THE *2 WINDOW
By TOM WEIREER
Two Dollar Window Returns
To Haunt Journalism Profs
'A EDITOR'S NOTE: Tom Webber; 1962-63 Daily Sports Editor, is currently
stationed in Denver with the U.S.Ariny while he tries to decide if he should
volunteer for Viet Nam or not. "I understand they'.re short of information
people over there and it might be an interesting assignment," Tom writes.,
Meanwhile, the post is completely open and when Tom isn't swinging a mop
or out drinking he is working on The Stethoscope, the post paper, where
this column originaly appeared. The $2 Window rides again!.
My journalism professors never were very proud of me. I always
had the feeling they wished I would quietly fall out of the Press Box
at the University of Michigan stadium or be trampled to death at a
football practice.
In'all fairness this attitude oinly applied to those who knew I
was a journalism student. The rest just recognized the name from
their class roster. I can recall my journalism counselor peering
over his two-inch thick glasses and growling, "Webber, when are
you going to grow up!" He was a little short guy who walked with
a limp, peered at everybody and was fond of. saying-"That's not
the way NBC would do it." Anyway, he was disturbed because I
had chosen a sports topic as the subject for a term project. I gathered
his exclamation meant I should be writing about Viet Nam, MEDI-
CARE, the gradual disappearance of the bald eagle, or some such
serious topic.
f Due to my persistence those professors learned for the first
time that Mich'igan had ten other varsity sports besides football,
and some were shocked to hear of the football team..Of course,
I learned you don't get into graduate school on a C average,
but get drafted instead.
The Kid Returns ...
So it's with a bit of nostalgia that the "$2 Window," the sporting
world and I join the forces again. I ought to send a story back to
the journalism department under the headline, "The Kid Types,
Again."
I first introduced the $2 Window as Sports Editor of the Michi-
gan Daily, the University of Michigan student newspaper. The
journalism profs abhorred The Daily-so. I loved it and could
usually be found in the Daily building instead of the classroom.
It's a good thing they didn't hear about the touch football and
whiffle-ball games in the Daily parking lot or I might still be in
Ann Arbor. With all due consideration to Houston, the first indoor
football games were really played by my sports staff and I.

Managing Rewarding To Evans

'M' Ticket Sales

Show Renewed Grid Ho

By LLOYD GRAFF
Everyone knows a manager of
a football team is a scrawny,
cross-eyed little fellow with a
squeaky voice and bashful man-
ner.
Don't be silly. Meet Bob Evans,
senior manager of the Michigan
football team.
A compact 5'8", 160 pounder
who won four letters as a quarter-
back at Litchfield, Michigan be-
fore coming to Ann Arbor, he
knows what it is to be a star
athlete. He was offered athletic.
scholarships at Olivet and Hills-
dale Colleges after he ended his
prep career, but a broken ankle
the summer after he graduated
ended the dreams he had of play-
ing college ball.
Evans soon learned, however,
that there were other ways to
satisfy a love of football, besides
playing. He became a freshman
manager and finally worked his,
way up to head manager.
Rewarding Experience
"Sure, sometimes you're just a
glorified waterboy, but, being with
the team through all the ups and
downs is a very rewarding ex-

perience. Oh, sometimes I can pic-
ture myself running back a kick-
off, but really that's behind me
now," he says without signs of
regret.
Besides just rewarding experi-
ence Evans gets some tangible
privileges. He eats at the team
training table and gets to make
all the away trips with the Wol-
verine football team. On the trips
he is custodian of the meal money
for the players which tends to

make him a center of attraction.
He also gets a Blue sweater for
the manager's letter he earns. 1
Mainly Overseer
As head manager he is overseer
of the understaff managers who
do the tasks which are so neces-
sary for an efficient practice ses-

sion, like putting out helmets and
water cans, and fetching chin
straps. Coach Bump Elliott calls
him a "very valuable asset to the
team and especially the coaching
staff."
One of the essential if unoffi-
cial duties of a manager is to be
a devoted and enthusiastic fan. "I
get up as high as anybody on the
team before a game," says Evans.
He yells himself hoarse during a
game and his exhaustion after-
wards is as real as that of the

halfback who played both ways.
But yelling is all he can do. A
managership is not a job for a
jealous person or a glory seeker.
It remains mainly a thankless
job. As head manager, he must
take orders and assume respon-
sibility. He'll never be remembered
as the man who scored the touch-
down that beat Michigan State.
He isn't even named in the sou-
venir programs. But for Bob
Evans, manager, "just being a
part of the team is enough."

