through," he added. Elliott started
sophs Carl Ward at right half-
back and Jim Detwiler at left
halfback. Detwiler was subbing
for junior John Rowser, out of
action with a leg injury.
1 Ward and Detwiler picked up 51
and 72 yards rushing, respectively.
But the team's rushing leaders
were Timberlake with 80 yards
r and senior fullback Mel Anthony
with 79 yards on the ground.
Sophomore fullback Dave Fisher
made it into the game in the
fourth quarter and picked up 28
yards on six carries.
Elliott said, "I think the game
was in doubt until the third
quarter, when Timberlake on a
third down pass play ran to get
the first down by a yard."
The Wolverines had taken over
on their own 20-yard line after
Bart Holaday was wide on a field
goal from the Michigan 16-yard
line. The Wolverine offense moved
to the 45-yard line before it seem-
ingly stalled. But on a third down
and 30 yards to go situation, Tim-
berlake couldn't find a receiver
open and ran up the middle of
the field to' the Air Force 24-yard
line, just making the first down
by a yard.
Anthony Gets First
Three plays later Anthony gain-'
ed a first down on the 14-yard
line on a fourth down and one
yard to go situation. Anthony
picked up four more yards on the
next play. Detwiler then started
to sweep around right end, cut
inside the .end, and when hit by
opposing tacklers about the four-
yard line simply bulled his way
into the end zone.
This score and Timberlake's con-
version put Michigan on top 24-7.
Both teams threatened in the final
quarter but neither scored.
Michigan moved in. for the first
score of the season after the third
play of the game when Falcon
halfback Paul Wargo fumbled and'
senior left tackle Arnie Simkus
recovered on the Air Force 35-
yard line. It took the Wolverines
eight plays to chalk up the seven
points.
Second Touchdown
Michigan's middle touchdown
came after a close call on defense.
Junior linebacker Tom Cecchini
had temporarily halted a Falcon
drive by recovering Wargo's
fumble on the Michigan 15-yard
line.
But two plays later Timberlake
passed to Henderson at the 28-

yard line and Henderson, trying
to outflank a Falcon defender and
escape down the left sidelines,
fumbled the ball. It was recovered
by Lloyd Duncan on the 15-yard
line and the Falcons were once
again in a threatening position.
Fullback Steve Amdor tried to
carry the ball through right guard
on the first play but was nailed
at the line of scrimmage by junior
linebacker Chuck Dehlin. On the
next play, quarterback Tim Mur-
phy lofted a pass to end Bill
Landes but sophomore defensive
halfback Rich Volk leaped in front
of Landes to catch the ball for
a touchback.
Eight Plays
Micligan started from the 20-
yard line and charged down the
80 yards in only eight plays for
the touchdown. The big plays of
the series were " a 34-yard run
around left end by Ward who had
taken Timberlake's pitchout and
a 25-yard Timberlake to Steve
Smith pass play. Anthony scored
from five yards out on the second
play of the -second quarter.
Murphy completed four passes
an a pass interference penalty
put the ball on the Michigan
seven-yard line. But the Falcon
attack bogged down and on a
fourth down 'and four yards to go
situation, Murphy was ready to
hold the ball for Holaday's field
goal attempt. But Murphy picked
up the ball, rolled to his right and
hit halfback Dick Czarnota in the
end zone for the touchdown.
Detwiler Runback
Air Force kicked off to Michigan
and Detwiler ran it out of the
end zone to the 35-yard line of
the Wolverines. Timberlake led the
Wolverines down the field with
passes ,of 16 and ten yards to
junior end Craig Kirby and his
own 19-yard run. Then on the
six-yard line of the Falcons, a
personal foul was called on Michi-
gan and the attack stalled.
Timberlake attempted a field1
goal but it was blocked by Amdor.
The Michigan signal-caller fell
on the ball at the _45-yard line,
but got another chance to go for1
the three-pointer when an offsidesc
penalty was called on Air Force.t
This time Timberlake's attempt t
was wide but the Falcons were1
offside again. The third time Tim-r
berlake didn't miss. He split thex
uprights from the 16-yard line,r
putting the Wolverines on top, 17-
7, at halftime.

PHILLIES LOSE AGAIN:

Reds Are One-Half Game Out

By The Associated Press
The Philadelphia Phillies, in
first place in the National League
since July 16, were in danger yes-
terday of toppling from the top
spot following their sixth straight
defeat, 6-4 to Milwaukee.
The Cincinnati Reds whipped
New York 6-1 for their seventh
consecutive victory - longest in
the league this season-and crept
to within one-half game of the!
Phillies. Third-place St. Louis
moved to 11/2 back, beating Pitts-
'burgh 6-3, while San Francisco,
rained out at Chicago, stood three
behind.f
The Reds pulled even in the
loss column with the Phillies while
the Cardinals were one down and
the Giants two down. Philadelphia
has six games left, Cincinnati and

St. 'Louis seven each and San
Francisco eight.
Philadelphia led 4-3 until Rico
Carty lashed a three-run triple
off Bobby Shantz in the ninth
inning. Hank Aaron and Eddie
Mathews singled before Frank
Boiling reached first on an error,
loading the bases for Carty. Alex,
Johnson hit a two-run homer in
the Phillies' first.
In the American League the
New York Yankees reduced their
magic number to four with a 7-0
triumph 'over Washington. Any
combination of New York victories
and losses by the runners-up total-
ing four will clinch the pennant
for the Yankees.
Baltimore defeated Cleveland
5-3, remaining four games behind

New York. Russ Snyder, Boog
Powell and Brooks Robinson each
hit solo homers for the Orioles.
Reliever Dick Hall helped Milt
Pappas post his 16th victory in
22 decisions.
Left-hander Gary Peters won
his 20th game while Don Buford
stroked three singles, scored three
runs and stole two bases as the
Chicago White Sox defeated
Kansas City 5-2 last night.

t

Detwiler, starting his first col-
legiate game in place of Rowser,
thrilled the fans with his sheer
running power. Backfield coach
Hank Fonde commented, "We've
known all along that Jim was a
good hard runner. As a matter of
fact, one of the most pleasing
aspects of the day was the job
