M netters still alive in AIAW's
While the rest of the Michigan
women's tennis team is home, through
with collegiate competition for this
year, the beat goes on for Kathy Karzen
and Barb Fischley.
Theodora Shepherd's charges bowed
out of the team segment of the AIAW
national tournament in Iowa City last
week, with losses to Yale, 6-3, and
California at Santa Barbara, 9-0.
Karzen and Fischley accounted for
two of the Wolverines' three points,
with Karzen- teaming with Fischley in
the doubles, then garnering a win at her
number one singles spot as well. The
doubles tandem of Lisa Wood and Ann
Kercher nabbed the Blue netters' third
points against the Bulldogs.
Meanwhile, Karzen is still alive in the
individual competition with her partner
Fischley. After losing their first match,
dropping them into the consolation
bracket, the two can still finish as high
Karzen began the individual tourney
on a sour note, dropping a 6-2, 6-2
decision to Wendy Barlow of Brigham.
She then bounced back, however, with a
6-2, 6-1 win over her next opponent, Bet-
sy Hyber of Indiana, keeping alive her
hopes for a ninth place finish.
Karzen then finished off Nancy
Fudenburg of Mississippi 6-1, 7-5, but
lost to Ann Layman of the University of
New Mexico, 6-1, 6-2 to garner second
place in the individual consolation
MONTREAL - The National Hockey
League's rules committee yesterday
voted against the implementation of an
overtime period to decide tie games.
Also voted down was a proposal to
assess a 10-minute misconduct penalty
to any player on the ice who takes off
his gloves while another fight is going
The only measure approved by the
rules committee was one which
assessed an automatic minor bench
penalty to a team if its players leave the
bench to congratulate a goal scorer. Of-
ten last season in playoff games, the en-
tire team hopped over the boards to
celebrate with the scorercausing what
the committee felt was a needless delay
in the resumption of play.
The measure, however, must be ap-
proved by the board of governors
before it will be added to the rule books.
KANSAS CITY, Mo-Hal McRae,
Kansas City's slump-ridden designated
hitter, was placed on the disabled list
yesterday, five days after he removed
himself from the lineup.
McRae, who underwent shoulder
surgery Dec. 11, is hitting only .241 af-
ter averaging .302 the past four
He was put on the disabled list retroac-
tive to Sunday, and can be activated af-
ter June 25.
McRae said Sunday he had relayed
word to Manager Whitey Herzog
through trainer Mickey Cobb that he no
longer wanted to play with the shoulder
"I finally came to the conclusion it
wasn't going to work-not the way it is
now," he said. He has been reluctant to
talk about his troubles this season. -AP

BOWMAN admitted a possibility
remained that he would coach the club
next season, while naming as other
candidates for the job interim Coach
Bill Inglis and Roger Neilson, coach of
the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Bowman added that the assistant
general manager's position had been
offered to John Anderson, who had
taken that spot last Dec. 4 when Punch
Imlach was fired as general manager
and Marcel Pronovost was replaced by
Inglis as coach.
Openly miffed over being ignored for
the Canadien's general managership
when Sam Pollock retired last fall,
Bowman invoked an option in his con-
tract with the team that permitted him
to listen to offers from other clubs.
Monday was the deadline for the an-
nouncement of his decision.
