Sesquisports.
"Sure, I'll never forget it. And
how about the Ohio State game in
'26? We were on their 45, see,
third down..."
The collge athlete, even the very
good one.iis not immortal.
For at least half or his life he
has driven toward perfection in his
sport. His grinding sweat-filled
years culminate in one or two
months of glory near the end of
his career and then with shocking
abruptness, it all ends with a
diploma.
He might try his hand as a pro-

fessional, but instead he will prob-
ably retreat from the limelight to
a quiet neighborhood where a few
kids will ask him to show them
his "bullet-like pass" or his "dead-
ly jump shot."
The Alumni Celebration, March
1-5, the first of five "major cere-
monies" concerned with the Ses-
quicentennial year, will recall the
accomplishments of former Michi-
gan students and, appropriately
enough, the long-standing Wolver-
ine sports tradition will not be
neglected.
The old stories, maybe a little
more colorful now, will be the
first and only order of business
at the sports banquet March 2 in

Lookin
the Union Ballroom. The impres-
sive guest list is composed of 73
of the most illustrious athletes in
Michigan's history. Everyone from
Stan Wells, football All-American
in 1910, to Jack Clancy will be
represented.
"We attempted to select the
outstanding athletes from each
decade beginning around the turn
of the century," says Hugh Rader
Jr., co-chairman of the banquet.
"Each coach was asked to submit
a list of whom he considered to be
the best in his particular sport
and we went from there. We be-
lieve that we have a good cross-
section of the entire sports scene."
Every guest will receive a small

Frosh Face Double Challenge

:r REPORT
WHAT KIND OF
FUTURE DO OT
Where "C" stands for continuing progress

By JON SISKIN
Although Michigan's varsity is
engaged in a crucial meet with
Iowa and Ohio State this weekend,
the freshman gymnasts also are
competing in an important meet
tonight which should give a defi-
nite indication as to the Wolver-
ines' hopes for the future.
The frosh will travel to East
Lansing where they face Iowa and
MSU in a triangular meet at 7:30.
Both the Hawkeyes and Spartans
sport excellent first-year squads
and all events are expected to be
closely-contested.
Among the Wolverine freshmen
are several who had outstanding
high school careers. Sid Jenson, a
native of Montreal, is a rarity in
that he performs well on all pieces
of apparatus. He placed first in
the all-around in Canada -as a
high school senior, and will likely
suceed Glary Vander Voort as
Michigan's all-around man next
season.
Illinois, and particularly the
Chicagoland area, has been a hot-
bed for gymnastics in recent years
and has produced numerous col-
lege prospects. Jim DeBoo, Charlie
Froeming, Ron Rapper, Dave
Ruttenberg and Steve Vanek all
hail from this area and were
sought by many colleges.
DeBoo placed third in the state
meet on side horse last season;
Rapper finished second in the
state finals on the parallel bars
and Ruttenberg was also a paral-
lel-bars finalist. Froeming is a
standout on the rings while Vanek
is a steady performer on the side
horse and parallel bars.
As for Saturday's varsity meet,
Iowa enters with an unblemished
record of 5-0 and in first place in
the Big Ten, while Ohio State is
dead last with a mark of 0-5. The
Wolverines, who have lost once
this year to Michigan State, must
capture the meet to vault them
into a tie with the Hawkeyes go-

ing into the conference meet be-
ginning March 2.
Iowa, which has already dump-
ed Illinois and MSU, is feared most
on side horse and rings. The
Hawks boast the best side horse
team in the country, with senior
Ken Gordon, junior Marc Slotten,
and sophomore Keith McCanless
all capable of scoring 9.3 or better
out of a possible 10. Gordon and
Slotten both are All-Americans,
and McCanless has done as well
or bettered their performances on
several occasions.-
Iowa is also exceptionally strong
on the rings, as coach Sam Bailie
rates sophomores Don Hatch and
Terry Siorek both as potential
All-Americans.
Another Hawkeye standout is
Neil Schmitt, a fine worker on
the high bar and one of the best

in the nation in the all-aroun J. Football on TV

and scientists
The U. S. Navy Marine Engineering Lab-
oratory conducts RDT&E in naval ship-
board and submarine machinery and
auxiliary systems (electrical, propulsion,
control, etc.). In addition to developing
basic improvements in performance and
reliability, the Laboratory concentrates on
ship silencing, new concepts in energy
conversion and control, ways to minimize
friction and wear, special operating ma-
chinery for deep-diving vessels; and tough,.
resistant naval alloys to meet all ocean
environmental conditions.
The Laboratory buildings-now more
than 50 of them-house some of the finest
research, experimental and evaluation
equipments of their kind, such as high-
speed computers, electric power generators,
vibration and shock test stands, metals
composition analysis instruments, cryo-
genic storage and handling facilities, phys-
ics and chemistry labs, and complex in-
strumentation for measuring strain, stress,
pressure, acceleration, velocity, perform-
ance, and reliability. The Laboratory
grounds resemble a modern industrial
park, and include special facilities for
in-field experimentation.
And the locale is ideal. Washington,
Baltimore and the ocean resorts are no
more than one hour's drive. Annapolis it-
self is the state capital, and offers small-
city living with metropolitan accessibility.
Urgent new projects require additional
engineering and scientific personnel with
BS, MS, and PhD degrees.
Typical Duties of Engineers and
Scientists at MEL:

Electronic Engineers-Research and devel-
opment in electronics-servo-mechanisms
-electromechanical devices-instrument
and panel illumination-pressure measure-
ment-fluid flow measurement.
Chemical Engineers-Research and devel-
opment work in chemical and electro-
chemical processes; gas and fluid flow
systems and equipment; air and water
treatment systems; semi-conductor ma-
terials; lubrication; fuel systems and proc-
esses; filtration; hydraulic fuel systems.
Physicists-Application of physical princi-
ples to the areas of sound, electronics,
optics, mechanics, instrumentation, or
electricity and magnetism.
Chemists-Engaged in application of chem-
ical principles to the areas of water treat-
ment and purification, corrosion and dep-
osition in naval equipment, atmosphere
purification, thermoelectric materials, fuel
cell power generation, lubrication, fuels,
hydraulic fluids, and instrumental analysis.
Metallurgists-Research and development
work in the area of new or improved alloys
for ship hull and machinery applications
involving considerations of physical and
mechanical properties of metals and al-
loys, fatigue and corrosion characteristics,
and weldability.
Salaries range from $6,027 to $10,619 per
year, depending on type of degree and
scholastic standing.
Appointees acquire the benefits of career
civil Service and regular salary increases.
All applicants will be considered on the
basis of merit without regard to sex, race,
creed, color, national origin, age, physical
handicap, marital status, or lawful politi-
cal affiliation.
