Sports Editor
To the United Press Interna-
tional reporter, it was a game
Michigan lost to Purdue, 22-21, be-
cause Stan Kemp's punt was
blocked and resulted in a touch-
down. (P.S. At the end of the
game, Michigan tried a long diffi-
cult field goal which was way, way
off mark.)
To Purdue's chief apostle, Coach
Jack Mollenkopf it was a game
won because "I prayed to the Lord
twice, and both times my prayers
were answered." (P.S. "I was
happy to see that field goal kick.")
To the Boilermaker fans, it was
a great win and a giant step to-
ward the Rose Bowl (P.S. "It's a
good thing that guy on Michigan
can't kick a decent field goal.")
But to Wolverine fans - those
wonderfully biased, wildly yelping,
umbrella waving, second guessing
people who want to see the Wol-
verines win so badly they get
laryngitis, toothaches, and swollen
knuckles-to those people Mich-
igan lost because Bump Elliott sent
Rick Sygar into the game with

just under two minutes left and
told the kid to boot a field goal
on a fourth and one with the ball
quivering on the Purdue 25-yard
line and the wind ripping at his
right profile.
These loyal Michigan fans be-
lieved it was not a time to try for
a winning three-pointer and em-
phasized their feelings with a
heart warming boo that must have
made Sygar feel awfully alone on
a very dingy Saturday afternoon.
If ...
After the game, Elliott looked
equally friendless. He didn't turn
his back on the crowd's criticism.
His eyes idly dazed at the locker
room cement floor and he whis-
pered, "If I had it to do over
again, I might have done it dif-
"He can kick it that far, but I
might have done it differently.
When a coach starts second guess-
ing himself, though, he's had it."
It was an agonizing call, the
kind you hate to make. And Elliott
hated to make it. It was a miser-
able failure, and he became the
villain, the scapegoat, the coward,
the man who wrecked Michigan's

chances for the Rose Bowl.
He showed the signs and looked
very tired and very human for the
job of a superman-coach of a Big
Ten football team.
Just One of Those Days
But even aside from the field
goal, it was the kind of game that
drives spectators to tear up their
programs and induces coaches to
try the same with their play dia-
grams. All that goes into a game-
scouting the opponent, poring
over reels of old films, developing
and refining the game plan, the
hours of practicing, learning,
sweating. All for one hour by the
time keeper's watch piece.
If all works, you win, and you're
happy. If it doesn't, you fight back
the tears, try to realize your mis-
takes, and get ready for the next
But when you do everything
right and still lose, it strangles any
laughter and smothers any whim-
pers. It slashes your nerve endings
and grates at your memory. The
stench lingers in the air, the burn
stings without relief.
You just can't accept 'a defeat
that you won. If you hold their

All-America quarterback to seven
completions for 63 yards, and if
you out gain them by almost 200
yards, you win.
When the scoreboard says other-
wise, you can only wonder why.
Elliott listened to a sympathetic
reporter remind him of Michigan's
bad breaks--a blocked punt, a
safety, fumbles on the goal line ...
And then Elliott leaned back and
pushed a shallow grin on his white
face. "Oh come now, it's only a
game. It's just for fun . . . Just
for fun." And you knew how El-
liott wanted to find some way to
take out his frustration. Some way
to explain a defeat that was a vic-
tory, a game which was planned
for perfectly, executed precisely,
and still lost.
Turning of the Tide
The answer was more than a
field goal try. If one looks back to
a specific play, or rather a series,
it would be best to turn to the
third quarter when the Wolverines
had the ball on the Purdue two-
yard line with four chances to get
it over.
The first gained only a yard,
the second one was fumbled by

