At present Rowser is halfback

Yearby was converted from end

fall to hold down a first string
berth.
Extended Allegory
The similarity between the pair
does not stop there. Rowser has
been out of much of this fall's
drills because of a shoulder injury.
He was not able to get back into
full contact work until this week.
So what's good enough for Mutt
is good enough for Jeff, or bad

jured his shoulder throwing a
block. The strong tackle does not
expect to be out long. Michigan
football fans hope that neither
are out very long for the rest of
the season.

Practice Notes
Coach Bump Elliott broke yes-
terday's practice into three seg-
ments. For the first part of the
session the gridders worked on
polishing individual skills. This
was followed by a spirited scrim-
mage in which Mel Anthony, new-
ly demoted fullback, suffered a
slight ankle injury.
Practice was ended with a brief
workout on downfield coverage on
punts, with the punters taking
advantage of the high winds to
boom out 50 yarders.

A New Look
There will be somewhat of a new look in Michigan's Intramural
sports program this year.
I-M Director Earl Riskey has announced several changes and ad-
ditions tothe program that is beginning its 41st year.
The most important change will affect the social fraternities: a
new rule instigated this fall will prevent any fraternity from using
pledges. Another new rule, aimed at aiding the smaller fraternities,
will allow houses with 20 actives or less to invite two foreign students
to participate in the I-M program.
A scheduling change has moved the golf tournament up to
Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September, September 22.
Bad weather and the new full year operational program of the
University necessitated the change.
Riskey has announced that the North Campus division will be ex-
tended in 1963-64 with the possibility of a co-recreational program.
Touch football will open the fall schedule September 16. The big
question that comes to the minds of most I-M football fans is, can
Sigma Alpha Epsilon make it five straight in "A" football. The SAE's
have ends Dennis Spalla and Dave Campbell returning along with
blocking backs Jim Baker and Greg Neff from last year's squad that
swept through seven straight games unscored upon.
The big problem facing the defending champs is, who will replace
quarterback Dick Honig? Honig, now assistant varsity baseball coach
at the University, was the sparkplug of the SAE attack in '62. The
search for a signal caller may end with Spalla switching from his end
spot to the deep position in the backfield. Other possibilities include
Doug Glowe and George Skaff, members of SAE's championship "B"
squad last year.
DU has All I-M blocking back Larry Piotrowski and speedy end
Joe Mason returning from the '62 team that battled SAE down to the
wire in the quarter-finals before bowing, 8-0.
The ATO's will be operating with several new faces this fall with
veteran quarterback Cross (Woody) Hayes directing the attack.
Behemoth blocking back Arnie Bernstien leads the list of sev-
eral veterans for the Sammies. SAM went to the finals last season
before being defeated by SAE, 36-0.
Delta Tau Delta may be a sleeper in '63. The Delt's have
quarterback Phil Carlson back with Dick Hildreth and Rick Clark
on the receiving end of Carlson's aerials.
The Social Fraternity football schedule. opens September 17.
Defending champions in "A" football include Michigan House in
the residence halls division, mathematics in the faculty league, and
the Draft Dodgers in the graduate division.
Important dates on the I-M calendar for the next month, besides
golf, are outdoor track,.September 24 and 26; Cross Country, October
3; and Volleyball, October 15.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
article of two dealing with the 1963
American Football League. Today's
article analyzes the Eastern Divi-
sion.)
By LLOYD GRAFF
The consensus of the experts
who profess clairvoyance about
such matters as the Buffalo Bills
are ready to cash in on their first
title in the Eastern Division of
the American Football League.
Most of these same prophets en-
vision the Kansas City Chiefs,
alias the Dallas Texans, to cop the
Western Division crown. Generally,
the San Diego Chargers are picked
for second in the West with the
two bottom slots up for grabs be-
tween Denver and Oakland.
In the East, Houston is almost
unanimously touted for second
with Boston slated for third and
the New York Jets are relegated
to the basement.
The following is a synopsis on
the strengths and weaknesses of
each of the teams.
Eastern Division
Buffalo Bills-A couple of years
ago when the Bills were in the em-
bryo stage of development they
went through nine quarterbacks
in two seasons. Only a rugged de-
fense and Harry Wismer kept them
from becoming the Mets of pro
football. Things have changed a
lot since then, however.

Coach Lou Saban stole himselfc
a quarterback on a technicality off
the San Diego Charger waiver listf
and suddenly the team started tox
click. Jack Kemp, a plucky littleI
flinger, is rated as one of the bet-
ter throwers in the league. Put himi
next to/ monstrous 251-poundt
Cookie Gilchrist, a fullback who
runs like a cement mixer with a
jet engine, and you have a real
air and ground attack.
The line is still tough and steady
with dependable Sid Youngelman
and Tom Sestak bulwarking it.
Jim Dunaway, Mississippi All-
American, is a great line prospect.
Other fine rookies are Roger
Kochman from Penn State, George
Saimes and Dave Behrman from
Michigan State, and Ed Hoerster
of Notre Dame.
Houston Oilers - Houston's
strongest asset for this year,
George Blanda, may lose his job
to aspiring Jackie Lee this season.
The 36-year-old quarterback got
into a bad habit of throwing in-
tercepted passes last year, as 42
of his aerials were pilfered in 14
league games. He also! suffered 5
thefts in the title game against
Dallas.
This year understudy Lee may
well step into Blanda's spot unless
George is able to curb his tendency
to throw intercepted passes.
Coach Frank "Pop" Ivy will have

other decisions to make, too. He
must find a replacement for of-
fensive captain Al Jamison who
retired. Another job for Ivy will
be to convince Billy Cannon to go
all out and to try to avoid tacklers
rather than attempt to run over
them.
Houston's offensive line rates as
average without Jamison but not
spectacular. The defensive line is

just fair. Linebacking should be
good with Larry Onesti playing in
the middle.
Boston Patriots - Babe Parilli,
who led an only average Boston
team within a game of Houston
last year, returns to the Pats after
recovering from a broken collar-
bone.
Parilli threw to Gino Cappellet-
ti, Jimmy Coclaugh, and Tom Ro-
meo last year, and they are all
back. None are great ends, but are
more than adequate.
Running will be limited with the
loss of ace halfback Ron Burton
but Billy Lott and Larry Garen are
competent backs.
New York Jets-Weeb Eubank
assumed leadership of the Jets this
year after hollering Harry Wismer
was finally forced to unload his
team. The new ownership and
coaching should finally enable the
Jets to start at the beginning.
Eubank has brought some order
to the chaos which has become
synonymous with the Jets. Never-
theless, it takes players as well as
harmony to win games, and play-
ers Weeb just hasn't got. A few
good ones like end Don Maynard,
one of the league's better pass re-
ceivers, Larry Grantham, an all-
league linebacker, and Dick Chris-
ty, a top punt returner, remain
for Eubank, but there is not much
