played a few minutes last season.
Experience remains the best
teacher, however, and the Oregon
State pass "defenders" would have
trouble finding better teachers
than All-America c a n d i d a t e
Clancy and quarterback Vidmer.
Double Teaming
If it appeared to the casual ob-
server that Vidmer was favoring
Clancy in the first game, he was
absolutely correct. That was only
part of the game plan. The Wol-
verine coaching staff is out to
prove that their adept receiver
deserves to be double teamed by
the opposition, and another Sat-
urday like the last should con-
vince any "doubting Thomas"
around.
Whether double teaming the
Michigan captain will solve any
of the opposition's problems is an-
other matter. For one thing,
Clancy hauled in one aerial while
surrounded by three Beavers, and
for another, Clayt Wilhite will
be a very "lonesome end" with his
teammate getting all that com-
panionship.
Less than Roses
Looking much less effective than
a year ago when he chalked up
over 1000 yards rushing, Pete Pif-
er, Oregon State fullback, man-
aged to gain only 46 yards against
a tough Michigan defense. Andros
thought that his star back's per-
formance~ which also included two'
fumbles, was in part attributable
to a bad shoulder.
The score wasn't the only rea-
son Brothers had to feel depress-
ed. He completed as many passes
in Oregon State's opening drive
in the 1965 Rose Bowl as he did
all day Saturday when he made
good on only sx of 17 attempts.
The play of, the Beaver defensive
backfield contrasted sharply with
their Wolverine counterparts, with
John Rowser, Rick Volk, and Rick
Sygar combining for 23 tackles, in
addition to their fine anti-aircraft
work.

PASSING WAS DICK VIDMER'S game on Saturday, but every quarterback is sometimes forced to
run. On this play against Oregon State, the Michigan junior found no one open so he turned several
dazzling pirouettes before managing to scramble for a four yard advance. When receivers were open,
Vidmer picked up, more sizable gains. His average completion covered 22 yards.
BILL REED:
Other Colleges Shoot for Prestige-
To DefeatBigTenTeams

MICHIGAN was doubly repre-
sented in the recent Associated
Press All-Time Coaches .Poll based
on victory-loss percentages of all
mentors in the last 75 years. For-
mer coach FIELDING YOST, who
directed the Wolverines from
1897 to 1926 with only one year
off in that span, placed fourth
on the list with a record of 196
wins, 36 setbacks, and 12 ties.
Present Athletic Director FRITZ
CRISLER ranked thirteenth in
the figuring by accumulating 116
victories in his 18 seasons against
only 32 defeats, and 9 ties. Other
notables on the list ' included
KNUTE ROCKNE, who finished
first, followed by FRANK LEAHY,
also from Notre Dame. Oklahoma's
former leader BUD WILKINSON
garnered seventh place in the
standings.
Today's news also features some
hellos and good-byes. First, a wel-
come back to REGGIE HARDING,
the seven foot center of the DE-
TROIT PISTONS who ws sus-
pended by the NBA a year ago.
League commissioner WALTER
KENNEDY ended the suspension
yesterday. Part of the reason for
Kennedy's change of heart may
have been Harding's plan to sue
if his appeal was rejected.

Another missing face will be
MAC SPEEDIE, head coach of the
American Football League's DEN-
VER BRONCOS. Speedie resigned
from the post Sunday, three hours
after his team lost to Boston, 24-
10. He said the move was in the
best interests of the team. Most
likely, the clL.b's top brass felt
the same way.{
Hoping not to be gone too long#
is JOHNNY MORRIS, who under-
goes surgery today. The CHICAGO
BEARS' great flankerback was in-
jured at the beginning of Friday
night's 31-17 defeat at Los An-
geles. There is hope that Morris
will be able to return for the final
few games of the season.

made a passing score of 11 and

This week's guest selector is Dr.

he pick the hockey veterans over
