"The Bodnars are very interested in a
school with high academics," said Frieder,
who took time out to visit Barberton earlier
in the week. "They're looking at law, busi-
ness, medicine. I'm not sure who our corn-
petition is, other than Duke."
ANOTHER GUARD on the list is 6-4 John-
ny Johnson from Nichols High in Buffalo,
New York. Johnson attended the Johnny Orr
Basketball Camp last summer.
Ray Murdock, a 6-3 guard from Detroit
Southwestern, visited Minnesota over the
weekend. He said his choice was between
the Gophers and Michigan, although the lat-
ter had done nothing to recruit him.
But now Michigan is expressing some in-
terest. Murdock recently scored 42 points
against Cass Tech, whose coach called him
"another Ralph Simpson."
AND FINALLY, the answer to Phil Hub-
bard's prayers - yes, Phil, the coaches will
try for a big center.
Jim Smith is one possibility. The 6-10
senior from East -Tech in Cleveland made
an official campus visit and came up for
the Illinois game on his own.
Michigan is also looking at Mike Robin-
son, the younger brother of Michigan co-
captain Johnny Rob. Robinson, 6-10, is at-
tending DuPage Junior College in Glen Ellyn,
HERB WILLIAMS, a 6-9 high school for-
ward, is also on the list. Williams is from
Marion-Franklin High in Columbus and has
received some All-America attention.
Michigan can sign players to Big Ten let-
ters of intent on March 1, and national let-
ters on April 13.
"We hope to sign several players to na-
tional letters the 13th," said Frieder. "If we
sign them to Big Ten letters and they haven't
made a decision by April 13, that's just so
many scholarships that we can't give out
to someone else.
"We might sign a player like Earvin
(Johnson), who is interested in other Big Ten
schools, to a Big Ten letter if we get the
chance though," Frieder added.

THE MEET, begins Friday at
7:30 p.m. with compulsory com-
petition, and continues Saturday
at 1:00 p.m. with the optional
exercises. The Quadrangular will
be conducted in the format of
the Big' Ten and NCAA cham-
pionships and consequently is
important in estimating the rel-
ative strength of the competing
Coach Newt Loken of Michigan
foresees keen competition and
a good show. "We've scored
higher than the other schools in
optional competition, but the ad-
dition of compulsory exercises to
the meet could make a differ-
ence," Loken said.
Loken is mostly concerned
with the compulsories since this
is the first year that these par-
ticular exercises have been per-
formed. They have equal weight
with the optional competitions in
this championship meet.
Co-captain Scott Ponto is
encouraged by the steadily im-
proving Wolverines. 'Each
week'we've added more points
to our score. If we continue
to hit our routines by cham-
pionship time we'll be right


there with the best of them,"
said Ponto.
Assistant coach Jerry Poyn-
ton sees the compulsoies as the
key aspect of the meet. "Com
pulsories are where the meet is
won or lost, and if we were +o
go over 200 in them we Will be
very happy," he continued.
Iowa appears to be the major
obstacle to a Wolverine vicrory
this weekend. The Hawkeye. are
in the 200 point range and have
consistent performers in all
events. Mark Reifkind is the
man to watch for the gawks.
WISCONSIN has' a blooming
program, but they don't appear
to be a threat this weekend
while Ohio State has been hurt
by the loss of its top all-around-
performer Chuck Ewing, who
broke his leg during the Big Ten
Invitational, and sho ill cause
no problem.
This will be the last time the
tumblers will compete at home
this season.
The women's team, in its sec-
and year of varsity competition,
has hopes of finishing as high as
third in the Big Ten'Champion-
ships Saturday. Michigan State
is the heavy favorite to capture
the title, but the gymnasts will
battle with Minneso' and Wis-
consin for the runner up spots.
Both those schools nlave long es-
tablished women's gymnastic
Michigan Coach Anne Cot
nell is optimistic about the
chances of her squad, despite
losses to MSU and Indiana in
the last two weeks.
"The key tootir hopes is the
!lance beam." C nell said,
"We lost four points against In-
diana because all our perform-
erf fell off the beam, and they

"Either everyone hits their
beam routine or theg all fall
mff," Cornell stated. "it seems
that one fall ruins the con~centra-
ion of all the girls behind her
and causes an epidemic of
CORNELL MAY change the
order of the performers in an
effort to insure a sold showing
on the beam." I'll put my most
consistent workers on first in-
t'Qad of last to build the confi-
dence of those who follow them,"
qhe said. "Either tat or I'l
blindfold everyone until it's their
tern to go" Cornell joked.
Beth Carlson is one of the con-
sistent performers Cornell ex-
netts to hold the team together.
O>rlson will be competing as an
all-arounder for the first time.
The other all-arounders, Sara
Flom, Ginger Robey, andc Mia
Axon, are counted on to produce
the bulk of Michigan's scoring.
