Spring Practice Foretells Gridiron Future

1965 was the "Year of the Spar-
tan," and 1966 will be the "Year
After." For the past 15 years, the
Big Tenrteam which played in the
Rose Bowl in the year before has
been able to average no better
than fifth place in the conference
in the year after.
The Spartan gridders picked all
the petals from the rose during
last year but then hit the thorns
in Pasadena on New Year's Day.
And even if they do as well this

year in the Big Ten they will not
get a chance to avenge that stun-
ning loss to UCLA.
Accolades Galore
While sweeping through their
10-game regular schedule unde-
feated and capturing their first
outright Big Ten title, the Spar-
tans gathered enough publicity
and exposure for eight of 22 start-
ing players to gain some sort of
all-American recognition. Three of
these have now graduated, along
with eight other starters, creating
additional headaches for Coach
Duffy Daugherty besides the post-
Rose Bowl year letdown.
But even with these odds against
them the Spartans figure to be
in the thick of the competition
for next year's pigskin crown. Led
by co-captains and all-Americans
Clint Jones and George Webster,
the defending champs will return
24 lettermen, including six offen-
sive and five defensive regulars.
Replacement Problems
The key to continued Spartan
success lies in finding replace-
ments for quarterback Steve Ju-
day, middle-guard Harold Lucas

and linebacker Ron Goovert, the
graduated all-Americans, as well
as for almost the entire defensive
line. At present, five candidates
are vieing for Juday's position,
with last year's back-up man,
Jimmy Raye, ranking as the top
prospect. Returning all-America
"Bubba" Smith will anchor the
defensive line with his 286 pounds.
Among the returnees from last
season's leading offensive squad
are end Gene Washington and
fullback Bob Apisa, two more of
the MSU all-Americans. Apisa
suffered a knee injury in the eose
Bowl and underwent post-season
surgery, but is expected to be
ready for action next fall.
Many of the problems created
by graduation will be resolved, as
they are every year, during the
spring practice sessions which are
held during April and May, Three
Big Ten schools, including MSU,
started spring drills earlier this
week. A fifth, Minnesota, begins
practice today, while the other
half of the league will open the
spring season next week.

Buckeyes have 23 lettermen re-
turning from last year's team
which finished with a 6-1 confer-
ence record, good for the runnerup
spot behind Michigan State. Miss-
ing from the club will be 14 let-
termen, including nine regulars
and ace place kicker Bob Funk.
The only returning starter from
last year's backfield is halfback
"Bo" Rein.
Chief problems to be solved in-
clude replacement of three-year
starters Don Unverferth, Willard
Sander, and Tom Barrington in
the offensive backfield. Several
holes must be plugged on the de-
fensive line, and linebackers must
be found to replace stalwarts Tom
Bugel and Ike Kelley.

Lose to Rain
The Michigan baseball team,
pretty confident after spending a
week in the Arizona sun, took on
the elements here in. Ann Arbor
yesterday and came out second
best. The result was cancellation
of the scheduled ball game with
the University of Detroit because

Barring any more April snows

freshmen today in a doubleheader
beginning at 1 p.m. at Ferry Field.
Yesterday's cancellation has been
rescheduled for next Wednesday,
April 13, at Ferry Field at!
3:30 p.m.

Head Coach Woody Hayes will
have to rely heavily on the up-
coming sophomores who make up
more than half of the 81-man
squad, but past experience sug-
gests that the Buckeyes will be
more than ready by the time the
season opener rolls around.
Purdue Prepares
Down in West Lafayette, Ind.,
the Purdue Boilermakers are pre-
paring for their 79th season of
gridiron competition. Of the 86
candidates out for the varsity this
spring, four starters from the of-
fensive platoon return along with
six defensive regulars. Quarterback
Bob Griese is back along with one
of his favorite pass targets, flank-
er Jim Finley. Joining Griese in
the backfield is junior Bob Hurst
who is recovering from a knee
operation. Lance Olssen, a 265-
pound tackle, is likewise sidelined
this spring after knee surgery.
A formidable rebuilding job
faces Coach Murray Warmath and
staff when the Minnesota Gophers
begin practice today. Only 17 let-
termen return from last year's
team which tied Purdue for third
place in the Big Ten. The greatest
passer in the school's history,
John Hankinson, is gone, along
with his favorite two receivers,
Aaron Brown and Kent Kramer.
Illini Need Backs
Illinois, last year's fifth place
finisher, also is faced with serious
gaps in the lineup due to gradua-
tion. Big Jim Grabowski, holder
of all the rushing records, is gone
to the pros, and with the depar-
ture of quarterback Fred Custardo
and halfback Sam Price further
weakening the backfield, Coach
Pete Elliott will rely heavily on a
pair of juniors, Cyril Pinder and
Doug Harford, to supply much-
needed running power. Other key
losses include safetyman Ron Acks,
cornerback Dick Kee and line-
backer Don Hansen.

