Since Joe O'Donnell's thrilling
50-yard run from punt formation
against Southern Methodist and
Frank Stagg's infamous 15-yard
punt against Navy last season in-
terest has been focused. on Mich-
igan's booting game.
Although a college football
team does not normally rely on
its place kickers to win games-a
good toe is hard to find-there are
occasions when a consistent man
can make the difference. This be-
came all too painfully clear at
last year's Michigan State game.
When a drive had stalled at
about the State 30-yard line with
55 seconds to go Bob Timberlake
was sent in to try for the tie-
breaking field goal. When the
kick was short and off to the left'
hopes of finally topping the Spar-
tans were dashed.
Last Year's Kicker
Timberlake was the only place
kicker used last year. He missed
in his first three attempts and
only broke that apparently in-
visible shield between the uprights
in the final game of the season
against Ohio State.
"We haven't been doing much
in that direction up till now, but
Timberlake will begin concentrat-
ing on kicking probably beginning
this week," says. Coach Bump.

O'Donnell Gone
Captain Joe O'Donnell did most
of Michigan's punting last year,
averaging 36.4 yards for each of
his 48 punts. Other talented toes
belonged to Tom Prichard and
Dick Rindfuss. They averaged
35.0 and 36.8 yards for their two
and four punts respectively.
However O'Donnell and Prich-
ard graduated last spring and
Rindfuss' tender ankle will not be

O'Donnell's heir apparent seems
to be soph end Stan Kemp. Others

Among Pros
By The Associated Press
The Houston Oilers of the
American Football League and the
Baltimore Colts of the NFL both
traded a veteran player yesterday
for apparent disciplinary reasons.
The Houston action involved
star halfback Billy Cannon, for-
mer Heisman Trophy winner, who
was traded to the Oakland Raid-
ers for guard Sonny Bishop, full-
back Bob Jackson, and offensive
end Dobie Craig. Baltimore swap-
ped Lou Michaels, defensive end
and field goal kicker, to the Pitts-
burgh Steelers for linebacker Bill
Saul and halfback Marv Woodson.
Michaels had been suspended by
Coach Buddy Parker last week for
breaking training rules. He was
soon reinstated and played with
the team on Sunday. Oiler coach
Sammy Baugh refused to give de-
tails but it was understood Can-
non was penalized twice for vio-
lating the club curfew. One of
Cannon's fines amounted to $1000,
as compared to a normal fine of
$50 for a similar infraction.
