paying a dollar more for a seat at
Michigan, Michigan State and oth-
er Big Ten football games this
season, school officials have said,
and there will be an additional
1,500 seats at the U-M stadium to
Michigan Athletic Director Don
Canham said, "Price increases
were approved for all Big Ten
schools at the Big Ten confer-
ence meetings in December," but
said the decision was not re-
leased because, "they had to be
approved by the athletic boards
at the member schools."
The U-M price hike was ap-
proved Jan. 10, Canham said.
Burt Smith, MSU's athletic direc-
tor, said his school approved the
increase Jan. 15.
Seats at U-M's 101,001-seat sta-
dium have been rearranged, Can-
ham said, creating 1,500 new mon-
The average price at both
schools will jump from $6 to $7.
Michigan raised its base price'
from $5 to $6 in 1967, and Can-
ham estimated the latest increase
will bring in an additional $400,000
Michigan Stadium was the big-
gest college-owned stadium in'
the nation even before the new
seats were added.
Although all tickets at the 76,-
000-seat Spartan stadium cost the
same, same U-M seats will be sell-
ing for $9 this season, Canham
Canham also said plans to in-
stall light towers at the U-M sta-
dium have been all but abandon-
ed because the estimated cost,
$600,000 is too much.
"That really hurt us," Loken
commented, "When you're down
by that many points it's kind of
hard to come back."
The Wolverines came up with
several brilliant individual per-
formances but were hampered
somewhat by the absence of all-
around man Bruce Keeshin who
was left home for illness reasons.
Monty Falb once again showed
why he is one of the top ringmen
in the country, as he recorded a
spectacular 9.45 in his specialty.
That score was the top one of the
night for either squad.
Senior co - captain Ray Gura
turned in some sterling exercises
coming off his recent foot injury.
Gura notched a great 9.2 in the
floor exercise, a 9.1 in the vault-
ing, and an 8.8 on the otherwise
disastrous side horse.
While the Gophers' Bill Kerch-
ner scored a fine 9.3 on the high
bar, Michigan's red-haired fresh-
man sensation Bob Darden contin-
ued his acrobatics with a solid 9.2
Another pleasant treat for
Michigan was a 9.2 performance
on the parallel bars by Bob John-
son, who had not been effective
Although disappointed with the
outcome of the meet, Loken was
"We were beaten by a better
team today," he said. "With Kee.
shin out we had to juggle the line-
up a little bit. We'll be after them
at the Big Ten's".
