Quan tico


Special to The Daily
QUANTICO, Va. - Michigan's
spare host of thinclads ran into
rainy weather, a water-logged
field and stiff competition yester-
day at the opening track carnival
of the East-the Quantico Relays.
The Wolverines entered teams
in the two and one mile relays
and also competed in the pole
vault and quarter-mile run yes-
terday after passing up the first
day of competition-in the two-day
Penn State's crack team of
speedsters outlegged the Wolver-
ines in the two-mile relay to tie
for top team honors with Win-
ston-Salem Teachers.
Nittany Lions Win Easily
The Nittany Lions easily pulled
away from the Wolverine team of
Dave Martin, Wally Schafer, Tony
Seth and Earl Deardorff to win
by 12 yards.
Michigan's strongest combina-
tion relay entered in the mile
event, finished third to Morgan
State and Villanova. The Michi-
gan quartet of Tom Robinson,
Bryan Gibson, Dick Cephas and
'T'ony Seth finished less than a
second off the winning time of
3:17.6 with Seth anchoring the

team with a strong winning bid.
At the finish State's Norm Ellis
put wings to his feet inches be-
fore the tape to hold back Seth,
as well as Villanova's great Ed
Landstrom Places Second
Michigan individual entrants,
Eeles Landstrom and Marsh Dick-
erson finished respectively second
and fourth in the pole vault and
quarter-mile run. Capt. Mamon
Gibson rounding out the trio of
Wolverine individual entries fin-
ished tied for third in the vault.
Landstrom going over the bar
at 14'6" was outclassed for the
top spot by the national outdoor
record holder Bob Gutowski, for-
merly of Occidental college and
now competing for the Quantico
Marines. His vault was 14'9". Gib-
son cleared' the bar at 14'.
Dickerson opposed a speedy ar-
ray of sprinters in the quarter-
mile event paced by Basil Ince of
Tufts. Winning time was 45.4.
Conditions Abominable
Conditions for the meet were
abominable as the heavily rain-
swept track was hidden in spots
under a couple of inches of water.
But 200 stars representing 36

colleges, clubs and other military
camps lustered an otherwise dis-
mal day.
Elias Gilbert was the individual
standout for the Salem team as
he paced them to wins in all three
Calhoun Wins
Olympic hurdles champion, Lee
Calhoun whipped Gilbert by a
couple of feet in the 120-high
hurdles in 14.1 to mar the Salem
star's individual glory. This was
Calhoun's first meet since 1957.
He was suspended last year by the 4.
AAU for irregularities.
Penn State also finished with
three relay triumphs -- one yes-
terday to add to a pair on F Iday.
Moran Wins Mile
Ed Moran, Penn Sttae's cap-
tain and ace-of-all races anchored
the team to its first two triumphs,
but yesterday confined his efforts
to the mile. He won it by a couple
of yards over Peter Close of St.
John's of New York in 4:21.2.
It was strictly a race between
Moran and Close but Moran with
a strong finishingkick hit the MARSH DICKERSON
tape about two yards to the good. ... 4th in 440
In the 100-yd. dash, stubby Ira
Murchison of the Chicago Track DISTINCTIVE
and Field Club crossed the sloppy
track in :09.8 to take first. Wol-Haircuttig
verine's ace dash-man Tom Rob-
inson wasn't entered in the event. To please you
Cantello of Quantico headed It Costs No More to have the best

HIGH FLYING PAIR-Eeles Landstrom (right), greatest pole
vaulter in Michigan history, vaulted 14'8" to place second to Bob

Gibson tied for third place with a jump of 14'.

