Today, the Michigan track team
opens its outdoor season in Seattle
with a dual meet against the Uni-
versity of Washington. Washington
has some fine performers on line
for today's action, but it probably
won't be enough to overcome a
balanced Michigan attack.
Washington has strength espe-
cially in the mile, pole vault, and
long jump. In the mile run, Jim
Johnson has gone 4:03.1 so far this
season, and he was NCAA. indoor
runnerup in that event to Marty
Liquori last weekend. Attempting
to upset Johnson will be Michigan's
Mike Pierce (4:08.9) and Rick
The pole vault presents a similar
situation to the mile run. Washing-
ton's Kirk Bryde has gone 16-4
this season, and Michigan's Bob
Mitchell and Larry Wolfe will be
hard-pressed to beat him. Mitchell
has gone 14-6 and Wolfe has clear-
ed 15-0 so far this season.
Michigan's strongest event ap-
pears to be the 120-yard high hur-
dles, where Godfrey Murray and
Mel Reeves are competing. Wash-
ington's top hurdler has gone :14.2,
while last season Murray nit- :13.7
and Reeves has a best of :14.0 over
high school highs.
In the 100- and 220-yard dashes,
Gene Brown is going against ques-
tionable Washington competition.
Washington has two good sprint-
ers, one who has supposedly gone
:09.3 and the other :09.6, com-
pared to Brown's :09.5. However,
their :09.3 sprinter has never been
seen by anybody running the 100
in that time, so their apparent
strength in this event is highly
questionable. In the 220, Brown
will be joined by Kim Rowe against
adequate competition from Wash-
In the other field events, John
Mann will find little competition
for first place. But Steve Adams
will have his hands full in the shot
put and discus. Washington's top
shotputter has thrown 57-8 while
Adams has thrown 56-0.
In thehdiscus, Adams has never
thrown competitively before in the
collegiate ranks, so only time will
tell how good he will be in that
event. Adams' coach, Jack Harvey,
a former shot putter himself, thinks
that Adams is much better in the
discus than in the shot. He is bas-
ing his decision on the fact that
Adams practiced only for the discus
during the entire fall track prac-
In the triple jump, Steve Rosen
takes his indoor best of 43-11
,against one good jumper from
Washington who is in the range of
48 feet. Rosen will be joined by
pole vaulters Mitchell and Wolfe
in an effort to acquire both second
and third places.
In the 440-yard dash, Lorenzo:
Montgomery and Reggie Bradford
will have their hands full with two
:48.0 Washington quarter-milers.
The 880 will not present such great
difficulties for Rick Storrey and
Bill Bolster who have no pressing
In the exclusively outdoor events,
Phil Pyatt will be attempting his
first three-mile run of the new sea-
son, after hitting a two-mile best
of 8:51.9. Greg Syphax and Reggie,
Johnson will be showing their
hurdle and endurance skilla as they
compete in the 440-yard interme-
The 440-yard relay team will also
be performing for the first time
this season, and will probably in-
clude Syphax, Mann, Murray, and

Let's hear it for the drunks.
It's not the drink that kills, it's the drunk, the problem drinker, the abusive
drinker, the drunk driver. This year he'll be involved in the killing
of at least 25,000 people. He'll be involved in at least 800,000 highway
crashes. After all the drunk driver has done for us, what can we do for
him? If he's sick, let's help him. But first we've got to get him off the road.
