SOCCER
The graduate soccer club fell to Eastern Michigan last Saturday, 2-1. De-
spite its defeat, captain Art Andersen called the team's performance the
"best effort of the year."
Unlike their graduate counterparts, the undergrads cruised to victory
last Wednesday, defeating the University of Toledo, 2-1. The first Blue goal
was scored by Stefan Mitkov from Jan Broere. Dave Ritchie, assisted by
Bob Zack, put the contest on ice for the Wolverines with his game-winning
goal.
On Sunday, mistakes took their toll as the undergrads were beaten by
Oakland University. Michigan held a 1-0 lead at the midway point, with the
credit for its score going to Ritchie, assisted by Bruce Davidson. Then the
Blue squad helped Oakland in its scoring effort when an errant pass to the
goaltender slipped into the corner of the net.
Though Coach Steve Olsen called the goal "kind of demoralizing," he
,was pleased with his team's performance. "It was the kind of loss that really
didn't bother me because we played really well," said Olsen. "Oakland is
'probably the best soccer team in the state. We let them know they're not
"alone at the top."
RUGBY
Michigan senior Bill Chung led a strong 'A' squad in a 13-4 victory last
weekend over Michigan State, with nine points on three penalty goals. Tom
Aboyne added four points on a try, rugby's equivalent to a touchdown in
football.
"Thisgame was satisfying because we were coming off a two-game losing
streak," said captain Jack Goodman. "Hopefully this will get us on the right
track."
The rugby club travels to Battle Creek next weekend. "
ROWING
The Michigan rowing club entered three boats in the Head of the Thames
regatta held in London, Ontario last weekend. The field consisted of seven
university crews, eight rowing club, and two high school squads. Amongst
mostly Canadian teams, the Blue rowers fared relatively poorly.
The lightweight men's four turned in Michigan's best finish, fourth of
seven in a race won by the London Rowing Club.
The women's eight finished seventh of eight crews, while the men's eight
ended up last in a nine-boat race, ultimately claimed by the Detroit Boat
Club.
"One way to explain the results is the fact that that was the last race of
the season for the Canadian clubs, who have been rowing together since
spring," said rower Alex Johnson. "We're generally encouraged. The boats
we raced were really good, and the races were close."
Next Sunday, the rowing club will travel to Boston to participate in the
Head-of-the-Charles Regatta. Michigan has entered four boats in the Bean-'
town classic - the lightweight four, the "club" eight, the mixed eight, and
the womep's eight.,
SAILING
Last weekend. the Michigan sailing club. took top honors in Iowa's Davis
Cup Regatta, thereby upholding its ranking among the .top ten teams
nationally. Freshman Doug Wefer and Karl Neumann easily won the 'A'
division title, while'Harry Levinson and Hal Wittacre finished second in the
'B' division.
., A second Blue sailing squad travelled to, Toledo, where it dominated
eleven midwestern schools. John Fullerton and Joanne Kure took first place
in the.'A' division. Teammates Glen Walborn and Lydia Hatton claimned 'B'
division's second place.

WOMEN STUMBLE, MEN EXCEL
Hiarriers turn tables

By JOHN FITZPATRICK
Battling wet, windy, and cold con-
ditions, the men's cross-country team
gained a measure of revenge for their
third-place finish at the Notre Dame
Invitational last week, as they defeated
Michigan State, 20-35, and Minnesota,
18-42, in a triangular meet last Satur-
day at East Lansing.
The Wolverines dominated the first
five places of the 10 kilometer race,
with Dan Heikkinen in first (30:32),
Dave Lewis second (30:40), and Brian
Diemer fourth (30:51). Rounding out
the scoring runners for Michigan were
Danny Beck in sixth (31:20) and Gary
Parenteau in tenth (31:37).
MICHIGAN'S TOP five hung on well
despite- a torrid 4:45 first mile and
chilly, damp weather.
"MSU had a good group, said Coach
Ron Warhurst, "but they weren't bun-
ched up enough. Our performance here
was much better than at the Notre
Dame Invitational last week."
Warhurst also sees continued im-
provement for the harriers in upcoming
competition.
"Thursday was the first time we've
done any sharpening-up work. Once we
start, increasing our speed work, our
times should start to come down."
Michigan's defeat of the Spartans
bodes well for its Big 10 title chances, as
its main competition will now come
from Indiana and traditionally strong
Wisconsin team.

Bad weather and sub-par performan-
ces plagued the women's cross-country
team last Saturday, as they finished
third in the Western Michigan In-
vitational with 66 points, behind the 48
points of Central Michigan and the 54-
point total of Bowling Green.
Melanie Weaver led the way for the
Wolverines, finishing the 3.1 mile cour-
se at Kalamazoo in 18:44, good for
second place. The winner, Becky'Dob-
son of Bowling Green, finished a mere
two seconds ahead of Weaver, kicking
her way by the tiring harrier in the
closing stages of the race.
OTHER TOP finishers for Michigan
included Sue Frederick in ninth, Dawn
Woodruff (13th), Julie Clifford (18th),
and Sharon Wigglesworth (24th).
"I don't understand it," said
Michigan Coach Red Simmons. "We've
beaten Bowling Green and Central
before. We just had a bad day.
"We are improving each time we
compete, but so are the other teams.
We may havesbeen overconfident in
this meet after having defeated all the
other teams at the Bowling Green In-
vitational and in other meets."

There's a big difference. The MITRE Cor-
poration has two major locations, with 11 -
technical divisions and 63 departments. Our
1573 members of the technical staff provide
systems solutions to Federal, state, regional'
and local governmental agencies. There's plen-
ty of opportunity to grow m responsibility.
Many companies offer you a job which can
broaden your career. But when the challenge
is gone, most professionals seek a new com-
pany with a new job and a new challenge. At
MITRE we recognize this need for new chal-
lenges and new opportunities. With dozens
of sponsors and scores of projects in a wide
variety of technologies, we offer the oppor-
tunity to CHANCE JOBS WITHOUT
CHANGING COMPANIES. The direction
of your career at MITRE is up to you. We'll
help you stay on track through our staff
development programs. We offer 10O'7, tuition
prepayment and company paid professional
growth semninars.
At our facility in Bedford, Massachusetts
(just outside Boston), we're looking at all
kinds of command, control and communica-
tions problems as technical advisor to the Air
Force's Electronic Systems Division.
At our McLean, Virginia facility (just out-
side Washington, D).C.), we're not only work-
ing on defense arid military systems but also
on significent problems in air traffic control;
enerar reolrtt ;n t- tvr m e.--

information systems; information manage-
ment and communications systems; ground
transportation and more. Much more.
At either location, opportunities constantly
arise to challenge your intelligence, your
knowledge, your motivation. In search of
solutions, MITRE people use the tools of
systems engineering and analysis. If this type
of atmosphere intrigues you and if you have
a degree (or are about to receive one) in elec-
trica engineering, computer science, math,
physics, or economics, we'd like to know
more about you. See your Placement Office
to set up an on-campus interview, or send
your resume directly to:
