McRae Seeking
To Break Loose


"It's hard to score down there,"
Elliott remarked, "but then that's
the difference between an average
team and a good one. Our record
shows this lack, too. No one indi-
vidual is at fault when we fail to
score, but rather the whole team,"
he added.
The presence of a hard-driving
fullback like that of Ohio State's
Bob White might help the Wol-
verines, but Elliott wasn't so sure
in so far as scoring from in close
was concerned.
White May Not Play
Incidentally, White, who has
been rampaging in the Big Ten for
three years, may sit out tomor-
row's contest due to an old injury
which has hampered him all year.,
For the Wolverines, senior guard
Alex Callahan is definitely out of
action. But senior fullback Tony
Rio, also hurt in the Indiana'
game, will dress and probably play.
Elliott said his condition was
Rio will be among nine seniors'
on the squad playing their last
game for Michigan, not including
Brad Myers who was through ear-
lier in the year.

As is customary on the last
Thursday practice of the season,.
the seniors had an extra point
kicking contest yesterday with
Captain George Genyk the winner.
He was aided by the fact that
Darrell Harper, a specialist in
this department, kicked left-footed
instead of his natural way.
Hopes All Seniors Play
In speaking of the seniors rela-
tive to tomorrow's game, Elliott
said that it would be nice if they
could all play but it depended on,
what happened during the tilt.
"We plan on using three platoons
as we have been most of this
year," he said.k
The presence of only nine sen-
iors on the squad has a hopeful
note to Michigan fans realizing
that the majority of the team will
be back for another try next fall.
"All the boys have gained a lot
this year," Elliott said, "and their
spirit and morale has been great.
They have come along real 'well,
improving week by week. The most
important thing is that they have
improved themselves personally
and despite the fact that you
never like to lose, that's all I can
ask of them."

ALMOST-That's the word used to describe the explosive running
of Michigan's sophomore halfback Bennie McRae. He is the
team's second leading ground gainer, but has yet to break away
on that long run, almost getting away on several occasions.
Spartans Face Hurricanes
In Duel of Quarterbacks

Lurking in the minds of Michi-
gan fans this Saturday as it has
been all fall will be the question:
Is this the day Bennie McRae will
break loose?
It has almost happened several'
times this fall.
The speedy sophomore will take
the ball from the quarterback and
head up field, swerving to and fro,
to takebadvantage of his team-
mates blocks, and dancing and
accelerating where there are no
blocks until he is finally halted.
Many times he has been stopped,
just another half step from an
open field, where his blinding
speed will leave any opponent be-
These jaunts of McRae, though
unsuccessful in the scoring col-
umn, have not escaped the eyes
of the Michigan fans. In fact, just
about every time the Newport
News, Va., yearling tucks the pig-
skin under his arm, a tremble of
anticipation rumbles through the
Stadium - only to be squelched
seconds later in a chorus of "al-
Missing has been that little in-
tangible something that would
change those 'almosts" to touch-
down yells. However, it may not be
missing Saturday.
For the McRae of today is a
more experienced and mature
player than the flashy sophomore
who scored two touchdowns in his
first varsity appearance-when he
caught a 44-yard pass and swept
right end from 10 yards out
against Missouri.
. Since that time he has carried
the ball 68 times, more than any
other player on the Michigan
squad. He has gained 221 yards,
second only to Fred Julian's 235,
good for a 3.2 average. He has also

caught four passes for a total of
102 yards.
In rolling up these statistics, he
has learned alot. He admits that
himself. His coach, Bump Elliott,
acknowledges the fact that McRae
has improved both on offense and
Combining this experience with
McRae's natural abilities comes up
with a potent combination. A man
who will attest to McRae's speed
is Michigan track coach Don Can-

However, the question remains:
When will McRae have that first

Michigan backfield stars have
made a habit of having great days
against Ohio State.
It was just two years ago that
Jim Pace put on a one-man show,
gaining 164 yards against the
Buckeyes, and last fall it was Bob
Ptacek, completing 24 of 35 passes
to set a Big Ten record, who star-
red against the Woody Hayes'
club. Perhaps McRae will continue
the tradition.

Knickerbockers Beat
Royals in NBA Tilt

York Knickerbockers, leading all
the way and profiting handsomely
by ragged play of their opponents,
sent the Cincinnati Royals to their
eighth straight National Basket-
ball Association defeat here last
night, 130-109.
It was the third victory in a rowj
for the Knicks.I
The Knicks, getting away in1
front, never were seriously threat-
ened after Cincinnati drew to

within three points at 21-18 in
the first quarter. New York had a
62-47 lead at the half.
Cincinnati fell even farther be-
hind in the third quarter and, at
one time trailed by 29 points at
The story of the game was told
in ragged ball handling. Unofficial
figures showed the Royals lost the
ball 28 times without getting a
shot while New York was guilty of
only 12 such errors.

MIAMI () - Michigan State's
football team came to Miami two
days early to get acclimated to the
Florida heat before its game with
the Miami Hurricanes tonight in
the Orange Bowl. But so far, the
Spartans have- seen nothing but
chilly rain,
Coach Duffy Daugherty worked
the team briefly in a drenching
rain Wednesday night. Yesterday,
when a six-inch deluge hit the
city, he abandoned the idea of
practice and took the players to
the Miami Seaquarium to see the
performing fish.
Miami's practice was washed out,
too, but the lack of work could
be most costly to the Spartans,
because it is always more difficult
for Daugherty to get the team up
for a non-conference game than
for a Big Ten opponent.
Miami, a seven-point underdog,
will have plenty of incentive, for
victories over Michigan State and
Florida next week might win an
invitation from the Orange Bowl
to play in the New Year's Day

The Miami game will have no
effect on Michigan State's Rose
Bowl hopes. The Spartans have a
chance to go to Pasadena, but an
outside one. They'll make the trip
only if Wisconsin and Northwest-
ern lose or tie in their games
tomorrow with Minnesota and Illi-
nois, r,3spectively.
An interesting sidelight of the
game could be a duel between two
All-American quarterback candi-
dates-Fran Curci of Miami and
Dean Look of Michigan State.
Daugherty and Miami's Coach
Andy Gustafson each describes his
boy as the best signal caller he has
Curci, who at 152 spots Look 36
pounds, has a more impressive
record with a total offense mark
of 1,020 yards to 734 for Look.
However, Look missed one game
and parts of two others this season
because of a shoulder injury. Curci
also has been a standout on de-
fense, a remarkable factor in view
of his size.

A column of incidental hotelligence _
by Jockey broand
For this overworked phrase,
we must turn to the world's
richest source of quotations--
the Bible. Specifically,
the Old Testament,
Deuteronomy, XXXII, 10:
"He kept him as the apple
of his eye."

Seems like everybody had a crack at this piece
of homely philosophy, but the originator seems
to be Geoffrey Chaucer, in "The House of
Fame", Book l:
IHyt is not a gold that glareth"
"COUNT 1..."
Was there any limit to the talents of Thomas
Jefferson? Statesman,scientist, architect-he also
authored this admonition:
"When angry, count ten before you speok;
if very angry, a hundred."
