PRESIDENT GERALD FORD returned to dine at the Michigan football training table
after a forty-two year absence yesterday during his visit in Ann Arbor to kick off his
presidential campaign. Ford was a regular for dinner in 1934 -as captain and most valu-
able player of '34 Wolverines. Sitting next to the President is Coach Bo Schembechler,
who entertained Mr. Ford earlier as he paid a short visit to practice yesterday after-
noon.

By PAUL CAMPBELL
With memories of the Sum-
mer Olympics only two months
old, we who consider ourselves
sports fans would feel safe in
saying that we could recognize
and place most of the names of
the athletes who made their
marks in Montreal.
ALL OF US could expound at
length on the divine gyrations
of Nadia Comaneci or the in-
stant excitement created by
Sugar Ray Leonard. Most of us
could recognize the prodigous
stomach of Vasily Alexeyev,
Dwight Stones' Mickey Mouse'
T-shirt, or the jubilant face of
victorious decathlete, Bruce Jen-
ner.
Certainly we all remember
that if you bought a whopper,
you got a Nieman, or that Mc-
Donald's s a l u t e s America's
youth. And our collective chest
would swell with pride as we
confidently spoke of the feats of
Lasse Viren, Alberto Juanto-
rena, John Naber and a host of
others.
But how many of us remem-
ber Phil Boggs?
AS WE SIT there stroking our,
beards and scratching our

Boggs reached the pinnacle of
his sport this summer when he

Phil lives in Ann Arbor ("You're
kidding") and attends the Uni-
versity of Michigan Law School
("No way!").
"I don't really mind the la-k
of recognition," laughed Boes
after his daily workout at Matt

I always was best at swimming
and diving. I had two brothers
who swam, and besides, I was
always small (today he stands

me that I couldn't so too tar in
sports like baseball or football.".
