Gridde Pickings
The hunchback of Burton Tower ran gleefully to the top of the
Bell Chamber, his mind intent only on' ringing those chimes. The
fugue slowly built to a deafening crescendo as Quusumado, the
Devil's disciple, swung gaily from the ropes.
Nickel cokes were removed and replaced by Grade A, Pasteurized,
homogenized, Vitamin D Enriched, ten cent milk machine. Interest
in the Daily waned as the Sports Staff died of thirst. Astabula, sens-
ing that something was amiss, snuck her way homeward to the
comfort of her niche in the corridor at the top of the stairs.
The magic football grew in the horizon. As it expanded it radiated
eerie colors, as if it was possessed by some radioactive force that
twisted its wavelengths. Steadily increasing in size, the oblate object
stretched beyond its limits. As the stress on its very fabric reached the

DETROIT (IP)-Joe Frazier, a
brutal punching machine, floored
Bob Foster twice with vicious left
hooks and scored a second-round
knockout last night in successful
defense of his world heavyweight
championship that set up a pos-
sible $10 million dream fight with
Cassius Clay.
The time was 49 seconds of the
second round.
Foster, the stringbean seeking
to become the first light heavy-
weight champion in history to

capture the heavier crown, took
the final count flat on his back,
his glazed eyes looking at the over-
hanging lights.
Only moments earlier, after a
good first round in which both
fighter landed with stinging jabs,
Frazier sent the challenger reeling
to the canvas with a hook that
splattered against Foster's jaw.
Foster, 6-foot-31/2 inches tall,
seemed to fall in sections. He rose
to his feet, groggily, his legs rub-
bery under him and after his

Wolverines continue

gloves had been wiped clean of
resin by referee Tom Brisco, heJ
sought to continue the battle.
It was fruitless.
Frazier, an awesome man in
a black beard and weighing 209
pounds against the frail-looking
188-pound frame of his opponent,
bored in and made the end merci-
fully quick.
The title bout was the second
half of a unique heavyweight
doubleheader. In the first bout,
over closed circuit television in
Madison Square Garden, George
Foreman of Hayward, Calif., also
scored a second-round technical
knockout over Boone Kirkman of
Renton, Wash., when the referee
stopped the bout 41 seconds into
the second round.
"I fought like I fight every day,"
Frazier said afterward, leaving the
ring in the sparsely-filled Cobo

hand. Bob should never have come

back after that first knockdown.
"I saw him wavering. He had
'no business going on. When he
tried to protect his body, I just
went to his head."
The left hand blow was a high
one on the head. Foster was still
groggy and reeling when he was
led out of theering by his white-
haired handler, Bill Gore.
In the first round, Frazier press-
ed the battle, as is his style-"I
come out smokin'," he says-but
he never got within good enough
range of the backpedaling, swiftly
moving light-heavyweight cham-
Once in a corner, Foster lashed
out and knocked Frazier's head
back with a polting left. But Fra-
zier absorbed the blow and moved,
all the stronger.
A buzz saw, he was pounding
awayatthe bell ending the first
round, which Frazier was given
by a slim 10-9 margin. Then came
the climactic second.
Fighting in a low crouch, snort-
ing an growling like a enraged
bull, thegheavyweight champion
became a fighting demon.
"I want Joe Frazier," yelled Mu-
hammad Ali after watching t h e
heavyweight champion from Phil-
adelphia knock out Foster.
"You will meet me soon," yelled
Ali, who was stripped of his heavy-
weight title after refusing induc-
tion into the armed forces.
During the brief fight Ali kept
up a stead, raucous commentary
calling both fighters "chumps"
and "bums."

REFEREE TOM BRISCOE signals the end of the count for Bob
Foster as he is knocked out after 49 seconds of the second round
in his fight with Joe Frazier last night at Cobo Arena. Foster was
floored twice in that round, first by a cyclonic left hook, and.
finally by a flurry of rapid jabs climaxed by another left, hook
to the jaw.

Despite the inadequacies of the
poll it is generally accepted by
sports fans as the final arbitor of
the dispute over the nation's top
football team. T h e Associated
Press began its polling of football
writers in 1936 to replace the old
Knute Rockne and Rissman Tro-
phies awarded to the nation's top
college football squad.
There have been major struc-
tural changes in the poll since its
beginnings. In the pre-World War

II years there were nearly 200 vot-
ers, and each selector -voted for
only ten teams until several years
ago. Another innovation of the
1960's was the institution of the
post-bowl final poll. It hasn't yet
been decided if there will be a
final poll next January.
Michigan has had a history of
success in football polls since be-
fore the inauguration of the AP
poll. In 1932 and 1933 the Wol-
verines were recognized as t h e
winners of the old Knute Rockne
Trophy. The AP poll listed Michi-
gan first in a special post-season
poll in 1947 and again gave the
Wolverines the top ranking in
1948. Since then no Michigan
team has ever taken first, but five
have finished in the top ten.
Michigan's Rose Bowl team of
1964 took fourth in the poll, high-
est since 1948, and last season's
Wolverines wound up eighth after
their upset win over the previous-
ly top ranked Ohio State Buck-
The UPI takes a different ap-
proach in its rating system by
polling 35 of the nation's top foot-
ball coaches. Among those coach-
es who get votes,are Ara Parase-
ghian of Notre Dame, Michigan
State's Duffy Daugherty, N or t h-
western's Alex Agase, and Ohio
State's Woody Hayes.
There's no assurance of more
fairness in the coaches' poll and
coaches may at times be likely to
favor t h e i r own teams. Hayes,
when asked who he voted for in
this week's coaches' poll kept the
public guessing with his tart re-
sponse, "I don't think you have
any right to ask me that."