Is this Michigan's year?
Many football prognosticators
have already called Coach Bump
Elliott's gridders as the "dark
horse" of the Big Ten or as the
1964 Big Ten Champions.
Michigan football fans are 'not
exactly sure how the Wolverines
are going to finish, but the feel-
ing of cautious optimism seems
to haver saturated the Ann Arbor
air.
The sale of student athletic
coupons has already eclipsed last
year's total by 2.000. The 17,000
coupons sold neither entitles one
admittance to basketball games
nor to a Michigan State football
game. Last season, the coupon
included both of these features.
Non-student season ticket sales
have reached the 20,000 mark,
about the same as last season. In;
recent years, season ticket sales
have declined in the years in

which the Michigan St
Ohio State games were n
at home. This season's

U.S. Wins Third Race

NEWPORT, R.I. (JP)-Constel-
lation's sailors gave a lesson in
seamanship to Sovereign Saturdayj
beating the British challenger for
the America's Cup by three-quar-
ters of a mile with a flawless dis-
play of sail handling in rough
seas and high winds.
The victory gave the American
defender of the New York Yacht
Club a 3-0 lead. She needs only
to win the next. race Monday to
keep yachting's oldest trophy
safely on this shore.

COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
Falcons, Middies Both Win

.;

That first printing of the $2 Window was a classic, too. I
consumed an easy 25 newspaper inches trying to explain why
I chose that particular name. In truth, it doesn't make much
sense, since I've never even been to a race track.. When a blonde
asked the other night if it was win, place, or show, all I could.
answer was, "mostly losers."
Common Hopes . .
Aside from these items, I'm ,really not too eccentric. Like every-
body, I think the Detroit Lions will win the NFL championship, the,
Detroit Red Wings will take the Stanley Cup and Michigan will be
the nation's top football team. Unfortunately it looks dlike the Detroit
Tigers have been upset in the pennant race for the 19th consecutive
year. They never have been the same since Dick Wakefield, John
Lipon and Wayne Terwilliger left.
I may lose a few readers in a week or two with the introduction
of inning-football to the west, but will win them back when I start
boldly and accurately predicting winners of the fall's football games.
It must be admitted that my percentage in past seasons would have
been greatly increased if it wasn't for the weakness of picking
Michigan to beat Michigan State. Visitors to The Stethoscope office
should be aware that I'm touchy about being reminded of MSU's
recent success against the Wolverines. .

By The Associated Press
Falcons Win
SEATTLE - A quick strike for
three points and a strategic give-
away in the waning minutes earn-
ed the stubborn Air Force Falcons
a 3-2 football victory over heavily
favored Washington yesterday in
the opening game for both teams.
The decision made it two in a'
row for the Cadets from Colorado
and the field goal specialist who
provided the margin in the 10-4
decision last year-Brt Holaday
of Jamestown, N.D.-did it again.
Staubach Stopped
UNIVERSITY, Pa. -- Navy's
hard-charging defense stole the
show- yesterday from All-American
quarterback Roger Staubach as
the Middies defeated upset-mind-
ed Penn State 21-8 in their 1964
college football opener.
Navy cashed In on a fumble and
two pass interceptions, one a 58-
yard touchdown run by Duncan
Ingraham in the third quarter,
for its three touchdowns.
Meanwhile, Penn State almost
stymied Staubach, limiting the
1963 Heisman Trophy winner to
only five pass completions in 13
attempts for 44 yards and held
him to minus 14 yards on the
ground.

Badgers Victorious
MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin's
sputtering Badgers scored two sec-
ond quarter touchdowns, one on a
fumble recovery im the end zone,
and then fought off Kansas State's
challenge yesterday en route to a
17-7 victory in a non-conference
football opener.
The Badgers, tuning up for the
Big Ten season, dominated the
first 30 minutes of action but the
Big Eight Wildcats rallied gamely
in the second half in a vain bid
to pull a major upset.

Oklahoma Challenged
COLLEGE PARK, Md.-Highly
rated Oklahoma, threatened with
a football upset by a Chilean soc-.

cer kicker, was saved yesterday by
a 90-yard touchdown pass play
f r o m third - string quarterback
John Hammond to Lance Rentzel
and downed fiercely stubborn
Maryland 13-3.
TCU Dumped
LAWRENCE, Kan. - Favored
Kansas escaped with a 7-3 victory
over Texas Christian yesterday as
TCU lost a fumble one foot from
the Jayhawk goal with 20 seconds
left in their football game.
Quarterback Randy Howard's
43-yard pass to end Charles
Cainpbell, who eluded a tackler
at the Kansas 25, gave TCU a
first down at the Kansas 3 with
1:33 left.

In losing the British saved them-
selves the humiliation of last
Thursday's trouncing. They were
never in a threatening position but
kept doggedly in the foamy wake
of Constellation and both yachts
splashed into rough seas created
by an easterly wind that hiked up
to 23 knots.
Peter Scott again turned in an
admirable start, getting his 68-
foot Sovereign to the line ahead
and in a favorable windaward po-
sition.
