Perez was a walkon in the fall and has
now won challenge matches that have
moved her from the last spot on the
team to the number three spot, where
she expects to continue challenging.
"Leticia is playing very well," At-
wood said. "She's a great runner and a
very effective volleyer. She's so fast
and so athletic that she can outrun most
of heir opponents. Leticia and our great
recruits this year will make up for
Barb's absence and make us a top con-
tender in the area if we play well."
With Selden's departure the team has
only one performer past her sophomore
year, captain Missy Pollick. "We must
be an improving team, because each
year I've been here I've been moved
down on the team," commented

The strength of this team makes
Selden's absence a bit easier to take,
although her presence would have
made Michigan the favorite among Big
Ten teamns if all the women played at
the top of their ability.
"I wanted to play this year, and the
sad thing is my schedule is thinning out
now," Selden said. "I was studying so
much I only was getting three or four
hours of sleep, so I probably wouldn't
have helped the team that much.

Even with the loss of Barb Selden the
Michigan women's tennis team has its
character. The energy of Leticia Diaz-
Perez and the ability of Sue Weber and

of women with tennis rackets.

Spinks stripped of
title; Norton champ
By The Associated Press
MEXICO CITY - The World Boxing Council withdrew heavyweight
championship recognition from Leon Spinks and gave it to Ken Norton
yesterday on the grounds that Spinks was avoiding the top-ranked Norton
and that he was dealing in bad faith with the WBC.
The action means the world now has two heavyweight champions, since
Spinks, who upset Muhammad Ali for the universal title February 15, still is
recognized as champion by the rival World Boxing Association, which is
smaller than the WBC.
'The decision is one of the most difficult we have had to take," WBC
President Jose Sulaiman said at a news conference at his home here. "It
always leaves a bitter taste in our mouth to dethrone a champion.
"But boxing as a sport should be governed by laws and regulations over
and above business interests."
Norton told The Associated Press by telephone from Los Angeles:
"Being that I'm a fighter and being that I'm very competitive, I would have
liked to win the title in the ring. But being that the champion chose not to
fight me and being that he signed a legal document to fight me and violated
it, I'll"take it this way and get him later.
"I'm very grateful. It shows that the WBC does keep its word. It shows
that boxing does have a governing body," said Norton.
Spinks is only the second heavyweight champion to lose title recognition
outside the ring. In 1967, Ali was stripped by all boxing governing bodies for
refusing to accept the military draft.

Whether this is your first, fifth or fiftieth
attempt to stop smoking, it will be your last.
Because our 5-day group program neutralizes your desire for tobacco.

You don't need anyone to tell you the draw-
backs of smoking but if you continue smoking
in face of the evidence, you probably need help
in quitting. Or maybe it's easy for you to stop,
but staying stopped is something else.
If you want to quit smoking, we will show you
how to stop. At the end of five days, you will be
through with cigarettes forever. Even the most
hard to cure smokers find that the Smoke
Stoppers program works for them.
How Smoke Stoppers Works
Our program doesn't just stop you from smok-
ing, but rids you completely from your depen-
dence on nicotine. We don't use hypnosis,
scare tactics or filters and devices to get you to
stop smoking. And you won't need will power
either. Years of research on habit formation
allow our skilled therapists to show you how to
quickly break your smoking habit through the
development of new associations in the sub-
conscious memory.

Here's What People Say
About Smoke Stoppers
Many people tell us that a valuable part of our
program is the section that shows you how to
minimize or eliminate the weight gain that
often accompanies smoking cessation pro-
grams. Here are some of the other things our
graduates tell us about our program:
Mr. S. G. from Southfield -
2 pack a day smoker for 10 yrs.
"I had tried to quit smoking about ten other times by myself
but without success. With the help of the program I am now
free of cigarettes for the first time since high school and I
have not been irritable either.
Mrs. C. S. from Ann Arbor -
1 pack a day smoker for 23 yrs.
"I was amazed that after the first day I hardly had any urges
for a cigarette nor did I1crave food. The Smoke Stoppers
program made this possible:'
Mr. T. C. from Grosse lie -
4 pack a day smoker for 46 yrs.
"I didnt know quitting could ever be this easy. The Smoke
Stoppers program was almost magical in the way it got me
off cigarettes and has kept me off. l'1lnever smoke again.'
