Coach Alex Agase is not exact-
ly sure where Northwestern's
strength lies. "We haven't had a
good chance to find out," he notes.
IP Small wonder why not.

State (faint) . . . And finally a.
win over Wisconsin (a question-
able phhew).
And for the Paulines of the foot-
ball world, it's not over yet. Next
in line is ninth-ranked Michigan.
"We took at real physical. beat-
ing, froth Wisconsin last weekend,"
says Coach Agase, "and they're not
ranked. Six guys didn't even suit
up for practice today (October
One of them, defensive end Mark
Proskine, won't suitvup for the
rest of the year. Against Wiscon-
sin he suffered a hairline frac-
ture of his lower leg.
Senior Ed Paquette is slated to
take Proskine's place. Second to
linebacker Don Ross in tackles,
Proskine had 18 solo tackles and
37 assists going into the Wiscon-
sin game.
Another defensive linebacker,
Ray Forsthoffer, may not make
the Wolverine clash either. He al-
so fractured something in t h e
Wisconsin game- a finger.
One player sure to make the
game is quarterback Dave Shel-
bourne. In the Wisconsin game he

Sigma Alpha Mu defeated Sigma Phi Epsilon for the social
fraternity "A" football championship, 8-0, yesterday and Scott
House held back a Van Duren House second half surge to grab the
Residence Halls "A" title, 15-7.
The fraternity clash was marked by fine play and quite a bit
of hard hitting. The Sammies took the opening kickoff for their only
offensive score of the game. A pass to flanker Larry Levitt and a sub-
sequent roughing penalty took the ball to the ten-yard line.
Then, three plays later, quarterback Rod Parrott, former Bay City
Central signal caller, took the ball into the endzone around the left
end. The conversion attempt fsll short.
The only other score of the game came when Daryl Gianetti, or,
as he is more affectionately known, "The Hammer", downed Sigma Phi
field general John Branston in his own end zone for a safety.
Sigma Phi was not lying dead, however. Branston moved his
team into Sammy territory several times only to see his pass
protection break down and his hurried aerials intercepted.
The Sigma defense, though, tightened up in the second half.
The losers split their defensive ends, preventing the run, and the
cornerbacks played their men to the outside, taking away the screen
pass. The effectiveness of the tactic is reflected in the fact that the
Sammies were unable to gain a first down in the second half.
The Residence Halls affair was not as rough as the fraternity
tilt, but the game held much more excitement. Scott took a 13-0 lead
after a scoreless first quarter on the arm of Randy Sharp and the
hands of Mike Curtis. After Wayne Lehman intercepted a Len
Matuszak pass on the Van Duren 25-yard line, Sharp found Curtis
on the three-yard line on a long hook pattern. Sharp then passed
to end Tom Hadwin for the TD. The conversion attempt fell in-
After regaining possession of the ball, Scott's Sharp lofted the
ball far downfield and Curtis, running a long post, gathered it in on
the Van Duren 20-yard line and sprinted the rest of the way for
the touchdown. The pass-run covered a total of 61 yards. The pass
for the conversion was complete and Scott led 13-0.
Van Duren took over on the Scott 10, and on the first play of the
new series, Matuszak took the ball around end for the score and
passed to make the conversion good.
Scott scored a safety on the game's last play to boost its winning
margin to eight points.

NORTHWESTERN'S DENNIS WHITE (16) breaks up a Dennis Brown-to-Jim Mandich pass in last
year's contest on the snow-covered Wolverine turf. The Wildcats will need such performances from
their defensive unit, crippled by the loss of its second-leading tackler Mike Proskine, when they host
ninth-ranked Michigan this Saturday.

hit his receivers for 19 comple-
tions in 30 tosses for 173 yards,
and Agase has given the starting
assignment to the 195-pound
He was also a stand-out against
Ohio State this year. It took the
Buckeyes three quarters to pull the
game away from the determined
Wildcats. In those three quarters,
Shelbourne managed to toss two
touchdowns and score another.
That left Northwestern trailing
o n 1 y 27-2 1 before the fourth-
quarter Buckeye explosion netted
them three touchdowns.
Shelbourne's receivers in EVans-
ton this weekend will be e n d s
Bruce Hubbard and Pat Harring-
ton, both juniors. In last year's
Wolverine-Wildcat duel, which
was Michigan's 500th win, Hub-
bard caught three of Northwest-
ern's eight completed passes for
36 yards.
Shelbourne also throws regular-
ly to halfbacks Mike Adamle, a
sophomore, and Chico Kurzawski,
a senior. And don't leave out Craig
Smeeton. Northwestern's winning
drive of 15 plays against Wisconsin
last week was keyed around Smee-
ton's runs of 10, 8, and 15 yards,'
with the fourth down TD coming
on a Shelborune-to-Smeeton pass.
The other member of the back-
field, senior Bob Olson, is a half-
back converted to fullback. He led
his teammates in rushing in last
year's Michigan game as a half-
back, going 60 yards in 15 tries.
Defensively Northwestern could
be hurting with the loss of Pro-

skine and the possible loss of:
Forsthoffer. The Wildcats will
need another outstanding per-t
formance from halfbacks Dan!
White and Dic Dean and safety
Hal Daniels.
The trio held Notre Dame's Jimc
Seymour to one catch in each halfi
for 23 yards. Of the 13 aerials Irishf
quarterback Terry Hanratty lofted
in the first half, only three were
completed, while two were stolen.
The defensive tackle position is
anchored by senior Jack Rudnay. t
Pairing with him is junior Bill 3

As Coach Agase, says, "I neverc

saw to guys (Johnson and Brown)
give one team so much offense."
Containing this offense will be
Northwestern's problem.
Northwestern has what every
football coach says his team has-
desire and pride. "We have to be
up for every game," Coach Agase
explains. "All I talk this week is

G rd P*1ekings'
Here's something you may well not have considered previously.
"Gridde Pickings" offer an excellent opportunity for you to vent
your frustration with the political situation; your hostility for your
roommate; your dissatisfaction with your slot in society.
Example: You don't like George Wallace. You'd like nothing
better than to make him unhappy. All right - cast a vote for
Houston over the Bulldogs this week. You'll feel a whole lot better
for it.
Example No. 2: Your dopey roommate is an ardent Emory &
Henry supporter. Emory & Henry players are never just good, they're
always "great". This really tees you off. An immediate remedial
course is obvious . . select Hampden-Sydney as the probable victor.
Example No. 3: There isn't any.
How about that? Doesn't that just tickle your little tummy?
Doesn't that just splinter your little spleen? Doesn't that just twitter
your little tongue?
Just so. We here at the Sports Staff are all real happy. Anything
we can do, anything we can give, anything we can offer is yours. But
please, please, no more bricks through the window.
It's simply too cold outside in the winter.

That's why we have a two-

graduating engineers who
would prefer to explore several
technical areas. And that's why,
many, of our areas are organ-

by project.
At Hughes, you might
work on spacecraft, communi-
cations satellites and/or tacti-
cal missiles during your first
two years.
All you need is an EE, ME
or Physics degree and talent.

You may select special-
ized jobs, or broad systems-
type jobs. Or you can choose
not to change assignments if
you'd rather develop in-depth
skHis in one area.
Either way, we think
you'll like the Hughes ap-

If you qualify, we'll arrange for
you to work on several different
