Blue comes alive for
national TV audience
By KATHY HENNEHAN
Who would have, believed it? The
Texas A&M game was supposed to be
close. But after two mediocre per-
formances against Duke and Navy,
Michigan roared back and crushed
the fifth-ranked Aggies 41-3 before a
regional television audience and a
crowd of 104,802.
The Wolverines celebrated'the 50th
anniversary game at Michigan Sta-
dium with several season highs: the
most points scored, the longest pass
play and the longest rushing gain
BUT PERHAPS the most satisfy-
ing aspect of the game was the
Wolverines' style of play. Bo Schem-
bechler, so often criticized for his
conservatism, looked downright dar-
ing next to Emory Bellard, his A&M
Consider the fact that Michigan
gained 101 yards on 19 attempts
through the air while the Aggies
posted only three. And Sdhembech;

abandon, accounting for two touch-
The Aggies, however, drew first
blood late in the first quarter on a
24-yard field goal from barefoot-
kicker Tony Franklin. The score was
set up after Michigan fullback Rus-
sell Davis committed his first of two
fumbles and Texas A&M recovered
at the Michigan 27.
DAVIS ENDED up with 110 yards
rpshing in 19 carries, scored two
touchdowns and was named Offen-
sive Player of the Game by ABC
Television and Chevrolet.
"Davis is good," joked Schembech-
ler. "If he keeps fumbling we'll not
be friends but he's still good."

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) -
The United States joined with the Soviet
Union yesterday in urging Israel to rec-

estinian people" and to grant a nego-

to their "representatives."
A joint declaration, designed to speed
up convening of a Geneva conference
on the Middle East, called also on Israel

If, perchance, you had gone for a Friday morning stroll by
the Law Quad, or if your daily constitutional lead you past the
Michigan League, chances are that you might very well have
encountered an unusual gathering.
In virtually all corners of the campus could be seen
umerous middle aged men and women, almost all bearing

Joining the Club is a rather simple matter: no private cor-
porations are allowed, members must keep informed on
group news and events, and they must each make a
minimum donation to the University of $10,000.
Wendell Lyons, Director of Development for the Univer-
sity, said he is proud of the 2,070-member organization.
