style to the type of team we have,'' he
said. "It all depends -on, the kind of
players we get."
In addition to possessing tactical
skills, Frieder is known among Big Ten
circles as a first-rate recruiter. This
spring's recruiting crop promises to be
Michigan's finest in years, especially if
Frieder succeeds in landing Clarkston's
6-10% Tim McCormick.
"IT'S EXTREMELY important to
Michigan and me that he come here,"
said Frieder. "Everything else is
secondary right now."
'Neither Frieder nor Canham would
discuss specifies relating to the new
head coach's contract. "It was a han-
dshake agreement," said Canham.
"We really didn't talk about specifics.
It will be comparable (to Orr's $33,665),.
maybe a little more.='
Frieder joked about Canham's

reputation as a tough bargainer. "I had
a list of ten demands for Canham and
he said, 'No' to the first one," Frieder
quipped. "I wanted to park my car .in
the tunnel (at Crisler) on days of the.
game. It wasn't so much that he said
no, but how he said it."
The diminutive Frieder, a native of
Saginaw, graduated from Michigan in,
1964 with a Bachelor's degree in
Business Administration and one year
later received his MBA from the
University.
HE THEN went to Alpena High
School where he coached the junior
varsity for two seasons before entering.
private business.
Frieder returned to coaching as the
head junior varsity mentor at Flint
Northern, and in 1970 took over that
school's varsity program. In his first
season as head coach at Northern,
Frieder's team went 22-0 and won the
Class 'A' state championship. The next
season, Frieder guided Flint Northern
to a second straight Class 'A' title with
a 25-0 record.
Orr hired Frieder in 1973 and in two
years he succeeded Jim Dutcher
(current Minnesota head coach) as
Orr's top assistant..
Frieder and his wife Jan, along with
their one-year-old daughter Laura,
reside in Ann Arbor.

TUCSON; Ariz. (AP) - Jesse Owens,
whose life "symbolized the struggle
against tyranny" and whose track and
field ability showed a quiet grace to a
world headed for war, died Monday at
age 66 of lung cancer.
The black runner gripped the world
when he went to Adolf Hitler's Berlin in
1936 and won four gold medals at the
Olympic Games the Nazi dictator plan-
ned as proof of his theory of racial
supremacy.
Owens died about 3:40 a.m. MST at
the University of Arizona Hospital,
where he had undergone experimental
treatment for his cancer, which was
discovered Dec. 12. Ruth, his wife of 47
years, and other relatives were at his
side, doctors said.
"He had the best shot we could offer,

great e.
but he didn't respond," said Dr.
Stephen E. Jones, chief of the hospital's
oncology unit and head of the team that
treated Owens.
Owens spent the last week of his life
in a critical and deteriorating con-
dition, but Jones said he remained
"remarkably optimistic and hopeful
that he was going to survive. He had a
strong will to live and I don't think he
ever lost it." ,
After the 1936 Games, Owens became
the measure to which other athletes
were compared. He won four gold
medals at Hitler's arena and the leader
of the Nazi regime watched his dreams
of an Aryan victory dissolve.
In his amateur career, Owens set a
total of 11 world records. It was four
decades before the last of those marks

se Owens
was erased.
On May 25, 1935, Owens had what
many still acknowledge to have been
the greatest single day's effort by a
track and field athlete. In a meet at Ann
Arbor, Mich., he broke three world's
records and tied a fourth in a little more
than an hour.
At the Big 10 meet held on that day,
Owens established a 220-yd. dash mark
of 20.3 seconds, tied the 100-yd. record
in 9.4 seconds, leaped to a new long
jump mark of 26'8 ", and dashed over
the 220 low hurdles in 22.6 seconds.
After the 1936 Berlin Games, Owens
came home to a country still racially
divided and unappreciative of black
contributions. He raced against horses
and appeared in tank towns to make
enough money to exist.

dies
Yet he was not a man to be denied. He
became a successful public relations
executive in Arizona. Olympic officials
sought his counsel. Presidents invited
him to the White House: Adulation
followed him everywhere, particularly
overseas.
Whenever he hit a town, kids, black
and white - unborn when he was a
sports hero - gravitated to him. He had
a rare magnetism.
He also had a rare gift of speech - an
inspirational orator of the Martia
Luther King and Jesse Jackson ilk.
His message was always one of
moderation - love your country, love
your neighbor, judge a man by his
deeds not his race, religion or creed.

Paul Heuerman and Thad Garner
each collected three awards at last
night's Michigan basketball bust, in-
cluding the honor of serving as co-
captains of the 1980-81 team.
Heuerman received the Wayman..
Britt Trophy for defensive excellence,
while Garner was awarded the Steve
Grote Trophy, which is annually given.
to the team's most hustling player.
Both players shared the Rudy Tom-
janovich Trophy for the most improved
player.
FORWARD MIKE McGee, who led
the 1979-80 team in scoring, was awar-
ded the Bill Buntin Trophy as the

squad's most valuable player.-
Reserve center John Garris was the
only Wolverine player absent from the
ceremony, which was held in Crisler
Arena. Garris returned to his home in
Bridgeport, Conn. more than a week
ago, and has yet to return to Ann Arbor.
Head Coach Bill Frieder said he plans
to discuss Garris' future at Michigan
with the 6-9 sophomore at the end of this
week.
"I'll be honest with you," said
Frieder. "The thing about John is that
he has to start playing with more inten-
sity."
SOURCES HAVE indicated Garris is
contemplating a transfer to another
school If Garris were to leave
Michigan, he would be the second
Wolverine player to prematurely
depart the team this year: Guard Keith
Smith announced last week that he
definitely will not return to Michigan
next season.
Outgoing coach Johnny Orr, who
eight days earlier accepted the head
coaching position at Iowa State, was in
attendance at the banquet, and injected
a tone of sentimentality into the
ceremony.
"I've never enjoyed coaching a team
any more than this group," said Orr.
"Everyone said we weren't going to do
things, and we went out and did them.

