Michigan has won its share of lopsided games this
year. It has routed a few teams and embarassed
others. But it was not until yesterday that the
Wolverines pulled the ultimate in one-sided victories.
They scored and scored and scored so much
yesterday against Wayne State that the Ray Fisher
Stadium scoreboard ran out of numbers.
MICHIGAN whipped, beat, and creamed the Tar-
tars so badly, it exceded the nineteen run scoreboard
limit, winning 21-1.
The game got so out of hand that coach Bud Mid-
daugh actually used team manager and sixth-string
catcher Buddy Dodge to pinch-hit and freshman pit-
cher Jim Agemy at first base.
Apropriately, both players responded with
THE CHANCE to use the bench was in fact one of
the best things about yesterday's snoozer.
"It's nice to play all your players," Middaugh
said, "because we had an awful tough weekend and
played a lot of ball. You play in this kind of weather
and it takes a lot out of your people. And when you get
in a situation where you can utilize your bench, it's
good for team morale."
Team morale was certainly high against Wayne
State. The Wolverines batted around four times,
weaving their rallies into a symmetric pattern.
Michigan knocked in six runs each in the second and
eighth innings. The Wolverines scored four times in
both the third and seventh innings, and to balance out
the scoring pattern, they scored one in the fifth.
Michigan pounded out 22 hits, including 13 extra-
base blows. The extra-base breakdown read nine
doubles, one triple and three home runs.
TWO PLAYERS, Mike Watters and Ken Hayward,
were just one hit away from hitting for the cycle.
Watters needed a home run while Hayward was

lacking a triple. Hayward, however, could be
forgiven since he only played the first four innings.
Hitting was not the only overpowering force the
Tartars had to deal with. Michigan pitchers Casey
Close and John Grettenberger limited Wayne State to
just one hit.
Close was particularly impressive, pitching six
scoreless innings and allowing one single. Close had a
no-hitter until the sixth when Tartar catcher Christos
Geogvassilis grounded a ball off reserve shortstop
Jeff Kiel's glove. The hit could have been easily
scored an error. But with the game so far out of hand,
Close said he was not upset about the scoring
decision. A no-hitter is not so amazing when your own
teammates are scoring 21 runs.
"IT KIND of got taken out ofthe spirit because we
were ahead so much," Close said. "It made it a little

workout on the mound this year. The junior right-

hander was a regular on the staff last season but has

Close untracked.

think he's capable of being," Middaugh said. "He just

Survey shows Canham is best A.D.

The awards and honors keep piling up for
Michigan Athletic Director Don Canham.
Canham was voted the nation's top athletic
director in a poll published Monday by The
Arizona Republic. He received 81 points to

Washington's Mike Lude, who had only 28

The Michigan baseball team likes to think of
itself as a cohesive group - a family almost. But
while the Wolverines hesitate to admit it, there
exists a four-tier hierarchy on the team.
At the top you have the regulars, like Barry
Larkin and Kurt Zimmerman. Following them
are the key reserves, like Eddie Woolwine and
Hal Morris, and then the pine warmers, such as
Paul Wenson. But even below the bench-sitters
there exists another group - the student
small, semi-talented group that submits itself to
handling the team's equipment chores in hope of
someday making the team. Managers get the
bats and balls and bases in place, dreaming of
playing part-time in a couple of years. But
yesterday, one managers dream came true a lot
earlier than expected.
In the seventh inning of Michigan's 21-1
blowout of Wayne State, coach Bud Middaugh
decided to reward sophomore Buddy Dodge 'for
his two years of dedicated service. He called
Dodge over and told him to bat for outfielder
Chris Gust.
Fellow manager John Fleisig jumped to his
feet when he saw his pal step into the batter's box
with runners on first and second. He watched
tensely as Dodge, listed as a sixth-string catcher,
fell behind on two quick strikes. But when Dodge

singled to right - an opposite field line drive that
was hit so hard the man on second couldn't score
- Fleisig jumped, hooted and hollered.
"WHO NEEDS Chrysler when we got Dodge?"
Flesig shouted.
Fleisig was thrilled, but understandably
Dodge was even happier.
"I was just tremendously happy," Dodge said,
smiling euphorically. "It was one of the things
that I really wanted bad. I'm just really happy,
and I'm just really thankful, and ... boy, I don't
know how to tell ya."
I'm just really happy, and
I'm just really thankful,
and ... boy, I don't know
how to tell ya.'
-Student Manager
Buddy Dodge
Dodge said he feels like part of the team for the
first time.
"I just sit and watch everybody else contribute
to the team, but then something like this happens
to me. Now I feel I've contributed a little bit to
some of the success that we've had this year."

