Texas Rangers yesterday to the
Cleveland Indians for relief pitcher Jim
Kern and utility infielder Larvell

with 31 home runs this season. He stole

for outfielder Claudell Washington and
was signed by majority owner Brad
Corbett to a five-year contract for some

Band ta
The student sections at Michigan
Stadium can't cheer worth fight. They
always yell the wrong word: no fight.
Late in the third quarter of every
game a small, elite portion of the band
makes its way to the student sections
of the crowd. Here they play a little
ditty and after the final note they ex-

The students don't do that.

or Fight Band, or you-know-what
Band as they are also known, has been
circling Michigan Stadium for the last
30 years.

students and others alike responded to
their music with the cry Cavender
most appreciates: "fight!" But in the
late sixties the students got tired of
that fight and spat back with a cry one
letter shorter.
Having this student-altered cry of
"fight" yelled at you is "one of life's
thrilling experiences," says Fanfare
Group alto horn player Karl Drehobl.
"It does say fight on our music," he
At one point last year the
cheerleaders held up a sign that said
"FIGHT," but that's not what the
students yelled.
But the band members don t mind.
In fact, they rather enjoy the games
they play with the students.
AT TIMES they will play a few
notes and walk away. Or perhaps
they will stay at one section a long
time. "We do it (play a lot here, a lit-
tle there) just to have a little fun,"
explains Fanfare Group conductor
George Kendall, "we do it to keep
them off guard."
Kendall notes that the group
prepares about three times as many
numbers as they perform. "It's a
spontaneous decision as to what we
play," he says, "if somebody in the
crowd yells something, we'll play it."
The best of the marching band's
brass section composes the Fanfare
Group. The top 10 trumpet players (of
the band's 55), the top six (of 35)

baritones (or 17) and one alto horn or

"After playing in a group of 2%0,"
says Drehobl, "you get an extra sense
of satisfaction playing in a small, elite
group that works hard."
"EVERY MEMBER loves to play,"
echoes Kendall, "especially in this
smaller group. You relate more to
the audience. You focus on smaller
sections, not just the masses."
Despite the rain last Saturday, the
Fanfare Group, who compose and
arrange everything they play them-
selves, made its tour of the stadium to
try to inject a little more fun into the
"That's why the band's there," says
Kendall, "to, entertain. We try to
avoid playing while the team is. We
fill up the pauses between plays. And
of course, we assist the fans in
WHAT ABOUT the other sections of
the stadium? What do they yell? "I
hear both," says Drehobl. "A lot yell
fight, but then again . . But they
really applaud us too. They like us to
come around and break up the hum-
Kendall, who conducts Fight Band
practice three times a week after
regular band rehearsal, hears it this
way from non-student sections: "It's
a mixed reaction. They respond to the
music, but not rah-rah.
"We like to play for the students
most though,' Kendall continues,
"because they're most responsive and
appreciative." And of course, full of

Ex-Gopher alleges cash payment

nesota -Daily says that a former
Gophers' football player claims he
received monthly cash payments from
an assistant football coach to make
payments on his car in 1973.
The copyrighted story by Karl Vick
did not name the coach but quoted the
player,. O'Doll Williams Jr., as saying
the coach no longer is at Minnesota.
Gophers' head Coach Cal Stoll said,
"I remember O'Doll. He was with us a
few years back. I have no knowledge of
what he's talking about, none what-
Williams, a former flanker back, now

is manager of a fast food restaurant at
Daytona, Fla, He left school after
spring practice in his freshman year
because of unhappiness over not
playing enough.
THE DAILY quoted him as. saying he
received $160 to $175 monthly in an en-
velope from the assistant coach to
make payments on a new car, and the
money was part of a prior agreement to
attend Minnesota.
Asked if he thought Stoll knew of the
payments, Williams said, "He may.
have known about them, but I can't
swear on that. I felt Stoll knew, but I
don't know that he knew."

Williams declined to identify the
assistant coach.
Earlier this summer, the Daily had

made similar charges of payments by
coaches to players, all of which were
denied by Stoll.