ners, half of which were interior

The trouble with early morning classes is that you're too
sleepy. At late morning classes you're too hungry. At early
afternoon classes you're toy logy. At late afternoon classes
you're too hungry again. The fact is-and we might as well
face it-there is no good time of day to take a class.
What shall we do then? Abandon our colleges to the ivy?
I say no! I say America did not become the hope of man-
kind and the world's largest producer of butterfats and tal-
low by running away from a fight!
If you're always too hungry or too sleepy for class, then
let's hold classes when you're not too hungry or sleepy:
namely, while you're eating or sleeping.
Classes while eating are a simple matter. Just have a lec-
turer lecture while the eaters eat. But watch out for noisy
foods. I mean who can hear a lecturer lecture when every-
body is crunching celery or matzo or like that? Serve quiet
stuff-like anchovy paste on a doughnut, or steaming bowls
of lamb fat.
Now let us turn to the problem of learning while sleep-
ing. First, can it be done?
Yes, it can. Psychologists have proved that the brain is
definitely able to assimilate information during sleep. Take,
for instance, a recent experiment conducted by a leading
Eastern university (Stanford). A small tape recorder was
placed under the pillow of the subject, a freshman named
Wrobert Wright. When Wrobert was fast asleep, the re-
corder was turned on. Softly, all through the night, it re-
peated three statements in Wrobert's slumbering ear:
1. Herbert Spencer lived to the age of 109 and is called
"The Founder of English Eclectic Philosophy."
2.>The banana plant is not a tree but a large perennial
3. The Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated in 1914 at
Sarajevo by a young nationalist named Mjilas Cvetnic,
who has been called "The Trigger of World War I."

Burt Back
Wisconsin has Charlie Burt
back at quarterback, but several
problems will have to be solved if
the Badgers are to improve upon
their 2-5 record in conference play
last fall. Tom Jankowski, a 200-
pound power runner, is back to
bolster the offense, but defensive-
ly much improvement is needed.
Iowa let down Playboy Magazine
by failing to cop the league title
last year, but disappointed Hawk-
eye fans even more by suffering
through a winless campaign. With
passing artist Gary Snook gore,
the outlook is even bleaker.
That leavesonlyrMichigan in
the list of Western Conferem' e
teams. The Wolverines suffered
the fate of so many before them
when they sank to seventh place
in the league last year following
their Rose Bowl victory on Jan. 1,
1965. The big question now is:
what will happen during "The
Year After The Year After"?

When Wrobert awoke in the morning, the psychologists
said to him, "Herbert Spencer-lived to the age of 109. What
is he called?"
Wrobert promptly answered, "Perennial Herb."
Next they asked him, "What has Mjilas Cvetnik been
Wrobert replied, "Perennial Serb."
Finally they said, "Is the banana plant a tree?"
"To be honest," said Wrobert, "I don't know too much
about bananas. But if you gents want any information
about razor blades, I'm your man."
"Well," said the psychologists, "can you tell us a blade
that shaves closely and cleanly without nicking, pricking,
scratching, scraping, scoring, gouging, grinding, flaying or
"Yes, I can," said Wrobert. "PersonnaO Stainless Steel
Blades. Not only does Personna give you a true luxury
shave, but it gives you heaps and gobs and bushels and
barrels of true luxury shaves-each one nearly as truly lux-
urious as the first."
"Land's sake!" said the psychologists.
"Moreover," said Wrobert, "Personna is available not
only in the Double Edge style blade, but also in the Injec-
tor style blade."
"Great balls of fire!" said the psychologists g
