'M' Winds Up 3-4-2 Season

Keating and O'Donnell
Chosen in Both Leagues

Home Meet Tests Swimmers


It was a season of almost but
not quite, that. is perhaps the best
way to describe Michigan's 19631
gridiron performance.
While the 3-4-2 record and a tie
for fifth place in the Big Ten
is nothing to really get excited
about, most Michigan followers
would be quick to admit that the
team's showing this fall was by far
an improvement over 1962 when
the Wolverines managed only two
victories in nine contests.
In commenting upon the season,
Michigan Coach Bump Elliott said
he was "pleased with the prog-
ress and the way the team played."
'Our regret is that the record
couldn't be better," he added.
Upsets Satisfying
Elliott called the upset wins
over Northwestern and brother
Pete's Illinois team the most satis-
fying moments of the year. On the
other side of the coin, the losses
to Minnesota and Ohio State were
"extremely disappointing," he
The latter two contests are espe-
cially indicative of Michigan's grid
plight in '63. Against the Gophers,
the maize and blue pushed Min-
nesota all over the field in the
second half but couldn't erase the
big "zero" on its side of the score
board. As a result Michigan drop-
ped a 6-0 contest and lost a

chance to claim the Little Brown
Jug for the first time since 1958.
Last Saturday's 14-10 defeat at
the hands of Woody Hayes' Ohio
State Buckeyes was another case
of a determined Michigan squad
falling just short of victory. It was
no secret that Elliott and the
squad were anxious to revenge the
50-20 and 28-0 beatings handed
to them by the High Street boys
in the last two years. However,
the old hand of fate was again
cruel to the Wolverines.
Although there were disappoint-
ing moments during the season,
two accomplishments made an
otherwise drab season fairly suc-
cessful. The 14-8 victory over Big
Ten titlist Illinois was the only
blemish on the Illini's record, oth-
er than a tie with Ohio State.
Equally gratifying was the 7-7
deadlock with Michigan State, who
finished second in the Big Ten
race. No other club in the confer-
ence came close to achieving that
Lacking the breakaway speed of
a McRae or a Raimey, Elliott
shifted his emphasis this fall to
power football. The'shift began to
pay big dividends in the later
half of the season as Mel Anthony
developed into a powerful running
fullback and quarterback Bob
Timberlake displayed some excit-
ing moments on pass-run option

Anthony ended the season as
Michigan's top ground gainer with
399 yards in 103 rushes for a 3.5
average. The Cincinnati junior
also scored five touchdowns.
Certainly a cheerful note for
Elliott and his staff was the emer-
gence of Timberlake as a top
notch Big Ten quarterback. After
spending much of his time in the
first three games nursing a
shoulder injury, the lanky signal
caller came off the bench in the
second half. of the Purdue game
to direct the Wolverines to a pair
of touchdowns. He was an impor-
tant cog in Michigan's 27-7 upset
over Northwestern and played ex-
tremely well in both the Iowa and
Ohio State games.
Nebraska Tickets
Student and faculty tickets
can be obtained at the athletic
ticket office for coupons on
Thursday for Friday night's
game with Nebraska.
On the season Timberlake com-
pleted 47 of 98 passes for 593 yards
and three touchdowns. He also
racked up 231 yards on 98 carries
and scored 27 points on two touch-
downs, 12 extra points and one
field goal.
One of the most exciting players
on the Michigan squad this fall
was junior end John Henderson.
After sitting out last season due to
ineligibility, the speedy flanker
picked off 24 passes for 301 yards
and four touchdowns.
While the 1964 season may seem
a long way off, Elliott is optimis-
tic about next year. "Generally
speaking," says the Michigan
coach, "there is a solid nucleus
to begin with next year."
Returning next fall will be a
core of over 20 lettermen, includ-
ing 9 of the 11 starters from this
year's squad. The big losses will
be tackle Tom Keating and guard
Joe O'Donnell. "You don't lose
two ball players the caliber of
Keating and O'Donnell and not
feel it," says Elliott.
Although a lot of things can
happen ,between now and next
September, things definitely look
bright for Bump Elliott and his
Wolverines in 1964.

