culated Michigan State last week
42-16, and would like nothing bet-
ter than to add a Wolverine to
their collection of scalps..
Schembechler feels that the
team's two biggest problems, run-
ning and offensive blocking, have
improved after a week of hard
work. "We hope we've improved
on blocking and running," he com-
mented after Thursday's prac-
tice.
TAILBACK Glenn Doughty, who
rushed for only 19 yards against
Arizona has also improved after
a week's workout. "Doughty's a
little better;" Schembechler noted,
"he's not up to form yet but he'll
improve every week."
, The work along the line should
be stronger as Reggie McKenzie
and Werner Hall, both starting at
guard for the first time in the
opener, now have a game under
their belts. The availability of
tackle Jack Uarpring -will also
help as he has recovered suffici-

this year.
After crushing a poor Wichita
State squad 41-14, the Aggies
stunned almost everyone by pull-
ing a 20-18 upset of a heavily,
favored Louisiana State team. The
winning play for the astounding
Aggies was a Lex James to Hugh
McElroy touchdown pass coming
with 13 seconds left in the game.
GOOD THOUGH the Aggies'
may be, they will have, to be ex-
* ceptional to beat this hungry Ohio
State team. The Buckeyes, with
much the same squad that earned
at least a .share of the Big Ten
title the last two seasons, are
primed for the opener with the
only ipjury being a broken foot
to starting safety and punter,
Mike Sensibaugh.
The Bucks are lead by basically
the same crew that rolled into the
national championship two years
ago. There are possible All-Amer-
Icans scattered throughout the
starting lineup, from quarterback
Rex Kern on to halfback Larry
Zelina, cornerback Jack Tatum,
middle guard Jim . Stillwagon,

CHICAGO-All-American hope-!
ful Steve McCarthy led Michigan to.
a 13-12 victory over the Kentucky
C Wildcats last night in the Loyola
Invitational Water Polo Tourna-
ment. Displaying his dexterity in
front of a sellout home town
crowd, the sophomore poured in
eight goals to spearhead the Blue,
attack. Although they periodically
showed a weakness, both in pass-:
ing' and on defense, Michigan is:
now established as favorites to
win the four team round robin
which winds up this afternoon as
Michigan faces lagt year's chain-
pions, Loyola.
Strong performances are ex-
pected from Bob Zann, -who led'
a tenacious fourthrquarter de-
fense in the Kentucky game, and
Rory Moore who added two pic-
ture goals in this evening's con-,
test. Sophomores Ray McCullough,:
and Larry Day, as well as fresh-
men Paul Fairman and Stu Isaacs
will balance the team's play. By
their success, the Michigan Water
Polo Team is expected to be a:
powerhouse this year in the Mid-
west Conference.

have been restlessly waiting for'
since last Nov. 22.
The other Big Ten game that
is attracting attention is the Pur;
due-Notre Dame contest today in
South Bend. The Irish have not
won this annual affair in three
years and are looking to turn their
luck around. Joe Theismann, their
senior quarterback, will lead the
Irish offense along with his favor-
ite target at split end, Tom Gate-
wood.
NORTHWESTERN coach Alex
Agase, whose team was swamped
by the Irish last week commented
that, "Theismann to Gatewood
can strike lightning, and that
Theismann is pretty cute- out
there. He was tremendous on
those third and fourth down situ-
ations."
Irish coach Ara Parseghian,
speaking on his whole attack as-
serted that "We're basically the
same kind of team as last year
jwith much of the same philosophy.
We still don't have a breakaway'
back, but if you defense us out-
side, we can. run inside. And if,
you defense us in the middle,
Theissman can hit Gatewood."
Purdue coach Bob DeMoss has
finally settled on a starting quar-
terback to replace the departed
Mike Phipps. After sifting through
five potential candidates, De Moss
decided to go with sophomore
Chuck Piebes.
PARSEGHIAN, after viewing
films of Piebes, termed him as
fitting the "mold of normal Pur-
due quarterbacks." He referred to
Piebes as quick and agile, but was
surprised that he threw only eight'
passes in Purdue's 15-0 victory!
over Texas Christian last week.
According to Parseghian the
Boilermakers are in the habit of
putting the ball in the air be-
tween 25 and 35 times every game.
Purdue certainly does not lack a
good receiver; tight end Ashley
Bell can be devastating at any
time.
AT STAKE in this intrastate
clash is not only pride and na-
tional ranking, but also the covet-
ed "Shillelagh" which goes to the
winner. A key factor in the out-
come of today's game could be
injuries to Purdue's fullback John
Bullock and center George Bucha-
nan, who will both miss the game.!I

