Namath 's back
NEW YORK (P)-Joe Namath, the New York Jet's controver-
sial quarterback passed a physical examination yesterday and said
he will report to the National Football League club's training
The shaggy-haired $400,000 bonus baby out of Alabama, who
led the Jets to a stunning Super Bowl victory over Baltimore two
years ago, has missed New York's first two exhibition games but
said Monday he would report to the training camp in Hempstead,
N.Y., in the morning.
A statement released by a Jets' spokesman said: "Joe Na-
math was examined by Dr. James Nicholas at 5 p.m., on Monday
and after a 1 hour and 45-minute examination passed his physi-
cal and will be allowed to report to camp. He will report to camp
Namath, troubled by two bad knees, both which have under-
gone surgery, had no comment. But Weeb Ewbank, coach of the
Jets said: "We're happy to have Joe coming back. We have a lot
of work to do to make up for lost time. We'll have to see how Joe's
legs react to setting up this week:
"We know that in the past setting up bothers his knees,
especially the first couple of weeks. I know everyone-wants to
know if he'll play against the Giants. It's too early to tell. We'll
have to play it by ear."
The Jets face the New York Giants Sunday at New Haven,
Namath, who has made some motion pictures and reportedly
was asking for more money to play football, dispelled the rumor,
saying it was only his knees that were keeping him from playing.
Namath is known to dislike exhibition games because of the
added risk to his tender knees, but the Giants' game also might
have helped make up his mind.
"If Joe Namath is ever going to come back to us he'll come
back for the Giant game," said a Jets player in the game which
is billed as the Battle of New York.

Getting lher kicks ..
.. .the hard way
Al ALE CHAUVINISTS of the world, unite. If you are to main-
tain a semblance of your masculinity, if you are ever going
to keep the hair on your chest, now is the time to act. The
last sacred bastion of manhood, professional football, has been
invaded by women.
Pat Palinkas is a blonde, petite Florida housewife and
first-grade teacher. She likes ironing and playing foot-
ball. Her husband is a place-kicker, and in order to add a
dimension of reality to his practice sessions, Pat began
holding the ball for him. After a while, she got pretty
proficient at it, and so when .hubby went to try out
with the Orlando Panthers, it was only logical that Pat go
along so he would do his best.
Rather than support the sacredness of manliness, the Or-
lando management, their eyes blinded by the prospects of
having a fairly good gimmick on their hands, signed both Pat
and hubby to play the exhibition opener against Bridgeport.
Pat didn't get a chance to do her thing until late in the
first half when the Panthers pushed across their first touch-
down. She walked out onto the field, nervously jabbering away,
and when the time came, knelt down and barked out the signals.
The ball soared back to her hands a trifle higher than she
might have liked, and oops, she dropped it. Her husband, ap-
parently fearful for his frail 120-pound wife, dove to cover the
ball and hopefully lure the Bridgeport players away from her.
No such luck.
She got clobbered. A linebacker, who, afterwards said,
"I tried to kill her," caught her on the fly in the chest,
and four more players quickly tumbled into the heap. Prior
to the game, some Bridgeport players vowed to get her,
claiming that she was "trying to make us all look silly."
Right on, brothers.
But Pat is wiry. She got right up, brushed aside condolences
and said she wasn't hurt, which must rate as one of the medical
miracles of the decade, and trotted to the sideline. "Gol darn
it," she kept repeating, "I dropped it, I just dropped it."
Had Orlando failed to score again, Pat might have not
gotten another chance, and the whole thing could have died
right there. But alas, the Panthers, motivated by concerns other
than their manhood, scored another touchdown, and another,
and another. The first two conversion attempts were letter per-
fect, and although I do hate to admit it, Pat isn't, a bad
holder. After the second successful attempt, she nearly danced
off the field she was so happy. "Two out of three! Two out of
three," she exclaimed. "Not bad."
Where the feminist trend in football will go from here
is unclear, but I fear the worst. The shape of the game
may never be the same again, but at least one man does not
feel overly threatened by the whole thing. Pat's husband
probably isn't putting up too much of a kick.
P.S. In a valiant but futile move, the league commissioner
said yesterday that he was holding Pat's contract back, meaning
she can't play once regular season begins. Some people never
learn that the times are changing.

Major League Standings
The conference was originally scheduled
to -take place in the Union but U.nion
General Manager Stanfield Wells last
week reversed his earlier stand and re-
scinded the allocation of space for the
conference. Wells' action cameafter he
received a letter from Vice President for
Student Services Barbara Newell reiterat-
ing President Fleming's original reasons
for banning a GLF conference.
Approximately 35 people from Lansing,
Kalamazoo and Detroit in addition to the
Ann Arbor area attended the conference
Saturday. GLF had reserved space in the
SAB at the same time it asked for rooms
in the Union.
Much of the all day meeting was spent
debating the nature of a Gay Lib organi-
zation. Several of the Ann Arbor mem-
bers felt GLF is a group within a radical
movement and s h o u 1 d therefore work
with other radical organizations such as
Students for a Democratic Society.
Members of the Lansing Gay Lib or-
ganization, however, argued Gay Lib
organizations should be primarily con-
cerned with the specific problems of

They then went to President Fleming's
house, and after failing to get an answer
when they knocked on the door, repeated
the skits on Fleming's front steps.
Moving on to the Diag, the group sat
down for a picnic on the grass.
Approximately ten members of the
group went to the Washtenaw County

night in the Union Ballroom where they
were given five minutes to speak to the

Council Executive Vice President Jerry

cause it was summer. But in the fall we
(SGC) plan to back GLF in its effort to
hold the Midwest conference in the.
It was Fleming's ban in April of the
planned Midwest conference that orig-
inally started the controversy over GLF's
right to use Union facilities.
De Grieck added, "Saturday's confer-
ence shows that the only adverse reac-
tion (to a homosexual conference) comes
from the fact that Fleming decided to
make an issue of the conference."
