Staunch Defense Leads Wolverines
To First Win over Rivals Since '55

EAST LANSING-'Michigan's offensive machine sputtered,
coughed, and waited until late in the fourth quarter to roar
alive with two touchdowns that whipped Michigan State
here yesterday afternoon, 17-10, ending a nine-year winless
string against the Spartans.
It is also the first time since 1955 that the Wolverines
have won their first three games of the season.

EAST LANSING-The winning
touchdown pass yesterday which
halfback Rick Sygar rifled to end
John Henderson could have come
right from the Michigan State
strategy guide.
Spartan quarterback Dave Mc-
Cormick threw two similar passes
from the halfback position, com-
pleting one to end Eugene Wash-
ington for 43 yards. Nevertheless,
Spartan Coach Duffy Daugherty
lamented afterwards. "There play
fooled us completely. It was very
well executed."
Old Play
Elliott said the halfback-end
pass is an old Wolverine play, al-
though this is the first time it has
been used this fall.
Sygar took the pitchout from
quarterback Bob Timberlake, roll-
ed to his right, and hit Henderson,
who had broken in and then back
outside, right near the goal line.
Henderson sprinted into the end
zone standing up.
All-Around Star
"Sygar was really hot," Elliott
said. In addition to throwing the
winning touchdown pass and play-
ing most of the game at defensive
left halfback, he caught three
passes and scored the Wolverines
first touchdown in the fourth
Michigan was losing 10-3 early
in the quarter when Timberlake
started the team moving from the
Wolverine 27-yard line. Sygar
caught two passes for 19 yards
and ran around right end for nine
yards on his only rushing attempt.
Then he caught Timberlake's pass
for the TD when the Wolverines
had a third down on the Spartan
5-yard 'line.

In the game.
All or Nothingj
In a do-or-die effort midway
through the final quarter the
Michigan offense finally got roll-
ing after a series of fumbles and
a rugged Spartan defense almost
completely stymied the Blue at-
Timberlake keyed the Wolver-
ines to midfield with a pair of 11
and eight-yard passes to Sygar and
then let loose with a 29-yard bomb
to Henderson as Michigan creat-
ed its first major offensive threat.
Henderson was finally stopped
at the Michigan State 21, and
on the next play it was Sygar
again-this time getting the pitch
from Timberlake on the oft-used
option. {He dashed to the nine-
*yard ine before bieing forced out
of bounds.
Aerial A auk
Two plays later Timberlake hit
Sygar on the swing pass, and the
Niles, 0., sophomore neatly dodg-
ed a Spartan defender and jump-
ed into the end zone. The first
Wolverine touchdown of the day
pushed the score to 10-9, the
Spartans on top with just under
seven minutes to play.s
Michigan Coach Bump Elliott
had the choice-pass or run for
two points or stick with a one-
point kick that would tie it ,up.
Elliott took one look at the clock
and made up his mind-go for
"We went for two after that first
touchdown because we wanted to
win it right there and then."
With all of jammed Spartan Sta-
dium in a single held breath, Tim-
berlake rolled to the left on the
option and pitched to fullback
Mel Anthony going ,round the
end. Anthony cut in, twisted, dove
and ended up only millimeters
away from the goal stripe.
Taking Timberlake's kickoff, the
Spartans had only to hang on to
the football for six mifutes to
take the one-point Oictory.
But a fired up Michigan defense,
paced by big tackle Bill Yearby,:
stopped State in its tracks on j
three downs, and on the fourth
Dick Rindfuss returned the punt
to the Michigan State 41.
Carl Ward hit, left tackle for
four, Timberlake ran left end for
four more, and Anthony smashed
for two and a Michigan first
down at the Spartan 31-yard line.
There was 2:33 showing on the
clock when Timberlake pitched
to Sygar, who lofted Henderson
the winning pass clear in the MSU
secondary, and Henderson romp-
ed into the end zone.
Timberlake put on the finish-
ing touches, firing to end Steve'
Smith for a two-point conversion.
But Earlier...
Earlier in the game it was a
different story. Michigan receiv-

mediately fumbled the football. "

