ruary 4 column. Vetzner called for
students to fight this continuing
trend and to select one game and
boycott it as a protest.
But ticket manager Don Weir
doubted whether attendance would
be influenced.
Natural Increase
Assistant football coach Tony
Mason viewed the increase as nat-
ural. "Prices for everything have
gone up while sports entertain-
ment hasn't. I think the increase
is justified because it is needed for
sports to compete with other sour-
ces of entertainment."
Swimming coach Gus Stager
added, "It's fine if they can get
away with it. Besides it's the
alumni who get hit the worst."
Ed Conlin, president of the Ann
Arbor Alumni Club supported this
view, explaining, "It's pretty darn
expensive. I feel that it may be-
come too expensive for some peo-
ple. In my family, for instance,
an afternoon at a game with my
wife and two children now costs
$16 compared to $12. The very en-
thusiastic fans will still go, but
it will hurt attendance."
Some Support Hike
Several Michigan athletes sup-
ported the increase explaining that
they could use better travel ar-
rangements.
But one student who seemed
ready to talk about the increase
until the next one argued against
it.
"People say that we have to pay
more because we have a different
set-up with an independent ath-
letic department. This might be
nice, but part of student tuition
still goes to the athletic depart-
ment. I don't know of any other
college in the country where stu-
dents are expected to finance the
athletic department by paying
competitive ticket prices. If this is
the only way our athletic depart-
men can keep functioning, it
might be time to change the ath-
letic department."

By DOUG HELLER
The Wolverine swimmers zap-'
ped Wisconsin Saturday, but the
word is INDIANA now.
Yes, and Indiana smothered
Michigan State Saturday, 78-45.
Michigan lost to State two weeks
before, 63-60.
Ahem.
Someody has a job cut out for
himself. And coach Gus Stager
knows it.
"Our sprinters are at least one
second slower than Indiana's. If
they beat us, that's how they will
do it. Also, Bill Utley is back for
them now with good times and he
was ineffective with a broken jaw
in our last meet. And wherever
he swims he will hurt us."

dove well at Purdue too. As it
stands now, it probably will be
Walmsley and Jay Meaden at
three meters, and Fred Brown and
Meaden at one meter."
Kimball also added that Mich-
igan would have to split Indiana's
divers (prevent a one-two sweep
with a second place finish in both
events) to have any kind of a
chance at winning the meet.
'First place would look almost
impossible with NCAA one meter
champ Ken Sitzberger diving for
Indiana.
As Planned
The Wisconsin meet went about
as expected otherwise with more
than one swimmer in an unfa-
miliar event. Russ Kingery won

Stager, in looking at Indiana's
depth, says he was considering let-
ting Mike O'Connor swim without
Robie in the 1000 yard freestyle,
and let Robie take on NCAA
champ Bill Utley in the 200 yard
individual medley.
Kimball doesn't exude optimism
about the meet though. He says
that in addition to splitting up
Indiana's divers, the swimmers
would almost have to perform
"over their heads."
He concludes by saying it will
be a good meet, certainly closer
than the Indiana-Michigan State
contest, but on paper it doesn't
look like the Wolverines are going{
to win it, since the Hoosiers are
the better team. Still, a Michigan
victory is by no means impossible.

Indiana won the Jan. 13 meett
at Bloomington 69-54.
Not All That Bad
Still, things aren't as bad as
they might seem. The Michigan- I
MSU meet was at East Lansing.
The Indiana-MSU meet was at
Indiana. This one will be at Matt
Mann Pool. Coach Stager also '
points out that the comparative
point advantage for Indiana isn't
as great as it might look because!
it doesn't take into account how
close the individual races were.
There was also some improve-
ment displayed by Michigan in the
80-43 thrashing of'Wisconsin. "We
finally figured out the problem
with John Robertson (number two
breaststroker). Apparently he's
been having some trouble with his
breathing. He swam a fine 150
yards Saturday before his oxygen
debt caught up with him."
However, further improvement
is needed since Robertson's time
was over 2:20 which probably
won't even get him third place
against Indiana.
Perhaps the best news of the
week was Bob Walmsley's 307.4
points to take the three meter
diving. Diving coach Dick Kim-:
ball remarked, "Yes, Walmsley is
for real. Even before the Wiscon-

the 200 I-M in addition to his
usual backstroke. Butterflyer Tom
O'Malley anchored the winning
freestyle relay team, and butter-
flyer Lee Bisbee took third in the
500 yard freestyle.
In contrast, Carl Robie went
back to the 200 yard butterfly,
where he is defending NCAA
champion, and only missed the
NCAA record by about a second,
finishing in 1:54.62.

PRINCETON NOW FOURTH:
UCLA Still Leads Poll

By The Associated Press
Nothing, it appears, not even
stalling tactics can prevent Prince-
ton from reaching a higher posi-
tion and UCLA from maintaining
its undisputed lead in the Asso-
ciated Press' major college bas-
ketball poll.I
Southern California stalled for
44 minutes against the Bruins Sat-
urday night and lost 40-35 in
overtime. Dartmouth played ball
control for almost 34 minutes
against the Tigers Friday night
and was beaten 30-16.
While unbeaten UCLA was the
unanimous choice as the No. 1
team for the fourth straight week,
Princeton was one of five, teams
to gain ground in the latest bal-
loting by a national panel of 35,
sports writers and broadcasters.
Holding Strong
The Bruins are followed by
North Carolina and Louisville,
each holding its position. Prince-
ton, 17-1, advanced one place to
fourth, Houston is fifth, followed
by Western Kentucky, Kansas,
Texas Western, Providence and
Boston College.
North Carolina accumulated 284

WHAT IS A
WOMAN?
A modern woman is soft and ten-
der, but completely emancipated,
sexually and intellectually. That's
why she reads KOZMOPOLITAN, the
magazine for today's switched-on-
supper-hippy swinger.
Because she wants to keep up to
date on today's most important
problems she follows monthly col-
umns like "Ask the Gynecologist"
and "So You're Going to Have an
Abortion."
Because she wants to know how
to please a man, she reads informa-
tive articles like "When to Wear
