The Long, Hot Summer
Farley Qualifies First for Olympic
Meet W. G. Gridley. He's a happy man.
Mr. Gridley, who lives in East Lansing, Michigan, and who is
the manager of the local Kresge dime store there, has just spent
the summer selling 1800 Frisbees to local college enthusiasts.
Insignificant? Trivial? Never. *For, in the great hinterland to
the north, Michigan State University has Frisbee fever. In the
greatest athletic revolution since Knute Rockne and the forward
pass, these saucer-shaped missiles made by the Wham-O Mfg. Col
have surplanted touch football, necking, studying, and grassers as
the Spartan pasttime-and threaten to undermine the entire athletic
But why? The State News, MSU }
campus paper's roving news staff,
tried to find out. Pat Wilson, an
MSU sophomore from Detroit,
claims that the ultimate object
is to "perfect your technique in
handling a Frisbee."
Others weren't taken in quite'
so easily. Robert Rice, a junior
from Corunna, is a Frisbee, hold-
out. "I don't own one, but if I
did," says Bob, "I'd probably use
it for an ash tray. They fail to
impress me." The question now is,
will Bob lose his scholarship?"........................)..

"Why did they call it a Frisbee',
queries Bob, scratching his right forehand with the crook of his left
index finger. Then, as with greater insight into this new problem,
"Why didn't they call, it'a Malcom, or a Sydney, or a Ralph?" That's
a good question, Bob.
But the best question was answered by MSU Dean of Students
John Fuzak. What next after the Frisbee? "Maybe yo-yos." Could be.

Elsewhere in the wonderful world of sport this summer, ex-
Michigan tackle Tom Keating made a big hit with the Buffalo Bills
of the American Football League when he almost blasted St. Louis
Cardinal guard Ken Gray's head off in the opening scrimmage of
the season. Keating, who may be in line for a starting defensive
end post after his brilliant fisticuff debut, laughed when asked
about the fight which broke out during the scrimmage against the
Cardinals. Hah, hah.
"Keating beat the hell out of Gray," smiled fellow Bills rookie
Hatch Rlosdahl, formerly of Penn .State fame. "Ring Magazine
should have covered that scrimmage."
"It started when I rushed the passer the play before," said
Keating. "Ankerson (Jack Ankerson, rookie quarterback) had the
ball on his hip, and I went for it. I guess I hit him when.I did.
"The next play Gray grabbed my face mask and almost tore
my head off. So I swung at him and he swung at me."
Keating and Rosdahl agreed that the Cardinals were stronger
than the NFL champion Chicago Bears they had bumped face masks
with in the All-Star game. Both Keating and fellow ex-Wolverine
guard Joe O'Donnell saw considerable action in the game.
