In One Ear
by Brian Macdlowry

Michigan's Annual Blue-White

Never Again
Y VERY EXISTENCE almost came to a vicious end a week ago
Friday night-along with about 200 other buffons. No, it wasn't
during skit night in Hill Auditorium, although the show there
couldn't have been more malignant than the one at Ann Arbor High
School. It was billed in The Daily as mortal combat between Ricky
"The Crusher", Cortez-Mexico's answer to the Swedish Angel, and
Dick "Mr. Michigan" Garza-Michigan's answer to the fellow who
keeps getting sand kicked in his face at the beach in Charles At-
las ads. But to tell the truth I didn't see a mortal enter the ring all
It's incidental that the two combatants puffed to a draw, for in
professional wrestling it's not whether you win or lose that counts,
but how you play the game. Friday night the game was according to
Hoyle. Even the little girl sitting next to me seemed to fathom the
plot, "Lookit how mean that man is," she exclaimed in disbelief, as
The Crusher slammed an autograph book back into the face of a
rather frightened little boy at ringside. And just because the kid for-
got his pencil, too.
Crusher meets aristocrat .. .
MEAN WASN'T THE WORD. The Crusher looked tough enough to
pin two lions at the same time without conceding any weight.
Unfortunately there were no kings of beasts present so he had to be
content with Garza, a rather suave looking aristocrat who entered
the ring with his accustomed flourish.
The little girl had only compassion for Mr. Michigan. "Momma,
is that nice looking man going to fight that big fat one?" Mom ex-
plained they weren't going to fight they were going to wrestle, a
roomy distinction. A grudge match, a duel to the death-with a 20
minute time limit.
Actually, it's difficult to understand why Garza showed at all.
His strategy seemed to center around letting Cortez gouge him in the
eyes, pulls his hair, uses his stomach for an altar, and beat a tatoo on
his chin with a forearm. Not to mention the times Cortez used Garza's
head as a pile driver to ward off the oncoming ring posts.
MR. MICHIGAN seemed to take his punishment in better spirits
than the crowd. In fact every housemother in the auditorium rose
to her feet with that's-the-last-straw indignation when The Crusher
began to massage Garza's eyesockets with contraband tape. Even
the rest of us couldn't stomach his atrocity, and bellowed for justice
from the referee.
It was then that Cortez became insolent himself and hurled
his challenge to the assembled throng. No one moved. No one
breathed. No one accepted. The little girl had her hands over her eyes
as though she was watching the climax to a Frankenstein movie.
It's an errie feeling having your life in someone else's hands-espe-
cially someone who knew not and never will.
Garza delivered us from evil moments later, however, when he
brought his exulting rival down to the mat with a volley of forearm
smashes and a dropkick, the mechanics of which would make Michi-
gan mat coach Cliff Keen turn over in his office. By this time the
crowd was in an uproar. They wanted blood, but the Michigan kid
must have forgotten his capsules. He played it straight.
Could have been worse
fN HIS ANXIETY GARZA overlooked two of his most potent weap-
ons-two sticks or a match. Either one rubbed in the vicinity of
Cortez' heavy bristled chest would have lit him up faster than Sequoia
National Park during the dry season. It's not that I have an aversion
to hair, it's just the first time I've contemplated a Fuller Brush man
with a built in sample.
Friday's card was the first wrestling extravaganza in Ann Arbor
in who-cares-how-many-months. They came in all sizes. In addition
to Rick and Dick, two of Bill Veeck's midgets were on hand. one of
which, the Black Panther, amused himself by pinching the big boys
in the rumpus anteriorus.
One bout featured a Scottish Duke of some sort, and Cry Baby
something-or-other, who wails unceasingly after each defeat. He
had plenty to cry about Friday. The script called for two quick pins
with the Scotsman preeminent, followed by a hasty 10:15 exit back
to Detroit anonymity.
THESE WRESTLING FANS are a strange breed. Even at $2.50 a
head for ringside, no one seemed disturbed by the early getaway.
I collared one, who said he was a University student, and asked him
how he liked the matches. "Well, I was rootin for Cry Baby so I'm
a little disappointed," he explained. "But I hope they have some more
matches here soon. I hate driving all the way to Detroit." He was dis-
appointed, however, that Dick the Bruised didn't wrestle.
Walking toward the exit, another was lamenting the demise of
Argentina Rocca, the man without a country originale. He seemed
to feel that the barefooted one still had a few good drop-kicks left
In him.
So big time wrestling returned to Ann Arbor. Personally, I think
Denny Fitzgerald and Jim Blaker could whup the whole lot of them-
tag team or otherwise.

