The Injury, Jinx
THE COLLEGIATE gridiron season has begun. The few contests
played last night, and the many more that will take place this
afternoon mark the opening of another season of battling on the
nation's collegiate football fields. Although Michigan and the other
Big Ten schools don't begin until next Saturday, many of the games
that have already taken place are of interest.
Southern California, Michigan's opponent at Ann Arbor next
Saturday, opened its season with a 22-8 loss to Oregon State, pre-
season pick to represent the lame-duck Pacific Coast Conference in
the Rose Bowl this year.
Meanwhile the Wolverines are having many problems of their
own. They will scrimmage in Michigan Stadium this afternoon. The
session is closed to all spectators except a select group of press men,.
This will probably be the last scrimmage before the opening game,
according to coach Bennie Oosterbaan.
The problems that plague Oosterbaan and his aides are primarily
in the form of injuries. The list of those not expected to take part.
this afternoon includes half of the starting team. Walt Johnson, first-
string end, has a hip injury; Brad Myers, who can start at either
halfback, has a bad knee; Don Deskins, the burly sophomore who
has taken over at right tackle, is suffering from a shoulder injury;
Gary Prahst, the other starting end, still is bothered by the knee in-
jury sustained in the first scrimmage of the season; Captain John
Herrnstein, Wolverine fullback, probably will stay out because of his
broken nose and cheekbone.
Aside from these first-stringers, Alex Callahan has a bad back
and tape allergy, sophomore end John Halstead - who was stand-
ing in for Prahst - has hurt his shoulder, and Tom Jobson has a
bad knee. Although all of these players have been out at practice,
they cannot be counted on for contact work.
Injuries have already removed Jim Byers, who was counted on as
starting center this fall, when he hurt his knee in an early practice
session. Oosterbaan points out that of the three sophomores who have

Although many observers seem to feel that Michigan is hit hard-
er than most other teams, perhaps the crucial thing is that the Wol-
verines don't have the necessary depth to replace losses without
hurting the potential of the team. Of course, few schools do, but
many of those few are on the annual Michigan schedule.
... One Week To Repair
SPEAKING OF that schedule - it is only a week away. Injuries or
not, Oosterbaan will have to field a team in just one week. A
team that is rated lower than any Michigan outfit in many years -
one begins to wonder if the sports forecasters were forecasting in-
juries along with everything else. The Wolverines will certainly live
up- to their low rating if they can only field half of their good players.
On the other hand - if everyone is well, and stays that way
throughout the season -- Michigan could surprise, some' people.

Briggs Cunningham, famed as an
auto - racer and yachtsman
throughout the world, and the
crew reads as a who's-who of the
United States' sailing personnel.
The British boat, the Sceptre,
is a newcomer, and has never been
in a race, while the Columbia has
raced 29 official times. However,
the Bnglish crew doesn't feel that
they are at a disadvantage.
Being an unknown quantity, the
Sceptre has been closely observed
by Americans, but no one can
really say that they are acquainted
with its possibilities.
Actually, it is a battle of ideas
and knowledge on sailing. The
two boats represent a difference of
opinion on the parts of the op-
posing crews. They have different
construction below the water line,
and are using different sail.
Columbia Has Edge
The expert opinion here ranks
them about equal, although the
Columbia is given the edge in
rough water and high wind. This
is perhaps an advantage that will
pay off, since Newport is famed
for stormy weather in late Septem-
The forecast is fair weather,
but tricky and shifting winds. No
flat promises of any part cular
wind direction could be made to
the yachtsmen, and it may be an
exciting and nerve-racking race
A high front moved in yesterday,
bringing cool temperatures and
northerly and northwesterly winds
ranging from 15 to 20 miles an
hour. If the temperature rises to-
day, a light sea breeze from the
southeast should take over.
In such a light breeze the two
ships would be rated about equal.
Then it will be a test of crews, and
of the differences in shape and
sail. Such a test of the two op-
posing designs has never been
made up to this- time.-as the
Sceptre's is relatively new.
The British have never won the
cup since the American crew of
the America (thus the name Amer-
ica's Cup) won it in 1851. This
year's English crew seems more
confident, with their new sloop,
than in many years.
Bruce Goldsmith, a member of
the Michigan sailing club the past
few years, and one of the top,
skippers nationally, will defend
his rebel class national title today
at Devil's Lake, Mich.
Goldsmith, of the Devil's Lake
Yacht Club, will compete' in a
field of 45. The previous high in
a national regatta has been 28.
Two Races Tomorrow
The rebel class of sailing vessel
is a fiberglas-plastic craft which
is small, light and fast. There will
be two races held today and one
tomorrow, the winner being the
one who finishes highest \overall
in the three.
During the regatta a trophy
will be presented to the associa-
tion for presentation to the win-
ner. The award will be made for
the first time to the 1958 chain-
pion at the spring meeting.
Goldsmith, who won the na-
tional nipper class championship
at the age of 11, has been an out-
standing sailor with the Michigan
club. He won the present rebel
championship at Put-in-Bay,
Ohio, in 1957.
