Engineering

(Continued from Page 1)
SINCE 1969, the engineering
school has sent out a recruiting
team of four representatives which
includes a faculty member and at
least one woman student.
The team travels to high schools
and county fairs around southeast-
ern Michigan encouraging high
school women to consider engineer-
ing.
The program, organized by the
Society of Women Engineers and
Raymond Carroll, assistant to the
dean and director of continuing en-
gineering education, is designed to
inform women early in high school
of the requirements for engineer-
ing school admission so they can
acquire the prerequisites.
WOMEN STUDENTS say they
are extremely happy with the en-
gineering school. Although they are
very much in the minority in
classes, they maintain that "male
students accept us as a matter of
course." Teachers are "very open-
minded and more than willing to
help," the women say.

Frisbee meet takes guts

(Continued from Page 1)
THE CHALLENGER indicates he
about to throw the disque.
He screws his body into a con-
torted wind-up, and then, in a
burst of movement as fast as a
streaker on hot summer pavement,
-he violently hurls the frisbee in
a flash so fast it defies sight.
The receiver hopefully extends
his hand in the direction of the
throw - and catches it miracu-
lously.'
He is safe until the next round,
having successfully braved the
danger of sustaining a broken
thumb, or other possible injury.
Now it is his turn to throw.
IT TAKES bulldog courage to
participate in this sport. It also
takes incredible nerve, audacity
and guts.
"Guts" frisbee is what its
called.
The scene of this guts frisbee
debacle, as well as many others
occurring simultaneously, was part
of the tournament held yesterday
afternoon at the Intramural Build-
ing Gym.
Approximately 84 contest partic-
ipants, some of them coming from
as far away as Berkeley, Califor-
nia and Massachusetts, trans-
formed the IM building into a gla-
diator-like arena, with competing
teams battling across the gym.

floor for the entire afternoon. The
contestants sparred in the main
event - the guts frisbee tourna-
ment - as well as in other events
testing accuracy and distance.
ACCORDING TO guts frisbee
rules, competing teams of three
face each other off fifteen yards
apart and try to hurl the frisbees
in such a. manner that, while keep-
ing it within the receiver's arm
reach, he is unable to catch it
with one hand.
There are no restrictions on the
manner in which the frisbees may
be thrown, however, resulting in
the adoption of speed, spins, dips,
and other Herculean maneuvers by
the frisbee. hurlers to Prevent a
successful catch by their oppon-
ents.
ONE THING was quite evident
in the tournament competition yes-
terday afternoon, however. These
were no amateurs.
Sporting colorful T-shirts bear-
ing such team names as the "Kar-
ma Busters," "Liberated Guts,"
and "West End Scrap Metal,"
many of the contestants yesterday
have been at it for years, and
sometimes travel the country to
participate in what comes close to
a frisbee tournament circuit.
Between the fate-defying guts
frisbee bouts the contestants often
hang around to talk shop and see
iold friends.
