THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Timberlake Tops Quarterback List I I.

I

By Charlie Towle -

By JIM TINDALL
"If everybody is well, we will be
solid at quarterback this season,"
said offensive backfield coach
Hank Fonde yesterday.
This statement was prompted by
last week's injuries to quarter-
backs Bob Timberlake and Dick
Vidmer. Vidmer was put out of
action for a good part of the sea-
son with a broken bone in his leg,
while Timberlake suffered a leg
bruise. Although Timberlake did
not miss any practices this week,

he was not operating at full ca-
pacity until yesterday.
Fonde pointed out that, "Tim-
berlake is operating at almost 100
per cent, and will start the closed
scrimmage today."
A Notch Above
Examining the quarterback pros-
pects, Fonde explained, "Timber-
lake, Frosty Evashevski and Rick'
Volk are a notch above the other,
candidates in all phases of quar-
terbacking, and specifically what
is demanded by the type of offense
that we run. They all pass well

and are capable of doing the job."
he .said.
Timberlake, with two varsity
seasons already under his belt, is
presently calling the signals for
the first team. "He is a real fine
player, and he can .throw as far
as anyone in the Big Ten," Fonde
said yesterday. The 6-4, 215
pounder, has also proven himself
to be a capable runner over the
past seasons.
Behind him is Evashevski who,
according to Fonde "is seasoned
to playing under pressure by his
past two years on the team."
Evashevski played 55 and 58 min-
utes respectively in his last two
seasons with the Wolverines.
Volk for Defense
Third in the chain of command
is Volk, a sophomore, and scholas-
tic All-America. Although Fonde

spoke highly of Volk's offensive
skills, he indicated that, "present
plans are *to use Volk as primarily
a defensive player."
Also contending for the quarter-
back slot are Pete Hollis and
Wally Gabler. Hollis is a junior
who has yet to see action in a
game, but has shown well in prac-
tice. He hails from Detroit where
he was listed as an all-city, all-
state, All-America quarterback.
Gabler, a junior college All-
Amzerica at New Mexico Military
Institute, is a junior this season,
If Vidmer is able to return this
season, the quarterback picture
will really look bright. The sopho-
more from Jeanette, Pennsylvania
was one of the outstanding players
last spring and was the second-
ranked passer at the time of his
injury.

SPORTS SHORTS:
Osuna, IBneno Win
In Opening Round

By The Associated Press
FOREST HILLS, N.Y. - Rafael
Osuna of Mexico and Maria Bueno
of Brazil had Latin rhythms to
their strokes yesterday in open-
ing defense of their national sin-
gles tennis championships with ef-
fortless, straight-set victories.
We Want You
The' Daily sports staff still
needs you. That's right, there's
still time to become a member
of this highly-touted group. So
stop hesitating, finish reading
the paper, and then dash over
to the Daily office to see Gary
Weiner.
IOsuna, quick as a jungle cat
and utilizing a deft touch, breez-
ed past Claude de Gronckel of
Belgium 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 without once
losing a service.
Miss Bueno, ten pounds plump-
er than a year ago and perhaps
half a step slower, showed no loss
of her rapier-like shots in over-
whelming Jenny Morris of South-
ern Rhodesia 62, 6-1 in a second
round match. Both drew opening
byes.
Second-seeded Dennis Ralston,
one of the big two in America's
D Davis Cup defense, won a first
f round victory in the sweltering
heat and complained "I was
lousy."
"If I don't get better I won't
last long," the gifted but erratic
young man from Bakersfield
Calif., grumbled after winning
over Terry Ryan of South Africa,
10-8, 6-3, default.
After losing the second set,Ryan
told the umpire he was unable to
continue.
"I couldn't breathe," the hand-
some, dark-haired South African
Tsaid. '

McElhenny to Lions
DETROIT -- National Football
League veteran halfback Hugh Mc-
Elhenny has been signed and add-
ed to the Detroit Lions' 1964
roster, Coach George Wilson an-
nounced yesterday.
McElhenny, once a star halfback
with the San Francisco 49ers and
recently released by the New York
Giants, reported to the Lions'
training camp Thursday.
Wilson said one unidentified
player was placed on waivers to
make room for McElhenny.

