No. Dak. wins title over N. Michigan, 5-2

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (UPI)-Junior left wing Doug
Small, the tournament MVP, scored four goals on
assists from sophomoe wing Phil Sykes last night to
power North Dakota to a 5-2 victory over Northern
Michigan and its third national title in the 33rd NCAA
Hockey Tournament.
The Fighting Sioux, who had previously won NCAA
crowns in 1959 and 1963, avenged two earlier defeats
to the Wildcats in early Janury in winning their 14th
straight game tok cap a 31-8-1 season. North Dakota

had lost to Minnesota 4-3 in last year's final in
THE WILDCATS, competing in their first NCAA
tournament in just their fourth varsity season,
finished 34-&1.
Small opened the scoring at 9:43 of the first period
on a Fighting Sioux power play, when he banged
home the rebound of a Sykes shot for his 17th power-
play goal of the year.

North Dakota was forced to play without captain
Mark Taylor, who also assisted on Smail's first goal,
when he suffered a broken left collar-bone moments
Taylor finished the season as the nation's second-
leading scorer with 92 points, behind Wildcats senior
wing Bill Joyce's 96 points.
. Freshman goalie Darren Jensen, who did not play
in the 4-1 semifinal victory over Dartmouth, stopped
20 of 22 Northern Michigan shots.

The opportunity for Americans to attain this highest honor bestowed
upon an athlete comes once every four years, but for most it's just a once in a
lifetime chance. Unfortunately, this Olympic year President Jimmy Carter
has decided to deprive our athletes of the most important competition of'
their lives as a protest to the hosting Soviet Union.
The actions taken by the government, in particular Carter, to use the
U.S. non-participation in the Moscow Olympics as a tool to punish the
Soviets, is ridiculous. As a means of punishment, the Carter policy is
virtually harmless to the Soviets, and it hurts our nation to a far greater
Ideas for an alternative Games or another world championship are
impractical. The idea of an alternative Games is an inane dream, it would
take too much time, and the International Olympics Committee can't change
the site, anyway. World championships are held each year in almost every
sport, so another world championship won't be nearly as important as a real
The best alternative this summer is to participate in the Games but
organize a mass boycott of the opening ceremony. Carter's plea for other
countries to boycott the events has been answered by only one nation, West
Germany, so its effects are limited. It would be easy to get most of the
American allies to agree to boycott the opening ceremonies, which would be
an embarrassment to the Soviets that they wouldn't hide from their people.
The complete boycott requested by Carter will backfire on the United
States. The boycott will punish our athletes; our businesses, and our sports-
loving fans, while it will only increase the Soviets claim to athlete
United States businesses are losing over $13 million in Olympic-related
sales to the Soviet Union. That's a lot of business to swallow, especially
considering the size of our present trade deficit.
If there is one way to teach the Soviets that their ideology is not superior,
it is on the field of athletic competition. Probably the greatest setback to the
Soviets in the last ten years was the U.S. hockey victory over the U.S.S.R. in
the Winter Olympics. That same instance might also well be the highlight of
patriotism in our own nation in recent years, as the entire country
celebrated the win. The boycott will prevent anything like this from
happening again.
The Games are political; there's no questioning that. But the real
problem with the Olympics is not politics; it's politicians. Carter has no
choice but to continue his boycott because he is running for re-election, and if
he changes his mind it will kill the already limited trust voters have in him.
He has pimped our athletes and made them nothing more than his own
political pawns.
The Games have always been highly political in the past, but we have
only pulled out before during wartime when it was virtually impossible to
field a team. Why is this year so different from other years?
As Bert Nelson, editor of Track and Field News, wrote, "The Olympic
Games were never set up to separate the good guys from the bad guys. If
they were, we wouldn't have been competing with the Russians all along.
The Soviets are no different than they were last year or 10 years ago.
"They have a long-recognized history of expansionism and repression.
We competed with Uganda when Idi Amin was killing hundreds of thousands
of his own people. Nobody kicked us out of the Olympics when we were
involved in Vietnam, yet many people believed we shouldn't have been
involved in that war."
The Carter adminsitration says we are boycotting the Olympics because
the Soviets are hosts, and they want the world to finally give them
recognition as a regular place to live. They say the Soviets need the
legitimacy. Considering that only two countries are boycotting the Games,
the Soviets will get that legitimacy anyway.
Perhaps the most ridiculous part of our government's boycott of the
Games is that for four years our athletes train without any government help,
but then the government just comes along and says that they can't go. Now if
the government sponsored our athletes and paid for their training, they
would have every right to tell them that they couldn't compete. But that is
not the case. Athletes support themselves through jobs and public
contributions. And now, the greatest contribution the public can make is
show there dissatisfaction with Carter's boycott.

outdoor varsity courts.
Senior Kathy Karzen, playing num-
ber one singles, got Michigan off to a
good start by knocking off Wendy

trouble with Sweney, except in the
second set when she let the score slip to

Lacrosse club romps
The Michigan Lacrosse Club began
their season with an overwhelming 14-2
win over the Purdue j Boilermakers
yesterday at Tartan Turf Field. The
leading scorers of the eventful evening
were attack wings Tom Simon (four),
Eddy Anderson (two), and midfielder
John Kovanda (two).
With goal after goal, it became ap-
parent that the Wolverine players were
definitely the dominating team, as they
cpntrolled the pace of the game.
H wever, Coach Pete Lodwick said,
"My assessment of what happened in
the second, third, and fourth quarters of
the game (with the exceptional number
of goals scored) is that we should have
scored more in the first quarter. We
were slow to get started."
Lodwick's explanation for the romp
was, "The problem is that no one is
familiar with the sport. Like us, most
players are new to the game."
The next home Lacrosse game is
scheduled for 8:00 Wednesday night at
the Tartan Turf Field against Detroit.

They should be saved because who else will defend us against

The Hollywood Knights are clones of great performers of the

They should be saved because certain moralists (today's artists)
