I' Gridders Depend on Unknown Senior

PDP Nips Nu Sigma Nu, 2-0

Ever hear of Bill Dougall?
You probably haven't, unless
you're on the football team or in
the same fraternity. Nobody else
His picture isn't sent out with
the other football publicity shots.
His name never reaches the pa-
pers. His picture isn't in the Mich-
igan Gridiron Guide. Nobody sec-
ond guesses his play calling. No-
body worries much if he's in-
jured. He's never traveled with
the team.
The reason is that Dougall is
what is commonly known as a
red-shirt. He's a'fifth string quar-
terback and a senior at that.
What's more he's been a fifth
string quarterback or worse for
three years now.
He's only gotten into' two games
in his entire Michigan football ca-
reer. You probably missed those
performances, while heading for
the exit. They occurred in the Ar-
my and UCLA routs: .
Last Chancej
Tomorrow will probably be his
last chance to play for Michigan,
and then only if it turns out like
last year's Duke game. It's not
likely that Bump Elliott will be
able to empty the bench against
either Iowa or Ohio State.
All this and yet Dougall is a
very valuable asset to the team.
For three years, you see, he's been
the man who runs the opposition's
offense against the varsity to pre-
pare them for the Saturday con-
Captain George Mans expressed
how important it was to have the
reserves present a good simile of
the other offense. "Bill and the
other guys do a good job of get-
ting us ready for Saturday," he
Naturally the reserves have to
do more than just go through the
motions of the offense. They've got
to have spirit, and this is where
Dougall, or Dougs as his team-
mates call him, fits in.
Good Leadership
,,we think it's important to

have good leadership on the re-
serves, and Dougall and (Jim)7
Zubkus (another senior red-shirt)a
provide that," said backfield
coach Hank Fonde.
Dougall's thinking seems to1
support this. "We try like hell to
beat the varsity whenever we can,"
he said. And indeed casual ob-
servers at the practice field have
asked if "that fellow" was the
first string quarterback. It was
only Bill Dougall completing pass
after pass against the varsity de-
The red-shirts have so much
spirit that they have even formed
their own club-the Red-shirt
Club. "We have our own cards and
hold our own banquet at the end
of the year. Paul Schmidt (a giant
senior tackle) and I are unoffi-
cial co-captains."
Split Personality
Actually "Dougs" has been
something of a multiple person-
ality in his role as a reserve. For
three years now he has been such
stars as Tom Matte, Ron Miller,
Dick Thornton, Sandy Stephens,
Ron DiGravio, Dean Look, Dick
Eckert, and, this week, Walt Rap-
"I- watch the game films close
and try to look as much like them
as possible," he said. To make it
even more convincing, he wears
the same number of the quarter-
back in practice.
Of all the offenses he has run,
Dougall said he liked last year's
Ohio State offense the best. "The
quarterback gets to run a lot, and
I like to run.",
He does a pretty good job of
passing too, with Zubkus, known
as "Zub," being his favorite re-
Offense Expert
Dougall has been at his spe-
cialty so long hat he has become
something more than an expert on
the various offenses. He admits
to knowing more about the other
offenses than Michigan's own
wing-T, which he runs so little.
He also admits to drawing plays
on scrap paper in his spare time.
"I've seen that guy just sit

down and start drawing plays for
fun," Dick Asel, senior football
manager, said.
The big question is why should
a quarterback who could probably
be playing first or second string
at a smaller school, come to Mich-
igan-and worse yet, stay out for
the team for three years knowing
he wasn't going anywhere.
Big Time
The former Redford High quar-
terback from Detroit answered
that it was "mostly because of my
father," who was an 'M' man. "I
figured if I wanted to play, I
might as well try for the big time.
If I had it to do over again, I'd
probably do the same thing."
Tis hope of being a high school
coach answers why he stayed out
all these years. "I figure that I
learn something every day, and, if
I'm going to cocah, the more I
know the better."
An education major, he hopes to
start his coaching career at Uni-
versity of Michigan High School
as an assistant coach.
Wing-T Best
Out of all the offenses he has
run and knows best, he picks the
wing-T as the best. "It's easy to
teach and has good deception and
power," he said. If that doesn't
work he can probably switch to
any one of the many other of-
fenses he knows.
So if you happen to see a tall,
thin, boyish looking student sit-
ting next to you in class and he is
drawing plays instead of taking
lecture notes, say hello. It's Bill
And if Michigan manages to get
three touchdowns ahead of Duke
tomorrow, watch for old number
22. It will probably be his third
and last appearance on a Michigan
MSU Play
Ole Miss?
versity of Mississippi should play
Michigan State to decide which is
the top football team in the na-
tion, but cannot because of "ar-
chaic thinking" says an Ole Miss
student leader.
"We can't play any team which
has Negro players," said the edi-
tor of the Mississippi student
newspaper, "which practically re-
duces us to our own conference. I
feel that this is ridiculous, as do
the majority of the students."
The letter was written by Jim-
mie Robertson, editor of the Mis-
sissippean, student newspaper at
the southern college. It was giv-
en front page publication yester-
day by the state news, MSU Stu-
dent Daily.
Robertson said all the students
at Ole Miss believe they should be
classed the top football team in
the country.
But there are three major prob-
lems, he said.
1) Location "1,000 miles from
2) The reluctance of other
schools to play Mississippi.
3) The race issue. Mississippi
cannot play any schools where
whites compete against Negroes.
"I would give anything," Rob-
ertson wrote, "if there were some
chance of Ole Miss and Michigan
State playing each other in a Bowl
Game. However, the archaic think-
ing which prevails in our capital
city makes this impossible."
Because of these conditions,
Robertson wrote:
"We realize that a great deal of
the criticism that has been heaped
upon us in recent years because
of our 'creampuff' schedule has
been richly deserved."
MSU Athletic Director Biggie
Munn said the Spartans would love

