Both runners advanced when
third baseman Tracewski dropped
a throw from catcher Jim Price
on a double steal attempt. But

they were left s.tranded as Lolich
struck out Rich Reichardt, got
Bubba Morton on a tap in front
of the plate and struck out Bobby

Lolich fanned 12 batters and
walked only one in beating the
Angels for the second time this
season against two losses.

The Chicago. Bears also figure
to improve, but like the Lions,
they have little chance to de-
throne ,the champion Packers. For!
the first time in umpteen years
the Bears will not be coached by
Papa Bear, but by Jim Dooley, a
former Bear end. Defeating the
Cowboys and Packers in early
exhibition, the Bears have been
most impressive.
BILLBOARD
The University of Michigan
Tae Kwon Do Association pre-
sents an hour long spectacular
Korean Karata demonstration.
There will be no charge for the.
event which begins at 8 p.m.
Saturday, Aug. 31, At Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre in Mich-
igan League. Firewood will also
be available cheap.

However, the Bears still lack
the top-notch quarterbacking
which is necessary for a strong
contending team. Jack Concannoh
has never been a capable passer,
but Gale Sayers adds all the run-.
ning punch which could possibly
be asked for by Dooley. In the
offensive line George Seals' and
Mike Pile provide very adequate
blocking, but the Bear line has
been known to be rather weak
at times. j
The Bear defense however re-
mains as strong as ever. Led by
All-Pro middle linebacker D i c k
Butkus, the red dogging Bear deb1
fense is able to constantly keep its
opponents off balance. The
secondary is stocke# with such
veterans as Roosevelt Taylor and
Rlichie Petibon and the line, with
Ed O'Bradovich and Marty Ams-
ler, can repel any thrust in its
direction.
The Minnesota Vikings, coach-
ed jby H. P. "Bud" Grant, will
still be somewhat weak despite a
wealth of young talent from the
last two drafts. However, the'
quarterback dearth which has
existed since Fran Tarkenton will
likely be solved by Gary Cuozzo,
the ex-back-up man for Johnny
Unitas.
In the backfield with Cuozzo,
the Vikings have tiwo very capable
ballcarriers in Dave Osborne, and
Bill Brown who has consistently
been among the top ground gain-
ers in the league. Blocking for
these runners, the Vikings line is
among the best in football. Head-
ing this line are all-pros Mike
Tingelhoff at center and tackle
Grady Alderman. ,

Words like scrum, throw-in,
touch out, and try may seem odd
now, but within four weeks most
of them will be playing this Eng-
lish brand of football.
Several films gave them a gen-
eral idea of this non-stop, no-
substitution game. The learning
really starts, though, on the prac-
tice field next Saturday.
John Robson, a professor in the
public health department, is the
coach and president of the Rugby
Club. It is his responsibility to
teach these boys the fundamentals
of Britain's favorite pastime.
Stamina is the most necessary
qualification, as old members like
Tom Raboine, David Campbell,
and this year's team captain David
Mildner, can verify.
