The Big One
A position by position analysis of Michigan and Michigan State as
they prepare for the biggest game of the season today:
END -- Both MSU's Art Brandstatter and Wolverine captain
George Mans are all-America candidates and solid performers. Lonnie
Sanders, the Spartan's other offensive end may be, the best receiver
on either team, but he is not nearly as rugged as Michigan's Scott
Maentz. Defensively, watch the Spartan's Ernie Clark, a 210 lb. bull.
Although I am not forgetting Michigan State's outstanding soph-
omores Matt Snorton and Larry Hudas, Jeff Smith, Bob Mongeau, Bob
Brown, Jim Korowin, and Doug Bickle give Michigan an edge in
depth. Bickle is a field goal threat' on kickoffs, but Brandstatter can
also boot them for MSU. EVEN.
TACKLE-It is difficult to imagine anyone getting the best of
Wolverine starters Jon Schopf and John Houtman, but they are going
to have their hands full with massive 250-1b. Dave Behrman, and
Dave Herman. The Spartan's second pair of tackles, Pete Kakela and
Tom Winecki have the edge in experience over Michigan sophs Tom
Keating and Jim Wiley, although both have been impressive so far.
Michigan letterman Guy Curtis should prove very valuable on de-
GUARD-Michigan's guards are going to have to 'stop State's
-tremendous junior Ed Biddle, who has been all over the field in' his
first two games. To make matters worse, the first two right guards'
Joe O'Donnell' and Lou Pavloff are definitely out of the contest with
injuries, putting the burden on sophs Dave Kurtz and Del Nolan.
Lee Hall and fast-developing John Minko should handle the
other guard slot capably for Michigan. George Azar is the next best
for State and he's no slouch. EDGE TO MSU.
CENTER-Dive Manders of Michigan State is much better than
average but so is Michigan's Todd Grant who is also a good ten pounds
heavier. To compliment Grant, Michigan has John Walger, a defensive
HALFBACK-Michigan State has at least as many good halfbacks
as Michigan but no one to approach Benny McRae or Dave Raimey.
Gary Ballmari and Carl Charon provide solid power, but neither can
match the Michigafi duo's speed. Speedy Sophs Sherm Lewis and
Dewey Lincoln are not as fast or strong as Raimey or McRae.
Michigan has outstanding depth in Jack Etrobel, Ed Hood, and
Biuce McLenna.
For the Spartans, Rocky Ryan on defense and soph Herm John-
son also will bear watchi g. Ryan is underrated. Incidentally, the
4 Spartan secondary has been death on passing. Wisconsin and Stan-
ford, two pass-happy teams have netted a total of three points between
them. EVEN
FULLBACK-Michigan State will depend on tough Ron Hatcher
for the short yardage as they did last year. Hatcher is neither as big
as Bill Tunnicliff nor as fast as Ken Tureaud, Michigan's first two.
Tureaud also sparkles on defense. The speedy but smallish George
Saimes goes both ways and has been a valuable asset to Michigan
State so far. .
Michigan's Jim Ward, also a solid two way player and 15 lbs.
heavier than Saimes, could play first string for half the teams in the
QUARTERBACK-If anything happens to State starter Pete
Smith, who can't approach smooth Dave Glinka anyway, the Spar-
tans will be in hot water. I doubt if Duffy Daugherty wishes to unveil
untested soph Doug Proebstle in a crucial game before' 100,000 scream-
ing people.
To backstop Glinka is experienced senior defensive specialist
John Stamos. Soph Tom Pritchard has also seen action. But the real
ace up Bump Elliott's sleeve is passing wizard Bob Chandler who un-
limbered last week with a picture play 36-yd. TD pass to Bob Brown.
Don't be surprised if Smith takes to the air more than he has so
far. He Is an adequate passer and has the receivers. BIG EDGE TO
OVERALL ANALYSIS-Michigan lost in 1960 when its light line
wilted in the late stages under the onslaught of two massive MSU
lines. State returns virtually the same team minus a quarterback of
Tom Wilson's stature. Michigan returns almost all of its key backfield
personnel behind a much sturdier line and that should be the differ-

DANGEROUS MSU BACKS-Keep your eyes on the boys piptured above who are some of the MSU platoon of backs who hope to create
havoc with the Michigan line today. From left to right: Halfback Carl Charon, who gained 124 yards against Michigan in last years
contest; halfback Sherman Lewis, 'a great breakaway threat; fullback George Saimes who had a sensational debut against Wisconsin
this year; quarterback Pete Smith, the Spartan signal caller who may lead a rebuilt passing attack.

closed doors all week cooking up
specialties and neither Michigan
Coach Bump Elliott nor Spartan
mentor Duffy Daugherty is con-
ceding a thing. Both have had
their problems.
Elliott has been especially con-
cerned about his slippery speed-
ster Dave Raimey and his much
ballyhooed hip bruise. At last re-
port, however, Raimey was ready
to go.
Daugherty's Problem
Daugherty's problem lies with
quarterback Pete Smith who was
forced to miss >several key prac-
tices because of the death of his
father. The senior Smith died sof
a heart attack during MSU's 31-3
conquest of Stanford last Satur-
How much Smith's practice ab-
sences will hurt the Spartans
won't unfold until this afternoon,
but Daugherty has let it be known,
as has Elliott, that he expects to
have to go to the air more today
than he has in the first two games.
Smith is his number one chuck-
er, though virtually untested un-
der game pressure.
The steady senior has taken over
the signal calling job this fall
after spending last season on the
bench. He has thrown only 11
times with little success. Michi-
gan's Dave Glinka, in his second
year as the Wolverine field gen-
eral, proved himself last fall. This
year he hasn't had to throw.
This afternoon's contest, how-
ever, may change all that as each
team appears to have the defense
to stop the other's highly- regard-
ed ground attack. The Spartans'
have yielded only 96 yds. rushing,
while Michigan has grudgingly
given 12'. Both rank in the na-
tion's top ten,

in days of yore, men feared nof only their
mortal enemies, but the elements too. It was
the medieval armorer's task to protect his
chief against foemen, but weather-protection
was a more difficult matter. Thus many a
knight was spent in rusty armor.
Engineers and scientists at Ford Motor
Company, engaged in both pure and applied
research, are coping even today with the
problem of body protection (car bodies, that
is). Through greater understanding of the
chemistry of surfaces, they have developed
new paint primers and undercoatings,. new
rustproofing methods, and special sealers
that guard entire car bodies against nature's
corrosive forces-all of which add armor-like
protection to Ford-built cars.
'From other scientific inquiries will undoubt-
edly come new materials with ,protective'
properties vastly superior to those of today.
This is another example of Ford's leadership
through scientific research and engineering.
