Kirby 's


"Rather than being a starter
on a small college football team,
give Michigan a try."
This was the advice given by
1955-56 Michigan All - America
end Ron Kramer to a high school
athlete named Craig Kirby.
Kirby, Michigan's starting right
end, received these instructions
during his senior year at Royal
Oak's Kimball High School. He
had received offers from several
small colleges and universities and
was trying to select the one best
for him.
"Ron (Kramer) told me that if
Michigan offered me a scholarship,
it meant that the Michigan coach-
es felt that I could play Big Ten
football. When they approached
me, I accepted."
Kirby was skeptic about his
chances because he had not gained,
all-state recognition like most Big
Ten athletes. He was instead on
only all-county and all-league
The lanky junior is presently
starting ahead of John Hender-
son, who started for the Wolver-
ines in the season's opener against
Air Force. "Kirby is starting
against Michigan State because'
of his performance in the Air
Force and Navy games,", added
end coach Jocko Nelson.
In the Air Force game, Kirby
came off the bench to replace
Henderson and snared two passes
for 22 yards. He started the Navy
game and finished the contest,
with four receptions for 46 yards.
Statistically, .the Junior end did
about the same in last year's Navy
game when he caught four passes
for 41 yards. The 1963 Navy game
was the first time in which Kirby
received a pass for the Wolverines
-- seeing little action against
Southern Methodist the week
Kirby 'played most of last sea-
son as offensive left end with

Henderson playing split right end.
This year the two are playing the
split end position with Steve
Smith and Ben Farabee at tight
"At tight end I had to block a
linebacker or turn in the defen-
sive end. As a split end, I do

m a i n l y down - field blocking,"
Kirby explained.
The play that gave Kirby the
most satisfaction occurred in last'
Saturday's Navy game. The play
was a key 27-yard run by Bob'
Timberlake in the second half.
Kirby delivered three key down-

field blocks that helped spring
Timberlake free -- each b1o c k'
knocking a Navy defender out of
the play.
"Ron (Kramer) gave me a lot
of help in down-field blocking and.
pass receiving. He worked with me
between my junior and senior.
years in high school and also a
little the last three. summers,"
Kirby explained.
Kramer Gives Tips
"I lack the speed of ends like
Henderson so I have to make up
for it in my pass patterns. Kramer
gave me many coaching tips in
this respect."
Looking back at how he became
interested in football, Kirby points
out the. fact that his father was
a high school football coach and
the most valuable player in the
NAIA as a senior at Alma College.
"I've been told, that when I
threw things at home as a little
kid, my father used to take the
discarded objects and put them in'
my left hand. My father, in this
way, made me left-handed. I think
that this has helped me in foot-
ball since I'm fairly well coordin-
ated in both hands and thus have
an easier time catching passes."
As far as this season goes, Kirby
feels that if Michigan plays like,

it did last week, it will go all the
way. "All the way" is clearly dis-
played .on the wall of his room
where ROSE BOWL is spelled out
in big letters made from 1964

Rowser is slowly returning to
the form that he° had before his
leg injury. Smith, who suffered
a hip bruise last Saturday, was
running plays but is nQt a definite
starter. "We think he'll start but
we're not sure. If he is not able
to, Ben Farabee will start at of-
fensive end," Nelson explained.

Four 'M' Athletes Go To T0o

A pair of American swimmers,
a quarter miler from Trinidad,
and a discus thrower from Aus-
tria have left the University this
semester to compete in the
Carl Robie, a sophomore from
Philadelphia, probably has the
best chance of the four to win a
gold medal. He qualified second
in the 200-meter butterfly, be-
hind Fred Schmidt of Indiana to
make the team. Robie, Schmidt
and Kevin Berry of Australia are
considered the favorites in the
race. All three could break the
world record. Kenjiro Matsumoto
might press this trio, swimming
in his native Japan.,
Fierce Competition
Bill Farley, a junior from Cali-
fornia, must swim against the
great Roy Saari in the 1500-meter
race which automatically limits
his chances for first to a consid-
erable degree. Saari swam this
race, the marathon for swimmers,
in a spectacular 16:57.9 to set a
world record.
Farley's past times put him 20
seconds behind Saari, and it is
most unlikely that he could beat
him, but he does have a chance'

for second. John Nelson, a high
school boy from Florida, Bob
Windle of Australia, and Farley
are roughly comparable on paper..
Aussie Murray Rose, probably
the only man in the world who
can press Saari in the event is
ineligible for the Olympics be-
cause he did not compete in the
national championships.
Dashing for Trinidad
In track and field., Kent Bern.
ard, running for Trinidad, could
win a medal in the 400-meter
dash and help bring one back for

