SOVIETS NEX T IN MEDALS PLAYOFF

U.S. icers zip past Germans, 4-2=

By The Associated Press
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. - The United
States hockey teanji, which made the
Olympic medals playoff even before it
took the ice last night, got two goals
from Rob McClanahan to beat West
Germany 4-2 and advanced to a mat-
chup with the Soviet Union. Sweden will
play Finland in the other game when
the medals round begins Friday.
Sweden, which beat Czechoslovakia
4-2 earlier Wednesday and clinched a
playoff spot for the Americans, finished
first in the Blue Division with the
Americans second. The Soviets beat
Canada 6-4 to take first place in the Red
Division ahead of Finland, which
routed the Netherlands 10-3.
FINLAND WILL play the United
States in the secon medals round game
Sunday and the Soviets continue their
quest for a fifth consecutive gold with a
Sunday game against Sweden.
The Americans fell behind 2-0 in the
first period as goalie Jim Craig wat-
ched a 70-foot shot by defenseman Hor-
st-Peter Kretschmer glance off his left
leg and into the net at 1:50. Craig, who
was injured when struck in the throat
by a shot during the pre-game warmup,
also missed .a 58-foot shot by defen-
Olympic Hockey Standings

seman Udo Kiessling four seconds into
a West Germany power play at 19:45 of
the session.
But the Americans, who have played
their best hockey in the second and
third periods of every Olympic game,
rallied in the second period on goals by
McClanahan and Neal Broten.
THEY PULLED within one on Mc-
Clanahan's goal at 7:40 of the session,
when he and Dave Christian, who had
three assists in the game, executed a
perfect 2-on-i. Broten tied it with 1:29
left in the session.
That was the 15th of the 22 American
goals to be scored in the first or last five
minutes of a session, and McClanahan
made it 16 of 23 at 1:17 of the third
period.
Phil Verchota kept the pattern going
by tipping in Christians' shot at 4:17 of
the third period, and the Americans -
seeded seventh of the 12 teams when the
Games began - had all the offense they
needed to hand WestGermany its four-
th loss in the five games.
Beth bags bronze
Beth Heiden ended a week of
frustration and a season of overly high
expectations yesterday, finally winning
a medal in the XIII Winter Olympics, a
bronze in the 3,000-meter speek s ating
contest.
Hours later, she began to cry and
rushed away from reporters after being
asked about the pressure that has come

with the wide acclaim she and her
brother, Eric, have received.

XIII OLYMPIC
(~CG~ INT ER
GAMES
.PLACID
.1980
Germany's Sabine Becker took the
silver with 4:32.79. Heiden finished in
4:33.77.
In three previous races here, the 20-
year-old Heiden had been kept out of
,500 eters, sesnth in the and fith
in the 1,000. Many had expected her to.
win most of the women's medals here,
just as they have expected a medals

sweep from Eric, who has won three
golds already. '
Jensen observed after yesterday's
race that Beth did not seem to compete
with the same fervor that brought he,
the world championship last year.
"I WOULD agree with her that I don't
have the same fighting spirit," Heiden
said. "I like to skate for myself. This
year, I sort of had the feeling I had to
skate for the press, you know. To hell ":
with you guys!"
She laughed, but her eyes glistened.

