By JERRY KALISH
With the season opener against7
Nebraska only a scant week away,
Coach Bump Elliott plans to use
his last scrimmage today to sur-
vey total team strength. .
"We're not going to emphasize{
any one area but we're going to3
concentrate on playing the whole
football game to get ready for
next week," said the Michigan
mentor.
In the closed scrimmage in the
stadium, Elliott will have his first
and second units going up against
the rest of the squad. A few per-
sonnel changes this week which
Elliott calls "nothing drastic," saw
Harvey Chapman, junior halfback,
running with the first team. If
Chapman continues his present
status as a starter, he will join
captain Bob Brown as the only two
varsity athletes being regulars in
two sports. Brown was a forward
on the basketball team last win-
ter, while Chapman played third
base for the Wolverines' NCAA
championship baseball squad.
Anthony Ailing
In another switch, fullback Bill
Dodd replaced the still ailing
sophomore Mel Anthony. Anthony
was injured in last week's scrim-
mage and worked out yesterday,
but had to leave practice early be-
cause of his sprained ankle.
Frosty Evashevski also was out
of action with a recurrence of a
back injury that has given him
trouble in the past. However, El-
liott thinks that both Anthony and
Evashevski will be ready by kick-
off time next week.
Another hopeful note has been
the rapid improvement of end
Jim Ward converted from fullback
this fall. The switch was made to
add depth to the end position
which was stricken by the losses
of sophomore John Henderson and
place kicking specialist Doug
Bickle.
Practice Notes

PINEHURST, N.C. (A) - Labron
Harris, Jr., a fuzz-cheeked mathe-
matics wizard from Oklahoma,
counted ten and out over heavily
favored Billy Joe Patton yesterday
and swept into the finals of the
62nd U.S. Amateur Golf Cham-
pionship against insurance sales-
man Downing Gray of Pensacola,
Fla.
The 20-year-old Harris, 6-3, 185-
pounder power-hitting son of the
Oklahoma State golf coach, fought
off one Patton charge after an-
other and scored a 3 and 1 victory
over the 40-year-old Morganton,
N.C., lumberman who was making
his 13th try for the national cham-
pionship. He's never won.
Blows Lead
Harris built a three-hole lead
over Patton, the Tar Heel favorite,

on the morning 18 holes. But he
blew it all at the start of the aft-
ernoon round and then fought
back brilliantlyafter Patton once
again had challenged him on the
pressure-packed closing holes.
Two down after 30 holes, Patton
reached into his golf bag, plucked
out his battered old white hat he
had neglected all day, slapped it
on his head, and knocked in a bir-
die and a par on the next two to
even the match. With only four
holes left in the scheduled 36-hole
test, it looked as if Patton had
finally unnerved the youngster.
Comes Back
But young Harris promptly won
two holes with a par 3 and a bir-
die 4 when Billy Joe hit into the
trees - where he spent most of

NAME THE PLATOONS

the morning round - and put
away the graying North Carolinian
with a par 3 on the thirty-fifth
hole.
In the other bracket, Gray, a
weekend golfer, who says without
conceit "I can play with the best
of them when I play often
enough," took a 3 up lead on the
25-year-old Coody after the morn-
ing round, built it quickly to seven
and then, as he put it:
"Like a fool, I figured - well,
that was it. I relaxed and before
I knew it I had a match on my
hands again. Maybe someday I'll
learn."
Three Straight
Coody, a strapping 6-1, 190-
pounder won three straight holes
-after a pair of birdies and a par
-and suddenly it was down to a
four-hole deficit. Gray won the
30th to give five up again, but back
came the Lieutenant who drove so
poorly all day he said "I haven't
played golf like this in years."
Coody won the next two holes
to cut the margin to three, but
there his rally - and Gray's eas-
ing up - ended and Gray finally
won 3 and 2.

We don't have many entries in
yet.
So far the "Name the Platoon"
contest has drawn enough entries
to warrant putting off the an-
nouncement of the winners until
next fall because as yet we can-
not reach down far enough into
that deep keg to reach the three
entries already submitted.
Come on. It isn't that hard, is it?

