Defenseman Todd Carlile of the
Michigan hockey team was hospitalited
Friday for treatment of a knee infection
he suffered late last week. The af-
flication forced him to miss last
weekend's series with Western
Michigan.
According to team sources, Carlile,
whose knee was drained over the
weekend, could be released as early as
today. He probably will see action this
weekend against Michigan State.
The problem started last Wednesday
when Carlile got a friction burn on his
knee from a new shin pad. It later
became infected.

Squid at Yost?...
... A hard act to swallow
By TIM MAKINEN
HE FIRST PHONE call came about two weeks ago. It was the same day
.in which a story I had written about the Michigan hockey team appeared
in the Daily.
"I really liked your story," the female voice on the other end of the line
said. "But why didn't you put anything in there about throwing squid on the
ice? I want to see something about squid."
Squid?
It was certainly a strange request. I had once seen squid served at a well-
known restaurant in Detroit's Greektown, so I could easily understand why a
person would willingly toss the sea creature out onto the ice. I, for one, would
rather toss it anywhere than onto a plate.
But this fish story went a lot deeper than someone's gastronomical
preferences.
It seems that Detroit Red Wings' fans have a long-standingtradition of lof-
ting octopi onto the ice whenever thee Wings clinch the playoffs. No one
is really sure why they do this, and of course, no one has done it in recent years as the
Dead Things' fortunes have plummeted. Yet in 1978, when the Red Wings
last made the playoffs, literally dozens of octopi splattered the ice of Olym-
pia Stadium.
Recalling this bit of Red Wing trivia, I asked my caller if she had ever met
a life-long friend of mine - a friend who had a penchant for imitating Red
Wing color commentator Sid Abel- and saying, "Well Bruce, the fans are
throwing squid on the ice."
Yes, she had met my friend. And yes, he had mistakenly told her that Red
Wing fans threw squid. 'Maybe she wanted Michigan fans to do the same. The
Michigan hockey team had no such tradition, however, and I wasn't about to
make one up.
A week later, I received another call. Once again, the caller (whose name,
I discovered; was Nannette) was angry that a story of mine again made no
reference to squid.
That did it. I was angry too., What Nannette failed' to realize was that
although the Daily is a student operated publication, the people here attempt
to be professional, responsible journalists.
As a case in point, just the other day the president of the Michigan Bowling
Club, Chris Nesbitt, called me up. Nesbitt, wanted to inform me that he had
bowled his first 300 game, and to see if I could get it in the Daily.
Without hesitation, I replied, "No." Nesbitt bowled the perfect game in a
men's league, and consequently it had nothing to do with Michigan athletics.
To put it in the paper would be unethical. Likewise, no squid was going to ap-
pear in one of my hockey stories.
With that thought firmly in mind, I headed off to Yost Ice Arena last
Saturday night to cover Michigan's contest against Western Michigan.
Know vour -auIeiWlce
Perhaps it was the bitter-cold Ann Arbor weather that cleared my mind,
but I found myself recalling a bit of advice countless numbers of English
teachers had pounded into my head - know the audience for whom, you are
writing. For this writer, that task was easy.
Among my readership I included my relatives, fellow sports writers,
probably the hockey players, and those people fortunate enough to have my
stories forced upon them. I forgot one person, though. That person was Nan-
nette.
Okay, I rationalized, it might be alright to put something in the story con-
cerning the heaving of squid onto the playing surface.
As the game progressed, however, it became apparent that the Wolverines
probably would have preferred pillows to squid. Michigan looked tired all
evening and was whipped by Western, 7-1. Other than a goal by John Bjork-
man, the next closest Michigan came to scoring was when left-winger Paul
Spring accidently tried to stuff Bronco goalie Glenn Healy into the net. Healy
only hit the goal post, which was indicative of the Wolverines scoring chan-
ces all night.
The bottom line was that there was no place for squid in the story.
With lhumble apologies
At this time then, I feel obliged to use this space to meet the demands of
my readers. I readily admit that this is unethical and preteisious.
Please insert the following after the first paragraph of the hockey story
that.appeared in the Daily, January 22,1984:
No one in the crowd of 2,937 threw squid onto the ice.
Enjoy it Nannette. Like a squid hitting the hard ice surface, I won't have
the guts to do it again.

If the synchronized swim team is -any
indication, the label "club spol-t" does
not by definition imply a lack of talent.
The team, which two years ago had
its varsity status revoked, opened its
season January 14 by sinking Michigan
State, Ohio State, and Alma College.
Michigan's points were enough to edge
out second-place MSU by four points,
followed by the Buckeyes with 17 and
Alma with six.
MICHIGAN EARNED the victory by
placing first in the junior and novice
divisions and second in the sehior
division. Divisions are differentiated
by degree of difficulty.
In the senior division, Erin
O'Shaughnessy and Sandy Pawelak
finished third and sixth, respectively.
Penny Herchey won the individual
junior contest, and Kathy Schultz made

it two out of three for Michigan by
taking first in the novice division.
The meet was what swimmers refer
to as a "figures meet:" Participants
perform a battery of compulsive exer-
cises before a panel of judges and are
awarded points accordingly. Usually
synchronized swim r: gf0rsist of the
individual' figures npetition,
followed by original routines perofor-
med by groups of swimmers.
THE NEXT MAJOR event on the
Michigan itinerary is a regional meet
hosted by the Wolverines March 10.
This meet promises to bring most of the
top 10 synchronized swim teams to Ann
Arbor. The nationals, to be held in
Tuscon, Ariz. take place March 24.
Despite facing all varsity teams in the
nationals last year, the Michigan squad
placed third.

opponents,
This year's meet will look quite the
same, with Michigan competing as a
club sport, and that status is not a
popular one with the team.
"We were one of the first women's
sports teams at U. of M. to receive var-
sity status," remarked team member
Dara Boyer. "And then it was taken
away. Even so, we had a good season
last year, and we're looking forward to
another good one this year, Meantime,
'we're hoping to become a varsity sport
again."
Whether or not that actually happens
depends upon the decision of an athletic
appeal board currently reviewing the
case. If the team continues to defeat
varsity teams, however, it would seem
that its return to the varsity ranks
would not be denied."
