OSU Uses Air


Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom
Very few people really care, or really dare, to look at any
University buildings closely, but next time you go over to Window
A to find out why they don't serve "City Chicken" in the dorms any
more, take a gander above the back door of the Administration (that's
the salmon loaf) Building.
There, perched above the nifty aluminum doors, looking over the
shoulder of the little grey man that writes down license plate numbers
of all the cars that have ever parked in the Admin parking lot,
are two concrete plaques. Who are on those plaques??? Funny you
should ask.
Well, it's not Good Governor George or Lee from the Chatter
Box. It isn't Bump or Timbo. It's not Harlan and though they are
square, it isn't Cutler. By process of elimination you've got the
answer, right? Of course; it's HIAWATHA AND AESOP! Who
else could it be?
Why of course there is a relation between the two of them, and
still another correlation between their bodies and the University.
After all, no one would dare to put two meaningless unrelated tableaus
on our own, very own, Admin Building, would they? No one would
try to put on the entire University at one time, would they? No one
would use something they had left over from the last building they
built, would they? Certainly not (that's an indignant "not"). Each
of these concrete beauties has a very special meaning to Michigan
and to the University. The metaphysical relationship between Aesop
and Hiawatha is simply beyond the scope of this column. This is
indeed unfortunate (cries of dismay from the crowd), but what we
can do is take a closer look at the pretty, Hiawatha.
I had never known that Hiawatha was so Christ-like before
this. With the lambs at his feet, he looks mystically toward the
horizon, his left hand (THAT is significant) resting on his pet
boy's head.
Perhaps we should go to Longfellow's own poem to see a relation
between this image and our University. With a little research I found
the following from Section 22 (Hiawatha's Departure):
"By the shores of Gitche-
By the shining Big-Sea-Water
(now you can quote it right)
At the doorway of his wigwam
(very good, above the doorway,
In the pleasant Summer mor-
ning, (a little shaky in Ann Ar-
Hiawatha stood and waited.
r,. how a propos for Window A)j
All the air was full of fresh-
All the earth was bright and
And before him, through the
Westward toward the neigh-
boring forest (he does face West
you know) .. ."
Yet this doesn't tell us all we want to know. A few, but very
few, lines really give us any insight into why, oh my goodness why,
Hiawatha. What we should perhaps find out is: what Hiawatha
majored in when he went to Michigan; how much did he bequeath
to Michigan; how much did the architect who graduated from Mich-
igan like Longfellow; whether the forest animals around Hiawatha's
feet are a dig at University students; and finally why an Indian is
wearing a long flowing robe.
Certainly brethren, YOU must each answers these questions.
Each of you must individually find your meaning, and meaning
for your life, In the lovely concrete of our own Hiawatha. All
we can do here is plant the little concrete seeds in your minds
that might someday grow to be a big, beaauuutifullll statue of
At this time I would like to point out that I have several
things in mind if the demand is high enough: the Daily will print
full-size wall posters of Hiawatha; we will organize a Hiawatha
honorary; we will sell picture postcards, trading cards, and jigsaw
puzzles all over campus; in addition, we will organize guided tours,
and perhaps charter buses so that everyone can see Hiawatha.
We do this with all due sincerity so that students, faculty, and
friends might all be given their chance to find the meaning for their
lives in this majestic sculpture, as I have. And surely no one person
could be more appropriate for this great University than perhaps
Soa now, sippa youra coffee anda sing a Christmas songa).

When the Skywriters came
around to Big Ten football camps
before the season started, Woody
Hayes politely told the newspaper-
men that this was not to be the
year of the pass at Ohio State.
The Buckeyes passed 40 per cent
of the time last year, points out
Hayes, and still couldn't fashion a
title. They only finished second to
MSU. Not quite the way to run a
football team, added Hayes. An-
other grind 'em out year in Co-
lumbus, decided the writers.
And the results?
End Billy Anders of Ohio State
is the tenth leading pass receiver

in the country with 46 receptions
and 548 yards.
Quarterback Bill Long has a
.600 completion percentage for
over a thousand yards in the air.
And OSU's 3-3 record ties them
for fifth in the Big Ten.
Same as Last Year?
While Hayes paces the sidelines
in his shortsleeves this Saturday
they won't exactly fill the air with
football, but, says Wolverine
Assistant Coach Dennis Fitzgerald,
"They passed against us a lot last
year, and they might try it again
this year."
The Bucks have two excellent
receivers for Long to connect with.