Jim Detwiler, but recovered at the
same spot by Carl Ward. And the
third one was bungled once again,
and there was no final try.
"The first fumble was just an
ordinary thing," explained Dick
Vidmer. "But the second one was
my fault. Jim (Detwiler) holds his
hands a special way and I have
to give him the hand off different-
ly than other players. I just
'I'd Bet My House...
"That's what hurt the most,"
said Elliott. "You can argue about
the field goal, but this was a sure
score." Line coach Tony Mason
was even more explicit: "I would
have bet my house we would have
scored a touchdown."
The other "breaks" or "goofs"
are almost too painful for a Mich-
igan fan to hear.
Late in the third quarter, Bob
Griese boomed a long punt over
the head of lone safety Sgyar. As
he raced back after it, the ball
grazed the side of his maize trous-
ers and kept rolling. It was Sygar's
turn for an agonizing decision.

Hold Draft
At Harvard
Students Vote Against
Policy of Compiling
Their Class Rank
Students at Harvard College,
voting in a draft referendum, have
overwhelmingly expressed dissat-
isfaction with the Selective Serv-
ice System's requirement that
schools compile class rank.
In addition, over 84 per cent of
those who responded backed the
institution of a system of "al-
ternative service," while 70 per
cent voted against a possible lot-

TV referendum, held last week,
drew only 43 per cent of the uni-
versity's males. The results of
the poll will be sent to the fac-
ulty for consideration in discus-
sions on Harvard's policy toward
Selective Service.
Sixty-five per cent of the stu-
dents felt they deserved draft de-
ferments solely because they were
students. Most of the students who
repudiated the university's policy
on rankings indicated they object-
ed for reasons of "educational pol-,
icy" rather than for any moral
stand against student deferments
as being discriminatory.
Although most students voting
felt that class ranking should play
no part in the deferment sys-
tem, more than 65 per cent felt
the qualification test should be re-
About 70 per cent indicated the
present system does not really
make them worry more about their
grades, but over half the fresh-
men indicated they worried more
because of tighter deferment
guidelines for freshmen.
The college split almost evenly
on the question of whether they
would have requested their classj
ranks if the university had not
sent it to them. About five per!
cent said they refused to forwardj
the cards as a matter of con-
The referendum also showedl
that over two-thirds of the up-
perclassmen voting took the qual-

Are college honors program courses open to freshmen and
sophomores in the regular honors program? Why does the cata-
logue say that faculty members teaching college honors courses
request an interview with students signing up for these courses?
College honors courses, while designed for upperclassmen,
are open to other students. Freshmen and sophomores are allowed
to take them. Usually, however, they must get permission of the
teaching instructor before they can register for the, class. Prof.
Otto Graf, chairman of the Honors Council, says that the faculty
members themselves request the interviews in order to guarantee
that their students interests and abilities qualify them for their
particular course.
The plaque in front of the Union says John Kennedy first
proposed the Peace Corps there on Oct. 14, 1960, while he was
campaigning for President, at two o'clock in the morning. Was
he coming in late from a partyor something?-M.W.
No late parties, just a late plane flight. Kennedy didn't land
at Willow Run Airport until 1:40 a.m., and was further delayed
driving to Ann Arbor. Despite the unlikely hour, Kennedy was
greeted by a crowd of 10,000. After spending the night in town,
Kennedy went on a whistle-stop tour of the state. For the event
all University women were given special late permission.
I am in the executive secretary program in the literary col-
lege. I took 21 hours from the Business Administration school. I
needed 15 hours for the program. My counselor never told me
that I could take only 12 hours in another school as credit toward
graduation. I am planning to graduate this spring. Can I get all
my Business Administration credits to count for graduation?-M.P.
This program is now being phased out, but your credits will
probably count towards graduation since the program was in
effect when you entered. However, as this is an individual case
your record will have to be checked by your counselor. In this
particular instance it is permissible to take more than 12 hours
in another school since you needed 15 for the program.

