-M' Halfback Picture Excellent


Dennis Fitzgerald, who has re-
turned a kickoff 99 yards against
Michigan State and is the holler
guy of the team; Bennie McRae, a
speedster who is a breakaway
threat every time he handles the
ball; Dave Raimey, a sophomore

MAN in mttkn

sensation who leads the team in
scoring with 24 points; Jim Ward,
who has the best per carry aver-
age on the club; and Jack Stroble,
who is never sensational but al-
ways reliable.
Real Chance
With McRae sitting out the
Duke game with an ankle injury
Raimey received his first real
chance and was nothing less than
sensational as he gained 114 yards
on 13 carries.
For this performance Raimey
was named back of the week by
the United Press.
Now the question remains as-to
whether or not McRae will be able
to get back into the starting unit
against Northwestern, now that

Raimey seems to have come into
his own.
Elliott,. obviously pleased with
the development of his sophomore
halfbacks, refused to commit him-
self this early in the week. "I
just don't know yet which unit
Raimey will run with Saturday,"
he said. Then as an afterthought,
he commented, "He could run
either way."
Elliott did indicate that he
thinks McRae and injured full-
back Ken Tureaud will be ready
for - action against Northwestern.
"At least I hope so," he added.
In the meantime the halfback
situation remains about as pre-
dictable as the next ruler of'the
Belgian Congo.

NFL Standings


LAST SATURDAY'S childish display by the "Block M" cheering
section has set many people on campus to thinking about the role
that this group and its sponsoring organization, the Wolverine Club,
should be playing in our athletic setup.
When, with a show of misguided enthusiasm after Michigan's
third touchdown those in the "M" section started hurling shoulder
capes and color cards, they laid themselves open for criticism from
many corners-including this one.
Despite the fact that the Wolverine Club does not condone such
actions and disavows any part in the demonstration, Saturday brought
to a head many of the criticisms that have been aimed at both the
group and its sponsor.
First and foremost, well over 1,000 juniors and seniors are being
deprived of choice seats by this group. The "M" section is located
where juniors and seniors should be sitting, but a class-by-class
breakdown of those groups indicates that all too few juniors and
seniors are in fact sitting there. Ticket Manager Don Weir reports
that of the 1,344 students in "Block M," only 39 are seniors, 100 are
juniors and 1,205 are underclassmen.
It seems to this corner that SGC, when it next gives the Wol-
verine Club permission to operate the card section, could well call
into question the placement of the section.
Most observers are inclined to think that a better place for
"Block M" would be in the end zone, where most of the fans in the
stadium could see it. As it is now situated, none of the rooters on
the Michigan side of the field can observe its workings. In addition,
any Michigan television coverage must do without the card section
since TV cameras are mounted on the press box-on the same side
of the field as "Block M."
(Although from reports that have filtered back across the field,
this may not be altogether unfortunate-"Block M" has not exactly
gained renown as being outstanding among such groups.)
Many protest that if such a switch in location was to be ef-
fected, no one would sign up for the card section. This doesn't ap-
pear to hold water, since as a matter of fact the card section is pri-
marily made up of underclassmen whose seats would be little (f any)
better if they got them In the annual shuffle at the IM Building.
Freshmen are typically more favorably disposed toward such acti-
vities as a card-cheering section than their older and more sophisti-
cated fellow students, and would probably be just as quick to sign up
for such activity as they now are. And if they were not the mourners
would be few and the pall-bearers non-existent.
If students have to be bribed with good seats to be part of a
cheering section, then there is no good rationale for that section to
exist. If it remained in the face of such "adverse" conditions, those;
in it, the hard-core members, would likely be a more responsible'
S TO THE Wolverine Club, sponsors of "Block M," the purpose of
this group could well be laid open to question. Insofar as anyone
on campus knows, organizing the card section is the main function
of the club (and many don't know of this one).
An interesting sidelight to this is that every person signing up
for "Block M" pays $1.50 to the sponsoring group, meaning that this
group has in the area of $2,000 to work with during the season.
With this at least adequate sum of money, it would seem that
the club would be able to serve some purpose on campus. But it
Among its expenditures are the expenses of weekly "Pep rallies"
which are ill-attended by students and players alike (if the entire
football squad had been at the last one, it would have made up a full
ten per cent of the "crowd"). Most students don't even know when
and where they are held (do you?).
Let's be realistic, this is not a "rah-rah school. With a growing
percentage (now 40 per cent) of the University's students doing
graduate work, attendance at such affairs is bound to drop-barring
a Rose Bowl contender. At this type of institution-at this institution
itself-football makes a great spectator sport, but pep rallies are an
Lesser expenses for the club include enigmatic signs announcing
"Pep Rally This Friday" that are permanently posted around campus
for all to wonder as to what Friday is being referred to.
And the final apparent expense of the group is for the shoulder
capes and cards that were tossed to the winds last Saturday.
There is at least one area where such a group could serve a pur-
pose, but it doesn't. This is in the area of student bus trips to away
football games. When other teams play here, crowds of visiting stu-
dents descend on the campus, but except for such big rivalries as
Michigan State and Ohio State, few Wolverine rooters do much trav-
eling. For Instance, Ticket Manager Weir reports that the upcoming
Wisconsin game has drawn a rousing 40 ticket reservations through
the Wolverine Club. This is an active group?
In the past, club monies have been known to be misused. Their
budget being subject to SGC review today virtually precludes this
happening, but at least on the basis of all apparent evidence, the only
effective function of the group is the aggrandizement of its leaders.
The place of "Block M" and the Wolverine Club could easily
be called into question today. And answers to such questions might
suggest that this place be somewhat altered. At any rate, the ques-
tions should be asked.

Hinsdale Runs Past Adams
In Top I-M Football Contest

Bob Schlete powered unbeaten
Hinsdale to a 28-2 victory over
Adams House to highlight the
opening of the third week of I-M
football action.
Schlete, a lanky quarterback,
threw three touchdown passes and
made several kty runs as he led
his team to their third straight
victory. The other Hinsdale TD
came when safety man John Beck-
with intercepted an Adams pass
early in the game and ran it all
the way back for six points.
Leading at the half, 20-2, Hins-
dale slowed up somewhat after
intermission and couldn't score
again until five minutes before the
final gun. Once again it was
Schlete as he climaxed a 50-yard
drive with a TD pass to Phil

II if
Once again, it is a week of traditional games highlighting the
football agenda. One of the most famous, and certainly the most
popular of these rivalries is the Philander Smith-Tougaloo game.
Grid Pick no. 20 of this week is a game looked forward to with a
great deal of excitement in the Ann Arbor area, and all indications
point to another thrilling encounter between these two fine powers.
Select the winner of this game, and include the score. The
person who comes closest to the actual score will win two free
tickets to the Michigan Theater. These are in addition to the other
tickets, and are being awarded only because of the extreme importance
of the game.

the Daily office and can be returned by hand or mailed to Grid
Picks, Michigan Daily, 420 Maynard St., Ann Arbor. Entries must
be in by midnight Friday to be eligible, and don't forget to include
