Pick Squads
Of Veterans
York Mets and Houston Colts
shelled out: a total of $3,650,000
for 45 faded "name" players and
unproven youngsters today to
stock their new clubs for play
in the expanded 10-club National
League next season.
George Weiss, former New York
Yankees general manager who now
is president of the Mets, came up
Dick Asel needs help. He's the
senior football manager and
doesn't have enough subordin-
ate managers. Anyone interest-
ed go down to the practice
field and ask for him. Only
requirement is that you be able
to pass the Spartan sympathy
with such names as first baseman
Gil Hodges of Los Angeles, and
Eddie Bouchee of Chicago, out-
fielder Gus Bell of Cincinnati and
pitcher Roger Craig of Los Angeles
in the $75,000 category.
In the special "premium player"
selection at $125,000 each, Weiss
took pitchers Bob Miller of St.
Louis and Jay Hook of Cincinnati
and infielders Don Zimmer of Chi-
cago and Lee Walls of Philadel-
Paul Richards, Houston's gen-
eral manager, pickled up such well-
known men as second baseman
Eddie Bressotid and pitcher Sam
Jones of San Francisco, first base-
man Norm Larker of Los Angeles
and pitcher Bobby Shantz of Pitts-
burgh from the original lists for
$75,000 each.
In the premium grab-bag, Hous-
ton acquired second baseman Joe
Amalfitano of San Francisco, re-
lief pitcher Dick Farrell of Los
Angeles, catcher Hal Smith of
Pittsburgh and outfielder Al
Spangler of Milwaukee. Each car-
ried a $125,000 price tag.
Weiss, who kept in touch with
absent manager Casey Stengel in
New York by telephone, said, "We
git Ya good fair percentage, I'd
say two-thirds, of our top choices.

In One Ear

Affair To Remember
YEAH I KNOW, it's the biggest game of -the century. It's a titanic
that'll make people forget the Titanic. It's the biggest thing that's
hit Ann Arbor since liquor by the glass. And it's about as predictablel
as Ray Charles showing up for a concert. The Michigan-Michigan1
State game that is.
Both coaches are confident. Bump Elliott thinks he'll win l
44-0. The Wolverines have the biggest line this side of Detroit,
and the way the Lions have been going, probably the best too. '
Nobody knows where Bump got all these behemoths. He wasn't 1
supposed to have anything up front when the season started. r
Between you and me. I don't know where these linemen came
from either. But the first time I see one climbing Burton Tower with
airplanes trying to shoot him down I'm transferring to Humboldt State.
And I don't meani these guys are just big, they're tough too. I saw one
go into Auditorium A the other day-without opening the door.
I won't say who it was because the Daily has a football game
Friday and I'd like to be in shape to play.
Duffy more conservative.,.
DUFFY Daugherty is a little more conservative. He likes the Spartans
34-0, give or take a field goal. Duffy says he has some sophomore
backs that are so fast they'll make Bennie MacRae and Dave Raimey
look like they're wheelin' on worn out treads.
Duffy's line isn't exactly small either. It should come in around
220 pounds. And talk about being mean. A couple of Spartan tackles
took in the circus when it came to East Lansing but they didn't get,
to see much of it. It seems some guy kept sticking a chair in their
face and yelling, "Back, Back!"
Part of the Michigan State success this year has to be
traced to the trainer's idea of having the Spartans wear
weights on their arms and legs all summer. This practice was
supposed to increase a player's strength and speed. Duffy
was so pleased with the results he's continuing the program
during school. Around campus the MSU footballers not only
have to carry their girls' books, they have to carry her as well.
If the Wolverines win Saturday it'll be the first time they've
beaten Michigan State since Roosevelt was president - Teddy.
Actually Michigan won 14-7 in 1955, but has only been able to get one
tie since then. Elliott is still loooking for his first victory over Daugh-
erty. Duffy won 34-8 in 1959 and 24-17 last year.
Bands primed too,...
EVEN the bands are primed. I'll- never forget two years ago when I
walked in on a Michigan State band meeting just before the boys
were slated to take the field for the pre-game show. The bandleader-
or whatever you call that guy who runs in front like he's trying to fall
over backwards-was talking: r
"Okay, quiet' you guys. I don't have to tell you this is the big one.
This Michigan outfit is going to be tough. They use the triple time
strut and their first 89 pieces are as tough as any in the country.
You're going to especially have to watch Evans on the Tuba and Klein
on the trombone. They're both two year lettermen and have all the
"But last week against Oregon State I noticed they have,
two drummers who can't move to their right. Sure, they're
good, but we can be better if all you guys give your best. They
put on their pants the same way you do-two legs at a time..
Okay you guys let's go out there and win this one for Herman
Swartz (first trombonist, out for the year with chapped lips) !"
Actually, the Michigan music men were never in trouble. Dr.
Revelli's gang has been undefeated for 20 years. He's the only coach
in Michigan history who's never been hung in effigy. But then, this is
the only school in the conference that hands out more scholarships for
marching band than for football. The Wolverine bandsmen were so
good last year the Russians invited them to tour Siberia.
Anyway, this is the kind of Saturday it's going to be this week.
I wouldn't miss it if I were you.

