'M' Tankers Look Ahead

Like many things, working for AC Spark Plug Division of General
Motors is a two way street. You give and you get.
Here's what you give. Yourself. Your energies and ambition. Your
talent and time. Your ideas and abilities. All that you are and all that
you want to be.
Here's what you get. Unlimited opportunities with the largest manu-
facturer of automotive parts and accessories in the world. Challenging
and meaningful assignments in every area of the business-engineering,
research, accounting, sales, production and so on. A diversity and scope
that permits a choice of assignment areas to suit almost any background
and interest.
As an employe of General Motors, you also get GM's excellent em-
ploye benefits-group life insurance, income protection, hospital, surgical
and medical coverage, vacations, holidays, stock savings program .and
retirement program.
We're not through yet. Add to this excellent opportunities to con-
tinue your education . . . and the encouragement and financial assistance
to do so. The chance to move into any area of General Motors where your
skills and abilities are needed. The fact that AC benefits from the re-
sources of the world's largest industrial organization, yet has the flexi-
bility of an independent company.
You get a lot from the community, too. Flint is the second largest
city in Michigan . . . 65 miles from Detroit and about the same distance
from Ann Arbor and East Lansing. It has a $30 million Community College
and Cultural Center. Excellent schools. Hundreds of lakes within a 35-
mile radius. Nine winter sports areas with ski tows within 60 miles. Great
hunting, 13 golf courses and 434 churches.
We've talked more about what you can get than what you can give,
but that's only because we don't know much about you. You can fix that
by registering with the placement office for an appointment with the
General Motors principal interviewer who'll be on campus January 23-27.
Then tell him you'd like to talk with the AC Spark Plug Division inter-
viewer who'll be there January 27th.

The more you look at the Mich-
igan swimmers' 69-54 loss to In-
diana, the smaller that 15 point
difference seems.
Indiana coach Doc Councilman
claimed after the meet last Fri-
day that the reason the Hoosiers
pulled it out was because of the
double victory of sophomore Bryan
Bateman over defending Big Ten
champion Bill Groft.
But, as Michigan coach Gus
Stager explained at poolside yes-
terady, "Graft is a slow starter."
In answer to whether Groft will
be ready for the return meet here
against Indiana on Feb. 11, diving
coach Dick Kimball answered "he
better be."
Then there was the 500 yard
freestyle lost by Olympian Carl
Robie to Indiana's Bob Windle
"who just touched him out" ac-
cording to Kimball. Both Wolver-
ine coaches agreed that such a
thing would never happen at
Matt Mann pool where times are
all recorded electronically and
Robie has the extra advantage of
familiarity. In addition, Robie was
tired from winning the 1000 yard
freestyle while Windle had only
swam in the 200.

a little bit further away from

Indiana. And he doesn't mean

times closer than Bloomington.

Cazzie: Gradu ate Studies
NEW YORK - "The Knicks are finally crawling out of the
cellar, and this kid Cazzie Russell is bringing the match to lead the
way." That was the concensus sound in this city a couple of months
ago when Cazzie, an NBA version of Joe Willie Namath. was being
touted as instant success (just add a dash of experience-once around
the league should do it).
What New York got was 220 pounds of fired-up desire and abil-
ity. Just give him his head, stand back, and watch the sparks fly.
On the court he's in seventh heaven, and you can feel it - that heady
joy of doing something so well. That's the stuff that generates the
excitement in the stands and the momentum on the floor.
Cazzie is the most dedicated ball player I've ever seen, a strict
self-disciplinarian. The game is his life, and he lives it. As he puts
it: "I don't need a million people cheering me. I'd be just as happy
out there if I were invisible. I just want to stay tough - keep in
shape so I can play."
What would you do with him?
A guy named Dick McGuire has other ideas. And as fate would
have it Dick McGuire is the coach of the New York Knickerbockers,
a fact which more or less zonks democratic procedure in the matter.
What McGuire had in mind was a slower process of easing the
kid into the NBA a little at a time. He would be initiated via pain-
less doses - painless for everyone. After all, while no one was look-
ing the Knicks had put together a pretty solid line-up even without
the Michigan star.
Walt Bellamy, when he wants to, is one of the better centers
in the league. Willis Reed - a former Rookie-of-the-Year - at a
forward spot is pushing himself into the legit super-star class. And
the rest of the team: Dick Van Arsdale up front, Dick Barnett solid
and experienced in the back court, chucker Butch Komives at the
other guard, and Dave Stallworth a still inconsistent but hightly
promising sixth man, could hold its own in the NBA.
So, with or without a new Oscar immediately in the line-up, the
Knicks would probably take third in the East behind Philadelphia
and Boston. This team wasn't suffering with the gaps that dazzling
Dave Debusschere's Pistons had. So why force it?
And, it was obvious that Cazzie did and does have a lot to learn.
The pros play a game very different from the college brand.

