It's that time of year again.
Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue,
the best marketing strategy since
sliced bread, has hit the newsstands.
The swimsuit edition is often
criticized for its exploitation of
women. And, while I may agree that
'Swimsuit Issue' is a euphemism for
skin magazine, that is not the
subject of this column.
My gripe is of a different nature.
Sports Illustrated is my magazine
too! And the market magicians at SI
should be attuned to my interests.
Sports Illustrated is a sports
magazine, plain and simple. It is not
a sports magazine for men, nor is it
a sports magazine for women. Just a
I RECEIVE Sports Illustrated
in the mail every week, as do many
other females I know. Sports Illus-
trated has a significant female reader-
ship, albeit a minority.
So there should be a representa-
tive amount of men appearing, in
the male equivalents of the swim-
suits the females wear, in this spe-
Male friends with whom I have
discussed this matter of the swimsuit
edition offer two arguments.
The first was something about
the swimsuits being the latest in
fashion for women and I should be
Swimsuit Issue is
only nartly there
glad to see them.
That's a good one.
WELL, IF the majority of
subscribers are men, why aren't they
treated to a preview of the up-and-
coming in men's swimwear, like we
lucky women are? It seems only fair
in this world think I want to see
women clad in transparent, nearly
non-existent bathing suits, in my
This year the swimsuit catalogue
and the sports issue are in different
magazines. So that means there is
nothing in this entire bulk of
colorful pages that I'd be interested
in. But if the magazine was half
women and half men, that would be
a different story.
NEXT YEAR, however, things
will return to normal and the two
magazines will be combined once
again, but still without men.
Now, I am not naive enough to
think that Sports Illustrated s exec-
utives would ever discontinue the
best-selling issue of any magazine.
Nor do I deny that this issue is a
brilliant economic move.
However, this issue would be an
even bigger seller if males were
included. Women who are not nor-
mally subscribers would buy a well-
done issue of male models.
I believe that equal representation
should be given to all subscribers
regarding the Swimsuit Issue. For
every female who appears in a
swimsuit, there should be a propor-
tionate amount of males in swim-
After all, my subscription costs
the same as my brother's.

Sophomore Kirk Taylor could be the answer to coach Bill Frieder's guard woes, but his
play has been inconsistent. Many people believe that Taylor's lack of playing time has
been the cause of his inconsistency.
Why not Jim Palmer?
that they, too, receive the immense
benefit of having a swim catalogue

personal favorite, I might add, went

Sophomore guard Kirk Taylor is tired, that's who.
And with Taylor's defensive effort against Michigan
State last Saturday, he may have more than a few
points to challenge his coach's assertion.
"When the coach has confidence in me, I have
confidence in myself," said Taylor, who was Ohio's
class 3A Player-of-the-Year his senior season in high
school. "It felt good to play the quality minutes that I
feel I deserve."
BECAUSE THE coaching staff has viewed
Taylor's play as inconsistent, deserving minutes have
been scarce for him this year. Taylor's Space
Mountain-like season started with an outstanding per-
formance in the Maui Classic, which the Wolverines
won. The high caliber of teams seemed to bring out
the best in Taylor as he recorded career-highs in both
points (12) and assists (6) against basketball power

For the first time since the begin-
ning of the season, the women's
indoor track team failed to continue
its streak of improvement as the
Wolverines placed third overall at the
Lady Buckeye meet in Columbus,
Ohio last Saturday.
"Our goal was to win that meet,"
Michigan coach James Henry said.
"We had some opportunities to win,
but didn't get some points from
f tough times
where we should have."
Michigan placed third, with 103
points, among a field of eight
schools. Ohio State (125 points) and
Eastern Michigan (105 points) placed
first and second respectively.
One of the problems the Wol-
verines faced was a recent bout of the
flu that kept seven team members
from competing last weekend. But,
"those that were there," Henry said,
"I thought were competitive and they
competed to the best of their ability."
Among the standouts were Mindy
Rowand, who placed first in both the
500-meter and 1000-meter races, and
Alison Smith, who captured first
place in the pentathalon.
Other strong performances for
Michigan were turned in by Dana
Davidson, with second place finishes
in the 55-meter hurdles and the
pentathalon, and by Kim Haluscsak,
who took second in the 3000-meters.
Starry Hodge finished third in the
shotput with a throw of 47-feet,
This was the first week the team
had regressed after three steady meets
of substantial improvement. There
were areas where the team didn't
improve at all. One area was in the
high jump in which Michigan failed
to place. Lisa DeVries, the team's
best high jumper had been sick all
week and was just getting better.
"Look at Kirk Taylor," said ESPN commentator
Bill Raftery, who broadcasted the Wolverines' victory
over Oklahoma in the championship game. "The guy
handled (Oklahoma's) Mookie Blaylock easily and he's
an All-American. I cannot believe he's not getting
BUT RAFTERY has not seen.Taylor since his
performance in Hawaii. Since then, Taylor has played
an occasional solid game, such as tallying 10 points
and four rebounds against Northwestern and 11 points
and five rebounds against Central Michigan. But
Frieder has not been happy with his play. He went so
far as to say last week after the Purdue game, in which
Taylor was on an up-swing, that sometimes "(Taylor)
checks in for the other team."
Against Michigan State Taylor scored only three
points. However, he helped hold Spartan guard Kirk
Manns, last week's Big Ten Player-of-the-Week, to
only 10 points. Nearing the halfway point of the Big
Ten season, Michigan is still wondering whether
Taylor will develop consistency on a game-to-game

Gymnasts' high can't top Gophers
BY MARK KATZ
Michigan women's gymnastics
coach Dana Kempthorn had con-
sidered a win at this past weekend's
dual meet at the University of
Minnesota to be a realistic pos-
sibility. But the Gophers squeezed
out a four-point victory even though
the Wolverines put together their
best overall point total of the
Michigan's 181.65 score topped
last weekend's total by over a point,
a feat which satisfied Kempthorn. "I
think the meet went really well for
us," she said. "Getting this type of
score on the road is really pleasing. I
felt the team really pulled together
on every event."
The meet was highlighted by
some record performances. Mich-
igan's Kim Crocker took fourth
place on the bars with a personal
collegiate best score of 9.15, and
junior Julie Duckworth attained a
season best on beams with a 9.3.
In addition, the team's per-
formance in the floor exercises was
"the best we've ever done." Mich-
igan averaged a 9.1- on floor
routines. Chris Furlong came in
fifth place and Angela Williams
placed third to lead the Wolverines.
While Kempthorn thought her
team could have come closer to the
Gophers, she was not too surprised
with Minnesota's high point total.
"Minnesota does this everywhere;
they gradually improve during the
season and their scores have reflected
that," she explained. "We probably
could have come closer, but we had
too many falls on bars, and that's
what hurt us."