From Fratianne's face...
" . ,to C'anham's cash
Ramblings from the sports world:
"Okay, Professor Canham, what is the subject for today?"
"Money -the basic principles."
"But we've done that for the last nine weeks."
"Well, class, if you know about money, you'll understand life."
Tell that to Linda Fratianne, America's glamorous figure skater who
,had been eoflceded' the gold medal before the competition even started.
Jifortunately ror Fratianne, she is going to lose money at these Olympics,
.because she had to skate.
She had a face restructuring for umpteen dollars. Then, she purchased a
skating dress for several thousand dollars. Finally, she had to skate - and is
losing badly. Think of all the thousands of dollars in endorsements she is
dosing, and now she may not be able'to sign a lucrative contract with the Ice
Capades.
Explain the meaning of money to Detroit Tigers tight-wad general
manager Jim Campbell, who wouldn't come up with an extra $20,000 to pay
his two young stars, Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker. It's wonderful that
all his players are going to arbitration.
That way, when the season comes, none of them will be looking forward
-to playing. It's great to have disgruntled players. You're certain to have an
83-79 season for decades.
Speaking of money, if ABC is paying Dick Button, they should take his
'contract away. If he mentions Tai and Randy once more, I'm going to watch
the Detroit Red Wings.
SButton it, Dick
Can you believe Button had the gall to persistently announce during the
Russian anthem for the gold medalist ice dancers, 'It's too bad Tai and
Randy aren't here.' It's too bad you are there, Dick.
For that matter, it's a shame ABC is there.
"Mr. Canham, how much money do you make on the basketball team?"
° "Not very much, if fans continue to stay away from Crisler Arena.
Where are the fans? Why don't the fans want to sit behind the basket on the
rafters and not be able to see the game?
Speaking of those fans, as one of my colleagues remarked, "Criser
Arena is like a neutral court." Did you see Jenison Fieldhouse on Saturday
night? The fans won that game. How many games have you seen the crowd
'win' at Crisler Arena.
Speaking of winning, Bo Schembechler won Steve Smith over yesterday.
And who lost? Rick Hewlett and B. J. Dickey. But then again, Johnny Orr
needs a point guard and I am willing to bet Rich Hewlett may not have
travelled against Ohio State or thrown the ball away against Toledo.
Sitting on Bo's bench
Another recruit, Kerry Smith, a running back from Grand Rapids,
signed with Bo yesterday. Great luck to you, Kerry. It's a lot of fun to sit on
the bench for three years. Ask Lawrence Reid or Gerald Diggs about their
superlative high school careers and then their time watching backs like Rob
Lytle and Harlan Huckleby. Kerry, it's a blast to watch Butch Woolfolk run.
Back to basketball. Orr inked Ann Arbor's Dean Hopson and is hoping to
lure Tim McCormick. McCormick would help but Johnny O., please get a
point guard. Wouldn't Kevin Smith have helped?
And in the Big Ten, count everyone out except Indiana. With Mike
Woodson back, Bobby Knight's quintet should sail to the Big Ten title. Eldon
Miller's coaching, or lack thereof, will prevent Ohio State from winning it.
And Joe Barry Carroll, the omnipresent but slumping Purdue star, will
swoon just in time to lose a lot of money come NBA draft time.
Which brings us back to the subject of money. With money oftentimes
comes greed. For ten points, when you think of greed, who do you think of?
George Steinbrenner
Steinbrenner did not want the inimitable Billy Martin as his manager
because he shoved a marshmallow man around. But Oakland nw wants
Martin, so Steinbrenner wants some players in return. Greed.
"Oh, Mr. Canham, what does greed mean?"
"We learned that several weeks ago. Where were you?"

IF you

SED

1957

If you missed 1957 you missed the Russians launching Sput-
nik I into earth orbit. You missed seeing a young singer
continue his rise to the top of the record industry with a song
called Jailhouse-Rock. You missed the ballyhooed introduc-
tion of a car called Edsel. And you missed the birth of an
industry when a group of talented young engineers and
scientists formed the nucleus of Fairchild's
semiconductor operations.
Though you missed the beginning,
you haven't missed the future. Tal-
ent, enthusiasm and hard work
can take you as far today as it did
in 1957, Maybe even farther. Today,
with the vast resources of our parent company,
Schlumberger Limited, Fairchild is committed to
technological leadership and innovation. And while
we're pioneering new technologies, we are also creating
new career enrichment and em-
- ployee benefit programs.
Fairchild has exciting career openings on
both the West and East Coasts.
We'll be on campus in the next
week or so and would like to talk
to you about the future. Yours
and ours. Visit your placement center for the time and
place. It's an opportunity you won't want to miss.
