Carolyn King, the lanky 12-year-old cen-
terfielder from Ypsilanti, made her official
Little League debut last night as a cheer-
ing-and booing--crowd looked on.
Wearing the Orioles' No. 9 uniform, her
ltng bland hair tied in pigtails with blue
r i b b ot s, she straddled the plate as
cameras. c 1 i c k e d fitriously and boys
"SHE STANDS like a girl," said one
young baseball player from another league
"that doesn't have any girls and better
not get any."
After she walkedl to first base, her
brother Gregg, 10, and a Little Leaguer
himself, complatined that "those last two
balls sure looked like strikes" to him.
"These kids are here to win a ballgame,
not to be celebrities," said one disgrtmtled
bystander. "There are more press people
here than players They should have call-
ed the game when it first got overcast
and waited fin' all the excitement to die
S. B. STANTON, the Little League dis-
trict administrator from Jackson w )o has
called Carolyn's L ittle League staIns
"against the whmle ptrpose of the pr-
gram," refused to comment about Ypsi-
lanti's threatened disqualificattion from the
Little League.
"Whe" we reach a decision, it "ill be
the Little League who decides, not the
news media," lie said.
There did seem to be a disproportio'ate
number of press representatives watchitg
from the sidelines. In the bottom half of
the fourth inning a Yankee fouled a line
drive into Doris Biscoe, Channel 7 Action
News reporter.
THE BALL connected with her head and
she, very gracefully, slumped into the
arms of the newsman standing beside er.
Then she fluttered her eyelashes and went
into shock.
BUT THEN Carolyn was back in cen-
terfield, striking various authentic-looking
baseball poses: hands on knees, head
hunched forward waiting for the pitch. She
picked up a line drive the shortstop missed
and hurled it off to second base-but the
runner was safe.
Carolyn went to bat again in the top of
the sixth inning when the score was 15-0
and struck out. The game ended like that,
the score 15-0 in favor of the Yankees.
She was as good as the boys but they
weren't anything to brag about.
THEN THE TV cameramen swarmed
around her while she giggled and blushed
and looked very tired. Her words were
all but drowned out because of the hordes
of kids surrounding her, trying to be on
"I bet there'll be five people watch-
ing the game next week," said the bay
from the league without girls. Then he
spit in the sand and walked away.

-SGC ballots uncounted

Two weeks have passed since ' Student
Government Council held the second of
two trouble-plagued all-campus elections.
The winter term has ended, the flowers
have come out, the Little League has re-
instated its famed female fielder.
But don't ask who won the SGC election.
The second SGC election, that is. Council

vote after spending about $10,000 to put it

body defrauded between 300 and 1500
To guard against fraud in this second
election, SGC President Bill Jacobs and
former Election Director Ken Newbury
devised a new election procedure which
they termed "flawless." However, the
procedure has not yet produced any re-
Why? According to Velna Knapp, Rack-
ham's part-time SGC vote tabulation boss
and full-time computer wizard, the vote
count has been held up by the massive
flow of exams to be graded in the same
computer that adds up the votes.
She says the count probably won't get
under way until Monday at the earliest.
The unprecedented "re-run" election
was held under the watchful eye of uni-
formed Sanford security guards in Water-
man Gym during the April 23-27 pre-
registration period, with an extra voting

Jacobs cancelled the last scheduled
Council meeting and officially stated that
he was placing the new election under the
security guards' "total" jurisdiction with'
out approval from SGC.
Jacobs then apparently empowered con-
troversial former SGC Treasurer David

Schaper to oversee the second voting.
Schaper denies that he is acting in a
capacity very similar to that of SGC
election director (a post vacated by a
disheartened Ken Newbury several weeks
ago), but admits that he is "more or less
in charge."
He maintained Wednesday that his ac-
tivities are "part of my job" as "executive
assistant to the president for financial

The financial affairs post was created
by a personal order from Jacobs at the
final SGC meeting in April. Earlier, SGC
had voted to suspend its own chief capa-
city as a funding organization until its
mangled financial books could be cleared.
Schaper refused Wednesday to explain
how the new election process could be
seen as "tart of his job" as financial

Residency case leaves

In the wake of Judge William
Ager's monumental decision to strike
down the University's key require-
ment for granting residency to out of
state students, a good deal of am-
biguity remains as to what specific
effects the ruling will have,
The following information is an at-
tempt to deal with some of the ques-
tions raised by Ager's opinion.
* The exact criteria for granting
residency are now quite unclear. The
judge ruled that Ann Arbor voter
registration was not proof' of resi-
dency by itself, saying that the in-
tent of the student to remain in the
state after graduation should be the
principal consideration for granting
residency. However intent is diffi-
