"If we can just put two first
halves together, we'll have a

men Borders, After playing "a
helluva first half", the wom-
en's basketball team dropped a
54-36 decision to arch-rival
Michigan State last night at
Crisler Arena.
Michigan jumped out to an
early lead, and outplayed the
taller Spartans, heavy favor-

After suffering a tough defeat
at the hands of the LSU Tigers
last weekend, Michigan's gym-
nasts head to Minnesota Satur-
day to face what could be their
toughest Big Ten opponent in
dual meet competition.
Last week's loss, the first
dual meet loss for Michigan
since 1973, was to the number-
one ranked team in the nation.
"We were simply beaten by a
superior team," Coach Newt;
Loken said. "It was a real
privilege for us to have com-
peted against the No. 1 ranked
team in the country."
MICHIGAN matched the Ti-
gers in every event except the

verines heavily.

Sports frat tests skill


Engraved on a plaque which hangs in the IM
building, are the names of 160 of Michigan's
best athletes sin-ce 1928.
Few of those names, however, would ring
even the faintest bell in the memory of the
Wolverine's most devoted trivia collector.
They are the members of the Michigan
chapter of the national honorary athletic
fraternity, Sigma Delta Psi; an organization
which has admitted only seven members
here since 1970.
The stated purpose of the all male fraternity
is "to promote the total fitness of college stu-
dents with emphasis on physical fitness." Mem-
bership is attained by passing fourteen physical
tests and attending at least two-year college or
According to Sigma Delta Psi's Secretary
Treasurer, Ben McGuire, "A man with a tra-
ditional background or a great deal of agility,
like a gymnast, will fare well in the tests."
Among the requirements are that an ap-
plicant must run the 100-yd dash in 11.6, put
a 16-pound shot 30 feet, run the mile in six
minutes, swim 100 yards in 1:45, punt a
football 120 feet and throw a baseball 250
Any one req'liremnent, except swimming, may
be substituted for by a varsity letter or an
intramural championship.
Sigma Delta Psi ws founded in 1912 at In-

200 chapters across the country.

he didn't astound us till the Big Ten Championships; then he was
really outstanding," commented Coach Gus Stager.
"I think he's developed since he's been in college. When
he first came here he hadn't matured yet as an athlete,"
added Stager.
Downie's main weakness, according 'to Stager, is that "he has
a tendency to either swim a very intelligent race or a dumb one.
"He's a terrific swimmer, though," continued Stager, "he has all
the potential."
"Obviously, he's an international swimmer," Stager con-
tinued, "if he ever really got serious, he could win internation-
The Wolverines entertain Southern Illinois Saturday in Matt
Mann pool at 4:00 p.m. The Salukis will pin their hopes on two
excellent and versatile swimmers, Dave Swenson and Jorge
Delgado. Freestyler Delgado has already posted outstanding times
in the 500 and 1000 yard events this season.

Ohio State has taken the national team
competition for the last two years, which
means that they inducted ten men whose
total records bettered those of any other
chapter with ten new members.
The only other competition that Sigma Delta}
Psi sponsors isthe national membership con-
test, won by the school with the most inductees.
West Point has won the title two years run-
ning with 42 total inductions.I
Since 1968 the number of men inducted an-
nually has been decresing, but Sigma Delta Psi
does not plan to lower its standards.
"We do not plan to loosen the requirements
for membership," states McGuire, adding that,
"the athletes of today are in better shape than
those of 1912.
"We do think that ABC's superstar com-
petition will lead to a resurgence in our
fraternity as college students will begin to
associate with the all-around super athlete.
"However, with school systems across the
country having economic problems, physical
education programs are the first to be cut
back and this will make a difference in Sigma
Delta Psi."

trying out for the fraternity. In 1971 two Michi-
gan men passed the tests and in '73 one man
made it.
