Curtis' Steals Kindle Defensive
By HUD ENGLEHART
Champaign, Illinois has never
been a town known for great de-
fenses. Ever since the days of Red
Grange, offensive power has dom-
inated the University of 'Illnois
football scene. The best way to
win was to score points . . . and
points ... and more points.
For a while last Saturday it
looked as if the Illini were going
to do just that. With 2:45 left in
BIG TEN STANDINGS
the first quarter, fullback Rich
Johnson cracked over right tackle
and went fifteen yards for a
touchdown Then after an Illinois
interception of a Denny Brown
pass at the Michigan 35, John-
son again bolted into the Wol-
verine line for seven yards and
the second score of the game.
Halftime rolled around and
Michigan was behind with what
seemed to be a comfortable Illi-
nois lead of 14-0.
Someone must have put the
ghost of Red Grange in the Mich-
igan locker room at half time be-
cause the Wolverines defense took
the field determined not to let
the Illini offense score any more
points and even more determined
to wipe out any hope for the
presence of the Galloping Ghost.
In the second half of the game,
the Michigan secondary showed
the people of Champaign just how
football games are won by de-

Michigan proceeded to lose the
ball on downs, but the fumble
recovery helped to keep Illinois
deep in their own territory. The
defense held them there and
forced a punt. Michigan then
drove its first touchdown.
After the kickoff, the defense
held again. The Illini punted into
the waiting arms of George Hoey
who did a cute little disappearing
act galloping 60 yards to score
Michigan's second touchdown of
Just for the record, Hoey is a
defensive back. Chalk up number
two for the defense.
Actually the defense hadn't
even warmed up yet.
The fourth quarter began and
the Illini began to move. The
Wolverine defense wasn't about

decided to take things into his
own hands and cover the entire
secondary by himself.

good for 20 yards just two plays
Volkman took the snap from
center, dropped beak and fired -
right into the hands of Curtis.
The interception gave the Wol-
verine offense the momentum it
needed to drive the 44 yards for
the winning score.
The touchdown came with only
5:12 gone in the fourth period,
giving Illinois ample time to
mount its offensive in an effort
to tie the score.
The only ghosts in Champaign
this week were the nightmarish
kind that looked like Wolverine
defenders. On the third play fol-
lowing Michigan's final scoring
effort of the afternoon, Tom
Stincic blasted into the Illini
backfield from his defensive end
position and glued a tackle on
Volkman that unglued the ball.
While Stincic was busy prying
himself loose from Volkman,
Michigan linebacker Dennis Mor-
gan got into the ball-stealing act
long enough to recover the fumble
on the Illini 35.
The offense came back into the
game and held on to the ball for
eight plays before Drehman's
punt rolled out of bounds on the
Illini nine yard line. There was
still 5:10 remaining in the game
and Illinois wasn't about to quit.
Until that nightmare popped up
again. Illinois had just reeled off
two consecutive first downs. With
first and ten and the clock run-
ning out, Volkman decided to
throw a relatively deep pass in
Curtis' direction again.
Volkman took the snap from
center, dropped back and fired
- right to Curtis arms.
Final score: Michigan defense
21, Illinois offense 14.
The victory was number 200 for
the Wolverines in conference play.
The Wolverine secondary ac-
counted for five of the six un-
expected turnovers committed by
the Illini. Hartman recovered a
fumble and intercepted a pass.
Curtis found himself on the re-
ceiving end of three Volknian
aerials before the day was over.

Down the drain. Or should I say down the septic tank.
It all started, innocently enough, in kindergarten. The teacher
would draw four objects in a row and ask everyone to pick out the
one that was different from the rest. For instance, she would picture
three rabbits and one squirrel. Or maybe three squirrels and one rabbit.
That was a little tougher,.
By the time I got to grade school the teacher was drawing
graphs on the board .. . bar graphs, line graphs, circular graphs.
I was still looking for the rabbit.
In junior high the teacher would shove a book under our noses
and tell us to read. That was all right until he asked me what I'd
read. But at least I was beginning to understand what education was
all about. I never had figured out what rabbits or bar graphs had to
do with the Korean War, rising taxes, or the Brdoklyn Dodgers, all of
which seemed more important.
High school was notably uneventf-ul.
But then I came to college and discovered the mysteries of life,
became attuned to the ageless questions which have plagued man,
and began for the first time to appreciate the beauties of the written
word, the complexities of modern existence, the profundities of the
world's greatest thinkers . . . and in zoology lab I finally found out
how to distinguish a rabbit from a squirrel. Education was beginning
to make sense.
Until last Saturday. Saturday they gave the Law School Ad-
mission Test, better known as law boards, at Rackham Auditorium.
It wasn't so much the degree of difficulty-as the type of ques-
tion asked-that was so disillusioning. I went in thinking I was an
educated man.I came out muttering something about septic tanks.
The first section was concerned with reading comprehension.
Shades of junior high, I thought. We read something about bats
The next section presented a number of graphs for our consump-
tion. Shades of grade school, I thought. There was one graph depicting
the rising and setting of Venus with various dots and dashes that
resembled a Kandinsky original. "Never saw a dash-dot graph before,"
I muttered, marking the answer sheet at random (with a "number

Indiana Ros Along
By ELLIOTT BERRY
In two weeks, the unbelieveable
Hoosiers of Indiana may find
themselves battling an overwhel-
mingly powerful Purdue team for
the Big Ten championship.
The incredible Indiana Hoosiers,
whose last period victories are1
becoming old hat,. came within
two minutes and 50 seconds ofI
losing Saturday's contest with
Michigan State when whiz kid
John Isenbarger breezed five
yards for the score to give Indi-

Fabulous Leroy Keyes, with his
three touchdowns, set Big Ten
records for most touchdowns in
a season, 14, and most points, 84.
Keyes' running was equaled by
the brilliant passing of young
quarterback Mike Phipps who
completed 17 of 31 passes for 235
yards and a touchdown.
The Gophers scored first on a
31-yard field goal by Bob Stein.

The third section, naturally, featured rows of objects. Shades
of kindergarten, I thought. We were supposed to tell which ob-
ject in the third column contained a certain characteristic which
all the objects in the first column had that none of the objects
in the second column had. I still couldn't pick out the rabbits.
After struggling through hypothetical laws and hypothetical cases,
("Assuming that you can sue a man if he's trying to destroy com-
petition, can B sue A if A threatens B with, a gun that has a faulty
firing pin and B is a gun expert?") the morning session ended, and,
after lunch, we were tested on writing ability and general knowledge.
Apparently the test of a good writer is if he can properly organize a
paragraph about cows. At least I think that's what it was about.
But the general knowledge test was the back-breaker. Sure, there
were questions about Aristotle, the moon, Jonathan Swift, Rembrandt.
But never more than one of each.
Septic tanks, of course, are a different story. They rated at least
three questions. "Do septic tanks lower the water hole in the United'
States?" "What substance is used in septic tanks?" Is grass green?
How should I know. Sixteen years-and I can't remember one day
spent on septic tanks. Can I help it if I didn't go to a progressive

than cooked carrots during orientation. Hadn't I eaten dinner

And all I got was a sore neck from leaning over all day. At least
everybody hissed at the end of the test.

my row brought a transistor radio and listened to the football game
