members of the board, and mem-
bers of Congress will hold a news
conference at 3 p.m. EST in the
Capitol to mate the report public.
Details of the panel's recom-
mendations are being kept secret

office said: "It is a final, definit-
lve, summary judicial report ruling
on every last point in contention.
"The board says here is our re-
port, it is binding and this is what
we rule," he said. "The report
couldn't be more decisive."
Archibald Cox, former solicitor,
general, a board member, and a
Harvard law professor, will explain
the legality of the report and what
was called "their binding nature"
an the groups who now control

The .dick Vidmer Story
Graduating college football players with urofessional ambitions
had a right to be a bit nervous yesterday.
Dick Vidmer, '68, sat quietly in his room. "Oh, the pro draft? No,
I hadn't heard about it. What happened?"

Stabler in the second . . . quarterbacks with Heisman Trophy creden-

Dick Vidmer will "probably go to Michigan grad school next
year, unless I end up doing something else . .. ." He doesn't say
what that might be. But you get the feeling that your guess is as
good as his.
Yesterday was a day when you could roll down your lar windows,
fand it almost seemed a little like summer , It is August, and
sweltering Ferry Field finds Dick Vidmer in a blue jersey directing
the Wolverines in practice . . he is a pre-season All-America in the
eyes of many . . . the Michigan quarterback in the eyes of all.
January and the pro draft are many months away - a football
season away, a season which promises to establish Vidmer as one of
the top passers in the country, and assure him a spot in the hearts,
and pocketbooks, of Vince Lombardi, Joe Schmidt, George Halas . . . .
"In retrospect and looking at it objectively, you'd have to say
the coaches made the right decision," Vidmer decides, and then
repeats it again as if to convince himself as much as anyone else.
"They had to make a change when they did . . . they had to
do something to get the team moving ... the offense did pick up after-
wards . . . I don't know if it meant we won any more games, but it
probably did . . . the coaches like to go with one set of guys the whole
time to give them a sense of security . . . I think I still could have
helped in spots..."
But for all practical purposes bne bad game-Michigan State, the
third game of the season-and that was it. No action, just headphones.
No dirty jerseys, except in practice. No blue jerseys, except at game
time. No glory, just "Whatever happened to . . .."
"... Dick Vidmier, numbei 27, replaces Dennis Brown at
quarterback for Michigan. The Wolverines lead Wisconsin 27-14
with but minutes to go . . . " and Vidmer is listed in the official
statistics for the fourth and last time in 1967.

"I'm not sure how it happened," Vidmed shrugs. "I must have
thrown too much.. I threw all winter, all spring, and all summer..
and ended up with a limp, dead arm. I couldn't throw the ball as hard *
and crisp this fall as before .. . my arm just deadened out on me."
Vidmer had always been rated an extremely accurate passer..
"I was still fairly accurate this year. Inexperienced receivers didn't

ago had been slowed as a runner . . . . "I just wasn't a good !
runner this year. Even last year I ran fairly well toward the end
of the season. When I came here I fit well into the scheme of
sprint-out passing, because I was quick and could run, but then
I got hurt .... I'd be better as a drop-back passer, because I'd
have more time to set up, but Bump will never coach drop-back
passing . .. it's a question of fitting the material to the scheme,
rather than the scheme to the material .... I just didn't fit this 1