Bernard, a senior and captain
of the Michigan team, is the-Big'
Ten champion in the quarter mile.
His best time of :45.7 for the 400
is .8 seconds off the world record
held jointly by Ulis Williams and
Mike Larrabee, both running for
the U.S. Michigan Coach Don'
Canham thinks he is capable of
breaking 45 which might be good
'enough to win. If Bernard is to
get a gold medal, he will also have
to beat his teammate Wendell
Motley of Yale who has run 45.3
this year.
Lack of Funds
The Trinidad team, has been
plagued by insufficient funds in
its quest for Olympic honors.
While the Americans were dili-I
gently practicing this summer1
Bernard and Motley were working
in New York to earn money. They
practiced whenever they could, but
their training was necessarily
spotty. Their times reflected the
sporadic practice as they did not
come down as much as many track
experts expected.
Bernard, Motley, Edwin Skin-
ner and Edwin Roberts make up
the 1600 relay team. Pickedkas a
good bet for second, if they upset
the favored United States it would
be an historic moment for the tiny
Caribbean nation of Trinidad.
In the discus throw, an affable
giant from Vienna, Ernst Soudek
goes against the world's best. His
throwl last year of 185 feet is a

END CRAIG KIRBY snares one of the four passes he caught
Saturday against Navy. Kirby learned some of his pass pattern
techniques from former Michigan All America, Green Bay Packer

Wolverines against the Midshipmen.



C. State Takes ACC Lead


In the Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence pre-season favorites Duke'
and North Carolina are faring
well, but North Carolina State,
picked to finish sixth or seventh,
ie on top.
Last year Duke, which showed
a weak defense, tied for second
with Clemson in the ACC. This
year they return with a potent
defense and three standout backs
in quarterback Scotty Glacken,
fullback Mike Curtis, and halfback
Bill Bracy. Both Curtis, who rush-,
ed for 500 yards as a sophomore,
and Bracy were out with injur-
ies last year. So far the -Blue'
Devils have tied South Carolina
9-9 and crushed Virginia 30-0 in
their first two games.
Strong in'Middle
UNC needs tackles and a quar-
terback, but they lack nothing
up the middle. Two hundred twen-
ty pound halfback Ken Willard,
who has led the ACC in rushing
for the past two years, and cen-
ter Chris Hanburger are both All-
America prospects. Willard was
outstanding in the Tarheel's 21-
15 victory over Michigan State.
And it seems that North Caro-
lina's hopes for a quarterback has
been answered in sophomore Dan-
ny Talbott who started for both
the MSU and N.C. State games.
Fullback Eddie Kesler, who aver-
aged 4.1 yards per carry last year,
is considered an excellent block-
er. He adds the necessary strength]
to make a powerful UNC backfield.
Along, with the MSU triumph the
Tarheels have beaten Wake For-

est 23-0 while losing
Carolina State 14-13.
Dark Horse

to North

The surprise has been the Wolf-
pack of North Carolina State. Last
year they tied for first in the
ACC along with North Carolina,
but this year they were predicted
to falter. In their first game they
defeated North Carolina 14-13 by
intercepting two Talbott passes
and turning them both into' touch-
downs. They beat Maryland by
the same score and Clemson fell
9-0. While experts are shocked,
they are reminded by the all
senior line that has end Ray Bar-
low and center Lou DeAngelis as
its standouts. This week's game
against Alabama, ranked third in

the nation, will definitely test the
Wolfpack's startling success.
Wake Forest has a new coach
in import Bill Tate from Illinois,
and so far the Deacons have won
two and lost one. They beat Vir-
ginia and Virginia Tech 31-21 and
38-21, respectively, and then lost
to North Carolina 23-0. Wake
Forest, tied for second in the
ACC now, was predicted to finish
last this year.
Returning Players,
Clemson's team situation al-
most parallels that of UNC ex-

cept that its backfield is not as
powerful as North Carolina's.
Clemson has fullback Pat Crain,
number two draft choice of the
Chicako Bears last year who gain-
ed 513 yards last season. It also
has Johnny Boyette, Paul Haynes,
Ted Bunton, Joe Blackwell and
Richard Cooper at tackle, center
and guard positions. These five
linemen and fullback Crain give
Coach Frank Howard most of 'his
hopes for a successful season. The
Tigers trounced Furman in their
first game 2810, but then lost to
N.C. State 9-0 and to Georgia
Tech 14-7.
Maryland, South Carolina, and
Virginia complete the ACC. It
looks like the only team that
has a chance of breaking.through
to the upper ranks is South Caro-
lina. In their game against Duke
Carolina's Jack McCathern kick-
ed a 30-yard field goal with 1:30
to play to tie the Blue Devils 9-9.
The Gamecocks also tied Georgia
7-7 and lost to Maryland 24-6.
Virginia and Maryland have
depth problems, so it should be
a year or rebuilding for them.

