"I even used to race people on
bikes for money, like $10, I

IN HIS FIRST year of college
William went to Muskegon Com-
munity College and then came
to Michigan after one semester.
Through a technicality Dave
lost a year of eligibility.

NO, DAVE Williamns is special,
because of what he gives to
his team besides points .in a
dual meet and outstanding
times.
One of his teammates stated
frankly, "He's our- main man,:
when he is doing good we all
are good, that doesn't mean we
do bad when he is not there,
it's just that he adds a lot to
us totally."
Dave Williams runs the 300,
600, 440, 600, and 1000 at various

to acquire all these qualities,
outstanding runner and team
leader?

Dave started running at age "When I came here it was an

here now, Jack Harvey really
is great, he cares about you as
a person, and the team is very
tight now, we are really to-
gether."
This tells you why Dave Wil-
liams is special. He talks about
the team more than himself.
There was one point when Wil-
liams despaired and it was
probably justified. It was when
sipdeven after having an out-
standing year.
"I was hurt, and deeply hurt
when I didn't get a scholarship,
so much so that I hated Michi-
gan. Jack Harvey interceeded
for me but finally I didn't need
it anymore."
WILLIAMS' philosophiy of run-
ning has matured to the point
where he says he won't die if
he loses a race.
"Never work harder than you
have to against yourself, if you
worry about who you're running
against; you'll psyche yourself
and fail. Run against yourself
and, be confident in your own
ability, that's all you can do."
It has to be a breath of fresh
air in an age of the spoiled
athlete to have a Dave Wil-
liams.

round the curve in the 300-yard dash in last Saturday's dual meet. Williams wvent on to win
this race and two others as the Wolverines topped the Spartans, 81-SO. Williams runs a variety

The Michigan women tankers
head for the Big Ten swim
meet at Indiana University to-
day with high hopes of turn-
ing in a second place showing. I
"We've been working all
year for this meet," Coach
Stu Isaac said, "and the team
is looking really good. They're
putting in their best perform-
ance of the season during prac-
tice."
Most of the women have
"peaked" in preparation for
the Big Tens. However, star
swimmers Debby Brevitz and
Kathy Knox will not peak
until the NCAA Champion-
ships in March where they
hope to finish in the top six.
Isaac still expects excellent
performances out of Knox and
Brevitz. Knox will be swim-
ming the 50, 100, 200 and 400-
yard freestyle races, while
Brevitz is expected to place
beaststroke and thed 100 and
200-yard individual medley.
"With Kathy and Debby, we
have two of the strongest swim-

mers in the conference", Isaac
enthused, "and if you combine
their talents with good sprint-
ers like Connie Ortega and
Anne Allison, we should place
second."
The Michigan State Spartans,
a strong team with a lot of
depth, are highly favored for
the number one position.
Much of Michigan's hones
rest on divers Brenda Truitt
and Sue Gottlieb, who have

turned in excellent perform-
ances in the three dual
swim meets of the season.
However, Isaac cautioned
"For the last three years at Big
Tens, the home team has worn
the diving, so we just can't tel
how our divers will come out."
"The team is really excited
for this meet", captain Kathy
Knox said. "I really think
we're going to do well. We've
been b'uilding'for this all year."

ARLINGTON, TEX.-The Texas Rangers were not able "to
make proper announcement," but the American League club
now has what the club owner says is the highest paid pitcher in
major league baseball.
Ferguson Jenkins, a 25-game winner last year, and the
Rangers reached agreement Tuesday evening for a one-year
contract of close to $175,000.
Jenkins, who is believed to have made about $125,000 last
year, is due to sign the new contract Saturday in Pompano
Beach, Fla., at the Rangers' spring training headquarters.

Finley wins
SAN FRANCISCO-Owner Charles 0. Finley moved ahead
of his players yesterday on the Oakland A's salary arbitration
scoreboard with' a victory over team captain Sal Banido'
"I'm extremely happy about it," Finley said after being
notified that an arbitrator had chosen his $100,000 offer rather
than the $125,000 salary sought by Bando in a hearing Tues-
day.
The third baseman won a $100,000 contract last year when
baseball first turned to binding arbitration as a means of
settling contract disputes. Five of nine A's who went to arbitra-
tion in 1974 wvon their cases, but the Bando decision yesterday

made the 1975 score 2-1 in favor
