By PAUL CAMPBELL
Two fraternities involved in an in-
cident of severe racial abuse of an In-
tramural sports official have been
suspended from competition in the
major team sports within their division.
Sigma Phi Epsilon and Sigma Alpha
Epsilon, both perennial powers in the
all-year point competition in the
Fraternity Division, will not be allowed
to participate in football, water polo,
basketball, or volleyball in the 1977-78
THE INCIDENT which led to the
double suspension by the IM
Disciplinary Board occurred at Fuller
Field on Thursday, October 13. The two
frats were scheduled to play a cham-
pionship softball game.
But, due to a clerical mistake on the
part of the IM Department, the game

BIRDS' WEAVER ALSO HONORED:
as neither manager had an adequate
recollection of the events.
Both frats are appealing the decision,
which effectively eliminates them from
the all-year competition this year, and
will present their cases later this week.

trying to do the things we do better -
we must improve our execution and

When informed that his team is rank-
ed sixth both in AP and UPI Schem-
bechler replied, "After what happened,
I'm surprised we're even sixth."

NEW YORK - Sparky Lyle of the
New York Yankees, who has never
started a game in 11 major league
seasons, became the first American
League relief pitcher to win the Cy
In balloting released yesterday by
the Baseball Writers Association of
America, Lyle picked up 56% points
to tie Jim Palmer of the Baltimore
Orioles, a previous three-time win-
ner, who had 48 points. Strikeout king
Nolan Ryan of the California Angels
finished third with 46 points, followed
by Dennis Leonard of the Kansas
City Royals, who had 45.
The left-handed Lyle, whose 201
career saves are a major league
record, received nine first place
votes, three for second and 2% votes
for third place. That gave him his
total of 56% points under the system
which awards five points for first,
three for second and one for third.
Lyle, 33, led the Yankees to the AL
East title for the second straight year
with a 13.5 record, 26 saves and a
league-leading 2.17 earned run aver-
age. His victories in games four and
five of the AL playoffs against
Kansas City sent the World Cham-
pion Yankees into the World Series,
where he picked up the opening game
victory against Los Angeles.

BALTIMORE - Earl weaver, who
led the Baltimore Orioles to 97 vic-
tories and a surprising second-place
Eastern Division tie behind the world
champion New York Yankees, was
named American League Manager of
the Year yesterday in a landslide
"It's certainly an honor, and I'm
proud," Weaver said, "but it's a
tribute to the Baltimore organization
and the ballplayers. Nothing counts
unless the guys a manager calls on to
do the job can do it."
Weaver received 248 votes in a na-
tionwide poll of writers and broad-,
casters conducted by the Associated
Press. Whitey Herzog of the Western
Division champion Kansas City Roy-
als was a distant runner-up with 54
Chicago's Bob Lemon, who had the
White Sox in contention in the West
most of the season, was third with 52,
followed by Billy Martin of the Yanks
with 38. Martin won the award last
year with the Yanks and in 1974 with
the Texas Rangers.

Michigan's women's volleyball
team traveled to Western Michigan
last night and came up on the short
end of a five-game match, losing
three games to two.
The Wolverines took the opening
match 15-10, but the Broncos came
back to take the second game 15-11.
Michigan rebounded to win game
three 15-3, but couldn't put the match
away, as Western Michigan took the
next two games by identical 15-11

He added that the date for Hubbard's
return to action will not be determined
until after the operation is completed.
Hubbard paced the Wolverine attack
last season by leading the team in
scoring and rebounding and is slated to
co-captain the 1977-78 Michigan team
with guard Dave Baxter.
The junior from Canton, Ohio first
hurt his knee while playing for the
U.S. in the World Games in Bulgaria
last summer. The injury wass repor-
tedly healed when the team began
workouts October 17, however, Hub-
bard came down with a rebound in that
practice, reinjuring the knee.
In response to Hubbard's need for
surgery, Michigan coach Johnny Orr
