GREENSBORO - In the third-

earlier last night, UCLA's Pete
Trgovich triggered a 26-3 Bruin
explosion shortly after the start
of the second half to lead the ex-
NtCAA champs to a 78-61 romp

game with their starters on the

head outdoors


The Michigan track team has
been looking forward to spring
since the onslaught of winter and
will be overjoyed with the sight
of the first crocus. Lacking an
indoor facility, the thinclads com-
muted to Ypsilanti twice a week
for practice and consequently
had a disappointing indoor sea-
son, garnering only fifth place
in the Big Ten meet.
"We'll definitely be better in
the outdoor Big Tens," coach
D i x o n Farmer remarked.
"They'll have the discus outside
and our 440-yard relay should
finish no lower than third."
Steve Adams is the defending
Big Ten champion in the discus
and is also the early favorite in
the shot put. Adams, a senior,
will set his sights on the Michi-
gan record of 185-5, and assist-
ant coach Jack Harvey feels that
the "Big Fella" will break 190.
Co-captain Kim Rowe, defend-
ing 440 champion, will receive
some of the best competition he
will ever face in practice. Dave
Williams, who placed fourth in
the 600 at the NCAA indoor na-
tionals, will probably drop. to the
quarter-mile to join Rowe and
freshman Jeff McLeod.
Freshman Andy John-
son, plagued by mono early in
the indoor season, came on to
finish third in the 880 in the Big
Ten. Johnson will not only run
the half-mile with Bob Mills and
Steve Thirys but most likely will
run the remaining- leg of the
mile-relay with Rowe, Williams,'
and Mcleod.

Miler Bill Bolster will replace
McLeod to form a special two- .
mile relay for the Dogwood re-
lays in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Dave Eddy and steadily improv-
ing Fred Gault will also be run-
ning the mile.
Greg Meyer will switch from
the mile to the steeplechase, one
of the most grueling events.
"Gregg did hurdles in high
school and he's really interest-
ed," Farmer asserted .
Meyer is not the only freshman
who will be trying a new event
Tris Carta will run the 440-yard
intermediate hurdles and will
face the unpleasant task of run-
ning. against Bob Casselman.
The Wolverines' most bally-
hooed new recruit, KensDelor is
still ineligible. This leaves the
100 and 220 in the hands of Jim
Howe and Tim Ossman. They
will have to improve Immensely
before they can expect to score
points in a championship meet,
but should provide adequate
competition for duals.
Junior Keith Brown and soph-
omore Jon Cross, who hold the
school records in the three-mile
and six-mile runs, respectively,
will carry the load for the Maize
and Blue in the long distance
events. Brown had a good sea-
son indoors but enjoys running
outside more and runs best in
the open air.
Ace hurdler Godfrey Murray
has graduated leaving a glaring
hole in the 120-yard high hur-
dles, and no one has come along
yet to fill it there providing a
source of joy for Michigan dual

meet opponents.
The Wolverines will be highly
competitive in all of the jumps.
Abe Butler and Pete Hill both
scored in last years Big Ten
meet, but had disappointing in-
door seasons. Hill has been ham-
pered by injuries throughout his
career, but is finally healthy and
Harvey expects him to surpass
the 50 ft. barrier in the triple
In addition to the long and
triple jumps, Butler may also
be saddled with the extra duty of
running in the 440-yard relay
with Rowe, Howe and an unde-
termined fourth.

Pole vaulters Terry Hart and
Ed Kulka have been the perform-
ers most affected by no place to
practice during the winter
months. Now being able to work
outside, Coach Harvey main-
tains that "both will do extreme-
ly well and will come damn close
to 16-10.
The cindermen's first outing
will be the Dogwood Relays on
April 13, but their first home
meet will not be until May 4
when the Hurons of Eastern
Michigan visit Ann Arbor. The
conference championships will
be held here on the weekend of
May 18.

We've Got It
We Love It
You Will Too

Your landlord wants you to vote against
Rent Control. You know, the guy who comes
around once a month for the rent. The guy
who never fixes the leak in the ceiling or the
broken kitchen window.
Now, with a taste for the absurd, he and his
fellow landlords call themselves "Citizens
for Good Housing." And they're spending
your rent in a slick well-financed campaign
against Rent Control.
To top it all off, they say they're doing it to
protect you the tenant. But landlords really
w a n t to protect their exorbitant profits.
Rent Control means an end to this rental
On April i tell your landlord you can pro-
tect yourself. Vote yes on Rent Control.
