'M' tumblers roll over Kent State
By SCOTT G. MILLER
It was a weekend of personal and
team bests for the men's gymnastics
The tumblers defeated Kent State
269.5-265.45 on Friday. The team score
was the squad's highest in the last two
"IT WAS AN outstanding meet for
us," said Michigan coach Bob Darden.
"The parallel bars and the pommel
horse have been thorns in our side all
season. Our scores in these events were
consistent across the board against
Kent State, and this factor really in-
creased our team score."
The Wolverines' score was also
helped by the performance of the fifth
and sixth members of the team whose
scores usually make the difference in
the final outcome of a meet.
"Steve Scheinman, Ken Haller, and
Nick Lanphier are our trench workers
like offensive linemen in a football
game," commented Darden. "These
guys set the base scores and break the
ice on each event. They are unsung
WITH THE "table setters" doing so
well, the team's top members perfor-
med to their capabilities. Mitch Rose
set three new career high scores. They
included a 55.25 in the all-around which
was good for second place, a 9.25 on the
parallel bars which tied him for first
place, and a 9.75 on the ring which put
him in first place for that event.
"Mitch had a super meet," said Dar-
den. "We were banking on Mitch doing
well so we seeded him in better
positions in the lineup. The moves gave
him more confidence and really paid
Rose's high scores also should help
him in his quest to qualify for the 1985
Maccabain World Championships in
Israel. Rose is currently in fifth place
nationally, and his weekend perfor-
mance may boost his rank.
ROSE'S TEAMMATE Gavin
Meyerowitz had another great meet.
Meyerowitz had a 55.9 in the all-around
and a 9.75 on the pommel horse. Both of
these scores were personal bests and
good for first place finishes.
Meyerowitz also had a 9.25 on the
parallel bars to tie him for first place
with Rose and a 9.35 in the floor exer-
cise to take second place.
"Gavin showed great consistency,
and he is knocking on the door of
scoring a 56 in the all-around which is a
world class score," said Darden. "If he
can just clean up the small tenth of a
point deductions, he could get his 56."
Other personal bests were registered
by Craig Ehle, Greg Nelson, and Scott
Moore. Ehle had a 9.2 in the rings,
Nelson had a 9.55 in the horizontal bar,
and Moore had a 9.55 in the vault.
The tumblers are peaking at the right
time of the season with the Big Ten
championship coming up in two weeks

A little patriotism can go a longway in sports.
Anyone who is old enough to have seen any Olympic
competition is aware of that. There are many who
claim that the miracle at Lake Placid in 1980 was a
case studyin the effects of nationalism.
Hockey is a tough sport with men in armor
following a puck that travels at speeds close to the
sound barrier. Therefore it's no surprise that
emotions can run high when athletes are playing
hockey under theirown flag.
But what about a more gentlemanly sport such as
tennis? Tennis is just a sport for those polite men and
women who prance around the country clubs sipping
glasses of wine and Perrier. Even the scoring in ten-
nis lends itself to pacifism and etiquette. In what
other sport is there a hint of reference to love?
Don't talk to John McEnroe about etiquette. While
playing for the United States in Davis Cup com-
petition last fall, McEnroe waved his middle finger
around as though it was an American flag. His ac-
tions received public reprimand from a Davis Cup
sponsor, but the issue quickly died down.
McEnroe is not the only-athlete guilty of spreading
an ugly gesture in the name of his country. Just last

How the Competition Works ...
Send for our brochure and "The Problem" - a state-
ment of facts. It is not a real case. Your job is to argue.
your position in the case in an effort to persuade the
judges that your "client" should win. You are NOT
expected to do any legal research - this is like an argu-
ment to a jury. You should present your view of the facts
in the light most favorable to your client. Don't change
the facts and don't exaggerate, Just show how fairness,
justice, reason and common sense are all on your side ...
The Cooley Law School Advocacy
Why an 4dvocacy Competition? Well, for starters, Cooley
Law School is devoted to practical scholarship in the law.
This means we recognize the educational value of a variety
of learning experiences - not just the classroom. The
Advocacy Competition, like the Advocacy program you
would encounter as a Cooley student, is a means of pro-
moting the argument skills you will need as an attorney.
In fact, if/you're considering a career as a lawyer, you can
anticipate spending a lot of time on your feet "making your
case."First as a law student, then as a practitioner, you'll be
speaking out in an effort to persuade professors, judges and
juries that your side should win. Your persuasive skills will
make you a better law student and a better lawyer. We're
giving you a chance to be rewarded for your ability.
Finally, Cooley Law School is a place where leadership
skills are enhanced, and effective public speaking is the
trademark of a leader. In law, business, politics, education,
religion - any profession and in every city and state in the
U.S. - the people who will affect public opinion are the
people who can be heard and understood.
The Cooley Law School Advocacy Competition may be
your first step to a lifetime of law and leadership.
