cynicism Drowned By
Good Humors of Spring
Excuse me if I'm a bit incoherent. I'm slightly intoxicated and
completely exhilerated after squooshing around Ann Arbor for three
hours savoring whisps of spring and drowning my cynicism in melted
Banana Good Humors.
I guess I'm just a gooey romantic because spring smacked
me in the puss this noon and left me with a six-year-old's smile
for the rest of the day. I merrily wandered around Ann Arbor
helloing people I'd never seen before and striking up conversa-
tions with adorable and talkative three-year-old girls on tri-
meandered about this very walkable town breathing deep. But
as the fun Joving sunlight reflected off my shades I got that irre-
pressible itch to run-to just gallop down the sidewalks-and because
it really was spring, damn it, I ran. Frightened a couple shrivled, cane
handling old ladies too, but then I smiled at them and they under-
stood, I hope.
My college belly cramped the running style and my black beret
popped off a couple times which forced me to return to a walk. My
sneakers wanted to run, but my calfs ached and my eyes sought to
observe .this day of days.
- Every motor scooter in Ann Arbor was burping down the avenues
and it seemed like each one had a girl attached to the back seat
clinging lovingly to the driver.
In fact every girl strolling about had a refreshing minty
smile. The cute ones were alluring, the girl next door group
seemed fetching, and even the ugly few looked passable in the
queer light of spring.
Students migrated out to balconies and porches which are never
used and actually started reading books in the soft temperatures.
Guys stomped out on their balconies barefoot and just stared at
people slithering around without bulky coats. And there wasn't an
obscenity to be heard.
Somebody was driving his bitty Fiat backwards around a parking
lot and nobody gave it a second glance. At least one out of every four
passer-bys were slurping ice cream. The Good Humor man was ex-
hausting his Toasted Almond and Chocolate Malt ice cream bars. His
waste basket was overflowing with sticky empty wrappers.
The jolly old fellow who said he goes "on an ice cream diet
once the season starts" had a paunch ("I get that from Schlitz
in the off season") that befit his occoupation. He seemed to be
getting as big a bang out of selling Chocolate Eclair and Rasp-
berry Peach Good Humors as his customers did munching them.
Down at the athletic fields Bump and the boys were sending the
team through the practice routine. The red, green, yellow, and blue
jerseys smybolizing status on the team were smudged with mud
symbolizing spring slop. The cadre of alumni football fanatics who
shoot the breeze each day to the pop of shoulder pads were giving
their post-mortems on Monday's Ann Arbor mayoral election. "I
read the girl's qualifications and she just didn't have it to be mayor,"
remarked one as he spied the helmeted football players.
4' Track coach Don Canham, tan despite the winter, was strolling
about in white shorts and Michigan jacket looking like he was ready
to challenge Kent Bernard in the 440. His trackmen were prancing
on a track that had the consistency of heavy oatmeal. Discuses were
thudding in the distance.
Coach Moby Benedict was pitching batting practice to his
eager swatters and there were more than a few 400 foot wallops
soaring over the outfielders. "I got it" echoed when a batter lifted
a pop up and the ribbing between pitches, that is so much a part
of any baseball practice, was happily present.
The team had moved its portable batting cage into the outfield.
The regular pitching mound is a soggy heap, and it would take a
canoe to go from second to third.
Over at the golf course, Bert Katzenmeyer and his amateur
Hogans were on the practice tee. There is still too much frost on the
course to allow anybody to play 18. But the greenskeeper was opti-
mistic that the snow would soon disappear from the sand traps and
the course would soften up enough to be opened by the 15th. Despite
what he said, the first tee was pulling at me mighty hard.
Across the street from the course, I noticed several ambitious
souls who also had the bug. They were sending lofty nine iron
shots toward some imaginary hole awaiting the day when they
would play their buddies for a buck a hole. All were taking
extravagant divots of loose earth. There was contentment as well
as concentration in their strokes.
I wandered around mammoth Michigan Stadium to find the one
open entrance. Fearsome barbed wire keeps intruders from entering.
Inside, the stadium looked like a gargantuan soup tureen. The field
seemed a great place for a picnic and a softball game. Ice under the
seats, the last residue of winter, was dripping into oblivion. The
patter of drops was the only telltale sound in the huge silent struc-
ture. Even the johns were locked. The liveliness of spring missed the
But outsde was a tiny girl peddling furiously on her tricycle.
