Snow, Poached Eggs,
And the 500th Victory
It was a beautiful day for football.
Until the game began.
Snow, that delightful mesh of crystalline flaky icy splendor which
melts upon the soft warm cheeks of children and whips through the
wintry wind ....
Snow, that delightful mess which bleached the stadium, eclipsed
the sun, and floated a visible shield between game and spectators,
players and ball ....
It was a tough match from the beginning. The "White Peril"
invaded Ann Arbor yesterday afternoon at the opening kick-off,
was tackled by the sunshine during the second quarter, shot
through a gaping hole in the Blue sky with a flurry during the
second half, and, after chasing the spectators from the stadium,
disappeared complete with overcast into the Northwestern locker
room where it was last seen forming a layer of crusty icicles
around Willdcat head coach Alex Agase.
In other action, Michigan defeated Northwestern, 7-3.
It was not a particuarly exciting game. Even when you could
see what was going on. No championships rested upon the outcome,
the outcome rested upon few breathless moments.
But it was the 500th victory for the University of Michigan,
even though it might have taken this particular team 250 years to
win that many themselves.

interception, the Wolverines tak-
ing over on football's DMZ, the
50-yard line. Four Brown passes,
two Johnson rushes, and three
Brown rollouts preceded a futile
field goal try from the North-
western 21-yard line by Hankwitz.
Michigan punter Pete Drehmann
and Kurzawski practiced the fine
art of kicking fortheremaining
bulk of the third quarter.
Slipping on his track shoes late
in the period, Johnson melted the
snow in the Northwestern end of
the Stadium again. He bulled into,
over, through, under, and around
the Wildcat line, with the Wol-
verines employing the "Johnson
formation." Inches short of a first
down at the Northwestern 15-yard
line, Michigan gave up the ball.
In another attempt to make the
Wolverines live up to their repu-
tation, the Wildcats charged
again. A Melzer-Don Anderson
connection combined with a Mich-
igan penalty for unsportsmanlike
conduct to move Northwestern
HOUSTON (P) - The Uni-
versity of Houston scored twice
in the final period last night
and ran for a two-point con-
version to pull out a 15-14
football victory over fifth-
deep into Michigan territory, but
the Wolverine defense tightened
on their own 20 to contain the
Michigan (i.e., Johnson) launch-
ed one more serious penetration,
that was halted at the Northwest-
ern five-yard stripe. The clock
showed 58 seconds remaining, and
Wolverine fans closed their eyes.
Melzer lofted an aerial to Ander-
son on a sidelines patern that
was good for 14 yards. Frowns
were transformed into grimaces.
Melzer faded back again and
tossed a high, soft pass toward
the left sideline, where an anx-
ious Brue Hubbard waited, along
with Wolverine Hartman. They
both went up, and Hartman came
down with the ball that will be
labeled "Number 500." Returning
the steal 42 yards, Hartman gave
the Wolverines one more scoring
opportunity. Brown carried twice
to end the game on the North-
western 2-yard marker.
"We weren't going to try any-
thing fancy at that point, and
risk the ball popping up in the
air," Elliott explained prudently.
Elliott knew what Northwestern
had gone through in the game.
"They are a real tough team -
very much like our own," he said.
"It's hard when you come close
like they did and still lose. Their
story is just like ours, so fm
sure they're a strong team," El-
The 500th win was a sweet one
for Michigan. For as Emily Dick-
enson put it, "To comprehend a
nectar requires sorest need."

It Snowed Yesterday
The game did have its interesting sidelights.
It is a rare adventure to watch Michigan try to kick a field goal.
Mike Hankwitz attempted one from the 21 yardline in the third
quarter, and if flew of his foot like a poached egg. It would have been
wide to the right if it had traveled far enough.
This is not necessarily to blame Hankwitz. There is substan-
tial question as to whether the "well-executed Michigan field goal"
can exist even by definition. How many officials would know
what one looked like now even if they saw it.
There was another interesting moment in the last minute of the
game. Michigan had returned an intercepted pass to the Northwestern
six, and, with 30 seconds showing on the clock, someone called time
out much to the chagrin of Coach Bump Elliott.
"I sure didn't want to call any time outs," Elliott shook his head
after the game. "I could just see the ball squirting out of someone's
hands . ~
Elliott was understandably gun shy. A coach who has just lost
five games in a row, four after fourth-quarter nightmares, has the
right to settle for a sure victory. The Wolverines had one more
time out available when the clock ran out with the ball on the
Wildcats' two yard line. Some of the more blood-thirsty, and
pehaps short-memoried fans, booed.
Most of the players, and especially Elliott, just looked relieved.
Halfback Ron Johnson looked the happiest. They should have
carried him off the field at the end, and not just because of his con-
tirbution to the victory. Most guys who'd just run with the ball as
much as he had couldn't have made it to the locker room any other
Johnson moved within 69 yards of Tom Harmon's Wolverine
single season rushing record of 884 yards by adding 167 yesterday
on the strength of a Big Ten record-breaking 42 carries. In one
series during the fourth quarter he carried the ball 10 out of 11
"It's the only way. to play," Johnson laughed afterwards.
"I'm glad he could get the record for carries," Elliott said. "We
didn't necessarily plan it that way, but we did intend to give it to
him as much as possible."
"We were hoping they wouldn't use Johnson as much as they
did," Agase said.
Johnson and quarterback Dennis Brown were the only two
Wolverines to carry the ball, Brown keeping it himself 15 times.
Fullback Garvie Craw, shut out of running action by the Brown-
Johnson combination, commented "It's so much pleasure for me to
block for Johnson I don't care if I get the ball or not. Heck, I have
the best seat in the house once I'm on the ground and can watch him
Actually Craw had one of the few seats in the house toward
the end of the game. The announced attendance was 62,063. This
apparently included all ticket holders who showed up, all ticket
holders who did not show up, some non-ticket holders who showed
up, and the radio audience.
The snow took care of all ticket holders who did not show up,
most ticket holders who showed up, and probably even most non-
ticket holders who showed up.
The radio audience apparently remained loyal.
After all, it isn't every day Michigan wins its 500th game.
RON JOHNSON, workhorse of the Michigan rushing attack, is
tackled by Wildcat linebackers Joe Hudson (49), and Hans Liessoo
(62) during the Wolverine's solo touchdown drive. Johnson car-
ried 6 out of the 14 plays in the second period assault.
