Since 1968, the scores have shown
a marked increase. But last Satur-
day there was an appreciable de-
crease. There were 16 shutouts out
of 66 major college games as the

three seasons. Observers attribute
this decrease to the coaches' em-
phasis on the defense.

Projecting Michigan into the na-
tional records reveals some ex-
pected conclusions. In rushing of-
fense the Wolverines would be a
respectable 13th. They would be
about 20th in total offense while
it would be impossible to deter-
mine where they stand in passing
offense. This is to be expected,
since the team plays a conserva-
tive, ground-oriented game, taking
to the air only for diversion.
In the defensive statistics. the
Wolverines would probably be near
the top. Their well-balanced de-
fense is feared by their opponents,
and it has been key to at least
one of their victories this year.

the game. He had to go all out to win this pot, since he had staked his
life savings in this nefarious game to try to raise funds for 37 destitute

Keeping the ace of spades, he boldly called for four cards. The

handed him the cards. Muttering a prayer, 'Aces' began picking up
his cards one by one.
