Fitzgerald Typif ies New'egime
By FRED STEINHARDT
The score-Michigan State 14,
With less than five minutes re-
maining in the first half, the
favored Spartans had taken the
lead for the first time from a
determined and surprising Michi-
gan team on a four-yard thrust
by Gary Bailman..
Bobbitt kicking off for State,
McRae and Fitzgerald back for
Michigan. Toe meets ball and
76,000 pair of eyes are riveted
upon McRae and Fitzgerald. The
strategy is to keep everything
away from McRae, a speed mer-
chant and fine broken field run-
ner. The kick sails high and deep,

Fitzgerald gathers it in on his
own one yard line and slants
toward the middle to pick up his
blockers. A feint with the shoul-
der, another with the head, and
two green jerseys fly by him-
Suddenly he cuts to the right
sideline and there is no one there.
The 35, the 30, 25, 20. The last
Michigan State defender with a
chance to catch him is closing in
across the field. But he is felled
by a perfectly timed block by Mc-
Rae who has kept pace from the
one-yard line. Touchdown, Michi-
Michigan leaves the field at
halftime, leading 17-14.
Dennis Fitzgerald, starting right
halfback for Michigan, typifies the
new regime at Ann Arbor, now in
its second year under Bump El-
Fitzgerald is not big, as half-
backs go. He stands 5'9" and plays
at 180 pounds. He is not fast. But
he is tough, tough enough to have
won the Big Ten 167-pound wres-
tling title last spring.
Fitzgerald remarked that the
run represented "a good effort by
everybody." Although he is fre-
quently called the holler guy of
the team in press releases, Fitz-
gerald claims that Michigan's
great spirit is not the contribu-
tion of any one individual
"We have a lot of- players that
came up the hard way,_ and we
all take pride in playing with a
tough, hard-nosed team. you can
never let up because there is al-
ways a guy waiting to take your

with the feeling that it is as good
as any in the nation," he contin-

"I don't think there will be an
undefeated team because there are
just too many strong schools.
Every team in the conference can
punish you physically even if it
never wins a game. They play
bruising, tough football and you
have to be sharp every game, not
only to win but to keep a team in
good physical shape."
Fitzgerald is one of the few Ann
Arbor boys who went on to star at
the hometown University. He
graduated from Ann Arbor St.
Thomas in 1954 where he was
captain in his senior year.

After three years in the Marines,
he enrolled at the University.
He is enrolled in Physical Edu-
cation and would like to obtain
a Certificate in Physical Therapy.
After graduation he intends to
maintain his amateur status with
a long eye ahead to trying for

retain its team title.
This Saturday when Michigan
attempts to trip up a Duke team
that has won its first three games,
keep an eye on number 18 with
the old style Michigan helmet
reminiscent of Michigan glory of
the past. He's not big and he's
not fast. But he's tough.

Upsets and romps highlighted last week's Grid Picks contest,
but in the final tabulation, it was necessary to resort to the closeness
of the scores of the Michigan game to decide the winner.
Martin Piehl, of 337 E. William picked 15 correct games as

You must admit that our old shop was quaint, cute
and cozy. We had lots of fun there and made many
new friends, but there just wasn't enough room to
accommodate more than a handful of customers at
a time. Another thing: there wasn't sufficient space
to display suits, sportcoats and topcoats. We had to
be content selling sensibly priced sportswear and
furnishings. Now, mind you, we weren't unhappy..
But all that is changed now. We have a new and big
shop at 1209 S. University (near Church Street) where
there's plenty of room for our complete selection of
fine men's clothing, sportswear, furnishings and in-
teresting accessories. A few things about J. B. Towne
haven't changed: every item in the shop is still sen-
sibly priced; and you're always welcome to come in
and browse around.
Even if you don't need anything at the moment, why
