'No Swimmer Revolt Against AAU'-Stager

Michigan swimming Coach Gus
Stager, who admits that his ideas
are a little more radical than those
of most of his fellows, hasn't been
able to spot any movement under-
foot yet among the nation's swim-
ming coaches to strip the National
AAU of its authority.
The ruling body of virtually all
amateur sports in this country,
the AAU is curently involved in
a power struggle with the col-
legiate ,coaches in track, basket-
ball and other sports.
"We're having the same dif-
ficulties," Stager explained, "but

for us to break away from the AA J
is a more complicated situation
and I don't know if all the coaches
would want to do it."
Big-time women's swimming and
an extensive age-group program
make swimming administration
more involved than the other
sports. "Track doesn't have much
of a women's program yet," point-
ed out Stager.
Swimming coaches have prac-
tically the same grievances against
the AAU as the other coaches-
primarily that it is too large a
body to handle all sports effi-

"We just don't have enough rep-
resentation," complained Stager,
"and there are foul-ups on trips
-just little incidental things that.
annoy a person. But this is true
with any large organization.
"There probably will be a move-
ment to break away or at least
to change the AAU, but it would
take from at least three to eight
years," Stager surmised. "In such

a process we have to be sure of
what we want to do, just as the
track coaches are sure now of
what they want to do."
He emphasized, "There has been
no discussion about this yet among
the coaches."
Stager, Olympic coach for the
men's swimming team in 1960,
had nothing but praise for the
present system of selecting the

IOWA CITY-It's no news here
in Iowa and certainly not a bul-
letin in Michigan, but Iowa's foot-
ball team has hit the skids.
The Hawks, playing a schedule
about as safe as a minefield, have
dropped in national rankings and
Big Ten standings-but they've
not lost spirit.
There are several reasons why
the Hawkeyes (severely lacking
depth) are remaining conspicu-
ously "up" after three lickings
and the primary one is their next
opponent-the Michigan Wolver-
ines. Hawkeye players, coaches
and fans have an intense interest
in beating Michigan, especially in
Ann Arbor.
Three Year Interim
Since the Wolverines and Hawks
haven't played in three years,
even the seniors on both clubs
have never faced one another in
Big Ten competition. But some of
them have bumped heads in high
As you probably know, more

than any other state-a good tes-
timonial for Michigan high school
The other obvious link between
the t.wo schools is an old buddy
system network of coaches and
athletic directors.
Evashevski Alum
Iowa Director of Athletics For-
est Evashevski considers this game
especially near to his heart. Evy
captained the 1940 Wolverines
under Fritz Crisler when Bob
Flora (line coach) and Archie Ko-
dros (assistant line coach and
scout) were his teammates.
Naturally Jerry Burns wants to
win his coaching duel with Bump
Elliott, his. predecessor as back-
field coach at Iowa. The present
Hawkeye backfield coach Andy
MacDonald isn't a Michigan alum,
but he's a native of Flint and
coached Northern High School
there between 1954-60.
So there will be plenty of hand-
shaking Friday and Saturday, but
after that-watch out!
Rivalry Intense
I'm not saying Evashevski and
Crisler will be so keyed up they'll
want to coach again, but it's cer-
tain the inter-school connection
coupled with the excitement of a
first division scramble will pro-
vide for plenty of action.
Sorry this one can't be a chaM-
pionship battle between the teams,
but I think you'll see a great
game anyway. Iowa hasn't lived
up to pre-season ratings, but, like
Michigan, is still capable of
knocking off any college team in
the country.

'M' Gymnasts.
Sweep Meet
Michigan gymnasts won all
events in an informal gymnastics
meet held yesterday afternoon in
the I-M building between com-
petitors from Central Michigan,
Eastern Michigan, and the Michi-
gan varsity and freshman teams.
Gil LaRose took honors in free
exercise, parallel bars, and still
rings. Freshmen Gary Erwin and
John Hamilton won the trampoline
and tumbling events. Jim Hynds
won on the high bars and sopho-

competitors by their performance
in the Olympic Trials, regardless
of past records.
The Best Way
"It's definitely the best method
-we could never get a fairer one,"
Stager related. "We may at times
not get the best athlete, but the
athletes accept this as the fair-
est method. I don't think they
would have it any other way."
The performance of the 1960
Olympians backs Stager up, too.
In one of the most publicized in-
cidents, ex-Kansas star Jeff Far-
rell came off the operating table
to qualify for the freestyle relay
team a few days after an emer-
gency appendectomy.
Farrell on His Own
Farrell; recognized as the best
freestyler in the country then,
refused to have a special place
set aside for him. He made it on
his own an dwent on to anchor
both relay teams to world record
America's best entry in the 100-
meter freestyle, USC's Lance Lar-
son, eventually came in a photo-
finish second to Australia's John
Devitt in the most widely disputed
race of the Games. "The whole
thing was a fiasco," Stager said.
"The solution would have been to
call it a tie instantaneously."