Stories about the New York World's Fair appeared throughout
the summer on the news, entertainment, fashion, food, building and
comic pages of the nation's newspapers and magazines. Now, with
the Labor Day weekend bringing to a close another summer of travel,
the biggest tourist trap in the country makes it to the sports page
of The Michigan Daily.
Why? As one of the millions who shelled out his greenstuff at
the $2 window at the entrance I found in the fair one of the most
concentra1ed areas of competitive sports since the Rome Olympics.
Most of these "sports" were of the non-formal variety, of course.
There was the contest between the various food dispensaries
on the fair grounds over who could charge the highest price for the
least amount of food. The Granada Restaurant in the Spanish
Pavilion led the field at the time of my visit with its entry of a
bowl of cauliflower for a$1.35.
Another contest, this one meant for the fair sightseer
instead of the exhibitors, took the form of that old children's
puzzle book favorite: how many cats (or what have you) can
you find in this picture? Only in this game the object is to
find Coca-Cola bottles.
The Coca-Cola Co. has set up a rather elaborate, detailed
display of scenes from various parts of the world; you enter a
room decked out like the lalaysian jungle, another like the
Austrian Alps, and still another like a ship erusing off Rio ,de
Janerio.
Coca-Cola Ever ywhere ..
.In each of these beautifully conceived scenes the Coke company
has cleverly concealed a yet undetermined number of Coca-Cola
bottles. For instance, you might spot a monkey swinging throudh the
Malaysian jungle with that familiar greenish glass container hugged
tightly in his furry paw. I counted 37 such bottles, but I'm sure this
is nowhere near the record.
There are many more of these informal competitions-outguess-
ing wind shifts while walking by the huge and somewhat uncontained
fountains of the fair, walking racing from the entrance at gate one
to the Hell Driver's Arena to the Balentine Beer Old New York
exhibit-a stop is permitted here-and back to the gate, all which
add to the competitive atmosphere of the fair.
The World's Fair is not all informal sports, however. It has
introduced one formal game. This game is located at the General
Motors Pavilion, though lesser versions of it are being played con-
tinuously at all the major payilions. The game requires 1,000 to
10,000 players. It can be plaed by players of any age and sex.
It is best played around the outside of 4 four-sided stricture
with walls at. least 100 yards long.
Name of the Game ...
The name of the game has never been formally announced, but
names like Lemming, Keep-Up-With-The-Joneses, or Life are apropos.
To start the game you get in line to see the G.M. Futurama exhibit
and pick out a passive part of the crowd, for instance a group of
touring Boy Scouts from Kansas, as a reference. The object of the
game is to put as much distance between you and your reference
as is possible in the time allowed, usually about an hour.
Distance is counted in human bodies. No equipment.is permitted,
although little old ladies . have been known to smuggle knitting
needles into the game. The, game combines an element of chess-
tactical positioning, of football-cutting and blocking, and of bull-
fighting-the chance of getting trampled.
If you are planning a trip to the World's Fair next year and
would like .to compete, you can practice at registration, the Michigan
Stadium johns or the meal lines in any of the University's dorms.
But there's nothing like the real thing-the elbows flying, choking
dust covering the playing field, the screams of the fallen and the
smell of blood in your nostrils.

