Join in the most adventurous experiment of our time. Opera-
tion Match. Let the IBM 7090 Computer (the world's most perfect
matchmaker) stamp out blind dates for you.
Two Harvard juniors started it. 100,000 students have done it.
Now you and 3,400,000 college students in 1500 colleges in 50
cities can sign up and join in!
Just send us the coupon. We'll send you the Operation Match
Quantitative Personality Projection Test pronto!
Then return the questionnaire with $3.00. What you're like
and what you like will be translated into our 7090's memory file.
It will scan the qualifications of every member of the opposite sex
from this geographic area. Then it will select the five or more
.matches best for you.
You'll receive your names, addresses and telephone numbers
within three weeks. You'll be what your date is looking for. Your
date will be what you are looking for. In other words: the matches
will be mutual.

Special To The Daily
BLOOMINGTON-"Six in '66"
-this is what Coach Newt Loken's
Michigan gymnastics team was4
going for as they went into the
Western Conference champion-
ship meet last Friday. Their de-
feat at the hands of MSU in dual
meet competition a week ago Sat-I
urday made the Michigan team*,
an underdog and their chances of
succeeding were considered low. y
Ed Gunny, Michigan State gym-
nast, and a recognized "mouth"
on the Michigan State team, was
rather unconcerned about the out-
come of the meet and said before:
it began, "Whether we win or lose
isn't important, we have already!
had our moment of glory when
we beat Michigan last week." He
must have thought it would be,
easier the second time.
State Up Before the Start GARY VANDER VOORT
Before the meet started, MSU petition remained for that evening;
had seven points toward the chain- all three strong points for the

ual all-around meet champion. In!
this trio Thor led in all eventsF
except still rings where Vander
Voort bested him 9.15 to 8.85. Thor
took the Western conference all-
around championship with 54.80
points, VanderVoort second with
52.40, and Silhan took third.
Individual Meet
The next day the individual
gymnastics championiship compe-
tition started. The top eight con-
tenders from the previous day
competed for individual titles. In
these events VanderVoort took two
third places, parallel bar and hor-
izontal bar, and one fifth place in
still rings. Ken Williams took sec-
ond on the parallel bar. Rich
Blanton took second on still rings.
Phip Fuller took second In floor
exercise and fifth in vaulting. Chip
Fuller took fifth in floor exercise.
Art Baessler took third on side
horse. But the big event for Mich-
igan was trampoline where Miller
took the conference championship
and Conant took second.

were borne out by a record of six
consecutive championships. Yes,
"Six in '66."

pionship, Michigan six, and Illi-I
nois five: one point for each win
in dual meet competition. Michi-
gan had lost only to MSU, and1
Illinois had lost only to Michi-t
gan and MSU. The winner of the
championship meet received 16
points, second 14, third 12, and1
so forth.
MSU was favored on their show-E
ing during dual meet competition
and they were the team to beat.
If Michigan could take first in
the championship meet they
would have 22 points to MSU's
possible 21 (if they took second).
Thus Michigan had to take first
place in the championship meet
over MSU to win the conference
championship again.
In the first event Friday, vault-
ing, Michigan grabbed the leadt
with 27.6, to MSU's 27.55, and
Illinois' 27.4. After this the meet
turned into a kind of organized'
confusion with three events goingI
at the same time. Illinois drop-
ped from serious contention after
a series of faults and this left
only Michigan and MSU.
The two. team's scores seemed
to complement each other-floorI
exercise, Michigan 26.7: MSU 27.4:
side horse, Michigan 26.05: MSU
25.35. Then Michigan State blew
trampoline with a score of 24.2c
and Michigan came through with
a 26.80 due to the efforts of Wayne
Miller, Vic Conant and Keith
Cooley.

Tickets for the 1966 NCAA
M i d e a s t Regional basketball
tournament at Iowa City will be
on sale at the Athletic Ticket
Office, State and Hoover, today
from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The
tickets cost $4 for general ad-
mission and $6 for reserved
seats. The tickets are good for
the doubleheaders on both Fri-
day and Saturday nights.
The Michigan half of the
Friday doubleheader will be
broadcast on WJBK-TV, Chan-
nel 2, beginning at 10 p.m. If
the Wolverines win, the regional
finals will also be televised.

