Married

tanker strokes on

By CHUCK BLOOM
One of the rare things for an
athlete besides exceptional abil-
ity in his given field, is for him
to be married during his collegi-
ate career.
There are a few members of
the football team that are be-
throthed such as Mike Lantry. A
certain Big Fella who plays bas-
ketball took a trip down the
aisle. But on the whole, mar-
riage is frowned upon for an
athlete.
The only swimmer who issmar-
ried is Don Peterson, a senior
from Kendallville, Ind. Peterson
and his wife Marge were married
in their freshman year of col-
lege and have a son, Steven, who
is 1 years of age. Peterson is
majoring in general science and
hopes to be a chemistry teacher
and swim coach in Kentucky.

It has been often suggested by
many coaches that marriage and
sports do not mix like oil and
water. But Peterson thinks mar-
riage is, more often than not,
better than having a steady girl-
friend. "Some coaches say girls
tend to be more trouble when
you're going steady," Peterson
said. "They say either marry
them or drop them."
Michigan swim coach Gus Sta-
ger, who himself was married as
a student at Michigan, reflected
on a coaches view of the prob-
lem.
"It doesn't really depend on
the man but more on the woman.
She must learn to take a back-
seat to the athlete's career, or
it won't work. It really takes a
strong, remarkable woman to do
that."
Marge Peterson realizes that to

be true even though her own
realization was slow in coming.
"It took me a long time not to be
jealous of the time he spends
swimming," she said. "I wish he
was home more with Steven, but
I want him to do well in what
he's doing. I hate for him to do a
shotty job because he cut prac-
tice just to be home."
Peterson knew his wife through-
out high school but it wasn't
until a surprise party that they
really met, and started dating. "I
was having a surprise party for
a friend," Marge explained, "and
the whole class from the school
was invited. Don was downstairs
playing ping-pong with a friend
when I walked by. As I did, he
slapped me on the rear. After
that we started dating."
Peterson's marriage to Marge
and swimming has not been all
peaches and cream. Monetary ob-
ligations have interferred with
vital summer training.
"The first summer that we
werehmarried I tried to work and
swim," Peterson stated, "and I
ruined myself. I was sick all
summer and generally wrecked.
After that, I worked and forgot
about the training. Consequently,
when I returned to school in the
fall, I was woefully out of shape.
So instead of playing polo, I
worked out."

Another conflict is Peterson's
desire to be a good father to his
future shortstop son. He skips
Sunday practice to spend time
at home but still it isn't as much
as he would like because of meets
and two practices a day.
Stager says Peterson, as a
swimmer,' has beenthampered by
the team's weaknesses over the
year. Because of deficiencies in
backstroke and butterfly, Peter-
son has not been able to con-
centrate on one particular
stroke and to excell in it.
"He always swam the tough
races in the past," Stager said.
Whenever we needed a good race
in the backstroke or butterfly,
Pete got the call. Plus that, he
swam the individual medley and
sometimes all three races in a
meet. This season he can con-
centrate on the fly alone and
hopefully he can place in the
Nationals."
As a married man, Peterson
does not find his teammates re-
acting any differently, even
though he spends less time with
them than he did as a freshman.
"I wish he'd go out more with
the guys," says Marge, "be-
cause it hurts his relationship
with the team. I guess he feels
guilty if he doesn't spend time
with me.
For Peterson, Saturday's meet
with Southern Methodist is quite
important. He has been disap-
pointed with his performance so
far and a good race against SMU-
will enhance his chances on plac-
ing in the NCAA's. But his future
is with his wife and young son,
and swimming has only been a
means to achieve it.

" CHICAGO-Coach Roy Rubin of the lowly Philadelphia
76ers was fired Tuesday and replaced by Kevin Loughery, who
will serve as player-coach of the National Basketball Association
team.
The announcement was made minutes after the NBA's All-
Star game in which the East defeated the West 104-84.
Don DeJardin, general manager of the 76ers, made the an-
nouncement and said Loughery, an 11-season NBA veteran, was
given a contract which will cover the present season and the
following two years.
" CHICAGO-Quinn Buckner, Indiana's fabulous freshman
who made the usually difficult conversion from football to basket-
ball has been named the Big Ten basketball player of the week
by the Associated Press.
He scored only 10 points in the 83-71 triumph over Minnesota
but "controlled the tempo of the game" according to Gopher
Coach Bill Musselman and then pumped in 18 points in a 97-89
triumph at Michigan State Monday night.
0 BLOOMINGTON, Minn.-Gump Worsley, veteran National
Hockey League goaltender, is retiring from the Minnesota North
Stars, General Manager Wren Blair announced yesterday.

masked goalies, forged a 6-2-3 record with the North Stars early
this season before suffering a pulled hamstring muscle.

These towers carry extra-high voltage power
lines. And let's face it, many people consider
them ugly!
Why don't electric light and power companies
get with it, and put these lines underground?
The answer is: They'd like to. but they can't.

The nation's electric utilities are spending mil-
lions of dollars on research and development.
One day, they'll lick the problem. Until then,
they'll have to go on building extra-high voltage
transmission systems with towers like these. So
Michigan will have the power it needs, where it
