iate career as well as that game as a forward. Strack kept him
there for the rest of that season
and through his junior year.
Then, before the Christmas
tournament, Strack started break-
ing him in again slowly at guard.
Somewhere along the line Pomey
began to realize that he had a
knack (to say the least) on de-
fense, and he worked on it.-
Mental Adjustment
The hard part in the switch was
a big adjustment in his way of
thinking, the thing which differ-
entiates between the forward and
guard positions.
"As you go down court you have
to always be thinking," he says.
"You have to set up your offense,
pick your plays and get it going.
As a forward you can wait for the
guards to make the choices. They
have to take over.'
s Because of all the noise typical
of Yost and anywhere else the

goes, Strack's players are pretty
much on their own. Guards have
to do most of their communicating
via their well known hand signals
-the closed fist, the open hand,
the index fingers held high in the
air-to create some order on the.
offensive half court.
Pomey considers the worst part
of his game his rebounding. But
there's more to it than meets the
eye. It's a matter of judgment.
Spending so many years as a for-
ward instills reactions in a player,
habits which are hard to break.
Urge to Rebound
"When the ball is up there," he
says, "sometimes my reaction is to
go after it, but I have to remem-
ber as a guard that I have to stay
back and stop them from trying
to break on us.
"Then there are other times
when I can't afford to lay back
GEORGE POMEY and wait for the ball, so I have to

push myself in under the boards."
The split-second decision an.
~its affects are all part of the game
Pomey has to play now.
And the game that he plays is
a running game, a pursuit game.
When he's out on the court with
9000 fans singing the Victors "the
adrenalin really starts flowing."
"His forte is defense," says
Strack. "He's_ an anticipator, a
knack you can't coach a kid in
He's probably the fastestistraight-
away runner on the team, and he's
in a condition where he can run
forever."
Few Butterflies
"The feeling is pretty light
around here before the game,.
says Pomey. "I've gotten used to
it so that I only really have those
butterflies before a big one, like
Iowa.
"But I also like to sit down by
myself somewhere and get mental-
ly ready. I believe in that as a
coach."
And coaching is Pomey's great-
est ambition. After he graduates
in June, he will go on in school
studying physical education and
counseling. Eventually he hopes to
coach on the college level.
"Realistically,"- he says, "I
don't think I could make it with
the pros. I've considered it, and
although basketball's been a big
part of my life up until now and
the experiences rich, I don't think
I'm good enough."
Strack thinks otherwise.
In My Opinion
"He's tough enough, big enough,
fast enough, and he knows his
defense. He could be a fine pro
prospect.
The Indiana game, just days
behind, is still only half real for
him. "I can't remember some of
it," he says. "It happened so- fast.
We were down with about a min-
ute to go and everyone there was
yelling 'We're number one.' It
really takes the stuff out of you.
"But we kept fighting to catch
up, and, well ... I wonder how it
feels to be number one for one
minute."
Although Pomey was sought by
various schools in the Big Eight
and all but four in the.Big Ten,
he remembers his trip to Ann Ar-
bor as the turning point.
"I came up from Illinois with
Chuck Ortman (former Michigan
great) and my high school coach
for a weekend," he tells it. "It was
a rainy day but we went golfing
with Strack. I was really impress-
ed by him and the whole coaching
staff, and I thought that I could
get a chance to play at Michigan
because of the teams they had
then,
"I was tired of running around
from school to school, and I de-
cided that Ann Arbor was the
place I wanted to be."
And the choice?
"It's the greatest thing in the
world to be playing for Michigan
now.

W HYDROMECHANICS LABORATORY facilities include this High-
Speed Towing Basin almost 3/5 OF A MILE LONG, 50 feet wide,
and 20 feet deep. This Laboratory Is concerned with speed, sta-
bility, control and seakeeping qualities of floating or submerged
naval designs, and with fundamental naval hydrodynamics.
O APPLIED MATHEMATICS LABORATORY facilities include the
latest, largest computer systems, and feature the LARC, the
IBM 7090, and a 1401. This is BuShips' primary computing fa-
cility, working on engineering, research logistics, and numerical
methods. Work carried on here involves mathematic simulation
of the life cycle of nuclear reactors; automatic calculation of
ship lines; and applications of computers to management prob-
lems,
® In this giant new Maneuvering and Seakeeping facility,
both fixed and free-running models may be tested under any
sea-state condition. You may also work with the High-Speed
Phenomena Division at Langley Field, Virginia.
®AERODYNAMICS LABORATORY facilities include several
wind tunnels-ranging from subsonic through hypersonic at
Mach 10-which are used to determine and improve static sta-
bility, control and heat transfer characteristics of helicopters,
VTOL's, supersonic aircraft, missiles, etc. Air flow studies also
involve bomb design, bridge structures, aircraft turbulence when
approaching carriers, and other government and private prob-
lems.
The unique STRUCTURAL MECHANICS LABORATORY facili-
ties at Carderock are the new pressure tanks which permit the
study, by means of large structural models, of the hull struc-
tures for deep diving submarines and deep sea research vehicles
to reach all ocean depths. Additional Structural Mechanics Labo-
ratory facilities are scattered throughout the 186 acres, and
include a tridimensional Static-Load Frame, a Pentagonal Test
Pond, Explosion Pits, and a 600,000-Pound Universal Testing
Machine. With these facilities, Laboratory scientists and engi-
neers' conduct studies aimed at improving the hull structure
and increasing the resistance of the Navy's ships to enemy at-
tack. This requires development of fundamental, theoretical ap-
proaches of load and response, and development of engineering
solutions based on the increased understanding. A substantial
portion of 'the ship protection research Is carried out at the
Underwater Explosions Research Division of this Laboratory lo-
cated at Portsmouth, Virginia.
O The ACOUSTICS AND VIBRATION LABORATORY was just
established to Intensify research and development of ships of
Improved detection capability, and reduced vibrations and under-
water sound output. Fundamental and applied research In hydro-
dynamics, structural acoustics, mechanical vibrations, and signal
processing are supplemented by conduct of acoustic and vibra-
tion trials, and development of acoustic and vibration instru-
mentation.
The OPERATIONS RESEARCH GROUP cannot be pinpointed
as easily because it ranges over all the RDT&E activities at The
Model Basin - hydromechanics, structural mechanics, aerody-
namics, and applied mathematics. Special applications today
are in the fields of naval architecture, ship silencing, ship pro-
tection, and weapons effects . . . setting realistic performance
goals- for ships and submarines in view of probable environ-
mental factors . . . handling special externally-generated pro-
jects that tie in with DTMB capabilities . . . and making recom-
mendations to the Technical Director as to improving research
methods and orientation.
To staff these five operating Laboratories, we are seek.
Ing college graduates with 8S, MS, or PhD degrees in
Aerospace, Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical or Struc-
tural Engineering; in Applied Mechanics, Mathematics,
Physics, and Naval Architecture.
