Open 1960
Big 10 Card
By DAVE ANDREWS
Weeks of anticipation and
speculation come to a climax this
afternoon, as the Big Ten Con-
ference with all its color, pagean-
try, and competition, kicks off
with eight intersectional games
and one prestige battle on the
card.
Headlining the contests will be
the long awaited rematch between
top ranked Northwestern and
perennial power Oklahoma. The
Wildcats rule as odds on favorites
behind the quarterbacking wizard-
ry of All-American candidate,
Dick Thorton, and a host of re-
turning veterans.
But the Sooners, mindful of the
fearsome whipping administered
to them by the "Cats", 45-14, at
Evanston last fall may have a few
surprises of their own.
T.V. Game
At East Lansing, Michigan State's
sophomore studded Spartans face
once beaten Pittsbugh in a game
for nationwide TV fans at Pitts-
burgh (Channel 7, 11:45 a.m.).
The Panthers, their growl
lowered to a whisper last week by
UCLA, would like nothing better
than to upset the Spartans. End
Mike Dicka and Pitt's three "C"
boys, Bob Clemens, Fred Cox, and
Jim Cunningham could spell
plenty of trouble for Michigan
State fans.
In Champaign, what would have
been the only Conference game of
the day if Indiana had not drawn
a one-year suspension, the Hoos-
iers meet Illinois.
Prestige at Stake
The Illini, title favorites as the
season opens have nothing except
a preseason fourth place national
ranking at stake, but badly want
a prestige win for new Coach
Pete Elliott in the opener.
Ohio State appears to have the
easiest assignment of the day,
hosting Southern Methodist. The
Buckeyes will spring a new look
at the Mustangs, as Coach Woodie
Hayes insists he will get away
from his grinding type football in
favor of a more wide open game.
Anyway, SMU will have to gain
more than 39 yards on the ground
as it did against Missouri last
week to give the Bucks any serious
problems.
In the other three openers, Iowa
faces Oregon State a surprise 14-0
winner over Southern California
last week; Purdue tackles UCLA
8-7 winner over Pittsburgh last
week, in Rose-Ade Stadium at
Lafayette, and Wisconsin's gra-
duation riddled Badgers travel to
Stanford to meet the Indians.
After this week's opening games,
much of the speculation will be
over for the Big Ten teams, as
they, now tested by strong op-
ponents, dive headlong into the
Conference schedule next Satur-
day.

(Continued from Page 1)
the first sophomore to open the
season at quarterback for Michi-
gan since Evashevski in 1938.
Though he has yet to call a
play or throw a pass in collegiate
competition, the confidence of the
Michigan coaching staff and the
hopes of Wolverine fans rest with
this young man. Glinka has been
outstanding in both practice ses-
sions and scrimmages. However,
his first real test will come this
afternoon.
Besides Glinka, the starting
backfield will be made up of Ben-
nie McRae, a first-rate speedster;
Ken Tureaud, who split his time
between halfback and his cur-
rent fullback post last year; and
either senior Dennis Fitzgerald or
sophomore Dave Raimey at right
halfback.
Ekperienced, Light Line
The Wolverines will have an
'experienced if somewhat light
line. All starters and five of their
substitutes are lettermen, but
none is of outstanding propor-
tions or of great proven ability,
Bob Johnson will be at right end
and Scott Maentz, subbing for
the recovering John Halstead, will
anchor the left side. Last year's
starters Tom Jobson and Jon
Schopf are at the tackles with
Dick Syring and Paul Poulos at
the guards. Captain Gerry Smith
will center on offense and quar-
terback the defense from his line-
backing post.
The major difference between
this and last year's Michigan style
of play will be in substitution
methods and an expanded offen-
sive repertoire. Last year's famil-
iar sight of three platoons shuf-
fling on and off the field will be
replaced by a continual stream
of single substitutes and a de-
pendence on two rather than
three units.
Raiders Role New
The role of the Raiders, last
year's defensive specialists and
favorite of the Michigan fans, has
been readjusted. This spirited
group will again concentrate on
defense, but will also be employ-
ed to move the ball on offense
when they gain possession.
A third unit may or may not
be used, but if they are it will only
be as a filler and not part of
Elliott's general plans.
The reason for this shift lies
primarily with the introduction of
the 'wild card' substitution which
allows one player to enter the
game on each play regardless of
whether or not he has used all of
his official entries.
New Rule
This new rule, a compromise
between limited and free substi-
tution will allow coaches to em-
ploy specialists on both offense
and defense as well as to send in
plays from the sidelines.
With this as the case, coaches
can now bolster their offense or
defense without wholesale substi-
tution. The necessity of a third
team is thus eliminated, as the
second team, bolstered by 'wild
card' substitution becomes a two-
way instead of a specialist unit.
Today's Lineup

