Executive Sports Editor
It just wasn't a page out of the
Wolverine style book.
Sure, Purdue wins football games
in the last minute, and Silky
Sullivan always won horse races
on the home stretch, and Florida
State's Steve Spurrier never start-
ed connecting until the second
half. But the come-from-behind
method is so unconventional.
The Michigan eleven always pre-
ferred to build up a big lead early,
and either build on it, hold it, or
desperately see it vanish in the
closing seconds of play. This of-
fensive plan was becoming as tra-
ditional as Yost Field House.
But Yost may have seen its last
basketball game.
And the Wolverines may have
discovered a new way of winning
as they fought and scraped their
wvay to a 10-7 triumph over the
Duke Blue Devils, the final mar-
gin of victory coming in the form
of a 27-yard field goal by sopho-
more Frank Titas with only 11
seconds remaining.
It had gotten to the point where

Michigan fans had developed a
field goal complex. The mere men-
tion of the term would bring
groans in the stands, and recol-
lections of a Wolverine attdmpt
hitting the crossbar, skirting
harmlessly along the erid zone
turf, or sailing wide to the right.
Enemy successes didn't help the
Michigan state of mind, either.
The three-pointer had made her-
oes of Ohio State's Bob Funk,
Purdue's Bob Griese and all too
many others.
Attempting a field goal early in
the third quarter, Titas, who was
making his first varsity appear-
ance, sailed a line drive under the
cross bar from 30 yards out.
Whatever faith there may have
been in the kicking game ebbed
from the stadium.
The clutch kick in the closing
minute by the Wolverine yearling,
with history against him and the
pressure valve on high, bisected
the "H," marking the rebirth of
the field goal.
"I was glad I could make it,
especially after missing the first

one." said the cool sophomore
after the contest. "I'm not quite
sure what went wrong on the first
one, and I'll say the second one
should have been better too," Ti-
tas continued.
Michigan head Coach Bump El-
liott was satisfied, however. "His
foot hit the ball high the first
time, and the contact the second
time was a little high, also. We'll
take them any way they come, as
long as they go over that bar,
though," Elliott added.
The Wolverine offense took off
with all the velocity of a Saturn
rocket time and time again, but
the Blue Devils managed to reach
the abort button five times. Michi-
gan drives sputtered to a halt on
the Duke 5, 16, 15, 27 and 39-yard
"Our offense just couldn't sus-
tain itself." Elliott noted.
"We missed some real good scor-
ing chances out there," Wolverine
quarterback Dick Vidmer concur-
red. "They certainly took a lot of
bread-and-butter plays away from
us. So many times, we would only



get one or two yards on first down.
That's what kills you," the Penn-
sylvania senior explained.
Vidmer, completing 13 tosses out
of 27 attempts, was unable to bail
the Wolverines out five times on
third down and long yardage
with his pinpoint aerials. With
Jack Clancy departed, the Michi-
gan air attack featured four tar-
gets-tight end Jim Mandich, split
end Jim Berline and halfbacks
Ernie Sharpe and Ron Johnson.
"We've got a lot more balance
this season," Vidmer said. "This
adds quite a bit of pressure to the
pass defense." The Blue Devil air
defense was supposed to make the
Nike-Zeus system look obsolete by
comparison. The Duke foursome
had held Wake Forest to five suc-
cesses in 18 attempts and only 69
yards -the week before.
Again, first indications looked
bleak for the Wolverine passing
-attack. The Wolverines opening
invasion of Duke territory was
about as successful as the Union
Army's dismal failure at the Battle
of Bull Run. After a teammate

had tipped the pigskin off course
Blue Devil defensive halfback An-
dy Beath 'snared the errant. Vid-
mer pass as he fell out of bounds
on the Duke one-yard line.
Six plays later, the Wolverines
were marching again, and who
savs hisiory doesn , repeat itself?
Clotheslining a pass from the Blue
Devil 16-yard line this time. Vid-
mer saw Duke rover back Art
Vann get a hand on it, deflecting
it into the waiting hands of Beath
in the end zone.
Beath did manage to recover a
Vidmer fumble in the fourth quar-
ter, but that was all the action
the Duke secondary had in the
second half.
With a little under a minute
remaining in the ball game, Mich-
igan took over on the Duke 49-
yard line. If there wastever a time
for clutch playing, it was then.
Vidmer fired a 16-yarder to
Sharpe, and followed it up with
another completion to Johnson,
good for 23 yards. Enter Titus.

DICK VIDMER, Michigan quarterback, hands off to halfback Ernie Sharpe at the beginning of a
power sweep to the right in yesterday's victory over Duke. Sharpe rushed 19 times for 65 yards. Com-
panion halfback Ron Johnson also had a good day, hitting the line 19 times for a total of 82 yards.

Addition of
New Band
William D. Revelli, director of
the University Bands, has an-
nounced the creation of a seventh
Michigan band, the first one
"geared to those students who are
non-music majors."
Named the Wolverine Band, it
was started during the spring
semester and is currently meeting
Revelli stresses that the band
consists almost exclusively of non-
music majors, both women and
men. who want to continue their
music education but are not in
the music school.
Revelli, who conducts the band,
hopes that it will perform publicly
and thus far, he says, rehearsals
have been encouraging. He feels
that the Wolverine Band "can
become a real fine concert organ-
Revelli estimates that there are
2500-3000 students at the Univer-
sity who played in their high
school bands yet due to lack of
time or proficiency, have not
played in the previously existing
University bands, comprised al-
most entirely of music majors.
Thus. the musical skill that they,
have built up during their high
school years is lost at college. The
Wolverine band has been formed
to remedy this situation.
The band, presently composed
of 72 members, meets from 7:15-
9:00 Tuesday nights at Harris
Hall, at the corner of N. State
and Huron. Revelli urges those
students who played in their high
school bands to come to a re-
hearsal, at which time they will
audition and receive a seat.

Hoff continued.
'Looking Glass' Focus
Unlike most underground news-
papers the focus of "Looking
Glass," according to Hoff, will be
more political than psychedelic.
However, Hoff stressed, the news-
paper will keep abreast of the
"drug scene" since it will be link-
ed to other underground news-
papers across the country through
the Underground Press Service.
"We will take a community is-
sue, such as Sheriff Harvey's riot
squad, and put it into perspective
by relating it to national anti-
riot activity," explained Hoff, a
native of Ann Arbor.
