TWO-MILERS QUALIFY:

Re laye rs

NCAA

bound

By ERNIE DUNBAR
For most track coaches in the
country, trying to qualify one
two-mile relay team for the
NCAA indoor championships is
a chore in itself.
But Michigan's coaches are in
the fortunate position of produc-'
ing two teams that could run in
the NCAA meet, if entry regula-
.tions didn't keep the limit to one
team per school.
THE WOLVERINES' bundle
of talented half-milers combined
t place two teams below the;
NCAA qualifying standard of
7:33.0, in last Saturday's Wol-
verine Invitational.

Jim Baumgartner, Greg Mey-
er, Steve Elliott, and Andy
Johnson raced to a 7:29.9 clock-
ing, ranking them fifth in the,
country.
Following in second place was
the team of Dave Furst, Tim
Thomas, Geg Thomas and Ken
Brown.
AFTER the meet, the ques-
tion persisted as to why the
sudden streak of success? Mich-
igan had been trying all sea-
son long to qualify a two-mile
relay team, and then managed
two qualifying teams in one
night.
"We had in the back of our

minds that we wanted to
fy," said Michigan track
Jack Harvey. "But we kn
could probably run wellE
to qualify withoutrtaperin
pletely off in our trainir
we will this week for t
Ten meet."
ASSISTANT coach Ror
hurst echoed Harvey's
mients. "It was a normal
ing off in training, bu
weren't peaked," Warhur
miented. "They didn't:
their maximums."
Johnson recorded the
of the eight half-miles,1
the oval in 1:51.9. He w
lowed in his relay by F
1:52.4. Baumgartner 's
and Meyer's 1:52.8.

enough "DAVE SAID he didn't exact-
g com- ly know how he felt," said War-
ng like: hurst, "so I switched him to the
he Big "B"steam 10 minutes before the
race. As it turned out, Dave felt
n War- pretty good and he passed
seti- iBaumgartner with 110 yards to
taper- go.",
t they Furst's performance was good
rst com enough for a 1:52.8 clocking and
run to combined with Tim Thomas'
1:52.9, Greg Thomas' 1:52.5 and
fastest Ken Brown's 1:54.0 for a 7:32.5
turning clocking.
vas fol- Before the race, Warhurst had
1:52.7 reminded his teams that they
1:52.7 were passing up a chance to run
in the national championships
)m the if they failed in their final at-
tempt for qualification.
"Those guys knew that if they
wanted to run at Cobo Hall (site
ai of the NCAA meet) and get a
chance to win a national cham-
IRLS pionship, they'd have to qua-
BOYS lify."

NCAA
By DAVE RENBARGER
So you're one of the many Michi-
gan basketball backers caught up in
this winter's cage whirlwind, eh?
If you harbor any plans to follow
the Wolverines on their upcoming jour-
ney along the NCAA's yellow-brick
road to that magical land of Atlanta,
the first stop will more than likely
be Bloomington, and tickets will pre-
sent no problem.
"There will be plenty of tic-
kets available for the game in
Bloomington," said Michigan's Tic-
ket Manager Al Renfrew.
The Blue cagers will play in that
game on Sunday, March 13 assuming
they hold onto the top spot in the Big
Ten. A victory over either Illinois or
Purdue this week will clinch the con-
ference crown.
"Tickets for that game will go on
sale Monday morning, March 7," said'
a confident Renfrew. The tickets will
be priced at $6 and $5, and Renfrew
promises that there will be no short-

age.
"Everybody who wants a ticket
will be able to get one," with a four
ticket maximum per customer, he
said. Only 9,000 tickets have been
sold so far in Indiana's 17,357 ca-
pacity Assembly Hall.
Looking ahead to the Mideast Re-
gionals semi-finals and finals, slated
for March 17 and 19, in Lexington, the
ticket situation is bleak at best.
The games will be played in cavern-
ous Rupp Arena, which just opened
this year and boasts the largest seat-
ing capacity in the NCAA-22,828. ,
According to NCAA ticket policy,
however, each participating school
is allotted a minimum of 750 tic-
kets regardless of the size of the
arena.
"The representative at each site is
responsible for the distribution of tic-
kets," said an NCAA spokesperson
yesterday. "We just set a minimum
and the rest is up to the host school."
"Ticket for that one will be

tough," noted Renfrew. "We'll han-
dIe it just as we did last year-first
come-first serve, and one ticket
per customer.
"it would be' impossible to differen-
tiate between students, faculty and
outsiders in this case," said the ticket
manager in explanation of the proce-
dure. "In the first place, there isn't
enough time, and besides, they're all
basketball fans just the same."
The tickets for the four-fame Lex-
ington series are priced at $14, good
for both the Thursday and Saturday
games.
Meanwhile the dates for the NCAA
finals in Atlanta are March 26 and
March- 28. Each participating team
gets 1,000 tickets, and the remaining
seats in the 15,389 capacity Onmi have
been sold out for almost a year.
If the Wolverines are one of final
four, the tickets, priced at $28 and
good for four games, will be passed
out on a similar, first come, first serve
basis.

Haryey felt that Johnson's an-
chor leg was the most pleasant
surprise of the relay.
"I THOUGHT Andy would run
well, but running all by himself
for the last part of the race, he
really surprised me," Harvey
commented.
JOHNSON'S anchor leg se-
cured the qualification for the
Wolverines and put them in a
position of improving on last
year's second place finish.

~~~~~SWHY IS G~rD TIFLE
Fellow Beer Persons,
Life is full of unanswered questions such as: Is there intelligent life
elsewhere in the universe? And if so, do they wear socks?
In beer, however, there are no unanswered questions. Because there
is only one word for beer, and you know it.
Schlitz.
Therefore, as your Dean of Beer, I suggest you research
the essential rightness of the word for yourself at your next
social function. Or even your next antisocial function.
And please note: The recommended source
material for locating the word can be- found in any
phone booth. In other words, look in the Yellow
Pages. Under "Beer:'

TENNESSEE won the first
meeting between the two teams,
71-67, in overtime on Kentucky's
home court. - Mears feels his
team can also win the rematch
"if we don't let Kentucky play
their "karate' defense.
"We're a finesse team," ex-
plained Mears. "We just don't
have the brute strength Ken-
tucky has, so we have to make
them play our game."
The situation in the confer-
ence is uncertain at the mo-
ment:
* Should Kentucky beat Missis-
sippi State tonight and Tennes-
see Saturday, Kentucky would
be league champ.
® Should Tennessee beat Ken-
tucky. the Vols would win the
conference outright on the
strength of a 2-0 record against
Kentucky. -
* Should Kentucky defeat Ten-
nessee, yet both teams finish
with the same conference rec-
ord, a coin flin would determine
the league champ.
See how confusing it is?
A POSSIBILTTY exists thMa
miManien could play the SEC
winner in the NCAA Regional fi
npls at Lexington.

clined to discuss a Dossible

Your last 2 years
at UofM
can be your
first 2 years

of management.
Why wait until y o u r e out of
college to get practical manage-
ment training? Army ROTC is a
possibility for anyone having two
years of undergraduate or graduate
work remaining. And leads you to
an Army officer's commission upon
graduation. -
New Army o f f icers take on
instant leadership responsibility.
They have to manage people and
handle money and equipment. They
have to make more important plan-
ning decisions t h a n most young
executives.
So whet. Army ROTC students
r e e e i v e their undergraduate or
graduate degree, they enter active
or reserve duty fully prepared for
these management challenges.
If you'd like to be getting man-
agement experience after college,
while others are getting manage-
ment training, apply for the Army
ROTC 2-year program by April 1.
