There was no elaboration to
Ford's statement except that Gil-

a meeting at Lions headquarterst
at 11 a.m.
Presumably the meeting will be;
for Gilmer's formal introduction:
as the Lions' new coach.

who quit recently.
Owner William Clay Ford of the
Lions said Gilmer had accepted a
three-year contract, but terms
were not disclosed.
The hiring of Gilmer followed
the mid-December firings of Wil-
son's five assistant coaches and
Wilson's later resignation.
Wilson walked out on Ford in
a huff, complaining he could not
work under conditions imposed
by Ford. Wilson reportedly had
been deprived of much authority
he previously held.
The announcement of Gilmer's
employment came in a terse state-
ment by a Lions spokesman.
Tickets for tomorrow's basket-
ball game against Illinois and
tonight's and tomorrow night's
hockey games against North
Dakota are still on sale at the
Athletic Ticket Office at State
The ticket office will be open
from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. today.
Hockey tickets still not sold
may be purchased at the games.
Any remaining basketball
tickets will be sold Saturday
morning at the ticket office.
"This is the first week in a long
time that we are able to concen-I
trate on past performances,"
Strack pointed out. "With exams
and our tight schedule, we have
not had much time to practice."
Strack was of course disap-
pointed in the Holiday Tourna-
ment results. His team defeated
Manhattan, 90-77, but squeaked
by Princeton, 80-78. When Prince-
ton All-American Bill Bradley

Bradley scored 41 points and was
voted the tournament's MVP
award. "He's a fine ball player
with moves similar to those of
Terry Dischinger (Detroit Pis-

"We did not play as hard as we
are accustomed to," Strack ex-

Michigan built up a 16-point
lead against St. John's in the sec-
ond half with Cazzie Russell scor-
ing 10 points in four minutes and
Pomey and Bill Buntin combining
for seven more. The Wolverines
stymied the St. John's offense
during that period as they em-
ployed a full-court press. "We had
to stop pressing when we quit
scoring," Strack explained.
Michigan made mistakes and
had difficulty scoring in the last
part of the second half and saw
their lead disappear. In addition
to their shooting dry spell, Russell
and Buntin each acquired their
fourth foul of the game. Russell

Tommy Prothro of Oregon State
said Wednesday a study of the
Rose Bowl game films convinces
him that Michigan is the greatest,
football team he has ever seen.
Michigan defeated Oregon State
34-7 in the game.
"We had some bad luck and we
had some bad lapses, but we hadj
those all year and managed toI
recover," said Prothro.
"This time our opponent was
just plainly superior. I don't know'
if we played better all year, but
I don't think so. If we played that
well in every game, no one else
would have beaten us.
"The pictures are really inter-
esting. There were times when our
players blasted Michigan players
at full speed and only wound up
flat on their backs with the other
people on top of them. I've never
seen such hitting."

Crisler pointed out yesterday'
that the colleges have no author-

breaching their own agreements.
But he pointed out, "One possible
answer is to withhold co-opera-

"College teams frequently give
the scouts information and appra-

also allowed to attend practice
sessions and are given game