The Michigan-MSU clash will
give the Wolverines a better idea
of how good their ground game
really is. The running attack was,
particularly strong in opening vic-
tories over Air Force and Navy.
But neither team had the defen-
sive lineup which MSU and other,
league foes will throw up against
them from now on.
Second Half of
M-MSU Clash.
To Be Aired,
EAST LANSING (A')-Michigan
State Athletic Director Biggie
Munn announced yesterday that
at least the second half of the sell-
out Michigan - Michigan State
football game tomorrow will be
seen on television.
Munn reported that WMSB-TV,
the MSU station, will start tele-
vising the game on Channel 10
as soon as the World Series base-
ball game is over.
Previous commitments call for
the baseball game to be carried in
its entirety, Munn said.
The college television station
beams as far away as the Detroit
suburbs and also can be seen in
northern Indiana and Ohio. It
can be picked up as far away as
Mount Pleasant to the north and
can be seen in such major cities
as Lansing, Kalamazoo, Ann Ar-
bor, Jackson, Battle Creek, Pon-
tiac and Grand Rapids.

Michigan was reported in top
physical shape. MSU defensive
lineman Don Bierowicz and line-
backer Ron Goovert are still ailing.
Illinois, confronting reports that
Ohio State "is better than last
year," will have to watch the
Buckeyes' passing attack--a part
of the game almost nonexistent
in recent years there. The Illini
have been concentrating on pass
defense this week.
OSU tried 23 passes against
Indiana last Saturday. This was
eight more than last year's game

Boilermakers Rely on Soph Signal Ca


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last
In a series of nine articles evaluat-
ing the Big Teni teams.
Ron DiGravio is no longer call-
ing the signals for the Purdue;
Boilermakers, but if the first two
games are any indication, soph
quarterback Bob Griese may fill
the void.
In Purdue's opening game3
against Ohio University, Griese,
accounted for all the scoring in
the 17-0 victory. Griese ran for
two touchdowns, converted both;
extra points, and kicked for a 36-
yard field goal. Passing for 150
yards, Griese led the Boilermak-
ers toan offensive total of 357
yards. Last week against Notre
Dame, Griese was again effective
in the Boilermakers' 34-15 loss.
Junior end Bob Hadrick is the
top target for the Boilermakers
this year, as he was last fall.
Against Ohio, Hadrick snagged
seven passes and netted 83 yards.
Griese also has veteran receivers
in Harold Wells, Sam Longmire,
and Jim Faflik.
Tough Defense
The Boilermaker defense has
proved tough, despite the 34-15
loss to the Irish. Ohio managed
only 93 yards total, and never:

penetrated deeper than the 40.
Two of the Notre Dame scoresf
came on offensive lapses by Pur-
due, while the defense allowed twol
short touchdown passes and one.
30-yard scoring run. The defen-
sive line, however, thwarted the
Irish twice inside the 20.+
Jerry Shay, at 225, is tabbed
by Coach Jack Mollenkopf as hisa
line mainstay at left tackle. Bob-
by Hopp, Jim Garcia, Karl Sing-
er, and center-linebacker Larry
Kaminski round out the interior '
line, which Mollenkopf rates the
high point of this year's squad.
Five-foot-nine, 227-pound guard
Louis DeFilippo is also rates as a
top-flight performer both on of-
fense and defense.
Changes to Fullback
John Kuzniewski has shifted
to fullback, due to the gradua-
tion of three of last year's full-
backs. Kuzniewski led the Boil-
ermakers last year in rushing,
and, weighing in at 205, should
not cause any worry in the full-
back spot.
Four veteran halfbacks are re-
turning, including Gordon Teter,
Randy Minniear, Jim Morel, and
Tom Fuigate. Teter, a Junior run-
ning at right half, led Purdue
rushers against Ohio, picking up
82 yards in 19 tries, while catch-
ing two passes, good for 42 yards.


Sophomore Lou Sims has been'
given every opportunity to break
dinto the starting line-up, and
has consistently proved himself
the fastest man 'on the Boiler-i
Mollenkopf has used other sophs
extensively in the first two weeks,
trying to find the winning com-
bination. Two hundred thirty-
five pound tackle George Lewis
is fast for his size, and has been
playing well so far this fall. Two
ends have shown promise. Sophs

George Catavolos, at 6-1, and 223-
pound Dick Ruble appear ready to
play regularly. Doug Holcomb, Del
Wilber, Jr., and Jim Brush are
all pressing Griese for the quarter-
back post.
Prior to, their game here on
October 17, the Boilermakers meet
the Wisconsin Badgers this Sat-
urday. After the Wolverines, Pur-
due takes on Iowa, Illinois, Michi-
gan State and Minnesota, with
the season wrap-up in Lafayette
against Indiana.
