Gains 12 More Gold Medals
In Gynnastics, Wrestling


Wichita, Nebraska To Present Threat
To Wolverine Five in Weekend Games

Games, dedicated to good will
among nations, went into the next
to last day of competition today
with an outbreak of bitter pro-'
tests and bickerings as the Soviet
Union surged past the United
States in the unofficial team
American officials conceded to
the Soviets' "greater depth" after
Russia's gymnastic precisionists
and muscle men of the mat un-
leashed a landslide of gold medal
triumphs which sent them into
an insurmountable point lead.

Barry MacKay, Michigan tennis
star, has been invited to play in
the Mid Winter Sugar Bowl
Tournament at New Orleans.
MacKay will compete- with 16,

The Russians won seven gold
medals in men's gymnastics and
five in wrestling for their biggest
day of the games while America's
36-year-old domination of the
men's high diving board was brok-
en by Mexico's Joaquin Capilla.
The diving result provoked a
strong protest from Karl Michael,
U.S. diving coach, who criticized
the judging of Hungarian and
Russian scorekeepers.
Other Protests
This was just one of the out-
bursts during a day marked by
rancor and disputes.
At West Melbourne Stadium
where Russian gymnasts rallied to
beat out the Japanese for top
honors, Tom Maloney, an Ameri-
can judge from the U.S. Military
Academy, said: "The Japanese
got a real fleecing. I never saw
such unfair judging. To my mind
the Japanese are the best gym-
nasts in the world."
Previously bitter protests had
been lodged at both boxing and
wrestling events where victory or
defeat depends on the judgement
of officials in scorecards, and in
weightlifting where U.S. Coach
Bob Hoffman openly said "the
jury of appeal is stacked in favor
of the Russians and against the
Lyman .Bingham, executive di-
rector of the U.S. Olympic Com-
mittee, kept his comments mild
and attributed Russia's success to
greater emphasis on minor sports,
such as gymnastics and wrestling.

A tough weekend doubleheader
faces the Michigan basketball
squad, featuring contests at Wichi-
ta (Kansas) tonight and Nebraska
tomorrow night.
* Ron Kramer, captain and cen-
ter of the Blue, will appear in the
Wichita game, but then plans to
fly to New York to attend the
party for Look Magazine's All-
American football team, of which
he is a member. This will make it
impossible for him to see action
at Nebraska.
Besides Kramer, those making
the trip include the probable'start-
ing five-forwards Randy Tarrier

and M. C. Burton, guards George
Lee and Jimmy Shearon and cen-
ter Pete T il1 o t s o n - and Billy
Wright, Hank Gualtieri, Bob Dun-

Seven, could also give the Wolver-

Among their main returnees are
forward Don Smidt, who tallied 17

Due to the uncertainty of flying
conditions, the cagers were forced
to cancel their plane reservations
and leave by early train yesterday
afternoon for Wichita.

"equalization" is a step in the

right direction, but said it wasn't
all he would like.

Ice hockey is viewed by many
as the world's greatest spectator
It is an easy sport to understand
once you learn the meaning of
"off side" and "icing the puck,"
plus a few other rules. %
There are several off-side plays.
A .player is off-side if (1) he is
over the opponent's glue line and
receives a pass from a teammate
who is not over the blue line. (2)
If a player skates over the oppo-
NHL Score
Detroit 3, Boston 2
nent's blue line before the puck
carrier crosses it.
When an off-side occurs play
is whistled down and there is a
face off in the guilty team's zone.
Icing the puck is another of the
features of the game which might
prove confusing at first. If the

teams are at equal strength and!
a player shoots from his side ofj
the blue line and the puck passesI
over the opponent's red goal line
and it is touched by an opponent
the play is called back for "icing
the puck."
The puck is not "iced" if it is
touched by the opposing goalie;
if a goal is scored direct, or if the
puck is passed to a teammate who
tries and cannot reach it. A team
below the numerical strength of
its opponent may "ice" the puck
at any time from any place.
It is interesting to note the pen-

alties in a hockey game. There aret
three classes of penalties . . . (1))
Minor-Two minutes in the pen-1
alty box for any player, other than
a goalie, no substitute allowed .. .
(2) Major-players other than
goalie, five minutes in the penalty
box, no substitute allowed . . . (3)
Misconduct - All players except;
goalie, ten minutes in the penalty
On a misconduct penalty a sub-
stitute player is permitted for im-
mediate replacement because the
penalty is against the player and
not against the team.

The Applied Physics Laboratory
(APL) of The Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity is a unique organization.
Its professional staff, including
both junior and senior members,
is allowed a measure of responsi-
bility and initiative much greater
than in many other research and
development organizations. A
stimulating environment where
teamwork and individual initiative
are fused results in a high degree
of creativeness and professional
For years APL has pioneered:
the first proximity fuze, the first
supersonic ramjet engine, the mis-
siles TERRIER, TALOS and
TARTAR. With a staff of 1275
APL technically directs the Navy's
Bumblebee guided-missile pro-
gram, including the work of 21
associate and subcontractors,
among them leading universities
and industrial organizations.

Location & Facilities:
The.combined facilities of APL
and its contractors provide staff
members with an unparalleled sit-
uation for advanced research and
development. APL's own labora-
tories, recently completed, encom-
pass 350,000 sq. ft. Their locations
in suburban Washington and Bal-
timore, Md. allow staff members to
enjoy suburban, rural or urban
living and the manifold cultural
