Lions to invade
'M' Stadium
Michigan Stadium will be the scene of a National Foot-
ball League preseason game next year The Daily learned last
night. An agreement was concluded yesterday between Michi-
gan Athletic Director Donald B. Canham and the owner of
the Detroit Lions, William Clay Ford, to hold the exhibition.
The Detroit Lions will be the home team-for the contest
and will host the Baltimore Colts. No definite date for the
game has been announced as yet, but it will be scheduled
for the weekend of August 20-


Tournaments lie ahead

The contest, which will be the
Lion's third / exhibition g a-m e.
marks the second time that a
professional exhibition will have
been played in a University facil-
ity. Earlier this year the Detroit
Pistons and the New York Knicks
met in a National Basketball As-
sociation game in Crisler Arena.
Prior to this year the Big Ten
did not allow its members to host
professional sports, but at the con-
ference meeting last winter pre-
season games were approved.
Financial details have not been
completed yet, but it was learned!
the Michigan's share of the pro-
ceeds will exceed the usual ten
percent associated with such ar-
The anticipated revenues from
the game are described as lucritive

Tickets for the game will not
be included in either the Lion or
Wolverine season blocks, but spec-
ial priority will be given to Michi-
gan season ticket holders. Spec-
ial arrangements will also be made
for Michigan students. Top regu-
lar ticket price will be $6.
Former Wolverine football play-
ers Tom Curtis and Rick Volk are
now members of the Colts and
will be making their return to
Michigan Stadium. Accompanying
them will be perennial favorite

Punchdrunk from the blow of
losing its first three games of the
season to a trio of highly rated
cage squads, the outclassed Michi-
gan basketball team will get a
chance to pick up some sorely
needed momentum over the win-
ter break before opening the Big
Ten season once classes resume.
The Wolverines start their climb
off the canvass tomorrow night in
a game against cross-county rival
E a s t e r n Michigan. They then
tangle with the depleted Univer-
sity of Detroit Titans Saturday
afternoon. Both games will be
played in Crisler Arena.
Following. a short pause while
the members of the squad take
their finals, the team will play
host to the first Michigan Invi-
tational Basketball tournament.
s Wyoming, Harvard, and Califor-
nia will be coming in for the fes-
tivities, starting on December 21.
The rest of the Michigan holi-
day schedule is on the road, but
;aner no one, coaches and sportswriters
included, is complaining. In fact,
_ the team probably wishes it could
make the trip without bothering
to participate in the tournament
as there are other things to do
where they are going.
Incidently, the name of the
tourney the Wolverines are at-
tending from December 26-30 is
i the Rainbow Classis. And it's held
rst shut- in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Aside from the host University
of Hawaii and Michigan, other
lucky participants include Villa-
nova, Illinois, Brigham Young,
New York University, St. Louis
University, and Subpac, a service
Ii view of the nature of two of
the participants, the Wolverines
will have a chance to deal a
crushing blow to both militarism
and racism if they take the tour-
While the Wolverine's oppon-!
ents over the break won't be as
tough as the first three, they
aren't exactly in the same league
with the Cleveland C a v a l i e r s
Last year's Eastern Michigan
squad was the winningest team in
the school's basketball history, go-
ing 19-6 for the regular season
and then participating in the
NAIA tournament, finishing the
year at 22-7.
Nine lettermen return led by 6-8
Kennedy McIntosh, who averaged
20 points per game last season
and led the team in rebounding.
Other returning starters are Earl
Dixon and Lindell Reason.
The University of Detroit has
had problems this year. Coach Jim
Harding is not exactly popular
with his players and for a while
it looked like he would have to
jump center himself. The team's
problems, however, haven't ex-

tended to its play as the Titans
took their first two.
Things looked bleak for the
Cowboys out in Wyoming at the
end of last season, but three huge
junior college transfers arrived to
the rescue in a cloud of dust with
a hearty "stuff that ball."
With 6-10 Jerry Bucks, 6-7 Sam
Ballard, and 6-4 Franklin Irvin
joining the five returning letter-
men and two tall sophomores, 8-9
Rod Penner and 6-7 Mike Wells,
the Cowboys will have height if
nothing else.
Harvard went only 7-19 last
year, but with the addition of
sup er s o p h s James Brown and
Floyd Lewis, the Crimsons win-
ning itch should be soothed some-
what. Brown averaged 21 points
and 10 rebounds a game as a frosh
while Lewis also scored 21 while
snatching 14 rebounds in each
California is perhaps the weak-
est squad of the group, due to a
lack of height, but has four re-
turning regulars who averaged in
double figures last year. They will
be joined by sophomore John
Coughran, who at 6-6 220 will
have to do most of the board
work himself.
Michigan's opponent in the
opening round of the Rainbow
classic will be St. Louis University.
The Bills went only 7-19 last year
but will be improved.