Thus the Raiders become an
offensive as well as defensive
team, with individual substitution
used to aid them on the attack or
as defenders.
In this department Michigan
fans can expect the replacement
of McRae and Glinka, one at a
time, when the first unit loses
the ball. Glinka will be replaced
by Raider quarterback John
Stamos and senior Reid Bushong
will sub for McRae.
Seven of 11
The new Raiders will have sev-
en of the original eleven ntiem-
bers in its lineup today. Hold-
overs from last year's Raiders are
Stamos, fullback Rudd Van Dyne,
right guard Lee Hall, tackles Bill
Stine and Guy Curtis, center Todd
Grant and right end George
Mans.
Newcomers to the Raiders are
three sophomores: Bill Freehan,
left end; Jack Strobel, left half,
and Joe O'Donnell, right guard.
Either Raimey or senior Gary
McNitt will be at right half.
Elliott has a third unit listed.
However, they will probably see
action as individuals rather as a
unit. Defensive men likely to see
action are former Raiders Paul
Raeder, right half, and Keith
Cowan, left end; sophomore right
end Bob Brown, tackle Will Hilde-
brand and Bushong.
Bob Chandler, another soph is
probably Elliott's number two of-
fensive quarterback, though listed
behind Stamos. Halfback Jim
Ward and Fullback Bill Tunnicliff
are also more than likely to see
offensive service as Elliott con-
tinues last year's tradition of
liberal substitution.

RICH GET RICHER?
Top Ranked Teams
Face Weak Foes

.6

By BRIAN MAC CLOWRY
College football moves into its
first full weekend today and all
signs. point towards the rich
getting richer.
Much of the attention will be
focused on last year's national
champion Syracuse as the Orange-
men try to work up a sweat
against outmanned Boston Uni-
versity.
Coach Ben Schwartzwalder has
three men back from last year's
starting backfield including hard
running halfback Ernie Davis,
who has been likened to Jim
Brown.
The nations top ranked team,
Mississippi, will meet Kentucky
at Louisville, and the Rebels are
expected to win eased up.
Last week 'Ole Miss' scored 36
points in the last half to trounce
Houston, 44-0, while the Wildcats
were bowing to Georgia Tech 22-
13.
Out on the west coast, the
Washington Huskies could become
the first team in the nation to
score 100 points (in two games)
when they meet Idaho.
Husky coach Jim Owens cleared
his bench last Saturday in. a 55-6
walloping of College of Pacific.
Seven different players scored
touchdowns with All-American
Bob Schloredt getting two.
Last year Washington shut out
the Vandals 23-0 and with all

eleven starters back from this
year's Rose Bowl team, they
shouldn't have much trouble
doubling that score today.
Also on the coast, perenial
powerhouse Southern California
gets a chance to redeem itself
against Texas Christian.
Last week the heavily favored
Trojans were rudely upset by
Oregon State 14-0, in a game that
may start an innovation in col-
lege football.
Using the new liberalized sub-
stitution rules, Oregon State
Coach Tommy Prothro used alter-
nating wingbacks to call every
offensive play while sitting in the
press box. His assistant coaches
ran the team from the field.
Joe Kuharich will be on the
spot as he opens his second sea-
son as head coach at Notre Dame.

Following close on the heels of Democratic nominee Kennedy,
Vice-President Nixon and his wife came to Michigan this past week.
The Nixons' campaign trail was, as expected, crowded with local
Republican candidates, thousands of outstretched hands and necks,
and at one point, children from the state school for deaf in Fifnt
(photograph above shows an interpreter translating Nixon's remarks
to the children).
The tempo of the campaign continues to gather steam-or more
appropriately for 1960, airplane prop-wash-as the presidential aspir-
ants set a pace designed to let them be seen by as many voters as time
and energy will permit.

Yankees Win,
Pirates Lose
By The Associated Press
The New York Yankees and
Pittsburgh Pirates still seem cer-
tain to meet, in the World Series
but the two teams experienced
different results yesterday.
New York beat Boston, 5-1, re-
ducing the magic number to four
on the way to their 1th pennant
in 12 years under Casey Stengel.
Pittsburgh, however, lost to Mil-
waukee, 2-1, as a result of a bad
hop run-scoring single by Del
Crandall, which reduced its mar-
gin to six games over int. Louis,
winner of a pair of 5-1 tilts from
Chicago yesterday.

CLASSICS-The tools of the politician have changed little over the
years and remain, as these pictures suggest, a firm grip, direct look,
an outstretched arm saluting the well-wishers, and a scathing attack on
the other side of the political fence.
