'i<No word on wounded knee
The services of Michigan's standout center, Phil Hubbard, for the up-
coming 1977-78 basketball season were still in question yesterday after team
bi physician Dr. Gerald O'Connor X-rayed the junior's left knee.
-' "As far as they (the doctors) told us there's nothing yet," said Michi-
,fan coach Johnny Orr. "There's been no diagnosis to my knowledge."
Uncertainty was the tone of the day as head trainer Lindsay McLean
also remained in the dark concerning the severity of Hubbard's injury.
The injury occured on Monday in the team's opening practice of the
season. Hubbard came down after attempting a rebound and immediately
grabbed the knee which had been previously injured while competing in the
:yorld University Games in Bulgaria last summer.
"Dr. O'Connor just isn't certain at this point whether the knee will
require an operation or some sort of knee support," said McLean. "He still
has a couple tests to perform today to check out the possibility of cartilage
t damage.
,.""We think that whatever happened is related to the previous injury,"
_-added McLean.
When reached at his apartment, Hubbard commented that the knee was
"sore with a little bit of swelling.''
Hubbard said that he'll take the next couple days off from practice and
"wait until the doctors make the determination that I can play again."
'- As to the date Hubbard will be allowed to resume workouts with the
team, McLean said simply: "Dr. O'Connor is not sure at this point how
serious the injury is and won't be certain until he completes his tests."

"You saw a great performance by a
great little quarterback," said Bo
Schembechler after the game.

said Leach. "I've always had confi-
dence in my passing game."

Sy The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Billy Martin was given a vote of confi-
dence as manager of the New York Yankees yesterday
and got a substantial bonus shortly before the start of the
sixth World Series game against the Los Angeles
GABE PAUL, president of the Yankees, made the an-
nouncement at a hastily called news conference at the
Series press headquarters hotel in New York saying:
"We hope this will put to rest the unfounded rumors
that a change was about to be, made. Martin's contract
runs through the 1979 season."
There had been recurring reports that Martin was to
be ousted as manager because of conflicts with club
owner George Steinbrenner and certain members of the
THIS WAS particularly true in the case of outfielder
Reggie Jackson, who was signed personally by Stein-

brenner to a $2.9 million, five-year contract before this
But Paul's announcement said, "We are pleased to
announce that Billy Martin will continue as. Yankee
manager and has been rewarded with a substantial
bonus in recognition of the fine job he has done."
The amount of the bonus was not disclosed.
Two weeks ago, just before the start of the American
League playoffs against Kansas City, Martin reportedly
asked to have another year added onto the length of his
contract, which calls for an estimated $100,000 a year.
THE YANKEES' announcement contained the
following statement by the peppery Martin:
"I want to thank George Steinbrenner, Gabe and the
New York Yankees for this kind of reward and ex-
pression of confidence and, of course, my warm thanks
to our players whose great performance made all this
