THE MICHIGAN DAILY Tuesday, May
THEMICHIGAN DAILY SPORTS STAFF feels a great
sense of loss and extends its deepest regrets to the
family and friends of Bob Gillon, who met an untimely
death in a car accident on Saturday.
Bob, who was a former president of the lacrosse club
and immediate past president of the Sports Club Asso-
ciation, played a vital role in promoting increased Uni-
versity service to the recreational needs of students
through work with the Office of Student Organizations
Policy Board and also on the Advisory Committee for
Recreation, Intramurals and Club Sports.
Perhaps the foremost of Bob's contributions was his
leadership in the 1968 "lie-ins," which impeded the pro-
gress of bulldozers on Wines Field, and prevented the
paving of Wines Field. This action not only saved Wines
Field, but guaranteed the rugby and lacrosse clubs play-
ing space and preserved a field needed desperately by
Other contributions which Bob made to student rec-
reational needs came from his work with the OSO Policy
Board. In addition to working on a funding program
which helped to guarantee equipment for club sport.
teams, lob played an important role in involving the
Women's Athletic Association on the OSO Board and
brought them from near extinction to representative
membership in the Sports Club Association.
Bob's humanitarianism and involvement with so-
cial as well as recreational issues served as an inspira-
tion to many people, and the university community owes
him a great debt.

.. .a commercial cop-out
While Detroit fans and sportswriters are up in arms about
Al Kaline's failure to make the All-Star ballot, consider poor
Rico Carty. The Atlanta outfielder is off to a spectacular start.
Since being blanked on opening day, the slugging Brave has
hit safely in 29 straight games and is batting over .400, yet he
is not on the All-Star ballot either.
The reason that Kaline and Carty were not on the ballot
is simple enough. The ballots were made up before the season
Among the more noteworthy players on the ballot are Ken
Harrelson, out for the year with a broken leg, Don Mincher of
Oakland, currently tearing up the league with a .220 average,
and Cleon Jones of the Mets, who is currently thundering the
horsehide to a .182 tune.
Meanwhile, such names as Spencer, Hopkins, Gra-
brokewitz will not appear on the ballot and their possessors
will probably not get invited to Cincinnati. Even the Red's
rookie phenom Wayne Simpson and his 1.35 ERA will not
make it unless the Cincy fans start stuffing those boxes.
Fans had made the All-Star selections up until 1957 or so,
when a horde of Cincinnati partisans engaged in one of the
great ballot-box stuffing campaigns in history. Loyal Red root-
ers managed to get seven of their home-town favorites starting
berths, and it was quickly decided that the voting would be
done by the players.
The idea behind the return to public voting for the All-.
Stars is to return player selection to the fans, but instead, Base-
ball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn and his cohorts have given it
to Gillette. And the "once in the morning does it" people de-
cided that costs would be prohibitive if the printing of the bal-
lots was rushed through before the game, and so they had them
printed up well in advance.
It was nice of Gillette to sponsor the All-Star voting,
and it is too bad that they expected a favor from baseball
for services rendered. It would have been just as easy to
give the fans interested in voting a ballot with a listing of
all the players, although it may have been more cumber-
some. But after all, if a job's worth doing, it's worth doing
To say that this little money-saving 'ruse was bastardizing
the voting would be an understatement. The premature ballot
is unfair to both players and fans, and it is hard to find any
justification for baseball placing the interests of Gillette above
the best interests of baseball.
I for one am not so sure that giving the vote back to the
fans was such a hot idea. I can't believe that it will drum up
any more interest (or disinterest) in baseball. No one is more
capable of judging a baseball player's ability than another base-
ball player, but this is not my main reason for opposing a na-
tional ballot. My mind sees this horrid vision of nine Mets tak-
ing the diamond in Cincinnati in July.

Valuable Player in the playoffs, giving him an unprecedented sweep of hockey awards. He had ear-
lier been named season MVP, scoring champion, and outstanding defenseman.
