conferences," in Strack's words.
This 6'10" center Craig Dill, is
the only current starter in the
Michigan line-up who has been
given unconditionally a 'starting
berth. Strack saysothe center job
is Dill's until somebody takes it
away from him.
And the senior Co-Captain from
Saginaw, who has been laughed
at by fans in Yost more than he
has been cheered, knows that this
is his last to chance to "make it"
after these two years of frustra-
tion. Dill worked out all summer

Strack. "He's an adequate re-
bounder, and he's got good vision,
but like Stewart, he needs to util-
ize his assets. Both of them heed
to regiment themselves and be-
come a little more disciplined."
If either Stewart or SullivanI
can't do the job, Strack has two
other sophomore forwards whom he
can turn to. Dave McClellan, 6'5"
from Toledo is "as good a shooter
as anybody on the team, while
Willy Edwards, 6'6" from Detroit,
"can rebound with the best menl
on our team," according to Strack.
"Edwards, has improved over his
play of last year more than any
other sophomore," he added.

Realizing the extreme difficulty of picking a game such as the
Southern Col-Col School of Mines battle the Daily contacted CSM's
Dr. Steven Marshall, who, besides being guest selector, offered these
helpful hints. CSM is the world's foremost mineral engineering school
with an ideal boy-girl ratio-1195 to five. The school also claims that
its 104x107-foot lighted 'M' perched on Lookout Mt., is the world's
largest. CSM, founded in 1874, also claims "The Mining Engineer"
("I'm a ramblin' wreck from Golden Tech and a helluva Engineer")
as its very own Georgia Tech not being founded until 1888. Oh, yes.
About the team. The Orediggers are given only an hour a day for
practice due to heavy class loads (168 hours to graduate), and the
practice field is, a half hour's walk from classes. Cottage Inn will

Behind Dill at center are 6'6"
Clarence Adams and 6'8" Scott
(Biggie) Montross. Says Strack
"Clarence is not as nifty as Dill
but he's a good back-up man. He
still makes mistakes though." .
Further depth at forward Is
provided by 6'5" Mark Fritz, a
junior who star'red at Birming-
ham Seaholm.
Strack said the Michigan of-
fense and defense set-up would be
basically the same as it was the,,
past three years. "We toyed with
the idea of changing things
around, but decided to go with
what we knew best. Of course, the
specific emphases will change.
There's no Cazzie now, and things
always revolved around Cazzie to
an extent."
The Wolverines' first three ball
games should provide a rough test
for the green cagers. Tennessee,
Duke and Houston are all national
powers, boasting All-America can-
didates and fancy press releases.
"The first few games might be a
little painful," concedes Strackit
"but in the long run, it could be
a blessing in disguise."


NOLfIS DIFFERENT from other organizations
which may seek your services. It is com-
pletely creative in purpose, a laboratory in
the true meaning of the word, and one of the
largest and best-equipped laboratories in
the world.
NOL is big because it has a big job to do. -NOL
creates advanced naval weapons, works
from inception to design to prototype test
and development. Research ranges from
nuclear effects to acoustics to explosives and
materials. NOL is the nation's leading R&D
establishment for Anti-Submarine Warfare,
'the Navy's principal high-speed aerobal-
listics activity, and a leader in the develop-
ment of new air and surface weapons. It is
also the Navy's primary laboratory for the
developyment of projectile, rocket and bomb
fuses. Since 1950, NOL has completed 158
new weapons and devices.
NOL has them: Mach 17 wind tunnel, 200 G
centrifuge, hypervelocity ballistic range,
IBM 7090 computer, underseas weapon
tank, antenna range, particle accelerator,

tection systems, weapon guidance systems,
influence fusing, airborne missile systems,
instrumentation for weapons evaluation and
aeroballistic research. To perform new
concept feasibility experiments.
basic and applied research in underwater
acoustic effects, oceanography, electro-
magnetic and infra-red radiation, magnetic
and semi-conductive materials. To perform
analytic studies of weapons systems. Math-

programs. Maryland University is 10 minutes

at NOL each semester.
