IJHEY SAY that Johnny Orr doesn't really need the scare like
Holy Cross gave Michigan. He's under enough pressure as it
is, keeping that number one status and all, and when an unher-
alded team like Holy Cross comes along and is within two points
with 5 minutes to go - 'well, that just turns his hair gray and
makes it fall out.
Orr just doesn't have that much hair to spare.
This season, the casual, easy going Orr was turned into
a worrisome nail-biter. The pressure was getting so bad, in
fact, rumors of retirement spread.
Orr didn't exactly kill that rumor at the Saturday night press
conference before the game. "I've got high blood pressure. I've:
got stomach troubles. I've got hemorrhoids," Orr said. "Hell,
I've got everything. If we win the championship, and if I was
offered a good job, I'd seriously consider not coming back next
So the retirement rumor was substantiated and papers all
around started repeating howl Orr might retire if the Wolverines
went all the way this year.
"I'm not going to retire at all," is what Orr really feels,
though. "I said I'd only retire if I was offered a better job,
and it would have to be quite a job to be better than being
a basketball coach. They'd have to pay me half a million
"I don't make much money here, but there are a lot of good
people here and I like it. I"m not going anywhere," Orr said.
And as for the pressure, Orr said, "it's Iot better being
number one than number six. There's more pressure on you
when you lose!t
"Some people say," Orr continued, "that if we don't win it all
our season will have been a failure. Could you ever call a season
as successful as ours a failure?",
To niany Michigan fans, it would be a disappointment if
Michigan did not take it all for a change. The fans are tired
of always being the bridesmaid.
During the first 35 minutes of Sunday's NCAA opening round






game, there were some serious questions as to whether or not
Michigan was even going to advance.
Michigan needed a large dose of Rickey Green, who scored
a career high 35 points while dishing out another nine assists, a
few ounces of Johnny Rob rebounds in the second half, and Dave
Baxter as a substitute ingredient to come in when Michigan was
ready to pull it out.
"Rickey surprised me," Orr said, "to come back and shoot
and move like he did (after his hip injury at Illinois). That's a
sign of a great basketball player."
Even Green admitted that it was probably the greatest
game of his life.

Tickets tough to get
All of Michigan's 750 alloted tickets for the NCAA Mid-
east Regional in Lexington, Ky were sold yesterday.
The ticket ,office may receive additional $14 tickets to-
day. "We're trying to get a couple of hundred more tic-
kets," said ticket manager Al Renfrew, "But I don't know
if we will."
Renfrew noted that because neither Tennessee
(Southeast Conference champ) nor Kentucky will par-
ticipate in this regional, tickets should be available in
Should the Wolverines win the regional they would ad-
vance to the NCAA finals in Atlanta. "Tickets for Atlanta
will be really tight," said Renfrew.
Michigan would receive 1,000 $28 tickets which will be
sold on a first come first serve basis beginning at 8:00
a.m. Monday, March 21.
Hockey tickets are also hard to come by. The Wolver-
ines play for the WCHA championship Wednesday and
Thursday in Madison. Michigan received but 70 tickets for
this series, most of which will go to parents of the players.
Others interested should call the ticket office (764-0247)
where Renfrew promised to help in obtaining the $4 a game

Michigan did need the super effort by Green.(16-20 from the
field) to offset a great effort by Holy Cross. You see, Holy Cross
was a good, well-coached team.
"We're not going to blow out anybody anymore," Frieder
said. "It's hard for some to imagine, but that's a good basket-
ball team (Holy Cross) and they played hard. We expected them
to be very tough. Many people really didn't."
It came down to a fine performance by Baxter coming off the'
bench to secure the win for Michigan. After the score was 72-70,
a Baxter assist followed by three Baxter buckets gave Michigan
the ten point lead it needed to cruise the rest of the game with.
"When we came into the game," said Holy Cross coach
George Blaney," we felt Baxter may have been the best guard
Michigan had." And now? "Well, Rickey Green IS. pretty
It was Baxter, however, that provided Michigan with the
final spurt that brought it over the top. And, if Michigan intends
to go to the Omni, it needs a sparkplug - much like Staton was
last year.
And Dave Baxter is ready . . especially for the upcoming
Detroit game.
"I want Detroit," Baxter, from Detroit Lutheran West, con-
tinued. "BAXTER wants Detroit! Dick Vitale (U-D's head coach)!
has been talking about Michigan. and how bad he wants us. We'll
see Thursday. You . . be there."
I will. Aloha.

