"Nunley has improved every
game," Hollway says, "and he'll
get better, too. He has a real
bright future because he's big,
strong and agile. When he hits,
the whole Stadium rocks."
The defensive line, composed of
captain Jim Conley, Bill Laskey,
Bill Yearby, Arnie Simkus, John
Lanz and Bill Keating are the
bulwark of the league-leading de-
fense.
"Conley is a great leader," Holl-
way said yesterday at the very
moment that the captain was
speaking to a meeting of the team
behind closed doors and without
any coaches present.
"Jim's a tough, hard-going and
confident player and has done a
fine job," Hollway says.
The pride of the Michigan fans,
tackle Yearby, whose bone-
crunching tackles delight the fans
each week, is Conley's partner on
the left side of the line. Yearby is
only a junior, but Hollway calls
the 6'3", 230-pounder "about the
best defensive tackle I've seen
since I've been coaching here."
The coach calls Yearby a "re-
lentless hard-workier who takes
pride in playing well .in a quiet,
workmanlike fashion."n
Yearby's neighbor on the line
is senior Yanz, whom Hollway
called a question mark at the start
of the season, but lauded for his
performance thus far. "John has
done a tremendous job. He had
really great days against Navy
and Michigan State."
Hollway, like Elliott, his for-
mer teammate on the 1947 Rose
Bowl team, is quick to point to
the defensive unit's value this sea-
son. There's an old expression
that the best defense is a strong
offense, but Hollway and Elliott
are both thankful that the Wol-
verines' -defense. has proven such
a fine complement to the nation's
third best offensive attack.

The plan, which was developed
at last Friday's meeting of the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics, is in effect for the cur-
rent basketball season and until
such time as the University Events

number of season tickets will bej
available to students and mem-

By RICH GOODMAN
Seventeen Michigan seniors will
play their last home game against
Illinois this Saturday, and they
have done more than their share
for the Maize and Blue.
Head Coach Bump Elliott is
profuse with praise for his sen-
iors: "They've shown their leader-
ship in connection with other
players . . . and just on their own.
Their individual spirit and playing
ability has been a tremendous
help."
There are many facets to this
year's group of departing backs
and linemen. As sophomores they
played on a team that won only
two games, and last year their
team won only three. But so far
this season the Wolverines have
won five games and lost only one
with many starting seniors who
did not play much last year-
much less start. John Yanz was
injured for most of last season,
but he is starting now at de-
fensive tackle and will leave a
sustaining memory of an inspired
game against Navy.
Standout Linemen
Brian Patchen took over for in-
jured Tom Cecchini last year and
now starts at offensive center. El-
liott praises Patchen for doing
"an outstanding job."
Dave Butler saw only brief ac-
tion last year but now starts of-
fensively at guard, and his 225
pounds and hard play have
boosted Michigan's line.
Ben Farabee played only 46
minutes last season, but has been
alternating at tight end with Steve
Smith. He has caught three
passes for 46 yards.
Arnold Simkus commands a
defensive tackle spot, but how
many remember him from last
year?
Elliott comments on this: "It
takes time for a lineman to de-
velop . . . they do have to fight
their way up, and progress for
them is difficult."
Captain Conley
Captain James Conley has prov-
himself a workhorse for this year's

winning team. The memories that
ie leaves will not only include his
ardent defensive play at end, but
also that familiar scene of the
entire team crowding around him
shouting and pushing, just before
the start of each game.
In the locker room before yes-
terday's practice, Conley, show-
ing the wide gap where his front
teeth once were, sat with his
sweat clothes in his lap and talked
about his senior teammates. He
was calm and serious and for a few
minutes did not seem to know
what to say. But he began. "You
know, we've just got to keep go-
ing . . . We just keep thinking
that Rich Hahn won't get to play
again unless we go to Pasadena"
And it was difficult to ask him
anything else. His statement seem-
ed to perfectly express his respect
for the men he has been playing
with for the last three years.
Timberlake Speaks
Bob Timberlake was a few feet
away getting dressed for the com-
ing practice. He spoke as he went
into the training room to get
taped:
"Leadership is shared by the
whole team . . ." He talked about
the seniors as being an intergral
part of the whole. He started to
elaborate on a few individuals but
stopped:
"If we make it this year, some-
one should make All-America. I
think he should Te our captain,
Jim Conley. He's one of the fin-
est leaders I've ever seen."
What about Michigan's full-
back Mel Anthony who was in-
jured his sophomore year? Last
year Anthony came back to score
five touchdowns and compile a
3.82 rushing average. Timberlake
responded quickly:
"I think he does some things
better than any other player in
the country . . . like what we call
'making a great move in the
hole'." Timberlake, like the rest
of the seniors, doesn't want to
leave, "I'll be very sad when it's
all over. It's really been great
here . .
Another outstanding senior is

end John Henderson who has
caught 18 passes for 286 yards
and two touchdowns this season.
Timberlake himself leads Michi-
gan in scoring this year and is
second in rushing. Rich Hahn was
starting as a defensive guard un-
til his knee injury took him off
the player roster. John Marcumj
played 228 minutes last year and
starts at offensive right guard.
What about Frosty? Frosty Eva-
shevski's name has been repeated-
ly mentioned with football for the I
last five years. He started for a
while last year, and he usually
comes through with several im-
portant plays a year. Of course
there's Dick Rindfuss who played
more than any other Wolverine
last year. Rindfuss played both{
defensively and offensively last
year, and this year has done the
same, concentrating mostly at his
familiar defensive halfback spot.
Bill Laskey is considered by
many to be one of the toughest
defensive ends in the Big Ten,
and this year has proven this
statement to be more than just a
consideration. Gerry Mader, the
B'3", 220-pound tackle from Chi-
cago has played quite often on
lefense this year. William Muir
and Nick Frontczak complete this
impressive list of seniors.
Bump Elliott does not like to
think about the graduation of
these men: "You can't lose men
like these and not feel it. A big
gap in our team will have to be
filled . .."

Boeing's world leadership in the jet transport field is an indication of the
calibre of people you'd work with at Boeing. The forward-striding attitude re-
sponsible for this leadership has, since 1916, provided a steady succession
of pioneering achievements: first twin-engine, retractable-gear, low-wing,
all-metal airliner; first four-engine, pressurized airliner; first modern, high-
nerformance bomber: first large swept-wing. multi-iet bomber: and. of

physics, nuclear and plasma physics, terrestrial and space flight sciences
and allied human factors.
Engineers and scientists at Boeing work in small groups, under supervisors
picked for ability to -inspire and promote the ideas of their associates.
Individual initiative and ability get plenty of exposure that way. (The com-
pany encourages graduate studies at leading colleges and universities near
Boeing installations.) Boeing is an equal opportunity employer.
