BASINGER It’s nice to know that you don’t have to pick a fight to prove you can capably handle yourself. The Judo Club, formed four years ago and growing rapidly, strives to enable its members not only to enjoy the sport but in case of emergency, finding them selves quite capable of defending themselves. Judo, often described as the art of yielding to an opponent’s greater strength to defeat him, is based on jiu-jitsu, an ancient Jap anese form of self-defense. In the late 19th century, Dr. Jigoro Kano of Tokyo modified the lethal forms of jiu-jitsu into his own system which he called judo, which literally means “the gentle way.” With the establish ment of Kanos’ school, the Kodo- kan, or the ruling body of Kodo- can Judo spread throughout the world including to Texas A&M. THIS YEAR’S Judo Club is sponsored by Lt. Col. Thomas F. Hines and has as its president Donald Monroe. Lewis Herring ‘500’ Priest Never Seen Wheel Turn INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. UP)—A quarter-century at the Indianap olis 500-mile auto race but he’s never seen a wheel turn. The Rev. Leo Lindaman, priest at St. Christopher’s Catholic Church in the town of Speedway, has stationed himself at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway hospital for every Memorial Day race since 1937. “I never made myself a nuisance,” said the 69-year-old Father Lindaman. “I just try to stay nearby. If they need me, they’ll find me.” He was referring to drivers, car owners, mechanics, their wives and children. Father Lindaman, who built the church named for the patron saint of travel, wasn’t an avid race fan before moving to the parish from Martin County, Ind. “I used to enjoy listening to the races on the radio, but I wasn’t a particular fan,” he said. “However, my first year here I was at the track every day dur ing the month of May.” Despite the grim task of ad ministering last rites to drivers, the stately white-haired priest has high praise for the race and its car safety innovations—seat belts, brakes, tires—which are tested at the track and trans ferred to the highway. “There haven’t been that many drivers killed,” said Father Lind aman. “I’ve been at race after race without an injury. If driv ers observe the rules, there’s rarely an accident. The same thing holds true on the highway.” Father Lindaman has blessed cars, drivers, owners and me chanics during practice and qualifications for many years. He has presented St. Christo pher’s medals. He has even married a few of the racing breed. But he pre-race assistant, has turned most of the activities over to his the Rev. Paul Richart. 1 1 1 DON’T DON’T DON’T MIND MIND MIND EITHER meeting of the don’t minds If you don’t mind having all the details of planning a banquet or convention taken care of for you, call Ramada Inn.

RAMADA INN Bryan-College Station 846-8811 is this year’s secretary treasurer and Donald Scafe is the vice pres ident. Herring, who holds a green belt, explained that judo is a sci entific sport in which every ac tion has a meaning. It is an art which lets a man of little strength defeat a man of greater strength through skill and technique. “Judo and jiu-jitsu are very dif ferent,” Herring said. Jiu-jitsu and judo are confused many times and are thought of as the same thing. Herring stressed that where jiu-jitsu employs methods of reckless aggression, judo is relatively free from danger and is engaged in for sport and recre ation. The different colored belts rep resent the varying amount of pro ficiency which an individual has attained. The black belt marks the highest achievement in the sport. There are three different classes of the brown belts. The green belt is the next in line of descending proficiency and the white belt is worn by the novice. THE JUDO Club offers to its members a chance of obtaining any kind of belt or grade includ ing a black belt. The club fol lows the methods and rules as prescribed in Kodocan Judo. This kind of Judo is the oldest and most popular form. “Kodocan Judo is the largest and most recognized official school of Judo,” Herring noted. He added that all holders of black belts in Kodocan Judo are offi cially recognized and registered with the Kodocan. In striving to improve the Ju do Club, Herring said that it is now trying for official recognition by the Kodocan. “We require exactly what is required in Japan,” Herring said. In doing this Herring added that the possibilities of being recog nized by the Kodocan is greatly increased. The Judo Club is fortunate to have the assistance of two black belt holders. Dr. William Blan ton of the Department of Ocean ography and Chan Ho Han, a native of Korea who is attending graduate school. BLANTON teaches classes on Monday’s, Wednesday, and Fri days from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Han also occasionally attends to give help to those members requesting it. j On Wednesdays, those desiring to attempt to gain a higher belt are tested by the higher ranking members. In attempting to earn a higher belt, the individual being tested must execute a prescribed number of intricate hold-downs and throws. He must also show his overall mastery of the sport by performing in a match against an opponent of the grade belt he is trying to earn. The better members of the club also compete in various contests. Last semester, the contest team made a trip to the Texas State Judo Tournament. The only drawback to further expansion of the club is the limi tation of funds. “DUES are only $2 a semes ter,” Herring said. He added that the club is interested in tak ing on as many new members as possible at the beginning of each semester. The costume worn by the mem bers of the club is called the Judo- gi. It is about the only major expense incurred by those enter ing the club. “We provide a service to all members by ordering the gi’s and getting a discount for them,” Herring explained. The approxi mate cost of the gi is about $10. AS FOR the future, Herring expressed an air of optimism by pointing to the increased organiz ation of the club. “We have a great potential for next year,” Herring emphasized. “We have good teachers and a good program.” jjjp, Vote For FRANK J.
