From UPI and AP and staff reports
The old saying "If you don't like the
weather in Michigan, wait a minute and
it'll change" was literally true yester-
Lower Peninsula residents who woke
to April-like rain and temperatures as
high as the 50s saw January conditions
return with a vengeance by afternoon.
Temperatures dropped sharply and the
rain turned to snowshowers.
AT 8 P.M. yesterday, the WAAM
Weather Service in Ann Arbor was still
announcing mild weather for the day,
with a high of 50 degrees. The tem-
perature at that time had dropped to 30
The National Weather Service said
the 55-degree reading at the Kent Coun-
ty Airport at 11 a.m. was a record for
the date. An hour later, the mercury
had dropped 15 degrees to 40.
d Morning temperatures also topped
the 50-degree mark in Benton Harbor.
Temperature readings in the upper 40s
were recorded as far north as Pellston
and Traverse City.

IT WAS A different story in the Upper
Peninsula. Freezing rain overnight
slicked most major roads, making
driving hazardous Friday morning. By
noon, a blizzard warning was in effect
for the western U.P. with heavy snow
and high winds predicted.
Conditions were so bad at Houghton
- where foul weather is not uncommon
- that Michigan Technological Univer-
sity called off classes for the day.
Police agencies urged motorists to stay
hone except in emergencies. .
State police said they expected
driving conditions to deteriorate
rapidly throughout the day.
"IF WE GET a lot of rain and the
temperatures quickly drop, we can get
some pretty dangerous driving con-
ditions," said Sgt. Roger Horchner of
the Reed City post. "People are going to

have to be extremely cautious when
they're on the road."
The return of winter was welcomed at
Alpena, where officials were gearing up
for Saturday's Thunder Bay 250
,snowmobile race - the first leg of
Michigan's Triple Crown of
Race director John Crow said the
zero temperatures expected Friday
night as the cold front moves through
the area would help improve track con-
ditions considerably.
LOWS TONIGHT were expected to
dip to around zero in the southern
Lower Peninsula, to seven below in the
northern Lower Peninsula and to 15
below in the Upper Peninsula.
Saturday's highs were expected to be
only around 20 in the Lower Peninsula

and the mid-teens in the Upper Penin-
Meanwhile, bad weather prevailed
all over the midwest and west. High
winds lashed Colorado, Utah, tto
Dakotas and Wisconsin, whipping up
newly fallen snow, cutting visibility,
and closing many highways.
"All of a sudden it was blowing real
hard and it dropped about nine degrees
in one hour. You couldn't see two feet in
front of you," said Robert Kelly of the
Jackson County Sheriff's office.
In North Dakota, winds and blowing
snow hampered travel and closed ma
schools. Northwest winds created
wind chill index of 68 degrees below
zero at Bismarck.
WINDS GUSTED over 100 mph in the
mountains of Colorado, where
snowslides closed several mountain
passes. Late Thursday, Greeley dispat-
cher Wilbert Walters described the
situation as a 'white-out'. They can't
see nothing in places."



Wolverine tankers swamp Hurons

One block South of South U.

Special to the Daily
YPSILANTI-The Michigan women's
swimming team upped its dual meet
record to 2-0 as it completely outclassed
the Eastern Michigan tankers,101-39 lst
night, at Eastern's home pool. The out-
come of the meet was never in question
after theWolverines won the meet's fir-
st event, the 200 medley relay.
"The girls are making fine progress
for this time of the year," said
Michigan caoch Stu Isaac. "But we're
still pointing for the bigger meets later
in the year. We've got the Indiana meet
in two weeks, and of course the Big Ten
Meet later in February.
"Of course, we can't look past that
Michigan State meet tomorrow (Satur-
day)," cautioned Isaac, referring to the
Spartans' invasion of Matt Mann Pool,
set for 2 p.m. today. "State's always a
factor when they swim against us. We'll

have to pick up the pace quite a bit,
starting with this meet."
Although the meet turned out to be
nothing more than an exhibition for the
swimmers, Isaac was pleased at the
progress the women have shown. He
was especially pleased with the per-
formances of sophomore Marion Stan-
wood in the 200 freestyle and fresh-

Isaac also singled out sophomore
Marie Palko's performance in the 100
yard individual medley as one of the
meet's bright spots. "For this early in
the season, Marie is really making fine

progress," stated Isaac.
The meet also provided a fine tune-up
for three of Michigan's divers, fresh-
woman Vicki Kimball (winner of the
one- and three-meter events) and
seniors Ann McDivitt and Julie Jeffrey.
These three will be pointing toward the
Diving Zone Qualifying Meet Feb. 11-12.
That meet could springboard them into
the AIAW National championships in
Isaac left his two best divers (junior
Julie Bachman and senior Barb Wein-
stein have already qualified for the
AIAW) and he had a few other- girls
swimming in their secondary events.
That won't be the case from here on out,
however. "Starting with the State meet,
we'll be using all of our divers, and the
girls will be swimming their main even-
ts," said Isaac.
It sounds like he's taking the rest of
the schedule a little more seriously than
he took Eastern Michigan.
Matmen meet
Wildcats, Penn St.
The injury-riddled Michigan
Wolverine wrestlers will have their
hands full this weekend when they face
Northwestern and Penn State..
Coach Dale Bahr's grapplers will
have their work cut out for them due to
the injuries to some key personnel.
Junior Jim Mathias cracked a bone in
his neck and will not return for the
remainder of the season. Senior Lou
Jospeh suffered an elbow injury in the
Kent State meet and will be out for at
least a month; and senior Steve Bennett
injured his knee, and might require
In Northwestern the Wolverines will
be facing a club similar to their own.
Both teams are comprised of mainly

freshmen and sophomores. However,'
the Wildcats do have a potential All-
American candidate in senior Mike
Whitzman, a heavyweight who recently
placed fifth in the important Midland
Tournament over the holidays. Whit-
zman is considered an excellent Olym-
pic prospect.
Michigan will be facing Penn State
for the second time this season. In their
earlier confrontation, the Blue grap-
plers defeated the Nittany Lions by
three and a half points.
"Penn State is probably the second
best team in the East, aside from
Lehigh," said Bahr.
The Nittany Lions are paced bW
senior Mike DeAugustino in the 118
weight class, junior Bernie Fritz, who
wrestles at 142, and sophomores Bob
Burry and John Hanrahan.
Penn State's greatest accomplish-
ment this season was an upset victory
over number three-ranked Oklahoma,
With injuries hurting the Michigan
crew, superlative efforts will be needed
by sophomores Mark Pearson and Joh
Belijan. Bahr has. been quite impresseW
with the pair's performance.
"Mark is 11-7 and John is 10-4, with
two of the defeats coming against All-
Americans," said Bahr.
