Pr omise in Finale

It was a great day for a pic-
nic and Michigan offense had one
-the Blue tallied 61 points in
the Wolverines' final spring foot-
ball scrimmage.
It was exactly 61 more points
than the Wolverines could man-
age in last year's scoreless finale.
The scoreboard showed the Whites
squeaking by the Blues 32-29.
Dick Vidmer, a highly-regard-
ed freshman quarterback from
Jeanette, Pa., figuredz in four
touchdowns as he paced the White
team to victory. He scored the
game winner with two minutes
remaining on an 11-yard keeper
play, set up by a 43-yard pass to
end Steve Smith.
Frosh Sparkle
Freshmen figured prominently
in the game, particularly in the
backfield. Besides Vidmer, Rich
Volk and Wally Gabler distin-
guished themselves at quarterback.
Volk, playing for the Blues, car-
ried twice for 27 yards and com-
pleted two of four passes for
another 84. Sixty-four of the yards
came on a flat pass to halfback
Mike Bass, another freshman, who
gathered it in at midfield and
raced for the score.
Gabler, another Blue, threw for
100 yards, completing four of six
;asses. His most spectacular toss
came in the fourth period when
he lofted a long bomb which Cap-
tain Jim Conley grabbed for a 47-
yard gain.
Freshman Dave Fisher, playing
for the Whites, gave veterans Mel
Anthony and Barry Dehlin fair
warning that he means business
at fullback, totalling 86 yards on
16 carries for a 5.4 average.
Slow Start
The game, played before about
3000 springtime fans, started slow-
ly. Both teams moved theball
with neither squad able to mount
a scoring threat. Finally in the sec-
ond quarter the Whites pushed
to within striking distance on the
strength of a series of rollouts and
pitchbacks by Vidmer. With 10:44
Left in the second period the frosh
quarterback rolled to his left, and
ust as he was about to be flat-
tened flipped to the trailing half-
jack, Jack Clancy, who scooted 10
yards for the TD.
The Whites used the same kind
of strategy to rack up another
score five minutes later. Vidmer
bulled over from the two.
Come Back
The Blues came alive in the see-
ond half through the air. Craig
Kirby snared nine passes from as-
sorted quarterbacks for 132 yards.

made the score 12-7.
Then an eight-yard Vidmer-to-
Ben Farabee aerial boosted the
White margin to 18-7.
Then Bob Timberlake followed
by clicking for three straight com-
pletions for the, Blue to Kirby,
ending up at the four. Timberlake
went over the goal, line himself.
Mel Anthony scored a two-point
,onversion and the score was 18-
15, White, with 13:25 remaining in
the game.
The Whites stormed back with
another score as Pete Hollis quar-
terbacked a 70-yard touchdown
drive. Two passes to freshman
end Clayton Wilhite kept the drive
going and a third for eight yards
was good for the score. Barry
Dehlin popped over for two points,
mnaking the score 26-15 for the
The, Blues came back immedi-
ately as Gabler ran back the
kickoff 25 yards to the 42. Then
Mel Anthony darted through the
line and outran the secondary for
a 58-yard touchdown run.
The Blues got possession of the
ball after four downs. Gabler
threw to Kirby twice for 3 yards,
then Bass zipped over from the
four making it 29-26 Blue with
five minutes left.
The Blue lead was short-lived;
however, as Vidmer kept on the
)ption for an 11-yard touchdown
run for the decisive White six
Dancer Cops
Derby Win
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (P)-Northern
Dancer, ridden by Bill Hartack,
held off the closing rush of favor-
ite Hill Rise yesterday and won
the 90th running of the Kentucky
Derby in track and Derby record
time of two minutes flat.
It was the fourth Kentucky
Derby victory for Hartack and the
first ever for a Canadian-bred
colt. Northern Dancer, a winner
by a neck, is owned by E. P. Tay-
lor of Toronto.
With the controversal Hartack
beating a steady tatoo on the
flanks of the Canadian-owned
Northern Dancer, the small son of
Nearctic, took the lead a quarter
of a mile from home.
Hill Rise, ridden by Willie Shoe-
maker, challenged at that point
but he was unable to catch the
flying Dancer who went under the
wire a neck in front.J

Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan's
varsity golf team played unspec-
tacular golf here yesterday aft-
ernoon as they dropped three of
their four matches with Big Ten
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer saw
"just flashes of hope" as the
Wolverines managed to grab its
first conference victory of the year
by downing last year's Big Ten
runnerup Wisconsin, 930-950, in a
six-man match.
In the other matches, the Wol-
verines pitted nine men against
the host Spartans and lost, 1407-
1390; they dropped the seven-
man match with Indiana, 1088-
1067; and were defeated in their

ether six-man meet with North-
western, 930-926.
According to K a t z e nmeyer,
"Most of the team played accept-
able golf, yet we're still not shoot-
ing as well as we should be."
Captain Gary Mouw was team
medalist with a 77-75-152, and
was followed by sophomore Bill
Newton, 74-80 - 154. Newton's
morning round was the lowest for
Jhe squad in the tournament with
Mouw and Eric Dollenberg run-
nersup with 75's in the afternoon.
Yesterday's performance was
much like the Wolverines' two
weeks ago when they finished
last in a field of four at Co-
lumbus. Katzenmeyer pommented,
'We just missed a whale of a lot
of golf shots again. I think there's
a lot of potential on that team,
but I just haven't seen it. I'm
not ready to 'blame the poor
weather, yet, for anything, but it
sure hasn't helped us."
Other scores for Michigan were
Tom Clark, 77-78--155; Frosty
Evashevski, 77-78-155; Dollen-
erg, 81-75-156; Pete Passink, 80-
77-157; Chuck West, 81-76-157;
Mark Yahn, 78-80-158; and Jim
Evashevski, 80-83--163.
Paul Williams of Indiana was
the 36-hole medalist over the pat
71 Forest Akers course with a 73-
73-146. Wisconsin's Bill Iverson
aad the best 18-hole round, a 70
in the afternoon.
Michigan's first home match of
the season will be next Saturday
May 9, with Ohio State and Pur-
