CALGARY, Alba. (AP) - Brent
Rushlaw, a four-time U.S. Olympic
bobsledder, came within a tick of a
clock of winning a medal Sunday as
time ran out on America at the
Winter Olympics.
The United States won a paltry
six medals, the same number taken
by Netherlands and Finland.
This was the worst American
showing since 1936, when the U.S.
took home only four of the available
51 medals.
For the Soviets, it was the best
Winter Olympics ever with 28
medals out of a possible 138.
For America, the competition
was dismal and distressing, but not
- Eric Flaim, the speed skater,
won one silver medal and finished
fourth three times, missing out on
three more medals by a total of 6 and
one-half seconds.
- Pam Fletcher suffered a broken
leg before she could compete in the
women's downhill ski race.
- Josh Thompson, a world cham-
pionship silver medalist in biathlon,
went away without a top 10 finish,
confused and disheartened.
- Figure skater Debi Thomas had
a chance for victory Saturday as she
dueled with East German Katarina
Witt, both their routines set to the
music of the tragic French opera
"It wasn't supposed to happen, I
guess," Thomas said after nearly
falling three times and falling from
possible gold to bronze. "But I
"I don't even want to come back
right at this moment," Thompson
said. "But my attitude will change."
That seemed to sum it up. The
next Winter games are at Albertville,
France, four years away. And that's a
lot of time.

gold medal in the women's 500-meter race and the bronze in the 1000-

year's Winter Olympics.

An Equal Opportunity Employer

(June 30-August 16)
Earn EIGHT HOURS of University credit for studying Introductory Geology in the Rocky Mountains, including:
e Yellowstone National Park " Grand Tetons * Dinosaur National Monument
" Craters of the Moon e Flaming Gorge
This ideal "outdoor classroom" offers some of the most scenic and interesting geology in the entire Rocky Mountain region. Mountain
uplifts and deep erosion have exposed a variety of Earth structures and rocks of diverse age and origin. The effects of alpine glaciation,
landslides, stream erosion, and a host of other geological phenomena provide an unmatched introduction to geology. The geological
history of the Teton, Gros Ventre, and Wind River mountain ranges is fully recorded in a sequence of fossiliferous rocks which in
many cases can be interpreted in terms of processes still at work today.
The University of Michigan field course is taught at Camp Davis a permanent facility built by the University in 1929. Camp Davis is
about 20 miles south of Jackson, Wyoming, near the junction of the Overthrust Belt, the Snake River Plain, the Wind River Range, and
the Green River Basin; the Tetons he to the north, the Gros Ventre Range to the east, and the Basin and Range Province-to the west.
It is simply an excellent place to learn about geology. The camp is located on the Hoback River near its junction with the Snake River;
the trout fishing is great.
The field camp was constructed by The University of Michigan in order to provide a teaching facility in the Rocky Mountains. Camp
Davis living quarters consist of rustic cabins with wood-burning stoves and running water. Showers and laundry facilities are shared
by students; meals are served mess-hall style in a large dining room. Camp facilities include classrooms, a first-aid station, a large
recreation hall, a softball diamond, and a volleyball court. Other facilities are available in Jackson; transportation to town is provided
twice a week.
Geological Sciences 116 is an in-depth course covering all aspects of geology. The thrust of this course is to teach students about minerals
and rocks in a variety of settings. Approximately two weeks of the course are spent on trips to other parts of Wyoming as well as Nevada,
Colorado, Montana, Idaho, and Utah. You will examine minerals, rocks, and fossils in their natural settings. Although lectures are a
part of the course, most of your time will be spent in the field where instruction is often on an individual basis.
The Camp Davis teaching staff consists of faculty from the Department of Geological Sciences at The University of Michigan and
visiting faculty from other universities. The course is typically staffed by three faculty members and two graduate teaching assistants.
Geological Sciences 116 carries EIGHT (8) credit hours and is equivalent to a two-term sequence of introductory geology. It satisfies the
natural science distribution requirement in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.
No prerequisites. High school seniors and university students are encouraged to apply.
Geological Sciences 116 runs for 6 weeks. The dates for the 1988 summer course will be from June 30, when the caravan leaves from
Ann Arbor, until August 16, the day that the caravan returns to Ann Arbor.
Cost, including lodging, meals, tuition, health fee, and transportation to and from Camp Davis, is $1,600 for Michigan residents and
$1,770 for all nonresidents. All class-related equipment and field vehicles connected with the course are supplied by The University
