DeterminedStincic:ichian Star in the]

ra ing


For guys like Rick Volk and Carl
Ward the reason is clear why they
subject their bodies to such pinball
machine treatment everyday. They
like the weather in January out
in Pasadena. How do they know?
They've been there before.
But for guys like sophomore de-
fensive end Tom Stincic goals be-
come secondary; he's too busy
learning the ropes.
"Goals? I'll tell you about my
goals after -the season," Stincic
says. "This is the first Big Ten
season I've ever experienced. I'll
be better qualified after it's all
Stincic, the rangy 6'3", 217-
pound Clevelander, has managed
to best the rookie jinx and has
started every game. "Sure, it's
tough to start a sophomore," de-
fensive line coach Y C McNease
stated, "but in Tom's case it's dif-
ferent. His ability more than
makes Vp for his lack of exper-
ience. All you have to do is look
at the statistics and notice his im-
provements from game to game."
'Big Plays'
All right, let's look at the sta-
tistics. Against Oregon State ,he
made three assists; against Calil-
fornia, one tackle and four assists;
against North Carolina, four tac-
kles, . five assists, and one ,"big
play" (he dumped quarterback
Danny Talbot for a loss); against
Michigan State, two tackles and

eight assists; and last week,
against Purdue, seven tackles, four
assists, three big plays, and one
RBI (he partially blocked a punt).
The press box statistics don't
tell the whole story though. The
coaches rank the players with a

percentage grade, refering to the
number of good plays out of the
total plays participated in. For the
first five games his respective
scores were 77 per cent, 60 per
cent, 73 per cent, 86 per cent, and
87 per cent, where a score of 70
per cent is considered good enough

Although Stincic has started
every game he didn't inherit the
right end position when he be-
came a sophomore, even with the
credential of the John Maulbetsch
Award given to the freshman

ership and success.

Bump Elliott when he commented:
"A conversation between these two

Despite being a bust on the

makes up for it around the team.

SOPHOMORE DEFENSIVE END Tom Stincic hauls down Purdue quarterback Bob Griese in the
vicinity of the Boilermaker goal line on a big third down play in the third quarter of last Satur-
day's 22-21 Wolverine loss. Seven other tackles, four assists, and a partially blocked punt were also
credited to the improving Cleveland lineman in his best game to date.

Hathaway's fashionably longer-pointed London Polo collar: Discovered this
year at some of the livelier places around London. Surprising note: it looks
equally well without a pin. (Also note the perfect pattern matching around the
tip of the collar. Also on pocket and seams.)

Lap seams: All seams on a Hathaway Club Shirt are
"lapped"-just like jacket seams. This makes the seams
extraordinarily strong and flat and neat.

Sets Record
In IM Swim
John Van Dalson of Sigma
Alpha Mu set a new meet record
in the 50-yard freestyle in yes-
terday's opening rounds in the
fraternity dual - meet swimming
competition. His time of 23.9 sec-
onds eclipsed the previous mark of
24.0 seconds And was one of the
major factors in the Sammies' 46-
14 victory over Kappa Sigma.
Sixteen fraternities clashed in
yesterday's action. The remaining
houses will compete during the
rest of this week.
