piracy, we call upon the International Air Transport Association, International Civil Aviation Organization and Internat
Federation of Airline Pilots' Associations to make clear that they no longer will fly to any nation that:
1. Refuses immediately to return a hijacked plane, its passengers or crew, or
2. Affords sanctuary to those responsible for the hijacking, or fails to prosecute or extradite them promptly.
