Gridders

set for

confrontation

By CHRIS TERAS
According to a hot rumor
buzzing around the Michigan
athletic campus, grid coach
Bo Schembechler is planning
to take his squad to Washing-
ton this Saturday instead of
Iowa City.
It is said that Schembechler is
not worried about the forfeit be-
cause he feels that all Michigan
has to do is knock off Ohio tate
Nov. 22 in order to be virtually
assured of the Rose Bowl bid.
Although Schembechler refused
to comment on this reportedly
super-secret move, he did' admit
that his team is healthy for this
week's game (march?).
The most serious injury last
week was middle linebacker Marty'
Huff, whose knee was twisted in
the first half of the Wisconsin
contest. He did not even travel to
Illinois, but he was working out
yesterday with the first string de-
fensive unit.
The joint was heavily taped, and
Huff appeared to move with some;
difficulty at times, but his overall'
agility seemed to be good. Schem-
bechler, in fact, was sufficiently
satisfied with Huff's performance
that he predicted: "Marty will be
all right for Iowa. We're definite-
ly planning to play him."
It may be noted that Schem-
bechler revealed absolutely no
hints of the possible trip to the
nation's capitol.)
Fans should not fear that Huff's'
enudrance will be down this Sat-:
urday because of the week-long
practice layoff, as he was run-
ning 50-Yard windsprints after his
teammates headed for the showers.
Other than Huff, only tailback
Glenn Doughty is still hurting.

NIGHT EDITOR:
ERIC SIEGEL
Schembechler said, "but it's going
better all the time."
He went on to comment on
Doughty's inability to produce
rushing yardage as he had earlier,
in the year. "I think his confi-
dence is a more serious problem
than the ankle," he said. "He
doesn't have enough' faith in his
speed to make the cuts - he'll
start stuttering before he hits the
hole, and this slows him up a
little."
Billy Taylor, the man who now
plays in front of Doughty, was
working out with the first team
offense again yesterday, but Sch-
embechler said that both he and
Doughty will be playing on Satur-
day.
And if, by chance, Saturday sees
the Wolverines going against the
Hawkeyes, it looks like the home
team had better have its pass de-
fense ready. Although Schembech-
ler said that "their pass defense
is just a little better than their
rushing defense," it can't be that
strong because the Wolverines
were throwing a lot of passes yes-
terday.
Michigan's top two quarter-
backs, Don Moorhead and Jim
Betts were even throwing a few
long ones. This weapon hasn't
been used very often to date.
That should be good news to
Washington stay-aways who pre-

"AS A RESULT of his actions,"
Gayton said, "a communications'
chasm has been created between
Coach Owens and myself that can-
not be spanned.
"This, in effect, has nullified
the most integral part of my job
as mediator between Coach Owens
and the black athletes," Gayton
said.
Owens suspended Harvey Blanks,
Greg Alex, Ralph Bayard and La-
Mar Mills from the team Oct. 30.
He reinstated all but Blanks Sun-
day.
Despite an ankle broken in
spring training, Blanks was touted
by the school as an All-American
candidate this year.
Gayton's lawyer-brother Gary,
a former Husky athlete who rep-
resented the four suspended blacks
and threatened the school with a
civil rights suit, said Sunday hisI
firm will sue on behalf of Blanks
if he is not reinstated.
Carver Gayton said Monday he
is "dismayed" that Blanks was
not reinstated along with the other
three.

Gridde Pickings

-Associated Press
It's a bird! I's a plane!
No, it's the Internationl Jumping Event at the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in
New York, where an unidentified rider takes his mount up and over a three foot hurdle in the team
competition. Earlier in the night, a rider was thrown from his horse in the same event, but neither
was injured.
THE PLOT THICKENS

We got a letter the other day, and things being what they are, we
decided we'd print it.
Dyar Sirs:
We would like to call attention to a slight typographical
error in the Saturday, November 8, 1969 Daily, wherein you in-
advertently reported the score of the SCO-Daily Libel game as
6-29 in favor of SCO. While you may have been sufficiently con-
scious after your rough game to get the right numerals, your
drowsiness prevented you from putting them in the correct order,
which was 69-2 in favor of SCO. We would also like to point out
that we missed the PAT on our tenth TD due to lack of interest
in a dull game, and that the Daily score came on a three yard
field goal with one point being subtracted for having seventeen
men on the field - fourteen on the blocking line, and two to hold
the ball for the kicker. These minor errors do not alter the Libel
claim to have "destroyed SCO", as we are not used to either
being held to such a lopv score, or being scored upon. We regret
the occurrence of such errors, and we hope that they will be
eliminated in the future.
'Mad Dog" Wellin and the rest of the SCO
Demolition Crew
Most of the Libels had no comment on the letter -- they were
too busy rolling on the ground laughing. However, one of the fear-
less Libels, who chose not to be identified for fear his display of
intellect might give him an unfair advantage when it came to the
voting for the Heismann trophy, had this comment: "I'll never take
the advice of the bumbling turkeys at sco on a math course - they
can't even get their numbers straight, let alone count.
Anyway, here are the picks of Iowa Senator Howard Hughes, this
week's guest selector. Give us your picks by midnight Friday and win
a Cottage Inn pizza.

HyT ne Associated Press
A KANSAS CITY - National Basketball Association Commis-
sioner Walter Kennedy said yesterday discussions between his league
and the rival American Basketball Association are at a standstill, de-
claring, "there are no intentions of a merger with the ABA."
Earlier this year there were informal talks between the two
leagues with a merger the ultimate aim of some, but Kennedy said,
"We are having no talks with the ABA and haven't had any for the
past few months. We have no plans to get together with the ABA."
Asked if this might mean renewed warfare between the leagues
for signing top college talent this coming basketball season, Kennedya
replied, "We will not get into a bidding war for college players. I think
the Lew Alcindor case proved that."
" LONDON - Avery Brundage, 82-year-old president of the
International Olympic Committee, warned yesterday that any coun-1

Brundage referred to the Black Power protest by several Ameri-
can Negroes at the Mexican Olympics last year and said:

"Favorites have won and favorites have been knocked off -

Mollenkopf added that if football facts and statistics for the sea-

md university officials are not completely ruling out the possibility
:f a bowl game.
The Rev. Theodore M. Hesbaugh. president of Notre Dame said
,esterday, "There is nothing on it yet in any way because our old
policy holds. If we get around it it, we'll announce it."
Notre Dame's police has been no bowl games since 1925 when the
[rish made their only post season appearance. Notre Dame went to
the Rose Bowl that year and defeated Stanford 27-10.
Irish football Coach Ara Parseghian is all for Notre Dame ac-
,epting a bowl bid but adds, "I have accepted Notre Dame's policy
against bowl games and have endorsed it."
0 SAO PAULO, Brazil - As if soccer star Pele isn't having
enough trouble scoring his 1,000th goal, Sao Paulo newspapers re-

are putting a hex on him.
Pele's team, Santos, plays Santa Cruz in Recife on Wednesday.
Pele has been shut out in his last two games, and his career goal
total has remained frozen at 996 for more than a week.

more trouble yesterday when a Welsh star refused to play against
them and moves were made to ban them from a stadium in Scotland.
Jeff Palmer announced he will not play for the Welsh team
