Gymnasts

Make

Finals,

Still Disappointed

By JOHN SISKIN
Although a third place finish in
the toughest gymnastic regional
in the country is nothing to be
ashamed of, Michigan's Wolverines
still aren't satisfied.
Coach Newt Loken summed up
Saturday's showing in Wheaton,
Illinois by commenting that "If we
hadn't received some bad breaks
we easily could have finished sec-

and and possibly have given
Southern Illinois a little more of
a battle for first."
SIU, which will host the NCAA
finals March 30 and 31, showed
that they are beyond question a
heavy favorite to sweep to their
second consecutive national cham-
pionship. The Salukis, demon-
strating prowess in every event,
garnered a whopping 189 points

to easily outdistance the field.
Big Ten champion Iowa placed
second with 184.65, barely edging
Michigan at 184.10. Illinois came in
fourth with 180.60 while Michi-
gan State ended a disappointing
fifth with 170.45.
Excellent Job
As has been customary all sea-
son long, the Wolverines excelled
in floor exercise and trampoline,
earning the team title in both
events. Dave Jacobs, who seems
to thrive on pressure, came up
with two brilliant performances,
scoring 9.35 in floor ex and somer-
saulting his way to a superb 9.5
on tramp.
The high bar, usually one of
Michigan's best events, proved an
unfortunate stumbling block at
Wheaton. Sophomore Mike Sasich,
who has rapidly matured into a
smooth-working performer, failed
to match the effort which earned
him third place in the Big Ten
meet. According to Loken, "the
high bar was real slow, and Mike
wasn't able to get his routine
underway." Sasich was given a
7.0-after averaging around 9.2
all season.
In vaulting, the Wolverines were

will not send their entire teams
to Carbondale; only those who fin-
ished in the top eight in each
event will make the trip for the
Illini and Spartans.
Perhaps the Wolverines were
fortunate in making their mistakes
at Wheaton than at Carbondale in
two weeks. Because in this last
chance, mistakes are a luxury no
team can afford.

dealt another unexpected blow
when Phil Fuller missed both his
vaults. The mat slipped out from
under his feet on the first vault,
causing a loss of valuable points,
while he stumbled on the second
and received only a 6.0.
Fred Rodney, scoring an 8.95,
and Chip Fuller, with a 9.15 help-
ed take up some of the slack in
vaulting, butPhip's sub-par per-

formanse definitely hurt. Another
tough break came on the rings,
where soph Rich Kenney also
slipped from his usual fine form,
receiving an 8.8.
Despite these failures, Michigan
still managed to finish in the top
three, and thus qualify the entire
team for the national finals. Il-

OVER THE COURSE of the past year, the problems and
dangers confronting Student Government Council have mounted
to such an extent that the usefulness of the Council as a func-
tional element of the student body is now questionable.
It seems then that a crucial issue in this year's election
must be built around the direction that the Council will take
in the future.
Since the mood or .feeling of the student body at the Univer-
sity is that an increase in Student Power is a desirable direction
in which the Council should take leadership, it is evident that
the platform presented by candidate THOMAS R. COPI provides
the only realistic evaluation of the situation and bases future
action of the Council on such an evaluation.
Essentially Copi recognizes the existence of double standards
which do exist in the University Community. Indeed it does
seem ridiculously hypocritical that students who are not even
given control over their own affairs should be allowed to make
major decisions in the University Community.
Perhaps what Copi advocates-total elimination of rules
governing personal conduct in dormitories, fraternities and
sororities-is idealistic and seemingly difficult to achieve under
the present circumstances.
But at least It is now not hypocritical in that Copi has not,
as all previous Council Presidents have; chosen to ignore that.
basic facts and factors with which the supposedly 'free' student
at the University is confronted.
THE EVENTS OF THE PAST YEAR-the summary dis-
regard of student and faculty interest in connection with the
HUAC subpoena, the ranking referendum, the sit-in ban, the
general administrative disrespect for student viewpoints-indi-
cate the present line of action which the Council has followed.
is in many ways lacking.
Perhaps Copi, too, will fail. But certainly starting with the
basics, those practical and factual problems which relate most

directly to the student, is a more worthwhile approach.
Copi's opponent, Bruce Kahn, has been an SGC member
during the past year. On Nov. 18, SGC broke its ties with the
Office of Student Affairs. By so doing, the veto power of the
Vice-President for Student Affairs, Richard Cutler, was annulled.
SGC was free to do whatever it pleased.
What did it do?
Did Council go to the dorms to discuss the changing of
women's hours? Did Council go to the dorms and ask the resi-
dents whether they felt there were any useful functions per-
formed by house mothers or Resident Advisors? Did they do
anything at all to answer the problems of dorm life and the
total lack of educational excitement there?
The Council didn't.
IT HAS CONTINUED to operate as if the shadow of Rich-
ard Cutler were over its head. The Council, Bruce Kahn along
with the rest, settled for study commission instead of change.
Kahn has proposed a structural change in the Council by
which the membership of the body would be increased to 100 to
provide one representative for every 300 students. This too
seems pointless.
There is surely no great gain for the individual student by
"decreasing" the number of his fellow constituents to 300. And
the technical complications which would be created by such
a system make it highly impractical in any case.
A 100-MEMBER COUNCIL might meet for days without
arriving at a concrete decision. And there is no reason to sup-
pose that the 17 candidates in this year's election would not
provide a representative cross-section of campus opinion.
It is therefore far better to make an attempt to create a
Council that will start at the beginning (with; the problem of
in locoparentis), and this would be a Council led by Copi.
What Kahn's proposal will lead to is a Council that Is
unable to reach the problems and concerns of the individuaJ
student in the dormitories, fraternities, and sororities.
To ignore the individual any longer would be to further the
double standard which the University is perpetrating on the
student.
THE ACTING SENIOR SPORTS EDITORS wish to disasso-
ciate themselves from the endorsement presented Sunday on the
editorial page. We feel that the endorsement, as it was pre-
sented, is a misrepresentation of our views as Senior Editors of
The Michigan Daily.
We wish to endorse Thomas R. Copi and Regina Rogoff for
President and Executive Vice-President of Student Government
Council.
