Archibald, in scoring half the
Royals points, scored one less than

against the Royals earlier this
month, the highest total in the
NBA this season.
Considered a small man at 6-

iced the win for Team 6.
The 5'9 league was organized to
give the players who have been
cheated in height but not talent a
chance to do their stuff without'
interference from the big goons
who camp under the basket.
Twelve teams in all entered
competition and the quality of
play, especially in the top four
teams, was very good. Ball-hawk-;
ing and stingy defense were the
bywords for most teams and the

"They may be short," comment-
ed Robert Dean, coach of the vic-
torious Lilliputians, "but I'd put
my team up against the best 'B'
team in the intramural leagues
and I'd bet the farm on 'em."
There were trophies on hand for
the winners at the conclusion of
the championship contest and it
was obvious that they meant a lot
to the ecstatic Lilliputians.
Coach Dean took the victory in
stride. "I knew we had the po-
tential to win it," he said. "It was
just a matter of playing together.
I've got 10 ballplayers and they're
all great. Usually my first five
will start the game and get us a
moderate lead, then I'll bring in
the second five and they'll blow
'em right off the court."

Another "spring"-training sea-
son is underway for baseball clubs
all over America. Floridian visions
of palm trees; sandy beaches, sun-
shiny 80 degree w e a t h e r, and
scantily-clad beauties pop into
mind at the thought of preparing
for a year of work and play at our
national pastime.
However, for the Michigan base-
ball team there are none of these
pleasures. Coach Moby Benedict's

mark. Their 10-5 Big Ten finish
was good for a percentage-point
deadlock with Minnesota for sec-
ond place behind the Spartans of
Michigan State.
But commencement has gobbled
up several key Wolverines. Sixty
percent of the Michigan mound-
men are gone, including ace Jim
Burton and fireballing Dan Fife,
both now playing for the big kids.
The left side of the infield, rep-
resented by Mark Carrow and
Mike Rafferty at third and short
respectively, and flychaser Mike
Bowen have also graduated to
greener pastures. Nevertheless, a
solid nucleus of returning letter-
men are ready to pitch, catch, hit
and run Michigan into champion-i
ship competition.
The leadership of the pitching
staff has been inherited by cap-
able juniors Pete Helt and Mickey
Elwood. Helt is coming off an ef-
fective 6-3 season in which he
appeared in thirteen of his club's
thirty-six games, fanned 78 bat-
ters in 76.2 innings, and compiled
an impressive 1.64 E.R.A.

stats of 12 outings, 56 strikeouts

This littlesis k
co ldincrease your
typig eed
by two or three days.
Students will be elated over a completely new
way to correct typing errors: Liquid Papers new
dispenser, slipstick.
When you're typing the big one, the 30-page
paper you've been sweating for weeks, that's when
mistakes bug you the most. So you slow down.
And the closer you get to the bottom of the page,
the more you clutch up. Mess up now and you've
got a whole page to retype..
When you've got a slipstick handy, you don't
worry about mistakes. One easy touch releases a
special fluid that buries the mistake and leaves a
clean new surface like the paper itself.
So you type relaxed. And make fewer mistakes.
On the big assignments, Liquid Paper's new slip-
stick could put you days ahead.
