Badgers Play Passing Game

NCAA Lifts Kansas Ban
For Giving Auto to Wilt

RECORD: 4-1.
RATING: Great passing team
with running threat.
Woe is Michigan.
a s "
Jack Fouts, Michigan's interior
line coach, is normally not a par-
ticularly pessimistic man, and this
week is no exception. The only
catch is that now it's Wisconsin
he's optimistic about.
"It's the best Wisconsin team
I've ever seen," marveled Fouts.
"This is the fourth year I've scout-
ed them and I'd say this is better
than their championship team of
"They're playing better defense
than I've ever seen a Wisconsin
team play, and of course they've
always been a great passing team."
Scrub Replaces Miller
Last year it was the Ron Miller
to Pat Richter passing combina-
tion which established the Badgers
as big offensive threat. This year
Miller is playing quarterback with
the Los Angeles Rams, but Fouts
calls his successor, Ron Vander-
Kelen, even better in some depart-
ments that Miller was.
VanderKelen, a senior who had
seen less than two minutes of var-
sity action before this season, was
running just behind Northwest-
ern's Tom Myers for conference
passing honors before Ohio State
held him to seven completions in
22 attempts in,last Saturday's 14-7
win over the Badgers.
"He was rushed harder than he
ever had been before," explained
Fouts. "Besides that, Ohio State,
did a great job of covering his re-,
More Versatile
Fouts called VanderKelen a bet-
ter runner than Miller was, and a7
better long passer, too.
"He can throw all over the placel
-short ones or the 'bomb.' Wis-
consin is primarily a passing team
and I'd say they throw about 50
per cent of the time.";
It's the difference in the receiv-;
ers this year that worries Fouts.
The Badgers have more going for
them than just Richter.
"They pass to everybody onj
the team--the ends, the fullback,
the left half, the right half . -,
Fouts continued, as if he were
wishing for a Wisconsin penalty,
for an ineligible receiver down-
Deserve More Pay
To exploit their passing game,
the Badgers utilize a "pro-type"
offense with a flanker back and
usually two split ends. "It's just
like the Lions," Fouts shuddered.l
Besides Richter, who starts at
right end, VanderKelen's favorite1

targets are Ron Carlson, 6'3" left
end; Elmars Ezerins, 6'3" replace-
ment for Richter; and Ron (Pin-
to) Smith, 6'1" right halfback.
"Smith is one of the finest half-
backs in the conference," Fouts
commented. "He's rangy (at 175
lbs.) and has great speed." Be-
sides being a top receiver, Smith

the ball so much this year, the 6'6"
All-America still has 13 receptions
in five games. His string of at least
one touchdown a game was broken
at eight last Saturday thanks to
a spectacular job of shadowing by
Buckeye halfback Paul Warfield.
"He (Richter) was partially
double-teamed," Fouts explained.
"The fullback always played on
the one side and dropped back a
lot to help cover, but Warfield did
a really good job on him."
Fouts isn't quite sure how the
Michigan defensive secondary will
handle the big fellow this Satur-
day. "Let's just say we'll have to
put one man on him and have a
lot of people conscious of him," he
added with a grin.
And he didn't mean people in
the stands, either.

NEW YORK (P')-The Council of
the National Collegiate Athletic
Association terminated last night
the probationary periods of Kan-

basketball star Wilt Chamberlain

on one year's probation for viola-
tions of basketball tryout and re-
cruiting rules.

Walter Byers, executive director
of theNCAA, said the 18-member
council-now in the second day
of its annual three-day fall meet-

eration additional reports from the
Infractions Committee.
In other action, the council en-
dorsed three proposals to be pre-,
sented to the annual NCAA con-
vention in Los Angeles in January.
These included a revision in one
of the by-law requirements con-s
cerning post-season basketball
games; a proposal for additional
representation from college divi-

rules and tournament committees
for newly created NCAA small col-

The day of judgment draws clos-
er in intramural football.
On Tuesday, November 6, less
than a week from today, six grid
contests down at Wines Field will
decide the champions of each of
the six I-M divisions. The semi-
finals leading up to those games
began two days ago and will con-
tinue throughout this week.
In the semifinals of the social
fraternity "A" circuit, Psi Upsilon
takes on Sigma Alpha Epsilon to-
night, while Sigma Alpha Mu goes
after Zeta Beta Tau this Sunday.
In "B" competition, this after-
noon's semifinal contests pair up
Phi Delta Theta with Alpha Tau
Omega and Sigma Alpha Epsilon
with Beta Theta Pi.
Semifinals were completed in
the residence hall playoffs Mon-
*day night. The two winners of the
"A" games, Scott House and Michi-
gan House, will clash next Tues-
day, as will the "B" victors, Win-
chell and Gomberg.
Both the "A" finalists took their
last playoff games by the same
margin, Scott endging Gomberg,
6-0, and Michigan outpointing
Winchell, 12-6. Winchell "B" top-
ped Taylor "B" 20-6, and Goniberg
"B" nipped Anderson "B" 8-0 to
earn the right to play each other.
In independent action this week,
the semifinal game between the

Blockbusters and the Misfits was
forfeited to the former when the
latter failed to dhow up. The
Blockbusters, then, will tangle with
the winner of the Evans Scholars-
Medics game to decide the cham-
pion in this division.
The first place semifinals in the
sixth and last I-M league, the
professional fraternities, will be
played tomorrow. The Draft Dodg-
ers will be up against Phi Delta
Phi in one of the contests, but the
participants in the other are still
in doubt. Phi Alpha Kappa is in
for sure, but Nu Sigma Nu is be-
ing challenged for its right to play
by Psi Omega. The charge is that
Nu Sigma Nu used an illegal play-

the regular season, and if upheld,

Intramural Activities Earl Riskey
announced yesterday that the all-
campus handball singles tourna-

