loneliness

EDITOR'S NOTE: Paul Lightfoot, a
Michigan graduate student has been
one of the better distance runnersn
in the area for several years. He is
originally from England and has
been competing here for the Ann
Arbor Track Club. In the following
letter to the Daily sports staff he
gives a very descriptive view of
what cross-country running is all
about.

Watching the sunset or catching
leaves as they fall from the trees,
or struggling against the wind. But
always thinking of the next race,
and the one after that, and the
track season in the Spring.
Working hard on the track once
in a while, when you have to pre-
tend it's fun through it really and
truly is not. It's a hard grind,
sometimes. But then you jog on
the golf-course the next morning
and feel so strong and exhilarated
you want to reach out and embrace
the trees, the golf-course, and the
whole world. Turned on, man, for
the price of a pair of shoes.
And now the reality, the race,
which is never fun until it is over.
All these people around you, the
ones you escaped from in the coun-
try lines. The middle of the race,
the worst time, the time when you
always want to drop out. Now it is
a struggle with just one or two
other guys, maybe, but mostly with
yourself.
Always the same, if you are in
front or behind, the same struggle
and emotion. Hoping you can get
clear of everyone before the end,

are looking great, and you know
that they are lying, giving you
false hope.
Tomorrow will be different. The
guys you are fighting now will be
beside you again, but relaxed and
running slowly. At six-minutes-a-
mile you have enough breath to
talk, and you can run fifteen or
sixteen miles and enjoy it. You can
look down on yourself from the
tree-tops, a lonely frail figure in
the middle of nowhere, with only
your own heart-beat to get you
back into town.

minutes with your lungs aching.

together, probably to keep warm,
but it sounds nice anyway.
And it is over. You beat the guy
you were most worried about, and
you can stop and watch the steam
rise off your body. You trot about,
finding out about how other people
ran, congratulating, consoling, un-
derstanding. And it is finished for
another week-end.
If you remembered that awfil
feeling of pain and weakness you
had only fifteen minutes ago, you
would never run another race. But
what you remember is this mo-
ment, when it is over and you know
you have fulfilled your hopes. So
you will be back again next week
for more pain, and one more brief
climactic moment.

Hines garners laurels

BOB STEWARD

By The Associated Press
"It's an old axiom in football,"
says Army Coach Tom Cahill,
"that when you're in trouble, you
go with your best back."
The Cadets followed that axiom
to extremes Saturday. They called
46 running plays and gave the
ball to Bob Hines on 38 of them.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound senior
from Chester, Pa., came through
with 202 yards - sixth best per-
formance in Army history - in-
cludingea 49-yard romp around
right end with six minutes left
that gave the underdog Cadets an
emotional 17-14 triumph over serv-
ice rival and nationally ranked
Air Force. He also caught four
passes.
As a result, Hines was named

NSA speaks your language

And furthermore, if you are especially adept
in certain foreign languages, the National
Security Agency is ready to give you
immediate language assignments, advanced,
refresher, or special vocabulary training or
may even train you in an entirely new
language.
Career language positions are available in the
fields of translation, transcription, analysis
and documentation. Fluency in speaking is not
essential, but knowledge of idiomatic,
colloquial and dialectal variations is desirable.

At NSA you will be joining an Agency of
national prominence-a unique civilian
organization responsible for developing
"secure" communications systems to transmit
and receive vital information.
NSA offers you this opportunity to further
broaden your knowledge of modern language
or area studies, and to use your talents in a
challenging and rewarding career while you
enjoy also the broad, liberal benefits of Federal
employment. In return, we ask that you not
only know your language, but that you be
flexible, naturally inventive and intellectually
curious. That's a lot to ask.

Where to go ... what to do: Language
applicants must take the Professional
Qualification Test (PQT) as a prerequisite to
NSA interviews for employment. Pick up a
PQT Bulletin at your Placement Office, the
sooner the better. It contains a brief
registration form which must be received in
Berkeley, California by November 28 for
the December 9 test.

had a problem," Cahill says, "so
we gave it to Bob and he con-
verted almost every time."
Hines' first big play came late in
the first period. He burst over
left tackle for 26 yards to get
Army out of the shadow of its
own goal line, ignited a 90-yard
drive that culminated in Kingsley
Fink's short plunge for a 7-0 lead.
Hines went back to work for
real in the third period - his half-
time totals were 3. carries for 53
yards - with the score 7-7. Start-
ing from the Army 20, Hines went
up the middle for six yards, up
the middle once more for eight
and around left end for four.
Then Hines went from hero to
goat and back to hero. He fum-
bled the ball away at his own 42
and Air Force turned the break in-
to a touchdown and a 14-10 lead
but with nine minutes left, the
Cadets were at their own 10 and it
was Hines time again.
He slashed over right tackle to
the 26 and then over left guard to
the 38. He took a pitchout around
right end to the 41 and cracked
over left tackle to the 46.
Shaken up on that carry, he let
Willie Thigpen lug the ball once
to the 50 and then dines drove
over right tackle to the 49. On
the next play he took another
pitchout around right end and
made it all the way to the end
zone.
An interception with three min-
utes halted an Air Force drive at
the Army 39 and, after a busted
play, Hines carried five straight
times, enabling the Cadets to use
up most of the remaining time.

All former members and peo-
ple interested in joining the Ann
Arbor TrackClub there will be
