In reacting to the announcement, Orr
called Olden "a good kid who we ob-
viously could have used," but it was ob-
vious that his heart was not broken.
"We had a hunch that it was coming
for the last month," said Orr, indicating
that he was aware of the potential
grade difficulty during the recruiting
procedures. "We decided at that time to
sign him and see what happens.
"His commitment to us is over," Orr
continued. "We'll follow his career and
if he does well next year, we may sign
him again. We're gonna wait and see."
Big Ten champion Michigan State
was hit with a similar problem but of
greater magnitude when it was an-
nounced that the Spartan's top recruit,
Walker D. Russell also lost his
eligibility due to grades.

Reggie Jackson of the New York Yankees slides across home plate in the second
inning of last night's Yankee-Boston game, which was tied 4-4 inthe 11th inning.
All that's left of catcher Carlton Fisk is his mask, as Fisk had to move up the line
to field an errant throw. Yankee ace Ron Guidry (12-0) had started for the Yanks.