Detroit Poor Leave Barricades,
Present Grievances to City Hall,

Daily News Analysis
The confrontation between the
poor and the establishment has
moved out of the streets and into
executive offices of Detroit as the
West Central Organization at-
tempts to consolidate gains won
from the city through demonstra-
For the moment at least, the
man-the-barricades p h a s e of
WCO's war on urban renewal
policy is over. The battle for hous-
ing is now in a stage of serious
negotiations between WCO, which
claims to represent the people liv-
ing in areas affected by urban
renewal projects, and city, state,
and federal policy makers.
WCO now faces what is prob-
ably the most difficult stage in its
struggle to build and maintain a
permanent community organiza-
tion which will have a lasting ef-
fect on the distribution of power
in Detroit.
Duringthe battle of Hobart St.,
in which WCO attempted on sev-
eral occasions to move a family
into an unoccupied home in an
urban renewal project, there was
a rallying of support to the cause
of the poor.
Clergy Participate
One of the most significant
features of the battle of Hobart St.
was the. participation of a large
number of clergymen. In the three
attempts to take possession of the
house, a total of 21 clergymen were
The Msgr. Rev. John F. Dearden,
Archbishop of Detroit, speaking
during the demonstrations, chal-
lenged the role of the church as
"a kind of security blanket'
against the harsh realities of
everyday existence." Over 150
clergymen presented themselves at
the office of Mayor Jerome P.
Cavanagh and demanded that the
mayor arrest them in a gesture of
sympathy and solidarity with the
21 ministers previously arrested.
The clerical support was not un-
animous, however. Msgr. Hubert

A. Maine, a parish priest and
columnist in the Detroit News
charged that the clergymen's "ap-
peal to a 'higher law' that sup-
posedly justifies their, illegal ac-
tions is sheer sentimentally and is
unworthy of persons with formal
training in theology."
Both Detroit newspapers report-
ed letters coming in approximately
of 3:2 against the actions of :he
In terms of tangible accomplish-
ments, the battle of Hobart St.,
ended as pretty much a standoff.
The object of all the controversy,
the house at 5778 Hobart, remainsj
vacant. But the fight sparked by
the confrontation goes on. WCO
is still engaged in negotiations
with the mayor and the Detroit
Housing Commission of over relo-
cation policy . in urban renewal
When WCO attempted to move!
a family into the house a second
time, Robert Weaver, secretary for
Housing and Urban Development

ruled that the City of De.troit
could not allow occupation of
dwellings condemned in federally
sponsored urban renewal projects.
A WCO delegation plans to go
to Washington this week to confer
with Weaver and seeks to have the
HUD urban r e n e w a 1 policies
Plan to File Suit
WCO also plans to file suit in
Federal District Court in the near
future seeking to enjoin the city
from dislocating people in urban
renewal projects without pro-
viding suitable replacement hous-
ing which the poor can afford.
The suit would be the first major
major legal challenge to urban
renewal and even if the court rules
against them, WCO feels that
there will have been something
gained in raising the issue public-
WCO has also received a boost
from a bill passed by the State
Legislature last week. The bill ini-
tiated and passed largely through
the efforts of WCO, establishes a

Michigan Housing


Authority which is empowered to
finance low cost housing for low
and moderate income families.
The Authority would have the
power to float bonds to grant low
income mortgages to non-profit
corporation, such as WCO, to
sponsor housing developments.
The bill allows provides for state,
subsidies to low income families so
that they will not have to pay
more than 5 per cent of their in-
comes for housing.
These and other activities in the
coming weeks could prove to be
the test of WCO's impact on the
Detroit scene. It has always proved
to be quite difficult to keep any
sort of political action movement
going once the shouting and ex-
citement has died down.
The difficult job of solidifying
an organization is not as stimu-
lating as an eye-to-eye confron-
tation with the establishment. But
it is work that WCO must do if
it is'to maintain itself as a lasting
force in Detroit politics.

