Cor'ner-stone' (kor'ner-ston') -
Something of fundamental importance; a
trait or fact upon which others rest as if
forming a superstructure.-1.
In trying to establish a brand new
Michigan women's track team, Coach
Red Simmons needed to find himself a
cornerstone, someone who by herself
could lend the team some badly needed
respectability.
THUS ENTERS junior Pam Moore.
With Simmons trying to nurture his
freshmen and with outstanding fresh-
man Darlynda Key sidelined due to
illness much of the indoor season, it has
been Moore's task to run in four or five
events a meet - hoping to take the
pressure off the others.
"If I lose her from this group," stated
Simmons, "There's nothing left. She's

the fastest and the best runner I have."
Moore doesn't mind the pressure. "It
means nothing. I'm very competitive
and I enjoy it," she added, "But I do
wish that Didi (Key) would come
back."
MOORE HAS SET school records at
practically every meet she has com-
peted in this year,
For the time being, Moore must be
satisfied with personal achievements
rather than team wins. She
acknowledges that, but looks to the
time when Michigan develops into a
contender.
"It's so obvious that we're not going
to have a real strong team," Moore
commented, "but it's going to be a
pleasure to come back and watch them
(after graduation)."
A MEMBER OF Ionia High's state
champion women's team her senior
year, Moore came to Michigan even
though it lacked a women's team. She
opted instead for Simmons' amateur
Michigammes club, where Simmons
shaped her raw potential into perfor-

mance.
"She was at the same level of
progress as she was in high school,"
said Simmons, "She hadn't stopped
running, it was just that she hadn't had
a lot of competition.
"She's to the point where she has con-
fidence in herself," he added, "she'll
work now, everything you want her to
do and more."
WHAT IS EXPECTED of her is
merely running in both the 880 and mile
relays, along with the 60, 220 and quar-
ter-mile individual events. She often
comes through, as evidenced by her two
individual and two relay victories in a
meet with Central Michigan three
weeks ago.
Moore credits Simmons with im-
proving her time in the sprints, but
when asked to give an opinion on her 68-
year-old mentor, Moore was at a loss
for words.
Simmons had less trouble in stating
his thoughts. "I could use 15 to 20 more
of her," he said, "we'd be pretty hard to
beat."

Basketball at Crisler.
. ..more than justa game
By RICK MADDOCK
From the first moment I walk into Crisler Arena for a basketball game
to my exit through the tunnel, I cannot think of a more comfortable place to
be at this University. I've had this feeling since the first few games I viewed
in Crisler, two years ago.
First of all, I am not an avid basketball fan by any means. I don't enjoy
myself at Crisler solely because of the basketball game itself. There's
something else in the Crisler atmosphere that somehow makes you feel like
you're away from the Ann Arbor scene.
Sure, there's still plenty of Maize and Blue around just to remind you of
where you're at, but the entire arena serves as a place where students can
forget about that mid-term, for at least a couple of hours. And this is impor-
tant for the sanity of many students during the Yukon-like winters of
Michigan.
Crisler's 13,609 capacity is a good check on the athletic department's
moneymaking desires .The conmnon undergraduate is not just sand in a beach
of 104,000 maize and blue grains at Crisler. Yet, the athletic department's
student ticket limit policy may jeopardize this positive feature in the years
ahead.
, If I had to pick the most brain ingraining attribute of Crisler, it has to be
the guitar section of the band. I'm constantly humming one of their songs
hours after a game. I've talked with others who have the same side effect
from a Michigan basketball game. And during warm-ups, the players from
both sides are obviously sparked by some of the more rhythmic pieces.
The basketball band seems personalized at Crisler. At football games,
all one sees of the band is a bunch of uniformed people in various formations.
The basketball band members are a vocal section of the crowd. During the
Iowa game, it was the band which started the eerie 'Art' cheer to antagonize
a deserving Big Ten official, Art White. The band is there to entertain, and
yet the members are still able to be a part of the crowd.
In addition to the existing divisions of people, such as press, athletic
department, alumni and students there is the blue and gold section divide.
It's similar to first class and economy sections in an airplane. And although
the gold section isn't terrible to watch a game from, I'd rather be in the blue.
Boisterous fans in the blues
The blue section, besides offering a relief to the eyes, also receives more
attention before the game as it justly should. Those ticketholders (at least in
the student part) sacrificed much time to secure those precious seats. They
have to be close to the action. The warm-ups and the cheerleaders' pre-game
activities, along with the band, prepare the blue section's fanatic fans for a
night of voice-straining screaming.
But for many in the gold regions, these activities aren't close enough to
capture much interest, or at least the fans aren't as engulfed in the carnival
environment. Maybe because they don't have the need to be prepared for the
game like the fanatics in the blue.
During the game, those in the gold have some problems such as not
being able to see the scoreboard or getting their ears blown out by the buz-
zer. Meanwhile, those in the blue get to see the bruising Mike McGee takes to
get position inside. The fans in the blue also have the opportunity to let the A-
B-C officials know what they think of the current controversial call. And it's
amazing how much better the refs' ears are than their eyes.
Purdue has a much better scoreboard arrangement in Mackey Arena.
There, is a scoreboard in every corner around the floor. That way, every fan
is looking directly at a scoreboard. Knowing the score without having to
strain your neck can be considered a luxury by many at Crisler.
Another unique feature at Crisler is the noise level. At Purdue or In-
diana, the decibel level registers ear-shattering almost all of the time. The
noise level at Crisler, however, hardly ever reaches that high intensity. Yet,
in a strange way because of this lack of constant noise, things seem that
much wilder when an exciting play occurs. Then, the noise level jumps from
nothing to ear-rupturing, which forms quite a rowdy effect. The crowd has
seemed louder this year, probably due to the inconsistencies on the court.
Although this season has not
been as successful as those in the
near pas, and there have been a
few no-shows in the last two
S * games as a result, most of the
Crisler contingent appears. this
or any other time, goes to show that there is
you know we'll something about an evening or a
be here. Saturday afternoon at Crisler,
which just doesn't center around
U -M STYLISTS whether or -not Michigan wins or
loses. Whether its record is 10-0
or 6-4. And this is the primary
UNION reason why I like Crisler-even
with its drawbacks-so much.
