This is the text of an exclusive interview with James R.
Tindall graduating Associate Sports Editor of the Michigan
Daily. The interviewer is H. W. Rock, of Hill-Washtenaw, Ann
Rock-Well Jim .
JRT-Call me Tindall, everyone does.
Rock-OK Tindall, what are your feelings as your last finals
JRT-I feel scared.
Rock-Could you elaborate on that?
Rock-Perhaps you could tell me what your most gratifying
experience has been here at the University.
JRT-Certainly finding out that the University of Minnesota-
Duluth has formed a "Blueline Booster Club" is very gratifying.
Don't your want to ask me about my future plans?
Rock-Yes, Tindall, what are your future plans?
JRT-I'm glad you asked, Rock. I plan to go to Bus Ad grad
school at any school that will accept me. If I don't get in, I am
going to practice saluting.
Rock-You have traveled quite a bit with the Daily haven't
JRT-Yes, I have been to California and Grand Forks, North
Dakota, just to mention two places. I left a bit of my heart and a
$20 bill in 'Frisco, and I saw a hockey game when it was 20 below
inside the rink in the great state of North Dakota where people
are insane about their hockey.
Rock-That is interesting.
JRT-I thought so.
Rock-Do you have any advice for your readers?
JRT-I don't believe in Polonius-like advice such as "To
thine own U be Blue."
Rock-You must have heard some great quotes in your locker
room sessions, could you share one with us now?
JRT-Surely. Walking behind a girl and her guy I heard the
girl ask, "Do you think Hermes' body is detailed?"
Rock-Have you done anything outstanding in your three-and-
one-half years on campus?
JRT-Yes, I have stepped on the 'M' only once.
Rock-What, in your opinion, are the major issues facing the
University in the coming years?
JRlT-Certainly the Aesop-Hiawatha conflict is a real thorn
in the paw, but I might suggest that the intramural crisismay
turn a few heads in the future.
Roc-What was the greatest victory that you have ever seen
in any Mic igan sport?
JRT-The Daily Libels tromping the UAC Rabble.
Victory. Libels Forever?
Rock-What about the Rose Bowl game. Didn't you go to
JRT-I thought I could go this year.
Rock-But you watched the game on TV didn't you?
JRT-Yes, but I was playing bridge too, so I didn't really
see much of it.
Rock-What is your favorite color?
Rock-Andyour favorite name?
Rock-Don't you have any farewell thought at all?
JRT-Well there is an original, unpublished quatrain that
might be appropriate, though out of season:
I hear another screendoor summer slam,
Behind my fleeting jeans and black gym shoes,
Though I bound lightly down grey backporch steps,
To unwatered backyards of memories.
