Graduating Captain Joe O'Don-
nell summed it up, "I've never
beaten them. I was on that team
two years ago when they whipped
us 50-20, and last year 28-0, and
this is my last encounter with
Of the graduating players, no
less than six are from Ohio.
O'Donnell commented, "A lot of'
our boys are from Ohio, so the
game will have some special sig-
nificance for them. Actually
though, it won't be much differ-
ent from a lot of other games,
even though this is my last one."
Michigan head coach Bump El-

liott feels that "the graduating
seniors have been a good group of
boys. They've provided us with
some excellent leadership and
have helped to fire up the team
in many of our games."
Perhaps Elliott's biggest losses
will be in the departure of guard
ODonnell and tackle Tom Keat-
ing. Both players have been men-
tioned more than once this year
for All-American honors.
"It's difficult to lose two fel-
lows like that," Elliott remarked.
They have done an excellent job;
for us and I think they deserve
all the honors that they're being
named for."
O'Donnell has been majoring in
biology but hopes either to go to
graduate business school or to en-
ter a sales position. For a long
time to come he will best be re-

membered by Michigan fans for
his 50-yard fake punt touchdown
run against Southern Methodist
this year.
Keating Improved
Keating last year saw more ac-
tion than any other player except
O'Donnell, and won the Meyer
Morton Trophy as the most im-
proved player in spring practice.
He's been the first string tackle all
Quarterback Bob Chandler is
actually completing his fifth foot-
ball season at Michigan. He in-
jured his knee in the 1960 Michi-
gan State game and was granted
another year of eligibility. His
long accurate passes have brought
fans in the Michigan Stadium to
their feet on more than one oc-
casion. This year he was promoted
to first string quarterback in the
Michigan State game and set up
the Wolverines' lone tally in that
contest. Currently he is listed as
the third team signal caller.

except for a costly knee injury.
He gained an extra year of eligi-
bility though, and returned this
year, where he is currently listed
on the second team. Houtman is

Halfback Harvey Chapman, al-
most the forgotten man on this
year's squad, has already earned
two letters in football and two
more in baseball. Shoved down to
the third team this year, Chap-
man came into last week's Iowa
game to play most of the way.
During last year, he was one of the
leading pass receivers on the
Other graduating players, who
should be set for their last bitter
encounter with the Buckeyes, are
Denis Alix, quarterback; Don
Blanchard, tackle; Bill Dodd,
halfback; Dave K o v a c e v i c h,
guard; Dave Kurtz, guard; Bill
Muir, center; John Pasch, guard;
Tom Prichard, quarterback;
Wayne Sparkman, fullback; Dick
Szymanski, center; and Paul
Woodward, guard.

Silence and intense concentra-
tion seemed to be the byword at
football practice yesterday as the
Wolverines had their last day of
practice before the final game of
the season against Ohio State.
The thought of the last two
years' pastings by the Buckeyes
were fresh in the mind of the few
old timers watching the practice
session. Looking forward to Sat-
urday, they also looked back to
the past big games with the tra-
ditional end of season rivals.
The Michigan-OSU series is the
longest in Michigan football, this
year's meeting being the.60th be-
tween the two schools. The first
year, 1897, saw the Wolverines
completely overwhelm the Bucks,
36-0. Fielding Yost's point-a-min-
ute clubs held the Buckeyes score-
less in the series until 1904, when
Ohio State managed a touchdown
in a 31-6 loss. Michigan's highest
total over the Scarlet and Gray
occurred two years previous, when
the Wolverines barreled to an 86-0
Michigan's domination over
Ohio State lasted until 1919. In,

that year, only the fifth losing attempt went down the chute to

1927 saw the completion of the
present Michigan Stadium. In the
dedication game the Wolverines
rolled over Ohio State 21-0. Ben-
nie Oosterbaan was team captain.
From 1945 to 1951 the Wolver-
ines completely dominated the
Buckeyes, on the way to four con-
secutive Big Ten titles and two
Rose Bowl victories, except for
one year - 1949.