And there is the overcompensating of a rookie. At first he was
forcing shots. Now he is almost reluctant to shoot, and hestitates
in going one-on-one and putting out those moves to the boards -
his forte in college - which, as a 6'6" guard he can certainly still
pull off. He was forcing passes for a time, but now tends to get up
plays too often for a team which should role free...
What it comes down to is that Caz is playing about 10 to 20
minutes a game at just shy of nine points a stint and is not exactly
shooting the lights out on the circuit. Where this will lead to is
anyone's guess. The fact that mpst coaches, players, and members
of the press agree that it will be to stardom is amazing enough in
A long-time Garden observer in the Knicks organization put it
this way: "Sure, they still can drive right by him. Sometimes it was
pitiful . .. But there are other times when . .. well, we knew we were
going to get our money's worth. We know he's a team player. We
know that he's dedicated. And we think he can be the leader the
Knicks need back there.
"He's coming along, and McGuire isn't going to rush him. Just
watch him."
And Cazzie?
Well Cazzie sort of takes it all in his stride . . . I guess. When
I first went to see him I didn't exactly know what to expect. After
all, this is a college All-everything-in-the-book who was expected
to make tidal waves in the NBA with his coming to the Knicks .. .
and here he's still just getting his tootsies wet.
And nobody's looking for No. 14 out there on the court. He's
no celebrity. He usually gets on in the middle of the second quarter
and stays for either the third or final period. And when they keep
track of your offensive output in points per minute, you'd expect a
rookie to press hard whenever he gets in. It usually happens no
matter how much poise he displayed as an undergrad.
But if there's a strain, Russell doesn't show it. There is some
disappointment, of course, which he doesn't readily admit to. "You do
the best you can," he lightly tosses off at first. But he knows how
good he is, and he knows that he wants to play. And so the picture
of the guy coming early and staying late for practices, doing laps
in a 'Y' gym to increase his speed, and living a life that other ath-
letes must be forced into during the season still applies to Cazzie.
"You have to able to guard these guys real tight. It takes about
a year to learn, they say, and I'll do that too. But you've gotta be
in shape - know how to take care of yourself.
"The biggest thing in this league is keeping tough ... hard. They-
re always testing out a new guy. They like to knock you around a little
... sort of getting to know you. And you've gotta take it as it comes,
and maybe dish it out a little too. But you can't back off.
As for adjusting to the lengths of the game and the season, "It
isn't really hard. You just learn how to pace yourself.
"Of course it helps if you're living clean," he emphasizes with
a grin as nattily dressed Dave Stallworth, who Cazzie points out
as "the Negro Frank Sinatra" strides up.
And, even more than clean living, Cazzie does have another
big thing going for him with the Knicks. He leans over and explains
in a stage whisper: "See that old man over there?" he says, kidding
Dick Barnett. "He's gonna be 31. And Komives ... he's 25. Why I've
