MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin
broke away from a half-time
tie behind James Gregory, then
held on for a 76-74 upset victory
over Purdue that dealt the Boil-
ermakers' Big Ten basketball
title hopes a severe jolt.
Gregory finished with 17 points
for the last-place Badgers 3-9,1
who held Purdue to a 33-33 half-
time tie, then opened up a 10-
point margin midway through
the second period. Time ran out
on a late Purdue rally.
Purdue guard Jerry Sichting
sank two free throws to make
M' na ers
it 74-68 seconds later, then
teammate Walter (Jordan in-
tercepted Wisconsin's inbounds
pass and scored to make it
But Jimmy Smith sank two
clutch free throws with 15 sec-
onds left for a 76-70 lead, suffi-
cient to survive late baskets by
Jordan and Parker.
The loss dropped the Boiler-
makers' conference record to
8-3, while first-place Micnigan
is '11-1 and second-place Minne-
sota is 8-2.

McHale 23 and Williams 21 be-

The victory moved Minnesota
ahead of Purdue in the Big Ten
standings behind leading Michi-
Ohio State, now 2-8 and 7-12,
suffered its worst defeat of the
season and its fifth successive
Minnesota, using a trio )f 6-10
giants much of the first half,
blew into a 42-32 halftime lead
and was never headed there-
The Gophers had a hot stretch
when they put in 26 points in a
seven-minute span to Ohio
State's six. That ran the margin
to 89-54 with 3:02 to play.
Ohio State now has lost all
five of its home games in the
Big Ten this season under rookie
coach Eldon Miller.

Tech Hifi is the safest place to
buy stereo because we guarantee your
satisfaction, in writing.
- We will give you an entire week
at home with your new equipment to

pected. If you're not totally pleased,
you can bring it back for a full refund.
We'll guarantee that you'll be
satisfied with the price you pay at
Tech Hifi. Within 30 days, if any store
offering similar services advertises a
lower price for the same components,
we'll refund the difference (we're
pretty confident of our low prices).
And our return policy also pro-
tects you against defects. If anything
goes wrong with any component with-
in 60 days, we'll. either repair it for
free in three working days or give you
a new unit.
All of this we put in writing,
right onyour sales slip.
So why risk buying stereo some-
One reason we're so willing to
guarantee your satisfaction at Tech
Hifi, is because we're so confident
about the music systems we sell.
KLH, and Garrard for example. It'll
play your favorite music with truly
satisfying accuracy. The Advent 300
stereo receiver features an advanced
phono preamp section that many
audiophiles feel is worth the price of
the entire receiver! You'll enjoy
exceptional FM performance, too.
Efficient KLH 101 loudspeakers
translate the fine signal provided by
the Advent receiver into clean, wide-
range sound. And you'll appreciate
the convenience of Garrard's hand-
some 440M automatic turntable.
JuuAnk jmk L U 19:
Probably not. All things considered you do
what you do pretty doggone well. After all, no one
has taken your job. And you're eating regularly.
But have you ever considered what doing your
job just a little better might mean?
Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves its costing us now for repairsand inefficiency.
Point two..By taking more pride in our work
we'll more than likely see America regaining its
strength in the competitive world trade arena. When
the balance of payments swings our way again we'll
all be betteroff economically.
So you see-the only person who can really
do what you do any better is-you.
