Where is our biggest challenge -
in space, or on some battlefield?
Or does it lie in the realm of
thought, where men strive for
deeper insight and spiritual re-
newal ... for the discovery of man
in God's image. There's so much
more to life than what's on the
surface. Hear this public lecture

lieve that boys make better cheer-
leaders, mainly because it is hard-
er for girls to tumble and use the
tramp, and because the more de-
cisive motions of tumbling are
more natural to boys. Despite
these reasons, however, there is
always someone trying to inject
girls into Michigan cheerleading.
At Cage Contests
The main argument for them,
especially forsbasketball games, i
the fact that girls are naturally
more enthusiastic and would add
pep to the team. However, the
University (administration) op-
poses them and that makes it a
rather theoretical question.
The Fuller twins taught scores
of prospective cheerleaders for
the National Cheerleading Asso-
ciation this summer and came
back with quite a few innovations
for basketball. They even predict
a new trend in cheerleading-to-
ward more decisive motions in-
stead of the weak, flowery mo-
tions used in high schools. "If
you want anyone to know, what
you're doing in a stadium as big
as Michigan's, you have to," says
