Cagers Brace for MSU Challenge



Female Cheerers Supported.
By 'M' Gymnast Hamilton
Since outlining my reasons for advocating girl cheerleaders here
at Michigan in an earlier column, I have spoken with John Hamilton,
co-captain of the cheerleading squad.
Although Hamilton's job is perhaps a bit in jeopardy should girl
cheerleaders be allowed, he surprisingly accepted my original pro-
posal that girls could complement, not replace, the existing male
squad at basketball games.
Hamilton admitted that in the past the cheerleaders at basket-
ball games have been ineffective in leading the crowd and creating
spirit. "We've always had difficulty at the basketball games because
people are more interested in just watching rather than also cheer-
ing. There's no doubt that the intellectual caliber of the student body
here makes it just that much harder to stimulate the crowd, also.
I think that some well-chosen girl cheerleaders out on the court
with us might help."
Upon further discussion, he enumerated his reasons for support-
ing girl cheerleaders.
"First, some of our cheerleaders are now gymnasts, therefore,
it's difficult to get a good turnout at all of the basketball games
due to their conflicting schedules. Since girls do not have this
difficulty I think they could help alleviate this problem.
"Second, I would like to see a lot of spirit from the fans and I
know that the basketball players would too. The girls would probably
get more response from the crowd
than we do just because they're :
girls. It shouldn't make any dif-
ference if girls are helping to r
create that enthusiasm.
"And third, I think some high-
ly-skilled women mixed with men
could present a well-balanced
cheering squad, however, only if
the present level of cheering .
would not be sacrificed for the
addition of girls." a
Looking at the present situa-
tion, Hamilton felt that it was
time to co-educate some of the W
University's tradition - bound in- -
stitutions, although he defended

male cheerleaders for the football X

and more effective. Because we do not have an onfield mike system
at the Stadium, the stunts are our best way for gaining the crowd's
attention, and I wouldn't want to see that part of the University
When queried whether or not he felt girls could be worked
into the routines, Hamilton replied, "I think that men, especially
divers and gymnasts, have better coordination for the mini-
tramps than girls do. But if I could get some girls skilled in this
area who would practice four times a week and I felt that they
could perform'well, I would work them in.
"I do think though that we could use some girl cheerleaders for
the basketball games."

Anderson also pointed to his

Tough Foes in. MSU Relays

The Michigan cindermen will
confront some of their strongest
competition this season today as
the Wolverines journey to East
Lansing to participate in the
forty - second annual Michigan
State Relays.
A huge field will be attracted to
Jenison Field House for the Re-
lays, which are recognized as the
official start of the indoor track
season in the Midwest. The meet
will draw a total of 519 athletes
from 25 colleges and universities.
Eight Conferences
The entries include representa-
tives from eight athletic confer-
ences, mostly from the Midwest,
Mountains, and Plains states.
Several independents have also
placed entries in the Relays, in-
cluding a contingent from the Air
Force Academy.
Other Big Ten schools entered
in the meet besides the Wolver-
ines, defending indoor champions
of the conference, are Indiana,
Purdue, and hcst Michigan State.
Missouri, defending indoor and
outdoor champion of the Big
Eight, has placed several of its
top performers in the Relays.
Oklahoma State and Kansas
State, also in the Big Eight, will
be represented.
Included in the collegiate field
are Cincinnati, Drake and Wichita
from the Missouri Valley; Bowling
Green State, Miami of Ohio, To-
ledo, and Western Michigan 'of the
Mid-American; and Buffalo State,
Ferris State, Loyola, Notre Dame,
Southern Illinois, and Air Force,
all independents.
Defending Champs
Ten of the 18 defending cham-
pions of the 1964 Relays will be
present. Schools that managed
victories in the six relay events
have much of their personnel re-
Michigan's mile relay team won
the 1964 event in a time of 3:17.9.
The Wolverine squad today will
consist of Marion Hoey, Brian
O'Neill, Bob Gerometta, and
Olympian Kent Bernard. The mile
relay team has been triumphanta

in all three of its previous efforts
this year. Last week in the Mich-
igan Federation Relays, Bernard
anchored the Wolverines to a
3:18.7 time.
An impressive four-man unit
from Missouri will defend its title
in the two-mile relay. Th'e four-

rad, William Rawson and Robin
Lingle turned in a record clocking
of 7:33.3 to win the event last
year. The same outfit went on to
better their time in the outdoor
season with a 7:20.6.
One of the Best
Lingle, the Tigers' anchor man
in the two-mile relay, is rated as
one of America's top middle dis-
tance men. He was also the win-
ner of the 1000-yard run in the
1964 MSU Relays. The Wolverines
will have Dave Legacki and Joel
Lewitz pitted against him today.
Western Michigan has two de-
fending relay teams entered, the
shuttle hurdle relay squad, and
the distance medley foursome.
Michigan will provide strong com-
petition for the Broncos in the
distance medley. A Wolverine
squad made up of Dan Hughes,

Wolverine sprinters entered in
the 60-yard dash include Dorie
Reid, Willie Brown, Dave Cooper,
and Carl Ward. Reid and Brown
finished first and second, respec-
tively, in the Federation meet.
Reid's best time this season has
been a blistering :06.2.
The captain of the Michigan
cindermen, Bernard, will compete
in his specialty, the 600-yard run.
Bernard will be attempting to un-
seat last year's Relays champion
in the event, Bill Selbe of Kansas
State. h
