Loads Of Thrills
Between The, Yawvnsl
It was like -expecting the rind and getting the seeds. Like landing
a 'D' on an exam you figured you'd flunk. Better than nothing, but
not by much.
Michigan played bad enough to lose and won, thanks to a full-
blooded Cherokee who played the good guy in the spine-tingling
Paul Johnson, a sophomore tackle nicknamed "The Chief,"
pounded on a Dan Berry fumble on the Michigan 12 and 81,000 bored
fans sarcastically sighed "hurrah, we won."
The game was just chocked with thrills. For me the high-
light came early in the third quarter when a black and white
mongrel dog pranced onto the gridiron and romped to the mid-
field stripe. Then the doggie gracefully scooted off the turf to
the adulation of the crowd, which welcomed the intrusion of
anything that didn't know how to fumble a football.
Looking back on the frenzied contest other breathtaking moments.
stand out like zircons in a basket of rhinestones. There was the
announcement of the public address man that "an Oldsmobile car
with Michigan license plates has all its car doors locked with the
motor running." He could have substituted "Michigan football team"
for "Oldsmobile car."
And then there was the announcement with 11:00 left in the first
quarter for Dr. Irwin Small to call his office.
I eat at football games in inverse proportion to the excite-
ment of the contest. Observers will verify that I devoured nine
hotdogs, six Cokes, and three cups of tomato soup, and the eat-
ing pace was quickening as the game progressed. Fortunately a
football game is only 60 minutes or my colleagues in the press
box would had to roll me out on my side.
The game could have put a hypertensive insomniac to sleep. It
had all the zip of a Milltown. California had an offense as potent as
fizzless Vernors. Michigan's was hardly bubbling either, unless you
revel in fumbles. In such case you were probably titillated:
If you like to look at seats, I imagine you loved the ball
game. Michigan's new blue fiberglass benches were beautiful.
The band day festivities were nice too. The moment a young
fellow almost dropped his tuba on his toe stands out as one of
the bigger thrills of the football Saturday.
Another highlight was looking at the iridescent orange pylons
that have replaced flags as endzone and out of bounds markers.
The bright pylons and variegated band costumes were the most
colorful parts of the game.

MARCHERS BAND TOGETHER:
Overrun 'M' Stadium
Here is what
does for you!

31,417 fans who sat in Michigan
Indeed, it was a modern day
A1a mo as 14,000 instrument-
wielding fanatics stormed onto
the field to provide onlookers
with a spectacular halftime show.
The thoroughness with which
the plans were formulated was
evidenced by the flawless per-

the termination of the first half,

signal to begin the engagement.
The mid-afternoon s u n l i g h t
streamed down upon them, and
their assorted weaponry glittered
in the brilliant rays.
At the sound of a single gun-
shot, the rout was on, as the uni-
formed marchers flowed into the
void created by the rapid flight of
the two combative squads from
the fields of battle. Whitles blar-
ed shrill commands above the
background r o a r, as Revelli's
Raiders encompassed the grounds.
A special squadron moved quick-
ly and efficiently to forefront,
placing a tower in a prominent
position. Their leader scampered
rapidly to the top. The entire
area was choked off by the be-
wildering maze of uniforms; all
entrances and exits were clogged.
Trumpets blared forth the "Bat-
tle Hymn of the Republic," and
even this anachronism contributed
to the aura of militancy in this
modern-day Alamo. The efforts
of 1000 percussionists added to
the increasing tempo.