ATHLETIC BOARD:
Regents To Hear Election Plan

4

By SCOTT BLUCH
A student originated proposal to
change the election procedures for
candidates to the Board in Con-
trol of Intercollegiate Athletics
will be presented to the Regents at
their Sept. 18 meeting.
The plan calls for change which
would. give all students the right
to vote in the election, and also
recommends that all candidates
be required to petition for the
office.
Regents' Bylaw 29.08 now states
that the Athletic Manager's Coun-
cil places two candidates on the
ballot and anyone else interested
in running for the Board must
have a petition signed by 300 male
students. In former elections, only
Howe Signs
For $30,000
DETROIT (P) - Gordie Howe,
the National Hockey League's all-
time scoring leader, has signed his
1964-65 contract, the Detroit Red
Wings said yesterday.
The 36-year-old right winger
closed out 1963-64 campaign with
a lifetime total of 566 goals for.
18 big league seasons. His 545th
last November broke the NHL
record set by 'Maurice Richard of
the Montreal Canadiens.
A Red Wing spokesman said he
could not reveal Howe's salary.
However, he added "it is generaily
assumed that Howe's pay is in the
$30,000 bracket.

male students have been allowed
to vote in the election.
The proposal was originally re-
quested, by Student Government
Council last April, then sent to
Vice-President for' Student Affairs
James A. Lewis. After slight re-
visions were suggested by Athletic
Director H. O. (Fritz) Crisler, the
altered proposal was returned and
approved by SGC at its first meet-
ing of the fall last Wednesday.
Lewis will present the motion
to the Regents for approval at the
September meeting.
The original proposal was made
by SGC April 18 by Administra-
tive Vice - President H o w a r d
Schechter whose motion required
each candidate to petition for the
position of student representative
to the Board.
The proposal also gave all stu-
dents a right to vote for the office.
The proposal was adopted by
Council with an amendment re-
questing that any student be elig-
ible to petition for the position.
At present, the candidate must be
in his fourth term at the Univer-
sity.
SGC President Tom Smithson
wrote to Lewis on April 13, in-
forming him that SGC had adopt-
ed the resolution by the necessary
two-thirds vote and that it recom-
mended the proposal to the Re-
gents.
During the summer, Lewis con-
sulted Crisler who recommended
some minor changes in the SGC
proposal. On June 30, Lewis sent
Smithson Crisler's suggested
changes to the SGC proposal.;
Smithson pointed out to Lewis

that it was necessary for the en-
tire Council to discuss the issue.
Lewis replied that this would be
acceptable and that he would 'wait
until Council returned from its
summer vacation.
On Wednesday night, Schechter
presented Crisler's recommended
changes to his proposal. Crisler
said that he felt the two candi-
dates should be "undergraduate
male students in their fourth term
in the University." He agreed with
the Schecter motion that the en-
tire student body elect the stu-
dent representative and that every
candidate have a petition signed
by 300 students.
With the backing of Crisler,
Smithson and Lewis both express-
ed confidence that the proposed
change will be adopted. If adopt-
ed, the new bylaw will be in effect
in next spring's election of a stu-
dent representative to the Ath-
letic Board.
Ticket Sales
Hit New Peak
Ticket manager Don Weir an-
nounced yesterday that 16,000
Athletic Coupons have already
been sold this fall in comparison
with only 15,000 all last season.
Weir also pointed out that last
year's coupon 'included admission
to basketball games while this
year's do not. Coupons will remain
on sale next week at the ticket
window of the Athletic Adminis-'
tration Bldg. for $12.

in and day out for four years, you
" really have to love the sport. And
that's why I keep at it."
This season Evashevski may not
play much. Timberlake is getting
rave notices from football prog-
nosticators across the country as
a potential All-Big Ten quarter-
back. The first edition of this
season's Football News ranks Tim-
berlake on the first All-Big Ten
team ahead of Northwestern's
All-American Tom Meyers.
Timberlake could possibly make
the fans forget all about the flashy
sophomore Vidmer this season.
But. it will take the coming three
seasons to see what the injury has
done .to Vidmer. Many think that
the Pennsylvania high school All-
American has too many signs of
greatness to be thrown by sitting
out a season. But as in the stories
of Chandler and Evashevski, it's
hard to tell what will happen until
it's all over.
