THE MICHIGAN DAILY
One point proved to be the margin of victory in this week's Grid
Picks contest as Tom Le Mieux, '62, of 5312 Scott House, South Quad-
rangle, won two free tickets to the Michigan Theatre's "Pillow Talk."
His closest competitor, with an identical 17-3 record, was-Bruce
D. Larson of 812 Spring St., who was seven points off on the score
of the Michigan-Minnesota game, losing by that one elusive point.
Today, however, kicks off another contest for the free passes,
and with Homecoming Saturday all you readers should get in the
spirit of the football season and send in this article or a facsimile

SPORTSWRITING is a fascinating pastime (only those with many
years in the profession will call it work.)
There are always coaches and administrators who greet scribes
with the athletic version of the Fifth Amendment: "No comment."
Last-second decisions are jolly fun, says Percy Pressbox, as he
gently rips up the first two pages of his story written during a dull
And then there's nothing like a not very "reliable source" to
start a writer thinking of less conspicuous ways to look like a fool.
Now comes the clincher: A fancy letter from Ooms, Welsh and
Bradway, Chicago attorneys at law, informing us that we've been
writing about an athletic event that doesn't exist. Proving once again
that nothing, absolutely nothing, is impossible.
To all enthusiastic gymnastic fans, we sincerely regret to make
the following announcement. You probably will greet it with the same
disbelief that you had when someone once"spread the nasty rumor
that there was no Santa Claus.
But the truth is out: There is no such event as the trampoline,
claims George P. Nissen of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, manufacturer of
"Trampoline," say Ooms, Welsh and Bradway, is the registered
trademarks of the Nissen Trampoline Company.
In exquisite legal terminology we're informed that ".. . the trade-
mark 'Trampoline' has been used improperly either as a generic term
in sports articles or in connection with the advertising of rebound
tumbling equipment of other manufacturers."
JL'HUS, sportswriters are faced with the decision of the year: Will
they refer to the event using stretched canvas sheets as rebound
tumbling (shudder) or give the Nisson company free publicity every
time "Trampoline" (capitol T) is used?
Newt Loken, Michigan's gymnastics coach, will do neither, law
suits or not.
"I'm not about to change," he says. "Can you just imagine Ronnie
Munn on his way to the gym, telling his friends, I'm going down to
rebound tumble.' Ridiculous !
"I'm going to refer to the event as trampolining in my new book,
and that's that," Loken asserts.
Loken understands Nissen's problem well, for he, too, got the
same fancy memo.
"Nissen's trying hard to protect his copyright because a, couple
of his competitors are using the same trademark. But the minute
they put in rebound tumbling as an event, one guy is going to object
Anyway, a "Trampoline" by any other name would bounce as well.
