Elliott Plans Two-Prong Game

Tactics Titles on Line in Key Games

Sports Editor
Coach Bump Elliott has been
telling newsmen across the Mid-
west this week that he has two
plans of action to try against

day for a game expected to attract
51,000 Homecoming fans.
First, he says he wants his de-
fensive line to put the big rush
on drop-back Wildcat quarterback
Tommy Myers.
Second, he hopes to have his
backfield produce a more diversi-
fied offense than it has so far this
Michigan is nestled in ninth
place in the Big Ten with a rec-
ord of 0-2-1, while Northwestern
has only a slight chance for the
conference title, ranking sixth
with a 2-2 record after beginning
the season as one of the favorites.
Overlooks Gift
In doing all this thinking out
loud before the press, however, El-
liott has been overlooking one big
advantage that his Wolverines will
have going for them today:

Big Ten Powers Fight
For Bowl Opportunity

CHICAGO (/,)-November's kill-
ing football frost starts setting in
today with a full round of Big
Ten games. And Rose Bowl hopes
could wither for no fewer than
three less hardy contenders.
Key contests in a program ex-
pected to attract a combined at-
tendance of 330,000 are Purdue,
2-1, at Illinois, 2-0-1; Wisconsin.
2-1 at Michigan State, 2-0-1; and
Iowa, 1-2, at Ohio State, 2-0-1.
It is conceivable all three co-
leaders-Illinois, Michigan State
and Ohio State-could tumble. In
this case, Wisconsin and Purdue
would be projected into the con-
ference lead. The Badgers are in-
eligible for a Rose Bowl encore.
All title signs favor Ohio State
a one-touchdown choice over in-
vading Iowa before a capacity
84,000 in the Buckeyes' big bowl.
Can't Slip
After Iowa, the Bucks meet
Northwestern and Michigan, re-
bounding out a six-game confer-
ence card. However, since a con-
ference tie counts a one-half game
won and one-half game lost in

the standings, just one slip prob-
ably would bounce Ohio State out
of the Rose Bowl picture.
The same applies to Illinois and
Michigan State, although the
surprising Fighting Illini, ranked
No. 2 in the Associated Press na-
tional poll, play seven conference
games. Michigan State, like Ohio
State, plays six.
Host Illinois is slightly favored
over Purdue, whose sharpshooting
Ron DiGravio has developed into
the Big Ten's most dangerous
quarterback. Purdue also plays
seven conference games, as does
still formidable Wisconsin. The
Boilermaker-Illinois crowd may
exceed 65,000.
Wisconsin, nipped by Ohio State
13-10 for the first Badger loss in
five starts, may prove more than
Michigan State can handle al-
though an expected Spartan

vinced. MSU's Sherman Lewis al-

UNION TAKES DIVE-The sun was shining yesterday as the Daily cast its big shadow upon the Michigan Union jock-pile in a convincing
12-6 Bier Bowl triumph. Ron "Wahoo" Wilton, with a helping hand and a pat on the back from Bob "The Zephyr" Zwinck, intercepts
another Union-to-Daily toss. Losing in the stretch are Bobby "Porky" McKenzie, diving, and stablemate "Lazy Ray" Rusnak, 'tripping
him. Such exciting action brought the return of the coveted Little Brown Wastebasket to The Daily, where it will be on special display to-
day only. After that it goes back into use.

lard for a first down. Two plays
later Rowland tossed a pass to his
halfback Bob "The Zephyr"
Zwinck who then hit Bullard with
a pass in the end zone. The con-
version attempt failed.
Zwinck dropkicked off to the

Union. On the Scabs' first play
from scrimmage the Zephyr inter-
cepted a poorly aimed pass and
lightly skipped 60 yards for anoth-
er six-pointer. Before you could
say Union-League merger the Lib-
els were 12 points up.
As was expected the Union pan-
icked. They sent in President Ray
"The Rooster" Rusnak who was

dressed appropriately in sweat
clothes and a bow tie. Rusnak,
whose offensive moves were far
less smooth than a lumpy frosty
shake, confused the Union enough
so that it could manage just two
ineffectual plays before the half
During halftime, James "Knute"
Berger gave an inspiring pep talk

to the Libels that ended in the
enduring words "win one for Lipp-

hand, discussed ways to bribe the
referees. As usual the topic was
delegated to a committee. They
ended their conclave with the
thrilling words, "let's have some

three. The Daily was then penaliz-
ed thirty yards for miniscule tech-
nicalities like clipping. The Union
finally took over and picked up a
lucky score on a pass to Bob
"Porky" McKenzie. The extra
point attempt failed, of course.
The Daily then lost the ball on
downs, thanks to a series of biased
calls by the refs. A zealous Daily
cheerleader aimed a caustic barb
at one referee at that point. "Kill
the bum for 73 years of editorial
freedom," she yelled.
The Union showed signs of
scabbing out another touchdown
but a last second interception by
Storch sealed the outcome.
So alas, after two years in the
Union, the little brown wastebas-
ket is home. It is Union madness
to think they will ever get it back.


Does a man really take unfair advantage of women
when he uses Mennen Skin Bracer?


All depends on why he uses it.
Most men simply think Menthol-Iced Skin Bracer is the best
after-shave lotion around. Because it cools rather than burns.
Because it helps heal shaving nicks and scrapes. Because it
helps prevent blemishes.
