Wolverine win




I' -- ----Bob Lees,,..
0 There is nothing in the world quite like sitting crammed into the
front seat of a tiny four-seater plane as it glides its way in the dead
of the night from Ann Arbor to Durham, North Carolina.
("Oh, yes there is," moans Doug Heller, "sitting in the BACK
You sit there, with nothing around you but stars and radio
beacons, trying like hell to figure out where you are, how fast you
got there, and where the next beacon is, while all the time your nether
end slowly petrifies. And when you finally arrive, the only thing you
want to do is: sit down.

Duke University is almost one building. If they ever decide
to build a new one, they have to design it to look exactly like all
the others. And the style of this ultra-conformist multiplicity
might be called modern antique college Gothic. My brother, who
goes there, says that the campus was designed to look like
Princeton. They try. they really do, I guess, almost to the point of
carefully aging each stone to look graciously antique.
It ends up just looking silly.
But the food is good. *
0 At Duke, girls are practically nonexistent. The university, in all
its prudence, settled the problem of panty raids and such by putting
all the women's dorms on a compjetely separate campus from the
guys, a full mile away.
I'here's a nice winding umbilical chord known as Campus Drive
joining the campuses-and sexes-which is traversed frequently by
buses, and the women's campus is surrounded by a 10-foot wall, as
required by the trust fund which pays the bills. 'But crafty young
modern Duke-dom got around THIS statute by building the wall five
feet above ground, and five feet below.
Where there's a will ...
Durham'-closes down at midnight. Before then, the only thing
to do in town is drink ... and the only thing to drink is three-two'
beer or Twine. (The liquor stores Just don't exist-at least where a
visitor can find them.) But the university allows the students to
have drinks in the dorm, so just about every night there are beer
parties and wine bottle" all over. ,
But just try sleeping on a Friday night ...
There was dorm party in lfrogress where we stayed Saturday
' night, and bands blared continuously until 1:30 Sunday morn. We
heard every note of every number, and were silently congratulating
the band on its technical excellence, when we noticed that all the
songs they did were the same sort: kind of teeny-bop sophisticate. You
know, Tommy James, Union Gap, Bobby Vinton.
In fact, the big group, appearing in concert that night, was The
r' Turtles. Their lead singer had spent the afternoon leading the Duke
A student body in cheers for their Blue Devils and that evening the
whole campus came back from their concert saying how it was the
best thing they had ever heard and all.
Maybe Bob Hope is appearing next.
We were supposed to meet our pilot, who had spent Saturday
in Asheville, North Carolina, in the Raleigh-Durham Airport Sun-
day at 11 a.m. When noon rolled around and he still hadn't
showed, I called the tower at Asheville and found out that he
had been socked in by fog, but was now on his way.
We finally took off at ,2:00, had to fly at 10,500 feet to avoid
clouds, and ended up running out of gas above Parkersburg, West
Virginia, where we stopped to refuel. After filling ourselves (and
going through an hysterical session trying to get receipts from our
waitress, who couldn't add) and the plane,' we re-embarked, landing
in Ann Arbor at 9:30.
We stepped onto the field then, trying to formulate our
opinions of it all, when Ed, our pilot, came up with the best one:
"In retrospect," he opined, "we'll probably think we had more
fun than we did."

Michigan played one helluva ball
game against Duke Saturday.
Not only Ron Johnson, Dennis
Brown and Tom Stincic but also
Jerry Imsland, Paul Staroba, Hen-
ry Hill and Cecil Pryor. The whole
team went down to Durham, N.C.
and decided they wanted to play
Against-California in the opener.
the Michigan players looked like,
each individual was participating
in his very own game. When the
Wolverines moved into Wallace
Wade Stadium last weekend, the
mood was completely different.,
The 31-10 victory was the proof of{
their convictions.
One of the reasons for Michi-
gan's defeat against Cal was poor
conditioning. The Wolverines,.
overheated, ran out of gas in the
fourth quarter. The 80-degree heat
was too much for theplayers in
their winter weight jerseys.
Coach Bump Elliott spent all1
last week getting the players into
shape to play 60 minutes of foot-
ball in the Southern heat which
sometimes soars into the 90s in
late September. Blue Devil coach

