Approval by the Regents is all
that is needed to insure Michigan
of having Tartan Turf at the
stadium and on one practice field
next year.
"The Regents will consider each
field separately," said Athletic Di-
rector Don Canham at yesterday's
IM Board meeting, "but right now
we see no difficulty in getting the
Regents to okay both fields."
Canham said at an earlier In-
tramural Board meeting that he
considered the fields to be an all
or nothing proposition. He said
that there was no point in putting
the artificial turf- down in the
s adium if the team didn't have a
field to practice on.
Canham also stated that the in-
creasing cost of artificial turfs
made it imperative that the Uni-
versity act now, as Minnesota
Mining and Manufacturing, the
makers of Tartan Turfy have
agreed to honor their original of-
fer for installation of the surface
if the University acts this year.
Failure to act this year might
cause an additional delay as Tar-
tan Turf orders have already be-
gun to backlog due to the ever
increasing demand for it.

Harvey Schiller of the Rugby
Club related the ruggers exper-
ience on an synthetic turf field in
Flint this past weekend to the
The contest was played on Astro
Turf, not on Tartan Turf, and
Schiller said that the difference
was noticeable. "Astro Turf seems
to be more abrasive," he said. Syn-
thetic turf also retains heat and
several ruggers reported blisters
after the contest
Because of the need for drain-
age, it is necessary to have the
center of a synthetic field ele-
vated about 18 inches above the
edges. Schiller noted that this
made it difficult to see across the
field, but this should not prove to
be a serious problem.
The direct benefits of artificial
playing surfaces are numerous.
Annual resodding will no longer be
necessary and maintenance will be
easier, as the field is vacuumed
Neither rain nor sleet nor snow
shall mar the many contests to
be played on the fields, and even
gloom of night will suffer a set-
back because the practice field
will be lighted for club sport and
intramural use at night.

U.S.-USSR to meet in track;
Noc-A-Homa loses teepee
By The Associated Press
! LOS ANGELES-The dual track meet series between the
United States and the Soviet Union, discontinued in 1966 when the
Russians protested U.S. involvement in Vietnam, is on again-the day
before America is to land a man on the moon.
The president of the Southern Pacific Association of the Amateur
Athletic Union, Al Schoenfield, in a letter to the Los Angeles Coliseum
Commission, said Monday the meet would be held July 18-19 in the
He also said a team made up of British Commonwealth athletes
would compete in the meet.

0 ATLANTA-Chief Noc-A-Homa had a new teepee last night'
and was prepared to defend it.
The Atlanta Braves' mascot, burned out Monday night when his
smoke bombs for Clete Boyer's homer touched off a fire, put up a new!
teepee during the day and took the field last night in full fireman's
The chief wore a red fire helmet, a fireman's coat and carried a
red fire extinguisher on his back when he ran to the teepee just before
the start of the Braves' battle with the St. Louis Cardinals.
The teepee, just back of the left field fence, was burned out
Monday night and the chief, a Chippewa-Ottawa Indian named Levi
Walker, charged he had been sabotaged.
"Somebody fooled with my smoke bombs," he said.
The crowd gave him a rousing cheer when he ran out to his re-
furbished teepee.
0 BUFFALO, N.Y.-The Buffalo Bills once again have failed to
sign All-American O. J. Simpson, and owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. said
yesterday he would consider trading Simpson.
Wilson, in a statement released by the American Football League
team's office here, said he met Monday in Detroit with Simpson, his
agent, Churck Barnes, and his lawyers, David Lockton.
Simpson, the 1968 Heisman Trophy winner from Southern Cali-
fornia, reportedly has been asking Wilson for a $600,000 salary and a
$500,000 loan.

This will put off Benvenuti's
next title defense. His six months
period of grace to defend the 160-
pound division title expires on
June 14. The World Boxing Asso-
ciation insists he must defend it
next against Luis Rodriguez, the
WBA's No. 1 contender.

"It will probably be against
Rodriguez," said Nino, "but it
can't be for some time now."
Matchmaker Teddy Brenner
said he would like to put Tiger,
the former middleweight and light
heavyweight champion, against
Benvenuti in a title fight.
- "If Tiger can't make it, I'd like
to match Emile Griffith against
