BLAN KETS

By BERT STRATTON
With the imminence of T H E
game, a lot of irresponsible, irra-
tional opinions have been made
on the relative merits of the Wol-
verines and the Buckeyes.
{ Well, it's about time to douse
this flame of emotional speculat-
ing with the hose of hard fact.
Yes, those reliable football sta-
tistics are what we always seem
to fall back on in times of crisis,
and in this day of loose talk, foot-
ball fans again seek refuge in
those little things that do not lie.
TENACIOUS STAND
For openers, let us recall the
tenacious stand of the Michigan
defense last week, allowing Wis-
consin only nine points. That ex-
cellent showing moved the Michi-
gan defense from tenth to ninth
in the nation in points allowed.
The Wolverines, yielding a stingy
11.7 points per game, have allow-
ed only 105 points all season.
Now to look at those con ar-
tists from Ohio State who knowj
how to use ;facts better than Ro-
bert Strange McNamara. In Ohio
State's practice game with Iowa,
the Buckeyes gained enough yards
rushing to move from the eighth
spot in rushing to their present
fifth position, with 2337 yards on

the ground for a 292.1 yard aver-
age.
Such proof of a strong rushing
attack, coupled with Ohio State's
sixth ranking nationally in total
offense, gives us insight into fur-
ther realities. One of these truths

NATIONAL
OUTLOOK
is that the Buckeyes, averaging
30.8 points a game, have main-
tained their twelveth post nation-
ally in scoring with 246 points.
It's imperative to see what Ron
Johnson, ace Michigan halfback,
has been doing. The physical sta-
tistics indicate that he has been
doing an unusual amount of rapid
ambulation, or in laymen's terms,
running. The football stats show
that Johnson is third in rushing
to Eugene "Mercury" Morris of
West Texas State, and O. J.}
Simpson of Southern Cal.I
The elevation from Johnson's
tenth position last week to his
present standing, is due to the
immortal running display he put
on against Wisconsin. He now has
rushed 234 times in nine games
for a total of 1300 yards, 271 be-
hind the leader Morris, who has
played in one more game than
Johnson.
AWESOME RECORD
This awesome rushing record of
the Michigan captain unveils yet
another, truth to the searching
masses, the fact that Johnson is,
fourth in the country in scoring
with 104 points, trailing the lead-
er, Jim O'Brien of Cincinati by
27 points.
For enthusiasts that persist in
believing that there is more in
college football than the Wolver-
ines and the Buckeyes, some re-
markable reports have been dug'
up.
In the fight for first place in
total offense, Greg Cook of Cin-
cinnati stole the lead from Chuck
Hixson of S.M.U., as Cook has
rushed and passed for 27 touch-
downs and 2831 yards in 451 plays,
while Hixson trails with 2664
yards and 23 touchdowns in 496
plays.

back Dennis Brown is in twenty-
third position in total offense with
1612 yards in 310 plays, which
is a drop from his last week's
standing of nineteenth in the
country.
On further inspection of the
world grid scene, we see that Jerry
Levias of S.M.U. leads the coun-
try in pass receiving with 74 hauls
for 1025 yards in nine games, And
of special inportance to all Corn-
huskers is that Doane College of
Nebraska leads the small college
division with an average of 52.9
points per game.
Closer to home, Michigan's Tom
Curtis maintained his number two
post in interceptions with ten
snatches for 182 yards, second only
to Washington's Al Worley who
has 14 interceptions for 130 yards.

Pick ings

This is it.
The last, final piece of Gridde Pickings grit for this year.
In pursuit of their well-founded reputation of bungling, some
anonymous senior who chose the picks for the week decided to include
two games which are to be played next week.
The Daily was in a bind. They couldn't keep some poor soul away
from his delicious Cottage Inn Pizza by delaying the contest result
for a week. But then again, what about all those poor souls who spent
all those valuable hours figuring out their predictions for all twenty
teams.
After much fretting a decision was reached. The stomach lovers
won out. This weeks winner will be chosen on the basis of the 18
games which will be played this weekend.
However, to placate those who suffered through all twenty picks,
we will not announce which two games will be played next week.
In other words, all twenty games must be picked in order to qualify
for the pizza.

