for Ducks' S ,plit-T
n,. . , = ? W~ W U'WUV I

In the wake of last Friday's
ragged scrimmage, Michigan's
football team pounded through a
grueling two and a half hour
workout in preparation for Satur-
day's opening encounter with
powerful Oregon.
The Ducks, easy 33-6 winners
over Idaho last Saturday, and last
year's 11th ranked team, come

to Ann Arbor with a big, fast and
experienced team, and Wolverine
Coach Chalmers "Bump" Elliott
expects plenty of trouble.
Scouted Oregon
Michigan this afternoon had the
benefit of a scouting report from
Saturday's game, but the advan-
tage gained by such a report may
well be lost in, the fact that
Oregon will have the first game
r jitters out of their system. But
regardless of that, Quarterback,
Dave Gross, the best at Oregon
since Norm Van Brocklin, and 5'
3%" scatback Cleveland Jones
lead the Ducks and can be counted
on to give the Wolverines some
anxious moments.
With only a couple of days left
to ready the squad for the Ducks,
Elliott sent the team through a
short defensive scrimmage against
Oregon's split-T offense, and then
worked on polishing his offense
in a dummy scrimmage.,

Reports Late
One Michigan athlete will be a
little late in starting his classes
this fall as he is a member of the
Eastern Canada Junior champion-
ship lacrosse team.
Bryan Gibson, senior letterman
for the Wolverine track squad, is
playing with the Ontario lacrosse
team that earlier this month cop-
ped the eastern title and is now
playing for the national crown.
The finals for the Canadian
national championship are being
held at New Westminster, British
Columbia (near Vancouver), and
at last report, the best-of-seven
series was tied 1-1. Gibson plans.

starting ends, dressed for practice
yesterday for the first time since
the opening practices. He had
been out with a knee infection.
However, because of the long lay-
off, it is still doubtful whether or
not he will see any action Satur-
day except possibly in a place-
kicking role.
Other than Halstead and the
usual number of bumps and
bruises following a heavy scrim-
mage, Michigan's physical condi-
tion as a squad is good, and bar-
ring any late injuries, the Wol-
verines should be near full
strength for the opener.
Elliot was plainly disappointed
with the dreary performance the
Michigan gridders put on Friday
in what will be the last full-dress
scrimmage before the Oregon con-
Although the regulars triumph-
ed over the reserves, 37-13, Elliot
termed the workout "thoroughly
"We'll have to improve a lot
before next week," he added.

BACK IN ACTION-Michigan's football fortunes took a turn for
the better yesterday with the return to action of letterman end
John Halstead. Halstead, who had not dressed for drills since the
opening days of practice, will probably see only limited action in
the Oregon game this Saturday.
