The Train has pulled out of
town. Lionel "Main Train" Wor-
rell, one of the more popular
players ever to set foot in Cris-
ler arena, is transferring to
Oral Roberts University in Tul-
sa, Oklahoma.
Wearing the blue beret that
has become his trademark,
Main Train paid one last visit
to Ann Arbor yesterday to ob-
tain his release and pick up his
transcripts. It is unlikely that
he will miss Ann Arbor v e r y
"I just didn't like it here,"
Worrell said as he waited for
his transcripts to be handed
over to him. "The sit cation

Arbor is a difficult town to
adjust to, particularly if you
are from New York."

NEW YORK - Otto Velez,

Main Train was the sixth
man on last year's Big Ten Co-
championship team. As the
third guard, he would have been
playing behind Joe Johnson, a
sophomore, in the Wolverine
senior, and Steve Grote, a
sophomore, in the Wolverine
backcourt this year.
But his popularity with the
Michigan fans was all out of

"Lionel felt he had a better op-

According to NCAA rules, a!
student-athlete who transfers to
another school must sit out a
year before being eligible to
play. The year he sits out, he
can not receive any financialI
aid from the school to which he'
transfers. After that year, he
may be put on scholarshio, and
he maintains whatever eligibil-
ity he had left before p , trans-
Orr is distressed by the in-
creasing frequency of trans-
fers in basketball. "This is
one of the bad effects of the
freshman eligibility rul. A
kid plays his freshman year,
ton, 14-9, to a quick lead over
the second-place Reds. When

gets disenchanted, and wants
out. Under the old system, he
would play on the freshman
team, play his sophomore
year, and would be less like-
ly to transfer because he
would have only two years of
eligibility left."
"I would like to see the Big
Ten rule on transfers between
conference teams adopted all
over. In the Big Ten, trans-
fers have to sit out two years."
With Worrell's departure, Orr
is now batting .500 in the trans-
fer department. Edgar Burch,
who as a freshman started at
guard for Duke, is sitting out
this year in Ann Arbor.
Main Train was the sum total
of Michigan's experienced guard
reserves. Lloyd Schinnerer, a
junior, and freshman Dave
Baxter are being counted on to
man the backup positions.
The Michigan basketball team,
and the town of Ann Arbor,
will just have to make do with-
out Main Train. As one of his
teammates said, "If he didn't
want to play here, it was just
as well that he left. B3t I wish
him well."

King in Forest Hill finals
FOREST HILLS, N.Y.-Billie Jean King moved just a step
away from her fourth U. S. ' ladies title as she lethargically
dispatched Julie Heldman of 'Houston 2-6, 6-3, 6-1. Heldman
was unseeded at the Forest Hills classic.
Meanwhile Chris Evert got a reprieve from likely defeat as
rain forced postponement of her match with Australia's Yvonne
Goolagong as Goolagong was leading 6-0, 4-3. That semifinal
match will be completed today.
The men's semifinals scheduled for this afternoon will pit Ken
Rosewall against John Newcombe and Jimmy Connors against
Roscoe Tanner.
Frosh harriers impress
The Michigan cross country team will have a lot of new
faces this year. New coach Ron Worhurst held time trials
recently and three of the top five and eight of the first eleven
finishers were freshmen.
Letterman Jon Cross had the best time over the new four-
mile course, finishing in 20 min. 24 sec. Jay Anstette last year's
Ohio State high school champ finished only seven seconds behind
Cross. Mike Mcguire, a freshman from Farmington was third
followed by Greg Meyer and Billy Donakowski.
Senior Keith Brown did not run because of an injury but
should be ready for the first meet, which is a week from
Saturday at Eastern Michigan.
Worhurst feels the Wolverine harriers will be very com-
petitive and will "surprise a lot of teams."


Still, the big alums didn't quite know what was going on
when Ufer proclaimed, "There's a guy out here who would
like to try out for the team as a walk-on running back." The
puzzlement continued until Ufer added, "This kid has even
got his number all picked out-98. Here he is, Tom Har-
mon!! !"
Although Harmon is no longer Michigan's most famous foot-
ball player, since an offensive lineman on the 1-7 aggregation of
1934 moved into the White House, oh' Number 98 was accorded
quite a welcome by the boosters.
While the alumni smiled like only alumni and mothers at
bar mitvahs can smile, Harmon unearthed some nostalgia. "I've
been to every football stadium in the world, but none can com-
pare to Michigan Stadium. It really brings back memories when
I ride around Ann Arbor."
Harmon, who is perhaps best known to the younger gen-
eration as'the guy who keeps in shape by eating "Special K,"
is the only Michigan player to win the Heisman Trophy, way
back in 1940. He was in town as the radio voice of the WFL
California Sun, who played the tottering Detroit Wheels at
Ypsilanti last night.
Harmon didn't exactly help the big league image of the
Wheels when he said, "Yeah, I remember Ypsilanti. I used to
drive through it on the way to Ann Arbor."
Prior to Harmon's impromptu entrance, Schembechler had
been the center of attention as he spoke of Michigan's chances on
the gridiron this fall.
Following his 1974 pattern of pumning up his star players
a lot more than in the- past, Bo told the boosters,
"When you come to Michigan Stadium, you will see the
four best players in the country at their positions in Dennis
Franklin (QB), Gil Chapman (WB), Steve Strinko (LB),
and Dave Brown (safety).
"We're going to be a lot better football team than you read
about in the magazines," emphasized Bo.
"The thing I like about college coaching," Bo added. "is that
every year your team is different-it has a different personality
and different strengths and weaknesses.
"We're not that strong in the line right now, but I've felt I
didn't have a line before and we had one. On a team with a
winning tradition like Michigan, you can call on a second or
third stringer, and he'll play like a first stringer," Schein-
bechler said.
Thus reassured, the alums left smiling.

Aikido is a Japanese art of self-defense that is based on non-
resistance rather than strength. An attack is never stopped;
it is met and guided in a way that causes the attacker to be
thrown by the force of his own attack.