DAILY INTERVIEW:
ANSON MOUNT
The Daily's never-ending search to find the truth has led us
today to interview Anson Mount. Mr. Mount is presently Playboy
Magazine's "Pigskin Preview" prognosticator. Mr. Mount is noted as
having one of the most dependable set of predictions for college
football in the country. Mr. Mount is also noted for picking Michigan
to finish last in the Big Ten Conference this year with a 3-7 mark.
It was because of this prediction that the Daily attempted to
find out exactly what were the circumstances behind his prophecy,
and whbt were his feelings on the matter. After phoning the Playboy
Magazine office and the Statler-Hilton Inn in Dayton, Ohio, Mr.

Mount was finally contacted in
suburb north of Chicago.
Daily: Mr. Anson Mount?
Mount: Yes?
Daily: This is the Michigan
Daily.
Mount: THE WHAT?
Daily: The Michigan Daily in
Ann Arbor.
Mount: Oh my God!
Daily: We were calling to ask
you to ...
Mount: You want to know about
my predictions.
Daily: Well, as a matter of fact.
Mount: It looks like I blew it.
Daily: Sort of.
Mount: What exactly did I pick'
Michigan to finish?
Daily: Last in the conference.
Mount:!Oh Boy! I picked Pur-
due for first, Ohio State second,
Minnesota third, Indiana and
then Michigan State, and then
the rest. That isn't too bad, is it?
Daily; No, not at all.
Mount: I was a little off with
you guys.
Daily: Why exactly did you pick
Michigan to finish in last place?
Mount: I make these predictions
In March.
Daily: Uh huh.
Mount: Well, Michigan had a
fantastic line last year. They
lost almost the entire line
through graduation. Their
strength laid in their two backs,
(Dennis) Brown and (Ron)
Johnson. I thought it was al-
most inconceivable that t h e y
could stay healthy for the en-
tire season without a line to
protect them. Without Johnson,
Michigan wouldn't have been
nearly as successful.
Daily: Well, what are your pre-
dictions for the Ohio State con-
test?
Mount: It's going to be a rough
game. I'll pick Michigan 33-28.
Daily: Could you give us your
opinion on some other games
for our gridde picks contest.
Mount: Certainly, what are
they?
(See Gridde Pickings for his
picks)

his plus home in Mt. Prospect, a
Daily: Why did you pick Po-
mona over Occidental in the
last game?
Mount: That one was simple.
Pomona used to be a male
school. A few years ago they
went coed. Any team that has
girls rooting for it has to be
better. By the way, in case
you're interested, I haye an in-
teresting story about the last
Michigan football game I went
to.
Daily: Certainly, what is it?
Mount: The game was two years
ago, the North Carolina g a m e
when Michigan was -heavily fav-
ored and were upset badly. I was
sitting in the stands, and I
noticed some cute young thing
next to me. I introduced myself
and we talked for some time.
She was a student in the nurs-
ing school. A friend of mine was
giving a party that night, and
so I asked her if she wanted
to go. She agreed and we had a
marvelous time.
As I was taking her back be-
fore her curfew I kiddingly told
her to give me a call and we
would arrange for her to be+
tested for Playmate of the
Month. I later found out she
took me seriously. She called me
up and we had a photo session.
Well, let me tell you, she was
beautiful. She was Playmate i
year ago last January. She pre-
sently has just completed her
first starting role in a movie
and is now working on her
second.
Daily: It seems a Michigan coed
can go pretty far.
Mount: Well, that's true. By
the way, let me tell you I hope
you guys beat Ohio State. Any-
thing is preferable to Woody.
Woody Hayes, in my opinion,
is the world's last living Nean-
derthal.
Daily: I hope we beat them too.
Thank you for your comments.
Mount: It was my pleasure.

In order to keep your contact lenses as
comfortable and convenient as they were
meant to be, you have to take care of
them. But until now you needed two or
more separate solutions to properly
prepare and maintain your contacts. Not
with Lensine. Lensine is the one lens
solution for complete contact lens care.
Cleaning your contacts with Lensine
retards the buildup of foreign deposits on
the lenses. And soaking your contacts in
Lensine overnight assures you of proper
lens hygiene. You get a free soaking case
on the bottom of every bottle of Lensine.
It has been demonstrated that improper
storage between wearings may result in
the growth of bacteria on the lenses.
This is a sure cause of eye irritation and
in some cases can endanger your vision.
Bacteria cannot grow in Lensine which is
sterile, self-sanitizing, and antiseptic.
Just a drop or two of Lensine, before you
insert your lens, coats and lubricates it
allowing the lens to float more freely in
the eye's fluids. That's because
Lensine is an "isotonic" solution,
which means that it blends with
the natural fluids of the eye.
