By HAL APPLEBAUM
The Blues took an early lead
and then held on to defeat the
Whites, 36-21, in Michigan's intra-
squad football play at Ferry Field1
yesterday.
In the first scrimmage held in
recent years at the old stadium
the Blues, composed of second,
fourth, 'sixth an4 eighth units,
outhustled and outplayed the
Whites, consisting of the odd num-
bered units, including the first
team, for most of the two and one-
half hour scrimmage.
First Team Contained
The first team, running against
the fourth unit for most of the
day, was bottled up for the most
part until late in the scrimmage.
Then head Coach Bump Elliott.
sent the first and second teams
against one another for the first
time. The Whites (or first unit)
had possession of the ball on their{
own 20-yard line. Performing as
they had previously in the after-
noon, they wound up back on their
own five-yard line.
Blues Stall
Darrell Harper then punted. The
kick was returned 10 yards by Ben-
nie McRae to the White 31. From
that point, John Stamos hit Bob
Brown on a short pass, Phil Wynn
ran up the middle and McRae
swept the right end. The Blues
M To Play
SMU in 1963
Michigan will open the 1963
football season against Southern
Methodist in the Michigan Sta-
dium.
Michigan's other intersectional
game will be against Navy, also
at home, on Oct. 5. The SMU
game is Sept. 28.
Michigan's 1963 schedule 'in-
cludes seven home games. Besides
Southern Methodist and Navy, the
Wolverines will also meet Michi-
gan State, Purdue, Northwestern,

moved to the White three-yard
line.
There they stalled and the
White's began to turn the tide
that had been going against them
all afternoon by commencing a 97-
yard march, culminated by Brad
Myers six-yard scoring plunge.
The Whites moved steadily the
length of the field with most of
the key yardage being picked up
on three short passes from Stan
Noskin to fullback Paul Raeder.
Harper and Myers also con-
tributed solid gains to' the attack.
Hannah Leads Attack
Early in the scrimmage the
fourth unit, led by the passing of
Don Hannah, had unexpected suc-
cess against 'the first unit scoring
two touchdowns against their op-
ponent's one.
The porous pass defense, which
hampered the Wolverines.last sea-
son, had enough holes in it yes-
terday to allow three, long touch-
down passes plus one that was
called back.

Hannah threw two, one to end
John Zubkus good for 31 yards
and the other, a 45-yarder, to
Jerry Leith. Both of these passes
were thrown against the first team.
Stamos connected with Gary
McNitt on a 75-yard pass-run play
for -the other long gainer. This
play was reminiscent of last year's
Illinois game as McNitt was 20
yards behind his defender when
he caught the ball.
Noskin Pass Nullified
A 50-yard TD pass from Noskin
to Myers was called back by an
offside penalty.
There were long runs, too. With
the Whites trailing 6-0 Brad Myers
went 70 yards on a reverse to tie
the contest at 6-6.
Moments later Bennie McRae
of, the Whites broke the tie for
good with a 45-yard jaunt.
Steve Stieler, a freshman center
from Wyandotte, was the only
casualty of the hard-hitting ses-
sion. Stieler was taken to Univer-
sity Medical Center for x-rays on
his injured side.

The varsity outfit scored eight
touchdowns to one for the opposi-
tion.
Larry Bielat of Center Line, now
ranked as No. 2 quarterback, was
running the team when five of the
touchdowns were scored. Bielat
passed for two of them. Tommy
Wilson of Lapeer, the starting
string quarterback, worked his
team down for two touchdowns.
Daugherty's top team had the
ball five times before it was able
to score. Gary Ballman, a sopho-
more right half from East Detroit,
intercepted a pass and showed
spring spectators a classic example
of broken field running with an
80-yard jaunt for the first score.
Ballman also scored on a 58-yard-
pass-run play from Wilson.