MISU, Iowa
Favored f or
Big Ten Title
The first Big Ten Championship
of the season - cross country -
goes up for grabs this morning at
Chicago's Washington Park course
and as usual Michigan State is the
team to watch.
The Spartans have won the
title six years running. This year,
however, both Iowa and Wiscon-
sin with a possible outside threat
from Minnesota figure to give
Michigan State more trouble since
Michigan won the title in 1954.
Indiana also poses a threat.,
MSU's defending Big Ten titlest
and record holder for Washington
Park's four-mile double loop
course, Gerald Young, has already
been upset by Wisconsin's Rolf
Nielson. And Nielson was beaten
by Iowa's Jim Tucker.
Hold everything though. In last
year's meet Young beat Tucker by
six seconds. You figure it out.
The coaches haven't tried. In-
stead they figure it will be the
fifth team finisher that makes
the difference.
Iowa Coach Francis Cretzmeyer
who is seeking to vacate the sec-
ond place spot his Hawkeyes have
held the past four years, puts it
this way, "If we are to be team
champion our fifth man must get
better than 35th place." He's
afraid of Wisconsin. They've got
a good fifth man.

Magical Name
IT SEEMS STRANGE that the students at a huge University like
Michigan should follow the football fortunes of a small Pennsyl-
vania teachers college every fall Saturday, but it happens.
Few could tell you that the school lies nestled on the banks of
the Slippery Rock Creek 50 miles north of Pittsburgh on the Allegheny
,Plateau. Fewer could tell you that green and white colors fly from
the school flag much like a larger school a few miles north of here.
The magic comes from the name, Slippery Rock, more formally the
Slippery Rock State College Rockets.
Not to disillusion anyone, but "Teachers" was officially drop-
ped last January in the second name change since a college was
created at Slippery Rock in Feb., 1889. Since then the name has
evolved from State Normal School through State Teachers Col-
lege at Slippery Rock to Slippery Rock State College.
Football records are harder to trace. Little mention is made of
the Rockets before 1929 in Spaulding's Official Football Guide. The
1929 issue states that Slippery Rock "has not lost to any state teach-
ers rival since 1924," not much to go on.
Records Fade...
LOOKING BACK, however, we find the 1928 record at 7-2 and the
1927 squad unbeaten in seven known games. Beyond that the
records fade and only Mount Union games can be located--those only
to 1923.
Since then with the exception of, the 1943-44 war era when
football was discontinued, the Rockets have appeared for at least four
games each fall. And in a time when more and more schools are
dropping football everyday it's a remarkable record.
No huge crowds throng to little Thompson Field. There's no
reason to. None of the players, though all but one of this year's team
hailed from Pennsylvania's football fields, rate an All-American
Those 6'4", 250 pounders are imported by Michigan State.
These are the boys who make the headlines and win trophies,
These are the ones who make the big money in pro-football every
Sunday, not the Slippery Rock stars. In fact, no Slippery Rock
footballer has ever touched a pigskin on a National Football
League gridiron.
This year's team wasn't any different. The season ended last
week with a 20-13 victory over Clarion State College. The record,
6-2, fashioned a second successive winning season 'for Coach Charles
A. Godlasky. Last year his team was 5-1-2.
It was the first time since 1947-49 that two winning seasons
were put back to back. Only once since 1927 has a Slippery Rock
team finished a season unbeaten and untied, in 1939 when Pennsyl-
vania State Teachers College honors were collected with an 8-0
mark. The next year they lost their first two games.
The Beaver Bowl...
IRONICALLY ENOUGH, the only bowl appearance for the small
Pennsylvania Teachers Conference member came in 1958 with one
of the worst teams in school history. With a single victory and a 6-6
tie with Edinboro State to show for eight starts the Rockets hardly.
rated a bowl bid, yet there they were in the Beaver Bowl. You tell
me where it is!
Their opponent? You guessed it, good ole Edinboro. Granted a
second shot, Slippery Rock managed its second win. No 6-6 this
tme, thei sx points stood up, 6-0.
It was barely enough and hardly impressive, but the Slippery .
Rock students were happy, all 1,600. of them, and so were the
thousands at Michigan who faithfully followed the Rocket's ups
and downs.
For Slippery Rock is more than a simple teachers college. It's
a legend. The fact that the green and white flies over Thompson
Field near a winding campus river Just like at a place a little north
of here means little at Michigan Stadium when the score is announc-
ed. Slippery Rock will always be Slippery Rock, freshman beanies and
A doff of the hat to them.

Evans Scholars tripped the
powerful Sigma Alpha Epsilon B
football team 1-0 in overtime lastj
night in the all campus I-M foot-
ball playoffs.
The game went nip and tuck
throughout regulation play, and
when the clock ran out, the teams
were deadlocked in a 0-0 tie. They
went into the overtime period that
much more keyed up, and shortly


after the play started again, SAE
connected on a long pass play
nearly resulting in a score.
The Scholars held, however, and
in the next set of downs the
Scholars marched deep into SAE
territory, the drive sparked by a
long 35 yd. pass to Dave Korff to
give the winners sufficient yard-
age to win the game 1-0.
