IN THE BIG TEN

Blue gymnasts defend

title

By SCOTT LEWIS
Hoping to culminate another
successful season in convincing
style, Michigan's gymnastics
team travels to East Lansing
this weekend to defend their
title in the Big Ten Champion-
ships.
All results from the dual
meet portion of the schedule
will be forgotten, and a team
or individual's success depends
solely on Friday and Saturday's
performances.-
With this in mind, the Blue
tumblers have been practic-
ing intensely all week, hop-
ing that their peak perform-
ances will come this weekend.

"The guy s have been work-
ing hard toward this weekend,
and are anxious to get going,"
said Michigan coach Newt Lok-
en. Now in his 29th year as
head coach, Loken has guided
the Wolverines to a 9-1 dual
meet season. The only loss has
come at the hands of top-rank-
ed Indiana State.
Michigan's hopes of sweeping
past all the opposition without
encountering much trouble
similar to last year's trouncing,
was severely thwarted as two
of the top performers encoun-
tered serious injuries.
Last year's Big Ten all-
around champion, Harley Dan-
ner, reinjured his knee during

Michigan's last dual meet of the
season on March 6th, and he
will be unable to perform. The
injury had kept him out of some
early-season contests, but he
seemed to be performing one-:
hundred per cent by the latter
portion of the season.
"He will be sorely missed,"
said Loken. "It will be ex-
tremely difficulttto replace the
points that Harley earned in
last year'sdmeet,rbut every-
Ibody's fired up for the meet
and we'll just have to count on
other people in Harley's
events."

Replacing Danner in the all-
around will be Richard Bigras.
Co-captain Pierre Leclerc
pulled a groin muscle in prac-
tice Monday morning, but he
should perform this weekend
although he will be hampered
on the floor exercise.
Nevertheless, the Wolverines
have four conference champion
specialists returning from last
year's Big Ten meet, and arej
heavy favorites to repeat as
champions.
Chuck Stillerman (floor exer-
cise), Bigras (vaulting), Leclerc
(parallel bars), and Bob Dar-
den (high bar) will provide
Michigan with substantial
strength in East Lansing.
Michigan is very strong in ev-
ery event, and it's not incon-
ceivable that they could sweep
the top three spots in any one
of them.

Mike Tyson and Lynn McGlothen. Le Flore recovered in time to send the ball home where

When someone drinks too
much and then drives, it's the
silence that kills. Your silence.
It kills your friends, your
relatives, and peopleryou don't even
know. But they're all people you
could save.
If you knew what to say,
maybe you'd be less quiet. Maybe
fewer people would die.
What you should say is, "I'll
drive you home." Or, "Let me call a
cab." Or, "Sleep on my couch
tonight."

Don't hesitate because your
friend may have been drinking only
beer. Beer and wine can be just as
intoxicating as mixed drinks.
And don't think that black
coffee will make him sober. Black
coffee never made anyone sober.
Maybe it would keep him awake
long enough to have an accident.
But that's about all.
The best way to prevent a
drunk from becoming a dead drunk
is to stop him from driving.
Speak up. Don't let silence
be the last sound he hears.