Spring Football Finale

.t. (Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf," "The Many
Loves of Dobie Gillis," etc.)


Much will be at stake for 93
Michigan football players today
in the Annual Blue-White spring
intrasquad game in the Stadium
at 2:00 p.m.
The public is invited to watch
the spring practice wind-up, with
the players battling hard to nail
down team positions for the fall.
Also at stake will be a steak
dinner for the winning coaches
in their personal duel, with the
Blue tandem of Backfield Coach
Hank Fonde and Line Coach Jack
Fouts out to win their first game
in three tries.
The White trio of Defensive
Coach Bob Hollway, End Coach
Jack Nelson, and Freshman Coach
Don Dufek will be trying to add
another victory to their 22-21, and
7-0 triumphs.
Elliott Interested
Head Coach Bump Elliott will be
more than an interested spectator
as he will be closely scrutinizing
the day's efforts, along with the
opposing staffs.
The Coaches attempted to di-
vide the two teams evenly for the
encounter, with both squads hav-
ing a mixture of veterans and
newcomers. ,
Both coaching staffs agreed that


the Blue team has a depth edge in
the backfield with the Whites
boasting a slight advantage in
the line, based mainly on exper-
Blues Have Three Starters
The Blue team also has three
of the four starting backs as of
the end of spring practice drills,
while the Whites nabbed five of
the linemen on the starting 11.
Veteran quarterback Dave Glin-
ka has Jack Strobel and Bill Tun-
nicliff along with rookie Bruce
McLenna in the Blue backfield
with him, while speedster Dave
Raimey is the lone regular amcng
the.White backs. Raimey will team
with sophomores-to-be Frosty Ev-
ashevski at quarterback, Harvey
Chapman or Ann Arbor's. Herb
Williams at half, and Bill Dodd
at full. The latter scored two
touchdowns in the final Freshman
game last fall.
The White line has present reg-
ulars Lee Hall and Joe O'Donnzel
at guards, and John Houtman at
tackle, with Captain-elect George
Mans and Jeff Smith at ends. The
other two spots will be filled by
reserve center Frank Maloney snd
newcomer tackle Jim Wiley.
Todd Grant, Captain Jerry
Smith's understudy last year, will

center the Blue line, with tackle
Jon Schopf the only other first
stringer. However, the Blues will
start just one rookie, at tackle. He
will either be Phil Garrison or
Tom Keating, with the condition
of Garrison's injured ankle the
main factor.
Ends Bob Brown and Jim Koro-
win, along with Frank Clappison
and John Minko at guards will
round out the almost completely
veteran line. Brown has seemingly
shaken off a knee injury suffered
in last Saturday's scrimmage
Though these names are fam':-
iar to most football fans, the
coaches are probably going to be
even more concerned about the
play of some of the lesser known
players, especially the newcomers,
who will have to provide needed
depth in the fall. In addition to
the 93 who will be suited up to-
day, are 17 veterans who won't
play for one reason or another.
Spring Sports Men
Six of them are out for spring
sports, including baseball players
Bill Freehan (end) and Ed Hood
(halfback); tennis player Scott
Maentz, another end; and track-
men Bennie McRae and Bill Horn-

