BIG TEN MEET PLEASES COACH:
Tankers finish second to Indiana
By MARK MIHANOVIC
It was Michigan's turn to play
bridesmaid to Indiana in the Big Ten
Swimming Championships last
weekend in Columbus, Ohio, but the
Hoosiers had to overcome five con-
ference records by sprinter Fernando
Canales to keep the Wolverines in the
Canales won the 500-yard freestyle
with a time of 4:24.32, the 200 free in
1:37.47, and the 100 free in 44.38 (all
records), and swam legs on the record-
setting 800- and 400-yard freestyle
relays. It wasn't enough, however, as
Indiana's depth carried it past
Michigan by a 705-507 margin. Ohio
State finished third with 442 points.
Coach Gus Stager was pleased with the
"EVERYBODY DID ahelluva job. I
didn't think we could get a first place
finish out of it. They (Indiana) just had
too many horses that don't show up in a
dual meet but show up in a champion-
ship. There wasn't much that we could
do about it. We would have needed an
awful lot of breaks to win. But we swam
Michigan had defeated the Hoosier
swimmers in a dual meet, 58-55, earlier
in the year at Matt Mann Pool, but they
remained the undergoes before the Big
Ten's, in which Indian was gunning for
its 19th straight titlte.
Standout Canales assessed the team's
performance. "The fact that this is
Coach Stager's last year made the
whole team want to do their best," he
explained. "Everybody had about their
best performances. There was some
disappointment, but we went into the
meet with a very realistic attitude. We
are a better dual meet team than
championship team, and just because
we beat Indiana in the dual meet didn't
mean we would win the Big Ten.
"THIS WAS THE first time in a num-
ber of years that the Big Ten meant
something to Indiana. Most of them were
shaved and tapered. Last year they
didn't care. They didn't even have their,
whole team there."
Diver Matt Chelich turned in another
outstanding performance for the;
Wolverines, winning both the one- and
three-meter events. Bob Murray also
grabbed first place honors, finishing
first in the 50-yard freestyle in 20.76.
Although Indiana continued their
dominance, the tide may be turning in
Big Ten swimming. The fact that the
Hoosier swimmers actually showed in-
terest in the conference meet is a good
omen for the Wolverines and the rest of
the Big Ten.
"OUR SWIMMING program is cat-
ching Indiana," said Stager."We need
another great year of recruiting."
Stager rejected the notion that his
team's good times resulted from their
desire to send their coach out on a win-
ning note. "I don't think they swam well
because it was my last year. They
swam well because they are a helluva

Tumblers take third in Big Tens
By LEE KATTERMAN
The closest Big Ten Gymnastics
meet in ten years ended in disappoin-
tment this weekend for the Ohio State
quad as the title they thought was theirs
went to Minnesota.
While the Buckeyes celebrated, a
recalculation of the team totals
revealed Minnesota would retain the
Big Ten Gymnastics Championship for
the fourth consecutive years.
The final tally put Minnesota on top
with a total of 429.00 w the Buckeyes'
428.90. The Michigan gymnasts finished
third with a score of 421.40.
The Minnesota victory was sparked
by junior all-arounder Kevin Prady.
Prady, competing in his first Big Ten
Championship, won the all-around
competition with his score of 108.15,
edging Michigan's Nigel Rothwell by
just over a point.
Ironically, Prady was a walk-on as a
freshman and missed most of his
sophomore year with an injury.
"When he first came out for the team,
I didn't think he'd make the team in the
all-around," said Minnesota coach
Fred Roethlisberger. "But Kevin has
worked so hard, and it paid off for the
team and for him."
Wolverine coach Newt Loken, in his
32nd year at Michigan, was pleased
with how his team performed during
the weekend meet.
"The team did a super job, especially
in the compulsories," said Loken. "I'm
happy we beat Illinois, since they had
beat us in a dual meet earlier this
In addition to Rothwell's fine showing
in the all-around, Wolverines Jim
Varilek (floor exercise), John
Rieckhoff, (side horse), Darrell Yee
(still rings), Gordon Higman (parallel
bars) and Bob Creek (horizontal bar)
all turned in outstanding performances.