Attempt To Aid Teaching Of
Sociology at High School Level

Note Rise
In Student
Grade Points
B Average May
Place Seniors in
Lower Half of Class
Seniors who have a 3.00 average
or less may be surprised to find
themselves in the lower half of
their class.
According to literary college sta-
tistics evaluated by the college's
Administrative Board last month,
the senior grade point average
(non-cumulative) has risen from
2.88 to 3.01 in the last five acade-
mic years. Similarly, junior grade
point averages have risen from
2.70 to 2.90, sophomore averages
from 2.62 to 2.80, and freshman
averages from 2.53 to 2.65 during
the same period.
What, if anything, does this
On the surface, it appears that
the quality of students is getting
better, which may be the case. For
the average college board scores
of incoming freshmen creep con-
tinually upward.
Fewer Leave
In addition, fewer students are
asked to leave or put on probation.
Only .6 per cent of last year's
freshmen were told not to return
and were not reinstated upon ap-
peal. However, the literary college
had no complete figures on volun-
tary withdrawal of students from
the college.
Thus, a student who feels aca-
demically pressured might leave
of his own accord before his aver-
age becomes low enough to war-
rant official academic discipline.
Also, attrition is due to financial,
psychological, and family situ-
ations which might have otherwise
affected scholastic achievement.
John Manning, assistant to the
associate dean, commented, "Al-
though no accurate figures are
available, I suspect about 40 per
cent of any freshman class doesn't
finish here."
As these academic pressures in-
crease, it becomes more likely that
graduating students will earn
higher and higher averages. But
Manning also noted that the stan-
dards of the faculty and the Ad-
ministrative Board-which asks
students not to return and estab-
fishes academic probation-have
remained fairly constant.
Entering students find the at-
mosphere increasingly competitive.
"Kids are more grade conscious,"
observed Manning. "Perhaps it is
harder to stay in and compete in
graduate and professional schools.
Thus, students might not neces-
sarily be smarter, but merely per-
forming more conscientiously."
James Shaw, chairman of the
junior-senior counselling office,
noted that "about 86 per cent of
our students now intend to con-
tinue their education after grad-
uation. We are beginning to realize
that the University is a prep

The project, "Sociological Re-
sources for Secondary Schools," is
part of the'American Sociological'
Association's effort to developin
structional materials that will re-
flect the character of sociology-as
a scientific discipline.
The program, supported by a
National S c i e n c e Foundation,
grant, moved to Ann Arbor Sept.
1 when Prof. Robert C. Angell of
the sociology department became
its executive director.
The project's basic goals are
threefold: to write a series of short
"episodes" dealing with a variety
of sociological problems; to de-
velop a model high school sociol-
ogy course; and to produce a
series of paperback books 'covering
different aspects of sociology.
The purpose of the episodes is
to try to present an inductive ap-
proach to sociology, Angell ex-
plained. "We hope that by having
students collect and analyze data
they will learn how sociologists
deal with it in developing cate-
gories and analysis."
The episodes, short units of in-
struction suitable for use in a va-
riety of social studies courses, have
been commissioned to a number
of prominent sociologists working
with high school teachers. After
the episodes have been written
they are tested at the local level,

"Operation Paperback," under
the direction of Mrs. Helen'Mc-
Gill Hughs, former editor of the
American Journal of Sociology,
will, said Angell, provide "high
school analytical material trans-
formed so that high school stu-
dents can understand it."
The leaders of eachfield cover-
ed by the paperbacks will nomi-
nate the 12 to 15 best articles
written in the field. These will be
rewritten for high school students
prior to publication.
The paperbacks will be used

chiefly as outside readings for
high school courses in sociology,
history, problems of democracy,
and related subjects. "I've seen
some of the early results of 'Op-
eration Paperback,'" said Angell,
"and they are very exciting."
The program was headed for
years by Robert Peldmesser of
Dartmouth College. The staff, now
headed by Angell, includes Prof.
Everett Wilson, on leave from An-
tioch College to work on the pro-
ject, as well as other professors to
help coordinate, analyze, and edit
the materials in preparation for