Special To The Daily
EVANSTON-The Michigan golf
team arrived Thursday night and
spent yesterday practicing on the
tricky Wilmette Country Club
course, where today they will play
Northwestern and Illinois in a
36-hole triangular meet.
Michigan Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer calls Wilmette "a reason-
ably demanding course of fair
length. It's not real tight but
there are several out-of-bounds.
This course, more so than others,
will give a certain advantage to
the home team," he declared.
Katzenmeyer admits he does not
know much about either team, but
the Wildcats loom as more of a
threat than the Illini.
"From what we saw in their
meet between Wisconsin and Illi-
nois, Northwestern looks like they
have some real good boys," Kat-
zenmeyer said, referring to Rick
Gleascher, Jim Wagner, Jon Wind-
ness, and Ed Menke.
Illinois Coach Ralph Fletcher
is pessimistic as far as his team's
chances are concerned. He lost to
Northwestern by a large 471 to
493 margin, and considering the
Wolverines' victory over Ohio
State, he believes Michigan to be
a prime contender for the Big Ten
Katzenmeyer will stick with the
same six men that have played in
every meet. He is still uncertain
of the definite order, but it will
either be Dick Youngberg or Capt.
Joe Brisson asnumber-one man,
followed by Bill Newcomb and

beck (backs) and reserve- guara
Wally Herrala.
Most of the other 11 are out
because of injuries, including
quarterback Bob Chandler, half-
back Jim Ward, and 1960 starting
full back Ken Tureaud who have
all been running this spring but
will see no contact work until ftll.
In the same boat are guards
Lou Pavlov and Dick Syzmansk,
while defensive backfield specialist
Paul Reader and center John Wal-
ker have beel i hurt in drills, long
with 230 lb. tackle John Lehr and
back John Kowalik. Quarterback
John Stamos and tackle Guy Cur-
tis Will return in the fall.
Prominent Names
Many other names will un-
doubtedly become prominent as
the day wanes, possibly the brother
act of guards Ralph and Don
Perriello, or the Schmidts, Doug
and Paul (no relation) all on the
White team.
Other promising newcomers were
discussed in this week's series on

In just a matter of weeks many of you will be graduating-
especially seniors.
You are of course eager to go out in the great world where
opportunities are limitless and deans nonexistent. At the same
time your hearts are heavy at the thought of losing touch with
so many classmates you have come to know and love.
It is my pleasant task today to assure you that graduation
need not mean losing touch with classmates; all you have to do
is join the Alumni Association and every year you will receive
a bright, newsy, chatty bulletin, chock full of information about
all your old buddies.

Oh, what a red-letter day it is at my house, the day the
Alumni Bulletin arrives!1 I cancel all my engagements, take the
phone off the hook, dismiss my chiropractor, put the ocelot
outside, and settle down for an evening of pure pleasure with.
the Bulletin and (need I add?) a good supply of Marlboro
Whenever I am having fun, a Marlboro makes the fun even
more fun. That filter, that flavor, that pack or box never fails
to heighten my pleasure whether I am watching the television
or playing buck euchre or knitting an afghan or reading Mad
or enjoying any other fun-filled pursuit you might name-ex-
cept, of course, spearfishing. But then, how much spearfiahinig
does one do in Clovis, New Mexico, where I live?
But I digress. Let us return to my Alumni Bulletin and let
me quote for you the interesting tidings about all my old friends
and classmates:
Well, fellow alums, it certainly has been a wing-dinger of a
year for all us old grads! Remember Mildred Cheddar and
Harry Camembert, those crazy kids who always held hands in
Econ II? Well, they're married now and living in Clovis, New
Mexico, where Harry rents spearfishing equipment and Mildred
has just given birth to a lovely 28-pound daughter, her second
in four months. Nice going, Mildred and Harry!
IRginember Jethro Brie, the man we voted most likely to suc-
ceed? Well, old Jethro is still gathering laurels! Last week he
was voted "Motorman of the Year" by his fellow workers in
the Duluth streetcar system. "I owe it all to my brakeman,"
said Jethro in a characteristically modest acceptance speech.
Same old Jethro!
Probably the most glamorous time of all us slums was had by
Francis Macomber last year. He went on a big game hunting
safari all the way to Africa! We received many interesting post
cards from Francis until he was, alas, accidently shot and killed
by his wife and white hunter. Tough luck, Francis!
Wilma "Deadeye" Macomber, widow of the late beloved
Francis Macomber, was married yesterday to Fred "Sureshot"
Quimby, white hunter, in a simple double-ring ceremony in
Nairobi. Good luck, Wilma and Fred!
Well, slums, that just about wraps it up for this year, Keep
'em flying! 01901 smma
