M', Wildcat Passers Get
Weekb' Gridiron Honors

* .

Quarterbacks Duncan MacDon-
ald of Michigan and Dick Thomas
of Northwestern were named Play-
ers-of-the-Week by Daily sports
driters after the Wolverines' 20-12
conquest of the Wildcats last Sat-
Although actually in the game
for only a few minutes, MacDon-
ald accounted for all of Michigan's
points. The blond, lanky junior
came off the bench in the waning
minutes of the first quarter to lead
a 72-yard scoring drive which
he climaxed with a touchdown toss
to Tony Branoff, the play cover-
ing 44 yards altogether.
* * *
LATE IN THE second quarter
MacDonald took over the Wolver-
ine helm with the ball on the
Wildcat's 39-yard line. On the first
play he completed an 18-yard aer-
ial to end Gene Knutson. After a
roughing penalty had moved the
pigskin to the Northwestern 6-
yard line, he clicked on a short
jump-pass to John Veselenak in
the end zone with a scant two sec-
onds remaining in the half.
Returning near the end of the
third period after first string
quarterback Lou Baldacci had
been injured, MacDonald needed
only two plays to score from his
own 31-yard line.
After sending Branoff around
left end for 20 yards, "Dunc" faded
back and flipped the ball toward
the right sideline. Ted Kress pulled
in the pass and raced down the
sideline behind a bevy of blockers
and cut diagonally to his left to
chalk up Michigan's third tally via
MacDonald's arm and put the
game on ice.

TO MAKE things complete, the
Flint youth kicked 'two extra
points one each after the second
and third scores. His sensational
passing showed up in the statis-
tics as six completitions in 11 at-
tempts for 128 of the 144 yards
gained by the Wolverines through
Thomas, who had established

What's buzzin', Cousin?
A sophomore at a midwestcrn college was bothered by buzz-
ing in his ears and headaches. He went to doctor after doctor
...had his appendix and tonsils removed... his teeth pulled.
But nothing helped. Finally, the doctors gave up and told
him he had only 6 months to live.
The young fellow decided to "live it up" for his last 6
months. First, he went to his college sportswear shop for the
smartest sport shirts money could buy. Naturally, he chose
Van Heusen's VAN GAB.
"VAN GAB is completely washable," beamed the sales-
man. "See the saddle-stitched trim about the collar and pock-
ets. Feel the silky texture of the fabric. And only $5.95. With
a 15 neck like yours, I suggest a Medium size."
"Don't waste my time," snapped the fellow. "Give me one
of each of the 18 smart solid colors. Size rz."
"But sir," gasped the salesman, "your neck is much larger
than a 14. You need at least a 15-
"I've worn a 14 all my life, and I don't feel like changing
now," replied the youngster, greatly annoyed.
"Okay," muttered the salesman. "But I warn you, that
tight collar will give you buzzing in the ears and headaches!"
