FAVORED WOMEN FACE MSU TODAY:
Netters coast in
By BOB WARREN
It would be strange for a coach of a tennis team
that lost 8-1 to another team to be confident that it
has a good chance of winning the rematch, but this
is not the case for Michigan State women's tennis
coach Earl Rutz.
"We have a very good chance of beating
Michigan," Rutz said in reference to the SMAIAW
state qualifying tournament being held this
weekend in Ann Arbor. "Sure, we lost badly to
Michigan at Wisconsin, but we've analyzed the,
matches and now have a better idea of how to play
MSU better have a good idea of how to play
Michigan, because the Blue netters destroyed
Eastern Michigan yesterday, 9-0.
"We'll beat Michigan, we have a good chance,"
commented MSU's fifth singles player Diane Selke,
winner of that spot over Michigan's Lisa Wood in
the recent Big Ten championships. "We came here
to win and we're confident we can do it," added
Michigan State was seeded second behind
Michigan for this state qualifier that places the first
place team in the midwest regional next week at
Ball State. The Spartans defeated Central Michigan
7-2 yesterday to gain the finals of the dual match
competition, where they will meet Michigan.
"Michigan is playing hard for Bill Flood and
that's bad for us," Rutz explained regarding how
well Michigan has played since Flood replaced John
Atwood as coach two weeks ago. "He gained a lot of
respect from the coaches around the league, the
way he handled the seeding dispute at the Big Tens,
but that has nothing to do with our chances of
When asked about Michigan's welcomed addition
of Whit Stodghill to the lineup, Rutz commented,
"Whit is a fine player and could help Michigan in
both doubles and singles even though she is only"
playing doubles in this tournament,"
Rutz's prediction has thus far been a good one as
Stodghill teamed up with Leticia Diaz-Perez to win
their first doubles match together, 6-2, 6-2 against
"It was a lot of fun," said Stodghill after her mat-
ch. '-We were nervous before the match, but we
should have beaten them and we did."
Stodghill and Diaz-Perez were not the only
Michigan players to enjoy success today as all six
singles players won their matches in straight sets as
did the other two doubles teams.
The tournament's number one seeded player,
Michigan co-captain Kathy Karzen, had few
problems defeating EMU's Barb Fischley, 6-2, 6-2.
Michigan's other seeded players Kathy Krickstein
(fourth) and Sue Weber (fifth) also won with ease as
Krickstein scored a 6-2, 6-3 win and Weber played
well in her 6-0,6-1 victory.
Huron coach Lucy Parker had a more realistic
perspective of the tournament than Coach Rutz.
"We got beat very soundly, but we did better
against Michigan than we did before. I'm satisfied
because we did play better, but no one likes to lose.
We needed this tough match to get ready for the in-
dividuals. Fischley is seeded seventh, so we do have
a chance of placing someone."
Lion's Barney named
PONTIAC (AP)-The Detroit Lions
issued a statement yesterday saying
they had been assured defensive back
Len Barney was only wanted as a wit-
ness in an alleged drug ring case in Buf-
"We have been in touch with both Ed
Bell, Lem's attorney, and NFL security
and they have assured us that Lem is
not a defendent in this case nor has he
been indicted," the club said in a
statement released through its public
"HE HAS NOT been, nor will he be
arrested," the statement said. "He has
only been asked to testify about his
knowledge of individuals connected
with this case.
"League security has again
reassured us after checking with the
chief assistant district attorney in Buf-
falo that Lem Barney is not criminally
involved in this case."
BARNEY WAS taken into protective
custody yesterday in Buffalo, N.Y., as a
material witness in an investigation in-
to an alleged area drug ring.
He was ordered held in custody in lieu
of $100,000 bail after investigators said
his testimony was "necessary" to com-
plete a probe by the Erie County grand
ACCORDING TO court papers, Bar-
ney's testimony was sought in connec-
tion with indictments against a man
whose former apartment was wiretap-
At the request of Barney's attorney,
Lester Hudson of Detroit, it was agreed
to grant Barney immunity from
prosecution in return for his testimony.
Sip into something
So smooth. Easy to sip. Delicious!
C'omfort*'s unlike any other liquor.
It tastes good just poured over ice.
That's why it makes mixed drinks
taste much better, too.
Old Blue on the move
Former Michigan All-American tight end Jim Mandich was acquired by the Wash-
ington Redskins yesterday. The Miami Dolphins, in parting with the eight year
veteran, picked up a pair of eighth round draft choices from the 'Skins. Mandich,
shown here as a three-year letterman in the late sixties, captained the Wolverines
in 1969, leading the team to the Rose Bowl that year. Since then, he has appeared
in two Super Bowls with the Dolphins.
