THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Fast Spartan Pair
f ace. Tricky Attack
BY FRED STEINHARDT
If Michigan is to open the Big
10 season with a victory over
Michigan State at East Langing,
Saturday, it must harness what
may be the best pair of halfbacks
in the conference, Herb Adderley
and Gary Ballman.
Both are fast, as fast as Michi-
gan's swiftest backs, Bennie Mc-
Rae and Dave Rainey. Both are
versatile and can catch and throw
as well as run; both are good
sized, in the neighborhood of 200
pounds; and both will have the
added advantage of a big, mobile
line to give them that extra split
second every back needs to break
into the secondary,
Adderley, a senior, is regarded
as the best halfback in the Mid-
west and was mentioned, on many
pre-season All-American teams.
He is the latest in a long line of
backs to spark Michigan State,
following in the tradition of Leroy
Bolden, Billy Wells, Clarence
Peaks, Walt Kowalczyk, and Dean
Look, to name a few.
Last season, Adderley led the
Spartan backs in yards gained
with 419, an average of 4.5 yards
per carry. He also gathered in 13
passes for 265 yards.
As a Philadelphia high school
boy, Adderley collected a bevy of
honors and scholarship offers.
Although Adderley must be con-
sidered the better of the two at
this point, it is Ballman who
makes pro scouts' mouths water.
He has yet to enjoy a big day for
Michigan State, and it would be
best for Michigan if he doesn't
until sometime after this Satur-
Michigan. This season, he has been
slowed by a recurring leg injury
which might keep him from see-
ing full service Saturday.
Adderley Started Late
Adderley also has had trouble
getting started as he reported to
pre-season camp late due to an
illness in his family. He only car-
riedi the ball eight times against
Pitt and should just be rounding
into top shape.
Should Adderley or Ballman
tire, they are backed up by very
capable hands. ,Junior Bob Suci
returned an intercepted pass for
93 yards and a touchdown last
year against Michigan. Don
Stewart, who also can double as
quarterback, caught a 25 yard
touchdown pass from Dean Look
at Ann Arbor last year.
Another junior, Larry Hudas,
has been filling in for Ballman
and might be the most improved
player on the squad. Hudas, who
made all-city at Detroit Denby,
is 6'4" and was a sprinter in high
These are the players Michigan
must stop Saturday, or it will be
a long bus ride back to Ann Arbor.

A hit on either one would have
broken a 7-7 deadlock.
BIG GAINER-Jim Ward (45) one of Michigan's three right halfbacks who performed so impressively
last Saturday, picks up good yardage against Oregon in one of his fine runs. He rushed for 47 yards
in five carries, aided by good blocks such as the one thrown by the unidentified Wolverine. The shifty
Ward simply outran blocker Frank Clappison (67).

Gaing almost half of Michigan's'
290 yards rushing against Oregon
were three hard running right
halfbacks, Dennis Fitzgerald, Dave
Raimey, and Jim Ward.
The three men picked up 132
yards between them in only 21
carries as they impressed upon
Wolverine fans how deep the
Michigan backfield really is. Each
one appeared to be as good as
graduated Fred Julian was against
Ohio State last year in his final
and greatest game.
Fitzgerald, a senior, started the
game off with a 10 yard advance
on the way to 45 yards in 11 car-
ries. He exhibited the usual fight,
and inspirational drive that has
earned him his niche in Michigan
athletics, both as a wrestler (Big
Ten Champ last year) and on the
He seemed to gain even when
there was nowhere to go last Sa-
turday which prompted Backfield
Coach Hank Fonode to call him,
"the fighter." Fonde added that
Fitzgerald Is obviously the most
experienced of the three offensive
right halfs, having played two
years for Michigan, and averaging
3.4 yards per play last season,
Due to this added experience,
Fonde said that Fitzgerald hits the
holes a little bit better than Raim-
ey or Ward. "He understands the
blocking assignments very well,"
said Fonde, " and has a slight all-
round edge, including defense, on
the other two. However, it's very
close between all three."
At the mention of defense,
Fonde named still another right
halfback, Gary McNitt, who
started the game on defense
against Oregon. and also saw a
little offensive service, as the other
three played some defense, too.
Speed was brought up, and
Raimey was the one who prompted
it. He showed Oregon his heels

first time he touched the ball in

his swiftness is a little surprising,
but he has excellent balance which
he displayed Saturday. Fonde also
said that he is a good blocker,
something the average fan might
overlook in a game.
It is this blocking ability which
is a principaldreason why Raimey
is rated ahead of his counterpart,
Ward, by the coaching staff, Fonde
indicated. Ward is almost as fast,
and at 6' 1", 195 pounds, is a
tough man to bring down. He
made this very apparent against

Ward's performance was all the
more amazing when one considers
he switched from- quarterback last
spring, a position at which he
earned Michigan all-state honors.
He, as well as Raimey and Fitz-
gerald, will be put to the real
test against Michigan State's mas-
sive line Saturday.
But, as Fonde summed up in
a simple understatement, "Our
right halfbacks are doing a good
job." and from their performance
against Oregon, he might well
have added, . . . and will con-
tinue to do so.