scored early in the game and held

The 97,000 fans watched breath-
lessly as the point-after-touch-
down kick went up-and outside

lation of the Michigan supporters
was short lived however, as one

gan player offsides. The second

The next year, 1950, was a ban-
ner year in Michigan football, as
an underdog group of Wolverines
fielded a devastating defense to
come up with a 9-3 win over the
Buckeyes in a blizzard, with a foot
of snow already covering the sta-
dium. The winning touchdown
was scored by the defense as Wol-
verine line-backer Tony Momsen
broke through the OSU line to
block a punt and fall on the loose
ball in the end zone. A similarly
blocked punt earlier in the con-
test had given the Wolverines a
two-point safety.
Since 1950, however, things have
not been so rosy for the men from
Ann Arbor, having won only four
from Ohio State since that year.
Head Coach Bump Elliott's only
victory over the Buckeyes came
in 1959, 23-14, and since then the
Wolverines have suffered two of
their most humiliating defeats in
recent years, 50-20 and 28-0, in
1961 and 1962 respectively.

Michigan opens its swimming
season tonight in a meet which
will have no bearing on its official
record, but which is nonetheless
extremely important to Coach Gus
This meet is the Michigan AAU
State Championship, to be held
tonight and tomorrow at Fitzger-
ald High School outside Detroit.
"First of all," he said, "the meet
will give us a good early appraisal
as to where we are." Stager mnain-
tained that time trials, his only
measure of the talents of some of
this year's hopefuls to date, do
not always tell the whole story

about a swimmer, for some per-
form well only in competition.
"This weekend will let us see who
will continue and who will fall
by the wayside," he remarked.
The principal competition at the
championships for the Wolverine
swimmers may come from within
the team itself. "Some of our men
will have trouble making it to the
finals," commented Stager.
Aside from intrasquad compe-
tition, it is expected that the chief
rivals will prove to be Michigan
State and Birmingham Seaholm
High School, defending state high
school champs. State will be send-
ing several top candidates, includ-
ing several sophomores.

Honda is number one in the
world. Ask any:of the million or so
people who ride one. Honda is com-
fortable, economical, and lots of
fun. Take it anywhere. Around
town, or around the world. To work,
to school, or to Grandma's for tea.
You'll meet Honda enthusiasts
wherever you go. Students, stock-
brokers, singers, and salesmen, they
all like Honda's low price. They like
its honest, functional design. They
like the way it handles-the way
they can park it anywhere, just
about. And they like that one-to-
one relationship they feel when
they're riding it. Honda is a totally
new experience.
And every day, more and more
Americans-from all walks of life-
are finding that out. Honda is an
easy and efficient means of trans-
portation. It'll take you 200 miles on
a gallon of gas. It's powered with
the famous Honda-pioneered 4-
stroke, air-cooled OHV engine. 'That
means longer life, greater fuel econ-
omy and cleaner exhaust. All models
have constant mesh transmission,
large brakes, and an optional electric
self-starter. In a word, Honda is
two-wheeled perfection. It's easy on
the eyes, easy on the ears, easy on
your bank account, and more fun
to ride than you can imagine!
People want to know about Hon-
da. And this is what we tell them.
Honda Motor Company Ltd. is big.
Annual sales exceed 200 million
dollars. Its three plants are located
in Japan, and are the largest in the
world. And the most modern in the
world. Honda employs about 6,000
workers, and the business has ex-
panded almost 9,000 times since its
inventor-president,., Soichiro Honda,
opened its doors in 1948. Honda, al-
most completely automated, can
turn out a Honda 50 every seven
seconds. Honda prides itself on its
amazing success, yet strives to outdo
itself every year. There is -constant
improvement of design and produc-
tion. Honda doesn't wait to makes
annual changes, but incorporates
improvements as they are developed.
Every Honda is precision-built. To-
day, in a newly-built plant located
on a 17-acre site near Tokyo, over
700 Honda scientists and technicians
are engaged in research. They work
in a specially designed plant that
was built at a cost of over 5 million
dollars. Their objective: improve-
ment of Honda products, develop-
ment of new products, superior
techniques. This Research Institute,
where Soichiro Honda can be found
at work any day, has no equal in
the world. It has unparalleled facili-
ties, an unexcelled staff.
Honda has created a revolution in
transportation. It has broken down
old prejudices. It is creating a new
image in the public eye. Recognition
of this fact has come from many
sources. Some has come unsolicited
from competitors, who can't help
but notice the increase in Honda
sales. Much has come from leading
metropolitan newspapers and from
widely-read publications such as
"Time" and "Business week" mag-
azines. Celebrities and movie stars
such as Ann-Margret and Rock Hud-
son enjoy being seen on a Honda.
The word is out. Honda is in.
Honda has broken sales records all
over the world since the company's
inception in 1948. And since 1959-
when they were first introduced in
the U.S. by American Honda-they
have made even those records obso-
lete! It's easy to see why. Honda
outproduces, outperforms, outsells
all other two-wheeled vehicles in
the world. It is absolutely without
peer-in its field and in its price
range. And Honda is growing. The
modern office building in Gardena,
California, accommodates a staff of:

