Russell who relinquished his
final year of eligibility by de-
fecting to the Cleveland Cava-
liers of the NBA.
AFTER THREE weeks of
laborious drills, conditioning and
scrimmage, Orr has asserted
that if the Wolverines were to
start the season tomorrow, 6'7"
_ freshman Burrell McGhee, from
Warren, Ohio, would get the nod

us on the fast break."
While McGhee presently seems
to have the upper hand, there
are three other capable can-
didates who are only a step
behind him.. Johnny Robinson,
a 6'6" forward from Chicago
who was academically ineligible
last season, . is considered by
Orr to possess "the greatest,
all-around ability." '
Freshman Joel Thompson, a
6'7" shooting whiz from Flint
who possesses great leaping
ability, Ricky White, a 6'5" 210
pound sophomore who has given
up football to concentrate his
talents on the hardwood and
6'7" frosh Lenny Lillard from
Ann Arbor, round out the com-
petition at forward.
ORR HAS mentioned, how-
ever, that White may see some
playing time at center with
starting pivot man C. J. Kupec
moving to a forward spot. This
lineup would provide the Wol-
verines with a capable and
proven outside shooter in Ku-
pec as well as added rebounding
muscle in the bullish White.
"C.J. did it last year with
Campy moving to center, but
he'll probably do it more this
year," Orr remarked.
FOR A FRESHMAN to step in
and try to fill the shoes of Rus-
sell, a superlative scorer and

r£'bounder as well as passer, is
io mean task. As a matter of
fact, not many veteran round-:
ball players could boast that
ability.
"For a freshman it's a dif-
ficult job to go in there and
play well and sometimes people
forget that," Orr asserts.
ORR'S DILEMMA in trying
to fill the number' one forward
spot has been complicated by
the fact that no one has been
consistantly outstanding. Orr of-

fered an explanation of this
erratic play.
"Whe? they have to play
auainst four guys who are
am-io'ig the best in the country,
they get discouraged," he
claims.
Although McGhee has been
practicing with returning start-
ers Steve Grote, Joe Johnson,
Wayman Britt and Kupec, Orr
said that it would be premature
to make a definite or absolute
decision.

DEAR AKADAMA MAMA,
RECIPES FOR ADEEPTHIST.

Dear Akadama Mama,
I was caught inyour can't-hurt-me-and-
sorry-if-you-scred-me mouse trap. And
you'll be pleased to know I wasn't hurt or
anymore scared than someone being
trapped in an elevator overnight. Barbara
Joy, the lady who caught me and a
mouse's best friend, has been making
me the drinks on the recipe card you sent
along. They sure are good and I like them

but getting along in a people world gives
me a deep thirst so please send me a
whole bunch more.

Dear Rov,
Sorry for the delay. But Vern, my friend and
goldfish, got his tank water all over your
return address. So the only way to send you
more recipes was through this ad.

V-Rs face Toledo eleven
By RICH LERNER
The Michigan varsity-reserve football team will attempt to
complete an undefeated season when it battles the Toledo Rockets
in Michigan Stadium, this afternoon. The Baby Blue beat Notre
Dame twice and defeated Bowling Green in a battle of fumbles
earlier in the season.
Toledo has been' on the losing end of two games, both
close, and has posted no wins. They were bested by Western
Michigan, 15-13, and nipped by Bowling Green, 7-0. Against
Western, the Rockets dominated the game, but the Broncos
scored on a kick-off return and a fumble recovery to win.
A year ago, the Toledo eleven topped the Michigan JayVees
13-6, holding the Wolverines scoreless until Jerry Zuver 'raced
64 yards for atouchdown with only 28 seconds tocplay.
"Our kids will be ready," said Michigan coach Dennis
Brown, "especially after what happened last year.
Both teams have strong defenses and will use a basic
"Oklahoma" alignment. That consists of a five-man front, two
linebackers and a roverback (wolfman in Michigan terminology).
The tenacious Toledo defenders held Western 'Michigan to
minus one yards rushing and only 72 yards in the air. However,
they will face a powerful Michigan 2round game, headed by
freshman tailbacks, Joe Holland and Dennis Richardson.
Highly touted freshman Roer Bettis, an Ohioan, will
quarterback the Baby Blue. Ironiclly, the starting Toledo
quarterback is a Michigan native, John Caoonigro..
Bascomb is undecided on who will pla tailback in the
Rockets' I formation. He has tabbed Dave Wriht to play fullback.
"We'll throw the ball." insists Bascomb. "We've got a
couple of good receivers. We'll sprint ont and drop-back pass,"
he added, "but we'll also have to establish our running game."
Brown insists the game will be decided by turnovers. "We
had none in our first two games, but we had five against Bowling
Green, and at this level, turnovers is the name of the game."
Polomen defend championship
By RICHARD FLAHERTY
The Michigan waterolo team travels to Chicago today to
compete in the Midwest Tolurnamet at George Williams. Current-
ly undefeated, Michigan is heavily favored to retain the cham-
pionship title they won last year.
The team is scheduled to play Chicago Circle and George
Williams in back to back games today and the tougher Indiana
and Loyola teams tomorrow.
Coach Stu Isaac seems very confident upon entering the
playoffs. "It'll be rough playing the best teams on the same
day. But, hopefully we'll come out with an indication of how
good we actually are."
Isaac has nothing but praise for goalie Jim Firestone, who
is considered the best in the league, but adds that everyone has
performed outstandingly during the season.
"So far, our players have really worked as a team. Every-
body has the ability to score. If a player has a bad day, he has
teammates who can make up the difference."
Rich Yawitz,'Joe Bauer and Whit Davis have been high
scorers this year, while team captain Pat Bauer has provided
exceptional leadership.
Gordie Downie, by far the Wolverine's most improved player,
and freshman John Daly add needed speed to the team.
