They will be running on the
11-lap, $31,000 board track nestled
in Cobo before sell-out crowds of
9500 both tonight and tomorrow
afternoon. ABC's Wide World, of
Sports will televise tomorrow's
The Michigan cindermen, in an
attempt to gain back some lost
prestige after last week's fifth
.place showing at the Big Ten In-
doors, will enter Jack Harvey in
the shot put, Ken Coffin in the
880, Nelson Graham in the high
hurdles, Clarence Martin and
Gary Kickerbocker in the high
jump, and their crack relay unit
in the two mile.
Composed of sophomores Tom
Kearney, John Reynolds, and Ron
Kutschinski, in addition to junior
Alex McDonald, the Wolverine
two mile squad will again face
Fordham and Villanova, who were
squelched by the Michigan four-
some in a February duel.
In that encounter, the Wolver-
ines clipped off a blistering 7:29.8
at Madison Square Garden. That
time ranks as the second fastest
in the nation this season, with
only the 49er Track Club, owner
of a 7:25.6 .clocking, besting the
Michigan effort.
The much-heralded battle be-
tween Patrick, who ripped off a
3:59.3 mile indoors in the New
York AC games, and Ryun, who
sped to a 3:58.5 performance last
week, will not materialize in the
glamour event of American track,
although they will meet each other
tonight in the 880-yard run. Pat-

rick withdrew from the mile to-
morrow so that he could anchor
the Villanova effort in the mile
relay and two mile relay.
In all, the meet will attract over
360 track and field standouts from
93 universities. Missouri copped
the 1965 team title, with Kansas,
another Big Eight representative,
landing on top last year. Southern
Cal and Kansas are co-favorites
to grab the 1967 crown. Carrying

Greene, a Cornhusker, will face

Fast-talking your parents
is the hard way
to get to Britain.
Fact-talk instead.

Tell them exactly what your trip will cost. Our free book-
lets help you calculate it.
One lists prices of organized student tours. They start
around $650. If you want to travel on your own and take
potluck on meeting people-which may be the most fun
of all-add things up for yourself.
Start with a charter flight if your school has one. Or see
our booklet on group flights, student ships, and the bar-
gain airline.
Add low costs for getting around Britain. Our booklets
tell you about 3(-per-mile buses and the rail-and-boat
pass that takes you up to 1,000 miles for $30. Consider
hiking too. Wordsworth did.
Multiply the number of your nights in Britain by cost

with convivial British students.
And the booklets mention the fantastically low cost of
concerts and plays in Britain. You can sit in "the gods"-
galleries up near Heaven-for 75¢. A lot of outdoor enter-
tainment, like concerts and folk-singing, is free.
Clip the coupon. Add everything up. And tell your
parents you can spend this summer in Britain for about
what it costs to hang around the house.
