Swim Club Gets N(


Women's competitive swimming
.s coming into its own this year
at the University.
Two reasons for the newfound
importance- of women's speed
Swimming on campus are the
numerous record performances of
University swimmers during the
past season, and the addition of
many new, talented freshmen to
the University of Michigan Speed
Swim Club.
The University of Michigan
Speed Swim Club is sanctioned
and sponsored by the Women's
Athletic Association and repre-
sents the University in women's
swimming circles.
The club's coach, Mrs. Rose-
mary Dawson, is quick to em-

phasize that not all the club's
affiliates are stars. She says that
"The club strives to help any-
one interested in competitive
swimming at the University."
The records have been estab-
lished mainly by the versatile
250-yd. women's indoor breast-
stroke recordholder, Susan Rogers.
She finished second only to Chris
Von Saltza in individual points
at the Women's Nationals held
last April. In addition Miss Rogers
holds the American record for the
100-yd. breaststroke Indoor event.
New freshmen entering the Uni-
versity and expected to compete
for the University of Michigan
Speed Swim Club are plentiful.

Eliminate Bowl Games,
MS U's Daugherty Says

f soriated Press Sports writer
Duffy Daugherty, football coach
of Michigan State, thinks they
ought to get rid of bowl games.
He would replace them with an
orderly program of NCAA play-
offs and a series of all-star games.
There are too many bowl games
and their elimination would re-
move objections some educators
have toward prolonging the foot-
ball season to January, says the
Michigan State coach.
His suggestions are for an
NCAA playoff to name a legiti-
mate national champion within
three weeks after the regular
season ended and senior bowl
games between all-stars of the
various conferences, rather than
the multitude of bowl games which
now crowd the calendar.
Spread Revenue
The television revenue from
playoff and bowl games should be
spread through the country, he
"Eventually I hope the NCAA
adopts a football playoff like the
one in basketball or baseball,"
Daigherty declares. "They have
playoffs in nearly all the other
sports, so why not in football?
We could complete them in three
weeks and have an established na-
tional champion. Polls don't de-
termine which team is the best in
Home Game
Tickets Left
"Contrary to widespread popu-
lar opinion, tickets are still avail-
able to all home football games
this fall."
Don Weir, University ticket
manager, had this heartening
news for many students who
thought themselves unable to pur-
chase extra tickets for family
members and friends. Weir em-
phasized that there are tickets
available for both the Michigan
State game, Oct. 14, and the Ohio
State game, Nov. 30 during
Thanksgiving vacation.
'Although we are way ahead of
last year's sales," commented
Weir,. "many tickets are as yet
unpurchased for most home
Scarce for Two
He went on to add that tickets
are scarce for only two games,
those against Michigan State and
Ohio State; yet, despite the fact
there are not numerous tickets
remaining for these games, seats
can be purchased at the ticket
"There is much space remain-
ing for the two traditionally
popular occasions of Homecoming
and Band Day," said Weir. Band
Day, in which 197 different school
bands will participate, is Sep-
tember 30, when the Wolverines
tackle UCLA. The Band Day pa-
gent has become increasingly
popular each year as the caliber
and size of the colorful halftime
performance increases.
Homecoming this year ,will be
against Purdue, October 21. Many
good seats remain unclaimed for
this classic which comes at the
climax of the football season.

the country. The only way to find
out is to have them play."
Major Champs
He added that "we could take
the champions from the six major
conferences-the Big Eight, thej
Southeastern Conference, t h e
Southwest Conference, the Big
Ten, the Atlantic Coast and Pa-
cific Coast-and add two teams
at large to take care of the pow-
erful independents and other
strong teams that might come
from places like the Big Six.
"The first week after the reg-
ular season, there'd be four play-
off games. They could be held at
the Cotton Bowl, the Rose Bowl,
the Sugar Bowl and the Orange
Bowl, for example. The second
week there'd be two games be-
tween the semi-finalists. The
third week we'd have the cham-
pionship game."
He said that if bowl games still
were wanted they could be played
as senior bowls-maybe have the
seniors of the Southwest Confer-
ence play the Big Ten seniors 'in
the Cotton Bowl and games like
that. They'd use players who had
completed their eligibility.
"Bowl games are promoted by
civic minded committees who want
to bring people into town and pro-
mote their cities," says Daugherty.
"They don't keep the money. In-
stead of losing their games the
big bowls would actually be gain-
ing a game or two by having the
playoffs and the senior bowls. Al-
so you wouldn't have the same
teams grabbing the big bowl plums
every year. The same teams would
very seldom get to the finals."
Daughtery would like to see the
TV revenue split between all the
teams participating in the play-
off scheme. That could amount
to more than 100 schools. "It
would bring in revenue which is
sorely needed by many schools
to operate other sports which
don't make money the way foot-
ball does," Daugherty observes.

ew Stars
Sue Clifford of Miami Shores,
Florida, is counted on by the
swim club's coach, Mrs. Dawson,
to bolster the swim club's al-
ready fine freestyle relay team.