Michigan's Gus Stager and
Michigan State's Charles McCaf-
free are conducting a two part
swimming experiment, the first
half to be staged this Saturday
afternoon in the Matt Mann Pool.
The event is known as the Mich-
igan College Swim Meet. A sec-
ond Michigan College Meet has
been scheduled for East Lansing
on March 12.
It is an experiment for two rea-
sons. First, the competition is de-
signed for all swimmers, freshman
and varsity, at all junior colleges,
colleges, and universities in Mich-
Second, there will be no separ-
ate preliminary and final heats.
Places in all events will be decid-
ed on a time basis with the fastest
swimmers seeded together in the
same heat.
MSU Adds Interest
"Spectator-wise this meet will
be interesting for everyone," Sta-
ger said. "With just our varsity
and freshmen alone this would be
a good meet. But with all the
Michigan State swimmers coming
and the other swimmers from
around the state the meet should'
be outstanding."
Because freshmen are competing
along with varsity swimmers
without AAU sanction in the meet,
Stager and McCaffree checked
with William R. Reed, Big Ten
athletic commissioner, to see if
this was in accord with the con-
ference rules. Reed consulted with
Walter Byers, NCAA executive di-
rector, to find out the NCAA regu-
lations on the subject.

Both Reed and Byers agreed
that freshmen could compete in
the meet without jeopardizing
their eligibility if two conditions
were met. The first was that the
meet has to be closed to just
swimmers from Michigan junior
colleges, colleges, and universi-

mers in the state added oppor-
tunity for competition. Stager for-
sees no federation movement to
seize control of the sport from
the AAU like the attempt that has
been made in track. One reason
Stager gave is that women and
the younger swimmers in the age
group programs depend almost en-
tirely on the AAU for support.
Continue in AAU's ,
The Michigan squad will con-
tinue to compete in AAU events
in addition to its participation in
the two college meets. On the
weekend before last S t a g e r
brought his varsity and freshmen
to the Michigan AAU Champion-
ships outside of Detroit.
Stager pointed out that there
are few AAU meets that have good
enough competition to challenge
the Michigan swimmers. Even the
state AAU Championships were
somewhat disappointing since all
the Michigan State swimmers did
not enter the meet.
This defect will be remedied in
Saturday's meet. The inclusion of
Michigan State swimmers in the
meet makes it the toughest event
that the Wolverines have entered
so far in the young season.

tackle Carl Eller of Minnesota.
Both were so outstanding in
leading their teams to important
Thanksgiving Day victories that
it was impossible to award one the
edge. So for the first time this
season they were selected by The

One Man Gang
Butkus, 6-foot-3, 234-pound jun-
ior center from Chicago, was de-
scribed as a "One Man Gang" in
Illinois' 13-0 triumph over Michi-
gan State at East Lansing that
brought the Illini the Big Ten
championship and a trip to the
Rose Bowl.
Eller, 6-5, 245-pound tackle from
Winston-Salem, N.C., proved to be
a ton of dynamite in Minnesota's
14-0 triumph over Wisconsin at
Eller proved a titan of defensive
strength in the Minnesota-Wis-
consin game. He was the princi-
pal figure in a Minnesota goal-line
stand that smacked down three
Wisconsin rushes from the one
near the end of the first half. He
threw quarterback Harold Brandt
for an eight-yard loss when the
Badgers were threatening on an-
other occasion.
Deflected Pass
The big tackle also deflected a
Brandt pass which teammate Bob
Bruggers intercepted to end Wis-
consin's last threat. He capped
his performance by grabbing a 12-
yard pass on a tackle eligible play
late in the game.
"I don't believe there's a better
football player in the country,"
said Minnesota Coach Murray
Warmath. "He's tremendous."
Warmath might be slightly prej-
udiced, but not Coach Milt Bruhn
of Wisconsin, who said :
"He's great-he and Dick But-

kus of Illinois are the outstand-
ing players in the Big Ten."
Butkus Stops Lopes, Lewis
Butkus lived up to this praise in
the game against Michigan State.
He was given a large share of the
credit for Illinois' fine defensive
performance against one of the
nation's more explosive offensive
Every time MSU fullback Roger
Lopes pounded into the line he
found Butkus waiting for him.
Speedy Sherman Lewis was limit-
ed to 58 yards on 13 carries.

Sport coats are the most versatile garment in
a man's wardrobe. It's one of the few garments
equally acceptable for casual or campus dress
up affairs. As such, it needs the special atten-
tion to details necessary to give your garment
a completely correct look for campus wear.
At Greene's, you can be sure 3-button jackets
are properly rolled to the third button .. .
(we even have a special retainer to hold the
lapels in place.) Sleeves are always rolled.
Tweeds and flannels all get an extra soft press
to retain their natural texture. Of course, neces-
sary minor repairing is done on all garments.
Greene's customers expect and get these extras.
If you haven't been using Greene's campus
