Blue tangle Tartars
Biding their time until the Big Ten championship is decided this
weekend, Michigan hosts Wayne Stae ina non-conference doubleheader at 2
p.m. this afternoon.
The Wolverines (25-12) can't afford to slow down with the end of the
regular season close at hand due to the possibility of Michigan State
sweeping them this weekend.
Should the Spartans accomplish that, the two will be tied, with MSU get-
ting the Big Ten bid into the NCAA's due to the head to head advantage.
If all that happens, the Wolverines could still grab an at-large bid, but
only with an impressive enough record. Thus Michigan must take the Tar-
tars (25-16) seriously. Wayne State, members of the Great Lakes Inter-
collegiate Athletic Conference, will be playing their final series of the year,
and will probably face Michigan hurlers Bill Stennett, Steve Perry, Mark
Clinton and Tom Owens during the twin bill.

IOC sources said Los Angeles would
be required to sign a contract drafted
by the IOC within a specific period,
possibly 21 days. If Los Angeles did not
comply, new bids would then be invited
for the games.-
THAT WAS the uneasy position after
days of wrangling between the lawyers
of the two sides. The dispute came down
to the wording of Rule 4 in the Olympic
This rule says the host city and the
National Olympic Committee (NOC) of
the host country are jointly responsible
for running the games to the satisfac-
tion of the IOC.
It also says that the NOC and the city
chosen shall be jointly responsible for
all commitments entered into and shall

Los Angeles lawyers have argued
that the inclusion of a third party - the
NOC or the United States - would
