'The publicity that I've received
as Wally's brother doesn't pres-
sure me to the point that I worry
about equaling or outdoing him.
Pubilcity does make me realize
that if I don't make it it will be
an awful setback, but this just
makes me try that much harder."
All-America Honors

"Clayt was a big star in high!
school," Wilhite explains. (Clayt
made all-America honors at Bay'
City Handy) "While I made hon-
orable mention all-state. I was
never quite as good. But I never,
felt any pressure from my familyl
or myself to equal his honors. I
figure we're two separate footballI
players, and I just try to do the
best I can without worrying about
what Clayt's doing."

Like Gabler, Wilhite, now a line-
backer, gives a great deal of credit
to his older brother for helping
him along. "Clayt and I are very
close." he reveals. "When I got
discouraged in high school, he'd
take me aside and straighten me
out. Now that we're both in col-
lege, it's a help, not a hindrance
to play on the same team. He's
always been a great friend I could
talk to."

Springtime is swingtime on a Yamaha sportcycle.So come on down
and see the new spring swinger, the Twin Jet 100. You'll flip, be-
cause the Twin Jet is a lotta sportcycle. 2 cylinders, 2 carburetors,
2 exhaust pipes, double everything in the GO department. The
styling is lean and low. It looks fast... and it is.The precise handling
is bred-in from the 250cc Grand Prix Champion Yamahas. Our
shop is the home of the Swinging World, so come on in for a ride
on the Twin Jet 100. It's so safe...if you can ride a bicycle, you
you can ride a Yamaha. Try one out for yourself and you'll see why

big shot.

Follett's understands the urge to express school
spirit and love for alma mater. And we encourage
this by stocking a wide variety of souvenir items,
both decorative and functional.
You can line your lair with pewter mugs, vases,
piggy banks, book ends, desk accessories, statues
and pennants, or you can get a school crest for
your chest.
So, whether you're a freshman satisfying an
identification need, an upper classman looking for
pertinent send-home gags and gadgets, or a senior in
search of nostalgic souvenirs; don't take the school
cannon. Follett's has lots of things much better.
