i

By ROB SALTZSTEIN
a Marching into Camp Randall
Stadium Saturday at Madison
one could not help but notice the
rather large, stuffed brown paper
bags that Wisconsin students
carried under their left arms.
"Probably Schlitz," mumbled a
passing Michigan student who had
made the 400 mile trip from Ann
Arbor to see his girl friend and
then take in the game. He was
alluding to the Wisconsin Stu-
dent Union just' down the road
that does a fast brewing business
selling beer to thirsty students
who guzzle it down as fast as
desert vagabonds who have just
wandered upon an oasis.
But it wasn't Schlitz. It was
toilet paper. Great gobs of it in
assorted colors and sizes and
when the Badgers scored the first
touchdown of the game early in
the first quarter it came out of
the brown, paper bags and went
on display for everyone to see.
The stadium was literally filled
with rolls and rolls of streaming
toilet paper that must have made
the minds of the more thrifty
students boggle at the waste.
It was sort of odd. The winds
that circulated around Camp
Randall played havoc with the
floating toilet paper, blowing it
over the field and dumping most
of it into a large pile on the
forty.
Johnson
Luckily the Michigan cheer-
leaders took time out from jump-
ing on top of one another and
helped clean up the. accumulating
mess which Ron Johnson was
eyeing rather suspiciously as he
braced to return the following
Badger kick-off.
As it turned out Johnson didn't
get that kick anyway. Frank Titas
did. He lumbered out to the vicin-
ity of the Michigan forty with it
to begin a Wqlverine comeback
that eventually buried the Bad-
gers 27-14. The game was not as
close as the score indicates.
Johnson didn't really do much
running all afternoon. The way

Brown was throwing the ball with

pin-point precision he didn't have
to. Brown completed 12 of 17
passes for 232 yards and two
touchdowns. For good measure
the versatile junior also added a
44 yard touchdown run to com-
plete a brilliant day.
Johnson did rush for 33 yards
on 13 carries, enough to break
Tommy Harmon's old Michigan
yards for a season and up John-
son's total for the year to 909
yards. If Johnson can gain 91
yards against Ohio State this
Saturday he will become the first
Big Ten player in history to rush
for a thousand yards or more.
The current record is 996 yards
held by Jim Grabowski of Illi-
nois.
But it was Brown more than
anyone else who was the thunder
of Michigan's attack against Wis-
consin. In this role he used
Johnson as his main supporting
actor, finding the junior fullback
often roaming alone in the Bad-
ger secondary. All in all the hard
driving junior gobbled up three
of Brown's aerials for 90 yards
and a picture perfect touchdown
run on one of the receptions.
Michigan split-end Jim Berline
also had a great day and bene-

fited from Brown's accuracy.
Flashing the form that made Jack
Clancy an All-American last year,
Berline latched onto six passes
for 118 yards and a touchdown.
One of his receptions came on a
letter perfect pass from senior
quarterback Dick Vidmer who en-
tered the game early in the fourth
quarter when Brown had the
wind knocked out of him.
Michigan's defense was strong
RpbwhJidH-ojiaMdnea
Dennis Morgan and safety Tom
Curtis standing out. Curtis tied
a Big Ten record with his seventh
interception of the season, pick-
ing the ball off the ground at
shoe top level and running it back
54 yards to the Badger 22 to
snuff out any Wisconsin hopes of
a rally.
For the first time this year
the Wolverines made critical third
down plays with consistency all
afternoon. On a third and 19
situation Brown hit Johnson with
a 37 yard pass in the second.
quarter to set up the Wolverines
second score. Then, a little later,
with a third and 20 situation at
the Michigan 31, Brown again
hit Johnson and it was good for
a 69 yard touchdown.
In
The game also marked John
Gabler's first touchdown as a
Wolverine. The much talked
about sophomore waltzed eight
yards into the end zone following
Johnson's first big reception of
the afternoon, The exciting soph-
omore was so elated, that he
placed the ball neatly under the
goal posts and all but sat on it
in his joy.
As for the Badgers, they stum-
bled to their eight loss without a
win at the expense of Michigan's
third straight victory. The toilet
paper did come streaming down
once again when the Badgers
scored their second and final
touchdown in the fourth quarter.
This time the fans really let the
field have. it with all they had,
probably sensing it would be the
last time of the afternoon they
would have anything to cheer
about.
On leaving the stadium and
walking about fifty yards you
couldn't help but notice a sign
that read "Last beer before
stadium." Ironically it seemed,
then, that not all the beer in
Wisconsin would be enough to
drown the Badger sorrows this
year.