It was a grim weekend for the
Michigan tracksters when they
traveled to Champaign for the Big Ten
indoor track championships held Mar-
ch 2 and 3. The Wolverines, expecting
second and shooting for first, finished a
surprising third place behind Indiana
and Ohio State.
"We just had a poor week," said
coach Jack -Harvey. "We figured In-
diana (the eventual champion) would
be tough to beat so we should have
finished second. But if we did really
well and they didn't, we thought we
could have gotten first, and that is what
we were hoping for.
"'WE DIDN'T expect OSU to run as
well as they did," Harvey said. "That
was really a surprise."
Indiana ran away with the meet,
scoring 137 points to the Buckeyes' total
of 77. Michigan came in a very close
third with 75 points. The rest of the or-
der was Michigan State, Wisconsin,
Illinois, Purdue, Minnesota, Iowa and
Tim Thomas led the Wolverine ef-
fort with Michigan's only first place
finished, the 880 yard run. Mike Lattany
(high jump), Jim Baumgartner (1000
yard run), Don Wheeler (60 yard high
hurdles), and the mile relay team of
Ken Gardner, Ronald Affoon, Ted Dob-
son and Charles Crouther all captured
second places for the Maize and Blue.
THE MILE RELAY team and Baum-
gartner both lost in photo finishes, a
fact which caused a lot of speculation
about the final team outcome. With a
10-8-6-4-2-1 point scoring system, if
Michigan had won either of those even-
ts they would have tied Ohio State and if
they had won both they would have
finished in second above the Buckeyes.
Wolverines James Henry and James
Ross captured 4-5 in the long jump
competition. Dan Heikkinen and Bill
Weidenbach repeated a Michigan 4-5
finish in the two mile run. Steve Elliot
took fifth in the mile and Gardner cap-
tured fourth in the 600 yard run.
Charles Crouther and Butch Woolfolk
placed in the fourth and fifth spots in
the 300 yard run for Michigan. Marshall
Parks and Shelly Johnson were 3-4 in
the 60 yard high hurdles behind
Wheeler's second place finish. Andrew
Bruce and Greg Thomas rounded out
the Michigan scorers with sixth place
finished in the 60 yard dash and 880 run
Indiana totally dominated the meet
from the team standpoint. "Indiana
was just superb," Harvey said. "They
scored in just about every event." The
Hoosiers did manage to place in 14 of
the 16 events including eight first place

If you're a junior or senior
majoring in sciences like
math, physics or engineering,
the Navy has a program you
should know about.
It's called the Nuclear
Propulsion Officer Candidate-
(NUPOC-C for short) and if
you qualify, you can earn as
much as $650 a month right
through your senior year.
Then after 16 weeks of
Officer Candidate School,
you'll get an additional year
of advanced technical
education. This would cost
thousands in a civilian school,
but in the Navy, we pay you.
It isn't easy. There are
fewer than 400 openings and
only one of every six
applicants will be selected.
But if you make it, you'll,
have unequaled hands-on
responsibility, a $24,000
salary in four years, and gilt-
edged qualifications for jobs
both in the Navy and out.
Ask your placement
officer to set up an interview
with a Navy representative
when he visits the campus,
or contact your Navy
representative at 800-841-8000,

only can it help you complete
college. It can be the start of
an exciting career.

People are fanatics when it comes to their Pilot Razor Point pens.
They're reluctant to give them up. And when someone borrows one,
what happens is inevitable.
First, they love the way it writes. Reallysmooth and extra-fine. They
go wild over its clever metal collar that helps keep the point from going
squish. Naturally they "forget" to give it back, although it's only 79.
This can be very embarrassing when they're caught in the act.
Others have pocketed Pilot's Fineliner pen. The one with the slightly
less delicate strnke. It's nniv 699