Elliott Looking for Six Starters, Reserve Strength

Bump Elliott will be seeking to,
fill six openings in the starting
lineup as well as conducting a
search for depth among the 90
candidates who will open spring
football practice Monday.
In his first year at the helm of
the Wolverines, Elliott must re-
place ends Walt Johnson and
Gary Prahst, and Gerry Marcin-
iak, center Jim Dickey, quarter-
back Bob Ptacek and John Herrn-
stein, Jim Byers and Gene Sisin-
Yak who shared the. fullback
chores besides coming up with
adequate replacements from a
squad which he admits is slightly
on the thin side.
In runing down the list of can-
didates Elliott declined to com-
ment on his freshmen, who will
Soccer Meet
Starts Today
A six-week soccer tournament
opens this afternoon at Wines
Field with International Team vs.
4- Ann Arbor Germania at 1 p.m.
and Turkey vs. Flint immediately
Teams will switch opponents
each Sunday. A cup will be
awarded to the winner May 24.
The International and Turkey
teams are composed of students
while the other two are hometown

have varsity status for the first
"At present the freshmen are
unknown quantities. On the basis
of scrimmages among the fresh-
men in the fall we can get some
idea of their abilities, but in the
course of a school year a freshman
will develop more than any other
player," he stated.
Reevaluation Necessary
"As a result our evaluations
may have to be drastically
changed. In the fall a freshman
may also make a poor showing
due to the difficulty in orienting
himself to college life."
"During the first two weeks of
spring practice there will probab-
ly be a number of changes in posi-
tions among the freshmen, due-'to
our relative lack of knowledge
about them," Elliott continued.
Unfair To Players
"At present it would not be fair
to the boys to say that they are
definitely rated by the coaching
staff, although we do have an idea
who among them are good foot-
ball players.'
"As far as the veterans go, we
have a good line on all of them,
but there are none of them who
are assured of anything," he
Johnson, Halstead at End
"At the ends Bob Johnson and
John Halstead have the inside
track for the jobs. They're both
good football players, but they
were second string last season,"
Elliott stated.
ZHalstead will miss spring prac-

tice as he is currently a regular
on the Michigan baseball team.
Also missing spring sessions for
other varsity sports are center
Dick Syring, end Joe Brefeld, and
halfback Wilbur Franklin in base-
ball and Don Deskins and Jerry
Bushong on the track squad.
Elliott commented on this group
saying, "As they are all veterans
we know pretty much what they
can do 'and. as long as they are
making useful contributions to
other teems they are excused
from football drills."
Deskins Set
"Deskins appears to be set at
one tackle with Tommy Jobson
and some highly rated freshmen
and reserves battling at the other
tackle post," he mentioned.
The first year mentor continued,
"Jobson played guard last year,
but in our switch from an un-
balanced to a balanced line the
right guard is switched to left
tackle. While this appears to be a
drastic change it really isn't, as in
the different systems the duties
of these two linemen are the
Genyk at Guard
"Due to this change George
Genyk will be a guard instead of
a tackle. Genyk is a good bet to
start the season at right guard,
competition for the left guard spot
will be between Alex Callahan,
Mike Fillichio and Paul Poulus,"
Elliott added.
"Center appears to be our strong-
est spot in the line with Syring,
Gerry Smith and freshmen Steve
Steller battling for the position,"
h. said in his. concluding remarks
about the linemen.
Elliott started his discussion of
the backfield at quarterback, com-
menting, "Stan Noskin is number
one, but reserve Don Hannah and
freshmen Paul Palmer, Paul Ada,
Bill Bretts and John Stamos, will
be given a good shot at the job.
At present we don't contemplate
shiftingany other player to this
"Noskin did not have a good
year last fall, but we know he has
the ability. He should fit better
into our new winged-T offense,"
the blond coach added.
"At the halfbacks we have depth
with men like Fred Julian, Darrell
Harper, Brad Myers, Reid Bushong
and Harry Newman returning.
John Haley and Bennie MacRae
up from the freshmen squad may

help us in our quest for greater'
backfield speed, but they are un-
The battle for the halfback
berths should be among the best.
There will be hard competition
for bath of these berths, he went
on to say.
Concluding the squad list lie
said, "At fullback, John Walker,
Dennis Fitzgerald, Paul Raeder
and freshmen Bill Tunnicliff will
be the top candidates."
In conclusion Elliott said, "One
thing is certain, everybody, veter-
ans, reserves, freshmen and any-
one else who come out will receive
a good look.