The traditional post-game hand-
shaking between the two teams
seemed to be interminable Thurs-
day night, but it finally ended
and Michigan's dejected hockey
team retired sullenly to their
dressing room. Each of the players
sat with his head on his knees, re-
flecting.
Michigan had just closed out
its brief playoff schedule with a
3-2 loss to Michigan State. Al-
though the Spartans (9-11) fin-
ished just behind Michigan (9-9)
disposed of the Wolverines four
out of five times that the two
squads faced off against each oth-
er. The only victory that Michi-
gan picked up over MSU was ten
days ago when they won, 1-0, in.
eight minutes of overtime.
MSU Dumps Tech
Saturday night the Spartans
went on to upset Michigan Tech,
4-3, enabling MSU to represent
the Eastern division of the WCHA
in the NCAA turney in Minneapo-
lis two weeks from now.
Earlier in the week Mel Waka-
bayashi had said, "If we don't
get into the NCAA's it won't have
been a very good season for us." It
was the Chatham, Ont., center's
two goals that put the Wolverines
ahead 2-1 Thursday, but the Maize
and Blue couldn't hold on as two
third period Spartan goals dropped

Saves:

them out of the single-elimina-
tion tourney.
Michigan fell behind 1-0 at 2:31
of the first stanza, but Wakabay-
ashi brought the Wolverines back
into contention with a shifty goal
as Michigan hockey fans had seen
all season. "Waka" came in from
the right point, sidestepped a de-
fender, deked goalie Gaye Cooley
to the right, cut in front of the
crease laterally, and flipped the
puck into the far corner from six
feet away as he flashed by.. That
was the last score of the period,
but throughout the game Michi-'
gan, once again, missed several.
good chances, including both a
breakaway and a short slapshot
by Wakabayashi.
Slower and Sloppier
The second period was slower
and sloppier, and the teams bat-
tled scorelessly for three-quarters
of the period as Harold Herman,
Michigan's sophomore netminder,
kept the Spartans at bay with sev-
eral key saves on Spartan rockets
and rebounds that were labeled
for the corners.
Wakabayashi put Michigan in
the lead for the last time in the
season with another spectacular
goal at 16:36 of the second period.
Mel stickhandled his way through,
all of the Spartan team for open-
ers then got around the defense-
man to set up a one-on-one situa-
tion with Cooley. Just as the Wol-
verine captain was about to fake
and shoot, he tipped but managed
to push the puck ahead of him in-
to the corner as he sprawled on
his belly into the net along with
Cooley.
Protecting Lead
Michigan tried to protect its
lead in the third period to hang
on for the win, but Brian Mac-
Andrew came off the backboards
with the puck at 5:13 and
crammed it into the corner de-
spite Herman's pads which were
flush against the net post.
Third line center Wayne Duffet
tallied the final goal of the sea-
son in the Coliseum as he slipped
the sliver of rubber under Her-
man as defenseman Teddy Hen-
derson was struggling to get up

after taking a check against the
back boards. After that Michigan
had two power play.opportunities
but was unable to convert either
one as State lapsed back into
some effective "Katie bar the door"
hockey.
Brightest Point
The brightest part of the sea-
son had to be Michigan's amaz-
ing two-game sweep at the ex-
pense of Michigan Tech. The Wol-
verines played brilliant hockey in
beating the 1965 NCAA champs,
but they never got back up to the
same peak as they dropped seven
of their last nine games, including
one to last place Minnesota-Du-
luth. During those two hours of
hockey, Michigan hustled and they
found out that Tech's players put
their skates on one at a time too.
Three weeks before that Michi-
gan had shown the Gophers what
kind of potential they had as they
bested Minnesota twice in Min-
neapolis for the first time in Al
Renfrew's years of coaching.
The Minnesota sweep was the
middle portion of a five-game win-
ning steak that ended in frigid
Grand Forks, North Dakota the
next weekend. The pair of losses
in the 35 below weather only
served to whet the Wolverines'
appetite for victory as they bopped
Tech twice the following series.'
But after that . .. After that . .
With A Little Bit ..
A lack of hustle a little less tal-
ent that teams like Tech and a
shortage of spirit cost the young
Wolverines a chance to finish
higher in the standings. Next year,
Michigan will be missing Mel
Wakabayashi (who finished eighth
in the conference scoring race),
Barry MacDonald, Ted Henderson,
Hank Brand, and Bob Ferguson;
however, Coach Renfrew will have
an experienced crew of sopho-
mores back to build around: So,
maybe next year.
