became one of four Giant reserves
placed on waivers Tuesday.
His football future now will have
to be either on some other pro
team, some semi-pro team or on
the Giant taxi squad.
All in all, that's still somewhat
more promising than Mel An-
thony's four-week stint with the
Browns last year. Anthony was
another member of the 1964 Rose
The only player off that team
that is still earning his cold cash
is John Henderson.
Henderson is making it with the
Detroit Lions (no great accom-
plishment in itself) after being
traded from the. Eagles last year.
Coach Harry Gilmer tried the for-
mer all-time top Wolverine pass
receiver (before Jack Clancy) only
briefly on offense.
But he soon found the ideal slot
for him in the aging Lion second-
ary as heir to Dick (Night Train)
Henderson was one of three for-
mer Wolverine ends playing with
the Lions last year. All-Pro Ron
Kramer and offensive captain
Terry Barr were the others.
Barr has since retired to the
less bloody role of an insurance
Back in the middle fifties, when
Barr signed with the pros, draft
picks were commanding meager
bonuses of $10,000 to $20,000. That
was before the birth of the oil-
rich, player-poor American Foot-
ball League and the subsequent

There was, of course, Harold
(The Thing) Lucas who couldn't
stomach the gut-busting waist-re-
ducing diet of the pros-(either
that or the degrading worldliness
of the money war) -and walked
away from the breakfast table and

Yearby and Mack were more
ambitious and sweated through
All-Star training under Johnny
Sauer and then joined their re-
Jet coach Weeb Ewbank main-
tains that Yearby is "a natural
athlete and will be put in the line-
up someplace." As of yet, however,
Ewbank hasn't found the spot and
Yearby is getting seasick from be-
ing tossed back and forth.
He started out as an offensive
end, the position he "preferred,"
but soon was moved over to a de-
fensive end slot and has more re-
cently been shifted to lineback-
At only 230 pounds, Yearby isn't
the biggest linebacker in the busi-
ness, and the weeks with the All-
Stars and the constant experi-
menting have given him little
chance to learn the hundred-odd
Consequently, he's been having
trouble getting any higher than
third string and has even been
playing on the "suicide squad."
Mack, on the other hand, has
had more success with the Rams
and is expected to start at offen-
He will join another former
Wolverine star-Tom Keating-as

FORMER MICHIGAN FULLBACK Mel Anthony (37) streaks into
the end zone completing the longest run from scrimmage in Rose
Bowl history against Oregon State, Jan. 1, 1965. Anthony, who
was named most valuable player of the game, ran 84 yards to aid
the Wolverines in their 34-7 victory over the Beavers. Trailing

from the roster and is looking for
work in Canada.
There are a few other ex-Wol-
verines, like Bennie McRae of the
Bears, scattered throughout the
pro ranks as Michigan remains a
top contributor to the 100-plus
former Big Ten player store.
Yearby, Mack and Clancy will
probably make history, though, as
the highest-paid bonus babies off
a Wolverine team.
Mack and Yearby already have
their blank checks filled out, while
Clancy and his lawyer will have
their chance later this fall.
Clancy represents a built-in
wrinkle that still has to be ironed
out of the pro merger pact, since
both St. Louis of the NFL and
Miami of the AFL drafted him in
the 1965 draft.
Whatever sum he finally settles
for-and it likely will be impres-
sive-it will still be anti-climatic
after last year's dollar-dealing
three-ring circus acts between two
clubs and a player.
