ELEVEN YEARS AGO, as a seven-year-
old athletic native Detroiter, spring
and Topp's baseball cards escalated my
love of baseball and particularly the
The Tigers of 1959 were a fascinating
conglomeration of castoffs, nondescripts,
incompetents, and a few genuine stars.
The infield at Brigg's Stadium had the
saddest corps of occupants in any park
in the American League. First base was
shared by two non-Hall-of-Famers, Steve
Bilko and Larry "Bobo" Osborn. Both
were as exceptional a fielder as Mary
Throneberry, and occassionally could hit
as well as the now infamous original Met.
The pivot man for those never-material-
ized double-plays was Frank Bolling, who
actually blossomed later as a Milwaukee

was "walking" Eddie Yost. Although a
.270 hitter, Yost nevertheless was peren-
nially among the leaders at drawing free
passes and retired fifth in walks on the
all-time major-league list.
Shortstop was played by a scrappy
little guy who always competed with Nel-
lie Fox for the biggest wad of chewing
tobacco in the left cheek during a reg-
ulation game. Rocky Bridges was his
name and it was listed on his baseball
card that he hit .300 for Podunk in 1949.

Last was, trivia-lovers, Reno Bertoia,
utility-man extraordinaire. Reno never
did make the starting line-up (demon-
strating his ability).
Considering the Tigers were last at the
end of April (the hated Yankees were
miraculously seventh in the pre-expan-
sion AL) and finished fourth (the Yank-
ees third), it would seem that somewhere

THE SOLUTION was the outfield. On

a doubleheader to.escape the cellar, left-
fielder Charley "Paw Paw" Maxwell hit
four consecutive home runs-one on his
last at-bat in the first game and the
other three on his next three trips to
the plate. Called the "Sunday Slugger"
for his sabbath slugfest, Charley led the
team with 31 round-trippers.
Center-fielder Harvey Kuenn placed
second to Bridges in tobacco chewing, but
led the American League in batting with
a .353 average. Second in the Junior Cir-
cuit with a .327 mark was 24-year-old
right-fielder Al Kaline. Reserve specialist
for this trio was, again trivia lovers, Neil
Behind the plate, or at least noted for
blocking it, crouched Lou Berberet. Lou
won adoration when, in a game televised
from Cleveland, he hit a 3-run blast,
threw out Vic Power attempting to steal
second, and tagged out Rocky Colavito
who was barreling into home.
JIM BUNNING, Frank Lary, and Don
Mossi won 17 games apiece and lost 38
between them. They were supported by
guys like Hank Aguire and Ray Narleski.
The man who managed the Tigers
into last place did not rank with Hughie
Jennings or even Bucky Harris. And h
was succeeded by the Casey Stengel of the
Second Division-Jimmy Dykes. He never
did get Detroit out of last place as Dykes
took over on the day the Bengals climbed
out of the basement. His name? Bill Nor-

A special Senate Assembly committee will
present a proposal to Assembly at its Monday
meeting which would allow students time off next
fall to engage in political activities during the
upcoming political campaigns and elections.
The committee's report also calls for the es-
tablishment of a political information center,
special courses, lectures or seminars dealing with
various aspects of electoral politics and for pro-
fessors to be encouraged to make allowances for
those wishing to take part in campaigns or other
The committee's plan for calendar revision
would cancel classes on five days, September 30,
October 1 and 2 and November 1 and 2. The first
period coincides with the last days of the state
voter registration period. The other two are Elec-
tion Day and the day before.
All five days off would be compensated for by
holding classes on Labor Day, Friday and Satur-
day after Thanksgiving and December 10 and 11,
the first two of four presently scheduled study
Although not all members of the student-
faculty committee were in favor of calendar re-
vision itself, there was general agreement that
this plan was "optimal." Psychology Prof. Sylvan
Kornblum, the main author of the plan, asserted
that it did not lengthen the calendar, but only
switched days off which already existed.
Opposing calendar revisions this fall, educa-
tion Prof. 'Claude Eggertsen said, "Maybe we
should plan days off in future elections, but I
can't back it now." He expressed the fear that
passing something now when much of the faculty
and most of the students are gone could result
in an adverse reaction in the fall.
"I can't see that many people getting that
terribly upset over -what are really relatively
minor changes," Kornblumn said. However, Stu-
art Gannes, '70, replied that some students might
not see the loss of their Thanksgiving vacation
and half their study days as minor, and would
reject the idea.
Kornblum noted, however, that a full student
input could not be obtained until fall, when it
would be too late to make any calendar changes.
Because of the time problem, the committee
decided to go ahead "in view of the wide interest
that students and faculty across the nation have
expressed in having the opportunity to partici-
pate in the November elections."
If passed by Assembly Monday, the calendar
revision would have to go to the Regents for
approval. The proposal for an information cen-
ter where students could find out about candi-

Seeking to ally themselves
with students protesting the
Indochinese war, racism, and
environmental decay, over half
of the medical school's grad-
uating class came to their com-
mencement last night wearing
arm bands and carrying a state-
ment expressing their dissent.
The statement was read by
Newton Osborne, president of
the graduating class, to the
audience of 1500 which gathered
in Hill Aud.
It was endorsed later by the
main speaker, John Knowles,
whose candidacy for the nation's
top health post sparked a con-
troversy within the Nixon ad-
ministration last year.-
The statement cited "the
many millions of our fellow
Americans (who) are living at
starvation levels - their lives
shortened and the brains of
their children stunted.
"Our environment is exploited
and polluted instead of protect-
ed," the statement. continued.
"Racism continues to be an in-
tegral part of American society."
"And yet," the statement add-
ed, "the major part of our na-
tional resources continues to be
spent on war, wasting the pre-
cious lives of our American
brothers in pursuit of our mean-
ingles political goals."
Knowles, who is currently the
general director of the Mas-
sachusetts General Hospital, in
Boston, said he agreed with the
statement, but expressed confi-
dence that "the crises of the
seventies" will be solved.
"We have survived (during
other crisis periods) and will do
so again," he said.
Knowles warned of the "haz-
ards of degeneration into a state
of fascism," citing the violent
demonstrations which have oc-
curred on college campuses.
"The only thing more fascistic
than the far right is the far left,
and they are virtually indis-
tinguishable as far as I'm con-
cerned," he said.
102 of the 189 medical school
graduates wore green and red
armbands embroidered with the

mencement exercises, as has
taken place at several major
universities during the last two
"What's important is that its
a graduation, of medical stu-
dents, who are generaly known
for their conservatism," said Ed-
win Carlson, '70Med, one of the
organizers of the protest.
The statement called upon the
parents and relatives in the
audience to "join us" in the stu-
dents efforts to secure social,
political, and economic reforms.
"By working together, we just
might succeed," the statement
In his address, Knowles said
that the major problems of the
seventies were the redistribution
and sharing of power, the easing
of racial conflict, and the secur-
ing of human dignity for all
He praised "the vast majority
of students who are struggling
to make change in peaceful evo-
lution, not bloody revolution,"
"They represent a major