Veterans Charon, Bailman, Hatcher Lead MSU;
SophomoreBacks' Performance Shows Potential

For the third successive Satur-
day, Michigan will face an op-
ponent which hasn't been seriously1
tested as yet.
This time of course, the op-
ponent is the much more fear-
some Spartans from Michigant
State. A UCLA or an Army is onef
thing, but an unknown Spartan1
team can be dynamite.

In Playoffs
Six teams clinched first place
playoff berths in yesterday after-
noon's "A" social fraternity foot-
ball action picking up their third
straight victories.
Tau Delta Phi rolled over Pi
Lambda Phi, 28-0, as Al Green-
stein scored four touchdowns to
push his I-M scoring leadership to
68 points. Sigma Phi Epsilon drop-
ped Sigma Chi from the unbeaten
ranks, 26-0.
Other playoff spots were copped
by Sigma Alpha Mu in a 14-6 win
over Chi Psi. Sigma Alpha Epsilon,
defending champions, had an easy,
time in beading Phi Kappa Tau,
40-0, marking themselves as the
team to beat again this year.
Delta Upsilon, helped by Larry
Morawa's fourteen points beat
Zeta Beta Tau, 24-12. Phi Kappa
Psi downed Alpha; Epsilon Pi, 12-
In other action Phi Gamma
Delta edged Phi Sigma Delta, 14-6,
on Don Barron's two touchdowns.
Acacia squeaked, by Delta Sigma
Phi, 8-6, and Theta Xi shut out
Trigon, 14-0. The only game. for-
feited went to Lambda Chi Alpha
over Phi Kappa Sigma.
In night action in the Indepen-
dent League the Evans Scholars
and the Gomberg Older Element
closed out perfect seasons with
3-0 records. The Evans men won
7-0 in overtime over Visigoths on
a long pass from Al LeSage to
John Grossa. Gomberg squeaked

caught the Wolverine defense un-
awares by running his offense
from the belly option series. Bump
Elliott had prepared his team for
anything but that.
This year, according to Wolver-
ine scout Jack Fouts, the Spar-
tans have stayed completely on
the ground, running mostly off
tackle plays and guard and tackle
traps. So far, and get this, the
Spartans have thrown only 11
passes in their first two games.
They have completed three of
those and' had three intercepted.
In two easy victories the Spar-1
tans have gained 690 yards on
the ground. The majority of the
yardage has been collected by
six running backs.,

The starting backfield is Pete
Smith (quarterback), Carl Charon
and Gary Ballman (halfbacks),
and Ron Hatcher (fullback). Cha-
ron is the fellow who ruined Mich-
igan last year with 124 yards in
14 attempts.
Oddly enough however, it hasn't
been the starting backs which
have grabbed the headlines. Last
week it was a couple of sopho-
more speedsters, Dewey Lincoln
and Sherman Lewis, who finished
Stanford off.
Last week Lewis ran for 72
yards in 13 attempts and Lincoln
chipped in 93 yards in 10 attempts.
So far Smith has not run at
all, so he is an unknown quantity.

Last year Spartan quarterbackj
Pat Wilson was the same way'
until the Michigan game when he
suddenly became the star in the
belly series.
Smith's passing ability is also
unknown. His favorite target so
far has been end Lonnie Sanders,
who has caught all three of the
completions. The three intercep-
tions are what Fouts termed as
plays where the defensive player
just outfought the receiver..
Probably the most stunning
thing about the Spartans this year
is to be found in the 'line. They
have two of them this year-one
for offense and one for defense.
And both are mammoth.

The strongest side of the offen-
sive line is where guard Ed Budde
(240), tackle Dave Behrman (250)
and end Art Brandstatter (215)
hold forth. Dave Manders (220)
is a very capable center and
George Azar and Dave Herman
round out the unit.
The notable fact to be made
here is that the Spartans have
their typical depth which told the
story in last year's conquest. As
Fout's puts it, "they have 11 of-
fensive players, 11 defensive play-
ers and two good halfback re-
serves, so you're really playing
against 24 first stringers. Saimes
is the only guy who goes both
ways," he added.


Well, here it is Wednesday already and time for all the Grid
Pickers to start thinking about this week's big games-Michigan
Daily versus Michigan Union.
Rumor has it that the Daily is loaded this year and the only way
it can lose is for tailback Brian MacClowry to throw the game. (And
he might.) He'd do almost anything to get another game right in the
Grid Picks.
But for everybody except the Daily Sports Staff members, the
contest doesn't close until Friday midnight. Since the game is sched-
uled for Friday afternoon, anybody who doesn't: trust MacClowry
(and who does?) might want to be sure of getting the game right by
submitting his picks after watching the game.

gan Theater, showing "Romanoff and Juliet" this- week, bring in
your choices with the score of the Michigan-Michigan State game to
Grid Picks, Michigan Daily, 420 Maynard, Ann Arbor.
