"I knew we had scored when I
saw the goal line directly under
me," said Michigan fullback Bill
Tunnicliff about the disputed
touchdown he scored Saturday
against Illinois.
The bruising 225-pound junior
had gone over from the one yard
line, giving halfback Dennis Fitz-
gerald an opportunity to haul in
a two point Dave Glinka toss for
an 8-7 victory.
Tunnicliff drove into the Ilini
line on the 'disputed play,' and was
stopped momentarily, then bounc-
ed off two tacklers and dove into
the end zone. "The Illinois players
claimed they had me stopped,"
said Tunnicuff, but the referee
ruled differently.
Almost Scored
Actually, Tunnicliff had almost
taken the ball over three plays
earlier when he smashed to the
one yard line only to be tripped up
there. This type of running was
typical of his play all day, as he
was a consistent ground gainer,
getting the "big yards" when
Michigan needed them.
He was ready when Glinka
called his number on a fourth and
one situation on the Michigan
29 yard line. He made some other
key carries in this drive which
carried to the Illini five as time
ran out.
Michigan coaches agree that the
Ferndale product has been im-
proving steadily with every game,
seeming to reach his peak Satur-
day. After starting the season be-
hind classmate Ken Tureaud,
Tunnicliff alternated with him
much of the Illinois game, espe-
cially in the late stages as Coach
Bump Elliott relayed plays to the"
'Just Want To Play'
When asked if he would rather
play without substitution instead
of alternating, Tunnicluff remark-
ed in the true spirit of a man who
loves football, "I don't care, just
so long as I play."

Prof. Hayes (economics dept.) will speak on his
proposal for an International Youth Service.

Hoosiers 'Hurt'
diana football team will leave
four battered players behind when
they fly to Michigan today for
tomorrow's game.
Crippled with injuries suffered
in last week's crushing loss to Ohio
State were starting center Fred
Lauter, tackle Charles Campbell,
fullback Tom Burgess and end
Tom Trainer.
Coach Phil Dickens said Lauter
will be replaced by Jim Miller,
and Campbell's successor will be
Moses Gray.
The Hoosiers are scheduled to
arrive in Detroit at 2:23 p.m.
(CDT) today and work out brief-
ly in Michigan's stadium before
spending the night in Ypsilanti.

. As far as playing goes he has
been doing so for many years. At
Ferndale St. James High School
(Class C, 350 enrollment), Tun-
nicliff played five positions,
finally ending at fullback.
He started out as a guard in
the sophomore year, switched to
end as a junior, and then played
three backfield positions his last
year, including halfback and wing,
besides fullback.
'Like a Halfback'
"I only weighed 195 pounds as
a senior, and I used to run around
end from my fullback slot like a
halfback," he said. "I also caught
quite a few passes from the wing-
back position." He has been Glin-
ka's target on some short roll
outs, utilizing his high school ex-
Tunnicliff is also a good blocker,
clearing the way for halfbacks on
end sweeps, as he puts his 225
pounds to another good use. Does
this added weight, as opposed to
high school, slow him up? "Not
enough to make any difference,"
he said, "I always believed that
a coach looks for size in a f.ull-
back first, then speed."
Size Adds to Power
It is his size which he says
has made him more powerful, that
helps him get those extra 'precious'
yards, like the 'yards' which helped
the Wolverines win Saturday.
"Ken (Tureaud) also gets those
yards," Tunnicliff said, "'but he
does, it more with finesse than
"Ken .is definitely faster, more
of a halfback type (which he used
to be) at 190 pounds, and he gets'
that quick start which will help
him spring loose on a quick

Tureaud is also a defensive ace,
playing a corner linebacker, a
position that Tunnicliff gets stuck
with occasionally in the course of
a game. "I'd like to play more
defense, but I realize that I'm not
a real good defender," he said.
Goes Through Line
t He may not be a good defender,
but Tunnicliff has shown he knows
how to go through. that line.
What's his technique? "I run with
my head up and look for a whole,"
he explained, "Sometimes when
the hole isn't there I have to go
wide, or dive over the line."
A bruise on his nose shows the
effect of rough line play, but he
says he doesn't even notice it.
Other Interests
'Aside from playing football
.Tunnicliff is majoring in history
and plans to teach and coach in
high scholl. He admits that foot-
ball was the big attraction that
lured him to Michigan, but fall
is a short season, and he has
found other 'interests,' including
a wife. Tunicliff has been married
for 15 months, and if anything,
he says his football is improved.
This is an encouraging note to
Wolverine fans who hope that
the big fullback's improvement
will continue for at least another

Practice Notes
Coach Bump Elliott sent his
charges in early yesterday after
a snappy workout. The short ses-
sion was attributed to 'quick ac-
complishment of our aims' by one
of the coaches, rather than to a
disregard for oft-beaten Indiana,
which is reported looking for a
'big' upset.
