onde Star Startles Ferry Field Onlookers

By STEVE GALL
"Hey, guys, over here. Look at
the track team. Hey, not bad.
Some beautiful strides. Yeah-he's
got a nice kick. OK-Let's go see
football practice. Wait a second-
Who's that over there in blue with
that blond hair? Hey, I don't be-
lieve it-Look at her-she's pretty
good."
Slowly, but deliberately this
blond approaches with her long
golden hair flopping up and down
rhythmically. Shep passes noncha-
lantly among these startled on-
lookers, acknowledges a hello from
a runner and moves swiftly away.
This is the typical impression
Francie Kraker gives when she
runsl. Miss Kraker is something of
a novelty around track circles
here. She is a national champion
with high hopes for the future.
Francie, a soft-spoken freshman,
won the 1964 National AAU Wom-

en's 800 meter run. She has com-
peted in numerous events around
the country with constant suc-
cess. She has. done 2:12 for the
half-mile and hopes to break 2:10
soon.
Francie, a native of Ann Arbor,
started running in the ninth
Quiet Zotte
Because of numerous com-
plaints from spectators last
season, no horns or unusual
noise-making devices will be al-
lowed inside the Michigan
Stadium at football games this
fall, the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics has
decided. Persons appearing at
the gates with these devices
will be required to check them
at Gate Nine. Their property
may be picked up after the
game. . '

grade when her physical educa-
tion teacher, the wife of her pres-
ent coach Ken Simmons, interest-
ed her in competing after she sped
through the 600-yd. run phase of
a physical fitness test in record
time.
"She's a real competitor with
great potential," Coach Simmons,
a physical education instructor,
explains. "Francie wins graciously,
but loses humbly. She's a real
lady."
With a keen eye on the future,
Simmons-is now working Francie
on long-distance running. She
runs one and a half daily in
around nine minutes.
Keep Running
"I want to keep her running.
This overdistance work is good
training," Coach Simmons says.
In addition to this background
running, he is preparing her for.
the cross-country season coming

up. There are several meets spon-
sored by the AAU before the Na-
tionals. "Francie is one of the
best in the Midwest," he added
proudly.
Why does Francie run?
"I enjoy it, I love to compete,"
she claims. "I used to be afraid
of my own shadow, sort of an in-
trovert. But now I think I'm
somebody," she adds. "I love to

meet people. Running has become
an integral part of my personal-
ity," Francie says with a smile.
"I've been very busy lately but
I still have some goals now," she
says seriously. "I'd love to make
the Pan-American team in 1967
and of course the Russian team in
1966. I know I must break 2:10 at
least."
Francie reflects on the question

of women running in track: "Def
initely, I think women shou
run. They aren't competing again
men, just themselves."
Do the whistles and cries c
astonishment bother her?
"No, not at all. I love runnin

inside, especially on boards. The
atmosphere is marvelous.
"I remember in Cleveland for
the Knights of Columbus Meet
they introduced the competitors
with a spotlight. Nobody knew
me but they all applauded and
cheered. I felt very good about
that.
"Sure, I'd love to go to Mexico
City in 1968 for the Olympics. But
there is a lot of hard work ahead.
I'm sure I must break 2:08 before
I even have a chance," she re-
flects.
"Francie is self-motivating. No-
body tells her to run-She's a
wonderful kid," Coach Simmons
reveals. He says that she is one
of the three best 800 meter run-
ners in the country now.
So, the next time you see an
attractive blond run in blue,
whistle, hoot, yell or even sigh,
but don't get in her way, she's got
work to be done.

One of our good customers, faced with the choice of taking his
wife or KLH Model Eleven to Port Said-took his wife.
- Of course.
We don't make silly claims about the Eleven.
But we'll bet you see more KLH Model Elevens going places with
peoplewho go places than any other stereo portable on the market.
The reason is simple. The Eleven is a portable that's really port-
able. Just 28 pounds of solid musical performance.
It's got KLH quality throughout. There are specially designed KLH
full range speakers; a distortion-free solid state amplifier; an auto-
matic turntable custom-built for KLH by Garrard; magnetic cartridge
and diamond stylus; inputs for tuner and tape recorder, and many
other features.
Come down to the store.
Listen to the big sound of a little Eleven.
It's for sure you'll run out of the store with one.
And you won't need muscles or trnsa shoes. It's that light.
So is the price. -;."
Just $199.95. 1< .

We've known for years what direct fire does for flavor...
Millions of Americans are now getting the message
IN FOOD-IN BEER, FIRE BRINGS OUT THE FLAVOR. Time was you just
didn't see all this backyard barbecuing, but folks are catching on. Nothing, but
nothing like direct fire draws out all the sizzling, juicy succulence of steaks or
ribs. And, nothing like brewing over direct fire draws better flavor out of ingre-
dients and puts it into the beer. Fire-brewing is the traditional Old World way.
Try a cold, refreshing glass of Stroh's today. Enjoy exclusive fire-brewed flavor.
