Harmon, Durocher et al.
THERE oughta be a law that no commentary on Michigan football
be allowed until after the last game. That would make it easier on
this observer, who hates to go out on the proverbial limb one week,
then hide in seclusion for the next six days. It's easy for us to watch
an opening game, watch the home team win by a decisive 42-13
score, and then offer a theorem like this:
"Michigan, on the basis of its opening game against UCLA, should
be an odds-on favorite to ..."
Then comes next week. Make the words delicious because you may
have to eat them.
Fortunately for myself, I can escape this week unscathed. I
was able to enlist the aid of some dignitaries in the press box after
the game yesterday. They will proceed to go out on that thin branch
instead of me: Tom Harmon, Leo Durocher and Wally Weber.
Harmon, who used to scamper 60 yards through Ann Arbor traffic
s without being nudged, was back at Michigan Stadium in a different
capacity. He aired the Michigan-UCLA game back to CBS listeners
on the West Coast. No. 98 has been away from the competitive side
of football for a few years, but don't let his prematurely gray hair
fool'you. He still looks as if he could drive would-be tacklers dizzy:
The Football Hall-of-Famer thinks a lot of this year's Michigan
eleven. "They told me that Michigan is only third best in The Big
Ten,". he observed. "If that's true, I'd like to see Michigan State
and Ohio State. They must REALLY be good." He went on to say
that UCLA isn't too strong, mainly because of penalties inflicted
upon them by the Coast Conference. "But let's face it - Michigan will
be tough for any team this year."
What did he think of Bob Ptacek, Michigan's sophomore tail-
back? "Ptacek has the potential to be an all-American halfback."
Coming from one of the greatest of all-Americans, this statement
can't go unnoticed. Harmon was also impressed by Michigan's other
fine sophomore back, John Herrnstein. "Real fine. Real fine."
As for the Wolverines' two glaring weaknesses in the opening
games, fumbles and pass defense, Harmon wasn't too worried. "There
are two explanations for the fumbles: one, opening game jitters; and
two, UCLA tackled awfully hard." As for the sometimes confused pass
defense, Harmon thinks that a little more experience will sharpen it
UROCHER, who used to make his living as a baseball manager,
now adds color to NBC's football coverage. To say that he was
overly impressed by Michigan's victory would be an understatement.
He, couldn't stop talking about the Wolverines. Durocher,. who used
speed as a vital factor in winning Major League pennants, thinks that
speed will continue to spell victory for Michigan. "I don't see how
anyone can beat 'em," he bellowed. "Everyone can run. Ptacek is big,
but he can run. And that Pace - vooom, and he's off!"
I asked the manager-turned-announcer what he thought of Ron
Kramer. He thought that Kramer was one of the greatest athletes
he'd ever seen. I asked him if he'd think of making Kramer a base-
ball player. I don't think he heard the question.
Next was Wally Weber, 'M' freshman football coach, the man who
uses syllables at a wholesale rate. "Masterful quarterbacking on the
part of James Van Pelt, was, to my mind, the highlight of the game."
When asked if Michigan was holding back anything for next week's
tussle with Michigan State, Weber orated thusly: "One must always
be resourceful against tougher opponents. Our defense today could,
be considered a 'subdued offense'."
One last note on yesterday's post-game activity. Bennie Ooster-
baan, in the dressing room, won top honors in the Most Sober Com-
ment category. A reporter from the West Coast rushed up to him
and said, "See you on New Year's, Bennie." Oosterbaan, with a serious
look on his face, answered, "We're only thinking of Michigan State."
US Wins in Davis Cup Semi's
BROOKLYN (P)-Brooklyn's old
pro Dodgers, rolling behind the
superb pitching of Sal Maglie andj
Clem Labine, carried the National
League pennant race into tomor-
row's final regular season games
by sweeping a rhubarb-filled
doubleheader from Pittsburgh yes-
terday, 6-2 and 3-1.
The sweep pushed the Dodgers--
all but dead just 24 hours ago-
into first place over Milwaukee's'
Braves, who had lost a night game
at St. Louis. The Dodgers now are
92-61 with one game remaining
(against the Bucs tomorrow). The
Braves are 91-62 going into their
game with the Cardinals.
By taking the doubleheader, the
.. wins for Dodgers
Dodgers also eliminated Cincinnati
from the race. Although the Red-
legs won today at Chicago they are
only 90-63 for the season, and
even a victory in tomorrow's finale
would leave them short of Brook-
ST. LOUIS (P) -- The skidding
Milwaukee Braves' pennant hopes
suffered a vital body blow last
night as the St. Louis Cardinals
won a 12-inning thriller, 2-1, on
Rip Repulski's double and the
steady pitching of big Herm Weh-
The defeat put Milwaukee one
full game behind. the Brooklyn
Dodgers, who swept atdoubleheader
from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Mil-
waukee has a 91-62 record to 92-61
for the Dodgers with just one game
remaining for both clubs Sunday.
Repulski's game-winning blow
was only the fifth hit off south-
paw Warren Spahn.
The final inning started when
Alvin Dark grounded out but Stan
Musial then lined a double to
right center. Milwaukee decided to
issue an intentional walk to Ken
Boyer to bring up Repulski. Rip
thendrilled the ball off third base-
man Eddie Mathews' glove into
left field with Musial scoring the
Tigers' Frank Lary became the
American League's winningest pit-
cher yesterday with his 21st vic-
tory, a 9-1 decisiony over the Cleve-
The stocky righthander, who had
a mere 4-16 record on July 1, held
the Indians to eight hits. A single
by Kenny Kuhn and a double .by
Earl Averill in the seventh ac-
counted for their only run.
The Tigers collected 15 hits off
Art Houtteman and Ray Narleski
and five of them were for extra
bases. Harvey Kuenn and Al
Kaline homered and Kaline added
a double and single.

WASHINGTON (JP)-Evelio Her-
nandez, 24-year-old Cuban rookie
11-game losing streak to a halt
tonight when' he held Baltimore to
six hits and the Nats won, 7-1,
before 1,129 fans.

CLEVELAND (P)-Al Lopez,. the
patient and popular senor who
managed the Cleveland Indians to
one American League pennant and
five second place finishes, resigned
Saturday after "six trying years."
"I'm sorry we didn't do better,"
said the 48-year-old Lopez, whose
team will finish second behind the
New York Yankees again this year.
"There's a feeling in Cleveland
that we should have finished high-
er than second," he said. "The
tension has been a devil of a thing.
I have no plans. I'm going home
Monday." Home is Tampa, Fla.
where he was born.
The players seemed stunned
when they heard the announce-
ment as they arrived at the ball
park for Saturday's game against
the Detroit Tigers.
General Manager Hank Green-
berg said Lopez' decision came
as a surprise and a "great disap-

MAKE YOURSELF KNOWN to each of your instructors. If you do not
fully understand an assignment, don't hesitate to ask questions so that it
will be clear to you. Do more than the minimum in the preparation of each
assignment. The more you put into the study of any subject, the more your
interest will grow, and the greater your interest the easier the preparation. Be
ready and willing to contribute to the class discussion, but do not monopolize
more than your share of the time.
Each of your instructors has scheduled office hours. This is an oppor-
tunity given you for personal discussions with them. Take advantage of it
and make it known to them that you appreciate the privilege of meeting them
in a more informal way than is possible in the classroom. This shouldbe
done during the first few weeks. If you will show a genuine interest.; early
in the semester, the instructor will respond to that interest.
Sharpen your mental tools and then expect the most out of college.
