Michigan's Gordie Bell breaks into the open against Michigan State last year only to be foiled
by MSU's Tom Hannon (45). Bell and the rest of the Wolverines are hoping that there will be\
plenty of daylight for Bell to run for today as the Blue take on the Spartans at East Lansing
at 3:10 p.m. The game promises to be a classic defensive battle with State's 'tom Standal
(65) and Kim Rowekamp (43) playing integral roles in the Spartan defense.

Ford remains neutral
President Ford refused yesterday to be drawn into predicting
the outcome of Saturday's big college football clash between
arch-rivals Michigan and Michigan State.
"They're boht my friends and I like my friends," said
Ford, a University of Michigan alumnus and football player
in the 1930s.
The response drew a round of good-natured laughter from
those attending Ford's news conference here.
The President tentatively had planned to attend the game in
East Lansing, but the plans were cancelled for security reasons.
World Series begins
The 1975 World Series features two of the hungriest teams in
baseball. The National League champion Cincinnati Reds haven't
won the World Championship since 1940. The American League's
Boston Red Sox last won 57 years ago, in 1918.
Only two Boston players are left from the American
League champions of 1967-left fielder Carl Yastrzemski and
third baseman Rico Petrocelli.
Bleacher seats and standing-room tickets went on sale yes-
terday. A crowd of 4,000 waited outside Fenway Park all night
to get the few remaining tickets for the World Series.
The Senate has taken sides in the World Series.
At the end of a 14-hour session Thursday night, Sen. Edward
M. Kennedy of Massachusetts asked for the adoption of a routine
resolution congratulating the Boston Red Sox and Cincinnati Reds
for winning their respective pennants.
Sen. John H. Glenn of Ohio offered no objection to the reso-
lution - but informed the Senate that he has placed bets on the
Reds to win in four straight.
Can't take a joke
Dr. Robert Ramsey says he thinks it's funny, but he's not
laughing about the misdemeanor charge he faces for jogging
around the track while the North Carolina State University foot-
ball team was practicing.I
Ramsay, a 35-year-old math professor at the school, was
arrested on orders of Coach Lou Holtz who was afraid Ram-I
- say might be a spy for University of Maryland football Coach
Jerry Claiborne. The teams will meet today.
Ramsay said he's an N.C. State fan and has never had any,
:onnection with Maryland. "I'm glad we have a good football
team, but there's a certain price I won't pay for that team," he

Michigan's water polo team had two
major factors going against them last
night in their game against the Ken-
tucky Wildcats. First, they had to play
without two starters, Rich Yawitz and
John Daly. Secondly, a new rule elimin-
ating foul outs, and therefore encour-
aging fouls, was used in last night's
game for the first time ever.
Michigan overcame these problems
however, to register a 12-9 victory in
a rough and tumble affair before a full
house of screaming Kentucky support-
'WE EXPECT a rough game every
time we come down here, and tonight's
game was no exception," remarked
Coach Stu Isaac after the game. The
new rule completely changed our stra-
opening goal in the first period. Ken-
tucky countered quickly with two goals,
but Downie's first goal tied it up.
The second period could just as well
have been called the Joe Bauer show,
as he scored four straight goals for
M i c h i g a n. Kentucky managed to
squeeze one tally in, and at halftime
Michigan led 6-3.
The third period was marred by al-
most constant fouling. With Michigan
players ejected for penalties time and
time again, Kentucky powered five
goals past Wolverine goalie Kevin Cul-
len. Downie kept the Wildcats from
pulling away though, with two straight
goals. The score was tied at 8-8 as Jhe
pHE FOURTH PERIOD belonged to
Downie and the Wolverines. Gordon
(against Indiana) was due to our fold-
ing when they got close. But tonight,
when Kentucky tied the game, we
pulled ourselves together and took it
away from them."
THE VICTORY boosts Michigan's
season record to 5-1. It was Kentucky's
first loss of the year after three wins.
Both teams are members of the Mid-
west Intercollegiate Water Polo Con-
ference, and are expected to be top
contenders for the title.
Today the Wolverines are in Bloom-
ington, Indiana, for a pair of games
against teams they have already seen
once this year.
In the afternoon, they take on the
University of Cincinnati, a team which
they beat 12-6 in Ann Arbor two weeks