than I am, so it's flattering," Canham said.
The only other Big Ten athletic director
who received votes on more than two ballots
was Ohio State's Rick Bay, a former
Michiganwrestling coach.
Canham said receiving honors like this is
what keeps him going. "I've had a few
problems in the last year and sometimes
you get discouraged," he said. "Everyone
wants to get appreciated. If I said that I
didn't get a kick out of it, I'd be lying to you.
It's satisfying if nothing else."
Canham has been the top man in the
athletic department since 1968. He became a
part of the administration in 1948 when he
was chosen head track coach. He is only the
fifth athletic director in Michigan history.

pleased that Rose was rewarded for his
hard work this season. "Mitch making
the NCAA indicates the amount of ef-
fort he has put into the sport," said
Darden. "It is a big honor for him."
If Rose performs to his potential,
Darden feels Rose could place highly.
"Mitch could be among the- upper
echelon of competitors in the rings if he
has good routines," said Darden. "The

Although it would be nice, Rose
doesn't expect to win an NCAA title. He
is just looking forward to competing
against the most talented gymnasts in

Rowers top one event
plMichigan's rowing club managed to
place first in one of five events last
weekend at Eagle Creek Resevoir in
Indianapolis, Ind. The novice men's
lightweight eight 'A' team finished
ahead of Witchita State and the light-
weight eight 'B' team.
a Both the novice and the varsity men's
heavyweight eight rowed to second
hplace finishes, both behind Purdue and
-?ahead of Kansas University.
It could have been the rough and
choppy waters that left the novice and

behind University of Kansas and Pur-

Michael Cook announced yesterday
that he was maintaining "the court's
denail to supress evidence."
SKILES, a starting guard for the
Spartans, is charged with possession of
marijuana and possession of a con-
trolled substance. His trial is scheduled
to begin April 16.
Defense attorney Charles Scruggs of
Kokomo had made the motion to
supress evidence, claiming it was ob-
tained illegally.
The charges were filed last Septem-
ber. Plymouth city policeman Jose
Duenex testified at an earlier hearing
that on the night of Aug.29 he found and

questioned Skiles in a car parked on the
lawn of the officer's mother.
He said that after Skiles identified
himself, he voluntarily gave the officer
a plastic bag containing marijuana and
later gave him a bag containing one in-

Skiles, who led Plymouth High School
to the 1982 Indiana high school basket-
ball championship, has claimed the
drugs did not belong to him.

drunken driving.

Is passive smoking more
than a minor nuisance
or real annoyance?.
That's a broad and vague statement being made in a nation-wide, multi-
million dollar campaign by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.
For. those who are fortunate not to have a chronic lung or heart disease,
who don't suffer from allergies, or who may not have an acute respiratory
illness that may be true. However, medical evidence is conclusive: passive
smoking is injurious to a large number of individuals - young and old, rich
and poor, and from any ethnic group.

Smoking is legal, no question about that.
But who has the right i a" public place to
give some innocent bystander what the to-
bacco industry down plays as a "minor nui-
sance" or "real annoyance"?
According to the tobacco industry, smok-
ing is a personal decision made by adults.
Unfortunately the sidestream smoke from a
cigarette, pipe or cigar becomes public, af-
fecting everyone around, and therefore
should be subject to certain rules, controls
and laws to protect people in public places.
If we can have laws to protect us from
outdoor air pollution, why -,t for indoor
pollution from toxic tobacco smoke?

The tobacco industry complains about nonsmokers: "Total strang ers feel
free to abuse us verbally in public without warning." That's usually the re-
sult when someone assaults another, and being forced to breathe another's
tobacco smoke is considered assault.
The majority of Americans are nonsmokers. There's something wrong
with the system when those in the minority can have such a drastic effect
on the majority ... and that's what so often happens when smokers' sides-
tream smoke invades the public air space of nonsmokers.