Kidnaping Motives Mulled

New Local Plant Settlements Spur
'For Early End to Nationwide Auto


American officials are uncertain
whether the kidnaping . of a U.S.
Air Force colonel in Venezuela is
merely a local act of terrorism or
is the central move in a Com-
munist plot of fantastic propor-
The critical question in the plot
theory is whether - the kidnaping'
was masterminded by Red lead-
ers in North Viet Nam or Com-
munist China or whether it was:
initiated by the Faln, the pro-
Castro terrorist organization, for
home-grown Venezuelan purposes.
Authorities here expressed re-
luctance to accept the theory of
an elaborate kidnap strategy,
spanning half the world, being
developed by Communist chief-
tains to block -the execution of
Nguyen Van Troi, an alleged Red
terrorist in South Viet Nam.

Tempo Gains
UAW President W a1t e r P.
Reuther predicted earlier that the
tempo of local bargaining prob-
ably would pick up during the
weekend,. but many observers still
believe the strike will continue
for at least another week. It be-
gan Sept. 25.
Layoffs of more than 32,000
workers in the United States and
Canada have brought the total
number idled by the strike to
nearly 300,000. GM of Canada's
entire production reportedly has
been shut down because of a lack
of parts normally shipped in from
the U.S.
When the UAW ordered some
260,000 workers off the assembly
lines, halting the flow of GM's
new 1965 models, it told union
members at most parts and accec-
sories plants to stay on the job
because .a portion of their output
is sold to GM's chief competitors-

the young terrorist is executed in

The over-all purpose of Vene-
zuelan terrorism up to last De-
cember, in fact, was to undermine
and topple the government of Pres-
dent. Romulo Betancourt. The
Faln suffered a severe defeats when
Betancourt succeeded in carrying
through orderly elections in De-
cember. Further terrorist efforts
ailed to stop the inauguration of
President Raul Leoni two months
Beset by -defeat, the Faln lead-
ership was reported split between
hose who favored a more moder-
ate course of action than in the
ast and those who espoused ex-
reme measures.
Gain Notoriety
Some officials said that the
Faln leaders themselves, aware of
he arrest months ago of the 17-
year-old terrorist in South Viet
Nam, may have hit upon a link
between his case and the Smolen
eizure as a spectacular means of
attracting world attention.
Furthermore, these officials said,
f the Reds knew that much about
he arrest of Nguyen Van Troi
hey might also know that his ex-

government wouldt make a final
decision in the case of Nguyen
Van Troi pending the outcome of
widespread efforts under way; in
Venezuela to find the American
officer who was seized by pro-Cas-
tro terrorists Friday.
Officials said that with all the
problems the Faln leaders have it
seems unlikely that they would
have spent much time following
events in South Viet Nam in such
detail that they would have
thought of the Smolen-Troi hos-
tage deal on their own.
From this point of view a more
logical explanation, it was said,
is that Communist strategists in
Hanoi or Peking figured out the
maneuver as ohe which could em-
barrass both the U.S. and South
Vietnamese governments and dem-
onstrate a power for coordinated
Red action over a very wide area.

Prop osa Examined To Aid'
Taxpayers in High Brackets
WASHINGTON (P)-Treasury officials are paying increasing at-
tention to a proposal that would give a bonus to the taxpayer who.
doesn't use any of the legal loopholes.
The plan, as originally advanced by Sen. Russell Long (D-Ala),
would provide relief for high bracket taxpayers who do not claim
any of the many special categories which offer tax breaks.,
The latest version of the plan retains the optional method of
figuring income tax-which has special interest for high bracket
income taxpayers-and it adds some automatic tax-saving features
for middle and low income taxpayers. Even under the reduced rates
- "which will apply in 1965, a married
man who earns $100,000 a year
and takes the standard deduction
would pay a rate of 60 per cent on
part of his income and his total
-!n tax would be $42,000. Under the