freestyle in :58.0, Sue has done
the 100-yd. backstroke in 1:06.
Barbara Nullmeyer from New
York barely missed making the
Olympic team last year, losing a
berth on the squad by a mere
tenth of a second. She has been
in the finals of the Women's Na-
tionals in both freestyle and
Local fans are familiar with
another entering freshman swim-
mer. She is Sue Thrasher of Ann
Arbor who has previously been a
standout performer on the Ann
Arbor Swim Club, also coached
by Mrs. Dawson.
Placed Second
Miss Thrasher was second in
the national long distance (three
miles) freestyle by less than a
second. She placed in both the
100 and 200 meter butterfly
events at the outdoor women's
nationals which were held at
Philadelphia August 8-11.
June Mori from Japan, Becky
Walther who is Ohio Women's
diving champion, and Sarah Watts
from Washington, D.C., are all
top notch divers who are enter-
ing the University as Freshmen.
Carolyn Coffman, from Wash-
ington, D.C., is a national stand-
out butterflier. Lejune Rogers
from Detroit, according to Mrs.
Dawson, "may be the first Negro
swimmer to better one minute for
the women's 100-yd. freestyle."
Strong Nucleus
The addition of so many tal-
ented freshmen enhances an al-
ready fine bunch of returning
swimmers, which include Eileen
Murphy who finished 4th in the
100-yd. backstroke event this
summer at the nationals, Connie
Mayzies, Marty Sinn and the
speedy Jones sisters, Marsha and
Returning sophomore divers who
all were National semifinalists in-
clude Karen Ryan, Gretchen
Groth, and Linda Lyle.
Besides the many well-known
women swimmers who have com-
peted for the swim club, the Uni-
versity also has in attendance as
a sophomore Olympic gold medal
winner, Joan Spillane.
Women's Meets Held
A third factor which should
greatly popularize women's com-
petitive swimming at the Univer-
sity is the innovation of inter-
university swim meets between
the University of Michigan swim
club and the University of Toron-
to, Bowling Green, Western On-
tario, and Michigan State.
Swim club coach, Rosemary
Dawson is the daughter of Matt
Mann, predecessor to present
men's varsity swimming coach
Gus Stager. Mrs. Dawson spent the
summer coaching swimmers in
Japan and Puerto Rico and opti-
mistically looks forward to taking
her swim club to the nationals in

White Sox
Sign Joyce
For Bonus
Mike Joyce, star sophomore
hurler for the Michigan baseball
team last season, has signed with
the Chicago White Sox for a bonus
of approximately $45,000.
Joyce joins last year's Michigan
standout, Bill Freehan, in the pro-
fessional ranks. Freehan signed
earlier this season with the Tigers
for a $100,000 bonus.
Michigan baseball coach Don
Lund learned of Joyce's actions
only after the contract had been
signed. "I wasn't completely sur-
prised with Mike's signing," said
Lund, "although I didn't know
about it officially, I heard it from
the grapevine.
Own Decision
"It was a decision Mike had to
make for himself," continued the
Michigan mentor, "he has always
wanted to make his career ini pro-
fessional baseball; he discussed
it with his dad and that was it."

Houston Tops but AFL Race Tighter



after its head start on the rival
National Football League last
In last week's games, the Hous-
ton Oilers, defending AFL cham-
pions, swamped the Oakland
Raiders, 55-0; the New York Ti-
tans squeaked by the Boston Pa-
triots, 21-20; the Denver Broncos
downed the Buffalo Bills, 22-10;
and the San Diego Chargers sur-
prized the Dallas Texans, 24-10.
This weekend, Denver will face
Boston in a Saturday night game
and New York and Buffalo, and
Oakland and San Diego will
square off in Sunday afternoon
Cannon Back
Houston's offense still centers
around Billy Cannon and aging
quarterback George Blanda. Also,
the Oilers hope to get a full sea-
son of action out of former Ohio
State All-American fullback, Bob
White, who was hobbled almost
all of last season with leg in-
juries. If they are to repeat as
champions, however, they must
improve'their offensive line, which
was singularly ineffective during
the second half of last season on
running plays.
The Buffalo Bills had the
league's best defense last year but
finished third in the Eastern di-
vision, principally because of of-
fensive difficulties. With the re-
tirement of Tommy O'Connell,
the Bills will go all the way with.

Defensive Problems
The New York Titans, on the
other hand, face exactly the op-
posite problem - they scored more
points than any other team in the
AFL yet finished with only a 7-7
record. Heading the free-scoring
offense is quarterback Al Dorow,
former Michigan Stater who com-
pleted 26 touchdown passes !astj
year. Other offensive sparkplugs
are halfback Don Maynard, ends
Art Powell, and Joe Biscaha. In
order to hold their ground in the
Eastern Division, however, the Ti-
tans must make considerable de-
fensive improvements.
The Boston Patriots plan to in-
stall a great many newcomers on
both their offensive and defensive
teams in an attempt to improve on
their poor 5-9 showing of last year.
Babe Parilli appears to have taken
over the starting quarterback slot
from the ancient Butch Songn.
Injuries Hurt
Injuries kept the Dallas Texans
down to an 8-6 record last season.

Texans lost three games by a
total of four points. The Texans
