Calling all CLUBS
By GUNNAR E. BERG
The Michigan lacrosse team splurged for eight goals in the second half to
down the Chicago City lacrosse club champion, 11-6, Oct. 29. After dueling to a tie
in the first period and falling behind 5-3 at half, Michigan came back with four
tallies in each of the last two periods.
Bob Fleischman and Ed Anderson led the Wolverines with two goals each.
Michigan simply ran Chicago off the field by continually pressing hard and
keeping the flow of play near the opponents goal.
Lacrosse is now over for the semester and will reseume practice in January
with indoor practice and games at the Coliseum.
The Michigan sailing team got off to a sacry start and ended up a lowly four-
th at the Halloween regatta sponsored by the Leather Lips Yacht Club, Oct. 29-30.
Some shifty winds may have accounted for the fourth place finish out of 17 schools.
Miami (O), who has been frustrated by having to take the back seat to
Michigan in nearly every meet this year, finally placed first while Michigan State
was second and Ohio Weslyan was third.
Pete Smith and Bill Deuchler notched a fourth place finish in the A, while
Tom Kinney managed a first place win in the B division.
The Michifish performers have chosen "tradition" as their theme for the
spectacular Michifish Water Show, April 6, 7 and 8 of 1977.
The team features girls and a few men with a wide range of experience in
swimming and synchronized swimming. Leading the list of well-qualified people is
president of the Michifish program, Lisa Chonic.
Chomic started out on a high school swim team and now is the only person
in her fourth year of Michifish. Other people with Michifish experience are
Lou Ann Kiessling, Jeri Ann Weyher,
Ilene Degenhardt and Pamela Dix.

Woeful Wildcats next .. .
... . even Bo's confident
It's amazing, but Bo stuck to his stereotypical formula again yesterday
at his weekly press luncheon.
You see, every week the Michigan mentor must face a group of writers
from around the area who must report the pearls of wisoin which flow from
And every week, po matter how poor next Saturday's opposition may
appear on paper, Bo always digs up many a compliment about them, so that
it would appear that his Wolverines are in for a mighty tough battle come the
But this week he had to talk about Northwestern, a team whose inep-
tness is barely characterized by its 1-23 record over the past three years. Af-
ter a relatively successful 1-10 season last year, the Wildcats lost their top
two offensive threats-quarterback Randy Dean and receiver Scott
Is it humanly possible to say anything praiseworthy about these annual
Big Ten cellar-dwellers?
"Remember this," began Bo. "Their record is 0-8, but a 'Cat has nine
After proceeding to mention that Wildcat quarterback Scott Stranski
pitched the Northwestern baseball team to a victory over the Wolverine
squad two years ago he added, "There you go. This guy's got to have
That was the end of the comedy routine, though. Bo finally got serious,
which was probably the funniest part of all, since he took the opportunity to
divulge to all concerned that'Northwestern shouldn't be scoffed at.
"It's amazing. If you look at their films, they play pretty good football,"
he said. "They hang in there and they hustle. They've got a pretty good
ground game. They have nine four-year lettermen.
"They're big and strong, and they move the ball pretty well. They're the
type of team you worry about playing ..."
Is it possible the Wolverines lost two weeks ago because they were
looking ahead to the Northwestern game?
In fact, Bo failed to mention many of Northwestern's most favorable at-
tributes-those which may turn a close game into a Wildcat walloping.
" After losing 69-0 in 1975, Northwestern "held" the Wolverines to a 38-7
score last year. Extrapolating somewhat, the Wildcats should 'defeat the
Michigan squad 14-7 this season.
" They possess a 6-0, 168-pound second-string quarterback, Dana Hem-
phill, who has seen much action this year. If the Michigan linemen mistake
him for the water boy, he could cause much trouble.
" Northwestern's only victory last year occurred in East Lansing,
spoiling an otherwise perfect season. With a one game winning streak in the
state of Michigan, probably the only winning streak they've been able to
brag about in many years, the Wildcats will be further motivated on Satur-
Thus, it's possible that Bo may be a bit too secure for this Big Ten clash.
For a person who usually seems to expect the worst possible outcome every
week, he only makes it sound like the game will be close, instead of exuding
his normal ominous warnings.
With minor games ahead like Purdue and Ohio State, the Wolverines
better be able to peak for the battle with those sly 'Cats this Saturday.
