OPENING SUCCESS:
Thinclads hurry through debut

USC

favored

By SANDI GENIS
The coming-out was a huge suc-
cess. Amid the green hills of Ypsi-
lanti Country Club, the Wolverine
cross country team made its var-
sity debut Saturday morning with
such distinction that Michigan
mentor Dixon Farmer had cause to
be proud of his distance men.
Displaying the exuberance and
winning spirit characteristic of
Farmer himself, the thinclads
demonstrated fine talent as they
placed four runners in the top
twenty finishers against fine com-
petition from perennial NAIA
champ Eastern Michigan, Alle-
gheny and Findlay Colleges, and
Marshall University.
Running on the Huron's home
course, the young team was paced
by outstanding performances from
a number of new faces on the
Michigan running scene, backed by
a strong showing from several of
the upperclassmen.,
Leading the Wolverine con-
tingent, Freshman George Khouri
turned in a strong performance
for the second time in two weeks,
finishing first among his team-
mates with a fine time of 26:10
over the five mile course for the
seventh slot. A week earlier,
Khouri crossed the finish line

ahead of all his teammates in an
intrasquad time trial.
Finishing only three places be-
hind Khouri with a time of 26:14,
sophomore veteran Mike Pierce
ran a tough race. A former state
class A champ and freshman re-
cord holder in the mile, Pierce,
who cold play a big role in the
team's premier season looked im-
pressive as he finished for the sec-
ond straight week on Khouri's
heels. He placed just behind the
freshman in the time trials.
Another of coach Farmer's super
freshman also showed signs of
greatness, as Keith Brown finished
in the thirteenth slot against the
tough competition. Brown, pre-
viously bothered by illness and in-
juries, displayed fine form and
stamina as he posted a 26:20 five
miles despite a rather slow last
mile, to earn Wolverine of the
week honors.
Among the veterans, three run-
ners rounded out the Michigan
placers in the top twenty - five.
Junior Eric Chapman, one of the
stalwarts during the past two track
seasons in the middle distances,I
crossed the line twentieth with a
time of 26.43, while sophomore
standout Dave Eddy finished
three places behind him. Owen

McBride, a senior, finished in the
twenty-fifth slot.
The meet winner, was, as ex-
pected, two-time NCAA college
division champ Gorden Minty, one
of the premier distance men in the
world. Minty, one of three Eastern
runners who placed among the top
finishers, seemed to have an easy
time on his home course, posting a
time of 25:46 to outdistance three
Allegeny challengers.
The Allegeny team, paced by the
two-four-five finish of Tim Mc-
Mullen, Ken Brannon, and Dave
Lawton, displayed awesome team
power, placing eight runners in the1
top twenty.
Optimism, following their first
varsity meet, ran rampant amongj
the team members. Recently elect-
ad team captain, McBride, seemed
4uite pleased with the morning's
results.
"The top men ran well," Mc-
Bride observed, "but we have to

-"Football players are at Stan-
ford to play football. If they get
an education in the time that's
left over, fine. If not, well, they
had the chance, didn't they?"
-"One of the coach's m a j o r
concerns was hair. He hated it. ..
When one of the football players,
Steve Jubb, hurt his ankle play-
ing rugby in the off-season, t h e
football trainer refused to treat
him because he'd let his hair grow
too long, so he had to drag his
trobbing ankle to the barber be-
fore he could get it taped by the
trainer."
-Ralston "hired a troop of pro-
fessional incentive builders to
psych us up for the season open-
er" against Arkansas.
-The athletic department
agreed to the players' demands
for "a stop in Las Vegas on the
way back from Arkansas."
-Ralston "threatened to re-
sign" when the players demanded
an end to two-a-day practices be-
fore the Rose Bowl.
"The pressure to win," writes
McClure of the Rose Bowl inter-
mission, "is so great that some of

the players, without the coach's
knowledge, are removing little
green \capsules from their lockers
and popping them into their
mouths ...
"At Stanford, we called it 'bean-
ing up', taking amphetamines to
get the heart. pumping faster and
the body functioning at an ac-
celerated pace. Most players
swallow speed out of self-defense,
since the odds are their opponents
are also taking the drug."
At Stanford, Chuck Taylor, the
school's director of athletics, is-
sued the following statement:
"The article appears to be noth-
ing more than one athlete's opin-
ion, and his reaction to his ath-
letic experiences. I regret that he
has these feelings, especially so
since he always seemed to be an
enthusiastic competitor and one
who was supportive of Stanford's
athletic program.
"There is no documentation for
some of his statements and he is
factually in error on a number of
points. He has every right to ex-
press his opinions, but it should
be remembered that they are
Ierely that . . . just opinions.
