Dumping

By LLOYD GRAFF
"I was considering coming to
Michigan until I heard that they
got Bob Timberlake. I wanted to
steer clear of anywhere he went."
These are the words of Tom
Myers, Northwestern's highly ac-
claimed senior quarterback who
will lead the Wildcats this Satur-
day against the Wolverines.
Myers was a high school star in
Troy, Ohio, a football-mad town
in the central part of the state.
Troy is only 75 miles from Frank
lin, Ohio where Timberlake de-
velopedasra prep football player.
Each quarterback knew of the
other by reputation, but they
never played against each other.
When their senior season's end-
ed college football coaches de-
KBoxer Tells
Of JWintnn
With Injury
PHILADELPHIA P) -- Heavy-
weight Joe Frazier, who won the
Olympic gold medal at Tokyo, re-
vealed yesterday he won the cham-
pionship bout fighting with a
broken left hand.
Frazier, in a local hospital re-
ceiving treatment for the injury,
said he broke it in the second
round of the semifinal.
Frazier, a Philadelphia slaught-
erhouse worker, gained a 3-2 de-
cision over Hans Huber in last
Friday's final. Frazier didn't favor
the hand in the bout, however, as
reports of the fight said. He re-
sorted to numerous left hooks
throughout.
Broken on Russian
"It happened when I hit the
Russian in the second round of
the semifinal," Frazier said from
his hospital bed. He won the semi-
final by knocking out Vadim
Yemelyanov in the second round.
Frazier was asked why he fought
another bout, knowing his hand1
was broken. "Well, I didn't know
the hand was that bad at first,"
he said. "I couldn't get a grip like;
I wanted to, so I started to soak
it.
"It began to feel a little better
and I felt I could make it through
one more fight.
"Besides I'd gone all that way.
I couldn't let one hand pull me
back."
No X-Rays
Frazier said he went to a team
doctor and spoke about the sore-
ness, but then insisted he was not
hurt badly when the doctor sug-
gested X-rays. "He didn't know
how bad the hand was," said
Frazier.
Asked how it felt in the final I
bout, he said, "I began to feel it
every once in a while. I was throw-
ing a lot of lefts but he wouldn't
stand up," he said meaning he
didn't connect solidly with many
of them.
Ironically, Frazier made the
Olympic team as a substitute for
Buster Mathes, who broke a hand
while sparring with Frazier.
Frazier said he has not yet de-
cided if he will fight professionally.

scended on them like students to
a "gut" course. Jack Fouts, then
a Michigan offensive line coach,
tried to recruit Myers and even'
brought him to Ann Arbor to
visit. But in the end he decided
upon Northwestern "partly be-
cause being close to Chicago would
be an advantage in pursuing a
business education and career,"
and also because Timberlake would
have been plenty of competition
for the quarterback spot.
Myers returned to Ann Arbor
last year, but the Wolverines were
certainly not as cordialhas when
they tried to recruit him. The
Wolverines humbled the Wildcats
27-6 and harassed Mr. Myers con-
tinually, smearing him for a net
rushing loss of 44 yards. "Last
year's Michigan game is one of
the worst ones I've ever been in,"
says Myers recalling the contest.
He's hoping to avenge the defeat
Saturday.
Loves To Pass
Myers loves to throw the ball
and his coach Alex Agase loves
him to also. He holds 13 North-
western passing records, eclipsing
everything that Otto Graham ever
did in Evanston. In his first var-
sity game he completed fifteen
consecutive passes in perhaps the
greatest debut of any quarterback
in Big Ten history. That was the
year when Tom Myers to Paul
Flatley was the most feared pass-
ing combination in the nation.
But Flatley is long gone and
Myers must now throw to an
assortment of inexperienced ends.
This accounts in part for Myers'
relatively low pass completion ra-
tio of 54 of 127 this year. In his
first two seasons he had an aver-
age of 55 per cent.
No Special Receiver
"I have no one special receiver
this year. Dick Smith and Mike
Donaldson are good young foot-
ball players. Caz Banaczek is a
very fine tight end," says Myers.
He has hit Banaczek 21 times so
far this season.
Myers admits that he is dis-
appointed with his performance so
far and with Northwestern's play
as a team. "But we all still think
we are capable of beating any
team on a given day We haven't
quit, and we aren't going to."
"I guess I'm something like
Staubach this year. Neither of
us is performing to his ability yet.
Maybe this Saturday I'll begin to."

which Michigan won 27-6. The ominous figure of Bill Yearby looms in front of Myers. The Wildcat

PRACTICE NOTES
Michigan practiced into dusk
yesterday on running and passing
plays to be used Saturday. Bob
Mielke returned to the gridiron
after sitting out two days with an
ankle injury.
After five games, Tom Cecchini
leads the Wolverine defenders
with 36 tackles and 18 assists.

You're looking at the intelligent product of one week's
work. (Some might be in your campus library.) They're
technical bulletins written by some very talented scientists
and engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. JPL people
write over 500 such documents each year. Documents with

planets is a pretty head-y assignment. And it takes a lot of
bright people to make it happen. Where do these bright
people come from? Better colleges and universities around
the country. Yours, for example. Why not sign up for an
interview with a JPL man? Besides working at the most
