d Footbal Scrimmage





Ann Arbor's fickle weatherman
offered Michigan's hard working
football team its first taste of "fall
weather" and the spirited griddersj
took full advantage of it.
Abstaining from heavy contact
work for the greater part of the
session, Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
put the Wolverines through a
series of drills on blocking assign-
ments and signal practice.
Perfect Line Play
Linemen Willie Smith and Jerry
Bushong were put through their
paces to perfect their play tech-
niques while Tackle Tom Jobson
and End Gordy Morrow were side-
lined due to injuries.
Defense received the most at-
tention with the red-shirted re-
serves running pass plays from, the
T and . single - wing formations.
Sparkling -in defense were Reid
Bushong and Al Groce who slowed
lip the efforts of the offensive unit.
Lineup Shifted
The lineup which has been tout-
ed by many sportswriters to start
the Southern California game on
Sept. 27 was given first chance to
halt the offensive patterns. Brad
Myers, Bob Ptacek, John Herrn-
stein, Dick Syring and Stan Nos-
kin were juggled in defensive posi-
tions before the second and third
strings were put in the lineup.
The scheduled scrimmage was
held down to a 15 minute drill with
the probable members of the first
and second units, on mixed teams,
having a short game. Ptacek led
the blues and used the single wing
pattern . to advantage by both
running and using his improved
passing ability.

Fair Weather
NEWPORT, R.I. {P)-Ideal sail-
ing weather is forecast for the
opening race of the America's Cup
Series between defender Columbia
and Britain's Sceptre Saturday.
The-weather bureau looked into
dark, drizzling skies today and
gave the following long range fore-
"The weather will be fair with
winds south to southwest, increas-
ing in velocity from 10 to 20 miles
per hour."
The weather bureau said there
is a possibility of a low pressure
area moving into the yachting
scene Monday.

Noskin, who relied on the T
formation, starred in the passing
department. He was. able to pin-
point his receivers down field and
loft accurate aerials.
Regular practice will ;not be held
this morning with all players
pointing toward the final presea-
son scrimmage to be held on Sat-
urday at the stadium. Saturday
will also end the two-a-day prac-
tice sessions for the Wolverines.
Fight Hea d
NEW YORK M) - Promoter
Bill Rosensohn returned from
Sweden yesterday hopeful of
making a title fight between
heavyweight c h a m p io n Floyd
Patterson and- Sweden's unde-
feated Ingemar Johansson next
"Johansson is red hot now after
his one round knockout of Eddie
Machen," said Rosensohn. "He
and Patterson could draw a mil-
lion dollar gate and maybe twice
that on theater television.
"I think I can make the match.
I'm sure going to give it a great
try. New York, Los Angeles or
Chicago seem to be the best pos-
sible sites.
"I had some long talks with
Edwin A h 1 q u i s t, Johansson's
manager. As you know I offered
them $100,000 for a fight with.
Patterson. I'm sure we can get
together. I expect to see Gus
D'Amato (Patterson's manager)_
in, the next day or so to discuss
the fight with him.".
Rosensohn made his debut as
a fight promoter with the Patter-
son-Roy Harris title fight in Los
Angeles last month.
How about Sid Flaherty's.
(Machen's manager) claim that
Machen has a contract for a. re-
turn bout with Johansson before
Johansson could fight Patterson?
"From what I was able to gath-
er in my talks with Ahlquist that
contract is not legally binding,"
said Rosensohn. "I'm not worried
about it myself.
Rosensohn was among the 55,-
000 spectators who saw Johans-
son, the European champion;
knock out Machen,. the second
ranking contender, in the first
round at Goteborg last Sunday.

Three Michigan trackmen turn-
ed up in Europe this summer and
blazed over the tracks in some of
the finest performances in Wol-
verine history.
The trio included sprinter Tom
Robinson, hurdler Pete Stanger
and pole vaulter Eeles Landstrom.
All will be eligible in this year's
bid to get Michigan into the Big
Ten championship race.
Robinson, a stocky, 20-yr.-old
sophomore from the Bahamas,

to the same competitor earlier in
the 100-yd. dash at this summer's

Something new has been added.
For the past 34 years (since
Yost Field House was built in 1924)
the same. removable basketball
floor has withistood the pounding
of Wolverine cage stars. Removed
from the field house in August,
it has made way for a new $15,000
addition to the athletic plant.
"The switch has been in the
offing since last season," noted'
Athletic Director, H. 0. "Fritz".
Crisler, .adding, "and the board
took final action to buy the new
floor in May."..
Elated over the new varnished
surface, Coach Bill Perigo noted,
"It. is probably as good as any

Tennis Round
PARIS (IP)-Frank Sedgman of
Australia. and Panch6 Gonzales of
Los Angeles yesterday advanced to
the semifinals of the Paris Inter-

Sedgman defeated Pancho Se-

Gonzales beat Paul Remy, France,

floor in use in the country right
now." Reasons for his happiness
were the probable improvements
slated for Michigan basketball
"The floor will probably speed
up our game and add spark to our
fast break offense," announced
Perigo. He also felt that it. would
make the players more confident
to bounce passes than they had
been with the old floor which had
many dead spots.
"Playing on the new floor should
also increase player confidence in
their, entire game," added Asst,
Coach Dave Strak. He also stated
that from limited practice, Michi-
gan players have felt that the.new
playing surface was not as hard
on their legs.
Terry Miller, Wolverine guard,
who has been working out .recently
felt that he would have much more
ability to move down court on the
fast break and still be-sure of him-
self. His view was echoed by other
players who, have been working
out individually during the week.
Need Home Advantage
First major test of the infant
area will come on Oct. 15th when
basketball practice begins. "The
players will have to workout for
awhile before they begin to feel
at home on the floor," noted Strak.
"The home advantage;" he add-
ed, "is also the psychological effect
of the home crowd and their sup-
port of the team." Strak also felt

that team spirit and improvement
are very 'contingent on the above
One slight improvement, how-
ever, might improve the atmos-
phere in the field house. "We're
going to patch up the leaks in the
roof," announced Crisler. Doomed
in this operation will be the re-
curring puddles of water and the
flying bats during basketball
The repairing of the roof will
end the remodeling of the field
house which is the oldest one in
the Big Ten. While the floor was
the oldest one in service, Crisler
noted, "it still has a great deal
of good serviceleft in it.",
Attesting to this was Perigo
who added, "for the amount of
wear it has withstood- and the
countless times it has been shifted
around, it is in remarkably good