Sophs Ice Over Ofensive Gaps

By ELLIOTT BERRY
For the first time in a long
time, the Wolverine hockey team
will open their season without an
established offensive superstar.
This year there is no sign of a
Wakabayashi or a Berenson to:
thrill collegiate hockey fans time
{rafter time with rink long dashes:
and blistering drives to get the
Simportant Michigan goals.
This season's team will have to
count on team-work and a balan-
ced scoring attack. The Wolver-
s ... nines lost eight lettermen, most of
whom were key links in the of-
fensive chain. The defense has a

alysis of Wisconsin football. Ice hockey has been called the
"What's good about football up fastest sport in the world, and
here," he said, "is that we drink t h i s season's Michigan team

Renfrew stresses time and again.
"Lack of experience will hurt us
more than anything, but we do
have numbers, so we will have re-
placements for those who can't
do the job."
Renfrew will be looking for solid
forward play from sophomore
Barney Pashak, Don Deeks, Terry
Gosgrove. Doug Glendinning, and
the Heyliger twins, Doug and Don.
The Heyliger name is renown in
Michigan hockey annals as the
twins father coached the Wolver-
ine pucksters to six NCAA crowns
in 13 years and is in the Michigan
Hall of fame.
It is obvious that a team as
young as this is going to make
mistakes, especially due to the
fact that Michigan, who has been
practicing for only three weeks,
was the last team in the WCHA
to start preparation and will be
the last to play a game when they
open Friday night against Mc-
Master. Renfrew states his team's
chances by saying, "We're going
to have to rely on speed and
desire if we are going to win."
Any realistic appraisal of the
Wolverine offensive possibilities
will have to wait until after their
opening games this weekend.
A successful offense usually de-
pends on the right combinations
of three players who will click
together. A line may possess three
potential stars who together just,
can't put the puck in the net.
For most any coach it takes a lot
of juggling to hit upon thy right
combination and it will take a.
couple of games to see wh3 the
team's sparkplugs are.

should exhibit great speed. Last
year's graduation losses will be
filled by some speedy sophomores,
the fastest of whom may be cen-
ter iceman Dave Perrin. If early
practice is any indication, Perrin
should give the icers some real
strength up the middle. Perrin
is extremely fast and possesses
a bullet-like shot.

Lettermen Ron Ullyot, Doug
Galbraith, and Lee Martilla have
formed a formidable line during
practice for Coach Al Renfrew.
The three tallied 29 goals and 65
points between them in last year's
19 games.
Martilla, however, will not be
able to see action at least until
January due to ineligibility. Upon
his return, the Wolverines can
hope for a very prolific combina-
tion.

Hartman is also expected to re-

If Michigan is going to be a
challenge in this year's Western
Collegiate Hockey Association, it
will have to get solid performances
from its sophomore crop.

down to its biannual finals slumber and nobody has time to pick
picks. Also, the season is over.

You've probably been running off
at the mouth about how your edu-
cation isn't going to be just books-
about how you're going to live while
you've got the chance.
Then put down your pencil, baby.
Get into this total ski thing - the
package covers lush hotel lodgings,
some definitely un-dormie meals, en-
tertainment, and a big indoor pond
so you can groove with the wetness.
If you make the midweek scene, the
lift tickets are free. Like on four
great slopes.
The whole thing happens at Park
Place Motor Inn, Traverse City,

Michigan. You can get group rates
for the weekend for as low as $19.95
per body, or split for three days
during the week at $39.95.
Before you give your pencil its well-
earned rest, drag it across the sur-
face of this coupon and get yourself
a rate brochure.
Then close up your face and start
making the scene instead of hallu-
cinating about it.
