This time Jerry West hit a
long shot and Happy Hairston
from closer in and the Lakers
surged out again.
New York Coach Red Holzman
started reserve center Nate Bow-
man, replaced him with Bill Hos-
ket and then went to the busy-bee
strategy of moving Dave DeBus-
schere from forward to center.
That was the strategy which
proved effective when Reed first
was injured. But it worked with
only limited effectiveness this
time.
Chamberlain scored 24 points in!
a 71-51 first half and added 17 in
the third quarter and four in the
final session before leaving the
game with 2:21 remaining. j
Despite 22 turnover by thel
Lakers to 16 for the visitors,
Chamberlain's output proved far
too much for the Knicks, who hope
Reed will be sufficiently recovered
to go against Wilt in the cham-
pionship finale.

The )1d iimaestro returns
Venerable rolf great Ben logan, whio hung up his spikes two years
ago because of leg- problems, has put them on again for this week-
end's Champions International Championship. Although he still
has a limp, 1ogan has worked hard to get into shape.

AUSTIN, Tex. (P)-A hint that
the University of Texas is consid-
ering withdrawal from the South-
west Conference surfaced yester-
day following a conference repri-
mand.
"The resolution passed by the
conference was far too severve
and to that extent I feel this
means some concern down the
road in regards to the future of
Texas in the Southwest Confer-
ence," J. Neils Thompson, faculty
representative of athletics, told the
Austin American.
Two baseball players, unbeaten
pitcher James Street, also star
quarterback of the nation's No. 1
football team, and Tommy Har-
mon were censured and repri-
manded by the conference for their
part in an April 17 incident in
which Street knocked Baylor Uni-
versity baseball coach Dutch Sch-
roeder off his feet with a stand-up
football block.
Schroeder was protesting a
squeeze play in which Harmon
vigorously tagged out a Baylor
player.
Street maintained that he did
not "intentionally go after the
coach. I was standing there and
felt he saw me. It really shocked
me when the collision occurred."
mAlso unsettling was the appoint-
ment of a special committee to
study a 25-year-old rule which
permitted Street to withdraw from
school prior to mid-year final ex-
ams and return this semester
without wiping out his eligibility
to play baseball.
"It would have gone unnoticed
this time had the incident involved
only a third-string guard," one
conference official said.

If you're about to get your degree, it's time to

Are you more interested in people, in things or

ingful commitments to other people as well as to
yourself?
It is worth thinking about. We at International
Harvester also continue to critically examine our
economic and social responsibilities. We are grow-

B D MOR l IS
In rather chilly Ann Arbor
eath 'r te day at rnoon, the
Michigan tennis team ,dropped a
7-2 decison to Miami of Florida.
Despite the cold, which forced
players to sit in ers betw 11
matches, the Michigan team Put
on a solid performance against
the nationally rat d Hurricanes.
# A little bit of luck miht have
given Michigan the upset as four
nmatchces were not deeid.d until
the third set and all four went
to Miami.
Inth nmber oe single
match, Michigan star Mark Conti
seemed to have Miami's Pat Cram-
S on the ropes as he won the irst
set and was serving at 4-3 in tlhe
second. However Cramer. who is
a former Sout h African Davis Cup
player, managd to break service
at. that poit and dominated the
match afer that to gain a 3-6.
8-6, 6-3 victory.
Aftter the mat ch, Conti bemoaned
the fact that he was still not in
top form after bng ek. "I
haven't ben abe to pracee and
I just didn't have confidence in
my shots. I was a'e to play well
at times bu I was eratic " he
added.
At num ber two s ls. Miami's
uis Garcia, who plays Dax is Cup
or Mexico. d e ated Jon Hain-
ine 6-1. 6-3.
The third and four! h inles
matches were also straight set vic-
tories for Miami as Joes Ross lost
to Eddie Dibbs 6-3, 6-3 and Ra-

mone Alnonte lost to Rae Reid
6-3, 6-1.
However at the fifth position
Michigan's Bruce DeBore gave Mi-
ami's Steve Siegel a good match
as he won the first set 6-2 before
dropping the following two by
scorns of 7-5, 6-3.
In the last singles match, ten-
acious Tim Ott also played a
strong match only to lose to Mi-
ami's Sven Ginman by a score of
6-2, 3-6, 8-6.
Michigan got a chance to show
its class in the doubles. Hainline
and Conti were a real bright spot
as they combined to beat the high-
ly regarded team of Cramer and
Garcia 6-1, 6-4. Cramer and Gar-
cia had been undefeated in 19
straight matches.
Ca nti was especially brilliant at
the net, as he frequently plastered
volleys away for winners. Hain-
line kept his opponents in con-
stant trouble with accurate re-
turns and generally steady play.
At number two doubles Ross
and Ott lost a heartbreaker as
they fended off three match points
before going down to Dibbs and
R id by a score of 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.
And in the third doubles match
the Michigan team of Dan Mc-
Laughlin and Bruce DeBore solid-
ly defeated Miami's Siegal and
Ginman 6-1, 6-4.
Michigan coach Brian Eisner
was neither elated or discouraged
by his tram's performance. "When
lhere are four three set matches
you sort of expect to get one or

two of them. On the other hand,
I thought we got a good overall
team effort. Miami is, of course,
a very fine tennis team."
Eisner was pleased with the}
strength Michigan had shown in
the doubles. "We've been experi-
menting with various combina-
tions of players and it looks as
though we maye have found some
solid teams."
