'Loyal Illinois' Protests Dismissal

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (P) -- "We're
Loyal To You, Illinois" was more
than its school song yesterday as
Illini, from football players to
many alumni and fans, rallied
around university President David

STUDENT GOVERNMENT COUNCIL
REGISTRATION FOR SPRING ELECTIONS

By ANDY BARBAS
No one won, no one lost, no one
tied, not enough men were' avail-
able, but the freshmen gymnastics
squad still competed in a trian-
gular meet with Michigan State
and Iowa. Team scores weren't
totaled because not all of the
events could be filled by the
squads.
Coach Newt Loken expressed the
opinion that he was "reasonably
satisfied with the performance of
the freshmen team." By this he
meant that while their showing
was good, many individuals have
done better.
Loken w'as especially impressed
with the performances of Chuck
Froeming and Ron Rapper. Froe-
ming scored an 8.9 on the rings,
and Rapper chalked up a 9.15 on
the parallel bars. Jim Deboo took
a first place on the side horse as
the Wolverines captured three of
the six events they competed in.
Joe Fedorchik from Michigan
State had the highest personal
point total, 57.275. He placed first
twice, second twice, third, and
fifth in the six events he entered.

Rick Sckorza from Iowa had the
second highest total with 48.125,
but was closely followed by Jen-
son with 48.0 .

Cagers Attempt
To Ditch Bottom
By JOEL BLOCK
On March 6,, 1965. Michigan
and Minnesota met in Yost Field
House to decide the Big Ten
basketball championship. It was
a tough battle for the Wolverines,
but they managed to clinch the
title with an 88-85 win.
It's been only two years from
that climactic game, but tonight's
game at Williams Arena in Min-
neapolis could be billed as "The
underground war for the Big Ten
cellar."
As of right now, Minnesota has
a slight edge on Michigan, sport-
ing a 3-7 record to the Wolverines'
2-7. The Gophers gained their
edge when they surprised title-
contender Iowa with a slim 88-86
upset last Tuesday.
That win against Iowa has put
Minnesota in an optimistic mood.
Assistant coach. George Hanson
states that despite their 2-4 rec-
ord in the last six games, "We've
played tremendously."
One player who has played
tremendously is 6'7" junior cen-
ter Tom Kondla. In those six
games Kondla has averaged 33
points per performance, a feat
which has vaulted him into sec-
ond place in the Big Ten scoring
race.
Hanson explains Kondla's
change-of-pace this way: "Eight
games ago we decided to move
Kondla into a low post.,Before
that he had been playing outside
in the corners a lot-almost like
a forward."
One highlight of their win over
Iowa-a defensive one-was junior
guard Wayne Barry's handling of.
Sam Williams, the man ahead of
Kondla in Big Ten scoring. Barry,
who is 6'1", held the 6'3" junior
college transfer student to just 13
points while he was in the game.
After Barry was pulled, Williams
scored four more points, but it
still was one of his poorest show-
igs of the season.

ward Bob Sullivan back into his
old starting role after having him
play a substitute's role for the
last few games. Strack made the
change because "Sullivan played
well for us in the last game."
Strack's defensive game plan is
to start with a man-to-man,
hoping that Craig Dill will be able
to hold down Kondla's polific
point production. If that fails to
work, he may switch to a 2-3
zone defense.
