WOODEN
Bruin students riot in
Unprecedented orgy.
SMOG-TOWN - Former University of Michigan Basketball men-
tor John Orr was named yesterday to replace John Wooden at thej
University of California at Los Angeles. Bruin Athletic Director
Charles Young made the announcement at a combination press con-
ference and Tupperware party.
Young was especially jubiliant about his choice. "Orr is just
what our basketball program needs," said -the UCLA leader. "He'll
add some spice to our campus.
"He's done a great job out there at Michigan. Look what he did
last year. He took a bunch of frankly mediocre boys and brought them
in with a fine 13-11 record. The man deserves some recognition."
"I am sorry we had to let Wooden go," Young continued. "But
a change was in order." Young went on to confirm that Wooden was
released because his style of basketball was boring:
"Students were falling asleep,"
said Young. ::.:::::.. . . ...

FIRED ORR

HIRED!
Tragedy in
WHEN THE long-traveled road
finally came to an end for John
Wooden, he was at Pauley Pavil-
lion putting up the nets. Athletic
I Director Charles Young and Cali-
fornia regent Max Rafferty ap-
proached him to tell him the bad
news. Wooden bowed his head and
remained gratified by their offer
Sto find him a tenured position in
the plant department.
Wooden has not indicated yet
just what he would do.
Two reasons contributed to Wood-
en's downfall; the disastrous 1966
season, and his failure to publish
in any recognized journal.
The 1966 season started off bad-
ly for the, master as the lowly
frosh trounced his warriors in a
pre-season clash. Led by talented
Mike Warren, the varsity squad,
after two promising years, fell
apart.
But it was the failure to publish
that really hurt Wooden. Collea-
gues were divided on the question.

"JOHN WAS great working with
the young men but he didn't really
have it scholarship-wise, if you
catch my meaning," said Louisville
head coach Denny Crum, a long1
time associate of the Bruin men-
tor. "He had only a slight grasp
of the concept of subjective other-
ness. And you can't be successful
in this business if you don't have
it down pat."
Others were quick to defend
him. 'He was great in setting up a
zone defense."
Also mitigating against Wooden
were his advancing years. T h e:
sight of his cane-aided walk to his
cottage just off campus was as
familiar as was his garbled speech.

denied that the Tigers were made up of old men. "Just because we

The h a p 1 e s s Philadelphia
76ers, searching for basketball tal-
ent in any shape or size in an ef-
fort to revive their sagging league
record, announced yesterday they
were negotiating with nine-year-
old f o u r t h - g r a d e r,
Johnny "Swish" Wilson and his
lawyers for permission to draft the
talented cager in the upcoming
NBA hardship draft, April 9.
76er Coach Kevin Koughery said
of the Leningrad, Idaho native,
"He's 4-8, dribbles well, and can
rebound with the best of them."
When asked by reporters how
~COIF. s

"Swish" could qualify for the
hardship draft, Loughery replied,
"His allowance was cut to 25c a
week by his mother because he
wouldn't finish "his vegetables and
you know about the cost of living
and how much trouble youngsters
have making ends meet."
According to a source close to
the club, Philadelphia is offering
Wilson $2 million in cash, stock

options, and a complete set of 1973
baseball cards.
Loughery saw no reason why
the 85 pounder couldn't move into
the starting lineup next year.
"Swish" has all the tools. He can
play both guard and forward and
shot 42 per cent for his fourth
grade team."
"If we can't get Walton (Bill, of
UCLA), Wilson's our man."

I strongly support the AATA public transportation proposition as a first
