It was about the five-minute mark of the second quarter. Safe-
ties' Brian Healy and George Hoey stood near, each other on the
Michigan 31 yard line, awaiting a punt from Navy's Jack Detweiler.
As the kick came angling down toward Iloey's outstretched arms,
Healy yelled: "Signal for a fair catch!"
Hoey started to raise his arm, but it was too late. Instead, he
caught the ball and raced 63 yards to the Middle six and set up Mich-
igan's first touchdown.
Navy never quite recovered.
"I really didn't mean-to return it," admitted a jublilant Hoey
after the game. "There just wasn't time enough to signal for a fair
Middle coach Bill Elias wasn't quite as elated. "Genius that I
am, I told my punter to hold up on the kick so our tacklers could
get downfield," he moaned in the post-game locker room. "We were
within two yards of that little speedster when he caught it. A more
experienced ball player would never have tried to run it back."
Hoey's runback was the starting point for the Wolverines. Three
plays after he was tackled, roommate Ron Johnson bulled over for
Hoey also set up two other Michigan scores ... one on his second
long punt return (36 yards) in the second quarter, and another on a
31-yard return of a Pass interception in the third quarter.
In addition, he also stopped a Navy drive with his second inter-
ception on the Wolverine 23, late in the third period.
Elias said Michigan 'was a "much better team than last year.
The quarterbacking was improved, and fullback Garvie Craw
kept us honest up the middle."
All in all, the home fans watched what appeared to be a dif-
ferent ball club from the one that bowed to-California two weeks ago.
And all in all, they appeared to enjoy what they saw.
That is, when they were watchingthe football game. For alas,
there was many a distraction for the average fan. Early in the con-
test, celebrity Johnny Carson graced the 50-yard line crowd with a
brief appearance which degenerated into an autograph-signing spree,
which in turn drove Carson from the stands.
Next, the howling mass focused its attention on two superb per-
formances by local canine heroes. The smaller dog. a brown-and-
white mongrel of unknown parentage, managed to rack up three
touchdowns before being tackled by a Stadium official in the Michigan
end zone. These scores delighted the paid customers and alumni, who
kindly refrained from judging the player by his background since he
did so well..
Next, the crowd played "ring-around-the-stadium" with
football snagged after a Michigan P.A.T. This soon became tiring,
however, and eyes were turned back to the gory gridiron, where
no less than six injured players were helped from the field.
Strangely enough, the sporadic cheers and boos which began to
rise from the stands bore little noticeable relation to what was hap-
pening in the game. Only then did it become evident that everyone
was tuned in to the World Series game in Detroit.
Once the -Tigers had lost, attention once again turned to the
football battle, and the Wolverines kept it there for the remainder
of the gam~e.
Coach Bump Elliott sent in reserves half-way through the fourth
quarter, and the move paid off with a final touchdown drive of 50
yards in four plays. Greg Harrison, a sophomore halfback, scored the
last tally from the one after time had officially run out.
"Michigan lookslike they could be a Big Ten contender," Elias
opined after. the contest. "They didn't use anything that wasn't ex-
pected today. I think they're holding in reserve what they're planning
for next week."
Unfortunately, he may not have known what he was talking
about. Without Hoey's big plays, the score would have been a
lot closer. Despite the 23-point victory margin, the Wolverines
managed to outgain Navy by only 21 yards.
The one statistic that did portend trouble for next week's visitors
from East Lansing was the 15' for 24 (62.5%) mark racked up by
Michigan passers Dennis Brown and Don Moorhead. In sharp con-
trast with the first two games this season, receivers Mandich, Ims-
land and Harris had sticky fingers almost every time the ball came '
Overall, the Wolverines avoided costly mistakes. In addition, they
came up with the key plays both on defense and on offense. And, in
the final analysis, they scored more points. According to Don Can-
ham's spectacular new scoreboards, it was Michigan 32 and Navy 9.
Nothing else really made any difference.

tween the 25-yard markers.
Hoey, however, decided to put a
little life into things.

small drive, and McNallen had

tempts. Hoey then materialized,

broke three or four tackles, and
ran to the Navy 48.
Brown came in and threw a
nine-yard look-in to Imsland.
On the next play, Johnson went
inside left end, broke a tackle at
the line, then sped down the
left sideline for 39yards and a
score. Again the PAT failed,
but now the scoreboard read 25-
For a long time afterwards
these numbers stayed the same.
As the fourth quarter started,
Michigan began to substitute
freely, and the second- and
third-stringers emulated the
fine performances they follewed.
In the last half-minute Navy
drove in again, mostly on Mc-
Nallen passes. The last was a
six-yarder to Jim Schwelm,
good for the TD, and their PAT
failure made it 25-9.
But that wasn't all. Michi-
gan's reserves drove right back,
and when Naval interference
was called in the end zone with
no time remaining, they got the
ball on the one. Halfback Greg
Harrison jumped in, Killian
converted, and the scoreboard
said 32-9 as everyone went

Brock jumped on a 3-2 count to
Maris. Maris missed the ball, and
Freehan pegged the throw to
third to catch 'Brock. Although
the official score calls it a steal

The Tigers, though not as
thunderstruck as they were in the
first game, still couldn't get con-
trol pitching. The starter, Wilson,
walked six batters in the four and
one-third innings he pitched. Al-
though he didn't allow a Cardinal
run, he was responsible for two
men on base when he was re-
lieved. These two scored on Mc-

In trying to stem the Cairinals,
Smith employed five pitchers. The
second, Dobson, pitched to four
batters and allowed a homerun
and a single. Don McMahon came
on after a pinch hitter and stop-
