Reporting Garden hoops . .
you can't miss Henry
FOR MANY college hoopsters, the opportunity to play at Madi-
son Square Garden is a dream come true. However, my big
chance to join many of New York's top reporters in covering
the E.C.A.C. Holiday Festival this past Christmas ended up as
a dream turned total disappointment. Although the tournament
specifically highlighted collegiate cage competition, the manage-
ment at MSQG looked upon the members of the student press
as a pesty bunch of college punks.
While the established reporters followed the red carpet to
the press table located adjacent to the playing surface, fellow
Dailyreporter Marc Feldman and I were hastily directed to a
desolate press level that was high enough up to permit us to
bump our heads on the fabled Garden ceiling. From this view-
point, the basketball court was the size of a postage stamp.
Not only did Marc and I enjoy the privilege of sitting virtual-
ly alone at the table, but the Garden went as far as to make us
feel like the fans in the stands as we scrambled to find a seat
that wasn't saturated with beer slime and peanut shell chips. .. .
Finding the excitement at our table unbearable we decided
to venture down t the floor table to pick up some of the press
releases from the participating schools. It was at that moment
we ran across one of the many grouchy Garden SOB's. This
decrepit ignoramus refused to recognize our press badges de-
fiantly spouting, "You kids get back where you belong".
You must realize that was the fool's one chance to play Mr.
Powerful and only with the greatest reluctance, he granted Marc
and I the one-page scoring 'statistics. However, the classy press
books were still off limits. I became obsessed with the hope
that some time during the game, some 6-11 center would become
enraged and starting beatingup on the 5-4 punk.
This release of emotional anguish brought thirst and hunger
pains upon us, so we headed towards the press lounge to gorge
on some free food and drink. But my eyes set upon the 6-5 Irish
giant behind the bar, affectionately known as Henry the bar-
tender, and I quickly realized that the nadir of this journalistic
experience had arrived.
I asked Henry for a beer, but
first he wanted to engage in
some intelligent conversation.
Displaying his pastiest puss,
he asked, "Who are you?" I
told him I was a reporter from
Michigan. This puzzled the big
guy, "What's Michigan?" he
inquired. Good sense prompted
me not to act wise, so I told
him Michigan was a university.
To the highly-educated Henry,
this statement must h a v e
struck a sensitive nerve because
he glanced towards one of his
co-workers and muttered, "You
know, I think it would be a good
idea if we kept them college
kids out of the press lounge
next year". Having gotten that
Big Henry off his chest, Henry felt like a
new man and willingly told me I could get my own beer. How-
ever, Henry was far from leaving my life.
After watching a doubleheader from the boondocks, my eye
sight went on the blink and on the way out I mistakenly took an-
other writer's coat that was very similar to my own. After realiz-
ing my error, I returned to the Garden the night of the semi-
finals and proceeded directly to the press lounge.
As soon as sweet Henry discovered my presence, he assumed
the role of the all mighty and scorned, "Did you take the wrong
coat on Tuesday?" Apologetically, I told him what happened and
to my surprise, Henry passed it off as an honest mistake. Un-
fortunately, his sermon was not completed. He insisted that al-
though my mi'x-up was accidental, it was the rest of us "col-
lege kids" that steal the reporters' coats, hats and typewriters.
It was quite evident that Henry always wanted to play detective
and this was his moment.
Turning my small miscue iinto a magnanimous ordeal,
Henry immediately phoned the correct owner of the coat, an
AP writer from White Plains, New York. Then, satisfied that
I had been made miserable enough about the entire matter,
Henry allowed me to return to my reporting duties.
If things weren't bad enough already, the relationship be-
tween Henry and me was to take another turn for the worse.
That same evening, I was carrying around a shopping bag with
shoes which I bought in the city that afternoon. In the haste
to leave the Garden, I forgot the bag and knew that when I
returned for the last time on Saturday, he would have a new
issue to lecture me on.
Sure enough, that Saturday, Henry asked me if I had
left some shoes behind and when I responded affirmatively,
Henry broke into an obnoxious wide grin because he knew
he had gotten the upper hand once again. I was glad this
was to be my final encounter with Henry, but gradually
I was actually becoming fond of the old fool.
Even after I departed the scene, fellow writer John Papanek
later related one more incident that revealed another side of

happy Henry. First you must understand, that the money Henry
earned from his Garden wages was insufficient for survival.
During halftime of Michigan's final Garden performance,
Papanek sauntered into the press lounge for a bit of refresh-
ment. When Henry caught sight of him-long hair and beard-
he seeringly bellowed, ."Hey, did you leave a bag of pot here
the other night?" "Did you say pot?" Papanek asked the man
who looked like Dick Tracy.
"Yeah, I said pot. Did you leave some?"
"Matter of fact I did," Papanek said, playing into his
hands. "Where is it?"
"I got it right here, under the bar."
"Well, let me have it then."
"Fifteen bucks,' said big Henry.
Hopefully, the Michigan Wolverines will be invited to the
National Invitational Tournament this coming March so I and
the rest of the Daily crew can return to New York to pay
another visit on the wise and lovable Henry the bartender.

WISCONSIN MISSES BEST SWIMMERS

Tanker foes outmanned

By CHUCK BLOOM
When the government builds its
budget without the proper funds
to back it up, it is called deficit
spending. When a swimming team
builds itself around a swimmer it
doesn't have, then it should be
termed deficit swimming.
THAT IS THE problem facing
Wisconsin coach Jack Pettinger:
building the Badgers around swim-

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-The National Col-
legiate Athletic Association's gov-
erning council yesterday imposed
penalties for athletic rule infrac-
tions on New Mexico State, West-
ern Kentucky, Centenary College
and Howard University.
The committee refrained from
acting on court-sheltered South-
western Louisiana, also charged
with code violations.
The council placed New Mexico,
State, Western Kentucky and
Centenary on two year probation
periods in connection with bas-
ketball infractions and put How-
ard on one-year probation for
soccer irregularities.
The action came on the eve
of the NCAA's 67th annual con-
vention, opening Thursday, with
a hot battle expected on proposed
splitting of the NCAA membership
into large and small school di-
visions.
Warren Brown, the NCAA's as-
sistant executive director in
charge of infractions, said that
the four schools "reprimanded,
censured and placed on proba-
tion" would begin their penalties
effective Tuesday Jan. 16.
Although it was expected the
council at its session Tuesday
would also punish Southwestern
Louisiana, whose basketball team
is ranked 13th nationally, Brown
said the NCAA was powerless to
act in the wake of a federal court
restraining order obtained by the
southern school last weekend.
The southern basketball power
reportedly has been charged with
126 recruiting violations, but it'
appeared the school might weath-
er out the current basketball sea-

ment play before facing official

Brown said although the re-
straining order extends until Mon-
day, the council adjourns its cur-
rent meeting Sunday and does not
have a regular scheduled infrac-
tions meeting until April.
Brown said there is a possibil-
ity of a special meeting but in-
dicated that a federal court at
Lafayette, La. could issue an ex-
tension of the injunction to give
Southwestern Louisiana further
time to present its case.
The punishment of New Mexico

ball players, one of the nation's
leading scorers, John Williamson,
and, Roland Grant.
Several other athletes and pros-
pective athletes also were involv-
ed in a series of NCAA charges
concerning illegal financial aid
and unauthorized transportation.
Western Kentucky of Bowling
