In the four Purdue victories this
n year, the best thing Griese did was
sit on the bench during most of
fl, the second halves. In fact, the
only contest this year where
nore Griese was THE factor was the
out Southern Methodist game, which
Purdue won 28-14.
If .this isn't enough to frustrate
- somebody with Griese's creden-
tials, the most publicity he re-
ceived was when Terry Hanratty
showed him up in the first game.
j If there's anybody who thinks
°-Big Ten quarterbacks receive ade-
quate recognition, try naming
half the starters in the league (no
r fair picking three from Minne-
sota). Besides Griese, Dick Vidmer
and Jimmy Raye, and either Larry
Carlson or, Curt Wilson of Min-
nesota, most people would be
stuck. The others are Bob Napo-
nic, Illinois; Frank Stavroff, In-
J diana; Bob Long, Ohio State;
Dennis Boothe, Northwestern; Ed
Podolak, Iowa; and John Boya-
jian, Wisconsin.

A n Untitled Treatise
Without anty Order
I just finished the rough draft of my philosophy paper. It was
due Monday. I hooked my bluebook in the one course where I'm
caught up. I had a history test postponed. It was supposed to be
tomorrow Now it's three weeks from Tuesday-
The leaves look oxidized instead of majestic in a rusty scarlet
hue. I made my exit yesterday morning in a light jacket and froze.
I'm still sweating 'cause I wore my parka in the afternoon. I ate 12
fig newtons for lunch.
I am a cold scrambled egg.
I am also getting tired of sports. Why does Saturday after-
noon mean mandatory attendance at an open oval where I feel
obligated to cheer for the team with the ugliest football helmets
in the country-that yellow octopus looks like Mordecai Brown's
first finger painting. Those afternoons could be spent studying,
canoing, feeding guppies, hoarding pre '65 silver quarters, cutting
my toe nails, or learning to tie a Windsor knot. I have the slop-
piest looking tie knots in the world.
I'm in a mood to hyberloate, violate, dilate, scintillate, and
sleep. I feel like banishing home-made chicken soup from every atom-
ized kitchen in the world.
Is there no one else who can't blow a bubble. Fleer and Ba-
zooka should go the way of the soup. The comics and noodles can
stay if they mind their own business. So what if I have grey hairs.
I can't see people when I'm driving a car at night-
I have a lock with a combination 34-0-34. It sounds like a
Jayne Mansfield doll looks. I keep it shackled around the handle of
my dresser drawer. That's where I hide my white socks, used columns,
and chopsticks. I don't need spoons once I do away with chicken soup.
If airplanes are turquoise, why can't footballs be light green
striated with narrow grey pin stripes and snap tab laces? Sliced
tangerines are less sticky than strawberry lollipops. Wax paper is
nice for moldly tangerines. Food is better without chicken soup
on it.
That brings me to the subject of this column - the UCLA
basketball team. Man, they are really gonna' be good!
And where does that leave the Idaho drought in relation to an
Oregon famine? Oregon is a bad square and Idaho is a carbine with
an oversized butt. Why aren't leaves ever blue? That would be a nice
color for Philadelphia. Boston is obviously purple, and San Francisco
is chartreuse and burnt orange.
I like colors if, the world is kept in order. Eliminate ram-
bling. Cease irrelevancies. Stick to the subject. Don't wonder. No
trespassing. Brevity is next clarity. Clarity is three places ahead of
Godliness- Use topic sentences. Avoid improper paragraphing. Eat
three balanced meals a day. Wear galoshes when it rains. Page

THE
7. TUDENT
DIRECTO RY

The Daily has done it again!
The sports staff has done the
impossible twice in one football
season. Our staff of precocious
grid pick selectors have, forthe
second time this fall, picked a
pigskin encounter that features
two teams that will not meet un-
til the week after they appear in
grid selection. First, it was Yale
against Connecticut, in a battle
of Gnats, now it is mighty Utah
versus Arizona State.
What's a night editor to do?
One solution is to forget about the
Utah-Arizona State game this
week and run 21 games next week
which was done earlier in the year.
Another answer is to substitute
the Utah-Arizona State game with
a more thrilling match, say that
of Niles East High School, Skokie,
Ill. (where Chuck Vetzner served
his time) against New, Trier East
High School, Winnetka, Ill. While
the game won't count as a grid
pick, you might as well put it in
your grid selections, to give us 20
games to grade.
By the way, Niles East hasn't
beaten New Trier in over ten
years.
