Blue host Big Ten

Several conference records
appear to be in jeopardy as the
Big Ten Outdoor Track and
Field Championship Meet comes
to town this weekend.
Tighlighting this exciting ac-
tivity which begins Friday at
3 p.m., is the apnenrance of
many former ch-mpions and
some former Olvmmnniss, inclid-
ing 1936 winner of four gold
medals, Jesse Owens.
Up until the los' minute it
appeared as if there would be
quite a duel for the 100 yard
dash. Marshall Dill of Michi-
gan State and Lprry Burton of
Purdue, both of whom have
run it in 9.2, would h,'e almost
surely broken the conference
mark of 9.4 Both are also world
class 220 men.
Tuesday it was announced
that Burton, who had run the
200 meters for the United
States Olympic team in 1972,
suffered a pulled hamstring.
That opens the door for Dill, the
NCAA 220 champion, to domi-

For a nominal fee of one dol-

others, you can see five basket-
ball games of two twenty min-
ute periods. The games will be
played under modified NBA
rules with some of the area's
top refs showing their stuff.
Today's play will feature the
opening games of the Open Di-
vision. Teems in this division
will be composed of NBA and
ABA players, former college
stars, and start street ballplay-

there is a strong possibility na-

it. Several teams are reported

to be sticking up on pro "ring-

interesting names there.

Four teams will be fielded --
from Downstate and Upstate
Michigan, and Fort Wayne and
South Bend, Indiana.
The downstate team will be
built around All Staters Terry
Tyler, Turono Anderson, and
Tony Jamison from Detroit, and
Tony Smith of Saginaw. Upstate
Michigan responds with Jeff
Tropf of Holt, John Long of
Romulus, Robert James of
Grand Rapids, Joel Thompson
of Flint, and Dave Baxter of
Detroit. Thompson and Baxter
have already signed with Michi-
gan, so this game will give
Wolverine fans an opportuni'yto
see what sort of talent judge
Johnny Orr really is.

RICO PETROCELLI, Boston Red Sox' thirdbase man, offers to hell Cleveland's John Lowenstein
to his feet after the latter slide safely into thirdbase. Petrocelli was not so cordial toward Indian
pitching, however, as his home run helped the Red Sox upend the Indians, 74, last night.
