OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The
National Collegiate Athletic
Association will take no disciplinary ac-
tion before December against football
teams who approve a College Football
Association television contract, an
NCAA -attorney told a federal judge
during a hearing yesterday.
Richard Andrews, an NCAA attorney
from Kansas City, told U.S. District
Judge Luther Eubanks, that no action
will be taken against any of the schools
approving the CFA-NBC television con-
tract until the NCAA holds a special
convention Dec. 3-4 in St. Louis regar-

preliminary injunction to prevent it.

New team running stron

It's a relatively new team to
Michigan, with just two complete
sear;ons and only one home meet in its
past, so the women's cross country
team might seem a little inexperienced.
Add to that a first year coach and the
outlook for this year's thinclads might
not seem too bright.
On the contrary, the women
Wolverines have developed a powerful
FORMER OLYMPIAN France
Krader Goodridge has already guided
the cross country team to its first vic-
tory against Bowling Green, 23-34, as
the rookie mentor replace former coach
"There's been no trouble (in making
the transition)," said Goodridge, the
Michigan graduate, "I wish it could
have happened earlier. I won't be
caught up till the cross country season
While Goodridge might be a bit
behind, her runners are right on the top

MELANIE WEAVER, the most
talented runner on the women's squad,
has already claimed a first place
against the Falcons setting a new cour-
se record with a time of 18:20.2 for the
Last year Weaver had a spectacular
season, finishing as the top Michigan
runner in every cross country meet.
The Scottville native finished eighth in
the Big Ten and claimed five Michigan
records during her sophomore year.
"Melanie has been called ouir, All-
American candidate because we feel
she is very close to making it. I would
think she would make it this year, if not
in cross country then track ... possibly
both," commented Goodridge.
ALSO RETURNING from last year is
junior Lisa Larsen who started her
athletic career at Michigan as a swim-
mer but has since changed her devotion
to track. During the 1980 season Larsen
finished 12th in the Springbank event, a
race with more than 230 entries. She is
also considered one of the most im-
proved runners on the team.
The freshmen are also making their
mark on the squad already. Judy Yuhn,
of Milford, finished in a scoring position
during her first collegiate meet when
she placed sixth in last weekend's meet.
WHILE THE season started on the
right foot, the rest of the campaign is
still up in the air. "It wouldn't be fair
for me to predict (the outcome of the
Big Ten)," Goodridge noted. "When
other teams lose runners they just seem
to pick up three freshmen."
The Wolverines will have their first
major test this weekend when they
travel to Lexington to compete in the
Kentucky Invitational. The meet will be
the first chance for Goodridge to see
another Big Ten team when they face
off against Purdue, which finished
among the top three teams in the con-
ference last year.
After Kentucky, the cross country
team will continue with road trips, sin-
ce its schedule is void of any home
meets. On September 27 they will travel
to London, Ontario to compete in the
Springbank Invitational. This meet will
also be the opening event for the men's,
cross country squad.

Slowing down is more than just a safer
way to drive. It's also a great way to save
gas and money.
You'll get about 20 more miles from
every tank of gas if you drive 55 mph instead
of 70 mph on the highway. That's like getting
a 6c discount on every gallon of gas! And
it's just one of the easy ways you can save
" Keep your car well-tuned and you'll
save about 4C on every gallon of gas.
" Keep your tires properly inflated and
you'll save 2 on every gallon.
Think about it. If you use all these
simple gas-saving techniques, it's like
getting a 15C discount on every gallon
