Defense
By GRAYLE HOWLETT
If the defensive unit which
played for the Blue in yesterday's
4 scrimmage would have been
around when that crane fell
through the All-Events Building,
no doubt they would have some-
how stopped it.
Anyway, this was the general
consensus of the White squadp

one yard into the end zone. The
70-yard drive featured the work-
horse running of Fisher and Jim
Detwiler, who -replaced Sharpe.
Vidmer left the ground game long
enough to complete two passes,
one a 30-yard toss to Jack Clancy
which got the Blue out of a second
and 29-yard hole, and the other an
8-yard pass to Clayt Wilhite which
gave the Blue a first down at the
White's 20. Sygar's placement
made it 13-0 and that's the way
the first half ended.
Elliott later mentioned that de-
,he didn't. But don't put it past

overall disappointing showing of
disappears entirely from view,
spite the good showing of the
regulars in the first half the squad
still does not have "anywhere near
the polish that we'll need. One
major problem is that the boys
are tired, leg tired, and it's bound
to hurt their performance."
Early in the third period, the
Blue recovered a fumbled punt re-
turn deep in the White territory.

ran for 12, threw to Clancy for
22 down to the 4-yard line, and
ward went the final 4 off tackle.
With Sygar's extra point, the reg-
ulars led 20-0.
Sharpe finished the third per-
lod scoring with the best run of
the day, a 35-yard scamper which
was set up by the running of
Fisher and Detwiler, and a 9-yard
side-line pattern to Clancy. Sygar
booted through his third straight
placement to give the Blue a 27-0
edge.
Gift Situation
Meanwhile over on the White's
side, their offense still couldn't
penetrate so Coach Elliott figured
he'd give them a lift by placing
the ball on the Blue's five and at
the same time give his No. 1 de-
fensive unit some goal-line stand
practice. In four tries, the White
netted about two yards and it
looked like you couldn't even give
them a score.
The second string backfield for
the Blue, consisting of John
Thomas at quarterback, Ron John-
son and Jim Detwiler at the halves,
and John Reynolds at fullback,
drove for the last two scores witht
Reynolds and Johnson the work-
horses. Early in the fourth stanza
Reynolds plunged one yard for the
counter while Johnson closed out
the scoring with a two-yard jour-
ney he had set up with a 21-yard
romp ending inside the five. Paul
D'Eramo made one of two extra
points to bring the count to 40-0.
Detwiler Doubtful
The big question which has
haunted the Wolverines for the
spring and fall practice sessions
still went unanswered after yester-
day's scrimmage: Will Detwiler be
ready to go? Elliott noted that
his performances had increased
from the last two scrimmages but
added that he "won't make a de-
cision on whether to start Jim
until the middle of the week."
If Detwiler does not start
against Oregon State a week from
today, his replacement will be
Sharpe, probably the only individ-
ual star from yesterday's scrim-
mage. "Sharpe did real well,"
Elliott noted, "and even if he did
start the offense would not have
to change at all because he's as
fine a pass receiver as Detwiler."
Rounding out the offensive show

was a variety of offensive featur-
ing the "I" formation, along with
the standard "I" and the Wing-T.
"Actually, we used the 'I' forma-
tion a little last year against
Michigan State so it shouldn't be
a total surprise, but not until this
fall have we used it this much,"
Elliott said.
Noticeably absent was the pass-
ing game which was promised to
be used extensively. Vidmer kept
to the ground most of the first
half under orders from the coach-
ing staff and threw only when the
situation warranted it.
"Vidmer was calling all his plays
and did a real fine job," Elliott
commented, "and, of course there
were certain plays that I second-
guessed him on. But I suppose he
doesn't always agree with my calls
either."
Defense: Experimentation
On defense, the part Elliott has
had to experiment with because
of graduation and certain key in-
juries, he seemed reticent to com-
ment: 'The defense was outstand-
ing but remember that both teams
were highly uneven. Stincic did a
good job today and continues to
come along real well. We tried
Porter at tackle and he also did a
fine job. The whole thing is to
get some flexibility in the interior
Gym Gets
Par- Three
Course Use
The par-three nine-hole golf
course on Main Street will here-
after be reserved for the exclusive
use of the Department of Physical
Education on weekdays, the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics said yesterday.
The measure is intended to re-
lieve some of the pressure on the
overcrowded University golf course
before it is completely overrun
with golfing instruction.
The par-three course will remain
open to the university community
on weekends and holidays at the
rate of two rounds for 50c for stu-
dents and $1.00 for others.

line, and if we could only settlej
down we'd have this."
Oregon Offense
Ellott reiterated after the scrim-
mage that "that from here on out
we're concentrating on our first
game with Oregon State. Even to-
day we were running some of the
Oregon State plays on offense and
the Whitesquad was using a sim-
ilar defense.
"Like I said before, these boys
are a little tired so we'll concen-
trate on doing things to bring
their legs back into shape.
"We're still not ready yet but at
least we have that extra day to
get us in shape."
With the last big test of the
practice season over and the same
things nagging at the Wolverines
which were present at the end of
the 1965 season, namely filling'
the void left by Cecchini, Yearby,
and Mack, the absence of a full-
time quarterback, and the mucles
around Detwiler's knee, maybe
Coach Elliott will allow all of us
the same courtesy of second-guess-
ing his calls.

Head Coach B u m p Elliott,
chuckling over the lopsided score,
commented that "the two teams
were very uneven and we made
them that way because we didn't
want this scrimmage to be a hard'
test.".
