Kolverines Ride High on Desire

HOUSTON (A') - Cassius Clay
floored plodding 33-year-old Cleve-
land Williams four times and stop-
ped him on a technical knockout
in 1:08 of the third round last
night in his seventh defense of
the. world heavyweight boxing
Williams, who still has a police-
man's bullet in his body and
lucky to be alive, was no match
for the undefeated 24-year-old
Referee Harry Kessler of St.
Louis ended the slaughter by step-
ping between the two men with
Williams wobbling on shaky knees
with eyes glazed and no longer
able to protect himself.
Clay, who prefers to be known
as Muhammad Ali, floored the
once-feared slugger three times in
the second round and once in the
third before the end.
Apparently stung by those who
said he could not punch, Clay
swarmed over the challenger in
the secound round and threw
every punch in the book after feel-
ing him out in the first.
But Not the Last
A right hand dropped Williams
for the first time in the second
round. He was down for about two
and then took the mandatory
Abarrage of blows sent the
stunned Williams to the deck
again, but he popped up quickly.
Once again, Referee Kessler tolled
the mandatory eight count.
Actually, Williams was saved by
the bell at the end of the second.
A right hand by Cassius sent him
floundering on his back, apparent-
ly finished for the night. When
the count had reached five the bell
Cassius came out for the kill in
the third, throwing caution to the
wind as he swarmed to the attack.
Down went the Houston veteran
again, shaken and in bad shape.
Had To End
After the mandatory eight
count, Clay resumed his punish-
ment barrage until Referee Kes-
As he left the ring, Clay pointed
to Ernie Terrell, the World Box-
ing Association champ, at ringside
and said, "You're next."
"I am ready," said Terrell, who
is supposed to be all set for a bout
with Clay Feb. 6 at an undeter-
A record indoor crowd of 35,460
turned out at the magnificent
Astrodome, but they didn't get
much for their money. Williams, a
S5-1 underdog, never had a chance.
It was as simple as that.
Michigan's 28-20 gridiron tri-
umph over Northwestern last Sat-
urday was not just a combina-
tion of Dick Vidmer's passes to
Jack Clancy and the gains made
by Carl Ward, Jim Detwiler and
Dave Fisher crashing into the line.
And it was more than a determ-
ined line and a stubborn second-
ary. Probably the biggest factor in
the win was emotion.
This was the last home game
for two dozen guys who have
busted their guts for four years
to wear a blue uniform on 10
Saturdays of the year, The desire
for this win built up during the
first part of the game as these
men realized that it was the last
chance to do something for the
Blue in Ann Arbor.
The players could taste the de-
sire. After losses against Purdue
and Illinois, in which they did
all but outscore the foe, they were
hungry for a win.
The fans could even hear the
desire. The usual "click" of two
lines meeting headon was magni-
fied to an assortment of "crunch-
es," "thuds," and "oofs." It's too
bad that there is no way to meas-
ure yardage gained on second ef-
forts, or even third and fourth
efforts. Quite a few of Michigan's aond half, but it wasn't the way it

Still, in the first half, North-
western ran off 42 plays to the
Wolverines' 33, and 10 of Michi-
gan's came in the last two min-
utes in a desperation drive toward#
the goal line.
After halftime Michigan came
out with high hopes, but a few
sloppy plays were costly. North-
western caught Stan Kemp be-
fore he could get a punt away,
and took possession of the ball
on the Michigan 15. The defense
held the Wildcats to a three-
Out of the Game
Now the team came to life. Vid-
mer conducted a 78-yard march
in 17 plays, with all four backs
carrying the ball and both ends
receiving passes. Every play went
for a gain, with Vid finishing it
with a two-yard sneak for the
score. Rick Sygar put the Wol-
verines in front for the first time
with the extra point, his 29th con-
secutive conversion this season.
He made it 30 for 30 after Michi-
gan's final score.
The offense worked well Sat-
urday, but it had throughout most
of -the season. Yet in games like
Purdue and Illinois it didn't mat-
ter how well the offense worked.
Mistakes seemed to take care of
the outcome. But Saturday there
was one added factor which in-
fluenced the outcome. The pent-
up desire of a bunch of seniors
who had just one ychance left.
Michigan's soccer club will try
to conclude their season on the
upbeat this Saturday when they

it comes to the fine details of properly finishing a

fashion-wise, skilled pressers to carefully touch up
each garment by hand. Linings, lapels, bows, and
pleats all get individual attention.
It's another extra Greene's customers expect-and

week's Grid Picks contest for the second time this year. Salomon
claims he has only missed one game all year but keeps forgetting to
put his name on his entry. Motions have been made to make Salo-
mon an honorary member of The Daily sports staff, establish him
as a weekly guest selector, and to run him out of town, in efforts
to give someone else a chance.
The latter course was finally chosen since Salomon is illiterate.
with the equalizer, but the Wild-
cats continued to control the ball.
One drive yielded a field goal and
a fumble recovery paved the way
to another touchdown drive, giv-
ing Northwestern a 17-7 lead.
Now or Never
It was about at this point that
the Wolverines realized that if
they were going to do something
it had to be soon. Michigan's
drive after the kickoff was cli-
maxed with a 49-yard scoring pass
from Vidmer to Detwiler. The play
put new life into the Blue and
