WAIT NO LONGER! The London Flu has arrived
in Ann Arbor, and is expected to peak in about a
week.
It's symptoms may include a sore throat, fever, cough,
headache, and general achy feeling.
HEALTH SERVICE DOCTORS HAVE THESE SUGGESTIONS:
1) STAY IN BED
2) DRINK PLENTY OF LIQUID
3) TAKE ASPIRIN
{that advice sounds vaguely familiar . . .)
Doctors even tell us that vou're better off not making the trip
outside to come to Health Service. But you should see a physician
if your fever recurs after 5 days.

bers of the "second ten," the
most explosive is likely to be
the renewal of the Florida State-
Jacksonville feud. Both teams
have been minor disappointments
- State having lost three out of
twelve and Jacksonville two out
of thirteen so far - but Florida
has had to overcome the loss of
star guard Ron King who has a
broken ankle, and Jacksonville
has shown occasional flashes of
brilliance, most particularly a 120-
78 rout of 13th-ranked Southwest-
ern Louisiana. This one should
be spectacular, to say the least.
Probably the best game of the
weekend, preempted from the
tube by Tricky Dick's Corona-
tion, will take place down in
Bloomington, Indiana, where the
sixth-ranked Minnesota Gophers
visit the sixteenth-ranked Hoos-
iers. Minnesota needs a win both
to reestablish its position in the
Big 10 title race and to amelior-
ate the bad effects of its upset
by Iowa, while a victory by In-
diana would clearly establish it
as a first-rank title contender,
as well as drive the Gophers to
the brink of elimination from ser-
ious title contention.
Minnesota invades Bloomington
fresh from that impressive victory
over Marquette, and with 6-9
Jim Brewer, 6-10 Ron Behagan
and 6-9 Clyde Turner up front
they are big, strong and rugged.
Brewer is their superstar, last
year's Big 10 MVP, a member of
the snakebit U.S. Olympic b a s-
ketball team, a good shooter, and
extremely powerful at grabbing
rebounds and playing defense.
Indiana will counter with a
shorter but quicker lineup high-
lighted by freshman Quinn Buck-
ner who, now fully recovered
from the experience of playing
Indiana football, is beginning o
more than live up to his super-
star billing.
The Ohio State-Iowa g a m e
should particularly appeal to
those people who get their jol-
lies from betting on tiddlywinks
and collecting stamps from the
Seychelle Islands. Both teams
have been doggedly mediocre: a
plus for Iowa, a minus for OSU.
Iowa has one outstanding play-
er, 7-foot center Kevin K u n-
nert, who averages 18 points and
14 rebounds per game, and a
pair of capable guards in JC-
transfer Candy LaPrince and
Rick Williams. Although t h e y
have lost three in a row follow-
ing their upset of Minnesota,
Buckeye Coach Fred Taylor
speaks of them with respect.
"They are the type of team
that can play well, a very up-
tempo type." Considering t h e
way his team has been playing,

UJCLA
Taylor has every right to be wor-
ried.
Ohio has made some personnel
changes for the Iowa game.
Slumping Luke Witte has been
benched, and Craig Taylor w i 11
start at center in place of re-
gular Bill Andreas, who h a s
been ill with the flu and a cold.
Allan Hornyak should have little
trouble equalling his 23.8 season
scoring average, ,but none of the
other OSU starters averages
more than 9.7 points.
Iowa and OSU have played
one common foe: Michigan. Both
lost, Ohio by a 68-62 count at
Columbus, Iowa by a 71-59 tally
at Crisler Arena.
Another also-rannish matchup
has the Michigan State Spartans
visiting Madison, Wisconsin to
take on the hopeless Badgers.
Wisconsin began the year with
high enough hopes, but a first-
game slaughtering by UCLA be-
gan a pattern which has contin-
ued through its most recent de-
feats by Indiana, Illinois, and
Minnesota. Granted, these a r e
good teams, easy to lose to, but
so is MSU.
Badger mainstays are 6-11 cen-
ter Kim Hughes and 6-4 guard
Gary Anderson, and Coach John
Powless has claimed that "this
squad has the best talent, the
best depth we've had at Wis-
consin. This is as eager and com-
petitive a group of players as
I've had." Considering r e c e n t
Badger basketball history, he
might be right.

From games involving mem-

eatherspoon paces short Illini
in tough hoop battles this season

By GEORGE HASTINGS
Illinois basketball coach Harv
Schmidt faces a tough situation.
In a normal Big Ten year of the
past, his Illini team would be one
of the stronger squads, at least a
dark-horse contender for the con-
ference crown.
But in this vintage Big Ten year
Illinois, a team without a big front
line in a league with lots of big
front lines, is going to have to play
excellent ball merely to stay. out
of the second division.

ing, pulling down 11.8 caroms per
contest, as well as being one of.
the Illini's best defensive per-1
formers.
Schmidt is touting Weatherspoon
as an All-America possibility, and
so far he has played that way, as
his figures put him in the con-
ference's top five in both scoring
and rebounding. .
Also considered strong points for
the Illini are the two guard spots.
Jeff Dawson, a senior, has been a
tremendous addition this year to
Illinois, after sitting out last sea-
son as a transfer, playing his fresh-
man and sophomore seasons for
Duke.
A good outside shooter, Dawson
has provided fine scoring help for
Weatherspoon, averaging 19.9 per
contest. ;Dawson, whose brother
Jim was all-Big Ten for the Illini
in 1967, is also the team's chief
playmaker.
STARTING at the other guard is
a manRwho can also play forward,
6-6 Otho Tucker. The sophomore
has been a bright surprise for
Schmidt, averaging 11 points so
far this season.
The two front line mates for
Weatherspoon, however, have been
the sore spots. The Illini's 6-6
center, Nick Conner, has been'
playing fairly well, scoring 12.2
a game and pulling down nearly
10 boards, but just cannot physi-I
cally match other Big Ten centers
such as Kevin Kunnert, Jim Brew-
er, and Ken Brady.
The other forward snot has also
been tough to fill, as two more 6.5
players, Rick Schmidt and RJed+
Foster, have been splitting thej
playing time.

SO FAR, though, the Illini have
been playing some good basket-
ball despite their physical handi-
caps. They sport a 7-4 record, with
two wins and a loss in Big Ten
play, including an impressive 80-78
win over Iowa last Saturday in
Champaign.
One of their more impressive
performances was actually a loss,
to UCLA. In that game, the finale
of the Sugar Bowl Classic in New
Orleans, the Illini kept even with
the awesome Bruins through most
of the ,first half, then stayed within
seven or eight points the rest of
the contest, but never could get
close enough to tie it up, going
down by a very respectable 71-64
score.
Illinois' problem has been, one
which Michigan fans can sympa-
thize with-the Illini have been
able to win only at home. They're
6-0 on their home court, but only
1-4 in foreign territory.
The pattern so far has carried
over into the Big Ten schedule
perfectly. Both Illinois victories,
the upset over Iowa as well as a
76-74 win over Wisconsin, have
been achieved on home ground.
MEANWHILE, the only loss suf-
fered by the Illini in the confer-
ence was incurred at Purdue,
where Illinois took a 91-80 setback
from the Boilermakers.
So, when the Illini, idle today
and next Saturday take their home
floor again for a Big Ten contest,
they will be playing in an arena
in which they have not yet lost
this year, Wolverine fans should
be wary, for Michigan is that next
opponent, and this Illinois team is
going to pull some upsets during
the course of the year.