ently from the shoulder separa-
tion he suffered against the
Wildcats to make the start today.
The passing game, while not as
disappointing as the running at-
tack, was not up to expectations
either against Arizona, but
Schembechler feels that this was
due to a fluke rather than poor
play. "The blocked passes were
astronomical last week," he noted,
but no one was at fault.
KICK RUNBACKS also failed to
gain yards for-the Wolverines last
week, but Schembechler wasn't
terribly concerned. He attributed
the lack of return yardage to
Michigan's emphasis on a strong
rush rather than a weakness on
the runback but concedes, "that's
where the loss of Bruce Elliot
really hurts."
While Schembechler is sure
that his offense will be better, he
has to wonder whether is de-
fense can handle Washington's
Cherokee commander Sonny Six-
killer. "Sixkiller is very good,"
Schembechler admitted, "but
hopefully we'll show him better
coverage and a stronger rush than
Michigan State did. The one thing
we have to do is to prevent the
long play. That's what killed
State."
THE WOLVERINES will defin-
itely have to hassle Sixkiller more
than the Spartans did. Against
State the quarterback accounted
for more than half of the Huskies
598 total yards, ,most of them
coming in the air.
With no calamitous injuries in
the Arizona game and none dur-
ing the week's practices all of
last Saturday's starters will be
ready to go again and Schem-
bechler plans to start the same 22
players that opened the season.
The team arrived late in Seattle,
incidently, due to a two hour de-
lay in leaving Metro, which neces-
sitated pushing back their sched-
uled practice time on the astro-

turf. The Wolverines have never
played on it before, so they need-
ed a chance to get acclimated and
to break in their new shoes, pur-
chased to combat the slippery con-
ditions that plagued State last
week.'
"WE WERE thinking about
testing the shoes on an Astro-turf
field in Flint," Schembechler com-
mented before the team left, but
we didn't get a chance. I know we
have the right kind though, be-
cause we got the same brand that
Washington wears."~

In their toughest test yet thisX
season, the Michigan Ruggers will:
battle the University of Toronto r
in the Canadian city today. '
Toronto, a city where rugby ist
almost as popular as football isa
here, has over 40 competitive rug-
by teams. The University squad
leads the way.c
Hank Lukaski, Michigan Rugby1
Football Club president, acclaims
that Toronto is the most polishedt
team around.
"They make very few mistakes!
and we'll have to beat them at
their game if we intend to win."
Toronto is a very orthodox club
which thrives on ball control. But,
Michigan has displayed that ball
control is their bag also.
"Naturally, if we can control the
ball like we did last week, we
should win," Lukaski commented.
This outstanding quality of both
teams should provide the Toronto
partisans with a very wide open'
game as both teams are nearly
even in the forward ranks.
Lukaski contended that the

key to today's game will be the
play of both backfields. "Toron-
to's backs are much quicker and
much more experienced than ours,
but we hope to stop that edge on
the basis of our overall better fit-
ness."
The two teams met last year
and both the Blues and the Golds
came out victorious. The Blues
knocked off the Toronto "A" team
13-5 while the Golds pummeled
the Toronto "B" squad 8-0.
