Berkeley ' California football
coach Ray Willsey contends that
athletics at Berkeley command a
wide following among the student
body.
It's true. Psychedelic frisbees
have hit the campus in a big way.,
Surrounded by vendors selling
kosher dill pickles, hot pretzels,
and the quotations of Mao Tse-
Tung, students flock outside the
student union flipping to their
hearts' content.
Near by. a fountain gurgles sud-
sy water :rough the mouth of a
Golden Bear, California's mascot,
providing a gathering place 'for
all the bathing canines on campus.
Down the street and past "Rob-
bies' Chinese Hofbrau House"
which serves beer and chop suey,
stands the local campus drugstore,
advertising itself as "The Fixer."
Overlooking it all, nestled
against the side of Strawberry
Mountains: rests massive Memorial
Stadium, the site of today's foot-
ball game between Michigan and
California.
'That's Progress'
Two weeks ago, before the Ber-
keley students began to arrive on
campus, California drew 30,000
for a game here against Oregon.
Tomorrow, with the students back
in full force, ready to start classes
Monday, an estimated crowd of

WOLVERINE QUARTERBACK Dick Vidmer lofts a pass over
the head of a California defender in Michigan's 17-7 win over
the Golden Bears last year. Vidmer is expected to repeat this

televised contest, starting at 4:30
EDT.
California has managed only an
11-19 record under Willsey's ten-
ure. According to the "1967 Golden
Bear Gridiron Guide," however,
"This represents progress."
The five California teams prior
to Willsey's arrival won a total of

"Its laed Is on kSportsth

left.."
"IT'S GOOD! IT'S GOOD! IT'S GOOD!"
And the crowd in the background:
rroaRRRR ....
If you were unfortunate enough to be at the game last Saturday,
you probably missed this classic description of the winning field goal
as reported over a local Ann Arbor radio station.
This was the same field goal Sports Illustrated likened to "a
soaked bubble, barely clearing the crossbar."
Okay, Frank Titas' boot didn't have all the style of the Mona
Lisa. But it went over.
That's why things are going to be different for Michigan this
year.
The Wolverines didn't show perfect form in blowing another one.
They looked lousy a good part of the time and won anyway.
Start with the kicking game. Last year Stan Kemp was the top
punter in the Big Ten. But although it wasn't his fault, he did have!
one blocked in the Purdue disaster.
Last week, Pete Drehman had a punt that went almost nowhere
in the air, but doubled its distance on the ground.
Rick Sygar set a Big Ten record in extra point kicking last
year, without missing one. This year, Frank Titas has kicked a field
goal. . .
Dick Vidmer had better games in a losing cause last year, than
he did against Duke. And there is no machine around called a Jack
Clancy, who doesn't drop a pass in 20 games. Instead, there are four
comparatively anonymous guys to throw to.
Is the punt going to be long or short? This is important be-
cause if it's long Pete Drehman is kicking. If it's short, Garvie
Craw gets the leg exercise.
And according to Frank Titas, neither he or Mike Hankwitz
will know which of them is place kicking until just before the
game.
And that's only minor in comparison to what is fast being called
"the Jon Kramer puzzle." Will he be a defensive end instead of Rocky
Rosema or Tom Stinsic? Will he be the middle guard or will Dennis
Monthei or will Jim Wilhite? Is Kramer a linebacker replacing Dennis
Morgan or Bob Wedge. Or will Cecil Pryor come around enough to get
a chance.
And this, leaves out the offense. Wait until fans start drooling
over the chance to see the pro-sized sophomore halfbacks, John
Gabler and Craw.
Nobody in the nation gives Michigan credit for having as much
talent this year, as they did in '66. Or in '65. But the combined record
of those two teams was 10-10. And .500 ball never won a pennant,
even in the American League.
The only place the teams of the past two years were outstanding
was the statistic and record department.
So, in keeping with the philosophy of win and who cares what
the statistics are, watch the Wolverines on your T.V. today pull
one out on a two point conversion.

10 games and lost 37. California
has not beaten a Big Ten team
since 1952 and have never defeated
the Wolverines, dropping four de-
cisions to them in the last three
decades.
A pep rally was held last night
but appropriately the bonfire went
out.
'Free Speech Hurt'
But Willsey is optimistic about
rebuilding California's football
team, both on the field and in the
eyes of the public.
"That Free Speech movement
stuff we had here a couple years
ago really hurt ourbrecruiting,"
Willsey lamented, "~but I think
things are back to normal now.
The students are pretty solidly be-
hind our team, and if we can re-
gain the' alumni interest we might
fill up the stadium again.'
ND Too Much
After knocking off Oregon 21-
13 to-open the season, California
succumbed to the Notre Dame ma-
chine last'* week, 41-8. "But ,I
thought our players handled them-
selves well, despite the score,"
Willsey pointed out. "Not many
teams look good against Notre
Dame."
California has traditionally
sported a sputtering offense, and
Willsey has apparently not yet
found the cure, "After our per-
formances so far this season, and
Michigan's showing against Duke
last week, I don't think it's going
to be exactly a highscoring game,"
he predicts: "But it should be
something over nothing to noth-
ing."
"Of course, Dick Vidmer has to
to be ranked one of the top passers
in the country, so our secondary
will have to be ready."
Vidmer sat quietly yesterday af-
ternoon writing free postcards pro-
vided by the Claremont Hotel,
where the Michigan team is stay-
ing, and making plans to see the
sights of San Francisco after the
game.
He wouldn't have to go far.
From the top of Strawberry Moun-
tain, you can see the Golden Gate
Bridge, Alcatraz. Fisherman's
Wharf, and probably Haight-Ash-
bury if you look hard.
It is also possible to look down
into Memorial Stadium from the
hillside on a Saturday afternoon
and watch the game. But today
most people in Berkeley will prob-
ably not go to the trouble. After
all, the game is on TV.

YOUR CAREER IN RE)
The refractories industry was born to harness the energy of fire
and put it to work producing steel, aluminum, copper, glass,
cement, lime - the building blocks of the world. Refractories are
deeply involved in nearly every manufactured product. They are
the construction materials with which industrial furnaces are built.
Who is H-W? In the century following Harbison-Walker's estab-
lishment in 1865, it has grown into the world's largest producer
of refractory products - one of the top 500 U. S. corporations.
The 4400 people we currently employ all contribute to our total
sales - annual volume exceeding $100,000,000.