I asked her how old she was to start a conversation because I didn't
exactly know how to begin talking to a three-year-old. She never
told me, at least I don't think she did.
In thousands of not so well chosen words she rambled about
a dog, her Sunday School teacher, her baby sister, a cat, a bad
man who didn't give her candy, her mother, a doll, and her
brother who was going to take her home. I couldn't really follow
her stream of consciousness narrative, but I listened anyway.
What the hell, it's spring.

CHICAGO (IP) - The Chicago
Black Hawks blew in three quick
first period goals and went on to;
defeat the Detroit Red Wings 5-2;
last night for their first victory
in the National Hockey League's+
Stanley Cup playoffs.
Despite the loss, the Red Wings
held a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7+
semifinal series with the fourth +
game scheduled tomorrow night,
also in Chicago. +
Following the Chicago flurry,
the game turned into a scoring
duel between Detroit's Ted Lind-
say and Chicago's Bobby Hull,
each whacking home two goals.
Fully aware it was win or for-
feit any serious chance of advanc-
ing to the finals, the Hawks came
out with a vengeful fury in the
first period.
For the next 30 minutes of play,
the Hawks sat back and watched
the gritty Red Wings whittle away
at the advantage with Lindsay, the
39-year-old veteran who came out
of retirement to help the Wings
win the NHL championship, doing
the scoring.
Lindsay, aided by Pit Martin
and Bruce MacGregor, made it
3-1 with a goal at the 11-minute
Wilt, 76ers
Top Celtics
Chamberlain, scoring 30 points
and grabbing 39 rebounds, com-
pletely overpowered Bill Russell
last night as the Philadelphia
76ers defeated the Boston Celtics
109-103 to even the National Bas-
ketball Association's Eastern final
playoff series at one game apiece.
Chamberlain also was credited
with seven assists and eight shots,
while Russell wound up with 12
points, 16 rebounds and four
blocked shots.
The 76ers, who lost the opening
game of the seven-game series
108-98 at Boston Sunday, grabbed
the lead early in the second quar-
ter on a 14-4 spurt . that gave
them a 42-33 margin.
The closest the defending NBA
champions could rally was to
within four points at 77-73 with
1:33 remaining in the third period.

mark. With the second period only
21/2 minutes old, Lindsay scored
again on a power play just as Eric
Nesterenko was leaving the pen-
alty box, after serving time for
offensive interference.
Chicago managed to keep Detroit
from further scoring in the sec-
ond period and took a 4-2 lead
on a Hull slap shot at 18:42.
Hull's score came a second after
Gordie Howe left the penalty box.
Howe tried his best to make
amends in the final minute of the
period, but his efforts were
thwarted by Matt Ravlich's fine
defensive work.
The Hawks put the game be-
yond reach at 6:49 of the final
period when Hull, taking a perfect
pass from Chico Maki, slammed
the puck past Crozier from a
couple of feet out.
Leafs Edge Habs
TORONTO (P) - Dave Keon's
unassisted goal gave Toronto a
3-2 overtime victory over Montreal
last night, pulling the Maple Leafs
back into contention in their Na-
tional Hockey League playoff ser-
ies against the Canadiens.
Montreal leads the best-of-7
games Stanley Cup semifinal ser-
ies 2-1. The Canadiens won the
first two games, both at Montreal.
The fourth game will be played
here tomorrow night.
Keon, whose seventh-game hat
trick knocked Montreal out of last
year's semifinal series and propel-
led the Leafs toward their third
straight Cup title, stole the puck
from defenseman Ted Harris and
fired his first goal of the current
series at 4:17 of sudden-death
Big Assists
The little Toronto center had
helped set up Andy Bathgate's
third-period goal, which sent the
game into overtime.
Bathgate scored five seconds
after Montreal defenseman J. C.
Tremblay was penalized for hold-
ing at 7:45. It was the Leafs' in-
itial power play goal in the series.
Henri Richard's unassisted goal,
in the first minute of the third
period, had given the Canadiens
a 2-1 edge. The hustling center
stole the rubber from Tim Horton
to the left of the Toronto cage
and beat goalie Johnny Bower
with his second effort.
