Michigan's progressive .Board in Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics has struck again. It's now going to cost one dollar to see
Michigan's basketball team perform at lovely Yost Field House.
While my fraternity brothers called Mr. Crisler dirty names, and
damned the new policy, I couldn't help but laugh when I think
of the situation four short years ago.
Then, if they charged as much as 25 cents, the Michigan cagers
would have played for the bats. I remember those wonderful teams
of Bob Brown and Scott Maentz and Charlie Higgs. Michigan was
the joke of the Big Ten and nobody cared. Then there was John
Harris and John Oosterbaan with Bobby Cantrell and still nobody
cared. Then came Bill Buntin, and they started caring. Now they're
charging one dollar to see the games.
Why four years ago they wouldn't schedule a basketball game on
the same night as a hockey game. Next year they won't schedule
a hockey game the same night as a basketball game, and the hockey
team is the NCAA champions.
Football hasn't changed much in four years. The "champions of
the west" have gone from bad to mediocre to terrible to mediocre.
Two years ago I didn't think Michigan could beat Michigan State in
The hockey team has gone from good to better. Red Berenson
was the greatest, but when he left the team collapsed. This year,
they brought Al Renfrew a much deserved NCAA title, although some
people still don't know how they did it.
Don Canham's track teams have to be the New York Yankees
of the Big Ten-when the pressure is on they come through. They've
nailed down at least one title in each of my four years here.
The swimming teams have been brides maids for four years,
constantly the second team in a one-team meet. The situation looks
like it's starting to change, though.
Michigan can boast one of the finest college coaches in the
world in Cliff Keen. Nearing his 40th year as Michigan's wrestling
coach, he's finished lower than third only twice.
Newt Loken has started a dynasty at Michigan with his great
gym teams. Although they lost at the NCAA's this year, I've seen
three straight Big Ten titles and there will be many more to come.
Bill Murphy's netmen have performed well. But, like the swim-
mers, another team is just too strong for them. Marty Riessen
graduates from Northwestern this year, so the tennis team will be
Then there are the golfers, Bert Katzenmeyers hapless golfers.
Some day they'll be champions, but don't hold your breath.
Before I complete this last sports story of my career, I have two
First of all, minor sports-all but football, basketball, baseball,
and hockey-go through a lengthy and useless dual meet season be-
fore the conference championships. These meets mean nothing. A
team can lose everyone of them and if it wins the conference meet,
it goes on the record books as a conference champion. It's like 12 ex-
hibition games and one official game. Something should be done to
give these dual meets meaning to the athletes and fans. Maybe the
dual meets could count 50 per cent and the conference meet 50 per
Secondly, I'm in favor of the $1 for basketball tickets because
I think the fans should pay to see such a great team. However, if
the students are going to pay, let them have some efficiency. Let's
hope they can buy a reserved seat and come to the game when it
starts, not two hours before. The basketball ticket situation was
pathetic this year. Let's straighten it out.
Finally, thanks for suffering through my stories and especially
this one. I hope I have made THE EXTRA POINT.

When will the bubble burst?
Or will it burst at all?
This is a crucial weekend for
the Michigan baseball team as it
invades second-place Minnesota
this afternoon for a single game,
then flies to Iowa City to face
the 1-5 Hawkeyes tomorrow.
Clyde Barnhart, who has come
up with two Friday afternoon com-
plete game wins in the last two
weekends of Big Ten action, will
be on the mound this afternoon
against the Gophers whose 5-1
mark places them closest to the
Wolverines' perfect 6-0.
The Gophers are by no means
through after today, as Michigan
State, also 5-1, comes in tomorrow
for a big doubleheader.
The Wolverines will face the
Spartans in a special post-exam
celebration next weekend. The
traditional rivalry will be on dis-
play at Ferry Field next Saturday
at 1 p.m. in a doubleheader.
Then a week from Tuesday, the
Wolverines will journey up to
East Lansing for the wrapup of
the three-game set.
In the Iowa twin bill tomorrow,
Coach Moby Benedict is expecting
to use righthanders Bill Wahl and
Marlin Pemberton. Both juniors
are 2-0 in the Big Ten and have
each worked a pair of complete
The Wolverines have raised
themselves in the statistical de-
partments of the Big Ten, but
their season totals are not quite as
In the conference, the Wolver-
ines are third in hitting with a
.259 mark. They lead in runs, fewet
est runs permitted, are second in
fewest errors committed, and also
rank second in stolen bases.
In the individual departments,
only Ron Tate with a .353 in the
Big Ten is among the ten leading
hitters. Sophomore rightfielder
Bob Gilhooley is the next Wolver-
ine on the list with a .292 aver-
age, good for 18th place.
Dave Campbell is tied for the
lead in home runs with two in
the Big Ten, and Tate leads the'
conference in stolen bases with
four. His nine walks place him
far and away in front of the rest
of the conference.
The Big Ten's leading hitter is
Fred Reichardt of Wisconsin. The
major league prospect has 13 hits
in 22 times at bat for a .591 aver-
age. Arnie Chonko, Ohio State's
burly first baseman, and John Bie-
denbach of Michigan State, are
next on the list of hitters with
even .500 marks.
Following are the Michigan sta-
tistics for the entire season:

THE TROUBLE WITH, SPORTS SHIRTS IS
WHEN YOU WEAR AN ORDINARY TIE WITH ONE
YOU LOOK LIKE A GANGSTER
H OWEVER there are times that are a little too dressy for an unadorned throat (as when you're
wearing a blazer), and for these the Ascot is finding increasing favor. Women apparently find
them madly attractive, and men like their go-to-hell feel once they get around to wearing them. The
trick seems to be in tying them; actually, there is nothing to it. All you do is slip the Ascot around
your neck, inside the collar, and loop one end over the other below your adam's apple; and loop it
twice so it won't slip down your chest after awhile. * It just so happens that, foreseeing this demand,
we have gone into the Ascot game. You will find a nice selection at your Eagle Ascot store, which
is the same store where you buy Eagle Shirts. * Not to change the subject, but this magnificent
short-sleeve sports shirt at about $9.00 which we have portrayed here is an exclusive Eagle pattern
in two-ply cotton oxford, and comes in blue, green, or burgundy stripes-alternating with skinnier
black ones on an Eagle's Cream ground. * We also have a magnificent matching check; let's see if
PA LM LITG is a suit tailored impeccably
with the exclusive "Contour Collar" for a

polyester and wool worsted keeps you
wrinkle-free, cool and comfortable-even on
sticky days. Styled for quiet good taste in
