tant is the fact that he threw a

What is very important is the
fact that the Giants won 16-7,
something they hadn't done since
somewhere in the middle of last
season.
What is extremely important is
the fact that the Giants are des-
perate, the Giants' PR men are
desperate, and the New York
sports writers are desperate. So
Timberlake has become "a take
charge quarterback" and a hot
prospect to direct the running of
Allie Sherman's blossoming "Baby
Bull" backfield.
This means that he has shown
more poise with less experience

Football Tickets
You say you want to go to the football games.
That's not particularly surprising. Last year some 375,000
people filtered into the largest college-owned stadium in the
world to see the Michigan Wolverines. Also some 18,225 students
bought football coupons at 12 bucks a shot to get in.
And ticket manager Don Weir says that season ticket
sales are up 45 per sent this year with both Michigan State
(already a sellout) and Ohio State in Ann Arbor. Weir also
expects student ticket consumption to rise.
The student coupon is a relatively new addition to the
campus. Three years ago it was instituted in an effort to raise
funds to build a new basketball fieldhouse. The ground has
yet to be scratched for the proposed structure.
The coupon system will work as it did last year. Students
buy their athletic card at Waterman Gym and then redeem
during the first week of classes for a reserved seat at every
game. Manager Weir emphasizes that tickets will be dispensed
strictly on a one man-one ticket basis.
Like Congress, the system is based on seniority. Students
who have been at Michigan for three or more years get top
priority, or Group 4 seats. Group 3 seats are for those in
attendance for two or more years, and so it goes down to the
newcomers. Tickets for Group 4 will be distributed only on
Monday, August 30 from 8:30 to 4:30. Group 3 will be passed
on Tuesday, August 31, Group 2 on September 1, and Group 1
on September 2.
The faculty has a system which works similarly. A $15
athletic card entitles faculty and University employees admit-
tance to football games.
Freshmen who are not color blind and like the cameraderie
of sitting with their peers might like the Block M which puts
them in the center of the end zone rather than the corners of
the stadium.
For fans who hanker to see the Wolverines play away from
home; seats can be bought for $5 at the Michigan ticket office.
Weir has 2500 tickets per away game.

g than any of the other Giant quar-
terbacks: Gary Wood (entering
- his second pro season), Henry
_ Schichtle (who seems destined to
become an "almost was" quarter-
back in the Giant tradition of
Lee Grosscup and 'Glynn Grif-
fing), and rookie John Torok (who
had his chance).
Anyhow, he got by Sherman's
first quarterback cut. Torok
didn't.
diAlthough Timberlake's momen-
tum seems to be strictly on pa-
per-newsprint--it is there, and
the ex-Wolverine star has the
ability to take advantage of his
genuine shot at a steady job.

However, the Browns don't pay
people to grow old gracefully and
Anthony was cut also.
Henderson, who came to the
Lions in a trade with the Phila-
delphia Eagles, isn't likely to make
it on offense in competition with
the NFL's finest collection of re-
ceivers. But his defensive prow-
ess could be valuable to an ag-

big with the Bills last year, beat-
ing out Jim Dunaway at guard,
but was knocked from a starting
spot early with a broken ankle
which idled him for the rest of
the season. Now he mrust fight
his way back onto a team which
has become the AFL champion, no
easy task. But Keating, whose
brother is likely to start for the
Blue at guard this year, has def-
initely been tapped for a starting
spot in the Bills' upcoming exhibi-
tion games.
O'Donnell is having less suc-
cess at present. Coming off a
year in which he saw little ac-
tion, the ex-Wolverine captain is
looking toward advancement on-
the Buffalo squad and is now in
a better position to do so after a
short but impressive appearance
against the Jets last week.
Timberlake spoke or the men
around him as bigger, faster, mak-
ing fewer mistakes . . . profession-
als.
And that of course is why, as
with all professional sports, their
status and address is a day to day
proposition.
So there they are, or were, as
of today.I