to meet Ole Miss in football com-
"If you can't meet them, you
can't beat them," he said.
"Michigan State has always re-
fused to meet any school that
would not accept our Negro ath-
letes - this means housing and
everything else."

Phi Delta Phi did what profes-
sional fraternities have been try-I
ing to do for the last five years,.
namely defeat Nu Sigma Nu.
It was a wayward snap from1
the Nu Sigs center that furnished
Phi Delta Phi with the necessary 1
points it needed to win, 2-0.
The winners broke a defensivee
see-saw battle when Pete Tillott-
son made a spectacular grab of
Dick Rinella's aerial and rompedt
for a 32-yard touchdown, only
to have the play recalled on a
blocking violation.
Intercepted Pass
With timerrunning out late in
the second half, Jim Roberts in-
tercepted a Phi Delta Phi pass
and returned it to the enemy 26,to
put Nu Sigma Nu in its lone scor-
ing opportunity. The hope was
short - lived, however, as PDP
John Niehuss grabbed a Nu Sig
pass on the goal line, and lateral-
led to teammate Henry Cashen,
who sprinted the eighty yards to
score. The touchdown was nulli-
fied by a second blocking penalty.
Overtime Tally
In the lower half of the brack-
et, Phil Keubeller's last-ditch toss
on the sixth play of overtime went
for a tally and a victory for Phi
Chi as it qualified for next week's
finals with a 7-0 conquest of the
Finding himself deep in his own
territory at the 19, Keubeller
faded to pass and found Dick
Dickerson, who hauled in the pig-
skin and raced the remaining dis-
tance to score.
In second place semi-final ac-
tion, Psi Omega's versatile helms-
man Nel Sherbourne directed his
gridders to a 22-0 victory over
Phi Alpha Kappa.
Plucked Aerial
Harvey Johnson neatly plucked
a Sherbourne aerial out of the
grasp of a would-be interceptor
and raced for the forst score.
Sherbourne tossed to Keith Mor-
rill for another, climaxing a drive
from the Psi Omega 12. And on the
final play of the game, adding in-
sult to injury, Steve Heald chalk-

The two-week draft deferment
granted to Green Bay Packer half-
back and .National Football
League-leading scorer, Paul Hor-
nung, was criticized yesterday by
Sen. Jack Miller (R-Iowa).
The Associated Press quoted
Miller as saying, "Regardless of
the merits of Hornung's case, it
has been handled in such a way as
to cause widespread suspicion."
"The availability of Hornung to
play in. two key games for the
current NFL leaders was the real
reason underlying his deferment,"
he added..
Faces Colts Sunday
The two key- games are this
Sunday's encounter with the Bal-
timore Colts at Baltimoi'e and
next Sunday's game with the Chi-
cago Bears at Chicago.
Hornung had been scheduled to
go on active duty with the 86th
Army Engineering Corps at Fort
Riley, Kansas, on October 30;
however, the 5th Army head-
quarters ordered him to report
to the Great Lakes, Ill., Naval
Hospital for further examination
and evaluation of his condition.
Hornung had been suffering from
a neck ailment resulting from a
pinched nerve.
Thus far in the 1961 NFL sea-
son, Hornung has carried 65 times
and gained 369 yards for a very
healthy 5.7 yards-per-carry aver-
age. In his own special field, scor-
ing points, he has run for six
touchdowns, caught one touch-
down pass, kicked 27 extra points
and made good on 11 of 14 field-
goal attempts for a grand total
of 102 points scored-very nearly
half of the Packers' team total
of 222 points.
Distant Second
Hornung's nearest rival in the
scoring race, Lenny Moore of the
Colts, is a distant second with
only 66 points.
Averaging slightly less than 15
points a game-the same average
with which he finished last sea-
son when he broke the NFL single-
season scoring record with 176
points in 12 games--Hornung
seemed almost certain to break
Pro Hockey
Boston 5, Montreal 2
Detroit 1, New York 0

his own record because of the two
additional games which each NFL
team must play this season.
Shoulder Hurt
The Packers currently lead the
NFL's western division with a 6-1
record and stand a very good
chance of holding on to that
lead with Hornung in the lineup
for at least two more weeks.
