EVANSTON-Michigan's defense almost outgained Northwestern's
offense here yesterday. Almost.
But by 38 yards on the ground and by 20 yards in the air; the
bumbling Wildcat attack managed to squeak past the fired-up Wol-
That, however, was the nearest Northwestern came to anything
resembling victory, as Michigan romped to its sixth straight win,
Led by Tom Curtis who caught two Wildcat passes for 64 yards,
Dan Parks with one for 50 yards and a touchdown, Bob Kieta with
one for 24 yards, and Mark Werner who snagged one pass for no
gain; the Wolverines smothered quarterback David Shelbourne's
aerial attack. (Total: 5 interceptions for 138 yards).
Six Michigan defenders tackled would-be Northwestern ground-
gainers 12 times for a combined total of 71 yards behind the line
'They (Northwestern) had a real good offensvie line," Wolverine
linebacker Cecil Pryor remarked after the game. "They were bigger
than us, but they gave up a little speed ... we were a little quicker."
(The phrase 'a little quicker' conjures up memories of the massive
Parks (6'5", 235 pounds), rambling and rumbling down the sideline
with his second-quarter touchdown.)
The gamestarted out calmly enough, with neither team moving
the ball very well throughout a scoreless first period.
The calm was deceptive, however. A well-tuned Wolverine offense,
averaging nearly 30 points per game this season, was just waiting to
The fans were ready, the bands were ready, the stage was set:
And sure enough, there was an explosion. Four touchdowns in eight
minutes, and the game was out of reach.

end Bill Harris kept up the momentum, though, and Ron Johnson
went over from the three for the first of his two touchdowns in the
Then, in the last three minutes o'f the half, Northwestern com-
mitted a series of three fatal mistakes.
* Number One: An interference penalty at the Wildcat seven-
yard line. Two plays later, a Michigan TD. Score: 14-0.
E . Number Two: Two plays after the kickoff, a Shelbourne pass
picked off by Curtis and returned to the NU 41. Three plays later,
Johnson scores from the five, making it 20-0.
" Number Three: After the kickoff, Shelbourne's first pass picked
off by Parks, who rode his teammates' blocking into the end zone
for a whopping 28-0 halftime lead.

SOPHOMORE LANCE SCHEFFLER (45) leaps over the North-
western line to score Michigan's final touchdown in yesterday's
35-0 rout. The six pointer was the first score of the young half-
back's collegiate varsity career.
After that, it was a return to the cold-war-type action of the
opening quarter, until the reserves pushed over the fifth and final
TD late in the last period. Diving the, final one Tard was sophomore
Lance Scheffler, for the 'first score of his career.
Johnson added 129 yards to his record-setting pace in assault
of Tom Harmon's all time rushing record of 2134 yards. He now has a
career total of 1951-a mere 183 yards short of Harmon's 27-year-old
mark. Johnson, who carried the ball 24 times, has now racked up
more rushing attempts (416) than any player in Michigan history.
The outcome was hardly surprising. A well-oiled Michigan ma-
chine, fed on the culmulative steam of five straight victories and the
knowledge that three more will send It to the Rose Bowl, smashed
the Wildcat Homecoming.
Near the end of the game, the large contingent of Michigan fans
broke out in a new chant: an enthusiastic "We're NUMBERONE!"

Of Cops dr inkin
Evanston, Illinois, is the drag strip for the local police.
Mounted on giant motorcycles, and wearing black leather jackets
and white helmets, they zip through the town in overwhelming
Whether scrambling or in an all-out race, they leave traffic
patterns in a snarl. Somjetime they cut off motorists who are forced
to slam on the brakes. It really shakes up the local citizens, not to
mention the visitors coming in for football games.
Apparently, the police have little else to do. Evanston is a dry
city. It's the location of the national headquarters of the Women's
Christian Temperance tjnion (WCTU).
If there ever is a problem, the, police turn on their sirens
which may be the loudest in the world. A platoon of about a half
dozen cyleles with a couple of squad ears is an impressive sight
speeding down the street in full regalia. Often, they pass another
group going In the opposite direction.
If a cop ever has to get off his bike, to direct traffic or something
like that, he does so regretfully. In a syibol of defiance he keeps
his helmet and jacket on. If a motorist does not understand a police-
man's signal and turns the wrong way, he is liable to find his rear

Besides its amazing police department and the WCTU, Evan-
ston is the home of one other organization of note: the North-'
western football team. Unlike the cops and the temperance people,
the Wildcats are inept. They have no real offense, or maybe it
just looks that way against the Michigan defense.
As, for the Northwestern defense, it is stubborn but eventually
convinced. Also, it has an amazing tendency to lose personnel as one
man after another is carried off the field.
Incidentally, Michigan also shut out Northwestern 35-4 in