The Sports Staff will pass final
judgement on the keg - er, names
submitted. Free passes to - the
Michigan Theater go to the win-
ners. And don't forget, we have
two divisions in the contest. The
first stringers are the nameless
two-way squad. The second string-
ers go mainly on offense. Hurry.
The deadline is next Friday night
at the sports desk of The Daily.

In an attempt to strengthen his
kicking crew, Elliott concentrated
yesterday afternoon on kickoff,;
extra point, and punting drills with
a minimum of contact.
Absent from practice was fresh-
man coach Don Dufek who left
for Lincoln, Nebraska to scout the
Cornhuskers in their opener today
with South Dakota.
Fourth Race of
America's Cup
Slated Today
NEWPORT, R. I. (P)-The larg-
est spectator fleet ever to follow a
yacht race -.a flotilla of 3,000
vessels with a cargo of 50,000 fans,
including President and Mrs. Ken-
nedy -- is expected to swarm into
the Atlantic today for the fourth
America's Cup clash between
Weatherly and Gretel.
"It could be a madhouse," a U.S.
Coast Guard spokesman said yes-
terday. "If it's a good day, you'll
be able to walk across the bay
without getting your shoes wet."
To meet the situation, the
Coast Guard has brought down ad-
ditional boats from Boston to re-
inforce its cutter patrol and has
warned of fines up to $500 for
persons violating the race area.
The start of last Saturday's race
was delayed an hour by unruly
spectator craft.
Discouraging from the Austral-
ian standpoint was the weather
forecast which calls for gently,
variable winds in the morning fol-
Vorsicht!
If you are between the ages
of freshman and junior, be-
ware! The Daily sports staff
wants you to write for them.
Anyone interested in sports is
vulnerable. If you have no pre-
vious experience, all the better.
We prefer that you learn all
your bad habits here. We hope
to catch all of you here at the
second floor of The Daily this
Sunday at 5 p.m.
lowed by southwesterly breezes in
the afternoon freshening to 12 to
18 miles an hour.
These are moderate airs. The
Australians, beaten in two of the
first three races in the best-of-
seven series, need heavy weather-
winds to 20 knots and above.
The fourth race, ilke the second
won by Gretel by a margin of 47
seconds, will be over a 24-mile tri-
angular course - the first eight
miles upwind, followed by two
reaches of eight miles each. Start-
ing time is 11:10 a.m. EST.

Maury Wills, the great Dodger
shortstop, fell one short of Ty
Cobb's Major League record of
96 stolen bases tonight as he
stole one base to jack his total
to 95 after 154 games.
Ford Frick, Baseball Commis-
sioner, ruled yesterday that Wills
would have to break Cobb's record
in 154 games if the record was to
go down without an asterisk in
the record books.
Wills still has eight games in
which to break the record, in
which case his mark will go down
in the same category as Roger
Maris' record-breaking 61 home
runs last season.

PORTLAND, Ore. (/P) - Jack
Nicklaus survived a two-stroke
penalty and a course-record per-
formance by Autsralian Bruce
Crampton today. He held a nar-
row one-stroke lead at the half-

wey point of the $25,000 Portland
Open Golf Tournament.1
His two-day total of 133 was
11 strokes below par on the 36-
36-72 Columbia-Edgewater Coun-
try Club course.-
Nicklaus carded a 5-below par
67 today but tournament super-
visor Joe Black penalized him two
strokesfor slow play.
It was the first time such a
penalty has been called on the
pro tour in several years.
BALTIMORE WP) - The Balti-
more Colts put defensive halfback
Lenny Lyles on waivers with the
notation "injured" today and
hoped no other National Football
League team will claim him.
Lyles, a five-year veteran in
his second tour with the Colts,
suffered sprained and possible torn
ligaments in his right knee in
last Sunday's game against the
Los Angeles Rams.