Staubach retires*
DALLAS (AP) - Dallas quarterback Roger Staubach announced
yesterday he was retiring after 11 seasons in the National Football League,
saying he "thanks the Cowboys" for his experience.
"It's a decision based on various reasons," he said. "There's a point in
your career when you have to make a decision... you want to spend the
quality time with your family."
A series of concussions last season "was not an overriding factor" he
said. "I never worried about injuries."
"It's a fairly complex decision for any athlete to make .. .being on top
and winning the Super Bowl would be nice but there were a lot of good things
in the '70s.
"I will not look back on the decision."
A reporter asked Staubach before last season about his plans for
retirement, and the quarterback said he would play until he was 42. Whey
42?
"Because Coach Landry has promised me that when I'm 42I can call my
own plays," he said.

By JON WELLS
The occasion was the nineteenth annual dekers hockey award banquet.
The event was Dan Farrel's final appearance as coach of the Michigan
hockey team. Amidst a plentiful buffet dinner and a river of beer, the depar-
ting Wolverine mentor paid tribute to the cast of characters that formulated

most valuable icer, was awarded to goalie Paul Fricker.
The Dekers Club award for Rookie of the Year was given to freshman
left wing Brad Tippett. The Alton D. Simms Trophy for most improved
Michigan player was awarded to sophomore Steve Richmond.
The Doc Losh Trophy was awarded to sophomore Murray Eaves for the
most points on the Michigan team, 85.'

Everybody emphasizes the hazards
of playing on the road, from Big Ten
basketball to ultimate frisbee, but what
about the gentlemen's sport of tennis?
Yes, beware the tennis road trip too, as
Brian Eisner's men's team barely
escaped with two hard-earned wins in
last weekend's tri-meet at Wichita
State.
On Saturday, playing on a quick sur-
face, Michigan narrowly defeated 17th
ranked Wichita State 5-4 in front of an
enthusiastic home-town crowd and then
knocked off Southern Illinois-
Edwardsville 9-0uthe following day.
Eisner comments, "Even with a day to
practice, it still takes time to adjust.
The courts were very fast."
IN ADDITION to the foreign courts,
the Wichita natives were in full force
backing the Shockers. "They were
really fired up for us," explains fresh-
man Mark Mees, "They had a big
crowd supporting them."
The enthusiastic Kansis received
their money's worth as six of the nine
matches went three sets incluaing third
singles where Mees fought off four
match points to defeat Wichita State's
Brod Dyke 6-4, 5-7, 7-6.
"If I had to pick an MVP for the day it

would have been Mark Mees. He really
turned the tide," added Eisner.
Michigan was down 3-2 in singles with
numbers four, five and six singles
falling to Wichita State, before Mees
finished up with his exciting win.
AT NUMBER FOUR singles, Jud
Shaufler lost a cliff-hanger to Paul
Smith 6-4, 5-7, 7-6, co-captain Jack
Neinken succumbed in straight sets to
Bill Nichols 6-4, 6-2 and freshmen Tom
Haney fell to Steve Guy 6-3, 6-3.
On the other hand, the top singles
competitors from Michigan, Michael
Leach and Matt Horwitch "had two
great wins over the weekend" accor-
ding to Eisner. Number one singles
player Leach defeated Mark McMahon
7-6, 2-6, 6-4 and at number two Horwitch
snuck by Myron Pushyk 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 to
knot singles competition at 3-3.
To add to the pressure, two of the
three doubles matches went 7-5 in the
third set to trigger some nervous
Wolverines. Leach and Horwitch had no
problem with McMahon and Smith 6-2,
6-2, but Mees and Shaufler fell to
Nichols and O'Rourke 6-4, 2-6, 7-5. With
the match knotted at 4-4, Neinken and
Haney averted a Michigan loss by nip-
ping Pushyk and Dyke 4-6, 6-4, 7-5

prompting Eisner to comment, "W4
were very fortunate to win 5-4."
IN CONTRAST with the Wichita State
match, Michigan "had a great day
against Southern Illinois. We had all
day to adjust and they hadn't adjusted
yet," explained Eisner. "We were kind
of tense against Wichita but we were
more relaxed against Southern Illinois.
We came out smoking," added Mees, as
his team won 9-0.
At number one singles, Leac
defeated Juan Ferro, a semi-finalist i
Division I NCAA last year and
Milwaukee Tennis Classic champion, in
straight sets 6-4, 6-4. Horwitch knocked
off Raimo O'Jala 6-3, 6-4, Mees blasted
Hugo Nanez 6-4, 6-0' and Shaufler
disposed of Naumoff 6-2, 6-3.
At number five singles, Neinkin sur-
vived a slow start before eliminating
Jarma Leppanen 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 and Haney
completed the singles sweep with a 6-3,
7-6 win over Ray Kuzaua.
DESPITE THE easy singles wins,
two out of three doubles went three sets.
Leach and Horwitch remained un-
defeated over the weekend by downing
Farro and Numez 6-3, 2-6, 6-4. Mees and
Shaufler see-sawed past Leppanen and
Kuzaua 6-1, 6-7, 6-3 and Neinken and
Haney won easily over O'Jala and
Naumoff 6-4, 6-1 to complete the paten-
ted Michigan sweep 9-0.
Michigan is currently 7-1 and rank
ninth in the nation. The Wolverines
open the Big Ten season this week at
home against Illinois Friday at 2:30 and
Purdue 1:00 Saturday at Track and
Tennis.