ATTENTION: Until further
notice, the new colors of the
Michigan hockey team will be;
blazing Yellow and Red.
Red as in red hot, winners of
their last 12, straight, blazing
like a team on fire into the
WCHA finals against Wisconsin
in Madison tomorrow and Thurs-
day nights.
But, to get there, the Wolver-
ines needed a little outside as-
sistance, and got it.
THE REGULAR season ended
on a high note with a sweep of;
Michigan State, 6-3 here end 5-2
last Saturday night in East Lan-
sing. 'The double defeats dropped
the Spartans right out of the
WCHA playoffs.
In the game at State, Michi-
gan defenseman Greg Natale
was hit hard into the boards by,
MSU's Russ Welch with only 17
seconds remaining in the game.
The blow broke Natale's collar-
bone, prematurely ending the
stellar senior's season.;
In the first round of the play-'
offs, the Wolverines drew sixth
place Michigan Tech, the one
team Michigan Coach Dan Far-'
rell didn't want to meet.
TECH WON three of five
games with Michigan during the
regular season and in the Great
Lakes Tournament. Both teams
scored 25 goals in those five
But this time Michigan took'
the lead early each night and
hung on for hard fought 6-4, 5-2
At first, "it appeared that the

Wolverines would be in South
Bend to battle Notre Dame in
the semi-finals. Notre Dame
beat its first round opponent,
Minnesota, 5-1, the first night.
BUT, IN A stunning reversal,
the Gophers blasted the Irish,
9-2, to advance to the semi-finals
at Wisconsin.
Michigan, with the second best
record of the remaining teams,
was awarded the final home
spot against Denver.
In the regular season, Michi-
gan recorded its first four-game
sweep of Denver in hockey his-
tory., Pioneer Coach Murray
Armstrong warned that the Wol-
verines were the one team that
he didn't want to face in the

MICHIGAN enjoyed winning
against Denver so much that it
beat the Pioneers 6-4 last Satur-
day night and followed up wltfl
an 11-4 shellacking much to the
delight of the crowd.
The Badgers got to the finals
by beating Colorado College 3-1,
3-1, and Minnesota 9-5, 8-3, all
games at Madison.r
SLAP SHOTS: Winning 12
straight in one season ties a
Michigan record and winning 26
games in a season sets a Michi-
gan record, the Wolverines are
now 26-14 for the year . .. Kris
Manery scored the hat trick Sun-
day vs. Denver, his third of the

As your Dean of Beer, it is my scholarly
opinion that just knowing the one word for
beer is not enough. You must also know the
reasons why. Because only then will I,
Siclinda Steinfuller, be satisfied that you have
graduated from Remedial Beer Drinking.
Q: 1. The best water for beer comes from:
a) Big Duck Mountain.
b) Underground from Tijuana.
c) A small store in Macon, Ga.
d) None of the above
A: (d) No matter what you hear about
"naturally pure" waters, virtually all
brewers filter and further purify their
water. But Schlitz doesn't stop there. They
filter their water and then filter it again.
So when they're through, it's purer than
the purest springwater.
Q: 2. Klages and Firibeck III are:
a) Composers of famous beer drinking
songs like "I Left My Shoes in Heidelberg:'
b) Owners of the world's largest unknown
c) Serving time in Sonoma, Calif., for
impersonating Arnold the Wonder Seal.
d) More expensive barleys.
A: (d) Schlitz blends Klages and Firlbeck III
barleys with the standard variety most
brewers use because they believe it gives
their beer superior flavor.

Q: 3.

Hops are notorious for:
Their lack of intelligence.
Always getting to work late.
Losing their keys.
Being difficult to keep fresh.

A: (d) The freshest hops make the best beer.
That's why Schlitz vacuum-packs and
refrigerates their hops. So they're as fresh
at brewing time as they are at harvest time
Q: 4. The best adjunct to beer is:
a) Rice.
b) Corn.
c) Either rice or corn.
d) What's an adjunct?
A: (c) Every American brewer uses rice or
corn to lighten the flavor of their beer.
This is called an adjunct. But Schlitz
knows how to use either grain inter-
changeably. So they're never at the mercy
of an unfavorable crop. And neither is the
taste of their beer.

Q: 5. The biggest misconception about yeast
) Carrying some in your pocket is good
b) It is good for hernias.
c) It was responsible for the fall of the
Roman Empire.
d) To ferment beer, all you have to do is
drop it in the vat.
A: (d) To make beer taste right consistently,
Schlitz believes the yeast has to be evenly
distributed during fermentation. That's
why Schlitz gently stirs in their yeast. It's
part of their Balanced Fermentation
process. And they're the only American
brewer who does it.
Q: 6. Chill-Lagering is:
a) A popular German country and western
b) A Scandinavian winter sport played
without clothes.
c) A new ethnic TV comedy about the
owner of an ice cube factory.
d) The right way to age beer.
A: (d) When Schlitz ages beer, they age it
cold-very cold--down to 29.5 degrees.
It's called Chill-Lagering. And it's what
makes Schlitz crisp, clean and bright.