terprises on the international scene.
Honda owners are growing more and
more numerous. You see them
everywhere. Honda is the most pop-
ular two-wheeled vehicle in America
today. Why is this so? People buy
Honda because of its spectacularly
low price. Because of its reputation
for quality, performance, reliability.
And because American Honda-on
behalf of its growing network of
dealers from coast to coast-has
been promoting Honda in a vigorous,
unprecedented advertising and sales
promotion campaign. Honda invests
annually 20 times the amount spent
by its nearest competitor. Honda's
expenditure is more than all other
makes combined. No wonder people
are coming in to Honda dealers.
People who've never been on a
motorcycle before. People who are
completely new to the concept of
two-wheel transportation. They like
the idea of inexpensive, personal
transportation-to work, to school,
or just for fun. They like the kind
of mileage they get, the easy hand-
ling, the way a Honda maneuvers
and parks, the way it's styled.
The intensive work that goes into
research; the bold inventiveness
that marks all Honda products;
these all culminate in the match-
lessly designed racing models for
which Honda is world famous. Each
year, with expected consistency,
Honda carries off the world's top
prizes. Even as early as 1961, Honda,
then still a newcomer to the motor-
cycle racing world, was taking top
honors in international competi-
tion. The following year Honda
made a clean sweep of all divisions
entered in the Grand Prix. Recently,
a British motorcycle manufacturer
became curious, and took a Honda
apart. "When we stripped the ma-
chine, frankly, it was so good it
frightened us," he said. "It was
made like a watch. And it wasn't
a copy of anything. It was a project
of original thinking, and very good
thinking." In racing, the undeniable
superiority of Honda stands re-
All Honda models are designed to
take it, whether it's a 305cc Super
Hawk or the 50cc Super Sports. For
racing or running errands, no other
machine can match Honda's crafts-
manship and economy. All models
are repeatedly inspected, tested, in-
strument-checked at all speeds be-
fore they leave the factory. All
models are built to last. Engine and
frame are designed to live a long,
healthy, trouble-free life. No matter
what your taste or need in two-
wheeled transportation, there's a
Honda for you. And with Honda you
get the finest made two-wheeled
vehicle on the road. You get superb
performance. You get an agile, re-
sponsive, reliable product. A Honda

It's been a busy first year for Wisconsin Telephone's Ken
Huck (B.A., 1962).
In less than a year's time, Ken has filled in as Business
Office Supervisor in Janesville, and as Manager both there
and in Watertown, Wisconsin. Besides managerial duties,
he made studies on manager security checks and order-
writing discrepancies, and compiled work volume forecasts
for Janesville and Beloit.

Few men in any field of work begin their careers with
as much responsibility as Ken Buck has found at Wisconsin
Telephone. His company is well aware that managerial
muscle, if it is to grow, needs exercise.
Ken Huck, like many young men, is impatient to make
things happen for his company and himself. There are
few places where such restlessness is more welcomed or
rewarded than in the fast-growing telephone business.