Besides Anders with his impres-
sive statistics, there is halfback
Bo Rein, who has started every
game for the last three years.
Rein, the lone returnee from last
year's backfield, has been pri-
marily a pass receiver for the past
two years. The gritty (5-11, 180)
senior, besides serving in that
capacity this season, also gets the
ball via the handoff route, and is
averaging over four yards a jaunt.
The Groundhog
But that hardly means that
Hayes has given up the old, re-
vered "three yards and a cloud of
you-know-what" jazz. This year's
off-tackle plays finid Paul Hudson
with the ball. Hudson, a senior
("They keep 'em somewhere for
three years," says Fitzgerald), is
the, Buckeyes' leading ground
gainer (naturally) and the num-
ber one ball carrier (naturally),
On the tight play with short yard-
age, Hudson gets the honor of
carrying the pigskin.
Yet the Bucks are passing more
than ever this year. Through their
first seven games they had gained
more yards with the forward pass
than with the run.
One reason for the rejuvenated
Track Feud
NEW YORK-The government-
appointed S p o r t s Arbitration
Board (SAB) met yesterday with
the warring parties in the five-
year-old track feud which has
divided the world of amateur
athletics-and prolonged the un-
easy stalemate between the two
factions another day.
The United States Track and
Field Federation, which represe-
sents a near-unanimous percent-
age of the nation's major colleges,
has threatened to walk out on the
arbitration attempts of the SAB
unless the USTFF's dtmands for
free competition and freedom of
choice for the athlete" are granted
at the two-day meeting.
Blockinga settlement of the is-
sues has been the Amateur Ath-
letic Union-an East Coast organ-
ization which governs graduate
track meets and which holds a
franchise in the international gov-
erning body of track.
A statement from the two track
bodies, concerning what agreement
---if any at all-is reached at the
meeting, is expected this after-
noon. All of the individuals in-
volved in the meeting declined to
talk to the press yesterday pending
possible developments today.

A gain
OSU passing game may be the
lack of a breakaway running
threat. "They have some fast men,
but they play the more powerful
runners," says Fitzgerald. "Rein is
the fastest of the starters, but
he's no 9.5-in-the-hundred man,"
adds the Wolverine assistant.
The Beef Trust
The line is so beefy it would
turn any field into a bowl. Be-
ginning with 228 at the center, the
weights increase to 248 at each
tackle. Ray Pryor, all Big Ten
center last year and All America
candidate this year, anchors the
offensive unit.
"They are the type of team that
tries to physically overpower you,"
Fitzgerald notes. "They're danger-
ous but . . ." The Buckeyes have
scored over 20 points only twice in
eight games, and four times have
failed to top 10 points.
Ohio State this year is relying
on the defense to keep the other
team's point production down,
while its offense scores just
enough to win. The defense holds
the Big Ten lead in fewest points
allowed along with Michigan
State. The Bucks, as a result, have
been in a number of close games.
They dropped a 10-9 squeaker to
Illinois and an 11-8 decision to
MSU, but they only whipped hap-
less Iowa 14-10 and mediocre In-
diana 7-0.
The Neophytes
And the Buckeyes this year are
a mite green. As Fitzgerald tells
it, "They're playing a larger than
usual number of sophomores. Hay-
es says that last year he had his
finest freshman team ever. They
are all good players and can't be
regarded lightly."
But the brand new breed can't
be expected to fill the holes left
by the graduation of such defen-
sive standouts Doug Van Horn,'
Bill Ridder, Tom Bugel, and Ike
Kelley. There are two new line-
backers, a new middle guard, and1
a new tackle. As a result, Big Ten
teams have been able to run
against the Bucks. Minnesota, on
the wrong, wrong end of a 49-0
score here in Ann Arbor, tried only
three passes against OSU, and ran
away to a 17-7 victory.

We have nothing against salt.
On radishes. Or french fries.
But not in beer.


Buckeyes' Woody Hayes in Costume

Devotees of this daily feature will notice that this week's grid
selections have a theme. The naive will ask, "What?" but the true
sports fan realizes that heading up the bottom of the list are two
games involving the boring business of mining.
Yes, dear reader. West Virginia, the Jewel of the Hills with a
heart of coal, is taking on the mighty Orange of Syracuse. At the
same time, the Colorado School of Mines is taking up battle with
its arch-rival, Southern Colorado.
Will these two schools, sisters that they are, prevail against their
foes? Miners of the world, unite! (You adults can get in the act, too,)
Bring your entries to 420 Maynard St. by midnight Friday. Two
Cottage Inn dinners await this week's winner.

L. Putting salt in your beer,
some say, perks up the head
.. or livens up the taste... or makes
the beer "drier." With Budweiser,
though, all salt can do is make it salty.
Budweiser is complete.. .a ready-to-
drink beer if there ever was one.
Wonderful clarity. Real beer aroma. A
taste and a smoothness we know of in
no other beer.
So save the salt for the popcorn. We
put heart, soul and our exclusive
Beechwood Ageing into Budweiser. All
you need to enjoy it is a glass... and
a taste for the real thing.
