Strinko named MVP
Steve Strinko, a 6-foot-3, 235-pound linebacker, was named
the most valuable player by his Michigan teammates yesterday.
Strinko, a senior from Middletown, Ohio, was given credit for
114 tackles, knocking down three passes and recovering two
fumbles for the Wolverines.
"He's one of the finest linebackers to play at Michigan in my
six years," Coach Bo Schembechler said.

Baseball's winter meetings in New Orleans yesterday pro-
duced several major trades involving top-name players.
The Atlanta Braves acquired controversial slugger Dick Allen
from the Chicago White Sox for $5000 and a player to be named
later. The deal hinges on whether Allen elects to end his retire-
ment and report to Atlanta.
The New York Mets sent relief ace Tug McGraw, and out-
fielders Don Hahn and Dave Schneck to the Philadelphia Phillies
in exchange for centerfielder Del Unser, reliefer Mac Scarce
and minor league catching prospect John Sterns.
Houston traded first baseman Lee May to the Baltimore
Orioles for first-baseman-outfielder Enos Cabell, and minor
leaguers Rob Andrews, a second baseman, and Jay Schlueter, an
Tumblers shine in o pener
In their first intercollegiate competition of the 74-75 season,
the Michigan gymnastics team gave a respectable showing in
Chicago's Midwest Open last weekend.
The injury-plagued Wolverines, with many of their top
gymnasts not competing in the meet, were still able to place
in high positions in many events. There were no team points
tabulated as it was entirely an individual competition. 160 athletes
competed in each event.
Michigan's strongest event was the trampoline, as Mason
Kauffman finished first and Mike Rowe took fifth. Junior Joe
Neuenswander placed third in the rings.
The Wolverines also showed well in the pommel horse event.
Junior Jerry Poynton and Senior Rupert Hansen finished second
and sixth, respectively. Freshman Harley Danner was the other
participant to place in the top ten, as he finished eighth in the
floor exercise.
Coach Newt Loken was satisfied with his team m his ap-
praisal of the meet. "It was a good meet," he said, "It provided
an added stimulus for the Windy City meet next week, where
we hope to do better."
The next competition for the Michigan gymnasts will be the
Windy City Invitational, again in Chicago, on December 7.

Tryouts for the 1974-75 edition of the Michigan Intercollegiate
Women's Basketball team will be held today, tomorrow and Fri-

Gifts for Christmas?...
...try the Athletic Office
John Kahler
HE SNOW is on the ground, and Muzak fills the air. Yes,
T it is Christmas time again, and with it, Christmas shopping.
And if you haven't yet indulged in this colorful American custom,
the people at 1000 South State have a suggestion as to where to
spend your Christmas dollars.
Yes, the people who gave you Bo Schembechler and Johnny
Orr are in the souvenir business. And it is certain that a person
who gets a gift from the M Club will never forget you for it.
Anyone with a purse-loving friend and $18.95 to spend
should consider a genuine Michigan football (or basketball)
purse. Constructed of genuine plastic, these purses have the
durability needed in these days of recession and high crime.
The Maize and Blue color scheme is guaranteed to clash
with any wardrobe, but it is doubtful that anyone who would
carry such a purse would care about such things anyway.
Or one could buy a Michigan lamp. The base is an Authentic-
size" Michigan football helmet.
But, at $34.50, it would be cheaper to rip off a helmet from
Bo's Palace and hire someone to do the electrical work.
The Michigan helmet, incidentaly, is also available as a
hanging lamp for five dollars less. Petty larceny is still cheaper.
For the kiddies, the M Club has commissioned a group of
adorable statuettes of a typical Wolverine football player,
Number 77. In real life, that number belongs to defensive
tackle Greg Morton.
Morton does exist, and Corny Greene has the bruises to
prove it. Greene, however, would not recognize his tormentor
from the statuette for sale here. It has been at least sixteent
years since Big Mo looked that cute..
Being made of ceramics, these dolls would last about twenty
minutes around the average child. If one does not like football,I
a hockey player is also available.1
For the literate, there is the Mein Kampf of Michigan football,1
Joe Falls' Bo Schembechler-Man in Motion. This is a perfect
gift for someone you don't really like.
All that one learns about Bo from this book is that he
coaches the Michigan football team, a fact that is general
knowledge. The book is mostly about Joe Falls writing about;
Bo Schembechler, and Bo gets buried by Falls' ego. Anyone
reading this book will come away with serious doubts as to
whether Bo could qualify as a human.
A much better value is The Wolverines by Will Perry, a good
background piece on Wolverine football.j
Bob Ufer freaks can listen to the inimitable "homer" re-
create the five greatest games in Michigan football history for
+5.95 for the record, $7.95 for eight-track or cassette. But frankly,
why bother.
And there is more. There are souvenirs of all shapes and
sizes, all with an imprint of either the Michigan helmet or the
Wolverine (known in East Lansing as "the rat"). Prices are as
low as one dollar for the famous M GO BLUE bumper sticker.
And while one is in the holiday mood, why not give a gift
to everybody's favorite athletic director? Give Don Canham one
thousand dollars and he will give you a membership in the
Victors Club.
To quote a circular recently sent out to Ann Arbor alums,
the Victors Club is "An organization of distinguished alumni
and friends who maintain a vital partnership between them-
selves and the student athlete. Contributions finance the 70
grant-in-aid scholarships Michigan issues each year.j
"The membership is established with a yearly donation of
$1,000 and a lifetime membership with a $10,000 gift. Members
are constantly informed of athletics, invited to special briefings
by coaches and kept close to the Michigan athletic scene."
To put it more crudely, you can buy Don Canham a football
player, a welcome Christmas gift anytime. But if you can't
spend $1,000, a hundred bucks will get you into the Maize & Blue
club, and lesser amounts into the Varsity "M" Club.
Rumor has it that Santa Claus himself graduated from the
School of Business Administration in 1897. You can carry on that
tradition by buying Blue this Christmas.