Riskey also said that the social
fraternity volleyball playoffs will
begin next week, with the playoffs
for the other three divisions to
start in succeeding weeks.

is rated by Fouts as Wisconsin's
top running threat, along with left
half 'Louie Holland, who has been
hampered by injuries.
Speed To Burn
Holland, a 177-lb. sprinter on
Wisconsin's indoor champion track
team, is one of the fastest men on
a fast team, but Smith, only a
sophomore, nearly beat him in a
footrace last week.
And in case either of them gets
cocky about his speed, the Badg-
ers have 155-lb. defensive back
Billy Smith, the Big Ten indoor 60-
yd. dash champion.
Fouts rates the Wisconsin run-
ning game as a big threat despite
the fact that the Badgers have
no one among the conference rush-
in gleaders. Besides the fast half-
backs, they have three good full-
backs-Jim Purnell, Ralph Kurek
and Merritt Norvell. And all oper-
ate behind a big line averaging
220 lbs. a man!
But despite their all-around of-
fensive power, the Badgers' attack
still revolves primarily around
Richter, holder of every Wisconsin
pass-catching record in the book.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Last Sunday, a
member of The Daily Sports Staff
went skydiving. This is the account
of his experiences.)
Tired of watching Lion games
on television on Sundays and need
some excitement? Then try sport
I did last Sunday, and the jump
took less time than the Liston-
Patterson fight. Dave Myers, a
med student, is the person re-'
sponsible for me trying America's
newest sport. Dave is behind the
recent surge of interest in par-
achuting on campus, and in the'
process of making the rounds of
all the housing units he came
over to the fraternity one night
to talk to us.
Representing the Midwest Sport
Parachuting Center in Howell, he
described interesting aspects of
the sport. He told us he was a
licensed jumpmaster. Other mem-
bers of another house had already
jumped, and he asked if anyone
wanted to sign up. Hesitatingly, I
did so.
Chicken? No!
I woke up the morning of the
jump thinking how unreal the
whole idea was. The only thing
real was the growing apprehen-
sion. Most of the fear was not of
getting hurt so much as it was of
doing something which I thought
rather irrational.
About 9:30 Dave came over and
prodded me out of bed. After a
hearty breakfast of one glass of
orange juice-I was afraid of what
might happen to a larger breakfast
-I finally made it to the car with
the others who were going to jump
On to Howell. After about a 40
minute drive Dave pulled off the
highway near two buildings before
a huge clearing. We were urged
out of the car, and introduced to
Bob McTaggart, who was in charge
of the center.
Safety First
He talked to us about sport
parachuting in general. He em-
phasized the importance of obey-
ing orders to insure safety. Be-
sides running this operation, Bob
is the area safety officer and, from
informed people, one of the best
sport parachutists in the state.
Quite a Crowd
Two things at this time sur-
prised me. First, was the bigness
of the operation. I did not expect
so many people to be interested
in parachuting, but at 11:00 the
area was quite crowded with peo-
ple who came to jump and many
who just came to watch.
We were issued our equipment,
jump boots (similar to ski shoes),
back pack, a reserve chute, over-
all, and a crash helmet.
About an hour and a half of
instruction taught us how to land,
important safety measures and
technique. Then we sat down to
wait for the plane. Before any
student parachuters can jump,
Bob quizzes them to see if they

have learned their lessons proper-
The 45 minute wait for the
plane was the most trying time
of the whole experience. The pilot
was flying in from Flint and the
sitting around doing nothing but
thinking about what we were to
do was trying. But it finally
As I got in Dave attached the
static line, which would auto-
matically open my chute, to my
back pack. The plane took off and
started to climb. The brief plane
ride with the open door was to me
the most unnerving part; of the
Hey-Look Down There
As we approached 2500 ft., the
exit altitude, Dave who was sit-
ting behind me, dropped a wind
streamer and saw where it landed.
The streamer is equivalent to a
160 lb. man and he could tell the
direction of the wind so the pilot
would know where we should exit
to hit the target area.
Suddenly the pilot cut the en-
gine, and I felt Dave's hand on
my shoulder and he told me to
swing my feet out the door. I put
my left foot on the bar outside
the door, swung out the door and
grabbed part of the wing tightly.
"O.K.," he yelled, and I jumped
and arched as taught. I was only
in free fall for five seconds be-
fore the static line opened the
chute, but during the jump I had
no conception of time.
There was a slight tug as the
chute opened, and it seemed like
I had stopped. There was an un-
earthly quiet. I have never ex-
perienced the feeling of loneliness
as I did then.
Passing over a highway I
thought I was to land there; pass-
ing over the target, a small piece
of silk, I thought I might land

on it. Then I started to overshoot
the target and the loudspeaker
talking me down told me to change
direction by pulling down on the
toggles which are attached to the
As I got closer to the ground,
I no longer had the feeling of
falling, but rather the thought
that the ground was rushing up
to meet me. As I neared the ground
I tried to use the landing tech-
nique I was drilled on by jumping
from a three foot platform, but
I landed in a heap. However, I
wasn't hurt.
Some of the 'chuters came out to
congratulate me. I was now a

Toughies are the order for this week's grid picks. Any would-be
recipient of two free tickets to the Michigan Theatre and a free sub-
scription to the Football News will have such obstacles in his path as
the Notre Dame-Navy battle, the Georgia Tech-Duke contest, or the
Auburn-Florida match.
In addition to the winners of 19 games across the country, the
contest winner will have to submit his estimate of Saturday's Michi-
gan-Wisconsin affair in Ann Arbor.
Take a guess on the toughies.
