In this bleakest of Michigan basketb-
all seasons, head coach Bill Frieder ad-
ed another ray of hope for the future
er the weekend, as he secured a
commitment from 6-9% Detroit Cooley
center Roy Tarpley to attend Michigan.
Tarpley, who is averaging 28 points,
22 rebounds and seven blocked shots
per game for Cooley, joins 6-8 forward
Paul Jokisch of Birmingham Brother
Rice as recruits already bagged by
Frieder.
"WE'RE VERY happy to get Royy"
said Frieder. "He's very quick, p good
buper, a good shot-blocker and reboun-
, a good scorer around the basket -
and he'll give us some size up front."
Tarpley is playing his first season in
Detroit after spending his early basket-

ball days in Mobile, Alabama. He tran-
sferred to Cooley after living with his
uncle in Detroit this past summer.
While playing on a senior-dominated
team in Mobile his junior year, Tarpley
scored just six points a game, but he
sprouted two-and-a-half inches in the
off-season and is still growing.
Most Big Ten schools, as well as
Marquette and Louisville, were reported
to be interested in Tarpley, but the
lanky pivotman said the choice wasn't a
difficult one.
. "EVER SINCE I was young,
Michigan wps considered' a great
school, especially academic-wise," he
said. "I've seen the team play, and I
know what they need. They have all the
ingredients for a great team - they just
need the big guy."

Frieder has no doubts that Tarpley's
commitment will convince others to
come to Michigan.
"It certainly helps," said Frieder. -
"Right now we're looking at a good
recruiting year, and we're on the verge
of a great one."
A GREAT ONE would include the
signing of 6-9 center Robert Henderson
of Lansing Eastern, whom Freider is
recruiting to play forward. Henderson,
who nearly made his announcement
last week, has narrowed his choices to
Michigan and Michigan State and is
reportedly leaning toward the
Wolverines.
Another asset Michigan has going for
it in the recruiting wars is the play of
freshman guard Eric Turner, whom
Tarpley credits with helping to make

his decision that much easier.
"With a point guard like that, there'll
be no pro lems getting me the ball," he
said. "Hi sees the whole court real
well."
WHILE FRIEDER is planning on
using Tarpley mainly at center where
he will contend for the starting berth
with the currently injured Tim McCor-
mick, he doesn't discount the possibility
of using the recruit elsewhere.
"Roy has unlimited potential, and we
look for him to help us out any where in
the -front -line," said Frieder. "He
should add a lot of competition for all
the starting spots."
Tarpley is looking forward to helping
out wherever he can in his first season
as a Wolverine.
"I expect to play center, though I've

always wanted to
said. "I just hope
out, get it back to

play my hardest; and get used to the
Big Ten."

Every summer scores of children
lose themselves in the hobby of collec-
ting baseball cards. They often trade
for their favorite player or' team and
then spend the afternoon playing
imaginary games with their newly
acquired cards. Some people never
quite grew out of that childhood stage
and have taken on card-collecting as a
serious hobby.
A group of these big kids gathered at
the Holiday Inn West Saturday to talk,
deal, and sell at the annual'Baseball
Card Show in Ann Arbor.
"IT'S PROBABLY the fastest growing
hobby in the country,'" proudly stated
Steve Clark, a high school football
coach who travelled in from Ohio for
the event.
Clark was one of the more than 100
people who attended the show which
was mainly comprised of baseball car-
ds but also included other sports
memorabilia, such as old Michigan and
Detroit Tiger game programs. Also
among the ponular items were Bo
Derek and Dallas Cowgirl trading car-
ds. But it was the baseball cards that
everybody came to see.
Among the mocst-sought-after items at~

the convention were Lou Gehrig and
Mickey Mantle cards, which comman-
ded prices of more than $50 apiece. Un-
fortunately for the collectors, the'
biggest prize of all - a Honus Wagner
card reportedly worth $25,000 - elided
all of them.
MOST OF, THE persons gathered at
the Holiday Inn were . interested in
completing parts of their already-
expansive collections that engulfed
several tables.
Clark, -who once coached Michigan
football players Lawrence Ricks and
Paul Girgash in an all-star game, is
typical of adult baseball card collec-
tors. He began a little over one year
ago and already has every card set of
the last decade.
HE IS CURRENTLY working on
completion of 1950's and 1960's sets. He
attends an average of one card con-
vocation per week and has assembled a
collection that he estimates to be worth
more than $10,000.
"Although it's worth a lot, I have no
intention of selling it because I have
gotten too much enjoyment out of it,"
said Clark, who compares his collecting
addiction to gambling.