Tom Harp was praying all week
that the temperature would be 120
at game time.
"The coaches really worked us
hard last week, and we didn't like
it," said Michigan punter Mark
Werner after the game. But he
liked the results, adding, "it sure
helped us win the game."
A large factor in the Wolverines'
ability to beat the heat was the use
of summer weight jerseys, made
especially for the Duke encounter.
The new fish net jerseys worn
against Duke did some of the play-
ers' breathing for them. "Those
uniforms really made a differ-
ence,". stated Stan Broadnax. The
offensive guard had to be taken

out of the Cal contest because of
heat exhaustion.
The biggest change in the Wol-
verines, however, was the ability
of the inexperienced juniors and
sophomores to fill in for graduated
and injured veterans .
Imsland, who along with Bill
Harris had a terrible afternoon
against Cal, resembled departed
All-American Jack Clancy in the
Duke clash. The suddenly sticky-
fingered split end caught six'
aerials for 103 yards and Michi-
gan's first touchdown of the game.
Junior Jim Mandich, looking
more like the "complete" tight end
every game, snarled five Brown
spirals to balance the Wolverines
'passing attack. The Michigan re-
ceivers, who dropped countless
footballs against Cal in the opener,
only let one get away in Durham.
The Wolverines came up with
one other receiver find in Paul Sta-
roba, who played all the way at
flanker after John Gabler appear-
ed to pinch a nerve in his neck in
the first half.
One other newcomer made an
auspicious debut on offense, but

Baumgartner injured his left

surgery this week to correct the
damage and will be lost for the

MICHIGAN'S GRAVIE CRAW (48) struggles toward a first down
in Saturday's game at Durham. The rugged fullback turned his
13 running assignments into 71 yards and emerged as a counter-
balance to the Wolverine's Ron Johnson threat.


Gridde Pickings


comers gave outstanding displays,
Sophomore Henry Hill, filling in
for the injured Jon Kramer at de-
fensive end, spent much if the
game in, the Blue Devils' backfield
dumping Duke quatrterback Leo
Hart for losses.
The whole defensive line was a
sight to behold. The iane line,!
which has been bruised and bat-
tered by Calls running game the
week before, allowed the Blue
Devils little running room, holding
them to 68 yard on the ground for
the afternoon.
There was one other l'ayer, al-

most a forgotten starter, who ex- I

It was Sunday night. 11:50 p.m. when the long-haired crazy
anarchists bombed again.
The captain called me immediately. I jumped into my clothes,
raced to my sports auto, and picked up my partner John at the corner.
John and me. Known only to the citizens of Ann Arbor as The
Bomb Squad.
We sped to the bomb site.
"When will it end, John?" I queried. "Sure, we all want to
change society, but there must be a better way than this. Those
weeping children. The burnt mothers. The torn souls. Why, John?
Why do they do it?"
We advanced towards the smoky ruins, the smell of bare feet and
long hair in our nostrils,
"Why," I hollered in rage and frustration. "Why do they do it?"
"To keep their pants up," answered John, and he went into his
wonderful soft-shoe.
Picking through the ruins, we found that last week's gridde
pickings winner was one Phil Jewell of East Quad. Phil is the hand-
some winner of a Cottage Inn pizza complete with carrying case.
You wanna win this week? Then enter quick! Before Friday at
midnight! Pick the winners and send your predictions to us? Hurry
up! Or your life won't be your own

(We took the inside out
to show you how different it is.)
Outside: it's softer and silky (not cardboardy).
Inside: it's so extra absorbent... it even protects on
your first day. Your worst day!
In every lab test against the old cardboardy kind...
the Playtex tampon was always more absorbent.
