Passing Highlights "M" Drill

Coach Chalmers "Bump"
Elliott's Michigan gridders ran
through a snappy two hour pass-
ing drill yesterday in preparation
for the expected full scale scrim-
mage tomorrow or early next
Elliott withheld his charges
from any heavy contact drills
yesterday as with the season
opener against Oregon a scant
eight days away, he is becoming
wary of the injury bug which has
stricken Michigan during the last
few years.
With quarterbacks Dave Clinka,
John Stamos, and Bob Chandler


doing the throwing, the backs and
the ends polished pass patterns
while the line worked on blocking.
Then the Wolverines merged and
breezed thru a semi-live aerial
workout. Glinka, a promising soph
from Toledo, ran the number one
Said Elliott, "If we had to play
a game tomorrow, Glinka would
probably be my quarterback,
along with juniors Ken Turead,
at fullback and Bennie Mc Rae
at left half and either senior
Denny Fitzgerald or an other soph
Dave Raimey at right half."

Preparations For Oregon

With the opening game against
'Oregon only eight days away,
Michigan football coach Bump
Elliott is confronted with a grow-
ing list of injuries to key men,
especially at the already thin
guard position.
According to Elliott and team
physician Dr. A. W. Coxon, the
casualties include guards Dick
Syring, Lou Pavloff, Dick Syzman-
ski, and Charles Collins. Also
ailing are backs Ed Hood and Rudd
Van Dyne and end John Halstead.

Injuries have caused
Steve Stieler, tackle Ron
bach, and back Ken Miket
Converted Center

to leave

Syring, originally converted
from center to help out at guard,
is recovering from a sprained
back. He is expected to be in the
starting lineup against Oregon.
The Bay City senior missed all of
last year with a dislocated shoul-
Pavloff, a junior, submitted to
knee surgery this summer and is
slowly recovering. He is being
counted upon to play on one of the
three regular units employed by
The status of Collins, a Grand
Rapids sophomore, is in doubt. He
underwent knee surgery this week
at University Hospital. Syzman-
ski,. another sophomore, also had
a knee operation and will be lost
for the season.
Possibly the wierdest ailment is
the "Richard Nixon injury", the
personal property of John Hal-
stead. The big senior end, a re-
gular last year, received a nick
in the shin from a thrown kicking
tee and developed an infection.
He was recently released from the
hospital. Although the wound is

healing slowly, he will probably
be ready for service next week.
Hood Injured
Out from four to six weeks with
a fractured jaw is stocky sopho-
more halfback Ed Hood who has
been running with the third unit.
His immediate replacement ap-
pears to be either sophomore Jim
Ward or senior Gary McNitt.
During Wednesday's practice,
fullback Rudd Van Dyne, a letter-
man last season, suffered a dis-
located thumb which will keep
him out of action for several days.
Van Dyne had undergone two
operations to mend two dislocated
shoulders in the past.
On top of these losses are the
run of the mill bumps and bruises
found on any football team. First
team fullback Ken Tureaud is
recovering from contusions on an
elbow and center and former full-
back John Walker has just re-
covered from a back injury. Tackle
Bill Stine and Center John Hout-
man have just returned from the
sidelines, having shaken off minor
shoulder injuries.
No More Football
Stieler, a junior and former all-
Stater from Wyandotte, has been
advised by his personal physician
to give up football due to injuries
sustained last season.
Lauterbach, a 240 pounder, was
possibly the most promising of this
year's sophomore linemen, suffer-
ed from recurring headaches and
has been advised to quit by Uni-
versity doctors.
